Das Ergebnis bleibt zwar hinter den Werten der Präparate von Pfizer/Biontech und Moderna zurück. Wenn man aber zunächst nur eine halbe Dosis verabreiche und erst einen Monat später eine volle, dann erreiche der Impfstoff eine Effektivität von 90 Prozent, lässt AstraZeneca wissen. Er soll zudem deutlich preiswerter sein, sich sehr viel leichter lagern und weltweit transportieren lassen als andere Vakzine.
Under a draft order circulating at the Pentagon on Monday, the number of U.S. forces in Afghanistan would be halved from the current deployment of 4,500 troops, officials said.
In Iraq, the Pentagon would trim force levels slightly below the 3,000 troops that commanders had previously announced. And in Somalia, virtually all of the more than 700 troops conducting training and counterterrorism missions would leave.

Two researchers (presumably graduate students) from Stanford University and Tilburg University co-authored a paper asserting they uncovered information suggesting widespread primary election fraud favoring Hillary Clinton had occurred across multiple states.
The paper was not a „Stanford Study,“ and its authors acknowledged their claims and research methodology had not been subject to any form of peer review or academic scrutiny.
The CDC data table is based on an analysis of death certificates that mention COVID-19 as a cause. For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned, the CDC notes.
The other 94% list COVID-19 and other conditions together. Among those deaths, there were, on average, 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death, the public health agency said.
Here we report the apparent presence of phosphine (PH3) gas in Venus’s atmosphere, where any phosphorus should be in oxidized forms. Single-line millimetre-waveband spectral detections (quality up to ~15σ) from the JCMT and ALMA telescopes have no other plausible identification.
According to data provided by Johns Hopkins University, cases are at least 10% higher in 22 states over the previous week.
Dr. Anthony Fauci on Tuesday warned several states including Tennessee, Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky to get a handle on rising coronavirus cases, saying the nation couldn’t afford the kinds of surges seen further south and west.
U.S. coronavirus cases rose by about 55,000 on Sunday, a terribly high number but the lowest daily total since July 6, The Wall Street Journal reported.
About two weeks after protests began in New York City, several indicators tracking the spread of the coronavirus have yet to register a meaningful spike.
However, Mayor Bill de Blasio and health experts said Friday morning that they are waiting until the end of the month to draw any hard conclusions from the data.
But despite ten Tory backbenchers demanding the scalp of his closest adviser and the mastermind of the Brexit Vote Leave campaign, he backed the divisive Machiavellian figure over revelations he twice travelled 270 miles from London to Durham while the public were told to stay at home.
Overall, the researchers conclude an infection rate of between 36-68% among the UK population before 19 March. This percentile range is unquestionably large, but we must remember that this is an early model with quite limited data. The study itself says that 36-40% of the population could have been infected if the mortality rate was 1%.
One may find the CIA’s attempt to influence public opinion problematic. But there is not a single sentence in the document that indicates the CIA intended to weaponise, let alone introduce the term “conspiracy theory” to disqualify criticism. In fact, “conspiracy theory” in the singular is never used in the document. “Conspiracy theories” in the plural is only used once, matter-of-factly in the third paragraph:
Carter Evans reports.
“I’m on the optimistic end of how quickly we can scale testing up,” said Romer, who won the 2018 Nobel Prize for economics. “I do think there’s a way most people could feel safe returning to what feels like normal life this summer if we do this wide-scale testing.”
As world leaders grapple with perilous questions on lifting coronavirus restrictions, Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte looks to ease the West’s longest lockdown and gradually reopen Italy’s economy starting next week.
In the United States, Americans are showing signs of “quarantine fatigue.” The White House is reviewing expanded guidance on reopening society as more states prepare to relax restrictions, but social distancing could continue through the summer.
“Although one of the original models projected 100- to 200,000 deaths, as we’re getting more data and seeing the positive effect of mitigation, those numbers are going to be downgraded,” Fauci said on Fox News. “I don’t know exactly what the numbers are going to be, but right now it looks like it’s going to be less than the original projection.”
One day does not make a trend. Nor does two.
But officials in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut are looking to the numbers on the coronavirus outbreak and seeing signs that the virus’s ghastly toll may be starting to ease, even though thousands more are certain to die before the outbreak, which has already claimed nearly 6,000 lives, comes to an end.
