Coronavirus: Greta Thunberg has symptoms and is self-insulating

Greta Thunberg says she may have contracted the coronavirus and has self-isolated at home with her father.

The adolescent climate activist said she appears to have been infected with her father, actor Svante Thunberg.

They both started having symptoms after a recent train tour in Europe together and have therefore been isolated in recent weeks, he said.

They traveled to Europe before governments imposed blockades across the continent in an attempt to stop the spread of the virus.

In an Instagram post today, Thunberg said she suffered from chills, sore throats, coughs and feeling tired after traveling with her father from Brussels.

The 17-year-old Swede said in a video released today by the New Scientist that her father had “more intense symptoms” like fever and has now recovered.

In a video published by the New Scientist Thunberg said today that his father had “more intense symptoms” like fever while he only had “mild symptoms”

He said: ‘In the past two weeks I have been isolated and then I have caught the virus.

‘I came home from Central Europe and then isolated myself from the start, because I thought I could, just as I was on the trains … and therefore I don’t want to put anyone else at risk.

‘But then I started feeling some symptoms after a few days. But the important thing is that basically I didn’t feel so bad.

“At the same time, my father experienced much more intense symptoms.”

Thunberg said in his Instagram post that he self-insulated himself in an apartment away from his sister and mother after noticing the symptoms 10 days ago.

He added that he wanted to raise awareness of how easy it was to transmit the infection without realizing it.

The campaigner said, “Basically I didn’t think I was sick. It’s possible that I felt unusually tired, a little coughing.

‘That’s because I’m not part of a risk group, I haven’t taken it very seriously. This is also very dangerous because you don’t know you have it.

“If I wouldn’t have been for my father to get it at the same time and much more intense than me, I wouldn’t have even noticed that I was sick.”

‘Many people do not experience very mild symptoms or symptoms at all, but they can be contagious.

‘It is something that I want to communicate, that many people do not experience very mild symptoms or symptoms at all, but it can still be contagious. So you really have to practice social distancing, whether you feel bad or not. ‘

On social media, the teenager invited young people to protect groups at greatest risk from the disease.

Thunberg went on to explain that in Sweden patients cannot be tested for COVID-19 unless hospital treatment is needed.

Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg took part in the “Climate attack in Europe” event in Brussels earlier this month

He added: ‘So obviously I’m not 100% sure I have it. But it would have been very strange if it had been something else, because it suited a lot … especially with my father’s reaction, it suited exactly the symptoms. “

Coronavirus has spread rapidly worldwide since it came into existence last December, reaching over 160 countries and causing over 17,000 victims and over 400,000 cases.

The youth climate strike movement that Thunberg inspired drew millions of people to the streets around the world in 2019.

This year, however, in the face of the emerging pandemic, young climate activists from Fridays for Future have undertaken their weekly digital actions, using the Twitter hashtag #ClimateStrikeOnline.

Thunberg urged young climate activists, many now stuck at home as schools close, to help others overcome the COVID-19 epidemic and to maintain their activism safely.

How to stop constant snacking during coronavirus blockade

As the nation adapts to life in the closure of the coronavirus, people across the country are forced to establish new daily routines.

Health and diet are proving particularly difficult to manage as our regular training regimes are interrupted and millions of us work from home with constant access to our kitchens and care inside.

Thousands of workers have gone to social media to reveal that they are snacking more than ever and are ‘grazing’ during the day, now that the structure of the working day has been messed up.

This could potentially fatten millions of people across the UK, which is of particular concern for the current climate as obesity is recognized as a key risk factor for COVID-19. An increase in obesity also poses a long-term threat to the NHS.

Speaking with FEMAIL, two UK-based nutritionists explained that this apparent need to eat constantly is triggered by feelings of boredom, panic and anxiety caused by the fears surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and government-changing measures. to stop the spread.

Tamara Willner, a nutritionist from Second Nature, a food plan supported by the NHS, and Jenny Tschiesche, a nutrition expert known as The Lunchbox Doctor, shared their advice on how to recognize, deal with and manage the long-term diet.

WHY ARE WE MORE SNACKING?

Tamara explained: “Between stress on uncertainty, work from home and reduced social interaction, emotional food could be particularly popular in the coming weeks.

Emotional consumption occurs when food is used to soothe or suppress negative emotions such as isolation, anger, boredom or stress.

‘Often comfort or emotional eating ignores the feelings of physical hunger that come from an empty stomach. The most common craved foods are usually ultra processed, such as biscuits, chips, chocolate and ice cream. These foods are scientifically designed to quickly target the pleasure receptors in our brain.

‘Most of us experience emotional food at one time or another. However, when emotional consumption occurs frequently and food becomes the main mechanism for coping with a stressful situation, it can affect our health and mental well-being. This emotional eating may be more likely when we isolate ourselves. ‘

How snacks are designed to be impossible to resist

The block snack probably involves delicacies like cakes, biscuits, chocolate and chips, rather than healthy options that we know are “best” for us. And we can find “space” to eat these, even when we are full.

This is because our taste system can be fooled when salt, fat and sugar are carefully combined in quantities measured by experts to be “right”, according to a post on the Second Nature blog.

At this point, we keep coming back more because we continue to enjoy it, even when we should stop.

Howard Moskowitz, an American market researcher known for creating compelling flavor combinations that fly off the shelves, coined this as a “happiness point” – the exact measurements of fat, sugar and salt that make our taste buds tingle and nullify the natural brain “stop signs.

This happiness point plays a significant role in why we crave certain addictive foods, such as ice cream and chips. Even in the most strong-willed individuals, these cravings may seem impossible to resist.

