    How to watch the Cincinnati Bengals

    The long-awaited 2023 AFC Championship game is finally here. The Cincinnati Bengals will face off against the Kansas City Chiefs today for the AFC title and the right to advance to the Big Game in February to face the NFC champions, the Philadelphia Eagles.

    The Cincinnati Bengals play the Kansas City Chiefs at 3:30 p.m. EST on Sunday, Jan. 29, 2023.

    The Cincinnati Bengals - Kansas City Chiefs game will be broadcast at 3:30 p.m. on CBS. The game will also be streaming live on Paramount+.

    Paramount+ has two subscriber tiers available -- the $5 per month "Essential Plan," a budget-minded tier with ads, and the $10 per month "Premium Plan," which costs more but is ad-free. Paramount+ also offers a one-week free-trial period, so if you were thinking of trying the platform, you can catch a Sunday of football on CBS risk-free.

    Subscribers to the Walmart+ shopping service now get Paramount+ included in their subscription at no extra cost.

    Walmart+ members get free access to the ad-supported Paramount+ Essential plan. Paramount+ Essential includes tens of thousands of movies and TV episodes, including "Sonic the Hedgehog 2," "Yellowstone" spin-off "1883," "Star Trek: Lower Decks," "NCIS" and "Survivor." Perhaps most importantly, Essential plan members get access to NFL on CBS live.

    CBS Essentials and Paramount+ are both subsidiaries of Paramount.

    NFL+ lets you stream games exclusively on your mobile device or tablet. Starting at $5 per month or $30 annually, an NFL+ subscription gives you mobile or tablet access to live out-of-market preseason games, live local and primetime regular season and postseason games, live game audio for every game and more.

    If you want to catch NFL games without paying for a cable or streaming subscription, an indoor HD digital TV antenna is the way to go. It'll deliver any live-aired, free-TV NFL games in your area, plus all the other over-the-air content available in your area. Just connect the antenna to your set, and watch. It's the 20th-century TV-viewing experience with 21st-century technology.

    Crew members from the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District responded to a Tesla that was "engulfed in flames" due to a battery fire, officials said in a tweet.

    Her publicist said she died following a battle with cancer.

    The Molotov cocktail's bottle broke and the synagogue was undamaged, police said. No one was injured.

    PagerDuty CEO Jennifer Tejada quoted the civil rights in an email a critic called an "all time classic bad layoff announcement."

    The unionization effort at Trader Joe's comes amid a larger wave of organizing largely led by younger workers.

    U.S. employers typically finish their annual budgets in January and start advertising for open roles soon thereafter.

    Single women own about 10.7 million homes compared to 8.1 million for single men, according to a LendingTree analysis.

    "Trans kids are kids — they deserve to grow up without constant political attacks on their lives and health care," wrote the ACLU's Utah chapter on Twitter.

    Members of Congress, the president, vice president and other administration officials and their guests are invited to Thursday's prayer breakfast.

    On this "Face the Nation" broadcast, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and Sens. Mark Warner and Marco Rubio join Margaret Brennan.

    Assistant Attorney General Carlos Uriarte sent a letter to the leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Saturday.

    "I want to find a reasonable and a responsible way that we can lift the debt ceiling but take control of this runaway spending," McCarthy told "Face the Nation."

    The Department of Veterans Affairs is urging millions of veterans exposed to burn pits to file claims with the department after the PACT Act expanded health coverage. Norah O'Donnell sat down with VA Secretary Denis McDonough to see how the department is handling the largest health care expansion for veterans in decades.

    "We have discovered more than a thousand burial sites before in Luxor, but this is the first time we find one from the 13th Dynasty," said antiquities official Dr. Fathy Yaseen.

    Sunny War’s story is one of talent, tenacity, addiction and survival. From her new album "Anarchist Gospel," War performs "New Day."

    Sunny War's story is one of talent, tenacity, addiction and survival. Michelle Miller spoke with War about her remarkable journey and how she's arrived at her current sound.

    Streaming company said a crackdown is coming by March, but a similar effort in other countries yielded mixed results.

    Digital media firm says it will use artificial intelligence to create personality quizzes and generate write-ups.

    ZDNet Editor-in-Chief Jason Hiner explains best practices for setup and success of smart home security systems.

    Event-goers have found themselves ejected from games because they work for law firms involved in litigation with MSG.

    Meta says it will reinstate former President Donald Trump's Facebook and Instagram accounts two years after they were suspended in the wake of the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Mike Isaac, a technology correspondent for The New York Times, joins Errol Barnett and Lana Zak to explain what's behind the decision.

    San Diego's usually blue waves recently turned a bright fuchsia, and scientists are explaining why.

