#AceNewsDesk – Surge In Germans Migrating to South America to Escape Muslim Migrants as Paraguay is seeing a surge in German migrants, fleeing Islamic migrants in their own country and onerous coronavirus restrictions.

“We have a problem in Germany with Muslims,” said one of the exiles, adding: “Islam and vaccinations are big, big problems in this world.”

The German, named as Michael Schwartz and said to have arrived in Paraguay in November 2021, told the BBC that he had avoided taking coronavirus vaccinations — which the German health minister wants to make compulsory, although there is resistance to the policy in the federal legislature — because there are “many questions” around them, suggesting that “many Paraguayans” share his stance.

Stephan Hausen, another German emigrée who arrived in Paraguay with his family in the same month as Schwartz, raised similar concerns, in particular about “continuous” lockdowns which had left him “dumbfounded”.

“That was the final straw,” he said — although like Schwartz he also expressed concerns about Islamic migration to Germany.

“I think we should have more regulated migration [to Germany],” said Hausen’s wife, Theresa, suggesting that Berlin should cap the number of migrants allowed into the country and plan accordingly.

“We need to have a say in this!” she continued, perhaps alluding to the fact that notionally conservative former chancellor Angela Merkel, who opened the proverbial floodgates in 2015, did not campaign on a platform of mass migration — indeed, she declared that multiculturalism had “utterly failed” in 2010.

“Paraguay, in our experience, is a very Christian country, and we come from a Christian culture,” added her husband.

“We’ve got to know a great many people here and we’re on the same wavelength. In Germany it can’t happen like this, because in general the Muslims act so provocatively,” he said.

A pensive-looking Theresa appeared to try and dissuade him from continuing in this vein with a nervous “my dear”, prompting Stephan to tell his BBC interviewer: “Maybe this shouldn’t be filmed. It sounds a bit too harsh. We don’t want that.”

The publicly-funded British broadcaster aired the comments regardless.

A woman given the pseudonym “Hana” who helps Germans settle in Paraguay was also hesitant to express herself openly, speaking to the BBC only on the condition that they did not show her face or use her real name.

She claimed that the emigrants “want to protect their children”, saying that, in Germany, girls now “get raped, openly harassed in public spaces, because they are not wearing the [Islamic] veil.”

“A German woman is worth nothing to them,” she alleged, prompting her BBC interviewer to ask if she had “any evidence” to back up her claims.

“No, these are just my people who tell me that,” Hana responded, denying that she was racist and saying the only thing that mattered to her was having respect for the mainstream culture.

BREAKING: GERMANY Thousands Protest Plan to ‘ Raze Village ‘ Over Coal Mine Build

#AceBreakingNews – BERLIN (AP) — Thousands of people protested Saturday against plans to bulldoze a village in western Germany to expand a coal mine that environmental activists say should be shut down, not enlarged.

The German news agency dpa quoted police in the afternoon as saying that the demonstration in Luetzerath, about 40 kilometers (25 miles) west of Cologne, passed by peacefully. About 2,000 people took part, dpa reported.

It came weeks after the village’s last farmer sold his property to the utility company RWE after losing a court case against his eviction. The village is still inhabited by activists, some of whom have built tree houses in a bid to stop the nearby Garzweiler mine from being expanded.

Climate activists argue that the village and others nearby should not be demolished because burning the coal that’s still in the ground undermines Germany’s efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

Among those taking part in the protest was Ilyess El Kortbi, a climate activist from Ukraine, who criticized Germany for continuing to purchase coal, oil and gas from Russia, arguing that this helps fund Russia’s destructive war against his country.

Some German officials have countered that in order to reduce the country’s imports of Russian fossil fuels in the short term, Germany needs to rely on other sources of energy, including the lignite coal mined at Garzweiler.

Coal-fired power stations near the mine are among the European Union’s biggest emitters of carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas.

Recent opinion polls show a significant increase in voter support for the environmentalist Greens party ahead of next month’s regional election in North Rhine-Westphalia, where the mine is located.

BERLIN:German Government Warns Against Using Russias Kaspersky Antivirus Software

#AceSecurityDesk – Russian cybersecurity firm Kaspersky on Tuesday responded to an advisory released by Germany’s Federal Office of Information Security (BSI) against using the company’s security solutions in the country over “doubts about the reliability of the manufacturer.”