Jenny said: ‘During this time when those with compromised immunity are completely home related and those who are not limited to one form of exercise per day many of us will experience cravings or pangs for the food we don’t need.

‘For many, hunger for food is actually a need to bridge the boredom gap or a need for some form of distraction. Also, the lack of daylight most likely means a lack of vitamin D and that associated with stress right now means that we tend to want to eat sweet foods as a quick fix for low mood and low blood sugar levels. “

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO SPEND LESS?

Tamara outlined a four-step plan that anyone can follow to end their emotional eating during the blockade.

Know your trigger

Keeping a food diary of what we eat, how much we eat and what we feel when we eat can help us identify what causes comfort in eating. For some people, it is boredom, while for others it is stress, anxiety or sadness.

Find a new outlet for the excitement

Once we know what triggers our emotional eating, we can find other simple activities at home to manage them without food.

The best tasks to do to divert our mind from food are those with cognitive difficulties. This means that taking a walk, meditating or taking a bath may not be an effective way to distract us. However, something involving your brain can be a better distractor, like sudoku puzzle, crossword puzzle, brain training app, chess or doodle, calling a friend, playing a board game, listening to a podcast.

A food diary can help you discover the emotional triggers that drive us to snack. The science behind junk food means that we are more likely to look for chocolate than salad. Stock image

To be prepared

We can prepare for when we feel compelled to eat emotionally by writing down some “if / then” scenarios. For example:

Three quick habits to help cut down on snacks

Sana Khan, founder of Avicenna Wellbeing, offered more practical advice on how to minimize snacks

  • Keep snacks in the kitchen rather than on the desk
  • Just take out what you need. For example, if you are having a snack with oat cakes, put some on a plate, rather than taking the whole package
  • Chew, chew, chew. Chewing improves digestion and increases satiety, which means that you feel full and less likely to choose a snack. Adding a herbal tea to your snacks can also be helpful in limiting the snack

  • “If I am bored and feel the urge to buy unhealthy snacks, then I will do a crossword puzzle for 10 minutes”
  • “If I feel lonely and start craving chips or chocolate, I’ll call my friend for a quick chat”
  • “If I feel anxious and overwhelmed, I will stop and read my book for 10 minutes.”

We can also prepare our environment, avoiding having large quantities of ultra processed foods (for example chips, biscuits, ice cream, chocolate) at home.

Instead, buying healthier whole foods for a snack means that we are less likely to overeat and will make us feel more satisfied.

Take the blame away

It is important not to have guilt feelings when we experience an episode of emotional feeding. One way to do this is to avoid labeling foods as “good”, “bad”, “treatment” or “syn”.

This can promote a negative relationship with food and create a continuous cycle of food comfort. Instead, we can classify foods as foods that we like every day and foods that we like less often.

WHAT SHOULD I EAT

Jenny said it’s important to try to stick to normal meal times and to eat dishes full of healthy, fulfilling and nutritious ingredients.

He said: ‘Try to focus your meals on good quality proteins like canned fish, eggs (if you can find them), tofu, legumes and lots of fresh or frozen vegetables or cans if needed. These protein meals will keep you full longer.

In addition, there are particular foods that can help increase happy serotonin hormone levels, such as fish, nuts, dark green vegetables, seeds, oats, yogurt, eggs and poultry. Try to make sure you eat these foods regularly too. ”

Tips for snacks

Unsweetened peanut butter

High quality dark chocolate (85% +)

Frozen berries

Simple Ryvita crackers

Olive

Mixed nuts

seeds

Hummus

carrots

Hard cheeses

Meal blocks

Make sure you have them on your online shopping list to add to your meals, Jenny suggested.

Canned fish

eggs

tofu

legumes

Vegetables (fresh and canned are fine)

Oats

Natural yogurt

Poultry

Stunning image of the Moon shows that it looks like the giant ringed planet Saturn

Gorgeous image of the Moon shows our closest celestial neighbor who looks like the giant ringed planet Saturn

  • The image was captured by photographer Francisco Sojuel after a long walk
  • It was taken just before dawn while the moon was in a slight increasing phase
  • Sojuel says that the universe has given him a unique moment and he has caught it

An extraordinary image of our closest celestial neighbor – the Moon – shows him surrounded by clouds making him appear like the gas giant ringed Saturn.

He was brought by photographer Francisco Sojuel after a six-mile hike to the base camp of the Acetenango volcano in Guatemala.

This extraordinary image captured a new perspective of the Moon and was taken just before dawn during its slight crescent phase.

In the image the clouds are forming around the Moon while it is illuminated by the Sun.

Around it in the clear night there are so stars that shine above the mountains and lights below from small Guatemalan cities.

Mr. Sojuel, who lives in Santiago Atitlán, Guatemala, said it was a fantastic moment.

“This is one of the best moments that I managed to capture with the camera,” he said.

“You can express different feelings by looking at the photograph.”

NASA shared the extraordinary image on its Astronomy Picture of the Day website – where it hosts images from all over the world showing our universe.

‘Why does Saturn look so big? Not so: what is depicted are the clouds in the foreground on Earth crossing in front of the Moon, “wrote the space agency.

‘The Moon shows a slight crescent phase with most of its surface visible by the reflected light of the Earth known as ash glow.

“The Sun directly illuminates the lunar crescent illuminated from below, which means that the Sun must be below the horizon and therefore the image was taken before sunrise,” according to NASA.

Sojuel said it was a unique moment that was presented to him by the universe and he is very happy with the fantastic feedback he received from the people who see the photo.

