JUST IN: Jacinda Ardern (@jacindaardern), #NewZealand's Prime Minister stated on Monday that her government will not be pursuing any efforts to convert New Zealand to a republic following the death of #QueenElizabethII.
Ardern said she thought New Zealand would eventually become a republic, and that it would most likely happen within her lifetime, but that her government had more pressing issues to address.
Her remarks are the first time she has addressed the New Zealand republic debate since Elizabeth's death, while she has previously stated her support for the country becoming a republic.

This excellent report by @kathrynsbach is very sobering. Every country, especially those who have let #Covid rip, can expect major economic damage because of #LongCovid. But as a survivor of a historical epidemic that triggered mass #MECFS I think there's plenty more to come. A🧵
2/ What governments worldwide don't yet seem to realise is that - even if the pandemic ends tomorrow, and not a single extra person falls victim to #LongCovid henceforth - the damage to people's lives & entire economies will likely snowball significantly over time.
3/ They don't realise this yet because governments worldwide have collectively ignored #MECFS etc for decades. They've failed to learn from previous viral epidemics that have triggered long-term disability, because they've failed to track adverse health outcomes longitudinally.

UK now has #polio being found repeatedly in its wastewater.
Now's a good time to review your family's vaccination status. Whooping cough, tetanus, measles, mumps rubella, varicella, etc.
If it's going to be a return to the bad old days make sure you're prepared.
The reason I say this, is that vaccination rates are dropping in communities everywhere. #NewZealand rates are atrocious.
There will likely be more #measles outbreaks this year. 1/1000 kids who get it will die, 1000 will be brain damaged. It's vaccine-preventable.
With #polio historically a very infectious, easily transmitted, and super common disease of poverty and the unvaccinated, infants and kids are at risk.
The vast majority of infected will recover fine...and a few will be severely paralyzed for life.
Easily vaccine-prevented tho.

As a result of my over 25 years investigating the Russian Orthodox Church in USSR/Russia and the current head of the Russian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Kirill, I have come to the conclusion that the Russian Orthodox Church has worked as a state-run money laundry for decades. Image
The church could launder their money and that of the Orthodox oligarch and other Russian oligarchs through Swiss Bank accounts and transfers to off shore accounts with the help of Swiss accountants and businessmen, a couple of them have known the Patriarch for years
and one of these businessmen gave him a chalet back in the 1970s.
Otherwise when directly asked about his palaces, luxury cars, yachts and jets the Patriarch says they are all owned by the Russian Orthodox Church. This is to be expected.

Le lièvre et la tortue…
Le but semblant encore lointain,
le 🐰🇳🇿 devrait rattraper la 🐢🇯🇵.
On a pourtant un 🐰🇳🇿 très désavantagé avec ses 17% de plus de 65 ans contre 29% pour la 🐢🇯🇵.
Mais ces 2 pays ne jouent pas dans la même division que #Pfizerland ou les autres grands précurseurs #Pfizer.
A noter le curieux rattrapage effectué par le #Chili pour s'aligner pile poil sur les #USA.
Ces stats "Covid" ne cessent jamais de surprendre.

Bizarrement, la #NouvelleZélande communique très peu sur les taux de vaccination, et il faut aller compiler les données d'un fichier XL pour trouver les infos par tranche d'âge.
Ils n'ont pourtant pas lésiné sur le booster…🤔

#China today has city-wide #Covid lockdowns in place in #Shenzhen (12.5 million people), #Dongguan (10.5 million), #Langfang (5.5 million) + a province-wide lockdown in #Jilin (24 million residents). Also quasi-lockdown provisions, in #Shanghai (26 million) & #Xian (13 million).
In addition, there are #Covid restrictions in cities right across #China from localised housing community lockdowns to the closure of bars and restaurants, schools shifting to online classes etc. Many cities also carrying out mass testing.
As #China’s officials continue to pursue a “zero-#Covid” strategy aiming for elimination in each outbreak, there’re more than 50 million residents under strict, stay at home, lockdown today. Then add those under softer “quasi-lockdown” measures that’s more like 90 million people.
