Some Yankees are positive for coronavirus

Four members of the Yankees organization in Tampa, Florida, have tested positive for the corona virus, several people with knowledge of the situation told The Post.

Two members work at George M. Steinbrenner Field and two have ties with the nearest minor league complex. Members are not identified by their proper name or job description, nor are they known when they were tested.

The two who are connected to George M. Steinbrenner Field are non-players and one of the two in the small league complex is a staff member who has not been around the Yankees facilities for a while.

Job descriptions from others connected to minor league facilities are unknown.

The Yankees do a test on Friday in Tampa, so there is a chance the number of positive results will increase. The Yankees had two minor league players tested positive for the virus in March, which caused the minor league camp to be closed.

The Yankees have held informal training for major league players three days a week on Steinbrenner Field, but the training ended on Friday because several major league teams received positive test results for COVID-19. The MLB then orders the facility to be closed for training and undergoes a thorough cleaning process.

Phillies had eight positive tests in Clearwater, Florida, and the Blue Jays closed their spring training facility on Friday in nearby Dunedin when a player showed symptoms related to COVID-19. Rangers and Giants, which has spring training facilities in Arizona, closed it this week.

Governor N.Y. Andrew Cuomo announced on Saturday that the Yankees and Mets would train at Yankee Stadium and Citi Field, respectively, if spring training took place, this was after the Yankees the day before discussed possible steps due to a surge in the Florida case.

Florida saw 4,000 new cases emerge on Friday, a record one-day increase for the state.

With the owner and player still deciding what the season is like in terms of games played and start dates, MLB is not expected to reveal when spring training will begin until after the party agrees to the agreement or commissioner Rob Manfred implements the schedule.

It is possible for the Yankees to use Scranton / Wilkes-Barre for their “taxi squad” players (30 at the start) during spring training and the place where they will train if a season is underway. SWB is a Yankees’ Triple-A affiliation, 158 km from New York City by car.

Every Portuguese wastes 183 kg of food a year, and this is "inconceivable".

President of the Portuguese Federation of Food Banks Against Hunger Isabelle Jonet considers food waste unacceptable and absurd, as every Portuguese wastes 183 kg of food a year.

The data, official and published for the first time, refers to 2020 and shows that 1.89 million tons of food was wasted in Portugal this year, so each Portuguese wasted an average of 183.6 kilograms of food.

INE statistics show that families spend the most. The figures show that over 1.2 million tons of food was wasted by families this year, followed by catering with over 237 thousand tons, trade and distribution with 214 thousand tons, primary production with over 101 thousand tons and food . industry, about 61 thousand tons.

“We buy too much, we buy bad, we let it go bad. It is unacceptable that a third of what is produced ends up in the trash,” the official said, speaking at a debate organized by the United Movement Against Waste.

Ana Cristina Carrola of the Portuguese Environmental Protection Agency (APA), who also took part in the debate, stressed that the average amount of waste per year per inhabitant in the European Union is 173 kg, less than the 183 kg that is thrown away by the Portuguese.

“This is unthinkable in our day,” he lamented.
