Several states in the United States have reinstated the mandatory use of masks.

Vaccination is very important, but it used to be thought that the viral load of a vaccinated person was low, which would prevent transmission of the infection. But apparently not so.”

“People need to realize that the vaccination certificate gives us some guaranteesfrom what to a person is more protected from serious diseases, but this does not replace the use of a mask. This is one of the measures that protects us the most, ”warns the president of doctors, Miguel Guimaraes.

Joe Biden promises ‘fast and hard’ response if Russia annexes Ukraine



US President Joe Biden warned on Friday that Russia would pay “quickly and seriously” if it uses “fake” referendums to annex territories belonging to Ukraine.

“The Russian referendums are a farce, a false pretext for trying to annex parts of Ukraine by force, a blatant violation of international law,” Biden said in a statement.

“We will work with our allies and partners to impose rapid and severe additional economic costs on Russia,” he added.

The referenda started this morning in Lugansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions and will last five days.

Ukrainian authorities say people are voting under threat of punishment.

On the other hand, the chairman of the Russian parliament (Duma) justified the referenda as “the right to self-determination of peoples enshrined in the UN Charter“, Viacheslav Volodin urged in a message posted on Telegram.

The European Union has also already said that it will reject the result of the referendum on the annexation of territories, whatever it may be.

“The whole world has heard Putin’s latest statement about his plans to hold fake referendums as a prelude to an illegal annexation that will never be recognized,” said the head of European diplomacyJosep Borrell in New York.

EU condemns Russia’s “lie” at the UN



“The Kremlin is waging a hybrid war that combines gun violence with the poison of lies,” said Michel, who accused Moscow of using all sorts of lies to justify its invasion.

Thus, the President of the European Council insisted that the Russian government was mobilizing against an “invisible enemy” that allegedly threatens it, while the reality is that “no one threatened, attacked or invaded Russia” and “no one in Europe wanted to conflict.” “.

Michel also criticized Russia’s argument that it had to intervene in Ukraine to prevent an alleged genocide against the Russian-speaking population, which the Kremlin has repeated many times and that this is something made up for the European Union.

The Belgian politician also criticized Russia’s insistence on talking about a “special military operation” rather than a war: “This is a war, an unprovoked, illegal, unjustified aggression that is aimed at forcibly changing internationally recognized borders, and this is unacceptable.”

According to Michel, the recent partial mobilization of reservists, announced by Russian President Vladimir Putin, only confirms this.

The President of the European Council defended the sanctions imposed by the Twenty-Family as something “inevitable” aimed at stopping the Kremlin, and stressed that the group was in no way responsible for the food and fertilizer crisis facing the world, as Moscow claims.

“This is not true. Even before the war, Russia unilaterally decided to reduce the level of its exports of grain and fertilizers,” Michel emphasized, recalling that it was Moscow that imposed a naval blockade of the Black Sea, which did not allow grain to leave the country for months Ukraine.

According to him, the European Union is not asking anyone to choose between east and west or between north and south, but it is necessary to take a stand, and Europe’s position is to defend respect for borders and cooperation in the face of aggression and threat.

Michel warned of growing international divisions and said that Europe wants to be a leader, but through cooperation, listening to the rest of the world and not preaching to anyone.

The high-level week of the United Nations General Assembly began on Tuesday at UN Headquarters in New York and will run until next Monday with the presence of dozens of heads of state and government, including Portuguese Prime Minister António. Costa.
