Behjath Hussain, a dentist, who had been kidnapped for ransom by his relatives and rescued by Cyberabad police two weeks ago, died of massive heart stroke on Wednesday.
Rajendra Nagar Assistant Commissioner of Police K Ashok Chakravarthy said that for the past one week the dentist had not been keeping well and two days ago he was admitted in a private hospital.
“On Wednesday morning, he suffered massive heart and died while he was being taken to a hospital,” he said.
His funeral was performed by the family members at a graveyard in Hussaini Alam area in the old city. On October 27, the dentist, who was also a realtor, was kidnapped for a ransom of ₹10 crore in bitcoins. When rescued, Hussain’s nails were cut and injuries were found on his face and head.
CereHealth’s Novel SPECT-Analysis Approach to Reveal Brain Abnormalities Validated in Exploration of Medicine Special Issue
DENVER, Nov. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — CereHealth Corporation’s unique approach to analyzing single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) imaging to reveal brain perfusion abnormalities in neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s was validated in a manuscript “Going Against the Norm: Validation of a Novel Alternative to Brain SPECT Normative Datasets“ that was recently published in Exploration of Medicine. Historically, quantification has been dependent on comparisons to groups of healthy individuals, but the manuscript instead explored comparisons to a population template, derived from more than 2,000 clinical patient scans in CereHealth’s database. Validation by three testing methods demonstrated that the population template was noninferior to a group of 90 controls despite inclusion of abnormal scans.
CereHealth’s Senior Medical Imaging Engineer Lindsay Quandt, MS, MBA was the lead author of the published manuscript, which was co-authored by Cyrus Raji, MD, PhD of the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology at Washington University in St. Louis.
The SPECT approach was first developed for CereHealth’s FDA-cleared CereMetrix® software that uses the population template to measure perfusion levels in SPECT scans. This method is unique to CereHealth’s software application and relies on the company’s proprietary, dynamic database. Defense of their methodology was an integral component of their FDA 510(k) filing and subsequent clearance of the software under the agency’s medical device guidelines in 2018.
“Encouraged by our successful discussions with the FDA, our objective in the manuscript was to share CereHealth’s novel methods with the broader scientific and medical communities to demonstrate the capabilities and performance of our CereMetrix® platform,” said John Kelley, CEO of CereHealth Corporation.
The article is available through Exploration of Medicine, a peer-reviewed, open access online journal promoting articles that provide substantial and novel insights into medicine. Its special issue, guest edited by Dr. Rhoda Au of Boston University, sought papers that featured technological advances that help fill the gaps in fully characterizing Alzheimer’s Disease across the entire life course path. The journal encourages originality, well-designed experiments, and rigorous data in its content and performed an in-depth review during its selection of the paper.

Police bust New York City party on Halloween; England to enter 4-week lockdown; virus top campaign issue
Multiple countries in Europe are again entering lockdowns as cases surge in the United States, propelling COVID-19 as a central campaign issue yet again in the presidential race.
Former Vice President Joe Biden says President Donald Trump has been unable to control the pandemic: “We’re gonna beat this virus and get it under control and the first step to doing that is beating Donald Trump,” Biden said.
Meanwhile, Trump continues to minimize the virus’ impact. Trump told Pennsylvania voters that his administration has done “an incredible job” dealing with the pandemic. He repeated a months-old promise that the mass distribution of a vaccine was “just weeks away.”
Daily infections are at an all-time high in the U.S. heading into Tuesday’s election, according to Johns Hopkins University.
📈 Today’s numbers: The U.S. has reported more than 9 million cases and more than 230,000 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University data. The global totals: 45 million cases and 1.19 million deaths.

Police bust New York City party with nearly 400 people on Halloween
Police charged nine organizers in a bust of an “illegal bar/party” that had nearly 400 people in attendance in New York City, the NYC sheriff announced Saturday.
Police shut down the gathering held inside a Brooklyn warehouse early in the morning on Halloween.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Saturday warned against Halloween gatherings that increase the risk of transmitting COVID-19, tweeting “Halloween should be spooky, not scary.”
The guidelines tweeted by Cuomo say parties are particularly risky because they can bring together people from different areas for a long period of time.

