WATCH: President George Vella reveals what worried him most during the COVID-19 pandemic

WATCH: President George Vella revealed what worried him most during the COVID-19 pandemic
Jan 2 2022 Share

In a recent interview on Malta Daily’s The Interview with Fabian Demicoli, the President of Malta George Vella expressed his greatest pandemic worry and praised Malta’s health system in light of the increase in cases.

President Vella told Fabian Demicoli that he worried most when the virus began to enter elderly people’s homes and affect the individuals inside.

He went on to highlight how certain vulnerable individuals may suffer from one condition or another, anticipating a potential disaster. Despite his initial thoughts, the President praised the Health Authorities for ‘doing absolute miracles’ in controlling the situation, going on to commend the indescribable work done by carers who lived with the patients in these homes. “This is the beauty of Malta’s kind heart,” Vella said, continuing by mentioning officers working within the Corradino Correctional Facility who also understood the situation and importance of decreasing contact, thus basing themselves inside the facility.

A comparison was then made to the situation in countries like Italian, which saw fleets of army trucks equipped with coffins. The President saluted the memory of Malta’s 470+ casualties, which he called a true tragedy, but went on to state that Malta was lucky to have honest health officials who won the trust of the Maltese population and steer the country in the right direction.

Jake Paul says he will quit boxing if UFC boss Dana White meets his demands

Jake Paul says he will quit boxing if UFC boss Dana White meets his demands
Jan 2 2022 Share

Controversial to say the least, YouTuber turned boxer Jake Paul has given UFC boss Dana White 5 days to agree to a list of terms which, if implemented, will see Paul hanging up his gloves for good.

In a tweet posted on New Year’s Day, Paul stated he will retire from boxing and fight Jorge Masvidal in the UFC if Dana White agrees to and implements his three demands. A screenshot attached to the tweet requested that fighters’ minimum pay per fight increases from $12k to $50k, guarantees UFC fighters 50% of UFC annual revenues (which amounted to $1bn in 2021) and provides long term healthcare to all fighters.

The screenshot also highlighted Dana White’s previous statements that brain damage ‘is part of the gig’, reiterating that many UFC alumni public stated that they are suffering from brain damage. Paul would also enter the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency programme prior to his fight with Masvidal.

Despite being given 5 days to accept and until March 31st to implement, White has called such a list of demands ‘stupid’ and criticised Paul’s advisor and former UFC CFO Nakisa Bidarian.

Do you think Dana White will ever give in to Paul’s demands?
