Australians will not be able to travel abroad until 2022

Authorities are hoping Australia’s estimated 25 million people will focus on travel within their own country.

LAustralians will not be able to travel abroad until 2022 due to the coronavirus pandemic, the government said.

The government assumes the Australian population will only be vaccinated by the end of 2021. Until then, exotic travel plans are best to put aside immediately. For countries that have got the virus under control, like neighboring New Zealand, the borders will open sooner.

Authorities hope Australia’s estimated 25 million people will now focus primarily on travel within their own country. A campaign with the slogan “Holiday Here This Year” is expected to give the tourism industry a boost as summer approaches in Australia. For example, Australians are encouraged to take a surf vacation in Byron Bay or take a boat trip on the Great Barrier Reef.

“As our international borders may remain closed for a while and the summer holidays will arrive in a few months, we call on all Australians (…) to try something new and book a vacation in Australia,” said Tuesday. Tourism Minister Simon Birmingham. So far, however, traveling within one’s own country is not an easy task either, as many state borders are still closed.

In Australia, around 27,000 people have tested positive for COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic. Some 900 sick people have died from the virus.

What government housing subsidies can you apply for? | Housing | My finances

Housing is laying the pillars for the economic reactivation. In May, in the midst of a pandemic, Housing Minister Jonathan Malagón announced the launch of down payment and interest rate subsidies for 200,000 new residential units..

Lea: (Investment in housing would move $ 30 billion by the end of the year)

Half of the subsidies correspond to 100,000 social housing units (VIS), and to date 15,000 places have already been delivered. The other 100,000 are for No VIS, and are available from last week.

Lea: (“We are almost at precovid sales levels”)

These are in addition to other programs that the Government already has to support the purchase of housing. Camacol, the building union, assures that 85% of the homes on offer have some government benefit, so from Portafolio we present what you should know about each subsidy.

Those interested in accessing the programs presented by the Government as a result of the health emergency should bear in mind that, if they earn less than 4 minimum wages ($ 3.5 million), they may apply to VIS subsidies, but they must pay attention to the price of the property.

At the national level, homes with a maximum value of 135 minimum wages ($ 118.5 million) are recognized as VIS, but in Bogotá, Medellín, Cali, Barranquilla, Bucaramanga and Cartagena those below 150 minimum wages ($ 131.6 million) are of social interest.

Now, to access one of the No VIS subsidies, there is no income cap, but it is necessary to consider that it only applies to homes up to 500 minimum wages ($ 438 million). The Government will subsidize 60,000 coverage for first homes and 40,000 for second purchases.

Among the requirements is that the beneficiary cannot have previously received other subsidies to buy a residence, either from the Government or through compensation funds, and that the support they will receive corresponds to a monthly subsidy of $ 439,000 for 7 years, equivalent to 42 minimum wages (more than $ 36 million). “When we establish a value of $ 439,000 for all Colombian families, regardless of the value of the home, what allows us is that we are helping those who buy the cheapest apartments more intensively. The approach to this policy is more progressive, ”said Minister Malagón.

This program has aroused contrary opinions, although it is not a new formula, since historically other support has been given to the segment, such as the Reserve Fund for the Stabilization of the Mortgage Portfolio (Frech) No VIS or the Programs to Boost Productivity and Employment in Colombia (Pipe and Pipe 2.0), from the government of Juan Manuel Santos.

Among its critics is the academic and professor at the University of the Andes, Marc Hofstetter, who questioned the measure through his social networks, which he described as a “bad idea.” Hofstetter acknowledged that while the industry has a multiplier effect that pulls other sectors out, this is not targeting those who really need it.

“A home that can buy a house with more than $ 400 million in Colombia is not one that needs help from the State to acquire a private asset like a house. Much less one to which we should allocate such amounts, “said the economist.

The former Deputy Minister of Finance, Andrés Pardo Amézquita, assured that it is a valid discussion, because when a subsidy is granted, many actors participate in all the machinery, for which he suggested separating several fronts of the discussion.
“One of the important investment issues is precisely in construction, because it generates significant linkages in the rest of the economy. The good thing about non-VIS housing, when compared to VIS, is that it generates much more added value, therefore it also generates more demand in the rest of the economy and more jobs. But from a social point of view it is different ”, he explained.

