UK Covid news: Boris Johnson cancels trip to India because of Covid crisis there
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 08:51:42 GMT

Latest updates: PM’s forthcoming trip to India cancelled as country’s total cases reach 15m

Boris Johnson has cancelled his planned trip to India. No 10 has just released this joint statement from the British and Indian governments.

In the light of the current coronavirus situation, Prime Minister Boris Johnson will not be able to travel to India next week. Instead, Prime Ministers Modi and Johnson will speak later this month to agree and launch their ambitious plans for the future partnership between the UK and India. They will remain in regular contact beyond this, and look forward to meeting in person later this year.

As my colleague Nicola Davis reported last week, only 77 cases of the Indian variant of coronavirus, B1617, have been found in the UK so far. “It is designated a ‘variant under investigation’ but is worrying researchers as it contains two mutations that it is thought may help the virus to evade the body’s immune responses,” Nicola explained.

This morning Prof Danny Altmann, professor of immunology at Imperial College London, said he expected B1617 to be upgraded to a “variant of concern” quite soon. That would lead to India being placed on the “red list” for travel, he said (which would probably force Boris Johnson to cancel his trip due to start this weekend). Altmann told Good Morning Britain:

At the moment, this particular variant (from India) is called a variant under investigation, not a variant of concern because it hasn’t been escalated to that level yet.

My assumption from everything I’ve seen is that it will become a variant of concern. When it becomes a variant of concern, I’d be quite surprised if India wasn’t on the red list.

This variant has a couple of mutations that are among those that we think are important that should be watched carefully, but they’re actually probably not at the very kind of top tier of mutations, for example in the B117 - or Kent variant - or the South African variant, that generate the most concern.

And in terms of spread, clearly this variant has increased in frequency in India around the same time as their very large and tragic recent wave.

Leaders agree to vaccination rollout changes – as it happened
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 08:15:10 GMT

Fourth Perth hospital health worker goes into self-quarantine while scammers target people seeking vaccines. This blog is now closed

That is where we will leave the live blog for Monday. Thanks for following along. Here’s what we learned today:

The PM’s office has just released the statement out of the national cabinet meeting tonight. This is the bit on what was agreed to:

National cabinet agreed in-principle to a series of changes to the Australian Covid-19 vaccination strategy that will be put forward for approval at the next meeting of national cabinet, including options to bring forward the commencement of vaccinations for over-50-year-olds under the Australian Covid-19 vaccination strategy priority group 2A, and the readiness of more state- and territory-operated vaccination sites, including mass vaccination sites, as vaccine supplies increase.

National cabinet reinforced that general practice will continue to be the primary model of rolling out vaccinations for Australians over 50 years of age, with states and territories to consider options to supplement rollout through expanded state vaccination centres.

‘Respect the water’: RNLI lifeguard training in Cornwall
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 06:00:25 GMT

Ahead of a busy summer of domestic tourism in the UK, qualified lifeguards and trainees rehearse life-saving procedures

From a distance the ocean looks calm – safe, even – but a sticker peeling from a window in St Agnes lifeguard station offers a cautionary warning to all visitors: Respect the Water, it says.

The summer ahead promises to be busier than ever in Cornwall, with a boom in domestic tourism fuelled by global coronavirus restrictions. This beautiful but unforgiving stretch of coastline will see its fair share of rescues.

The RNLI is training new lifeguards in preparation. Today, a group of five are learning first aid skills and rehearsing water rescue techniques using tubes and rescue boards – they must wear PPE for close proximity drills, even in the water. The trainees range in age from 16 to 33 and include students, a gas engineer, a marine biologist and a former champion surfer.

With journeys to distant corners of the globe still on hold, our writers are gearing up to hike, climb, camp, and swim on home turf

When we were kids it was always UK holidays, usually under canvas, and always recalled with affection. I have no problem giving up foreign travel for a while, although I do miss the sheer scale and biodiversity of distant wildernesses and worry about the communities who invested hope, and effort, in tourism as a way of holding off the oilmen, gold prospectors and road diggers. I’m praying they hang on. We will return!

