Cases and deaths related to coronavirus in all regions increasing faster than anywhere in the world. And in the hardest hit countries, they show no signs of slowing down. This region has recorded nearly 1.2 million cases and more than 60,000 deaths.

“We are particularly concerned about Central and South America, where many countries are witnessing an accelerating epidemic,” World Health Organization Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Wednesday.

WHO does not believe that Central or South America has reached the peak of transmission, which means the number of people who are sick and dying may continue to increase.

Health officials warn countries not to reopen their economies too quickly, even when countries are preparing to reopen or have already done so.

Following are outbreaks in the three hardest hit countries in Latin America, which account for around 60% of the region’s population. And there are success stories too.

Brazil

Brazil stuck in crisis mode.

The country has recorded at least 645,771 cases of corona virus and 35,026 deaths.

It has recently passed Italy to become the third highest fatality country in the world and is likely to soon surpass England.

That means Brazil will have the second most cases and deaths in the world, only in the United States.

It should be noted, however, that Brazil is testing at a much lower rate than the US. That means many cases are not registered.

In the most populous state of São Paulo, the Ministry of Health coordinator said several cases of coronavirus might have been noted as severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, due to the low Covid-19 testing capacity of the country.

A study released this week by the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul said Brazil would record 1 million cases and 50,000 deaths on June 20.

Meanwhile, several major Brazilian cities began to reopen. Rio de Janeiro allows non-essential businesses such as churches, car shops and decoration shops to receive customers once again.

Mexico

Two things happen at Mexico this week who seemed to be at odds with each other.

First, Mexico recorded its worst week of outbreaks, both in confirmed cases and deaths.

It recorded more than 1,000 deaths in one day for the first time. And for three consecutive days, this recorded a one-day high in a new case.

Despite gloomy figures, and conflicting messages from government leaders, officials have pushed ahead with plans for a gradual reopening across the country.

Deputy Health Secretary Hugo López Gatell, who led Mexico’s Covid-19 response, urged Mexicans to stay home. He stressed that the country did not come out of the forest, even if some economic sectors began to reopen.

But President Andrés Manuel López Obrador offers a different message.

“Don’t steal, don’t rob, don’t betray, and that helps a lot by not getting a coronavirus,” he said on Thursday. He also tells people to be socially distanced when they can, and wash their hands.

AMLO, as the President is generally known, went out of Mexico City on Monday for the first time since the end of March.

He toured the Yucatán Peninsula and inaugurated the development called Maya Train, an ambitious infrastructure project that would connect cities in five southeastern states.

Mexico has recorded 110,026 cases and 13,170 deaths. But given the very low level of testing in the country, health officials say the actual number of cases is likely to reach millions.

Peruvian

People in Callao, Peruvian, lined up for hours this week to refill their oxygen tanks. But once they got to the forefront, relatives of patients with Covid-19 found the prices skyrocketing.

One person told CNN TVPerú Noticias affiliate that oxygen prices doubled. And the government now recognizes that there is a problem.

“Our mission is to avoid the development of commercial black markets and use pandemics to harass people,” said Cesar Chaname, a spokesman for Peru’s public health agency.

Peru continues to wrestle with one of the worst outbreaks in Latin America, 187,400 of which are the second highest in the region behind Brazil.

This country has a much better level of testing than other countries in the region, something experts say helps understand how bad the plague is.

Residents stand in a row in a public kitchen on the outskirts of Lima, Peru, on Friday, May 29.

But even with that knowledge, economic victims have pressured the authorities to reopen the economy.

This week officials announced Peru would enter Phase 2 of the reopening plan, where businesses such as clothing stores and hair salons could operate again.

Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra said the move meant around 80% of the economy would soon be opened.

“We cannot support 100% of the country’s needs with only 50% of economic output,” he said.

Uruguay

Apart from the brutal situation faced by many countries in Latin America, there are some success stories too. Consider Uruguay, so far with one of the most successful Covid-19 responses in the world.

A country of about 3.5 million people borders Brazil, where the worst outbreak in Latin America has had a devastating effect.

But Uruguay only recorded 834 cases. It has recorded one death since May 24 and a total of 23 deaths.

Experts say the reasons for the country’s success are many – strong initial responses including quarantine measures, a large and efficient system for tracking and isolating those infected, random testing and the formation of a crisis response committee.

As a result, there is little risk because Uruguay is starting to reopen its economy.

The country began to relax restrictions in early May. On June 1, rural primary and secondary education resumed at more than 400 schools, and businesses were also gradually being reopened.

In the last round of Portugal x Morocco was the decisive Cristiano Ronaldo and the Portuguese a la Gordon Banks.

In the last round of Portugal x Morocco was the decisive Cristiano Ronaldo and the Portuguese a la Gordon Banks.

Portugal and Morocco met in the group stage of the 2018 World Cup, and the Europeans won 1-0.

Portugal and Morocco will meet this Saturday (10) in the quarterfinals world Cup from Qatar. The last meeting between the two teams was in 2018, in the group stage of the World Cup held in Russia, and the Portuguese had the star of Cristiano Ronaldo and a brilliant performance by Rui Patricio to win the confrontation 1-0.

After scoring a hat-trick on his debut against Spain in 2018, CR7 went on a good phase and took four minutes to put the Portuguese team ahead against Atlas Lions. Four years later, the script changed for the Portuguese star, who was no longer unanimous in Portugal and lost the title to Gonçal Ramos, who scored a hat-trick against Switzerland.

