The European goal is to immunize 70% of the population by the end of the summer.

Portugal has already received 9,519,240 doses and more than half (60%) of the Portuguese have already been vaccinated – 38% of the population with the complete vaccine.

AGE VACCINATION

% Of the population of each age group

Of the 710,000 doses administered last week, more than half – 52% – went towards the first doses and the other towards completing vaccination processes, mostly for people between the ages of 50 and 64. In the first doses, the vast majority – more than 72% – were in people aged 25 to 49 years.

FIRST DOSES BY AGE RANGE

Weekly doses (data from Monday to Sunday)

SECOND DOSE BY AGE RANGE

Weekly doses (data from Monday to Sunday)

However, with the proliferation of the delta variant in Portugal and the knowledge that only complete vaccinations are effective, new concerns are raised. More than 625,000 users over 65 took just one dose, and 46,000 people were not even vaccinated.

AGE-CONTROLLED DOSES

The metropolitan area still has the lowest percentage of vaccinated population: only 28% of residents of Lisbon and Vale do Tejo have a complete vaccine.

However, 6,000 more doses were administered in the last week than in the previous 7 days. Only the regions of Lisbon and Vale do Tejo and Madeira were able to increase vaccination rates.

Alentejo, where nearly 425,000 people have been vaccinated, has become the country’s most developed region: 37% received both doses; 20% take only one dose.

VACCINATION BY REGION

On mainland Portugal

All over the world, one way to understand how fast vaccinations are being carried out in different countries is to observe the number of doses administered per 100 inhabitants.

COUNTRIES WITH THE LARGEST NUMBER OF INOCULATED DOSES

Total vaccinated doses per 100 inhabitants. In countries and territories with a population of more than 400 thousand people

Israel was in the lead early in the race. The government, which sought re-election in March, paid nearly double what the European Union paid for each dose, and it shares clinical information from citizens with the pharmaceutical company Pfizer on a weekly basis.

The United Arab Emirates, and in Europe, the UK also occupies enviable positions in the world rankings. In the countries of South America, Chile stands out from all the rest.

TOTAL DOSES IN THE EUROPEAN UNION

Total inoculated doses per 100 inhabitants

Portugal has almost always been on par with the average of its 27 member states, but in the past 15 days it has accelerated its pace and has pulled away from its European partners.… When comparing the number of doses vaccinated per 100 inhabitants, Portugal ranks 7th with 92.9 doses per 100 inhabitants between the Netherlands and Germany. Malta and Hungary (which also uses Sinopharm from China and Sputnik V from Russia) stand out positively other partners. With the lowest number of doses per capita – Bulgaria, Romania and Denmark.

DOSES DISTRIBUTED IN PORTUGAL

Total per week by number of doses

In the European Union, vaccines are sent simultaneously to all Member States and the dose distribution is proportional to the number of inhabitants in each country. However, Member States are vaccinating at different rates. In Portugal, the vaccine Pfizer / BioNTech is the most widely represented and Janssen (J&J) has the least dose distribution.

POPULATION WITH FULL VACCINE

Portugal buys over 32 million doses of various covid-19 vaccines… The purchase is part of an agreement between the European Union and six pharmaceutical companies. Currently there are four vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency and used in Portugal: BioNTech / Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Janssen.

The European Medicines Agency oversees the development of the Curevax, Novavax and Spuntik V vaccines.

NEW VACCINATIONS BY COUNTRIES

Moving average for the previous 7 days

Implementation of each country’s vaccination plans depends on operational and logistical issues.

There are 4 vaccines introduced in the country: Moderna and Pfizer / BioNtech for all ages (28 days between two doses); Janssen for all men over 18 and women over 50 (single shot); and AstraZeneca for people over 60 years of age (3 months between two doses).

The former FIFA employee says she was the victim of harassment and still does not know if Miguel Macedo was punished.

Published

on

The young man, whose name has not been released, filed two complaints against Miguel Macedo over a year ago. FIFA mediator says he has evidence of abuse, but agent remains in body

A former FIFA employee, whose identity is unknown, told The New York Times whether Miguel Macedo, who is in charge of the FIFA Legends program, was punished for sexually harassing her.

According to the North American newspaper, the claims of a young woman who filed a complaint more than a year ago were confirmed by a FIFA mediator who had access to details of the behavior of the Portuguese, who maintains good relations with President Gianni Infantino.

In 2018, the former employee joined the legal department of the organizations of the governing body of world football, under the tutelage of Miguel Macedo, in charge of the FIFA Legends project, which is dedicated to the creation of activities carried out by former – world famous footballers.

That same year, according to The New York Times, the woman was subjected to several acts of sexual harassment by Miguel Macedo, who instructed what clothes to wear and sent sycophant messages to the young woman.

