The transfer market is more active than before, especially in Brazil, where each club is evaluating their squads to see whether or not they will renew their players for the following season. Fluminense He has plans to bring in a new striker after Evanílson left for Porto, but to do so they could give up some of his attacking pieces.
According to Casagrande veins, a journalist for Jornal O Dia in Brazil, the ‘Tricolor’ of Rio de Janeiro plans to repatriate Léo Jabá, a 22-year-old attacker who is active in PAOK Thessaloniki FC, from Greece. The Greek club no longer has him in plans, despite the fact that his contract expires until 2023; thus, Fluminense I would have to play a card: the loan of a player.
Enter here Fernando Pacheco. According to Casagrande, to achieve the deal with PAOK, ‘Flu’ would have planned to give up another striker, in this case, the former Sporting Cristal, who was recently announced as the next summoned to the Peruvian Selection, ahead of the 2022 Qatar South American Qualifiers.
However, it would not be the only offer. Although Greece’s proposal is present, the Brazilian journalist Edgar Maciel de Sá states that they would more options that it evaluates Fluminense. Of course, they still want to give it up.
“Fernando Pacheco you can soon leave the Fluminense on loan. The Peruvian has just been called up for the Peruvian national team and needs to play. PAOK, as reported by friend Casagrande veins, it’s a posibility. But there are other options on the table”, He published through his Twitter account.
The 21-year-old Peruvian striker arrived in Fluminense this season, after the campaign he had with Sporting Cristal in 2019. He has added 475 minutes, with 11 games in the Cariosa Tournament and 6 in Serie A in Brazil. However, he has only scored 1 goal and has been a starter in a championship game.
Asian Champions League: COVID-19 causes removal of André Carrillo’s club
(ANSA) – MOSCOW, SEPTEMBER 24 – Mexico, Brazil and India have ordered about 200 million doses of the Russian Sputnik V vaccine against the new coronavirus. RDIF CEO Kiril Dmitriev said this, specifying that other orders are expected from seven countries in Latin America, the Middle East and Asia. “In the near future we will name the other seven countries. And they are big countries,” Dmitriev said in a virtual press conference hosted by Interfax. “For political reasons, EU countries and the US are trying to support their vaccines and prevent the purchase of the Russian vaccine,” he added. (HANDLE).
The Covid-19 Lancet Commission, created on July 9 and directed by the prestigious British medical journal of the same name – which emerged with the aim of helping governments, civil society and UN institutions to respond effectively to the pandemic – last week he presented his first report / statement for the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly.
The report, published on Monday, September 14, put on the table the importance of controlling the pandemic around the world – for now – through non-pharmaceutical interventions, pending an effective and safe vaccine; in addition to the need for healthcare professionalism, avoiding the “medical populism” that some politicians such as Donald Trump, in the United States, have addressed; Rodrigo Duterte, in the Philippines; or Jair Bolsonaro, in Brazil.
“We call on governments to prioritize advice from the public health professional community, work in cooperation with international agencies, and learn from the best practices of other nations. All countries must combat decisions that are based on rumors and misinformation. Leaders must desist from expressing personal points of view that are in disagreement with science, ”says the commission’s text, signed by more than 60 specialists from different areas, including only one Chilean: the former Minister of Finance of Sebastián Piñera, Felipe Larrain, current member of the UN Leadership Council for Sustainable Development.
However, the most striking is centered on an analysis that compares the dynamics of covid-19 during the month of August in a total of 91 countries that have sufficient statistics, in which Chile was ranked 80, at the bottom of the table.
The first to present the report was Gonzalo Bacigalupe, a Harvard health worker, researcher and professor at the University of Massachusetts, who noticed the complex scenario. “Don’t let anyone tell you stories. This is the world situation. Look where Chile is ”, he assured via Twitter.
The figure shows four measurements regarding the pandemic. The first measure is the incidence: the number of confirmed cases per million inhabitants per day, averaged over the 31 days of August. The second is the mortality rate, measured as deaths per million per day, averaged over the same period.
