Indeed. The fisheries issue is a red herring, if you'll pardon the pun.

If there is #NoDealBrexit it will not be because of a dispute over fish, as the UK media is suggesting, but because of UK's refusal to follow some LPF rules in exchange for tariff-free access to EU market.
There is a reason the UK briefs as if fisheries is the main stumbling bloc. It's a very small (though very emotional) part of the economy and the EU's stance is not very sympathetic. But it's a side issue.

LPF and governance goes to the heart of what #Brexit will and won't be.
The UK side doesn't want to talk about LPF because it highlights the lack of thinking that went into the #Brexit plan before the referendum.

#Norway & #Switzerland were used as examples, but then after the vote their models were immediately ruled out because they're rule-takers.

"With the latest positive news from vaccine trials, the light at the end of this long, dark tunnel is growing brighter.

There is now real hope that vaccines – in combination with other tried and tested public health measures – will help to end the #COVID19 pandemic"-@DrTedros

Records galore.... it's super Saturday in the #Coronavirus megathread.

I'll start though with some stunning new records and frightening totals late Friday evening and overnight, as the battle against #Covid19 continues...
*** BREAKING ***

The global record of 643,000 new #Covid19 cases in a day has been beaten again. It's now 654,000

And #USA has yet again smashed the world record for a single country. Yesterday it was just over 160,000, but now it's an astonishing 181,000
Good news for #Germany
They managed to just avoid a new national #Covid19 record by just 250 cases.

Just 4% up on the same time last week, and with cases dropping off over the weekend, I am certain Germany won't set a new record now.

Two variants of the Sars-CoV-2 coronavirus have occurred in Norway that have not yet been detected in the country. The health authority FHI is now investigating whether these variants can be transferred more quickly.
Department head Line Vold told Norwegian broadcaster NRK that analysis of the genetic material showed that the two types are very similar.
The one variant, which had already occurred in Australia and other European countries, spread according to the report in a bus with seniors who had made a tour of Norway in September. 36 of the 40 passengers were infected,

Children represent a very small percentage of total cases. The majority of infections in children are asymptomatic or very mild and go undetected and undiagnosed. There might be actually a higher prevalence of childhood cases than the data reflects. 1/n…
We need to look at immunity indicator such as antibodies and T Cells to gauge better the extent of infections in the younger population. 2/n
That said infection in the young is not a bad thing. It is a good thing actually!
The young can act as immunity shields for the elderly. The more young people get COVID19 and become immune, the more they will break transmission to the older more vulnerable generation. 3/n

#Norway #Oslo #Coronavirus

Norway was one of the first countries in Europe to introduce a corona warning app in the spring - now the government in Oslo wants to launch a successor.
Health Minister Bent Høie announced on Monday that the new app should replace its predecessor "Smittestopp", which was put on hold due to data protection concerns. This time it should only be used for digital infection tracking, but not centrally store data.
The whole thing should be based on international solutions from Google and Apple, on which, according to Norwegian information, the German warning app is based.
