Ángel Mateos was the Spanish patient who spent the most time in an intensive care unit due to covid-19 infection: in all, 172 days were spent in hospital. A month after leaving intensive care, he lost his life, although the Igualada Hospital in Barcelona, where he was hospitalized, does not clarify whether the death was due to complications due to the new coronavirus.
Mateos worked for 20 years at Hospital de Igualada as an auxiliary, reveals the The world. He was hospitalized on March 16 in intensive care with severe respiratory failure, which culminated in bilateral pneumonia, and suffered several complications, including kidney failure and sepsis. The unit was discharged on September 3, after overcoming all problems.
It is like a phoenix bird that rises again and again from all complications “, said Santi Abreu, head of the anesthesiology and intensive care service.
When he left intensive care, the doctors stressed that he had won the first fight: he was transferred to another hospital unit, specialized in rehabilitation, as the prolonged hospitalization had made him lose muscle mass and he needed to re-educate his body to gain strength.
Yesterday, Wednesday, the Hospital de Igualada made public the death of Ángel Mateos, with a publication on Twitter. “Angel, fighter, leave us a great void, we will always remember”.
Passions at Barcelona do not subside. The Catalan club once again offered their players to go for a pay cut, which led to a split in the team. Gerard Piqué recently added some severity to this situation, having not kept his promise to his colleagues …
Administration “Barcelona“Again suggested that their players agree to a salary cut. The last time the Catalan bosses were forced to take such measures was in the spring, when the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic hit Spain. Due to the powerful outbreak, the quarantine was greatly delayed, and the club began to suffer colossal financial losses. In order to preserve the income of all its employees during the lockdown, Barça decided to redirect part of the players’ salaries to other employees. As a result of long and difficult negotiations, the players agreed to such a redistribution of the budget, refusing 70 percent of their payments. Even then, the team split into two camps: many players did not see a reason for such charity, but Messi managed to convince stingy colleagues.
Quarantine in Spain has long come to an end, but Barcelona is still experiencing financial problems, as many of the coronavirus restrictions in the country are still in place. The club recently offered new contracts to the players, which would cut their salaries by 25 percent. And, of course, not many fell for such a tempting offer. Three players went to a deal with the bosses, whom the club included in the list of “untouchables” in August: Clement Langley, Mark-Andre Ter Stegen and Frankie de Jong… In the summer, Barça decided that these players should not be under any cuts and will remain in the team under any circumstances. Now the players have responded to this trust.
Most of the Barcelona players with whom the club has lately, according to apt expression Ivan Rakitic, treated “like with sacks of potatoes”, gave the bosses a turn from the gate. The players drew up and sent a letter to the management, in which they stated a complete refusal of any negotiations on the reduction of wages. At the same time, one of the leaders of the Catalan opposition became, as usual, Gerard Pique – a veteran of the club, along with Messi plays a big role in making decisions within the team. In August, a new coach Kuman tried to smash the influential cell of the old-timers, take over the management of the team and put in place the “Barcelona mafia”: one, how Busquets, threatened with the bench, and others like Suarez, and did indicate the exit. The peak of repression was spared, and he retained his authority.
Recently, however, the respected Spaniard disappointed his protesters. Everything happened according to a scheme well-known to the Russians: the opposition hero secretly agreed with the authorities, changing his shoes in the air. Piquet became the fourth Barça player to sign a new contract, violating the agreement with his teammates, enshrined in the letter of refusal. The situation in the Catalan dressing room has heated up, many players, according to Spanish sources, Piquet’s decision infuriated.
Why is this so important?
The Piquet decision has a very important political implication. The players’ protest against the proposal to cut wages arose not because or not only because they simply did not want to part with their hard-earned euros. Football players are deliberately boycotting the current Catalan government, namely President Bartomeu. Even the apolitical is tired of his tyranny Lionel Messi, for the first time in his entire appearance at Barça, openly taking the side of the opposition.
