Putin looks unsteady and his knees buckle as he walks to embrace his Belarusian counterpart in the undated footage viewed more than 1 million times.

    Scientists have found traces of coronavirus that could bolster the theory that the pandemic began with a leak from a laboratory. The discovery, from analysis of soil samples, suggests coronavirus may not have jumped from wildlife into humans naturally. More evidence is needed, however, particularly relating to exactly when the virus entered the samples.

Share this article Share Scientists in Hungary found traces of a unique variant of coronavirus while examining DNA from soil from Antarctica that had been sent to the firm Sangon Biotech in Shanghai.

    EUROPE is ramping up investigations into new Covid variants as cases surge. It comes after numerous countries have slapped lockdown-style restrictions onto citizens as the Christmas period approaches. 1A demonstration in Vienna two days before Austria's fourth national lockdownCredit: Rex The new Covid wave sweeping the continent could potentially be the result of a more stealthy strain of the coronavirus, experts say. But the pressure of evolution on the virus - from new cases and vaccinations - may also force a new strain to emerge. Called “selection pressure”, it happens when increasing immunity in the population favours a new variant that can escape the body’s defences. Countries in Europe are ramping up virus sequencing efforts to address the risk, Dr Andrea Ammon, director of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) said. Asked if she is worried about a new variant emerging, Dr Ammon told BBC One’s Andrew Marr Show: “With the high transmission ongoing right now, there is always the risk of a new variant, yes.  “So we are really monitoring very closely, we are supporting the...
    ISIS-K is recruiting jihadis from across Asia as it launches a ferocious guerrilla war against the Taliban, experts warn. Formed in 2015, the evil group killed at least 180 people in a bomb attack at Kabul airport last month. 4A Taliban soldier stands near an ISIS-K bomb attack last month near Kabul 4ISIS-K think the Taliban's approach to women is too 'moderate' 4 Further terror assaults over the weekend killed at least seven people including a child. But what is the death cult's ultimate goal in Afghanistan and why are some hardliners in the Taliban believed to be "switching sides"? Experts say that ISIS-K - or Islamic State Khorasan Province - see the Taliban as "moderates" who allow girls to be educated and even hold talks with non-Muslim western countries. Dr Rakib Ehsan, research fellow at the Henry Jackson Society, says the group is recruiting jihadis from across south and Central Asia who are "disillusioned" with the new regime in Afghanistan. He told The Sun Online: "ISIS-K are a different form of animal from the Taliban. "Their ultimate goal is...
    TAIWAN has staged anti-invasion drills amid fears China will launch an attack at any moment. It comes after China flew 19 nuke bombers and fighter jets into Taiwan air space, sparking World War Three fears. 5Taiwan has staged anti-invasion drillsCredit: Avalon.red 5Tensions between China and Taiwan have been mountingCredit: Avalon.red 5Taiwan is stepping up its defenseCredit: AP Taiwan is stepping up its defense as China has grown increasingly assertive in both East China and South China Seas. Across the region, the United States and its allies are deepening military cooperation and strategizing over an effective response. China regards Taiwan as part of its territory and has long threatened to use force to bring it under its control. According to Taiwan's Defence Ministry last week's Chinese military incursion involved 10 J-16 and four Su-30 fighter jets, an anti-submarine aircraft, and four H-6 bombers, which can carry nuclear weapons. China staged massive military drills in July, including assault landings and island-control exercises. China has described its war games as necessary to protect the country's sovereignty and deal with "collusion" between Taipei and Washington. Most read in The...

Four Chinese warships, including one of China's most advanced destroyers, were spotted near the Aleutian Island chain. 4China sent warships to AlaskaCredit: Handout 4 Photos taken by the US Coast Guard showed the Chinese naval vessels shadowed by the US coastguard as they travelled through international waters on August 29 and 30.

    BITCOIN has plummeted into the dreaded "death cross" phase amid fears of a cryptocurrency meltdown.  It has been tumbling since Friday in the wake of China’s expanding crackdown on crypto-mining, as investors grow more uncertain about the future of the leading currency. 3 At the time of writing, Coindesk shows the price of bitcoin slumped to as low as $32,250.68 which is down 3.13 per cent in the past 24 hours. Its fall comes as China continues its tough crackdown on mining and trading the cryptocurrency The country accounts for more than 60 per cent of mining and trading. After this huge price plunge, several analysts say this has formed what is known as a "death cross". This is a term to describe when a short-term average trendline crosses below a long-term average one. This pattern could lead to another major sell-off of the coin.  The opposite trend is called a "golden cross". The crash follows a year of highs, but Bitcoin is still worth significantly more than it was in March 2020 when it was valued below $5,000 (£3,601). But it...

    THREE Wuhan lab staff became sick and needed hospital care weeks before China disclosed the virus outbreak to the world, a bombshell spy report reveals. It comes as US top virus expert Dr Anthony Fauci now says he's "not convinced" Covid developed naturally and calls for a full investigation amid claims of a cover-up. ????

Sainbury’s says vulnerable customers are being given priority because “slots are still in high demand”.
