‘Suedwestpresse’ says that Kenya currently has two problems:
A) The weather is unusual! Long dry periods destroy harvest and kill their livestock. This is usually followed by very heavy rain that makes sewers overflow causing bacterial infectious disease among the human population.
B) Meanwhile Corona also causes panic among Kenya’s population, making some even steal hygienic articles. Just this week for example someone stole a whole order of respirators from a plane from Nairobi to Europe.

‘Domradio’ says that Germany’s children hospices urgently need many more nurses. Or else the few nurses for children hospices we already have will be working themselves to death with the heavy workload and constant working overtime they have to endure. Also foreign workers with less than perfect knowledge of the German language would be welcome – as long as they are qualified for work as a hospice nurse.

‘Domradio’ says that now the German ‘Bundesrat’ made a new law according to which as off march 2020 already attempted cybergrooming – contacting children online to win child-pornographic material or to meet them to have sex – is punishable. So far cybergrooming was punishable in Germany only if succeeded. If for example you contacted a child and succeeded in meeting it offline for sex or to gain pornographic material, then this was a crime and the sentence would be many years in jail. However if for example you attempted to contact a child for the same reasons, but the person you contacted turned out not to be a child, but another adult online with a fake account, then there was nothing the police could do. Now thanks to this law both scenarios would be punishable.
