EMA has said AstraZeneca vaccination is 'good'

Also, some protests have emerged in some countries over the covid-19 restrictions in certain areas. Dutch citizens have gone to court after the government issued a night curfew to limit the spread. In the capital, Amsterdam, security forces have been using water cannons and tear gas to dispel the crowds at the city Square.