Astronaut selection: tips from Thomas
Fri, 16 Apr 2021 16:30:00 +0200
Video: 00:02:18

In 2008, Thomas Pesquet applied to become an ESA astronaut. On 22 April 2021, he will fly his second mission to the International Space Station. In this video Thomas shares how he found his way to space, and encourages viewers to follow their passions as ESA seeks its next class of astronauts.

Nobody is perfect on their first attempt at a task, but Thomas says the only way to improve is to try and keep trying. Though becoming an astronaut seemed a distant dream when he was younger, by continuing to challenge himself and learn along the way he developed the skills he needed to put himself forward and become one of a small group who have travelled to space.

Whatever your passion, his advice is universal: try your best, and if you don’t succeed it doesn’t matter. What does matter is perseverance.

That was originally due to announce plans for a new Champions League format based on the ‘Swiss’ model. Obviously it will be very different in tone now. As for what Uefa and the leagues will do, one prominent source tells me that ‘Uefa and all the leagues and other clubs are going to come out absolutely swinging,’ and predicts that political and public pressure will play its part. ‘It’ll die or change by the 1000 cuts approach,’ is his forecast.

Mon, 19 Apr 2021 07:17:36 GMT

Boris Johnson likely to announce proposal, including Official Secrets Act update, in Queen’s speech

Britain plans to force those working for foreign governments to sign a central register in an attempt to counter hostile spy activity, the Home Office has confirmed.

Boris Johnson, according to the Times, hopes to formally announce the proposal in the Queen’s speech next month, making it a criminal offence not to declare work in the UK on behalf of a foreign government.

My son serves his I-told-you-sos silent – which is very lucky for me | Zoe Williams
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 06:00:24 GMT

He told me my hopes would be dashed when we went in search of pure happiness in Ramsgate. Because while the pubs are now open, the arcades remain desolate

My stepmother, P, lives in Ramsgate, but has caring responsibilities up the wazoo elsewhere, so she hasn’t been in her house for a year. I’m here to check the plants haven’t died, but she knows that isn’t really why I’m here. It’s because I love it. The regular reader will recall that I’ve been barred from the Wetherspoon’s, the most magnificent pub in Europe, but I still love the town. The intensity of the skies, the smell of whelks, the harbour that thinks it’s so fancy (because it is), the neighbourliness – so colourful, so cheerful; every morning is like the establishing shot of a Disney musical – and, most of all, the arcades.

There’s been an awful role reversal in the family over lockdown – worse than TJ, the boy child, getting taller than me. He’s become the manager of my expectations. He spent the entire journey down here explaining why the arcades wouldn’t be open. “They’re not essential by anyone’s terms. Even if you were addicted to gambling, and the 2p machines were like your methadone, that still wouldn’t be essential.”

Compulsory worship of national symbols is the sure sign of a culture in decline | Nesrine Malik
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 05:00:23 GMT

Those who think our flags and statues must be protected from blasphemers have taken a step down a sinister road

Though we often hear that depictions of the prophet Muhammad are forbidden in Islam, artworks bearing his image can be found in museums in Europe and the United States. He is on a bronze medallion in the Tropenmuseum in Amsterdam, holding a book. He is in a Persian miniature in the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, ascending to the heavens on a horse. And he is in many carefully curated private collections of Islamic art, appearing from time to time in the catalogues of prestigious auction houses when these artworks change hands.

The prohibition of images of the prophet, no matter how anodyne, is widely accepted today – but, as these examples show, it is a distinctly modern edict. The religious justification for the ban is far less clear than its proponents believe: there is no such instruction in the Qur’an. There is, of course, a pre-Islamic aversion to idol worship shared by all the monotheistic religions, and over the centuries this aversion gradually wore away depictions of Muhammad in Islamic art. But this was only a prelude to the modern charge of blasphemy – which arrived only in the 20th century, after the Muslim world had fractured into nation-states.

