This #news was broadcasted live by the Swedish public tv @SVT on the 12th of April morning show.
The headline: “Theory: mafia stirs part of the vaccination plan”.

Why in #Italy no-one had the #scoop?
Simple: it's #FakeNews /thread
But how Sveriges Television could mislead his public stating the mafia control @Palazzo_Chigi's vaccination campaign.

Correspondent from Italy @JenniferWegerup answers this is no news to Italians, because they largely expected it.
As they all live in the Godfather's Corleone. Francis Ford Coppola "The Godfather" movie cover
Wegerup claims: “In a tapping one of the regional medical staff say ‘We can vaccinate even your cat if you want’ to a person connected to the mafia”.

Is it true? No. That's an old news of a doctor who vaccinated family, friends and "cats".
And charged with everything but #mafia!

Dear @ADL, this is not a 'white nationalist' conspiracy theory, nor is it anti-Semitic. And the truth is: the west is under attack by its own governments and the global elite. For profit, of course. And to genocide a people.
...and Biden. Apparently POTUS is a anti-Semite and a conspiracy theorist, too.
Is it anti-Semitic to post this?

#Italy has a big problem.

The decision to put teachers, academics etc on the front line of the vaccination campaign with all those who came along (lawyers, white collars and all sorts of “furbetti”) has a huge cost in terms of #Covid deaths.

#coronavirus via @udogumpel
Ps. Just a personal example.

My mother and my aunt (under 60) got their first #Covid jab before my 4 grandparents (age range 91-80), also due to a less centralised - and disruptive - vaccination roll-out.

#Italy #Coronavirus 🇮🇹
And actually (forgot to say) just 2 out of 4 grandparents have been vaccinated yet... while all their children have instead.

In many ways, the outskirts of Rome are more spectacular than the ancient city itself.

From 2,000 year old roads to towering aqueducts, follow this thread to join 4 archaeologists on a long-overdue walk along the beautiful Via Appia!

#rome #archaeology #ClassicsTwitter #italy
The Via Appia Antica, or Appian Way, is one of the earliest examples of a Roman highway. Beginning in the Roman Forum, it runs southeast all the way to the southern Italian city of Brindisi on the Adriatic Coast!

But we’re starting our walk much closer to home!
Even though Rome’s strict #COVID lockdown has been partially lifted for a few short days, we’re still not permitted to leave the commune.

That means our trip along the Appian Way has to begin at the inconspicuous Capannelle Station, as far afield as we’re allowed!

NEW -- Donors at #SyriaConf2021 have pledged a total of $6.4bn.

That's an enormous $3.6bn short of what the @UN needs to meet the increasing humanitarian needs in #Syria.
@UN A few more pledges for #Syria:

#EU: $657m
#Saudi: $560m
#Sweden: $97m
#Italy: $52m
#UAE: $30m

And a note on the $6.4bn total -- that's multi-year pledges. For 2021 alone, the figure is $4.2bn, less than half of what's needed.

#SaudiArabia declared its #Yemen's "initiative" to the press but never discussed it with the Yemenite.
Saudi did not declare this media-initiative to please the #US administration because Biden's envoy came to #Oman to discuss with Ansar Alllah the advance toward Marib.
To be clear, the #US negotiators were negotiating on behalf of #SaudiArabia, trying to dictate their conditions on Ansar Allah as if the Saudis were winning the war (the reality is the opposite).
Ansar Allah negotiators are aware of the US tactics +
Actually, we see a #US administration leaving and another coming in but they all follow a book in their wars: what is impossible to gain on the ground using military power, is worth trying using sanctions or humanitarian aids to recover the losses.+

THREAD: in fact, one of the worst aspects of #QE is that, by carrying a huge size bias, it is the ultimate anticompetition clause: only the big can access money.(/) @Halsrethink @nglinsman @bondstrategist @DiMartinoBooth @dlacalle_IA @amlivemon @DavidBCollum
If you are an established company with a medium to big balance sheet, you not only can afford the paperwork (internal ratings, anyone?), but YOUR risk premium is compressed by Central Banks.(/)
Meanwhile, smaller companies and prospective new entrants cannot and will not find funding, since at that earlier stage there is a level of "funding cost incompressibility" given the risks involved.(/)

Sunday's #Coronavirus megathread will, as always, be updated throughout the day with news, data and analysis.

