Ik heb hier een tijdje op lopen kauwen. Even los van de huidige epidemiologische situatie en wanneer het slim is om te versoepelen.

Ik vind het outsourcen van volksgezondheid (ja, ziektepreventie is volksgezondheid) naar de markt best wel een ding.

nu.nl/coronavirus/61…
Het is niet "als je dan zonodig naar een festival wilt moet je je gewoon even laten testen". Als ik straks met mijn kinderen naar een museum wil moet ik 45,- extra aftikken. Of op een terras een ijsje wil eten. Of uit eten wil.

Dat zijn normale, dagelijkse dingen.
En iedereen in #NL heeft het recht om aan het maatschappelijk verkeer deel te nemen. Ouderen en kwetsbaren, maar ook mensen die een dergelijke "boete" op deelname aan sociaal verkeer helemaal niet kunnen betalen. Of willen betalen trouwens.

What do you know about #Shafaqna news agency?

The director of Shafaqna, #Abolfazl_Fateh, Iranian reformist who currently resides in #England, was the head of MirHossein Musavi's propaganda campaign in the 2009 sedition against Islamic Republic of Iran!

Fateh went to #Oxford for his PhD with Iranian Government funding money, but he illegally never returned and stayed in #UK! He was the person who announced the color of green for the rebel seditionists against Islamic Republic of Iran.
He organized a press session for Musavi before counting the votes, before announcing the result, in which, Musavi announced his winning as the self-proclaimed president instead of president Ahmadinejad who was the real winner elected by the majority of people.

Los hospitales y las UCIs se están llenando con pacientes más jóvenes con #COVID19 en comparación con las olas previas y esto es un fenómeno observado en Costa Rica y en el mundo en general. Esto tiene que ver con cambios en el comportamiento del virus o atiende a otros factores?
Se había planteado que la variante B.1.1.7, la cual se identificó por primera vez en #UK, la cual es la predominantemente en este momento en #EEUU fuese no solo más transmisible si no además que generará enfermedad más severa y en personas más jóvenes.
Un estudio publicado ayer en The Lancet Infectious Diseases (thelancet.com/journals/lanin…), no encontró evidencia en una muestra de pacientes hospitalizados de que la variante B.1.1.7 esté asociada con la variable de #severidad.

A #Tory billionaire bankrolled ‘herd immunity’ #scientist who advised PM against lockdown
Exclusive: Johnson ruled out lockdown 24 hours after meeting with Sunetra #Gupta – resulting in ‘1.3m extra #COVID infections’
#Johnson effectively side-lined his official medical and scientific advisers to rule out a lockdown
A #scientist who advised Boris Johnson against introducing a lockdown last autumn was bankrolled by a billionaire Tory donor, openDemocracy can reveal today.
#Johnson’s apparent U-turn decision to not impose #lockdown, which experts say may have resulted in an estimated 1.3 million extra #COVID infections, came just 24 hours after meeting with Oxford epidemiologist Sunetra #Gupta. Last Year

Replying to @mojos55

Again and again, he found, this money, though it might originate in #Russia, #Africa or the Middle #East, travels through #London. The murders and kidnappings don’t happen here, of course: our bankers have clean cuffs and manicured nails.
The National Crime Agency estimates that money laundering costs the #UK £100bn a year. But it makes the rich much more. With the money come people fleeing the consequences of their crimes, welcomed into this country through the govt’s “golden visa” scheme: a red carpet laid out
for the very rich.
None of this features in the official definitions of corruption. #Corruption is what little people do. But #kleptocrats in other countries are merely clients of the bigger thieves in #London.

Soll das ein Witz sein? Das momentan vorgesehene "Infektionsschutzgesetzänderungsgesetz" ist das Papier nicht wert, auf dem es gedruckt wurde. 100er Inzidenz als Zielgröße bedeutet für den Rest des Jahres Dauer JoJo. Restaurants, Sport und Kulturszene im Dauer-Lockdown.
Eine Notbremse ist keine Stragegie, sondern Ausdruck eines Kontrollverlustes. Die Zielsetzung kann nur heißen, Inzidenzen runter drücken, so schnell wir möglich, so wie es in #UK, #Irland und #Portugal gelungen ist. Alles andere ist Durchseuchungskurs und Wirtschaftsschädigung.
Dieser gesetzliche Rahmen würde den Eiertanz verlängern, den wir seit einem Jahr haben. Wer das nicht verstanden hat, der sollte einfach aufhören zu behaupten, dieses Land noch regieren zu wollen. Auch in der Pandemie tragen Politiker Verantwortung für ihre (Nicht-)Entscheidungen

