How Japan's vaccine resistance is affecting its Covid-19 vaccine rollout


But the country only started inoculating its population of 126 million people with Pfizer-BioNTech shots last week, more than two months after the vaccine rolled out in other major countries, including the United States and United Kingdom.
The US has administered more than 68 million doses since its vaccination program started in December, according to Johns Hopkins University.

In Japan, only about 18,000 doses have been administered, according to the Japanese government.

Japan’s caseload isn’t as high as the US or UK, but in recent months its health system has been overwhelmed by the worst wave of infections since the pandemic started last year, with hundreds of new cases still being reported each day. And Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga is under pressure to reduce infections before Japan welcomes the world for the Summer Olympics.

Like the US, Japan is using the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine as part of its program. Yet Japanese regulators took two more months to approve its use.

The government says it has been deliberately cautious. After a series of vaccine scandals stretching back 50 years, Japan has one of the lowest rates of vaccine confidence in the world — so winning over a skeptical public is crucial.

However, the decision to move slowly has been criticized by some medical professionals, including Dr. Kenji Shibuya, a professor at King’s College in London, who says Japan’s delayed rollout and its lack of vaccination strategy will ultimately cost lives.

Medical workers wait for consultations after receiving a dose of the Covid-19 vaccine in Tokyo on February 17, 2021.

Cautious approval process

Pfizer-BioNTech conducted extensive Phase 3 clinical trials of their vaccine over several months late last year at about 150 clinical trial sites in the US, Germany, Turkey, South Africa, Brazil and Argentina.
On November 19, the companies announced the vaccine showed 95% efficacy in preventing Covid-19 infections. Two weeks later, the UK became the first Western country to approve the vaccine for emergency use, followed by the US on December 11.
On December 31, the World Health Organization (WHO) also approved the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for emergency use.

Japan’s approval came six weeks later, on February 14, after a smaller in-country test of 160 participants showed results consistent with the international trials. By Japanese standards that approval came quickly — normally the process can take anywhere from one to two years. But critics say the delay cost the government valuable time.

“With a sample size of 160 people, it doesn’t give you any scientific evidence on the effectiveness or safety (of a vaccine),” said Shibuya, from King’s College.

Taro Kono, the minister in charge of Japan’s coronavirus vaccine rollout, said the country’s clinical trial was conducted to build public trust in the program.

“I think it is more important for the Japanese government to show the Japanese people that we have done everything possible to prove the efficacy and the safety of the vaccine — to encourage the Japanese people to take the vaccine,” Kono said. “At the end of the day, we might have started slower, but we thought it would be more effective.”

Scandal and skepticism

According to a study published in medical journal The Lancet that mapped vaccine confidence in 149 countries between 2015 and 2019, fewer than 30% of people in Japan strongly agreed vaccines were safe, important and effective — compared to 50% in the US.

Japan’s vaccine resistance dates back to the 1970s when two infants died within 24 hours after receiving the combined diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (whooping cough) vaccination. The vaccine was temporarily suspended but confidence had already been rattled. For several years, infant vaccination rates fell, leading to a rise in cases of whooping cough.

In the late 1980s, there was another scare with the introduction of a Japanese-produced measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine. Early versions of the vaccine were linked to aseptic meningitis, or swelling of the membranes around the brain and spinal cord. The problem was traced back to the mumps component of the MMR vaccine, which led to court action and a hefty damages payout.

The National Institute of Health Science discontinued the combined shot in 1993 and replaced it with individual vaccines.

After the MMR scandal, Shibuya says the Japanese government became “risk aware” and its national vaccination program became voluntary.

Dr. Yuho Horikoshi, an expert in infectious diseases, says the lawsuits led to a “vaccination gap,” where no vaccines were approved in Japan for about 15 years.

42 people including students abducted last week in Nigeria released



The released group included 27 students, teachers and family members, the state government said in a statement at the time of the kidnapping.

