Posted workers at the heart of foci of contamination in Provence

More than 250 seasonal workers have been tested positive for the coronavirus in the Bouches-du-Rhône, the Vaucluse and the Gard. If the evolution of the epidemic is judged to be “favourable “ by the regional Agency of health (ARS) Provence-Alpes-Côte d’azur, the accommodation conditions and isolation of these workers pose a question, and may even promote infections, according to several trade unions.

Promiscuity, mattresses on the floor, lack of access to water, unsanitary conditions : “some places are not decentpointe Jean-Yves Constantin, member of the CFDT and vice-president of the MSA (Mutuelle sociale agricole). The prefect has already taken two orders to close accommodations, housing seasonal workers “, including bungalows. Pointing to the absence of sanitary measures to be sufficient, the CFDT has sued nine farmers and a company acting Spanish, Tuesday, June 23.

Shared accommodation

“By definition, it is difficult to enforce the sanitary measures in places of collective accommodationnotes Sylvain Hutin, director-general of the MSA, Provence-Azur. The agricultural activity in and of itself lends itself well to compliance measures barriers. “

The company, referred to also by several judicial procedures, provides each year about 1 400 workers posted to the operators of provence, according to the prefecture of the Bouches-du-Rhône.

Mostly from Latin America or North Africa, they have a Spanish work permit, and can perform according to the terms of european law. They are housed by the farmers, or in housing provided by the company acting in Spanish, Terra Fecundis, and transported to the farms according to the needs in workforce.

“No quarantine has not been observed”

“Some of them would have crossed the border during the containment outside of the periods permitted, notes Jean-Yves Constantin. But we have no idea of the volume. “ The ARS is currently working to identify the chain of infection.

Other seasonal workers came legally, after the circular of 20 may, taken by the government to alleviate the shortage of labour in several sectors, especially in agriculture. But no quarantine has not been observed “regrets Stephan Dainotti, secretary of the CGT des Bouches-du-Rhône. The text could not, that measures the minimum.The workers had to comply with the gestures barriers, and stay on the farm “specifies Sylvain Hutin.

Since, the health authorities are trying to correct. We have put in place of the brigades with the ARS, and the Red Cross, to perform testing, and supportincentives for operators to comply with the protocols “, contends Scott Hutin. Workers with a positive Covid-19 are then placed in isolation for fourteen days.

270 work stoppages issued

But also, you can’t force anyone to observe this quatorzaine “tip Stephan Dainotti, of the CGT. Ces workers have the habit of living in community. Moreover, they are in extreme precariousness and the fear of not being paid if they go out of business “warning , does it again, stressing that the case contact continue to mix with other workers “. A hundred of them has been placed in solitary confinement in two structures of the department, to Miramas and Salon-de-Provence, on a voluntary basis.

“To encourage them to comply with the quatorzaine, it is necessary to provide guarantees, and including work stoppages.”underlines Sylvain Hutin. The mutual has issued 270 stops, which should give right to the payment of daily allowances.

The issue of per diems

But the unions are dubious about the effectiveness of these payments. By their status, these employees are members in Spain and under the Spanish social security system. Gold, many have not started their contract, or evidence of whether or not they are declared “pointe Jean-Yves Constantin, which evokes the possibility that these employees are a minima “that is to say, only a couple of hours in the month, while they work full-time.However, in Spain, this level of reporting does not open right to compensation. “

“These clusters reveal the reception conditions, and seasonal employees, and highlight an entire pan of French agriculture, which works with labor,”note Aurélie Button, of the Confédération paysanne, engaged in several legal proceedings with the company working on secondment. Same s’“il should not generalize “, warns Jean-Yves Constantin. The FDSEA alert, it, against the denigration of the agricultural employers “.

FDA approves COVID-19 test to be done at home, while in Miami they test people without symptoms – Telemundo Miami (51)

The COVID-19 diagnostic center at Charles Hadley Park in Miami-Dade County now extends its capacity to asymptomatic adults over 65. Located at 1350 NW and 50th Street, those interested should call 305 – 960 – 5050 to request an appointment.

But if you can’t get out of the house, the
US Food and Drug Administration, FDA,
authorizes home coronavirus testing.

The test, created by the Corporation of
Laboratorios de America, (LabCorp), can be done by the patient himself and
consists of collecting a nasal sample, using the self-collection kit of
LabCorp. It contains the appropriate cotton swabs for this type of
exam. Once finished, the patient must send their sample in a package
isolated, to the LabCorp laboratory for later analysis.

FDA Commissioner Stephen M. Hahn said
that this new coronavirus test variant is as reliable and safe as
those currently practiced in diagnostic sites.

These kits will be available to the population in the coming weeks at a cost of $ 119. The first LabCorp Kits will be for healthcare personnel and for emergency personnel.

