Covid death toll is more likely 15 million according to WHO

Annika is back! and after discussing stupid Putin and his failed war a little, we turn our focus to space. We look towards the black hole in the Milky Way to get as far away as possible and yes, Norway really has this very special space programme about fish in space. In TWISH (This Week in Skeptical History) we revisit the legend of the Apparitions of Our Lady of Fàtima since it all started this week in 1917. No pope today, so instead we travel on right into the news:

  • INTERNATIONAL: European populism linked to vaccine hesitancy, but more research is needed
  • INTERNATIONAL: Almost 15 million excess deaths due to covid
  • HUNGARY / V4: Coordinated online troll activity detected in relation to the war in Ukraine
  • HUNGARY: Fidesz supporters prefer Putin to western political leaders – Survey
  • EUROPE: WHO to bring the Europe region closer to a cervical cancer-free future – with HPV vaccines
  • UK: Why girls don’t necessarily choose to pursue studies into physics

This weeks Really Wrong Award goes to ‘Antroposophian’ Harad Matthes who went on television claiming to ‘prove’ severe risks with covid vaccines when in fact he is just a crank. The TV network MDR also gets a prize for giving him a platform.

Enjoy!
