UK detects swine flu

A new type of swine flu has been detected in someone from the United Kingdom, the Health Security Agency announced yesterday. The individual has since recovered and symptoms were mild. Health officials are unsure how this person contracted swine flu, worrying that it may be spreading within the community.

Mounjaro leads to more and faster weight loss

Eli Lilly’s Mounjaro leads to faster and greater weight loss than its competitors from Novo Nordisk, health records show. After three months of treatment, patients lost an average of 2.3% more body fat than those taking Ozempic. After a year, Mounjaro patients lost an average of 7.2% more than those on Ozempic.

Biden boosts medical supplies

President Joe Biden has invoked the Cold War-era Defense Production Act to increase investment in U.S. manufacturing and medical supplies. This is the first step of a 30-part plan to help supply chain issues and counter historical inflation. The council will also address essential medicine shortages and supplies needed to diagnose, treat, and prevent diseases related to chemical, biological, or nuclear attacks.
