A large number of poorer countries receiving Covid-19 vaccines through a global sharing scheme do not have enough doses to continue programmes, the World Health Organization has said.
WHO senior adviser Dr Bruce Aylward said the Covax programme had delivered 90 million doses to 131 countries. But he said this was nowhere near enough to protect populations from a virus still spreading worldwide. The shortages come as some nations in Africa see a third wave of infections. On Monday, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa called for an end to vaccine hoarding by wealthier countries as his government scrambled to curb a steep rise in cases. On a continental level, only 40 million doses have been administered so far in Africa - less than 2% of the population, Mr Ramaphosa said. To address this, he said his government was working with Covax to create a regional hub to produce more vaccines in South Africa.
This exact thing happens to me, I've tried using APC, Tripp-lite, and CyberPower. The laser printer (not directly attached to UPS) but on same circuit warms up the fuser thus causing a brown-out condition on the circuit, then causing the UPS to activate to hold up the PC and other devices.. thus cycling its sealed lead acid 6v battery within a few seconds, causing them to go below 50%. This may work a few times but if it drops below 50% charge it damages the 6v battery.. thus will need to be replaced continually unless you move the laser printer or have the circuit conditioned to handle the greater load.
Massachusetts launched a COVID tracking app, and uh, it was automatically installed?!
Over the weekend, Google and the state of Massachusetts managed to make creepy COVID tracking apps even creepier by automatically installing them on people's Android phones. Numerous reports on Reddit, Hacker News, and in-app reviews claim that "MassNotify," Massachusetts' COVID tracking app, silently installed on their Android device without user consent. Google gave the following statement to 9to5Google, and the company does not deny silently installing an app.
What I don't understand is why it sends multiple copies.
Because you are going over the maximum allowed attachment size. It's simply not supported.
What you should be asking is why gmail sends it at all. Obviously a bug i their system.
That being said - 25 MB attachment is not a lot. Some places mentions that the limit is actually 25MB total size with attachments being base64 encoded, which means that you will hit the limit somewhere around a 18 MB attachment.
If you send a lot of email attachments maybe it's time to look for another email provider.
Nope, why would we? LOL I don't know anyone much running in house email anymore. Those that do just use a mail filtering service, not an appliance. This is a device for a very different era. Not the kind of thing you'd expect to see still deployed.