Kaspersky Antivirus Software

Calling that the decision was made on “political grounds,” the company said it will “continue to assure our partners and customers of the quality and integrity of our products, and we will be working with the BSI for clarification on its decision and for the means to address its and other regulators’ concerns.”

The statement from Kaspersky follows a warning from Germany’s cybersecurity authority, the Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik aka BSI, which recommended “replacing applications from Kaspersky’s portfolio of antivirus software with alternative products” due to risks that they could be exploited by Russia for a cyber attack.

“Companies and authorities with special security interests and operators of critical infrastructures are particularly at risk,” the BSI said, adding the company’s tools could be used for attacks against its own customers or be compelled to strike systems against its will amidst Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine.

Although not an outright ban, the announcement adds to similar restrictions put in place by the U.S.U.K., and Dutch governments in 2017 and 2018 to phase out the use of antivirus software made by Kaspersky Labs.

The Moscow-based company, however, noted that it had shifted its cyberthreat-related data processing infrastructure to the Swiss city of Zurich in 2018 and that its data services and engineering practices have been subjected to independent third-party assessments.

Earlier this month, Eugene Kaspersky, CEO of the namesake company, struck a neutral tone, hoping that negotiations between Ukraine and Russia would lead to “a compromise,” in an attempt to distance the organization from being branded as siding with Russia.

“We believe that peaceful dialogue is the only possible instrument for resolving conflicts,” Kaspersky tweeted on March 1. “War isn’t good for anyone.”

GERMANY: NordStream2 Pipeline HALTED As Part Of Sanctions On Russia

This is our daily list of post that is shared across Twitter & Telegram and on here on My.Daz.blog

‘Ace News Room With Kindness & Love❤️❤️’ , Feb.23, 2022 @AceDailyNews 

This just in from the cutting room floor 23/02/2022: 

#AceDailyNews says Chancellor Olaf Scholz said the pipeline, which was set to deliver gas directly from Russia to Germany, will now be reconsidered: according to iNews Report: Published: Feb.23, 2022

Germany has suspended plans to open the Nord Stream 2 pipeline carrying gas from Moscow to Berlin, as part of a package of sanctions imposed on Russia after it announced an invasion of Ukraine.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said this morning that Nord Stream 2 will “not be certified”, adding that he has instructed a new assessment of how Germany’s energy supplies can be secured.

The German premier explained that the “situation has fundamentally changed”, after Russian President Vladimir Putin sent tanks into bordering Ukraine this morning.

The 1,200km pipeline under the Baltic Sea, which was set to take gas from the Russian coast near St Petersburg to Lubmin in Germany, was completed last September.

Germany’s decision to put the pipeline on ice will have major ramifications for Europe’s future gas supply, but will spell relief for western counties including the UK and US which have always opposed the plans.

The €10bn (£8.4bn) project was drawn up as a way of solving gas shortages and soaring energy costs across Europe.

The major pipeline was intended to carry enough natural gas from Russia to fuel 26m households in Europe. Together with the existing Nord Stream pipeline, which runs parallel to Nord Stream 2, the twin channels were set to deliver more than a quarter of all the gas used each year by European Union countries.

Russian state-owned energy giant Gazprom shouldered half of the cost of Nord Stream 2, with western energy firms such as Shell and ENGIE of France paying the rest. 

But whilst former German Chancellor Angela Merkel helped spearhead the project, Mr Scholz, her successor, has insisted that the plug would be pulled if Russia invaded Ukraine.

Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky has previously called Nord Stream 2 “a dangerous political weapon”.

Meanwhile the US and UK, along with Russia’s neighbours Poland and Ukraine, also strongly oppose the pipeline.

#AceDailyNews says VIDEO Shows wave smashes windows on German ferry as wild weather batters Europe and UK Kindness & Love❤️❤️ says Thank God Nobody Injured

Posted 5h ago, updated 4h ago

The moment a huge wave crashed through the windows of a German commuter ferry has been caught on camera.

Play Video. Duration: 19 seconds
ABC News – Waves smash ferry window as massive storm rips through Europe.

The wave was whipped up by wild weather which is wreaking havoc across Europe and the UK.

One person was injured in Thursday’s accident that saw water flood into the vessel.

The ferry was sailing across the Elbe, heading for the Airbus factories in Hamburg, when it was hit.

