Some of the first people to check into quarantine hotels have had their first taste of freedom upon their release today after self-isolating for 11 nights. From last Monday, UK and Irish nationals returning to England from a "red list" country deemed at high risk for COVID-19 have had to check into quarantine hotels. Hotel "guests" have criticised the £1,750 fee for the stay , which is punishable by a fine of up to £10,000 or 10 years in prison if breached. The rule applies to people returning to Scotland from any destination. One couple, Wagner and Elaine Araujo, who were among the first people to be released from hotel quarantine, said the experience was "horrible" but they enjoyed spending quality time together.

Colin Seranina has been a fisherman for 25 years. The waters around Pilar on the Philippine island of Ponson once provided enough fish to feed his family of four kids with some extra to sell at the market. But the island is particularly susceptible to the changing climate, and the fisherfolk now often go home empty-handed after a day out on the sea. Times have become even harder since the coronavirus pandemic struck, because the large fish markets are closed. Instead, Seranina and other fisherfolk sell their leftover catch to their neighbors for a lot less money than they'd receive at the market. Communities like those in Pilar work with conservation NGO Rare to make sure they have food security into the future. They've established coastal protection areas to allow fish populations to recover and have set up savings clubs so fishing families have some cash to fall back on. Project goal: Protecting coastal regions and creating sustainable fisheries to secure food and … [Read more...] about Philippines: Facing COVID and the climate crisis

Papa John’s fans are in for a real treat, as the fast food chain is giving its customers half price off their order when they spend £20 or more. The deal, which is running until the 28th February 2021, was first shared to deals sharing forum hotukdeals.com . To get money off your Papa John's order, all you have to do is add £20 worth of food into your basket and the discount code "50OFF20P" will automatically be applied. The code can also be added to your order manually before checking out and paying. When you reach your basket page, an option above your order will appear saying “Got a promo code?
