WHO declares end of global health emergency caused by COVID-19



Three years after the emergence of the new coronavirus put the world at a standstill, The World Health Organization announced that covid-19 is no longer a global health emergency.

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of the WHO, tweeted that the organization’s coronavirus emergency committee had recommended “an end to the public health emergency of international concern” and that he agreed.

“It is with great hope that I declare COVID-19 a global health emergency,” Ghebreyesus added.

Covid deaths have dropped from a peak of over 100,000 per week in January 2021 to just over 3,500 per week through April 24, 2023. WHO data.

As of May 3, more than 765 million cases of covid have been reported worldwide, including more than 6.9 million deaths. The US has 103 million cases and 1.1 million deaths. As of April 30, a total of 13.3 billion doses of the vaccine had been administered worldwide.

The public health emergency may be over, but COVID-19 continues to pose a threat, especially to vulnerable populations such as the elderly and those with weakened immune systems. There is also great uncertainty about long-term covid, in which symptoms of the disease persist after the initial infection.

As of May 3, more than 765 million cases of covid have been reported worldwide.

In some ways, the WHO declaration represents a symbolic end to a disease that has upended the world, causing lockdown and sending the economy into freefall. Some countries have already made their own covid statements.

President Joe Biden said the pandemic is over back in September 2022, despite some health experts wondering if it’s too early when the disease is still killing hundreds of people a day.


Peter Thiel says he freezes his body after death, but ‘not sure if it works’



Earlier this week, Thiel confessed to journalist Bari Weiss here is a podcast that he was paid to cryonic freeze his body after his death – in the hope that he could be resurrected if and when future generations find a solution to what would cause his future death.

However, he added the following caveat: “I think about it more than an ideological statement” before adding that he “[doesn’t] definitely expect it to work.”

Still, he thinks, “this is what we should try to do.”

Thiel’s decision to freeze his afterlife is not new. hello first The Telegraph mentioned it in 2014, stating that “People have a choice: accept death, deny it, or fight it.”

I think our society is dominated by people who deny or accept, and I prefer to fight that.”

NBC News It is estimated that a full body freeze costs around $200,000, while you can just freeze your head for as little as $80,000.

You can hear Thiel laying out his plans for the future on the ice below.

Study: Giraffes can make decisions based on statistical information



In a new study at the Barcelona Zoo, researchers tested whether giraffes (Giraffa camelopardalis), despite their smaller relative brain size, can rely on relative frequencies to predict sample outcomes.

The first lunar eclipse of 2023 slightly overshadowed the full moon



Stargazers in Asia and Australia got the best seats for this year’s first lunar eclipse.

The four-hour eclipse began late Friday evening or early Saturday, depending on the location, as the Moon slipped into the edge of the Earth’s shadow.

During the so-called penumbral lunar eclipse, the full moon passed in the outer part of the earth’s shadow, due to which the moon only slightly dimmed. Such an eclipse is not as dramatic as a partial lunar eclipse or a total lunar eclipse when the Moon, Earth and Sun are perfectly aligned.

The eclipse was visible from beginning to end, weather permitting, as far west as Saudi Arabia and the west coast of Africa, as far east as Japan and the South Island of New Zealand, and from the South Pole to Siberia. Almost all of Europe also took part in some of the activities.

V virtual telescope project showed a live feed of moonrise over the countryside in Tuscany, Italy.

“Even subtle astronomical events like this give me excitement and joy when I share them,” astrophysicist Gianluca Masi, founder of the project, wrote in an email.

The next lunar eclipse in October will show the best.

The eastern portions of the Americas will see at least part of a partial lunar eclipse as part but not all of the Moon passes through Earth’s dark central shadow. Asia, Africa and Europe will apply to the entire show.

A total lunar eclipse is not expected until 2025, when North America and the western half of South America take front row seats.
