Australia to trial ‘backup’ COVID-19 vaccines

Australia cannot rely on overseas vaccines remaining effective and needs a “backup”, say authorities, who have awarded $1.6 million to a trial to fight the ‘new COVID-19 strain’.

By mid-2021, volunteers aged between 18 and 75 years will be recruited for an ‘accelerated clinical trial’ of two “next generation” vaccines, developed by the University of Melbourne.


Post-bushfire AI surveillance program ‘monitoring wildlife’

Artificial intelligence and “an army of new sensor cameras” will be used to ‘track the recovery of animals impacted by bushfires’, in one of the most extensive surveillance programs undertaken.

The program is predicted to compliment existing regional surveillance programs carried out by authorities, all designed for incremental fulfilment of the Agenda 2030 vision.
