Here is the quarantine center for cats that have coronavirus!

Dozens of felted, spotted, colored and pampered cats have arrived at the world's first veterinary clinic to hospitalize and treat cats with COVID-19.  The head of the Russian National Veterinary Service, Nikolai Vlasov, approved the testing of cats and their immediate quarantine.


Russia faces a wave of more than 8,500 new cases of coronavirus each day and has 387,700 people infected and 4,400 people who have died from the killer virus.  Authorities have conducted 10 million tests so far and for a week have been testing the pets of people who have been diagnosed with the relentless disease.  The head of the Russian National Veterinary Service, Nikolai Vlasov, had to approve the testing of cats after several were diagnosed with COVID-19.

Recently, the first quarantine center for cats was inaugurated in Moscow and houses 46 specimens that had the killer virus in their noses and throats, informs RT.  Until recently, cats could be quarantined with their owners who had mild symptoms of COVID-19.


 But the virus is spreading rapidly among cats and there are no clinical tests to confirm that the cat virus cannot be transmitted to humans.  Vlasov said that in his opinion, the cat is "the end point of transmitting the virus", but that this must be confirmed by laboratory tests.  Meanwhile, the 46 specimens are treated and after about 6 days show visible signs of recovery.

No cats developed severe forms of the disease and developed immunity to the virus.  Among the quarantined cats, Saşa, Olea and Tişa are the most pampered because they enjoy the full attention of the nurses who rarely put a mask on their face in their presence.  A study by British researchers confirmed in early May that cats can get COVID-19, but is unlikely to get severe.

we-figured-out-why-cats-can-be-aggressive-during-quarantine

During quarantine we spend a lot of time with our cats at home, so we see how their behaviour changes due to our 24/7 presence at home.  When kittens bite and scratch, this is a normal stage in their development. 


So they learn the world around them and try to exist in it, reacting to what is happening. If they are not taught the rules of behavior at an early age, they will not know when to release their claws and show their teeth inappropriately. But sometimes it’s bites that can tell about important aspects of a pet’s life: his well-being, mood, or even illnesses.


Bemorepanda understood when a cat’s “bite” means that it’s better to leave it alone, and when we should pay attention to this gesture. Especially during self-isolation, cats and their owners are inseparable, in this circumstances our cats can become more aggressive and bite us.


Each cuteness has a time limit.


Unlike dogs, cats often have a low tolerance for caresses and can quickly get tired of attention. The length of time stroking to switch from pleasant to annoying depends on the pet. But when the boiling point is reached, he reacts as if in pain. Experts call this petting-induced aggression.


What to do: stop on time. From the cat you can easily understand that it is unhappy with what is happening. Let it calm down and bounce back.


Sensitive hearing prevents relaxation.


Cats are sensitive to any noise. Computer and television screens, dimmers, fluorescent lights, remote controls and electronic collars for pest control can emit high-frequency sounds that are inaudible to humans but annoying cats.


What to do: if possible, eliminate extraneous noise, and it is better to listen to music in headphones.

Human singing is not for delicate cat ears.


If you choose from what to listen to, then cats would prefer something as calm as possible or a melody consisting of cat sounds. A singing person does not produce the best effect on them. If your favorite song does not sound like meow, then your pet will probably not be impressed with such a “performance”.


What to do: look at the reaction of the cat. It happens that some of them like the voice of the owner, but more often the opposite happens. In this case, you have to chant where there is no pet.


Your cat may be allergic to you.


Cats can be allergic to many things, and sometimes it’s hard to figure out what exactly causes discomfort. Often the cause may be human dandruff. If, being next to people, the cat begins to sneeze, gasp, behave inappropriately, then it is likely that she has an allergic reaction to something related to them.


What to do: seek help and advice from a veterinarian.


Frequent kisses are not fun.


Most cats consider constant smacking as a challenge, which can lead to even more aggressive reaction during subsequent manifestations of human affection. Most often, hostility can be seen in young, energetic cats taken early from the litter, as well as those who remain alone for a long time throughout the day.


What to do: restrain love impulses and monitor the behavior of the pet during the next caresses. First you need to pay enough attention to the cat on a regular basis, and then climb to kiss at every convenient opportunity.

Jealousy for cell phone and other things.


