One of Quebec’s most cherished bicycling routes takes cyclists through vistas like this one, looking out on the islands and wide waters of the St. Lawrence River near the village of Kamouraska, Sept. 8, 2021. This maritime region of Quebec normally draws plenty of visitors from Europe, the U.S. and other parts of Canada, attracted by the bicycling, hiking, whale-watching and natural beauty. But it is only starting to open up to outsiders again, thanks to relaxed rules for entering Canada. (AP Photo/Calvin Woodward)

This image provided by Abbot in September 2021 shows packaging for their BinaxNOW self test for COVID-19. President Joe Biden is betting on millions more rapid, at-home tests to help curb the latest deadly wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is overloading hospitals and threatening to shutter classrooms around the country. But the tests have already disappeared from pharmacy shelves in many parts of the U.S., and manufacturers warn it will take them weeks to ramp up production, which was slashed after demand for the tests plummeted over the summer of 2021.

FILE - This file photo provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows a feeding female Anopheles Stephensi mosquito crouching forward and downward on her forelegs on a human skin surface, in the process of obtaining its blood meal through its sharp, needle-like labrum, which it had inserted into its human host. In a study published Wednesday, Sept. 22, 2021, scientists say there is evidence a resistant form of malaria is spreading in Uganda, in a worrying sign the top drug used against the parasitic disease could ultimately be rendered useless without concerted efforts from countries and global health officials.
