Thursday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here with the best #Covid19 global analysis and round up available on Twitter.

First a little quiz, answer in the next Tweet:
Do you know which country has had the most recorded cases of Covid19 as a percentage of population?
So I hope there was no cheating... I'll leave some blank lines here too in case some later viewers don't want the answer just yet...

So the nation with more #Covid19 cases than any other based on population is highly vaccinated #Seychelles at more than 20% infected.
Today I spent quite a long time being filmed/interviewed by @bbcturkce about #Covid19 and #Turkey. Not sure how much they will use, let's see.

Coincidentally the cameraman Efe, just happened to be in Kyiv as one of those using Ukraine for a 10 day stop off to avoid hotel prison!

The daily #Coronavirus megathread for Tuesday starts early, from Manchester airport.

Because of the early start I missed a few countries from yesterday's thread, first I'll update these #Covid19 totals. Tweets during the day may be delayed due to travel & connectivity issues

PFIZERLEAK: EXPOSING THE PFIZER MANUFACTURING AND SUPPLY AGREEMENT.

(thread)

Background:
Pfizer has been extremely aggressive in trying to protect the details of their international COVID19 vaccine agreements.

Luckily, I've managed to get one.

#PfizerLeak
#Pfizer Image
Because the cost of developing contracts is very high and time consuming (legal review cycles), Pfizer, like all corporations, develop a standardized agreement template and use these agreements with relatively minor adjustments in different countries.

#PfizerLeak
#Pfizer
These agreements are confidential, but luckily one country did not protect the contract document well enough, so I managed to get a hold of a copy.

As you are about to see, there is a good reason why Pfizer was fighting to hide the details of these contracts.

Dr. Craig Jurisevic 🇦🇺 surgeon of 🇭🇷/ 🇸🇮 origin who was with #Albanian 🇦🇱 #KLA terrorists in #Kosovo in 1999. testified in this video about locations of Albanian surgeons in the cities of #Krume, #Elshani, and #Tirana which are related to the organ trafficking networks. ⤵️
Besides #Yugoslavia, he was working in #Israel and #Gaza, East Timor, and #Afghanistan. At the time when the organs of the Serbs were forcibly removed, the Australian surgeon Kreg Jurišević, who was fighting on the side of the KLA, was also situated in the area of #Kukes.⤵️
In 2010. he released a book on his experiences in #Albania and #Kosovo in 1999. by the name of Blood on My Hands: A Surgeon At War which has been on the best-seller list in Australia sometime after and where he witnessed himself shooting Serbian soldiers.

I have (finally) published a statistical analysis on possible voter manipulation in the 2021 Albanian parliamentary elections: wborici.org/is-there-evide….

See the recommendations section for more, but here are a few key highlights.

#Albania #AlbanianElections2021 #elections

1/
The turnout/ PS vote share 2D histogram, employed by political scientists and other researchers, shows no extreme fraud or coercive voting irregularities, such as vote rigging, at the most granular level of data -- polling stations.

This is good news.

2/
But, is there any indication of *voter* rigging?

I employed an information-theoretic metric to test my conjecture that the ruling PS may have engaged in voluntary voter manipulation (e.g. clientelism, other favoritism).

here a #Thread about #Albania #Communism #History #COLDWAR :

75 years ago Enver Hoxha turned Albania into a Stalinist development dictatorship
In 1946 the backward agricultural country Albania was re-established as a people's republic.

#BREAKING #Soviet
nzz.ch/international/…
The communists carried out the social experiment with tremendous cruelty. It ended in the country's total isolation.
Enver Hoxha will appear as chairman of a provisional government on Friday, January 11, 1946 in Tirana before the newly elected Constituent Assembly of Albania, which abolished the monarchy and proclaimed the People's Republic.

The presence of the #terrorist & intelligence arm of #QudsForce on Turkish soil. How #Turkey enables Iranians to operate as a central base country, for the logistical & operational operation of QF & #Iranian intelligence vis-à-vis target countries in Europe & the Middle East.

Iranian intelligence sees it as #Iran's "operational backyard" vis-à-vis the Middle East and Europe, as #Turkey has a number of clear advantages, including:
- proximity to Iran and relatively easy mobility of operatinal it and through it (air and land)
2
- Iranian citizens do not need a visa to enter the country
- This geographical location central and attractive holding secret meetings with #terrorist organizations throughout the world (Middle East, Europe, South East Asia)

To this date no one in four #WesternBalkan countries recieved a #CovidVaccine:

#BiH🇧🇦, #Kosovo🇽🇰, #Montenegro🇲🇪 & #NorthMacedonia🇲🇰

Many rightfully ask why

In #BiH, for example, authorities relied on #COVAX, #EU🇪🇺 procurement mechanism patience of citizens (?!)👇🏼
Following an agreement of BiH governments in charge for health matters by November 2020 state level authorities (kind of) finalised paperwork to be able to order 1,232,000 dosis of vaccines via #COVAX + 892.000 dosis via an #EU procurement mechanism.

balkaneu.com/bih-finalizes-…
Already in December 2020 authorities in #BiH made it clear they had no plans to try to negotiate, lobby & get vaccines via direct purchase. They defended their decision by claiming it is safer & cheaper (+legal) to wait & hoped citizens would be patient.

Sunday's #Coronavrus thread starts with developments in the #USA

Fewer testing centres open, fewer labs analysing results and fewer people wanting to be tested over the long holiday weekend, so as expected the drop in #Covid19 infections continues.

143,373 new cases, down 32k
There were signs the #Covid19 case load in #USA was about to naturally lower before Thanksgiving, so whether infections bounce back to previous levels remains to be seen.

Now a new worry as another mink outbreak is discovered in #Oregon

#Bulgaria and #Czechia continue to see case numbers fall

Bulgaria's finally getting good downward momentum with just 1,792 new #Covid19 infections overnight, down almost 500.

Czech Republic's fall is lower than of late, with 2,665 cases which is 522 fewer than last Sunday
