Australia vaccination coverage is clawing its way up

Australia is clawing its way up from the bottom of the pack of wealthy nations in the COVID-19 vaccination race.

A quick guide to Delta

What’s behind Melbourne’s anti-lockdown protests

Protests started last week after Victoria’s government first mandated COVID-19 vaccines for construction workers, and then shut the building industry down for two weeks.

Australia lower rare AstraZeneca-related clots mortality 

In Australia, 11.3 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine — now called Vaxzevria — have been administered, with a total of 141 people developing a confirmed or probable case of TTS linked to the jab.

Fraudulent ivermectin studies open up new battleground

Ivermectin has never been proven as an effective Covid treatment, and studies that said it was have been either poorly conducted, too small for their findings to be applied more widely or outright faked. Yet the drug’s popularity has soared.
