‘DWTS’ Finalist Nev Schulman Reveals He and His Wife Had COVID-19

Feeling good! Nev Schulman revealed how his positive COVID-19 diagnosis earlier this year affected his time on Dancing With the Stars.

The Catfish host, 36, revealed earlier this month that he and his wife, Laura Perlongo, tested positive for the coronavirus in March. He explained that the lingering side effects of “COVID toes,” which The New York Times described as swelling and discoloration of a COVID patient’s toes, have interfered with his DWTS journey.

“Throughout the summer and fall I have had this sort of weird toe injury and achiness, you could say, which is pretty common,” Schulman told Entertainment Tonight on Monday, November 23. “I don’t have it so much anymore, but they will start hurting [sometimes]. It has not, fortunately, inhibited my dancing abilities.”

Nurses, doctors use social media to plead for public to take COVID-19 seriously as cases surge

As the number of COVID-19 cases continue to spike across the country and hospitals become full, nurses and doctors are taking to social media to beg the public to take COVID-19 seriously and follow safety guidelines.

“We are physically, emotionally and mentally exhausted,” Dr. Kate Grossman, a pulmonary and critical care physician in Columbia, Missouri, wrote in a message shared on Twitter.

“I have seen so many emergent intubations. I’ve seen people more sick than I’ve ever seen in my life,” Lacie Gooch, an intensive care unit nurse at Nebraska Medicine in Omaha, said in a video that Nebraska Medicine shared on Twitter this week.

Gooch, 25, is a cardiovascular ICU nurse who has been working shifts in her hospital’s COVID-19 ICU since April.

She described a sense of frustration and exasperation at the disconnect between what she and her colleagues are doing to save lives inside the hospital, and

Covid-19 News: Live Updates – The New York Times

Here’s what you need to know:

Credit…Jim Wilson/The New York Times

When infections began rising sharply in the U.S. in September, the growth was driven largely by outbreaks in the Upper Midwest. States like North Dakota and Wisconsin soon became the hardest hit in the nation, relative to their size, and the region continues to struggle.

Now, though, with the whole country’s daily average of new cases is as high as it has ever been — over 171,000 — the most rapid growth is happening elsewhere. Nine states are reporting more than twice as many new cases a day as they did two weeks ago, and none of them are in the Midwest.

The surges in those states — Arizona, California, Delaware, Louisiana, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Pennsylvania and Vermont — reflect a still-escalating national crisis. Officials warn that
