The Rzhev Memorial was created by sculptor Andrei Korobtsov and architect Konstantin Fomin. The initiators of the erection of the monument were veterans of the Great Patriotic War. The sculptural structure in honor of the fallen in the Battle of Rzhev is a 25-meter bronze figure of a Soviet soldier. The monument was erected on a ten-meter bulk mound.

In May, the Russian Military Historical Society reported that the monument was ready for opening in April, but because of the coronavirus epidemic, the ceremony had to be postponed until June. In particular, the possibility of opening the Rzhev Monument on June 22, the anniversary of the start of World War II, was considered.


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.

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.

“Before, her name was Inna, she is engaged in tourism, very good”

The 66-year-old Rock Guru Andrei Makarevich got married in December, but did it so secretly that secular reporters did not even hear about it. And in a conversation with his friend, a journalist, “KP»By Alexander Gamow Andrei Vadimovich admitted: he supposedly self-insulated in Moscowand the young beautiful wife stayed in Israel – I did not have time on the last plane until the cancellation of all flights due to the coronavirus. He didn’t share the details, he only said that her name was Einat.

Israel is a small country. “Of course I know Einat. Makarevich’s wife, seriously ?! Here is a quiet woman! ” – the first journalist reacted, to whom we got through.

So, once Einat was Inna, lived in Of Russia. After repatriation she changed her name, now she is known as Einat Klein. She worked in journalism, then went on tourism, traveled the whole world, especially loves Ethiopia. When the pandemic broke out and tourism collapsed, Einat took up wine tasting online: she is the co-founder of Vino & Co.

Even close friends did not know about the wedding with Makarevich. On Instagram Einat – not a hint. Well, except for one thing: in the photo is a computer monitor, in the frame is Makarevich in a bow tie and a guitar. Yes, it’s a video chat!

In general, I’m even starting to like

“A man is a creature that adapts to everything in the world, especially if this“ everything in the world ”includes unlimited sleep and sparkling. Who would have thought half a year ago that I would spend my evenings this way, however, on the other hand, who would have thought that they would be so amazing! In general, I’m even starting to like it, ”Einat wrote.

She lives in Beit Arya, an Israeli settlement on the West Bank Jordan.

After all, how was it? Every Sunday I woke up in the morning, crawled out into the kitchen, we had breakfast with my family, and then crawled into the living room closer to the TV

Before marriage with Einat Klein, Andrei Makarevich was married three times. The last marriage lasted 7 years – the musician divorced in 2010. He has three children. And, apparently, there will be more.

Advice and love, as they say!

for phase 2 Atac needs means. And there are no flow controllers on the metro

How to increase the bus fleet in the city and ensure everyone gets on public transport, since the Atac ones in service will be no more than 50% if not 25% full. Then, another knot to untie, how to check the distance on the cars and by metro: the helpful staff cannot be enough. Here they are, the two key points on which the Region and the Municipality work in these hours, at the table that will fix phase 2 of Roman transport.

Let’s start from the second: Atac does not have enough controllers to check the flows of passengers entering and leaving the vehicles, especially on the subway. The municipal technicians pointed this out. The quota in meters must take place before the turnstiles and 4, 5 people would be needed in stations with low user flows and up to 12, 15 in the main stations, especially if they are exchange points. There are no staff. “The company said it could make additional fleet auditors and auxiliaries available – the commissioner for transport Mauro Alessandri explained in the regional commission – once there is clarity on the economic aspects “. Extraordinary funds will be needed.

Not to mention the surface means. The commissioner on the point was clear: “It will not be possible to identify personnel to be put into service to check the mandatory use of dpi by users and respect for social distancing. It would not have been even if we had known six months ago”. The reasons are mainly regulatory and contractual. “We will clarify these aspects by May 4th” assures Alessandri.

Having said that, even if the spacing worked perfectly above the cars, the problem is what remains at the stops. Net of a flow that between smart working and staggered openings will certainly be less than the ordinary, filling buses at 25%, as the Capitol would like, or even 50 as suggested in the Region, would mean that or another 50% if not 75, stay with the canopies. With the risk of having to manage other gatherings, not above the vehicles but on the sidewalk.

Here then it is essential to untie the second node: increase the available fleet, at least on the busiest lines. We will fish from the tourist bus sector, those that normally carry visitors around the city monuments and that today remain empty. They are the same insiders to have offered, also to find economic relief. “We are thinking about how to exploit the proposal” explained the Regional Councilor for Transport Mauro Alessandri, speaking in the competent regional commission. Some lines that need it most will be strengthened. According to the data provided by the Region, the lines will be strengthened by calibrating the service on approximately 1300 cars, slightly less than the 1500 in ordinary service. 88% of the total.