Large ships had been banned from sailing up the Lower Elbe river that connects the port to the sea.

Meteorologists on Thursday warned that northern Europe could be battered by a series of storms over the coming days.

Strong winds swept across the region overnight, killing at least four people, downing power lines and causing widespread travel delays.

Meteorologists said they measured wind speeds of up to 135 kilometres per hour in low-lying areas of Germany.

In England, Eunice made landfall in Cornwall, on the country’s the west coast, according to Reuters. 

The national weather agency issued the highest level of alert for Friday, warning of “flying debris resulting in danger to life”.

It said roofs could be blown off buildings, with Eunice expected to produce winds of up to 150kph on the coast and 130kph inland.

“Storm Eunice will bring damaging gusts in what could be one of the most impactful storms to affect southern and central parts of the UK for a few years,” Met Office chief meteorologist Frank Saunders said.

“The red warning area indicates a significant danger to life as extremely strong winds provide the potential for damage to structures and flying debris.”

UK Security Minister Damian Hinds said troops were on stand-by to deal with the consequences of the weather.

“Everybody is on a state of readiness, a state of alert,” he said.

Eunice has already caused damage in parts of the north of England and Scotland.

Meanwhile in the Netherlands, flights are being grounded due to dangerous conditions.

KLM, the Dutch arm of airline group Air France-KLM, said it would cancel almost 170 flights to and from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport on Friday due to a severe weather system named Storm Eunice.

The Dutch meteorology institute urged people throughout the country to stay indoors when the storm arrived.

(BERLIN) Holocaust Report: Two New Memorials in Berlin Honor the Holocaust’s Overlooked Black Victims #AceHistoryDesk report

#AceHistoryReport – Dec.07: Officials installed Stolpersteine, or “stumbling stones,” honoring Ndumbe and Allen earlier this year. A type of memorial common in Germany and other European countries, the brass plaques typically commemorate victims of the Holocaust. Though they number in the tens of thousands, few memorialized Black people—until now……

#AceHistoryDesk says that two brass “stumbling stones” are among the first to memorialize the Afro-German people murdered by the Nazis

Though people of African ancestry were among the millions murdered by the Nazis during World War II, their persecution is often overlooked in accounts of the Holocaust’s horrors. As Jennifer Neal reports for Atlas Obscura, newly unveiled memorials in Berlin seek to bring attention to two of these oft-forgotten Black victims: Martha Ndumbe and Ferdinand James Allen.

“The Black victims of the Nazis have long not been considered—neither by academic research nor by memorial politics,” Sophia Schmitz, a historian with the Berlin-based Stolpersteine project, tells Atlas Obscura. “But in a town like Berlin, a Black community in the 1920s and 1930s did exist, all of whom were at first harassed and later more often than not murdered during Nazi rule. It is our aim to uncover their stories and make them present again, late as it is.”

When the Nazis came to power in 1933, Germany was home to around 1,500 to 2,000 Black residents, as well as a significant number of Black performers, athletes and diplomats who were temporarily living in the city, Robbie Aitken, a historian at Sheffield Hallam University, tells Harrison Mwilima of Deutsche Welle (DW).The Stolpersteine monuments serve as everyday reminders of the lives lost during the Holocaust. Von Christian Michelides via Wikimedia Commons under CC BY-SA 4.0

“[A]lready around 1933, some Black men and their families had left Germany because of the rise of the Nazis,” Aitken says.

Some of the country’s permanent Black residents hailed from Germany’s colonies in Africa. Others were descendants of Black French Army personnel stationed in Germany after World War I—a group tarred with the racist label “Rhineland Bastards.” In 1937, notes the Wiener Holocaust Library, approximately 385 of these 600 to 800 children were forcibly sterilized by the Nazi regime.

Per the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, people of African descent in Nazi Germany were “socially and economically ostracized.” They were barred from attending university, fired from their jobs and even deprived of their citizenship. An unknown number of Afro-Germans were imprisoned in concentration and death camps, but the majority of the country’s Black population “survived the Third Reich,” according to the Wiener Holocaust Library.

Ndumbe was born in Berlin in 1902. As the online Stolpersteine portalnotes, her mother, Dorothea Grunwaldt, was from Hamburg, while her father, Jacob Ndumbe, was a native of Cameroon. He moved to Germany in 1896 to participate in a Völkerschauen, or “human zoo,” that exhibited Africans in racist, stereotypical contexts.

