A panel of experts within the US has voted to recommend granting emergency approval for Pfizer / BioNTech’s Covid-19 vaccine, thus paving the way for the United States to become the next country to move ahead with mass immunisation.

Total global cases up to 5.30pm this evening, now stand at almost 69.9 million with global deaths almost 1.59 million.

Please be mindful, this Christmas season, that this virus remains a constant danger especially to vulnerable and older persons.
