New Zealand may not get back to having zero coronavirus cases in the community, the director general of health said on Thursday, as the country continues efforts to stamp out the infectious Delta variant of the virus. New Zealand eliminated COVID-19 last year and had been largely virus-free, barring a small number of cases in February, until the latest outbreak of the Delta variant erupted in August, prompting Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern to order a nationwide lockdown. "We may not get back to zero but the important thing is we are going to keep finding any infections and basically continue to contact trace, test and isolate people so that we stop the virus circulating in the community... that's the aim," Ashley Bloomfield, the director general of health told Radio New Zealand.

Legalising cannabis is about the only thing Germany's Free Democrats (FDP) could easily agree with the centre-left Social Democrats and Greens, the FDP leader has said, sounding cool on the possibility of forming a so-called "traffic light" coalition. Christian Lindner wants his business-friendly FDP to be kingmakers after Germany's national election on Sunday, at which the future course of Europe's largest economy is at stake after 16 years of steady, centre-right leadership under Angela Merkel. Opinion polls show a coalition of the centre-left Social Democrats (SPD) and Greens with the FDP, dubbed a traffic light alliance due to their party colours of red, green and yellow, is a real arithmetical possibility after the election.

A New York City restaurant released footage of an alleged assault, following an altercation over vaccine cards that involved a restaurant hostess and several patrons visiting from Texas.Security camera footage released by Carmines on September 20, shows three black women entering the restaurant after showing their vaccination cards. Shortly afterward, three men arrive to join the party, but only one shows a COVID-19 vaccine card. The women go into the restaurant with the man, then turn and go back outside.A lawyer for one of the women said the 24-year-old restaurant hostess used a racial slur, antagonized the guests by implying their vaccination cards were fake, and assaulted them, reports said.Police said they responded to the incident and the three Texas women were charged with assault and criminal mischief. The restaurant denies race was a factor in the altercation.In a statement released alongside the security footage, the restaurant owner Jeffrey Bank said the lawyer representing the three women had “falsely and grossly misrepresented their acts of wanton violence” and that his employees “work too hard to serve our guests, work too hard to comply with New York’s vaccination requirements, and still suffer too much from the attack for me to allow these false statements to stand.” Credit: Carmine’s Italian Restaurant via Storyful
