This undated electron microscope image made available by the U.S. National Institutes of Health in February 2020 shows the Novel Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, yellow, emerging from the surface of cells, blue/pink, cultured in the lab. Also known as 2019-nCoV, the virus causes COVID-19. The sample was isolated from a patient in the U.S. An extensive study of thousands COVID-19 patients in Ontario hospitals has found links between the severity of their infections and the levels of common air pollutants they experience.

This March 2022 photo provided by Morgan Fabry shows her with her daughter in Chicago. Some U.S. moms looking for baby formula that is in short supply are dealing with another layer of stress - people asking why they don't just breastfeed. Exclusive breastfeeding is recommended for the first six months of life by major medical entities like the World Health Organization, giving rise to the saying, “breast is best.” But breastfeeding doesn’t work for everyone, and that mantra is only adding to the stress Fabry and other parents feel as the shortage drags on.
