Since the arrival of Covid-19 vaccines , a crucial but largely unspoken question has loomed large for countries looking towards returning to pre-pandemic life: How much sickness and death will occur even after nearly everybody has been jabbed? Possible answers to that question are coming into view as a growing number of territories get close to their maximum vaccination rates. Although varying considerably, the emerging picture points to a post-vaccinated future in which societies may have to accept significantly more Covid-19 deaths than those caused by the flu to move beyond restrictions such as lockdowns and border closures.

Apple is "concerned that strict ... » Learn More about iPhones may need redesign as EU pushes for common charger
