Gone was the septuagenarian teacher crowding me on a piano bench at my grandmother’s house, extolling the importance of Christian hymns. Then last spring, as the pandemic droned on, I’d lost my job, and our schools in the Boston area remained closed, I decided to start taking piano lessons again. The first day, I propped up my phone, clicked a Zoom link for our lesson and found an energetic college student staring back at me.

There was relief on the streets of London Monday morning (November 23)... "I think it's marvellous'' ...as residents reacted to the news that Britain is on track to make COVID-19 vaccines widely available by next spring. It comes after the shot developed by Oxford University and AstraZeneca was found to be up to 90% effective in trials. The encouraging late-stage trial results were the third published among the seven vaccine candidates Britain has ordered, following on from Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna. Adrian Hill is the director of the Jenner Institute at Oxford University. "If you'd said to me a year ago that in 2020 anybody would make a vaccine for a global pandemic in months rather than years, I would have thought that that was hugely challenging and difficult. Three groups have done it already, there may be a fourth by the end of the year. It is quite remarkable and it can only happen if extraordinary support is provided and that support has been forthcoming from all quarters.'' Britain has secured 100 million doses of the AstraZeneca shot, 40 million of the Pfizer vaccine and 5 million of Moderna's candidate. As the UK prepares to exit a national lockdown next week, some are cautiously optimistic. "Speaking for myself, if I had to wait a bit longer just to make sure that it's all very safe, that would be fine.''

It opened "administrative proceedings" that could lead to a court case and a fine of up to 5 million roubles ($65,670).

Your virtual Christmas party is about to get heated
With restrictions on family gatherings, instructions not to hug and a polite request to St Nicholas to "keep your distance", Europe is preparing for its first COVID-19 Christmas. Governments across the continent, which accounts for a quarter of reported global infections and deaths, are trying to fine-tune restrictions on public life to allow families to celebrate Christmas without super-spreading the virus. Most are due to unveil plans for Christmas this week and many are thinking along similar lines: restricted family gatherings, with festive traditions - like German Christmas markets and Wise Men parades in Spain - widely cancelled.