    The mummy of an ancient Egyptian named Hekashepes represents two remarkable firsts, but it wasn't the lead scientist's favorite discovery at Saqqara this week.

    But it will miss, the space agency says, in one of the closest encounters of its type ever.

    "We have discovered more than a thousand burial sites before in Luxor, but this is the first time we find one from the 13th Dynasty," said antiquities official Dr. Fathy Yaseen.

    President Biden spoke with Tyre Nichols' parents over the phone and offered his condolences ahead of the public release of the video. In a statement, Mr. Biden said he was outraged and deeply pained to see the horrific video. The president added while the footage will leave people justifiably outraged, he joins the Nichols family in calling for peaceful protest.

    Memphis police director C.J. Davis describes the officers' actions in the Tyre Nichols police stop video as heinous, reckless and inhumane. Davis says she could only stomach watching the video once. In an interview with CBS News' Jeff Pegues, Davis says she still doesn't understand why the officers went so far.

    Tyre Nichols was on his way home when Memphis Police pulled him over on Jan. 7. Disturbing video from a surveillance camera and police bodycams show officers tasing Nichols, tackling him to the ground and striking him repeatedly with their boots and batons as he wails, screams for his mother and cries "I'm just trying to go home." Nichols died three days later. Protesters took to the streets across the country after the release of the video. Elise Preston reports.

    Four videos released by the city of Memphis show different angles of Tyre Nichols being pepper sprayed, kicked in the head while being restrained, punched and struck multiple times with a baton.

    "He'll be cheering us all on from the sidelines," Sanchez said of Amazon and Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos, who is also her boyfriend.

    After 32 launches from Rocket Lab's New Zealand facility, the company is now set for regular flights from Virginia's Eastern Shore.

  •  Things you buy through our links may earn New York a commission Playing a breakout character on a hit sitcom can be both a gift and a curse Everyone now knows who you are but they also know who they want you to be For many years in viewers eyes Aubrey Plaza was her Parks and Recreation character April Ludgate She was an irritable over it misanthrope prone to withering sarcasm essentially MTV s Daria for a new generation It didn t help matters that she once played Daria in a viral College Humor video or voiced the titular character in 2014 s Grumpy Cat movie a project I wouldn t know how to explain to a young person without being even more embarrassed of my generation than usual In the years since however Plaza has been doing the difficult work of torching her former typecasting without the telegraphed intentionality of a Disney star now working blue She slowly built up a stable of varied performances in dark hip indies she produced herself such as Ingrid Goes West and Black Bear along with the occasional fratty comedy and the lesser of two recent Child s Play reboots the movie not the show Plaza has worked so steadily and accrued so much goodwill that her hosting SNL for the first time in 2023 feels bizarrely belated It also feels right on schedule Between starring in timely critical darling Emily the Criminal the inaugural release from her production company and eating up a meaty role in The White Lotus the closest thing to a monoculture hit we now have 2022 was Aubrey Plaza s year Those two parts were so distinct and different from each other that one need not even bother pointing out that they both feel like entirely different species than April Ludgate Plaza has so successfully shed the skin of her first defining character that it s almost as jarring as it is nostalgic to see her revive Ludgate for a reunion with her Parks costar Amy Poehler in the middle of hosting SNL While the episode gave Plaza the chance to let loose as a wide assortment of weirdos it also played at times like a perfunctory checklist of all the pop culture and political detritus of the month plus since the last episode aired Here are the highlights When he hosted the show last month Austin Butler had an adorable and touching story about why getting to do so was a dream come true Unfortunately for him that story did not involve having once worked as a page at Saturday Night Live so Aubrey Plaza wins She also once played an NBC page on an episode of 30 Rock She spends the bulk of her charming monologue giving viewers a tour of the studio complete with the same kind of made up factoids she has mentioned in interviews she used to lay on audiences when she was giving those tours for real Nobody could accuse Miss France Eva Colas of holding anything back in her moment of truth Nor would they accuse anyone involved in the SNL sketch based on that moment from last week s Miss Universe pageant one of several shows still on the air where we rate women as Kenan Thompson s host character puts it of doing so either Plaza brings something to Miss France s disturbed screeching that makes a one note joke funnier than it should be Meanwhile Tony Hawk who is also there for some reason gets in on the shouting game with gusto At this point Nelson Franklin Harvey Guill n and Jon Lovitz have all played George Santos the Talented Mr Ripley of congressmen in various late night television appearances Now Bowen Yang has joined their ranks since there was no way SNL could have possibly let the goofiest political story in recent months slip by unremarked upon After popping in during the cold open claiming to be the first African American quarterback to dunk a football Yang returns during Weekend Update with another barrage of outlandish lies As we continue discovering new and even more ridiculous things he s lied about pretty much every day it s hard to heighten the inherent joke of this preposterous impostor However there s no need to reinvent the wheel to make fun of George Santos Not when you can have Yang s Santos claim his grandparents were the ones who told Anne Frank you should be writing this down anyway Turns out Aubrey Plaza was indeed voted the most famous person from Delaware back in 2018 Meet cutes seldom involve being on ketamine parole and fire so congratulations to the game night newbie couple played by Plaza and Mikey Day for breaking new ground The morning announcements sketch is a return to habit for Plaza who played a nun once before in 2017 s comedy oddity The Little Hours directed by her husband Jeff Baena Unholy makes its way to SNL in a Sam Smith and Kim Petras performance after being preceded in December by a sketch that used it as a recurring motif If James Cameron doesn t make at least one of his many impending Avatar sequels about the Maricopa County MILF Hunters and their perfect butch haircuts then I really have to ask whether the most bankable director in movie history knows what he s doing The real fun of the HIV commercial sketch isn t the central joke which is the Devon Walker character s chipper gay panic but the hurried director played by Plaza whose quirk is eating a hot salad so hot

