Crown's ex-chair Rankin faces ASIC referral over China arrests, Packer threat

  Crown's ex-chair Rankin faces ASIC referral over China arrests, Packer threat The Crown inquiry says it may send evidence it has uncovered about former chairman Robert Rankin to ASIC to investigate a possible breach of directors' duties.Counsel assisting the NSW probity inquiry into Crown, Scott Aspinall, made the bombshell suggestion on Wednesday that the inquiry may send evidence it has uncovered about Mr Rankin to the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) to investigate a possible breach of directors' duties.

Government officials do not expect to be able to vaccinate the full European Union population until 2022 , according to a report. “We lost control of the epidemic several weeks ago already.” Several challenges to distributing a potential vaccine have been voiced by regulators and experts all over the

“But in the absence of these, surveillance and intermittent distancing may need to be maintained into 2022 ,” the authors conclude. Serological surveys, assessing the proportion of the population carrying protective antibodies, will be crucial to establish whether people have long- lasting immunity.

The chairman of the Standing Vaccination Commission at the Robert Koch Institute assumes that vaccination of the entire population against the coronavirus will take place at the end of 2021, even if a vaccine is developed quickly will not be completed yet.

"It will take a long time before we will see a noticeable change in the infection process due to the vaccination, so that we can say that peace can now return," said virologist Thomas Mertens to the newspapers of the Funke media group (Thursday). If you were to vaccinate 100,000 people a day, it would take 150 days to vaccinate 15 million people. In Merten's view, this speed would already be a challenge.

At work or on the train? This is where most people get infected with the coronavirus

 At work or on the train? This is where most people get infected with the coronavirus The Corona case numbers are rising rapidly again. New hotspots and outbreaks across the country are reported daily. But where do most people get infected? The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) broken down on Tuesday in its daily report, where Germans are most often infected. At the beginning of the pandemic in Germany, it was mainly hospitals, refugee shelters and old people's and nursing homes in which outbreaks of infection were registered.

The 27-nation bloc, with a population of 450 million, has booked more than 1 billion doses of potential COVID-19 vaccines from three drugmakers. There is still no effective COVID-19 vaccine , but the first shots could be available at the beginning of next year, the Commission said earlier in October.

The virus spreads easily, and the majority of the world's population is still vulnerable to it. The main method of vaccination for decades has been to use the original virus. The measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine is made by using weakened viruses that cannot cause a full-blown infection.

Conflicts about the distribution

"The vaccination must not start in a hurry: it does not matter whether you start vaccinating four weeks earlier or later," said the virologist. Above all, transport and storage, the establishment of the regional vaccination centers and the nationwide simultaneous documentation of vaccinations must be well prepared, as well as the evaluation of the safety aspects and the medical vaccination success.

Mertens also expects that there will be conflicts over fair distribution in view of an initially scarce vaccine. "It can also be that individuals who do not get a chance straight away will complain."

According to the Federal Ministry of Health, so-called vulnerable groups should first be vaccinated, i.e. people with a high health risk. Mertens announced that the ethical framework for vaccine distribution will be published early next week. The deliberations of the Standing Vaccination Commission, the German Ethics Council and the Leopoldina would be concluded at the end of this week.

More than 10,000 corona deaths in Germany since the start of the pandemic

 More than 10,000 corona deaths in Germany since the start of the pandemic The number of deaths from the corona pandemic in Germany has exceeded the symbolic mark of 10,000 cases. As the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) announced on Saturday morning, a total of 10,003 deaths were recorded by Friday. That was 49 new registered deaths since the previous day. At the same time, the high wave of new infections every day continued. The heads of government of the federal states may deal with a further tightening of the corona measures next Friday.

That’s because once the initial wave of COVID-19 infections has passed, further outbreaks could occur. If lockdown restrictions are lifted at the same time More likely, they say, is that the virus is here to stay, recurring intermittently as the seasons come and go, much like influenza. Until a vaccine is

The coronavirus epidemic in the UK will last until next spring and could lead to 7.9 million However, the briefing makes clear that four in five of the population “are expected” to contract the virus. The health service cannot cope with the sheer number of people with symptoms who need to be tested
