You can dance too and, if you want, hold a drink at the same time.It’s hard not to feel a little uneasy in the venue’s soupy humidity. But in a city where they’ve barely had to worry about the coronavirus for the past 10 months, it’s an incredible privilege to be standing here, drink in hand, dancing with all the coordination of an astronaut who’s just returned to Earth.

Coronavirus live news: Auckland finishes week of lockdown, England prepares to reopen schools
France reports 23,306 new cases as Pas-de-Calais locked down, US Senate passes $1.9tn pandemic economic relief plan, arrests during Vienna protestsSee all our coronavirus coverage 1.49am GMT The Dalai Lama, the 85-year-old Tibetan spiritual leader, was administered the first shot of the coronavirus vaccine on Saturday at a hospital in the north Indian hill town of Dharmsala, Associated Press has reported.After receiving the injection, he urged people to come forward, be brave and get vaccinated. “In order to prevent some serious problems, this injection is very, very helpful,” he said.Dr. G.D. Gupta of Zonal Hospital, where the shot was administered, told reporters that the Dalai Lama was observed for 30 minutes afterward. “He offered to come to the hospital like a common man to get himself vaccinated,” he said.Ten other people who live in the Dalai Lama’s residence were also vaccinated, Gupta said. All eleven received the Covishield vaccine, which was developed by Oxford University and UK-based drugmaker AstraZeneca, and manufactured by the Serum Institute of India.The Dalai Lama made Dharmsala his headquarters in 1959, fleeing Tibet after a failed uprising against Chinese rule.

The country, which has the second-highest caseload in the world behind the US, rolled out its vaccination drive in January, starting with health care and front-line workers.
