Vatican launches investigation after Pope’s Instagram account likes revealing photo of Brazilian model

The Vatican has launched an investigation into how the Pope’s Instagram account came to “like” a picture of a scantily clad Brazilian model.

“At least I’m going to heaven,” said Natalia Garibotto, after the apparent blessing from Pope Francis’s account of an image of her wearing school uniform-inspired stockings and suspenders was noticed nearly six weeks after she posted it.

December 1 reopening target ‘no longer looks realistic,’ says spokesman

The Greek government is expected next week to decide on extending the current lockdown as rising coronavirus infections make the original December 1 target for easing restrictions increasingly elusive.

“December 1 no longer looks like a realistic target,” government spokesman Stelios Petsas told state broadcaster ERT on Friday morning, a day before Greece wrapped up its second week in a nationwide lockdown that includes restrictions on public movement and economic activity.

Health system teetering on the edge

With hospitals in the northern and central cities of Thessaloniki and Larissa almost bursting at the seams, Greece’s health system is struggling to cope with unprecedented pressure brought on by a relentless second wave of the pandemic.

Ominously, occupancy levels at intensive care units are fast approaching 100%, with only seven beds vacant Thursday morning. What’s more, any Covid ICU bed vacated Thursday was almost immediately occupied by another patient.

Do not open this e-mail, the Hellenic Post services warns customers

The Hellenic Post services (ELTA) has cautioned citizens to avoid opening an e-mail received by many online users bearing its logo, as it is a phishing scam.

The online scammers emphasise that if the package is not received within 30 days then they will have to be compensated € 0.49.

ELTA has asked citizens to delete the e-mail immediately.
