Russian President Vladimir Putin stepping down amid health concerns: Report
Interesting

https://www.theblaze.com/news/vladimir-putin-stepping-down-health-concerns?utm_source=theblaze-dailyPM&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Daily-Newsletter__PM%202020-11-06&utm_term=ACTIVE%20LIST%20-%20TheBlaze%20Daily%20PM
Russian President Vladimir Putin is purportedly planning to step down in 2021 amid reports of health concerns, according to a new report from the Sun.
POLL: Who is the most corrupt?
What are the details?
Putin is reportedly planning to step down next year amid health concerns that the 68-year-old — who has been the Russian president off and on for the last two decades — is suffering from Parkinson's disease.

Moscow political scientist Valery Solovei told the outlet that Putin's girlfriend, Alina Kabaeva, and his two adult daughters are pushing him to leave office come January.

"There is a family, it has a great influence on him," Solovei told the outlet. "He intends to make public his handover plans in January."

Solovei also appeared to suggest that the Russian president is suffering from Parkinson's disease or a similar musculoskeletal condition.

The Sun reported, "Kremlin watchers said recent tell-tale footage showed the 68-year-old strongman had possible symptoms of Parkinson's disease."


"Observers who studied recent footage of Putin noted his legs appeared to be in constant motion and he looked to be in pain while clutching the armrest of a chair," the outlet continued. "His fingers are also seen to be twitching as he held a pen and gripped a cup believed to contain a cocktail of painkillers."

The New York Post reported that speculation over Putin's plans and alleged medical condition comes as Russian lawmakers consider Putin-proposed legislation that would grant former Russian presidents a lifetime of immunity from any and all criminal prosecution.

If approved, the legislation would entitle a former president to a lifetime seat as a senator in the country's federation council.

At the time of this reporting, Russian presidents are only protected from convictions while maintaining presidential office.

A spokesperson for the Kremlin told the Sun that speculation on Putin's alleged medical condition is "nonsense" and that the Russian president is in "excellent health" and that "everything is fine."

"Putin" quickly became a top-trending term on Twitter Thursday night as news of the allegations broke.

US Marshals rescue 25 missing children from Ohio; many are victims of human trafficking or prostitution
In a separate undercover sting operation, 27 men were arrested after allegedly attempting to engage in sexual activity with minors
Shane T. McCoy / US Marshals

U.S. Marshals located 25 missing and endangered children from Ohio in the past 20 days of an ongoing operation. U.S. Marshals worked with state and local agencies in Ohio to track down missing children in Operation Safety Net.

POLL: Who had the best speech at Night 4 of the RNC?
The missing children, who were between the ages of 13 and 18, were found in Cleveland, East Cleveland, Euclid, Willoughby, and as far away as Miami, Florida. U.S. Marshals noted that a quarter of the endangered children were victims of human trafficking and prostitution.

"These are kids that have been abused, neglected. Some involved in human trafficking," U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott told WOIO-TV. "Sometimes the situations they—they go to, believe it or not, may be better than the situations they left from. We've had some cases where the mother and or father, or both, may have been prostituting their own child."
"We're trying to do our part. A number of these children have gone to the hospital after we've recovered them to get checked out, so again this is something we take very seriously," Elliott added. "I'll tell you this, it will be something we'll be doing every year. This is our first time we have done this, it's been uncharted territory for us, but we've had great success."


The Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force, Cleveland Division of Police, the Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Department, the East Cleveland Police Department, and the Newburgh Heights Police Department are assisting U.S. Marshals in Operation Safety Net, according to the Mansfield News Journal.

Operation Safety Net will continue for a few more weeks, and it has a goal to find the approximately 200 missing children from Northeast Ohio.

Information about the whereabouts of missing children can be provided at the U.S. Marshals tip line at 1-866-492-6833.
Earlier this week, U.S. Marshals rescued 26 missing children and safely located 13 during "Operation Not Forgotten." The endangered children, who ranged in age from 3 to 17, were found in Georgia and Florida. Of the 39 children, 15 were victims of sex trafficking.

In a separate operation called "Operation Moving Target," 27 men were arrested in Cuyahoga County, Ohio. The men reportedly engaged in sexually explicit online conversations with undercover officers while posing as children, according to Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael O'Malley.
During the four-day undercover operation that took place this week, men contacted, who they believed to be minors via social media apps. "The defendants apparently expressed an interest in engaging in sexual activity with the purported children and/or disseminated images of their genitals during these online conversations," according to WKYC-TV.

