A number of 51 babies born to surrogate mothers are stranded in a hotel on the outskirts of Kiev due to restrictions on the new coronavirus, which prevents parents in the United States, Europe and other regions from taking them.

 Ukraine, a country where the surrogate mother system is legal, banned foreigners from entering the country in March, and most parents saw their newborns only in pictures and video calls with the clinic.


Parents come from all over the world, including the United States, China, the United Kingdom, Sweden and Ireland.  The parents of 16 children were able to come to Ukraine during this period.  "Children receive food, enough employees take care of them, but there is no substitute for parental care," said Denis Herman, a lawyer for BioTexCom.  "We try to send parents photos of the children, we try to do video conferences, but we can't replace communication through direct contact," he added.

The surrogate mother (or borrowed mother) is a woman who accepts to an agreement to become pregnant with the goal of giving birth to a child who will be raised by another family or person as their own son.  The embryo, respectively the fetus, which is carried in the womb by the surrogate mother may be a biological son or it may be the egg previously fertilized belonging to another woman.  In the second case, the surrogate mother has no genetic connection with the child she is carrying.

thats-what-freedom-looks-like-euphoria-in-wuhan-after-quarantine

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.

red-spots-on-the-body-or-hives-another-symptom-of-covid-19-infection

The newest symptom of coronavirus infection is the appearance of red spots or a transient form of hives.  This is the conclusion reached by several experts, dermatologists in the National Union of Dermatologists-Venerologists in France.

 We all know that among the most common symptoms of coronavirus infection are dry cough, fever and respiratory difficulties.  There are, however, other signs that tell you something is wrong, but these occur sporadically and not all patients experience them.  These include loss of taste and smell, irritated and teary eyes, sore throat, and, more recently, the appearance of reddish spots, sometimes painful but also hives.  This is the conclusion reached by several French doctors who thus sound an alarm.


 The National Union of Dermatologists-Venerologists in France warns in a press release about the symptoms that may appear on the skin in case of infection with Covid-19.  "A WhatsApp group of over 400 dermatologists, organized by the National Union of Dermatologists-Venerologists in France, indicates skin lesions, whether or not associated with other Covid symptoms," the press release states.  Dermatologists detail the symptoms in question: acrosindromas (pseudo-degeneration in the extremities), the sudden appearance of sometimes painful red spots and transient episodes of hives.

 The dermatologists' union suggests that if these skin symptoms occur, consult a specialist doctor as soon as possible.  The analysis of the numerous cases reported shows that these symptoms can be associated with Covid-19. "We alert the public and physicians to detect these potentially contagious patients as soon as possible (they do not necessarily show signs of breathing difficulties)," the statement concludes.

donald-trump-horrified-the-americans-again-how-he-relaxed-on-a-sad-day-for-the-united-states

Donald Trump once again provoked the indignation of the American public opinion - even on the day when the officials from Washington announced a devastating balance of the coronavirus epidemic, the president of the United States preferred to play golf!


Trump has chosen to relax on Memorial Day, a day to pay tribute to the American military who gave their lives for their country.

 But instead of a visit to the Pentagon or Arlington Cemetery where many war heroes are buried, Trump went to his golf club, which he had not visited for more than two months.


 And at the White House, the death toll from coronavirus was close to 100,000, a figure that puts the United States at the top of both casualties and infections, over 1.6 million people.

 Asked about the fact that instead of mourning he plays golf, President Trump said he hopes to resume golf tournaments as soon as possible.


 "We want life back to normal as soon as possible. I can't wait to see golfers again and enjoy the same experience as mine," Trump said.