“It also makes your imagination wake up because it looks like another planet and makes you doubt how the moon and that subtle cloud managed to align.”

WHAT EVIDENCE WAS FOUND FOR THE WATER ON THE MOON?

Numerous researchers have said that future visitors may find water on the moon, above or below its surface or in its soil.

Such a discovery could mean that future lunar colonies could collect water on the moon without having to take it with them from Earth.

They could also convert it to hydrogen and oxygen to make missile fuel or oxygen breathe, scientists say.

In February 2018, a study found by the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colorado, in the form of OH – a more reactive relative of H2O – across the lunar surface.

In September 2017, experts created the first map of the water and its blocks trapped in the highest part of the lunar soil.

They claimed that water in this form is present almost everywhere on the lunar surface.

A separate study that month showed that the moon’s surface contains more water than we thought.

He suggests that the interior of our natural satellite may contain a deep water tank.

This discovery reinforces the idea that the lunar mantle is surprisingly rich in water, which could make it much easier to colonize it for future space exploration.

The number of cases of Italian coronavirus can be ten times higher

The count of coronavirus cases in Italy is probably ten times higher than the official figure of 64,000, said the head of the agency collecting the data today.

Angelo Borrelli said it is “credible” to suggest that up to 640,000 people may have been infected, since only a portion of them received the necessary tests.

Tests for the disease have often been limited to people seeking hospital care, with health services stretched to the limit on the epidemic scale.

The latest data show that 6,077 people died in Italy in just one month, almost double the number of victims that China suffered.

“A report of one out of 10 certified cases is credible,” head of the Civil Protection Agency Angelo La Borrelli told La Repubblica newspaper.

The missing cases could help explain the high mortality rate in Italy of around 9.0 percent, higher than in Great Britain, France or Spain and much higher than in Germany.

Borrelli said that the greatest difficulty for Italy is the lack of masks and fans in intensive care.

The medical shortage has haunted the health system since the infection first surfaced in the affluent northern region of Lombardy on February 21.

Italy is trying to import stocks from abroad, but Borrelli said that countries like India, Romania, Russia and Turkey have blocked these sales.

“We are contacting the embassies, but I’m afraid there will be no more masks from abroad,” he said.

Others have turned to more inventive solutions, with at least one startup company converting commercial diving masks into emergency fans.

However, Borrelli also played cautious notes of optimism after two successive decreases in the daily mortality rate in Italy.

The number of new deaths dropped from a world record of 793 on Saturday to 651 on Sunday and 601 on Monday.

The number of officially registered new infections also decreased from 6,557 on Saturday to 4,789 on Monday.

“The measures we took two weeks ago are starting to produce effects,” said Borrelli, two weeks after Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte ordered a national quarantine.

The Lombardy region around Milan has started imposing fines of € 5,000 (£ 4,600) on those who are out without a good excuse.

Initially, some blockade measures were expected to end this week, but were extended until April.

Borrelli said that further data in the coming days will help understand “if the growth curve is really flattening out”.

But Borrelli and other Italian medical officials have been extremely cautious in drawing firm conclusions from the two-day drop.

Italy’s daily deaths are even higher than those officially recorded in China at the height of its crisis in central Hubei province of Wuhan.

They are also taller than those seen anywhere else in the world, forcing the army to carry coffins as cemeteries and mortuary are overwhelmed by the crisis.

The head of health has not tried to blame anyone or any single factor for the fact that Italy is now at the forefront of the global crisis.

“From the beginning, people have behaved in a way that has fueled the national problem,” said Borrelli.

But he pointed out a Champions League match between Italian Atalanta and Valencia’s soccer teams in Spain at San Siro stadium in Milan on February 19 as a particularly serious mistake.

40,000 fans attended and celebrated the victory of the local team in the middle of the night.

“Now we can say, in hindsight, that he was potentially a detonator,” said Berrelli of the game.

The epidemic seems certain to leave the already fragile Italian economy in pieces, with most of the companies ordered to close.

Most of the big global banks think that Italy has already entered a deep economic recession that could be more serious than anything seen for decades.

The government wants a bailout fund for eurozone states to be distributed without restrictions, a request that puts Rome grappling with the richer northern nations.

Currently, the so-called European Stability Mechanism (ESM) can only help euro area countries if they adjust their economic policies to overcome the problems that have led them to seek financial assistance.

But Deputy Economy Minister Antonio Misiani said that the emergence of the coronavirus has made these restrictions superfluous.

“The only acceptable condition is to use the resources of the ESM to manage the health and economic emergency,” he said, starting a possible battle with Brussels on the best way out of the crisis.

An Italian priest, 72 years old, dies of coronavirus after donating a respirator to a younger patient

Giuseppe Berardelli, 72, from Casigno in the most affected region of Lombardy, died in a local hospital

By Chris Pleasance for MailOnline

It has been revealed that an Italian priest died of coronavirus after giving a respirator that his parishioners bought for him to a younger patient.

Giuseppe Berardelli, 72, from Casigno in the Lombardy region most affected in Italy, died in a local hospital in recent days after being diagnosed with the virus.

Berardelli had been given a respirator – which is desperately available – by parishioners concerned about his health, but decided to give it to a younger patient who he did not know but who was struggling to breathe due to the virus.

The exact age and conditions of that patient are unknown, but younger patients who are able to access respirators have a much better chance of surviving.

The extraordinary case was revealed by Jesuit priest James Martin from the United States, who is also a consultant to the Vatican Secretariat for Communications.