Camacol projects that this year 110,000 VIS housing units will be sold, which will move investments of $ 13 billion, while Non-VIS, which would only reach 51,000 units, would entail investments of $ 17 billion. However, Sandra Forero, president of the union, mentioned in an interview with Portafolio that the VIS segment should be promoted more, with more subsidies from Mi Casa Ya.

This is the Government’s flagship subsidy program, which has the goal of providing 500,000 housing grants in the four-year period. Families with an income of less than four times the minimum wage ($ 3.5 million) can apply to this program, and depending on their income, they can obtain a subsidy of between $ 17 to $ 26 million. Mi Casa Ya also has a benefit component on the interest rate, which is extended to households that earn up to eight minimum wages ($ 7.02 million).

Finally, the other support for housing that the State has is Semillero de Propietarios, a program that promotes savings and subsidizes rent with purchase option. Households with incomes below 2 minimum wages ($ 1.7 million) can apply to this and, together with the Government, the beneficiaries contribute $ 850,000 for 24 months, and save part of it. Once the time is up, you can apply to Mi Casa Ya

THE CONCURRENT SUBSIDY

Another possibility that Colombians have is to apply for a concurrent subsidy, which allows integrating the aid for home purchase of the Mi Casa Ya program and the benefits granted by the Family Compensation Funds. Only households that earn up to 2 minimum wages ($ 1.7 million) can apply for this subsidy.

The first step is to process said subsidy with the compensation fund, and later apply for the program to the Ministry of Housing. So far this government 7,000 subsidies of this type have been awarded. President Iván Duque assured that the goal of his administration is to deliver 13,500 subsidies of this type.

They request that advanced medical students can carry out the Compulsory Final practices

The provincial deputy, Betina Florito, entered a project requesting that advanced medical students can carry out the Mandatory Final practices. The initiative contemplates that for this purpose the students must comply with the corresponding health protocols.

“If the coronavirus pandemic did not mediate, these students, more than 600 throughout the province, would have received their degrees in November 2020. Today they could be collaborating in the emergency, to the extent of their knowledge and experiences. That is why we have to make quick decisions to have at least those human resources in our hospitals and health centers, ”said the legislator of the Somos Vida block.

In this regard, Rodrigo Mediavilla, director of Third Level Health, indicated in a radio interview that beyond the occupation of the beds, there are also problems due to human resources. “We can generate four more hospitals, but if we don’t have the people to work in these hospitals, it is a pointless effort. In 6 months we can buy many supplies, but in 6 months a therapist is not prepared. The human resource is finite, but in all areas, not only in intensive care ”concluded the provincial official.

Faced with these statements, the provincial legislator said that “the necessary steps must be taken to unblock the situation. That time that those students lost is not recovered. But all the specialists maintain that until we have the vaccine, the infections will grow with the risk of saturation of the official health structure. The province will need to have more professionals to face the situation ”, he assured. “We believe that it is vitally important to look for alternatives because, in recent weeks, the Pandemic has been hitting hard and we notice that the contagion curve is clearly growing. If we do not take quick measures, we can make the public health system collapse,” concluded the legislator.

Second epidemiological peak of the year arrives in Colombia – Health


The rainy season that runs through much of the country increases the incidence of acute respiratory infections (ARI), warn health authorities. And in this context, the so-called second respiratory peak of the year, which coincides with these conditions, would occur in Colombia from September to November, as has happened in previous years.

These cyclical events would coincide with the covid-19 pandemic, which could put stress on the health system, that it is necessary to attenuate by reinforcing the measures, assured Alejandro Gómez López, Secretary of Health of Bogotá.

“The cases began to increase since August and added to an assistance liability that due to the quarantine effect of respiratory diseases and other chronic diseases, he demanded that from September 1 the agendas be opened to attend to these people in a priority and thus mitigate this situation ”, he says.

