Spain extends quarantine. Authorities went on alert after the number of cases increased
The Spaniards were frightened and returned to harsh measures. Spain decided on Wednesday (May 6th) to extend the state of emergency for another two weeks. That was after it was given free to walks and physical activities.
Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez called on the parliament, which approved the measure, after easing the restrictions, bringing the number of cases of illness to 3,121 on May 6. This is after, after the end of April and the beginning of May, they had stabilized at 850 -1,200 new cases per day.
Spain has registered 256,855 cases of COVID-19 disease and over 26,000 deaths. The Sanchez government wants to gradually lift the measures of isolation at home and at the same time control the implementation of measures of social distancing and hygiene among the population.
Home isolation was imposed on March 14 and the state of emergency was due to end on Saturday, May 9, but will be extended until May 24. Although the opposition claimed that 60 days of state of emergency were illegal, it had to vote on the law for national security.
Austrians stormed shopping malls, Spaniards filled the streets after 49 days of isolation
The countdown has begun until the great release, announced by the authorities on May 15. Plans are being made about the operation of restaurants, hotels, rules have been imposed for the reopening of hair salons. The somewhat normal life is enjoyed by the citizens of other European states. The images of Austrians rushing into shops, or those of Spaniards enjoying sports and walks are as optimistic as they are disturbing. Authorities warn that the danger has not passed.
Since 1 May, Austria has further relaxed measures imposed in the context of the coronavirus pandemic and allowed the reopening of hairdressing salons, larger shops and shopping malls. And the images speak for themselves about the impatience with which people have been waiting for this relaxation. Queues formed in front of clothing stores, sidewalks were crowded, and parks and markets became promenades again.
Austria will further relax its containment measures from May 15, when restaurants and cafes will be reopened and religious services will be able to resume, Chancellor Sebastian Kurz was quoted as saying by Reuters on Tuesday.
Relaxation also is in Spain, one of the hardest-hit countries in terms of deaths due to the new coronavirus. Over the weekend, in Barcelona, runners and cyclists littered the streets near the beach, where surfers enjoyed the waves.
In Madrid, cyclists and young people on skateboards walked the boulevards, crossing police lanes trying to prevent congestion. Spain was one of the countries hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic and imposed strict containment measures in March. Sports and recreational activities have been banned in an attempt to stop the spread of coronavirus.
Their relatives, friends, friends of their friends died. In all families there is a tragic story: death, illness, poverty, bankruptcy. After 11 weeks of severe quarantine, the "lock" was opened and Wuhan City, the "heart" of the pandemic that has plagued the world is trying to come back to life.
The city with 11 million inhabitants begins to fall asleep after more than two and a half months, it was like a ghost. The new coronavirus started right here from an animal and bird market and spread uncontrolled across the globe. Today (April 8), a few days after China had no local transmission case, and just a day after the historic "no death of Covid-19" restrictions were lifted. The quarantine imposed on January 23 ended at midnight Tuesday through Wednesday, and passengers began storming buses and stations, some wearing full-length suits.
But the over 80,000 cases and 3,300 deaths remain behind and the hope that one day the world will look exactly like before the coronavirus. For now, it's just hope, because there's a long way to go.
Although some restrictions have been lifted by the authorities, many control measures remain in place. The Chinese were warned not to travel unless absolutely necessary. Those who go to Beijing go through two rounds of tests, and in other provinces, those who come to Wuhan have to be quarantined for two weeks, the New York Times writes.
In addition, everyone is required to use a tracking application on their phone or tablet and to prove that they were not sick or did not come into contact with sick people of COVID-19. The Chinese system records every place where people make payments and the network of hundreds of millions of surveillance video cameras is famous.

5 ideas that only need paper, pencils and pens. Children during quarantine are easily getting boring. That’s why, Bemorepanda decided to collect the best games for children and parents to play during quarantine.
A fun and simple game in which you need to create stories. Each person takes a piece of paper, writes one adjective on top. Then he folds the paper to close the word, and transfers it to another player in a circle. On a new sheet you need to write a name. Then the actions are repeated.
The order further should be as follows:
one more name;
what the characters do;
what the first said to the second;
what the second answered;
what happened after;
what people thought.
Words can change, for example, instead of the names of people, you can write the names of animals. You can also add additional moves, for example, indicate what was worn on the person. Try to come up with funnier options to make the story as fun as possible.
2. Puppet theater
To make dolls yourself, cut out the drawn figures or pictures from magazines and glue a thin (3-4 cm) strip of paper to their back. Glue or staple the ends of the strip. Now, improvised dolls can be put on your finger and play with them any funny scenes. And if you have a printer, dolls can be printed.
You can also put a real theatrical performance at home. To do this, you need to come up with a fun story, draw or print masks of heroes (for example, fairy-tale characters or animals), put them on your faces and get used to the role.
3. Dots and squares
Ideally, a piece of paper is needed for the game. Draw a wide square - this is a playing field. Take two multi-colored felt-tip pens or a pencil. The first player draws a line two cages in length anywhere inside the field. Then the other player must do the same.
If there is no sheet in the cage at hand, use the usual one. Draw a playing field, and inside at the same distance - about 1 cm - place the dots. The move will be the connection of two points with a horizontal or vertical line.
Your task is to paint over all or almost all of the edges of the cell with your own color: 3 or 4 edges - your cell, if 2 by 2 - it goes to the player who set the final line. Inside the filled square, write the letter of your name. Whose squares will be more, he won.
Crossword puzzles can be found on the Internet or compiled by yourself. To make words easier, choose a topic, such as colors, space, or animals. You can use puzzles as tasks.
To help your child learn math, you can use examples instead of verbal questions. But the child will still need to enter answers in the crossword puzzle in words. For example, 4 + 4 =? Answer: eight.
5. Crocodile on paper
The principle is the same as in the classic game: one participant explains to others the hidden word. Only it needs to be drawn, not gestured.
If you play together or three, everyone comes up with his own words. If you are four or more, guess each other's words one by one: who guesses, he draws as follows.
