More than 250 Ukrainian fighters surrendered to Russian forces at the Azovstal steelworks in Mariupol after weeks of desperate resistance, bringing an end to the most devastating siege of Russia's war in Ukraine and allowing President Vladimir Putin to claim a rare victory in his faltering campaign. Even as the Kremlin prepares to take full control of the ruins of Mariupol, it faces the growing prospect of defeat in its bid to conquer all of Ukraine's eastern Donbas because its badly mauled forces lack the manpower for significant advances, some analysts of the Russian campaign said. Seven buses carrying Ukrainian fighters from the Azovstal garrison arrived at a newly reopened prison in the Russian-controlled town of Olenivka near Donetsk, a Reuters witness said.

An algorithm to identify people most at risk of dying from COVID when being treated in a hospital has been developed by scientists. The COVID-19 Disease Outcome Predictor (CODOP) will help to give early warning to doctors about who needs critical care. The system uses 12 blood molecules which are normally collected in hospital when a patient is admitted - meaning the algorithm should be easy to adopt by health care systems across the world.
