Finland to Ease lockdown Covid

Changes to restrictions imposed due to COVID-19 epidemic as of 1 June

The restrictions put in place to mitigate the COVID-19 epidemic are being phased out gradually and in a controlled manner starting on 1 June. The aim is to curb the epidemic while minimising the adverse impact on people, businesses, society and the exercise of fundamental rights. From the beginning of June, certain restrictions will be alleviated, including the restrictions on gatherings, the organisation of events and the opening of public spaces. At the same time, restaurants and cafes will also be reopened to customers with certain restrictions. In line with the Government’s decision, travel within Finland is allowed as long as health and safety guidelines relating to coronavirus are observed.

Changes to the restrictions on gatherings and public events

Public events with a maximum of 50 persons will be allowed as of 1 June. The restrictions apply to public events and public meetings organised indoors and outdoors.

Public meetings include demonstrations and other events that are open to all and that are organised to exercise the right of freedom of assembly. Public events include entertainment events, competitions, performances or other similar events that are open to the public. The Government recommends that people comply with guidelines on safe distances and hygiene at these events.

However, the meetings and events referred to in the legislation do not include, for instance, the use of public sports facilities or going to a shopping centre.

Moreover, the restrictions do not apply to private events, such as private parties or private meetings. The Government recommends, however, that people do not organise private events for more than 50 persons. In all these situations, people should remember to keep a distance of two metres from other participants and to observe good hand hygiene and cough hygiene.

Public events and public meetings of more than 50 and a maximum of 500 persons in indoor and enclosed outdoor spaces can be organised under special arrangements. The Regional State Administrative Agencies require that such meetings and events be organised in accordance with the guidelines on the prevention of coronavirus infections issued by the Ministry of Education and Culture and the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare on 14 May 2020 (available in Finnish and Swedish). Public events with more than 500 persons are prohibited until 31 July.

The regulations concerning restrictions on gatherings issued by the Regional State Administrative Agencies are of a general nature and do not specify individual events. Event organisers are responsible for arranging events in a way that does not exacerbate the epidemiological situation. Each event organiser or operator must assess how best to comply with the provisions on limiting the number of visitors, maintaining safe distances and observing hygiene guidelines.

Police will monitor compliance with restrictions on gatherings

The police will continue to monitor compliance with the restrictions on gatherings imposed by the Regional State Administrative Agencies in accordance with their powers. The task of the police is to ensure that public meetings and public events are organised in compliance with the maximum number of participants and the Assembly Act. The police will not monitor compliance with hygiene instructions; instead, the organisers themselves must take measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

The police will not intervene in other occasional gatherings and private events, unless they pose a threat to public order and security.

Public premises, such as libraries and swimming pools, are reopening  

Public premises that have been closed will reopen in a controlled manner starting in the beginning of June. These include national and municipal museums, theatres, the National Opera, cultural venues, libraries, mobile libraries, services for customers and researchers at the National Archives, hobby and leisure centres, swimming pools and other sports facilities, youth centres, clubs, organisations’ meeting rooms, rehabilitative work facilities and workshops, among others.

For example, concerts, theatre performances, film showings, festivals and cultural events are considered public events. These are subject to the decisions on restrictions made by the Regional State Administrative Agencies under the Communicable Diseases Act.

The continuous normal activities of libraries and museums, on the other hand, are not considered public events and are therefore not subject to the restrictions on gatherings. However, the restrictions on public events do apply to events organised by libraries and museums. At all events, the maximum limit of 50 attendees currently in force, or 500 attendees with special arrangements, must be observed.

Sports competitions and series may be resumed with special arrangements starting in the beginning of June, in accordance with the restrictions on the number of persons and other restrictions on public events and with the guidelines of the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare and the Ministry of Education and Culture.

The restrictions on public events do not apply to the normal, continuous activities of swimming pools and sports facilities. However, the operators of sports halls and sports facilities must assess how the guidelines from the authorities can best be applied to the local conditions in order to ensure the safety of customers and staff.

