There is a Corona Virus in Imported Squid Packaging, China Asking Citizens to Buy Covid-19 Test – Authorities in China’s Jilin Province found the coronavirus on imported squid packaging, urging anyone who has purchased the product to get tested for COVID-19, health authorities in Fuyu City said Sunday.

One of the packages arrived in the city via the provincial capital Changchun, the Fuyu city health office said on its WeChat account on Sunday, as quoted by Antara, Monday (21/9).

His party requested that residents who have bought and consumed imported squid at the frozen seafood kiosk of Sanjia Deda for the period of August 24-31 to report to the nearest authorities and carry out a COVID-19 test.

The Changchun COVID-19 prevention office said the squid was imported from Russia through a company in Hunchun City and distributed to the provincial capital.


In the previous to the definition of the new stage, in Province they speak of “plateau” of cases in AMBA

In the prior to the definition of the new stage of preventive isolation, about which the head of the Buenos Aires Government Horacio Rodríguez Larreta and the Buenos Aires governor Axel Kicillof have been talking in the last hours, from the Province they spoke today for the first time of a “settling “of coronavirus cases in the Metropolitan Area (AMBA).

In statements to the press, the Buenos Aires Vice Minister of Health, Nicolás Kreplak, said today that “for the first time there are conditions for the coronavirus cases to begin to decline in the AMBA” and called for a “supportive” attitude from the City of Buenos Aires and from the Buenos Aires districts with the rest of the country, since, as he considered, if the infections in that region decrease “fewer cases would be emitted in the interior.”

“You have to bear in mind that the epidemic cannot be understood only in one district,” Kreplak said, noting that those places in the province that wanted to open more because they did not have many cases “are now having a more uncontrolled outbreak.”

Speaking to Continental radio, the Buenos Aires minister said that “it is necessary to be as supportive and articulate as possible” and specified that “at this moment, for the first time there are conditions for them to begin to decrease (the cases) in the AMBA”, while indicated that “inside it is more complicated.”

“You can work well to reduce it, especially if it goes down in the AMBA,” he insisted.

However, Kreplak warned that the epidemiological situation is “stable, with a little improvement in the AMBA, and with more cases in the interior but it is not totally declined”, so he considered it necessary to wait for “those improvements” to stabilize.

“If we make a big effort, the cases in the AMBA can drop, we are in a position to drop them,” he added.

Kreplak recalled that a few weeks ago the Buenos Aires Minister of Health, Daniel Gollan, said that the cases in the AMBA, which centralizes businesses and the population, were going to spread to the rest of the country, “and this happened since almost all come from the AMBA.”

He also indicated that this situation “generated collapses in the smallest health systems in the interior of the country.”

“If we stopped having cases in the AMBA, we would issue fewer cases in the interior, the number of cases that come out of the AMBA continues to be strong and must be reduced,” he stressed, and asked “to be in solidarity not only with the province of Buenos Aires but also with the whole country. “

Regarding the opening of new activities, Kreplak said that “we all know that the more circulation of people, the more infections there will be, no matter how much there are protocols.”

“What does not make sense is that if we articulate something together, that some try to stress to open more and others less, when we all know what is happening,” he said.

The minister said that despite wanting to convey good news to merchants and people so that they can see family members, “there are openings that could wait a little longer, especially because we understand that it is much better that we stimulate activities related to production and processing. I work than recreational activities “to alleviate the economic crisis.

“I say this not only for the City of Buenos Aires but also for mayors,” he concluded.


Remax case: why you fight against real estate franchises


Marcelo Babenco, vice president of the Real Estate Chamber of the Province of Buenos Aires.

Likewise, it is established that to exercise real estate brokerage, one must be duly authorized and registered in the corresponding registration in the respective College that also creates said law, as occurs in all Argentine provinces that have regulated the activity of the Broker through their laws , delegating to the schools the control of enrollment and disciplinary power, among other provisions and obligations.

It is interesting to note that according to law 14,085, in Chapter III of the prohibitions, art. 53 subsection J says: “It is forbidden to establish companies with people disqualified for professional practice” and in subsection l it says: “It is forbidden to act under another name that does not correspond to the name and surname of the members, except in the cases of companies legally constituted as a whole in accordance with the provisions of National Law 20,266 and its amendments, where it will be recorded in every publication, the name, surname and professional data of at least one of the members of the group in activity ”.