    Aubrey Plaza is The Moment

    Things you buy through our links may earn New York a commission.

    Playing a breakout character on a hit sitcom can be both a gift and a curse. Everyone now knows who you are, but they also know who they want you to be.

    For many years, in viewers’ eyes, Aubrey Plaza was her Parks and Recreation character, April Ludgate. She was an irritable, over-it misanthrope, prone to withering sarcasm; essentially MTV’s Daria for a new generation. (It didn’t help matters that she once played Daria in a viral College Humor video, or voiced the titular character in 2014’s Grumpy Cat movie, a project I wouldn’t know how to explain to a young person without being even more embarrassed of my generation than usual.) In the years since, however, Plaza has been doing the difficult work of torching her former typecasting without the telegraphed intentionality of a Disney star now working blue. She slowly built up a stable of varied performances in dark, hip indies she produced herself, such as Ingrid Goes West and Black Bear, along with the occasional fratty comedy and the lesser of two recent Child’s Play reboots (the movie, not the show.) Plaza has worked so steadily and accrued so much goodwill that her hosting SNL for the first time in 2023 feels bizarrely belated.

    It also feels right on schedule.

    Between starring in timely critical darling Emily the Criminal — the inaugural release from her production company — and eating up a meaty role in The White Lotus, the closest thing to a monoculture hit we now have, 2022 was Aubrey Plaza’s year. Those two parts were so distinct and different from each other that one need not even bother pointing out that they both feel like entirely different species than April Ludgate. Plaza has so successfully shed the skin of her first defining character that it’s almost as jarring as it is nostalgic to see her revive Ludgate for a reunion with her Parks costar Amy Poehler in the middle of hosting SNL.

    While the episode gave Plaza the chance to let loose as a wide assortment of weirdos, it also played at times like a perfunctory checklist of all the pop culture and political detritus of the month-plus since the last episode aired.

    Here are the highlights.

    When he hosted the show last month, Austin Butler had an adorable and touching story about why getting to do so was a dream come true. Unfortunately for him, that story did not involve having once worked as a page at Saturday Night Live, so Aubrey Plaza wins. (She also once played an NBC page on an episode of 30 Rock.) She spends the bulk of her charming monologue giving viewers a tour of the studio, complete with the same kind of made-up factoids she has mentioned in interviews she used to lay on audiences when she was giving those tours for real.

    Nobody could accuse Miss France, Eva Colas, of holding anything back in her moment of truth. Nor would they accuse anyone involved in the SNL sketch based on that moment from last week’s Miss Universe pageant —”one of several shows still on the air where we rate women,” as Kenan Thompson’s host character puts it — of doing so either. Plaza brings something to Miss France’s disturbed screeching that makes a one-note joke funnier than it should be. Meanwhile, Tony Hawk, who is also there for some reason, gets in on the shouting game with gusto.

    At this point, Nelson Franklin, Harvey Guillén, and Jon Lovitz have all played George Santos, the Talented Mr. Ripley of congressmen, in various late-night television appearances. Now, Bowen Yang has joined their ranks since there was no way SNL could have possibly let the goofiest political story in recent months slip by unremarked upon. After popping in during the cold open, claiming to be “the first African-American quarterback to dunk a football,” Yang returns during Weekend Update with another barrage of outlandish lies. As we continue discovering new and even more ridiculous things he’s lied about pretty much every day, it’s hard to heighten the inherent joke of this preposterous impostor. However, there’s no need to reinvent the wheel to make fun of George Santos. Not when you can have Yang’s Santos claim his grandparents were the ones who told Anne Frank, “you should be writing this down,” anyway.

    • Turns out Aubrey Plaza was indeed voted the most famous person from Delaware back in 2018.

