На протязі п'яти днів у Черкаській області не роблять жодного щеплення проти коронавірусу COVID-19
Водночас 10, 11, 12, 13 та 14 квітня в регіоні не зробили жодного щеплення проти COVID-19.
Черкаська область стала єдиним регіоном, де останнім часом, протягом кількох днів поспіль, не здійснювалася COVID-вакцинація.
Міністерство охорони здоров'я України рекомендувало не вводити Черкаську область в "червону" зону карантину
Про це повідомив голова Черкаської ОДА Олександр Скічко в Telegram.
Як відомо, "червона" зона буде вводитися на території регіону в разі наявності протягом 3 днів поспіль двох і більше таких ознак:
• завантаженість ліжок, забезпечених подачею медичного кисню в установах охорони здоров'я, визначених для госпіталізації пацієнтів з підтвердженим випадком COVID-19 - більше 65%;
• кількість тестувань методом ПЛР та швидкими тестами на визначення антигену коронавируса SARS-CoV-2 протягом останніх 7 днів на 100 тис. Населення - менше 300;
• кількість госпіталізованих пацієнтів з підтвердженим і підозрілим випадком COVID-19 протягом останніх 7 днів на 100 тис. Населення - понад 60;
• коефіцієнт виявлення випадків інфікування COVID-19 - більше 20%;
• рівень зростання загальної кількості госпіталізованих пацієнтів з підтвердженим і підозрілим випадком COVID-19 протягом останніх 7 днів в порівнянні з попереднім аналогічним періодом - більше 50%.
"Жовтий" рівень епідемічної небезпеки змінюється на "помаранчевий" при наявності в регіоні хоча б одного з цих ознак.

Scientists get more great looks at the 1st black hole ever photographed - Space.com
Observations of M87's monster black hole continue to roll in.
The supermassive black hole at the heart of the galaxy M87 is coming into sharper and sharper focus. Two years ago, astronomers with the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) project unveiled imagery of that black hole , which lies 55 million light-years from Earth and is as massive as 6.5 billion suns. Those photos were historic the first direct views of a black hole that humanity had ever captured. In the spring of 2017, as the EHT team was gathering some of the data that would result in the epic imagery, nearly 20 other powerful telescopes on the ground and in space were studying the M87 black hole as well. Related: Historic first images of a black hole show Einstein was right (again) A new study describes this huge and powerful data set, which contains observations across a wide range of wavelengths gathered by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope , Chandra X-ray Observatory, the Neil Gehrels Swift Observatory , the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) and Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope , as well as a number of other scopes. "We knew that the first direct image of a black hole would be groundbreaking," study co-author Kazuhiro Hada, of the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan, said in a statement . "But to get the most out of this remarkable image, we need to know everything we can about the black hole's behavior at that time by observing over the entire electromagnetic spectrum." That behavior includes the launching of jets, or beams of radiation and fast-moving particles rocketing outward from M87's black hole. Astronomers think such jets are the source of the highest-energy cosmic rays , particles that zoom through the universe at nearly the speed of light. The new data set gathers the results of the most intensive simultaneous observing campaign ever undertaken on a black hole with jets, study team members said. So, plumbing it could yield key insights into jet dynamics and the origins of cosmic rays, among other things. "Understanding the particle acceleration is really central to our understanding of both the EHT image as well as the jets, in all their 'colors,'" co-author Sera Markoff, an astrophysicist with the University of Amsterdam, said in the same statement. "These jets manage to transport energy released by the black hole out to scales larger than the host galaxy, like a huge power cord," Markoff said. "Our results will help us calculate the amount of power carried and the effect the black hole's jets have on its environment." M87's core in a variety of wavelengths.

The project gathers data only during a short window in the Northern Hemisphere spring each year, when the weather tends to be good at its various observing sites. Technical issues scuttled the 2019 campaign, and last year's was called off because of the coronavirus pandemic. As in previous years, the new EHT campaign will also include observations of the supermassive black hole at the heart of our own Milky Way galaxy, a 4.3-million-solar-mass object known as Sagittarius A* . The new data could be even more revealing, because the EHT recently added three big scopes to its network the Greenland Telescope, the Kitt Peak 12-meter Telescope in Arizona, and the Northern Extended Millimeter Array in France. "With the release of these data, combined with the resumption of observing and an improved EHT, we know many exciting new results are on the horizon," study co-author Mislav Baloković, of Yale University, said in the same statement. The new study, which gathers the work of 760 scientists and engineers from nearly 200 institutions across the globe, was published online Wednesday (April 14) in The Astrophysical Journal Letters .

