Bathing ban lifted again :: wetter.at

The bathing water quality in the New Danube has been restored

Swimming is now possible again in the entire New Danube. The laboratories for hygiene of MA 39 have completed their investigations into the water quality and announce that the bathing water quality in the New Danube has been restored. All relevant microbiological values ​​are back in the “green” area. The red flags that were hoisted along the New Danube will be drawn in today.

The background to the bathing ban was a brief flood of the Danube a few days ago. Since water flows into the New Danube when the Danube floods, a bathing ban in the New Danube will be declared for reasons of water hygiene.

Due to the strong currents in the New Danube, the underwater plants that also grow in the New Danube were uprooted and subsequently drifted increasingly on the water surface. The employees of Wiener Gewässer started collecting the plants last Friday, today the water surfaces from weir 1 towards the south are being cleaned. The bank paths in the south of the Danube Island, which have been partially flooded, have already been cleaned.

Now comes the falling stars rain over Austria :: wetter.at

The peak of the annual phenomenon is on Wednesday – but at an inconvenient time.

The annual Perseids meteor shower falls this year in the afternoon and the early evening of next Wednesday (August 12th). According to the Vienna Working Group for Astronomy (WAA), the competition from daylight will therefore greatly cloud the view of the falling stars. At night, the moon is also a nuisance.

Every year in mid-August, the earth crosses the orbit of comet 109P / Swift-Tuttle, whose dust trail creates the falling stars of the Perseids. This happens because the dust grains collide with the earth’s atmosphere at about 60 kilometers per second. There they evaporate at great heights, making the air behind them glow. The name “Perseids” comes from the fact that it looks like stars are falling out of the constellation of Perseus. The meteor shower is also called “Tears of Laurentius” because its appearance coincides with the name day of the martyr Laurentius on August 10th and was interpreted as tears from heaven over his martyrdom.

Highlight on Wednesday

This year the maximum of the phenomenon falls around August 12th. The Perseids head for their peak in the hours of the day between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. According to WAA President Alexander Pikhard, it is not possible to actually see the 100 to 110 shooting stars per hour that are actually possible for this extended period of time in Europe this year. Rather realistic are around 30 sightings per hour under maximally dark conditions – i.e. without annoying moon and artificial light in the vicinity of the observation area. In theory, this number would increase to 100 sightings by around 5 a.m. on August 13th. However, since the waning moon rises around midnight, the rate of actually visible events will be significantly reduced.

In view of the current Covid-19 situation, Pikhard warns of the formation of nocturnal crowds: “To observe the meteors, you only need the naked eye, no telescope or binoculars, so no observatory, and a dark place. Look for this in small groups at most so that the required distance can be maintained. ” Due to the corona and the less than ideal conditions for observation this year, the WAA is not organizing an event for collective star gazing on Vienna’s Sophienalpe, where thousands of people have met in the past for the event.

The organisers of the Salzburg festival have decided to keep the edition 2020, the centennial, in spite of the crisis of the sars coronavirus.

Heavily remodeled, it offers all the same 110 lifts the curtain (compared to 200), from the 1st to the 30 August, instead of July 18 to August 30, as planned. Certainly, the lyrical program has dramatically ” melted “, the terms and conditions of reps and the engagement, well before the first of very many musicians and technicians proved to be incompatible with the constraints of sanitary ware. Of ten operas, the offer to two : Elektra Richard Strauss (composer associated since the origin of the festival) and Cosi fan tutte Mozart, the child of the country we can only imagine that he is not present for the 100 years of the festival !

Torrential ” Elektra “ and irresistible ” Cosi “…

The tragic story of the daughter of Agamemnon, carried away by the music pouring from Strauss, will be served by the team initially announced : Krzysztof Warlikowski staging and Franz Welser-Möst at the musical direction. As for the marivaudage mozart, as tender, as playful, funny as melancholic, he will be entrusted to the conductor Joana Mallwitz, the first woman to hold the wand for an opera at the Salzburg festival.

To meet the requirements of health and to reassure the public, the organisers indicate that, in addition to the measures which had now become the “classic” hygiene, flow control and distancing, all tickets will be registered. It is to be able to keep the contact details of the spectators to prevent them if a case of infection was detected after the representation to which they attended.

