This is bad! Entrepreneurs Can Only Last Until October

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – The Central Statistics Agency (BPS) stated that the Covid-19 pandemic had a very significant impact on the business world.

In the latest research on a survey of the impact of Covid-19 on business actors conducted by BPS in the period 10-26 July 2020 with a total of 34,559 business actors from various sectors.

Head of the Central Bureau of Statistics, Suhariyanto, said that in the survey, BPS wanted to understand the company’s attitude regarding the spread of the pandemic, what policies the companies were implementing, the constraints and adaptations of companies so that they could survive.

Of this amount, said Suhariyanto, as many as 82.29% of Medium and Large Enterprises (UMB) experienced a decline in income, while Micro and Small Enterprises (MSEs) recorded a decrease in income of 84.20%.

Some of the business sectors with the highest impact were in the accommodation and food and drink sectors at 92.47%, other services 90.90%, as well as transportation and warehousing 90.34%.

“8 out of every 10 companies, both MSEs and UMB, tend to experience a decline in demand because customers or clients are also affected, Covid-19 is hitting both supply and demand,” said Suhariyanto, in the Indonesian Democracy Study Group’s webinar entitled Strategies to Reduce Covid-19, Increase Economy, Sunday (20/9/2020).

So, how long will this company last? According to Suhariyanto, of these respondents, around 19% of business operators estimate that they will be able to survive a maximum of 3 months. 25.94% said it was more than 3 months and 55.32% said they did not know.

“This means that 42 percent of business actors can survive a maximum of 3 months. The situation is rather worrying,” said Suhariyanto.

However, in the midst of these harsh conditions, the company is diversifying its business to survive the pandemic.

BPS research also states that MSEs really need priority assistance in the form of business capital from the government. Meanwhile, what is most needed from UMB is electricity bill relief and loan payment relaxation.

Madrid restricts freedom of movement

Nearly one million residents of the Madrid region were preparing on Sunday for the entry into force of strict restrictions on their freedom of movement on Monday intended to curb the second wave of the COVID-19 epidemic.

Announced Friday, these measures will come into effect Monday for two weeks.

The inhabitants of the affected areas, 850,000 people representing 13% of the regional population, will only be able to leave their neighborhood for basic reasons such as going to work, going to the doctor or bringing their children to school.

They will, however, be able to move freely within this district.

Likewise, entry into these areas, except for these reasons of first necessity, will be prohibited.

Regional authorities recommend residents “to stay at home most of the time”, while ensuring that it is not a strict confinement at home as in the spring.

In these neighborhoods or suburban communities, located in particular in the disadvantaged south of the capital, parks will be closed, while shops, as well as bars and restaurants, will have to limit their capacity to 50%.

In addition, the number of people who can meet will be reduced from ten to six across the region.

The inhabitants will have to present a written document to justify their displacement and “random checks” will be carried out by the municipal police, with the occasional support of the national police and the Guardia Civil, announced Sunday the regional authorities during a conference Press.

After the first 24 hours, sanctions may be taken.

Several demonstrations against these new measures took place at midday in the neighborhoods concerned, at the call of far-left organizations in particular.

“No to class confinement”, “they are destroying our neighborhood and now they are locking us up”, could we read on the signs.

The conservative president of the region, Isabel Diaz Ayuso, much criticized for her management of the crisis, is due to meet Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez on Monday, a sign of the central government’s concern while the management of public health falls in principle to the regions.

“We are seeing data that worries us because the number of new cases (in Madrid) is double the national average, and the number of hospitalizations is triple” the average, explained the socialist leader on Saturday evening during a meeting. television interview.

However, “I do not envisage a confinement of the country”, he assured.

“It is true that we cannot close any door because obviously the virus is an unknown agent (…) but I believe that we now have the tools (…) to be able to contain and bend the curve” of contagions, he added.

Subjected in the spring to one of the strictest containments in the world, Spain has seen since July the epidemic start again at a galloping speed until becoming the country with the number of cases reported to its population the highest in the world. ‘EU.

