2020 Nobel Prize winners announced

The prestigious award comes with a gold medal and prize money of over $1.1 million courtesy of a bequest left by Swedish inventor Alfred Nobel.

STOCKHOLM, Sweden — The 2020 Nobel Prizes kick off Monday with the naming of the winner, or winners, in the field of physiology and medicine.

A panel at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm will announce the recipient some time after 11:30 a.m. ET (0930 GMT).

The medicine prize carries particular significance this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, which has highlighted the importance that medical research has for societies and economies around the world. However, it is unlikely that the winners will have been directly involved in researching the new virus, as the prize usually goes to discoveries made many years or even decades ago.

Often the Nobel Assembly recognizes basic science that has laid the foundations for practical applications in common use today.

It is common for several scientists who worked in the same field to share the prize. Last year, British scientist Peter Ratcliffe and Americans William Kaelin and Gregg Semenza received the award for discovering details of how the body’s cells sense and react to low oxygen levels.

The prestigious award comes with a gold medal and prize money of 10 million Swedish kronor (over $1,118,000), courtesy of a bequest left 124 years ago by the prize’s creator, Swedish inventor Alfred Nobel. The amount was increased recently to adjust for inflation.

The other prizes are physics, chemists, literature, peace and economics.

New coronavirus testing site coming to Elkridge; additional locations announced at churches through October

A new coronavirus testing site in Elkridge will open later this month, Howard County announced this week.

Quality First Urgent Care is opening a drive-thru testing site at the Elkridge Volunteer Fire Department, 5700 Rowanberry Drive, according to a county news release.

The site will open Oct. 12 and will be operated from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

“As part of the public safety team in Howard County, it is imperative that we support the response to the COVID-19 pandemic,” fire Chief William Anuszewski said in a statement. “The ability to assist with a feasible location for COVID-19 testing without impacting our ability to continue providing quality emergency service is a win-win for the community we serve.”

A doctor’s order will not be required at the site. Appointments can be made ahead of time, but they are not required.

“Opening a testing site in the northern part of the county allows more residents to conveniently obtain testing near them,” Howard County Health Officer Dr. Maura Rossman said in a statement. “The more people who are tested and are aware of their COVID status, the more effective we can be at controlling the spread of the virus.”

The announcement comes a week after the closing of the COVID-19 testing site at the Vehicle Emissions Inspection Program location in Columbia. The VEIP site stopped serving as a testing site in order to allow the emissions location to resume regular operations, according to the county.

Howard County General Hospital also released additional community testing sites for the month of October:

8 a.m. to noon Saturday — First Baptist Church of Guilford, 7504 Oakland Mills Road, Columbia

8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Oct. 10 — Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 4100 St. John’s Lane, Ellicott City

8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Oct. 25 — Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 6020 Ten Oaks Road, Clarksville

10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 31 — Celebration Church, 7101 Riverwood Drive, Columbia