The Italian magazine Araberara reported history for the first time.

Berardelli – a well-liked priest with basic health conditions – was remembered for his charity and love for motorcycles.

James Martin, an American Jesuit priest and a Vatican consultation, revealed on Twitter the news of Berardelli’s death, praising him as a “martyr of charity”

Lombardy is at the center of the coronavirus crisis in Italy, reported more than 300 deaths yesterday and represents almost half of the nation's total (in the photo, the ball bearers take the coffin of a victim for burial in a cemetery in Lombardy )

Praising him on Twitter, Martin wrote: “Greater love has no person …” (Jn 15:13)

“He is a” martyr of charity “, a saint like St. Maximilian Kolbe, who volunteered to take the place of a convict with a family in Auschwitz and was killed.

There are at least 60 priests among the 6,077 virus victims in Italy, most of whom were over 70 years old, according to Catholic Herald.

During a mass in early March, Pope Francis, 83, invited Italian priests to “have the courage to get out of the sick” amid the rapid pandemic.

‘We also pray to God for our priests, so they have the courage to come out of the sick, bringing the strength of the Word of God and the Eucharist,’ he said.

“Accompanying healthcare professionals and volunteers in the work they are doing.”

The names of 51 diocesan priests who died after contracting the coronavirus were published in the newspaper Avvenire Sunday.

The publication also noted that nine other deaths had been reported in religious communities across Italy.

Some of these priests had basic health conditions, it was said, and the youngest to die was 53-year-old Paolo Camminati, the parish priest of the Madonna of Lourdes in Piacenza.

Five other priests who tested positive for Covid-19 also died in the same city.

Angry locals in St Ives, Cornwall scribble messages on the beach while second home owners remain rebellious

Angry locals in towns and villages across the UK have highlighted that second home owners leave and return to their city properties amid the outbreak of the coronavirus.

Londoners and people living in big cities across the UK are flocking to the sea and their second homes to escape the virus, attracting the anger of the locals.

Now, furious locals in St Ives, Cornwall have scribbled messages on the beach asking the owners of a second home to leave.

An even more furious sign appeared in Bala, north Wales, which says “Go home to rats”.

The government urged people not to go to the countryside or vacation homes, fearing that the virus would spread across the nation.

However, despite their demands, the government commands and Boris Johnson imposes a blockade across the UK, the second murders remain rebellious and continue to plummet in droves.

The residents of St Ives in Cornwall scribbled a series of messages on the sand on the beach asking tourists to return home.

Two messages read “Locals only”, while another said “Tourists, please go home”.

In Bala, the owners of the second house were confronted with mice in one sign while another message, scrawled on the side of a car, read “Go home idiots”.

Signs also appeared on a roundabout in Porthcawl, South Wales, asking people to turn around.

Meanwhile, a roadside sign in Pembrokeshire also urged non-locals to return home, while a sign in North Wales said, “Snowdonia is closed. Fuck you at home!

However, second home owners remain rebellious in the face of intense criticism.

One of these is Alice Townsend, 52, a physiotherapist who moved to her second home in Northumberland, south London, with her husband and three children.

He said to the Times: ‘We are in the middle of nowhere here. We thought that with three children and two dogs it made sense. We can be out and not infect anyone else.

“I understand that some people may see him as selfish but we thought it was practical.”

A second homeowner, from western London, decided to move to her Suffolk cottage with her husband as soon as rumors of a blockade began.

She insisted that she and her husband did not feel any backlash, despite the fury on social media.

The woman, who wanted to remain anonymous, added: ‘We weekends have our backlash. Like the rest of the country, we are tired of receiving ambiguous advice that changes day by day and above all we resent saying that we should not go to our house, where we pay municipal taxes, like any other resident. ‘

Henry Sherwood, a property buying agent from South West London who moved to his second home in Wantage, Oxfordshire, also insists that he has not faced any hostility to his move.

However, people across the country remain furious at Londoners and people from big cities fleeing to the countryside.

A social media user commented: ‘If Londoners and residents of Middle England could kindly keep away from their second homes in Suffolk and Norfolk, it would be welcome.

‘Stop spreading the virus. You don’t have to be here.

Another angry person wrote: ‘Why is it always London? Many wealthy Londoners now in their second homes, or on vacation in Wales, Cornwall. Places with very few resources. Selfish lot. “

Another added: ‘Our village in the Cotswolds was full of Londoners fleeing the city.

“Irresponsible idiots, who should be locked up to save the rest of us from them.”

Among those who left their London homes to isolate themselves elsewhere was Kate Moss’s little sister Lottie.

The socialite and the model were taken leaving her home in London on Wednesday last week, and she has since shared photos on her Instagram page while collecting flowers in a campaign.

He revealed that he is currently “with the family” in the place earlier today.

Meanwhile influencer and fashion blogger Lizzy Hadfield also revealed that she left London for her native Yorkshire on the weekend.

He posted the photos online while enjoying a country walk on Ilkley Moor in the midst of the coronavirus epidemic across the country.

It comes when the 66 million Britons are starting a new life in the coronavirus block today after Boris Johnson ordered the immediate closure of all non-essential stores and threatened people with fines or even arrested if they “don’t stay home”.

The arrest of the Prime Minister will last for at least three weeks and the new UK state of emergency is unprecedented in modern history.

Meetings of more than two will be banned in the most dramatic obstacles to freedom ever seen in Britain in times of peace or war, while the government does everything it can to stop the spread of the killer disease, which has caused 335 deaths in the UK.