A perfect illustration of the cry of alarm launched Thursday by the WHO about an “alarming” level of transmission in Europe.

Representing a third of the country’s new cases and deaths, Madrid is the region of greatest concern due to the ability of its inhabitants to spread the virus throughout Spain from a metropolis populated by 6.6 million people. ‘inhabitants which is also a transport hub.

Experts fear for the coming weeks in the region a sharp increase in mortality, currently much lower than in the spring, while the health system is on the verge of saturation.

Spain, one of the European countries hardest hit by the Covid-19 pandemic, this week exceeded 30,000 deaths and 600,000 confirmed cases, according to official figures.


Why France is unable to contain the second wave of Covid

AGI – In the last few weeks in France, the number of new Covid-19 positives has increased sharply, which have even exceeded 10 thousand cases per day, and in some regions the number of beds in intensive care and in specialized wards are scarce. The picture is deteriorating rapidly, causing fear, even among European neighbors, of the emergence of a second wave. The surge in cases also raises a series of doubts and questions about the management of the exit from “confinement” and the strategies adopted by Paris to stem the transmission of the virus.

To explain at least in part the current critical situation, it could be the concomitance of some factors both in terms of timing, and of tools available in the strategic response to the pandemic, and of less rigorous behavior of citizens. “In reaction to the ‘fatigue from coronavirus’ and the lack of freedom of the spring months, since the end of June the habits of the French have changed a lot, especially on vacation, and barrier gestures were observed with less diligence by everyone regardless of age.

At that time, however, the identification-tracing-isolation system was not yet sufficiently consolidated ”, explains to AGI Vittoria Colizza, research director of the Epicx laboratory, at the French National Institute of Health and Research (Inserm) in Paris.

Scientists had foreseen a scenario of resumption of infections

For those who, like Colizza, carry out risk assessment, mitigation and control analyzes of human and animal epidemics, on mathematical and computational approaches, the current trend is not exactly a surprise.

An Inserm modeling study carried out last April and subsequently published by the journal BMC Medicine had proposed 4 possible scenarios for the exit from the confinement of France, taking into account a combination of factors: the ‘test-trace-isolate’ strategy, social distancing measures – including the gradual reopening of some commercial activities – and the adoption of preventive measures by the population.

“In fact, two of these scenarios predicted a decrease in cases between May and June, followed by an increase in epidemic activity over the summer months. In particular, one of the scenarios is in line with the hospitalization data for the period between May and September ”, emphasizes the scientist.

As for the first point, that is the test-trace-isolate strategy, a new system created to allow France to exit the lockdown, between 13 May and the end of June it identified only one case out of 10, leaving out 9 (underdetection) . The capabilities of this strategy have subsequently strengthened, hand in hand with the increase in tests performed – currently more than one million per week – of the laboratories and personnel available.

Test-tracking-isolation strategy not effective

“Numbers in hand, one of the reasons for the increase in viral circulation in the summer months was the limited capacity of the test-trace-isolate strategy in the initial phase of deconfinement. The fact that in May and June it was able to identify only one symptomatic case out of 10 limited the effectiveness of this strategy as a tool to fight the pandemic ”analyzes Colizza, taking up the authoritative studies of the Epicx laboratory she directed.

“On paper, this strategy should have slowed the chain of transmission of the virus, but certainly a more aggressive system would have been needed to stem the pandemic,” says the researcher. Added to this is the fact that when the strategy in question was launched, epidemic activity was in decline as in France the return to school was first on a voluntary basis – with only 20% of pupils present in the classroom – and very partial work for millions of French people.

Subsequently, from July onwards, if on the one hand the ability to test, trace and isolate has increased up to about 50% (compared to about 7% in June), on the other, holidays have begun and citizens are tired after months of lockdowns have begun to observe preventive measures with less rigor, both in their daily life and in the vacation spot.

