I spoke w/ @segal_eran (a leading light in the pandemic) today in prep @PMWCintl on Israel's situation.
3 key points:
—B.1.1.7 is now dominant there, ~50%, posing a big challenge for containment
—Status is improving 👍👇
—Single (1st) vaccine dose not as impactful as expected
A l attention des trolls et autres pseudo comptes : la SFV est pour (vrais) virologues +(vrais) scientifiques +(vrais) amoureux des sciences. Mais vous pouvez adherer pour 50E/an avec en plus un abonnemt 1 an a Virologie pour enfin apprendre la vraie virologie.