President Trump finds his daughter Tiffany’s claim that the blockade should last just over a week

Donald Trump has retweeted his daughter Tiffany Trump’s claim that the United States has “eight days to slow the spread” of the coronavirus, while the president faces criticism for suggesting that he could have removed the blockades in the United States soon.

Tiffany shared a CDC image showing ’15 days’ canceled and replaced with ‘8’, despite health experts warning that it could be a matter of months before social exclusion measures can be safely reversed.

President Trump said yesterday that he will reconsider the nation’s social distancing policy in a matter of days and that America will be open to the market “very soon”.

The death toll of coronavirus in the United States has exceeded 500 on Monday while the total number of cases has exceeded 43,000 and fifteen states have suffered various forms of blockade.

President Trump complained of the caution brought by health workers, saying he told his team that they would close the “whole world”.

“I was telling them that if it depended on the doctors they would keep it closed, they would say” let’s close the whole world. ” You can’t do it, “he said.

Experts were quick to condemn the lifting blocks early.

Tom Inglesby, director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, tweeted a thread aimed at “anyone who advises the end of social distancing”.

He wrote: “COVID will spread widely, quickly, terribly, it could potentially kill millions in the year ahead with a huge social and economic impact across the country.”

Inglesby, who is listed as a specialist in pandemics and infectious diseases, also said in his tweets: ‘How can we buy time to allow hospitals to receive more supplies and prepare for a large number of patients? How can we reduce the spreading speed of COVID in the United States? How can we reduce the chances of ICUs running out of vents, hospitals running out of space? The answer for now is large-scale social distancing. ”

A former Barack Obama health official told Politico: ‘It is too early to consider canceling any guidelines. With the cases and deaths increasing day by day, the country must double, not lighten, the social distancing and related measures “.

The death toll in the United States exceeded 500 on Monday, when fifteen states entered various forms of blockade.

America’s death toll is now 554, a sharp increase of over 100 people in one day. Experts say the peak is yet to come and that the current state of crisis will last for at least another months.

President Trump has yet to impose a national blockade because the problem is worse in some states than in others.

Michigan, Massachusetts, Indiana, Oregon and West Virginia were the last states to tell residents to stay home and the city of Denver is pushing its resident.

Now, 16 are under house rules. New York and California were the first, along with the state of Washington.

New York is by far the worst hit state in the country, with over 20,000 cases in the United States occurring there. 12,000 amazing are in New York City.

Good news for the travel industry in the midst of the coronavirus crisis with reservations in Britain and Spain by 2021

Good news FINALLY comes for the travel industry: flight reservations for the UK for January 2021 increased by 229% and for Spain increased by 171%

  • Italy is also showing an upward trend for January next year
  • Analysts say travelers are also showing signs of confidence by the end of the year
  • Travelers from Asia are more pessimistic about future travel to the UK
  • Coronavirus symptoms: what are they and should you see a doctor?

Silver coatings in the midst of the coronavirus crisis are difficult to find right now for the travel industry, but they haven’t completely disappeared.

Analysts have revealed that travelers show signs of confidence for January 2021 and the end of the year.

There has been a 229 percent year-on-year increase in global flight bookings made in the past 14 days in the UK for January 2021 and a 171 percent increase for reservations in Spain.

Italy is also showing an upward trend for January next year.

The crunch of the numbers comes courtesy of digital travel marketing solutions company Sojern, which presented a number of results in a blog post.

Explain that when they have looked at flight searches in the past 14 days, it is travelers from the Middle East, Western and Eastern Europe and North America who seem most ready to restore their travel plans as soon as they can and show interest in travel to the UK towards the end of the year. “

He continued: “Eastern and Western Europe shows a very early increase in travel intentions year-over-year for January 2021, with an increase above the average of 144% year-on-year and 85% (compared to 8% and nine percent last week) respectively over the same period last year. “

Travelers from Asia are more pessimistic about future travel to the UK, the data shows.

There has been a 229 percent year-on-year increase in global flight bookings made in the past 14 days in the UK for January 2021

Sojern’s explanation for the recovery is that “it may be the result of some airlines announcing winter times in advance and also issuing a more flexible cancellation and booking policy.” This may have led to an increase in consumer confidence in travel bookings on a date when the pandemic is believed to be catching up, the company says.

Right now, however, the image is bleak.

Sojern says: “Analyzing consumer travel plans gives a sense of the seriousness of the situation and it is not surprising that global flight bookings to Europe have fallen dramatically, with Italy recording a 94% drop on annual flight bookings last week. This is expected given the travel restrictions currently in place due to the ongoing pandemic. Last week the UK showed a 63% drop in flight bookings year on year, in drop from 37% the previous week. “

Chris Blaine, vice president of EMEA in Sojern, said: “The covid-19 epidemic clearly represents a significant threat to the travel industry as a whole and is unlike anything else I’ve ever witnessed before.

‘However, this will not last forever. The industry will recover, but it will take some time. Travel marketers need to be prepared and ready for this recovery, and while there is likely to be a strong repressed demand, travelers will also be very cautious initially. We will likely see domestic tourism recover sooner and longer haul later. It is important to base your strategies on real-time consumer behavior, which will inevitably follow the path to recovery. “

High-profile prisoners have launched legal offers to be released from prison to avoid catching the coronavirus

A number of high-profile prisoners, including former President Trump attorney Michael Cohen, gangster and rapper Takeshi69, celebrity attorney Michael Avenatti, and the genius of the Ponzi scheme Bernie Madoff, have launched legal offers to be released from prison for fear of contracting coronavirus behind bars.

