  1. I don’t understand who you think is copying your blog.
    Anyone has access to the Journal and the Diario ,which is presumably where people get their content from.
    If someone had blatantly copied your post they would have included the same date “typo” as you , vaccines administered from “December 2021” .

    • Thank you for pointing out the typo Karen – I have corrected that. The blog is followed by a number of competitive sources who are alerted when a news story appears here. They then try to find the source of that post, google translate it, and repost without any attempt at corrections, additions etc – everything you would expect from a blog. It is however a lot easier than taking some pride in the content.
