  • Special Report: Local governments 'overwhelmed' in race to trace U.S. COVID contacts news

    With the pandemic claiming about a thousand American lives a day, many city and county departments say they lack the money and staff to expeditiously identify people who have been exposed, according to a Reuters survey of 121 local agencies, as well as interviews with dozens of state and local officials, epidemiologists and tracers. The United States badly lags other wealthy countries in contact tracing, including South Korea and Germany, which ramped up their programs months ago. On Alabama’s hard-hit Gulf Coast, health department staffers are stretched so thin they are directing individuals who test positive to notify any contacts themselves, said Rendi Murphree, director of Mobile County’s Bureau of Disease Surveillance and Environmental Services.

  • Thailand launches another probe in Red Bull heir's 'hit-and-run' news

    Thailand's attorney general ordered a new investigation Tuesday into the heir to the Red Bull billions accused of a fatal hit-and-run, following public outrage after his charges were dropped last month. Vorayuth "Boss" Yoovidhya was accused of killing a police officer in 2012 when he crashed his Ferrari in Bangkok's most exclusive neighbourhood. The case has dragged on for years, and Vorayuth - the grandson of Red Bull co-founder Chaleo Yoovidhya and one of the heirs to the family fortune - fled the kingdom in 2017. Last month, police and prosecutors said all charges against the 38-year-old had been dropped, including reckless driving causing death, citing new evidence. The move spurred widespread anger amplified by trending hashtags on Twitter such as BoycottRedBull, as his case was perceived as an example of the impunity apparently enjoyed by the kingdom's powerful billionaire class. It also led to a rare statement by eight members of the sprawling Yoovidhya clan - considered Thailand's second-richest family according to Forbes - who broke ranks to decry it. Under growing pressure, the attorney general's office, police and the prime minister's office have now each opened probes into why the charges were dropped.
