    The News Roundup for July 30, 2021

    As the Delta variant continues its rapid spread in the U.S., the CDC released updated guidelines recommending that vaccinated citizens wear masks indoors in areas where Covid-19 transmission is high. Currently, about two-thirds of all U.S. counties qualify.

    The House committee on the Jan. 6 insurrection met for the first time this week. It heard testimony from four Capitol police officers present the day of the attack. Committee members have signaled they are ready to begin issuing subpoenas for further witnesses and may meet again in August.

    Meanwhile, the U.S. has pledged to remove its forces from Iraq by the end of the year — a goal that presents some huge challenges, logistical and otherwise.

    The U.S. is also facilitating the return of some 17,000 Iraqi archaeological treasures, the oldest of which dates back 4,000 years.

    The first person to be tried under Hong Kong's new, restrictive security law has been found guilty of secessionism and terrorism. Tong Ying-kit's conviction is being condemned by human rights groups.

    We cover all this and more during the News Roundup.

    The Epidemic Inside The Pandemic

    The Epidemic Inside The Pandemic

    As the pandemic rages worldwide, opioid overdose deaths in the US rose, with deaths up 29 percent in 2020 compared to 2019. The 93,000 deaths are attributed to isolation, disruption of addiction services, and other consequences of the pandemic.

    At the same time, a $26 billion settlement between states and some of the biggest manufacturers in the opioid industry is being finalized, but not everyone is on board.

    We talk about how we got to where we are and the details of the biggest settlement since the tobacco agreement in 1998.

    Researchers are still trying to figure out exactly why people want fewer children. Others are finding that even if they wanted more children, a rise in infertility that a lot harder.

    Why is the birth rate in the U.S. right now so low? And if we can find ways to encourage people to have more children, should we?
