“We still have 12 days …”

The figures for new coronavirus contaminations in Belgium have been encouraging in Belgium since the start of the week. They are in fact declining and the measures imposed by the National Security Council on July 27 and in Antwerp seem to be bearing fruit. But the fight is far from over.

In a long interview with our colleagues from Laatste Nieuws, interfederal coronavirus spokesperson Steven Van Gucht reminds us that it is essential to continue efforts: “We are far from the end of the second wave. All we can see is that we have probably reached the peak of it, it just means that we have come halfway, and that we must continue to respect the rules ”, explains- he does.

“Because if we drop everything, the numbers will start to rise again. The numbers have to keep falling before we can think about easing certain measures, like the social bubble. Acting on this bubble would spoil all the efforts already made, because the virus is still circulating intensely, ”he adds.

September 1 is approaching …

Steven Van Gucht recalls that, in some corners of Belgium, there are more than 100 cases of coronavirus per 100,000 inhabitants: “It is much higher than at the beginning of July. These numbers must go down. Especially with the reopening of schools approaching. It’s an element that adds pressure. We will take this as carefully as possible, and no, children are not major contaminators, but the reopening of schools will increase the number of interactions and give the virus the opportunity to gain strength. We have to start the new school year with the lowest possible numbers ”.

The spokesperson would like to see figures similar to those known at the beginning of June, which were around 85 new cases per day, but he does not believe it: “We are running out of time. September 1 is approaching. We still have 12 days to try to get the numbers as low as possible ”.

dying Zhanna Friske came to the salon to do the last hairstyle

Since the death of Jeanne Friske five years. The singer died from brain cancer June 15, 2015. Three months before his departure, the actress last seen with his close friend and stylist Vlad Lisova. A dying star came to him to do last in my life the hair.

Vlad Lisovets openly talked about his last meeting with Zhanna Friske. They were friends for many years, and met when the singer came to the “Brilliant”. The stylist worked with the girls, responsible for their images.

When Jeanne was engaged in solo career, she continued to chat with Vlad. Of course, he knew about her illness. Three months before death, the artist had realized what was happening to her. It was the hardest treatment, just returned from America. “Then she came to herself, for a short period, we all cheered… and That’s when Jeanne decided to come to the salon to get a haircut,” said the stylist.

While Vlad gently suggested to her friend: “Maybe home? Maybe in a closed space?”. But he sharply said, “No, don’t.”

According to him, she came to herself. Administrators, clients were all in some kind of shock at the sight of Pink. “By the time Joan lost weight, but still was great, had a limp, walked with a cane. I ran out to her car, wanted a hand, but she replied: “No, I myself.” I was dumbfounded,” continues his confession Lisovets.

Jeanne was in the salon, everyone smiled and said Hello as if nothing had happened. Then asked, where her to sit down. “I gathered strength and asked: “Jeanne, what can I cut?” And she answered: “Yes, without a difference. I still don’t see anything”“- quoted by stylist website

This situation, as admitted Vlad, he divided his life into before and after. When she left the salon, had a terrible tantrum.

“It was awful. I cut his girlfriend, who sees only a silhouette, which has virtually no hair… can You imagine? What force will it was. I’ve seen other people with tears looked at us, because everybody understood the situation, and everyone could see horror on their faces. In the head spun this phrase: “anyway I don’t see anything”. It was not said with self-pity, it was in our style, so cynical, ridiculous, stupid”, he concluded.


the map of the stages unveiled

As always, the information concerning the trace 2020 have started to leak the day before the official announcement of the route by the director of the Tour de France, Christian Prudhomme, has confirmed on Tuesday October 15, the essence of what we already knew. Namely, a 107th tour de France is concentrated in the southern half of France, which then leaves it again on the affected the north-west, large earth of cycling.

→TO READ. Tour de France 2020 : dates, milestones… all of the information about this edition

Already in 2019, the choice to move the pack almost exclusively in the eastern half after leaving Brussels had been to cringe in the middle of cycling. But the choice of a large departure in Nice, the Saturday, August 29, 2020, has led the organisers to brave the criticism and take a profile 100 % southern. This is to comply with the new order imposed by the company ASO, owner of the race, concerned about the beginning of the disaffection of the public for the great loop.

→ Death of Raymond Poulidor, the most popular of the champions

Only solution for the part of the organizers to maintain the interest, multiply the departures abroad (this will be the case in 2021, read below) or to stack the steps of the high and medium mountain, which now focus the attention of the spectators along the roads and tv channels. Given the point of departure southern, they had only two choices cardinals possible to build the first stages of the great loop : the north and the west. The roads to the east and south leading to Italy or… in the sea.

