Airbnb rentals now regulated at European level

This decision was eagerly awaited, because many European cities, faced, like Paris, with a housing shortage, have tried to legislate to fight against the phenomenon of tourist rentals on Airbnb.

“A national regulation subjecting to authorization the rental, in a repeated manner, of premises intended for housing for short periods to a passing clientele who do not take up residence there, complies with Union law”, estimated the Court of Justice of the EU, based in Luxembourg, in its judgment.

“The fight against the shortage of housing intended for long-term rental constitutes an overriding reason in the public interest justifying such a regulation”, she added.

The European judges had been seized in 2018 by the Court of Cassation, supreme court of the judicial order in France, several questions relating to the provisions of the construction and housing code. Previously, the Court of Cassation was itself seized by two owners of Parisian studios, fined a total of 40,000 euros for having rented their property without the prior authorization of the town hall.

The case in France is not yet over: the French judge will now have to verify that the city of Paris provides evidence of a housing shortage.


Economic problems are driving companies to flee Argentina

(MENAFN – Al-Borsa News) An increasing number of foreign companies are heading to reduce the level of investment in Argentina or flee completely from the country, fearing the increasing intervention policies of the left-wing government, which aim to stabilize the faltering economy.

The Financial Times reported that the Chilean retail giant Vallabela has become the latest to join the chain of companies that announced their intention to withdraw from Argentina last week, as the government moved to tighten already stringent capital controls to protect dwindling foreign exchange reserves.

Argentine President Alberto Fernandez was able to achieve a major victory by reaching a deal with private sector creditors to restructure the $ 65 billion in external debt last month, but the outbreak of the epidemic after only 3 months of assuming the reins of power has impeded his attempts to rebuild investor confidence.

“It is an exaggeration to say that there is some kind of mass migration going on, but companies are struggling with the increasing trend of interventionist policies, which may worsen with deteriorating economic conditions as well,” said Kezia McKej, director at the consulting firm McLarty Associates.

The American auto parts manufacturer Aksalta, the German and French BASF company, Saint-Gobain Securit, and the French pharmaceutical company, Pierre Fabre, were among the other companies that left Argentina recently. Latin America decided to withdraw from the country last July.

The Coronavirus crisis has dealt a blow to the Argentine economy, which remains subject to one of the strictest and longest lockdowns in the world.

However, investors and analysts insist that the escalating state intervention is the main reason that companies made decisions to move away from Argentina, which they have not done anywhere else in the region.

McKeej of McLarty Associates added that the huge challenges posed by increasingly stringent capital controls, import restrictions and price increases bans are making companies in some sectors such as consumer goods increasingly unsustainable.

In addition, an executive at a multinational company operating in the country said, “In light of everything that’s happening here right now, you can forget about foreign companies making any investments at the moment.”

Alejandro Diaz, chief executive of the American Chamber of Commerce in Argentina, said controls on currency, imports and prices are deepening concerns and raising questions about developing business plans.

The “Financial Times” reported that some are using a brave face, such as “Fly Bondi”, the first low-cost airline in Argentina, despite the departures in the aviation sector in recent months.

“If the government can create a sound and fair regulatory environment, we will continue to invest in Argentina,” said Peter Yu, managing partner of Cartesian Capital, the controlling shareholder of Fly Bondi.

Despite expectations that the Argentine economy will contract by 12.1% in 2020, the economy is also expected to record a recovery of 5.5% in 2021, but economists say that expectations of an inflation rate of 29% next year are a very optimistic assumption, especially after The country has resorted to printing money a lot in recent months.

Economists fear that the recent tightening of capital controls only delays the devaluation. In this regard, economist Luis Secco said: “They are only buying time, and this does not solve the real problem.”

How to Clean a Mask Properly, Observe the Type and Cannot Be Arbitrary

Cloth mask illustration. © https: // – The use of masks in the midst of the Covid-19 case has become an obligation. This is because masks are claimed to be able to be a barrier to catching respiratory droplets or droplets that are released when people cough, sneeze, or talk. These droplets are what carry the virus from person to person, according to Dr. Steve Pergam, MPH, infection prevention medical director at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.

If the closest person inhales these droplets or droplets land in their mouth or nose, they are more likely to catch a viral infection. And if someone touches a contaminated mask and then touches their mouth or nose, they also have the potential for infection. Therefore, masks must be cleaned and sterilized regularly.

Here’s how to wash masks of various types that are commonly used again during a pandemic, so you can safely disinfect them. How to deal with medical grade masks that cannot easily be cleaned properly outside of a medical setting, cites Healthline.

How to Wash a Mask Fabric appropriately

Debra Goff, PharmD, FIDSA, FCCP, an infectious disease specialist and professor of pharmaceutical practice at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, said that masks fabricbandanas, scarves and neck protectors are all types of face masks that can be cleaned and reused.

For how to machine wash a cloth mask, wash your hands first. Then remove the mask, being careful not to touch the eyes, nose or mouth.