Covid: Vaccination assurance is sweet music to national players' ears - The Sun Daily

KUALA LUMPUR: Its a huge weight off their shoulders. Thats how Harimau Malaya team manager Datuk Mohd Yusoff Mahadi described the national football players reaction to being guaranteed the Covid-19 vaccine jabs as they gear up for the three crucial 2022 World Cup/2023 Asian Cup second round qualifiers in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in June. Harimau Malaya team manager Datuk Mohd Yusoff Mahadi (pix) said the latest development had come as a relief for head coach Tan Cheng Hoes men ahead of their Group G matches against the UAE (June 3), Vietnam (June 11) and Thailand (June 15). In fact, Mohd Yusoff viewed the assurance on the team getting the vaccine jab had also boosted the players and officials confidence as they plan to leave for the UAE earlier for two friendly matches against Kuwait (May 23) and Bahrain (May 28). The health of our players is guaranteed. They can now go (to the UAE) with peace of mind and not worry or be concerned about being infected (by the virus). For us, it is very important that the national team are vaccinated before we leave for the UAE, he told Bernama today. Previously, it was rumoured that there was no guarantee the Harimau Malaya squad would get the COVID-19 vaccine jabs before they leave for the UAE, thus raising concern among the players and coaches. However, Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Seri Reezal Merican Naina Merican yesterday confirmed that all 78 individuals, including players and team officials, as well as Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) president Datuk Hamidin Mohd Amin would receive the first dose of the vaccine jab in Putrajaya on Monday (April 19). Meanwhile, Mohd Yusoff said more than 23 players would be called up to receive the first dose of the jab, adding that this would help in the management of the team, especially in terms of preparation, apart from giving them an ideal period of time to take action should any of the players suffer any side effects from the inoculation. The second dose will be given on May 10, 21 days after the first dose. So, we have more than a week after the second dose to see how they react to the vaccine before we fly off to the UAE on May 19, he said. Malaysia are well-placed to qualify for the 2023 Asian Cup Finals as they are currently second in the Group G standings of the 2022 World Cup/2023 Asian Cup Qualifiers after collecting nine points from five matches.- Bernama
Sony PS5 restock happening today — here's how to get your console - Tom's Guide
PS5 restock is back today at Sony Direct
After holding its first PS5 restock since March on Tuesday (April 13), Sony Direct will be offering customers eager to score a PS5 a second chance today (April 15) at 3 p.m ET/12 p.m. PT. The news was first broken by PS5 tracker Wario64, who received an official email from Sony itself confirming that a second PS5 restock is indeed planned for this week at Sony Direct. And it's now just hours away. Sony Direct PS5 restock PS5: $499 at Sony DirectThe flagship PS5 console includes a 4K UDH Blu-ray disc drive. As a result, the design is slightly fuller than the all-digital model. It sells for $499 and includes a PS5 DualSense controller.View Deal PS5 Digital: $399 @ Sony DirectThe PS5 Digital console lacks a 4K UDH Blu-ray disc drive. As a result, it's slightly thinner than its counterpart. It also sells for $399 ($100 less) and includes a PS5 DualSense controller.View Deal During Tuesday's restock, Sony Direct at first had an invite-only PS5 drop (info below on how to get yourself onto the invite list) but later in the day it opened the floodgates and allowed anyone into the queue to buy a console. We don't yet know if today's PS5 restock will follow the same pattern, but it's likely that the first wave will be reserved exclusively for people fortunate enough to be on Sony's VIP restock list, and then a second wave open to all will follow. Read on below for all the tips you need to be successful in this latest Sony Direct PS5 restock.

Keep in mind this trick doesn't guarantee you'll get an invite in time for Tuesday's PS5 drop, but it should increase your chances for the next exclusive Sony Direct PS5 restock event. (Image credit: Future) How to get a PS5 if you didn't receive an invite The last time Sony held an invite-only PS5 restock was back in mid-March. Minutes after the invite-only event wrapped up, Sony Direct opened a PS5 queue for the general public. We can't guarantee they'll do this again today, but times are rough, and if you want a PS5, it doesn't hurt to be online after the 12 p.m. PT event is over. Of course, you can bookmark our page and we'll keep you updated on the latest PS5 restock news from Sony Direct and all major U.S. retailers. What to do once you're in the queue Once you're on the virtual queue, you'll be given an estimated wait time. All wait times vary, and there's a good chance you'll have "more than an hour" wait. If that's the case, don't despair. Your status can rapidly change and you may have a shorter wait time than estimated. (For instance, after waiting 20 minutes on a previous PS5 restock event, our time was cut from "more than an hour" to just 15 minutes). Additionally, you may be required to solve a captcha. (A simple challenge/question to ensure you're not a bot). It usually requires that you select a radio box. As a result, you'll want to make sure your browser tab remains prominent, because if it's not you might miss your captcha challenge and you could forfeit your place in line. (Image credit: Future)
