Airlines expect great interest in traveling to the US
On Monday, after twenty months, the United States opens its borders to foreigners with two doses of vaccination. The ban on former President Donald Trump affected the lives of citizens in 30 countries, divided families and hampered tourism. Now airlines expect an influx of passengers.
The new rules require the submission of proof of vaccination, passing a test with a negative result and providing contact details. Arrivals do not have to go through quarantine. Sixty-three-year-old British Alison Henry is planning to take advantage of renewed travel to New York on the first day, according to AFP. “It was so hard, I just want to see my son,” she told the agency.
Germany reports the highest weekly increase since the beginning of the pandemic
In Germany, an average of 201.1 new cases of coronavirus infection per 100,000 people have been detected in the last week, the most since the onset of the pandemic. The previous record of 197.6 is from last December 22, when the second wave of the pandemic culminated. Germany has recorded 15,513 new cases in the last day.
Unlike last year, a large percentage of the population is vaccinated this year. Even so, health workers fear that if the number of new infections grows at this rate, hospitalizations in intensive care units will increase rapidly. In the last day after the covid infection, 33 people died, the total balance is 96,558 victims. The worst situation is currently in the federal states neighboring the Czech Republic.
Poland has confirmed the legality of abortion in the event of a threat to the mother’s life
On Sunday, the Polish Ministry of Health issued instructions to doctors confirming that abortion is legal if a woman’s health or life is in danger. According to the Office, doctors do not have to worry about making decisions based on their experience and available medical knowledge.
The ministry thus responded to a recently publicized case of a woman who was allegedly refused by doctors to perform surgery in the 22nd week of pregnancy despite amniotic fluid leakage. Her family and lawyers say paramedics waited for the fetus to die on its own. However, the woman received a septic shock, which she succumbed to. The prosecutor’s office is investigating their actions. The case sparked a new wave of protests and criticism of the country’s strict abortion rules.
From markets and stock exchanges
Twitter asks for sales
Tesla owner Elon Musk knows the result of a twitter vote on the sale of ten percent of the company’s shares. Of the three and a half million participants, 58 percent supported the plan. The value of the share packages is estimated at $ 21 billion. “I was ready to accept the result,” Musk said after the poll.
The businessman launched it in response to criticism for not paying a fair share of taxes at a time when a bill was conceived in the US Congress to tax billionaires’ property to help fund President Joe Biden’s social and climate programs.
This is not Musek’s only special step in using Twitter to make property decisions. He recently wrote on this social network that he would give six billion dollars to the UN if he could credibly explain to him in a twitter thread how to solve the famine with them.
Increased supplies of Russian gas to Europe are not flowing yet
Recent developments do not indicate that Russian President Vladimir Putin intends to deliver on his promise to send more gas to Europe from November 8.
