Government aid plan to compensate for up to 40 per cent of lost income in hard-hit sectors: The government has given the go-ahead for 11 billion euros of support to be paid to businesses most affected by the pandemic, including those in the tourism industry.
It says seven billion of this will be in the form of direct aid, to compensate small and medium firms (SMEs) and the self-employed, in some 100 sectors considered to have been hit hardest by the health crisis, for up to 40 per cent of the loss in income. Other companies will be compensated for up to 20 per cent. Apart from the package of subsidies that will not have to be paid back, other measures will be applied to the whole productive network.

Volcano erupts near Iceland’s capital: The eruption occurred near Fagradalsfjall, a mountain on the Reykjanes Peninsula, around 30 km (19 miles) southwest of the capital.
Some four hours after the initial eruption at 2045 GMT – the first on the peninsula since the 12th century – lava covered about one square kilometer or nearly 200 football fields. Unlike the eruption in 2010 of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano, which halted approximately 900,000 flights and forced hundreds of Icelanders from their homes, this eruption is not expected to spew much ash or smoke into the atmosphere.

SARS-CoV-2 variant found in pets, and it may cause heart issues: New studies have revealed that pets — namely dogs and cats — have been identified with SARS-CoV-2 variant infections, and though it hasn’t yet been confirmed, it seems the virus may put the animals at risk of heart issues similar to the ones seen in some human patients. The discovery was made in the UK after veterinarians noticed an unusual spike in the number of pets suffering from a type of heart inflammation called myocarditis.
