    Now we'll see how good their vaccines are.

    Darwin strikes again.

    A dad-of-five texted his fiancée to say he ‘should have got that damn vaccine’ just before dying with Covid in hospital.
    Michael Freedy, 39, tested positive for the virus while suffering from the effects of what he thought was just bad sunburn after a family trip to San Diego.
    The Las Vegas casino worker’s illness got rapidly worse and he died on Thursday after spending his final days in intensive care, unable to breathe without the help of machines.
    Partner Jessica DuPreez told CNN that the couple had decided to wait a year before getting the shot so they could judge which one was best for their family.

    Full vaccination halves the transmission of the Delta variant of coronavirus and is 60 per cent effective at preventing symptoms of Covid-19, according to Imperial College’s latest React-1 prevalence survey.The findings, released on Wednesday and based on a study of 98,000 volunteers in England, provide the most extensive community evidence so far of the way vaccines protect against Delta, which originated in India and has completely displaced the earlier Alpha variant in the UK since the beginning of April.

    Recent studies have shown 90 per cent vaccine effectiveness in preventing hospitalisation with Delta. In React-1, 40 per cent of participants testing positive were asymptomatic and many others had very mild symptoms. Effectiveness estimates always decrease as researchers include less serious disease.“Vaccination remains highly effective against Delta,” said Imperial’s Paul Elliott, co-leader of the project.

    Actually, we are losing control of it in Sydney too. Get real, and learn to live with it. Get vaccinated. If you're sensible and get around a bit, get a second type of jab when you can too.

    Barbie has created a doll of one of the scientists that helped create the Oxford COVID-19 vaccine, in the hope of inspiring girls to get into science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) careers.

    The COVID-2019 Thread-skynews-barbie-role-models_5467201-jpg

    Professor Dame Sarah Gilbert has been honoured as a 'Barbie Role Model' for her work at the University of Oxford and for her role as project leader in the creation of the COVID-19 vaccine which is now in use in many countries around the world. Professor Gilbert said: "I am passionate about inspiring the next generation of girls into STEM careers and hope that children who see my Barbie will realise how vital careers in science are, to help the world around us. "My wish is that my doll will show children careers they may not be aware of, like a vaccinologist."

    As well as Prof. Gilbert, Barbie is also honouring five other women who have worked during the pandemic.

    They are:


    • Emergency Room nurse Amy O'Sullivan, who treated the first COVID-19 patient at the Wycoff Hospital in Brooklyn, New York.
    • Dr Audrey Cruz, a frontline worker from Las Vegas who joined forces with other Asian-American physicians to fight racial bias and discrimination.
    • Dr. Chika Stacy Oriuwa, a psychiatry resident at the University of Toronto, Canada, who advocated against systemic racism in healthcare.
    • Biomedical researcher Dr Jacqueline Goes de Jesus, who is credited for leading the sequencing of the genome of a COVID-19 variant in Brazil.
    • Dr Kirby Whitby who co-founded 'Gowns for Doctors', a gown that could be laundered and re-used.


    Barbie is also making a donation to Prof. Gilbert's chosen organisation, Women in Science and Engineering, which runs an outreach resource created to inspire girls to consider a career in STEM.


    In the UK, previous Barbie role models include broadcaster Clara Amfo, the fastest woman in British history Dina Asher-Smith, champion skateboarder Sky Brown, model and activist Adwoa Aboah, and boxer Nicola Adams.

    It deeply sadens my heart to report that ...

    Donald Trump ally, US senator Lindsey Graham, tests positive for COVID-19 despite being vaccinated

    WASHINGTON, Aug 2 (Reuters) - Republican U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham revealed on Monday that he has tested positive for COVID-19 despite being vaccinated, has flu-like symptoms and will be self-quarantining for 10 days.

    "I am very glad I was vaccinated because without vaccination I am certain I would not feel as well as I do now. My symptoms would be far worse," Graham, 66, wrote on Twitter.

    A total of 18.58 million people in Thailand had received at least one dose of Covid-19 vaccine as of Tuesday night.

    The Covid-19 information centre reported the figures on Wednesday. It said 28% of the population had now been vaccinated, with 4.08 million of the 18.58 million having also received a second dose.

    On Tuesday 379,271 people were inoculated, and 94,363 of them got their second dose.

    Also on Tuesday, 415,000 doses of AstraZeneca vaccine donated by the UK arrived at Suvarnabhumi airport about 9pm, the British embassy in Bangkok reported.

    Mark Gooding, the acting British ambassador, handed the vaccine shipment over to Dr Sophon Iamsirithaworn, deputy director-general of the Department of Disease Control, at the airport.


    The shipment is part of the 100 million vaccine doses the UK government has committed to donating to other countries by June next year.

    Nothing unusual in having a presser for these things involving the ambassador.

    All good PR.

    Still creeping up. I know that yesterday, Phuket recorded 65 new cases (plus 4 more in the Sandbox arrivals), pretty soon it will be up to 90/day when the trigger for shutting down the Sandbox was supposed to be 90/week.
