I have just received the sad news of the death of my old comrade and friend, Hans-Gerd Öfinger. It was a great shock and the last thing I expected to hear. Only a couple of weeks ago I had sent him an email when I discovered that both he and his daughter Rosa had contracted COVID-19. He wrote back to say that he was recovering well and was impatient to get back to his revolutionary work.
Vários países na Europa suspenderam o uso da vacina AstraZeneca/Oxford University nas últimas duas semanas, devido a uma associação não comprovada (e improvável) com coágulos sanguíneos. Na sequência de uma revisão pela Agência Médica Europeia, eles agora retomaram a vacinação, mas esta decisão, politicamente dirigida, abalou seriamente a confiança pública na vacina, que já era baixa.