The men, between the ages of 21 and 61, allegedly traveled to a vacant house in Cuyahoga County, according to the prosecutor's office. When the men arrived at the house, authorities were there to arrest and take them to the county jail.

Several of the suspects had condoms, personal lubricant, sex toys, and drugs in their possession when they were arrested, officials say.

Many of the suspects were charged with attempted unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, disseminating matter harmful to juveniles, importuning, and possession of criminal tools.
Operation Moving Target was coordinated by the Ohio ICAC Task Force, and worked in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Department of Justice, the FBI, the U.S. Secret Service, the Ohio Adult Parole Authority, Ohio BCI, Newburgh Heights Police, Solon Police, Kent Police, Streetsboro Police, Cortland Police, and Cleveland Police.
The suspects include:
Rajwant Singh, 44, Mayfield Heights
Adam Davis, 41, Painesville
Germaine Truett, 38, Cleveland
Jason Johnson, 37, Cleveland
Ronel Washington, 24, Garfield Heights

BREAKING: A series of attacks in the Philippines has left scores injured and at least 14 dead.

It is said,they are soldiers and civilians attacked by a woman terrorist islamic terrorism wearing bombs in her body

Twin Bombings in South Philippines Leaves 14 Killed, and 75 Wounded
(ETH) – A series of attacks in the Philippines has left scores injured and at least 14 dead. According to CBN, Muslim militants along with the Islamic State triggered a powerful motorcycle explosive followed by a suicide bombing on Monday killing many soldiers.

The attack is deemed the worst extremist attack in the Philippines this year, according to military officials. The attack has left at least 75 soldiers, police officers, and civilians wounded in the bombings that took place in Jolo town in southern Sulu province.

This attack comes as the government there continues to grapple with the highest number of coronavirus infections in Southeast Asia. In more detail of the report, it was stated that most of the victims, including children, were killed and wounded in the first attack when a bomb was reportedly attached to a motorcycle and set off near two parked army trucks in front of a grocery store and computer shop in Jolo.

“It was a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device which exploded while our soldiers were on a marketing run,” Vinluan told reporters. The second blast, was carried out from a female suicide attacker, and took place about an hour after the first attack and killed the bomber, a soldier, a police commando, and wounded several others.

The suspected bomber was said to have walked out of a snack shop, approached soldiers who were securing a Roman Catholic cathedral, and “suddenly blew herself up.”  Snipers were then deployed in the region to guard against more bombers as the victims were carried to an ambulance. It was later discovered that a third bomb was reportedly discovered in a public market but was never detonated. Jolo was immediately placed in a security lockdown by troops and police.

DF officers simulate war with Hezbollah
 Thursday, August 6, 2020 |Worthy News

israel map worthy christian news
(Worthy News) - Officers from the 401st Armored Brigade as well as from the Givati and Nahal infantry brigades were training when The Jerusalem Post visited IDF Training Command Headquarters at the Julis base near Ashkelon this week to watch as they virtually trained for a future war with Hezbollah.

“It’s like a videogame, but these are real places where troops and officers might go,” said Col. Eliav Elbaz, commander of the brigade’s training base.

Officers experience fighting in simulated urban terrain similar to that of Lebanon, complete with the street they might find themselves walking down and the mosque they might pass when in a village in southern Lebanon, he said. [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More...) ]

