7:22 a.m .: Australia: Prime Minister Morrison should not attend the UN Climate Summit
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison will not personally attend the UN Climate Summit in Glasgow, Scotland. “We have not yet made a final decision,” Morrison told the Western Australian newspaper. The Twelve Day Conference in November is set to be the most important meeting since the 2015 Paris Climate Summit. It was accepted by top politicians from around the world, including US President Joe Biden. Australia has the highest per capita CO2 emissions and is one of the largest coal exporters in the world. The government has so far rejected the commitment to greenhouse neutrality by 2050. “I want to focus on things here and on Govt-19,” Morrison said.
05.54am: Corona locking in Sydney will be lifted for vaccinated citizens in mid-October
After a week-long lockout in Sydney, corona restrictions for vaccinated residents in metropolitan areas are set to be relaxed in mid-October. The head of government of the state of New South Wales, Gladys Periglian, announced on Monday that the “plan for independence” would come into effect once 70 percent of the population had been fully vaccinated with two vaccines. She is “very confident” that this goal will be reached on October 11th. In Sydney and New South Wales only in emergencies the eviction order will be revoked. Bars, restaurants and shops will be allowed to reopen for vaccinated guests. However, for people who have not been vaccinated, the restrictions will remain in place until early December. Until then, officials expect a 90 percent vaccination rate.

5:01 a.m .: Study: Corona reduces life expectancy similar to World War II
In the wake of the corona epidemic, life expectancy in many countries is much lower than it was in Western Europe after World War II, according to a study. In some countries, progress over the past few years has been short-lived, say researchers at Oxford University’s Liverhulm Center for Population Science in the “International Journal of Epidemiology”. So the decline of men was greater than that of women.
For the study, the scientists examined data from 29 countries, most of them from Europe, including Germany, Chile and the United States. By 2020, life expectancy will be lower in 27 of these countries and lower in 22 countries in at least half a year. “In Western European countries such as Spain, England and Wales, Italy and Belgium, the minimum life expectancy at birth was last seen during World War II,” said co-author Jose Manuel Aberto. Life expectancy for men is the lowest in the United States – 2.2 years compared to 2019.
1:54 a.m .: SPD health expert Carl Lauterbach continues on the bandwagon
SPD politician Carl Lauterbach receives direct mandate for Leverkusen-Cologne IV constituency and is thus in the bandwagon. A health expert across Germany due to a corona epidemic won 45.6 percent of the first vote in the federal election. The CDU candidate, North Rhine-Westphalia Coordinating Secretary of State Seraphim Cooler, came in at 20.4 percent. Lotterbach dropped down the list in the SPD, but remains in the bundle due to his direct order. Prior to the election, he had expressed interest in becoming the next Union Health Minister. Lotharbach sees the direct mandate to win the federal election again as “a vote for our Corona policy.”

After several corona cases in the vicinity of Brazilian President Jair Bolsanaro, the head of state himself tested negative for the corona virus. The government announced that Bolzano would begin his official duties on Monday.

With the exception of the president’s son, Health Minister Marcelo Giroka, MP Eduardo Bolzano was also affected. About 50 members of the Brazilian delegation were isolated as a precautionary measure after returning from New York.
