    Modi announces federal takeover of India's vaccination program

    Facing growing criticism over India's botched COVID-19 response, the PM has said all adults will be offered free jabs in a major policy reversal. The announcement comes as India cautiously lifts restrictions.


    India's infection numbers have been driven by massive 'super-spreader' events including political rallies staged by Modi

    Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, speaking in a televised national address on Monday, declared that the federal government would once again be taking control of the country's coronavirus vaccination program and offering free vaccinations to all adults in the country.

    "All those above 18 will get free vaccinations," Modi said, announcing that the program will start on June 21, "Whether it is the poor, the lower-middle class, the middle class, or the upper-middle class — under the federal government program, everyone will get free vaccines."

    "We will increase the speed of procuring vaccines and also increase the pace of the vaccination program," the prime minister said. Under the new policy, 75% of all vaccines made in India are to be purchased by the national government with private hospitals able to purchase the remaining 25%.
    New policy could keep Indian hospitals from marking up vaccine prices

    The changes reverse a previous policy, launched in April, that tasked states and the private sector with vaccinating those between the ages of 18 and 44. Under that prior policy, the central government gave free shots to front-line workers and people over 45 — with states and private hospitals left to give jabs to those between 18 and 44.

    In his remarks, Modi said private hospitals would not be allowed to charge patients more than 150 rupees ($2.06 / €1.70) over the cost of each dose. Under the previous policy, states competed against one another as well as private institutions to acquire doses, making them both scarce and expensive — as well as leading to accusations that companies and hospitals were profiting off the situation.

    "The center would have a lot more clout in dealing with the multinationals ... rather than individual states or smaller players directly negotiating with these companies," as Sudarshan Ballal, chairman at Manipal Hospitals, told Reuters news agency.

    India's vaccine program 'arbitrary and irrational' says Supreme Court

    Pressure has been mounting on Modi and his government over its disastrous handling of the pandemic, especially after a new variant began driving infection rates ever higher, pushing official new infections to a peak of more than 400,000 a day in May. Last week, the Supreme Court of India called the country's vaccination program "arbitrary and irrational," bemoaning its inefficiency and inequity.

    To date, India has administered just over 222 million vaccinations — less than 5% of the country's estimated adult population of 950 million has been fully inoculated. Some hospitals say a uniform vaccine distribution policy could ease the burden of procurement and prices.

    Observers say the new policy will help get the situation under control, "This [centralized inoculation policy] eliminates states having to compete with one another for vaccine supplies, leaving them to concentrate on distributing them rapidly to their populations," as Gautam Menon, professor of physics and biology at Ashoka University in Delhi, said.

    India has been administering the AstraZeneca vaccine, produced locally by the Serum Institute; Covaxin, made by local firm Bharat Biotech; and will launch Russia's Sputnik V this month.

    India eases lockdown measures as infections drop

    This week, India's capital, New Delhi, and its financial hub, Mumbai, also began easing lockdowns that have been in place since April as infection levels have begun to fall.

    In New Delhi, businesses and shops will be allowed to reopen, albeit with limited hours, and its subway will resume operations at 50% capacity. In Mumbai and across the coastal state of Maharashtra — which was one of the worst-hit in April and May — malls, movie theaters, restaurants and offices reopened in districts where test positivity rates have fallen below 5%. Maharashtra's huge rail network, however, will remain closed.

    Some health experts fear restrictions are being eased too soon and there are concerns the virus is still spreading unchecked through India's rural villages, where testing and medical care are extremely limited.

    With new infections and deaths declining, the government hopes that reopening the country could resuscitate its economy — which grew at only a 1.6% annual rate in the January-March quarter.

    India documented 100,636 new official coronavirus cases over the past 24 hours, bringing its total number of infections close to 29 million, second only to the United States. On Monday, the Indian Ministry of Health and Family Welfare announced that 2,427 people had died from COVID-19 over the previous 24 hours, pushing the overall death toll to 349,186.

    Both figures are widely believed to be massive undercounts.

    Nhật Bản sẽ bảo vệ tàu chiến Úc theo luật an ninh mới




    Các tàu Hải quân Úc sẽ được Lực lượng Phòng vệ Nhật Bản bảo đảm an ninh nếu yêu cầu, theo một thỏa thuận ngày 09/06/2021 liên quan đến luật an ninh quốc gia mới do chính quyền tiền nhiệm thông qua. Như vậy Úc là quốc gia thứ hai sau Hoa Kỳ được hưởng quyền này.

    Theo báo Nhật Asahi, thỏa thuận đã đạt được sau cuộc họp qua video giữa lãnh đạo quốc phòng và ngoại giao hai nước. Phía Nhật Bản là ngoại trưởng Toshimitsu Motegi và bộ trưởng Quốc Phòng Nobuo Kishi, và đồng nhiệm phía Úc là Marise Payne và Peter Dutton.

    Đạo luật an ninh quốc gia, vốn gây tranh cãi, có hiệu lực từ năm 2016 cho phép Lực lượng Phòng vệ Nhật Bản bảo vệ các tàu Hải quân Mỹ. Từ khi bắt đầu được đưa ra Quốc Hội thảo luận, Úc đã được coi là ứng viên tương lai được bảo vệ, nếu có nhu cầu.