The guidelines issued by the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare and the Ministry of Education and Culture on 14 May 2020 recommend that camps for children and youth operate in restricted groups of up to 50 persons.

It is also important to take into account the general guidelines on hygiene and other arrangements to prevent the spread of the virus during activities not subject to the restrictions on gatherings.

The Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare and the Ministry of Education and Culture have issued guidelines on how to prevent coronavirus infections in connection with public events and gatherings and the use of public premises. The Finnish Heritage Agency has issued more detailed recommendations on museum activities, and the Regional State Administrative Agencies have issued recommendations on specific issues related to libraries.

Restaurants and cafes are reopening with certain restrictions

On 1 June, restaurants and cafes throughout the country will be reopened to customers with certain restrictions. The Act on Temporarily Amending the Communicable Diseases Act will enter into force at the same time and be applicable between 1 June 2020 and 31 October 2020. The President of the Republic confirmed the Act and the Government issued a related Decree on Friday 29 May

Businesses serving food or beverages can be open between 6.00 and 23.00. The serving of alcoholic beverages is permitted only between 9.00 and 22.00. The maximum number of customers inside restaurants is limited to half of normal number.

The Government must regularly assess whether the restrictions laid down in the act and the decree remain necessary in different areas of the country to prevent the spread of the communicable disease.

Businesses serving food or beverages must step up their level of hygiene and ensure adequate distances between customers. Every customer must have their own seat at a table or counter. Customers can pick up their purchases themselves at the counter, for example. However, they are not allowed to serve or dish out their own food or drinks, for example at a buffet table.

Travel within Finland allowed as long as health and safety guidelines are observed

Travel within Finland is allowed as long as health and safety guidelines relating to coronavirus are observed. It is important for tourists and tourism sector operators to be committed to complying with the measures in place to prevent COVID-19 infections. The Government decided on the matter in its written procedure on Friday 29 May.

The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment and the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health have drawn up guidelines for the safe reopening of domestic tourism in Finland. The guidelines will enter into force on 29 May 2020. Tourism companies and tourists are responsible for adhering to the guidelines and for applying them to their activities.

Afghan Govt Releases Prisoners

AFGHANISTAN By Tamim Hamid 

Afghan Govt Releases Prisoners Based on Taliban’s List: ONSC

The release of the Taliban prisoners was conducted based on a list given by the technical team of the Taliban to the Afghan government, said Jawed Faisal, a spokesman for the Office of National Security Council (ONSC).

“Taliban prisoners were released based on the list provided by the technical team of the Taliban to the technical team of the Afghan government,” said Faisal.

This comes amid skepticism about the identity of the prisoners. Previously, the Taliban criticized the Afghan government for the lack of transparency of the process and the identity of the inmates.

The Afghan government on Friday released 164 members of Hizb-e-Islami from Bagram and Pul-e-Charkhi jails, said members of the commission implementing the peace deal between the group and the Afghan government.

However, some of those released from the jails claimed to be members of the Taliban.

Mohammad Afzal is one of the those released today. He served in the Afghan National Army (ANA) for eight years and later was arrested at Kabul airport for ties with the Taliban.

“I was given 20 years in prison. I spent 11 years of it before I was granted freedom for the remaining 9 years under the (Hekmatyar–government agreement) process, and I came out,” said Mohammad Afzal, a resident of Nangarhar.

“As I said, criminals were also among those released. Neither the Taliban nor the Afghan people will be happy about it. They should try to study the issue thoroughly to make sure that those released from the jails are those asked for by the Taliban,” said Sayed Ishaq Gailani, the head of Nahzat-e-Hambastagi Milli Afghanistan party.

Meanwhile, Abdullah Abdullah, head of the High Council for National Reconciliation, said that the release of Taliban prisoners has reached a significant stage.

“The prisoner swap has been carried out to a significant stage, these things have created favorable conditions,” said Abdullah.