The third indicator is the number of covid-19 tests performed in August relative to the number of new cases in August, which functions as an indirect measure of the testing scale, as each new confirmed case potentially has dozens of close contacts (e.g., family members, co-workers, merchants), thus the number of tests per case it must be in the dozens (or greater).
Finally, the fourth measure is the effective average reproduction rate, indicating whether the epidemic was increasing or decreasing.
The detail of the last places:
The scale establishes 5 classifications according to the number of new cases per day per million inhabitants, as it is “the simplest measure of the virus transmission rate”.
At a low level, consider that a country is suppressing the virus if you register 5 or fewer new cases (as long as the testing rate is large, that is, at least 20 tests per new case).
Meanwhile, the following steps consider a country as a low transmission (10 or fewer new cases); moderate transmission, with 10 to 50 new cases; high transmission, between 50-100; Y very high transmission when they register indicators over 100.
Under said standard, Chile was ranked 80, with 95.1 daily cases per million inhabitants each day during August, with whose record it remained in the category of high transmission, on the verge of entering the worst category, only surpassed by Bolivia, Spain, Kuwuait, the United States, Argentina, Israel, Brazil, Bahrain, Colombia, Panama and the Maldives, who did remain rated as high transmission.
“This position is quite consistent with the reality of the country and with the number of deaths we have. The number of deaths in the pandemic, in any country in the world, is related to the number of infections, therefore in countries with a lot of contagion you expect to have a large number of deaths in parallel. We are among the top 10 countries in the number of deaths ”, José Miguel Bernucci, secretary general of the Medical College, underlined in conversation with BioBioChile.
Meanwhile, the exemplary countries in this indicator were Taiwan, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietman, China, Burma, Malaysia, New Zealand, Uganda, Togo, Pakistan, Latvia, Luxembourg, South Korea, Finland, Cuba and Rwanda.
Likewise, our country registered 3.1 deaths per million every day during August, a record that was only surpassed by 7 countries in the aforementioned measurement.
While, Chile registered 13.7 tests per case, a figure considered very low by the specialists in charge of the report; and in whose situation are most of the countries with high and very high transmission, “with less than 20 tests per new case or even less than 10 tests per new case.”
Although the Ministers of Health have said repeatedly – both Jaime Mañalich and Enrique París – that the local testing capacity was one of the highest at the continental level, the comparison shows a different scenario at the global level: Chile is not even close to the countries with the best record. Among the countries with low transmission, the closest are Luxembourg (30.6) and Pakistan (33.7), far from the figure for our country, while among that group the exorbitant case of New Zealand stands out, with 3,368 tests per case. While, the average of the exemplary countries reaches 511.5 examinations for each case.
“Unlike what the authorities have insistently said, our amount of testing is in the middle of the table worldwide. We are around 50th place and this study tells us that we have little relative to these countries. But if we compare ourselves to Latin America we have a good amount of testing, enough to make a good amount of diagnoses. It is not the best in the world, it has not yet served us for suppression management, but it is a good amount to know in what epidemiological reality we are, ”Bernucci stressed.
In sum, the figures show that 10 of the 19 countries with the best control are in the Asia Pacific, while 6 of the 11 with the worst record are from the Americas. In this context, the Lancet Commission report criticizes that countries “with high or very high transmission rates are not able to undertake sufficient preventive measures (masks, social distance, isolation, etc.) to control the pandemic”, which “may be controlled, as the countries that have largely suppressed it clearly show, ”even in low-income nations like Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam.
Even worse, the last indicator (effective reproduction rate, ERR) also worries. In simple terms, transmission is decreasing when the figure is less than 1 (R 1). In Chile scores 1.1, a discouraging figure that reveals that in August the transmission of the virus (and therefore the epidemic) continued to rise in the country.
Of course, this scenario is not only worrying for the local reality, since these numbers show that even the countries in control are vulnerable to new outbreaks.
