Getting your third vaccine dose of vaccine is currently the talk of the town – from the supermarket aisles to local cafes there is the constant undercurrent of talk as to when people are hoping to get their third jab or booster. With more than 66% of the population in UK having now been “double jabbed” and 56% of the population in the USA also having received two doses of the vaccine, the west are literally light years ahead of some Asian nations where many of the population are yet to receive their first dose.
South Korea’s President hints at Dog Meat Ban
Dogs are hitting the headlines in South Korea this week – and for the right reasons. Long overdue and long campaigned for – it is hoped that a dog meat ban is now being given serious consideration. On Monday, South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in raised the possibility of banning the consumption of dog meat in the country. He was speaking during a meeting with the prime minister and questioned whether it was time to ‘prudently consider’ a ban. Moon made the remarks after being briefed by Prime Minister Kim Boo-kyum on efforts to improve the handling of abandoned animals and a mandatory registration system for all dogs in the country.
