#Germany has been able to become a great exporting power, among other things, thanks to bribes, a practice so common for its large companies that until a few years ago they could even be deducted from taxes.
Only its giant Siemens has been discovered irregular operations worth about 420,000 million euros. Volkswagen has tricked millions of customers with the diesel engine scandal;
Many large German companies such as Deutsche Bank, Vodafone, Deutsche Telekom or Deutsche Pos, among others, have also led to major scandals and the biggest tax fraud in European history, the Cum-Ex case, was organized in Germany.

#YEMEN
Yemeni Military Spox : @army21ye :Today we review some numbers and information on the confrontations of five years of steadfastness and of the challenge, despite the huge difference in the number and equipment between Yemen and its enemies.
1-The Yemeni armed forces succeeded in countering the fierce aggressive attack, even though it was outside the scope of the military and combat readiness to start the aggression.
2-The aggression raids announced by us are limited to what was monitored, and there are raids that were not monitored, especially during the first years of the aggression.

Deputy Health Minister Alireza Raisian has criticized the #UK for not delivering millions of masks #Iran bought in preparations ahead of #Covid19 outbreak. The London govt. refused to deliver them citing US sanctions!
While #US just criticizes #Iran and @jzarif calls their offer of help “hypothetical” and the #UK refuses to send the masks Iran had bought earlier, this is #China and few neighbors that helped Iran in time of combating #Covid19.
Deputy Health Minister Raisian: so far 30 million (out of 83mn population) registered, screened through ministry’s established website salamat.gov.ir. They fill a form, answer few questions and health personnel will contact them if they feel sth wrong. #covid19 #Iran

The five-year conflict has killed more than 100,000 and unleashed a humanitarian crisis in which many others have died. Yemen’s shattered healthcare infrastructure and already weakened population suggest the virus could wreak more havoc if takes hold.

Govt of #Pakistan must initiate criminal cases against these accounts spreading video & images from #Iran of #Afghan migrants as #Pakistanis under Quarantine due to #coronavirus.

They should be immediately arrested with MPO clauses & CyberCrime laws before this costs lives:

This will be an ongoing thread regarding life here in #SaudiArabia, during the #CoronaVirus (#CoVid19) #outbreak.

The #Saudi Government was initially quite strongly criticized for it's preventative measures, yet now many criticizing nations have declared states of #emergency.
While basic things like #facemasks have been hoarded elsewhere & sold for up to ten times their market price, here in #Saudi national factories are producing #FaceMaskForSale in the domestic market.

Thank you @MCgovSA 💚🌴

#CoVid19 #CoronaVirus #كورونا
Here's another #CoVid19 essential.
While hoarders and heartless advantage-takers have emptied store shelves of #HandSanitizer, elsewhere…
#Saudi @MCgovSA makes sure factories produce enough to cover domestic demand.

Watching #documentary "The Panama Papers," is on @hulu. Several important takeaways:

1. Governments around the world lose tremendous amounts of revenue rich people should be paying in taxes.
imdb.com/title/tt895105…
Those same rich people are influencing laws & regulatory agencies to make tax evasion easier.

Needless to say, the poor can't use the same methods to avoid paying taxes.
2. Global investigative journalism is beyond the capacity of commercial & national news organizations, assuming their directors are even willing to challenge oligarchs who often control those organizations.

The number of #COVID19 infections in countries that're not testing extensively might be much higher. There are 2 main strategies

Option.1: Test all suspected & quarantine ( #SKorea)
Option.2: Strict quarantine & Contact tracing. (#Singapore & #HK) 1ofn
The #UK is following neither of these options. #India has a combination of two but partial implementation. As a result, both these countries will have more infections, only without confirmation. While #UK has stated that they aim to have herd immunity. #India hasn't said so. 2ofn
Managing #CovidUK is major #natural experiment that a country, that too a developed one is trying. I would argue that it is #unethical to continue this strategy. Aim of #Publichealth is to prevent deaths and minimise morbidity. The current strategy in #UK defies this goal. 3ofn

ESTRATEGIA DE CONTROL DE #COVID EN #UK

¿Se intenta algo similar en México?

1. La estrategia del gobierno en #COVID Es ➕ refinado que los utilizados en otros países y potencialmente ➕ eficaz. Pero también es➕riesgoso y se basa en una serie de suposiciones. Deben ser ✅, y las medidas que introducen deben funcionar cuando se supone que deben hacerlo
2. Todo esto supone que estoy en lo correcto en lo que creo que el gobierno está haciendo y por qué. Podría estar equivocado, y no me sorprendería. Pero me parece a mí.

This is a good summary but somewhat inconsistent to what we have been hearing on #twitter about #italy. The question about triaging those sick and above 60 yo was NOT answered directly. He said the goal was for everyone to get an ICU bed but was that successful? 1/

War declare din #Iraq;

#US bombed Kataeb Hezbollah position in Jurf al-Sakher. US claimed Kataeb Hezbollah is responsible for the bombing of al-Taji base where 2 US and 1 British soldiers were killed and 12 wounded.

This is a serious escalation giving the green light to a war
#US would be considered a legitimate target by the Iraqi resistance groups and escalation can only be expected from today onward: the war is open between #US forces and Iraqi groups.
More than five #Iraq Popular Mobilisation forces (the force formed to fight #ISIS and is part of the Iraqi security forces under the command of the Iraqi Prime Minister) locations have been bombed by #US forces that are supposed to protect Iraq from ISIS.+
