(March 9, 2021) China to support WHO on setting up vaccination mutual recognition platform
The World Health Organization (WHO) on Monday once again expressed practical and ethical concerns
over using a vaccination passport as a certificate for international travel,
while China on the same day launched its version of a health code for people who travel abroad.

The certificate includes nucleic acid test and serum antibody results, vaccine inoculation and other information.
It has an encrypted code that allows authorities to verify the holder's personal information,
according to China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Israel wants to be the first country to sign an agreement
on mutual recognition of vaccines with China, Israeli Ambassador Irit Ben-Abba Vitale said in an interview with Chinese media on Monday.

(March 2, 2021) No jab, no Hajj: Saudi says all Muslims will need to have Covid vaccine before they can perform annual pilgrimage to Mecca
Health authorities in Saudi Arabia have said that any Muslim wanting to perform the annual Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca
will first need to be provide proof that they’ve been vaccinated against Covid-19.
Saudi Arabia’s Health Ministry confirmed the decision in a statement on Tuesday,
saying that vaccination would be “the main condition for participation,”
after Health Minister Tawfiq Al Rabiah said “compulsory vaccination” would be required for all pilgrims.
The kingdom began its vaccination program on December 17,
with the Moderna, Pfizer and AstraZeneca jabs being approved for use.

(March 7, 2021) Austria suspends use of batch of Covid jab after death of nurse
Authorities in Austria have stopped vaccinations with a batch of AstraZeneca's inoculation
against the coronavirus, after one person died and another became seriously ill after receiving their jabs.
A 49-year-old woman died as a result of severe coagulation disorders, an illness related to the blood’s ability to clot.
The woman was admitted to the intensive care unit of Vienna General Hospital last weekend
after initially being treated at a hospital in Lower Austria. A day after being admitted, the woman died.
Meanwhile, a 35-year-old female developed a pulmonary embolism and is now recovering.
A pulmonary embolism is a lung disease that is caused by a dislodged blood clot.
Several local news organization reported that both women were nurses working at the local hospital.

(March 11, 2021) Denmark suspends use of AstraZeneca COVID vaccine
The Danish Health Authority on Thursday halted the use of the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine for 14 days.
It follows reports of "serious cases of blood clots among vaccinated people," a statement read.
However, the authority stopped short of saying there was a direct link between the vaccine and the blood clots, "at the time being."
Shortly after Denmark's announcement, Iceland and Norway both halted the rollout of the vaccine.
Italy also moved to ban a batch of the AstraZeneca vaccine following reports "of some serious adverse effects.

(March 10, 2021) The EMA covid-19 data leak, and what it tells us about mRNA instability
The BMJ has reviewed the documents, which show that regulators had major concerns
over unexpectedly low quantities of intact mRNA in batches of the vaccine developed for commercial production.

In short, commercial manufacturing was not producing vaccines to the specifications expected,
and regulators were unsure of the implications. EMA responded by filing two “major objections” with Pfizer,
along with a host of other questions it wanted addressed. The email identified “a significant difference in % RNA integrity/truncated species”
between the clinical batches and proposed commercial batches—from around 78% to 55%.


The root cause was unknown and the impact of this loss of RNA integrity
on safety and efficacy of the vaccine was “yet to be defined,” the email said.
It is an issue relevant not just to Pfizer-BioNTech’s vaccine but also to those produced by Moderna, CureVac, and others,
as well as a “second generation” mRNA vaccine being pursued by Imperial College London.

..
The BMJ asked Pfizer, Moderna, and CureVac, as well as several regulators, what percentage mRNA integrity
they consider acceptable for vaccines against covid-19. None offered any specifics.
The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, the UK’s medicines regulator,
acknowledged the lack of a specified percentage RNA integrity, but declined to provide further detail.
“The specification limit acceptance criteria are commercially confidential,” the agency said in an email.

(March 13, 2021) Mastercard and ICC to explore interoperability of digital health credentials
The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and Mastercard are partnering
to explore the possibility of making their digital health pass solutions interoperable.
Mastercard explained that the interoperability isn’t just between different health credentials
but also between other technologies such as passports or identity and tickets.
ICC and Mastercard are part of ID2020’s Good Health Pass Collaborative.
The initiative is also backed by the Airports Council International, Hyperledger, IBM, the Covid Credentials Initiative, and others.

Meanwhile, blockchain health credentials are also being developed for motives beyond travel.
IBM developed a Digital Health Pass for companies to verify employee health status,
and the State of New York is piloting the blockchain health certificate app
to show proof of vaccination or negative test results.
Big Blue was also recently awarded a project for German health certificates alongside local firms.

(March 15, 2021) Quad Members Join Forces to Produce 1 Billion Vaccines for Indo-Pacific Countries
On March 12th, leaders of the Quad’s member countries came together in a virtual meet to discuss the strategy to counter China’s influence
in the Indo-Pacific region. The decisions included grouping 4 nations’ manufacturing, financing, and distribution capability
to deliver 1 billion vaccines to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) by the end of 2022.

