Google is adding features to Maps to alert users to travel restrictions related to Covid-19
Google is adding features to Maps to alert users to travel restrictions related to Covid-19, to help them better plan their routes, the Alphabet group's division announced on Monday.
The update will allow users to check how crowded a station might be at a given time, or if buses on a particular route have a limited schedule, Google said.
Alerts will be available in Argentina, France, India, the Netherlands, the United States and the United Kingdom, among other countries.
The new features will include details on checkpoints for Covid-19 and restrictions at national borders, starting with Canada, Mexico and the United States.
In recent months, the company has analyzed location data from the phones of billions of users in 131 countries to examine mobility during restrictions and to help health authorities assess whether people are complying with social restraints and other orders. to control the spread of the virus.
Google has invested billions of dollars in search engine advertising revenue to digitally map the world, attracting an average of 1 billion users a month to the free navigation app.
Apple and Google team up to track patients with COVID-19
If you were near a sick person, a notification will come.
Apple and Google are developing technology to help curb the spread of coronavirus. It uses smartphones on Android and iOS with Bluetooth enabled and will allow you to keep track of who is sick COVID-19 and you contacted.
Here's how it should work:
Two people communicated briefly with each other, for example, for about 10 minutes. Their smartphones automatically exchange anonymous identifiers, which change every 15 minutes.
If one of these two is later diagnosed with COVID-19, the health authorities pass its identifiers over the past 14 days to Apple and Google - of course, only with the consent of the patient.
The system compares identifiers, and all people who have contacted the patient are given an alert and information on how to behave when there is a risk of infection.
Something similar is being created simultaneously by specialists at the Massachusetts University of Technology.
The social interaction tracking feature will be introduced in mid-May with Android and iOS updates. Then the corresponding official applications will appear on Google Play and the AppStore. They should be compatible even with fairly old versions of systems, such as Android 6.0.
If a person receives a notification about contact with an infected person, no names will be contained there. The system is decentralized and identifiers will only be stored on user devices.
Specialists from the American Civil Liberties Union believe that any smartphone tracking to control the spread of COVID-19 could violate privacy. So participation in the program should be voluntary.
It is not a joke. Newborn twins, named Corona and Covid.
The coronavirus crisis affecting the whole world has given ideas to parents in India, whose children came to the world at the end of March.
The two are the happy parents of some twins, a boy and a girl, and they wanted to remember for the rest of their lives the difficult times that the whole world goes through. So when the time came to give the babies a name, they didn't hesitate.
The girl was given the name Corona, while the boy was named Covid.
"In the context in which the cars were stopped, we both arrived at the hospital late at night, after much suffering. Since the birth took place after such great difficulties, I wanted the names to be memorable and unique, "the mother of the little ones said.
India is also affected by coronavirus, so far over 3000 cases have been confirmed, 75 dead, but 213 people have been cured.
Why do some healthy young people die from coronavirus? The specialists have two explanations
Covid-19 "attacks" the most powerful of the elderly, but even young and apparently healthy people do not get rid of coronavirus. The news about the death of some adolescents, young people without previously diagnosed health problems has shocked us in recent weeks. Why do some healthy, young people die from the new coronavirus? The specialists have two explanations, which will be deepened by thorough research.
It remains one of the biggest mysteries of the current Covid-19 pandemic. In general, the disease causes severe complications to people past the age of 65 and those with certain conditions, such as cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure or obesity. However, there were also casualties among young people without health problems, including among medical personnel. In some cases, after the death, certain conditions with which the victim had not been diagnosed, in other words, was not known to be sick.
The researchers are facing this huge challenge, to discover the cause of the strange behavior of the coronavirus. Several theories have already been put forward. Some researchers believe that the amount of virus we are infected with is extremely important: we have been exposed directly and strongly, the complications can be serious. "A person with a high viral load has more virus particles than a small virus," says virusologist Alison Sinclair of Sussex University.
"We still do not know what the impact of viral load is on the symptoms of a person infected with Covid-19. It will be important to find out if there is a link between large viral loads and serious cases, ”added Sinclair.
In addition, the first data from China suggest that viral load is higher in patients with a more severe form of the disease, as is the case with SARS and influenza.
But other researchers argue that the main explanation lies in genes. Some of us are simply genetically predisposed to develop the most serious forms of Covid-19. Virology expert Michael Skinner from Imperial College in London explained, quoted by the Guardian: "It is quite possible that some of us may have a genetic particularity that will make us react much worse when we are infected with coronavirus."
"It may be a similar sensitivity of some people with Covid-19, and this makes them more acute due to serious side effects," Skinner added.
An example of such sensitivity is given by the herpes simplex virus. In some people, a genetic mutation that affects TLR3 cell receptors in the central nervous system makes them unable to react to the worst stroke of the virus, so they make a disease called herpex simplex encephalitis that can lead to seizures.
Chlorine based disinfectant is one of the most powerful solutions that eliminates coronavirus from surfaces. The recipe is very simple and you can try it right at home. Here's what you have to do!
If you want to prepare your own disinfectant with which to sanitize your home, you will need to be very careful about how you use chlorine. Because it is a caustic substance, it should not be mixed with other solutions, but diluted only with water, in appropriate proportions. Here is the exact network and what you need to do!
How to prepare your own chlorine disinfectant. Recipe for home
The American Center for Disease Control recommends disinfecting surfaces in our home - tiles, wall tiles, linoleum, door handles, etc. - using a chlorine solution with a concentration of 1:50, ie 20 ml of chlorine per liter of water. This disinfectant, properly prepared, sanitizes surfaces and objects that we come into contact with daily, but does not affect our health. If you think this amount of chlorine is small, find out that it is actually more than enough for the complete elimination of coronavirus.
The tools you need:
You will need a spray container where you can keep the solution;
A graduated container to make the necessary measurements;
Household rubber gloves;
A nose and mouth protection mask. This way you will avoid inhaling chlorine vapors. If you do not have a mask, you can use a scarf, a handkerchief, a handkerchief, any textile material that will prevent you from inhaling the vapors;
Recipe for daily use
First of all, you must know that the disinfectant is prepared outdoors, or, if you do not live at ground house and do not have a yard, go to the balcony. If you do not have a balcony, prepare the solution in a very well ventilated room, with the windows wide open. Chlorine releases extremely toxic vapors. To make a solution with a concentration of 1:50 you need 20 ml of chlorine in 1 liter of water. Pour water into a basin, add chlorine, mix and use the solution for washing on the floor or for disinfecting other objects. The disinfectant can be used daily, and if it is more concentrated, it should be used once a few days.
The chlorine-based disinfectant is prepared according to a very simple recipe, but we must pay close attention to the quantities of chlorine and water we use. It is the most important aspect. If not, chlorine could seriously affect our health.
