  2. Variant Hunters Race to Find New Strains Where Testing Lags In countries without much sequencing, new versions of the Covid virus can go unnoticed. Scientists across Africa are collaborating to track them down. DATA VISUALIZATION: MARINA DEKHNIK/GETTY IMAGES IN MID-FEBRUARY, THREE travelers were stopped at the airport in Luanda, Angola.

  11. Why Are COVID-19 Cases Really Falling? Photo illustration by Slate. Photos by BirdHunter591/iStock/Getty Images Plus and ffikretow/iStock/Getty Images Plus. After climbing the grim upward slope of an epidemic curve that seemed destined to rise forever, we find ourselves somewhat unexpectedly sliding down the other side, with cases in the U.S. declining at such a steep rate it almost seems too good to be true: They’ve gone from a peak of 300,000 new cases per day on Jan. 2 to 62,000 on Tuesday. Just as with each steep rise in cases in the spring and fall, scientist
  12. Can nasal sprays help in the fight against Covid-19? A study in Israel found that nasal sprays can help to prevent coronavirus infections. Here is everything you need to know... A study in Israel suggested that they could stop infection Scientists are working round the clock to develop game-changing new treatments in the fight against Covid-19. One unlikely candidate to emerge is nasal sprays. This week, it was revealed that out of 83 worshippers who attended a Jewish festival in Bnei Brak and were given nasal sprays, only two contracted co
  13. How did Chile get so many people vaccinated against Covid-19? If you look at the data on vaccine rollouts across Latin America, there’s one clear outlier: Chile. The country has vaccinated just over 12% of its population, putting it just behind the US and well ahead of all of its neighbors, according to national figures compiled by Our World in Data. Chile started out with a few advantages. It doesn’t have a massive population like China (there are just 19 million Chileans) or a vast, impenetrable landmass like Russia or Brazil. It’s a relatively wealthy natio

  16. Why you're seeing COVID-19 vaccine selfies all over Facebook and Twitter Misinformation on vaccines has run rampant on the internet, but some people are hoping vaccine selfies could help open a dialogue with skeptics. Jon Chapman isn't turning into a mutant. The 38-year-old medical laboratory scientist from Iowa City got his first COVID-19 vaccination the Monday before Christmas, and aside from a sore arm, he felt fine. Since then, he hasn't grown a tail, he doesn't have scales and -- so far -- there's no sign of wings. He wanted his friends and family to know thi
  17. Can Robots and Drones Help to Fight COVID-19? Using drones to help make our living and working spaces a little safer is not too much of a stretch. ROMAN SAMBORSKYI/SHUTTERSTOCK.COM It’s great news that people are finally starting to get vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus.

But other vaccination campaigns might point us in the right direction. Photograph: Bing Guan/Bloomberg/Getty Images The rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine is going badly. Delivering more doses faster is central to the 200-page White House Covid-19 plan, which was released last week, one day after President Joe Biden took office.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi imposed one of the world’s strictest lockdowns in March, sapping

  25. Pfizer's experimental coronavirus vaccine succeeded in the final stage of clinical trials, the drugmaker said Monday, a milestone in society's fight against the pandemic. Developing an effective vaccine against a brand-new virus in less than a year is an unprecedented feat in medicine. The study found people who got Pfizer's shot were less likely to develop COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.
