New problem in EU
Differences in the European Union over the vaccine passport system have begun. Right now it is just a proposal, but some countries have raised questions even before the rollout. Today EU members are going to have a very important meeting in this regard. It is believed that a final decision may come out in this meeting.
If you understand the vaccine passport in easy language, it means vaccination. That is, people who have got vaccinated Kovid-19 and if they have evidence for it, then they can travel unabated in other countries of the union. They will have to show digital documents of vaccination before the trip and this will be considered their passport. Greece and Spain agree on this. But, France and Germany have raised some questions. France says it is too early to take such steps.
Toughness in Canada’s Toronto again

According to preliminary information, the Canadian government has extended the restrictions until July. The Pride Parade that takes place every year has also been canceled.
