Forget the oom-pah brass bands and buy gifts early - with a predrafted list to keep shopping trips efficient -- this COVID-19 Christmas season, Swiss health authorities advised the public on Friday. Bands usually blast out festively at this time of year but the Federal Office of Public Health advised against inviting them to parties as the country battles to keep coronavirus in check.
Londoners are set to spend a bumper £1.1 billion online over this Black Friday weekend. Retail bots are software programs that never sleep, and they are easy to buy. It has long been a problem on Black Friday, and recently hit the PS5 and Xbox Series X launches, with gamers everywhere frustrated at their inability to check out on a dream Christmas purchase, despite having waited patiently for the drop.

Ten COVID-19 vaccines could be available by the middle of next year if they win regulatory approval, but their inventors need patent protection, the head of the global pharmaceutical industry group said on Friday. Vaccines by Pfizer and BioNtech, as well as Moderna and AstraZeneca have shown promising results in large clinical trials, but there is no question of "cutting corners", said Thomas Cueni, director-general of the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Associations (IFPMA). It would be a mistake to lift patent protection to allow compulsory licensing and try to make vaccines requiring such complex quality assurance without expert staff and quality control procedures, he said.

Pogba was last in action for France in their 4-2 victory over Sweden during the international break this month and missed United's 1-0 league win over West Bromwich Albion and Tuesday's 4-1 Champions League victory over Istanbul Basaksehir. The 27-year-old had missed a large part of last season with an ankle injury and Solskjaer said that his current problem is not a recurrence.

Ani Sirois, a respiratory nurse, has spent months caring for coronavirus patients at a Portland, Oregon, hospital, and she's only getting busier as infections — and hospitalizations — surge before the holidays. The national organization says industry research tells them many people who put up an artificial tree last year plan to buy a real tree this year, and most are citing the pandemic as the reason.

Aguero, who joined City in 2011 and is their all-time leading scorer with 255 goals in all competitions, is out of contract at the end of the season and can speak to overseas clubs from January. The 32-year-old sustained a hamstring injury in their 1-1 league draw at West Ham United last month, a week after making his first start of the season following knee surgery.
Jonathan Joseph has insisted there is no danger of England being caught cold when they face a struggling Wales in the Autumn Nations Cup.
Having left Manchester United with a bitter taste two years ago, a new social media-friendly Jose Mourinho has quickly rediscovered his spark at Tottenham Hotspur, but despite Spurs' fine form, the Portuguese coach remains grounded. Ahead of the trip to his former club Chelsea on Sunday, where he won three Premier League titles during two spells at the club, Mourinho, having lost his mojo after a difficult two years at Old Trafford, appears happy again in the capital. Instead, the man Mourinho singled out most for criticism last season -- Tanguy Ndombele -- is front and centre of the Spurs revolution, while an ostensibly happier Spurs boss has created an Instagram account where he is more willing to poke fun at himself and his players.
