LONDON (REUTERS) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson faced a growing storm on Tuesday (July 7) after saying some care homes didn't follow procedures to stem the spread of Covid-19 deaths, sparking an accusation that he was trying to rewrite history. Britain has one of the highest death tolls in the world from Covid-19, at more than 44,000, with around 20,000 dying in care homes, according to government statistics. While the government has been heavily criticised by opposition politicians and some medics over the slow delivery of protective clothing and testing in care homes, Mr Johnson appeared to suggest blame for the outbreaks lay with the care homes themselves. "We discovered too many care homes didn't really follow the procedures in the way that they could have, but we're learning lessons," Mr Johnson said on Monday. Mr Mark Adams, chief executive of charity Community Integrated Care, said he was "unbelievably disappointed" by Mr Johnson's comments, slamming them as clumsy and cowardly, adding that they represented a dystopian rewriting of history. "To get a throwaway comment almost glibly blaming the social care system, and not holding your hands up for starting too late, doing the wrong things, making mistake after mistake, it is just frankly unacceptable," he told BBC radio. "If this is genuinely his view, I think we're almost entering a Kafkaesque alternative reality." A Reuters Special Report detailed how the government's focus on preventing emergency wards from being overwhelmed left care home residents and staff exposed to Covid-19. To free up hospital beds, many patients were discharged into homes for the elderly and vulnerable, many without being tested for the coronavirus. Following his comments, a spokesman for Mr Johnson said:"Throughout this crisis, care homes have done a brilliant job under very difficult circumstances. "The PM was pointing out that nobody knew what the correct procedures were because the extent of asymptomatic transmission was not known at the time." Related Stories:

BARCELONA (REUTERS) - From sexual violence in displacement camps to extra farm work and greater risk of illness, women shoulder a bigger burden from worsening extreme weather and other climate pressures pushing people to move for survival, a global aid group said on Tuesday (July 7). Scientists expect forced displacement to be one of the most common and damaging effects on vulnerable people if global warming is not limited to an internationally agreed aim of 1.5 deg C, Care International noted in a new report. "This report shows us that climate change exacerbates existing gender inequalities, with women displaced on the front lines of its impacts bearing the heaviest consequences,"said Care secretary-general Sofia Sprechmann Sineiro. For example, women and girls uprooted by Cyclone Idai, which hit Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi in 2019, are still facing serious health threats due to poor access to basic services and sanitary products, the report said. And in Ethiopia, where about 200,000 people were forced from their homes last year by drought and floods, women living in overcrowded shelters face higher levels of sexual violence there and on longer, more frequent trips to fetch water and firewood. Mr Sven Harmeling, Care's global policy lead on climate change and resilience, said displacement linked to climate stresses was already "a harsh reality for millions of people today". If global warming continues at its current pace towards 3C or more above pre-industrial times, "the situation may irrevocably escalate and evict hundreds of millions more from their homes", he added. Climate change impacts are likely to strengthen and "unfold over the next couple of years, and not only in the distant future", he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation. Failure to prepare for them will lead to more suffering and people having to abandon their land, he said. Many places already are affected by multiple climate shocks and rising seas, making it harder for those displaced to return, he added. "(Climate extremes) may mean more men are leaving to try to find income elsewhere, and that puts additional burden on the women who stay back and have to try to earn (money) while taking care of the family," he said. MEANS TO ACT The report said governments and aid agencies needed to gather more data on how women and girls are affected by climate-linked displacement and migration so they can better understand and try to alleviate their situation. It also called for more women to lead efforts to respond to climate threats, including in their own communities. And it said more funding should be allocated to help women adapt to changing conditions on a hotter planet, such as by choosing resilient crops or being able to access micro-credit, so that fewer will be uprooted from their homes. In most countries, climate measures supported by public finance do not adequately prioritise women, Care noted, calling for at least 85 per cent of funding for adaptation projects to target gender equality as an explicit objective by 2023 at the latest. But some projects are making women a priority, it said. In two rural districts of India, Care worked with 4,500 tribal women in 50 villages whose rice harvests were falling as rains became erratic, water scarcer and soils less fertile. Over the past seven years, it helped them set up and run self-support groups that gave them greater confidence and financial skills to start addressing the problem. They also received seasonal and weekly weather forecasts so they could plan farming activities. The aid agency said agriculture production rose by a third, food insecurity declined and the number of days women had to work away from home to make ends meet more than halved. In Somali villages, women were given business training and organised into groups that pooled and gradually built up savings that were then used to offer loans to their members. The groups helped their communities ward off economic shocks and hunger during Somalia's 2016 drought, the report said. "Care's experience tells us that when women lead in crises, entire communities benefit, and more effective and sustainable solutions are found," said Ms Sprechmann Sineiro.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Monday that the US is considering banning TikTok over concerns of Chinese surveillance. Speaking to Fox News host Laura Ingraham, Pompeo warned that Americans should be wary of downloading the popular app unless they wanted their private data "in the hands of the Chinese Communist Party." TikTok is owned by Chinese company ByteDance, though it maintains that it is an international company that operates independently from the Chinese government. India banned TikTok last week, along with dozens over other Chinese apps, citing concerns about national security and privacy of user data. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Monday that the US is considering banning TikTok over concerns of Chinese surveillance. Speaking to Fox News host Laura Ingraham, Pompeo said that the Trump administration was "certainly" looking at banning the viral video app. "We are taking this very seriously and we are certainly looking at it," Pompeo said. "We have worked on this very issue for a long time, whether its the problem of having Huawei technology in your infrastructure — we've gone all over the world and we are making real progress getting that
