Coronavirus live news: UK study to expose young people to virus for second time; India cases top 15m
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 05:37:27 GMT

Young, healthy volunteers who have previously had Covid will be deliberately exposed to the virus for a second time; India reports record 273,810 new infections in 24 hours

Hong Kong will suspend flights from India, Pakistan and the Philippines from April 20 for two weeks after the N501Y mutant Covid strain was detected in the Asian financial hub for the first time, authorities said in a statement late on Sunday.

The three countries would be classified as “extremely high risk” after there had been multiple imported cases carrying the strain into Hong Kong in the past 14 days, the government said.

The city reported 30 new coronavirus cases on Sunday, 29 of which were imported, marking the highest daily toll since March 15. Hong Kong has recorded over 11,600 cases in total and 209 deaths.

Hong Kong authorities have been urging residents to get vaccinated for coronavirus with only around 9% of Hong Kong’s 7.5 million residents vaccinated so far.

The government last week widened the city’s vaccine scheme to include those aged between 16 to 29 years old for the first time, as they aim to boost lacklustre demand for inoculations amongst residents.

Airlines impacted by Hong Kong’s ban on travellers from India, Pakistan and the Philippines include carriers such as Cathay Pacific, Hong Kong Airlines, Vistara and Cebu Pacific.

The immune response needed to protect people against reinfection with the coronavirus will be explored in a new human challenge trial, researchers have revealed.

Human challenge trials involve deliberately exposing healthy people to a disease-causing organism in a carefully controlled manner, and have proved valuable in understanding and tackling myriad conditions from malaria to tuberculosis and gonorrhoea.

Ben Spencer’s last-minute kick snatches dramatic Bath win over Leicester
Sun, 18 Apr 2021 16:40:56 GMT
  • Bath 21-20 Leicester
  • Mercer shines; Spencer’s conversion keeps play-off hopes alive

Zach Mercer will turn his back on English rugby when he leaves Bath for Montpellier this summer and on the evidence here, he will be a huge miss for his current club and country.

Many have questioned some of Eddie Jones’s selections after England’s awful fifth-placed Six Nations finish last month. The last of Mercer’s two Tests came in 2018 and he is clearly not rated by Jones, but his performance as Bath edged their old rivals Leicester was certainly international standard. Jones may not care that Mercer is departing for France but Bath certainly do. The 23-year-old No 8 was everywhere against the Tigers as Ben Spencer’s conversion won it for the home side at the death.

The race for rare earth minerals: can Australia fuel the electric vehicle revolution?
Fri, 16 Apr 2021 20:00:15 GMT

China dominates supply of the elusive metals, which are vital to modern technology, but finding new sources is becoming a global priority

There are an estimated 1.4bn cars on the world’s roads today. Around 78m new cars are sold every year. To head off the worst effects of climate change, every single one will need to go electric eventually.

Whether it rolls off a production line in Fremont, California, or comes together in a vast megafactory in Qinghai, China, a colossal amount of human effort must go into building the components and obtaining their base minerals. In each car, for instance, there is roughly a kilogram of magnet providing the motion needed to fire engines and electrify windows. Roughly 30% of this material is made up of rare earth material known as neodymium and praseodymium (NdPr).

A gunman who murdered eight people at a FedEx warehouse in Indianapolis legally purchased the two semi-automatic rifles he used in the attack, months after a shotgun he owned was confiscated by police over concerns around his mental health.

Brandon Hole, 19, who killed himself at the conclusion of the massacre, bought the two assault weapons in July and September 2020, according to Indianapolis metropolitan police chief Randal Taylor, after the shotgun was taken from him in March following a call from his mother concerned at his mental state.

The FBI Is Now Securing Networks Without Their Owners’ Permission
2021-04-14T14:56:24Z

In January, we learned about a Chinese espionage campaign that exploited four zero-days in Microsoft Exchange. One of the characteristics of the campaign, in the later days when the Chinese probably realized that the vulnerabilities would soon be fixed, was to install a web shell in compromised networks that would give them subsequent remote access. Even if the vulnerabilities were patched, the shell would remain until the network operators removed it.

Now, months later, many of those shells are still in place. And they’re being used by criminal hackers as well...

The world needs a patent waiver on Covid vaccines. Why is the UK blocking it? | Gabriel Scally
Sun, 18 Apr 2021 12:00:02 GMT

Letting countries create their own generic versions of the jabs is the best way to combat the spread of vaccine-resistant variants

Last year the British government made a series of mistakes in its handling of the Covid-19 pandemic. As countries from Thailand to the US battle another wave of infections driven by more virulent strains, the UK risks making another historic mistake that could scupper our chance to end this pandemic.

Because coronavirus cases continue to rise worldwide, the risk of vaccine-resistant variants is increasing. Public health voices have already warned that if we don’t rapidly vaccinate the world’s population, our current generation of Covid-19 vaccines could be rendered ineffective within a year. The need for a rapid, global vaccination rollout is clear and urgent.

International training
Tue, 30 Mar 2021 16:46:00 +0200

ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti has started training at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, USA. Set to launch for her second mission in spring 2022, Samantha is already getting reacquainted with International Space Station systems in a series of refresher courses.

Samantha was last on the International Space Station in 2014 for her Futura mission. She spent 200 days in space, conducting European and international scientific experiments and Space Station operations.

In the coming months, her schedule will intensify as she trains for the specific experiments and tasks she will perform in space during her second mission.

As a collaborative, international effort between the United States, Europe, Canada, Russia and Japan, Space Station training takes place across the globe. Samantha will be training between Johnson Space Center in the USA, the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre in Star City, Russia and the European Astronaut Centre in Cologne, Germany.

Samantha and her fellow Class of 2009 astronauts will soon welcome new colleagues. For the first time in over a decade, the European Space Agency is seeking new astronauts and applications are open from 31 March to 28 May 2021. A six-stage selection process will start thereafter. This is expected to be completed in October 2022.

Ready to make #YourWayToSpace? Check out the dedicated website with all the information relating to ESA’s 2021–22 astronaut selection. 

Most importantly, get ready to apply. Perhaps you will find yourself where Samantha is today.
