KOMPAS.com – World Health Organization ( WHO) has warned the world about “vaccine nationalism”.
The warning is addressed to rich countries that if they keep the care to themselves, they cannot hope to stay safe if poor countries remain exposed.
Reported The Guardian (7/8/2020), when cases of Covid-19 infection surpassed 19 million on Friday (7/8/2020), WHO Head Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said it would be in the interests of rich countries to help each country protect itself from the disease .
“Vaccine nationalism is not good, it will not help us,” Tedros told the Aspen Security Forum in the US, via video link from WHO headquarters in Geneva.
“In order for the world to recover more quickly, it must recover together, because this is a globalized world where economies are intertwined with one another. Some parts of the world or some countries cannot be safe and recovering shelters,” he continued.
According to him, the damage caused by Covid-19 could be reduced if the countries that had the funds were committed to this.
Meanwhile, several countries are racing to find a vaccine for corona virus, where the disease has killed more than 700,000 people worldwide.

A study in the United States said 300,000 people in America could die in December if major city leaders failed to promote further measures such as wearing masks.
Additionally, a team at the University of Washington said 70,000 lives could have been saved if more people wore masks during the pandemic.
“We see rollercoaster in the us. It seems that people wear masks and stay socially distant more often as infections increase, then after a while when infections decrease, people become complacent, “said Director of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), Dr Christopher JL Murray.
So far, more than 159,000 people have reportedly died in the US from Covid-19, but new daily cases have decreased in recent weeks.
IHME said infections fell in former epicenter such as Arizona, California, Florida and Texas, although there were increases in Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon and Virginia.
Not only that, more than 1 million Africans have been infected with millions of viruses that continue to spread across the continent.

The government’s response to Covid-19 South Africa has been tainted by allegations of corruption surrounding the historic US $ 26 billion economic aid package, as the country with the fifth largest number of Covid-19 cases in the world.
This figure represents 53 percent of all infection cases in the African continent and the fifth highest in the world.
In addition, South Africa has the continent’s highest death toll at 9,604, followed by Egypt with 4,951 deaths, and Algeria with 1,273 deaths.

KOMPAS.com – A new study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that the patient was confirmed Covid-19 but asymptomatic or asymptomatic (used to be called OTG) is just as contagious as a symptomatic patient.
The research team also recommends that asymptomatic cases be isolated to prevent the spread of the virus.
This conclusion was obtained after a research team led by Seungjae Lee from Soonchunhyang University College of Medicine analyzed swab samples from 303 people isolated in Cheonan Antara.
They are 22-36 years old with two-thirds of them being female.
Of the 303 people, 193 were symptomatic (symptomatic) while 110 were asymptomatic (asymptomatic) when their swab samples were taken on March 6-26, 2020.
Then out of 110 people who were initially asymptomatic, 21 people later became symptomatic, while 89 people remained asymptomatic until the end.
During isolation, the participants were sampled for swabs every eight days.
When comparing samples of patients over this duration, the experts found that patients who were completely asymptomatic were positive for Covid-19 up to 17 days or 2.5 days earlier than symptomatic patients.
However, the amount of virus they carry in the nose, throat and lungs is as much as in symptomatic patients.
In addition, the viral load in asymptomatic patients was found to decrease longer than in symptomatic patients.
They were also found to continue releasing the virus (viral shedding) or were still contagious for up to 30 days since they were first confirmed positive for Covid-19.
These findings reinforce the notion that asymptomatic or asymptomatic Covid-19 patients can still transmit Covid-19, although it remains unclear whether the viruses they release are as infectious as the viruses released by symptomatic patients.

