The measures undertaken by various countries to put people under stringent lockdowns to stop the spread of the coronavirus have experienced an unforeseen and unique benefit. The outbreak has, at least in part, contributed to a noticeable drop in pollution and greenhouse gas emissions in some countries.


“Since the lockdown: Venice's canals have become crystal clear. Italy's coasts have dolphins coming nearer and nearer. Japan now has deer roaming free in the streets, and Thailand: the same with monkeys. China has record-breaking pollution cuts. The Earth has already begun showing signs of amazing things that are happening from the absence of human pollution. What if- and hear me out..- what if the entire human population used this as an opportunity to restart society on a greener, more environmentally conscious foot. What we're seeing in the span of a couple of days is amazing. A pipe dream.” Gina Mayer

The drastic measures enforced by China during the coronavirus outbreak have slashed deadly air pollution, potentially saving the lives of tens of thousands of people, a Stanford University researcher said.


Klopp said the pandemic could make companies and governments realize that other threats to humanity, including climate change, could be the most devastating and harmful.

"As we move to restart these economies, we need to use this moment to think about what we value," she said. "Do we want to go back to the status quo, or do we want to tackle these big structural problems and restructure our economy and reduce emissions and pollution?"


Now we must realize the harmful impacts we made to our planet are the deadliest one, we must understand that we have to stop pollution and finally start being friendly to our planet.

Is the pandemic virus a sign to stop humans actions against planet?

Let’s think about this one more time.

americans-in-circles-this-is-what-social-distance-in-new-york-parks-looks-like

This are new pictures from the favorite promenade areas of New Yorkers at the end of last week.  In order to avoid overcrowding in the parks and to help comply with the rules of social distance, the authorities drew circles in which no more than six people could enter.

The New York authorities extended the recommendation to stay at home to the citizens of this state until mid-June, given that here alone the balance of infections with the new coronavirus exceeded 350,000 months, May 18, and the death toll had reached 28,325.


 However, it did not stop New Yorkers from taking advantage of the beautiful weather to go for a walk.  To help enforce the rules of social distance, police drew several circles in areas preferred by city dwellers and numerous patrols were sent to the field to discourage the formation of groups of more than six people.

Police also handed out protective masks to those who did not have them, given that for several days there has been talk of the excessive zeal of the New York City authorities towards people caught not respecting the rules of social distance.


 The governor of New York relies on the common sense of the citizens to keep the spread of the new coronavirus under control.  "I can't tell you what will happen.  If people are smart, we will see increases in the number of diseases, but we will not see a peak, "said Andrew Como,.

why-do-some-healthy-young-people-die-from-coronavirus-the-specialists-have-two-explanations

Covid-19 "attacks" the most powerful of the elderly, but even young and apparently healthy people do not get rid of coronavirus.  The news about the death of some adolescents, young people without previously diagnosed health problems has shocked us in recent weeks.  Why do some healthy, young people die from the new coronavirus? The specialists have two explanations, which will be deepened by thorough research.


 It remains one of the biggest mysteries of the current Covid-19 pandemic.  In general, the disease causes severe complications to people past the age of 65 and those with certain conditions, such as cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure or obesity.  However, there were also casualties among young people without health problems, including among medical personnel. In some cases, after the death, certain conditions with which the victim had not been diagnosed, in other words, was not known to be sick.

The researchers are facing this huge challenge, to discover the cause of the strange behavior of the coronavirus.  Several theories have already been put forward. Some researchers believe that the amount of virus we are infected with is extremely important: we have been exposed directly and strongly, the complications can be serious.  "A person with a high viral load has more virus particles than a small virus," says virusologist Alison Sinclair of Sussex University.

 "We still do not know what the impact of viral load is on the symptoms of a person infected with Covid-19.  It will be important to find out if there is a link between large viral loads and serious cases, ”added Sinclair. 


 In addition, the first data from China suggest that viral load is higher in patients with a more severe form of the disease, as is the case with SARS and influenza.

But other researchers argue that the main explanation lies in genes.  Some of us are simply genetically predisposed to develop the most serious forms of Covid-19.  Virology expert Michael Skinner from Imperial College in London explained, quoted by the Guardian: "It is quite possible that some of us may have a genetic particularity that will make us react much worse when we are infected with coronavirus."


