This is a very good analysis of the various vaccines about to be approved.
If you don’t want to read it all, there is a ‘bottom line’ summary at the end of each question section.
Generally it seems to be good news.

One death from Covid every 17 seconds in Europe, WHO says
Dr Hans Kluge fears for national health systems but says stricter rules are showing promise

One person is dying from coronavirus every 17 seconds in Europe, the regional head of the World Health Organization has said, as the pandemic continues to threaten to overwhelm national health systems around the continent.

Dr Hans Kluge said on Thursday the 53 countries that make up the WHO’s European region had recorded more than 15.7m Covid-19 cases – including 4m this month alone – and nearly 355,000 deaths.

More than 80% of countries were reporting high 14-day incidence rates greater than 100 per 100,000 people, Kluge said, with nearly a third recording very high rates of greater than 700 per 100,000.

“As a result, we are seeing increasing signals related to overwhelmed health systems,” he said, noting that intensive care wards in France have been at 95%-plus capacity for 10 days and those in Switzerland are at full capacity.

Kluge said stricter measures introduced by governments were starting to show promise, with new weekly cases decreasing from over 2m the week before last to roughly 1.8m last week. “It’s a small signal, but it’s a signal nevertheless,” he said.

US coronavirus cases near 200,000 a day as catastrophic crisis hits new heights
Friday saw 198,500 cases, a record infection rate for a single day, as parts of US imposed new restrictions

America’s catastrophic coronavirus crisis hit new heights as the most recent daily total of numbers of new cases neared the grim landmark of 200,000 a day and the overall total of infections in the US was heading to 12m.

The New York Times reported that its database showed a seven-day average has exceeded 100,000 cases a day every day for the last two weeks and that Friday’s total number was 198,500 – a record infection rate for a single day.

Meanwhile, the John Hopkins University database showed that the total number of Covid-19 cases in the US was now more than 11,915,000 cases, by far the largest total in the world.

The news comes as vast swaths of America are imposing new restrictions on movement and businesses in a bid to contain the spiraling pandemic, even as the federal government response led by the Trump administration remains largely passive.

On Saturday California will enact a nighttime curfew as surging coronavirus cases threaten to swamp healthcare systems and the state’s largest county warned that an even more drastic lockdown could be imminent.

The newest restrictions require people not on essential errands to stay home from 10pm to 5am through 21 December, with a possible extension if rapidly worsening trends don’t improve. People will be allowed to shop for groceries, pick up food and even walk their dogs.

US Covid cases, hospitalisations and deaths rise amid Thanksgiving rush
US reported 181,490 new cases on Wednesday as millions defied official advice to travel and gather for Thanksgiving

The US reported 181,490 new coronavirus cases on Wednesday, a third daily rise in a row, as hospitalisations hit a record for a 16th day in succession, at 89,959.

There were 2,297 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University, the largest single-day rise since May, bringing the pandemic toll to 262,065 out of nearly 12.8m cases. The death rate is still lower than in the spring.

The alarming numbers were reported as millions of Americans defied official advice against travel and gatherings for Thanksgiving.

Science.
Up to you. Believe it or not.

Choose to be reckless with pandemic and death, or maybe believe in a different God, or The Ekonony, if you want.
- but you can never argue that you have not been given the clear facts. And alternative, proven ways out.

'Entirely, up to you.

28 days of double-donuts
The Au state of Victoria had the biggest outbreak in Oz since the first wave.

It was heading exponential - from near zero to 725 new cases/day in 5 seconds flat.
Skyrocketing. That peak was on August 5.

Today, double donuts. Zero deaths, Zero new cases for 28 days.
Kapow, knocked out in just a couple of months.

Science.

Looks like Mother Nature has failed in her attempt to slow down the mad suicidal rush to destroy everything on Earth. Perhaps when Covid-25 comes along and kills off a few hundred million more humans her second effort will be more successful.
