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.
Valentine in lockdown. 20 funny memes and tweets to celebrate in isolation with your loved one
Valentine's Day or Valentine's Day is celebrated every year on February 14. It is the day when people show their affection and send greeting cards, flowers or candy, along with love messages. But the story behind this day is a sad one.
The oldest message sent on Valentine's Day in English dates from 1477, writes BBC. The day takes its name from a famous saint, about whom several stories have appeared over time.
In popular belief, St. Valentine was a priest in third-century Rome. Emperor Claudius II forbade marriages because, he said, married men are weak soldiers, and Valentin disregarded the rule, which he thought was unfair, and continued to hold marriages in secret.
It seems that this year we will access the services of delivery couriers and nice messages. The pandemic is really affecting us, as is Valentine's Day. Bemorepanda has collected several memes about this situation.

Meet the Russian who walks around the city during the Coronavirus pandemic - dressed as a plague doctor
A man in the costume of a plague doctor walks along the Kaliningrad streets, a Russian exclave on the Baltic Sea. It is sandwiched between Poland and Lithuania along the Baltic coast. The people look at the tall, thin figure in black with surprise. “Klops” found out who is hiding under a mask with a beak, and why he does it.
Vasily Lunev - 33, is married and works in his own workshop for sewing leather products. He wears a medieval doctor's costume to demonstrate his skills and surprise people.
“I am interested in history, I participate in reconstruction festivals. The“ plague doctor ”character attracts me for many reasons. Most of all, I like that you can hide your face behind a mask with a beak,” Lunev explained.
Vasily’s costume consists of a leather apron, a shirt with a collar, a spacious hood, a mask and gloves.
“Doctors carried cones, bottles, amulets that rang when walking. They also had a knife and scissors. They didn’t have a medical education, they hired them to clean up the bodies of the dead, take tests, and forgive sins,” the man says enthusiastically.
On the street, people have mixed reactions of my outfit. Sometimes passers-by shy away, sometimes laugh. Vasily complains that Kaliningrad is unfriendly to new things which are not the norm.
"Our people are more conservative than in St. Petersburg or Moscow. There, people notice me and my costume is expressing a healthy interest. However, when I walk on the streets of Kaliningrad, very often people advise, "to go to a psychologist or a priest," Vasily shares.
Lunev emphasizes that his outfit has nothing to do with the coronavirus epidemic. He began to wear and wear it a couple of years ago.
“Yes, this is the first chemical protection suit in history, but it won’t save you from COVID-19. A mask with a beak unreliably isolates. According to current realities, a gas mask is better,” he informs.
Bemorepanda is inviting you to see a collection of pictures taken by Mr Lunev:

After The Coronavirus, Now A New Virus Has Come In The Market - Hantavirus, Killing One Person
Even when the world is trying to find a cure for the deadly coronavirus pandemic, a new virus is threatening our society.
A report in Global Times said that a man from China's Yunnan province died from Hantavirus while on a bus to the Shandong province. Other 32 people on bus were also tested and now everyone is waiting for the results.
What is Hantavirus?
The Centre for Disease Control says that the virus is spread mainly from rodents. It goes on to say that infection with any of the hantavirus can cause hantavirus disease in people.
"Hantaviruses in the Americas are known as “New World” hantaviruses and may cause hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS). Other hantaviruses, known as “Old World” hantaviruses, are found mostly in Europe and Asia and may cause hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome.
It can cause hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) and haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS).
The disease is not airborne and can only spread to people if they come in contact with urine, feces, and saliva of rodents and less frequently by a bite from an infected host.
Symptoms of hantavirus
Early symptoms of HPS include fatigue, fever, and muscle aches, along with headaches, dizziness, chills and abdominal problems. If left untreated, it can lead to coughing and shortness of breath and can be fatal, with a mortality rate of 38 percent, according to CDC.
While the initial symptoms of HFRS too remain the same, it can cause low blood pressure, acute shock, vascular leakage, and acute kidney failure.
However, aside from the negative news coming from China, some Twitter users woke up from their quarantine naps to find #HantaVirus trending. And here are their reactions:
When you're not even done with Covid-19 and China releases Covid-20 Pro max#Hantavirus
After the coronavirus, now a new virus has come in the market

How People Are Skipping Zoom Meetings Using Looping Videos
As more people are working remotely due to the Coronavirus quarantine, employees are finding creative ways to appear more online than they actually are.
For example, today most companies are using Zoom Meetings for their daily meetings. For those who are not familiar with Zoom, it is an app that allows people to hold video conferences. Here at Bemorepanda we also use Zoom and we love it!
Ok, so far all good. But, for those who does not know, there’s a feature on Zoom that can tell hosts if chat participants have navigated away from the active window for more than 30 seconds. In other words, your computer narcs you out to your boss when you’re paying more attention to funny animal videos than you are to the meeting.This means that during meetings or online classes, if you think you can switch apps while the other person talks, the app will tell on you.
However, it seems that some Zoom users have gotten pretty creative with how they are beating the app’s feature, where some have created looping videos to make it look like they’re paying attention, while others have created a custom background which features their still image.
As far as the host is concerned, they will think you’re still in the meeting, but you in reality, you can do whatever you like, like lying on your bed, playing games, eating or just nothing. Zoom Meetings was founded in 2011 by Eric Yuan, a lead engineer from Cisco Systems and its collaboration business unit WebEx.
The company went public in April, 2019 and at that time, it was valued at $16 billion. In early 2020, usage of Zoom increased sharply as schools and companies adopted the platform for remote work in response to the coronavirus pandemic, rising 67% from the start of the year to mid-March.
President of Belarus calls coronavirus God's punishment for environmental damage
The coronavirus pandemic is a punishment from above for an irresponsible attitude towards the environment. This opinion is shared by President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko.
“I once said that he (God. - Ed.) Saw that we are behaving irresponsible towards ecology, a lifestyle that does not meet our criteria at all, and hit us (with a coronavirus pandemic) . - Ed), ”BelTA quotes him on April 25.
Such a statement was made by Lukashenko during the republican subbotnik on the territory of the Pripyatsky National Park. Previously, the Belarusian leader regularly visits the areas affected by the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, which occurred on April 26, 1986.
Earlier, in April, Lukashenko condemned the closure of churches in different countries against the backdrop of a pandemic and refused to close state borders, calling this measure "utter stupidity."
In his opinion, those infected with coronavirus do not die from infection, but from the chronic diseases that they had.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommended that the Belarusian leader introduce quarantine and curfew in the country. However, in response to criticism about the inadequacy of measures to combat the pandemic, Lukashenko said that critics do not know how the country lives.
According to Worldometer data, on April 25, in Belarus, coronavirus was detected in over 8.7 thousand people, 63 patients died.