 "It may be a similar sensitivity of some people with Covid-19, and this makes them more acute due to serious side effects," Skinner added.


 An example of such sensitivity is given by the herpes simplex virus.  In some people, a genetic mutation that affects TLR3 cell receptors in the central nervous system makes them unable to react to the worst stroke of the virus, so they make a disease called herpex simplex encephalitis that can lead to seizures.

how-to-prepare-your-own-chlorine-disinfectant-recipe-at-home

Chlorine based disinfectant is one of the most powerful solutions that eliminates coronavirus from surfaces.  The recipe is very simple and you can try it right at home. Here's what you have to do!


If you want to prepare your own disinfectant with which to sanitize your home, you will need to be very careful about how you use chlorine.  Because it is a caustic substance, it should not be mixed with other solutions, but diluted only with water, in appropriate proportions. Here is the exact network and what you need to do!


 How to prepare your own chlorine disinfectant.  Recipe for home

 The American Center for Disease Control recommends disinfecting surfaces in our home - tiles, wall tiles, linoleum, door handles, etc. - using a chlorine solution with a concentration of 1:50, ie 20 ml of chlorine per liter of water.  This disinfectant, properly prepared, sanitizes surfaces and objects that we come into contact with daily, but does not affect our health. If you think this amount of chlorine is small, find out that it is actually more than enough for the complete elimination of coronavirus.


 The tools you need:


 You will need a spray container where you can keep the solution;

 A graduated container to make the necessary measurements;

 Household rubber gloves;

 A nose and mouth protection mask.  This way you will avoid inhaling chlorine vapors.  If you do not have a mask, you can use a scarf, a handkerchief, a handkerchief, any textile material that will prevent you from inhaling the vapors;

 Water;

Chlorine;


Recipe for daily use


 First of all, you must know that the disinfectant is prepared outdoors, or, if you do not live at ground house and do not have a yard, go to the balcony.  If you do not have a balcony, prepare the solution in a very well ventilated room, with the windows wide open. Chlorine releases extremely toxic vapors. To make a solution with a concentration of 1:50 you need 20 ml of chlorine in 1 liter of water.  Pour water into a basin, add chlorine, mix and use the solution for washing on the floor or for disinfecting other objects. The disinfectant can be used daily, and if it is more concentrated, it should be used once a few days.

 The chlorine-based disinfectant is prepared according to a very simple recipe, but we must pay close attention to the quantities of chlorine and water we use.  It is the most important aspect. If not, chlorine could seriously affect our health.

the-country-where-hundreds-of-thousands-of-people-have-not-heard-of-covid-19

Hundreds of thousands of people caught fighting in western Myanmar probably know nothing about COVID-19 after Internet access was blocked in the area, according to human rights organizations, quoted by CNN.


In June 2019, the government of Myanmar, led by Aung San Suu Kyi, cut off internet access in nine cities in the area for fear that it would be used to fuel clashes between the military and insurgents in Myanmar.


 In May, internet access returned to a municipality, but another eight, with a total population of about 800,000 people, are still deprived of this means of communication.

 Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International say the lack of the Internet threatens people's lives, not only because it prevents them from reporting possible human rights violations, but also because they do not have access to coronavirus pandemic information campaigns.


 "With an armed conflict between Myanmar's troops and the Arakan army in Rakhine State amid the pandemic, it is essential that civilians obtain the information they need to stay safe," said Linda Lakhdhir, Asia's legal adviser to Human Rights Watch.

 Six deaths and 292 COVID-19 infections were reported in Myanmar from more than 64,532 tests, according to the Myanmar Ministry of Health.

 Several cases have been confirmed in the northern cities of Maungdaw and Buthidaung in Rakhine State, where more than 100,000 Rohingya Muslims live in crowded camps.  Many fled military-launched operations against Rohingya insurgents in 2018. The UN has demanded that the Myanmar army be tried by an international tribunal for genocide and atrocities against Rohingya Muslims.  Rakhine Buddhists left homeless due to the fighting also live in the camps in the area.