“It takes us around 4 to 5 months to change the strategy. In moving from the strategy of controlled progressive contagion, as proposed with the former minister, to a strategy of cutting the chain of contagion through traceability. Those four months left us in one of the highest countries in the world and today, despite changing our strategy, we are still very weak in traceability. We are very backward and the only way to suppress viral circulation is by strengthening this traceability “Bernucci remarked.
More reliability is lacking
Meanwhile, the report poses to the countries the need to advance in the reliability of the data, considering that they take only 91 of the almost 200 existing countries.
This is due to the fact that the limitations of the data continue to hinder the adequate measurement and, therefore, the control of the pandemic, as a result of insufficient tests, insufficient reports and different and changing definitions of deaths from covid-19.
Specifically, according to the report, data comparisons show that most cases of covid-19, and in particular cases that are asymptomatic or mild, are undermeasured and underestimated. “Comparisons of reported COVID-19 deaths and excess mortality in a country during the same period compared to previous years imply that many COVID-19 deaths are not being reported as such,” they noted.
Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said in his speech to the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday that the tribes in the Amazon rainforest are to blame for the large-scale wildfires in the area. Radical-right Bolsonaro also accused the media of spreading panic about the corona epidemic.
In the pre-recorded speech to the virtual session of the General Assembly, Bolsonaro rejected international criticism of his environmental policy. He was also not served by criticism of his approach to the second most serious corona outbreak in the world.
Bolsonaro, who denied in mid-August that fires were raging in the Amazon at all, argued against ranchers burning down rainforest to create pasture, arguing that the rainforest moisture prevents forest fires from spreading further.
“The fires are occurring more or less in the same places, in the east of the forest, where farmers and Indians burn their fields in already deforested areas,” the president also said. The head of Brazil’s leading tribal organization warns that Bolsonaro is lying to the world. “We must condemn the political disaster that is destroying the environment and our future,” she said.
Bolsonaro, who has repeatedly downplayed the corona epidemic in his country, also noted the more than 137,000 COVID-19 deaths in his country. He accused the media of “politicizing” the corona epidemic and causing panic by telling people to stay at home. That caused “social chaos”, according to Bolsonaro, against which his government “bravely” took emergency measures, the president said.
“Globo’s billionaire schemes!” and “real corruption is with the Marinho family!”, exclaimed Jair Bolsonaro on Thursday on his social networks. To illustrate, the President of the Republic attached a news report from his ally TV Record, owned by Edir Macedo, bishop of the IURD, about alleged links between the family that controls Grupo Globo and Sérgio Cabral, former governor of Rio de Janeiro serving time. imprisonment, and irregularities in obtaining broadcasting rights for the city’s Olympic Games in 2016.
It was just the last episode of an open war between two of Brazil’s greatest powers: the Planalto Palace, occupied by far-right President Bolsonaro, and Globo, the largest and most influential communication network of the South American giant. A war that has already crossed the limits of politics and reached two of the main products of the channel, soap operas and football.
Policy first: last month, after the arrest of Dario Messer, considered the biggest “doleiro” (dollar dealer in the parallel market) in Brazil, was reported by the magazine Look that, in a plea to the police, the criminal had affirmed, without proof, that the Marinho family, owner of Globo, was among his biggest clients.
THE National Newspaper, Globo’s main news program, echoed the matter, highlighting that no evidence was presented and adding a denial from the Marinho family itself.
But on social media Bolsonaro surfed the wave of Messer’s denunciation without mercy: he calculated, on his own, how much the “money changer” had spent on Marinho – according to him, about 1.75 billion reais.
The well articulated supporters of the Government then launched a hashtag under the name #rachadinhadaglobo. In an allusion to the “crack”, the practice of diverting salaries of deputies’ aides into the pocket, of senator Flávio Bolsonaro, the first-born of the president, in his office. Flávio and dozens more of Bolsonaro’s family and friends are suspected of benefiting from a millionaire scheme for embezzling public money that even served to buy real estate in cash.
