Covid-19 cases are increasing again in the UK, but the dynamics of this wave will be different because the majority of adults have been vaccinated. Martin McKee was immediately convinced that a third wave of Covid-19 was imminent when the first data on the new Delta form of Sars-CoV-2 began to trickle in between April and early May. McKee, a professor of European public health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, was particularly taken aback by estimates of Delta’s R number, the average number of persons infected by a single virus. “It was clear that this was…

The metropolis of Sydney is at a standstill – a two-week lockdown has been imposed. The reason: the delta variant is spreading rapidly. Many people in the country are frustrated by the low vaccination rates. Countries in Europe have so far looked at the Corona situation in Australia with a mixture of envy and admiration.

According to the statement, runner-up Mohsen Resai received only 3.3 million votes. The outgoing president, Hassan Ruhani, said the winner…

Anyone playing Cyberpunk 2077 on the PlayStation 4 could almost mistake Night City for a ghost town by now. It’s a compromise that CD Projekt makes to improve the game’s performance on the console, most recently with the new patch 1.23 for the sci-fi RPG. If, like me, you’ve played the PC version of the title, you’ll know that there may well be some vehicles and townspeople on and off the roads. This video of the PC version also shows that.
