To prevent the spread of the new crown epidemic, the Greek government announced on the 17th that restaurants and bars in Mykonos are banned from playing music.
According to a report by the British “Daily Mail” on the 17th, Mykonos is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Greece, attracting more than 1 million tourists every summer, including Hollywood stars, models and famous athletes. . In recent weeks, villas on Mykonos have held many private gatherings, and the number of new confirmed cases on the island has tripled within a week, forcing the Greek government to take more stringent anti-epidemic measures.
According to the new anti-epidemic regulations, music is prohibited on the island at any time, whether in shops, restaurants, cafes or bars. In addition, people can only go out between 1 am and 6 am, but it must also be for work or medical needs. Greek health official Nicos Hadalias warned that organizers of private gatherings with more than 20 people would face fines of up to 200,000 euros (approximately 1.53 million yuan).
However, the Mayor of Mykonos, Kukas, stated that this was an “unfair decision” and needed “immediate revision”. Kukas believes that the newly confirmed cases in recent days are concentrated in young people, and most of them are foreign tourists, so these factors should be considered before formulating epidemic prevention measures.
With the help of high-tech companies, the African country of Malawi has built the world’s first 3D printed school.
According to a report from the US Newsweek on the 17th, this 3D printing school was built in the village of Mecheza in Salima County, Malawi. The local infrastructure is very backward. The nearest school to the village was also 5 kilometers away. Children’s education has always been a big problem. Not long ago, the French technology company 14Trees used 3D technology to build the first school for the village in just 15 hours, almost overnight. The newly completed school can accommodate dozens of students. Chicandilla, a senior adviser to the Ministry of Education in Malawi, praised that the new school is spacious and durable. Many students have never seen it before. Its completion is bound to attract many out-of-school children back to school.
It is understood that the current number of schools in Malawi is difficult to meet the needs of school-age children. UNICEF estimates that Malawi’s primary school alone needs to add another 36,000 classrooms. If traditional methods are used, it will take 70 years to complete the construction of these school buildings. 3D printing technology greatly reduces construction costs such as time and consumables. If it can be effectively promoted, the process is expected to be shortened to 10 years.
The German “Sunday Monde” reported on the 18th that the latest “Immigration and Refugee Consultation Report” released by the European Commission recently showed that in the first six months of this year, Germany still ranked first in the EU in terms of refugee asylum applications, ahead of France and Spain And Italy.
According to the report, from January to June this year, EU countries, Switzerland and Norway received a total of 195,000 asylum applications. Germany has received 47,231 refugee asylum applications. Among them, 36% of the applications were from Syrians, 18% were from Afghans, and 6.6% were from Iraqis. France followed closely with 32,212 applications, and Spain ranked third with 25,823 applications. In fourth place is Italy, which received 20,620 applications, less than half of Germany’s. The EU countries with the least number of applications are Latvia (58), Estonia (30) and Hungary (19). These countries have stricter refugee application policies.
Experts pointed out that due to the impact of the new crown epidemic, the number of people applying for asylum in Germany and other European countries is less than in previous years. However, as the epidemic is contained, refugees from the Middle East, North Africa, Afghanistan and other places are increasing.