(Read also: The definitive guide to take care of covid-19 in the new reality)

Luis Jorge Hernández, a doctor in public health from the Universidad de los Andes, says that around 15 respiratory viruses are monitored in the country, including five different coronaviruses from covid-19 and that they have a seasonal behavior.

These have a special impact, since they are added to influenza viruses and respiratory syncytial virus at a time when the country is completely open. Their confluence can create a cluster of infections that require reinforcing the measures defined for covid 19, that also benefit others, he says.

For his part, Hugo Caballero, pulmonologist at the Marly Clinic, affirms that respiratory diseases, whatever their origin, they decrease lung defenses and exacerbate other chronic ones.

These days there has been an increase in influenza cases, which cannot be confused with covid, but which require equal care, for which vaccination should be insisted especially in populations at risk, he said.

Let’s change asks that medical students can do the mandatory final practices

The Buenos Aires deputy of Together for Change, the radical Alejandra Lordén, proposed to request the Ministry of Education of the Nation, evaluate the possibility that all those students of Universities in the country of the Health Sciences careers can finish the PFO.

These are students of medicine, nursing, obstetrics, kinesiology, nutrition, who are doing or waiting to start with the Practica Final Obligatoria (PFO), so that they can end them and achieve the qualifying title to practice the profession.

“Seniors from Medicine of the National University of La Plata They made a video to make known that they want to obtain the corresponding title to be in the front line of battle against the Coronavirus ”, explained the deputy in this regard.

In the video the students express: “Only in the UNLP we are 200 people who could be in a position to join the health system and the workforce of this pandemic. This situation is the same that occurs in all faculties of the country. That is to say that during all of 2020 no doctor will be received. That is why we want the relevant authorities to generate exceptional measures for this exceptional moment. And that we can be the professionals that we dream of and that people need. “

“There is not much more to add,” he said. Lorden, “Only if we extend this reality to other careers, the professionals we could count on would join the fight to contain the pandemic”.

Coronavirus: Study measured underestimation of covid-19 cases and low mortality in the pandemic – Health


A study by Colombian researchers published in the magazine International Journal of Infectious Diseases analyzed the management of the pandemic in the country based on the incidence of cases and deaths compared to others in the region.

The research was prepared by Fernando de la Hoz Restrepo (from the Department of Public Health of the National University), Nelson Alvis Zakzuk (from the Department of Economic Sciences of the Universidad de la Costa), Juan Fernando de la Hoz Gómez (from the Department of Evaluation of Health Technologies of the ALZAK Foundation), Alejandro de la Hoz Gómez (of the interdepartmental program of bioinformatics of the University of California), Luz Gómez del Corral (of the research group in infectious diseases of the San Ignacio University Hospital) and Nelson Alvis Guzmán ( of the Department of Economic Sciences of the University of Cartagena).

It was named ‘Is Colombia an example of successful containment of the covid-19 pandemic? A critical analysis of epidemiological data from March to July 2020.

(You can also read: Debts to hospitals and clinics exceed $ 40 billion: Attorney General).

The experts constructed the analysis based on the incidence and mortality rates shown by covid-19 by age, sex, and geographic areas in Colombia between March and July 25.

By then 240,745 cases and 8,269 deaths had been reported, with a fatality rate of 3.4 percent. And 1,370,271 samples had been analyzed, equivalent to 27,405 per million inhabitants and a positivity rate of 17.5 percent.

It is worth saying that until Tuesday, less than a month after the analysis ended, the number of confirmed cases was 489,122; deaths, 15,619, and the fatality rate, 3.19 percent. In addition, 2,246,595 samples have been analyzed, equivalent to 44,600 per million inhabitants and a positivity rate of 21.77 percent.

(Read also: Excess mortality in Colombia during the pandemic revealed)

With the studied figures, the researchers confirmed that Colombia has a lower incidence of cases and mortality compared to other countries region of.