Mandetta and Moro
At the height of his rejection of the president, following the denial of the gravity of the covid-19 pandemic and the resignations of ministers Luiz Henrique Mandetta, of Health, and Sérgio Moro, of Justice, he went to the program Fantastic, from Globo, that the first reacted to the controversial dismissal. And it was at National Newspaper, from the same broadcaster, that the second presented evidence, through a message from the WhatsApp application, that Bolsonaro had interfered with the Federal Police, a case under investigation.
By that time, Globo, like most media outlets in Brazil, reported the resounding “pots” [protestos barulhentos às janelas] against the president’s failure to combat covid-19 in most state capitals in Brazil. Bolsonaro publicly challenged Globo to also show the “pots” in his favor. And Globo registered them, stressing, however, that they were in a much smaller quantity.
In a communication to the country of September 7, Independence Day, Bolsonaro praised the coup that resulted in the implantation of the military dictatorship from 1964 to 1985, generating the usual criticisms of the majority of the media. But the president did so by citing written words in an editorial in the newspaper Or Balloon of the time, by Roberto Marinho, the group’s patriarch – the Globo group, for more than once, has already admitted the errors of assessment made in that editorial.
The clashes between Globo and politicians are not unprecedented – the governments of the Workers’ Party, especially Lula da Silva but also Dilma Rousseff, complained, and continue to complain, about the treatment given to them by the Marinho family group . The broadcaster even made a MEA culpa because, in a debate recorded between Lula and Collor de Mello at the time of the first post-dictatorship presidential election, he edited the images in a way that favored the second, which would end up being elected.
But, for Maurício Stycer, a television specialist for the UOL group and a columnist for the newspaper Folha de S. Paulo, “this Government, more than any other in the democratic regime, seeks to confront the media“.” It is such an aggressive attitude, in some situations, that it calls into question the Government’s own intention. Globo, being the largest communication company in the country, is being a preferred target, but it is not the only one “, he told DN.
In an interview with the program Life Wheel, from TV Cultura, the station’s former program director, José Bonifácio Sobrinho, said that “the war is not against the press, it is not against TV, it is against democracy”.
“Because these people are only fighting television and the press because therein lies the pillar for the defense of democracy, so, what I think is that it is a pity that broadcasters have somehow accepted this game, because it is a dirty political game, a way of provoking to appear and develop a cult of unacceptable personality, because it ends as we have seen in our “dear” Adolf Hitler, who was a long time ago, thank God, “said Boni, as he is known.
The war, however, went beyond politics. In Bonsucesso, one of Globo’s recent soap operas, the “bad guy”, played by actor Armando Babaioff, used dialogues “anti-LGBT” and “ideological antipathists” in an explicit association between the villain of the plot and the standard discourse of government supporters.
The most conservative scholarship holders on behavioral issues – such as the evangelical segment, for example – even boycotted Globo soap operas for having kisses gay and to advise Record serials, usually inspired by Old Testament passages.
Still in the soap operas, these government supporters did not hesitate to take advantage of a new Globo policy to attack it: after the channel decided not to renew the contracts of established veteran actors, such as those of the couple Tarcísio Meira and Glória Menezes or that of Antônio Fagundes, Bolsonar social networks were invaded by hashtags like #globofalida and others.
Stycer, however, contextualizes the attitude of the communication group. “For decades, Globo has imitated the policy of major Hollywood studios in the past and maintained a large cast under a fixed contract. The new times have forced it to rationalize the area of human resources and give up these old contracts. general in this medium, artists are hired for work. “
“For anyone who saw Globo as a ‘mother’, without a doubt, this new policy is a disappointment, a shock,” continues the expert. “Veterans with four or five decades of services rendered are not having their contracts renewed. But it seems to me an obvious and necessary adjustment in search of a new position in the market. Today, the company faces competition not only in open TV, but also in Pay TV and, more importantly, in the streaming.”
