The European Medicines Agency has begun testing the Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine in Russia after it was first approved for use in Russia and approved by dozens of countries around the world.

Despite skepticism about the hasty introduction of the vaccine in Russia before the final trials were completed, the vaccine appears to be safe and effective. According to a study published in the journal Lancet last month, Sputnik V is 91% effective in preventing severe vaccination of people vaccinated with COVID-19, although it is not yet clear if the vaccine can prevent the spread of the disease.

Due to the global shortage of COVID-19 vaccines, some experts say that by promoting the use of vaccines made in China and Russia, which are not as popular as those made by Western companies, they may offer a faster way to increase global supply. T:

The EMA has so far approved three COVID-19 vaccines for use in 27 EU countries. Pictures by Pfizer-BioNtech, Moderna և AstraZeneca. It may patent the fourth picture taken by son onson և by onsons next Thursday at an expert meeting.

Car crashes in the United States are on the rise, even as the epidemic travels miles

An Oregon man crashed into a Tesla while traveling about 100 miles in Corvalis in October, destroying a car, a power pole, setting it on fire when several of the car's hundreds of batteries shattered windows and landing in a residential area.  In 2020, epidemic blockades և house arrest orders kept many drivers on US roads and highways.  But those who got out of there found open lanes that only invited them to drive recklessly, which led to a sharp rise in road accident victims across the country.

Last year, epidemic blockades, house arrest orders kept many drivers on US roads and highways. But those who took part in the operation found open zones that only invited reckless driving, leading to a sharp rise in road deaths across the country.

The National Trade Security Council said in a report released on Thursday that 42,060 people were killed in car crashes in 2020, up 8% from 2019, the first flight in four years.

In addition, the mortality rate increased by 24% over a distance of 100 million miles, the largest annual increase since the council began collecting data in 1923.

And although traffic is now approaching pre-coronavirus levels, poor road behavior continues, authorities say.

“It’s kind of scary what they saw on our roads,” said Michael Hanson, director of the Minnesota Department of Public Safety’s Office of Traffic Safety. “We are seeing a huge increase in risky behaviors.”

Last year’s death toll was the highest since 2007, when 43,945 people were killed in car crashes.

Teachers and childcare workers are in a frenzy for vaccines because local schools are inches open. To what extent will their new jurisdiction accelerate the reopening? Finding a shot is still “terribly difficult” – it is not the only severity. (Here is our guide to finding your vaccine.) At the same time, the vaccination schedule for children is getting a little clearer.

More than 5,000 people have died of COVID-19 in Washington. Each one was more than a number, but the numbers say that when you look at this death chart broken down by age, gender, race: ethnicity և location. The series “Our lives are remembered” tells the story of some of those we lost.

When can we stop wearing masks? Certainly not yet, President Joe Biden said when he strongly criticized the “Neanderthal thinking” of two governors who suddenly applied the rules of their states. The right time to put masks in Dr. Anthony Fauci’s eyes may not come for another year.

“Big smiles that shine through their thick masks.” Readers of Rant & Rave enjoyed vaccine workers.
