  • Pandemic Chronicles: a vaccine primer
    With the arrival of the COVID-19 vaccine in Washoe County, the end of the pandemic is in sight, but the road to that finish line is paved with long waits and continued precautions against virus transmission, according to the director of the Nevada State Health Laboratory. Dr. Mark Pandori, lab director and an associate professor in the University of Nevada, Reno Medical School Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, said drugs that will effectively treat COVID-19 infections are probably a long way off. – Reno News & Review
  • Health experts say new strain of COVID-19 likely spreads faster, but no need to panic right now
    The good news is that the CDC says there is no evidence right now that the new strain causes more severe illness. State medical leaders remain confident in the current vaccine. “The vaccine probably will work very well still, even in light of this new circulating strain,” said Dr. Mark Pandori, director of the Nevada State Public Health Laboratory. “A vaccine-mediated immunity should still recognize it very well.” – 8 News Now Las Vegas
  • Nevada's Vast Stores Of Lithium Could Fuel The Energy Transition. But At What Cost?
    A large part of the population and importantly the habitat that the population grows in, we are not touching,” says Bernard Rowe, Ioneer's managing director. “Not only are we not touching it with the proposed mining activities, but we'll also be protecting those areas.” Rowe says the company plans to fence off habitat and is partnering with the University of Nevada, Reno to study whether the plant can grow in hot houses or be transplanted somewhere else. Rowe says Ioneer is not trying to destroy any biodiversity. – KUNR
