    IN THE PRESS – Tuesday, March 16, 2021: Papers are largely critical of the decision from major European countries to temporarily suspend use of the AstraZeneca vaccine. French paper Libération wonders if it’s an example of “abundance of caution” being taken too far, or if it’s a form of “collective psychosis”. We also look Australia’s historic March 4 Justice against gender violence march which has prompted a reaction from papers, but not from the country’s prime minister. Plus, concern in Brazil over the disappearance of the country’s beloved vaccination mascot, “Droplet Joe”.
