In neighboring Poland, like almost everywhere in the world, the corona numbers are skyrocketing. Now President Duda is also caught. According to official information, the head of state is doing well. Meanwhile, the corona rules are being tightened.
According to official information, Poland’s President Andrzej Duda has tested positive for the corona virus. The President is doing well, said State Secretary in the presidential office, Blazej Spychalski. Duda had himself tested for the corona virus on Friday, Spychalski wrote on Twitter.
Poland recently recorded a record high in new infections with the corona virus. Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki announced the classification of the entire country as a “red zone” on Friday. In Poland, with its 38 million inhabitants, 13,632 new corona cases were reported on Friday.
Due to the strong spread of the virus, Prime Minister Morawiecki announced the return to online lessons for all students from the fourth grade. Morawiecki also asked everyone over the age of 70 to stay at home. Last week he had already called on citizens to work in the home office.
On Saturday last week, the government in Warsaw declared half of the country a “red zone”. From this Saturday, a mask is required in all public places throughout Poland. Restaurants, cafés and pubs are only allowed to offer out-of-home service. Fitness clubs and swimming pools are also closed. Weddings are prohibited and the number of people who can gather in shops, public transport and church services is strictly limited.
Due to the significant increase in new corona infections in Poland, the national stadium in Warsaw is also being converted into a corona hospital, as the pandemic has brought the health system to the brink of collapse.
The Ministry of Health informs that while in a restaurant or bar, the face mask can be removed when sitting at your table, eating and drinking. On the other hand, when going to place an order, waiting in line or just moving around the room, a face mask is a must.
☝️ From today face masks need to be used more widely. We explain in more detail about catering places ⬇️ ❓ 🥣 Or …
Meanwhile, websites show that people share suggestions on which shops, cafes and other public places can be entered without a face mask or, conversely, where the situation is monitored by the police.
It has already been reported that with the continuing rapid increase in the incidence of Covid-19, the number of people allowed in private and public events will be reduced, as well as the use of face masks will have to be increased, the government decided on Friday, October 23.
As Covid-19 also spreads indoors, in places where public events or economic services take place, the number of people who can gather indoors from 500 to 300 will be reduced from Monday.
The use of face masks in public places will also be expanded, providing that they are used not only in places where the number of people is not limited, but in all public places, including where people are in fixed, personalized seating. Masks will have to be used in both economic and public service areas.
As it is expected that not enough will be achieved by 6 November to prevent the uncontrolled spread of Covid-19 in the public, there is currently no time limit for the obligation to use face masks in public places.

Experience symptoms of COVID-19 for more than four weeks, including one of the conditions experienced by the ‘long Covid’ survivors. British researchers say the elderly and women are more at risk of experiencing long Covid.
Experts’ analysis looked at about 5 percent of COVID-19 patients even having symptoms for more than eight weeks. Researchers identified two characteristics of people with long Covid.
First, the patient experienced respiratory symptoms, such as coughing and shortness of breath, plus fatigue and headaches. Meanwhile, another group experienced palpitations, intestinal problems, tingling sensations, numbness and brain fog.
“This will pave the way for early intervention trials to reduce the long-term effects of this COVID-19, “researcher Dr. ClaireSteves, a clinical academic at King’s College London, said in a statement quoted from WebMD.
People with long Covid are twice as likely to have a relapse after they recover. About 22 percent of elderly people aged 70 years are also more at risk of experiencing long Covid than other ages.
In addition, researchers found people with asthma or lung disease were more likely to experience long Covid than patients who did not have previous comorbidities.
Long Covid conditions do not differentiate between age or health status. Those with mild or asymptomatic conditions initially also reported prolonged symptoms.
He Health Department reported this Saturday three new deaths as a result of COVID-19, 153 confirmed cases and 160 probable cases in its most recent report on the coronavirus in Puerto Rico.
Of the reported deaths, two were listed as confirmed and one as probable, so the total for each line is now 604 and 190, respectively. The sum of deaths in Puerto Rico as a result of the virus rose to 794.
New confirmed deaths:
82-year-old man from the Bayamón region
72-year-old woman from the Caguas region
Probable new death:
87-year-old woman from the Metro region.
“The change in the number of deaths should not be interpreted as having occurred in the last 24 hours. In the same way, it is important to point out that the death report may vary, to the extent that the processes of registration and codification of the causes of death take place, which could take several days, ”the statement cites.