The gunmen, wearing military fatigues according to witnesses, stormed the Government Science Secondary School Kagara on February 17. A student who died during the attack was named as Benjamin Habila.

The executive governor of Niger State, Abubakar Sani Bello, tweeted that those released have been received by the state government.

This comes as hundreds of schoolgirls were abducted in the early hours of Friday when armed men raided a state-run school in Zamfara State, northwest Nigeria.

The schoolgirls were taken from their hostels by gunmen who raided the Government Girls Secondary School in the town of Jangebe, a high-ranking government official with knowledge of the incident told CNN.

In December, at least 300 schoolboys were kidnapped by bandits in Katsina, Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari’s home state. The students have since been released.
These incidents have raised questions about the safety of schools in parts of northern Nigeria.

$1 homes in Italy are leaving families angry and frustrated


(CNN) — Dozens of towns in Italy have been selling abandoned dwellings for a song, sparking a new kind of gold rush as enthusiastic buyers from all over the world try to secure a bargain in beautiful, remote villages.

The deal is seen as a win-win, with dying communities getting an influx of new life and investment as dilapidated properties spring back to life and, more importantly, start contributing revenue.

But there could still be losers.

Now families of the original owners of some of the abandoned homes are starting to come forward to stake their claim on these old stone structures, saying that they should’ve been contacted to be made aware of the sales.

Among those now disputing the potential sell-off of their family home is Josie Faccini of Niagara Falls, Canada.

Faccini’s grandmother, Consilia Scapillati, migrated to Canada in the 1950s, leaving behind a cute little stone house in the historical center of Castropignano in Italy’s southern Molise region that the family has visited regularly over intervening years.

After reading about Castropignano’s plan to offload its old housing stock, Faccini began worrying about a “property grab” and has spent months trying, from afar, to reassert her claim to the home her nonna left decades ago.

And she’s not the only one. Despite efforts by local authorities to contact the families of the original owners, others say they’ve also fear losing their ancestral homes as they struggle to assert their claim because of distance, time and legal complications.

‘Angry and frustrated’

“I’d heard of the plans of selling and reached out in August,” Faccini tells CNN Travel. “Then I saw the article saying the mayor had sent notifications abroad but no one in my family was notified of this.”

Faccini says she’s sent multiple emails and a registered letter to Nicola Scapillati, the mayor of Castropignano, who shares the same surname as her grandmother, but has received no reply.

“Nothing,” she says. “I am so angry and frustrated. I would like to see the town flourish and help be a part of this, but please do not steal our home from us.”

Faccini says she finally got a reply from the mayor after an agonizing eight month wait, but says Scapillati told her she needed to provide a deed of ownership and information to verify her claim.

This could prove tricky. Asked by CNN to comment on Faccini’s claim, Scapillati points out that over the years, the home could have passed to new owners outside the family or to other heirs or distant relatives. Faccini has cousins back in Italy who she has never met.

It’s also not unknown for sales or transfer of ownership to be made informally in Italy, especially in rural locations, to avoid taxes, Scapillati says.

Castropignano is doing things differently compared with other places selling €1 homes. The town has roughly 100 abandoned buildings, but the mayor says he wants to match interested parties with the right house for them.

He says he’s moving along two parallel paths, reaching out both to potential buyers and old owners at the same time, step by step, to ensure demand meets supply.

Once interested buyers get in touch with a detailed plan of what kind of house they’d like and why, the mayor says he attempts to reach the original owners based on the land registry data.

Fines and seizures

After receiving thousands of emails from interested buyers, Scapillati says he identified a first tranche of houses and sent out roughly 20 letters to original owners scattered across the world.

The mayor tells CNN he’ll seize the properties and sell them to new buyers if the original owners don’t reply within a reasonable timeframe detailing their intentions to restore the building or hand it over to authorities.

He says the properties are dangerous and dilapidated.

Legally, he’s on reasonably solid ground, according to one expert. Anyone owning property in Italy must maintain its upkeep so that its condition won’t cause harm to anyone. Failure to do so can result in fines and seizure, albeit in extreme circumstances.

