Gozo’s heliport may be extended to an airport in the coming weeks

Gozo's heliport may be extended to an airport in the coming weeks
Jan 28 2022 Share

In a recent announcement by Gozo Minister Clint Camilleri, it was revealed that Gozo’s heliport will be extended to be able to handle an 11-passenger small fixed-wing aircraft. Further plans will be revealed in the coming weeks.

Camilleri stated that such a development is natural for the Gozo service due to the expansion of public transport such as the recent addition of the fourth ferry between Malta & Gozo and the new fast ferry service. The airport will cater to fixed-wing aircrafts with a minimum environmental impact and it will not commit to more land than is already committed to the heliport.

The Minister had revealed that flight operators had previously expressed an interest in investing on such a service, even alluding to the possibility of flight schools and drone testing.

Do you welcome such a development?

As the beta version of Apple’s iOS 15.4 rolls out, it is accompanied by a number of brand new features such as Face ID accessibility whilst wearing a mask.  But more importantly, Apple have introduced a new wave of emojis.

37 brand new pictographs have been added to Apple’s emoji library and include everything from a saluting face, heart hands, lip biting and gender-neutral pregnant emojis. Others include a playground slide, bubbles, disco ball, equals sign, melting face and index finger pointing at the viewer.

The beta version of iOS 15.4 can be downloaded by users forming part of Apple’s developer program. That said, pre-release versions such as this can include bugs and may impede the device’s performance. The official version of iOS 15.4 is expected to roll out sometime during Spring 2022.

Pfizer anti-COVID pill approved by EU drug watchdog

Pfizer anti-COVID pill approved by EU drug watchdog
Jan 27 2022 Share

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has approved Pfizer’s coronavirus pill on Thursday. This makes it the first oral antiviral treatment for the disease to be authorised in Europe. 

The EU drug watchdog said in a statement it had ‘recommended authorising Paxlovid for treating COVID-19 in adults who are at increased risk of the disease becoming severe.’ 

Two types of tablets form part of the drug and is the first COVID-19 therapy which can be taken at home. This is potentially a massive step towards ending the pandemic. 

It has so far been authorised in a handful of countries including the USA, Canada and Israel. The EU had allowed member states to use it ahead of formal approval as an emergency measure against the South Africa discovered variant Omicron. 

It should be, in theory, more variant proof, as, unlike vaccines, it does not target the evolving spike protein which the virus uses to invade cells.
