Tuesday Newspapers: Biden Blame, Fully Vaxxed Quarantine, Cabin Boom About to End | New


There is a big story in the media on Tuesday.

Taliban fighters in Kabul.

The Finnish media was once again dominated by news from Kabul and Washington on Tuesday, as the United States hands Afghanistan over to the Taliban and flees the country.

President of the United States overnight Joe biden insisted (siirryt toiseen palveluun) in a televised address that his decision was the right one and that no further action could have prevented scenes of desperate Afghans hang on to planes (siirryt toiseen palveluun) as they evacuated the lucky few.

His speech was met with some skepticism by Iltalehti (siirryt toiseen palveluun), which has an opinion piece titled “Responsibility for Afghanistan’s downfall rests with Biden, though maybe it shouldn’t.”

The newspaper points out that Donald trump was the one who struck a deal with the Taliban and continued to withdraw even as the Taliban forces broke his terms.

Helsingin Sanomat has an op-ed noting that the abandonment of the Afghans is also a defeat for Finland, after the country has devoted twenty years and nearly a billion euros to supporting Western efforts in the country.

The article concludes that Finland has offered to evacuate a small minority of those who have helped the Finns over the past two decades and who are now at risk of retaliation from Taliban forces.

“I hope at least that this promise will be kept”, writes HS. (siirryt toiseen palveluun)

Fully vaccinated yet must quarantine

The more infectious Delta strain of Covid-19 has raised concern among health authorities. Ilkka-Pohjalainen reports that in Vaasa, vaccinated people still need to be quarantined after exposure.

This despite THL’s recommendation that fully vaccinated people no longer need to self-quarantine after exposure.

“Positive cases have also been reported in people who received both doses. The Delta variant spreads as easily as chickenpox, so there will be a lot of infections regardless,” said Vaasa’s chief medical officer. Heikki Kaukoranta said IP.

With current dose protection declining six months after administration, Finland could see third doses introduced as early as 2022, the newspaper added.

The cottage sales boom is coming to an end

The hottest summer in a hundred years also saw a scorching holiday accommodation market, Ilta-Sanomat (siirryt toiseen palveluun) (IS), but now he is expected to calm down.

This summer saw a boom in vacation home purchases and a 20% surge in prices.

With a large majority of cottage owners over the age of 60, it remains to be seen whether the younger generations will also be interested in escaping city life to keep the holiday housing market alive, the Hypo credit institution economist Juhana brotherus said to the newspaper.