    • Meet-cutes seldom involve being on ketamine, parole and fire, so congratulations to the game night newbie couple played by Plaza and Mikey Day for breaking new ground.

    • The morning announcements sketch is a return to habit for Plaza, who played a nun once before in 2017’s comedy oddity The Little Hours, directed by her husband, Jeff Baena.

    • “Unholy” makes its way to SNL in a Sam Smith and Kim Petras performance after being preceded in December by a sketch that used it as a recurring motif.

    • If James Cameron doesn’t make at least one of his many impending Avatar sequels about the Maricopa County MILF Hunters and their perfect butch haircuts, then I really have to ask whether the most bankable director in movie history knows what he’s doing.

    • The real fun of the HIV commercial sketch isn’t the central joke, which is the Devon Walker character’s chipper gay panic, but the hurried director, played by Plaza, whose quirk is eating a hot salad so hot it burns the roof of her mouth.

    • It’s incredible how well Plaza fits in the role of film-noir femme fatale in the episode’s final sketch, but perhaps not as incredible as the fact that her character misses the way her deceased husband “really knew how to stink up a chair.” It’s also nice to see Plaza reunite with Sharon Stone over a decade after she and the original femme fatale star had a little moment together on the red carpet.

    Aubrey Plaza hosts standout cameo-packed episode

    Saturday Night Live returns from holiday hiatus with an NFL on Fox postgame roundtable discussion. Hosts Curt Menefee (Kenan Thompson), Howie Long (Mikey Day), Jimmy Johnson (James Austin Johnson), Michael Strahan (Devon Walker), Terry Bradshaw (Molly Kearney), and the newly sentient dancing robot mascot welcome their new star reporter, “Heisman trophy winner” George Santos (Bowen Yang).

    The huckster representative from New York attempts to take credit for the Philadelphia Eagle’s victory, running down his “36 completions … 12 touchdowns, 17 rebounds and 10 RBIs,” while also denying reports that he used to don drag when he lived in Florida. Once the hosts realize that every word coming out of his mouth is a lie, they cut away from him, but he quickly shows back up as his drag queen alter ego, Kitara Ravache.

    As a skewering of Santos – who, let’s face it, is beyond ridicule – it’s not particularly sharp, but by focusing on the congressman exclusively, it makes for a far stronger cold open than the standard news show template that tries to cram a week’s worth of headlines into a five-minute sketch.

    Aubrey Plaza hosts for the first time. Fresh off memorable turns in the new season of HBO’s The White Lotus and the acclaimed indie thriller Emily the Criminal, the actor celebrates having recently been voted the most famous person from her home state of Delaware. She even managed to beat out President Biden, who shows up – via prerecorded message – to congratulate her.

    She then reminisces about her time working as an NBC page, donning her old page jacket, and leading us on a backstage tour of Studio 8H, where she runs into former Parks and Recreation co-star Amy Poehler. A literal victory lap and a well deserved one at that, Plaza feels right at home both backstage and front of stage.

    At the Miss Universe pageant– “one of several shows still on the air where we rank women”– the seven finalists remind viewers what country they represent by screeching its name at the top of their lungs (Plaza plays the French contestant from the viral video the sketch is parodying). What threatens to be a dire one-joke affair is redeemed by Plaza’s weirdo energy, Kearney’s very funny non-sequitur about dying in a skydiving accident, and surprise cameos from both Property Brothers and a very excited Tony Hawk.

    SNL finally bucks the noticeable trend of refusing to parody the host’s latest projects with a commercial for HBO’s new series, Black Lotus (“All the decadence, all the intrigue, none of the foolishness”). The wealthy, spoiled tourists of White Lotus – including characters played by Jennifer Coolidge (Chloe Fineman) and Michael Imperioli (Johnson) – find themselves butting up against a no-nonsense, all Black (save Plaza’s fiery Latina) staff that refuses to indulge their nonsense.

    Next, at a cul-de-sac game night, a group of neighbors welcomes the new couple that’s moved next door. But a friendly game of Taboo reveals them to be violent psychopaths. There’s no real escalation and it all peters out in short order.

    At a Catholic high school, head nuns Sister Clarence and Sister Cecelia (Kearney and Plaza) welcome students back from the three-day MLK Day break. The usually wacky Cecelia is all frayed nerves, eventually revealing that over the weekend “A hairdryer accidently fell into the bathtub while I was in it. I died for two minutes and now I’m questioning everything”. She furiously renounces her faith and embraces sin, before Sister Clarence wins her back with a rendition of Lady Gaga’s Shallow (a call back to an earlier joke). The premise is solid enough, but the writers can’t figure out how to run with it, nor how to wrap it up.