“Even if at the moment we are not yet able to accurately assess the impact of tourism on the rebound of cases, it is clear that the increase in contacts between people who have less respected barrier gestures and the exchange of populations between various holiday regions in the Hexagone have contributed to the current growth of the circulation of the virus ”continues the researcher. As regards the profile of hospitalized patients – mostly elderly and subjects with some previous pathologies – it has remained substantially unchanged compared to previous months.

In the Hexagon the distribution of the virus has changed

On the current epidemic situation beyond the Alps, the scholar highlights that, however, the ‘geography’ of Covid-19 has changed. During the first wave it had mainly affected the regions of the North-Great East, Hauts de France and Ile de France, while now the most critical picture concerns other territories, in particular Marseille and the Bouches-du-Rhône department, Bordeaux and the French Riviera.

“In the most affected regions, the doubling time of hospital admissions for Covid-19 is now less than two weeks. We are facing a consistent and consistent increase, however slower than the first wave at the moment, but accelerating in many regions due to the return to work and the reopening of schools after the summer break ”concludes Colizza.

Until now, the strategy implemented by the government of Jean Castex is to leave the local administrations carte blanche, authorizing them to autonomously enact restrictive measures if necessary – obligation to wear a mask even outdoors in many French cities, curfew, limitation of gatherings, reduction of hours of opening activities – with thedeclared goal of avoiding a new national lockdown at all costs.

According to the latest report released by the Santé Publique Agency, in the last 24 hours France has registered 10,593 new cases of coronavirus against 9,784 cases detected the day before. Since the beginning of the emergency, 467,421 infections have been recorded. There were 50 deaths related to Covid-19, for a total of 31,257 victims since the beginning of the pandemic.


gunshots heard in a military camp near Bamako

Shots rang out Tuesday morning August 18 in the large military camp of Kati, about fifteen kilometers from the Malian capital Bamako. According to witnesses interviewed by AFP, Malian soldiers fired in the air for an unknown reason. “There were many of them and very nervous,” said a doctor at Kati hospital.

The French Embassy in Bamako “urges” its nationals to stay at home. Advice also provided by the Norwegian embassy which mentions in a message reported by Reuters a “mutiny within the armed forces”.

The reasons for this outburst of military anger are not yet clear. “We are closely monitoring the situation. The military hierarchy has come into contact with the troops, we will make an official statement during the day “, declared a source at the Ministry of Defense, who refused to speak of” mutiny “.

New calls to demonstrate against power
Mali, epicenter of the jihadist threat in the Sahel since 2012, has been facing a serious socio-political crisis since June. On Monday, the opposition announced new demonstrations this week to demand the departure of President Ibrahim Boubacar Keïta, culminating in the occupation of a symbolic place in the heart of Bamako on Friday and Saturday.

The Mouvement du 5 Juin-Rassemblement des Forces patriotiques du Mali (M5-RFP), which since June has led the most important contestation of power since the coup d’état of 2012, is a motley coalition of religious leaders, political opponents, members of civil society and trade unionists.

He refused last Thursday a meeting with President Keïta proposed by the mediator of West African States, former Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan, setting in particular as a prerequisite the end of the “repression” against his activists.

On the weekend of July 10, a demonstration called for by the June 5 Movement degenerated into three days of deadly unrest. The opposition evokes a death toll of 23 and more than 150 injured. Prime Minister Boubou Cissé spoke of 11 dead and the UN of 14 protesters killed.

The current crisis started with the invalidation of some thirty legislative results of March-April by the Constitutional Court, including ten in favor of the majority of President Keïta.


the billions flown from Asecna

Exclusive supporting documents (last three confidential annual audit reports), Jeune Afrique is trying to shed light, in its June 23 edition, on a scandal that has not yet revealed all its mysteries. The pan-African magazine reveals the evaporation of several tens of billions of CFA francs from the accounts of the Agency for the Safety of Air Navigation in Africa and Madagascar (Asecna). A structure which covers sixteen African countries (Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Congo, Ivory Coast, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Senegal, Chad, Togo, Madagascar and Comoros) whose headquarters are in Dakar.