Under the US-Taliban peace agreement, 5,000 Taliban prisoners will be released from the Afghan government’s jails.

So far the government has released 2,000 of the inmates.

The Taliban also released 420 Afghan security force prisoners out of the 1,000 called for in the US-Taliban deal. 

The Taliban’s spokesman Suhail Shaheen on Saturday tweeted that the Taliban released 73 members of the Afghan security forces in Balkh, Kunduz, Logar, Paktia, Khost and Paktika.

He said that so far the Taliban has released 420 government prisoners.

Punjab, 30 June Lockdown

 Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has extended the lockdown till June 30 in the state, with more relaxations. About opening of the hospitality industry and malls, the Chief Minister said, though experts have advised against it, the state would take into account the central government guidelines for Lockdown 5.0. He made it clear that the extension of the lockdown would be conditional to strict adherence to Covid safety protocols, including physical distancing and wearing of masks.
 
Chief Minister has also ordered distribution of free masks to the poor. He directed Food & Civil Supplies Minister Bharat Bhushan Ashu to ensure immediate steps for the same. Captain Amarinder said that the threat of Covid is not yet over, and if necessary, he will continue to take tough measures to save the lives of people.
 
He said non-reporting to health authorities by those returning to the state, especially from abroad, is a big challenge, as it complicated their contact tracing and endangered the lives of others. He revealed that 9,560 of such people have been traced and tested, and some positive cases have been found among these. He appealed to people to report any instance of returnees jumping medical checking by the state government.

SpaceX blast off

SpaceX rocket blasts off on private crewed flight to ISS.NASA and SpaceX launch astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley to the International Space Station. This mission marks the first time since the retirement of the space shuttle in 2011 that humans will fly to the space station from the U.S. soil.


A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying two veteran NASA astronauts lifted off for the International Space Station on Saturday, the first crewed space flight from US soil in nine years and the first ever by a commercial company.

The two-stage rocket with astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley aboard blasted off smoothly in a cloud of orange flames and smoke from Launch Pad 39A at Florida´s Kennedy Space Center for a historic flight to the orbiting ISS.

“Let´s light this candle,” Hurley said, right before liftoff.

The reusable first booster stage of the SpaceX rocket separated cleanly about two and a half minutes after liftoff and landed upright on a floating barge off the Atlantic coast.

The second stage also separated smoothly, sending the astronauts in the Crew Dragon capsule on their way to the space station.

SpaceX said Crew Dragon was on the correct trajectory to link up with the space station orbiting some 250 miles (450 kilometers) above the Earth.

The launch had originally been scheduled for Wednesday but was delayed because of weather conditions, which also remained uncertain on Saturday right up until liftoff at 3:22 pm (1922 GMT).

Corna 6 Million

India’s coronavirus tally to nearly 1.82 lakh cases, the Union Health Ministry said this morning single day spike 8380 counts.The number of total deaths linked to the highly infectious illness crossed the 5,000-mark after 193 patients died in 24 hours, according to official data. The country -ninth worst hit due to the pandemic has been registering record spikes for the last three days. The sharp rise in cases comes as India prepares to re-open in a phased-manner after nearly two months of lockdown to tackle the pandemic.

Worldwide coronavirus cases pass six million.

The pandemic has claimed more than 367,000 lives worldwide.

Inspite the continued increase in cases, many countries are opening schools and workplaces following weeks of unprecedented lockdowns that have stemmed the spread of the disease — but also hammered economies and thrown millions out of work.

Britain is at a very dangerous moment as it starts to ease some of its lockdown measures, England’s deputy chief medical officer said on Saturday, warning that people would need to follow the guidelines and not “tear the pants out of it”.

Jonathan Van-Tam told the daily briefing that people have got to be “sensible and proportionate with the freedom that we absolutely want to give to people because we need to see loved ones”.

He said the public needed “to actually follow the guidance, don’t tear the pants out of it, and don’t go further than the guidance actually says”.

