A summary of what we know about Delta so far 7th sept 2021, scientifically:

- Vaccines
Vaccinated people are sick for less time and less severely + less time infectious
Moderna offers the best protection with +80% protection: so less than 20% still gets sick
Pfizer offers about 70% protection, but protection decreases over time, especially in people over 60: in Israel, 60% of people in the hospital are now fully vaccinated
Many countries give 3rd Pfizer shot after 5 months, there is even talk of a 4th shot in Israel.
@AstraZeneca and @JNJ only offer 40% protection. Protection with J&J is said to increase for 8 months, but more than half of the 'fully vaccinated' are susceptible to Delta.
Combination of different types of vaccines probably offers a higher protection rate.

C'est #CaMeDitCulture. Connaissez-vous le lien de Jacob Desvarieux avec le #Sénégal ? Kassav avec l'Afrique ?
Quand il avait 10 ans @JacobDesvarieux est venu vivre au Sénégal pour 2 ans et demi. Il habitait en face d'une maison de musiciens (surprise) ⤵️⤵️⤵️
📸 S. Tourné
L'aîné de la famille d'en face était musicien professionnel et tous ses petits frères jouaient de la guitare. La maman de Jacob avait offert une guitare au garçon "pour qu'il s'occupe" mais celui-ci n'avait jamais appris à jouer.
#JacobDesvarieux #Sénégal
Les petits frères du fameux musicien utilisaient donc sa guitare pour jouer pendant que lui observait. Alors il a demandé au musicien qui lui apprit ainsi à jouer une chanson.

A young woman has said an opposition leader in #Senegal raped her.

That opposition figure is himself a victim of state repression. Anti-government protests have erupted in his support.

When women’s bodies are used as proxy battlefields, read feminists…
“To speak out vs a powerful political almost to give up before you even start. How can we get Adji Sarr the support she needs at this time? We fail her when we only stick to the narrative of the powerful, even when that powerful person has been a victim of the state”
“When we fail to question why the leader is asking for charges to be dropped and the young woman’s in hiding, her life in danger, the democracy and freedom we are screaming while waving the Senegalese flag is not for everyone.”

Pretty fascinating story... Traditional king in Mlomp (Ziguinchor region, southern Senegal) sets market prices for a number of goods, apparently for local produce. So curious to know more, #Casamance & #Senegal heads.…
I assume it is an attempt to protect local agriculturists from traders. The king acts as a de facto union organiser...
Fascinating that Diola kingships, often been disregarded, are gaining traction. In a way, the Diola have found their marabouts - decades ago, the Murid khalif general had intervened to get better prices for groundnut farmers, among whom he counted many follower
