From Monday, September 28, Czech passengers will probably only be allowed to fly to Greece with a negative test for COVID-19, which will not be older than 72 hours. But the final decision has not yet been made. At the land borders, Greece allows entry into the country only with a negative test for passengers from all countries since 15 July

The Netherlands has also introduced stricter conditions. “Persons arriving in the Netherlands from the Czech Republic, not only from Prague, should be immediately quarantined for ten days.

The king went to negotiate with Babiš. He agreed with him two things that will fundamentally help hockey

Vít Šimánek, ČTK

Hockey is now governed by generally accepted rules imposed by the government, which include the mandatory wearing of veils in winter stadiums (excluding players, members of the implementation team and referees) or limited spectator capacity.

However, the National Sports Agency, led by Milan Hnilička, and the hockey association came up with a draft manual that would allow all domestic team sports (except football, which already has its own modifications) further exceptions.

President of the Czech Ice Hockey Association Tomáš Král (middle), director of the Tipsport ice hockey extra league Josef Řezníček (left) and director of marketing partner Jana Obermajerová from BPA before the start of the hockey extra league.

Vít Šimánek, ČTK

Two points are key in the manual. First; so that the result of a positive test is not quarantine for the whole team. “We are in a worse position than football, because the environment in closed winter stadiums is very complicated. Nevertheless, we have a basic goal, which is to abolish quarantine for the entire team in the event of an infection of individuals, “says Tomáš Král.

“There is no exact number of players, which would be the limit for the quarantine of the whole team. Of course, we are aware that if the situation in one of the regions is unbearable, quarantine may still come, “added the federal president.

The second key point of the manual is the testing of players. If it were to be done before each round, sometimes three times a week, it would be financially and technically unbearable for clubs. In addition, the proposed manual does not provide for regular testing, for example on a weekly basis.

The day before the start, the extra league reports a problem! The match between Vítkovice and Litvínov will not take place on Thursday

“We want to have only those who show symptoms of covidem-19 tested,” King explains, adding that clubs are advised by the union to measure the temperature of players when entering the stadium, in addition to government regulations.

The king expects the manual to be approved by the government in a matter of days. “We discussed this with Prime Minister Babiš, and it could really be in a few days. If that happens, we won’t be offended like hockey and other sports based on the manual. From all sides, even from the government, I feel the will of the sport to help, not to defend it. I believe that we are close to being allowed to play as much as possible, “said King.

President of the Czech Ice Hockey Association Tomáš Král at a press conference to start the hockey extra league.

Vít Šimánek, ČTK

According to him, compensation of clubs for lost profits caused by a reduction in spectator capacity in stadiums is also very probable. Now it is true that in winters for more than a thousand people, the remaining capacity can be used from 50 percent. This means that up to three thousand spectators can come to the stadium with a capacity of five thousand, and up to 5,500 people to the stadium with a capacity of ten thousand.

“It has already been decided that funds from the covid-sport program will be released to compensate clubs for lost admission, leaving almost 800 million unspent. The money can be used for professional sports clubs, “concluded King.

Covid-19: they will activate a new plan if the occupancy of critical beds grows

Faced with the increase in positive coronavirus diagnoses and the growth in the occupation of critical beds destined for Covid-19 patients, the Ministry of Health of the Province is preparing to activate a new phase of the health plan. Hospitals and beds that are not currently dedicated to treating this disease will be allocated and scheduled interventions will be rescheduled, if occupation exceeds certain limits.

Those are some of the axes that the Minister of Health, Diego Cardozo, mentioned yesterday during the presentation of the provincial epidemiological report. “We are at a very delicate and critical moment, and the cases will continue to increase,” the official insisted.

“When we start to exceed 50 percent of Covid critical beds or 65 percent of critical bed occupancy in general (for all pathologies), the planned diagram is to expand coverage and transform hospitals that are not exclusive for coronavirus to also attend to positive cases and thus expand the capacity of beds. Also, diagram with the private institutions, with which we have been working, the same scheme. And finally, it will be resolved that the surgical activities that would require critical beds be reprogrammed, ”explained Cardozo, who added that Córdoba is the only province that has exclusive hospitals for patients with coronavirus.

New scheme

There are two key stages that the Province manages to activate the next phase of the health plan. The first is that the occupancy level of critical beds for Covid patients exceeds 50 percent. The second, that the total of critical beds (for patients of all pathologies) pierce the ceiling of 65 percent of hospitalization. Faced with either hypothesis, a change in strategy will be introduced.

These are not percentages that have a distant horizon. Rather, Cardozo’s words were understood as a preview of what could happen in the coming days.

The projections indicate – in the absence of more complex outbreaks – that some of the two figures that activate the new phase could be reached within the next two weeks.

Currently, there are 540 Covid patients hospitalized in critical beds, which represents 40.6 percent of the available supply. At the beginning of this month, that percentage was 16.9 percent.

While, until yesterday, the occupancy level that includes critical beds for all types of patients was 48.8 percent.

“You are seeing it, the occupation of critical beds for patients with coronavirus grows between one point and a point and a half every day,” the minister said.

Phase and restrictions

Cardozo did not rule out that there may be a reversal of the quarantine phase if the number of infections is triggered even more. “In the event that this stage in which we expand the care offer continues to increase the occupancy of beds, there is always the possibility that one will have to backtrack with the activities,” he replied.

However, he emphasized the need to restrict movement before economic activities. “One thing is the circulation of people and another is the productive activities,” he explained.

He gave as an example that in several cities that for several weeks have registered an escalation of cases, the Emergency Operations Center (COE) “recommended” restricting the movement of people from at least 7 pm to 6 am. But several did not follow that recommendation.

One of them was Río Tercero, whose mayor, Marcos Ferrer, warned that that city only had a free bed yesterday for Covid patients. The minister sought to bring reassurance by stating that the responsibility of providing health care corresponds to the Province and that coverage was guaranteed, even if it is by referring patients to cities with hospitals for Covid.

No family reunions

Gabriela Barbás, Secretary for Health Promotion, confirmed that family gatherings will not be allowed this weekend and was very concerned about the possibility of (unauthorized) meetings for Student Day.

“The isolation measure is the most effective to cut the chain of infections,” he said.

In addition, he asked the contacts of the close contacts of positives to maintain their isolation while awaiting the results of the tests. From the Province they insisted that decreeing community transmission is not evaluated since – they say – epidemiological links continue to be identified in most cases.

Active cases. Currently, there are 7,232 people with the disease. Of that total, 4,108 were diagnosed with Covid-19 in the last seven days. 1,781 cases correspond to the Capital, while to the interior, 2,316.

Keys to the epidemiological situation

Duplication: On average, it is every 15.7 days.

In the Capital, the case duplication rate is 16.5 days, while in the interior of Cordoba it is 15.1. The key is that it does not go below 14 days. Today there are 270 (out of 427) locations without active cases.

In the Capital: 234 neighborhoods have more than two cases.

The Emergency Operations Center (COE) told the municipality to carry out two sanitary cordons: one in Villa Retiro and another in Ciudad de los Cuartetos, due to the increase in cases.

Geriatric Extreme risk areas.

Since the quarantine began, there have been 36 outbreaks in residences for the elderly. In September, 11 episodes were already detected in these institutions, with 184 infected.

Lethality: 1.5% of those infected die.

The report yesterday reported 221 total deaths since the pandemic began. The record was recorded in August, with 92 deaths. So far in September, there are already 79 deceased.

Río Cuarto: On alert due to the rate of infections.

That city was divided into four quadrants and each one has a testing center. A thousand rapid tests and 600 swabs are performed per day. Yesterday it added 122 more infections.