The effects of Globo’s new contract policy had negative effects beyond the bolsonarista bubble and reached even government critics: artists, fans and companies fed chains on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, with messages asking for more respect and work from the actors veterans of Brazil under the slogans “I want veterans on TV”.
On the lawn
The war also came to football. It is, moreover, on the lawns that the conflict between the Government and Globo is, in addition to being political or social, above all economic.
On June 17, Bolsonaro recreated the Ministry of Communications and appointed Fábio Faria, a federal deputy who is the son-in-law of Sílvio Santos, owner of SBT, a television that, like Record de Edir Macedo, competes with Globo.
The very next day, Planalto published a provisional measure that gives the owner of the house the right to sell the broadcasting rights – a resolution that harms Globo and benefits SBT.
Flamengo, whose president had met with Bolsonaro during those days, reached an agreement with SBT and the channel broadcast the final of the Rio state championship between the team then still trained by Jorge Jesus and rival Fluminense – a game that, at the start , would pass in prime time for viewers in Rio.
The same SBT, which, before Bolsonaro, practically did not even have a sports editor, came to hold the rights to the Copa Libertadores de América, the South American equivalent of the Champions League.
The radical change in the distribution of Government funds to the channels explains the success of SBT. Data from the Presidency’s Communication Secretariat, linked to the Ministry of Communications, show that, in 2017, two years before the inauguration of the current government, Globo received 23.31 million reais from federal advertising, and SBT 11.92 million, based on audiences. In the first half of 2019, with Bolsonaro in the Planalto, the blog Lei em Campo counted, Globo received 2.65 million and SBT, 6.62 million. As a percentage, the Marinho family channel held 48.52% of advertising funds in 2017, now has a mere 16.38%, while Sílvio Santos’ television jumped from 24.8% in 2017, to 41.01% now.
On the Terra portal, columnist Jeff Benício argues, however, that both Globo and Bolsonaro benefit from the war. “The president has become a controversy machine with daily, uninterrupted production. It helps sell newspapers and magazines, generates millions of clicks on sites informative and increases the audience for TV programs. Globo is the main beneficiary of this blunt style of the chief executive. Verborragic, the president provides hot news to the channel’s news. “
On the other hand, he affirms, “from Bolsonaro, there is no lack of warlike statements, surprising gestures, controversial attitudes, provocations and debauchery. The viewer runs to turn on the TV and check out the news that he reads on social networks. , the public also seeks a response from the channel – seen by the president as his number one enemy in media – to the direct criticisms made by Bolsonaro. That is why the boycott of the ‘anti-Globo’ never worked. Even those who hate the Marinho family broadcaster usually spy on the National Newspaper in order to later speak ill of the journalism of the house. “
A Brazilian economic newspaper warned about consequences that the Argentine monetary issue could have with Miguel Pesceat the head of central bank. Is that Argentina asked the Brazilian Mint buy him 400 million bills of 1000 pesos. This production that would start from next month and that would last until March of next year, would cost $ 20.6 million, which is equivalent 1.63 billion at the official exchange rate.
Faced with the policies of National government, bycoronavirus pandemic, the Argentine Mint does not have the capacity to absorb domestic demand printing, although the two plants, the one located in Retiro and the exCiccone, work triple shifts. According to IProfessional, in the last month they put into circulation 50 million bills of 1000 pesos, 2 million 500 bills, 12 million 200 banknotes, and 540 out of 100 bills.
Bolsonaro, who became infected by the virus, made the statements during a meeting with rural producers, whom he thanked for continuing to work during the most critical months of a pandemic that already leaves 134,935 deaths and 4.4 million cases in the country.
“You did not stop during the pandemic, you did not enter that lazy talk of ‘stay home and the economy we see later’. That’s for the weak“said Jair Bolsonaro during a ceremony in the municipality of Sorriso, in the state of Mato Grosso (center-west).
