Half of Australians back in lockdown and increasingly angry

Half of Australians back in lockdown and increasingly angry
Jul 21 2021 Share

Around 13 million Australians – approximately half the population – have to endure new lockdown rules despite the rising anger at the decision. As Australia fights to mitigate the spike of the COVID-19 virus, a third state, South Australia, joins Victoria and New South Wales in lockdown. Australia reports the worst rate in terms of vaccination – with just 14% having received the jab. Sydney and Melbourne, the country’s two biggest cities, also face uncertainty over reopening. 

Prime Minister Scott Morrison was criticised over the slow vaccination rate, despite him citing how Australia kept overall infections well below many nations and only recording 915 deaths. He compared this to the UK’s registering of 90 deaths in a single day despite the country’s full-blown easing of restrictions. Residents fear lockdown could extend into September, as they are only allowed to exit their homes for essential reasons such as exercise and shopping.

John Dalli demands apology from Repubblika after corruption allegation

John Dalli demands apology from Repubblika after corruption allegation
Jul 21 2021 Share

Former European Commissioner John Dalli has demanded an apology from civil society group Repubblika after being called an untouchable for police. During a protest held by the group yesterday evening outside the Floriana Police headquarters, Repubblika demanded action by the police on several alleged corruption cases which involve high-ranking government officials and businessmen, among whom Dalli was mentioned. 

Dalli himself, a former Nationalist Minister, was forced to resign from this post as European Commissioner in 2012 following an EU investigation. In 2013 he was appointed as a consultant on healthcare to ex-Prime Minister Joseph Muscat. In a statement this morning, Dalli stated that Repubblika (whom he called ‘exalted puppets’), decided to associate him with corruption. He also accuses the European Commission of obstructing justice as well as calling late journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia a ‘perverse criminal’ who, allegedly invented calumnies.

The calumnies referred to are him owning Egrant, being involved in 17 Black and being involved in the privatisation of hospitals. He ended the statement by demanding an apology from Repubblika or stating that he expects the allegations to be substantiated.

Jul 21 2021 Share

The health authorities have revealed that over 500 foreign students who came to Malta to study English tested positive for COVID-19. This means at least a quarter of the island’s active cases are young, mostly unvaccinated, students who travelled to the island. Times of Malta was informed by the health ministry about this following Malta’s placing on the EU’s travel red list. 

A spokesperson for the health ministry also told the newsroom that approximately 60% of the the daily cases are non-residents. The higher proportion of cases is situated in the under-19 age group. With language schools being forced to close last week to slow the rising spike in cases, hundreds of students are in Malta, with many in mandatory quarantine. Repatriation flights are also being planned, although it is unsure who will take charge in terms of paying the return.
