Omicron's potential impact on the pandemic is yet unknown, but @andrewpekosz and @davidwdowdy of @JohnsHopkinsSPH say the COVID-19 mitigation strategies already in place around the world offer the best defense in the meantime. hub.jhu.edu/2021/11/30/omicrโ€ฆ

Maybe people should read the links, which would take less time, than posting unfounded comments.

Great visionary speech of @DrTedros at the #WHASpecial It is time for a comprehensive and effective International treaty to predict, prevent and manage future pandemics
"The longer vaccine inequity persists, the more opportunity this virus has to spread and evolve in ways we cannot predict nor prevent. We are all #InThisTogether"-@DrTedros #WHASpecial #VaccinEquity

Il problema del #Sudafrica NON รจ la mancanza di vaccino: "South Africa has asked J&J and Pfizer...to delay delivery of COVID-19 vaccines because it now has too much stock, health ministry officials said, as vaccine hesitancy slows an inoculation campaign." 1/2

The first known Covid patient was a vendor at a Wuhan market, a new report claims. The finding may revive debate over how the pandemic began. nyti.ms/3FDJRZ9

As #COVID16 resurges across all of Europe and the UK, governments turn to compulsory vaccination, lockdowns, vaccine passports & a host of other strict efforts to staunch the #SARSCoV2 flames.

From Israel's data, we've known about waning efficacy of vaccines since July. And full restoration of ~95% efficacy with boosters shot since September Tomorrow @US_FDA will approve booster shots for all adults (current age criteria is 65+). Saying "it's about time" to too kind.

Trovo questa decisione sacrosanta. Occorre coraggio e determinazione per uscire dalla pandemia. Auspico una decisione rapida che vada nella stessa direzione, in Italia e in Europa.
Dai su erigete la pira e mano alle faci. Per me Draghi dovrebbe decidere la stessa cosa anche da noi

Italy takes on Covid patients from Germany. Germany did similar for Italy and other member states over the course of the last two years. Good to see this kind of EU solidarity working both ways, showing that in the long run all member states benefit from solidarity.

Tra il rischio che comporta un'infezione che praticamente risparmia solo le unghie e quello relativo a un vaccino efficace somministrato senza problemi in miliardi di dosi non ho la minima esitazione. A lungo termine io temo il COVID, non il vaccino! immagine da @EricTopol