https://www.crosswalk.com/blogs/dr-james-emery-white/faith-freedom-and-face-masks.html?utm_source=Crosswalk&utm_campaign=Connecting%20through%20Crisis%20-%20Crosswalk.com&utm_medium=email&utm_content=3489534&bcid=aca0ec8e3bea4e78ac0738d678528c86&recip=488938472%20
Faith, Freedom, and Face Masks
   Jul 23 2020
The opinion page cartoon from the U.K. was telling: a series of iconic statues from around the world, from Christ the Redeemer in Brazil to Michelangelo’s David, all wearing face masks with the caption, “We’re all in it together.”
Except for the final statue, the Statue of Liberty, which, while masked, had an American leaning out of the top of her crown shouting, “Except it imposes on my personal freedom!”
People in other countries are genuinely dumbfounded by our “mask” divide. To have something as basic as wearing a mask in the midst of a pandemic in order to control its spread become a partisan issue is confusing to many Americans as well. Why is there such a belligerent attitude toward wearing a mask in public in the name of public health?
The answer that is often given is the defense of personal freedom. Yes, it is often coupled with the distrust of government, doctors, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and all things “deep state.” But the heart of the Facebook/Instagram/Twitter rebellion is freedom.
Might I humbly submit something to consider? What would it mean to put thinking ahead of feeling, public service before personal freedom, and Christ before ourselves? Particularly in light of three very important truths.
First, Face Masks Matter
While there may have been confusing, conflicting reports early on during the outbreak, there is now growing evidence that facemasks help reduce the transmission of droplets. As reported in the Wall Street Journal:
“Face masks are emerging as one of the most powerful weapons to fight the novel coronavirus, with growing evidence that facial coverings help prevent transmission—even if an infected wearer is in close contact with others. Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said he believes the pandemic could be brought under control over the next four to eight weeks if ‘we could get everybody to wear a mask right now.’”
Second, Freedom Has Limits
Individual freedom ends where the safety and well-being of another begins. We think nothing of collectively restricting the freedom of someone smoking a cigarette in an enclosed public space due to the dangers of second-hand smoke. That is a clear limitation of personal freedom for the safety and health of others. Yes, you have the freedom to smoke. No, you don’t have the freedom to harm others in the process. Wearing a mask never killed anyone; not wearing one just might.
Finally, the Christian Faith Has Clear Commands Regarding Interaction With Others
This has been brought into a fresh application in the midst of a pandemic. Commands such as doing to others as we would have done to us and countless other “death to self for the sake of another’s well-being” charges. Could it be that wearing a mask in public settings where social distancing isn’t possible, or in enclosed places where the risk of spread runs higher, is simply a matter of loving our neighbor, or taking a bowl of water and a towel and washing their feet?
I don’t like wearing a mask, but when asked to do so, when it would serve others to do so, I do.
Why?
We’re in a pandemic and wearing a mask is arguably—short of a vaccine—the most important weapon we have.
We’re in a pandemic and my personal freedom ends where the needs of public health begin.
We’re in a pandemic, and it’s one of the clearest, easiest ways to show the love of Jesus to others.

Massive landslide blocks river in Hubei, prompting more than 8 000 residents to evacuate, China

Massive landslide blocks river in Hubei, prompting more than 8 000 residents to evacuate, China
A massive landslide of about 10 million cubic m (350 million cubic feet) blocked a river in central China's Hubei Province, resulting in a barrier lake that prompted authorities to evacuate more than 8 000 residents on Tuesday, July 21, 2020.
The barrier lake was formed around 21:30 UTC on July 20 (05:30 LT on July 21), when a massive chunk of earth fell on the Qingjiang River-- a tributary of Yangtze River in the Enshi Tukia and Miao Autonomous Prefecture, according to the city's flood control and drought relief headquarters.
An hour later, a huge chunk of 1.5 million cubic m (53 million cubic feet) of earth slid into the river, as reported by Fu Qiang, an engineer with the Hubei Geological Bureau, at a press conference late Tuesday night.
Fu added that the landslide body is constantly changing.
On the same day, around 02:15 UTC (10:15 LT), water from the upper reach broke through the top of the lake, discharging at 200 cubic m per second (7 000 cubic feet per second), easing the risk of the dam breaking.
A total of 8 397 residents of 1 963 households from the affected areas have been evacuated as of 07:00 UTC (15:00 LT), mayor Su Yong confirmed.

Extreme, record rains lead to deadly floods and massive disruption in Sicily, Italy
Deadly flash floods caused by severe thunderstorms lashed parts of Sicily, Italy, on Wednesday, July 15, 2020, resulting in massive disruption. Palermo City's astronomical observatory recorded 74 mm (3 inches) of rain in just a few hours, breaking the previous wettest July day record set 85 years ago.​ Palermo mayor described the downpour as the worst since 1970 -- 'equal to what the city registers in a year.'
Underpasses were submerged while streets turned into raging rivers, sweeping away many vehicles and covering them in muddy debris. 
Hundreds of motorists were forced to abandon their cars as torrential rains inundated tunnels.
Two people went missing after their car was swept away by floodwaters. The pair tried to take shelter in an underpass, but the road quickly became inundated, trapping them inside. Search and rescue operations are ongoing.
Nine people sustained injuries and two children were treated for hypothermia.


"I'm from Palermo and truly I've never had so much anxiety in my life," one local said as she shared photos of the devastating scene, showing numerous cars stuck in floodwaters. "Whoever is from Palermo area, stay at home."
According to a statement by Palermo mayor Leoluca Orlando, over 1 m (3.3 feet) of rain fell in less than two hours. "It is the most violent rain in the history of the city since 1970, equal to what we receive in a year."