This research was conducted by a doctor from the Indiana University School of Medicine and a group of COVID-19 survivors from the Survivor Corps group with a media poll on Facebook.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have identified 17 persistent symptoms of COVID-19. The team’s survey surveyed more than 1500 patients and found 98 possible symptoms, according to Dr. Natalie Lambert, a research professor at Indiana University’s school of medicine.
The new symptoms identified by them include severe nerve pain, difficulty concentrating, difficulty sleeping, blurred vision and hair loss, Lambert said in a written statement.
Plus the symptoms identified by the CDC include fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headaches, loss of taste and smell, sore throat, nasal congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting and diarrhea which may appear between 2- 14 days after exposure to the virus.
According to the survey, more than a quarter of reported symptoms (26.5%) were painful. It includes the same symptoms identified by the CDC, plus heartburn, back pain and chest pain.
The remaining symptoms are painless, for example hair loss, which nearly a third of respondents experience. Other symptoms in the survey filled with respondents included memory problems, anxiety, dizziness and blurred vision.
Wiku emphasized that we keep each other together as conveyed by the World Health Organization (WHO) in the Emergency Committee COVID-9 meeting on July 31, 2020. The meeting indicates that the world has entered its 6th month since WHO first declared a public health emergency status.
“WHO continues to declare that the pandemic is a health crisis that occurs once in 100 years. Many countries think they have passed the worst conditions and have reached a fairly safe condition,” he said.
“However, now as we can see, other countries are experiencing another wave of outbreaks (the second wave of COVID-19) with an increasing number of cases and deaths. The effects of this pandemic will still be felt for decades to come.”
WHO together with countries in the world are also very active in exploring the implementation of research on the COVID-19 vaccine treatment. Even so, WHO acknowledges that vaccines are a long-term solution, especially since the process towards production is still long.
“Don’t wait for drugs and vaccines. Because we are also racing against time for prevention or prevention. The most important key in reducing the number of cases and deaths is back to health protocols,” said Wiku.
“Maybe we have changed the message, namely not to be lazy about washing our hands, changing clothes when we get home, and not taking off or removing masks when outside the house. Then discipline to keep your distance and stay away from the crowd.”
“Mara”, an old female elephant born in India, set out on a trip, Saturday, from Buenos Aires to one of the animal shelters in Brazil, where she will have a better life, as announced by the Argentine capital city.
Mara, who ranges between 50 and 54 years old, spent the first part of her life as a circus animal, then arrived in 1995 to a zoo in Buenos Aires, which has since turned into an ecological park where these elephants lived.
“Mara” began its 2,000-kilometer journey, which was scheduled since January, despite the outbreak of the Coronavirus. A special protocol has been put in place to protect them and the crews accompanying them.
The “Mara” weighs 5.5 tons, is 5 meters long, 2 meters wide, and 3 meters high. She eats a ton of vegetables, fodder and sugar cane every day.
On Saturday, during an operation that lasted nearly three hours in the eco-park located in the Palermo region of Buenos Aires, “Mara” was placed in a huge wooden box specially constructed for this and inserted into a truck using a crane.
The truck set off at around 6 pm (9:00 pm GMT). Its final destination is Chapada de Guimaraes in Mato Grosso, a state in central-western Brazil, which includes an elephant reserve of 1,200 hectares, where Mara will live the last days of her life.
The trip is expected to last between four and five days, according to the statement issued by the municipality of Buenos Aires.
The government will provide a stimulus in the form of direct cash assistance (BLT) to workers earning less than Rp5 million to help them cope with the economic pressures of the corona. Minister of State-Owned Enterprises (BUMN) Erick Thohir reveal the criteria for workers who will receive the BLT and the amount.
For the criteria, he said BLT would be given to non-PNS and BUMN workers who were actively registered with BPJS Ketenagakerjaan.
Judging by these criteria, there are 13.8 million employees who will get a corona BLT.
“As many as 13.8 million non-PNS and BUMN workers who are actively registered with BPJS Ketenagakerjaan with contributions below IDR 150,000 per month or equivalent to salaries below IDR 5 million per month,” said Erick in a statement quoted on Thursday (6/8). .
For the amount, Erick said that BLT will be given in the amount of IDR 600 thousand per month. The BLT will be given for 4 months and will be directly transferred to the account of each worker to avoid abuse.
According to him, this program is being finalized so that it can be implemented by the Ministry of Manpower in September 2020. Meanwhile, the Ministry of Finance ensures that assistance will also be provided to workers with salaries under IDR 5 million who are not registered as participants of the BPJS Ketenagakerjaan program.
Special Staff to the Minister of Finance Yustinus Prastowo said that the scheme related to the distribution of BLT to this class of workers was still being discussed by the Task Force for Handling Corona Virus and National Economic Recovery.
