Djokovic out, but vaccine debate stays in Australian Open

  Djokovic out, but vaccine debate stays in Australian Open MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — To some, it seemed a cloud had been lifted from the Australian Open. To others, Novak Djokovic still was almost palpably present, the name on everyone's lips on the opening day of the first major tennis tournament of the year. Djokovic left Australia late Sunday when he failed in his legal challenge to overturn the cancellation of his visa due to his lack of a COVID-19 vaccination. His flight from Melbourne was touching down in Dubai early Monday just as the first matches of the tournament began. As the No. 1-ranked male player and the three-time defending champion, Djokovic would have been the marquee attraction of the tournament.

For the first time, due to the 2G-Plus rule, an unvaccinated AFD Member could not attend a central meeting in the Bundestag. Now a special solution was found.

The Bundestag has imposed new 2G-Plus rules - with direct consequences for the AFD deputy Joachim Wundrak . The parliamentarian is not vaccinated against SARS COV-2 according to SARS COV-2. Now he will participate in the meetings of the Federal External Committee of Plexiglas, reports the message portal »T-Online«.

"I accept this compromise as a pragmatist, in the spirit of the thing to perceive my mandate," said Wundrak. From the first meeting of the Committee under 2G-Plus Conditions in mid-January, Wundrak had previously been excluded in the short term.

In the Bundestag, is retained only vaccinated and recent with daily negative test or booster vaccination access to the plenary hall and the regular seats in the committees. Who does not bend that, can pursue the parliamentary debates from the grandstand - several AFD deputies have been taking place there for weeks.

In the rooms of the Foreign Committee does not work, the boardroom has no grandstands. In addition, the committee meets secret. Therefore, here is a digital switching to MPs, which is customary in other bodies, not possible.

The Committee Chairman Michael Roth ( SPD ) defended the decision to exclude woundrak from the meeting. "We could not find a reasonable solution for the problem so quickly. I feel committed as chairman to protect the deputies, "he said" T-Online ". He has therefore suggested in the round of obesters of all factions that Woundrak could not participate. "With the procedure, all obemists agreed - except the chairman of the AfD."

Is Francois Legault bluffing on a tax for Quebec's unvaxxed?

  Is Francois Legault bluffing on a tax for Quebec's unvaxxed? OTTAWA – Will Quebec’s controversial tax for the unvaccinated become reality or is it just tough talk to get jabs into more people’s arms? Some analysts are already expressing skepticism about the measure that was announced last week by Quebec Premier François Legault. He said the province would be asking for a “significant” health contribution from Quebecers who have not yet gotten vaccinated against COVID-19, arguing that they pose a significant burden on the health system. No details have been released about the amount of the contribution or the way in which the government intends to enforce it. A bill will be presented next month in the National Assembly.

A permanent exclusion would not be covered by the constitution. Basically, all parliamentarians must be granted the work. The mobile solution found is currently the "only possible practical measure in a hall in which there is no empore," said Roth.

Soon, significantly more deputies could be affected by the 2G-Plus rule. Currently applies in the Bundestag - unlike in the rest of the country - still a genosis of six months. However, the Elders Council also wants to work with a shortening of 180 to 90 days . For many currently still gourmet then the status goes out.