De Blasio presents “war” budget and demands urgent rescue from the Government – Telemundo New York (47)

NEW YORK – Ensuring health, safety, food and a roof for all are the priorities of the budget presented this Thursday by the city of New York, some accounts of “war” in the face of the coronavirus crisis, which come accompanied by an appeal to the American president Donald Trump to allow a “rescue” of the Big Apple.

With tax revenues slumping as a result of the slowdown in economic activity, the mayor, Bill de Blasio, announced “painful” cuts of more than $ 2 billion to try to balance the budget in the year that begins in June.

According to his calculations, New York is going to lose some 7,400 million dollars in income, a “horrible” number, according to admitted De Blasio, that requires a determined intervention of the federal Government.

The mayor urged Washington to cover this deficit in full and warned that without that money, the basic needs of New Yorkers cannot be guaranteed.

“If they can find 58,000 million to rescue the airlines, surely they can find 7,500 million for the largest city in the country,” stressed the mayor.

Democrat De Blasio appealed directly to Trump, whom he asked for a clear signal of support for his hometown for Senate Republicans to give the green light to necessary aid.

As he insisted, the city is already doing everything possible on its part, with a budget of $ 89.3 billion, $ 6 billion less than the proposal that the City Council had initially made in January, $ 3.4 billion less than last year’s accounts and using the reserves he had accumulated to have “balanced” accounts.

Among other things, the budget foresees that all public activities be drastically limited and, for example, this summer the swimming pools will not be opened.

De Blasio also warned New Yorkers not to hold out too much hope about beach opening, given the risk of contagion from the coronavirus posed by the huge crowds seen in places like Coney Island.

Public resources, he insisted, will be devoted to basic issues: health, safety, food and housing.

“These are four things that people are mostly thinking about and the government has to focus on those four things. Things that would have been a priority two or three months ago cannot be now. Things we would like to focus on in times of peace cannot be the priority in times of war and these are times of war, “said de Blasio.

The Democrat also warned Trump and Republicans that their desire to restart the economy as soon as possible will be ruined if the basic needs of the population are not met or if they precipitate and cause a resurgence of COVID-19. .

Trump, De Blasio insisted, has only one chance to do this well and, if he is wrong, he will regret it for a long time.

In addition, New York Police Commissioner Dermot Shea offered a video conference on Thursday to detail how the coronavirus has affected the city’s police forces to date.

Specifically, the New York police have registered 7,155 positive cases for COVID-19 among its members, about 20% of its staff and 27 officers have died from the virus.

Shea also detailed that it is estimated that between 1,400 and 1,500 of the sick police officers have returned to work.

“You start to see a little light at the end of the tunnel and it seems that the worst is over,” said Shea, who regretted the losses and asked for a moment of silence.

CLASSIFYING WORKERS ‘EXPOSURE TO SARS-COV-2

Workers’ risk from occupational exposure to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, during an outbreak could range from very high risk to high, medium, or low (caution). The level of risk depends in part on the type of industry, the need for contact with less than 6 feet of people known or suspected to be infected with SARS-CoV-2, or the requirement for repeated or prolonged contact with people. known or suspected to be infected with SARS-CoV-2.

To help employers determine appropriate precautions, OSHA has divided job duties into four levels of risk exposure: very high, high, medium, and low.

The Occupational Risk Pyramid displays the four levels of risk exposure in the form of a pyramid to represent the likely distribution of risk. Most American workers are likely to be at low (precautionary) or medium exposure risk levels. MORE INFORMATION HERE.

Covid-19. Mercies ask hospitals to stop returning patients to homes

For Manuel Lemos, returning an elderly person with covid-19 to the home means “putting the fox in the chicken coop”, because homes have neither the conditions nor the structure ”for this and the“ virus spreads ”.

Noting that delivery to family members is also not a solution, Manuel Lemos proposed the creation of specific facilities to welcome elderly people who test positive for covid-19, either by selecting a home by county or district for that purpose, or by setting up a field hospital..

The important thing, he said, is that in these places all the human resources and equipment needed to treat these people are available, and there is an open route for hospitals.

“Letting positive people stay in the homes of the elderly without strengthening health resources is not worthy and it must be said,” said Manuel Lemos.

The homes of artists, a haven in quarantine

“There is nothing traditional, neither inherited, nor repeated or copied,” wrote Josep Pla on the house of Salvador Dalí in Portlligat. The house in Cap de Creus, defined by the same painter as onena “authentic biological structure” that grew in meters and rooms as it added new fishermen’s huts to the original structure, it is locked and locked, like all museums, to prevent the epidemic from getting stronger. The house museum, however, is still open.

