    “If you were vaccinated, you don’t have to wear a mask outside,” Dr. Andrew Fauci, President Biden’s chief medical adviser, said to CBS reporters Thursday on “CBS This Morning”. “If you were going into a completely crowded situation where people are essentially falling all over each other, then you wear a mask. But any other time, if you’re vaccinated and you’re outside, put aside your mask. You don’t have to wear it.”

    New COVID treatment 85% effective

    A joint-venture between Vir Biotechnology and GlaxoSmithKline applied to the U.S. FDA for emergency use authorization for their COVID-19 dual-action antibody which in a phase-3 clinical trial showed a remarkable 85% reduction in hospitalization or death for patients with confirmed disease.

    Similar antibody treatments from Eli Lilly and Regeneron, have not been widely used because they require intravenous infusion in a hospital setting soon after patients become symptomatic. The Vir-Glaxo venture aims to develop an intramuscular injection which would be targeted to the pre-symptomatic at-risk population as soon as disease is detected by testing.

    The new antibody is effective against all COVID variants according to a company spokesman.
