Due to the #COVID19 pandemic, 2⃣3⃣ million children 👦👧 missed out on basic vaccines through routine immunization services in 2020, increasing by 3.7 million and the highest number since 2009.

More data from WHO & @UNICEF 👉
Without high childhood vaccination rates, countries face risks of multiple disease outbreaks. Spread of diseases like #measles, polio or meningitis could be catastrophic for countries already battling #COVID19.

👉 #VaccinesWork
Up to 1⃣7⃣ million children likely did not receive a single vaccine during last year.

Most of these children 👧👦 live in conflicted-affected communities, slum areas or under-served remote places. 👉

1/X - So #Pakistan is under review for "downgrade" to Frontier index. Personally I think it would be a good move. At 2bps of MSCI EM it will continue to be ignored. A few observations on MSCI Frontier Index and its use:
#EmergingMarkets #FrontierMarkets
2/X - There is a structural flaw in the algorithm deciding country weights. As opposed to MSCI EM where 50% free float is required, in FM index a mere 7,5% free-float is required. Not a brilliant idea as it gives a higher weight to "zombie markets" with zero liquidity.
3/X - It is ridiculous that #Bangladesh with >150 musd a day has 1/3 of the weight of #Kenya with 6 musd.

1/ Southeast #Asian countries edging closer to the #US

A fear of #China encroaching on territory pushes a number of countries to improve ties with the #US

#Philippines & #Malaysia are now edging closer to the US.…
2/ Throughout the past decade, Vietnam has been the only Southeast Asian nation that has consistently welcomed warmed ties with the West to counterbalance China. But other regional claimant states could soon do the same.
3/ After months of tough negotiations, Manila is set to retain the crucial Philippine-US Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA), which is essential to sustained and large-scale American military deployments to Southeast Asia.

Thanks so much for everyone who contributed yesterday, if you have no idea what I'm on about here's another sneaky link to my crowdfunder!

It's a quite start today following the flurry of news last night..…
So a lot of data and a couple of new stories came in during the last hour or so of Friday, including South America data.

You can catch up on #Argentina #Brazil #Colombia #Bulgaria #Norway stats, and some #OlympicGames news by clicking and scrolling ⬇️

Now more very concerning news from #Bahrain, one of the most vaccinated territories on the planet.

#Covid19 cases are still rising there - more worrying is the real increase in deaths too.

10 Predictions About The Future of #Telcoin

#SendMoneySmarter $TEL Image
#Telcoin represents a look at the future of #fintech, #crypto, and the way people view efficiency, security and convenience with regard to many aspects of managing their money and investments.
Sadly, many newcomers to $TEL have little vision, depth of understanding, or patience when it comes to what #Telcoin has been building... and what's coming next.

These are my predictions for those needing perspective and patience.

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%)

Earlier this week, I entered into an interesting discussion on a supposed series of visions and devotions, propagated by a 'seer' named Maria Divine Mercy.

The Church in Ireland and even authorities abroad have condemned the messages as being inconsistent with Catholic doctrine.
Yet, people continue to promote, follow, and practice the visions and devotions associated with MDM: prayers, "seals", medals, and so forth.

The excuses often given are that the Pope is not the Pope, the bishops have lost their authority, and that solely Christ and Mary...
...(by means of the questionable visionary) are able to provide the truth.

Even for non-believing peoples, this should seem very questionable, and yet followers of the Irish 'seer', MDM, are emphatic that they alone know the truth.

After reading sources from bishops and even...

President #Duterte says no vaccine rollout, no MGCQ

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte has refused to place the entire #Philippines under the least restrictive modified general community quarantine (#MGCQ) until after the government kicks off its vaccination drive, Malacañan said.
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said the President’s preference not to shift to MGCQ unless there is a vaccine rollout was raised during the ongoing Cabinet meeting.
“President Rodrigo Roa #Duterte gave his directive to the Cabinet that the #Philippines would not be placed under modified general community quarantine unless there is a rollout of vaccines,” Roque said in a statement.

President #Duterte decision on VFA hinges on Filipinos’ welfare

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte will decide on the fate of the Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA) with the national interest and welfare of #Filipinos in mind.
Senator Christopher “Bong” Go said whatever decision the President will come up with should be respected.

The VFA with the United States is a deal to allow the presence of military forces in the #Philippines for military exercises with local troops and humanitarian missions.
An important clause states that US military courts will have jurisdiction over crimes committed by its members as long as they are part of official duties.

Go said President #Duterte, as chief architect of foreign policy, has the prerogative to make decisions for the country.

Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Salvador #Panelo insisted that those criticizing President Rodrigo Roa #Duterte’s demand for the United States (US) to pay the #Philippines for hosting American troops should allow the chief executive to “strategize” since it was part of his job.
While acknowledging critics’ right to free speech, Panelo said their sentiments would give the US the impression that there is disunity among Filipinos.

Panelo reiterated that President #Duterte is the chief architect of foreign policy as mandated by the #Constitution
and that President #Duterte can enter into treaties and to make these treaties effective before it goes to Congress for its concurrence.

Heart-breaking harsh reality.
Not only did we prevent kids from proper education, denied them to play in the park or swim in the sea, asked them to wear masks, not touch or play with their friends,... 1/n…
and caused them scaring psychological harm from safetyism, we are also physically injuring them.
How can we not see the plight of the children? 2/n
“number of children under one presenting with fractures & head trauma since September has more than doubled compared to the same period the previous year. It's normal for parents to feel overwhelmed sometimes. But serious injuries can happen in just a few sec. of frustration.”3/n

THREAD: #Philippines files protest over #China's new coastguard laws in #SouthChinaSea

The PH FM said a diplomatic protest was filed over China's passing of a law allowing its coastguard to open fire on foreign vessels, describing it as a "threat of war"…
2) China passed legislation on Friday allowing its coastguard to use "all necessary means" to stop or prevent threats from foreign vessels, including demolishing other countries' structures built on Chinese-claimed reefs in the South China Sea.
3) The law also specified the circumstances in which different hand-held, shipborne or airborne weapons could be used.

"After reflection I fired a diplomatic protest," Philippines Foreign Minister Teodoro Locsin said on Twitter.

Well done @teddyboylocsin 👍