The technology allows a virtual tasting of what was the only stable house of the Figuerenc painter, the place where he usually lived and worked from 1930 to 82, when with the death of Gala he settled in the castle of Púbol. Apart from the entrance to the maze, the virtual visitor can also access the outside of the house, overlooking the bay of Portlligat, a space where, according to Dalí, “there is a geological tranquility” It is a unique planetary case, “an oasis of peace that perhaps helps us better pass confinement.

But Portlligat’s house is not the only virtual refuge in the wake of the pandemic for art and culture lovers interested in exploring the homes of artists and creators.

Casa Masó, the birthplace of the architect of Girona and one of the most important works in its architecture, also proposes to take advantage of the quarantine for a virtual tour of the building on Ballesteries street in Girona, as a result of the successive union of four houses acquired by the Masó family between the mid 19th and early 20th centuries.

From the Rafael Masó Foundation page on Google Arts & Culture eYou can go around the different rooms, which retain the Noucentista decoration and furniture, discover the most important works on display and also visit some virtual exhibitions.

The comfortable but austere design of the dining room, chaired by the beautiful lamp designed by Masó; The furniture designed for the wedding of his brother Joan or the sewer are some of the rooms that can be explored, waiting for better times, to enjoy live views of the Onyar from the gallery, one of the most special corners of the home.

And already outside the Girona region, these days also receive virtual tours of the Villa Casals, the house that the cellist Pau Casals built in 1910 on the seafront of Sant Saltavor, in El Vendrell, where he lived until he had to be exiled; the so-called Casa Gaudí in Parc Güell in Barcelona, ​​a house showing the modernist urbanization that the architect’s residence was from 1906 and 1925, or the Cau Ferrat in Sitges, the workshop-workshop of Santiago Rusiñol.

Most Utahns do not have earthquake insurance. Will the Magna earthquake change this?

SALT LAKE CITY – Last month, Matt Gephardt of KSL TV investigated whether earthquake insurance is worth the investment for homeowners in Utah.

His question turned out to be premonitory.

After Wednesday’s 5.7 earthquake in Magna, which shocked Utah’s largest urban center, many homeowners will consider again: is earthquake insurance right for me?

Earthquake insurance, which is not part of standard homeowners’ policies, even in areas prone to earthquakes, may seem like a big investment for a low probability event. Deductibles are often higher than average policies because the risk is not spread among the population, but rather concentrated in specific areas. They typically range from 5% to 20%, according to the Utah insurance department, which can leave homeowners hooked for thousands even with insurance.

But go through a catastrophic earthquake without it and you may find insurance that offers no assistance.

“Utah is on the Wasatch Fault, which is an area at risk,” said Carole Walker, executive director of the Rocky Mountain Insurance Information Association. “So this is a wake-up call that Utah residents should at least consider purchasing separate seismic insurance, or make their policy available when available.”

Utah Insurance Department Commissioner Todd E. Kiser said that seismic insurance is becoming cheaper, especially for some homes.

“If your house is a structure, earthquake insurance is quite reasonable. It’s not very expensive,” said Kiser. “… it takes much longer to break down a wooden building than a brick building.”

It is important, Kiser said, to ask questions when purchasing seismic insurance: not only how the construction of the house will affect the premium, but also what each policy specifically covers. For example, he said, many seismic policies do not cover floods or landslides, even when that landslide follows an earthquake.

“If you live on a hill and are worried that the earthquake might shake the ground and make it unstable … and then you are worried about the collapse of the hill, that product is also available.”

He warned that Utahns buys and compares coverage between different companies and agents. “I would advise them to talk to several agents and ask those difficult questions,” said Kiser.

He also reminded residents to catalog their belongings so that they can demonstrate to insurance companies what they have lost in the event of a natural disaster.

Fabio Faschi, property and casualty manager, Policygenius manager, said that earthquake insurance could be “more difficult to evaluate” in Utah than, for example, in California, where earthquakes are more frequent.

“It will always be difficult for you to see the value of insurance until, unfortunately, a claim occurs,” said Faschi. “And that’s just the nature of the beast, right? Nobody wants to pay for their insurance until you have to use it. And an important thing in terms of evaluation is figuring out what will cover you.”

He said most seismic insurances will help not only with home repairs, but with replacing personal belongings and temporary life arrangements. The key, he said, is that customers “understand what they are getting” and evaluate the risk accordingly.

“I can never look at the price of an anti-seismic insurance policy and say” Oh, it’s too expensive, “said Faschi.

At Insurance Information Institute, spokeswoman Janet Ruiz said that earthquake insurance may be “a big investment”, but that “it may not be as expensive as you think”.

“So my encouragement is always to find out,” said Ruiz. “Maybe it’s completely convenient, and it’s a good thing.”

