Hopefully J&J will be approved sometime in the next month, however their production has hit a snag and will be behind schedule so if approved in February may not see any until mid March to April.

Seems the US is about the only country not facing Pfizer delays, but they do have Pfizers largest or one of the largest manufacturing facilities so that helps.
Yep, its hopefully a temporary closure to allow production ramp up - it is still a shame (completely understand though as the dry run/temporary opening allows them to identify teething issues etc).

Here is hoping UK deaths start to tail off - were 10 days since the peak of cases so hopefully a few days more and the worst of the death toll will begin to pass.

All rows.

That’s how Health Canada described the impact of two Air Transat flights that landed in Montreal from Haiti this week, purportedly carrying so many infected passengers that everybody on board was at risk.

There are similar mutations elsewhere in the world already

Now that they have some data, Boris seems to think that the UK variant is more deadly than the original.

On this day in 2020. Turns out airport screening didn't work out all that effectively. (screen shot, don't try to play the video. )

Suggestions in the UK that schools might not reopen until May. I feel so sorry for the people trying to work from home and do homeschooling of kids, it must be a nightmare.

It's the poorer kids who go to School for a decent school lunch and support that I am most worried about. This will be devastating for them.

I think, not a single western country in the world has adequate plans for schooling during the pandemic. They also have no real understanding what it might mean for any kids if the report card or the leaving cert is from 2020.

I think once the pandemic is over kids should be given the option / choice to repeat the whole year without any hesitation. I think we owe it to the young generation to offer them education and leaving certs which have some value in the market and eliminate the "you graduated / left school in Corona 2020, no wonder you knowledge is that bad...."

Replace Moderna with Pfizer and the article is almost the same as those from a few weeks ago, vaccines appear to work, but more study is needed.

Looks like the South African strain might be an issue. Moderna is testing to see if a 3rd booster might be needed/beneficial.Blood samples exposed to the new variants appeared to have sufficient antibodies to achieve this neutralising effect, although it was not as strong for the South Africa variant as for the UK one.

Moderna says this could mean that protection against the South Africa variant might disappear more quickly.

British Columbia while not a country has more or less continued school as normal since September, so there are places where schooling during the pandemic is basically the same.
