(Tommie Lee/MNC) Indiana health officials say the new strain of COVID-19 detected in Britain isn’t cause for alarm.More than 40 countries are restricting travel from the U-K, and New York is requiring air passengers arriving from the U-K to test negative before boarding. Indiana health commissioner Kristina Box says the state will be “appropriately respectful” of the mutation, but says there’s no indication it will render the new COVID vaccines ineffective. She says the new strain is more easily transmitted, but isn’t any more deadly.Box says the higher infectiousness underlines the importance of the precautions health departments have advised all along: wear your mask, wash your hands, maintain social distance, and stay home if you’re sick.

I feel great but I am tired. “I need a bit of a rest before I can even think of celebrating,” he said.Peter was met at the finish line by his friend and fellow marathon man Seamus Temple of Crievesmith, Letterkenny.At 70 years young Seamus completed the half marathon version of the race in preparation for the Dublin City Marathon in October.His friend Senator Jimmy Harte was also one of the first to congratulate Peter. Today Donegal Daily salutes Peter.He’s an inspiration to young and old that life is for living and not sitting around growing old.PETER BAFFLES THE DOCS TO NOTCH UP HIS 100TH MARATHON was last modified: August 25th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:heart by-passletterkennyMarathonPeter McGlynnlast_img read more
