A pensioner from Belgium has a less common harassment: for 9 years, pizza has been delivered to his door every day, but he does not know who orders them on his behalf. If you find it a pleasure to receive this culinary preparation so loved by some, well, find out that the old man ended up terrified and called the police.
For almost a decade, Jean van Landeghem has received tons of pizza. He is horrified only when he utters this word, and when he hears the delivery man's car and the doorbell coming, he is already beginning to tremble. "One is delivered to me every day, sometimes even at 2 at night. The peak was last year when one day I received no less than 10 deliveries. At one of them, the courier was holding 14 boxes ", said the pensioner.
The vendors, who work with dozens of restaurants, began to know the pensioner's address. "When I got here, I realized that I had at least five more delivery orders from different restaurants," said the pizza boy. Because he always refuses orders, the man does not have to pay for them, but the bill is charged to the delivery services.
The 65-year-old retiree, a former construction worker, does not know who and why he orders pizza and has made several complaints to the police. The Belgian journalists asked the law enforcement officers why they are not investigating the IP address from which the order is placed, but they only stated that they have started an investigation.
How to do it right and which solution is better to use.
We know a lot of dirty places in the house that we carefully clean. But often we forget about the most important thing - the refrigerator.
Viruses feel great at low temperatures. Studies of persistence of coronaviruses on inanimate surfaces and their inactivation with biocidal agents have shown that various types of coronaviruses can live in the refrigerator for up to 9 days. Coronavirus is assumed to be no less tenacious.
As a preventive measure, you need to wash the refrigerator at least once a month. Now is the time to do it. You will need:
- Cleaning agent. Household cleaning solutions are also quite effective, if exposed to the surface for at least 1 minute. In extreme cases, you can wash the shelves of the refrigerator with soap or wipe with ethyl alcohol.
- Cloth or paper towels.
When everything is ready, proceed.
- Unplug the refrigerator and remove all products.
- Throw away all spoiled foods - they are an ideal habitat for harmful microbes.
- Remove all shelves and remove drawers and wash them in hot soapy water as you wash dishes. You can do this in the kitchen sink, if it is too small - in the bath.
- Likewise, thoroughly wash all dishes from the refrigerator in hot water, especially one that contains something stale.
- Use the cleaning agent to clean the refrigerator itself - the inner walls, the racks for the shelves, the door handle. Act, moving from top to bottom, so that the mud does not run down to already cleared places.
- Wipe the refrigerator with paper or cloth towels, then put the racks, shelves and drawers back.
- Return the products back with a thorough inspection to see if they are all fresh. Banks, bottles, containers and bags can be pre-wiped with an alcohol raster.
Repeat this procedure regularly every 30 days, and you can reduce the risk of catching the infection through food.
Belgian Llama’s immune system could be the key to treatment for the new coronavirus. Belgian researchers have found that her body can produce antibodies that could stop COVID-19. Scientists have already continued research into the fight against SARS and MERS, when US scientists discovered that the animal has developed immunity to both types of coronavirus.
He is four years old, lives on a farm in Belgium, has brown chocolate fur and could be the key to an effective drug for Sars-CoV-2 coronavirus. Researchers have recently discovered that antibodies in her blood can stop the virus. Other tests are now being done to see if they can be used in the future to help people with coronavirus.
Belgian Llama already contributed to research in the fight against coronavirus in 2016. At that time, scientists at the University of Ghent, the University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin, USA) and the National Institutes of Health in America examined two previous forms of the agent. pathogen - SARS-CoV-1 and MERS-CoV. They found that llama’s blood developed antibodies in a type of immunization therapy that successfully fought both forms.
The human body can produce only one type of antibody, while the blades produce two types. These antibodies are similar, but one of the types of antibodies produced by the slides are several times smaller.
"Llama’s antibodies are easy to handle," said Dr. Xavier Saelens, a molecular virology specialist at the University of Ghent.
Such protective equipment can make you dangerous to others.
Sometimes protective fabric masks are equipped with a special valve. In this case, the mask works like this - you inhale air through filters and exhale it through a one-way valve. Thus, warm air comes out from under the mask faster, it becomes easier to breathe, the mask is easier to wear, and glasses will not fog up.
We put on masks for two reasons. Firstly, we hope that they will protect us from COVID-19 (however, disputes are still underway regarding the effectiveness of masks). Secondly, more importantly, the mask does not allow us to infect others, if we are sick and do not suspect it.
The valve allows free passage of air as it exhales. This means that an infected person will spread particles of the virus around him as if he weren’t wearing any protection at all.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does not recommend using masks and respirators with valves to prevent infection with this disease.
Such protection can be worn in conditions of smog, dust and smoke - for example, at a construction site or factory where harmful particles are floating in the air. But the mask with the valve will not stop the spread of the virus.
