*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- USA, China, Italy, Russia, Brazil, Iran, South Korea, etc., are Nowadays among those Countries on which Most Establishment's Medias usually Point an Accusing Finger, concerning the Deadly Virus' reportedly Worse Impact, even if Often they do that quite Vaguely. On the Contrary, a lot of Other Countries are either Presented, regularly, as more or less Ordinary cases, if they are not Even Ommitted from being mentioned at all...

But the Reality of Facts is completely Different ! Particularly if one takes into account the, effectively, Worse Impact of the Virus : i.e. Deaths, and the most Accurate, Fair and Meaningful way to Measure it : i.e. in Proportion to Each Country's Population.

=> Then, all out of a Sudden, various "Surprises" pop-up, Both in Absolute and in Relative terms, (i.e. in Comparison with Other Counties) !

- F.ex.: - Which Country has the Worst Virus' Death Rate in the World ?

Guessing by the main Medias-induced Impressions, one would say, most probably : - The USA, or Italy, may be (soon) Russia or Brazil, etc.

>>> In Fact, it's Nobody among them ! Not Even Any Other Country among those which are Usually Citted by those Medias.

=>  On the Contrary, it's someone that Nobody would guess, a priori : ...Belgium ! The main EU Capital, indeed, currently, Figures at the 1st Place in the whole World for the Most Numerous Deaths by the Virus, in Proportion to its Population, with about 800 Victims per 1 Million, (Followed, in Big Distance, by Spain, with about 600) !

Italy comes Only Afterwards (i.e. 3rd), with about 530 Victims per Million, (almost Equal to the UK, which is 4rth).

>>> As for USA, Despite some False Appearances, it still stands, in Fact, Far Away : just at the ...9th Place, with 280 Victims (i.e. Almost the Half of Italy !) per 1 Million of Population, (situated Between Ireland : 321, and Switzerland : 222)...     

Brazil, (for which Establishment's Medias recently Claimed that it would be so Bad, that it Risked to reach, soon, the 3rd Place in the World, close to Russia),  in Fact, (with Only 85 Victims per Million), is situated at the ... 18th (EIGHTEENTH) Place !

It's Immediately Followed by Austria (with 71 Victims per Million), and is, still, Much Better than ...Germany, which is Notoriously considered to be an Exceptionaly "Good Case" in Europe, particularly by having (with just 97 Victims per million) far Less Deaths than All Other Big EU Countries, ...

Iran too, Notoriously cited as Exceptionaly Hardly Hit by the Deadly Virus, in Fact, stands Near Brazil, even slightly Better, at the 17th Place, (with 87 Deaths per Million), i.e. Also ByPassing Germany, (Comp. Supra).

And Russia, often Cited Recently as having Become a very "Bad" case, (Comp. Supra) ?

UnExpectedly, Russia still Stands at the ...44th Place, with Only 19 Deaths per Million, situated Between Lithuania (21)  and Belarus (18), Not Far away from Greece, which is Considered to be a Fairly Medium/Good case, (coming at the 49th Place, with Only 15 Deaths per Million).

As for South Korea, (which Twice Sky-Rocketed in Medias' News Headlines as a Top "Hot-Spot" of this Virus' Crisis), it's Placed Only ...75th, (with Only 5 Victims per Million).

+ To Complete this "Reality Test", even China, (Widely Known as the Origin of that Virus), Now stands at the ...93rd Place, (with Only 3 Victims per Million) !

--------------------------------------------------

Last, but Not Least, Even in Absolute terms, the EU (with the UK) has, still Nowadays, much More People Killed by that Virus (about 160.000) than the USA (just about 92.000)... And, also the Wider Europe, in general, (i.e. the EU Together with Other Eastern European Countries and Russia, etc), has about 168.000 People Killed, Compared to just about 124.500 in Americas, (i.e. USA + Canada + Latin America).

In other words, the European People, after having been, Earlier, Scandalously Abandoned to Massive Infections by imported Virus, withOut Any Timely Protection, (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/deadlyvirusheadstoeucore.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/virusriskbutnoeuprotection.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/delaytoprotecteupeoplefromvirus.html, etc), Still Remain, Today, the "EpiCenter" of the World, in terms of Tragic Losses of Human Lives !

