Hmm...I've seen him somewhere...
The week of May 11-15 is an important one for many European countries! Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Belgium, Austria and the Czech Republic are among the first to start the "great relaxation" of the restrictive measures imposed by COVID-19. Even if the rules imposed by the authorities are simple, no one respected the social distance and did not keep his mask on when he reached the terraces.
WHO experts and local authorities have imposed four simple rules of countries trying to return to normal:
1. keep a social distance of 1.5 meters;
2. to impose frequent hand washing;
3. to impose the wearing of protective masks in public spaces;
4. to do everything possible to prevent social overcrowding.
None of these rules have been followed since Monday in the main European countries.
The banks of the Seine were flooded by thousands of Parisians eager to socialize after being isolated for more than 50 days. The beautiful weather erased with the sponge from the collective memory the devastating balance caused by COVID-19: 178,000 sick and 27,000 dead. But they were not the only Europeans to "relax" over a beer.
In Prague, Czech Republic, thousands of locals took advantage of the beautiful weather and drank huge amounts of beer right on the sidewalks. However, only 8,200 contaminations and 260 deaths were recorded in the Czech Republic, due to prompt action by the authorities.
The Belgians also forgot about masks for months, but they respected social distance. They drank their beers in the parks, because the terraces and bars are still closed. Belgium recorded 54,000 illnesses and 8,800 deaths.
The terraces were also opened in Switzerland on Monday, after the authorities announced the balance of the two months of nightmare: 30,000 contaminations and 1,800 deaths.
The terraces and promenades in Madrid, Barcelona and Tarragona were stormed and people drank cold beer forgetting that they are not allowed to gather in groups of 10 people and must wear masks.
After recording a record balance of 270,000 contaminations and over 27,000 deaths, Spain's population of 47 million seems to ignore the recommendations of the government led by Pedro Sanchez, which recommends caution. “The temptation of a cold beer is too great and no one thinks about the consequences ".
The Austrians were more cautious than their German neighbors and have not yet opened the terraces and bars, preferring to drink beer in the parks at the appropriate distance. In the north-eastern state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, the restaurants opened on Saturday, but only two people sat at the tables and drank beer in a mug with surgical gloves in their hands.
The Slovenian government has announced the end of the new coronavirus pandemic in the country, with the news being the first country in the European Union. Slovenian authorities have confirmed less than seven contaminations a day in the past two weeks.
People coming to Slovenia from other EU member states are no longer required to be isolated for at least seven days, as they have been since early April, the government said in a statement on Thursday. Slovenia, a country with 2 million inhabitants bordering Italy, Croatia and Austria, has a total of 1,500 infections and 103 deaths from COVID-19, with few new contaminations in recent days.
Slovenia, a country of two million people, has reported 1,464 infections with the new coronavirus and 103 deaths from covid-19. "Slovenia has calmed the pandemic in two months. Today, Slovenia has the best epidemiological homage in Europe, "Prime Minister Janez Jansa announced in Parliament on Thursday.
Some restrictions will remain, such as banning public gatherings, wearing a mask and complying with social distancing rules. Earlier this week, the Slovenian government announced the lifting of most restrictions starting next week, including the reopening of shopping malls and hotels with less than 30 beds.
A number of 51 babies born to surrogate mothers are stranded in a hotel on the outskirts of Kiev due to restrictions on the new coronavirus, which prevents parents in the United States, Europe and other regions from taking them.
Ukraine, a country where the surrogate mother system is legal, banned foreigners from entering the country in March, and most parents saw their newborns only in pictures and video calls with the clinic.
Parents come from all over the world, including the United States, China, the United Kingdom, Sweden and Ireland. The parents of 16 children were able to come to Ukraine during this period. "Children receive food, enough employees take care of them, but there is no substitute for parental care," said Denis Herman, a lawyer for BioTexCom. "We try to send parents photos of the children, we try to do video conferences, but we can't replace communication through direct contact," he added.
The surrogate mother (or borrowed mother) is a woman who accepts to an agreement to become pregnant with the goal of giving birth to a child who will be raised by another family or person as their own son. The embryo, respectively the fetus, which is carried in the womb by the surrogate mother may be a biological son or it may be the egg previously fertilized belonging to another woman. In the second case, the surrogate mother has no genetic connection with the child she is carrying.
Horror movies do not lose their popularity. Everyone wants to test themselves and understand what chilling invention it will not be embarrassing to scream from fear. During this times, Bemorepanda were offered a rich palette of horror movies, and we, in order from worst to best, have chosen the best ones.
The story of a novice sadist and a mysterious prostitute is based on the novel by Ryu Murakami, but it will be interesting to watch for those who read the book and those who did not.
