Germany aims to have first risk groups vaccinated in January

BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany aims to have the first vulnerable people and caregivers vaccinated against the coronavirus in January, the health minister said on Tuesday, as the European Union’s (EU) most populous country battles a second wave. He added that he expects more vaccines, which can be administered by general practitioners, in spring or early summer. Spahn last month said he expects Germany will get up to 100 million doses of the Biontech-Pfizer vaccine alone. Nurses, doctors, and sick and old people - who have a higher risk of serious infection - will likely get the vaccine first. Germany was widely praised for its response to the first coronavirus wave in spring, but numbers now are stubbornly high despite new distancing measures introduced early last month.

BANGKOK (Reuters) - Mitree Chitinunda was such a devoted Thai royalist that he had the king’s portrait cut into his hair last year, but politics like fashion and hairstyles is changing in Thailand. “I support all of the three demands,” said Mitree, 48, who regularly joins the protests. That’s why we need to reform the monarchy, but it doesn’t mean getting rid of the institution because we all love the king,” Mitree said. “I have received a lot of information via the internet, television or YouTube channels and weighed whether it’s true and it turns out it’s true,” he said. Warong Dechgitvigrom, leader of royalist group “Thai Pakdee” said some people were being misled by social media, but he believes most Thais support the monarchy.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Dr. Scott Atlas has resigned as special adviser on the coronavirus to President Donald Trump, a White House official said on Monday, after a controversial four months during which he clashed repeatedly with other members of the coronavirus task force. “I am writing to resign from my position as special adviser to the president of the United States,” Atlas said in a letter to Trump dated Dec. 1 that he posted on Twitter. Scott Atlas’ resignation today is long overdue and underscores the triumph of science and truth over falsehoods and misinformation,” his peers at Stanford University’s medical school said in a statement issued late Monday. Atlas was considered a special government employee on a 130-day detail that expires this week. “You wouldn’t go to a podiatrist for a heart attack and that was essentially what was happening.”(Interactive graphic tracking global spread of coronavirus: here)

JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesian President Joko Widodo on Monday condemned the brutal murder of four villagers by suspected Islamist militants as “beyond the limits of humanity”, as the military chief prepared to deploy special forces to join the hunt for the killers. FILE PHOTO: Indonesian President Joko Widodo gestures during an interview with Reuters at the presidential palace in Jakarta, Indonesia, November 13, 2020. Central Sulawesi was a flashpoint of sectarian violence between Muslims and Christians in the late 1990s and early 2000s, which resulted in hundreds of deaths. Separately on Monday, Indonesian police announced they had arrested suspected bomb-maker Upik Lawanga, from the militant group, Jemaah Islamiyah. Lawanga is suspected of making a bomb that killed more than 20 people in 2005 at a market in Poso, also central Sulawesi.

Sturgeon said she wanted another vote “in the early part of the next term of the Scottish parliament rather than the later part”, declining to rule out a possible vote in autumn 2021. London must give permission for any plebiscite, and in remarks to BBC radio Sturgeon declined to preclude taking legal action should Johnson block another vote.

Claims from all sides are difficult to verify since phone and internet links to Tigray region have been largely down and access tightly controlled since the war began on Nov. 4.

Thousands of people are already believed to have died and there has been widespread destruction from aerial bombardment and ground fighting since the war began on Nov. 4. If confirmed, the presence of Eritrean ground forces would amount to a major escalation of the conflict. In Tigray, satellite images showed Ethiopian troops in the ancient town of Axum and trenches dug across the local airport’s runway.
