Uses martial arts techniques to injure policemen trying to stop an illegal party – Portugal

The PSP announced this Tuesday the arrest of six people in Greater Lisbon for crimes against public authority during the dispersal of gatherings. In one of the events, the participants, who “uttered injuries and threats” to the police, resorted to martial arts techniques to escape the authorities.

In a statement, the Lisbon Metropolitan Command of the PSP states that a detention took place on Sunday, in the parish of Mina d’Água, Amadora, before a gathering on the public road, even after the authorities had been on the spot and dispersed people, warning for the illegality of the concentration.

However, the PSP was called back to the place, where it found another gathering, one of the men said that he would not leave the space, at the same time that he directed injuries against the police. He was arrested for disobedience, as well as for the crime against public authority.

The remaining citizens at the scene fled, no longer allowing any arrests or identifications.

In the same dawn, at 3:45 am, five more men were detained for being suspected of committing crimes of offenses against the qualified physical agent of authority, injuries and disobedience.

After several noise alerts at the unspecified location, the policemen went to a residence where they found a party going on, with about 20 to 30 people.

During the departure from the house in question, the participants “made injuries and threats” to the police, which led to four arrests.

When these were taking place, the remaining citizens advanced towards the police “with a hostile, challenging and aggressive body posture”. In the attempt to immobilize, one of the suspects – the fifth detainee – always tried to evade, using martial arts techniques.

Two policemen had to receive hospital treatment with various injuries.

The six detainees have already been brought before the court, all of whom have been given a term of identity and residence (the least serious coercion measure), according to the police.

This measure is of mandatory application whenever a citizen is constituted accused. In addition to the identification of the accused, he is obliged to appear before the authorities whenever the law requires it or is notified to do so.

The suspect is also unable to change his residence or be absent from it for more than five days without communicating how he can be found.

In order to control the spread of covid-19, the Government placed mainland Portugal in a contingency situation as of 00:00 this Tuesday and until September 30th.

The new rules to contain covid-19 – most of which have already been applied this summer in the Lisbon Metropolitan Area – include limiting concentrations to 10 people, unless they belong to the same household, on public roads and in commercial establishments, and prohibiting the sale of alcoholic beverages in service areas or at fuel filling stations.

In retail establishments, including supermarkets and hypermarkets, the sale of alcoholic beverages is prohibited from 20:00.

The consumption of alcoholic beverages continues to be banned on the public road, and alcohol is also banned in outside spaces of restaurants and beverages after 8:00 pm, except in the context of meal service.

Is a second wave of coronavirus coming to Europe? – Present

European epidemiologists warn which countries should start preparing for a second wave of covid-19.

The covid-19 outbreak is far from over. The World Health Organization (WHO) points out that it is not long before the 10 million infected people are reached worldwide and there are even countries where the rate of new cases has increased again in recent weeks as restrictions are being lifted. One of the most worrying cases is Germany, but the country.

The second wave of SARS-CoV-2 has been mentioned even before most European countries have reached the peak of the outbreak internally, but no one has ever been able to predict when it would arrive, with the most consensus opinion that it should arrive after summer. But now there are those who say that this second wave may come during the summer months.

The scientific community defines the “wave” – ​​albeit informally – in comparison with the waves of the sea. If the natural waves are counted from the moment the descent of water is replaced by a sudden flood. In the case of viruses, the end of the first “wave” is counted when a peak is reached and then it moves to a situation in which the pandemic is minimally controlled. When there is a systematic increase in cases again, the second wave is mentioned.

Even with a few hundred cases appearing every day in Portugal, a second wave could be talked about, according to researchers from the National Institute of Health Ricardo Jorge. “Since the first Covid-19 case notified in Portugal, the country remains in an epidemic situation”, however, in the region of Lisbon and Vale do Tejo (LVT) “the trend and the magnitude of the values ​​of the epidemic curve do not allow us exclude – or conclude unequivocally – from a second phase of growth “, the researchers told Lusa.

The researchers say that the containment measures adopted led to a reduction in the rate of transmission of the infection in the community, but did not eliminate the circulation of the virus, allowing “flattening of the epidemic curve”, which is consistent with the continuous occurrence of new cases of disease over time. Hence it is not yet possible to speak of a new wave in Lisbon, but rather the continuation of the first wave of cases. The truth is that Portugal has had more than 700 cases per day (it had up to one day with almost 1,500 new infections) and currently it has been normally above 350, but below 400, with some variations.

However, there are countries that have had the outbreak under control and are now grappling with a large increase in cases. Iran, for example, which lifted restrictions in April, returned to around 3,000 cases a day in the past month after reaching less than 1,000 a day.

Germany is also preparing for a possible second wave after an outbreak in a slaughterhouse in the town of Gütersloh, which has been in confinement since Tuesday. The company had more than 1,500 positive cases of covid-19. However, the German government says it is acting quickly to control the outbreak and this Friday the number of new cases has decreased again, as well as the rate of contagion which stands at 0.59, after having been above 1 , 01 this week. Portugal and Switzerland also have an index above 1.0. But in Germany, new cases increased by 36.7%, while in Switzerland, they were 15.1% compared to the previous week.

The difference is that Portugal has already announced new restrictive measures (mainly in the Greater Lisbon region, where a new outbreak has been reported) and these two other European countries are resisting this decision, trying to control the outbreak without resorting to general confinement.

Maurizio Cecconi, a doctor at the Humanitas University Hospital in Milan, Italy, told the Euronews: “We are ready for second wave patients. What happened at the beginning of the epidemic is that we were taken by surprise”.

In an open letter published in the British Medical Journal, British experts alerted the government of that country to the evidence that indicates that local outbreaks are increasingly likely and a second wave a real risk “.

Jozef Kesecioglu, president of the European Society for Intensive Care Medicine, believes that the second wave is not as serious as the first and says that there is a plan, both at the level of national governments, local governments and hospitals for extra beds .

INSA researchers say that the likelihood of new epidemic waves may be influenced by external factors that favor the spread of the virus, or by the occurrence of genetic changes in the virus that increase its transmission capacity in the human population. “For example, other respiratory viruses, such as the flu virus, circulate with epidemic expression in the autumn and winter months, but it is not yet known whether this will be the case for SARS-CoV-2”, they add.
