US coronavirus update: Latest on cases, deaths and reopening

Latin America lost the war against coronavirus.

As a global amount Covid-19 victims reached 400,000, the region has become a pandemic hotspot.

Latin America has recorded almost 1.2 million cases and more than 60,000 deaths. But these numbers may be superficial, Matt Rivers reports. That’s because in some countries, testing rates remain low and many Covid-19 deaths are not reported.

Brazil, the most devastated country in the region, has reported a record number of new deaths in each of the last three days. One study released this week said Brazil would likely see 1 million cases and 50,000 deaths on June 20.

But tracking tolls is becoming more difficult. President Jair Bolsonaro’s government stopped reporting the total number on Thursday, the day Brazil’s death toll surpassed Italy. It removes cumulative data from official trackers and says it will only report the number of new cases and deaths every day.

“Statistical manipulation is a maneuver carried out by an authoritarian regime. This is an attempt to hide Covid-19 numbers to reduce social control of health policy,” said Chief Justice Gilmar Mendes.

Only a handful of countries in the region – Uruguay, Belize and Costa Rica – have so far managed to limit the spread of the disease. How? Initial responses, quarantine measures, efficient tracking and isolation systems and random testing.

Protesters George Floyd say it is good to brave coronavirus: “Obviously, people are a little closer together than the recommended six foot distance, but I think what what we do is very important, “said Sarah Foster, one of thousands of protesters who marched in Washington, DC yesterday.

Health experts are concerned that the virus is spreading among protesters, although most, including Foster, wear masks and try to keep their distance.

Although nervous, more than 1,000 health professionals have signed a letter expressing their concern that the protest could be closed under the guise of coronavirus protection. And they offer tips on safe ways to maintain protests on the spot.

“White supremacy is a deadly public health problem that precedes and contributes to COVID-19,” they wrote.

Early pandemic efforts to liberate America held by Iran: In a strange twist of fate, Michael White, a US Navy veteran released from Iranian detention this week, may owe his freedom to a coronavirus outbreak.

When he and an Iranian were arrested in the US for the virus, the virus provided an opportunity to begin complex negotiations which culminated in his release, Vivian Salama reports.

What does Coronavirus look like if you don’t have internet access: With most of the world locked in recent months, billions of people have witnessed the coronavirus crisis unfold through a seemingly universal window: the internet.

Eliza Mackintosh reported on billions that remain offline. For them, lockdown means losing direct access to vital public health information, remote work opportunity, online learning, telemedicine, digital appointments food delivery, live religious broadcasts – wedding and funerals – and many other ways we now live our lives online.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
