To fight coronavirus, Panama si separating men from women. Transgenders are concerned
In Panama, against the backdrop of the pandemic of the new SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, men and women were barred from leaving their homes on the same day. This new measure to further limit social contacts in the country entered into force on Wednesday, April 1.
He said that this decision was caused by the fact that people systematically violated the regime of self-isolation - over the past week, 2,000 people were detained in the country for non-compliance with the regime.
The President of Panama, Laurentino Cortiso, introduced these standards on March 25 for an indefinite period. In accordance with them, the local citizens of the country are allotted two hours daily from 6.30 to 19.30 for the purchase of vital goods. At what particular hours citizens can go to the store depends on the last digit in their passport number.
Transgenders in Panama are Concerned
The rules introduced on March 25 remain in force, but in addition, women and men are no longer allowed to leave home on the same day. Women can only go shopping on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and men on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. On Sunday, leaving the house is prohibited. Panamanian advocates for transgender rights fear that people with a different gender than the one indicated in the passport may face problems as a result.
In Panama, according to the latest data, 1181 cases of infection with coronavirus were recorded, including 30 deaths. Panama is one of the Latin American countries most affected by the coronavirus epidemic.
Despite the fact that the Latin American coronavirus pandemic was the last to be affected, authorities in the countries of the South American continent are preparing for the worst.
“We need to be prepared for the worst case scenario,” BBC quotes Dr. Harbos Barbosa, head of the Pan American Health Organization. - We can’t count on any advantages like climate or demographic situation. “We need to monitor what is happening in other countries, take into account weaknesses, take into account what actions work, and resort to them.”
The advantage of the demographic situation can be considered a fairly young average age of Latin Americans: in Brazil it is 30 years old, in Colombia - 27.4, and in Italy, for comparison, 44 years. In addition, overall population density in South America is not as high as in Europe. However, in large cities such as Rio da Janeiro and São Paulo, on the contrary, it is very high. In addition, do not forget about the inhabitants of urban slums, where people live for 12 people in one room, which is why the self-isolation regime loses all meaning.
COVID-19 has stopped many people's businesses by quarantining many parts of the world. In addition to losses due to business interruptions, businessmen cannot pay rent and pay salaries to their employees, because they have nothing. A leather goods store recently opened its doors for the first time in two months since the introduction of a nationwide quarantine, and what the owner saw did not make him happy.
As if the quarantine was not enough blow to the business, the owner of this store in Malaysia opened his doors 2 months later and found a sad surprise.
A Facebook user named Nex Nezeum recently shared several photos of various leather goods covered in insane amounts of mold.
Shoes, bags, wallets, belts, and even furniture and floor coverings were moldy - a truly depressing sight for a store owner.
Back in March, Malaysia decided to introduce quarantine in its country in response to the COVID-19 pandemic
Minor businesses like Nex's store have been closed until further notice.
But on May 10 - 53 days after the start of quarantine - the country relaxed quarantine conditions and allowed some businesses to reopen their doors.
When Nex entered his store, he saw that everything from shoes and bags to furniture and flooring was covered with mildew colonies.
The owner of the store is still in shock and does not comment on this incident.
But people on the Internet suggested that this could be due to the fact that the ventilation stopped working, which was turned off while the store was not working.
The only plus in this situation is that Nex's photos went viral, collecting over 11,000 likes in just a day, and were circulated in various media.
Of course, the store owner is not in the mood for jokes, but netizens were humorous, saying that this is a good way to find out if it is real leather or fake.
A little later, Nex posted a few more photos, which show that the cinema is also captured by mold.
COVID-19 is a virus that belongs to the group of coronaviruses, an extensive group of viruses that infect both animals and humans.
It is a new coronavirus, first identified in December 2019 in an outbreak of pneumonia in China (Wuhan City, Hubei Province). This virus has not been previously identified in humans. It belongs to the Coronaviridae family, of the same family being the viruses that cause Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) - identified in China in 2003 and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) - identified in Saudi Arabia in 2012, and the epidemiological characteristics are similar. .
The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, fatigue and dry cough. Some patients may experience pain, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people get infected, but they do not develop any symptoms and feel good. Most people (about 80%) were treated without special treatment.
About 1 in 6 people with COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and has difficulty breathing. Older people, as well as those with medical problems, such as high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop a more serious course of the disease. About 2% of the sick died. People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical help.
1.Who made the coronavirus vaccine?
The United States Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), a federal agency that funds disease-fighting technology, announced investments of nearly US$1 billion to support American COVID‑19 vaccine development, and preparation for manufacturing the most promising candidates. On 16 April, BARDA made a US$483 million investment in the vaccine developer, Moderna and its partner, Johnson & Johnson.
2.Is coronavirus vaccine ready?
Vaccines normally require years of testing and additional time to produce at scale, but scientists are hoping to develop a coronavirus vaccine within 12 to 18 months.
Vaccines mimic the virus – or part of the virus – they protect against, stimulating the immune system to develop antibodies. They must follow higher safety standards than other drugs because they are given to millions of healthy people.
3.How many people died from coronavirus today?
1,368,510 people have died so far from the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak as of November 20, 2020. You can check online info on Worldometers.info
4.How long are you contagious with covid?
You can be around others after:
- 10 days since symptoms first appeared and
- 24 hours with no fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and
- Other symptoms of COVID-19 are improving
5.Why is it called Coronavirus?
Coronavirus refers to a large family of viruses that includes SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. For this reason, some people call the virus coronavirus.
6.Is there a vaccine for Coronavirus?
