Overall winner becomes a nature photographer from Italy

Roberto Marchesengi, a nature photographer from Italy, has been declared the overall winner of the competition for a photo of the Jurassic Park title. Magdalena Herrera, director of photography for Geo, France and Chair of Jury, said Roberto, Marchesengi's photo is of a fairy tale quality that goes far beyond the Wildlife document. He said, "Lightning-like branches with black thick forest and a small giraffe is very surprising."

Stubbornness created winner

Roberto tells his photo that, in order to have a better chance of getting good light, Marchezini went on a safari organized during the rainy season. Just before sunset, Marchesengi and his friends noticed a group of giraffes passing in front of the forest and clicked the photo with a 600 mm lens. Instead of taking pictures of giraffes passing by, he placed the foresting at a particular point in the forest and hoped that the giraffes would pass at that point. The angle was narrow, there was a lot of vegetation in the foreground which could damage the image. So they used maximum aperture to blur the vegetation.

Marchesengi further says that in the end I was successful in doing what I wanted and because of this stubbornness, I have become a winner today. He explains that the giraffe passed through the exact spot, "This scene reminded me of a Jurassic landscape, which had a vegetarian dinosaur similar to the giraffe."

Here are the winners

Alejandro Prieto of Mexico was the portfolio winner of Fred Hazelhoff. He created an interesting photo project about the wall between Mexico and the United States and the impact on wildlife. Other winners included Jo-Annie McArthur in the Man and Nature category, Ruben Perez Novo in the Other Animals category, Payal Hermansen in the Natural Art category, and Radomir Zakubowski in the Plants and Fungi categories.

Covid Vaccine: Will Pharmaceutical Companies Earn Bumper Profits?

 

At the time of the onset of the corona epidemic, we were warned that it takes years to develop a vaccine for any disease. So don't expect too much about vaccines.

But now with the passing of ten months, the corona virus epidemic vaccines are being given and many of the companies that are ahead in inventing these vaccines are behind them.

As a result, investment analysts predict that at least two of these companies (American biotech company Moderna and Germany's Bio-En-Tech), together with their partner company, Fizer of America, will trade billions of dollars next year.

But it is not clear how much money will be made by the manufacturer of the vaccine.

The way these vaccines have been funded and the way a large number of companies have come forward to manufacture vaccines, it seems that there will be no long-term opportunity to make big profits.

Who has invested money

Seeing the need of vaccine in times of epidemic, the government and fund givers gave billions of pounds to plan and test the vaccine. Organizations like Gates Foundation openly supported these schemes. Apart from this, many people also came forward and supported these schemes. Alibaba founder Jack Ma and music star Dolly Parton also came forward and gave funds for these schemes.

According to science data analytics company Airfinity, £ 6.5 billion has been given by governments to make and test Kovid. At the same time, 1.5 billion pounds were given from non-profit organizations.

Only 2.6 billion pounds came from the companies' own investment. Many of these companies rely heavily on external funding.

This was a big reason that big companies did not show any haste in funding vaccine projects.

Producing vaccines in such emergencies in the past has not proved very beneficial. The process of finding a vaccine takes time. Poor countries require a large consignment of vaccine but due to the high price they cannot take it. In rich countries, more profits are made from medicines taken daily.

The companies that manufacture vaccines for diseases like Zika and SARS suffered heavy losses. On the other hand, the market for vaccine for flu like diseases has billions. In such a situation, if the Kovid-19 remains like the flu and it needs to be vaccinated annually, then it can be beneficial for the companies making the vaccine. But only for those companies which will be most effective, as well as in the budget.

What price are they putting?

Some companies do not want to be seen making profit in this time of global crisis, especially after getting so much funding from outside. Major US pharmaceutical companies such as Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca of the UK are working closely with Oxford University-based biotech company.

She has promised on her behalf that she will keep the cost of her vaccine as much as possible so that only her cost comes out. As of now, in terms of AstraZeneca, it is believed that it will be available at the cheapest price (4 dollars i.e. around Rs 300 per dose).

