UK epidemic improves, Prime Minister Johnson announces roadmap for unblocking

After the UK launched a large-scale COVID-19 vaccination program, 17.6 million people have so far received at least the first dose of the vaccine, accounting for about a quarter of the country’s population. As the infection and death curve is showing a downward trend, on the 22nd, British Prime Minister Johnson officially announced the road map for unblocking England, and plans to gradually relax epidemic prevention measures starting in March.
According to Johnson’s unblocking plan, the school will be the first to unblock it. All schools in England will resume classes on March 8th, which will improve the safety of teachers and students twice a week, and the public will have limited outdoor social activities.

Johnson described that the epidemic has affected school children’s academic and physical and mental health, and resuming classes is the first step to return to a normal life. Although some teachers’ unions think that the government’s approval of the full resumption of classes is too reckless, the decision has been supported by members of the Labour Party who have always opposed the resumption of classes. Vaccine Minister Zahavi also emphasized that resuming classes is a safe decision under large-scale virus testing.

In Scotland, local kindergarten and primary one to three students returned to school on the 22nd. Schools need to arrange for students to wash their hands regularly, open windows for ventilation, and keep a distance of 2 meters between adults and between adults and children.

At the same time as classes resume, the authorities will relax restrictions on indoor visits in nursing homes, allowing one designated relative or friend to visit residents, and at the same time relax the outdoor gathering restrictions, allowing two people from different families to gather.

From March 29, the outdoor gathering limit will be relaxed to 6 people, and outdoor sports venues will be allowed to reopen. As for non-essential stores, they will be unblocked in April, bars and restaurants will be able to resume dining in May, and the six-person indoor gathering order will be relaxed in June. The goal is to resume normal life in July.

As one of the countries hardest hit by the new crown epidemic, more than 4.1 million people in the UK have been infected and 120,000 have died.

Since the beginning of January, the number of new confirmed cases and the number of deaths in the country have continued to decline. Some epidemiologists pointed out that in the past six weeks, the infection rate in the UK has dropped significantly; the number of new infections in the last seven days has fallen by more than 10% compared with the previous seven days, and the number of deaths has fallen by 27%.

Analysis believes that the “combined punch” of closing the city and adding vaccine has a significant effect on curbing the epidemic.

However, whether the lockdown should be lifted at present, many parties still hold their own opinions. The British Medical Association believes that only when the number of infected people drops below 1,000 per day can the restrictions be relaxed significantly. In the past seven days, the average number of new diagnoses in the UK every day exceeded 10,000.

In addition, schools in England are about to resume classes, and whether children should be vaccinated is also controversial. British Health Secretary Hancock said that many parties are conducting trials to assess the safety and effectiveness of the new crown vaccine for younger people. The University of Oxford and AstraZeneca have announced the opening of clinical trials of the vaccine for children aged 6 to 17.

Edmonds, a key member of the British Emergency Scientific Advisory Group (SAGE), emphasized that the new crown epidemic “still has a major risk of re-epidemic before everyone in the country, including children, is vaccinated.” It will take several months for Britain to vaccinate the entire population.

[Unblock with caution, all stages must meet the “four major conditions”]

The United Kingdom has entered its third lockdown since the beginning of January. The Johnson government has been criticized for slowing epidemic prevention operations and premature relaxation of restrictions, which caused the epidemic to rebound.

This time Johnson promised to learn from the lesson. In order to prevent the unblocking pace from being too fast, Johnson proposed that the “four major conditions” must be met before each stage of unblocking. They are whether the progress of the vaccination plan is as expected by the government and whether the vaccine is effectively reduced. Severe cases and deaths, whether the level of infection rate will cause the medical system to collapse, and whether the emergence of new variant viruses will make the epidemic worse.

According to reports, the authorities have anticipated that after the school resumes, the confirmed cases and the infection rate may rise, but they believe that the most important thing is whether the number of severely ill patients will increase significantly and whether the medical system can bear it by then. , The authorities will not necessarily stop unblocking because of this.

However, many Conservative Party members criticized that Johnson’s road map for unblocking the ban was too conservative and believed that the ban should be completely unblocked as soon as possible. Some members pointed out that according to the current vaccination plan, people under the age of 50 should be vaccinated before mid-April. There is no reason why the authorities will not fully unblock it before the end of April.

South Korea-US joint military exercise may be held in March, the US Department of Defense emphasizes the importance of joint exercises

According to a report from Korea Broadcasting International (KBS) on the 24th, the US Department of Defense officially stated its position, emphasizing the importance of the South Korean-US joint military exercise.

According to reports, the spokesperson of the US Department of Defense said in response to a written question about whether the South Korean-US joint military exercise will be held as scheduled in March, saying that US Secretary of Defense Austin attaches the greatest importance to the military response. The U.S. Department of Defense particularly emphasized that the South Korean-U.S. joint military exercise is a core means to confirm the posture of the two countries’ joint preparations.

The United States reiterated that the basic purpose of the exercise is not to provoke, but to defend.

The U.S. Department of Defense also stated that it will determine the specific scale and timing of the exercise after consultation with the South Korean government.

As usual, South Korea and the United States usually hold two large-scale joint military exercises from March to April and August each year. Affected by the epidemic, the joint command post exercise to be held from March to April 2020 was indefinitely postponed, and the scale of the joint exercise in August was also reduced.

