Greek doctors protest 'suffocating' conditions at COVID-19 clinics

Greek hospital doctors went on a day-long strike on Tuesday and dozens marched in Athens to protest “suffocating” conditions at hospitals on the frontline of the coronavirus pandemic.

With around 6,000 deaths, Greece has fared better than much of Europe in containing the pandemic and prevented its health service, battered by years of financial crisis, from collapsing.

But intensive care units at state hospitals are operating at roughly 80% capacity and doctors want the government to create new units for COVID-19 patients instead of using already existing ones, as well as to hire more staff and to use resources from the private sector.

Firefox 86 was released late yesterday, should auto-update for most users. Most interesting new feature could be Total Cookie Protection. The new feature is enabled automatically when you enable the strict mode of Firefox's Enhanced Tracking Protection feature:

Click on the shield shield detected to the left of the address bar on any webpage.
   
Click on Protection Settings. The Firefox Preferences Privacy & Security panel will open.

Under Enhanced Tracking Protection, select Strict.
Select the Reload All Tabs button to apply your new privacy settings.

If something’s broken or not working when you use the Strict setting, you can use the toggle switch in the Shield panel to temporarily turn off protections on individual websites.

More info from Mozilla: Enhanced Tracking Protection in Firefox for desktop

Government to pass new legislation on animal rights

Seeking to provide a more comprehensive framework for the care of pets and strays, a new bill by the Interior Ministry envisions, among a vast array of actions, the creation of a national register of animals, the mass sterilization of a million stray animals and the creation of a special body to monitor the actions of local authorities.

It also provides for the establishment of a national hotline for complaints.

The bill, which will be presented to cabinet on Tuesday, seeks to uphold the five internationally recognized animal freedoms.