Disgraced and disgraced media tycoon Harvey Weinstein, 68, is the highest profile criminal to date who has proven positive for COVID-19 after capturing him while imprisoned on infamous Rikers Island, New York’s main prison complex City, before being transferred and subsequently isolated at the Wende Correctional Facility in western New York.

On Monday, the president of New York State correctional officers and benevolent police association Michael Powers confirmed that Weinstein is one of two isolated prisoners in the facility.

Those who are making legal offers to escape prison to avoid the virus fear that US prisons will become a breeding ground for the spread of the coronavirus and are keen to avoid Weinstein’s situation.

Prisons in the United States are already trying to release low-level criminals to reduce the population and stem the spread of the virus.

Takeshi69, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, told the Federal Court in Manhattan in a letter that he is breathing breathlessness, a symptom of the coronavirus. He also claimed to have asthma and was recently hospitalized with bronchitis and sinusitis on October 31st, which would put him in the high risk category.

Hernandez’s attorney, Lance Lazzaro, wrote in the letter on Sunday: ‘While I recognize that his release date is only about four months away, given the health crisis that is going through this region and the compromised medical conditions of Mr. Hernandez, please consider carefully by changing Mr.’s sentence. Hernandez so as to make it immediately suitable for home birth. “

Daniel Hernandez, aka Takeshi69, is expected to be released on July 31, but has requested that he be released early to avoid coronavirus as it spreads through the New York prison system.

Daniel Hernandez, aka Takeshi69, is expected to be released on July 31, but has requested that he be released early to avoid coronavirus as it spreads through the New York prison system.

He is expected to complete his sentence on July 31 after being jailed for committing nine federal crimes, including racketeering and drug charges. He was facing a much longer sentence, but this was reduced after collaborating in investigations of other gang members.

The letter states that the 23-year-old guardian of the Hernandez facility, imprisoned, will not allow him to go to the hospital, “despite the recommendations of the facility’s medical director” to be treated by a hospital doctor.

Contrary to Hernandez’s appeal, Michael Cohen, 53, a former Trump repairer who is serving a three-year sentence for fraud and false testimony at the Federal Correctional Faculty in Otisville, New York, did not mention any specific medical need as a reason for his release.

Trump's former repairer Michael Cohen, sentenced to 3 years in prison for fraud and false testimony, also filed for release from prison, despite not having basic health conditions.

Therefore, US assistant lawyer Tom McKay wrote in a letter to Federal Judge Manhatten that Cohen’s claim “applies equally to all detainees” in the New York prison system.

McKay wrote: ‘Cohen has not even attempted to argue that he is solely at risk compared to other inmates. Nor could: he is 53 years old and in good health. “

Cohen’s fellow lawyer, 49-year-old Michael Avenatti, famous for representing celebrities including Stormy Daniels and serving for attempting to extort sportswear giant Nike, also asked to be released from prison to avoid the coronavirus.

His representative said that when he visited Avenatti in prison, he saw that the prison was “completely unprepared” for the coronavirus epidemic, without hand sanitizer or checks on people entering and leaving the prison.

“This is a small indicator of a big problem,” attorney Dean Steward told CNN. ‘I’m putting together a motion to get him out on bail based almost exclusively on the disease factor and how bad it will be once a person gets there. A guard or someone will get it; it will be a horror show. ‘

Despite his concerns, a federal judge rejected Avenatti’s request to be released early, dismissing concerns that a recent pneumonia case would put him at high risk.

Another high-profile inmate who is considering the release application is Bernie Madoff, the man behind a notorious ponzi plan who took him to a 150-year prison for fraud, money laundering, perjury and false statements.

Madoff, 81, applied for compassionate leave last month because of his terminal kidney disease, and is said to be considering the release application once again due to the threat posed by coronavirus to people in poor condition of health.

Speaking to Daily News, Madoff’s attorney said: “This health crisis can further accelerate his death. I think this potentially represents another additional reason why continuing to keep him in solitary confinement is not in his best interest or best interest. of the audience. “

The army confiscates the test machines as ministers rush to perform coronavirus checks on NHS personnel

The army is seizing test machines from university labs as ministers rush to perform urgent coronavirus checks on NHS staff.

Soldiers from the 101st Army Logistics Brigade also abandoned medical masks at London’s St Thomas hospital following warnings that doctors feel like “lambs for slaughter” due to lack of adequate protection.

More than 330 people died in the UK with over 6,600 cases across the country, which today faces the first day of coronavirus blockade.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock is facing increasing pressure to increase the number of checks available, saying to the House of Commons that he wants the country “to get to a point where everyone who wants to be tested can be tested.”

A government review identified hundreds of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) machines in use at universities and companies that can detect the genetic material of the virus.

Military logistics teams have started transporting the machines to a central laboratory where standardized tests can be quickly implemented, according to the Times.

The Department of Health has asked to speed up the collection of machines – and a Whitehall source said the military is acting “essentially a delivery service”.

The machines from the private labs will also be brought to an SSN processing center within a few days to provide tens of thousands of more tests every day.

The government has also ordered a large amount of antibody tests that can determine the presence of the virus.

The Prime Minister said that this “turning point” would allow people who fought the coronavirus to return to work, but officials stressed that commercial tests must be evaluated by the NHS before being used en masse.

Britain is running around 5,000 tests to determine if anyone has the virus, with a capacity set to reach 25,000 using the NHS labs more widely.

But this would not allow SSN staff who are forced to stay at home with symptoms to be tested – hospital patients only – and therefore the seizure of private equipment is believed to be a step towards fulfilling Mr. Hancock to test frontline staff very early. ‘

The government is expected to target hundreds of machines so that tens of thousands more tests can be run daily.

Vials and swabs for taking samples from the back of the throat have already been requested from companies and doctoral students and laboratory technicians have been asked to use them.

The Royal College of Nursing said that it is not just first-line personnel deeply concerned about contracting the coronavirus, but is eager to pass it on to highly vulnerable patients in other departments.

Military sources have revealed that 460 people will be mobilized in the coming days to help deliver personal protective equipment (PPE) to hospitals.

There are currently 50 army members in charge of obtaining vital kits for the NHS, but there are plans to increase it nine times over the course of this week.

The military has sent dozens of military planners to distribution centers across the UK to help coordinate the operation and their main hub will be in Liverpool.

A Defense source said: ‘There is a huge hole in the ability to do it. The NHS does not have the ability to coordinate it, so we are sending more army personnel to support this planning.

It comes when Boris Johnson blocked Britain on Monday evening as he outlined new rigorous measures to curb the spread of Covid-19, ordering people to leave the house only for a few specific reasons, including:

  • Rare purchases for basic necessities such as food or medicine;
  • One form of exercise per day;
  • A medical need or to take care of the vulnerable;
  • Go to work, but only if this cannot be done from home.

Stores authorized to remain open include supermarkets and other grocery stores, health stores, pharmacies including non-distributive pharmacies, gas stations, bicycle shops, homeware and hardware stores, laundries and dry cleaners, garages, car rentals, pet shops, corner shops, newsagents, post offices and banks.

The parks will remain open for exercise, but the playgrounds and outdoor gym spaces will be closed.

Britain has now entered its first day of coronavirus blockade as military vehicles crossed an almost empty Westminster bridge after delivering a necessary set of protective masks for the NHS front of nurses and doctors.

Soldiers from the 101st Army Logistics Brigade left medical masks at London’s St Thomas hospital, following warnings that many doctors feel like “lambs for slaughter” due to lack of adequate protection.

Queues formed early this morning outside supermarkets across the country as shoppers observed the rules of social distance to stand two meters – or more than six feet – away waiting to enter stores.

The nursing leaders had invited Mr. Johnson to take action on the lack of protective clothing for the NHS staff, telling him that many of those doctors and nurses who were endangering their lives were coming out of retirement.

The army is now helping to provide protective equipment such as masks, safety glasses and overalls around the clock in hospitals, but many staff members have expressed concern that there will not be enough to circumvent all of their colleagues.

Former health secretary Jeremy Hunt said that the promise of further tests must be combined with a “national plan”, asking for weekly tests for healthcare staff to make the risk of passing the virus to patients as low possible.

He told MPs: ‘We are still testing only between 5,000 and 8,000 people per day. Not only South Korea, but Germany, Australia and Austria are testing more per inhabitant than we are. Now is the time for a massive national mobilization behind tests and contact traceability “.

Professor of Immunology and Infectious Diseases at the University of Edinburgh, Eleanor Riley, said there is a shortage of specialist equipment capable of carrying out the tests and that public health laboratories are now “testing research laboratories across the country “to find machinery.

He warned that there will likely be a shortage of technical staff, but once the machines and people are available, the test scale can speed up – and he warned that the antibody test would bring further complications because it could be mistakenly triggered by defenses against others. coronavirus.

Coronavirus cases and deaths increase in Germany, but the mortality rate remains low

Germany has announced another peak in coronavirus cases and deaths, but has managed to maintain one of the lowest mortality ratios in the world.

There are now 27,436 confirmed coronavirus cases in Germany – an increase of 4,764 in 24 hours – while deaths have increased overnight from 86 to 112.

This means that the German death rate is still around 0.4 percent, the lowest of the 10 countries that have been most affected by the virus. The mortality rate in Italy is 9%, while that of the United Kingdom is 5.3%.

The figure has baffled scientists as Germany has a higher percentage of older people than the UK and Italians have generally healthier lifestyles than their German counterparts.

Germany announced a 21% increase in overnight coronavirus cases to over 27,000 with an increase in deaths to 114 - but still has one of the lowest mortality rates in the world (pictured, patients at Leipzig airport )

Experts have suggested that Germany is simply testing more people for the virus, which means that the country has a much more accurate picture of its total number of infections, which would mean that the mortality rate is lower.

This would reflect the situation in South Korea, which has tested up to 10,000 per day and where the mortality rate is just over 1%.

The German government’s policy is to “do everything to find, isolate, test and treat each case” and “identify each contact person”.

The German National Association of Compulsory Health Insurance Doctors said they have the ability to test around 16,000 per day.

Britain, meanwhile, has tested around 84,000 people in total since the outbreak began two months ago, which means that the real number of infections is likely to be much higher than the official total of 6,600.

The NHS does not recommend that all individuals with coronavirus symptoms be tested, stating that patients suspected of having a virus should stay home if they can cope.

The United States also faced delays in launching mass tests, while Italian hospitals and doctors were overwhelmed by the scale of the crisis.

The patients known in Germany are also younger than those in Italy, probably lowering the death rate of a virus that is known to be more dangerous for older people.

Germany also has more intensive care beds than Italy, France or Britain, which means patients could recover more quickly.

The head of the German public health institute said today that “we are seeing signs that the exponential growth curve is slightly flattening”, although the institute’s figures have shown an increase in cases in the past 24 hours.

The news came when Chancellor Angela Merkel’s first coronavirus test turned negative after entering quarantine because a doctor who gave her a vaccination tested positive.

