President Trump may not be debating Joseph R. Biden Jr. on the same stage on Thursday night as originally planned. But the two candidates will still face off head-to-head.
NBC News confirmed on Wednesday that it would broadcast a prime-time town-hall-style event with Mr. Trump from Miami on Thursday at 8 p.m. Eastern, with the president fielding questions from Florida voters.
The event will directly overlap with an already-scheduled ABC televised town-hall meeting with Mr. Biden in Philadelphia, which will begin at the same time.
Mr. Biden’s town hall has been on the books since last week, after Mr. Trump, who had recently contracted the coronavirus, rejected plans to convert the second formal presidential debate into a virtual matchup; the debate was eventually canceled.
The NBC event, to be moderated by the “Today” show host Savannah Guthrie, had been contingent on the Trump campaign providing independent proof that the president
LATEST SCIENCE AND RESEARCH
READ | Trial launched in SA to test whether MMR vaccine protects healthcare workers against Covid-19
Scientists from the University of Cape Town (UCT) and Witwatersrand (Wits) are launching a clinical trial to test whether the childhood vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) can protect frontline health-care workers from Covid-19, the disease caused by SARS-CoV-2, or reduce the severity of illness for infected individuals.
Researchers of the trial are hoping to learn whether the vaccine can elicit an immune response that slows the spread of the virus and protects frontline healthcare workers who work in high-risk settings from developing Covid-19.
The MMR vaccine was approved almost 50 years ago and has since been safely given safely to hundreds of millions of people around the world.
The World Health Organization (WHO) states that the vaccine is widely used for

LIBBY, Mont. — Frank Fahland has spent most days since the pandemic began at the site of his dream house, working to finish a 15-year labor of love while keeping away from town and the people closest to him.
Like thousands of people from Libby and Lincoln County, in the far northwestern corner of Montana, the 61-year-old Fahland has lungs already scarred by years of breathing in the asbestos fibers that have contaminated
WILMINGTON, MA — Wilmington was newly designated a moderate risk, yellow, community in the state’s latest town-by-town coronavirus update, Wednesday. The town has 20 active positives, the Board of Health said Wednesday.
Towns were labeled yellow if they reported more than four confirmed cases per 100,000 residents over the past two weeks. Wilmington reported 14 new cases, bringing it to 4.1 per 100,000.
According to data released by the Board of Health, 13 of the town’s 20 current coronavirus patients are 30 or under and none are over 60. But the Boarded reported 11 cases at the Care One nursing home, Tuesday, separate from the community count.
Forty communities were labeled high-risk, Wednesday. State rules mean that high-risk communities, plus others that were high-risk in the last two updates, cannot move on to the next phase of reopening. Towns were marked high-risk, or red, if they reported more than eight

Over the past week, Merrimack College has seen a substantial increase in the number of COVID-19 cases on campus. Those cases have all been related to Merrimack College and contact tracing completed by the Town has shown no evidence of community spread due to this cluster.
We have been working directly with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and other state agencies to gather information and get guidance as we navigate this event.
“Through contact tracing, which includes interviews completed with every positive case by our public health nurses, we have determined that the Merrimack cases are currently isolated,” said Brian LaGrasse. “We will continue to monitor all positive cases and public health data to ensure that the cases remain isolated and our community is safe. This is
PHILADELPHIA – All hands look like they will be on deck for the Eagles when they entertain the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.
“I’m 100 percent ready to go,” said the running back following Friday’s practice.
“I’m ready to go,” said the right tackle following Thursday’s practice.
The Eagles’ injury report Friday afternoon reflected the return to good health of Sanders and Johnson, but also defensive linemen Derek Barnett and Javon Hargrave.
Yes, Hargrave. The Eagles and their fans will finally get a glimpse of what $26 million bought them in the offseason. That is the guaranteed money the DT got as part of three-year, $39M cotract he signed as a free agent from the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Barnett was one of two players listed as questionable, but the expectation is that he will play after being a full participant in every practice this week.
President Trump was in the spotlight Tuesday night for a rare town hall in Philadelphia with undecided voters, where he fielded questions on topics including the coronavirus pandemic and health care, which have been on the minds of many voters.
He made a variety of claims about the health care system, health care proposals and the scientific realities of COVID-19. Here are some of the highlights, as well as fact checking and context for his statements.
Mr. Trump repeated a claim Tuesday night he has made in the past — that COVID-19 is “probably going to go away now a lot faster because of the vaccine” but “would go away without the vaccine.”
When ABC News moderator George Stephanopoulos asked the president to clarify if he believes the virus will go away without a, Mr. Trump responded, “Sure, over a period of time.”