“Under Italian law, the owner or heir has the obligation to guarantee at any time the due maintenance of the asset in order to prevent any damage to third parties,” says Emiliano Russo, property lawyer and adjunct professor in real estate at Rome’s Luiss Business School.

“In case of risk of damages, he may be subject to administrative sanctions from €154 up to €929 ($186 to $1,122) and, in case of real damages, he may be subject to the criminal sanction of the arrest.”

Since these rules are meant to guarantee public safety, mayors can issue an injunction requiring owners to carry out repairs, Russo says.

He adds local authorities can pursue owners or their heirs through courts or using their own powers to recover the cost of maintenance or even seize the property.

Castropignano’s mayor says he has sent notices about the project to Italian diplomatic missions abroad. Josie Faccini says neither she nor anyone in her family has seen received any information published by the embassy in Canada.

The two sides are now trading arguments over what constitutes proper notification.

“I have searched the Italian embassy in Canada but found no notifications,” she says. “Most people from Castropignano migrated to Canada, we even have a club here, the Niagara Club Castropignano, which was started by the hundreds of immigrants that live here.”

Confusion and Covid

Faccini says she wants to know what needs to be done to recover the house and is willing to pay all back taxes and renovation expenses. She says she’s sent her nonna’s full name to the town hall and mayor and says she has now identified the property address with the help of relatives in Italy.

Faccini believes taking over a property, even if abandoned, without properly notifying the family members on the steps to reclaim it and letting another family have it, is unacceptable.

“Up until 10 years ago, I used to stay in my nonna’s house in Castropignano, located up a hilly road after the archway at the entrance of the town,” says Faccini.

“One of my aunts in Italy used the house for a while, then she died but I have no idea what happened to the house, to who it belongs to now.

“It has been abandoned for five years. I would have personally flown over already to enquire but Covid made it impossible”

Scapillati adds that the heirs of two other emigre families in Canada and Argentina have also been in touch to find out about the fate of their ancestors’ home.

“They weren’t claiming anything, just asking information regarding a family property in Castropignano which they remembered owning decades ago but didn’t know the exact location,” he says.

“One key element is emerging — the chance that across time emigres abroad sold their house privately to other owners without notifying the local authorities. Therefore we have no concrete data, just unpaid taxes piling up which nobody will ever pay.”

Other €1 bonanza towns have faced similar problems.

Crumbling burdens

Mussolemi

Mussomeli in Sicily has also received queries from people wanting to claim back their family homes.

The Sicilian town of Mussomeli set up an agency to liaise between old and new buyers and has so far successfully sold hundreds of cheap homes, according to Deputy Mayor Toti Nigrelli.

He says at least one family from Argentina, where many locals migrated to in past decades, got in touch enquiring about and claiming a potential old family home.

“We have a large community of people living in South America descending from Mussomeli natives whose interest in their roots sparked when news spread abroad of our alluring housing scheme,” says Nigrelli.

“A few of them remembered owning a house here and have asked what to do to claim back their ancestors’ dwelling.”

There have also been communication from home owners keen to offload their crumbling family properties to relieve themselves of the burden.

“We were so happy to dispose of our aunt’s house we just gifted it right over to the town authorities,” says Antonietta Lipani, an Italian-Swiss resident of Geneva whose family migrated from Mussomeli.

“My dad inherited it but we never go, it’s been empty for years. What’s the point of keeping it?”

A few towns, such as Carrega Ligure in Piedmont and Lecce nei Marsi in Abruzzo, have tried but failed to launch €1 schemes with old owners proving too elusive, perhaps fearing contact with local authorities seeking back taxes of roughly €400 a year, says Scapillati.

Bickering relatives can also be an obstacle. In Italy each single living heir has a share of the property and to sell, all must agree and sign off, otherwise the abandoned property remains frozen, even if it’s crumbling to the ground, according to Michele Giannini, the mayor of Fabbriche di Vergemoli, another town selling off houses.

