🇷🇴La Roumanie annonce ne plus disposer de lit de soins intensifs (ICU) sur leur territoire.

En cause ? Une explosion de l'épidémie de #Covid_19 dans le pays.
🟧Il y a 1 480 patients #Covid en soins intensif, c'est plus qu'en France (pourtant 3,5 fois plus peuplé)

#romania

⚠️Il n'y a jamais eu autant de cas et de décès #Covid dans ce pays de 19,3 millions d'habitants, les niveaux des précédentes vagues ont été dépassés il y a peu et la hausse est toujours significative.

⤵️ #coronavirus ImageImage
⚠️Malheureusement, la #Roumanie fait partie des pays les moins vaccinés d'Europe avec seulement 28% de la population totalement vaccinée.

Loin derrière la France donc et ses 66% de full vaccinés. Image

The UN #DurbanIV conference is a cesspool of discriminatory, anti-Israel propaganda.

“Zionism=Racism" is a vicious slander against the Jewish state and its supporters.

America and many allies stand proudly with Israel in boycotting this despicable conference.
Thank you @POTUS and @SecBlinken @StateDept for refusing to participate in the anti-Israel #DurbanIV conference.

1/ I build the Customenu startup and I’ll #buildinpublic, using this thread.

What is #customenu?

A digital menu platform for #restaurant.

Instead of using boring paper were to check the #dishes, you can see a nice representation on your smartphone.
2/ This is the second release and this time I decided to share my journey on Twitter.

I started for the first time, one year ago in June. It was a pandemic situation and in #Romania, new rules were coming for the #restaurants' businesses.
3/ Only me thinking about this project.

What should do?

1. Scan a #QRCode
2. Open the #menu
3. Check #products in categories and subcategories

Dear People of #Israel,

It’s time to get off the trains.

Get out into the streets and start protesting this tyranny in huge numbers, like the rest of the world are.

It’s time to wake up.
These are protests against tyranny in #Turkey 🇹🇷

#Israel, it’s time to wake up.
Get off the trains.
These are the protests against tyranny in #Netherlands 🇳🇱

#Israel, it’s time to wake up.
Get off the trains 🇮🇱

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!

The daily #Coronavirus megathread for Tuesday starts early, from Manchester airport.

Because of the early start I missed a few countries from yesterday's thread, first I'll update these #Covid19 totals. Tweets during the day may be delayed due to travel & connectivity issues
1/3 #GreekIslands - yesterday cases nudged lower again in #Greece and there were some very promising data from the islands too.

#Crete cut new cases of #Covid19 by 43% while for #Corfu it was a 48% fall and #Rhodes saw a reduction of 38%.

#Samos and #Chios need watching...

It's time to do an honest review!
Historians will write and speak on the fall of #Kabul from here on, and this topic will feed conference sponsors and lecture circuit speakers around the world.
Had George Bush stayed away from Iraq, the situation today could have been different?
Saddam Hussein, a bloody tyrant that he was, at least kept the strategic balance of power in check from a sectarian perspective in the Middle East.
His removal unleashed the great schism between the rival school of thought, but, also shifted the focus away from #Afghanistan.
Iraq is reeling from the effects of the war that Blair and Bush launched based on fabricated grounds.
No WoMDs were found inside Iraq!
This was part of the greater #Neoconservative Plan based in Washington to weaken the Arab States, which could offer resistance to Israel.

I've been looking a little more into the data behind this article this AM and want to focus on the need to look at the disaggregated figures - WHICH #EUcitizens are being turned away at the UK's borders is the question we should be asking #THREAD 1/
theguardian.com/uk-news/2021/m…
Looking at the passenger refusal data for Q1 2021 and sorting to look exclusively at EU citizens, this is the picture broken down by nationality 2/ assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/upl…
Guessing everyone can see #Romania there in the top spot? And by a loooooong way. Across this dataset for Q1 2021 it is unusual for any country to have numbers of refusals in triple figures—only Bulgaria (199), Poland (140), Eritrea (125) and Iraq (107) are in this category 3/

It's #Eurovision week!

After last year was cancelled, they're going ahead this year with a limited audience.

Here's this year's entries. My prediction: 🇲🇹#Malta will win.

More on that below in the thread you didn't ask for but are getting anyway (1/21).
You might ask: this is 1st & foremost a TV show with theoretically no need for performers to be in same place, why was 2020 cancelled (for 1st time in 65 years)?

Answer: Eurovision rules are strict. There wasn't enough time to change them to allow contestants to compete remotely
#Netherlands is hosting this year in Rotterdam, because they won in 2019 with Arcade.

I'll be heading up there to cover it, luckily it's just 90 minutes away.

The rules are quite strict: constant testing & separation of audience, contestants and press.

Curious about what CETA is and why campaigners are urgently trying to stop the government from ratifying the deal?