Mr Bartomeu is now living his last days as head of the club. After a humiliating 2-8 from Bayern, he was urged to step down immediately, and rumors circulated in the press that Barça’s board of directors might call an early presidential election. Bartomeu, however, did not even move, deciding to sit in his place until the end of the prescribed term: power, as you know, is still a drug. One of the most difficult consequences of his incompetent management for the club was the exorbitant growth of the players’ salaries, and now the cunning boss frantically tries to solve this problem in the shortest possible time, but so far he has failed. The summer transfer campaign, by the way, only aggravated the situation: Barca lost much more than they gained.
After the failure in the Champions League, Piquet was the first to declare his willingness to sacrifice himself for the good of the club, if he needs change. The Spaniard, on the one hand, acted nobly by giving up 25 percent of his income to keep Barça financially stable. But, on the other hand, he made a deal with the “devil” and upset the plans of his colleagues, who decided to naturally squeeze Bartomeu out of the club. Now, the president has formally acquired the support of one of the team’s leaders and has shifted public attention from his own person to a new conflict in the locker room.
What will happen next?
The tension within the team, of course, is immediately reflected in its football results. Last season, Barcelona, mired in intrigue, swayed from side to side for a long time: the team lost to outsiders in the Example and ultimately lost the title, flew out of the King’s Cup at the quarter-final stage, and in the Champions League it was completely publicly disgraced. All dogs, as expected, were lowered onto the unfortunate “shepherd” Kike Setienbut the Spanish grandfather was only partly to blame for the failure of the blue garnet.
So far, Barça’s new coach Ronald Koeman is doing his job no better than his predecessor. The Dutchman broke up half of the squad and almost lost Messi, miraculously escaping a lifelong curse from the Catalan fans, in order to collect from the remaining players another Frankenstein, unable to cope with the conditional “Getafe“(0: 1). Barcelona got off to a good start in the Champions League, but the victory over the modest “Ferencvaros“(5: 1) says little: the real test awaits the Catalans in the confrontation with”Juve“. Fatigue from each other and an unhealthy atmosphere in the team will make themselves felt precisely in major matches, when the players simply cannot give a collective rebuff to a powerful opponent.
The salary conflict is unlikely to sow discord in the team for a long time, but the sediment, as they say, will certainly remain. And the point here is not in a specific conflict, but in their endless succession. Problems accumulate, and sooner or later the cup of patience will run out … Ahead is Barcelona’s clasico, and before this game against Real Madrid on October 24 football players need to try to leave disagreements aside – from the point of view of psychology, the upcoming match is of extreme importance.

Discord: The alternative app to WhatsApp that is gaining strength
The example of the Czech Republic shows that no country can afford to rest on its laurels in the coronavirus epidemic. This is claimed by the Politico news server in an extensive article on how European governments are coping with the coronavirus pandemic. So far, Politico is considered to be the Nordic countries, the Baltics and Greece, and France and Spain have failed.
The Czechia was the first in Europe to introduce compulsory wearing of veils, close schools and part of shops. It was also the first to start easing restrictions on April 9. And that’s when the problem started, the server said.
According to him, Prime Minister Andrej Babiš and his government did not react quickly enough at the first signs of an increase in the spread of the disease in August. “Babiš ignored the warning signs and feared that the new restrictions would cause resentment among entrepreneurs. So he did nothing,” Politico writes about the situation in early September.
After the daily number of infected people exceeded the level that was last in the spring, the then Minister of Health tried to introduce the mandatory wearing of veils in shops. But Babiš vetoed the return to restrictions, recalls Politico.
The exchange rate was changed and the Minister of Health was replaced in the second half of September. “Maybe it’s too late,” adds Politico, pointing out that a third of all cases of the disease that the Czech Republic has registered since the beginning of the epidemic fall on this week.
Neighboring Germany and Austria are managing the epidemic well, even if these countries have made mistakes. The fact that health care in Germany is decided by the individual Länder makes it difficult for Chancellor Angela Merkel to implement national measures. Austria’s most visible mistake falls in the first wave, when the outbreak in the alpine resort of Ischgl failed.
