51 children born to surrogate mothers trapped in Ukraine due to pandemic restrictions
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.

The French, Spaniards, Czechs and Germans took off their masks to drink a cold beer on the terrace
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.