“We cannot cower against what we cannot avoid. Agribusiness prevented Brazil will enter into economic collapse, “added the leader of the Brazilian extreme right, who did not mention the fires that have devastated part of the Brazilian Pantanal, one of the largest wetlands in the world and shared by the states of Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul. .
As on previous occasions, neither Jair Bolsonaro not even the ten participants who attended the event, including several of its ministers, wore a mask, despite the fact that the levels of contagion still remain high in the country.
The South American giant added 829 deaths and the total deaths amounted to 134,935, while eThe number of confirmed cases amounted to 4,455,386, according to the bulletin released this Thursday by the Ministry of Health.
The pandemic has given a slight truce in recent weeks with a timid improvement in the number of deaths and daily cases, but specialists fear a second wave due to the relaxation of social distancing measures.
The images of crowded beaches, parks and bars have been repeated in recent days in various parts of Brazil, especially with the arrival of good weather, and Bolsonaro himself has caused crowds on his trips to various cities in the country.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the president has downplayed the severity of the coronavirus, which has already caused more than 30 million infections around the world, and came to qualify on several occasions the “flu” disease.

‘Living space’: In this program, Dr. Elmer Huerta explains this because the use of masks protects from infections and prevents contagion. In addition, he explained the phenomenon of variolization.
Thousands of people in Facebook and others social networks have not been able to help shedding some tears upon learning the moving story of ‘Negao’, a dog who has been waiting for his owner in a Brazilian hospital for more than 10 years, without knowing that he has already died.
The loyalty of dogs has no limits, and this is proven by ‘Negao’, a dog that maintains the hope that its owner will return. However, the man for whom he waits will never return, as he died more than 10 years ago at the Nossa Senhora de Lourdes Hospital, in Brazil.
Through a post on Facebook, hundreds of people have been able to know the moving history of the dog that to date looks aged by the passage of time. According to the hospital workers, he remains waiting day and night.
“Its owner came here about 10 years ago and passed away. Since then, the dog has stayed with us, ”María Dilma Rosa, a social worker at this hospital, told the local media G1 Globo.
The health personnel baptized the defenseless dog with the name of ‘Negao’ and that is how he is called by all the relatives and patients who enter and leave the Brazilian hospital. Hundreds of people in social networks appreciated the care and displays of affection that the stray dog.
Two girls, best friends, BrunetteVelasquez, 18 years old, e MoniqueMedeiros, 19, lost their lives while trying to take a selfie at the top of the Salto Caveiras waterfall in Lages, in Brazil. According to the first reconstruction of the media local, one lost her balance and the other slipped in an attempt to save her.
The tragedy occurred last Sunday: shortly after publishing on social the last photo together, the two girls died after a flight of about 30 meters into the void. Bruna was pronounced dead on the spot before rescuers arrived, while Monique lost her battle for life after arriving at the hospital. The doctors could not do anything to save her, the head injury sustained following the fall was too severe.

The last farewell to the two young women was held in a church in Lages, their hometown, amid the tears and desperation of relatives and friends. DmitriRue, owner of a fast food restaurant where Monique worked while studying to be a nurse, told the Brazilian media: ” She started out as a cashier before working with me in running the place. When I got sick, she helped me and basically ran the business herself. ” Rescuers said the area where the two girls had ventured was off limits to visitors.
The number of deaths in the world related to the coronavirus has exceeded 930,000, according to data from the American University Johns Hopkins. Total infections are over 29.4 million. The most affected country in the world in absolute terms remains the United States, with 195,500 deaths and nearly 6.6 million cases. India and Brazil follow. 4000 cases in the UK, Johnson v. Lockdown bis.
New record of infections in Israel: in the last 24 hours, according to data from the Ministry of Health, 5,523 have been compared to an increase in swabs which have reached 55,734 tests. The infection rate stands at 9.9%. There are currently 42,862 active cases with 535 serious patients and 138 of these on ventilation. The victims remain at 1,147. Today is the last day of school, as the government has established, while the 3-week national lockdown will start from 2 pm on Friday.
