As of Tuesday, 400,000 people in the United States and over 2,000,000 globally have lost their lives as a result of COVID-19. While the death toll of the virus is incredibly sad, it also represents something else far more important. During an interview with the Harvard Business Review, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, issued a warning in regards to the COVID-19 death toll, urging people to use it as proof of a fundamental fact. Read on to find out what it is—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus. The Virus Is Real, Warns Dr. Fauci: "Look at Your Own Hospitals"Dr. Fauci explains that the COVID death toll is proof that the virus is 100 percent real. However, due to "mixed messages that have come to Washington" there are people who still believe it is a hoax—despite the fact that hospitals are at capacity and people are dying. "I think when we go back and look at this in history, we'll be scratching our heads and saying, how did that happen?" he said. "You know, how was it that you add a region, a state or a city where the hospitals are being overrun, where you have 20 intensive care unit beds, and you have 50 people who need intensive care that in that same town, city, state, there was still people that think it's a hoax that think it's false news. How can you think that close to 400,000 deaths, which is historic in the proportion, like nothing we've ever seen in 102 years is a hoax? I mean, look at your own hospitals, look at the people who are dying and yet astoundingly, there are people that don't believe that's real. I mean, I'd never seen anything like that."RELATED: 7 Tips You Must Follow to Avoid COVID, Say DoctorsCOVID Is a Health Issue—Not a Political Issue—He SaysFauci explains that due to the fact that the virus was somehow turned into a political issue, the fundamental ways of preventing the spread were rejected by a good portion of the population. "Public health officials have had a very difficult time because if everything we're dealing with was in the context of public health, I don't think you would be seeing this disparity and discrepancy among various sectors in this country about things that seem to be reasonably straightforward—wearing masks, keeping distance, avoiding congregate settings in crowds, particularly indoor," he pointed out. "We have gotten caught, and this is so unfortunate, in being in an extremely divisive society in our own country," he continued, using the Capitol riots as an example. "The issues of public health have been consumed in a divisive context so that there are people who feel that when we say to avoid congregate settings or wear a mask that somehow or other we're encroaching upon something that really has nothing to do with, with public health, it's like their freedom."RELATED: If You Feel This, You May Have Already Had COVID, Says Dr. FauciHow to Survive This PandemicSo follow Fauci's fundamentals and help end this surge, no matter where you live—wear a face mask, social distance, avoid large crowds, don't go indoors with people you're not sheltering with (especially in bars), practice good hand hygiene, get vaccinated when it becomes available to you, and to protect your life and the lives of others, don't visit any of these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.

Some people feel nothing when they get COVID-19; others die. And still others are maimed, possibly for life—dubbed "Long Haulers," they suffer from Long COVID, a series of symptoms that make life nearly unbearable. Natalie Lambert, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Medicine in the Medical School at Indiana University, is perhaps the country's top expert when it comes to Long COVID and she has pinpointed which symptoms that are the most common. Here are the 5 longest-lasting symptoms that are experienced by the most people who took her survey. Read on—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss the full list of Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus. 1 You Are Likely to Feel a Long-Lasting Fatigue According to Dr. Lambert, the majority of her subjects struggled with severe exhaustion, and couldn't kick it. "Fatigue was reported to last an average of over 99 days," she reveals. In July, Dr. Lambert published the ground-breaking Long Hauler Survey, detailing the struggle of long haulers as well as the symptoms they suffer. Fatigue was the most common symptom then as well. 2 You May Feel a "Persistent" Headache A headache is one of the first manifestations of COVID-19, and it is also one of the longest, per Dr. Lambert's latest survey. The long hauler headache is described as "persistent" and sometimes lasts all day and others are episodic. 3 You Might Have Shortness of Breath Shortness of breath, or "difficulty breathing" are also common ailments of long COVID that last for months on end, according to Dr. Lamber's survey pool. This symptom is one of the trademarks of the virus, which attacks the respiratory system. 4 You May Have Brain Fog Another severe symptom that surveyors reported to linger for months after an infection was brain fog. This severe type of cognitive dysfunction makes it difficult for individuals to return to work and function during daily activities. RELATED: 7 Tips You Must Follow to Avoid COVID, Say Doctors 5 You Might Develop a Cough A dry cough is one of the first symptoms that COVID sufferers report—and one of the last to linger, according to Dr. Lambert's survey. 6 How to Survive This Pandemic If you experience any of these symptoms, call a medical professional immediately. And follow Dr. Anthony Fauci's fundamentals and help end this surge, no matter where you live—wear a face mask, social distance, avoid large crowds, don't go indoors with people you're not sheltering with (especially in bars), practice good hand hygiene, get vaccinated when it becomes available to you, and to protect your life and the lives of others, don't visit any of these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.