There are quick measures along the way
According to the server, the premiants of the first and second waves are Norway, Finland, Denmark and Iceland. Prompt action and efficient healthcare have made it possible to significantly reduce the spread of the disease. This has saved lives and mitigated the impact on the economy, says Politico. On the contrary, according to the server, Sweden’s policy has led to a significant number of people infected and a high number of deaths. The server also ranks the Baltic states and Greece among the countries that managed the first and second waves well.
Italy was the most deterrent in the first wave. However, using extraordinary powers, the government managed to flatten the disease curve faster than expected. Politico also credits the Italian prime minister with persuading Germany to support the European Reconstruction Fund.
Spain and France earned significantly negative evaluations. Spain has not been able to control the growth of the disease during the summer season. Politico notes the disputes between the Spanish government and the local government over the introduction of a state of emergency in the Madrid area, where the disease is most prevalent.
According to Politica, the summer release is also behind the growth of cases in France. The server accuses French President Emmanuel Macron of failing to put in place effective and coherent health measures. “In March, Macron told the nation that he was at war with the virus. Now it looks like he is losing it,” writes Politico.
According to the server, Britain is one of the European countries where the first wave of the epidemic exposed the shortcomings of the government’s approach. “(British Prime Minister) Johnson has difficulty formulating a long-term strategy or a clear message from the public,” notes Politico. The British prime minister also has to face growing dissatisfaction in the Conservative Party, although the failures of the first wave of the epidemic have not yet had a significant effect on Conservative preferences.

A parrot has become a celebrity on social media after being recorded ‘laughing’ like a movie villain. He video of the particular moment is a success in YouTube and here we show you more details about this story.
The recording begins with the bird entering a room in a house where it apparently lives. In this place, the animal in this story began to ‘laugh’, but with such a particular style that it strongly attracted the attention of thousands of users.
Precisely, Internet users from countries such as the United States, Mexico and Spain, pointed out that the parrot “laughs like a supervillain.” Many argue that his style is very similar to that of the ‘Joker’, popular DC antagonist who was played by the actor Joaquin Phoenix.
The channel YouTube, Fall, was in charge of spreading the video of the parrot on May 10, 2015 and since then the clip has not stopped generating impact. A strong proof of this is the large number of views it currently has: more than 11 million. There is no doubt that animals always attract attention on the Internet with their behaviors.
According to an investigation by the University of the Basque Country (Spain) on the effects of the pandemic, now there is greater uncertainty and concern about suffering from Covid-19 or losing loved ones; a decrease in confidence and optimism, especially in women and in people in poor employment situations; and an increase in irritability, again with a greater impact on women and the unemployed.
If we do not act now, in concert with research with vaccines and treatments, the post-pandemic outlook will be bleak for the mental health of millions of people.
And taking action, obviously, is not prescribing more antidepressants or anxiolytics, or building more psychiatric hospitals. Both actions are necessary to address some consequences; however, the idea is to be proactive and avoid them.
In response to the feeling of anxiety, according to the consulting firm Llorente y Cuenca (LLYC), there has been a rapid and broad change that goes from the “concept of wellness [bienestar], centered on the individual, al by wellbeing [bienestar integral], a more holistic vision that includes different people and sectors of our societies ”.
What does this mean? A call for the participation of the whole society in the benefits of well-being.
Wellbeing is defined as the state of satisfaction and tranquility that a person presents, thanks to their good physical and mental conditions.
“If societies and companies are unable to focus holistically on people’s well-being (including physical, emotional and spiritual health), it will be almost impossible to create safety nets that allow citizens to return to work and be productive ”, They explain from LLYC.
For this reason, I have always opted for wellness programs in all their aspects: emotional, physical, social and financial. This is what happens every November in the event “In Body and Soul”, which this year will be held in an online version, with more universal access, more experts and with the empowering and transforming energy of always.
To keep your balance in difficult times, “you have to grab the bull by the horns” and get going, as a popular saying reflects.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the pandemic has disrupted or paralyzed mental health services in 93% of countries. And if, as the WHO itself says, mental health is related to the promotion of well-being, the prevention of mental disorders and treatment, then let’s look for our own tools. Healthy living is much more than curing or protecting yourself from disease.