The Quad, short for Quadrilateral Security Dialogue, is an informal forum formed by Japan, the United States, Australia, and India in 2007.
They have previously joined forces to tackle the Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami in 2004. In 2017, the Quad was used as a tool to combat China by the Trump’s administration.
The Quad has held an annual meeting ever since with a minister’s meeting in 2019 and one in Japan the following year.

Each country in the Quad has a different role in pushing the goal of 1 billion vaccines.
The United States will work with a vaccine manufacturer in India, Biological E, to increase the manufacturing capacity
and support the “last-mile” vaccination with more than 100 million to reach immunization.
Japan will provide loans to the Indian government to expand manufacturing power
to export vaccines to lower-, middle-income or vaccine-lacking countries in the Indo-Pacific region.

A corporate coup has removed Tanzania’s “Covid denying president”, and nobody should be surprised.
The official cause of death is rumoured to be a heart attack,
but some are implying it may have been due to the virus.
If what happened in Burundi last summer is any guide,
the Tanzanian Covid approach will be totally reversed within a day or two of the President dying.
As the Council on Foreign Relations reported, only last week:
”a bold figure within the ruling party could capitalize on the current episode to begin to reverse course.”

(February 25, 2021) Study explores individual differences of SARS-CoV-2 infection in ACE2-expressing stem cells
Human iPSCs are not infected by SARS-CoV-2 since they express the viral entry receptor, the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) at low levels.
These cells do have high levels of the coronavirus receptor CD147 and of the serine protease TMPRSS2.
In order to render them susceptible to SARS-CoV-2 infection, the iPSCs were engineered with the relevant genes, inserted by adenovirus vectors (Ad),
with almost 100% efficiency. These genes encoded human ACE2 and TMPRSS2 at over-expressing levels, leading to massive infection by the virus.
TMPRSS2 overexpression alone was inadequate to produce this effect.

European Medicines Agency (EMA) 2021 Funding
For 2021, the total budget of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) amounts to €385.9 million.
Around 86% of the Agency's budget derives from fees (from Pharma industry) and charges
and 14% from the European Union (EU) contribution for public-health issues and less than 1% from other sources.
Of the total budget in 2021:

approximately €330.4 million will come from fees (from Pharma industry) and charges levied for regulatory services;
approximately €55.4 million are expected in income from the EU,
mainly to support the policies for orphan and paediatric medicines, advanced therapies and micro, small and medium-sized enterprises.

The Agency charges a fee for processing applications from companies that want to bring a medicine to the market.
It also charges fees for services related to the marketing of medicines in the EU in areas such as scientific advice, inspections and the establishment of maximum residue limits.

New York has become the first state to launch a “vaccine passport”
that can be used to get into certain venues. Called an Excelsior Pass,
the passport will be available on a phone app in the form of a QR code
that can be scanned to prove the owner has been vaccinated,

USA Today reported on Friday. Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) is reportedly expected
to announce the new initiative on Friday. The pass will be used at entertainment venues
and can allow for increased crowd sizes for events such as weddings.

It is not clear if vaccine passports will be developed around the country
or accepted by many Americans, as some are still unwilling to get the coronavirus vaccine.

(March 26, 2021) Amazon receives FDA authorization for its own COVID-19 test and employee screening program
According to agency documents, workers in the retail giant’s offices, warehouses and fulfillment centers may be automatically assigned regular testing appointments,
typically every two weeks, though individuals can voluntarily elect whether to participate. The nasal swab tests
will be approved under a standing-order prescription from a contracted healthcare provider, the FDA said,
and administered in-person, under supervision via a telehealth link,
or self-performed while unsupervised at home or at work, with samples being mailed to laboratories for analysis.

In addition, people who test negative will be continuously tested
n pools of up to five samples. The molecular diagnostic and collection kit
were developed by an Amazon subsidiary, dubbed STS Lab Holdco.

(March 26, 2021) Six fully-vaccinated patients have died of Covid-19
Superintendent of Public Health Professor Charmaine Gauci confirmed
that six individuals who had received both jabs against Covid-19 have died of the virus.
Public health chief Gauci made this announcement during her weekly Covid-19 health briefing.
Answering questions posed by the media, Gauci remarked that those who received the vaccine
are protected against the virus - however, that protection is not 100% from the virus.
Malta currently has three vaccines at its disposal: the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, the Moderna vaccine, and the AstraZeneca vaccine.

(March 29, 2021) Pfizer Demands South African Ministers Personally Sign Vaccine Pact
Pfizer Inc. is demanding that South Africa’s health and finance ministers
personally sign a Covid-19 vaccine-supply agreement so that it is indemnified
from any claims made against it in the country regarding the shot.

