    Mayor-elect Eric Adams has promised a seamless transition regarding the city's COVID-19 response, including keeping outgoing Mayor Bill de Blasio's planned mandate that private businesses require vaccination for all employees. 'We can't shut down our city again. We can't allow the city to go further into economic despair,' Adams during a morning press conference on Thursday, where he unveiled his six-point plan to combat coronavirus. At the beginning of December, de Blasio announced what he called a 'pre-emptive strike' to prevent another wave of the virus, forcing private employers to require all on-site workers get their shots.  Businesses were required to start showing proof of employee vaccinations on December 27, per the policy. The mandate covers all companies in the five boroughs, from Goldman Sachs to the corner bodega.  Adams' health advisers are currently mulling the idea to include booster shots in the current vaccine mandates, meaning employers would have to hound their workers to get a third shot.  School vaccination mandates could also be on the table, officials said. The health commissioner said that his working group will also...
    The death rate from COVID-19 in the United States remains stubbornly high compared to the United Kingdom and other developed nations, raising questions about why the world's largest economy hasn't been able to better rein in mortality. Considering a variety of factors, it is likely that differences in vaccination rates play a key role in the higher US death rate, with less widespread adoption of vaccines in America fueling more severe illness and death.  The US overtook the UK in June as the G7 nation hardest hit by COVID deaths on a total per capita basis, and has maintained the ignominious title ever since. Since November 1, the US has averaged about 3.8 COVID deaths per million people each day, more than double the UK rate of 1.8, according to a DailyMail.com analysis of data from Our World in Data. The difference has remained consistent even as the UK saw COVID case rates spike well above US levels as the Omicron surge took hold. Since November 1, the US has averaged about 3.8 COVID deaths per million people each day,...
    A new Covid strain has now been spotted in 31 countries after a latest case was recorded on Australian shores.  The Lambda strain caught the attention of the World Health Organization after it was spotted in the UK, US and Germany.  Thought to originate in Peru, the lethal strain made up almost 81 per cent of the country's cases since April.  Doctors in the South American nation claimed it is more transmissible than any other variant because of how quickly it has spread over the past four months.  Sequencing in the country and neighbouring Chile, where the most cases of the strain have been recorded, is poor compared to the UK and US. It only accounts for 0.3 per cent of infections in the US and less than 0.1 per cent in Britain. Coronavirus-tracking researchers are yet to uncover proof the virus is actually any more contagious than existing strains, including Delta or 'Delta Plus'.  Others also insist there is no evidence to suggest it is deadlier, despite some doctors linking its spread to Peru having the world's worst Covid mortality rate....
    Seychelles, the world's most Covid-vaccinated nation with more than 60 per cent of its adult population having received two jabs, has reintroduced restrictions because of a spike in cases. All schools have been closed and sporting activities cancelled for two weeks in the idyllic Indian Ocean archipelago, as infections continue to surge. Measures also include a ban on house-hold mixing, some types of gatherings, and the early closure of shops, bars and casinos. Non-essential workers are also being encouraged to work from home, and an 11 pm curfew will remain in force. The restrictions come despite the country fully vaccinating over 62 per cent of its adult population with two doses — the second highest rate in the world.  Only Gibraltar, a British overseas territory, has had a more successful roll-out, data shows. There are currently 1,068 active cases in the Seychelles, of which a third have been detected in people given two doses of either AstraZeneca's or China's Sinopharm's vaccine.   It is unclear what has triggered the surge in cases but testing has detected the South African variant spreading on the...
    (Bloomberg) – Brazil surpassed India in coronavirus infections, retaking the position of the second most affected country in the world, as it rushes to contain the spread of the virus that is wreaking havoc in the vast Latin American nation. On Friday, the country reported 85,663 new cases, bringing the total to 11,363,380. The number of deaths increased by 2,216, bringing the number to 275,105. Now, Brazil is only behind the United States in deaths and infections worldwide. Although the combination of strict social distancing restrictions and mass vaccination has caused infections to decrease in much of the world in recent weeks, Brazil is currently going through the worst phase of the pandemic. After the end-of-year gatherings and clandestine Carnival festivities, cases and deaths have increased, while a new, more transmissible variant is accelerating the contagion. Hospitals across the country are on the brink of collapse, prompting state governors to impose curfews and close deals. “The situation is totally out of control,” said Raquel Stucchi, an infectious disease expert and professor at Unicamp University. “It is likely to continue to...
