Also, not sure if you have seen Vietnam recently...does not look open or sane.
Notice how the refugees are all women and children! This is what real refugees look like.This vid is refugees from Kyrgyzstan desperately trying to cross Uzbek border after yet another flare up in Osh in 2010.
Good point.TBF one thing that the last 18 months has taught us is to dismiss videos and seemingly 'on the ground' accounts of things in far off countries.
I have no idea how it is in Vietnam, i saw that video of the kids in hazmats (or whatever they're called) suits, i really would discount that. It surely isn't the norm out there. Whether its some psy-op designated to whip up fear in the West, or Vietnam's way of doing a little tap-dance for Elites (saying "hey look, we're falling into line here, look at the measures we're taking!"), who knows.
Ultimately, in today's smoke and mirrors world, we should be wary about drawing any conclusions on these matters without first hand accounts from at least a somewhat credible source
The fact he can charge this for a service which is simple means we can learn something from him. Don't hate on the guy but try to take lessons from his marketing and branding skills because you are missing the point of the added value he brings. Otherwise no one would be willing to pay these sums.Seriously, he charges something like 20K for stuff one could DIY using online translator tool.

'From quarantine, to curfew and border measures, the Committee of Experts announces new anti-covid measures
30 August, 2021 12:09COMMITTEE
Starting from September 1, our country will apply new anti-covid measures, which have been strengthened due to the increase in cases of infections.
The Technical Committee of Experts decided to change the curfew, which will take effect from 23:00 to 06:00. Also, new measures will be applied at the border crossings of Albania, where citizens must meet 3 conditions.
Thus, whoever enters the border of the Albanian territory must have a vaccination passport, PCR test within 72 hours or covid test, 6 months after recovery. The Technical Committee further decided to make vaccination mandatory for doctors, students and teachers.
"The Technical Committee has closely followed the dynamics of COVID-19 in Albania, in the Region and in the World. What has been noticed is that the indicators in Albania during this week have shown a deteriorating tendency. I have the words for the daily cases and the biweekly incidence. Analyzing in more depth the causes leading to this deterioration, the technical committee has decided on several measures. Starting September 1, curfew will run from 11pm to 6pm. Citizens who entered the Republic of Albania must present three conditions, to present the vaccination certificate. Have a PCR test within 72 hours, or have a valid infection test for up to 6 months. Children up to 6 years old are not subject to such rules.
Resident citizens who do not have these three rules must be placed in a 10-day quarantine. The Technical Committee has made vaccination mandatory for white-collar workers, teachers and students. An exception will be made for those who have a medical indication for not making the vaccine, which will be assessed responsibly.
For students, we call for vaccination in September, to facilitate the progress of the health process. Traveling passengers will be allowed to enter the Airports, excluding their relatives. They must be equipped with masks. The order for the use of masks in closed premises remains in force, and in those places where physical distancing is not provided ", said Rkacolli.'
Albania to Tighten Pandemic Restrictions Starting September 1

Link to confirm:

Beginning September 1, curfew will be extended, starting at 11:00pm. and lasting until 6am. Anyone entering Albania will need to show...exit.al
It's too bad, but I guess it is better that it is taking place now before anyone bought a plane ticket. I'm divided on whether or not I'll still check it out next month. Might still be worth a look (best of a bad bunch?), but I'm not sure.
For those with a few quid to spare, this is looking good (the very far north of the country, in case you were wondering):