However, the Capitol is thinking of the details, with a series of hot issues on the table to be put in a system always with a view to reducing the queues of people who risk waiting forever for a bus or tram at the stops: the staggered openings for shops and commercial activities, the maintenance of smart working as much as possible, mobility sharing and cycle paths.

A 9-year-old girl playing next to the installation of a new power line in the city of Tangerang (Indonesia) ended up hanging 15 meters high and desperately asking for help.

The episode was recorded when the little girl took a cable and was blown up by the operators who installed it and who did not record that the little girl was digging the place.

The minor was hung 15 meters high and began to call for help desperately and before the astonished gaze of the workers who did not understand what was happening.

They were finally able to rescue her and the story, which could have ended in tragedy, had a happy ending.


the doctor said why there are few coronavirus cases in Samara

The number of patients with coronavirus in the Samara region since the beginning of April has grown by three people. It’s really a bit, but the situation around is more like preparing for combat action. New infectious beds are constantly being prepared in the region, doctors are being trained, hospitals are being re-equipped. Residents perplexed: “More patients? They don’t tell any information? ” In fact, there is no need to look for a dirty trick: citizens are honestly told about how the situation is developing. But what comes next is difficult to predict. Associate Professor of the Department of Infectious Diseases of Samara State Medical University, Chief Specialist of the Ministry of Health of the Samara Region on the Problems of Diagnosis and Treatment of HIV Infection, Infectious Disease Doctor with 30 Years of Experience Elena Strebkova now helps to organize an infectious diseases hospital at the hospital named after Midpoint “There are no patients here, but who knows if they will appear tomorrow.” She told in an exclusive interview to a journalist “KPSamara”, Why the whole branch of medicine is working so hard today, although the numbers of cases and the inhabitants seem low, are Samara residents at risk of picking up a coronavirus and why is COVID-19 more dangerous than“ ordinary flu ”.

– Elena Alekseevna, why is such mass training, reprofiling of hospitals necessary?

– The measures taken by the government of the country and the region, and now allow us to prevent a surge in incidence. If not for them, we would be faced with a situation that is now happening around the world. Thanks to the measures taken for isolation and sanitation, a large number of cases of infection do not appear. This is done so that all our medical organizations have time to prepare. We see that new cases of infection and new cases appear daily, and we must be prepared to provide highly qualified medical assistance to the residents of the region. Like all my colleagues, we will be happy if we do not have to. But we must be prepared.

– How are hospitals preparing to receive coronavirus patients, what is the peculiarity of interacting with such patients?

– Infectious diseases that we usually deal with in the Samara Region are caused by microorganisms that do not require special preparation from a doctor. And COVID-19 is a particularly dangerous infection. Therefore, all protective measures in hospitals converted to infectious hospitals, for example, in SOKB named after V.D. Seredavina, taken for this class of pathogenicity. For this, doctors put on protective suits, masks, goggles – a person must be fully protected, because even small aerosol drops that remain in the air after coughing or sneezing can get on it and then lead to infection.

– How are doctors trained to resist the coronavirus?

– Doctors at hospitals that are converting to infectious hospitals are currently undergoing training. First of all, they are taught to wear and take off protective clothing correctly. Because the physician must first protect himself from infection, otherwise there will be no one to help people.

In addition, doctors are told how the virus is transmitted and how to protect themselves; they explain all the rules for disinfection. Of course, we study the clinical forms of the disease, how it manifests itself, what supporting signs of coronavirus infection, what indicators you need to pay attention to in order to make a diagnosis and assess the severity of the patient.

Why is it important now to stay at home.Why is it important to stay at home during coronavirus? That’s what the doctors say about it

– And as for lung ventilation, for example? Is she taught to do it?

– Naturally, such a huge number of resuscitators, infectious disease specialists, pulmonologists, which may be needed in case of a surge in incidence, is not in the healthcare system. Therefore, if necessary, infectious disease specialists and pulmonologists will work as consultants. One infectious disease specialist and pulmonologist per 100 patients – this will be quite hard work.

Under their guidance, doctors of all other specialties, after training, will be able to work with such patients. But the main burden will fall on resuscitators. Here, one resuscitator with two nurses will work for six people. Although basic training in mechanical ventilation and resuscitation will still pass all the doctors. For example, the staff of Seredavin Hospital is almost completing such training.

– How large, in your opinion, is an infectious disease specialist with 30 years of experience in the likelihood of a scenario when 100 coronavirus patients fall on one pulmonologist?