Aitken tells DW that discrimination made it difficult for Ndumbe to find work, so “she turned to prostitution and petty crimes for her survival.” The Nazis imprisoned her as an “asocial professional criminal” and eventually sent her to the Ravensbrück concentration camp, where she died in 1945.

Allen, meanwhile, was born in 1898 to James Cornelius Allen, a Black British musician from the Caribbean, and Lina Panzer, a resident of Berlin. He suffered from epilepsy and was killed at the Bernburg psychiatric hospital in 1941 as part of Aktion T4, the Nazis’ mass murder of disabled people.

As Lois Gilman reported for Smithsonian magazine in 2007, artist Gunter Demnig created the Stolpersteine project to recognize individual Holocaust victims. The 4- by 4-inch brass-covered blocks provide a bare outline of a person’s life—their name, date of birth, a word or two about their treatment under the Nazi regime, and the date of their murder. They stand in front of the last place the person voluntarily lived. 

“If the stone is in front of your house, you’re confronted,” Demnig told Smithsonian. “People start talking. To think about six million victims is abstract, but to think about a murdered family is concrete.”Allen suffered from epilepsy and was killed as part of the Nazis’ mass murder of disabled people. Sheffield Hallam University

Aitken led the effort to place the Stolpersteine for Ndumbe and Allen as part of his work researching Germany’s Black community and compensation claims by Black Holocaust victims, reports Lisa Wong for the Sheffield-based Star. He argues that the invisibility of Black people in the history of the Nazi era reflects such factors as a lack of documentation and reluctance on the part of Germans to contend with the country’s colonial past.

“I hope these new memorials help to shed further light on the devastating impact that Nazi rule had on the lives of Germany’s Black residents,” says Aitken in a statement.

Prior to the installation of the new stones, only two other Stolpersteine recognized Black victims killed by the Nazis. A plaque in Berlin honors Mahjub bin Adam Mohamed, a onetime child soldier for the German colonial army in East Africa. Mohamed moved to Berlin in 1929, working as a teacher, waiter and actor. The Nazis accused him of “transgression of racial barriers” for having relationships with German women and sent him to the Sachsenhausen concentration camp, where he died in 1944. 

A fourth stone in Frankfurt commemorates Hagar Martin Brown, a South African man who worked as a servant. Nazi doctors used him as a test subject for medical chemicals, leading to his death in 1940.

Aitken tells DW that he is continuing to investigate the stories of Black victims of the Holocaust.

“I hope there are more Stolpersteine to come at some point,” he says. “There were clearly more Black victims, but the difficulty is in finding concrete, documented evidence to prove victimhood. This is difficult because of the Nazis’ destruction of records.”

(MYANMAR) Press Freedom Report: Since military put Mratt Kyaw Thu on a wanted list because of his critical reporting, his life has been in acute danger and he was forced to flee,” said Katja Gloger, Executive Spokeswoman for RSF Germany #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.02: We call on the Federal Minister of the Interior Horst Seehofer to take responsibility for Mratt Kyaw Thu’s asylum procedure.”

RSF Report: ‘Asks Germany to let Myanmar journalist Mratt Kyaw Thu apply for asylum after the journalist was able to obtain a Schengen visa at the Spanish embassy of one of Myanmar’s neighbouring countries, but decided to enter Germany during a stopover in Frankfurt’

RSF REPORT:

Thanks, among other things, to a three-week stay in Germany on a Goethe-Institut programme, he has many contacts and is well connected there. When he arrived at Frankfurt airport, he applied for asylum. However, he was refused entry and a Dublin Procedure was initiated, because under the Dublin Regulation he is obliged to file his application in the country of destination, in his case Spain.

At the same time, at the request of the federal police, on 24 April 2021 the Frankfurt District Court issued an order for him to be put into preventive detention. Since that date Mratt Kyaw Thu has been living in a closed refugee accommodation centre at the airport. He had to hand over his mobile phone to the police, he has no internet access and he can only speak to a handful of people.

Germany can take responsibility for the asylum procedure

Article 17 (1) of the Dublin III Regulation provides an EU member state with the possibility, known as the sovereignty clause, to declare itself responsible for processing an asylum procedure even though it would normally not be responsible for this process. So far Germany has systematically applied the sovereignty clause for asylum seekers who entered the country via Greece and for Syrian asylum seekers. In the case of Mratt Kyaw Thu, too, many circumstances speak in favour of applying this possibility.