A new vaccine that protects against Covid-19 is nearly 95% effective, early data from US company Moderna shows.
The results come hot on the heels of similar results from Pfizer, and add to growing confidence that vaccines can help end the pandemic.
Both companies used a highly innovative and experimental approach to designing their vaccines.
Moderna says it is a "great day" and they plan to apply for approval to use the vaccine in the next few weeks.
However, this is still early data and key questions remain unanswered.
7.What states are on lockdown?
The New York Times is tracking coronavirus restrictions on the state level, including what businesses are open or closed — and whether officials require masks or recommend or order staying at home. Stricter local orders may also be in place.
8.When will coronavirus vaccine be ready?
Pfizer says its mRNA vaccine was found to prevent 90% of infections in clinical trials, a much better performance than most experts had hoped for.
The WHO mentioned it doesn't expect widespread vaccinations against coronavirus until mid-2021.
9.Why are Covid cases increasing?
It's difficult to explain precisely why.
One contributing factor has been the return to school for US students.
A recent study from the US Centers for Disease Control on the almost 100,000 coronavirus cases reported between 2 August and 5 September - around when college students began their return to school - found that weekly cases among those aged 18-22 increased by 55% nationally.
The greatest increases came from the Northeast (which includes New York, Connecticut and New Jersey) and the Midwest, which is a region located west of the Northeast, including Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Wisconsin.
There have now been more than 130,000 cases identified at more than 1,300 American colleges, according to reporting from the New York Times.
10.Who is most at risk for the coronavirus disease?
Adults of any age with the following conditions are at increased risk of severe illness from the virus that causes COVID-19:
- Chronic kidney disease
- COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
- Heart conditions, such as heart failure, coronary artery disease, or cardiomyopathies

The French Brewers Association has announced that it will be forced to destroy 10 million liters of beer due to the closure of cafes, restaurants and pubs caused by the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, BFM reports.
The liquidation will be made, since the shelf life of the drink is running out and there is no point in storing beer further. Moreover, the destruction of products will cost significant amounts for the companies.
"The abrupt closure of cafes, restaurants, stopping tourist activities and the cancellation of all festivals and events have led to the fact that more than 10 million liters of beer are not in demand," the association announced.
It is noted that about 70% of breweries in France reported a reduction of at least half the turnover since mid-March.
The tough form of isolation regime in France is expected to end on May 11. Citizens will be able to move around without special permission from the authorities, which is currently necessary due to the isolation regime introduced in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic, except for movements over distances of more than 100 km from the house, which will be possible only for family or professional reasons.
At the same time, citizens over 65 years of age are still being urged to respect the isolation regime due to higher risk of infection in this age group.
After May 11, a gradual resumption of companies will begin, although working from home will continue, where possible, for at least the next three weeks.
The trading network, except for restaurants and cafes, will open on May 11. For restaurants and cafes, a separate decision will be made at the end of May with the prospect of a possible opening after June 2.
At the same time, a recent pole by FranceInfo reported that –25% of breweries in France have been forced to close and 70% have declared a loss of up to 50% in revenue since March 15.
Russians are withdrawing cash after the russian president appeals to the public that the coronavirus pandemic is in under control - Bloomberg reports
Since the beginning of March, Russian banks and ATMs issued to customers about 1 trillion rubles ($ 13.6 billion) in cash, which is more than the amount that Russians withdrew from banks over the past year, the Central Bank said.
Bloomber was the first agency who noticed.
According to the them, the Russians began to actively withdraw money before the new anticoronavirus measures where introduced.
“People were afraid that banks would not be available during quarantine,” Denis Poryvay, an analyst at Raiffeisenbank in Moscow, explained to the agency the behavior of Russians. “They were withdrawing money for the same reason that others stocked up on food,” he added.
Bloomberg estimates that the daily increase in demand for cash came after key announcements made by Russian President Vladimir Putin during his televisions to citizens. So, the first leap occurred after the head of state announced a tax on bank deposits in excess of 1 million rubles. And the peak fell on March 3. The day before, the president declared that the entire month of April will be a non-working month,
Around the same period, in mid-March, Bloomberg notes with reference to retailers, demand for low-cost nutritious foods, such as buckwheat and canned meat, also increased. The Kremlin and the Central Bank have not yet commented on this news.
The fight against coronavirus
With television appeals in connection with the spread in Russia of a new type of coronavirus, Putin turned to the Russians twice. In the first, he postponed the date of voting on amendments to the Constitution and announced the measures prepared by the state to combat the epidemic.
Among them were not only support measures, but also new taxes, for example, on bank deposits in excess of 1 million rubles. In the second appeal, the president declared April a non-working month, but with the preservation of wages.
The authorities did not begin to introduce quarantines at the federal level in connection with the pandemic. For this Putin was criticized by leading Russian economists, including professor at the Paris University of Sciences Po Sergey Guriev, professor at the Paris School of Economics Ekaterina Zhuravskaya, professor of economics at Princeton University Oleg Itzhoki and others.
Later, they called the measures of state support for business and people under quarantine conditions short-sighted and called on the Russian authorities to distribute to each Russian at a fixed amount (for example, 10,000 rubles). The money for this, experts beleive, is in the National Welfare Fund.
But the Central Bank did not support such an initiative.
Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin expressed a similar point of view. He noted that with the implementation of such a measure, budgets will go bust.
According to the latest official information, more than 43,000 cases of coronavirus infection have been registered in Russia. More than 361 people who were diagnosed with COVID-19 have died. The most difficult epidemiological situation among all Russian regions is in Moscow and the Moscow region.
