South End Core propose protocol aimed at fans’ return to stadiums

 - Local - Feb 2 SHARE ON:

In a meeting with Parliamentary Secretary for Sport, Youth and Voluntary Organisations Clifton Grima, representatives of the South End Core have proposed new health protocol with the aim of safely bringing back fans to football stadiums in the near future.

The SEC have proposed that Malta’s match against Russia on 24 March be a ‘Pilot Testing’ match with a spectator-cap of 1,600 which would be followed by close monitoring for 14 days.

The monitoring would confirm whether or not spectators followed the protocol and confirm the absence of COVID-19 cases due to match attendance and if successful, fans would return to local matches from Mid-April.

MaltaDaily had interviewed the Parliamentary Secretary Secretary on the potential return of fans to stadiums back in December and addressed the importance of vigilance and careful discussion regarding this issue as we move closer towards normality.

The phrase ‘hands-free shoes’ seemed like a novelty a few years ago but the year is 2021 and we are officially in the future as Nike have announced their latest “easy on, easy off” shoe in the Go Flyease.

As you can see, the Go Flyease is the apparel company’s first pair of sneakers without laces and can be worn and removed without using one’s hands, thanks to their ground-breaking sneaker technology such as the tension band in the place of laces.

With Crocs trending again after all these years due to people searching for comfort with the least amount of effort, the Go Flyease may be the next must-have sneaker.

On Friday, the World Health Organisation updated its position with regards to pregnant women and the COVID-19 vaccine stating that there is no reason to believe in particular risks that outweigh the benefits of the vaccine.

However, the WHO also noted that pregnant women at high risk of exposure or those with vulnerabilities should discuss the issue with their doctors.

Record 210 illegally shot birds in Malta during 2020

 - Local - Feb 1 SHARE ON:

2020 marked a new record of illegal hunting in Malta. 210 protected birds were illegally shot last year. This fact was noted by the European Commissioner for the Environment as he voiced his concern about the number.

2018 was previously the record year for illegalities where the number stood at 114, the number almost doubled in 2020. These are of course only the reported birds which are found by the authorities.

A number of birds will not be recorded since they might be collected by hunters for their own reasons like taxidermy or even for food.
