Jeez—an explosive 968% spike in #COVID19 in just one week—where the G7 Summit recently took place (and many security planners arrived 2 weeks ago). Is this related to the #G7Cornwall #G7Summit2021? Hmm, but a ~1000% increase is not something seen everyday.

HT @Dr_D_Robertson.
2) We can debate whether it’s because it started from a low base. But going up that fast is not normal at all. UK is very concerned about the spike there too. google.com/amp/s/www.bbc.…
3) Dr Ruth Goldstein said they were mainly Delta variant cases in under-30s.

Public health consultant, Dr Goldstein, said the rise was thought to be down to people from Cornwall travelling out and back during the school half-term break, as well as people coming in.

The #G7 are failing in their duty to provide global leadership to end the COVID19 pandemic for everyone everywhere. More than 1m people have died from COVID since G7 leaders last met back in February, when they pledged to increase the global vaccine supply.
@ChathamHouse @CHGlobalHealth @UNAIDS @HelenClarkNZ @DrMikeRyan @yates_rob @G7 Of the 1.77bn doses of COVID vaccines given globally, 28% have been in @G7 countries. In contrast just 0.3% of COVID jabs have been given in low-income countries.
COVID-19 related deaths are increasingly concentrated in low- and middle-income countries. This is heart-breaking.
The scale of this inequality is not an accident. It was predictable months ago. President Ramaphosa @CyrilRamaphosa called it “#VaccineApartheid” - and it is.