However in nearly all towns that have successfully sold €1 properties to new owners the descendants of emigres have been in touch to recover lost ties and rediscover their roots.

Memory of mom

The mayors of Bivona and Troina in deep Sicily have received dozens of purchase requests from people whose ancestors migrated to France, Argentina and the United States, all looking for an empty house in the picturesque village of their ancestors.

“This project has awakened second and third generations of migrants abroad, sparking renewed interest for our community. In the past, many families fled in search of a better future. Now, their sons and grandsons want to return to their native town to relive the rural vibe”, says Bivona Mayor Milko Cinà.

Back in Castropignano, Mayor Scapillati says he’s happy to cooperate with Faccini to solve her problem if details can be verified. He doesn’t think it has been sold.

“We’re not grabbing any property, we don’t want to take any house away from any family, quite the contrary,” he says. “We’re thrilled that our project has created enthusiasm and thrown Castropignano in the spotlight, drawing people eager to join forces in recovering our lovely community.”

Faccini says if she can establish her claim over her family’s old house, she wants to move back to Castropiagno and would willingly help promote the town.

“It’s the only thing I have left of my mom, I’d like to keep it,” she says. “I want to go and live in the house, show it to my nephews and nieces who have never seen it. I’d like to work together with the mayor to help Castropignano flourish again.

“I’d be the greatest advocate for people wanting to buy a house there.”

A huge iceberg that's bigger than New York City broke off near a UK base in Antarctica


The BAS’s Halley Research Station, located on the Brunt Ice Shelf, is closed for the Antarctic winter and its 12-person staff left earlier this month.

Scientists have been expecting a large iceberg to break away for years because of vast cracks that have formed in the 150-meter-thick floating ice shelf, according to the BAS.

A new chasm, known as the North Rift, started moving toward another large crack in November and grew a kilometer a day in January.

Aerial video taken in mid-February shows the North Rift stretching as far as the eye can see.

The crack widened to several hundred meters on Friday morning — freeing it from the rest of the ice shelf, the BAS said.

“Our teams at BAS have been prepared for the calving of an iceberg from Brunt Ice Shelf for years,” said BAS Director Jane Francis in the statement.

She said they get daily updates on the ice shelf from an automated network of high-precision GPS instruments as well as satellite images.

“All the data are sent back to Cambridge for analysis, so we know what’s happening even in the Antarctic winter, when there are no staff on the station, it’s pitch black, and the temperature falls below minus 50 degrees C (or -58F),” she said.

A Navy meteorologist lost his wallet in Antarctica and got it back 53 years later

The BAS moved the Halley Research Station farther inland in 2016 as a precaution and staff have only worked there during the Antarctic summer since 2017 because evacuations would be difficult during the dark winter.

“This is a dynamic situation. Four years ago, we moved Halley Research Station inland to ensure that it would not be carried away when an iceberg eventually formed. That was a wise decision,” BAS Director of Operations Simon Garrod said in the statement. “Our job now is to keep a close eye on the situation and assess any potential impact of the present calving on the remaining ice shelf.”

Is an iceberg weighing hundreds of billions of tons on a penguin collision course?
An even bigger iceberg broke away from the Larsen C Ice Shelf in 2017 and floated into the open ocean late last year.

There have been six Halley Research Stations in place on the Brunt Ice Shelf since 1956 to make atmospheric and space weather observations.

The ice shelf flows toward the sea at a rate of about 2 kilometers per year and icebergs break off at irregular intervals.

“Change in the ice at Halley is a natural process and there is no connection to the calving events seen on Larsen C Ice Shelf, and no evidence that climate change has played a significant role,” according to the BAS.

Scientists are now watching the iceberg to see what it will do next.

“Over coming weeks or months, the iceberg may move away; or it could run aground and remain close to Brunt Ice Shelf,” Francis said in the statement.