A broad alliance of people and organizations supporting him argue that granting a journalist like him a place where he can be safe would be a good move not only from a human rights perspective, but also as regards gaining a deeper understanding of the anti-democratic developments in Myanmar. Few journalists are as well connected as he is in the country. International media rely on his knowledge and analysis of the situation there. German broadcaster Deutsche Welle has already offered him a paid internship, and the daily paper tageszeitung (taz) has offered him work on a freelance basis.

RSF published an exclusive interview with Mratt Kyaw Thu last April, in which he explained his dreadful working conditions in %yanmar before he left the country. He became known internationally as one of the few Myanmar journalists to report critically on the persecution of the Rohingya ethnic minority by the country’s military in 2017. He received the AFP news agency’s Kate Webb Prize for his coverage of the crackdown. Since the military coup on 1 February, he has taken the lead in reporting on the pro-democracy movement against the military junta, the Civil Disobedience Movement. He provides daily updates to more than 250,000 people via his Twitter and Telegram channels.

Since the military coup in February there have been numerous serious violations of press freedom in Myanmar. Reporters have been shot at with live ammunition, editorial offices have been raided, and mobile internet has been completely shut down on several occasions.

(GERMANY) Albert Einstein Report: In a previously unknown letter penned by the Nobel prize-winning physicist, Einstein considered whether new physics insights could come from studying how animals sense the world around them #AceHistoryDesk report

#AceHistoryReport – May.14: The short letter was addressed to Glyn Davys, an engineer with the Royal British Navy, in October 1949, and mentioned the prominent bee researcher Karl von Frisch:

Albert Einstein wrote a letter 72 years ago that showed his curiosity about birds and bees: ‘Developing groundbreaking physics theories wasn’t the only thing on Albert Einstein’s mind: It turns out he also had a keen interest in the birds and the bees’

Its content suggests that Einstein’s thought processes were ahead of his time, with research on animal sensory systems not emerging for another seven decades. 

An old letter

The letter, which was studied by a team led by RMIT researchers, was published this week in The Journal of Comparative Physiology A.

Adrian Dyer, a vision scientist at RMIT in Melbourne, said the letter demonstrated that Einstein was curious about science outside of physics and mathematics. 

“One of the reasons I think Einstein is still so well known and prominent in today’s society is that he had a very multidisciplinary way of thinking about the world,” said Dr Dyer, who co-authored the paper on the letter.

Bees learn maths and a letter resurfaces

In 2019, Scarlett Howard, who studies bee cognition at Monash University in Melbourne, and colleagues published a series of papers demonstrating bees’ cognitive powers, such as their ability to grasp the concept of zero and solve simple maths problems

“If we showed them three blue dots, we trained them to add one, and if we showed them three yellow dots, then they needed to subtract one,” said Dr Howard, also a co-author of the paper.

“We basically taught them plus one and minus one.”

The research grabbed the spotlight in the media, but also caught the eye of Judith Davys, a widow living in the UK.

Ms Davys had read the researchers’ paper on bees’ mathematical problem-solving abilities, and reached out to Dr Dyer about a 72-year-old letter she had kept.

The letter, which was addressed to her late husband Mr Davys, was from none other than Einstein.

After verifying with the Albert Einstein Archives at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem that the letter was genuine, Dr Dyer and his team spent a year analysing it and piecing together what prompted Einstein to write it.

A lasting impression

The team suspected the letter was a reply to Mr Davys, who studied the use of radar to detect ships and aircraft, a top-secret research topic at the time.

To put the letter in context, the researchers dived into archives of news articles that had been published in England in 1949.

They found a news story that discussed von Frisch’s discovery that honey bees use polarised sunlight — which travels in one direction — to find their way around, a finding that eventually earned him a Nobel Prize in 1973.

The story had been published in The Guardian newspaper in London in July, 1949, which may have prompted Mr Davys to write to Einstein. 

The team also discovered that Einstein had attended a lecture by von Frisch at Princeton University in April 1949.  

The following day, Einstein and von Frisch met in private, and while there are no records of what the two scientists discussed, Einstein’s letter to Mr Davys offers a clue.

