COVID-19

North Carolina is Grateful for Governor Cooper's Leadership

At a time of unprecedented challenges, including widespread threats to voting rights, devastating impacts of climate change, and continued health risks from a global pandemic, the responsibility of elected officials is to address the most pressing problems at hand.

Thank you to our local hospitals combatting COVID-19

Dear Editor,

Despite the difficulties that COVID-19 brought to North Carolina, our local hospitals rose to the challenge to help those in need, and save countless lives. Whether patients were treated for coronavirus or a routine medical need, local hospitals continued to provide quality care.

Medical Professionals Need Our Support Now More Than Ever

The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally affected every single North Carolinian, whether through the loss of a loved one, jobs disappearing, or getting sick themselves. The health and well-being of medical professionals in our community have also taken a significant toll, yet their struggle has gone unnoticed as they cared for patients on the frontlines at the height of the pandemic.

Xavier Becerra’s Leadership at HHS will Jumpstart Federal COVID-19 Response

Our country is in the middle of the worst public health crisis in American history, and despite the approval of multiple COVID-19 vaccines, the Trump administration's failure to effectively distribute the vaccine far and wide has undermined the response to the pandemic, and left North Carolinians vulnerable to the virus.

Innovation over Misinformation: Trusting in Science to Combat COVID-19

Over the last seven months, we have seen an alarming amount of misinformation spread online and worst by our elected officials as we battle with the coronavirus pandemic. Online, we see conspiracy videos like Plandemic. The original post received millions of views and was shared over 140,000 times. In total, it is estimated that the video through various outlets and reposts received over eight million views. The Plandemic is a misleading short film full of schemes about people profiting from the virus and misinformation about how individuals can protect themselves.

While some state AGs take advantage of COVID-19, Stein’s crisis leadership puts North Carolinians first

The worst of times require the best from our leaders. Tragedy begets fear, and it is in these times of tragedy that we expect the most from those that we elect. Moments like this test the moral foundation of our leaders, laying bare their best (and worst) intentions. Throughout both the COVID-19 pandemic and the nationwide Black Lives Matter protests, the responsibility of charting our nation’s path to action has largely fallen on individual state leaders, including state attorneys general.

Letter from the Frontlines: Please Listen to Experts and Wear Your Mask!

The COVID-19 pandemic is far from over, especially in North Carolina, and I have seen the devastation firsthand. I am a proud nurse with the honor of serving patients in North Carolina. Throughout the past few months, nurses and healthcare providers across the state have been recognized for the work we are doing on the frontlines. I am grateful for the outpouring of love and support I have received personally and from so many who have donated to my hospital.

Amazon is Taking Advantage of Americans’ Pandemic Reliance on E-Commerce

Amazon Fulfillment Center

Amazon is taking advantage of homebound Americans’ reliance on e-commerce during the COVID-19 pandemic. As small businesses struggle to stay afloat, Amazon’s monopoly keeps on growing. During the week of April 19th, 2020 alone, Amazon saw 93 percent more consumer spending than it did during the same week in 2019; meanwhile, 100,000 small American businesses are estimated to have permanently closed since the pandemic started.

The President Could Learn From North Carolina's Leadership on COVID-19

North Carolina is experiencing a serious uptick in new COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations. We have heard from our leaders like Governor Cooper and DHHS Secretary Mandy Cohen that we must remain vigilant despite the warmer temperatures and summer get togethers that everyone is eager to have. We are lucky to have Governor Cooper and Secretary Cohen who believe and trust in science and facts. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for our President and many of our Congressional leaders.