New blood condition linked to AstraZeneca jab as J&J vaccine is investigated over blood clots
Another potentially fatal blood condition has been linked to the AstraZeneca vaccine, the EU’s medical regulator has announced.
The (#EMA) said five people who had the jab developed capillary leak syndrome on the continent.
The rare condition results in blood leaking from tiny vessels into muscles which can cause a sudden drop in blood pressure. If left untreated this can cause organ failure.
The AstraZeneca vaccine has been restricted to the over 30s in the UK after being linked to serious blood clots that can cause brain haemorrhages.
Nineteen people have died from rare blood clotting in the #UK after taking the jab.

1/12: Will the UK #integratedreview of security & #foreignpolicy really make a difference? It was billed as a radical reset after #Brexit & does contain important innovations. But there are many areas of continuity. A thread, now we’ve had time to digest..
2/12: #GlobalBritain hyperbole was inevitable. A “science superpower”, a “#softpower superpower”, “an independent country free to tread our own path”. But to be fair, beneath the froth lies serious thought to frame international & domestic priorities.
3/12: The #geopolitical analysis is sober. A tougher, more competitive world where China looms large & old certainties no longer apply. Yet the core prescription is familiar. British foreign policy with global reach, defending liberal democratic values, rule of law & trade.

While #Lebanon's politicians jockey for power & money, Hezbollah launches a supermarket chain with subsidised food staples to help the Lebanese people overcome the US' "starvation sanctions." Just one more reason why Hezbollah wins elections and America wants them crushed.
This US product now costs over $50 at the official bank rate, and yet it is still on #Lebanon's market shelves. Food products from Syria, Iran, Jordan are a fraction of that price, but the US threatens sanctions if goods pass through Syria, Lebanon's only viable land border.
The Americans are ruthless about forcing their products & prices on #Lebanon. When the last Lebanese govt was forming, a senior US emissary rushed here to prevent a Hezbollah candidate from becoming Minister of Health. Why, you ask? US pharmaceuticals:

2) Two weeks ago, the #UK published its Integrated Review (IR) – the biggest review of UK defence, security & foreign policy since cold war - where it outlined overarching international policy objectives until 2030.

Rising concerns about #Iran’s regime featured throughout 👇
3)The most noteworthy change in relation to #Iran policy was the absence of any reference to JCPOA.

Since 2015, the #UK has explicitly defined its Iran policy through the #JCPOA & its commitment to upholding it. So the absence of any mention of the JCPOA in the IR is important

It has to be reminded that it did NOT work on #HongKong, where the main driver was treaty expiration, NOT Chinese pressure. Even there, economic, political and military considerations made it unpalatable.(/)
Yet treaty duly expired, since there was no way for the UK to act otherwise. If anything, what should worry #Taiwan is NOT #China. It's #Germany, which is turning into a sort of Neutral player whose goal is to displease no one.(/)
However, Since Germany is #Europe's bank it has a disproportionate influence on policy, hence the soft touch with Russia, China, Turkey, Iran, you name it. Any country where bosses have an Iron hand on trade issues get treated well.(/)

Wellicht beetje azijnpissen, maar dit is niet waar. In het artikel staat dat we in februari één dag 67k mensen hebben geprikt (en die hebben we geteld, niet geschat). Misschien moet de koppenmaker het artikel de volgende keer ook ff lezen.
Het is helaas ook waar dat het nog steeds niet direct een indrukwekkend record is.
Het #UK dagrecord ligt met 844k/67mln mensen aanmerkelijk hoger dan onze 65k/17mln (resp. 1.298 en 382 vaccinaties per 100k inwoners op 1 dag)
Voor de duidelijkheid, zouden we wel in de buurt komen van het gewenste priktempo (500k / week, 72k / dag = 424 per 100k inw) zal dat record er wel aan moeten. En dan is het nog steeds bescheiden als je het afzet tot de ambities die geformuleerd zijn in de #vaccinatiestrategie.

NEW -- Donors at #SyriaConf2021 have pledged a total of $6.4bn.

That's an enormous $3.6bn short of what the @UN needs to meet the increasing humanitarian needs in #Syria.
@UN A few more pledges for #Syria:

#EU: $657m
#Saudi: $560m
#Sweden: $97m
#Italy: $52m
#UAE: $30m

And a note on the $6.4bn total -- that's multi-year pledges. For 2021 alone, the figure is $4.2bn, less than half of what's needed.
