Here's some good news for anyone who's already had coronavirus.⁠ ⁠ A study of 20,000 UK health workers found that prior coronavirus infection gave better than 94% protection against symptomatic reinfection, matching the figures for the most effective Covid-19 vaccines.⁠ ⁠ The researchers were also unable to assess the impact of the new and more contagious variant on rates of reinfection.⁠ ⁠ However, Susan Hopkins, PHE senior medical adviser, said she was 'strongly encouraged' by the finding that infection gave powerful — though not complete — protection against reinfection for at least five months.⁠ ⁠ 'It will give a level of immunity in the community that will reduce transmission,' she said.⁠ ⁠ You can read more about the study by tapping the link in our bio. #financialtimes #ft #covid_19 #coronavirus #infection #vaccine #science #research

Outgoing President Donald Trump plans to take up residence at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, and will fly there the morning of Joe Biden’s inauguration. Some White House staff are expected to follow him there and work for him or son-in-law Jared Kushner, according to the sources, who asked not to be identified because Trump hasn’t made the plans public and might change his mind. He may not get a warm welcome. Some Palm Beach neighbors have previously opposed his move-in plans. Click the link in bio to read more.

As much as Jeff Bezos wants to move toward drone delivery, the truth is Amazon can’t meet its shipping pledges without an ever-expanding fleet of jets. Last week the company announced it was buying 11 Boeing 767-300 jets for its air-cargo division, mostly to get products to Prime subscribers. That same day, Amazon Air flew 153 flights between 40 airports, from Germany to Southern California. The surge in online shopping fueled by the pandemic has strained resources for the likes of FedEx and the U.S. Postal Service, forcing Amazon to pick up the slack and the resulting costs. With its latest order, Amazon Air’s fleet — first launched under a veil of secrecy — will expand to 85 planes. Link in bio for more.

The formation that some rioters used while raiding the Capitol would be instantly recognizable to a U.S. soldier or Marine. It was a chilling sign that many at the vanguard of the mob that stormed the seat of American democracy either had military training or were trained by those who did. Experts in homegrown extremism have warned for years about efforts by far-right groups trying to radicalize and recruit people with this skill set. “ISIS and al-Qaida would drool over having someone with the training and experience of a U.S. military officer,” said Michael German, a former FBI agent and fellow with the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University. “These people have training and capabilities that far exceed what any foreign terrorist group can do. Foreign terrorist groups don’t have any members who have badges.” Tap the ink in bio for more. 📷: Lev Radin/Getty Images

“Happiness” is not a destination. It’s a state of mind, and you don’t need to be in it every moment of every day. Not only is that impossible, but it’s also unhealthy. https://t.co/raTNMC44QK

Call for a $15 minimum wage.

During this Pandemic, we've been limping along and in the red every month. I've been having to put in personal cash every month to cover payroll ($13 an hour for 3 employees) but if the minimum wage is raised to $15 I will be even more fucked. My business is located in Memphis where rent is can be as low as 600 bucks for a decent apartment. I'm already paying a super generous wage given the business type and for the COL in the city. I really don't know what to do. I don't want to cut hours but I'm not going to have a choice.
