15 million? Estimated COVID-19 deaths more than double official toll

Published

on

The World Health Organisation has given a grim insight into the full scale of devastation caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, with almost 15 million excess deaths associated with the virus up until the end of 2021

In what is the most comprehensive look into deaths associated with the pandemic so-far… the mortality figures include both people who died of COVID-19 and those who died as an indirect result of the disease.

The tally also accounts for lives that were “saved” during the pandemic’s peak, due to factors such as lower risk of traffic accidents during lockdowns.

The death toll of 15 million comes as a result of high mortality rates in poorer nations previously not accounted for.

Even before the Covid-19 pandemic, the WHO says six in 10 deaths around the world are not registered.

The top health body says most of the unreported Covid deaths came from India, suggesting 4.7 million people died in the nation as a result of the pandemic, with a major surge between May and June 2021.

The Indian government continues to report the nation’s death toll at around 480,000.

Why Australia is becoming the new home of the Hollywood blockbuster

Published

on

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%

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.