The confirmed and probable cases that were reported today are based on samples that were taken between October 13 and 21. Now the total in each row is 31,072 for confirmed cases and 30,208 for probable cases.
However, the number of confirmed was adjusted after adding nine cases that had not been reported and that had a sample date of August 3 to October 12. In addition, 46 duplicate cases were subtracted.
Likewise, the total of probable cases was adjusted by Health by subtracting six cases that had a positive molecular test. At the same time, the agency added 61 cases that it had not reported and that were shown from April 22 to September 29. In the same way, the agency subtracted 35 duplicate cases.
“The adjustments in totals are made as part of an effort by the Department of Health, entities and clinical laboratories, to ensure that any sample made for COVID-19 is registered in the Bio Portal, regardless of the date it was taken” , justified Health.
The number of people hospitalized for the virus rose to 395, which is 14 more than yesterday. Of the 395 hospitalized, 57 are confined in an Intensive Care Unit and 42 are connected to an artificial respirator. Three minors are also in intensive care, but only one is on a respirator.
Health defined probable death as the death of a patient who was diagnosed with COVID-19 through a serological test (non-diagnostic) or whose death was recorded by his doctor using clinical criteria when evaluating symptoms. Meanwhile, confirmed deaths involve people who tested positive for a molecular (diagnostic) test.
Similarly, the term confirmed positive case refers to infections whose result was validated by a molecular test. Likewise, the probable case refers to that positive result for the disease that was obtained through a serological test.

The total of 31,072 confirmed positive cases corresponds to 16,736 women and 14,336 men.
The group of patients between 20 and 29 years old dominates with the highest number of infections (5,446), followed by 40 to 49 years (5,250) and 30 to 39 years (5,244).
The metropolitan region is the one with the most confirmed positive cases with a total of 11,165, followed by the Bayamón region (7,048) and Caguas (4,147). However, it has 286 confirmed cases for which it has not been able to identify the region.

The European Union’s disease control agency said that all EU countries, except Cyprus, Estonia, Finland and Greece, now fall into a category of “serious concern”, such as the United Kingdom.
“The continued increase in covid-19 infections poses a major threat to public health, with most countries having a highly worrying epidemiological situation”, said Andrea Ammon, director of the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control.
While more restrictive measures are in place across the continent and the British Isles, clinical officials are pessimistic. “It’s a trench war”, with the difference that “it’s not bombs, it’s a virus”. “It is the virus that commands, it is not us, neither politicians nor scientists”, said Benoît Misset, head of the intensive care unit at the University Hospital in Liège said.
“We are losing. We are crushed. We are bitter,” he said. Misset told AFP that several of the colleagues have to work despite being infected with the virus, although asymptomatic.
Brussels and Wallonia, the French-speaking region of which Liège is a part, are now the epicenters of the crisis in Belgium, where former Prime Minister and current Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sophie Wilmès, is in intensive care.
In France, health authorities have reported that the country has reached more than 1 million confirmed cases of coronavirus, becoming the second country in Western Europe after Spain to reach that number, after having recorded an additional 42000 new cases in the last 24 hours.
The head of the hospital center in Paris and the Île-de-France region warned that the second wave could be more serious than the first. “There are many infectious people on the streets without knowing it and without anyone else knowing it”, these Martin Hirsch.
French President Emmanuel Macron, on a visit to a hospital near Paris, recalled that the virus will persist for a few more months. “When I listen to scientists, I see that the projections are for, at best, until next summer,” he said.
An overnight curfew comes into effect in almost the whole of France at midnight, reaching about two out of three citizens. The curfew from 9 pm to 6 am, which had already been imposed in Paris, its suburbs, and major cities, will now be extended to 38 other regions, and to Polynesia.
Macron said it was too early to say whether France could move into new total or partial feedlots
On Wednesday, Spain officially became the first EU country, and the sixth in the world, to surpass one million confirmed infections by covid-19. Two days later, in a televised speech, the Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez said that the “real number” of cases was actually more than three million.
Several regional authorities have announced new measures, with the Madrid region banning domestic meetings from midnight to 6 am and halving capacity in bars and restaurants.
The Netherlands, one of the European countries hardest hit by the second wave, with a record new number of daily cases since mid-September (now reaching 10,000 every 24 hours), will begin transferring patients from covid-19 to Germany . During the first wave in March and April, dozens of seriously ill people were transferred to Germany, where the capacity for intensive care is greatest.
The day after the Republic of Ireland entered confinement, Wales followed in his footsteps. There are 3.1 million people with orders to stay at home on a 17-day “fire break”. Containment prohibits the opening of all retailers, cafes, restaurants, pubs and hotels. “Our ambition is that we don’t need to have this level of restriction again in Wales before Christmas”, said the head of the Welsh government Mark Drakeford.
On Saturday, the English county of South Yorkshire, which includes the city of Sheffield, will raise the alert level to very high, like Manchester, which means closing down pubs, cafes and restaurants and limiting the number of people inside the home.

In Poland, which reached 13600 infections in one day, a record number, confinement was adopted at the national level which includes the partial closure of primary schools and restaurants.
For the second consecutive day, Italy reported a record number of new cases, recording 19143 infections over the 24-hour period.
Switzerland has also reached a new record of infections by the virus, with 6634 new cases during the previous 24 hours. The federal government in Bern is expected to impose tougher national measures next week, even when the country intends to keep the economy open and schools functioning.
Revolt against the minister
In the Czech Republic, revolt is the watchword following Health Minister Roman Prymula was caught without a mask leaving a restaurant that should have been closed according to the restrictions that he established himself. Prymula says he was having a meeting in facilities adjacent to the restaurant and that he refuses to resign.
Sweden continues to disagree with the rest of the countries. Despite an increase in cases, and deaths, the new measures announced by the government and to take effect on November 1 are only limiting the number of people in restaurants, bars and clubs.
Authorities have advised residents of the university city of Uppsala to avoid public transport and contact with people outside their home for a few days after a spike in infections since the students returned.
Across the globe, covid-19 has claimed the lives of 1.1 million people – about a fifth in the United States – and infected nearly 42 million.
Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – In difficult times due to the Covid-19 pandemic, financial planning is equally important.
Financial planner who is also CEO of ZAP Finance, Prita Ghozie Hapsari, shared some tips on how to manage finances in times of crisis like today.
Prita explained, even in the midst of a crisis, the need for life continues. Therefore, there is a need for wise financial planning.
“We must understand the financial goals that continue to exist even though the crisis continues,” said Prita, in an online seminar on Tips for Managing Finances in Crisis, Friday (23/10/2020).
Prita emphasized three things in managing finances during a pandemic. The first is to increase the saving portion, in this case an emergency fund must be prepared. Ideally, the emergency fund is 12 times the routine expenses.
Also, the loan should not be more than 30% of the income.
Second, keep investing. There are several products that can be used as a reference based on the time period.
For short and medium term investment goals, money market mutual fund products can be an option.
Furthermore, for long-term investment purposes, it can be through fixed income mutual funds (RDPT) or government bonds (SUN) or retail sukuk that can be traded on the secondary market, namely ORI or Retail Sukuk.
“For long-term investment needs, this is the right time to buy shares, but look for the right one [fundamentalnya] not speculation for a moment, “he said again.
Finally, continued Prita, is to buy insurance products that are protective in nature, especially health insurance.
“Protection is very important during a pandemic, if you want to insist on not having insurance or BPJS for health, no, we never know when you will get sick,” he explained.
“A study led by Dr Claire Steves and Professor Tim Spector at King’s College London analyzed data from 4,182 COVID Symptom Study users who tested positive for coronavirus,” the paper writes. The Guardian.
Experts concluded that women were twice as likely as men to have the symptoms of Covid-19 for more than a month. However, only at the age of sixty, then the level of risk is the same for both sexes.
Experts associate increasing age with the risk of long-term coronavirus. While 22% of people over the age of 70 struggled with problems for about four or more weeks, people aged 18 to 49 with longer-term symptoms were only 10%.
However, for women between the ages of fifty and sixty, according to experts, both risk factors came together. Compared to people aged 18 to 30 years, women were eight times more likely to develop more permanent symptoms of coronavirus.
However, the biggest difference between men and women was recorded between the ages of 40 and 50, where the risk was doubled. “This is a similar pattern to what we see in autoimmune diseases. Problems such as rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid disease and lupus are two to three times more common in women just before menopause,” said Professor Spector.
According to Spector, this difference is probably due to a different reaction of male and female immunity to the coronavirus.
In Czech hospitals, they complain about a lack of staff. Find out more in the TV Nova report:
