NEW ZEALAND: The export of live cows and other livestock was banned today.
Agriculture Minister Damien O’Connor said the country wanted to be the “most ethical producers of food.”

Denmark said today it would not be reviving AstraZeneca inoculations, citing fears over contested evidence that it causes blood clots in rare cases.
