German coronavirus infection rate hits highest since pandemic began: Germany’s coronavirus infection rate has risen to its highest level since the start of the pandemic, public health figures showed on Monday, and doctors warned they will need to postpone scheduled operations in coming weeks to cope.
The seven-day incidence rate – the number of people per 100,000 to be infected over the last week – rose to 201.1, higher than a previous record of 197.6 in December last year, the figures from the Robert Koch Institute showed on Monday.

Latest DGT proposal to fine ITV violators, around 32 per cent of drivers: DGT has proposed taking full advantage of the DGT cameras to monitor all vehicles and find those that do not have the ITV. This would then allow the authority to proceed to open the corresponding sanctioning file. According to DGT data, 32 per cent of vehicles circulating on the road system in Spain have not passed the ITV, or have not passed it directly.

(This sounds like the introduction of “Big Brother” monitoring all vehicles on all major highways 24/7, in real time. As gov’t agencies make a habit of exposing supposedly secure data, this is a great threat to privacy. This road use data for every car on the highways will be stored, but it will get out, and inevitably be abused to make profit for somebody. In other cases, such as divorces and criminal investigations, it will be used to prove someone was not where they will claim to have been. This plan to track every driver is your privacy being eroded in a major way! -Ed.)


Tennis News- Catalan Paula Badosa (ES) enters the club of the 10 best in the world: Paula Badosa has entered the exclusive club of the ‘top ten’ in the classification of the WTA, where Garbiñe Muguruza (ES) occupies the fifth place in the world. The two Spanish tennis players will be in the WTA Finals that begin to be played this Wednesday in Guadalajara (Mexico).
The Catalan tennis player becomes the fifth Spaniard to reach the Womens ‘top ten’ after Arantxa Sánchez Vicario, Conchita Martinez, Carla Suarez and Muguruza. Since the year 2000, when Arantxa and Conchita achieved it for the last time, no two Spanish tennis players had been among the top ten in the world.

Double-jabbed elderly people have ‘started dying from Covid due to waning immunity’: The effectiveness of the first two doses of the coronavirus vaccine is waning, and it’s killing elderly and vulnerable people who are double-vaccinated, Dr Susan Hopkins at the UK Health Security Agency, a chief medical adviser, has said. “It is particularly the older age groups, so the over-70s in particular, but also those who are clinically vulnerable, extremely vulnerable, and have underlying medical conditions.”
She added: “As we’ve mentioned, the immune effects wane and what we see is, especially in the older or the vulnerable groups, those are the people whose immunity will wane the most. Full article:


‘Open for business’ U.S. welcomes first travellers as COVID travel curbs are lifted for the vaccinated: Packed intercontinental flights touched down and people embraced relatives at land borders on Monday after the United States lifted restrictions imposed on travellers from much of the world when the COVID-19 pandemic began. Months of pent-up demand triggered a major spike in bookings on Monday, with travellers only required to show official proof of vaccination and a recent, negative viral test.