British PM announces new, four-week lockdown in England
British prime minister Boris Johnson announced plans Saturday for a four-week national lockdown in England starting this week that will shut pubs, restaurants, entertainment facilities and nonessential businesses.
Schools, universities and manufacturing facilities will remain open during the period from Thursday until Dec. 2.
“Unless we act, we could see deaths in this country running at several thousand a day,” Johnson said.
Johnson said that individuals will only be allowed to leave their homes for specific reasons like medical appointments, shopping for essentials, education and work that cannot be done from their residence.
“No one wants to be imposing these kinds of measures anywhere,” the prime minister said, but added that “no responsible prime minister can ignore” the rising number of COVID-19 cases.
Professor Chris Whitty, chief medical officer for England, told reporters at a news conference that England is experiencing 50,000 new cases daily and that the figure is rising.
Doctors groups rip Trump for touting baseless conspiracy over virus death count
Medical groups are slamming President Donald Trump for resurfacing a baseless conspiracy on campaign stops that doctors are inflating the number of COVID-19 deaths in the USA in order to drive
ATLANTA, GA — Health experts in Georgia say they’re concerned that COVID-19 hospitalizations may be increasing. There was no way of knowing whether that was true Wednesday, though, because the state’s online dashboard was stuck most of the afternoon.
As of 6:45 p.m., Wednesday’s coronavirus statistics from the Georgia Department of Public Health had yet to be posted because of a “technical issue,” according to the department’s website. Normally, statistics are posted daily at about 3 p.m.
Meanwhile, the chief medical officer of one of Atlanta’s biggest hospitals said he’s starting to see a slight increase in coronavirus cases arriving in intensive care.
“We’ve gone back up a little bit over the last several days,” Dr. Robert Jansen of Grady Memorial Hospital said Wednesday to Atlanta news station WSB-TV.
Jansen told WSB-TV’s Carol Sbarge that he’d heard the same thing from other metro Atlanta hospitals. He urged everyone to continue following COVID-19 safety measures.
Jansen’s observation squares with comments Sunday by an immunology expert and veteran of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention who now blogs on the coronavirus pandemic.
“I think we have bottomed out on the descent from the summer surge,” Amber Schmidtke wrote in an Oct. 18 post. “We are seeing increases once again in cases and hospital admissions.”
The worst part, Schmidtke continued, is that it’s “likely our next peak will be even bigger than the summer surge.” But that’s “not a foregone conclusion,” she added.
“We have the power to stop that, but we need to do so now with our actions,” Schmidtke wrote.
Globally, more than 41 million people have tested positive for COVID-19, and more than 1.1 million people have died from it, Johns Hopkins University reported Wednesday.
In the United States, more than 8.3 million people have been infected and nearly 222,000 people have died from COVID-19 as of Wednesday. The U.S. has only about 4 percent of the world’s population but more confirmed cases and deaths than any other country.

SAN ANTONIO — Larisa Alvarado, 36, feared she had the coronavirus when she woke up last week feeling an itch and pain in her leg that later advanced to swelling. She began running a fever and became nauseous.
A friend and poison control expert suggested her symptoms could be from a spider bite, and advised her to see a doctor. But before she went to an urgent care clinic, Alvarado first had to research the cost of a visit and of the medicine a doctor was likely to prescribe—to see if she could afford them.
That’s because she doesn’t have health insurance. Alvarado lost her job as a patient resource specialist with the American Cancer Society after the organization’s fundraising was hit due to the pandemic.
Alvarado is just one of more than 11.2 million Latinos in the United States who don’t have health insurance—in 2019, almost 17 percent of Hispanics didn’t have health coverage, the highest of any group. That was the figure from before the pandemic, which was already up from 10.22 million in 2016.
Now experts say that number is likely even higher given the pandemic’s disproportionate toll on the community.
As people lose work and health care benefits, it’s become an even tougher task to ensure residents get health coverage access, said Joe Ibarra, co-chair of EnrollSA, a coalition of organizations trying to boost insurance enrollment in the San Antonio area.
“In Texas, there is no expanded Medicaid. The rules are really harsh. Folks are losing coverage as a result of losing their jobs and they are left without good options,” Ibarra told NBC News.
Latinos gained the most under the Affordable Care Act after it was enacted in 2010, with about 4 million adults and 600,000 children obtaining health care coverage by 2016.
As more people lose health insurance, the cost and the availability of coverage are top-tier issues for Hispanics this election cycle. Latinos rank it even ahead of jobs and the economy and place more importance on it than they did about this time in 2016.

“Latinos are going to the polls keeping health care in mind and their experience with Covid in mind and voting for change for their health and well-being,” Alberto Gonzalez, senior policy strategist at UnidosUS, a Latino civil rights organization, said.
Early in the election cycle, the GOP was pointing to record low unemployment rates Latinos were experiencing as reason to re-elect Trump, while Democrats countered that Hispanics were not economically stable if many had to work more than one job to make ends meet.
But the pandemic’s disproportionate effect on Latinos has forced a reckoning of the gaps in health care coverage, especially in states like Texas with a huge Hispanic population.
Fears of Covid-19 — without health insurance
Before Alvarado lost her job, she was already skimping on her health, forgoing therapy for carpal tunnel to save on the steep copay and deductibles. Now
