What do experts make of today's #covidnsw numbers? @CollignonPeter tells @sallyjsara it's good news because the "vast majority" of cases have known links. He also says the effective virus reproduction number has already dropped as Sydneysiders take early steps to limit contact

In 2014, Australia reported that 25 out of 42 metrics (or values) that collectively comprise the Outstanding Universal Value of the #GreatBarrierReef World Heritage Area had deteriorated since its inscription in 1981. Now Australian politicians deny their own reporting to UNESCO. https://t.co/HnVoD2WSHT https://t.co/7FWUL79NRT

9) While the vaccines do mostly work on the #DeltaVariant, the main problem is that 1 dose simply just isn’t enough anymore. Here is the latest LANCET published study. It walks thru the evidence how 1 dose is so weak. 1 dose strategy countries (cough Canada 🇨🇦, cough) must adapt. https://t.co/fQ5QC7a3xm

“Immune escape” in #DeltaVariant. That’s the latest finding - that #B16172 is as bad for antibody neutralization as the Beta variant #B1351 from South Africa 🇿🇦. 1st dose alone very small effect— 2 doses needed, but weakest against Delta. Let’s walk through evidence 🧵 #COVID19 https://t.co/GurgkNVgiY https://t.co/o0s9WIudCW

PAY ATTENTION—the #DeltaVariant is the biggest worry & becoming more dominant worldwide. Why? 📍More contagious 📍More severe (⬆️hospitalization risk) 📍Lower vaccine efficacy/neutralization—1 dose just not enough. Video 📺 part 1 of 2 #COVID19 HT @VickiGSP @IndependentSage https://t.co/R4al4nsuRS

6) here is the relative growth rate of #DeltaVariant versus all other major variants in the past. Delta #B16172 is leaps and bounds faster than any other variant of #SARSCoV2 to date. https://t.co/xp1maJRnyt

Two people in Australia have died from TTS after 3.8m doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine delivered. This makes the likelihood of dying from this syndrome about 0.5 in a million, or if you prefer whole numbers, about 1 in 2m. https://t.co/bfauUAKxHG

We need to put the risk of death from AZ vaccine into better perspective compared to benefits of the vaccine. If you are over >70 yrs and get infected with Covid, you have a higher that 1 in a 100 chance of dying compared to 1 in 2 million chance of dying after AZ vaccine. https://t.co/aUtAaqZZMy

the risk of dying from TTS after the first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine is similar to the risk of being killed by lightning in a year in Australia. And this pales in comparison when compared with other risks, such as the risk of dying in a car accident https://t.co/bfauUAKxHG

@guardian Only rain will end drought say farmers. Experts detect link between sex and pregnancy. Something went wrong in jet crash say investigators. It’s a spoof headline, right?
