Carnival is normally held in February around the world, with Maltese and Gozitan celebrations typically marked by a mass retreat to Gozo and a spectacle of multi-coloured floats and costumes in Valletta and other key points.

This year’s one-off summer activities were previously announced by Minister Owen Bonnici, with multiple dance competitions taking place in St. George’s Square in Valletta together with a défilé with King Carnival.

Nadur’s extravagant spontaneous carnival also returned with a bang this weekend, featuring a number of typically-satirical floats taking digs at public figures and current events. One in particular highlighted Żaren tal-Ajkla’s recent breast implant electoral proposal.

Did you attend any carnival festivities?

Monkeypox could accelerate in Europe as cases found in multiple countries, WHO warns

More than 80 Monkeypox cases in a minimum of 12 countries have been confirmed so far, as the World Health Organization (WHO) reports that another 50 cases are currently being investigated amid concerns of spreading.

Public health agencies in the UK, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Italy and Sweden have reported Monkeypox cases in Europe in addition to the United States, Canada and Australia.

Monkeypox is a rare viral infection which is quite common in certain parts of Central and West Africa, with the conditions being normally mild and recovery taking a few weeks. Despite this, the risk of wider public spread is considered to be very low.

WHO Europe regional director Hans Kluge has expressed concerns of spread in the summer, stating “as we enter the summer season… with mass gatherings, festivals and parties, I am concerned that transmission could accelerate.”

What do you make of this?

Turtle found dead in Maltese waters after eating balloon

Turtle found dead in Maltese waters after eating balloon

The dead carcass of a turtle was recovered by the Armed Forces of Malta in Maltese waters, after it had seemingly died from eating balloons. 

The somber news was released by Nature Trust – FEE Malta, appealing to the public to avoid using helium balloons as, once they are let off, they can have hazardous impacts on wildlife. 

The NGO highlighted a ten year campaign against such hazards, with even bio-degradables being dangerous to animals such as turtles and birds. 

Mistaken as food by many animals, the death of thousands of these creatures are caused by discord debris in our ecosystem. The turtle found was a very young loggerhead turtle, an endangered species around the world. 

An increase of patrols have started this week on sandy beaches at night to protect nesting turtles. The help of the public is greatly appreciated by the NGO, through simple acts like being mindful of using hazardous products and where to dispose of them.
