A woodcarver who has been donating his skills and time to show his appreciation for the work of health care staff during the coronavirus pandemic said he is “thrilled” with the response his project has received.

Johnathon Whittaker, who is a full-time self-employed wood carver and sculptor, has been making hand-carved plaques to thank health care workers.

Since starting the idea in April, Mr Whittaker and his wife Christie, who helps with administration, have been inundated with requests.

The couple from Plymstock in Devon have been making plaques for care homes and the South Western Ambulance Service, as well as their original idea for NHS workers.

“I am feeling a mixture of emotions, excitement, happiness, anxiety, nervousness…there is a lot going on inside my head right now,” said Mr Whittaker.

“I never expected it to boom like it has, but I am loving every minute of it.”

When will the COVID-19 pandemic end? And how?According to historians, pandemics typically have two types of endings: the medical, which occurs when the incidence and death rates plummet, and the social, when the epidemic of fear about the disease wanes.”When people ask, ‘When will this end?,’ they are asking about the social ending,” said Dr. Jeremy Greene, a historian of medicine at Johns Hopkins.In other words, an end can occur not because a disease has been vanquished but because people grow tired of panic mode and learn to live with a disease. Allan Brandt, a Harvard historian, said something similar was happening with COVID-19: “As we have seen in the debate about opening the economy, many questions about the so-called end are determined not by medical and public health data but by sociopolitical processes.”Endings “are very, very messy,” said Dora Vargha, a historian at the University

Hazzouri


Scranton dentist Dr. Albert Hazzouri loves dropping the name of his friend, President Donald Trump, in the course of doing business.


The New York Times reported Wednesday that Hazzouri tried to get the federal government to buy coronavirus test kits from his associates. Hazzouri mentioned his Trump connection when he encountered resistance, the newspaper reported.


Two years ago, Hazzouri alluded to his Trump friendship as he sought a Florida dental license before state regulators.


Repeated efforts to reach Hazzouri on Wednesday were unsuccessful.


Citing unnamed sources involved with the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s operations, The New York Times reported Hazzouri repeatedly called FEMA officials and a separate team of Trump administration volunteers working on procurement. He wanted to help facilitate the purchase of about 100,000 kits from Mexico.


Hazzouri, 64, also mentioned his friendship with Trump while trying to obtain a
