🇦🇺 "Australia is experiencing a “big wave” of Covid-19 infections that is coinciding with a rise in ​influenza and other winter illnesses, health authorities and experts are warning."

"Esterman said the current wave was “as bad as it was at the end of last year”. “And it’s still going up, so that’s a major concern especially since many hospitals have stopped mandatory face masks for their staff.”

“We’re looking at 6 to 10 times as many people actually infected as the case numbers are showing,” Esterman said.

🇨🇦 Canada: Ontario pulls plug on COVID-19 wastewater surveillance.

Province says move will 'avoid duplication' as Ottawa expands its monitoring program.

Premier Doug Ford's government is scrapping Ontario's program for sampling wastewater to monitor the level of COVID-19 in the population.

The program measures how much of the virus that causes COVID-19 is circulating around the province and is run by a dozen universities and research sites, through funding from the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks.

In a statement, a provincial official said the move will "avoid duplication" with a federal program.

FDA Panel to Consider Which COVID Strain to Target in an Updated Vaccine.

— The KP.2 subvariant is now dominant in the U.S., FDA staff says in a briefing document.

"Because the antigenic distance between JN.1 and JN.1-derived subvariants such as KP.2 subvariants is not far, it is possible that vaccines developed against JN.1 may adequately protect against KP.2. However, further SARS-CoV-2 evolution may lead to further divergence from JN.1, and consideration may need to be given to the selection of the subvariant that is currently predominant to assure the best possible match as the virus further evolves."

World unprepared for another pandemic as WHO treaty talks push on | reuters.com

@auscovid19

“We only hope that... (in the) next few months, we don't have another pandemic that finds us in a world which is still unprepared for a major crisis,” Muhammad Ali Pate, Nigeria’s health minister and a board member of the Global Fund to Fight Aids, Tuberculosis and Malaria, told Reuters. A major sticking point in the treaty has been provisions for low and middle-income countries to have access to 20% of tests, treatments and vaccines developed to fight the pandemic, either at no-profit costs or donated. Ali Pate said the figure was reasonable to avoid the scramble for life-saving products that saw African countries last-in-line during COVID. While talks on the treaty are likely to continue for several months or even years, a parallel process to update an existing set of rules that govern international disease outbreaks are closer to agreement, sources said, and could be signed off before the end of the WHO’s annual meeting on Saturday. Other negotiators and observers said there was a sense of urgency in the treaty talks, not least because of concerns that elections in a number of key countries this year could bring in right-leaning governments who fear the treaty could threaten their sovereignty, which the WHO denies and a clause in the document guards against. “This needs to be done now or else things are only going to get worse with things moving to the right,” said one Western diplomat.