Over 9 million people still face drinking water problems! Biden intends to go to Texas to understand the disaster

Texas, the United States, has recently been affected by snowstorms, water and power cuts, and the situation has not been fully alleviated. President Biden plans to go to Texas on the 26th local time to understand the disaster.

On the other hand, on the 23rd, four Texas Electric Reliability Commission (ERCOT) board members submitted their resignations. Governor Abbott responded that he “welcomes” his resignation and will continue to investigate ERCOT.

Biden plans to travel to Texas to learn about the disaster

On the afternoon of the 23rd local time, the White House announced its itinerary, saying that Biden will go to Houston with the first lady Jill. In recent days, he has remotely contacted the Texas state government and local officials, but expressed his unwillingness to visit Texas too early to avoid taking up resources to deal with the current crisis.

White House spokesperson Shaqi said that during the inspection, Biden will “meet with local leaders to discuss winter storms and snow, disaster relief work, progress in recovery work, and the incredible resilience shown by the people of Texas and Houston.” She He added that Biden will also visit a health center that is distributing the new crown vaccine. The White House will provide further information on this visit soon.

The blizzard last week caused billions of dollars in damage to Texas. Millions of Texas residents have been without water and electricity for a long time, struggling to survive the severe cold. Currently, dozens of people in Texas have died in accidents related to winter blizzards.

In response, Saki said that in the states affected by the storm, the number of asylums is decreasing, and electricity and transportation have returned to normal. But over 9 million people still face drinking water problems.

Four ERCOT board members resign

The governor of Texas says he will continue to investigate ERCOT

On the 23rd, 4 board members of the Texas Electric Reliability Commission (ERCOT), including the chairman and the vice chairman, submitted their resignations, effective from the 24th.

According to a letter to the board of directors, the four officials resigned after ERCOT was reviewed because the board members did not live in Texas. Of the four members, one lives in Michigan and one lives in Illinois. The place of residence of the other two is not shown on their ERCOT introduction page.

Texas Governor Abbott issued a statement on the resignation of ERCOT’s board of directors on the 23rd, stating, “When Texans desperately needed electricity, ERCOT failed to do its job well. Texans could only tremble with cold at home. There is no electricity. The leadership of ERCOT assured that Texas’s electricity infrastructure was prepared for winter storms, but these guarantees proved to be catastrophically wrong.”

The statement also said, “The lack of preparation and transparency of ERCOT is unacceptable. I welcome these resignations. Texas will continue to investigate ERCOT to find out the full cause of the problem, and we will ensure that the catastrophic events of last week will not repeat itself.”

Biden: Has reached an agreement with Trudeau, the United States and Canada are committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2050

On February 23, 2021, local time, Washington, the United States, the first official meeting between Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau and U.S. President Biden was held. The meeting was video-based.

US President Biden said on the 23rd that he and Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau agreed that the two countries will strive to achieve net zero emissions of greenhouse gases by 2050 (the amount of carbon dioxide eliminated will completely offset the emissions).

According to Reuters, Biden said after a video meeting with Trudeau, “We (two countries) are launching a high-level ministerial meeting dedicated to addressing climate change to coordinate our policies and goals by 2050. Achieve net zero emissions by the year.” Biden’s goal is consistent with his commitment during the 2020 election.

Biden signed an executive order to return to the Paris Agreement on the first day of the president’s inauguration. On the 19th of this month, US Secretary of State Blincoln issued a statement stating that the United States has officially become a party to the Paris Agreement again. The statement also stated that the United States is “reconnecting with the world in all aspects, including participating in the leaders’ climate summit on April 22.”

Former U.S. President Trump announced in June 2017 that he would withdraw from the Paris Agreement to address climate change and officially withdrew on November 4, 2020. This move has been widely criticized by countries around the world and the United States.

The cultural myths that affect parenting

From sleeping in separate beds to their children to transporting them in prams, Western parents have some unusual ideas about how to raise them.

“Is he in his own room yet?” is a question new parents often field once they emerge from the haze of life with a newborn. But sleeping apart from our babies is a relatively recent development – and not one that extends around the globe. In other cultures sharing a room, and sometimes a bed, with your baby is the norm.

This isn’t the only aspect of new parenthood that Westerners do differently. From napping on a schedule and sleep training to pushing our children around in strollers, what we might think of as standard parenting practices are often anything but.

Parents in the US and UK are advised to have their babies sleep in the same room as them for at least the first six months, but many view this as a brief stopover on their way to a dedicated nursery.

In most other societies around the world, babies stick with their parents longer. A 2016 review that looked at research on children sharing not just a room but a bed with one or more of their parents found a high prevalence in many Asian countries: over 70% in India and Indonesia, for example, and over 80% in Sri Lanka and Vietnam. Research on bedsharing rates in countries across Africa is patchy, but where it does exist suggests the practice is near-universal.

Debmita Dutta, a doctor and parenting consultant in Bangalore, India, says that despite Western influences, bedsharing remains a strong tradition in India – even in households where children have their own rooms. “A family of four has three bedrooms, one each for each child and for the parents, and then you would find both the children in the parent’s bed,” she says. “It’s that common.”

Bedsharing is one way to reduce the burden of babies waking up at night, says Dutta. Her own daughter had a rollout bed next to her parents’ that she could sleep on until she was seven years old. “Even after she stopped breastfeeding, she still liked to sleep with us in the same room,” she says.