    A trailer for M3gan 2.0 embraces the popular new horror villain’s status as a new queer icon by setting the sequel in a gay club. M3gan star Allison Williams shows up to put a stop to things, only to change course and embrace the fun after all the clubgoers fawn over her for having “her as ate” on Girls.

    George Santos pops up yet again, this time intruding upon Weekend Update pretending to be nuclear fusion expert. Colin Jost isn’t buying it, and grills Santos over his lies about working at Goldman Sacks (“I filled the gold man-sacks”), his mom dying in 9/11 (“I think I said 7-11”), and being Jewish (“I said Jew-ish, which is honestly, icon-ic”). Santos never cops to the truth, and ends up adding to his list of fabrications. Probably Yang’s best turn on the show yet, it’s also a welcome case of SNL letting a bit play out over the course of half an episode.

    Later, Plaza joins the desk as her moody, smart-ass Parks and Recreation character April Ludgate. There to talk about the job market, she can’t be bothered by Jost’s questions, so she turns things over to her boss, Leslie Knope. But the sunny Knope would rather pick Jost’s brain about his job (Poehler gets a big laugh when she talks about watching Update “when Seth Meyers did it by himself with no one else”). She briefly takes the reins herself, delivering a groaner about a dog bus service. A fun return for the characters, as well as Poehler to Update.

    We then find ourselves in the world of Pandora, as a group of Navi commiserate over rumors of humans living among their tribe disguised as Avatars. It’s very obvious to everyone except leader Jake Sully (Day) that the spies are two members who are clearly “butch ladies from Arizona” (Heidi Gardner and Plaza).

    This is followed by Sam Smith’s performance of a Gregorian chant number, which they perform with the help a full robed chorus and a dramatically recumbent (and silent) Sharon Stone of all people. It’s about as close to a piece of performance art as any SNL musical number has been in recent memory (if not ever). Wild stuff.

    Then, Plaza plays a TV director shooting a commercial for the HIV treatment Lovato. Things get off track when one of the actors keeps ad-libbing his lines to make it clear that he’s not gay (“Fact: you can get HIV from a girl – that’s how I did it”). It’s another case where a good, edgy setup is hampered by a lack of narrative focus, with this one noticeably sputtering out during its conclusion.

    Luckily, the show goes out on a much stronger note with a scene from an old black-and-white mystery movie that sees Johnson’s hardboiled PI accuse Plaza’s sultry widow of murdering several aged husbands. As it turns out, they all died of natural causes, and she just has a thing for the type old man who “never uses his turn signal and screams at racoons in his yards.” Johnson and Plaza are both highly adept at delivering the rapid-fire noir dialog, with a cameoing Stone adding to the meta-fun of it all.

    Between the sheer star wattage on display in this episode, Smith’s go-for-broke performance, and Plaza’s ace hosting – she wasn’t just a natural, she made it seem like she’d done this a dozen times before – this turned out to be a surprisingly excellent return, the best episode of the season so far by a wide margin. But more than that, it was also the most rounded SNL has felt in years, thanks to the use of George Santos as through line, as well as an overriding focus on queer humor. Hopefully, this speaks to a new sense of focus for the show.

    What is bacterial meningitis, the illness that killed Jeff Beck?

    What is bacterial meningitis, the illness that killed Jeff Beck?

    After contracting bacterial meningitis, legendary rock guitarist Jeff Beck died Wednesday at the age of 78, according to a statement posted to his official social media accounts and confirmed to CNN by his agent.

    “On behalf of his family, it is with deep and profound sadness that we share the news of Jeff Beck’s passing,” the statement read. “After suddenly contracting bacterial meningitis, he peacefully passed away yesterday. His family ask for privacy while they process this tremendous loss.”

    Unbelievable as it may be, death can occur within hours of contracting bacterial meningitis, an inflammation of the membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord. The swelling is typically caused when an infection attacks the fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. However, most people recover from the illness, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    “Those who do recover can have permanent disabilities, such as brain damage, hearing loss, and learning disabilities,” the CDC noted on its website.

    Symptoms of the illness can mimic the flu or Covid-19 and include a headache, fever, nausea or vomiting, brain fog, sensitivity to light, sleepiness or trouble waking, and a stiff neck.

    “Meningitis can be acute, with a quick onset of symptoms, it can be chronic, lasting a month or more, or it can be mild or aseptic,” according to the Cleveland Clinic.

    See a doctor immediately if you or a loved one have a sudden high fever, a severe headache that doesn’t ease, confusion, vomiting, or a painful, stiff neck with limited range of motion.

    Babies are more susceptible than other age groups, according to the CDC. Signs to look for include irritability, vomiting, inactivity, feeding poorly, abnormal reflexes and a bulging “soft spot,” or fontanel, on the head. Call the doctor immediately with any concerns.