While his rainfall data is exaggerated -- as Palermo has an annual rainfall average of 615 mm (24.2 inches) -- in terms of how violent the rain was, Orlando was spot on since the city records only about 5 mm (0.2 inches) of rain in the entire month of July.


The city's observatory registered 74 mm (3 inches) of rain in just a few hours, smashing the previous 24-hour July rainfall record set on July 6, 1935, with 39.2 mm (1.5 inches). Other private weather stations recorded more than 100 mm (4 inches) within a short period of time.

Scene of June 30 explosion near TehranReuters

An explosion was heard in western Tehran on Thursday night, Reuters reported, citing the official IRIB news agency.

IRIB did not provide any additional information about the cause of the blast or possible casualties.
http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/283312
Electricity has been cut in the area of the explosion in suburbs west of Tehran, it reported.

There have been multiple explosions around military, nuclear and industrial facilities in the past week.

Two people were killed in an explosion at a factory in the south of Tehran on Tuesday.

Last Thursday, Iran announced that an "accident" had occurred at the Natanz nuclear complex in central Iran.

On Sunday, an unnamed Middle Eastern intelligence official with knowledge of the “accident” at Natanz told The New York Times that Israel was responsible for the attack, which he said was carried out using a powerful bomb.

Also last week, 19 people were killed in an explosion at a medical clinic in the north of Tehran, which an official said was caused by a gas leak.

On June 26, an explosion occurred east of Tehran near the Parchin military and weapons development base. In this incident, as well, authorities said the explosion was caused by a leak at a gas storage facility in an area outside the base

Trump Administration Removes Transgender Health Discrimination Protections
The US Department of Health published a new rule Friday asserting that protection against “sex discrimination” in health care applies only to people who are biologically male or female. Focussed on Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act, the final rule rolls back an Obama-era regulation which had added “gender identity” as grounds under which a person could suffer health care discrimination. Religious and conservative groups have welcomed the rule as protecting freedom of conscience and allowing federally funded medical practitioners and insurance companies to refuse the provision or coverage of transgender treatments. However, human rights groups are concerned the rule will leave trans-Americans without access to standard needed health care that is unrelated to sex change.

Wuhan lab 'most likely' coronavirus source, U.S. government analysis finds

covid coronavirus worthy christian news
(Worthy News) - A Wuhan laboratory is the “most likely” source of the COVID-19 outbreak now ravaging the globe, according to a U.S. government analysis that catalogs the evidence and concludes that other explanations for the origin of the coronavirus are less credible.
The document, compiled from open sources and not a finished product, says there is no smoking gun to blame the virus on either the Wuhan Institute of Virology or the Wuhan branch of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, both located in the city where the first outbreaks were reported.
But “there is circumstantial evidence to suggest such may be the case,” the paper says.
“All other possible places of the virus’s origin have been proven to be highly unlikely,” the document concludes. A copy of the report, compiled this month, was obtained by The Washington Times.

iran united states worthy news editor
(Worthy News) - The United States has circulated a draft U.N. resolution that would indefinitely extend a U.N. arms embargo on Iran set to expire in October, a move almost certain to spark opposition from Russia, which has made no secret of its desire to resume conventional weapons sales to Tehran, U.S. officials and U.N. diplomats said Tuesday.

The draft document, which as of Tuesday had been circulated only to a small number of Security Council members, would strike the expiration of the arms embargo from the council resolution that endorsed the 2015 nuclear deal between six major powers and Iran, according to Trump administration officials and U.N. diplomats, who were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The U.S. officials said the aim is to present the resolution for a vote in May when Estonia, a NATO member and close U.S. ally that is not party to the nuclear deal, holds the rotating presidency of the Security Council.

UK government planning to ban minors from access to gender reassignment surgery

london worthy christian news britiian parliament
by Karen Faulkner, Worthy News Correspondent
(Worthy News) - A UK cabinet minister has said the government is planning legislation that would prohibit minors from receiving gender reassignment surgery, the Daily Telegraph reported. Equalities Minister Liz Truss was addressing a parliamentary committee last week when she stated it was important to protect minors from making such irreversible decisions.
Under the UK's Gender Recognition Act, minors diagnosed with gender dysphoria can have genital reconstructive surgery with parental approval and after a two-year waiting period. Following a two-year public consultation on gender recognition reform, Ms. Truss said the government would publish a full response to revising the current legislation this summer.