It is clear that real estate brokers can only partner with other real estate brokers and not with a brand, a franchise or a non-registered individual.

Professions are not franchised

After a brief legal explanation that governs our profession, we must add that “Professions are not franchised and cannot be delegated” (auctioneers, real estate brokers, pharmacists, doctors, notaries, biochemists, among others).

Now, going to what is happening today in our province of Buenos Aires and the rest of the country, in practice, all those auctioneers / real estate brokers who are in charge of a “real estate franchise” (whatever it is called), transgress the above mentioned laws (forbidden to associate with someone who is not auctioneer / broker), being liable to disciplinary sanctions through the Disciplinary Court of the departmental / judicial College to which their registration belongs.

The defendant may appeal the measure issued by his Departmental College to the College of Auctioneers and Public Brokers of the province of Buenos Aires, and if in that instance his sanction is ratified, It is left to the denounced the judicial recursive route in Administrative Litigation and follow it up to the Supreme Court in its two instances.

An exemplary ruling

The recent ruling issued by the General Inspection of Jusiticia (IGI) of CABA ordering the dissolution of the firm Remax Argentina S.R.L., also claiming that he will not be able to continue in the country and, consequently, he must begin his judicial process of dissolution and liquidation. The IGJ alleged that Remax Argentina SRL was created by two human persons to have the main franchise of Re / Max International and, from there, sub-franchise it to real estate agents and brokers.

The IGJ understands that the US entity “Indirectly exercises real estate brokerage avoiding local legislation” which imperatively establishes requirements for this activity and benefits through Remax Argentina SRL by participating in the fees of the real estate transactions brokered by the numerous franchisees. The exteriorization of the “Remax” brand by these sub-franchises generates in their favor the false appearance of belonging to an economic group, which will benefit them based on misleading advertising, which in turn benefits the franchisor, allowing them to participate. indirectly from the surgery, which it could not carry out on its own, directly. In addition, it highlights that the human persons, directors of the SRL are not real estate agents, nor is the purpose of Remax Argentina SRL to carry out this activity.

Real estate agents

Another chapter to deal with and which is as delicate as the one mentioned above, is the subject of the so-called “Real estate agents” or sellers of real estate agencies that work under the franchise method.

These “Real estate agents”, managed by registered real estate brokers, who are suspected of covering up with their name and registration the actions of agents who are unregistered people who practice the profession.

Crime framed in the Penal Code in its art. 247, which says: “It will be punished with ………… whoever performs acts of a profession for which a special qualification is required, without possessing a title or the corresponding authorization”, where titles and honors that do not correspond to him are usurpated, on behalf of the real estate broker authorizing the office.

Today we analyze the form of work carried out by these “Real estate agents” and those enrolled that enable them, within the framework of the franchises in general that currently exist.

Thus, it is discovered that in each of the offices of the aforementioned registered brokers, many people called “Real estate agents” who carry out brokerage acts.

Independent, monotributistas

These “agents” are not employees in a dependency relationship with said registered brokers, but act independently, to the point of being registered as monotaxers and issue invoices for their performance.

An important clarification should be made on this issue: all the dependents / employees of the registered real estate brokers are governed by the current labor regime through an employment contract, which determines that the employer is responsible for the performance of the dependent, who you must follow his directives.

The antagonistic and exclusive meaning of the terms “dependence” and “independence” clearly highlights the relevance of what has been said.

That is why it is so significant to bear in mind that the so-called “Agents”, they act independently, protected by the registered, exercising real acts of real estate brokerage in their own office (valuing, signing sales authorizations, advising, participating in the sales ticket and accompanying the parties to the deed, charging fees among other actions,) all these acts are non-delegable functions of the registered broker, whoever fulfills these functions without being (agent), violates art. 247 of the aforementioned CP.

As a conclusion of the data and objective facts reported, it is clarified that the so-called “Agents” They do not have the right to charge fees for the rule of art. 33 of national law 20,266, which says: “those unregistered persons who carry out the brokerage illegally have no right to collect any commission or remuneration.”

It is our responsibility to transmit all this information to the community and to the franchises (who seem not to know them), so that there is no doubt about the legitimate actions carried out by the Professional Associations, being an indisputable maxim, which they have the obligation to comply with. and enforce the law and that this does not mean harassing anyone who respects the rule of law that governs our country.