    A number of bacteria can cause meningitis, as can viruses, parasites, fungi, amoeba, and some injuries, drugs, and conditions like lupus or cancer. Treatment differs based on the cause of meningitis, so it’s important to know the source. To find out, doctors will collect samples of blood or do a spinal tap, which they send to a laboratory for analysis.

    Foodborne illnesses continue to rise as efforts to prevent them fail

    “Doctors treat bacterial meningitis with a number of antibiotics. It is important to start treatment as soon as possible,” the CDC said.

    Viral meningitis, while serious, is much less deadly than the bacterial version, and people with a normal immune system typically get better on their own, the CDC said.

    A viral case of meningitis is “not generally considered to be contagious,” according to Meningitis Now, an information and support charity based in the United Kingdom.

    “Viral meningitis is not passed on to others by being in close contact — unlike the meningococcal form of bacterial meningitis — so no preventive treatment is needed for relatives,” the group stated.

    The types of bacteria that cause meningitis can be spread in a number of ways. Group B Streptococcus and E. coli bacteria can be passed from mother to child during birth.

    Pregnant women are also susceptible to Listeria monocytogenes infections, which can lead to “miscarriage, stillbirth, premature delivery, or life-threatening infection of the newborn, including meningitis,” the CDC said.

    Several other bacteria that cause meningitis — Haemophilus influenzae, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and Streptococcus pneumoniae — are passed to others by coughing or sneezing. Bacteria called Neisseria meningitidis spread by sharing saliva or spit, which typically occurs when people are kissing, coughing or living in close contact.

    Not everyone who spreads the bacteria that causes meningitis gets sick. Some people carry these germs in their noses or on their bodies without knowing it.

    “These people are ‘carriers.’ Most carriers never become sick, but can still spread the bacteria to others,” the CDC noted.

    People with certain medical conditions, such as HIV infection or serious immune deficiency, those who don’t have spleens and patients on chemotherapy, are more likely to contract the disease, the CDC said. Travelers to sub-Saharan Africa, which has a “Meningitis belt” that extends from Senegal to Ethiopia, are also at increased risk.

    Meningococcal disease refers to any sickness caused by Neisseria meningitidis. The infection can lead to both meningitis and a serious infection of the bloodstream called sepsis, or blood poisoning. Sepsis can travel within hours throughout the body, causing extremities to quickly gangrene and organs to fail.

    Heartbroken parents: Please add new vaccine to stave off meningitis strain

    A skin rash can be a sign of meningococcal meningitis, along with the typical symptoms of high fever, severe headache, stiff neck, nausea and vomiting, confusion, and sensitivity to light.

    “Meningococcal disease is rare and has declined in the United States since the 1990s. However, it is a severe disease with a significant risk of death or lasting disabilities in people who get it,” according to the CDC.

    “Even when it is treated, meningococcal disease kills 10 to 15 infected people out of 100. And of those who survive, about 10 to 20 out of every 100 will suffer disabilities such as hearing loss, brain damage, kidney damage, loss of limbs, nervous system problems, or severe scars from skin grafts,” the agency added.

    Cases occur during summer camps or in college dorm settings due to the close quarters, claiming the lives of students such as San Diego State University freshman Sara Stelzer. She died in 2014 three days after contracting a strain of meningococcal meningitis that wasn’t included in the recommended vaccine at the time.

    Keeping you and your family up to date on vaccines is a key way to prevent bacterial and viral meningitis, the CDC advised.

    There are four basic types of vaccines: pneumococcal vaccines, Hib vaccines, two meningococcal vaccines and the Bacille Calmette-Guérin vaccine that protects against tuberculosis.

    One meningococcal vaccine protects against serogroups A, C, W and Y. To be protected against serogroup B, the disease that has taken the lives of a number of college students, a different vaccine called MenB is used.

    Vaccine efficacy can wane over time, so it’s wise to check with your health care provider to see whether you might need a booster.

    Saving women’s lives: the time is now to defeat Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and cervical cancer together (By Sergio Carmona & Princess Nono Simelela)

    By Dr Sergio Carmona, Chief Medical Officer of FIND (https://www.FINDdx.org), the global alliance for diagnostics and Dr Princess Nono Simelela, Special Advisor to the World Health Organization's DG on Strategic Priorities, including Cervical Cancer Elimination.

    Women and girls in sub-Saharan Africa accounted for two out of every three (https://bit.ly/2xN4hOv) new HIV infections in 2021.

    Women living with HIV are six times more likely (https://bit.ly/3Fjcbms) to develop cervical cancer than those living without.

    These are powerful, distressing statistics, showing very clearly that to meet the 2030 targets of ending the AIDS epidemic as well as the World Health Organization (WHO) ambition to eliminate cervical cancer as a public health problem, we must urgently prioritize women’s health across our continent.