Giving evidence to the Women and Equalities Select Committee, the minister explained: “I believe strongly that adults should have the freedom to lead their lives as they see fit.” However, she added: “I think it's very important that while people are still developing their decision-making capabilities that we protect them from making those irreversible decisions.”

According to the Daily Telegraph, the government’s plans have been criticized by transgender rights charities as introducing “a new form of inequality into British medical practice.”

Ms. Truss also set out several “very important principles,” she said the government would implement with the proposed legislation, the Daily Telegraph reported. The principles included the “protection of single-sex spaces” and “maintaining the proper checks and balances” while ensuring transgender adults can live free from fear of persecution.

By Stefan J. Bos, Special Correspondent Worthy News
(Worthy News) - Protests against lengthy coronavirus-related lockdowns have spread in Europe where most people have died in the global pandemic, devastating economies and wracking lives of millions. In Germany, the continent's largest economy, police detained dozens of protesters over the weekend for violating the strict lockdown measures they were demonstrating against.

About 1,000 people turned out for the rally in Berlin, the capital, which has become a weekly event there, witnesses said. This weekend's protest attracted mainly far-left activists as well as some right-wing supporters and members of other fringe groups. Police put up barriers around Rosa Luxemburg square, where demonstrators headed, warning them the protest "is not in line with the rules."

Several activists wore T-shirts accusing Chancellor Angela Merkel of "banning life," while others called for "freedom." Others brandished placards bearing slogans such as "Stop the pharmaceutical lobby." The protest was unauthorized as a result of emergency rules in Berlin banning gatherings of more than 20 people.

But protesters called for "an end to the state of emergency" as Germany has one of the lowest death tolls for the virus. Nearly 6,000
people died in Germany of the coronavirus disease COVID-19. Anger also erupted along the Polish-German border. Polish residents who work in Germany reportedly protested against the border closure, with many chanting to let them work. Poland was one of the first European Union states to close borders due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Elsewhere in Europe, hundreds of protesters took to the streets in Austria in defiance of a police ban against the gathering. Some 200 people rallied in the capital Vienna demanding an end to restrictions that have been in the alpine nation for more than a month, footage showed.

The protests followed several days of riots in Paris, France, where residents in low-income suburbs have been outraged about lockdowns and perceived heavy handiness by police. Anti-lockdown demonstrations have not become as typical in Europe as they have in the United States, where protesters rallied in several states. Governments in Europe are only slowly reopening countries as the death toll passed 116,000 deaths over the weekend. Worldwide more than 200,000 people have died of COVID-19, according to official estimates.

EU Unveils $580 Billion Aid Package Amid Virus Lockdowns

(Worthy News) - After the U.S. unveiled similar measures, the European Union has approved a $580 billion aid package to help limit the devastating economic consequences of coronavirus pandemic lockdowns in member states. However, beyond the immediate aid, the dispute remains over the structure - and funding – of a long-term recovery plan. It emerged this weekend that the European Commission, the EU's executive, has now been tasked to make proposals by May 6, when another video conference will be held.

Several EU member states such as Italy and Spain, two of the countries worst hit by the pandemic, demand that the next long-term EU budget starting from January 1 next year will be the cornerstone of the recovery efforts. But northern countries such as Denmark and the Netherlands oppose paying for poorer southern nations they see as financially irresponsible.

Despite the tensions, European Council President Charles Michel says he expects the package to be operational by June 1. Michel said it would help pay lost wages, keep companies afloat, and fund health care systems. "We all agreed that the health and safety of our citizens come first." He added that "We also agreed to continue to follow the situation closely in particular as we approach the holiday season-. [We agreed] to coordinate as much as possible to ensure a gradual and orderly lifting of restrictions."

At the virtual summit, the EU leaders also agreed on a recovery fund. But they declined to give a specific figure to rebuild the economies of this 27-nation bloc with 446 million inhabitants - the world's third-largest population after China and India. However, EU officials reportedly said $1.1 trillion to $1.6 trillion would be needed. That trails spending by the United States, which has 333 million people.

Last month, U.S. President Donald Trump signed a massive $2.2 trillion stimulus package. And on Friday Trump added $484 billion for especially small businesses, to rescue an economy suffering from the coronavirus pandemic.

Fact Check: This picture of coffins has no relation to Covid-19 deaths in Italy
A picture showing a hall full of coffins has gone viral on social media with the claim that these are the coffins of Covid-19 patients who died in a single day in Italy. What is the truth behind it?

