  1. Gender in the time of COVID-19: Evaluating national leadership and COVID-19 fatalities
    Culture matters more than a leader’s gender in how a nation survives a global pandemic, according to a study.

  4. Missing again: US racial and ethnic data for COVID-19 vaccination
    Among the 12 928 749 people who initiated vaccination against COVID-19 (ie, received at least one dose of vaccine) during the first month of the US vaccine roll-out (Dec 14, 2020, to Jan 14, 2021), data for race and ethnicity were missing for 48·13% of people, despite the reporting form prominently indicating that data for race and ethnicity are required. These data are essential to ensure that the vaccine roll-out meets stated standards and maintains equity in vaccine access and vaccine confidence. Source: The Lancet
