How to stop your kids from getting cancer: What you need to know
The National Institutes of Health has announced it has begun testing children as young as two years old for cancer and the virus, in what it says will be the largest-ever immunization campaign against the virus.
The new test is part of a nationwide effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus, which has killed more than 14,000 people in the United States and Europe and infected more than 2.7 million others worldwide.
The tests, which will be conducted by the University of Utah and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, will be offered by the NIH and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and will begin in late March.
The program is part the government’s effort to prevent the spread and spread of another type of the virus that is also believed to be transmitted through vaccines.
The two new tests are part of an effort to combat another new coronaviruses, called coronaviral meningitis, which is also a major threat to the health of Americans.
Both coronavire and meningococcal meningovirus are highly infectious, causing the flu-like illness that can cause fever, headache, nausea and diarrhea.
CDC Director Tom Frieden said it’s critical that we learn about these new coronoviruses before they infect us.
The pandemic started in the U.S. with coronaviroids in 2014 and has spread to a large swath of the world.
The U.N. has declared that at least 10 countries in Africa and Latin America have been infected with the virus and are at risk of contracting it.
That includes Brazil, South Africa, Nigeria, Liberia, Guinea and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
The virus also is circulating in parts of the Middle East, Southeast Asia and parts of Asia.
The World Health Organization says more than half the people infected in the Middle Eastern countries are children under the age of five.
A similar number of people infected have died in the Western Hemisphere, according to WHO figures.
