Catzilla



Matt McCarthy describes his own cats as sweet and cuddly creatures, but on the day when he saw his cats play with a bug that entered his home, McCarthy remembered something about cats: they are apex predators. A thought then crossed his mind: “How would cats react to me and my wife if we were that small?” This resulted in the creation of these photos which depict giant cats in various cities.

The nocturnal, burrow-dwelling springhare is the latest addition to a growing list of biofluorescent furry critters that includes platypuses, flying squirrels, and potentially even Tasmanian devils, echidnas and wombats.

What is Covax?


So far, richer countries have been able to buy far more Covid jabs than poorer ones. The Covax scheme was set up by the WHO, the Gavi vaccines alliance and the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) to try to prevent poorer countries from being pushed to the back of the queue. 
 The programme is designed so that richer countries buying vaccines agree to help finance access for poorer nations, too. It hopes to deliver more than two billion doses to people in 190 countries in less than a year. In particular, it wants to ensure 92 poorer countries will receive access to vaccines at the same time as 98 wealthier countries. It aims to reach up to 20% of the populations of poorer countries, at no cost to their governments. Most African countries are intended recipients of Covax, but a number of them like Senegal have been making provisions for vaccines outside the initiative.
