1. Saisonnalité de l'épidémie dans les îles avec >95% d'adultes vaccinés
❄️Hémisphère Nord : Islande
☀️Hémisphère Sud : Nouvelle-Zélande
🌴Zone équatoriale : Brunei
Nette, non ? ImageImageImage
2. A noter que l'échelle des décès est logarithmique et donc qu'on a dans chacun de ces pays une croissance exponentielle :
Doublement du nombre de décès toutes les 3 à 5 semaines😨
3. We beg you, #Iceland #Íslands :
Time to play #whistleblower as you did with finance!
Nous avons besoin de lanceurs d'alerte !

🆕 ✨According to a new @theLancet study on excess deaths, IHME’s Haley Comfort, Spencer Pease, & Stefanie Watson discuss there were 18 MILLION #ExcessDeaths due to the pandemic in 2020 & 2021. Read their post about the study in @ThinkGlobalHlth…
💡What are #ExcessDeaths? It’s a measure comparing the trends of deaths in previous years vs. deaths during the #COVID19 pandemic. The abnormal spike in deaths during 2020 and 2021 → excess deaths
Deaths ⬆️ than expected: #India, #US, #Russia, #Mexico, #Brazil, #Indonesia, #Pakistan accounted for over half the world’s 18mil excess deaths, partially due to population size

Des nouvelles sur le Front de la #COVID19 ⬇️
#Denmark vacciné à 82%, 99% des adultes, 62% de 3eme dose et pourtant le nombre de morts continue à exploser
Pire, alors le nombre de cas s'effondre, le nombre de décès atteint les sommets Image
#Iceland : malgré 79% de vaccinés, 99% chez les adultes, 70% de 3ème dose, le nombre de décès n'a jamais été aussi élevé...
Rappelons que l'Islande gérait très bien la #COVID19 avant la vaccination avec très peu de décès...
#LesVaccinsSontTotalementInefficaces Image
#SouthKorea, c'est la cata : l'un des pays les plus vacciné au monde, à 87%, 99,9% des adultes injectés, donc ici pas question de #NonVaccinés : il y a 6 fois plus de morts après vaccination qu'avant.

Here is the #Covid19 round up for Wednesday. All the facts which matter in one handy thread.

Starting with the recently published #UK figures which show a surprisingly large fall in cases, bucking the recent trend of smaller reductions...
Wednesday is usually the day with the highest newly reported #Covid19 cases in the #UK, but numbers are down today, indeed by 27%.

However, I believe it's probably a blip and we may see higher numbers tomorrow and/or Friday.

But Covid deaths continue to fall. From 199 to 164
Looking at new #Covid19 cases by country within the #UK, good to see Scotland falling again.

#England 29,703 (-30.5%)
#NIreland 2,294 (-20.6%)
#Scotland 6,756 (-9.3%)
#Wales 903(-19.7%)

Tuesday's #Covid19 thread starts here. The arguments still raging in the #UK about "Living with Covid" following the announcement from the govt. that infected people no need to isolate from Thursday.

All the important data and news updated in this thread throughout the day
However I am commentating on tennis again today; 3 matches, long day.

I do try to reply all your queries but @SimonCalder here answers many that I'm repeatedly asked, using his judgement on the regular Q "when will xxxxland drop testing requirements?"…
#UK's figures today show another slowdown in the falling numbers with only 6.6% fewer new #Covid19 cases than at this time last week.

And big differences in the different countries:
#England 30,080 (-17.5%)
#NIreland 2,951 (-1.2%)
#Scotland 6,427 (+10.7%)
#Wales 1,672 (+81%)

Another very late start for the daily #Covid19 thread.
I have been keeping an eye on things in among my tennis commentary from the Qatar Open tennis.
The only story in the #UK is confirmation of an end to self isolation requirement from Thursday.

Free testing will end on 1 April
#Covid19 cases in Scotland are UP today while the slowing of falling numbers continues in the rest of the #UK

The nationwide fall is only 7.8% with 38,409 registered new infections.

#England 29,753 (-6.9%)
#NIreland 2,235 (-9.3%)
#Scotland 5,307 (+3.7%)
#Wales 1,114 (-47%)
The rest of the day's #Covid19 stats of interest later. Need to get home, eat, follow Ukraine story.
My friends and colleagues there are getting very nervous now.