Who benefited from these diversions?

The hundreds of pages of documents decrypted by Jeune Afrique (payment orders and cash settlements without supporting documents, unidentified customers, invoices disappeared, etc.) are overwhelming. They reveal, in addition to catastrophic budget management, the evaporation for at least six years of considerable sums: 15.7 billion CFA francs (24 million euros) for the year 2017 alone.

“The at least archaic management of the agency, in particular its still very insufficient computerization, undoubtedly favored these drifts. The insufficiency, even the absence, of internal control and hierarchical validation, also”, explains Jeune Africa in its investigation. Where did these funds go? Who are the responsibles ? Why did the directors general and the seventeen transport ministers in the area not react when they had been informed for years? In short, who benefited from these diversions?

A 173 billion plan in the pipeline

Founded in 1959, Asecna’s mission is to ensure transport security in the airspace of its 17 member states, with the exception of France, ie an area of ​​16,100,000 km2. It oversees 10 regional control centers, 57 control towers, 25 international airports and 76 national and regional airports. It is also responsible for the maintenance of all installations, the runway and aeronautical information office, fire safety and weather forecasting services.

The responsible ministers approved in 1999, for the period 2000-2006, a Services and Equipment Plan (Pse) of 173 billion CFA francs (264 million euros). The challenge: to prepare a change of generation of the technical means used – designated by the English initials Cns / Atm (Communication, Navigation Surveillance / Air Traffic Management) – and to replace direct ground-air links with satellite communications, aircraft surveillance by the controllers thanks to an automatic positioning transmission system (Ads), computerized traffic management and navigation by Gns (satellite radio navigation system set up on a worldwide scale).

Massive infection in marriage in the United States: 7 dead and 177 infected – Health

It was to be remembered as a fond celebration in midsummer in the quaint little town of Millinocket, Maine. But the wedding party ended with seven deaths and at least 177 people infected by coronavirus.

One of the reasons for this party that ended in tragedy is that the wedding guests on August 7 they were 65, more than the maximum allowed of 50 people. They first attended a ceremony at a Baptist church, and then a reception at the Big Moose Inn, both near Millinocket, a town of 4,000 people.

Ten days later, 24 people linked to the marriage tested positive for COVID-19, and the Maine Center for Disease Control opened an investigation. The director of the Center, Nirav Shah, informed on Thursday in a press conference that as a result of the marriage there were at least 177 infected people. Seven died, although “none of the victims was physically present at the party.”

Epidemiological investigators trying to find everyone who came into contact with infected people linked the marriage to several outbreaks of the virus across the state of Maine, on the border with Canada.

A total of 39 cases and six deaths occurred in a nursing home 100 miles from Millinocket, more than 80 cases were identified in a prison 370 km from the place of the wedding – one of the guards attended the marriage – and there are 10 probable cases in a Baptist church in the same region.

For Maine, which initially had very strict rules of confinement and social distancing but later relaxed them due to its very low infection rate, what happened was a reminder that you cannot lower your guard against the virus.

When we found out what happened, everyone went into quarantine again (…) Everything closed in town“Cody McEwen, president of the city council, told AFP.

Some residents of the town are furious with the organizers of the marriage, starting with the shelter where it took place, and whose accommodation was temporarily suspended.

“They shouldn’t have organized that wedding. They should have been limited to 50 people, ”deplored Nina Obrikis, a member of the local Baptist church. “Now we can’t go anywhere, we can’t do anything.”

The church where the marriage ceremony took place.

Maine Gov. Janet Mills issued a warning Thursday to the 1.3 million residents of this highly rural small state, whose contagion rate stands at 0.6%.

This increase in cases “threatens to ruin the progress made” in the face of the pandemic, he said. “We are not on the other side of the tunnel of covid-19, the virus is in our gardens”, he specified.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, a series of events are linked to the origin of an exponential number of cases. The first in the United States were a biotechnology conference in Boston in February, where about 175 people participated, and a burial in Georgia where more than 100 people were infected with the virus.
