Welcome to a column for those who don’t have time or inclination for Twitter-scrolling.
This week, we report on global security threats that pose huge health risks, as well as the decision of the United Nations General Assembly to next year hold a high-level meeting on pandemic prevention, preparedness and responses and the establishment in Australia of a federal parliamentary inquiry into Long COVID-19.
We cover global and local news on the climate crisis and on COVID-19, including big concerns about transparency and reporting, and worries about media, misinformation and democracy.
As well, we have captured a host of tweets alerting readers to upcoming events, new reviews and research results, health initiatives, and much more.
