What  Wikipedia / Google Says
About ‘Coronavirus Covid-19 Pandemic‘ ? :
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.
 
Most people who fall sick with COVID-19 will experience mild to moderate symptoms and recover without special treatment.
 
 
HOW IT SPREADS
 
The virus that causes COVID-19 is mainly transmitted through droplets generated when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or exhales. These droplets are too heavy to hang in the air, and quickly fall on floors or surfaces.
 
You can be infected by breathing in the virus if you are within close proximity of someone who has COVID-19, or by touching a contaminated surface and then your eyes, nose or mouth.

Covid-19 vaccine deliveries to begin ‘literally next week,’ Trump says in Thanksgiving call to US troops overseas

Covid-19 vaccine deliveries to begin ‘literally next week,’ Trump says in Thanksgiving call to US troops overseasCovid-19 vaccine deliveries to begin ‘literally next week,’ Trump says in Thanksgiving call to US troops overseas

US President Donald Trump said that deliveries of the coronavirus vaccine are set to begin by next week, noting that healthcare workers and seniors will be among the first to receive the jab.

“We are rounding the curve. The vaccines are being delivered – literally it will start next week and the week after, and it will hit the frontline workers and seniors and doctors, nurses… we’re going very quickly,” Trump said on Thursday, during a Thanksgiving address to US troops stationed overseas.

Calling the short development time a “miracle,” the president said two pharma firms had already announced good results for their inoculations – likely referring to Pfizer and Moderna – and that three other companies would also have vaccines ready soon.

“This normally would have taken four or five years, just getting it through the FDA,” he added.

Trump has repeatedly noted that the military would take some part in doling out the vaccine, but has left its exact role a mystery in public comments. While Americans are unlikely to receive injections out of the back of a humvee, the Department of Defense has closely coordinated with other government agencies in the push for the jab, dubbed “Operation Warp Speed.” Part of that work has meant helping pharmaceutical companies establish “pop-up sites” to conduct vaccine trials, for example, providing logistics support and even double-wide trailers for the tests.

Though state governors have the option of using National Guard units to help move doses of the vaccine, distribution itself will largely be left to manufacturers, which work through networks of commercial shippers. The military will, however, monitor the distribution process through an “operations center,” with the main spokesman for Operation Warp Speed, Paul Mango, telling reporters: “They will know where every vaccine dose is.

“If a vaccine dose is at risk of expiring, they will guide the movement of that to someplace else,” he said.

Director-General of the Israel Institute for Biological Research said that they are in the final stretch.

JERUSALEM: Israel began human trials on Sunday for its COVID-19 vaccine candidate which, if successful, could be ready for the general public by the end of next summer.

Eighty volunteers will initially take part in the trial that will be expanded to 960 people in December. Should those trials succeed, the third stage with 30,000 volunteers is scheduled for April/May.

“We are in the final stretch,” said Shmuel Shapira, Director General of the Israel Institute for Biological Research.

The institute, which is overseen by the Defense Ministry, began animal trials for its “BriLife” vaccine in March and announced a week ago it had received regulatory approval to take it to the next stage.

Shmuel Yitzhaki, head of the institute`s biology division, told Reuters that if all goes well the vaccine could reach the general population by the end of next summer.

While the first batch of volunteers received the potential vaccine, around the country elementary students returned to school as a second nationwide lockdown comes to a gradual end.

Restrictions in Israel, with a population of 9 million, are being slowly lifted following a steady decline in the rate of daily infections.

First through fourth graders were the first to return to school on Sunday. Older kids are still learning from home.

The government also approved the reopening in stages of businesses and recreational activities.

The country reported 674 new cases on Friday – down from a peak of more than 9,000 several weeks ago. It has reported 2,541 deaths from the pandemic.

YouTube tweaks its COVID-19 fact-check ‘panel’ to add vaccine info too

youtube-1

YouTube gets more than 2 billion visitors a month. 

