Coronavirus infections are predicted to surge

BEIJING – One nation after another is closing its doors to most Chinese travelers as the death toll from the coronavirus continues to rise with no sign that the virus can be contained before it becomes a full-blown planetary health crisis. China’s increasing isolation threatens to turn this new epidemic into a geopolitical conflict, intensifying pre-existing tensions between China and the United States and having potentially significant impacts on the global economy.

In brief: Wildlife officials seek protection for fisher

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposed this week to protect the West Coast population of fisher as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act.  About the size of large house cats, fishers belong to a family of mammals that includes weasels, mink, martens and otters. Fishers live in low- to mid-elevation forests and require cavities in trees and snags to rear their young safely, away from predators.
