Anyone entering Canada internationally (which only 4 cities are allowing) must now take a mandatory test and must quarantine. (Those multiple days in a hotel will add up, and that cost is the idea) https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/trudeau-announces-new-restrictions-on-international-travel-to-canada/ar-BB1ddw03

Melbourne announced a 5 days lockdown.

Problem is: the tickets for the Australian Open were already sold.
And the crowd is packing up Rod Laver Arena to watch Thiem vs Kyrgios (starts in minutes).

Update from Argentina:

After been extended until January 31st., the DISPO has a new extension until February 28th. As the number of cases is apparently decreasing again, some measurements taken in December might cease.

Also, classes in schools in the city of Buenos Aires started last Wednesday in small groups and following a strict protocol. In the rest of the jurisdictions will start on March in the same conditions.

The FDA has announced that the Johnson &Johnson COVID-19 vaccine,which only requires a single dose, and has far fewer storage requirements has demonstrated the requirements for an emergency use authorization in the US. The US CDCP is expected to issue that authorization this week. Supplies of this vaccine are expected to begin delivery next week.

A preliminary study is expected to be published this week, that a variant of the COVID-19 virus first found in California last year, now appears to have rapidly spread  in California and is reported more easily transmitted and cause more severe or fatal cases than other variants currently being seen globally. It’s not clear yet how effective available Covid-19 vaccines are against this particular variant.

In addition to the variant of concern found in California, a second variant of concern has now been reported from New York City.

In the reports of two prepublication studies identifying these two new emerging variants (in California and in New York), where current vaccines may not be fully effective, are said to be highly transmittable, and may cause more severe cases. These instances are not isolated given the emergence of variants that have raised similar concerns elsewhere in South Africa, Braziland the UK.

Pilfer is reported researching the possibility of a booster dose to address these new variants of concern.

Update from Argentina:

The Gamaleya National Center and the Russian Direct Investment Fund have reached a preliminary agreement with the Richmond Laboratory of Argentina to start producing the Sputnik V vaccine. As they have to built a complete new facility to this, is estimated that in no longer than one year the first dosis will be completely produced in the country. Also, this same place will provide dosis to the rest of the countries in the continent that are using that vaccine.

Also, almost one million dosis of the chinese vaccine Sinopharm have arrived to the country to continue with the vaccination plan.

An important milestone is in sight for the United States:

President Biden stated today that there will be a sufficient supply of the three US approved vaccines to vaccinate all adults in the US by the end of May. He’s also directing that teachers should have a priority in receiving vaccination. All of this is being made possible by the agreement by Merck Laboratories to manufacture dosages of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.
Still to be determined is the use of the vaccine for those under age 18.