“I am well acquainted with Mr. v. Frisch’s admirable investigations,” Einstein wrote in his letter to Mr Davys.

Dr Dyer said the letter’s opening line suggested von Frisch’s bee discoveries had made an impression on Einstein.

“The fact that Einstein took the time to go and listen to von Frisch’s lecture, meet with him after and then respond to Davys later, means that he was very aware that to do good research, it’s good to look at other opportunities and other ways of thinking about the world,” Dr Dyer said.

Unearthed letter shows how Albert Einstein predicted a link between physics and animal behaviour.

The secrets of animal senses

In the letter, Einstein went on to discuss whether studying bees could help uncover new physics insights. 

“But I cannot see a possibility to utilize those results in the investigation concerning the basis of physics,” Einstein wrote.

“Such could only be the case if a new kind of sensory perception, resp. of their stimuli, would be revealed through the behaviour of the bees.”

Andrew Greentree, a physicist at RMIT, said Einstein’s comments here reflected that the physics of the time could not explain sensory perception in animals.

For instance, concepts that we are now beginning to understand — such as the way dolphins and bats use sound as a navigation guide — were not understood then, said Professor Greentree, one of the paper’s co-authors.

But there is still more to learn about the connections between biology and physics.

“Biology is perhaps the ultimate proving ground for physics,” Professor Greentree said.

“Nature — using nothing more complicated than natural selection — has taken subtle effects and turned them into wondrous and practical features of the world around us.”

A scientist ahead of his time

The limited knowledge of animal sensing at the time didn’t stop Einstein from exploring the possibilities. 

In just one sentence, Einstein proposed that studying animal behaviours could be the key to new discoveries, decades before scientists began unravelling how animals perceive their environment.

“It is thinkable that the investigation of the behaviour of migratory birds and carrier pigeons may someday lead to the understanding of some physical process which is not yet known,” Einstein wrote.

Indeed, research over the past decade has revealed how birds use the Earth’s magnetic field to help keep them on track while migrating over thousands of kilometres. 

And one of the theories for birds’ magnetic-sensing capabilities is underpinned by ideas that Einstein proposed himself: quantum randomness and entanglement. 

While Einstein dismissed these physics concepts as “spooky action at a distance”, research today shows he was actually onto something when it comes to how birds perceive magnetic fields.

Quantum randomness and entanglement suggests certain chemical reactions that occur in light-sensitive proteins in bird retinas are influenced by the Earth’s magnetic field, enabling birds to use it like a compass. 

Professor Greentree said Einstein’s musings suggested he was broad-minded and willing to share his ideas with anyone who asked a question.

“He was open to new ideas about the origins of sensory perception, even if they might conflict with the physics that he himself helped to forge,” Professor Greentree said.

Dr Dyer said we could all learn something from Einstein’s letter.

“If elite-level researchers like Einstein were willing to look at information with very open eyes, then perhaps we should all have very open eyes for how we approach new solutions for the world,” Dr Dyer said.

The medical personnel will be on hand to assist the international humanitarian movement Red Cross in efforts to aid the ailing nation of 1.3 billion people. India has become overwhelmed with coronavirus cases in recent weeks, daily registering hundreds of thousands of infections and thousands of deaths.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said a “deep friendship” connects India and Germany and that “Germany will send urgently needed goods to provide care to the patients.”

International aid in the form of oxygen and other medical supplies has been arriving in India over the last few days to relieve critical shortages. Germany is providing €50 million ($60 million) of goods and is one of a number of countries that has pledged to help.

India’s dire COVID-19 situation 

Vaccine drive struggles to take flight

India registered a grim global record of 401,993 daily coronavirus cases on Saturday as it struggled to carry out the biggest round of its vaccination drive.

The new infections took the country’s caseload past 19 million while its death toll now stands at nearly 212,000 after 3,523 lives were lost to the virus in the past 24 hours, government data showed.

Global firms join efforts to help India

Hit by a ferocious second wave of the pandemic, India is the first country to cross 400,000 daily cases after it reported over 300,000 daily infections for nine days in a row.

As the surge overwhelmed hospitals and cremation sites, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday evening held a Cabinet meeting to discuss measures to save the health infrastructure. The proposals include adding hospital beds, as well as ways of tackling shortages of medical oxygen and antiviral drugs.
