A photo of celebration cake presented to 🇨🇺Cuban pitcher #RaidelMartinez by his #ChunichiDragons teammates with an imprint saying “NO ASYLUM SEEKING” as inside joke causes an uproar in Japan for obvious reasons. The photo was posted by #ChunichiShinbun, the team’s owner company.…
A closeup of the cake posted by the cake’s baker. It says: “Congratulations on making the 100 saves. NO ASYLUM-SEEKING, EVER.” The baker baked as ordered but has absolutely no clue what is wrong with the message they imprinted. Instead, they’re proud to have been selected.
On the backdrop of all this was this incident which happened only a couple of month ago.

#ChunichiDragons athlete and another 🇨🇺Cuban, #YarielRodriguez, sought asylum to the 🇩🇴#DominicanRepublic and actually ‘defected’ (in baseball terms) in hopes of signing up with the MLB.…… Image

Wednesday's #Covid19 megathread makes an early start as there's so much news to bring you!

#Omicron takes centre stage in Europe with a raft of records (recap coming up), but #UK ministers are increasingly confident the NHS won't be swamped despite England's lack of restrictions
It turned out to be a terrible Tuesday, not just in #UK, which was just one of TEN European countries to hit all time high daily #Covid19 infection numbers.

#Cyprus #France #Greece #Iceland #Italy #Malta #Montenegro #Portugal and #Spain the others to set new records.
Concern in #Norway. The #Omicron wave looked to be beyond the peak; is it making a comeback or is it still delayed Christmas cases?
4,702 new #Covid19 infections, fewer than 100 down on last Weds.

Better health data. 315 in hospital, down 13 since y'day, although 120 are in ICU

He was born a French slave, he became a Spanish General and he commanded an all Black American militia in Florida. He was the real Django Unchained. His name is George "Jorge" Biassou. Haitian know him as #wapkonjoj Thread 1/17
Imagine a time where you felt slavery was so brutal w/ the French, that you felt necessary to align yourself w/ the Spaniards who also believed in slavery b/c you had a common enemy. That is exactly what happened in colony of St. Domingue at beginning of #HaitianRevolution 2/17
Biasson was son of slaves in world's most lucrative colony of Saint-Domingue (now Haiti). The French slave owners were notoriously brutal. In 1791, thousands of abused slaves rose up and poured out their fury onto them. 3/17…

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!

At today's WHO Member States Information Session, Vice Health Minister @iverene presented on the #COVID19 pandemic response in 🇩🇴, and indicators used to monitor & control the outbreak. To mitigate economic impacts, 🇩🇴 has gradually opened up after a lockdown.
The #DominicanRepublic’s #COVID19 response reflects the highest political leadership commitment, private-public sector collaboration & partnership with WHO. 🇩🇴 has focused on strengthening contact tracing, surveillance & infection prevention & control measures.
We thank the government of #DominicanRepublic for following the WHO guidance and the Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan in their national response, and for taking part in the WHO Solidarity Trail.

Dominican Republic girls have a very high risk of not surviving during the abortion. Doctors will require a consent form for the women to have a decision for the women.#Njcurj #MyBodyMyRight's
Hospitals are not taken good care on their services on having girls who are going to do abortion and girls who are having their baby’s all in the same room #illegal #DominicanRepublic #NeedSolutionNeedRegularisation
Girls do not have power over their body’s choices. The lawmakers in the Dominican Republic have mentioned that every man should decide whether the girl should have an abortion or not.#Njcurj #lawmakers #socialchange

@antonioguterres @UN_Spokesperson @StephDujarric @MatthewLeeICP @FUNCA_info @silas_atefor @AdamShawNY @SaraCarterDC @kristina_wong @allimadi Even after throwing investigative Inner City Press out of the UN, SG @AntonioGuterres can't handle softball questions. He canceled press conference on Jan 20, then now on Jan 28 (afraid of being overshadowed by Trump's Middle East plan). #pathetic

This retraction by @AlJazeera actually raises more questions than answers, and to my mind at least, brings to the fore, the fact that our Federal Republic of Anyhowness, has gone global...
Yesterday, asides @AlJazeera_World, other news outlets, including the Twitter only news outlet, @spectatorindex said that #Nigeria's ambassador had attended the opening of the American Embassy in #Jerusalem.
Isreali outlets such at @TimesofIsrael and @HamodiaIL also ran with the news. @haaretzcom actually went so far as to publish an infograph that included #Nigeria's name as one of the country's "celebrating with them" on the grand new opening...