Vice President Real Estate Chamber Buenos Aires Province


Kicillof: “In this situation, we cannot accompany more openings”

Buenos Aires Governor Axel Kicillof ruled out further openings in the province of Buenos Aires and assured that the stability that the data recently showed in the AMBA area is “tremendously fragile” while the number of infections is growing in the interior.

Accompanied by pro-government and opposition mayors, such as Julio Garro, Vice Governor Verónica Magario and the entire cabinet, the provincial leader led a press conference in which he referred to the epidemiological situation of COVID-19 at the provincial level and in That framework said that in recent days there was a greater circulation of the virus and consequently more infections. That is why he said that “the epidemiological situation in the AMBA is one of tremendously fragile stability” and that “the truth is that the situation is worse.”

“In this situation we cannot follow any more openings,” Kicillof said, marking the line that the Buenos Aires government will follow in the coming days. “What we can do is try to stabilize, we cannot lose what we did in five months in five days and I cannot allow it,” he stated. “The health system did not overflow but it is increasing. It is a mistake to open more and we see it with what is happening not only in Europe, but also in the interior and in our province,” he said about the decision not to open other activities since, as exemplified, “how do I explain it to the doctors who are killing themselves in intensive care while we open more things?”

“The virus does not know about politics, it does not vote, it moves that way,” Kicillof started saying to refer to those he said, “it seems that there were two different countries, in two parallel realities: one that shows a health system that did not overflow but that no longer gives enough and on the other side a portion of society that does not seem to be seeing what is happening. We have to go back to being the same country. We are all tired, anguished, fed up and I understand it and I share it, but the The truth is that what happens is that this virus arrived and it is still beating us because we do not have a vaccine and we have no remedy. That generates uncertainty and it happens all over the planet. The only thing that works is something very old (in reference to quarantine) but it is not a loss of freedom, “he added.

He also emphasized that the epidemiological situation in the interior of Buenos Aires is changing since a greater number of cases are being registered: “Today it is beginning to hit very hard in the interior of the Province and what used to be 5% today is in 11% “, that is why he urged” to value and make clear to those who made the effort that with their behaviors and attitudes they managed to prevent the virus from spreading so much while we managed to expand the health system “and thanked the staff of health “that is breaking the soul” and for “the sensitivity that they put you in an unexpected and dramatic situation, thank you for being there and for taking care of us”.

“It is a crucial moment because we are tired and anguished, but this is the lesser evil, it is not good, it is not excellent but we must not loosen up because this virus escapes and there is no need to give it that possibility,” he expanded and also asked “no do politics with the disease, with something as delicate as what is happening. I was chosen to make decisions and I am not going to do it with surveys. This is health care, it is not what you want but what is convenient for you. Meanwhile you have to continue resisting because there is less to do. “


The Province marks a decrease in the speed of infections

For the first time since the beginning of the pandemic, the decrease in the speed of infections by coronavirus, in the occupation of beds and in the length of stay in intensive care allows to begin to speak of an encouraging diagnosis for Greater La Plata, the Conurbano and the city of Buenos Aires. But now, that “oil stain” with which it is assimilated to the disease is spreading with greater force in the interior, where the percentage of cases doubled in a week and more and more municipalities are forced to tighten restrictions.

“In the metropolitan area, there is a fairly marked decrease in the speed of infections. In the city of Buenos Aires we see a certain amount of infection, but with high levels of contagion. It is a good sign, that we also see in the first and second cordon of the Conurbano ”, the Buenos Aires Minister of Health, Daniel Gollán, summarized yesterday, when he released the weekly epidemiological report of the Province.

“We are managing to flatten the curve,” said the official, and that this is thanks “to the levels of mobility we have today: with limited public transportation, no mass events, or classes,” but “if we all go out on the street, it goes off again ”.

The warning was quickly taken up by the Buenos Aires Chief of Staff, Carlos Bianco, who warned that “we are comfortable in Phase 3” that is in force in the Region, “because beyond the stabilization that exists, it is a stabilization in a high number . We are still concerned ”. From which it can be inferred that the new stage of isolation – which will begin on Monday – would arrive without greater flexibility.

