- Over the past decade, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has become the World Health Organization’s second largest donor. They may now have moved up to take their place as the agency’s largest donor. Until just last week, when President Trump halted US funding to the WHO, the only donations higher than those from the Gates Foundation came from the US government. Money donated by countries to the WHO’s General and Fiduciary Funds totaled $1.06 billion in 2017. This was less than the contributions from non-state actors, which amounted to $1.08 billion. Along with the Gates Foundation, other prominent sources of funding included the Brussels EU Commission, which gave over $84 million; the ‘Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria’, an organization promoting the use of antiretroviral drugs and other pharmaceutical approaches, which contributed over $16 million; and UNITAID, another organization promoting the use of pharmaceuticals, which gave almost $30 million.
- President Trump shared a report that said indictments could be coming this week in U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review of the Russia investigation.

- Spain’s best-known bull running festival in the northern town of Pamplona has been cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic, Pamplona city hall said Tuesday.

- Three persons have been arrested on the charge of smuggling wood from a forest in Ramdhuni, Nepal. Acting on a tip-off, a team of Armed Police Force and forest officers arrested the trio red-handed while they were loading felled timbers of Sakhuwa species in the tractor inside the Ramdhuni Forest.

- Myanmar will free almost 25,000 prisoners in an amnesty to mark the traditional New Year, the president’s office said on Friday, its largest mass pardon in recent years.

The president gave no details of the crimes the prisoners were convicted of.
- Oil’s epic price collapse is giving Indian bonds the upper hand over Indonesian debt in a market where dollars are in short supply and developing nations compete for foreign money. For oil-importing India, the implosion in Brent crude oil prices this year will give Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government leeway to heal an economy hurt by virus lockdowns. That puts Indonesia at a disadvantage as the two Asian high-yield sovereign-bond issuers attract bargain hunters.
- Thailand has found the largest number of nests of rare leatherback sea turtles in two decades on beaches bereft of tourists because of the coronavirus pandemic, environmentalists say. The 11 turtle nests authorities have found since last November were the highest number in 20 years, said Kongkiat Kittiwatanawong, the director of the Phuket Marine Biological Center. “This is a very good sign for us because many areas for spawning have been destroyed by humans,” he told Reuters. No such nests had been found for the previous five years. Leatherbacks are the world’s largest sea turtles. They are considered endangered in Thailand and listed as a vulnerable species globally by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
