Pompeo considered unacceptable the desire of China to consider the South China Sea an empire :: Politics :: RBC

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo believes that China refers to the South China Sea as its “maritime empire.” He announced this on Twitter.

“China cannot be allowed to treat the South China Sea as its maritime empire,” Pompeo wrote.

According to the Secretary of State, the United States welcomes the position of ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) leaders in resolving disputes over the South China Sea in accordance with international law.

China accuses U.S. ships of invading disputed islands

In June 2019, at the Shangri-La Dialog intergovernmental security forum in Singapore, Chinese Defense Minister Wei Fenhe said Beijing was opposed to Washington’s actions in the South China Sea.

As Wei Fenhe said, “some countries outside the region” enter the South China Sea “to build muscle in the name of freedom of navigation”. In addition, Beijing objects to Washington’s policy on the Taiwan issue, the minister said.

“No attempt to split China will succeed. Any interference with the Taiwan issue is doomed to failure, ”said Wei Fenhe, adding that China intends to“ fight to the end. ”

Pompeo expressed concern about the militarization of the PRC of the South China Sea

China leads territorial disputes with some Asian countries regarding the Paracel Islands, Spratly Islands and Scarborough Reef, located in the South China Sea. In addition to China, Vietnam, Taiwan, Malaysia, the Philippines and Brunei also claim the islands. The United States is not a party to the dispute, but does not recognize the territorial claims of China.

Coronavirus. Head, toes, lungs, kidneys… the symptoms multiply, know them

From head to toes, including lungs and even the kidneys: every week, the list of symptoms caused by the new coronavirus is growing and few organs seem to be spared from this disease, which varies from mild to severe.

In the space of three months, what had started as an atypical flu has turned into a veritable catalog of syndromes which in their most severe forms can trigger these now famous “Cytokine storms”, a runaway immune response that can lead to death.

It is not uncommon for a virus to cause so many manifestations, but certain symptoms of SARS-CoV-2, such as loss of smell or blood clots, seem very specific to this epidemic.

> Follow our live news from Monday, May 11, on the coronavirus pandemic

Affected children too

Most viruses can damage tissue where it reproduces or cause collateral damage to the immune system that fights infectionsays Jeremy Rossman, virology expert at the British University of Kent.

Doctors suspect Covid-19 may be responsible for the hospitalization of dozens of children in New York, London and Paris with inflammatory conditions multi-systemic rare, suggesting an atypical form of Kawasaki disease or toxic shock syndrome, which attacks the walls of the arteries and can cause organ failure.

Dozens of medical studies have described other potentially lethal consequences of the disease, including stroke and heart damage.

Researchers at Nanjing University of Medicine (China) have reported cases of patients who developed urinary complications and acute kidney damage.

They observed upheavals in the male sex hormones, advising the young men eager to have children to consult when cured.

“Beware of just about everything”

Is this spectrum of symptoms unique? Not necessarily. In a common disease, complications, even rare, will occur frequently, decrypts Babak Javid, specialist in infectious diseases at the Cambridge University Hospital Center.

Over 4 million cases have been reported worldwide, but the true number of infections could reach tens or even hundreds of millions, according to Babak Javid. If one person in a thousand, even in ten thousand, develops complications, that still makes thousands of people.

General practitioners, on the front line, were the first to try to identify patterns in the evolution of the epidemic.

We were told at the start: fever, headache, small cough. We were added: runny nose, itchy throat. Then there were the digestive symptoms: diarrhea, stomach ache, remembers Sylvie Monnoye, family doctor in Paris.

Then pain in the rib cage, loss of taste and smell, skin connections like hives or frostbite on the toes, neurological disorders … We started to think that we should be wary of just about everything, comments Dr. Monnoye.

Chills, fever and cough, the most common symptoms

These testimonies are supported by an internal report from the Center for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) in the United States, which analyzed the symptoms of 2,591 patients hospitalized between March 1 and May 1.

Three-quarters of the patients had chills, fever and / or cough, and almost as much difficulty breathing, the most common symptoms of the new coronavirus.

Almost a third complained of body aches, ditto for diarrhea; a quarter of the nausea or vomiting. Some 18% had headaches, 10 to 15% had lung or abdominal problems, runny nose, sore throat.

However, until the end of April, the CDC had only listed three symptoms: cough, fever and difficulty breathing. Her website has since been updated, but only added a few: chills, body aches, headaches, loss of smell. French health authorities did the same in early May.

Blood clots, kidney failure

Loss of smell (anosmia) and taste (ageusia) was only detected in 3.5% of patients in the CDC cohort, but experts believe these symptoms are more common in less severe cases .

Anosmia and ageusia rarely occur with other viruses. Much like the development of blood clots, which studies have linked to heart problems, hepatic thrombosis, pulmonary embolism and brain damage in Covid-19 patients.

When a Covid-19 patient is very ill, they may have problems with blood clots, which seem to be much more common than with other viruses., according to Babak Javid, who concludes: Compared to the flu, you’re more likely to get very sick and die.

The deputy introduced to the Parliament a project to lift the ban on St. George ribbons :: Politics :: RBC

The deputy from the party “Opposition Platform – For Life” Nestor Shufrich introduced a bill to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on the lifting of the ban on St. George ribbons. The document is published on the website of the Rada.

He proposed that the law “On Amendments to the Code of Ukraine on Administrative Offenses Regarding the Prohibition of Production and Propaganda of the St. George (Guard) Ribbon” be invalidated.

Poroshenko signed a law banning St. George’s ribbon in Ukraine

In June 2017, the then President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko signed a law prohibiting the production and promotion of St. George ribbons in the country. Poroshenko said that they are a symbol of “aggression against Ukraine in 2014-2017,” and not World War II.

Public demonstration, use and wearing of this symbol or its image is punishable by a fine with confiscation of the ribbon or objects on which it is depicted, and for repeated violation – up to 15 days of arrest.

China after the appearance of the coronavirus “made a terrible mistake” and tried to hide it, said US President Donald Trump in an interview with Fox News.

“I think they [власти Китая] made a terrible mistake and did not want to admit it. We wanted to come [в КНР для проведения расследования]but they didn’t want to let us in, even the World Health Organization did not want to let us in. They recognized this, but much later, and not immediately. In my opinion, they made a mistake and tried to hide it, put out it like a fire, and couldn’t do it, ”Trump said.

According to him, the worst decision of the PRC authorities was that “they banned entry to China, but did not banned entry [своим жителям] in the US and around the world. “

The fact that the coronavirus was created in one of the laboratories in China, and its employee accidentally became the first to be infected, was announced in mid-April by Fox News. The US Department of State Intelligence and Research Bureau, however, did not support this version, explaining its position by the lack of evidence.

However, May 1 that he has information to talk about the appearance of coronavirus in the Chinese laboratory, Trump said. Two days later, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also reported a “significant amount” of evidence for this version. According to him, this is not the first time that the world is faced with the threat of a virus due to “failures in the Chinese laboratory,” and the US can confirm that the Chinese Communist Party “did everything possible so that the world wouldn’t recognize [о ситуации с коронавирусом] in a timely manner”.

The fact that China destroyed evidence of experiments with coronavirus in the laboratory follows from the report of the alliance of special services of the USA, Great Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, The Daily Telegraph reported. According to the US Department of Homeland Security, China was hiding data on coronavirus in order to increase the supply of medicines and remedies, AP writes.

In China, data on the creation of a coronavirus by man has been refuted. Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijiang recalled that WHO “has repeatedly stated that there is no evidence that the new coronavirus was created in the laboratory.”