It’s not about trade!
That part has been up and running since 2017.

It’s all about the Investment Court System (the #ICS)... (thread) Image
If governments pass laws that upset corporate profits (e.g., environmental regulations) the ICS will allow corporations to bypass national court systems to sue taxpayers (you) in private investor courts... Image
For example... the community of Rosia Montana in #Romania tried to stop an illegal gold mine from ruining their environment & displacing their residents. The Romanian courts ruled against the mine but the company, Gabriel Resources, is now suing Romania for $5.7 BILLION! Image

Shocking account of a hospital whistleblower in #Sibiu on how the #COVID19 patients are sent to #death as a practical default option in the hospital. [1/4]

In Romanian: turnulsfatului.ro/2021/03/07/rdq… #ICU #Romania #hospital #Thread
A whistleblower working in the intensive care unit of the COVID19 hospital in Sibiu recognised that it killed patients by following the intubation procedure in an universal way for the peacefulness of doctors and nurses: "I myself murdered people, because I worked there." [2/4]
It included interventions applied in a robotic way, including through procedures not recommended scientifically. Doctors and nurses unprepared for the job. Careless health workers. Lack of differences in the intervention despite specific comorbidities. [3/4]

Today @IBAnews and @GovAcctProj launched a groundbreaking international report on the effectiveness of #whistleblower laws. I'm going to share some key findings with you. tinyurl.com/5er5ujpf
#Canada #Lebanon and #Norway's #whistleblower laws only met 1/20 best practices criteria making them the worst paper rights.
The EU Whistleblower Protection Directive, #Australia, and the #UnitedStates have the strongest #whistleblower laws, meeting 16/20 best practices criteria.

Braşov's train station on an early morning. Time for another short #railway trip! This time I'm on the IR366, which starts in Braşov, loops through Romania via Miercurea Ciuc, Dej and Cluj to Oradea, where it crosses into Hungary and trundles on to Budapest.
This area is called #Székely Land, and is where most of the Hungarian minority in Romania lives. In fact, in many places here they might even consist up to a full 100% of the local population. In Harghita province where I'm heading to, 85% of the population is Hungarian.
I'm getting off at Băile Tușnad, or Tusnádfürdő as it is called by the Hungarian majority of this small spa town. It's also officially #Romania's smallest town ("oraş"), having only 1,641 inhabitants!

Another weekend #railway trip. Bulgaria unfortunately got cancelled due to the sudden PCR test requirement, but there are plenty of cool domestic trips possible in #Romania. On the line now between the oil city of Ploieşti and Sinaia. ImageImage
Departure from #Sinaia's lovely train station. A town well worth visiting for Peleş Castle and the mountains, but as I've been a gazillion times there before I'll pass on it for now and remain on board.
The #Carpathians are at their most majestic around Buşteni. Although the town itself isn't the prettiest, its a great starting point for hikes and has a cable car up the mountains. Image

#EU #Brussels #Coronavirus #vaccine

A number of EU countries have asked Brussels to help the neighboring countries to the east with vaccination. The foreign ministers of 13 eastern and northern member states wrote to the EU Commission to this effect.
"We think that our borders will not be safe if we do not extend our support to our direct neighbors," declared the government representatives of #Bulgaria, #Croatia, the #CzechRepublic, #Denmark, #Estonia, #Finland, #Hungary, #Latvia, #Lithuania,
#Poland, #Romania, #Slovakia and #Sweden. Access to vaccines must be made easier for the eastern partners. The EU is already supporting non-member states in the Balkans as part of its vaccination strategy. 70 million euros from the EU budget are available for this.

Meanwhile in #France,
"the peak of this second wave is over"

(according to the President in his Adress to the Nation):
Wait... "the peak is over" doesn´t mean "it´s back to normal"!

Confinement will only fall on December 15,
if there´s less than 5.000 new cases a day.
(today it´s ~9.000).

France is disappointed.🙁

Although they certainly can make it happen.
Meanwhile in #Switzerland:
(excess mortality of the second wave is significant)

Good news: fastest decrease in infections happens in the worst hit areas now.

Monday's #Coronavirus thread starts here, as we hope Europe continues to make progress against the spread of #Covid19.
All the news as it happens throughout the day but I'll particularly be watching two things
Countries heading back up again
Deaths falling 10-14 days after peak
#USA continues to surge - initial figures for Sunday not yet in (this total always increases anyway when regions which didn't report over the weekend add their data)

But one big headline came from #Florida, where the Sunshine State went back over 10,000 #Covid19 cases in a day
..it's the first time since July #Florida hit 10k, and for the last 3 months FLA has not even touched 7,000

Today #USA should experience a total of between 158,000 and 180,000 cases as it edges towards 200k in the coming days. I'm predicting 172,000 by the end of the day