– We all want to hope that this probability is low, but we should always be prepared for this. It’s impossible to deploy an infectious diseases hospital in a hospital that was not intended for this; deploying such a huge number of resuscitation beds is impossible. The preparations that are currently underway will allow us to avoid the so-called “Italian scenario” – the very help that is needed will be immediately provided to the patients. IN Italy such a difficult situation was due to the large number of patients at the same time. Quarantine was announced late in the country; the healthcare system was not ready for such an arrival of patients who need ventilation support. In our country, the health system managed to prepare.

– Explain why we have so few patients and how relevant is self-isolation in this situation?

– These are the rules for the development of the epidemic. Why in Moscow so many sick? Not only because there are more people. But also because people from different countries flocked there and only then were distributed among the regions. Therefore, a huge number of sources of infection fell precisely in the capital. Naturally, there is the largest percentage of cases. But people from Moscow came here, and now the virus is spreading here. And now it doesn’t have to be contact with a person who came from abroad. This may be contact with a person who has not left the territory of the Samara region, who himself does not suspect that he is a source of infection.

The virus already exists in the urban environment, and it was for this reason that self-isolation measures were taken to protect people from each other. The closer we are to each other, the greater the likelihood of becoming infected, and the biggest danger is that this will happen at the same time, giving a greater burden on the health system.

“How can the virus spread if we all sit at home?”

– Let’s really look at things. You are not sitting at home. Anyway, you go to the store, to the pharmacy, where to whatever. The main distribution path is through door handles, through the buttons of elevators, in contact with trolleys in stores. These are transmission routes that no one has canceled. And with close contact at a distance of less than two meters, infection from person to person is also possible.

– They say that coronavirus is less dangerous than ordinary flu, it has less mortality, there is no reason for panic?

Coronavirus prevention: 10 tips by Gennady Onishchenko.“The epidemic will end soon and we will return to a happy life,” Gennady Onishchenko reassures. And for the prevention of coronavirus, he gives the Russians 10 simple tips

– Mortality from influenza was also quite high until the moment of mass vaccination. Now vaccination saves us from a large number of deaths with the flu. And we expect the appearance of a coronavirus vaccine only by the end of the year. Therefore, people are not protected. And since the virus is new, it first appeared this year, we have no immunity. And since no one has immunity, there is no layer that would restrain the explosive nature of the epidemic. Explosive is when several thousand cases appear at one moment. According to some experts, the main surge in the incidence may occur next week. The medical system must be prepared for this.

– In social networks, KP-Samara asked readers why, in their opinion, in the Samara region such a low incidence of coronavirus. It turned out that most are sure: we just have little testing for coronavirus. How do you rate coronavirus testing in the region? Are they enough?

– We test as much as necessary, except Rospotrebnadzor A laboratory has been deployed at the AIDS Center. They test those who came from abroad and are in quarantine, all patients with pneumonia, with severe forms of acute respiratory infections, pregnant women – volumes are large.

“And the main question that worries everyone is when will it all end?”

– So far, the measures taken are designed for the next three months. But we will all be happy if everything ends earlier.

Congressmen demand that Education clarify food distribution

A group of Democratic congressmen today demanded Education deparment to specify how it will distribute food to children in the public system in the midst of the coronavirus emergency.

The legislators — by means of a letter sent to the secretary of the agency, Eligio Hernández– requested that they detail how the Department will ensure that the selected non-profit organizations fulfill their responsibility to deliver food from school canteens to children in the public system.

The letter was signed by Puerto Rican congressmen Nydia Velázquez, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Darren Soto, the representative Raúl Grijalva and the congresswoman Caroline Maloney.

In a statement through his official Twitter profile, Velázquez warned that Puerto Rico has the highest rate of child poverty in the entire United States at 58%.

“Although the island has been on curfew for almost a month, the children have not been receiving school meals,” said the New York congresswoman.

The congressmen also asked the secretary when the food distribution begins and what criteria they will use to select the non-profit organizations. On Wednesday, Hernández indicated that —despite requests from the Fiscal Control Board— he will not open the school cafeterias to serve students in the public system. Instead, he argued that the food will be delivered to nonprofit organizations.

“The concern of the Fiscal Oversight Board is essentially aimed at making food available for children in our educational system. The Department of Education made the inquiry to Food Nutrition Services to complete the donation of food that is subsidized with federal funds and they authorized that they can be donated to the Food Bank of Puerto Rico and at Salvation Army, action that we complete “, explained the head of Education in an interview with Meter.

