With the province set to unveil its travel exemption categories in a streamlined online application form Tuesday, Newfoundland and Labrador’s chief medical officer of health told reporters Monday to expect more information about gatherings over the Christmas season. The comment came as Dr. Janice Fitzgerald answered questions about the fact that formal gatherings of up to 50 people are still technically allowed in Alert Level 2. “I continue to hear of parties being planned for Christmas and New Year’s Eve as if this year is the same as any other,” she said during the COVID-19 virtual briefing from St. John’s. “It is not the same. This year is very different.” Even though confirmed active cases in the province had climbed to 36 by the last day of November, Fitzgerald said many people remain lulled into a false sense of security. Community spread of the coronavirus is still a threat, she said. “A Christmas party can set up the perfect conditions for that to happen,” she said. “To be clear, small gatherings with close, consistent contacts are acceptable. A party with 50 people is not on.” Fitzgerald added that bars and restaurants also have to adhere rigidly to pandemic health measures over the Christmas season. That means hand-washing, physically distancing and mask wearing are a must. Premier Andrew Furey added his own admonitions in his remarks Monday, saying it’s on everyone’s shoulders to prevent the kinds of lockdowns being forced on other jurisdictions as a second wave of COVID-19 continues to rise. “You need to focus on what you and your family are doing, as opposed to what others are doing,” he said. “You must listen, Newfoundland and Labrador, now more than ever before.” But the premier did try to show a more compassionate side. "The continuous spread of the virus and in many parts of the country may increase anxiety levels here at home, but it’s going to be OK,” he said. “Please, don’t panic. Take a deep breath and stay calm.” The province tallied one new confirmed case of COVID-19 Monday, a woman under the age of 40 in the Eastern Health region. She is now one of 36 active cases. Health Minister Dr. John Haggie tried to mitigate fears he sees on social media about the fact some cases cannot initially be traced to a source when they’re first reported. He said sometimes a case comes to light just as the day’s tally is about to be released, so very little contact tracing has taken place. “We label that as under investigation and provide no more information, not because we are trying to hide anything, but simply because we do not have it,” he said. So far, there is no evidence of community spread beyond those who have been traced as contacts of existing cases. In an effort to make application for travel exemptions more efficient, the Department of Health is posting a new online form Tuesday that spells out acceptable reasons to be granted an exemption. Many of these are already known, and Haggie mentioned a few on Monday, including having to provide care to an elderly relative. “End-of-life and palliative care are other occasions which have been very emotional and understandably so, and we have done our best within the framework of COVID safety to permit these visits to occur.” In other developments Monday: • Furey said a more clear plan on how and when a vaccine rollout is likely to happen will be released within the next week to 10 days. • Haggie confirmed that the Elf on a Shelf has been designated an essential worker. “Some may need to isolate, and I would suggest you discuss this with your elf before coming to any premature conclusions.”Peter Jackson, Local Journalism Initiative Reporter, The Telegram
Perched on a hilltop overlooking the Indonesian city of Bandung neat lines of teepee-style tents are set up each evening on a patch of lawn in front of a large screen. Known as 'Cinema Under the Stars', the outdoor camp-style movie space opened two months ago in the capital of Indonesia's most populous province of West Java with the aim of keeping people both entertained and socially distanced. "And what's more interesting is that they use tents here, so I wanted to give it a try," she added.