Moderna is a small biotechnology company. Which has been working on the technology behind RNA vaccine for years. The price of dose against them is more than about 37 dollars i.e. two thousand seven rupees. Their aim is to earn profit for the shareholders of the company.

However, this does not mean that these prices have been fixed.

Usually, pharmaceutical companies pay different fees in different countries. It depends on the governments. AstraZeneca has promised to keep prices low for the epidemic. Maybe they will start charging a comparatively higher price from next year. It completely depends on the nature of the epidemic.

Emily Fields, head of European pharmaceuticals at Barclays, says, "Now the governments of rich countries will pay more. They are so desperate about vaccines or dosages just how they can end the epidemic."

She adds, "Probably as more vaccines start coming into the market next year, the price of the vaccine may also come down due to competition."

Rasmus Beck Hansen, Chief Executive of Airfinity, says, "In the meantime, we shouldn't expect private companies either. Especially companies that are small and don't sell any other product. So don't expect them to They will sell the vaccine without thinking about the profits. "

He says, "It has to be kept in mind that these companies have taken a big risk and they have really moved forward."

He adds, "And if you want these small companies to succeed in the future, then they need to be rewarded in that way."

But some people differ on the state of humanitarian crisis and public funding. According to him, this is not the time of business as usual.

Should they share their technology?

With so much at stake right now, there is a demand that the entire technology and information behind these vaccines should be shared so that companies in India and South Africa, for example in other countries, have dosed vaccines. To make it in your markets.

"This should be a prerequisite for obtaining public funding," says Ellen T. Hoen of Medicines Law and Policy.

She says, "When the epidemic started, big pharma companies did not show much enthusiasm about the vaccine. But when the government and agencies came forward with the fund, they had to work on it."

"They don't understand why they have the privilege to benefit from the results," says Hoen.

She says, "These new discoveries later become the personal property of these commercial organizations."

Although people are sharing some things with each other on an intellectual level, but these are not enough in any case.

So Will Pharma Companies Make Bumper Profits?

Governments and multilateral organizations have already pledged to buy billions of doses at fixed prices. In such a situation, for the next few months, companies will be busy in fulfilling those orders as soon as possible.

People who are selling vaccine doses to rich countries are also expecting returns on their investment. Although AstraZeneca has to supply the most dosage, it will still focus only on meeting the cost.

After the first demand is supplied, it is difficult to predict what the situation will be about the vaccine. Because it depends on many things. For example, those who have been given a vaccine dose remain immune to the corona. How many vaccines are successful and how smoothly the vaccine is manufactured and then distributed.

According to Emily Fields of Barclays, "The opportunities to make profits will be 'very temporary'."

Even though people who are currently in the race to make vaccines and are not sharing their intellectual property with others, despite this, 50 such vaccines are being made worldwide which are undergoing clinical trials.

According to Emily Fields, "There may be 20 vaccines in the market in the coming two years. In such a situation it is becoming difficult to get a high price for the vaccine."

She believes that in the long run, this can have an impact on the company's reputation. If a vaccine is successful, it can prove to be helpful in opening the door to sale of Kovid treatment or other related products.

Hansen of Airfinity says that if this happens, it can be a relief from the difficult phase of the epidemic.

He expects governments to say that governments should invest in strategizing in the context of epidemics. Just like she is doing now for safety and security.

Among all these, what is the most important and influential thing is that how did the market price of Bio-N-Tech and Moderna suddenly go up. This is because their vaccines prove their concept of RNA technology.

Prior to Kovid, Bio En Tech had been working on a vaccine for skin cancer and on an RANE vaccine for modern ovarian cancer. If any of it succeeds, it will be a huge achievement.

Corana: New form of virus in Britain, strict lockdown imposed

 

A new variant (variant) of the corona virus has been found in parts of Britain, which is spreading rapidly.

The country's Health Minister Matt Hancock said that at least 60 different local administrations have received cases of Kovid infection in this new form.

He said that the World Health Organization has notified it and UK scientists are doing a detailed study on it.

The minister said that this disease can worsen and the vaccine may not work on it.