The U.S. leads the world in cases and deaths by wide margins, with 31.5 million cases, or about 23% of the global total, while the 565,289 death toll makes up about 19% of the global toll. The U.S. added at least 74,312 new cases and 909 new deaths on Thursday, according to a New York Times tracker. The U.S. has averaged 70,514 cases a day in the past week, up 8% from the average two weeks ago. Pfizer Inc. Chief Executive Albert Bourla said it is likely that people who receive Covid-19 vaccines will need booster shots within a year afterward, and then annual vaccinations, to maintain protection against the virus as it evolves, the Wall Street Journal reported. "The variants will play a key role. It is extremely important to suppress the pool of people that can be susceptible to the virus," Bourla said during a virtual event hosted by CVS Health Corp. that aired Thursday but was recorded April 1. Outside of the U.S., India has replaced Brazil as the country with the second highest number of cases at 14.3 million, and is fourth globally by deaths at 174,308.

UK Covid news: Boris Johnson cancels trip to India because of Covid crisis there
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 08:51:42 GMT

Latest updates: PM’s forthcoming trip to India cancelled as country’s total cases reach 15m

Boris Johnson has cancelled his planned trip to India. No 10 has just released this joint statement from the British and Indian governments.

In the light of the current coronavirus situation, Prime Minister Boris Johnson will not be able to travel to India next week. Instead, Prime Ministers Modi and Johnson will speak later this month to agree and launch their ambitious plans for the future partnership between the UK and India. They will remain in regular contact beyond this, and look forward to meeting in person later this year.

As my colleague Nicola Davis reported last week, only 77 cases of the Indian variant of coronavirus, B1617, have been found in the UK so far. “It is designated a ‘variant under investigation’ but is worrying researchers as it contains two mutations that it is thought may help the virus to evade the body’s immune responses,” Nicola explained.

This morning Prof Danny Altmann, professor of immunology at Imperial College London, said he expected B1617 to be upgraded to a “variant of concern” quite soon. That would lead to India being placed on the “red list” for travel, he said (which would probably force Boris Johnson to cancel his trip due to start this weekend). Altmann told Good Morning Britain:

At the moment, this particular variant (from India) is called a variant under investigation, not a variant of concern because it hasn’t been escalated to that level yet.

My assumption from everything I’ve seen is that it will become a variant of concern. When it becomes a variant of concern, I’d be quite surprised if India wasn’t on the red list.

This variant has a couple of mutations that are among those that we think are important that should be watched carefully, but they’re actually probably not at the very kind of top tier of mutations, for example in the B117 - or Kent variant - or the South African variant, that generate the most concern.

And in terms of spread, clearly this variant has increased in frequency in India around the same time as their very large and tragic recent wave.

In the last census, completed a decade ago, 96% of respondents claimed they were Roman Catholic.

London, Burning by Anthony Quinn review – portrait of a divided country
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 08:00:26 GMT

Four strangers are united by the tensions of late 70s Britain in the latest of Quinn’s gratifying London novels

Set during the dog days of the Callaghan Labour government, Anthony Quinn’s latest period novel extends his richly pleasurable and loosely connected series portraying London down the decades. Since 2011, he has fused romance, mystery and social realism to produce a kind of epic Londoniad, tackling the city’s Victorian slums (The Streets), the first world war (Half of the Human Race), the 30s (Curtain Call), the blitz (Our Friends in Berlin), the 50s and 60s (Freya and Eureka), and now the late 70s, a time of strikes, IRA violence and the imminent election of Margaret Thatcher.