(Bloomberg) -- U.S. President-elect Joe Biden spoke by phone Monday for the first time with Argentine President Alberto Fernandez, marking the start of a relationship key to Argentina’s negotiations with the International Monetary Fund.The two leaders spoke about the economic situation in Latin America, bilateral relations and Pope Francis, who is from Argentina and met Biden, a Catholic, during his time as vice president, according to an Argentine government statement. The call lasted 35 minutes and was confirmed by both leaders’ press teams.Biden’s administration will play a key role in the IMF agreement Fernandez’s government is negotiating. The U.S. is the IMF’s largest member by financing, and any major Fund agreement requires U.S. backing. A previous record IMF agreement in 2018 granted to Argentina was heavily advocated for by U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration.Although Foreign Minister Felipe Sola said in a radio interview that Fernandez brought up the topic of U.S. support at the IMF to Biden during the call, the president’s chief spokesman, Juan Pablo Biondi, clarified to Bloomberg News that the IMF was never discussed in that context with Biden.Economy Minister Martin Guzman, Argentina’s top negotiator with the IMF, did participate in the call with Biden.“It was a very positive call,” Guzman told journalists Monday. “There are two leaders that have a shared vision on the value of working together in a cooperative way.”Fernandez plans to announce a multi-year economic plan as part of the IMF deal, a key ingredient seen by investors as an opportunity to restore some confidence and credibility in the South American country. Argentina is in its third straight year of recession with inflation near 40% and double-digit unemployment.Fernandez was the first leader in Latin America to congratulate Biden on his election victory, according to a tally by the Washington-based Wilson Center. Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador have both so far failed to do so.Fernandez said in recent interviews that he hopes to relaunch the U.S.-Argentine relationship once Biden takes office in January.(Updates with government spokesman comment in fourth, economy minister comment in fifth paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

(Bloomberg) -- China’s economic offensive against Australia is partly designed to warn countries against vocally opposing Beijing’s interests, particularly with Joe Biden looking to unite U.S. allies. Yet it’s already showing signs of backfiring.China last week imposed anti-dumping duties of up to 212% on Australian wine, the latest in a slew of measures curbing imports from coal to copper to barley. Tensions escalated further on Monday after a Chinese Foreign Ministry official tweeted a fake photo of an Australian soldier holding a knife to the throat of an Afghan child.Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison quickly called on China to apologize for the “repugnant” tweet. China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying, in turn, questioned whether he lacks “a sense of right and wrong” and said overall ties deteriorated because Australia “took wrong measures on issues bearing on China’s core interests.”To Beijing, the attacks on Australia are meant to deter others like Canada, the European Union and Japan from joining a U.S.-led campaign to counter China’s rise. Communist Party officials see Morrison’s government as one of their most vocal critics, and an easy target: China accounts for about 35% of Australia’s total trade, three times more than the next highest country, Japan. Australia accounts for less than 4% of China’s commerce.“It is only natural that China wants to sound some precautionary alarm” to warn countries off building an anti-China alliance, said Zhu Feng, professor of international relations at Nanjing University. “After all, confrontation is the least wanted by the world now.”China is betting that most Western countries will avoid provoking Beijing and risking the kind of trade retaliation Australia is suffering, particularly with their economies weighed down by the pandemic. At the same time, it has sought to strengthen ties with Japan, South Korea and nations in Southeast Asia, in part by offering more trade, investment in 5G networks and access to Covid-19 vaccines.Yet China’s moves are adding to worries about its use of economic coercion, and could end up pushing middle powers closer to the U.S. camp. President-elect Biden has vowed to rebuild relationships with allies damaged by Donald Trump’s “America First” policies, which in turn would make it more palatable for some allies to align more closely with his administration.“Biden is planning is to resume U.S. international policy after a four-year hiccup,” said Jeff Moon, the U.S.’s assistant trade representative for China for part of the Obama administration, adding that the scope of China’s actions against Australia was “breathtaking.”