The course due north, would have defused the suspense for the vital last week of the race. They have therefore chosen to draw a diagonal between Nice, the Southern Alps and the south of the Massif central. The course then delves into the Pyrenees, which will include this year fewer steps than usual. Then, the riders retraverseront France from west to east across the north of the Auvergne, before heading out in the Alps after a stage to Lyon, a city vital step in the editions of the years 1950 to 1990, but that was rare lately.

The surprise of the chief, the new col de la Loze

Each Tower to now include a find, the surprise of the chief is this year above Meribel (Savoie), the city that will host (with Courchevel), the world ski championships in 2023. This is the col de la Loze, climb unique and spectacular designed for the use of the bicycles, above the station. “It is a green lane, closed to traffic for motor vehicles, except those delegated in the ski area “, explained to AFP the mayor of Meribel, Thierry Monin.

As is now usual, the last week of the race will be entirely devoted to the Alps of the north, with a foray over the fearsome col Grand Colombier (Ain), followed a few days later a passage now obliged by the famous Board of Beautiful Girls, a training ground favorite of the local Thibaut Pinot, and the only exception to the colour of the south of the course. The Franc-Comtois has already announced his participation in the Tour 2020, after his discomfiture of 2019 he was forced to abandon two days before the arrival, so that he seemed to be well on your way to the podium.

In 2021, a path more flat from Copenhagen

If the climbers have pride of place on the Towers in 2019 and 2020, they may become disillusioned in 2021. The share given to the mountain, which is very important on these two editions will be reduced. Next year, we will move on to a new sequence. We know very well that we will return to the course is further conventional, in the plain and on land which is moderately hilly “, explains the race director Thierry Gouvenou. The site of the Grand depart 2021 is set in Copenhagen. Gold, stresses the head of the race, “the departure from Denmark, that is three days flat “.

By then, the lovers of cycling hope for 2020 is a thought worthy of 2019, one of the editions most spectacular of these last thirty years. With a kid, a colombian 22 years, Egan Bernal, on the highest step of the podium. A Julian Alaphilippe in yellow on the half of the course. For 2020, a victory long-awaited since 1985 (Bernard Hinault) of a Frenchman on the Champs-Élysées, will be the most beautiful of bouquets.

Nadezhda Babkina sang Victory Day, despite voice problems after illness

Hope Babkina only recently discharged from the hospital after a serious illness. The 70-year-old singer was hospitalized with severe pneumonia. And although the tests did not show in her coronavirus, friends of the artist are sure that she became a victim of a pandemic. Nadezhda Georgievna spent several days in a coma, on a ventilator, with a pipe in her throat. After such a procedure, the voice is restored far from immediately – it would seem that there is no time for singing. But Babkina did not break the long tradition and on May 9 sang the song “Victory Day” for fans. She shared the video on Instagram.

– Happy Victory Day, friends! – congratulated the artist subscribers.

The singer’s voice after illness has not yet gained full strength, but her colleagues at the Russian Song Theater came to her aid. Together they sang the famous hit in honor of the Great Victory. In the general sonorous chorus, Nadezhda Georgievna’s voice sounding with a slight hoarse sound is easily guessed.

The artist filmed the video in her house near Moscow, where she wakes up after discharge from the hospital.

“About 80% of the lungs were affected … Everything covered with film and dragged on there: it’s such an infection, it manifests itself very quickly and starts to work,” Babkina told of her illness.

Before discharge, computed tomography showed that Nadezhda Georgievna still affected 40% of the lungs. During rehabilitation, doctors prescribed her a special course of treatment (pills and injections) and breathing exercises. Babkin goes to the nearby Lapino hospital for procedures. By the way, another star patient who underwent coronavirus, Stas, was also treated in it. Mikhailov.

According to doctors, it can take a long time to restore the voice after such a disease: after a coronavirus and mechanical ventilation, it may not be able to listen to the patient for a long time, it sounds dull and hoarse.

– This is due to a change in the mucous membrane of the respiratory tract and cough. A prolonged cough has always been considered one of the risk factors for the formation of voice disturbance, ”saidKP»Phonator Ekaterina Osipenko. – How big the risk is depends on the severity of the patient’s condition, his presence on the ventilator. Patients who underwent tracheotomy – an operation to install a tracheotomy tube for long-term mechanical ventilation, also have a risk of voice changes in the future.

Happy Victory Day, friends! @rpfolk # Nadezhdababkina #Russian song #HymnWinning