He said Utahns should not only consider insurance, but also think about adjusting older houses against earthquakes, which in turn could lower insurance premiums. “My encouragement is always to think about insuring your home financially because it’s often your biggest asset,” he said. “And it’s worth every penny, if you have damage after an earthquake, to be able to rebuild it.”

It is worth noting that the policies of standard homeowners may not cover an earthquake, but will usually cover a fire that may break out after one. In addition, insurers consider the initial earthquake and subsequent three days of aftershocks as a single event (which is why Utahns cannot purchase a policy at this time while the event continues); subsequent shocks require a second complaint, with another deductible.

However, Walker said he hopes other Utahns will consider seismic insurance in the days and weeks ahead.

“While it may not happen today or tomorrow,” Walker said, “we all want to think that the unthinkable will never happen. However, there is a seismic risk, as we saw yesterday (Wednesday).”

NHL pushes back the chronology on the potential recovery of the season – NBC Los Angeles

Don’t count on hockey being played early.

NHL has significantly scaled back its timeline to when it can potentially resume playing for several weeks, if not a month or more, following the new coronavirus pandemic.

The league and the NHL Players’ Association told players on Monday that they can return home – even outside of North America – and must self-isolate until March 27 while the season is pending. But the NHL also warned that it will not be able to give indications of the potential reopening of team practices for another 45 days, which could push any potential return to play in May.

The new directives follow the CDC’s recommendation for gatherings of 50 or more people in the United States for the next eight weeks. NHL said that “depending on world developments”, consideration will be given to reopening facilities after the end of the self-quarantine period in late March, but practices for the 31 teams would not occur at the end of April – soon.

“I think in light of the CDC’s recommendations, it’s hard to predict that we’re looking at many events here in March or even April, in my opinion,” said NHL player agent Jay Grossman.

This is a big move from Friday, when the league gave players the opportunity to return to the team’s facilities and train and skate in small groups.

The latest decision leaves open questions about whether NHL can complete its regular season, which was suspended Thursday with 189 games left, and whether it might be necessary to change its playoff format to prevent the postseason from going into the summer months. .

Last week, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said he remained optimistic about the resumption of the game and the concession of the Stanley Cup, which has been delivered every year since 1893 except for 1919 due to the Spanish flu epidemic and the 2005 when a blockade canceled the whole season.

Although NHL followed the NHB’s lead in suspending its season, Bettman declined to set a time frame on how long the “break” would last. Last week NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said his league break will likely last at least a month.

“The pause will be until it is appropriate, prudent and safe to start the backup,” said Bettman. “Nobody knows how long the break can be. Nobody, not even the medical community, can predict it with certainty.”

Bettman, the executive director of NHL and NHLPA, Don Fehr, each stated that they were not aware of positive results for the coronavirus.

Arizona defender Coyotes Aaron Ness became the first publicly known NHL player to be tested for COVID-19 on Monday. Ness’s agent, Neil Sheehy, said the results turned negative after his client followed NHL guidelines to look for tests for flu-like symptoms.

The NBA released a statement on Wednesday saying it would suspend the season until further notice after a Utah Jazz player has tested positive for coronavirus.

“He never thought he would have it initially, to be honest,” said Sheehy. “What happened was that the championship was saying if you have a sore throat, if you have a runny nose, if you have a cough, call the coach and don’t come on the track, and so he did.”

The new NHL directive to allow players to return home has led players and coaches to make plans to travel.

In Buffalo, New York, Sabers striker Marcus Johansson initially hoped to return home to Sweden on a flight from nearby Toronto. These plans changed when Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that the country was closing its borders except for Canadians and Americans, also imposing a 14-day self-quarantine on those entering the country.

Johansson was attempting to book a return flight to New York City.

The organization said Thursday that it is canceling tournaments due to the “evolution of the COVID-19 threat to public health”.

In an email to The AP, NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said there was little that the league could do with travel restrictions.

“It’s a consequence of where we are. Nobody is to blame,” Daly wrote.

The U.S. government has imposed a travel ban on non-citizens from Europe that runs until mid-April. There are currently 233 European players on the NHL lists, including scorer Leon Draisaitl from Germany, and there are under contract for minors. How many could go home is unknown.

“I’ve talked to some players who are doing their best to climb obviously to return to the safest and most comfortable environment they can reach at this point,” said Grossman.

Map: look at Coronavirus cases around the world

Meanwhile, the American Hockey League has followed NHL in a decision taken on Monday by its executive committee. The 31-team league has announced that the indefinite suspension of its regular season will not be lifted before May and also recommended that its teams work to return the players to their main homes.

Abroad, the Russia-based Kontinental Hockey League paused for a week during its playoffs to determine a new format and schedule for the six remaining teams. The decision came after the Finnish Jokerit and Barys Nur-Sultan, based in Kazakhstan, withdrew from the playoffs amid the pandemic.
