russia-is-offering-1500-to-volunteers-who-get-injected-with-a-covid-vaccine

Russia will begin testing a covid vaccine on paid volunteers next week, writes The Moscow Times.


Vadim Tarasov, the director of the institute that will conduct the study, explained that 50 volunteers were selected, and those who will participate in the study until the end will be paid 100,000 rubles ($ 1,450).  Those who participate only partially will be rewarded with 20,000 rubles ($ 288).  The vaccine was developed by a state-owned research institute.

 The study, which will begin on June 7, is open to "healthy women and men, aged 18-60," according to documents distributed earlier this week on social media by students at a medical university in Moscow.  Tarasov confirmed the authenticity of the test guide and the online registration form.


 In the first phase of the study, participants will be isolated at a medical unit in Zvenigorod, a city 50 km from Moscow, on June 9-22.  The vaccine will be administered to participants only in the second phase, which will take place between June 23 and July 20, and the volunteers will be transferred to a research center in Moscow.

 Russia ranks third in the world in the number of coronavirus cases, with more than 440,000 patients.  On Thursday, 8,831 new cases and 169 deaths were confirmed.

the-eiffel-tower-reopens-for-visitors

The Eiffel Tower, the most visited monument in the world, will reopen to the public on June 25, after being closed for more than three months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a statement from the Company that manages the monument and taken over by EFE.

 

“We are eager for the Tower to receive visitors again, of course under strict protection measures and within the current sanitary measures in force ", the general manager of the company that manages the monument, Patrick Branco Ruivo, wrote in the communiqué, writes Agerpres.


  In order to have access to the tower, it is recommended to buy tickets on the Internet, the obligatory use of protective masks, and a signaling system will be installed in the whole monument for the orderly management of visitors, whose number will be limited both on floors and at  entrance, and a daily disinfection of public spaces will be carried out.  

In the first moment, the access will be made exclusively on the stairs and up to the second floor, with the entrance through the east wing and the exit through the west to minimize the contact between the visits.  The main elevator will not be reopened yet, and its use will depend on the evolution of the sanitary crisis.  


The Eiffel Tower was closed to the public due to the coronavirus pandemic on March 13 and was then used as a symbol to support gestures of solidarity with health workers and the victims of the virus.

an-88-year-old-american-is-one-of-the-recent-graduates-of-st-john-university

It is never too late to fulfill your dreams or finish college.  This is demonstrated by an 88-year-old American who is one of the recent graduates of St. John University, Brooklyn. 


Pat his youth he gave up college to work, but the dream of being a student again pursued him all his life.


 In his old age, the man remembered what he had said to his four children, three lawyers and a teacher: "Don't go to college just to get a job. Go and enjoy your free time."  He followed his own advice and graduated from college.

 He watched the graduation ceremony online, from his personal tablet, in the context of the epidemic.


It doesn't make me sad that at my age I'm alone and not at the graduation ceremony.  There are a lot of people living alone in coffins now, so I'm not complaining, "The old man gave advice to the young people, advice he gave in the past to his four children.

"Don't go to college just to get a job. Go and enjoy your free time," said graduate Pat Branley.

ten-countries-that-have-not-been-affected-by-the-coronavirus-pandemic

Every day, almost every country in the world counts its sick or dead because of the new coronavirus.  Brazil has now become the second most affected country, after the United States.  There are few places that have not been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.  But there are, however, some last "points of resistance" on Earth.


Africa, a continent that seemed spared for a time of pandemic, now has no "untouched" country after including the isolated Lesotho, a high-altitude country, practically an enclave in South Africa, has already announced the first cases, in the middle of the month  May.


 However, some countries seem to be exempt from this wave.  Of the 193 UN-recognized states, only ten have reported no cases of COVID-19.


 Among them is the Samoa Islands, which has a population of 250,000.  Affected by a measles epidemic that took the lives of 70 children, at the end of 2019, this archipelago in Oceania quickly declared a state of emergency, closed its schools and airport.  According to France Info, the head of state ordered the population a period of fasting and prayer.


 North of Australia, Vanuatu, a country in the southern Pacific Ocean, made up of about 80 islands stretching 1,300 kilometers, has not reported any cases of COVID-19.  Devastated by Cyclone Harold on April 6, the small state was reluctant to accept help from abroad, for fear that this aid would bring with it another catastrophe: the coronavirus.


 Another pandemic-spared Pacific state: the Solomon Islands and its 653,000 inhabitants.  The 12 main islands and the 1,000 islets surrounding them have so far had no cases of coronavirus.


Micronesia, a federal state that occupies part of the Caroline Islands archipelago off the Philippines, is also part of these end-of-the-world territories that have so far escaped the coronavirus.

 The same is true of the Republic of Nauru, a slightly larger island-state than Monaco, lost somewhere in the Pacific Ocean.  With 160 tourists a year, it is one of the least visited places in the world.  The island banned travelers from China, South Korea, Italy and then Iran, however, and suspended flights from Fiji, Kiribati and Marshall Islands.


 Further west, between the Philippines and Indonesia, the Palau Islands, in the heart of the Pacific Ocean, have also benefited from their geographical isolation.  Despite coronavirus contamination in late northern Mariana Islands in the east, the government has not reported any cases of COVID-19.  Instead, this small country is facing significant supply shortages.  Prior to the pandemic, United Airlines had six flights a week between Guam and Palau.  Now there is only one flight a week.

 The Marshall Islands, made up of volcanoes and coral atolls and populated by only 75,000 inhabitants, have also remained untouched by the coronavirus.


 No cases have been reported in the island republic of Kiribati, with its 33 atolls, located between Polynesia and Micronesia.

All of these countries are spread across the Pacific Ocean, sometimes thousands of miles from a large city.  This geographical isolation, which does not usually bring them benefits, has now proven to be a lifeline, especially as there are countries that usually do not have very strong health systems.  There are small and fragile populations, which do not have, for example, artificial ventilation devices.  If an epidemic broke out, their population could be decimated.


 Two "free" coronavirus countries should be viewed with reluctance


 There are two other countries that, so far, have not declared any case of contamination with the new coronavirus: North Korea and Turkmenistan.  In both cases, the information must be viewed with reluctance, because it is governed by authoritarian regimes, too reluctant to communicate, especially when it comes to recognizing an epidemic.


 In fact, North Korea placed its military forces in isolation for 30 days, according to the head of the American troops stationed in South Korea.


 In Turkmenistan, you are not even allowed to talk about coronavirus.  The state media remains silent and the term does not appear in medical leaflets distributed in schools, hospitals and workplaces, according to Chroniques du Turkménistan, one of the few independent sources of information whose website is blocked in Turkmenistan but is hosted by the organization  Reporters Without Borders.