Cats can show signs of jealousy when the owner pays more attention to an object, another person or animal. Especially if the time for a new interaction is chosen one that was previously spent on playing with a pet. A jealous cat can easily come up and knock the phone out of her hands or start biting and scratching in protest.


What to do: allocate time and pay attention to the animal every free moment. Get some interactive toys, fountain sticks, or laser pointers that let you play with your cat.


Boredom and doing nothing leave a choice.


From boredom, a cat can begin to nibble wires, chew plants, bite a person. It is impossible to give the pet attention around the clock. And, even if you really try and devote all possible free time to him, this may still not be enough. Then you have to put up with the wild imagination of the animal.


What to do: buy toys that the cat could play with on its own. But it is better to refuse ringing trinkets: you are unlikely to want to hear in the night how the restless pet is having fun.



From time to time it’s important to show who is the boss in the house


Domination for cats is one of the main behavioral features. The less opportunities they have in childhood to play and interact with people and other animals, the more authoritarianism can manifest themselves on their part. This is because they simply have not learned to control and limit themselves.


What to do: discourage any manifestation of dominance. Do not let your cat bite or grab you, use the punishment for such behavior.


Bites as a way to report pain.


If the cat, which until then had a calm attitude towards stroking by the owner, begins to bite during caresses, then maybe something hurts her. This may be a small wound that is not visible due to fluffy hair.


What to do: carefully check the cat for damage, without jerking it or causing discomfort. It is also worth paying attention to whether he began to lick any part of the body especially carefully, which he had not done before. It is likely that in that place the pet feels pain.


Too playful mood.


Of course, the easiest way to play with the cat is to make a "formidable hand" and attack the kitty. When it is still a kid, it is fun, but as soon as it has grown up, such a habit ceases to be cute and playful.


What to do: make sure that you do not accustom it to play with arms or legs.

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.

funny-photos-of-people-protecting-themselves-from-coronavirus

According to WHO, traditional folk or home remedies can help to improve well-being and alleviate the symptoms of COVID-19, but there are still no drugs that can prevent or treat this disease.  Despite this, people, not understanding the seriousness of the situation, sometimes try to protect themselves with the help of extremely dubious substances.  For example, in India they try to defend themselves by consuming cow urine and using sprays based on it.  

 People are trying to sell amulets against coronavirus, medicinal tinctures or even honey with protection against all ailments, including COVID-19.  Fortunately, most often, such offers are quickly deleted by Internet sites, so as not to mislead users.  Only obvious jokes remain on the web.  Here are some fun examples from Twitter.

main-difficulties-of-remote-work-during-quarantine

More than 1,500 people shared their complaints and concerns on Twitter. Here are the main ones.


 Loneliness

This is perhaps the most common problem. Yes, remote work expands the possibilities. You no longer need to spend several hours on the way to the office and back or be distracted by noisy colleagues in the open space. But when you work day after day, week after week, without personal communication, you get a feeling of isolation. This is especially difficult for sociable people who need more communication.


The distinction between working and non-working hours

It is difficult to disconnect from work when the home and office is the same place. Especially if team members are in different time zones. There is a feeling that you are obliged to answer at any time of the day and agree to late video calls. Sometimes this is inevitable, but it is irrational to work regularly for 14 hours a day in the long run.

 Distracting yourself

There are almost more of distracting things at home than in the office. Especially if you have children or pets. Mothers of two or more children are the one who are easily distracted during work hours at home, the needs of children always comes on the first place.


No inspiration

Talking with colleagues in the kitchen or near a water cooler is an inspiration to many. After all, not everyone shares their opinions in instant messengers, where they are visible to the whole team, and the text cannot be deleted. During personal communication, new ideas often arise, and not fully formed thoughts in the discussion process lead to unexpected decisions.


Communication problems

Video chat tools began to work much better, but there are still overlays: either the connection breaks, or the background noise makes it difficult to make out clear the speaker’s words. And in general, they are inconvenient for several people to communicate, because they were created for one-on-one meetings.


The feeling of less importance than those in the office

Lack of respect is not the most obvious minus of remote work, but it often arises in companies where personal communication is valued. Indeed, there are people who procrastinate at home. But their minority, and prejudice applies to everyone. Responsible employees because of this have once again to worry about the opinions of colleagues.