    Why are these two diseases so closely linked?

    Weakened immune systems mean women with HIV are less likely to be able to clear infections of HPV, which is the virus that causes cervical cancer.

    Indeed, HIV infection halves the time (https://bit.ly/3isvyjY) it takes for pre-cancerous cells to develop into cervical cancer.

    Cervical cancer is both preventable and curable (https://bit.ly/3it5RQq) if detected early, through highly effective HPV vaccines and high-performing tests or screening tools, leading WHO to suggest that it could be the first cancer ever in the world to be eliminated.

    But while awareness of the impact of vaccination and value of screening has improved, disruption to health services due to the COVID-19 pandemic pushed aside many women’s health programmes, including HPV vaccination campaigns and screening initiatives.

    Today, cervical cancer remains the deadliest cancer (https://bit.ly/3XLsgsh) among women in low-income countries – because women in these countries simply do not have access to these life-saving measures.

    Increasingly, communities and organizations are identifying opportunities to address both cervical cancer and HIV/AIDS together.

    Last year WHO updated their guidelines (https://bit.ly/3VtiuJN) on cervical cancer screening and treatment to include recommendations that are specific for women living with HIV.

    As Winnie Byanyima, Executive Director of UNAIDS, recently acknowledged (https://bit.ly/3isCCNJ), “It is unacceptable to claim that we have saved a woman’s life by enabling access to antiretroviral therapy for HIV alone, if we then leave her to die from cervical cancer...

    [we are] building bridges between HIV and cervical cancer programmes, and bringing the two communities together because we know that linkages save lives.” Such linkages include integrated control strategies, research and access programmes, joint case management and awareness raising, and cooperation between the two disease communities to make the most of the resources we have available.

    In HIV, the introduction of self-testing has been a major step in the fight against the disease.

    Lessons from that experience, coupled with an explosion in diagnostic technology prompted by the COVID-19 pandemic, mean that for cervical cancer we are now much closer to new approaches for early detection and cervical screening services, including self-sampling (https://bit.ly/3FdTVtF) that can be conducted more privately and conveniently (at home, for example).

    Through monitoring the testing landscape for COVID-19, FIND has identified at least 27 molecular point-of-care tests with potential for HPV testing – many of which are already in use for HIV diagnosis.

    Indeed, to meet the WHO goal of screening over 70% of all eligible women for cervical cancer in LMICs at least twice in their lifetime, there are significant opportunities for collaborations with HIV programmes.

    Scaling up this “twice-lifetime” screening alongside HPV vaccination could enable 100% of countries to reach elimination (https://bit.ly/3uhhgpe) – reducing cervical cancer cases by 97%, saving countless lives as well as health system costs.

    First, we need to integrate cervical cancer into community-led approaches to advocacy, and education, to break down barriers around stigma for both diseases and increase demand for screening and testing.

    Second, we need to prioritize and accelerate the adoption of new, women-centric technologies that are coming through the pipeline, especially those that can enable self-sampling.

    And third, we need to increase access to affordable diagnostics so that everyone who needs a test can get one – for both HIV and cervical cancer.

    To be successful, these measures require committed leadership from heads of Governments, who must prioritize the control and elimination of cervical cancer alongside HIV, seeing this not as a cost but an investment in the future of their nations.

    In addition, community leaders, policy makers, donors, civil society and the private sector must provide solid support to scale up cervical cancer programmes and integrate them into health systems alongside HIV services.

    On World AIDS Day this year we were called on to ‘equalize’ (https://bit.ly/3B0eKYe) to address the inequalities that are holding back progress in ending AIDS.

    We must heed that call and come together with urgency to free women from the burden of both diseases.

    Africa’s Advances in Maternal, Infant Mortality Face Setbacks: World Health Organisation (WHO) Report

    A slowdown in the progress made during the past decade against maternal and infant mortality is projected in the African region, a new World Health Organization (WHO) report released today finds.

    The Atlas of African Health Statistics 2022 assessed the nine targets related to the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) on health and found that at the current pace, increased investment is needed to accelerate progress towards the targets.

    Among the most difficult to achieve will be reducing maternal mortality.

    In sub-Saharan Africa, it is estimated that 390 women will die in childbirth for every 100 000 live births by 2030, the Atlas 2022 reports.

    This is more than five times above the 2030 SDG target of fewer than 70 maternal deaths per 100 000 live births, and much higher than the average of 13 deaths per 100 000 live births witnessed in Europe in 2017.

    It is more than the global average of 211.

    To reach the SDG target, Africa will need an 86% reduction from 2017 rates, the last time data was reported, an unrealistic feat at the current rate of decline.

