Open letter from the UBA Faculty of Medicine regarding Covid-19: The situation will continue to worsen day by day


Today, we pass through Argentina, the most difficult moment of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, measured both in terms of new infections as well as the increasing number of people who die every day. If additional measures are not implemented, this situation will continue to worsen day by day. In this context, the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Buenos Aires together with the signatory Medical and Scientific Societies, concerned about Public Health, communicate our position to the different government bodies, to our colleagues and to society as a whole.

Social distancing continues to represent the fundamental measure in the fight against the pandemic. We observe with great concern a relaxation in the fulfillment of the rules of distancing, which does not respect geographical limits or political districts. We make an energetic appeal in this regard that includes both governments and each and every citizen. We are talking about thousands and thousands of deaths that can be avoided.

Search devices for infected people with and without symptoms (but still contagious) and close contacts should be put into operation more quickly. To this end, you must dramatically expand our diagnostic capacity, implementing a more aggressive and active logic. What we have done so far in this area is clearly insufficient. Although to this day, mortality is lower than in many countries, our number of infected and deceased continues to increase.

The health personnel have made and continue to make an extraordinary effort. Day by day they put their health at stake, and that of their loved ones. It is essential to acknowledge their work and pay our warm tribute to them. We urge the authorities to urgently request strengthen the health system, by incorporating suitable personnel and adequate equipment, and recognizing those who have long been ignored and devalued. We ask society and governments to help us take care of and take care of us.

We are exhausted from working in this context and under these working conditions. The pandemic affects us all, the fear of getting sick and dying is present in society, and the fatigue due to distance and confinement is increasing. Doctors, nurses, kinesiologists, and other health workers are also stressed and exhausted from working continuously and without rest, for 160 days, in a system that does not recognize us, that does not take care of us, or provides the necessary protection elements for our work. We too get sick, we die. No one should be without work, but what is certain, no one should lose their life to work, and this is happening to us.

We are very concerned about the increase in community circulation, the lack or misuse of chinstraps and masks, the fact that distancing measures are not respected, social gatherings without care, because this leads directly to an increase in infections, disabilities and deaths. It is necessary to increase our awareness of risk, as individuals and as a society. We all want to believe that the worst is over, but it is not, and it will not happen as in stories or dreams, that things happen just by wishing them. The increases in cases in the interior of the country and “plateaus with high numbers” in some cities, only herald new cases of disease, and not even societies with very advanced health systems, were able to sustain the risk of illness, without having to suffer a huge number of victims. It is not possible that the need for the freedom to have a coffee, expose us to more loss of life. We need society to make these situations of “lack of individual and community care” visible as problematic. For now, the best remedy we found was distancing, and protective measures, and in the meantime, we will also continue investigating vaccines, plasma, serums or some medicine.

Now is when, responsibly and as an adult society, we must assume the responsibilities that correspond to us, as a community, as individuals and as governments, and take charge of health care and life for ourselves and our people

Elizabeth II wins her open war against a former butler: David, defeated by Goliath

Isabel II I had been upset for a long time and did not want to give in to the attitude of a former butler who worked for Prince Charles between 2005 and 2011. Grant Harrold, 42, no longer collaborates with the royal family. After leaving the Palace team, she began a new life that has given the Queen many headaches.

[LEA MÁS: La culpa de Harry y la obstinación de Meghan: un nuevo libro revela nuevos datos]

As reported by ‘Daily Mail’, Harrold continued to define himself as a “royal butler” and once his duties with Isabel II were completed, he opened a “Royal School of Butlers” and a “Royal School of etiquette” to share his knowledge.

But if something has become clear to us after the Megxit, it is that the Queen does not like anyone to use a royal title or position when you are already out of the institution. He prohibited Meghan and Harry and Harrold was not going to be less.

One of the Queen’s ex-butler’s friends revealed that tensions were high between the two parties: “It is a real battle between David and Goliath. Why the hell couldn’t he call himself a “royal butler” if this is what he was? What will the Palace do? Ban it? “, he wondered.

The prohibition of the Sussexes from using the royal title for commercial purposes seems to have created a precedent that must now be extended to all persons linked, in some way, to the Royal Household. “We cannot ask the duke of sussex don’t use the term ‘real’ and then allow let a former staff member do it, “said a source close to the Crown.

According to the Queen’s lawyers, Harrold was cheating on his students because calling himself that way, it seemed like he was still a ‘royal butler’ today.

Now, as reported by ‘The Times’, the queen has had her way. Harrold has lost in court and will have to pay £ 2,500 in court costs.


The High Council of Justice opens an investigation into the judicial treatment of the Chovanec case

This is the first time that the Superior Council of Justice has carried out a specific investigation into a judicial file which has not yet been closed.

