President of Belarus calls coronavirus God's punishment for environmental damage

president-of-belarus-calls-coronavirus-gods-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.

Experts believe that the situation with the coronavirus epidemic in Belarus is at the point where an urgent decision is needed. The number of cases began to increase by 30-40% per day.


The population of Belarus begins to complain against the fact that the country's president, Alexander Lukashenko, does not introduce any quarantine measures in the country, but, on the contrary, practically denies the existence of an epidemic. Residents made a petition calling on the authorities to quarantine. It has already been signed by more than 150 thousand people.


Moreover, the son of a resident of Polotsk, who died of pneumonia, Lidia Matveeva, who was diagnosed with a coronavirus, wrote a statement to the police demanding to institute criminal proceedings against the president, Alexander Lukashenko.


Economist Aleksnadr Rogers believes that it is too early to talk about the alarming situation, Lukashenko still has time to maneuver.



Here the situation is not simple: Alexander Grigorievich is a stubborn man, if he has decided something, he will not give up. So I'm not sure that he will make another decision. But, on the other hand, it’s also impossible to say exactly how much sick, the tests in Belarus are few, the influx of patients, a certain critical mass is also not observed, and the statement to the police is, excuse me, a cry of the soul, one can only sympathize with a person, - says Rogers.


The expert noted that, according to rumors, an epidemic has been going on in Belarus for a long time, and the death toll is increasing, they just make doctors hide everything, but it is not possible to verify the plausibility of such statements.


Alexander Lukashenko himself laughs at the quarantine question, saying that you can enter quarantine in 24 hours, but "who will feed us" or that "cows on a remote place do not milk."


Political analyst Dmitry Rodionov believes that he has no other option.


Lukashenko will pull to the very last. It’s hard to say where the hell is, when he realizes that you can’t do without quarantine. He may try to hide it, somehow manipulate data, but corpses are corpses. You can’t hide them, ”says Rodionov. - This is a double-edged sword: Russia can survive the quarantine - we have reserves, but Belarus has a small economy, and the country is not rich. You look at America, there over a month already ten million have lost their jobs. And in Belarus, and 100 thousand unemployed enough to start a crisis.


Rodionov believes that the key to this pandemic is the very free manipulation of the number of deaths. On the one hand, it is possible to call all victims of the coronavirus its victims, on the other hand, the death toll from the virus can be underestimated in the same way, transferring death to other causes. Whether Lukashenko adheres to one of these strategies, time will tell.



Dmitry Rodionov noted that elections will be held in Belarus this August, so the absence of economic disruptions is one of the priorities of domestic Belarusian policy.


It cannot be said when Lukashenko will change his attitude towards the epidemic and whether it will, however, most likely, in April it will become clear how the epidemic will go across Belarus. So, Russia should also be ready for such a development of events, since Belarus, despite the specific relations in the field of hydrocarbons, remains our main ally and brotherly country, ”he added.


The publicist Anatoly Wasserman, on the contrary, believes that it makes no sense to cheat with numbers, since the result will be exactly the opposite.


- To hide such things is more expensive. When they try to hide something, they distort the picture for themselves, which means they do not have the information necessary for making decisions. By the way, historians therefore trust the documents of internal reporting more. I note that many quarantine measures in Belarus have been taken for a long time. Borders are controlled by neighbors, even with Russia, transit flows have been supervised from the very beginning, much is already being done.


Also, according to him, there is no consensus among epidemiologists on which system to combat this infection is the best. So Belarusians could experiment.

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.

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:

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.
