The Battle of Blair Mountain saw thousands of miners battling cops’ machine guns—and enduring aerial bombardment. Yet today hardly anyone remembers a thing about it.
University of Auckland microbiologist Siouxsie Wiles told Newsroom: “The question is, how much worse is Delta going to get?

Jemma Geoghegan, an evolutionary virologist at the University of Otago, expressed concern that just over half of the UK adult population has been vaccinated and that this could encourage new vaccine resistant variants to be produced.
She told Newsroom: “If you are going to train a virus to escape vaccine-induced immunity, you would do exactly what they’re doing.
“You’re basically providing a training ground for the virus to overcome those selection pressures. You’re allowing the virus to continue to spread.
“With this moderately immune population and with the Delta variant that has an R0 that’s estimated to be probably five or six, you need a threshold to be much, much, much higher than they currently have.”
