Society’s ever-changing nature has dictated the norms and beliefs of work and family life for as long as we can remember but it doesn’t necessarily mean that they are correct.

In a video released earlier today by the Human Rights Directorate, Ben Camille & his wife Kristina took part in an exercise which highlights the pressure put on women in today’s environment and the benefits of balancing work-life responsibilities.

The video challenges the very-dated term of ‘Xogħol il-mara’ and attempts to highlight how much easier it is when couples work together to balance life’s challenges together.

Despite work being carried out daily on the importance of balancing life’s challenges, unfortunately many of today’s families adhere to the old-fashioned beliefs that a woman’s place is at home doing housework while the man is the breadwinner and we must unite to change this state of mind.

Both Denmark and Netherlands have placed Malta on their yellow travel list, which means that Danish and Dutch citizens can now travel to Malta without having to adhere to 15-day quarantines. Authorities of these respective countries have advised against non-essential travel to all other countries except Malta, following in Germany’s footsteps a few days ago.

Minister for Tourism and Consumer Protection Clayton Bartolo stated that the ‘Maltese government’s strategy of a strong vaccination roll out complimented with restrictive measures aimed at being was in a gradual manner are the main ingredients behind this sterling news.’

These changes in travel restrictions came as a surprise to many considering that the UK has left Malta off its green list for travel. But these changes still bode well for Malta’s tourism economy as the 1st June approaches.

President Joe Biden has announced, based on CDC guidance, that fully vaccinated US citizens no longer need to wear masks in public. The US has administered more than 267 million doses, with the number of fully vaccinated people reaching up to 119 million (36.3%). This news also follows after the CDC authorised the Pfizer vaccine’s use for emergency among adolescents aged 12 to 15.

The US has had one of the highest numbers of COVID-19 cases and a death count reaching over 585,000. The vaccine rollout however has mitigated the spread as US health authorities work towards achieving herd immunity. Vaccine hesitancy also contributed to the slow progress, as people who demand the vaccine have dwindled in number, forcing many states to create incentives for citizens to get the jab.