The modest and pious old maid took an ax and hacked her father and mother. The whole point is that no one could prove Borden's guilt, the crime was conceived to glory, and after that the girl calmly lived a long life free. The true killer of her parents was never found. The creepy and very detailed “Revenge of Lizzy Borden” slowly leads us to a bloody denouement, making the circumstances of Lizzy’s life increasingly unbearable. And in order to completely torment the viewer, a perverse love line connected with the heroine Kristen Stewart was added to the movie.
Claustrophobic horror story about the flood and cannibal crocodiles in the basement of an apartment building by director Alexander Azh, the author of such thrillers as “Piranha 3D”. Nothing new is to be expected here, all within the framework of the genre, but due to special effects and the main character in the person of Kaya Scodelario, the movie at some point becomes very exciting. Although it’s clear that the “Trap” is the ten-great-granddaughter of the legendary “Jaws”.
According to the scientist, the aroma of this plant was to make people happy. But something went wrong. Deprived of the ability to reproduce, a smart flower came up with an unusually effective way to fight for existence. Namely: learned to hypnotize and subjugate people. Those who get pollen in their nose become capable of anything to protect their beloved ones.Filmed all this succinctly, but painfully anxious.
Annabelle comes home
As for Annabelle, the sinister and demonic doll continues to do all kinds of atrocities, this time with the wrong hands. She returned and is ready to scare you.
Ready or not
Out of fear of meeting their parents, the creators of this tape pulled a hilarious, but extremely bloody plot. For one “happy” bride, her fiancé’s relatives are chasing after a Victorian mansion to kill her with something big and sharp.
It: Chapter II
“It 2” came out no less successful than the first film - in some countries , in general, its fees were higher. It became a hit, although it was not based on Stephen King’s novel, and numerous reviews of the movie signaled that it’s not scary! But what can I say, if even some iconic figures of author's cinema have pecked at the bait of clown Pennywise?
Once, Stephen King himself did not dare to publish this novel, considering it too scary. But in the end, both the book and its first movie adaptation became classics. The new version of the misadventures of an individual family in the house near the highway is slightly distracted from the original plot in order to throw a little more surprises to the viewer. But at the heart of everything is the same - the fear of losing a loved one and the desperate hope of returning him at all costs, if something terrible still happened.
It’s not very clear whether it really was necessary to write a continuation of the magnificent “Radiance,” but King’s novel was doomed to become a bestseller in advance. It would be wrong to not shoot a continuation movie on it, denying yourself the pleasure of placing numerous references to Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece there. As a result, we got Ewan McGregor, a mysterious sect, a blood-filled hotel and a girl who must be saved.
Everything is accurate and beautiful, before the filming, the director was not too lazy to study the ancient rites and rituals of the Vikings. And, probably, after this movie it is worth recognizing that Aster is a new figure in the horror genre. In the "Solstice" one can feel the maturity, depth and - snobbery of an overseas superpower in front of the dense Old World.
These simple rules will help you stay healthy at your workplace during the coronavirus.
- Keep the social distance.
When you walk fast, run, ride a bicycle, it can increase to 4–20 meters.
If you keep such a distance with others, the smallest droplets of saliva that will not reach you when talking, coughing, breathing will cause another, possibly infected person. And you, in turn, do not share your own.
2. Try changing your work schedule.
Your task is to make it possible to get to work and leave it before or after rush hour. In this case, you don’t have to jostle in crowded public transport or walk along crowded streets where it is difficult to maintain distance.
Talk to your boss: maybe you will meet and shift your working hours.
3. Use less public transport
If possible, get to the place of work by your car or bike or walk. Naturally, at a safe distance from others.
And try not to use elevators. Even if the cab comes empty, you don’t know who was riding it 10 seconds before you. The virus can still remain in the air.
4. Wear a mask on the way to work
On the street, if you are absolutely healthy, and there are few people around, you can walk without it. But only if the authorities of your region do not require otherwise.
5. Wear a mask in the workplace
You need to wear it all day for your safety.
At the same time, you need to wear a mask correctly. Here's what the WHO recommends:
- Do not touch the mask with your hands after putting it on. If you still touch, wash your hands with soap or treat with an antiseptic gel.
- As soon as the mask becomes wet from breathing, replace it with a new one. Usually you have to do this every two hours.
- Only remove the mask by the mounts. In no case do not touch the part that is adjacent to the face. After this, the disposable medical mask should be immediately discarded, the reusable - sent to the wash.
6. Disinfect hands
The primary transmission route for coronaviruses is via airborne droplets. But there is a risk of contracting by the contact way: first, touch the surface on which the coronavirus donkeys, and then touch the mucous membrane of the nose, mouth, or eyes.
Therefore, it is extremely important to wash your hands regularly during a pandemic. Best of all - with warm water and soap, at least 20 seconds. If there is no access to water, you can treat your hands with an antiseptic or alcohol wipes. Make sure that the alcohol in these products was at least 70%.
