The first COVID19 vaccination in USA, outside of vaccine trials, took place this morning in New York City.
Sandra Lindsay, a nurse in Queens, at the Long Island Jewish Medical Center, was the first person to receive the vaccine.
She said, she hoped her public vaccination would instill confidence in New Yorkers that the shots were safe. 30% of the US population could be immunized by the end of March, 2021.
Additionally, masks and social distancing will still remain crucial for months to come.
.
Since the beginning of the Pandemic in the US, 300,000 people died in COVID19 alone, much more than any other disease.
Today was a historic day for New York City and the United States.

Today is a big day! I woke up to a great news from my home country. Azerbaijan has liberated its cultural and historical center from Armenian occupation after 28 years! Man, I still can't believe because this conflict started when I was a kid. I rememember the pain of refugees who were forced to leave Shusha and other Azerbaijani territories by Armenia, I remember the anger and anxiety of my people, I remember fallen soldiers of our neighborhood and I remember how I was scared to loose my dad in this war in 90s. It became childhood trauma of my generation. And now I'm crying with joy and happiness that this conflict is coming to an end and Azerbaijan is liberating its territories from Armenian occupation 30 years later! 30 years of useless peaceful negotiations which ended up with war 2 monthes ago. I didn't make any post since then 'coz my mind and soul was with my people. I was anxious, full of anger and emotions all this time. I'm mad at Armenia for not solving this conflict peacfully and making so many soldiers fall. War means death of civilians, childhood traumas, loosing kids and parents... war is horrible... Thank God that this war is shorter than it was in 90s (4 years) and now our 1 mln refugees can go back to their homes. Justice always wins! We should never give up believing in our dreams! Now, I can't wait to visit Karabakh😭🇦🇿🎉 Viva Patria🇦🇿🎉🥳

On World 🌎 Humanitarian Day August 19th, we thank Humanitarians around the world, 🌎 who risk their lives to save others.
.
The theme of 2020 is the campaign to feature personal stories of front lines heroes; to find out what drives them to continue to save and protect lives during the COVID-19 Pandemic!

UN Secretary General @antonioguterres says,
“Today join me in renewing our appreciation and support for the brave humanitarians”
.
“The lack of access and restrictions placed by Governments around the world has resulted in communities, civil society and local NGOs being the frontline of the response.
Therefore, the campaign presents the inspiring personal stories of humanitarians who are treating and preventing COVID-19, providing food to vulnerable people in need, providing safe spaces for women and girls in lockdown; delivering babies; fighting locusts and running refugee camps, all amid the COVID-19 pandemic.” ~ United Nations

What’s exactly happening Inside Lebanon 🇱🇧?

At around 6 pm, Mohammed Safa sat on his desk, finishing up some paperworks in Tyre, Lebanon. Suddenly he heard a noise that shattered his building, windows and door started to break. When the window glass fell, he found himself pressed in the wall, closing his eyes not knowing what exactly is happening. Safa realized he and his family might be in the middle of a war zone. His memories of the 2006 Lebanese war with Israel started to flicker, it was such a devastation. Once the shaking of the ground started to slow down, his family members came out, they looked at each other unable to speak with clarity, they were all shocked. That day, he just returned from the port of Lebanon 2 hours ago, where the biggest explosion of ammonium nitrate took place on Tuesday August 4, 2020. He was just there, can’t believe it..
