The illegal party near the town of Rennes in western France (see early report) was dispersed by local police. This was stated by French Interior Minister Gerald Dermanin, who added that a criminal investigation had been opened to locate the organizers of the party, which was attended by at least 2,500 people and was conducted in violation of the country’s corona restrictions – which even imposed a night curfew.

Foreigners from the UK and Spain also attended the party, which began on Thursday and took place at the warehouse.
Recommendation to tighten restrictions in Thailand
Health authorities in Thailand recommend tightening restrictions on business activity and human movement in 28 provinces, including the capital Bangkok.

The measures include suspending the activities of certain businesses and activities in crowded places, as well as recommending people to work from home and avoid unnecessary travel.
More than 2.5 million patients in the UK
Britain crossed the 2.5 million corona case mark in its territory yesterday. Nearly 75,000 people have died so far from the disease. However, the data relate to people who have died after within 28 days of being found to be positive for the virus, so the death toll may be even higher.
India prepares for a huge vaccination campaign
India is preparing to vaccinate its residents against Corona, in what is expected to be one of the largest operations in the world in this field. This is after the government yesterday approved the use of an Astraznica vaccine. Vaccinations are expected to begin next week, as soon as the National Medicines Control Authority approves it as well.
In India, 10.2 million corona cases were recorded, the second highest in the world. The country intends to vaccinate 300 million of its 1.3 billion inhabitants by mid-2021.

Authorities in Vietnam said a first case of the British mutation in the corona virus, which tends to spread more quickly, had been diagnosed.

Vietnam was soon able to control the outbreaks of the virus in the country. 1,474 people were diagnosed with the outbreak of the plague. 35 of them died from the complications of the virus. With the report, Vietnam became the 34th country where the mutation was discovered.
France: Hundreds of participants in an illegal party, clashes with police
About 2,500 people have come to a long party that has been taking place in a warehouse near the city of Rennes in western France since Thursday. French police said some of the perpetrators of the incident, which did not meet Corona restrictions, were citizens of Britain and Spain. As part of a police attempt to stop the party, passers-by confronted police officers, threw objects at them and set fire to a vehicle. One of the entertainers told the AFP news agency that “very few complied with the social distance guidelines at the event.” In France, where significant restrictions have been imposed including a night curfew ahead of New Year’s Eve, some spenders have reportedly said they hope to continue the party until Tuesday.

This week, Germany reported a record deaths from the virus – 1,129 people.
South Korea: Restrictions on social distance in the capital Seoul will last at least another two weeks
South Korea has announced that it will extend the social alienation restrictions – including a ban on gatherings of more than four people – in the capital Seoul and surrounding areas, until January 17. This is to reduce the jump in morbidity that led to an increase in coronary heart disease mortality. The state reported 824 new infections in the past day compared to more than a thousand in the day before.
Authorities in Brazil have reported more than 24,000 verified corona patients diagnosed in the past day and 462 deaths from the virus. More than 195,000 people have died in the epidemic in the South American country and more than 7.7 million have been infected.
And in the vaccine segment: About two million vaccines against Corona, developed by Oxford University and Astraznica, will be ready for weekly delivery to the UK starting in the middle of the month, the British Times reported.