Lhe Superior Council of Justice (CSJ) decided this Thursday afternoon that it will investigate to analyze whether or not the judiciary has committed errors in the Chovanec case. The body that works for a better functioning of the judiciary will investigate the way in which the judiciary handled the case, without any say in the content of the investigations into the death of the Slovak entrepreneur in February 2018.

“An investigation team, led by a magistrate member, will examine in particular how the judicial file was precisely opened, the progress of the file, to what extent the control mechanisms intervened and the communication between the judicial and police authorities”, details the CSJ.

A body which recalls that its investigations “relate to possible structural dysfunctions, and not to individual responsibilities”.

This decision is interesting for two reasons: first, “This is the first time that the Superior Council of Justice has carried out a specific investigation into a judicial file which is not yet closed”, he recalls. Secondly,, this decision comes the day after a communication from the public prosecutor’s office defending the investigation opened since February 2018.

The general prosecutor defends the investigation

Indeed, Wednesday, the general prosecutor’s office of Mons-Charleroi had explained that, according to him, the investigation was carried out with speed and it would be the civil party – with requests for additional duties – who would have extended the time of the investigation . In addition, Attorney General Ignacio De La Serna blamed the police for not using the CCTV footage to possibly open a disciplinary case.

The lawyer for the widow of Jozef Chovanec reacted sharply to this judicial communication: “It’s amazing, the madness of the day. But we have not yet finished and we want the investigation to be conducted elsewhere, ”said Me Ann Van De Steen.

After more than 10 days of pre-analysis of the Chovanec case, the CSJ therefore considered that there was material to dissect the judicial aspect of the case. An investigation in addition to those of justice (on the merits), the internal police investigation, the investigation of the Standing Committee P, the parliamentary investigation …

“A guy approached me saying he wanted to destroy me”, the police open an investigation

The local police of Mechelen-Willebroek opened an investigation on Sunday evening after threats made against Marc Van Ranst at the station in Mechelen. The virologist photographed his attacker as he gave the Hitler salute and posted the photo on Twitter.

On Sunday evening, Marc Van Ranst was at Mechelen station when a man made threats against him. The virologist posted two photographs of the individual on Twitter. “At the Mechelen station, a guy approached me because he was going to ‘destroy me because I’m a left-wing rat’. He gave the Hitler salute. Poor man, ”writes Mr. Van Ranst on the social network.

Mechelen police have opened an investigation after seeing the virologist’s message. “We asked for the images of the surveillance cameras of the city in the district of the station as well as those of our colleagues of the railway police”, specified the spokesperson of the local police force. “We have not yet had contact with Mr. Van Ranst, he has not yet filed a complaint and it is not necessary for this kind of facts. We will contact him later to obtain his version of the facts. “

The Antwerp public prosecutor’s office has been informed, a necessity when images from surveillance cameras are requested and kept during an investigation. “This kind of behavior is disgusting and we should never accept it!” “, Condemned, on Twitter, the mayor of Mechelen, Alexander Vandersmissen.

It must be said that with his strong opinions on the coronavirus and the management of the epidemic, Marc Van Ranst divides. The man had previously been placed under police surveillance because of the many threats he received on social networks.


Open the account and find a surprise income of 2,080 million | Companies

Opening the bank account and finding an unexpected income is a reason for joy, but if the amount rises to 2.45 billion dollars (2.076 million euros), the surprise turns to disbelief.

This is what has happened to a Bank of America customer, who a few days ago found an income from the entity of this amount. According to Bloomberg, the user, from Massachusetts (EE UU), initially thought that the bank would realize the error, but it was not, so he decided to contact his manager to find out where this gigantic amount of money came from that appeared so much in the statements of his account on the bank’s website as in the mobile application.

The bank has already fixed the error and ensures that in reality, these more than 2,000 million were never in the customer’s account. “It was a display error and nothing more,” company spokesman Bill Haldin told Bloomberg. However, it is not the first time that Bank of America has faced a failure of this type: at the beginning of the month, the entity had certain display problems that caused customer inquiries made on the web or in the mobile app will show incorrect balances. Although then, the errors were not in their benefit, since their accounts showed that there was not a single dollar left in them.

In both cases, the bugs were easily fixed, unlike the legal battle facing Citigroup after also making an accidental transfer a few days ago, in this case to a group of investment funds. The bank, administrative agent of the cosmetics firm Revlon, transferred 900 million dollars (750 million euros) due to an “operational error” to the accounts of the creditors of the firm, in a bitter battle between them and the company over debt restructuring.

Although some of the funds have already returned the money they received, others like Brigade refuse and argue that the operation corresponds to the repayment of the loan. However, the bank indicates that it only wanted to pay the interest but transferred amounts 100 times greater.

All this has led to a legal battle and contacts with supervisors. The bank has begun to inform the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and the Federal Reserve about how he could have made such a mistake, according to people familiar with the matter. Likewise, Citigruip filed a lawsuit on Monday against Brigade Capital Management, in which, however, it does not explain the reason for the error made.
