New Delhi: Six different COVID-19 boosters are safe and elicit strong immune response in people who have previously received a two-dose course of AstraZeneca or Pfizer vaccines, according to a study published in The Lancet journal. Two doses of AstraZeneca and Pfizer vaccines have shown 79 per cent and 90 per cent protection, respectively, against hospitalisation and death after six months in several studies, the researchers said. However, protection against COVID-19 infection wanes over time, which has driven consideration of boosters to protect the most vulnerable and lessen pressure on health services. The latest study looked at safety, immune response and side-effects of seven vaccines when used as a third booster jab. The vaccines studied were AstraZeneca, Pfizer-BioNTech, Novavax, Janssen, Moderna, Valneva, and Curevac. "The side effect data show all seven vaccines a.....
Manila: World Health Organisation officials in the Western Pacific say border closures adopted by some countries may buy time to deal with the omicron coronavirus variant, but measures put in place and experience gained in dealing with the delta variant should remain the foundation for fighting the pandemic. While a few regional countries are facing surges, COVID-19 cases and deaths in many others have decreased and plateaued, WHO Regional Director for the Western Pacific Dr. Takeshi Kasai told reporters Friday in a virtual news conference broadcast from Manila, Philippines. Border control can delay the virus coming in and buy time. But every country and every community must prepare for new surges in cases," Kasai said. The positive news in all of this is that none of the information we have currently about omicron suggests we need to change the directions of our response." Much.....

New Delhi: India’s GDP growth slowed to 8.4% in the second quarter of 2021-22, mainly due to the waning low base effect but the economy has surpassed the pre-pandemic level, official data showed on Tuesday. The GDP growth in the April-June quarter of this fiscal stood at 20.1%. The Indian economy had contracted by 24.4% in April-June last year.

In a world-leading move, the Morrison Government will introduce new court powers to force global social media giants to unmask anonymous online trolls and better protect Australians online. The reforms will be some of the strongest powers in the world when it comes to tackling damaging comments from anonymous online trolls and holding global social media giants to account. The reforms will ensure social media companies are considered publishers and can be held liable for defamatory comments posted on their platforms. They can avoid this liability if they provide information that ensures a victim can identify and commence defamation proceedings against the troll. Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the rules that exist in the real world should exist online too. “Social media can too often be a cowards’ palace, where the anonymous can bully, harass and ruin lives without con.....
