India only spent 2 nights in the 23m+ clubhouse dragging themselves through the front doors of the 24m+ clubhouse and through the cobwebs and dust only to collapse in exhaustion before reaching the bar (according to witnesses' reports that's where they stayed until dawn), but their neighbours are certainly feeling the effects.

The Seychelles (currently in 156th place on the case list, pop.<99,000), at this moment transversing the void of space between the Benin and South Sudan systems, is throwing up some disturbing results.

The Seychelles is the most vaccinated nation on Earth. But Covid has surged.

The Seychelles is viewed as having conducted a very successful vaccination rollout so far; it can boast having the highest share of people vaccinated against Covid-19 anywhere in the world, above Israel and the U.K.

The majority of vaccinated people have received China's Sinopharm vaccine (approved for emergency use by the WHO last Friday) as well as the AstraZeneca shot (known as Covishield locally, a version produced in India). In total, the Seychelles with a population of over 97,000 has recorded just under 8,200 cases and 28 deaths during the pandemic.
Numbers have now passed 9,100 cases and now 32 deaths.

While in the Maldives (currently in 112th place on the case list, pop.<549,000) has finally taken some action to slow their run up the list.

Maldives travel ban: The Bollywood bolthole during India's second Covid wave now shuts out wealthy Indians.

The atoll nation's Ministry of Tourism and immigration authority announced the temporary ban on Tuesday, which applies to all visa holders from India, Nepal, Bhutan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, as well as people who have transited those countries in the past 14 days.

The ban, effective Thursday, will be in place until further notice as Maldives tries to control a surge in coronavirus cases, which jumped from around 100 new cases in mid-April to 1,572 on Wednesday.

That's the highest number of daily new cases in the country since the start of the pandemic, according to the Health Protection Agency. And it comes amid a rise in new cases across the region, particularly in India, where a second wave is killing thousands of people every day.
Currently they have recorded 41,300 infections and 87 deaths.

Meanwhile in the U.S. (where the state of Trumpsville leads the way in the daily case count race, they use to call it Florida), those stupid conspiracy theorist republicans continue to send the wrong messages. :-(

Just 45% of House Republicans say they've been vaccinated while 100% of congressional Democrats say they've gotten the shot.

Every single Democratic lawmaker in the House and Senate says they've received a COVID-19 vaccine, according to a new CNN survey. Things are quite different on the other side of the aisle.

Just 45% of House Republicans say they've been vaccinated. A much higher percentage of Republicans in the upper chamber say they've received vaccinations, but four GOP senators either said they won't get the shot or wouldn't reveal the information.

Overall, about 72% of House lawmakers say they've been vaccinated - 312 of the 431 members. Ninety-five GOP House members told CNN they've gotten the shot, 112 didn't respond to multiple inquiries, and five members confirmed they haven't been vaccinated or didn't want to reveal whether they had.

The world's case tally has now passed 163.1 million while deaths have passed 3,383,800. :-(

The only change at the top end of the death list was Colombia replacing Spain in 10th spot while passing 80,000.

Now on the case list, Vietnam passed Guinea-Bissau before Timor-Leste came along to pass both as well as Eritrea, Comoros and Barbados, Vietnam then passed those 3 to claim 173rd place while Timor-Leste then passed the Channel Islands and Sierra Leone to claim 170th. Suriname leapt past the Congo, Djibouti, Martinique and Hong Kong to land in 147th while P.N.G. flew over Curaçao, Belize, Togo, Tajikistan, Haiti, Burkina Faso and Andorra to come down in 139th as Cambodia disposed of Mayotte and French Guiana to take over 128th and Angola replaced Australia in 120th.

The D.R.C. has taken 118th spot from Malta, the Maldives has dived past Zimbabwe, Madagascar, Senegal and Uganda to claim 111th as Mongolia overtook the Ivory Coast and Jamaica to move into 108th, Cyprus took 101st from Mozambique while Thailand took a long distant flight over Finland, China, Zambia, Ghana, Uzbekistan and Montenegro to land in 92nd, Latvia displaced Estonia from 86th and Sri Lanka replaced Albania in 83rd.

Venezuela took 73rd place from Qatar, Costa Rica claimed 60th from the Dominican Republic while Paraguay kicked Palestine out of 57th, Bolivia overtook Tunisia, Azerbaijan and Georgia to take over 53rd as Kazakhstan replaced Croatia in 51st, Greece jumped past Panama and Belarus into 48th, Nepal raced past both Bulgaria and Saudi Arabia into 43rd and the Philippines has deposed of Iraq to claim 24th spot.

Well that's it for this update.

"If this all works, and everyone comes together, vaccine passports will be a very, very simple way of us travelling without documents around the world."
Yeah right.
The way the EU is operating at the moment, I think Brexit would interfere with that idea!
Vaccine passports on the way?

After spending 4 nights recovering from their hectic pace in the 24m+ case clubhouse India got started on cleaning out almost 4 months of cobwebs and dust from the 25m+ case clubhouse today while they've just recorded a daily death count that has put them into 2nd place there and the U.S. yesterday had the grand opening of their 600,000+ death clubhouse.

Bahrain was the 77th member of the 200K+ case club while Thailand became the 92nd member of the 100K+ case club.

Vietnam seems to have taken being passed by Timor-Leste as an affront as they're now trying to run them down, currently Timor-Leste has made it up to 168th place with Vietnam now right behind them in 169th as both power on through the 4K+ case clubhouse.

Meanwhile down in Sydney there's still been no sign of their "missing link" so restrictions down there have now been eased again, but there is some promising news from just over our northern border.

Qld based team develop antiviral treatment that could reduce virus by 99.99 per cent.

A team of Queensland scientists has co-developed a “gene-silencing” antiviral treatment that could effectively kill COVID-19, in what’s been dubbed an “important missing piece” in the arsenal against the virus.

Nigel McMillan and his team from the Menzies Health Institute at Griffith University, alongside scientists from City of Hope research centre in the US, say the “next-generation” antiviral approach could stop the virus from replicating in the lungs.

Professor McMillan said stage one clinical trials revealed the antiviral treatment reduced the viral load in mice lungs by 99.99 per cent.

No surprise there. If one can lie about the election being stolen, there should be no problems to lie about being vaccinated.
Fear of demographics change seems to be all that's needed to throw truth, democracy, decency, and normal behaviour to he**

Edit: If there's going to be more of "them", than of "us", then we have no longer any interest in democracy.

And so, the U.S experiment failed, and ended......

I just spotted that France is planning on opening up bars etc. With their daily case rates at about 10 times that of the UK (20k vs. 2k per day), and similar population size (65 millionish), I can't see that going too well for the shape of their curve, but let's hope I'm wrong

Maybe they just want to move onto the 6m+ case clubhouse before Russia enters the 5m+ case clubhouse?

Did you also notice that India claimed the title of the most daily deaths recorded from the U.S.? :-O

Sadly, yes.
But given the population of India is three or four times that of the USA it's a sad indictment of the USA :-(

Is it a sad indictment of the USA, or an indication that the Indian counts are far below the expected level.
The per capita number of deaths in the US and a lot of countries, including most of Europe, is somewhere between one and two thousand per million. And where the spread in part can be because each country uses different criteria to judge whether a death is covid related.
The U.S.A is not at the top of that list, but it could be higher or lower if a Federal standard were used, because each State has its own definition

The Indian per capita number is only about 200 per million, probably about a tenth of the expected number.

If the Indian numbers are correct then India shouldn't be the focus of attention as other countries have higher weekly trends, mainly in South America.

Weekly trends can be seen at the worldometers covid site.
