Saturday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here.

Thanks so much for everyone who contributed yesterday, if you have no idea what I'm on about here's another sneaky link to my crowdfunder!

It's a quite start today following the flurry of news last night..

So a lot of data and a couple of new stories came in during the last hour or so of Friday, including South America data.

You can catch up on #Argentina #Brazil #Colombia #Bulgaria #Norway stats, and some #OlympicGames news by clicking and scrolling ⬇️

Now more very concerning news from #Bahrain, one of the most vaccinated territories on the planet.

#Covid19 cases are still rising there - more worrying is the real increase in deaths too.

Finally, here is Friday's #Coronavirus megathread

🚦review imminent, I'm getting a lot of questions.
I reply to everyone but it's so time consuming
I'm now working on 7-day rates for EVERY Greek island.

No obligation but if my efforts are worth £1, thx

crowdfunder.co.uk/covid19-travel…
I'll continue to post free advice and data, so nothing will be hidden from anyone, so please don't be angry or upset! And yes you can still ask questions!

So the big news in UK today is that the single shot Jansen (J&J) #Covid19 vaccine has been approved

The big #Covid19 data news overnight is that #Argentina smashed its own record again, topping 40,000 cases in a day for the first time.

41,080 new cases to be precise, up around 15% on last week's total.

About four or five years ago I traveled on assignment to the Azores, a volcanic archipelago off the coast of Portugal, and purchased a clay cooking pot in San Miguel. I finally decided it’s time to use it, so today I’ll be documenting the process for how to season it.
I’ve never actually seasoned an unglazed clay pot from scratch before and am figuring this out using advice from the internet and @davidleite. The first step is to immerse it in water for several hours. #claypot #cooking #cookware
A correction: this pot is actually from the Azorean island of Terceira. It was made by Olaria de S. Bento who I was told is one of very few people still producing pots like this by hand. #azores #claypot #terceira tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Rev…

Now online—hard-hitting arguments + many data points, some deeply-analyzed yet hard to find elsewhere in public domain:
