Russia extends UK flight ban until January 12



Russia has extended a ban on flights to and from the UK until Jan. 12 in light of the new coronavirus variant circulating across the UK and several other countries, the Russian coronavirus task force said according to state-run news agency TASS.

“In order to prevent the import and the spread of the new coronavirus infection the task force has decided to extend the suspension of flights with the UK," the statement said, according to TASS. “To ensure the protection of public health, the restrictions have been extended until 23:59 on January 12, 2021.”

Some background: Since the UK imposed a lockdown on Saturday, over 40 countries in Europe, Asia, South America, the Caribbean and the Middle East have restricted travel from the UK and in some cases, also travel from other countries that have documented cases with the variant.

Experts say the new variants can spread faster than others.

Thailand imposes entertainment curbs in capital to thwart virus spread



BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thailand announced its first coronavirus death in nearly two months and tightened restrictions on entertainment businesses in its capital on Monday, in a bid to contain an outbreak that has reached more than half of the country's provinces.

Authorities confirmed 144 new infections on Monday as new clusters emerged stemming from its biggest outbreak yet, prompting a ban in Bangkok on betting businesses and midnight closures for its bars, nightclubs and music venues until Jan. 4.

Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul said he was undergoing two weeks of quarantine after exposure to an infected provincial governor, while house speaker Chuan Leekpai asked 29 parliamentary staffers to seek tests after meeting a person who contracted the virus.

The baht eased 0.3% on Monday while the stock market fell 2.3%, amid concerns about new curbs.

Thailand, the first country outside China to report a coronavirus infection, has recorded just 6,285 cases and 61 COVID-19 deaths, having brought earlier outbreaks under control.

Its success has been attributed to tight restrictions on inbound travel and swift testing and contact-tracing.

Bangkok's tighter measures follow similar regulations in some of the 43 provinces with cases since a big outbreak was discovered 11 days ago among migrant workers at a seafood market in Samut Sakhon, a province near the capital.

A cluster has been found in the eastern province of Rayong linked to a gambling den, with 92 infections in three days and one death, a 45-year-old man.

Pongsakorn Kwanmuang, spokesman for the Bangkok authorities, said a field hospital would also be set up in the capital and the restrictions reviewed next week.

The outbreak could hamper efforts to revive a crucial tourist industry devastated by the pandemic, as authorities ease some restrictions on foreigners and offer incentives to boost domestic travel.

India finds six cases of new coronavirus variant in UK arrivals




BENGALURU (Reuters) - India has found six people who returned from Britain in recent weeks infected with a more infectious strain of the coronavirus that has prompted a wave of panic and border closures around the world.

All six patients have been kept in isolation, the health ministry said in a statement on Tuesday, adding that their fellow travellers were being tracked down.

"Their close contacts have also been put under quarantine," the ministry said.

India has suspended all flights from Britain until the end of the month but about 33,000 passengers had flown in from late November, before the ban came into place, the ministry said.

Of those arrivals, 114 people were found positive for the coronavirus and their samples were being checked for the new variant, which has been detected across parts of Europe and Asia, the ministry said.

India on Tuesday reported 16,432 new cases of the virus, taking its total up to 10.22 million confirmed infections and 148,153 deaths.

The country has the second-highest case load in the world, behind only the United States. Health authorities expect to start a vaccination drive for some 300 million people early next month.

今增53宗確診 不明個案佔14宗 3名豐澤樓居民中招



新冠肺炎疫情持續,衞生署衞生防護中心傳染病處主任張竹君指,本港今(29日)新增53宗確診個案,累計病例有8,725宗。患者涉及23男30女,介乎6個月至86歲,當中3宗為輸入個案;50宗本地個案,其中14宗屬源頭不明,其餘36宗與其他個案相關。另有40多宗初步確診個案,包括3名黃大仙彩雲(二)邨豐澤樓居民,分屬2個單位。

另外,食物及衞生局副局長徐德義表示,由於確診宗數仍處於高位,當局有需要加強檢測,決定以後同一幢屋苑如在兩周內出現2宗無關連的確診單位,全幢居民便須強制檢測。而以往一般是同一大廈有4個無關連的確診單位才會發強檢令。

他又指,政府早前資助港大團隊監察污水的新冠肺炎病毒研究,發現豐澤樓的污水持續驗出病毒,並向大廈發出強制檢測公告,附近流動採樣站已為2,027名市民採樣,另一採樣站昨日(28日)亦已為721名市民採樣。

以色列75歲老翁接種輝瑞疫苗後 死於心臟病



週一 (28 日) 以色列衛生部宣布,以色列一名 75 歲老翁在注射輝瑞疫苗後 2 小時,死於心臟病發。

以色列於 20 日開始在 10 家醫院和疫苗接種中心擴大施打新冠疫苗,71 歲的以色列總理納坦雅胡公開接種新冠疫苗,鼓勵 60 歲以上年長者盡快注射疫苗。

以色列衛生部局長 Chezy Levy 週一宣布,一名 75 歲老翁在以色列貝特謝安 (Beit She'an) 衛生診所施打疫苗後短暫的待了一下,該診所確認老翁身體良好、且無副作用後,便讓他回家。然而,這名老翁卻在返家後兩小時內死於心臟病發。

Chezy Levy 稱:「我們同家屬深感悲傷。」

Chezy Levy 提到:「目前以色列衛生部已成立調查委員會調查此事,初步結果顯示,該名長者的死亡原因和疫苗並無直接關係。」長者家屬公開表示,切勿將死因與新冠疫苗聯想在一起。

以色列健康組織 Midaat 表示,可能會傳出不幸的情況,但我們不應從中推斷出疫苗的安全性,而是應該鼓勵 (輝瑞) 製藥公司在藥品審批過程中保持應有的透明度。成千上萬的大型試驗中,死亡可能與試驗沒有任何聯繫,但輝瑞等公司必須通報這些死亡數據。

目前以色列優先為醫護人員、60 歲以上長者和罹患慢性病的族群接種疫苗。

截至週一,以色列已為 38 萬人民接種第一劑疫苗,預計一個多月內為 225 萬以色列人民接種疫苗。據衛生部長稱,上週日已有 99,000 人接種疫苗。

美國護理師接種輝瑞疫苗 8天後確診武漢肺炎



美國聖地亞哥一名急診室護理師馬修(Matthew W.)近日施打輝瑞疫苗,不料接種後出現身體不適症狀,8天後確診武漢肺炎(亦稱新冠肺炎、COVID-19)。

45歲的馬修是聖地亞哥一所地方醫院急診室的護理師,他在本月18日接種輝瑞疫苗,表示除了手臂疼痛之外,並無其他副作用,他還開心在IG分享此事。想不到平安夜當晚,馬修開始出現全身發寒、肌肉痠痛、疲勞等症狀,他趕緊在耶誕節隔天篩檢,結果為陽性。他告訴美國媒體《ABC》,他的症狀在耶誕節過後緩解,但現在他但仍感覺疲勞。

聖地亞哥家庭健康中心傳染病專家拉默斯醫師(Dr. Christian Ramers)指出,馬修可能在接種疫苗前就染疫,因為病毒潛伏期有2週,他會出現這些症狀,是可以預料的。

拉默斯醫師說,馬修的症狀證明疫苗不會立刻出現功效,根據臨床試驗,輝瑞疫苗需要10到14天產生防禦作用,施打第一劑的效果約50%,施打第二劑後才能達到95%。

拉默斯醫師強調,這情況也說明了,即使接種了疫苗,民眾仍應帶口罩、勤洗手,防疫不能鬆懈。
