New rules for holidays in Spain and Greece but Brits are not included
The European Union is setting out how people will be able to visit countries including France, Portugal and Italy

The European Union’s executive body has proposed the introduction of coronavirus passes to let its 450 million residents travel freely across the 27-nation bloc by the summer.

The plan, which will be discussed next week during a summit of EU leaders, foresees the creation of vaccine certificates aimed at facilitating travel from one member state to the other.

The topic has been discussed for weeks and has been a divisive topic. The travel industry and southern European countries dependent on tourism, like Greece and Spain, have been pushing for the quick introduction of the measure, which could help avoid quarantine and testing requirements.

But several member states, including France, argued that it would be premature and discriminatory to introduce such passes because a large majority of EU citizens have not had access to vaccines so far.

Staff at Argostoli Hospital on strike between 09:00-12:00 this Friday, 19 March. Not sure if it's all staff, sounds as though it's auxiliary staff rather than medical.

Welsh goat population rockets after Covid cancels contraception drive
Goats of Great Orme venturing even further into town, sparking fears for their safety as lockdown eased

The goats of the Great Orme headland in Wales were a worldwide sensation during the first Covid lockdown last year after they were pictured roaming brazenly around the deserted streets of nearby Llandudno.

This year there has been a population explosion of the kashmiri goats in their north Wales headland home after the Covid crisis forced countryside wardens to cancel a planned contraception campaign.

And during the latest lockdown the goats have roamed even further from the Great Orme, sparking concerns that as restrictions ease, some of the animals who are used to having the streets pretty much to themselves may be in danger as vehicle traffic builds.