It’s David Peace territory, but Quinn is a steadier, suaver writer, relying on the old-school charms of rounded characters and a clockwork plot. Involving police corruption and showbiz hanky-panky, London, Burning brings together four strangers: Hannah, a go-getting reporter; Vicky, a newly promoted detective; Callum, an English lecturer from County Down; and Freddie, a married theatre director sleeping with a television star angling for the lead role in his new show. At the centre of it all is Thatcher’s shadow home secretary, Anthony Middleton, an ex-spy and former POW vowing to crush the unions and the IRA alike. A fictional version of Airey Neave, he also dies in a car bomb, but Quinn’s aim isn’t to recreate one of the IRA’s most notorious murders so much as use it as a catalyst for events that pull together his central quartet. A kneejerk arrest fuelled by anti-Irish bigotry is only the start, as the killing inspires a network of crooked cops running a drugs racket.

As well as taking a trip down memory lane, Quinn wants to explore how Labour voters were blindsided by Thatcher’s rise

From Russian YouTube to spinning on the spot: Hollywood’s tricks to playing drunk
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 08:00:26 GMT

Gone is the ‘do it for real’ approach – the stars of Mank and Another Round take a more sober approach to acting inebriated

Were there an Oscar for best on-screen drunk (which there really should be), it would be a close-run thing this year. My money would be on Aubrey Plaza, who provides a magnificent display of wastedness in her new movie, Black Bear. Playing a neurotic indie actor at the end of her tether, she spends half the movie stumbling, lurching, wailing and losing her dignity. She wasn’t actually drunk, of course. This is the great challenge: acting drunk when you’re sober is no easier than acting sober when you’re drunk. To get into the right frame of unsteadiness, Plaza would spin round until almost throwing up just before the scene. That’s commitment.

Fore! How golf fashion finally got in the swing
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 07:31:25 GMT

It has more dress codes than almost any other sport – and yet golfers are some of the worst dressed sportsmen on the planet. But now a group of high-profile amateurs are bringing streetwear to the 18th

When Hideki Matsuyama won the Masters earlier this month, he was handed a crisp green blazer with gold buttons to mark the achievement. Given that the sport’s highest honour is a rather jazzy bit of tailoring, it’s ironic that golf attire at a professional level is so achingly bland. And yet, it’s a different story at amateur level where a new wave of high-profile celebrity players and upstart brands are making golf sartorially interesting for the first time in decades – so much so that it’s starting to spill over from the fairway into real life. Norm- “FORE!” has arrived.

Neville and Beckham feel the heat as another United old boy hands Miami defeat
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 07:30:25 GMT

The former England women’s head coach made his debut in charge of Inter Miami on Sunday. But a familiar name came back to haunt him

For new Inter Miami coach Phil Neville, the holidays are over. The former England women’s coach, who midweek spoke fondly of annual family vacations on South Beach during his playing days, tasted defeat in his first game in MLS, as LA Galaxy came from behind twice to earn a late 3-2 win at DRV PNK Stadium.

With all the pre-match talk of the Manchester United reunion between Neville and team owner David Beckham, it was another Old Trafford old boy, Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernández, who spoiled the party with a pair of typically predatory finishes. The visitors sealed the points thanks to substitute Sacha Kljestan’s calm finish with nine minutes left.

Fear that Johnson & Johnson pause could heighten vaccine hesitancy in US
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 07:00:25 GMT

A deflating pattern is emerging in rural, conservative and vaccine-hesitant states as authorities worry that stakes could not be higher in those same communities

Teton county, Wyoming, is at the vanguard of America’s Covid-19 vaccination campaign – but it isn’t celebrating.

The county has vaccinated far more people proportionally than in most of America – 39% – compared to less than a quarter nationally. Local authorities are concerned they may have hit a saturation point. Vast, rural and conservative Wyoming is one of the most vaccine hesitant places in the nation, and fewer people are signing up for vaccine clinics. Similar patterns are emerging across the US.

FA Cup, Premier League, EFL and Old Firm game: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 07:00:25 GMT

Rodgers reaches his first English final, Spurs wait on Harry Kane’s ankle and Norwich make a welcome return

Brendan Rodgers’ previous FA Cup semi-final visit, in April 2015, ended in disaster, a deserved 2-1 loss with Liverpool to an Aston Villa team inspired by a teenage Jack Grealish. That was an afternoon when Liverpool froze but six years on, Rodgers is a manager with considerably more chops. His Leicester team approached their Sunday night visit to Wembley with poise, confidence and patience. On the sidelines, and even above the 4,000 fans in the stadium as part of a post-Covid experiment, Rodgers’s baritone was audible, talking his players through each passage of play. His suit is always reassuringly expensive but Rodgers remains a tracksuit manager, someone who mucks in with his players on the training field, and the revival of Kelechi Iheanacho, the winning goalscorer, is another example of his ability to improve talent. And a first final in English football is a mark of Rodgers’ continued growth as a manager. John Brewin

Audiences who hit play on Joshua Rofé’s new documentary miniseries Sasquatch in the expectation that someone’s finally gotten some straight answers about that elusive hirsute bastard will be sorely disappointed. “I wasn’t hung up on whether I believe in Bigfoot or whether I buy the details of this story. All of that became secondary and fell by the wayside,” Rofé tells the Guardian via Zoom. “I was struck by the visceral fear present in all these encounter stories. I was taken by how afraid these people were, which was totally authentic.”

Is the ‘new muon’ really a great scientific discovery? For now, I’m cautious | Carlo Rovelli
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 06:00:25 GMT

Physicists are always looking for eureka moments – but we should be careful with headline-grabbing announcements

There is something curious about the great experiments and discoveries in fundamental physics from the past few decades. They have covered black holes, gravitational waves, the Higgs particle and quantum entanglement. They have led to Nobel prizes, reached the front pages of newspapers and made the scientific community proud. But they haven’t told us anything new: they have confirmed what we expected about the world. All these phenomena were in the university textbooks I studied almost half a century ago. Their existence was predicted by our best established theories. I do not mean to diminish the awe. On the contrary. It is amazing that the phenomena were observed, and even more amazing that they were figured out before we could see them. Their detection is a celebration of the power of scientific thinking to see into the unseen. Yet a malignant voice could have whispered in our ears at each step: “What’s the great surprise? We expected this.” Fundamental experimental physics has long been, in this sense, quite conservative. It has simply been confirming the best theories of last century over and over again.

Last week findings from Fermilab, the US’s particle physics and accelerator laboratory, appeared to contradict what we thought to be the case. The laboratory announced a new measurement of the “magnetic moment” of the muon – one of the universe’s elementary particles, a heavier brother of the electron. The measured value of the muon seems to disagree with the value predicted by the theory. It is an observation that does not complement our established theories; it clashes with them.

The Great British Art Tour: Chagall leaves his dreams for a living nightmare
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 05:00:24 GMT

With public art collections closed we are bringing the art to you, exploring highlights from across the country in partnership with Art UK. Today’s pick: Apocalypse en Lilas, Capriccio by Marc Chagall, in London’s Ben Uri gallery.

This gouache, ink and pencil study in lilac and grey was executed in April 1945 by Marc Chagall after almost four years in exile in New York. He had fled to the US after the Nazi occupation of France during the second world war. Born into a Hasidic Jewish family in Vitebsk, Russia (now in Belarus), in 1887, Chagall arrived in Paris in 1910 and became a celebrated artist of the École de Paris, best known for his dreamlike paintings combining aspects of French tradition with Russian folklore and Jewish motifs. In 1923, he and his wife Bella became naturalised French citizens.

This was probably the first work that Chagall produced after coming out of mourning for Bella, who had died suddenly in September 1944 after almost 30 years of marriage. It was created in response to seeing the horrors of the concentration camps revealed through newspapers and Pathé newsreels. His pencil titles in Cyrillic (upper right) translate as “Apocalypse” and “Capriccio” (fantasy), and his biographer Jackie Wullschläger has described it as “the bleakest of Chagall’s many crucifixions”: combining symbolism with realism and incorporating factual information about the Holocaust for the first time.

Leaving Afghanistan: the west has lessons to learn | Letters
Sun, 18 Apr 2021 16:51:56 GMT

As troops prepare to withdraw from the war-torn country, readers reflect on western nations’ involvement and legacy

Your editorial (15 April) asserts that the Taliban were quick to take over when the Russians left. That is simply not true; it actually took seven years, from the end of Soviet combat operations in 1989 to the capture of Kabul by the Taliban in 1996. The crucial event was the withdrawal of Russian subsidies to the Najibullah regime in 1992.

It took a further two years for that regime to collapse, and two years more of chaos and intra-mujahideen fighting to create the void into which the Taliban stepped. This all matters because there was nothing inevitable about the Taliban’s takeover in 1996 and neither is there now.

In response to Polly Toynbee’s article (Cameron passed a lobbying act, but it was never meant to curb corruption, 15 April), as a Liberal Democrat minister in coalition, I was involved in drawing up the Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Act 2014. At no point did I, or any of my colleagues, ever discuss introducing measures designed to target the National Union of Students because we “lived in terror” of it.

What we did discuss was the risk of groups similar to the US National Rifle Association emerging as major players in UK politics. These organisations support a preferred candidate by viciously targeting their main opponent, but because they act “independently”, their spending does not count against their favoured candidate’s election spending limit.

The view from Bank Top: Craig Easton’s images of life in Blackburn
Sun, 18 Apr 2021 11:00:01 GMT

Craig Easton, Sony World Photography awards’ photographer of the year 2021, challenges misconceptions and explores ideas of community with his images of life in Blackburn

Craig Easton rarely tells the subjects of his photographs how they should pose. “I feel that my portraits are gifts that are given to me by those I choose to take pictures of,” he says. Take Mohammed Afzal, an abattoir worker with a passion for pigeons: “I’d seen the loft at the back of his house, and I’d knocked on his door to ask if I could photograph him. The fifth or sixth time we made an arrangement to do this – I kept turning up, but he was always out – he’d just got home, and he was still in his work kit. I thought to myself: this is great. But who am I to say how he should look? He wanted to get showered and changed, and in the end I was pleased that I didn’t impose myself on him. It’s his picture, and he looks just as fabulous in his pristine tracksuit top and jeans.”

Afzal appears in Bank Top, a series of photographs taken by Easton in Blackburn in 2019 and 2020: images that, in turn, were originally part of Kick Down the Barriers, a project instigated by Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery to challenge popular misconceptions of the town. “Kick Down the Barriers was a response to a Panorama programme that asked if Blackburn is the most segregated place in the country,” says Easton. “People were pretty upset – it was so simplistic – and a series of artists were invited to look more closely at its communities.”

Affirm stock could head higher amid 'hypergrowth' of buy-now-pay-later offerings, analyst says in upgrade
Fri, 16 Apr 2021 12:27:01 GMT

Shares of Affirm Holdings Inc. are up 2% in premarket trading Friday after Seaport Global analyst Chris Brendler upgraded the stock to buy from neutral and set an $80 price target. He sees the stock as more attractive following a 34% selloff since he initiated coverage of the company 10 weeks back, whereas the S&P 500 has gained 7% in that time. "In our view, this underperformance comes despite increasing evidence that BNPL [buy-now-pay-later] is going to be huge in the US and based on a string of encouraging data points, we expect Affirm to materially exceed near-term expectations," Brendler wrote in a note to clients. The company offers financial options that let consumers pay in installments, and this trend seems to be reaching a "hyper growth adoption phase in the U.S.," Brendler continued, which could set Affirm up for success. "We also want to be in front of Affirm's Shopify partnership which has the potential to significantly accelerate Affirm's growth," he wrote. "Recent data suggests the wait is nearly over, and we expect management to provide an update on the upcoming earnings call."

Eli Lilly asks FDA to revoke EUA for COVID antibody treatment alone to speed transition to combination therapy
Fri, 16 Apr 2021 10:48:03 GMT

Eli Lilly and Co. said Friday it is seeking a revocation of the emergency use authorization granted by U.S. regulators for its bamlanivimab antibody treatment for COVID-19 alone in order to complete the transition to bamlanivimab and etesevimab together. "Lilly made this request due to the evolving variant landscape in the U.S. and the full availability of bamlanivimab and etesevimab together," the company said in a statement. The combination has proved to be more effective in neutralizing the COVID-19 variants that have been detected in the U.S. after first emerging in the U.K., South Africa and Brazil, and that are more infectious than the original virus. The combination is also better at treating the rapidly growing B.1.427/B.1.429 California strain that currently accounts for 50% of virus cases in California and over 10% of cases in other states. "In the U.S., bamlanivimab alone should no longer be administered. However, sites of care should not dispose of bamlanivimab supply; instead, they should order etesevimab to pair with it," said Lilly. Bamlanivimab was the first neutralizing monoclonal antibody to receive an EUA from the FDA as a treatment for mild to moderate COVID-19 and more than 400,000 patients have been given it. Lilly estimates that has prevented more than 20,000 hospitalizations and at least 10,000 deaths during the peak of pandemic cases. Lily expects that in collaboration with Amgen Inc. , it can manufacture sufficient supply of the two antibodies to meet global supply needs. Lilly shares were up 0.6% premarket, and have gained 10% in the year-to-date, matching the S&P 500's gains.

Biomea Fusion's upsized IPO prices at top of expected range, to value the biotech at $464 million
Fri, 16 Apr 2021 10:10:41 GMT

Biomea Fusion Inc. was set to go public Friday, as the California-based biopharmaceutical company focused on treatment of genetically defined cancers said its upsized initial public offering priced at $17 a share, at the high end of the expected range of between $15 and $17 a share. The company said late Thursday that it offered 9.0 million shares in the IPO, up from previous expectations of 7.5 million shares, to raise $153 million. At the IPO pricing, Biomea was valued at $463.6 million. The stock is expected to trade on the Nasdaq under the ticker symbol "BMEA." J.P. Morgan, Jefferies and Piper Sandler are book-running managers. The company recorded a net loss of $5.3 million on no revenue in 2020 after a loss of $1.2 million on no revenue in 2019. The company is going public at a time of tempered investor demand for IPOs, as the Renaissance IPO ETF has lost 3.6% over the past three months while the S&P 500 has gained 10.7%.

Merck scraps two treatments for hospitalized COVID-19 patients, will focus on antiviral for non-hospitalized patients

Shares of Merck & Co. were up 0.1% in premarket trading on Thursday after the drug company said the oral antiviral COVID-19 treatment it is developing with Ridgeback Biotherapeutics did not help hospitalized patients in a mid-stage clinical trial. The companies now plan to test molnupiravir in non-hospitalized COVID-19 patients in a Phase 3 trial, with plans to file for emergency authorization in the second half of the year. They are also planning to see if the experimental therapy works for post-exposure prophylaxis. In a separate news release, Merck said it is discontinuing MK-7110 as a treatment for patients hospitalized with COVID-19, saying that the Food and Drug Administration's request for additional clinical information would push the launch into 2022. "Merck is now focusing its efforts on advancing molnupiravir, which, as an oral medicine for outpatient use, represents a promising potential new approach, and on accelerating production of Johnson & Johnson's COVID-19 vaccine," Dr. Roy Baynes, chief medical officer for Merck Research Laboratories, said in the release. Merck's stock has gained 6.6% since the start of the year, while the broader S&P 500 is up 9.8%.

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.

Space vs. materials – orbital testing outside Space Station
Thu, 25 Mar 2021 13:00:00 +0100
Pitted, cracked surface from MEDET

Space leaves its mark on materials: exposure to such a harsh environment can darken, crack or crater their surfaces – or even erode them away entirely. The nothingness of hard vacuum can also provoke ‘outgassing’ vapours from materials that might degrade delicate mission systems. Accordingly ESA and the French space agency CNES are giving European researchers the chance to pit the latest aerospace materials directly against space.