    Nhật Bản và Úc đã siết chặt hợp tác trong những năm gần đây, một phần nhằm đối phó với sự bành trướng của Trung Quốc trên biển Hoa Đông và Biển Đông. Quyết định mới đây cho thấy hai nước đã gần như là đồng minh. Một khi nhận được yêu cầu bảo vệ từ Úc, Hội đồng An ninh Quốc gia sẽ quyết định mà không nhất thiết phải báo cáo chi tiết với Quốc Hội Nhật Bản. Trong cuộc họp hôm qua, đôi bên cũng đồng ý gia tăng các cuộc thảo luận nhằm tạo điều kiện viếng thăm lẫn nhau trong các cuộc tập trận chung.

    Thông cáo chung Nhật-Úc lần đầu tiên nêu ra Trung Quốc là quốc gia đáng quan ngại do các hành động trên Biển Đông. Thông cáo nói rằng Nhật Bản và Úc « phản đối các yêu sách và hoạt động trên biển của Trung Quốc không phù hợp với Công ước Liên Hiệp Quốc về Luật Biển (UNCLOS) », đồng thời nhấn mạnh « tầm quan trọng của hòa bình và ổn định tại eo biển Đài Loan ».

    Theo luật an ninh sửa đổi, việc bảo vệ các chiến hạm và phi cơ Mỹ chủ yếu được tiến hành trong các cuộc tập trận chung, và trong năm 2020 đã có đến 25 cuộc – con số cao nhất từ trước đến nay.

    Indonesian officials give away live chickens to residents willing to get vaccinated


    Residents aged over 45 in Cianjur regency, West Java are gifted live chickens if they get vaccinated.

    (CNN)Live chickens are being given away by local authorities in rural Indonesia as an incentive for older residents to get vaccinated against Covid-19.
    The program, in Cianjur regency, West Java, is part of the district's effort to increase the number of vaccines administered to citizens age 45 and over.
    Galih Apria, assistant police commissioner in the sub-district of Pecat, said older residents had been very hesitant about getting the shots during the early rollout of the government's vaccination program.

    "Early on, there was a lot of misinformation and hoaxes about the vaccine circulating online, especially on social media," Galih said. "Lots of elderly people thought that it does not prevent Covid-19 but would cause serious diseases and even death."

    Police launched the free chicken program last month in collaboration with the sub-district government and local health centers.
    Before the program was initiated, only 25 in 200 residents were willing to get the vaccine, Galih said -- but "now, we have 250 people per day who are willing to get vaccinated."

    He added that giving out chickens was a sign of affection and respect toward the elderly, and it made older people more at ease with police officers, health officials, and with the vaccine itself.
    Hundreds of villagers from three villages in Pecat have gone to get the vaccine, according to CNN affiliate CNN Indonesia.
    Galih said authorities have given away 500 free chickens as a result of the program -- but they have also taken other steps to push for broader vaccination.
    "We had to explain and educate people on the safety and benefits of the vaccine so that they would stop being so scared," he said. "We go door-to-door and encourage people to get vaccinated."
    Medical staff and army personnel are helping police distribute the vaccine, and "do medical checkups so that people can get the vaccine on the spot," said Galih.
    Elis Sumiati, an elderly woman who received the vaccine through the program, told CNN Indonesia: "I didn't know if I even needed the vaccine, but now after they brought the chicken and said I can get the vaccine -- yes thank you, I'm happy."

    Indonesia has reported one of the largest coronavirus outbreaks in Asia, with nearly 2 million total cases and more than 53,000 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University.
    The archipelago has recently seen an uptick in infections, with its two most populous islands, Java and Sumatra, reporting a sharp rise in the weeks following the Ramadan holidays, according to Reuters.
    The immunization drive in Indonesia has also progressed slowly, with fewer than 20% of people over 50 targeted for inoculations having taken the first dose, according to data from the Health Ministry.

    However, Galih believes localized efforts in villages and towns can go a long way in helping the elderly get vaccinated.
    "The response to this program has been amazing," he said. "It is great to see our elders becoming happy after seeing the chickens and we are also able to protect them with the vaccine at the same time."

    Netherlands offers free herring as Covid jab incentive
    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/jun/17/netherlands-offers-free-pickled-herring-as-covid-jab-incentive

    Early batches of Hollandse nieuwe, or new-season Dutch herring, a traditional delicacy consumed to the tune of 75m a year, are being distributed to vaccination centres around the country as an encouragement for people to get their jabs.

    The first barrel of Hollandse nieuwe – young herring caught from mid-May when their fat content is considered just right, then gutted, soused and consumed raw either whole or on bread with chopped onion – is usually auctioned off for a good cause.

    This year, with an auction impossible, due to Covid restrictions, it was presented “on behalf of the Dutch people” to the head of the municipal health services organising the country’s vaccination campaign.

    More barrels have been sent to vaccination centres nationwide, where the fish – whose annual arrival on 15 June is celebrated with ceremonies and flag-waving – is being offered to staff and to everyone who shows up for their shot.


    As for recipients, she said: “A herring for a jab. Who could possibly resist?”
