Italy could introduce Super Green Passes and mandatory masks

Italy’s government is currently engaging in talks to determine whether to tighten it’s COVID-19 measures as cases spike significantly. Among the measures currently being proposed, an update to the vaccine certificate is being recommended from December. According to reports in Italian media, a Super Green Pass would no longer be obtained through a negative COVID test.

Instead, the pass is being recommended only for those who have been vaccinated or have recovered from the virus. Establishments will thus be only accessible through the use of such a pass. Whether this will allow access to metros or buses remains to be seen. 

A negative test would be enough to allow citizens to go to work and to board a train or plane. The government is also expected to decide whether or not masks should be made publicly mandatory once again. Other talks are also considering making vaccination mandatory in Italy. This follows a move by Austria which very recently took this decision, making the jab mandatory from February 2022.

Konrad Mizzi remains in hospital recovering from serious illness

Konrad Mizzi remains in hospital recovering from serious illness

Konrad Mizzi remains in hospital recovering from a serious illness. He will be missing another parliamentary committee meeting on Wednesday which was meant to question him over the Electrogas deal. 

Times of Malta was informed by sources that it is unlikely that Mizzi will appear before the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) until after the new year. Only three sittings remain before the House goes into its Christmas recess. 

Mizzi is not expected to have fully recovered before then, with the next two PAC meetings hearing the testimony of shareholder Paul Apap Bologna instead. Mizzi was admitted to hospital earlier this month with fever and peritonitis. 

On admission, his condition was deemed potentially life threatening by medical staff. The PAC was meant to hear Mizzi’s testimony as part of its probe into the Electrogas power station deal, which is filled with allegations of corruption.

Girl who voiced giant Squid Game doll not allowed to watch show

Girl who voiced giant Squid Game doll not allowed to watch show

Despite Squid Game being Netflix’s biggest show ever, a cultural debate over whether young kids should be allowed to watch the gory show also struck the internet.And ironically enough, Reagan To, the ten year old girl who voiced the giant Red Light Green Light doll in the English language dub of the series, isn’t being allowed to watch the series by her parents. 

The young voice actress spoke to The Morning Show in Australia through video chat, saying that she hasn’t watched any of it. ‘My mum has shown me just a little bit but right before the violent part she just dropped it. And even my brother, he’s fourteen, and my parents don’t even allow him to watch it.’ 

Even those who haven’t watched the series have a semblance of what the Red Light Green Light scene consisted of. Some schools even raised concerns over kids playing non-murderous but still problematic versions of the game on the yard. The TV show hosts however went on to play an online stream version with Reagan to finish off the programme. She was a massive sport despite not having watched any of it. Who knows whether she’ll get a voice cameo in season 2.