Yesterday, anyway, the Province registered 5,656 new infections (in the city of Buenos Aires there were 1,333). While the occupation of intensive care units (for different pathologies) in the metropolitan area was located at 62.85 percent. “Is coming down. It’s a pretty flat progression. It is a good figure, “said Gollán, who highlighted that the occupation of beds by COVID-19 went from 1,087 to 1,080 in a week and that the time spent in intensive care also decreased, a” positive sign “attributed, in part, to to plasma treatments from recovered patients.

But, even on that plateau, the health system is still “in tension”, admitted the Buenos Aires officials, and that the shadow of the plague is becoming more dense in the interior, which now concentrates 8 percent of the cases in the Province, against 4 percent last week.

“This disease does not stand still, but filters to the rest of the province,” said Gollan and insisted that the provincial administration is working on “slowing down the speed with which that oil stain spreads” m in pursuit of avoid saturation of the health system, while waiting for “a therapeutic response.”

“Today there is no municipality that has not had at least one case of COVID,” Gollán sentenced, and reinforced: “There are more and more districts with community circulation, such as General Pueyrredón – to which Mar del Plata belongs.” And, consequently, less and less the communes in Phase 5 (the one that enables most of the activities): today 43 districts go through this phase; a little over a month ago there were 70.

Meanwhile, there are 39 municipalities in Phase 3 and 53 that are in Phase 4. “For the first time, this week we have more districts in Phase 4 than in Phase 5,” warned Bianco, and stressed that, “far from being controlled this , it happens that it is expanding inward. We are demanding maximum alertness and responsibility for the activities that are allowed ”.

In this sense, Axel Kicillof’s coordinating minister sent “an alarm signal regarding the social behaviors that occur in some municipalities in the interior.” The common denominator, he said, citing the mayors, “is that there was a massive barbecue or some clandestine event. An agglomeration of 50 people is extremely dangerous, much more in a closed place ”, he warned.

In part, those individual licenses determined that this week Balcarce, La Costa, General Viamonte, 25 de Mayo, Junín, Las Flores, Mar Chiquita, Tandil and Villa Gessell should go back from Phase 5 to 4, where recreational outings are prohibited. , meetings of up to ten people or the possibility of food in the restaurant. Or that Coronel Pringles, Laprida and Bragado have to continue in Phase 3, along with the metropolitan area.

Better luck ran Coronel Dorrego, Navarro and Suipacha, who after “controlling” the dynamic behavior of the disease, were able to advance to the last and most flexible stage of isolation.

According to the Province, since the outbreak of the pandemic, therapy beds have increased by 130 percent, but even so the coronavirus hurts in Buenos Aires because, as interpreted by Bianco yesterday, the health system was in “terrible conditions.” Along these lines, he described the previous administration as “a disaster. The last four years have been scorched earth “, and endorsed the recent statements of President Alberto Fernández against Mauricio Macri, reaffirming that” there is no doubt that neoliberalism is worse than the coronavirus in terms of deaths. “

Finally, positive cases of coronavirus in popular neighborhoods in the province of Buenos Aires fell to 13 percent of the total infections in Buenos Aires territory, reported the provincial Ministry of Health.


‘Free’ after 115 days of hospitalization and 28 tampons – Lombardy

Bergamasco returns to the family he had not embraced since March 31st

Marco Carrara returned home to Albino, in the province of Bergamo, after an odyssey lasting months. The 43-year-old – to whom Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte also wrote – was in fact hospitalized for Coronavirus 115 days and had to do 28 swabs before the green light.
It was March 31st when he entered the hospital at Giovanni XXIII, shortly after the death of his father Valerio from Covid. There remains a month and a half, then he spends a month at the San Francesco clinic and when his conditions worsen again he returns to John XXIII. Rehabilitation at the Piccinelli d Scanzorosciate Foundation begins on 8 June, also in the province of Bergamo. On July 24 he was discharged but “I couldn’t go home – he himself tells the Eco di Bergamo – because the swabs were still positive. So I put myself in quarantine in my father’s apartment, with my parents we looked at each other from the terrace but nothing more”. In short, no contact with his wife and two children. Only yesterday they were able to embrace again, at 2 pm, while the bells of the village were ringing for his return.
During these months, in response to an email that Prime Minister Conte had sent him “through his secretary he offered me condolences for the death of my father and wishes me”, and then there was a phone call from the vicar general of Pope Angelo Comastri and the bishop of Bergamo Francesco Beschi.
Now “I would like to go to the cemetery to visit my parents, then for a few days – he concludes – to stay at home with my children and my wife”.