He told the House that cases of infection with the Coron virus in parts of London, Kent, Essex and Hertfordshire have increased very fast last week.

The Health Minister said, "At present we have received more than 1,000 cases of this type of virus which have been reported especially in the southern part of England. These cases have been found in 60 different areas.

"Because of this, we have to take fast and decisive action which is necessary to control this deadly disease, even if vaccine is being given for it."

Professor Witty, Chief Medical Officer of England, said that this new type of corona virus has been detected in the present-day corona virus, which has been found in the last few weeks, especially in Kent and surrounding areas.

Hardest lockdown

In view of this potential danger, the strongest lockdown has been announced in England so far. New rules will be introduced in London, and especially in parts of Essex and Hertfordshire, from Wednesday.

Tier 3 will have high alert on a large scale. Pubs and restaurants will remain closed in this, only takeaway and delivery will continue. Apart from this, theaters, cinema halls etc. will remain closed.

However, some sections have also expressed resentment over the stringent lockdown. Representatives of the hospitality sector have warned that this could put thousands of jobs at risk.

Try to understand the virus

Changes in the virus are linked to the spike proteins present in it. These are the part of the virus that helps to infect the cells and the Corona virus vaccine has been prepared keeping this in mind.

Now it is difficult to know how this will affect the change of virus.

Expert Professor Alan McNally at Birmingham University told the BBC, "We don't have to worry too much." This does not mean that it is more contagious or dangerous. We just have to keep an eye on him.

There is a big effort to understand this type of virus. It is important to maintain peace in the event of stress.

Doctor Jeremy Farrar, director of Welcome, says it can be serious. Its monitoring and research on it should continue and we should take necessary steps so that we can stay ahead of the virus.

Jonathan Ball, a professor of molecular virology at Nottingham University, says, "The genetic information of many viruses can change very quickly and sometimes these changes benefit the virus, such that it can spread rapidly or escape the effects of the vaccine." is. However, many times the changes in the virus have no effect.

"Even though a new type of virus has emerged in Britain, but it can be a coincidence. Therefore, it is too early to make any claims until we are able to study the changes and effects of the virus.

State of germany and america

Corona virus cases are decreasing in many countries but the risk is increasing in many places.

In Germany, strict lockdown will be done during Christmas keeping in mind the increasing cases of corona virus infection and deaths due to it.

Non-essential shops will be closed all over Germany from Wednesday itself. In addition, schools are also being closed.

Chancellor Angela Merkel has blamed people for the purchase before Christmas, responsible for the current situation.

There will now be a lockdown in Germany from 16 December to 10 January.

On Sunday, 20,200 new cases of corona infection were reported in Germany and 321 people died.

In the US, cases of corona virus death have been increasing rapidly since November.

So far more than one crore 69 lakh cases of corona virus have been reported in America and nearly three lakh people have died. Corona vaccine has started in America.

Corona vaccine: how and where to get it in India, the government released a guideline

 

The Central Government issued guidelines regarding the procedure and how the vaccine of Corona vaccine will be administered to the people in India.

One of the instructions of the central government is that 100-200 people will be given vaccine in every session every day, after which they will be monitored for half an hour to see if there are any adverse effects on anyone.

Apart from this, only one person will be allowed to go inside the center for a vaccine at a time.

Use of digital platform

Guidelines issued to the states state that the digital platform 'Kovid Vaccine Intelligence Network (Co-Win) System' will be used to track vaccine people and the corona virus vaccine.

Vaccination will be given to only pre-registered people at the place of vaccination so that priority can be set. At the same time no provision for registration is currently made.

Along with this, instructions have been given to the states that they should first identify which vaccine manufacturer will deliver the vaccine to the district of that state so that different vaccines are not mixed together.

According to 'Kovid Vaccine Operational Guidelines', all measures should be taken to ensure that no carrier, vial or ice pack carrying the vaccine is directly exposed to sunlight.

Vaccines and other liquids will not be removed from the carrier until a person is present at the vaccination center to be vaccinated.