Another notable figure for Portugal against Morocco in 2018 was goalkeeper Rui Patricio. The Africans dominated the match and had 15 submissions. In the 12th minute of the first half, the goalkeeper saved a header from Belanda in a move similar to Gordon Banks’ “save of the century” against Pelé in the 1970 World Cup.

In Qatar, Rui Patricio came on as a substitute and “passed the baton” to Diogo Costa, the 23-year-old who failed his debut but was an important figure in the Portuguese team’s campaign in the competition.

Frenchman Hervé Renard managed Morocco in Russia, a sensational manager in Qatar who managed to get Saudi Arabia to beat Argentina with one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history.

The winner of Portugal and Morocco will play either France or England in the semi-finals of the World Cup. The Portuguese have not been in the top four teams since the 2006 World Cup in Germany. On the other hand, the Atlas Lions want to be the first African team to reach the semi-finals of the Cup.

Portuguese government to allocate 30 million euros to help Ukrainian refugees in Poland – Cidade Hoje

The City Council of Santo Tirso today returned to Desportivo das Aves the Portuguese Football Cup trophy won in the 2017/2018 season, which the municipality bought at an auction two months ago for 30,000 euros.

“This was an injustice that our own justice wanted to bring up for discussion, but it needs to be reconsidered. It is disgusting that there are legal aspects that prevent the title from passing into the hands of others when it has been very well won on the field. The city council did only what it was responsible for, which is to keep the heritage of the population, the club and the land in the right place, ”Mayor Alberto Costa repeated to reporters.

The handover of the scepter took place on the full lawn of the CD Aves stadium, in Vila das Aves, between the winning reception of Desportivo das Aves 1930 in favor of Rio de Moinhos (3-1), in the 13th round of the 4th Series of the Football Association Division of Honor Porto.

Conquered on 20 May 2018 by beating Sporting CP in the final of the Queen’s competition (2-1) at the Estadio Nacional in Oeiras, the trophy was laid in the context of northern South Africa’s insolvency, having been put up for public auction from August to October.

A “double” by Alexandre Guedes against a goal from Colombian Fredy Montero “sealed” the unprecedented success of “Avences”, then managed by José Mota, just five days after the invasion of the Accademia de Alcochete, where supporters attacked several “Leonin players”.

“The City Council of Santo Tirso did this out of respect for those who were on the field, after a week when it seemed that Desportivo das Aves did not exist. I returned to what I did in good conscience as mayor. We took care of the formal aspects so that what happened would not happen again, ”admitted Alberto Costa.

The ceremony was attended by the footballers, technicians and other staff involved in winning the Portuguese Cup, whose scepter was carried by the then goalkeeper and “captain” Kim and striker Alexandre Guedes on the pitch to be symbolically handed over by the mayor to the newly appointed sworn-in president of the Vila das Aves club, Pedro Pereira.

“Feeling is what you felt in the stadium. There was gratitude for the most important achievement in our history, which also marked the beginning of the renaissance that we are striving for, in order for the club to return to the heights that it has reached in the past. The Portuguese Cup is well placed. The legal departments have tried to ensure that this is not going anywhere,” said successor António Freitas.

The auction was held by the Judicial Court of Comarca Porto and ended exactly two months ago, setting a minimum threshold of 1360 euros, set at an initial price of 800 euros and a base price of 1600 euros. trophy.

The greatest achievement of Desportivo das Aves was arrested by the SAD in July 2020 when the Chinese-led administration Wei Zhao failed to fulfill the licensing requirements in the professional competition of the 2020/21 season with the Clubs League and rejected an appeal to the Council of the Referee of the Portuguese Football Federation.

The Nordics had already been relegated to the II League, but “fell” by administrative means in the Campeonato de Portugal, then in the third national level due to wage arrears and unilateral layoffs of players, technical staff and employees.

SAD, which also witnessed the confiscation of two Desportivo das Aves buses, decided to withdraw from the Portuguese Championship in September 2020, five months before the Santo Tirso District Judicial Court declared it insolvent.

Almost €37,500 debts from SAD to three foreign clubs resulted in FIFA preventing the club from signing new players since August 2020, but two months later, António Freitas’ management decided to recreate the futsal and football sections that began to represent the new club. called Desportivo das Aves 1930.

Almost 80% of Brazil’s population is already registered this year. From the beginning of work, from August 1 to December 5, 168,018,345 people were registered, in 59,192,875 households, which corresponds to 78.73% of the estimated population of the country. The data is taken from the fourth balance sheet of the 2022 demographic census released this Wednesday (December 7) by the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGS).

Of the total number of respondents, the majority live in the Southeast region, 39.54%, followed by the Northeast (29.43%), South (14.76%), North (8.79%) and Midwest (7 .44%). So far, 48.4% of the census population was male and 51.6% female.

According to IBGE, the state with the highest proportion of registered people to estimated population is Piauí (96.2%), followed by Sergipe (91.2%) and Rio Grande do Norte (89.8%). The least advanced are Mato Grosso (65.9%), Amapa (66.9%) and Espirito Santo (70.67%).

In the case of Sergipe and Piaui, BIGE has already completed the first phase of data collection, with census takers traveling around the state visiting addresses. The institute will now begin the process of restoring homes that were registered for absent residents and those that people refused to respond to the census.

So far, about 2.59% of households have refused to respond, but IBGE expects to reduce this percentage by the end of the operation after all persistence protocols have been applied.
