Nearly a third of US adults now fully vaccinated; Ankara records 318 deaths in 24 hoursBoris Johnson ‘should cancel India trip over new variant’Global death toll passes 3m as pandemic ‘grows at an alarming rate’Labour urges Boris Johnson to cancel trip to India over Covid riskAustralia plans staggered reopening of international borders in late 2021The obscure maths theorem that governs the reliability of Covid testingOlympic chief to visit Japan to approve safety amid Covid cases surge 9.45pm BST Mexico’s health ministry on Sunday reported 1,506 new confirmed cases of Covid-19 and 111 further fatalities, bringing the country’s total to 2,305,602 infections and 212,339 deaths. The government has said the real number of cases is likely significantly higher, and separate data published recently suggested the actual death toll is at least 60% above the confirmed figure. 9.09pm BSTCanadian prime minister Justin Trudeau said on Sunday he would send federal healthcare workers to help Toronto and the province of Ontario battle a third wave of infections that has forced shutdowns of schools and businesses. “We are mobilizing federal healthcare workers from across government departments to deploy on the front lines in Ontario and specifically the Greater Toronto area where the situation is most critical,” Trudeau said in a video posted on Twitter. Other provinces, especially on the Atlantic coast, are working “to determine what human resources and equipment they could free up over the coming days,” Trudeau said, adding that the federal government would cover the costs of that help. The government will also seek to boost rapid testing, especially for essential workers, Trudeau said. Continue reading...
‘On the one hand they want to be relieved of the restrictions. On the other hand, they don’t want to get vaccinated’Republicans who refuse the Covid-19 vaccination are actively “working against” efforts to lift the very coronavirus restrictions they insist are an infringement of their civil liberties, Dr Anthony Fauci, the US government’s leading infectious disease expert, said on Sunday.Fauci’s comments came as the government announced that half of all adults in the US had received at least one Covid-19 shot, marking another milestone in the nation’s largest-ever vaccination campaign. Almost 130 million people 18 or older have received at least one dose of a vaccine, or 50.4% of the total adult population, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported. Almost 84 million adults, or about 32.5% of the population, have been fully vaccinated. Continue reading...

Letting countries create their own generic versions of the jabs is the best way to combat the spread of vaccine-resistant variantsLast year the British government made a series of mistakes in its handling of the Covid-19 pandemic. As countries from Thailand to the US battle another wave of infections driven by more virulent strains, the UK risks making another historic mistake that could scupper our chance to end this pandemic.Because coronavirus cases continue to rise worldwide, the risk of vaccine-resistant variants is increasing. Public health voices have already warned that if we don’t rapidly vaccinate the world’s population, our current generation of Covid-19 vaccines could be rendered ineffective within a year. The need for a rapid, global vaccination rollout is clear and urgent. Continue reading...
Officials ‘astonished’ at level of public engagement a year into the pandemicCoronavirus – latest updatesSee all our coronavirus coverageThe steady stream of people at the two surge testing units in Finchley, north London, last week suggests that, more than a year after the pandemic hit, the public spirit to do something about Covid is still strong.The effectiveness of surge testing is a more open question, however. The rapid testing of 5,000 households last week was an attempt to isolate the South African variant and others of concern. Yet although standard PCR tests come back within 24 hours, genomic sequencing tests to identify a Covid variant take 14 days – by which time the period of infectiousness is usually over.

There are 2 levels of higher risk:
People at high risk from corona virus include people who:
People at moderate risk from corona virus include people who:
If you’re at moderate risk from corona virus, you can go out to work (if you cannot work from home) and for things like getting food or exercising. But you should try to stay at home as much as possible.
Air travel requires spending time in security lines and airport terminals, which can bring you in close contact with other people and frequently touched surfaces. Most viruses and other germs do not spread easily on flights because of how air circulates and is filtered on airplanes. However, social distancing is difficult on crowded flights, and you may have to sit near others (within 6 feet), sometimes for hours. This may increase your risk for exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19.
Bus or train travel
Traveling on buses and trains for any length of time can involve sitting or standing within 6 feet of others.
Making stops along the way for gas, food, or bathroom breaks can put you and your traveling companions in close contact with other people and surfaces.
You may have to stop less often for food or bathroom breaks, but RV travel typically means staying at RV parks overnight and getting gas and supplies at other public places. These stops may put you and those with you in the RV in close contact with others.
You’ve gotten the basics down: you’re washing your hands regularly and keeping your distance from friends and family. But you likely still have questions. Are you washing your hands often enough? How exactly will social distancing help? What’s okay to do while social distancing? And how can you strategically stock your pantry and medicine cabinet in order to minimize trips to the grocery store and pharmacy?
The following actions help prevent the spread of COVID-19, as well as other coronaviruses and influenza:
