Covid-19: What you need to know today

Life is almost back to normal after the coronavirus pandemic in the global north.

Following the example of the UK, the US and many other countries, have even given those over the age of 50 years a third shot of the Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna vaccine.

Economies are growing; it isn't quite like the roaring twenties that followed the Spanish Flu (and preceded the Great Depression), but things are definitely looking up.

There are still stray, minor outbreaks caused on account of the anti-vaxxers (who have no protection against the disease other than what they get on account of herd immunity, which has been achieved thanks to the widespread vaccination) and the rare mutant strain, but because most vaccines offer protection from serious illness, none of these is serious enough to warrant the closure of anything.