So that it does'Nt Serve Anything to Vainly and Misleadingly, Too Often Attempt to Blame ...Xi's China, Trump's USA, Bolsonaro's Brasil, and/or Putin's Russia, (etc), as Establishment Medias' Too Easy "Scape-Goats",  in order to so Clumsily try to Hide some Pseudo-"Europeans"' Responsibilities, and/or the Obvious Need to Urgently Act, at last, Efficiently in order to Save the Threatened Lives of many innocent European People...

    An "Eugenic" loophole Amendment, which might expose to Dangers reminiscent of "3rd Reich's" notorious Genetic Abuses, hidden at the last minute inside an otherwise Good, larger Health policy Package scheduled to be voted on Thursday, was strongly denounced by a coalition of MEPs from various Political Groups and Countries, in a Press Conference held this afternoon at EU Parliament in Strasbourg.

    Mainly calling to "Select Human Embryos", via "Genetic Counselling" and "pre-implantation" Techniques including "Genetic Tests", in order to "Eradicate Hereditary rare Diseases", it might open ways to Dangerous Practices in Future, they denounced in substance.

    But they also made it clear that a much larger Report inside which this Controversial Amendment "No 15" was added in dubious circumstances, officialy destinated to struggle against "Rare Diseases", and drafted by Professor Antonios Trakatellis, was otherwise "an Excellent Report", aiming at a "completely Uncontroversial target" of Health policy on which "all MEPs and Experts are united, believing that Europe should act" to protect People's Health (See "EuroFora"'s earlier News).

    The controversy came at a particularly delicate moment for the EU in relation to Citizens, at the eve of June 2009 EU Elections, and shortly before Ireland re-votes for "Lisbon Treaty"..    

- Denouncing risks of "an Eugenic demand, very similar to what we had during the 3rd Reich in Germany, but now coming from some Scientisists themselves", German ChristianDemocrat/EPP MEP Dr. Peter Liese stressed that critical MEPs were against "Eugenic" engineering with "Selection of Human Embryos", and anything which might ultimately lead up to to a "Selection of Human Race". It doesn't help to "eradicate" Human Lives, he added.


    Several Experts and NGOs expressed "Deep Concern", as f;ex. DR M.C. Cornel of the "European Society of Human Genetics", which stressed, on this occasion, that "the importance of Non-Directiveness in Reproductive issues is a Central characteristic of Human Genetics, after the Atrocities committed in the name of Genetics in the first half or the 20th Century".

     - "This is completely Unacceptable", stressed Italian Liberal MEP Vittorio Prodi, on the Controversial Amendment, also because pushes to "eliminate early Human Life", as he noted.

     - "This opens a Dangerous Road, rather a Motorway", denounced Danish MEP Mrs Margrette Auken, from the "Greens", observing that various similar attempts were made in the Past "not only in Germany, but also in several other Countries, "even at the 1970ies", "f.ex. on forced Sterilisation of Roma" People, and other criticisable situations f.ex. in the UK, in Sweden, etc. as she said.

    + Other NGOs, as f.ex. "LebenHilfe" from Berlin, added that, among various other Risks, could also be that, by exploiting the pre-implantation Genetic Diagnostics and the Selection of "healthy" Embryos, some may "propagate" several "Eugenic" aims, starting f.ex. by pushing to eradicate Human Livies which might "Cost too much" to preserve, ultimately exposing to dangers reminiscent of the "3rd Reich"'s atrocious abuses.

    In consequence, ChristianDemocrats/EPP and "Green" MEPs "decided by Majority to vote against" this Controversial Amendment, anounced to Journalists the 5 MEPs who participated in the Press Conference, representing a wide spectrum, from Liberals to "Greens" and ChristianDemocrats, and from Hungary, Italy, Germany and Danemark up to Ireland (Gay Mitchell), etc.
----------------------------------
    Hungarian ChristianDemocrat MEP Laszlo Surjan said "that it was "Suddenly, at the End of the Procedure" in Committee, that "appeared this (Controversial) Amendment, which has nothing to do" with the main purpose of the Report, on which all agreed.

