What you need to know about coronavirus on Wednesday, May 27



What you need to know about coronavirus on Wednesday, May 27

The World Health Organization issued the assessment yesterday because outbreaks are accelerating in several Latin American countries.

Brazil has the most cases outside the United States, Mexico recorded the biggest one-day increase in cases and deaths yesterday, and Peru and Chile now have the highest per capita infection rates in the world above the seven-day rolling average.

“For most countries in America, now is not the time to relax restrictions or reduce prevention strategies,” WHO regional director Carissa Etienne the word. “Now is the time to stay strong, to stay alert and aggressively implement proven public health measures.”
Brazil’s daily death rate is the highest in the world this week, according to one model that is widely used, Which is now projecting that death there will hit 125,000 in early August. When the country’s health crisis develops, controversy swirls President Jair Bolsonaro, which continues to play down the risk of the virus because it focuses on the financial impact instead – like its US counterpart, President Donald Trump, who banned most of the trips from Brazil yesterday.


Q: What don’t we know about coronavirus?

A: Megan Ranney, an emergency room doctor and medical researcher at Brown University, spent last week testifying before Congress about what we know – and still don’t know – about coronavirus. After explaining the disease to MPs, he outlined our understanding of Covid-19 on Twitter’s thread that quickly went viral. The things that we are still in the dark about: The actual death rate of the case, what managed to treat it, how long the immunity lasted and when we might get an effective vaccine. While it is a critical knowledge gap that is being bridged by scientists, we know (most importantly) how to reduce transmission and death: distance social distance, testing, isolation and contact tracing, adequate personal protection equipment. We must continue to do these things to keep ourselves and our communities safe, Ranney said.

The debate about masks in America underscores deep political polarization

The simple act of wearing a mask to protect others during a pandemic is now a hotspot of politics and culture, underscoring the polarization that afflicts every corner of American life, Stephen Collinson writes.
President Trump’s use of the bully pulpit against his own government’s advice about faceplate has turned into the latest ideological motivated attack on science and politeness. This episode took place at a very intense time from the President’s distortion and disturbance cycle. Latest target: alleged 2020 Democratic rival Joe Biden. In his first face-to-face interview since the order to stay home began, Biden retaliated Trump for making fun of his mask, saying that the President was a “fool,” whose “macho” behavior caused death.

How many people have coronavirus? Sometimes, that’s just conjecture

Dozens of tests are on the market, but their reliability varies greatly. Polymeric chain reaction test (PCR), looking for coronavirus evidence, is usually accurate – but not always.

Some studies have begun to show that when a patient is seriously ill, the virus replicates deeper in the respiratory system, outside the range of the swab used for most tests. And just as false negatives cause headaches for doctors, they can also cause people to make wrong decisions when it comes to lifting restrictions aimed at slowing the spread of Covid-19.

The European Union is still divided over coronavirus assistance. That can separate them

The fight over how to fund an EU recovery from this pandemic has sparked tensions between rich and poor countries. The rift threatened to delay the economic rebound in the region and unleash the political and financial power that could separate the bloc, Julia Horowitz wrote.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen unveiled his proposal to explore Europe from a historic recession today – a € 750 billion ($ 826 billion) coronavirus recovery fund. But deep divisions between member states still need to be bridged, increasing the risk that much needed assistance can be delayed.

Australia angered China by asking for an investigation into the corona virus. Now Beijing is seeking revenge

It didn’t take long after Australia’s first call for an international investigation into the origins of the virus before the roar of replies came from China. Now, Beijing is targeting its exports, and that’s a problem. Because Australia faces a very real recession prospect, relations with China – its biggest trading partner so far – are more important than ever before, Ben Westcott writes.

Experts say Australia is seen as a test case – can liberal democracy with close trade ties with the authoritarian government in Beijing still maintain an independent foreign policy, which will sometimes be critical of the Chinese Communist Party?

Inside one of the largest brothels in the world, a sad situation is underway

“Because of this coronavirus pandemic, we are now in trouble,” said Nodi, 25. “We have no work.” She is one of nearly 1,500 women and girls, and 500 children, packed in 12 hectares brothel complex in Daulatdia, Bangladesh, resembling a crowded slum.

This site has been locked since Bangladesh issued a home-stay order nationally at the end of March. No one – including clients – is allowed in or out. The government, police and local NGOs provided some assistance to the women, but Nodi said they did not get enough food. “If this continues, children will starve to death. We pray that the virus disappears.”

When is it okay to be near other people? And how close is too close?

People who are sick with coronavirus must stay away from others until they have gone at least three days without fever, have seen symptoms improve, and until it has been 10 days since they first saw symptoms, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been said in the latest guidelines. New recommendations include tips on using public transportation and rising stocks, because the country is loosening the lockdown. Here’s what you need to know:
  • Avoid gathering in groups, and stay away from crowded spaces if possible, especially at transit stations and stops.
  • Consider skipping a row of seats between you and other drivers if possible.
  • Enter and exit the bus through the rear entrance if possible.
  • Look for social remote instructions or physical guidance offered by transit authorities (for example, floor decals or signs that indicate where to stand or sit so that they are at least 6 feet apart from the others).

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.