“The leverage is to work together,” he added. “That is what they most fear, and they see that coming.”While it’s still unclear how exactly that would work, several key groupings including the Quad -- the U.S., Japan, Australia and India -- as well as Five Eyes -- the U.S., Australia, U.K., Canada and New Zealand -- have been revived in recent years. New initiatives have also been floated, including one that would give countries an alternative to Huawei Technologies Co. for 5G networks and another that would find alternative supply chains to China.The Wall Street Journal reported in November that the Trump administration was formulating a joint retaliation plan that would allow the West to push back against the kind of economic coercion China is inflicting on Australia. The European Union also plans to call on the U.S. to seize a “once-in-a-generation” opportunity to forge a new global alliance that would counter China, the Financial Times reported Monday, citing a set of draft policy proposals.For its part, the Trump administration is continuing to pressure China with moves to prevent some of its biggest companies from accessing American technology. Senior officials have also stepped up visits to Asia ahead of the planned inauguration for Biden on Jan. 20: Following a visit to Japan in November, National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien said leaders in Tokyo saw the Quad as a “game changer.”“China against any individual country, including quite powerful countries like South Korea or Thailand or even Japan, China would be dominant,” said Malcolm Rifkind, a former British foreign secretary. “But in the real world when you have such a situation, your potential victims join up to ensure a collective and coordinated response.”‘Evil’ AustraliaPart of China’s aggressive response is for a domestic audience. State news agency Xinhua carried a commentary that called Morrison’s request for an apology “utterly absurd,” while the Communist Party’s Global Times called Australia “evil” in an editorial. Social media users on Weibo and Wechat commended Hua, the Foreign Ministry spokesperson, for exuding the “style of a great power” in her responses to repeated questions by foreign journalists. Beijing has also sought to distinguish between countries that step out of line, in effect playing them off each other. Earlier this year the Global Times said China should deliver “public and painful” retaliation to the U.K. for banning Huawei but avoid a full-fledged confrontation because it saw Britain as the “weak link” in the Five Eyes.In a phone call with his EU counterpart Josep Borrell last week, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi also signaled the bloc should think twice before strengthening ties with the incoming Biden administration, as the two sides look to complete an investment treaty by the end of the year. “Strategic autonomy is a necessary character for staying independent,” Wang said, adding that it involves “opposing man-made ‘decoupling’, opposing confrontation among different blocs and a new ‘Cold War.’”Australia, on the other hand, has faced China’s unabashed wrath ever since Morrison’s government called for Beijing to allow independent investigators into Wuhan to discover the origins of Covid-19. Chen Hong, director of the Australian Studies Centre at East China Normal University who said he had his visa to Australia revoked this year because he was labeled a national security risk, said Australia’s actions differentiated it from New Zealand, which maintained relatively good ties with Beijing.“Australia has been purposefully echoing the Washington’s anti-China policy and coordinated with Trump’s strategic intentions,” Chen said.Allies GalvanizedStill, in an early sign that Beijing’s Afghan tweet may have galvanized some of Australia’s partners into responding, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said on Tuesday that her own diplomats had directly registered concern with Chinese authorities over the “unfactual post.” Lawmakers in the U.K. also condemned China’s actions, with former Conservative party leader Iain Duncan Smith urging Britain to do more to stand with Australia, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.In Canberra, Australian officials have said Morrison’s government is speaking out for its own interests regardless of the U.S. on issues like China’s increasing grip over Hong Kong and assertiveness in the South China Sea. Morrison himself has also sought to portray Australia as stuck in the middle of the U.S. and China -- a view also shared by Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, who said in an interview in November that many nations in Asia aren’t keen to join an anti-China bloc.Even after he called on China to apologize for the Afghan tweet on Monday, Morrison again sought to restart talks with Beijing without conditions.“Countries around the world are watching this, they are seeing how Australia is seeking to resolve these issues and they are seeing these responses,” Morrison told reporters on Monday. “This impacts not just on the relationship here, but with so many other sovereign nations not only in our own region, but like-minded countries around the world.”The spat has only hardened attitudes toward China within Australia, to the point where even business groups have stopped pushing for warmer ties, according to Natasha Kassam, a former Australian diplomat who worked in China and is now a research fellow at the Sydney-based Lowy Institute. At the same time, she said, it’s “impossible to imagine” China apologizing to Australia.“While there may be an emboldening of countries in the region responding to China,” she said, “it’s equally likely that a number of countries will see the way in which Australia’s export industry has been punished and think twice about making their own criticisms.”(Updates with Chinese domestic media reaction in 14th paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
