Andalusia exceeds the peak of the third wave of coronavirus adding 82 deaths: {Translated from https://sevilla.abc.es} Updated: 01/28/2021 20:39
-Since the beginning of January it has registered 3,477 new patients or, in other words, in a single month it has multiplied by five the number of people who need health care due to the pandemic. From 900 hospitalized patients that were registered on January 2, to the 4,417 that there are this Thursday, 624 of them in the ICU.
-However, based on the data, there appears to be a slowdown in hospitalization for coronavirus. Thus, Andalusia has been recording less than 150 new hospitalized for two days. They are still very high figures but the previous ten days had more than 200 daily entries.
This data seems to point to the theory that the community would already be past the peak of the third wave , which would fall timidly. It is something that can be seen in the infections and the incidence rate, which is moderating and now also in hospitalized patients.
ICU and dead, very high
-However now the focus is on ICUs and the dead. Due to the evolution of the pandemic, it is to be expected that those continue to rise as those who require intensive care and, later, the deceased will skyrocket.
-Meanwhile, infections do experience a notable drop this Thursday. There are 3,676 new infections that the Board has notified, which is almost half that of yesterday Wednesday and, more importantly, the best Thursday in two weeks. Normally this day there is usually a rise in cases and reflects the general state of the pandemic. Thus, those fewer than 4,000 positives would indicate that, indeed, the third wave has already reached its peak.
-The bad news is in the deceased, who have added another 82. Andalusia remains for the third day above 80 deaths and, in just three days it has added 249 fatalities.
-A reflection of the contention of the third wave is that the cumulative incidence (AI) already drops significantly. This Thursday marks 877 compared to 915 yesterday . It is a decline that marks a new trend in the pandemic and seems to relax somewhat the rhythm of the third wave, which would have already passed the peak.

German Panel Advises Against AstraZeneca Jab For Over-65s: Germany’s vaccine commission said Thursday it could not recommend the use of AstraZeneca’s coronavirus vaccine for older people, the latest twist in a row over the jab that has put Britain and the EU on a collision course.
The panel of scientific experts, called STIKO, said the vaccine should only be given to people aged 18 to 65 years old as “there is currently insufficient data to assess the efficacy of the vaccine for persons aged 65 years and older”.
AstraZeneca and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson immediately defended the jabs, which have already been widely used in Britain on older people.
AstraZeneca’s vaccine has not been granted approval yet for general use in the European Union. But the bloc’s medicines regulator EMA is poised to authorise it on Friday. Full article: https://www.ibtimes.com/german-panel-advises-against-astrazeneca-jab-over-65s-3132764


Bison Whisperers Wanted- bison rangers for woodland in the Garden of England: Conservationists in England are looking for the country’s first ever rangers to look after European bison, Europe’s largest land mammal, which is being introduced to Kent more than 15,000 years after its ancestors roamed the landscape.
The ideal applicant would need to understand animal behaviour, he said, but they were not expected to have worked with bison before, “because you can’t until now”. If not a stampede, there has certainly been a rush of applicants for the two jobs.
The bison, which will come from the Netherlands, Romania or Poland, will be kept in a near wild state, he said, helping to manage the woodland by their unique ability to fell trees by rubbing up against them and eating the bark, creating space for other species to thrive.

Facebook beatdown- oversight board overrules company on most censorship cases in first test: Deciding its first-ever cases, Facebook Inc’s oversight board ruled on Thursday that the social media company was wrong to remove four of five pieces of content the board reviewed, including posts Facebook took down for violating rules on hate speech and harmful COVID-19 misinformation.
Facebook said it would abide by the board’s decisions. The group, which was created by Facebook in response to criticism of the way it treats problematic content, also called for the company to be clearer about its rules on what is allowed on its platforms.

Apple CEO Tim Cook rails against ‘purveyors of fake news’ as Facebook feud rages on: Apple CEO Tim Cook took to the virtual stage of the Computers, Privacy, and Data Protection (CPDP) conference on Thursday, attacking social media sites for allowing the spread of misinformation – an apparent barb aimed at Facebook (FB), though he didn’t mention its name.
In his speech, Cook laid into algorithm-driven social media platforms, painting them as, “An interconnected ecosystem of companies and data brokers, of purveyors of fake news and peddlers of division, of trackers and hucksters just looking to make a quick buck.”
Cook’s appearance followed Apple’s announcement that it will soon launch a controversial privacy feature that gives users the ability to stop apps from tracking their activity to collect information for advertisers. The feature could hurt Facebook and other apps that benefit from targeted advertising dollars.

China Begins Using Anal Swabs To Detect COVID-19 Cases!?!: Some Chinese cities are using samples taken from the anus to detect potential COVID-19 infections as China steps up screening to make sure no potential carrier of the new coronavirus is missed amid regional outbreaks and ahead of the Lunar New Year holidays.
Anal swabs require inserting a cotton swab 3 to 5 centimetres (1.2 to 2.0 inch) into the anus and gently rotating it. Last week, a Beijing city official said that anal swabs were taken from over 1,000 teachers, staffers and students at a primary school in the city after an infection had been found. Their nose and throat swabs and serum samples were also collected for testing. PHOTO: ChinaProctologyUnion.