Congressmen also noted that Congress passed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, which essentially authorizes school canteens – with due precautions – to provide food to their students in the midst of the coronavirus emergency, also known as the Covid-19 .

In addition, Democratic lawmakers asked Hernandez to detail the steps they will take to serve special education students and whether food delivery could include parents. They argued that parents of those students in need have also been provided with food in the cities of New York and Los Angeles.

Congressmen gave the agency 48 hours to respond.

Education reacts

According to a written statement sent by the agency’s press staff, the Department is currently preparing a response to the group of legislators.

“At the moment, the School Food Authority and the State Agency for Food and Nutrition Services, both attached to the DE, continue donating products to other entities that offer services to those in need. Already Education donated 110 thousand pounds of products to the Bank of Food and Salvation Army and will continue donating those foods that have a useful date, “reads the written statement.


Are the two meters of distance enough to avoid contagion?




Guidelines to stop the explosive expansion of the new coronavirus are clear: to avoid getting the virus SARS-CoV-2 direct contact should be avoided as much as possible. Therefore, in many establishments that are still open to the public on the ground there are marks with a safety distance of close to two meters. But, Why two meters and not another number? Should it be applied everywhere, even indoors? And, above all, is it really effective in ending the pandemic of Covid-19?

According to the most accepted theories, the virus spreads very quickly thanks to coughs and sneezes, and can remain in the air for three hours before falling to the ground. It is also able to spread through contaminated surfaces. Those two meters away are supposed to be designed to protect us in the first two cases cited. However, there are experts, such as Krys johnson, an epidemiologist at Temple University, who says that this measure “should be taken as a reference point, not as a line behind which one is absolutely protected,” he says for Live Science. And there are scientists who even think that this distance is still too short.

More than three meters

“This measurement is perfect for outdoor settings, but should be viewed as a minimum indoors,” Johnson says, referring to food establishments, for example. «Two meters away is the average that run through respiratory droplets from a sneeze or cough before they settle and are no longer likely to be inhaled by other people. I have seen estimates of social distancing of up to 10 feet – over three meters – if someone sneezes hard enough or doesn’t cover your mouth when you cough“, it states. “This allows those particles to settle a little further.”

Adequate social distancing, Johnson says, means not only keeping the minimum distance, but thinking about how that separation affects the rest. That is, you do not infect yourself, but you cannot infect others either In the event that you are a carrier of the virus and do not know it – in the early stages there are no symptoms and there are even people who have not noticed having passed the disease. “You should try to keep this distance even when you pass someone on the sidewalk (…) My recommendation is that people Maintain this separation in any case as long as they are not inside their houses– Give people ample space in stores or pharmacies; note how close you are to the next customer in the queue; make purchases as quickly as possible, so that the rest can also do it in the safest way possible ».

Chatting in the distance

When asked about whether it is correct interact with other people in outdoor settingsLike parks, Johnson says, “You should be fine as long as you speak two meters away and when neither party has symptoms.” “At this distance the saliva that can be escaped settles before reaching the other person (…) But personally I would just sit and talk for a long period of time only if we were outdoors“Says the scientist to Live Science.

“Although whenever someone shows symptoms, they should be isolated at home (regardless of the disease) and keep a distance of three meters from anyone, “he says.


But where does the measurement of two meters come from? The case of massive infection in a choir class in Washington, in which after the meeting, 45 members got coronavirus even without physical contact and keeping distance stipulated safety, may cast doubt on its effectiveness. No one showed symptoms, but most of them were infected and there are even two dead. This is why many argue that SARS-CoV-2-loaded exudate particles can travel farther than two meters or remain active longer before drying. In fact, large droplets expelled with extreme force (coughing or sneezing without being contained) can be transported by air more than three meters away.

«Six feet – two meters – is probably not a safe enough measure», Also states for the same header Raina MacIntyre, professor of global security and director of the Biosecurity Program at the Kirby Institute in Australia. “The 3-6 foot rule is based on some studies from the 1930s and 1940s, and since then they have been proven wrong: the drops can travel more than 6 feet. However, experts in hospital infection control continue to believe this rule. It’s like the Flat Earth theory: anyone to anyone who tries to discuss the real evidence is yelled at by a chorus of believers. ”

So if the two meter rule is not fully effective, what is the solution? Stay the maximum time inside the house. And, in the event you do have to go out, masks and frequent hand washing and disinfection can reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection. And do not think that because there are few people in your confinement area, you are less at risk, since the coronavirus is reaching all corners of the planet.


Two cases positive output! At the entrances of Kastamonu, checks started with a thermometer

Measures continue against the corona virus, which is spread all over the world from Wuhan city of China and also seen in our country.