    He denounced an "Unhonest" move, and called to "avoid this kind of unacceptable situations". Nobody should "Select People", Surjan stressed.

    - "We (MEPs) had No Chance to Discuss" this last-minute Amendment earlier added at a Committee's level, said German MEP Peter Liese

    Speaking to "EuroFora", Dr. Liese, the Spokesman of the ChristianDemocrat/EPP Group in EU Parliament, said that MEPs didn't oppose other references of the Report f.ex. on "Genetic Tests", because they were "no proposals" to impose them, while, on the contrary, there was "a Problem" if anyone attempted to "impose" f.ex. this or that Genetic Technique and "Genetic Counselling", etc. to the People on human reproduction.
-------------
The precise Text :
-----------------
    Controversial parts of Amendment No 15 ask mainly "to lead finally to the Eradication" of "Hereditary" "rare diseases", "through Genetic Counselling .., and ..pre-Implantation Selection of healthy Embryos".

    But  EU Rapporteur Professor Trakatellis, said to "EuroFora" that fears should be alleviated by Guarantees that all this should be done only "where appropriate", when it's "not contrary to existing National Law", and "always on a Voluntary basis", according to other Parts of the Amendment.

    He stressed that the main aim was to allow "a free and informed choice of persons involved", without imposing them anything :  - "It's not an obligatory, but advisary" text, he said.

    To make that point clear, he was ready, in agreement with many MEPs, to eventually drop at least that part of the controversial Amendment which initially called for "efforts to ..lead finally to the Eradication of those rare diseases" "which are Hereditary".

    But, until late Wednesday evening, reportedly together with many other MEPs, he stood by all the rest of the controversial Amendment, (fex. on the "Genetic Counselling" and the "pre-implantation Selection of healthy Embryos"), so that critical MEPs, going from ChristianDemocrats as Dr. Liese, to "Greens" or "Ind/Dem", observed to "EuroFora" that "this was not enough" to close the dangerous loophole.

    Particularly since, as Professor Trakatellis noted himself, "this is already allowed to the U.K.", and "other National Legislations would probably follow, sooner or later" in a similar direction. As for a general call to "Eradicate Hereditary rare Diseases", this "should happen, at any case, in practice, de facto", to protect public Health.

    On the contrary, "our goal should be to help patients suffering from rare diseases, not to eradicate the patients. In case of genetic disease risk, the decision should not be guided by scenarios" made by politicians. "Perents who may decide to accept a child, even if handicapped or with genetic disease, must be respected and supported with solidarity", critical MEPs stated.

    - "Any Pressure" to "a patient or couple (who "should be able to make an informed choice consistent with their own values"),"from health Professionals, Public Health Policies or Governemental Institutions, or Society at large, should be avoided", stresses the "European Society for Human Genetics".

----------------------------------

Each MEP's vote will be registered !

-----------------------------------   

The Socialist Group requested a "Split vote" on the Amendment 15, first without, and afterwards with the words "lead finally to the Eradication" etc.


    But the first "split vote" leaves intact all the other parts of the Controversial Amendment, (i.e. "Genetic Counselling", "Selection of healthy Embryos", etc).

    That's why, 3 Groups of MEPs : ChristianDemocrats/EPP, "Greens/EFA", and "Ind/Dem", have asked for "Roll Call Votes", on everything regarding the Controversial Amendment No 15, and on the final outcome of the resulting Report as amended, which will register all the individual positions to be taken by each MEP.   

Something which will obviously make each MEP think twice before voting for one or another choice, to be sure that he/she will make the right choice in front of EU Citizens, particularly at these pre-Election times...


    Crucial Votes were scheduled between 12 Noon and 1 p.m. local Strasbourg time, in the middle of a long series of various other Reports, and after a long Public Debate on the larger Health policy package, from 9 to 11.50 am.

    The specific Report inside which was hidden the controversial Amendment is due to be debated between 11 and 12 am.

    So that more last-minute Surprises may not be excluded a priori...

    Particularly at the present Historic moment, when even the Institutional Future of the EU depends on the result of a second Referendum on "Lisbon Treaty", later this year, in ...Ireland, a mainly Catholic country, where People are particularly sensitive in such kind of socio-cultural and values issues...