She entered quarantine yesterday, but Deputy Chancellor Olaf Scholz said today that she is healthy but works from home.

The doctor had visited Merkel, 65, on Friday to vaccinate her against pneumococcal bacteria.

A second possibility is that the mortality rate in Germany is lower because infected people are younger.

Data from around the world have shown that older people are more exposed to the risk of death if infected with the new coronavirus.

The average age of the overall population of Germany is the second highest in the EU, behind only Italy.

However, the German health institute says that the average age of virus patients in Germany is 46 years old, while in Italy it is 63 years old and in Britain it is thought to be 64.

More than 70% of people identified as infected in Germany are between 20 and 50 years old, head of the Lothar Wieler institute recently said.

As in Scandinavia, the first infections in Germany have been identified in people who had recently returned from ski holidays in Italy or Austria and are likely to be younger.

However, it is also possible that the age discrepancy is itself caused by Germany’s mass tests, which could detect younger patients with mild symptoms who are not confirmed as virus patients elsewhere.

Another possibility is that Germany’s low mortality rate is cause for alarm because some victims are missing.

The German health institution says it generally does not test coronavirus deaths if they have not been tested during their lifetime.

‘We do not consider post mortem tests a decisive factor. We work on the principle that patients are tested before they die, “says the agency.

However, Marylyn Addo of the University of Hamburg medical center told the Guardian that there was unlikely to be a large number of missed cases.

“I have yet to see any data that could suggest a large number of untested crown-related deaths that don’t appear in the statistics,” he said.

“Respiratory clinics have been on the alert for the virus for weeks, so I would be very surprised if there was a significant number of unexplored deaths.”

Furthermore, it is not clear whether this would be a bigger problem in Germany than elsewhere.

A similar theory has been put forward in Bergamo, northern Italy, where officials say the unusually high mortality rate is not fully explained by confirmed virus cases.

This suggests that more patients could have died in Bergamo without Covid-19 having ever been diagnosed.

Two other doctors die of coronavirus in France, bringing the total to three

Two other doctors died after contracting coronavirus in France, officials said today, a day after the country reported the first death of a doctor who treated Covid-19 patients.

One of the doctors, a 66-year-old gynecologist in Mulhouse near the border with Switzerland and Germany, was infected by a patient during a consultation, according to his clinic.

The other was a 60-year-old doctor in a Saint-Avold hospital near Metz, further north along the German border, according to the mayor of the city.

Both died on Sunday when officials announced the death of a 67-year-old doctor who was among the first to treat coronavirus cases in the northern Oise department, which was seriously affected by the epidemic.

Health experts warn that many French hospitals are already overflowing with coronavirus cases, although the government runs to establish military field hospitals to help cope with a shortage of beds.

Mulhouse has imposed its own night curfew in addition to national house confinement rules that seek to reduce the virus, which has spread rapidly in eastern France.

France is also experiencing a shortage of ventilators for the care of seriously ill patients, face masks and other protective equipment for healthcare professionals.

The French National Health Service reported Sunday that 674 people had died in the country so far – an increase of 112 in 24 hours.

By AFP

There are also signs that the German health service is better equipped with intensive care facilities.

Germany currently has 25,000 intensive care beds complete with respiratory support, meaning that patients have so far been able to recover quickly.

The government also said it planned to double this figure within the next few weeks to prevent hospitals from being overwhelmed.

Germany is therefore better equipped than France, which only has around 7,000 intensive care beds, while Italy has around 5,000.

In Britain, the NHS’s latest figures show that there are just over 4000 intensive care beds across England, with health secretary Matt Hancock declaring Sunday that there are 5,000 fans available in the UK.

The blocking measures recently introduced by Germany are unlikely to account for the low mortality rate.

The German public collection rule for two was only introduced yesterday, too recently to be shown in the data.

This is especially true in Germany, where official data has sometimes lagged behind other counts such as Johns Hopkins University data.

In any case, Germany’s quarantine measures are even less stringent than Spain, France or Italy, which have imposed drastic national blockades.

Contrary to national action in Italy and France, much of the response in Germany was left to the governments of its 16 states, which decided on their own to close schools.

German officials believe it is too early to say whether the current figures offer an accurate picture.

Lothar Wieler, head of Germany’s leading public health institution, says he doesn’t expect big differences in long-term mortality rates.

The latest quarantine measure, which prohibits meetings of more than two people, will also be imposed by individual states.

“Our behavior is the most effective way” of slowing down the infection rate, Chancellor Angela Merkel said yesterday.

Certain exceptions to the public meeting rule will be allowed, even for families who live under one roof and go out together for fresh air.

Companies such as massage centers and hairdressers where people come into close contact will also be closed.

And restaurants will remain closed across Germany except for take-away food.

Merkel appealed to people’s “reason and empathy” in implementing the restrictions, saying she had been “very moved” by the way people had followed the measures so far.

“It is vitally vital to obey the rule” to stay at least 6 feet away from other people, Merkel said, adding that “at that distance the risk of infection is close to zero.”

Merkel herself is being quarantined at home after being treated by a doctor who has since tested positive, a government spokesman said yesterday.

On Friday the doctor had visited Merkel to vaccinate her against pneumococcal bacteria.

It may take some time to determine whether the registrar is himself infected since “a test would not yet be fully conclusive,” said spokesman Seffert Seibert.

Merkel has been in office for more than 14 years and has generally been in good health, except for a mysterious series of trembling spells from last summer.

The veteran leader previously broke his pelvis in a cross-country skiing accident in 2014.