Put the mask directly in the washing machine and wash your hands immediately afterward. Goff recommends using regular detergent along with bleach and warm water recommended for this type of cloth mask.

After the mask is washed off, dry it until it is completely dry. If you plan to wash a cloth mask by hand, Goff recommends following the same procedure of washing your hands before removing the mask.

To disinfect your mask, soak it in a bleach solution containing 4 teaspoons of household bleach for every liter of water for 5 minutes. After soaking the mask, rinse thoroughly with water. Let the mask dry on its own.

How to Handle Medical Masks After Use

Kaiming Ye, PhD, professor and chair of the biomedical engineering department and director of the Center of Biomanufacturing for Regenerative Medicine at Binghamton University, State University of New York, says that certain types of masks, such as N95 and surgical masks, are designed for single masks or single-use use only. .

For most people, this means that masks have to be thrown in the trash after use. Ye said they can be reused in a professional setting if properly disinfected. For example, how to wash an N95 mask can be disinfected with germicidal UVC radiation or vapor phase hydrogen peroxide.

Ye noted, however, that no tests have been carried out on surgical mask disinfection or reuse, due to its low demand. If you can’t change the mask between uses, Goff suggests checking the mask when removing it. If the mask is dirty, torn, or wet with moisture, then you should definitely throw it away.

If they appear clean and intact, Goff recommends storing them in a clean paper bag or other breathable container between uses. Ideally, however, medical masks should not be reused after one use.

the chances that Perm Region will be lifted are high

On June 30, a meeting of the operational headquarters should be held in the Perm Territory, at which the possibility of removing a number of restrictions will be discussed. Two consecutive days – June 28 and 29 – the distribution coefficient of coronavirus in Prikamye is 0.79. This is one of the important indicators of the phased lifting of restrictions – for the second stage, it should be less than 0.8.

In addition, over the past three days, 510 beds were additionally re-profiled for COVID-19 treatment in the province. The indicator “availability of free bed fund” amounted to 67.7 percent.

– Over the past two days, key indicators have been kept in the Kama region at the level of standards for moving to the second stage of lifting restrictive measures, – said Sergey Nikiforov, Deputy Prime Minister of the Perm Territory, in charge of healthcare. – This allows us to discuss the draft plan for the transition to the second stage.

At the second stage, street cafes, museums and exhibition halls, shopping centers up to 800 square meters, children’s clubs, public organizations, research institutes, playgrounds and kindergartens, including private ones, will be opened.

As a source in the operational headquarters told Komsomolskaya Pravda, the chances are high that the second stage in the Perm Territory will begin on July 1.


“No need to hide from the virus in a cocoon!” – Perm epidemiologist about the current situation


very cheap and long-known drugs help save the lungs with coronavirus

Cloving hospital on the basis of the Medical Scientific and Educational Center (ISSC) Moscow State University named after M.V.Lomonosov took the first patients on April 21 and completed his work on June 13. It turned out that it was possible to achieve the best treatment results for COVID-19 in Moscow. Over the entire period, 4 patients died, and among severe patients who got mechanical ventilation, the mortality rate was less than 14% (for comparison, the average for the city and the world was up to 70 – 80%). Eighteen doctors out of 220 employees of the hospital were infected with coronavirus, there were no deaths among the medical staff.

What approaches were used at the University Hospital of Moscow State University to achieve such results? We continue the conversation with the head. Department of Therapy, Faculty of Fundamental Medicine, Moscow State University, Head of the Department of Age-Associated Diseases, Medical Scientific and Educational Center, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Cardiologist Yana Orlova.


– Most of those who are ill or are afraid to get sick are worried about fibrotic changes in their lungs. They say that you have developed special therapy that can reduce the risk of developing fibrosis. Is it possible?!

– Yes, we launched an appropriate clinical study. There are no final results yet, but we have developed clinical practice.

“What did you do to save the lungs?”

– We used a combination of bromhexine and spironolactone (both are long-known very cheap drugs. – Ed.). Bromhexine is an expectorant that has been prescribed to patients with pneumonia and cough for many years. At the same time, experimental data showed that this drug can block a specific enzyme and impede the penetration of coronavirus into cells. True, it was on this effect that we counted to a lesser extent in inpatients, since such an effect is important mainly in the early stages of the disease. But the expectorant effect of bromhexine really helps patients with COVID. I heard that our colleagues in Peter launched a study of bromhexine for prophylactic purposes. We will wait for the results.

– The second drug – spironolactone – is traditionally widely used in cardiology for the treatment of heart failure, severe hypertension. It has a small diuretic, magnesium and potassium-preserving effect, continues Yana. Orlova. – It has several mechanisms through which it can be useful in coronavirus infection.

Firstly, a mechanism that prevents the development of fibrosis in general in the body. There are works that, in particular, show that spironolactone reduces fibrosis in the heart. At the same time, it is known that the tendency to fibrosis is not local, but systemic – where there is more inflammation, there will certainly be fibrosis. And we see, of course, fibrotic changes in the “covide” in our patients. Therefore, we prescribed spironolactone as a drug for the prevention of this process.

