Greece is strengthening the security systems at the land and sea borders with Turkey. Behind this is probably the fear of a new influx of migrants. Five meters high, 27 kilometers long, 63 million euros expensive:
Greece is arming itself with massive barriers on the Evros river against the feared new migrant flows from Turkey. Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis inspected the construction work over the weekend.
The Greek land border with Turkey is 206 kilometers long. For the most part, but not continuously, it follows the course of the Evros River (Turkish: Meric). The Evros was the scene of a week-long trial of strength in the spring:

Liège Province hospitals are sounding the alarm. In the houses CHU, CHR and CHC, an occupancy of 112 percent of phase 1B was achieved. Phase 1B means that half of the hospital beds must be reserved for corona patients.
Currently more patients with other pathologies are being treated with it than the disaster plan allows. That said the medical director of the Liège University Hospital, Pierre Gillet. Patients are already being transferred to other hospitals.
Operating theaters would be converted into Covid stations from Monday. The first patients in the intensive care units will soon have to be transferred to other houses. The biggest problem, however, is the thin staffing levels. There is a massive shortage of nurses.

Chinese lawmakers have imposed new biosecurity laws to adopt disease and risk management programs following months of international backlash. In order to report any potential health threats, health workers are encouraged.
As part of wider measures to strengthen its management of disease outbreaks, Beijing passed a new law on Saturday to protect whistleblowers who reveal knowledge about public health emergencies. It is also hope that the new biosecurity law would correct structural shortcomings,
such as those that hindered China's initial response to the coronavirus outbreak, Chinese lawmakers said. The new legislation, which comes into effect next year on April 15, calls on people to report "events that threaten biosecurity."
