Warner Bros. has announced the filming of Wonder Woman 3 and expects it will be able to premiere in the cinemas! Covid-19 vaccines will be distributed to the regions next week. And what do the predictions for future travel look like? Find out all this and more in Monday's Early Bird.
Deliveries of the COVID-19 vaccine to arrive in the regions next week
Another delivery of the Pfizer and BioNTech vaccines will be distributed to the regions. This time, it will include a total of 19,500 doses intended for healthcare professionals and high risk groups. These are the only vaccines that have been approved for use in the European Union so far.
Prime Minister Andrej Babiš (ANO) announced on his Facebook profile that the new deliveries of the COVID-19 vaccine will be intended even for regional hospitals. At the same time, he asked citizens for patience, because health professionals and people for whom COVID-19 poses the greatest risk have to be vaccinated first.
"Other people will get their turn next,"
he said in his statement.
Predictions for traveling in 2021
Together with the arrival of vaccination against COVID-19 across continents, the question of the future of shopping, going to the cinema or traveling is beginning to be addressed. Several companies have already started developing smartphone applications enabling people to upload details about their tests and vaccinations. They want to create a digital track that could be shown, for example, when entering cinemas, offices or traveling to other countries.
The CommonPass application also cooperates with several airlines such as Lufthansa, Swiss Airlines or United Airlines. The app allows users to upload their medical data, such as the result of a COVID-19 test, proof of vaccination or a medical certificate, with which the users will prove themselves at the places of arrival and departure based on their itinerary.
Climate changes caused enormous losses in 2020
According to a report by Christian Aid Charity, the world paid a very high price for the extreme weather in 2020. The study of climate change provides tragic figures and mentions events that have resulted in the loss of thousands of lives and high insurance costs.
Most of the events took place in Asia. For example, floods in China and India caused more than $ 40 billion in damage last year. In the United States, hurricanes and fires have caused losses of about $ 60 million.
Trump signed a stimulus package
US President Donald Trump signed a bill on a stimulus package to support unemployed people affected by the coronavirus crisis, despite having initially refused to sign it.
Trump had originally refused to sign the bill, saying he would prefer to give people direct one-time payments. The delay caused by his hesitation has affected millions of Americans who lost their jobs. The $ 900 billion stimulus package has finally been approved by the US Congress after months of negotiations.