Few paid attention while we warned of rising #Covid19 cases in the Balkans then central Europe. Now everyone's concerned as big nations suffer.

Come inside folks!
And I'll start with Europe's biggest nation (in population), #Germany

A further 27% rise in #Covid19 cases confirmed overnight with 10,572 new infections for Saturday vs 8,311 the week before.
#Brazil's been the focus of much attention of late as deaths soar.

The number of people who were reported to have died of #Covid19 yesterday actually dipped, but only because it's the weekend. In fact 1,940 deaths is 30% higher than last Saturday's 1,498

New cases: 70,934 (+5%)

The daily #Coronavirus thread is underway.

If Friday turned out to be fearful, we can only hope it's not a shocking Saturday.

More and more countries and regions heading back into lockdown as #Covid19 spreads quicker then the vaccines.

And already today new record - read on..
The first record to report is from crisis-torn #Brazil

For the 3rd successive day over 2,000 deaths.
But it's new #Covid19 cases rewriting the record books today with 84,047 positive tests, that's 12% more than the week before

2,152 more deaths takes total fatalities over 275k
Almost a record for #Norway too tonight.

905 new #Covid19 infections diagnosed in the last 24 hours, just 25 below the national record. Today's total is 31% up on the previous week.

Over 300 more Covid patients have been admitted to hospital in the last 2 days alone.

A year since #Italy was first country in west crushed by #Covid, it's hit a third wave - and large swathes are closing again: nationwide red zone (shutting shops, restaurants, schools) over Easter and from Monday, many regions will shut, likely including Lombardy & Lazio. Bleak.
PM Draghi lays out the challenges: cases last week were 15% up from the previous one. And 650 more intensive care patients in the past fortnight. Rate of vaccinations is gradually quickening: March doses so far roughly double rate of Jan and Feb. But Italy still below EU average
A month ago, Italy's and the UK's rates of cases were at the same level. Look at the trajectory since then.

#Italy is NOT going to produce and distribute #SputnikV in the #EU. At least, not the "10 million doses starting from July" that have been mistakenly reported by many Italian & intl' media. Here's a brief thread to clarify a few things.
Yes, the Italian-Swiss pharmaceutical Adienne signed a contract with the Russian sovereign fund after participating in a competition involving other European companies. But the vaccine will be produced in Italy only after the authorization of AIFA, the Italian drug agency.
As for its sale in the EU, the @EMA_News's ok is needed, otherwise the company can only sell it outside Europe. In the words of Antonio Di Naro, president of Adienne: "We are not producing candies, here! We must have the necessary time and authorizations".…

Adienne Pharma & Biotech, based in Switzerland, will manufacture Russia's Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine in Italy, marking the first European production contract for the Russian vaccine.
According to Italian news agency Adnkronos, the business and the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) have signed an agreement in this regard, citing the Italian-Russian Chamber of Commerce.
The company will be able to begin production in July and manufacture 10 million doses by the end of 2021 under the terms of the agreement. On March 4, the European Medicines Agency (EMA), the European Union's drug regulator, announced that it had begun reviewing Sputnik V.

Now they stood ready, many of them clad in the uniforms of their sentiments, showing flags, armed and determined to attack the hated symbols of parliamentary order. And so they stormed off.
The scene occurred almost a century ago, in October 1922, in Rome. And the coup d'état of the Black Shirts succeeded. Impressed by the march on Rome, King Victor Emanuel III. on October 30, 1922 the leader of the fascists, Benito Mussolini, with the formation of a new government.

On 24 March 2020, the Financial Times claimed that as much as half of the #British population may have already been infected by the novel #Coronavirus, according to a new model by #Oxford University’s Evolutionary Ecology of Infectious Disease group.
The conclusion, according to the FT’s science editor Clive Cookson, suggested that the country “had already acquired substantial herd immunity through the unrecognised spread of #COVID-19 over more than two months”. If true, this would vindicate the Govt’s “unofficial
Herd immunity strategy – allowing controlled spread of infection,” he stated
Although numerous #epidemiologists and #scientists had questioned the validity of the #Oxford model – which had not been peer-reviewed – it was promoted to the press by a PR agency with ties to the #Gov
