- Germany has closed its border to visitors from Europe due to coronavirus, but migrants claiming asylum from the Middle East and Africa are still allowed to enter the country. However, according to the German Ministry of the Interior, so-called “asylum seekers,” a catch-all term that basically describes economic migrants fleeing from the Middle East and Africa, are still welcome.The situation is similar in Sweden, where asylum seekers will continue to be processed and allowed to stay in the country despite a global pandemic.
- Sweden – Social Democrat MEP Marita Ulvskog has found herself on the receiving end of online jokes after sharing a tweet from a spoof account mocking US President Donald Trump at its face value. In the post shared by Ulvskog, from an account which is marked as a parody beyond any doubt, “slammed” research of possible coronavirus cure in French, arguing that “nobody speaks it” and wondering “why can’t they write it in English”. “A message from the world’s most powerful politician”, Ulvskog wrote, signalling her readiness to criticize Trump, who remains uniquely unpopular in Sweden, having repeatedly polled as Sweden’s least favorite politician.
- During the Cold War the CIA was obsessed with keeping communism out of Latin America. In the 1970s and 1980s the agency backed right-wing regimes in Guatemala which carried out genocidal attacks in indigenous groups which supported left-wing rebels. Three retired officers in the Guatemalan army are awaiting trial accused of carrying out genocide against the Maya Ixil people almost 40 years ago. General Benedicto Lucas García, General Manuel Callejas y Callejas and Colonel César Octavio Noguera Argueta were high up in the CIA-backed Guatemalan regime when it clamped down on leftist rebels and civilian sympathizers in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
- The governor of Tokyo warned that the metropolis might be forced into a “lockdown” if there is an explosive surge in new coronavirus cases. Yuriko Koike stressed March 23 that the coming three weeks would be a critical test of whether infections can be contained. Her remarks came as health authorities announced that a total of 154 people in Tokyo have been confirmed infected to date. Koike, addressing an emergency meeting on the health scare, also called on organizers to continue to refrain from holding large events until April 12. “We are asking for your cooperation to save people’s lives by averting ‘overshoot,’” Koike said, referring to an explosive growth in coronavirus patients.

- The Walt Disney Company said Tuesday that it had rolled out its Disney+ streaming service in seven European countries, but had reduced bandwidth, and hence output quality, because of the heavy demand on network infrastructure during the coronavirus crisis. After its US launch last November, Disney is now streaming in Austria, Britain, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Spain and Switzerland. France was supposed to be among the first European countries, but Disney said over the weekend that it had pushed back the launch to April 7 “at the request of the French government”.
- 64 migrants from Ethiopia were found dead on Tuesday, crammed inside a freight container in the northwestern Mozambican province of Tete, a senior hospital official said. The victims were discovered in a blue cargo container loaded on a truck. They were surrounded by survivors. Temperatures in Tete currently hover around 34 °C (93 °F). “A truck transporting illegal immigrants from Malawi, suspected to be Ethiopians, was stopped at the Mussacana weight bridge in Tete, and 64 people were found dead. Only 14 survived.”
- Greta Thunberg says she may have contracted coronavirus and has self-isolated at home with her father. The teenage climate activist said she appeared to have been infected along with her dad, actor Svante Thunberg. Both began having symptoms after a recent train tour of Europe together and so have been in isolation for the last weeks, she said.
- As the number of coronavirus patients in Iran soared to nearly 25,000, an outspoken lawmaker has harshly criticized President Hassan Rouhani for preventing restrictive measures to counter the outbreak, accusing him of suffering from delusion about conspiracies. Reiterating his opposition to even a partial lockdown, Rouhani had said on Sunday that it was “a counter-revolutionary conspiracy to shut down offices and do harm to the country’s economy.” According to an exclusive report, data gathered by Radio Farda from various national and local media in Iran quoting local authorities and Health Ministry officials indicate that the coronavirus has infected 55,344 Iranians and has claimed 2,703 lives as of Tuesday morning.
- Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro was forced on Monday to walk back a decree letting companies suspend pay to workers amid the coronavirus pandemic, following barbs from congressional leaders and rising discontent over his handling of the crisis. While Bolsonaro has played down the gravity of the outbreak, which he called a “fantasy” two weeks ago, state governments and federal lawmakers are calling for aggressive measures to slow contagion and support the economy.
- More than 50 Android apps on the Google Play Store—most of which were designed for kids and had racked up almost 1 million downloads between them—have been caught using a new trick to secretly click on ads without the knowledge of smartphone users. Dubbed “Tekya,” the malware in the apps imitated users’ actions to click ads from advertising networks such as Google’s AdMob, AppLovin’, Facebook, and Unity. “Twenty four of the infected apps were aimed at children (ranging from puzzles to racing games), with the rest being utility apps (such as cooking apps, calculators, downloaders, translators, and so on),” Check Point Research said.

- Global airlines urged governments on Tuesday Mar 24 to speed up bailouts to rescue the air transport industry as they doubled their estimate of 2020 revenue losses from the coronavirus crisis to more than US$250 billion. “We clearly need massive action very quickly and urgently,” Alexandre de Juniac, director general of the International Air Transport Association (IATA), told reporters. With planes unable to fly because of travel restrictions, compounded by a plunge in demand over fears of contagion, airlines worldwide have grounded most of their fleets, and many have said they need government support to survive. The industry is now contemplating months without flying. Ryanair, Europe’s biggest airline by passenger numbers, said on Tuesday it did not expect to operate flights in April or May. Many will not survive such a hammer blow to their finances. IATA said that without government support, up to half of airlines face possible bankruptcy in the coming weeks.

Ball python are one of the most misunderstood creatures on the planet and considered Africa’s most legally traded live animal. A new ground-breaking report by World Animal Protection is sounding the alarm over the international trade of this reptile, calling for a stop on the global wildlife trade, which is a ticking time bomb for infectious and deadly diseases. Wild animals, poached from their natural habitat or bred in captivity, are typically placed in cramped cages under dirty conditions, creating a lethal hotbed of disease.

The Size Of Comet Atlas
The Size Of Comet Atlas: No one knows how big the icy core of Comet ATLAS (C/2019 Y4) might be, possibly no wider than a few kilometers. One thing’s for sure, though, the comet’s atmosphere is huge. New images from amateur astronomers around the world show that ATLAS’s gaseous envelope has ballooned in diameter to ~720,000 km, about half as wide as the sun. 15 arcminutes = a quarter of a degree. Given Comet ATLAS’s distance of 1.1 AU on March 18th, that angle corresponds to a physical size of 720,000 km.
On the scale of big things in the solar system, Comet ATLAS falls somewhere between the sun (1,392,000 km diameter) and Jupiter (139,820 km). It’s not unusual for comets to grow so large. While their icy solid cores are typically mere kilometers in diameter, they can spew prodigious amounts of gas and dust into space, filling enormous volumes. In the fall of 2007, Comet 17P/Holmes partially exploded and, for a while, had an atmosphere even larger than the sun. The Great Comet of 1811 also had a sun-sized coma. Whether Comet ATLAS will eventually rival those behemoths of the past remains to be seen.