Two major changes from Costco will alter the way you shop this year. All Costco Photo Centers will close for good on Feb. 14 and there's now curbside pickup at several locations in the Southwest, the wholesale grocery chain recently announced.In December, CEO Craig Jelinek said he thinks getting customers to physically shop in the store is still important despite store capacity limitations and other safety measures in place right now because of the coronavirus pandemic. He said that the store's emphasis on its brick and mortar locations is not going away. However, New Mexico members can now try Costco curbside pickup with a $10 fee and a minimum order of $100 through Instacart, but won't be able to refill ink or take passport photos during a trip to the store. (Unsure of what to order? Here are The 7 Healthiest Foods to Eat Right Now.)Services the Photo Center is known for, like printing, enlargements, greeting cards, canvas prints, photo books, calendars, and blanket, plus business printing products will all still be available to order online and ship to your home at CostcoPhotoCenter.com. The home movie transfer service is also still available on CostcoDVD.com.To use the "easy and convenient" contactless Costco curbside service, customers in Albuquerque can select their groceries on the website and choose same-day delivery and then pickup. All fresh and non-food items are available to order, which is about 2,000 items in total. Customers then receive a text when their order is ready, and there is a one-hour pickup window. A Costco employee will load the car in a designated curbside parking spot.There's no news yet on whether curbside pickup will become available at other locations. But Costco currently offers same-day delivery on perishable groceries like meat, produce, and seafood in some zip codes, also through Instacart. For other non-perishable items, 2-day delivery is available nationwide, except in Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.To get all the latest Costco and other grocery store news delivered right to your email inbox every day, sign up for our newsletter!

The older I get, the surer I am of it: cities are not for me. Lockdown has only further confirmed this. Currently based in the countryside; there is very little I miss about my hometown of London. In fact, I am dreading the return of noisy crowds, obscenely expensive bars and the soul-sapping daily commute. The same goes for when I travel. I see little appeal in city breaks; an immersion into slightly different versions of the same scenes, with the added inconvenience of a language barrier. The greatest adventures I’ve ever had have been situated in those alien landscapes most uncontaminated by humans; Antarctica, Lapland, the Australian Outback and the Namibian desert. My best Covid-era forays last year were to the empty places that would otherwise have been overrun with tourists; Venice and Santorini. The first place I’ll flee to as soon as restrictions lift is to the lonesome South African bush. My first holiday when this is over? Back to the best country on Earth But there is one metropolis I’m keen to tick off before I die, crowds notwithstanding, and that is Tokyo. It appeals to the somewhat unhealthy all-or-nothing aspect of my character. Before I write cities off altogether, it would surely be prudent to first experience the most cityish of all the cities in the world. If I must explore by way of overpopulated public transport, let it be the fastest train in the world; Japan’s bullet service. If I’m going to subject myself to an assault of the senses, let it be the frantic, futuristic, electric billboard-studded streets of its capital. If I’m going to be short on space, why not succumb to the novelty of sleeping in the coffin-like enclosure of a capsule hotel. If my wallet is to be abused by way of an overpriced cocktail, let it be in Asia’s most expensive city, served to me by a robot. And to hell with navigating Europe on a limited vocabulary of French and Spanish, purely out of politeness; I might as well lose myself in a place where hardly anyone speaks a word of English, and deciphering a menu or map will be all-but-impossible. That sounds like an adventure to me. Five ways to experience Tokyo when this is all over By Danielle Demetriou No visit to Tokyo is complete without indulging in one celebrated national pastime: karaoke. Pretending to be Madonna while waving a tambourine in the air has been elevated into an art form in Japan. Fortunately, many karaoke venues consist of floors of endless private rooms rented by the hour – complete with large screens, some percussion and a telephone for food and drinks orders. One such spot is the Dogenzaka branch of Uta Hiroba in Shibuya. utahiro.com The ultimate way to relax in Japan is to slip into the steaming waters of an onsen (hot spring) bath. Fortunately, there’s no need to leave the city to enjoy this - Oedo Onsen Monogatari is a popular family-friendly onsen complex inspired by old Tokyo, with wooden buildings, lanterns and 13 types of baths. daiba.ooedoonsen.jp Image Landscape Portrait Square Original/Custom Edit Selected Crop...

The long arc of sandy beach is dotted with palms and backed by grassy slopes. Lap up the views, or wallow in the natural coral rock pools that are revealed at low tide just off the beach. At the Ginza, flagship of family-run restaurant Kyubey, kimono-clad staff usher guests into a four-storey warren of spaces, from intimate counters to tatami mat rooms. Almost as enchanting as the sushi is elderly owner Imada San, who makes a point of speaking to every guest.

It’s run by Hidetsugu Ueno, a legendary cocktail maestro, whose Singapore Slings and classic dry martinis are the stuff of legend.