There are 80 000 tickets, instead of the 230 000 initially projected, which are put on sale by the festival, which takes place in a country where the impact of the sars coronavirus has been relatively low – less than 700 deaths to 16 889 cases detected in Austria. The epidemic is now seen as circumscribed but we cannot forget that Salzburg became a small summary of the world during the summer, with the festival attracting fans from all over the world and international artists. Remains to be seen now that each other, may come in peace and freedom.

“Astonishing improvement” … plasma therapy says in two countries

Before using the plasma, the woman spent a week in intensive care in a serious and deteriorating condition, according to Mazur, who is the hospital’s director of medical affairs.

The woman has been in hospital since April 23 and is in good condition.

The baby, born in the thirtieth week of pregnancy, was not injured, but she needed extensive care and was transferred to another hospital. Her condition is improving, too.

In another development, Austria announced, on Thursday, that patients with coronavirus will be cured after being treated with serum (blood plasma) from patients recovering from the disease.

Robert Krause, an infectious pathologist at Graz Hospital in the south of the country, told a news conference that this treatment gave convincing results in three patients, and they have recovered.

However, the specialist said, “an option has been given to carefully selected patients that cannot be generalized.”

This protocol was chosen in particular in two patients suffering from other diseases, and their immune system was very weak.

In total, 20 people in Austria were treated with blood plasma from recovered people.

On Thursday, the Red Cross Society sent an urgent appeal to plasma donors so that experiments with this potential treatment could be expanded.

About 200 donors have so far applied for this.

But doctors said this treatment had “side effects”, and it was necessary to improve knowledge of its effectiveness.

Other countries have permitted plasma use in similar experiments, such as France, the United States, Switzerland and China.

Czech Republic plans to open borders with four neighboring countries in July :: Society :: RBC

The borders of the Czech Republic with four neighboring countries – Austria, Germany, Poland and Slovakia – can be fully opened from July. This was stated by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the country Tomas Petrzycek, writes Aktualne.cz

“I would like the borders with four neighboring countries – Austria, Germany, Poland and Slovakia – to be fully open since July,” said Petrzycek.

The Foreign Minister said that negotiations on opening borders with the Slovak and Austrian have advanced farthest. He also admitted that opening borders with Poland would be difficult.

Czech Republic became the first country to open borders in the EU

In addition, Petrzycek did not rule out that from the beginning of the summer holidays travel to Bulgaria, Hungary and the Baltic countries will be allowed, since these states are well opposed to the spread of coronavirus. Since August, he allowed the opening of borders with Croatia, Greece, Slovenia and Malta.

“I believe that from July we could return to the normal functioning of not only the Schengen zone,” the minister said, adding that if the epidemiological situation improves, the process of opening borders can be accelerated.

Out of the buffets: what else is changing – news

Tourism wants to welcome guests to Austria again in summer at the latest. A package of measures was presented to show how this could work.

It is not yet clear when and if a summer season can start in domestic tourism, but plans are already being made. One thing is clear: there will be strict restrictions for the guests. Nothing is official, but a border opening for guests – for example from Germany – is currently being discussed.

Upper Austrian Tourism Councilor Markus Achleitner already has plans in his pocket about how a summer season could work, the “Oberösterreichische Nachrichten” reports. In planning with other regional councils for tourism, it is conceivable to open swimming pools at fixed intervals for loungers. However, guests would have to act “with common sense”.

No more buffet?

As with the cash register in the supermarket, the reception desks in hotels could be given plexiglass protection. But the buffet is not looking good: breakfast, lunch and dinner would have to be served so that no groups can form at a buffet. In the case of cable cars and the like, individual transportation must take place; only one person or family may enter a cabin.

A solution with one-way regulations should even be possible for zoos so that visitors cannot get in the way on the paths. As Achleitner says, the main problem for most tourism companies is the entrance and exit area. He suggests that they have to be increasingly regulated via barriers and turnstiles, “as is already the case in thermal baths or cable cars”.

It is hoped that businesses and hotels will be able to open again in mid-May. The government plans to announce its plans for this next week.