And likewise, after approximately 140 days of transmission, the numbers of cases and deaths are “extremely” below the projections of the National Institute of Health (INS). “The INS mathematical model estimated that 21,237,000 cases and 212,000 deaths could occur in the first 100 days of the epidemic without interventions. However, only 0.3 percent of cases and 0.7 percent of predicted deaths were reported after those first 100 days.”, Indicates the analysis.

They say this can be an effect of the general quarantine and other measures taken by the Government (strict early closure, mandatory confinement for those over 70 years of age, closing of schools and universities, suspension of almost all face-to-face work activities and of national and international land and air travel), conditions that were contrasted at the time by the decisions taken in other countries such as Brazil and Mexico.

Also, mention that factors such as the climate and the demographic profile could have influenced the low mortality rates. This is because although transmission peaks and deaths caused by respiratory viruses mainly occur during the rainy seasons, since October 2019 the country has experienced an unusually long dry season. That adds to the majority young population that may have attenuated Sars-Cov-2 mortality.

(You may be interested in: Ten signs of the body that require medical consultation)

But they also blame the low mortality, to some extent, to geographic differences in surveillance capacity. For example, “indigenous populations with little sanitary infrastructure have been the most affected,” say the experts.

The authors show the gaps in the sampling rates that the regions have when they are compared per million inhabitants, because while one department has 2,664 another shows 158,681. “Consequently, the incidence and mortality rate also varies,” they point out.

But the study also evaluated the potential for underestimation of cases detected in the country, which “Due to geographic variations in surveillance capacity it can reach up to 82 percent”, they mention.

Or in other words from the same document, “for July 25, Colombia should have detected 1,328,175 cases instead of the real 240,795 observed, an underestimation of 82 percent ”.

To measure the underestimation of cases, the authors identified the departments with the highest rates of samples processed per million inhabitants and projected them on other regions taking into account the positivity shown.

The researchers clearly point out that “These deficiencies in notification and surveillance can also help to hide the real number of cases and deaths in Colombia.”

(We recommend: This is the reality of the pandemic in Colombia)

In any case, the article points out the difficulties that the country had due to the shortage of laboratory supplies to carry out PCR tests. And it states verbatim that If all the departments had had the sampling capacity that the Amazon had, “the number of cases would have multiplied by eight.”

This is evident because when reviewing the proportion of COVID-19 positives for each imported case, “it is suggested that some departments were unable to track the majority of imported cases.”

The article ends by saying that although the first imported case was detected in early March, “It is very likely that the transmission began in February or even at the end of January.”

Proof of this are the cases detected in March in various regions and with no known links to imported positives. “One of the first cases, in fact, reported symptoms on February 29, several days before the first imported case was detected.”

This analysis takes the data that, although they show that the collapse of the health system did not occur in Colombia and that there is a low mortality rate, which has remained, the scale of the pandemic is not yet known, Fernando de la Hoz, former director of the National Institute of Health and director of the public health department of the National University and one of the main authors, told EL TIEMPO.

The article – adds the researcher – adjusts the numbers reported by the National Institute of Health and the Ministry to the diagnostic capacity that the country has.

Mikhail Mishustin explored the roots of accelerated economic growth

At the end of his working trip to the Far East, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin held on Tuesday, August 18, a meeting of the commission for the development of the macroregion in Blagoveshchensk, where he studied the results of an experiment on its accelerated development – many of the initiatives used there can be used by the government when working on national projects. The prime minister thanked the regional leaders for the economic breakthrough (the growth of industrial production in the Far East is 2.5 times ahead of the all-Russian one) and focused on solving the most problematic issues of the social sphere, which is somewhat lagging behind the economy.

Mikhail Mishustin ended his Far Eastern trip on Tuesday in Blagoveshchensk with a series of meetings and a meeting of the commission on the socio-economic development of the Far East. Before him, the head of government managed to meet with participants in the Far Eastern Hectare and Far Eastern Mortgage programs, Governor of the Amur Region Vasily Orlov and Acting Heads of the Jewish Autonomous Region Rostislav Goldstein and Khabarovsk Krai Mikhail Degtyarev. The press service of the White House informed about the last meeting sparingly: they discussed “issues of budgetary provision, energy and equalization of tariffs, infrastructure projects, as well as social protection of the population”, the political situation in Khabarovsk, where the population has been actively protesting against the arrest of the former governor Sergei Furgal for more than a month, was not mentioned in the message.

