VACCINATION BY REGION

On mainland Portugal

All over the world, one way to understand how fast vaccinations are being carried out in different countries is to observe the number of doses administered per 100 inhabitants.

COUNTRIES WITH THE LARGEST NUMBER OF INOCULATED DOSES

Israel was in the lead early in the race. The government, which sought re-election in March, paid nearly double what the European Union paid for each dose, and it shares clinical information from citizens with the pharmaceutical company Pfizer on a weekly basis.

The United Arab Emirates, and in Europe, the UK also occupies enviable positions in the world rankings. In the countries of South America, Chile stands out from all the rest.

TOTAL DOSES IN THE EUROPEAN UNION

Total inoculated doses per 100 inhabitants

Portugal has almost always been on par with the average of its 27 member states, but in the past 15 days it has accelerated its pace and has pulled away from its European partners.… When comparing the number of doses vaccinated per 100 inhabitants, Portugal ranks 7th with 92.9 doses per 100 inhabitants between the Netherlands and Germany. Malta and Hungary (which also uses Sinopharm from China and Sputnik V from Russia) stand out positively other partners. With the lowest number of doses per capita – Bulgaria, Romania and Denmark.

DOSES DISTRIBUTED IN PORTUGAL

Total per week by number of doses

In the European Union, vaccines are sent simultaneously to all Member States and the dose distribution is proportional to the number of inhabitants in each country. However, Member States are vaccinating at different rates. In Portugal, the vaccine Pfizer / BioNTech is the most widely represented and Janssen (J&J) has the least dose distribution.

POPULATION WITH FULL VACCINE

Portugal buys over 32 million doses of various covid-19 vaccines… The purchase is part of an agreement between the European Union and six pharmaceutical companies. Currently there are four vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency and used in Portugal: BioNTech / Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Janssen.

The European Medicines Agency oversees the development of the Curevax, Novavax and Spuntik V vaccines.

NEW VACCINATIONS BY COUNTRIES

Moving average for the previous 7 days

Implementation of each country’s vaccination plans depends on operational and logistical issues.

There are 4 vaccines introduced in the country: Moderna and Pfizer / BioNtech for all ages (28 days between two doses); Janssen for all men over 18 and women over 50 (single shot); and AstraZeneca for people over 60 years of age (3 months between two doses).

Saudi Arabia: Woman sentenced to over 30 years in prison for using Twitter

Published

on

Salma al-Shehab, a Saudi student at the University of Leeds, UK, was sentenced to 34 years in prison for having a Twitter account, following and distributing posts by dissidents and anti-Saudi activists when she returned home this summer. on holiday.

Initially, according to The Guardian, Salma was sentenced to three years in prison for the “crime” of using the website to “cause public disorder and destabilize civil and national security.” But on Monday, after a prosecutor’s request to consider other crimes, the court of second instance issued a new sentence: 34 years in prison, followed by a 34-year travel ban.

According to an English newspaper that had access to a translation of court records, the new allegations include an allegation that Shehab “helped those who seek to cause civil unrest and destabilize civil and national security by following his Twitter accounts” and sharing his tweets.

In a brief social media consultation for a 34-year-old Saudi mother of two, Shehab appears to have no activist profile, while on Instagram she reveals her more personal life, presenting herself as an oral hygienist and doctoral student. student. Twitter already has shares of Saudi dissidents living in exile asking for the release of political prisoners in the kingdom.

The Guardian on Twitter declined to comment on the case, clashing with journalist Stephanie Kirchgessner over the possible influence of Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, who owns more than 5% of the social network through Kingdom Holding.

The case comes just weeks after Joe Biden’s heavily criticized visit to Saudi Arabia, during which several activists confronted the President of the United States of America about various human rights violations by the regime of Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

North Korea launched two cruise missiles

Published

on

The Seoul Ministry of Defense said North Korea launched two cruise missiles on Wednesday, ending a month-long hiatus in Pyongyang’s record-breaking series of weapons tests this year.

“We discovered this morning that North Korea launched two cruise missiles towards the West Sea off the coast of Oncheon, South Pyongan Province,” a ministry spokesman told AFP. “US and South Korean military officials are looking into detailed specifications such as range.”

North Korea has not tested a cruise missile, which is not prohibited by UN sanctions against the country, since January, the Yonhap news agency reported. Pyongyang last tested weapons on July 10, when several rocket launchers were launched.

Since January, North Korea has conducted a series of sanctions-repressive tests, including the launch of a full-range ICBM for the first time since 2017. Officials in Washington and Seoul also warned that the isolated regime was preparing to carry out what would be its seventh nuclear test.

Earlier this week, the South Korean and US military began preliminary drills ahead of their annual Ulchi Freedom Shield (UFS) joint exercise. The drills infuriate Pyongyang, which sees them as a rehearsal for an invasion.

South Korea says it will not pursue nuclear deterrence

South Korea’s president said today that his government has no plans to interfere with nuclear deterrence after North Korea’s nuclear capabilities increase. Yoon Suk-yeol urged Pyongyang to resume negotiations and diplomacy aimed at trading the stages of North Korea’s denuclearization for economic benefits.

Yoon’s office said South Korea’s director of national security, Kim Seong-han, discussed the launch with other officials before Yoon spoke to reporters at a press conference and reaffirmed South Korea’s military readiness.

Yoon told reporters that South Korea does not want violent political change in North Korea and called for a return to negotiations for a lasting peace.

Yun’s proposal, namely large-scale assistance in the fields of food, medicine and health care, as well as in the modernization of the energy industry and port infrastructure, is reminiscent of previous proposals by South Korea that were rejected by North Korea, namely, accelerating the development of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles, which North Korean leader Kim Jong-un regarded as the main guarantee of his survival.

Nevertheless, Yoon expressed hope for a “meaningful dialogue” with North Korea about his plan and emphasized that Seoul is ready to provide appropriate economic benefits at every stage of the denuclearization process if North Korea adopts a real roadmap to abandon its weapons program.
