positive news: Hardly any nuisance at the asylum seeker center The end of the corona epidemic is in sight NOW

Because of the poor news that usually dominates NU.nl, the positive news is sometimes lost. That’s why we’re going to put together some positive and delighted messages on Saturday. This time: most municipalities with large centers for asylum seekers do little or no harm in this and according to the World Health Organization (WHO), the end of the corona pandemic is in sight.

Most municipalities with asylum seekers do not action any nuisance from asylum seekers

Most municipalities with a large center of asylum seekers have little or no nuisance. This appears in a tour of NU.nl together with the thirty municipalities and the biggest centers of asylum seekers.

People often worry that an asylum seeker center in their area will lead to more crime and nuisance. These concerns regularly lead to heated protests. But municipalities see little or no nuisance and crime related to asylum seeker centers in their neighborhoods.

The WHO director sees the end of the coronavirus epidemic

Ants have ‘doctors’ who heal injured congeners

Researchers have found out that African ants heal their injured relatives with a chemical they produce themselves. Wounded ants signal when they need help. Other ants together bring the wounded back to the nest to be treated there.

Chimpanzees make indirect use of this antibacterial substance by chewing on ants. Then they apply their saliva to the wounds of the youth. Since chimpanzees are closely related to humans, the discovery may also contribute to human medicine.

  • A father and a mother who both have their birthdays on September 10 had a baby on the same date. Vanildo and Kim from Heerjansdam in South Holland give the best birthday presents. Their son Shiloh was born healthy on the same day.
  • A retired nurse saved a baby’s life on a plane. Tamara Panzino was on a flight from Pittsburgh to Orlando when a baby on board stopped breathing. Thanks to the woman’s resolute intervention, the baby survived.
  • The bees in the British royal family now also know that Queen Elizabeth has died. True to tradition, beekeeper John Chapple personally told them the news this week.