Secondly, this drug blocks sex hormone receptors, in particular testosterone. Some published studies suggest that “high-testosterone” men suffer from “covid” more often and develop more severe fibrotic changes. Therefore, blocking these receptors for several weeks during COVID treatment may be useful in reducing the severity of complications. We are not talking about a longer intake, since male patients are unlikely to agree with a decrease in testosterone levels in the long term.

And perhaps the most important point. In almost all of our patients, we observed hypokalemia (a decrease in potassium levels. – Ed.). With coronavirus infection, potassium is intensely excreted from the body, and scientific articles even suggest that hypokalemia serves as the trigger for a cytokine storm. So spironolactone has a real chance to reduce the risk of this dangerous complication. But the main thing, in my opinion, is that lowering the level of potassium in the body is extremely harmful to the heart and triggers life-threatening rhythm disturbances, increasing the risk of sudden death. We, like all others, replenished potassium with droppers, but it was more effective to retain it in the body with the help of spironolactone.

– Yana Arturovna, how many patients did you have on average?

– About 10 – 14 days. But someone and 50 days.

– Have you noticed signs by which it can be assumed that the disease in the person brought is likely to go the hard way?

– Such studies were carried out in the world, our clinical practice confirmed them. Men certainly get worse than women; the elderly are heavier than the young; overweight people are heavier than overweight patients. Men with a classic male type of baldness, a lot of facial hair, we can say brutal men get sick harder.

– Under what conditions did you discharge patients?

– We acted as close as possible to the recommendations Ministry of Health: so that the temperature for three days was not higher than 37.5 degrees; so that C-reactive protein (an indicator of inflammation) is lower than 10 mg / l, and saturation, that is, the level of oxygen in the blood, is higher than 96%.


– How often do you get sick doctors and nurses?

– In the first month no one got sick at all. We have a very powerful epidemiological service. The head of the sanitary-epidemiological department, a senior researcher, correctly organized the whole process, and for the first two weeks she personally worked in the sanitary inspection room at the exit from the “red zone” and helped doctors and nurses who were exhausted after the shift safely remove protective clothing.

Then both people’s fatigue and viral load accumulated. By the middle of the second month, sick people began to appear. There were no seriously ill patients. We treated part of the staff in our observation, part of it was treated at home. In total, 18 people were infected from the medical staff (less than 10%).

– Doctors take something for prevention? Vitamins C, D, Zinc?

– I saw the recommendations of American nutritionists, they speak out positively about taking zinc, melatonin and vitamin C. There were somewhat conflicting data on vitamin D. But we did not give any such recommendations to our employees. We have all the prevention was associated with minimizing contacts and other measures of epidemiological safety.

Other states with a large number of deaths are Michigan (6,133), Pennsylvania (6,630), California (5,814), and Connecticut, with 4,307.

Health experts have said that it is seeing an alarmingly high number of infections among young people who are coming out again, often without masks and without follow other social distancing measures.

Governor Greg Abbott took the decision to the spike in cases of COVID-19.

“It is evident that the increase in cases is driven primarily by a certain type of activities, as the assistance of texans in the bars,” stated Abbott.

Abbott had undertaken one of the calendarizaciones most dynamic of reopening in the country. The republican had stood up to the demands of that order the use of facemasks and also had refused until last week to allow local governments to impose such a measure.

“The doctors told us at the time, and what is said to who will listen, that this would be a disaster. And what has been”, stated the judge, democrat Clay Jenkins, the authority of highest rank in the county of Dallas. “Once again, the governor acts with slowness.

Colleen Corbett, a maid of 30 years who works at two facilities in Tampa, was said to be upset and worried to stay again without a job, but pointed out that the restrictions are the correct size. Most customers were not using masks, he said.

“It seems as if they have forgotten that there is a pandemic or just left to worry,” said Corbett.

Several of the states most affected, such as Arizona and Arkansas, have republican governors who have resisted efforts to legislate mandatory use of facemasks and have reiterated the president’s desire to Donald Trump to revive the economy quickly, despite warnings that there could be new outbreaks of coronavirus.

The experts of the federal government estimate that they would be more than 20 million infected with the virus in the US. To see more of Telemundo, visit

The number of deaths from coronavirus in the united States has been around 600 per day recently, compared with about 2,200 in the peak reached in April. Some experts doubt that it will reach that level again due to advances in treatment and prevention.

The virus has caused some 125,000 deaths and has infected almost 2.5 million people in the united States, according to a tally by the Johns Hopkins University. But health authorities believe that the number of cases is 10 times higher. At the global level, the virus has claimed close to half a million lives.

Louisiana reported its second day with more than 1,300 confirmed cases, a number that made the democratic governor, John Bel Edwards to suspend a greater lifting of restrictions on mobility.