At the meeting of the commission for the development of the Far East, the main Far Eastern official could not appear – the president’s plenipotentiary in the Far Eastern Federal District and Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Trutnev, who fell ill with COVID-19. The meeting of the commission was opened by Mikhail Mishustin himself, with a statement that the government was finalizing the program for the socio-economic development of the Far East until 2035 and would approve it in the near future. The White House will soon have to bring the entire pool of national projects in line with reality – and the prime minister’s interest in the results of innovations implemented in the Far Eastern Federal District is understandable.

According to him, “the first result of the new state policy in the Far East was the growth of industrial production, which is more than two and a half times ahead of the national average,” and the investment climate has also revived.

Over the past five years, almost 2.5 thousand investment projects have been launched with a total investment of more than 4 trillion rubles, “more than 180 thousand jobs have been created,” said Mr. Mishustin, thanking the heads of the regions for this.

The main report on the results of Far Eastern development since 2013 was presented by the head of the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East, Alexander Kozlov. He also noted “non-standard solutions” that ensured the growth of the share of foreign direct investment in the macroregion to 26% and the cumulative growth of industrial production over five years by 32%. Separately, the minister noted federal support for the creation of energy facilities, railway infrastructure, gas pipelines and roads. “Investors are investing in the construction of an enterprise, creating jobs, and we, as a state, give subsidies for the construction of expensive infrastructure, which they themselves sometimes cannot afford. The amount of subsidies does not exceed the estimated cost of the object, and the investment project’s multiplier should be 1 to 10, ”the minister noted, adding that such support has already been received by 14 companies that have invested 265 billion rubles in projects. with government investments in infrastructure of 26 billion rubles.

However, the minister stated that demand is growing, but “the state program will not be able to cover everyone.”

The Ministry of the East proposed a separate law to introduce tax deductions for the creation of external infrastructure, but the Ministry of Finance opposed the creation of “new entities”, proposing to include such deductions in agreements on the protection and encouragement of capital investments (SZPK, the so-called investment code). “We are in the working version now, we will report to you how we will agree on this project and this document,” the head of the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East promised.

Calling the economy “a wallet for the construction of hospitals, schools, roads,” the minister admitted that “this is not very good in the Far East, of course,” but the authorities started social development when money appeared: “First of all, we build in municipalities where new productions come ”. In two years, 363 social facilities were built in the Far East, 243 were repaired. The Far Eastern Mortgage program has already allowed 9 thousand people to buy housing since December 2019, the minister reported, but there are 47 thousand people in total, and the primary market can only offer 15 thousand . apartments.

«Housing will not be enough if emergency measures are not taken right now and construction is started, ”he said, promising to convey to the Ministry of Construction proposals on additional stimulation of construction.

In the meantime, the “interim” decision had to be made by the prime minister: at a meeting with program participants, he promised to extend the program to the “secondary housing” in the Magadan region and Chukotka, where there are no new houses at all, for two years. Mikhail Mishustin also supported the possibility of expanding the plots in the Far Eastern Hectare program (for those who successfully develop them) and lower the thresholds for access to farm grants.

The tongue will indicate a lack of vitamin B12 in the body.


USA,

Aug 19, 2020
/LIVE24/.

Due to the deficiency of vitamin B12 in the human body, psychological and physical problems can arise: disruptions in the formation of blood cells, DNA synthesis, the functioning of the brain and nervous system.

A “fleshy red” tongue with a smooth surface will tell you about the lack of this substance. In addition, other signs of vitamin B12 deficiency are constipation, flatulence, vomiting, nausea, and heartburn.

Genetic defects and poor nutrition can also provoke health problems due to a lack of a substance.

We remind that earlier there was named a way to cut coronavirus deaths in half. Scientists have re-discovered the link between infection and vitamin D deficiency.
