U.S. marks 700,000 lives lost from COVID-19

Church bells rang 700 times to represent the lives taken by the virus

The U.S. has reached a milestone, tallying 700,000 deaths from COVID-19.

Washington National Cathedral bells rang 700 times on Tuesday to commemorate the lives lost, a number greater than the population of Boston.

The last 100,000 deaths comes in the last three and a half months, after the U.S. population has been largely vaccinated, with vaccines available to any American over the age of 12.

70 million eligible Americans remain unvaccinated despite vaccines being available to all for the past six months.

U.S. President Joe Biden says Americans must not become “numb to the sorrow”.

“On this day, and every day, we remember all those we have lost to this pandemic and we pray for their loved ones left behind who are missing a piece of their soul,” he says.

President Biden emphasises the importance of getting vaccinated saying it has helped to reduce the severity of the virus.

“Hundreds of thousands of families have been spared the unbearable loss that too many Americans have already endured during this pandemic.”

Infectious Disease Epidemiologist at John Hopkins school of Public Health Dr David Dowdy says 70 per cent of those 100,000 deaths were in unvaccinated people.

“If we had been more effective in our vaccination, then I think it’s fair to say, we could have prevented 90 percent of those deaths,” Dr Dowdy says.

Why Australia is becoming the new home of the Hollywood blockbuster

Published

Australia’s multimillion-dollar campaign to attract Hollywood productions to its shores appears to be paying off.

The allure of Australia lies not only in its picturesque locations but also in its competitive financial incentives.

The government offers generous rebates and tax breaks to international productions, making it an attractive proposition for filmmakers looking to maximise their budgets.

Despite the recent intake of Hollywood productions down under such as ‘The Fall Guy’ and ‘Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga’, Aussie independents are still finding the space to carve their own creative path.

Rob Fantozzi joined the program to discuss the latest in Hollywood, and showcased his own upcoming project – ‘Omerta‘. #featured

U.S. home prices surge 47%

Published

American home prices are rising at faster pace now than in the last 20-years.

A recent analysis reveals a jaw dropping surge in the cost of American homes.

Since the start of 2020, U.S. home prices have surged 47% easily outstripping the gains seen in recent decades.

On top of that, home price growth so far this decade is on the verge of surpassing all the growth seen in the 2000s.

Many experts believe this decade’s housing market frenzy was ignited by a perfect storm — the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic triggering an unprecedented rush among buyers.

Tom Hutchens, the Executive Vice President of Production at Angel Oak Mortgage Solutions joins Veronica Dudo to discuss.