Angela Lang/CNET

YouTube is adding a second link, ushering users to authoritative info on COVID-19 vaccines, to its fact-check “panels,” boxes that show up below some videos about COVID or the novel coronavirus and pop up above search results for some queries about the same matters on Google’s massive video site. Both links in the panel direct users to information from local health authorities, like the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or the World Health Organization. 

The additional link is already showing up in searches and under videos in the US, and the change should roll out globally over the next couple of days, according to the company. 

Searches on YouTube on Tuesday for the simple terms “coronavirus” and “COVID” triggered the info panel to show up, displaying both of the links. But searches for more-general terms like “vaccine” or racist phrases like “kung flu” didn’t trigger the panel above search results. 

YouTube’s platform has long been criticized for proliferating conspiracy theories and misinformation. The fact-check information panels are one of the tools YouTube has introduced in the last two years aimed at counteracting false info there, in addition to reducing recommendations on borderline videos and removing some posts and channels altogether.

Putin won’t take Russia’s COVID-19 vaccine, despite claims of 90% effectiveness

Russian leader Vladimir Putin will not be taking the country’s newly developed coronavirus vaccine, the Kremlin announced Tuesday — even though health officials declared the shot was more than 90 percent effective and is already being given to some people.

“We have not yet begun widespread vaccination and the head of state can’t take part in vaccination as a volunteer,” a Kremlin spokesman told Bloomberg. “It’s impossible. The president can’t use an uncertified vaccine.”

This was despite the fact that just hours after Pfizer announced promising results from its late-stage COVID-19 vaccine trial — which showed the inoculation was more than 90 percent effective — Russia proclaimed the same of its Sputnik V vaccine, without providing any studies.

Health officials have since said the shot was shown to be 91.4 percent effective in preventing coronavirus infections in initial tests, although final results have yet to be published, according to Bloomberg.

Earlier data, however, showed that the vaccine was more than 95 percent effective among volunteers who were injected, the Guardian reported.

The results stem from a 42-day trial of 19,000 volunteers who received two doses of Sputnik and 21 volunteers who got a single dose, the outlet said.

But while Putin has yet to try his country’s vaccine, other top Russian officials, including Kirill Dmitriev, head of the country’s Direct Investment Fund, have been among those volunteering to be jabbed — and reported feeling fine.

“This is indisputably positive news not just for Russia, but for the entire world, for all countries,” Dmitriev told the Guardian.

Russia’s Sputnik V is just one of several candidates in the worldwide race to develop a vaccine for COVID-19, which has so far infected more than 59 million people worldwide and killed 1.4 million, according to Johns Hopkins University data.

There are more than 2 million cases in Russia.

Israel in talks for Pfizer’s vaccine, official says

Nov 9, 2020

The Israeli government is in talks to acquire the Pfizer-produced coronavirus vaccine, which the American drugmaker said Monday is more than 90% effective in preventing COVID-19.

Pfizer, which developed its experimental vaccine with German partner BioNTech, announced on Monday promising findings following phase 3 of the clinical trial. An initial analysis indicated an efficacy rate of more than 90% among participants without evidence of a prior COVID-19 infection.

Chezy Levy, the director-general of Israel’s Health Ministry, said Monday that Israel was trying to acquire the vaccine.

“We’re in contact toward signing with Pfizer,” he told Israel’s Army Radio.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed Pfizer’s announcement on Monday as “a very important day in the global fight against the coronavirus.”

“My goal at the moment is to do one thing: Bring vaccines to you, citizens of Israel. And we will do so,” he said. “This means that the end is in sight. I said a few days ago that I see light at the end of the tunnel. I think that train is already exiting the tunnel.”

Israel already has vaccine cooperation deals with US biotechs Moderna and Arcturus. Following the signing of the US-brokered Abraham Accords, Israeli and Emirati drug companies are also collaborating on COVID-19 research.

Trials for an Israeli-made vaccine are also underway, with the Israel Institute for Biological Research administering the BriLife SARS-CoV-2 vaccine to the first round of volunteers earlier this month. The head of the research institute has said he hopes a vaccine will be ready for public use by next summer.