On 29 May Coronavirus, worldwide. Cases: 5,930,000 Deaths: 362,000 Recoveries: 2,600,000

Coronavirus India lockdown Day 68. India registers highest single-day spike of 8,380 COVID-19 cases.

#DelhiMetro services will remain closed for commuters until further notice. Home Ministry has extended nationwide lockdown in containment zones till 30th June and prohibited operation of Metro Rail.

As Lockdown 4.0 comes to an end, the Ministry of Home Affairs has released a new set of guidelines called ‘Unlock 1.0’.

Malls, restaurants, religious places are among those that will be allowed to function in all areas except containment zones from June 8, according to guidelines issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs.

Brazil on Saturday reached 28,834 coronavirus fatalities, authorities said, surpassing hard-hit France and becoming the country with the world’s fourth-highest death toll.

At the epicenter of South America’s coronavirus outbreak, Brazil also saw an increase of 33,274 cases in the past 24 hours — a new daily record, the Health Ministry said.

That number brings Brazil’s total caseload to 498,444, the second-highest in the world, lagging only behind the United States.

Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro remain the hardest-hit states in Brazil in terms of sheer numbers, while per capita rates are higher in the country’s impoverished north and northeast, where health facilities are reaching capacity.

Brazil’s Ministry of Health has indicated “there is no way to foresee” when the country’s outbreak will peak, and experts say the number of cases could be 15 times higher than the confirmed figure because there has been no widespread testing.

The pandemic is spreading across Brazil under a cloud of confrontation, as governors and mayors implement restrictive measures while President Jair Bolsonaro, who has pinned his hopes of re-election on a booming economy, has berated them for imposing what he calls “the tyranny of total quarantine.”

The US death toll now stands at 103,685. The United Kingdom, meanwhile, has a toll of 38,376 and Italy stands at 33,340, according to a latest count by AFP.

George Floyd death, riot to end

President Donald Trump on Saturday warned that his government would stop violent protests over police brutality “cold,” blaming the extreme left as thousands began to appear on the streets of major US cities and threatened another night of unrest.

“We cannot and must not allow a small group of criminals and vandals to wreck our cities and lay waste to our communities,” Trump said following another night of widespread looting and arson in Minneapolis.

“My administration will stop mob violence. And we’ll stop it cold,” Trump said.

The US leader said the rioters were dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, the African American who died on Monday after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes and who has become a fresh symbol of police brutality against blacks.

“The violence and vandalism is being led by Antifa and other radical left-wing groups,” Trump said, referring to the loose-knit militant anti-fascist network.

Protesters gather again in Minneapolis, New York, Chicago, Miami, Philadelphia and other cities, with authorities preparing for another night of violent protests over what African American leaders called “systemic” mistreatment by law enforcement.

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz called up more national guard troops Saturday and warned they would “decimate” rioters after Friday night’s violence in the northern state overwhelmed law enforcement.

Protests against police brutality spread across America, leading to one of the country´s worst nights of civil unrest in years with police cars and other property set alight and destroyed in New York, Dallas, Atlanta, Los Angeles and other cities.

Protestors shouted and chanted for hours outside the White House in Washington on Friday, as Trump sat inside facing the most serious spate of civil unrest of his presidency, in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic.

G7- India Russia S Korea Australia

US President Trump calls for expansion of G7; Seeks inclusion of India, Russia, Australia & South Korea

PTIUS President Donald Trump has said that he will postpone a meeting of Group of 7 nations until fall and called for an expansion of the group’s membership. Mr Trump told reporters that that he has not yet set a new date, but it can take place in September around the time of the annual meeting of the United Nations.

The leaders of the world’s major economies were slated to meet in June in the US. Mr Trump said he considers the G7 an outdated group that doesn’t properly represent what’s taking place in the world. The US President singled out India, Russia, Australia and South Korea as possible additions.  The G7 members are US, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and UK.