Arjun Deodia 
New Delhi
March 22, 2020UPDATED: March 22, 2020 17:50 IST
 
The picture is indeed from Italy but it is seven years old and has nothing to do with the coronavirus outbreak.
With over 4,800 deaths, Italy has seen the highest number of casualties due to the coronavirus outbreak. And now, a picture showing a hall full of coffins has gone viral on social media with the claim that these are the coffins of Covid-19 patients who died in a single day in Italy.

The caption along with the viral photo says, "Stop making mockery of CORONAVIRUS. CORONAVIRUS is real. See what happened in Italy. All these died in one day".


India Today Anti Fake News War Room (AFWA) has found the claim along with the viral photo to be false. The picture is indeed from Italy but it is seven years old and has nothing to do with the coronavirus outbreak.

The picture along with the misleading claim has been shared by thousands on social media (https://bit.ly/2vEUHzS).

Using Google reverse image search, we found the viral photo on Getty Images, which said these are coffins of African migrants killed in a shipwreck off Lampedusa island in Italy. The photo was taken on October 5, 2013, at Lampedusa airport.

The incident was widely reported in the media at that time. More than 350 migrants from Africa were on their way to Italy when the mishap took place.

Coronavirus scourge in Italy

A report by "Al Jazeera" says "Italy announced 793 more deaths on March 21, the second day in a row of the biggest day-to-day increase in the country's four-week epidemic, after surpassing China's death toll on Thursday".

It was also reported that the Italian army was ferrying coffins from Bergamo, its worst-hit town, to remote cremation sites because local morgues were not able to cope with the surging death toll.

Leading Christian Apologist Ravi Zacharias Reveals He Has Rare Cancer, Asks for Prayers to Reduce Pain
World-renowned Christian apologist Ravi Zacharias announced in a Facebook post Thursday that he has a malignant tumor of the sacrum, a very rare cancer called Sarcoma.
"We wanted to give you an update on my health, as we know so many of you have been praying and we are so grateful. As many of you know, I underwent surgery to repair my back 3 weeks ago today. The surgery was considered a success, and the surgeon felt it was a strong reconstruction. However, since the surgery I have faced very severe pain, so intense in the night, especially, that I have been unable to sleep," Zacharias, 73, wrote in the post.

"While we have assumed this pain was a natural consequence of the surgery, we have learned in the past week that a biopsy taken during the procedure revealed that I have a malignant tumor on my sacrum—a very rare cancer called Sarcoma. Indeed, we now know this is the cause of my extreme pain. In the past few days, we have been meeting with specialists to determine the next course of action. They will wait until I am fully healed from the back surgery, and in 4-5 weeks, will begin treatment to shrink the tumor. I will not plan to resume speaking at least until the summer," he shared.

(Worthy News) - Researchers in China have found that two different types of the new coronavirus could be causing infections worldwide.

In a preliminary study published Tuesday, scientists at Peking University’s School of Life Sciences and the Institut Pasteur of Shanghai found that a more aggressive type of the new coronavirus had accounted for roughly 70% of analyzed strains, while 30% had been linked to a less aggressive type.

The more aggressive type of virus was found to be prevalent in the early stages of the outbreak in Wuhan — the Chinese city where COVID-19 was first detected late last year. [ Source: CNBC (Read More...) ]

Israeli emergency services organisation Magen David Adom offered the Turkish government assistance this week after a powerful earthquake triggered a humanitarian response.

The magnitude 6.7 quake in Elazig province was felt in countries such as Georgia, Armenia and Syria. It killed at least 36 people and injured around 1,600 others, with 45 pulled alive from the rubble.


MDA director General Eli Bin extended Israeli assistance to Dr Kerem Kinik, president of the Turkish Red Crescent. “We are anxiously tracking developments,” he said on Monday.

“Our heart goes out to the Turkish people and to those who have lost loved ones. The Turkish Red Crescent is respected and highly experienced in responding to disasters.”

MDA has offered to help Turkey deal with natural disasters before, and Eli Bin said: “I am confident in the alliance that we have built and view this as an opportunity to offer assistance if necessary.”

The Turkish Red Crescent has set up a control centre in the capital Ankara and a field kitchen capable of feeding 5,000 people daily, with 2,500 shelter tents set up for families, blood supplied to hospitals and mental health teams made available.

“I view this as an opportunity for collaboration and offer all assistance towards saving lives anywhere in the world,” said Eli Ben. “This is how MDA has operated in the past and will continue to do so.”
