Can the coronavirus epidemic ever be over? People are now ready to have a good time and go on holiday after a difficult year and half of lockdowns. Despite the numerous vaccinations, we find ourselves back in the past due to rising infections. What’s the latest? Check out the latest Covid news.
A corona card will soon be required to enter a restaurant or bar in Italy as part of the fight against the corona wave. From August 6, proof that you have been vaccinated or recently tested will be required for all stadiums, gyms and swimming pools. It also applies to museums, theatres, concerts, trade fairs, cinemas, cinemas, and theaters.
It is the government of Italy that wants to stop the rise in corona infections by offering the green pass. The certificate can either be in digital form or written. According to Draghi, the health pass allows Italians to “continue their activities with the assurance that they will not become contagious,” said Draghi, Prime Minister of Italy.
The government will support discos, although they will remain closed.
Online appointments can be made for vaccinations or corona tests. Ddos attacks on a supplier caused the system to go down on Thursday. But, it is now safe.
DDOs were also attacked on Wednesday. Due to this, users were unable log in with DigiD data to the GGD. People were unable to schedule a new appointment and could not view their test results. Although it was possible to schedule an appointment online, most people were unable to do so.
The supplier affected will inform the authorities. The GGD organization said, “And if that helps, it will certainly not be failed to do so.”
The 4 million vaccines for Covid-19 that have been donated to countries in the European Union have been used by countries so far. This represents less than 3% percent of the 160,000,000 vaccines that would have to be donated in order to end the pandemic. Documents from the EU show this. It concerns AstraZeneca doses.
The European Union has made a commitment to assist vulnerable people in the world with vaccinations, but vaccines have only been bought to benefit its own citizens. The various pharmaceutical companies have given approximately 500 million doses to the members of the union. This is enough vaccines for 70 percent of adults. The EU has a lower percentage. South Africa was able to vaccine 7 percent of its population once, while Nigeria has only managed 1 percent.
Brussels had previously stated that at least 100,000,000 vaccines should be donated by the end this year. Most of the 4 million vaccines that have reached poorer countries have gone to former colonies. Suriname, for example, has had about 250,000 AstraZeneca shots from the Netherlands. There will eventually be between 500,000 and 750,000.
Although the World Health Organization (WHO), called on Western countries and other countries to donate their vaccines through the international Covax program to the poorer countries, there has not been much progress despite repeated calls from the European Commission to accelerate donations. AstraZeneca, Janssen and in lesser amounts, Janssen are the vaccines that are being donated. Due to the potential for rare, but potentially dangerous side effects, these vaccines are rarely used in many EU countries.
Contrary to the United States, donations from the European Union are quite different. Over 15 million vaccines were sent to Latin America, Asia, Africa and Africa over the last month. The US has committed to giving away 80 million vaccines through Covax.
EU documents indicate that Germany will donate 33 million vaccines by August. Of these, 30 million will be AstraZeneca. France has committed to donating 60 million vaccines, mainly to Covax. This country has so far donated 800,000. These vaccines have been mostly given to former colonies, such as Senegal and Mauritania. According to the French Ministry of Finance spokesperson, Covax has received nearly 5 million AstraZeneca vaccinations. Janssen and Pfizer vaccines will be added at the end the summer.