India has passed the threshold of five million cases of coronavirus, with the pandemic spreading at an ever faster rate across the Asian country. The second most populous nation on the planet, which registered one million new infections in just eleven days, now has 5.02 million cases, just behind the United States which has 6.6 million.
The Robert Koch Institut in Berlin has included the Austrian capital Vienna among the coronavirus risk areas. The same institute announced it on its web page tonight. The criterion for inserting a locality among the areas at risk is the exceeding of 50 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants. In Vienna, there were 113 new cases per 100,000 inhabitants, reports Faz. This is the reason for the listing, which also includes Budapest.
Coronavirus infections surge to almost 4,000 more in the last 24 hours in the UK, a record since early May against the backdrop of a daily test level over 220,000. This is certified by the data released today by the government, also reporting an increase in daily deaths (20) and a slight but constant increase in hospitalizations in the ward or in intensive care (900 and 115 total patients, at the moment, in the entire country). Data in front of which Prime Minister Boris Johnson, during a hearing before the coordination of parliamentary committees in Westminster, assures however that “everything in our power” will be done to avoid a second national lockdown potentially “disastrous for the economy. “.
The surge of coronavirus infections in Malta appears unabated. The superintendent for public health, Charmaine Gauci, for the first time spoke of a “serious situation” as reported by the Times of Malta because the virus has entered some homes for the elderly, but above all there are more and more ‘isolated cases’ , a sign that containment is not working. In the last 24 hours a new all-time record has been reached, with 106 positives out of 2,470 tests in a population of just half a million inhabitants (1/120 of Italy). The two main teachers’ unions (MTU and Upe) have asked for the postponement of the physical reopening of schools scheduled for 28 September and are threatening strikes.
Strong increase in infections in Slovenia, where in the last 24 hours there have been 123 coronavirus cases, a new daily record since the beginning of the epidemic. Evidently contributing to this is the progressive increase in the number of tests carried out, which since yesterday were 3,123. The total number of positive cases has so far stood at 3,945, while the number of deaths has stood at 135, and there have been no victims for covid-19 for a couple of weeks. There are 61 patients in hospital to date, 11 of whom are in intensive care.
There are 2,981 coronavirus cases recorded in the last 24 hours in Iran, the highest since the beginning of June. The figure brings the total of confirmed infections in the country to 410,334. There are 179 new victims, for a total of 23,632 confirmed deaths. The patients admitted to intensive care amounted to 3,827, while those recovered grew to 352,019. The total tests carried out are 3,641,581. The spokeswoman for the Iranian Ministry of Health Sima Lari reported this in her daily bulletin, specifying that 13 out of 31 provinces remain classified as “red”, ie at high risk of infection, including Tehran.
Imperial College London reported coronavirus contagiousness rate dropped to 0.9 in Brazil, which today confirms General Eduardo Pazuello as Minister of Health, who had held the interim position since May. According to the renowned British university, in the South American country, 90 people are now infected with Covid-19, which means that the Rt index has dropped to its lowest level since April, when it was 1.81. According to the latest bulletin released yesterday by the state health secretariats, there are currently 4,382,683 confirmed cases and 113,119 deaths in Brazil. Meanwhile, the government of Jair Bolsonaro has decided to increase the number of volunteers who will test with the vaccine of the University of Oxford from five thousand to ten thousand.
In the US, at least seven people have died in connection with a coronavirus epidemic erupted after a wedding reception in Maine. This was reported by the Associated Press agency. The Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention reported that over 175 infections are linked to the party, which took place in August, and six of the deceased did not even attend the wedding. The state authorities, which have registered less than 5,000 cases of coronavirus since March, have drawn the line of infections and concluded that the virus has traveled hundreds of kilometers from the reception at the Big Moose Inn in Millinocke.
The coronavirus vaccine could be ready within three to four weeks: US President Donald Trump said in a town hall in Philadelphia. If so, the vaccine would arrive before the US elections on November 3.
