– France: Rise of anti-PAS mobilization
Proponents of her case have been working to make the actual transcript of this statement available online.
The mobilization comes after comments from French President Emmanuel Macron, who said he wanted to “biz off” those who had not been vaccinated this week.
– Djokovic asks if he can train
Novak Djokovic was banned from entering Australia for health reasons and on Saturday asked to leave the Melbourne Detention Center for training, believing he could be exempted from the vaccine after contracting the disease in December.
One week before the Australian Open, the World Tennis No. 1 is due to appeal in federal court on Monday.

“Four to five executive players” from Burkina Faso and coach Covit have tested positive for the disease and are expected to miss Sunday’s African Nations (CAN) opener in Yaunde, the assistant coach explained.
Senegal’s Kalido Goulibali also tested positive for Kovit-19, announcing his club from Naples (Italian Serie A). The player is “vaccinated and asymptomatic. He is now in solitary confinement, according to health protocol”, the club notes.

Dozens of Hong Kong dignitaries, including the police chief and finance minister, will be allowed to leave the isolation after one of the two Govt-19 cases found at a party they attended was declared false positive on Saturday.
– More than 5.4 million deaths
The epidemic has killed more than 5,478,486 people worldwide, according to the AFP report at 11:00 GMT on Saturday. The United States is next with Brazil (619,937), India (483,463) and Russia (315,400) with 8,37,262 deaths. Mexico crossed the 300,000 death mark on Friday.
However, taking into account the high number of deaths directly and indirectly associated with Govt-19, the World Health Organization estimates that the number of infections may be two to three times higher than officially recorded.
