As remote learning continues, districts boost outreach to students – News – telegram.com

WORCESTER — The school system’s switch to remote learning this year has created unprecedented hardships. But it may have also pushed the district to more fully address a problem that existed even before the pandemic, according to the school superintendent.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A huge international study of a COVID-19 vaccine that aims to work with just one dose is getting underway as top U.S. health officials sought Wednesday to assure a skeptical Congress and public that they can trust any shots the government ultimately approves.

Hopes are high that answers about at least one of several candidates being tested in the U.S. could come by year’s end.

‘President Trump is still trying to sabotage the work of our scientists and public health experts for his own political ends.’ — Sen. Patty Murray

“We feel cautiously optimistic that we will be able to have a safe and effective vaccine, although there is never a guarantee of that,”