    The region’s infant mortality rate stands at 72 per 1000 live births.

    At the current 3.1% annual rate of decline, there will be an expected 54 deaths per 1000 live births by 2030, far above the reduction target of fewer than 25 per 1000.

    “Africa has scored some of the fastest reduction rates globally in key health objectives, but the momentum is waning.

    This means that for many African women, childbirth remains a persistent risk and millions of children do not live long enough to celebrate their fifth birthday,” said Dr Matshidiso Moeti, WHO Regional Director for Africa.

    “It is crucial that governments make a radical course-correction, surmount the challenges and speed up the pace towards the health goals.

    These goals aren’t mere milestones, but the very foundations of healthier life and well-being for millions of people.” Although the region is witnessing a decelerating momentum towards key health objectives such as vaccine coverage, it has made remarkable progress in some areas during the first decade of the 21st century.

    Under-5 mortality fell by 35%; neonatal death rates dropped by 21%; and maternal mortality declined by 28%.

    In the last decade, advances in all three targets have flatlined, particularly for maternal mortality.

    While Africa has advanced on family planning, with 56.3% of women of reproductive age (15-49) having their family planning needs satisfied with modern contraceptive methods in 2020, the region is still far below the global average of 77% and the worst performing.

    The slowdown has been exacerbated by the disruptive effect of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Crucial health services such as postnatal care for women and newborns, neonatal intensive care units, and antenatal care services, immunization services were disrupted during the pandemic.

    Since 2021, Africa has also faced a resurgence in vaccine-preventable disease outbreaks.

    Measles cases rose by 400% between January and March 2022 compared with the same period the year before.

    Inadequate investment in health and funding for health programmes are some of the major drawbacks to meeting the SDG on health.

    For example, a 2022 WHO survey of 47 African countries found that the region has a ratio of 1.55 health workers (physicians, nurses and midwives) per 1000 people, below the WHO threshold density of 4.45 health workers per 1000 people needed to deliver essential health services and achieve universal health coverage.

    In the African region, 65% of births are attended by skilled health personnel – the lowest globally and far off the 2030 target of 90%, according to the Atlas 2022.

    Skilled birth attendants are crucial for the well-being of women and newborns.

    Neonatal deaths account for nearly half of all under-5 mortality.

    Accelerating the agenda to meet its reduction goal will be a major step toward reducing the under-5 mortality rate to fewer than 25 deaths per 1000 live births.

    The Atlas 2022 also presents the latest data for more than 50 health-related indicators of the SDGs and provides comprehensive country-level statistics for the region.

    WHO held a press conference today led by Dr Humphrey Karamagi, Senior Technical Officer, Health Systems Development, WHO Regional Office for Africa.

    He was joined by Dr Benjamin Tsofa, Principal Research Officer, Kenya Medical Research Institute.

    Also on hand from WHO Regional Office for Africa to answer questions were Dr Fiona Braka, Team Lead, Emergency Operations; Dr Fank Lule, Medical Officer, HIV/AIDS Treatment and Care; and Dr Serge Bataliack, Strategic Health Information Officer.

    More people living with undiagnosed HIV in the European region: report-

    - More people became infected with HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) but went undiagnosed in the European region, a new health report revealed on Wednesday.

    The report, published jointly by the World Health Organization (WHO) Regional Office for Europe and the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), cites figures between 2018 and 2021.

    He said that about one in eight people living with HIV in the European Union and the European Economic Area (EU/EEA) remained undiagnosed.

    "Continued and widespread stigma around HIV is deterring people from getting tested and is taking us dangerously off track to reach our 2030 goal of ending AIDS," said WHO Regional Director for Europe, Dr. Dr. Hans Henri P. Kluge, in a press release.

    According to the report, late diagnosis of HIV remains a major challenge in the Region due to underdiagnosis and underreporting.

    The WHO blamed the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on testing services in the Region, "which overwhelmed public health and clinical surveillance resources, causing many countries to struggle to test and report new infections." for HIV."

    "In the absence of regular HIV testing for people most at risk, there can be a long period of time between HIV infection and diagnosis," Dr. Andrea Ammon, Director of ECDC, said in the news release.

    "This is not good for people, as they are more likely to become seriously ill and even die if diagnosed late. It is also not good for public health, as HIV-positive people who do not receive treatment can transmit HIV to their unknowing sexual partners," Ammon added.

    In 2021, almost 300 new HIV diagnoses were made every day in 46 of the 53 countries in the WHO European Region, amounting to 106,508 new diagnosed HIV infections in the Region, according to WHO data. published before World AIDS Day on December 1. 1.

    However, last year's new HIV diagnoses in the Region remained nearly 25 percent below pre-pandemic levels, according to the report. ■