The demand is contained in a March 24 letter from South Africa’s Health Minister Zweli Mkhize
to his finance counterpart Tito Mboweni, seen by Bloomberg and confirmed by the National Treasury.
Pfizer was not satisfied by assurances that the signature of the country’s health director general was sufficient to guarantee the indemnity, Mkhize said.

(November 9, 2018) MODERNA, INC.
..
Currently, mRNA is considered a gene therapy product by the FDA.
Unlike certain gene therapies that irreversibly alter cell DNA and could act as a source of side effects,
mRNA based medicines are designed to not irreversibly change cell DNA; however, side effects observed in gene therapy
could negatively impact the perception of mRNA medicines despite the differences in mechanism.

In addition, because no product in which mRNA is the primary active ingredient has been approved,
the regulatory pathway for approval is uncertain. The number and design of the clinical and preclinical studies required
for the approval of these types of medicines have not been established,
may be different from those required for gene therapy products or may require safety testing like gene therapy products.

Moreover, the length of time necessary to complete clinical trials and to submit an application for marketing approval for a final decision
by a regulatory authority varies significantly from one pharmaceutical product to the next, and may be difficult to predict.

We have incurred significant losses since our inception and anticipate that we will continue to incur significant losses for the foreseeable future.
We have incurred net losses in each year since our inception in 2009, including net losses of $216.2 million and $255.9 million for the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2017, respectively.
As of December 31, 2017, we had an accumulated deficit of $621.9 million. As of September 30, 2018, we had an accumulated deficit of $865.2 million.

(March 30, 2021) We’ve won our lawsuit over Matt Hancock’s £23m NHS data deal with Palantir
For a year, we’ve been fighting legal battles over the British government’s secretive NHS data deals
with controversial ‘spy tech’ firm Palantir. Today, we can announce an important victory.
Back in December, after we had spent months on legal efforts to get transparency,
the government snuck through a massive £23m, two-year deal with Palantir, a CIA-backed data firm.
They contracted Palantir to process our sensitive health data.

We raised objections: the initial deals were framed as a short-term, emergency COVID response,
but the new contract revealed mission creep well beyond the pandemic.
Government lawyers insisted that citizens have no right to a say in major NHS contracts with big tech.
But we believed the public does have those rights. So we sued.

Facing our lawsuit, the government has finally caved.
They’ve pressed pause, committing not to extend Palantir’s contract beyond COVID without consulting the public.
It’s a major U-turn at a critical moment. The NHS, with its unique trove of structured health data, is powerfully attractive to tech corporations.
The NHS datastore is the largest pool of private health data in NHS history, and that raises questions too important to be settled in secret deals.

(March 30, 2021) WHO & leaders of 23 countries advocate global treaty to tackle future Covid-style health emergencies
Leaders of 23 countries and the World Health Organization (WHO) have backed the idea of creating a global treaty
that would bolster international cooperation in case of future health emergencies like the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

While the exact wording of the proposed treaty is still to be determined, the group urged the world to form a mechanism
that would provide tools for a uniform response to global health emergencies.
The piece also strikes something of an environmentalist tone, advocating a “One Health” approach
that would connect “the health of humans, animals and our planet.”

The opinion piece has been signed by the leaders of
Fiji, Portugal, Romania, the UK, Rwanda, Kenya, France, Germany, Greece, Korea, Chile, Costa Rica,Albania, South Africa,
Trinidad and Tobago, the Netherlands, Tunisia, Senegal, Spain, Norway, Serbia, Indonesia, and Ukraine.

(March 29, 2021) Japan, Estonia and New York State digital health pass plans revealed
Japan is joining the EU, China, and other countries around the world in issuing digital vaccination certificates to inoculated individuals
to support their return to previously normal activities, including international travel, Nikkei reports.
The standards will be determined with reference to the EU’s vaccine certificates and the World Economic Forum’s CommonPass.

Estonia is also planning to launch its digital vaccine certificate in April,
ERR News writes, in collaboration with enterprise blockchain provider Guardtime.
Estonia’s health pass will also be integrated with the EU’s system when it is launched in June.

Lithuania is planning to release its digital health certificate by the summer,
and a report has indicated Latvia’s will also be ready in April.
Finland has already begun issuing digital health passes.

New York has launched a digital identity-based health credential, Excelsior Pass,
which allows people to gather in larger groups and access event venues, according to USA Today.
Vaccination data is populated from the state registry, and pre-approved testing companies.
The Vaccine Credential Initiative, which includes Microsoft, the Mayo Clinic, Oracle, Walmart, CVS and Salesforce,
is set to issue its standards for vaccine passports next month.

Israel’s ‘Green Passes,’ meanwhile, are being spoofed, prompting interest in stronger authentication of the person holding the digital health pass.
Pangea’s COVID-19 access control system now confirms the validity of Green Pass COVID vaccination credentials with face biometrics, CTech reports.