The victim said that one day she was asked to go to the room of the accused agent early in the morning. In another situation, on evaluation, a young woman was groped by Miguel Macedo and became the object of provocative comments. “It was one of the worst days,” said a young woman quoted by the NYT.

Despite a complaint filed by FIFA head of human resources Kimberly Morris, the organization did not take it into account, and the Portuguese agent ignored the investigation or even possible punishment.

The former FIFA official then met with the head of FIFA’s member associations, Joyce Cooke, who launched an investigation process, but months passed with no action. “I want to let you know that Miguel Macedo unexpectedly returned to the office today, and it’s becoming unbearable for me to be here. I don’t know how we can continue to stay in this unhealthy environment,” the victim emphasized in an email. addressed, later to Joyce Cook.

However, Nirmala Diaz, FIFA’s mediator, has produced a report stressing that there is sufficient documentary evidence to address the woman’s complaints against Miguel Macedo (Figo’s former agent), who is still employed by FIFA.

Europa tem alternativas para substituir parcialmente o gás russo, defendem especialistas – Atualidade

Published

on

Em declarações à France-Presse (AFP), especialistas consideraram “improvável” a interrupção total do abastecimento de gás natural russo, mas apontaram alternativas.

“Os gasodutos vêm da Noruega, Argélia e Azerbaijão, mas esses países não têm capacidade de produção adicional”, indicou Thierry Bros, professor da Sciences Po Paris.

Assim, prosseguiu, a Europa está de olhos postos no fornecimento de gás natural liquefeito (GNL), que pode chegar por navio, proveniente de qualquer parte do mundo.

Do outro lado do Oceano Atlântico, os Estados Unidos anunciaram que estão a trabalhar em “fornecimentos alternativos, que cobrem uma maioria significativa de potenciais cortes” no fornecimento de gás russo à Europa.

Nesse sentido, o Presidente Joe Biden tem já uma reunião agendada com o Emir do Catar, o maior exportador mundial de GNL, na próxima semana.

Também a Australia disse estar pronta para enviar gás natural para a Europa.

“Em termos de volumes [de GNL], os três gigantes, atualmente, são o Catar, a Austrália e os Estados Unidos”, indicou Vincent Demoury, delegado-geral do Grupo Internacional de Importadores de Gás Natural Liquefeito (GIIGNL).

“São sobretudo aqueles três países que teriam flexibilidade para produzir mais, ou redirecionar para a Europa volumes tradicionalmente direcionados para outros mercados”, acrescentou.

No entanto, “não é possível substituir todo o gás russo por GNL”, advertiu Thierry Bros.

As capacidades de regaseificação na Europa (incluindo o Reino Unido) são de cerca de 19 mil milhões de metros cúbicos (bcm) por mês, dos quais cerca de 8 bcm, em média, já estão utilizados, sobrando cerca de 11 bcm de capacidade para uso.

Aquele valor, apontou o especialista, nãoé suficiente para compensar os cerca de 14 bcm por mês vindos da Russia.

Este inverno, as reservas de gás na Europa estão baixas e os suprimentos da Rússia atingiram um nível historicamente baixo este mês.

Ainda assim, os especialistas duvidam que a Russia chegue ao ponto de fechar completamente a torneira.

“A suspensão total das exportações de gás continua a ser o menos provável dos cenários”, considerou o Eurasia Group.

Para o grupo de consultoria e pesquisa de risco político, “isso acarretaria sérios riscos de longo prazo para a estabilidade financeira e influência política da Rússia na Europa, já que a União Europeia, provavelmente, responderia agressivamente, diversificando o seu suprimento de energia”.

“Os russos não têm interesse em interromper as entregas”, realçou Thierry Bros.

Além do interesse financeiro, apontou, a manutenção das suas entregas “permite criar discordância na Europa”, uma vez que a Rússia poderia continuar a abastecer alguns países (Alemanha, Grécia, Hungria, por exemplo), mas outros não (Polónia, Lituânia) .

Perante uma crise que ilustra a forte dependência energética da Europa em relação ao seu vizinho russo, os 27 Estados-membros da União Europeia (UE) estão a ponderar soluções a médio prazo.

O primeiro caminho, que acaba de ser discutido numa reunião informal dos ministros da energia europeus, em Amiens, França, passa por estabelecer “regras mais rígidas sobre armazenamento de gás”, conforme indicou a ministra francesa para a Transição Ecológica, Barbara Pompili.

O modelo francês, que garante o preenchimento das reservas para o inverno, poderia, assim, ser ampliado.

Também o Luxemburgo sugeriu a assinatura de contratos de fornecimento de longo prazo com paises produtores considerados mais fiáveis ​​do que a Russia.
