‘Indescribable’: 14-month-old twins born conjoined finally home after separation surgery
PHILADELPHIA (WJW) — Twin girls who were born conjoined are finally home after nearly one year in intensive care and a 10-hour separation surgery. According to a press release from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), Addison and Lilianna Altobelli, now 14 months old, were born connected at the abdomen and chest and shared a liver, diaphragm, chest and abdominal wall. When their parents, Maggie and Dom, of Chicago, found out they were pregnant, they assumed they were having one baby. Ultrasound images revealed Maggie was carrying two babies and that they were attached at the abdomen. According to CHOP, conjoined twins occur in only about one in 50,000 births. CHOP is one of only a few hospitals in the country experienced with separating conjoined twins. More than 28 pairs of conjoined twins have been separated there since 1957.

Senate Dems determined to save Build Back Better package
WASHINGTON (Nexstar) — President Biden kicked off his second year in office and Democrats are trying to press reset in order to move the president’s agenda forward. That includes trying to pass the Build Back Better package which failed to pass last year. Democratic leaders believe a version of Build Back Better can still become law, “building around a handful of issues,” Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) said.Senator Wyden says the legislative package should include provisions to fight climate change.“Any energy source that can reduce carbon emissions is in a position to get the tax savings,” Senator Wyden said.Wyden also wants the bill to ensure the government can negotiate prescription drug prices and should include the expanded child tax credit.“Because of omicron, families are faced with extra expenses, the child tax credit is tangible benefit,” Wyden said.

CDC: Boosters 90 percent effective against omicron hospitalizations
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – Three large studies by the CDC show just how vital booster shots are when it comes to preventing hospitalization and death, especially among one age group.The first study, released Friday, looked at almost 88,000 hospitalizations in 10 states found that booster shots were 90% effective at keeping people with the omicron variant of COVID-19 out of the hospital. The data was collected during December and January when the omicron was dominant.In the second study, published in the CDC’s most recent Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR), individuals ages 65 and older who had been fully vaccinated and received a booster saw the largest gains in protection against the virus, with the 50-64 age set behind them.Data from the report also shows that unvaccinated people over 65 are 49 times more likely to be hospitalized for COVID-19 than seniors who have received a booster shot in addition to their full vaccination series, and 50-64 year-olds who remain unvaccinated are 44 times more likely to be hospitalized compared to vaccinated and boosted individuals in their age group.

Covid-19 hospitalizations are dropping in the Northeast. In other parts of the country, they're rising
(CNN)During what has been another devastating surge of Covid-19 across the country, there is good news: Some states are starting to see infection numbers and hospitalizations drop. But that's not the case everywhere. As cases seem to begin plateauing, Covid-19 hospitalizations in the Northeast are down by about 11% after reaching a peak about a week ago and have also dropped slightly -- about 6% -- in the Midwest region, according to data from the Department of Health and Human Services. And new Covid-19 hospital admissions are beginning to decline nationwide, a sign that total hospitalizations may soon begin going down too in every part of the country. The agency's data includes both patients who are hospitalized because of Covid-19 complications and patients who may have been admitted for something else but tested positive for Covid-19. That has been true throughout the pandemic, but the share of patients who fall into each category may have changed over time.

A 22-year-old NYPD officer was shot and killed Friday night while responding to a call for service in Harlem, city officials said. Another officer was wounded and is "fighting for his life to survive." The incident occurred after a mother called to say she was in a dispute with her son, NYPD Chief of Detectives James Essig said at a press conference Friday night. When officers arrived and met with the woman at approximately 6:15 p.m., she said her son was in the back bedroom at the end of a long and narrow hallway. As two officers walked down the hall, the door swung upon and "numerous shots were fired," Essig said. A third officer, who had stayed with the woman, then confronted the suspect and shot him in the arm and the head. It's not yet clear if the suspect survived. He was identified by Essig as 47-year-old Lashawn McNeil.