France, 92% des + de 12 ans vaccinés, autant d'hospitalisations que lors de la 2ème vague sans vaccin
Réservoir épidémiques de #NonVaccinés 4 fois + petit. Si les vaccins étaient efficaces contre les formes graves, on devrait en voir bcp moins
#Danemark, avec 95% des plus de 12 ans vaccinés, il n'y a jamais eu autant de monde à l'hôpital pour #Covid_19. Ils ont même 1,5 fois plus de personnes hospitalisées que lors de la pire vague sans vaccin !
#Iceland, c'est pareil : lors de la pire vague, on comptait 54 hospitalisations hebdo, on en compte 42 aujourd'hui avec 80% des + de 5 ans vaccinés et + de 95% des plus de 50 ans, dont 80% avec 3 doses. Une baisse de 23%, pour un réservoir de #NonVaccinés qui a été divisé par 10

Ever look at global #earthquakes from the top down? The #NorthAmericanPlate and #EurasianPlate seem simple around the Atlantic - they're pulling apart - but if you follow that boundary across the pole to Russia, it gets weird and diffuse. 🧵1/4

#tectoplot Image
#Iceland provides a remarkable view of the plate boundary. Here, the plates are pulling apart over a #hotspot, so the spreading center is on land instead of at the bottom of the sea.

And just look at the result! Pictured here: #LakeThingvallavatn. 2/4… Image
But follow that plate boundary past the pole and under the ice, and you find yourself in Russia. Suddenly the #earthquakes are scattered and the plate boundaries poorly defined.

There's actually a whole extra baby plate here - the #OkhotskPlate. 3/4… Image

En science, les résultats doivent être reproductibles par n'importe qui, n'importe où, pour être validés
Il suffit d'un résultat différent pour que l'hypothèse, ici les vaccins sont efficaces contre les formes graves, soit invalidée…

Wednesday's #Covid19 megathread makes an early start as there's so much news to bring you!

#Omicron takes centre stage in Europe with a raft of records (recap coming up), but #UK ministers are increasingly confident the NHS won't be swamped despite England's lack of restrictions
It turned out to be a terrible Tuesday, not just in #UK, which was just one of TEN European countries to hit all time high daily #Covid19 infection numbers.

#Cyprus #France #Greece #Iceland #Italy #Malta #Montenegro #Portugal and #Spain the others to set new records.
Concern in #Norway. The #Omicron wave looked to be beyond the peak; is it making a comeback or is it still delayed Christmas cases?
4,702 new #Covid19 infections, fewer than 100 down on last Weds.

Better health data. 315 in hospital, down 13 since y'day, although 120 are in ICU

This is the start of the daily #Covid19 thread for Tuesday.

So despite big increases in cases and hospitalisations, no further restrictions for #England. How bad will the data be today? We'll find out later and I'll update and analyse all the data worldwide as often as possible:
Boris has urged you all to be cautious in the packed bars and nightclubs on New Year's Eve, so that's ok then!

First to South America where #Argentina has just topped 20,000 new #Covid19 cases in a day for the first time since July.

20,263 is the daily total, up 280% compared with the week before.
31 deaths.

Monday's #Covid19 thread starts here. Still holidays around the world for many, including #UK. But here all eyes on Boris Johnson - will he, or won't he make more restrictions or even lockdown? We should know today.

I've got more hospital data in the thread, updated real time..
So let me start with #UK. I've managed to get new health data, which will be critical to the decision on new restrictions in #England

As of y'day there were 7,536 #Covid19 patients in English hospitals; up 17.1% in a week.

But 2,425 of those are in London and that's up 45.5%
Strangely, South-East & South-West areas of #England have fewer #Covid19 patients in hospital.

Occupied hospital beds by region (weekly change):

#London 2,425 +46%
#Midlands 1,345 +17%
#East 681 +16%
#NorthWest 945 +8%
#Yorkshire/NE 847 +3%
#SouthEast 803 -2%
#SouthWest 490 -5%

Thursday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here with the best #Covid19 global analysis and round up available on Twitter.

First a little quiz, answer in the next Tweet:
Do you know which country has had the most recorded cases of Covid19 as a percentage of population?
So I hope there was no cheating... I'll leave some blank lines here too in case some later viewers don't want the answer just yet...
So the nation with more #Covid19 cases than any other based on population is highly vaccinated #Seychelles at more than 20% infected.
Today I spent quite a long time being filmed/interviewed by @bbcturkce about #Covid19 and #Turkey. Not sure how much they will use, let's see.

Coincidentally the cameraman Efe, just happened to be in Kyiv as one of those using Ukraine for a 10 day stop off to avoid hotel prison!

Because of the early start I missed a few countries from yesterday's thread, first I'll update these #Covid19 totals. Tweets during the day may be delayed due to travel & connectivity issues
