Volkswagen Arteon, the flagship model of the brand, is sold in a five-door liftback format. Designers of the studio X-Tomi Design have published independent renderings of the speed wagon from VW Arteon.

The car is distinguished by a long body, as for a station wagon. At the beginning of the last century, models such as shooting break were intended for hunters and allowed accommodating guns and equipment, and therefore the trunk of such a car is still large.

Nowadays, models of such cars are distinguished by a sloping shape of the roof at the back, which hints at the sporting spirit and refers to the coupe bodies. A similar solution can be seen on this Volkswagen Arteon – a sloping roof improves aerodynamics, which is important for a car aimed at speed.

The author of the renderings also introduced the three-door version of the Volkswagen Arteon speed wagon, which has even more in common with the coupe body.

Unfortunately, the German developers did not report plans to release “Arteon” in a similar body. Today in Russia you can buy a VW Arteon liftback, and the cost of the model starts from an impressive mark of 2.64 million rubles.

This test can be transposed to the risks on cruise ships or at weddings, say the researchers. He also underlines the need to scrupulously respect barrier gestures.

Especially since all the guests knew who the “zero patient” was, while in the case of the Covid-19, it is not uncommon to be asymptomatic.

In addition, the fluorescent liquid only spread by contact, while SARS-CoV-2 is also transmitted by droplets, which can remain suspended in the air. However, in a meal, it is unlikely that the guests wear a protective mask.

Why does California have low COVID-19 numbers in the US drama? – Telemundo 52

LOS ANGELES – Early confinement and other prevention measures promoted by the state government have allowed California, with more than 40 million inhabitants and some 300 deaths from COVID-19, to become an example of how to deal with the coronavirus pandemic in United States.

So far, the nation’s largest metropolis, Los Angeles, with more than 10 million citizens, has recorded fewer than 6,000 cases and 132 deaths, far from New York City, which has 8 and a half million inhabitants. and it has confirmed some 130,000 infections and more than 4,000 deaths.

“California has been doing quite well in the COVID-19 pandemic, with a relatively low number of infected per 100,000 people and a low death rate,” said Professor Karin Michels, head of the Department of Epidemiology at the School of Public Health, University of California Los Angeles (UCLA).

PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES

California Governor Gavin Newsom was one of the first in the country to enact relatively strict confinement, allowing only “essential” activities such as going to the grocery store and pharmacy, and exercising respect for safety distances between people.

In contrast, eight states – Arkansas, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, South Carolina, Utah, and Wyoming – have not mandated their residents to stay home.

“The governor issued ‘home security’ and ‘shelter’ orders relatively quickly. Universities like UCLA and other large employers closed even earlier and sent people to work, teach and study from home,” said Michels, who has extensive experience in disease prevention, public health and statistical methods.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, California schools may continue to be closed until the end of August.

Newsom also took the initiative to decree the closure of schools, which will remain closed until next year, as a preventive measure; in asking President Donald Trump to send a hospital ship to Los Angeles to support local hospitals before it reached a hypothetical peak in the number of cases, which has not yet occurred; and in closing the state’s beaches and parks.

Another point that seems to have helped so far in the exceptional case of California against COVID-19, according to experts, is the low population density of the state, which reduces the possibility of contagion and allows better compliance with the rules of social distancing.

“TO
 Despite having a large population, Californians do not live in
as dense as New Yorkers. Cities spread with
Few skyscrapers: Relative to other states, many more people in
 California lives in houses, not in apartment buildings or buildings
high, “summarizes Michels, who is based on data from a study of his
college.

YOUNG PEOPLE, LESS DEATHS PER CAPITA

California has had a much lower per capita death rate than most of the nation’s largest states, with the exception of Texas.

“The state has a low average age and a high
density of healthcare facilities, which may have contributed to
 the low mortality rate, “explained Michels.

According to a recent study published in The Lancet, the mortality rate among those infected with 20 years of age is 0.03%, while for those 70 years of age it is 8.6%.

Cautious tone

The
 Californian authorities have projected alarming numbers in the
recent weeks, although so far those estimates have not been
compliment.

Newsom himself foresaw two weeks ago that more than half the state’s population, or about 25 million people, would become infected, so he begged its residents to follow the guidelines to the letter.

For his part, the mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti, did not hesitate to forecast that the city “would follow in the footsteps of New York” in number of cases, a catastrophic scenario that is still far away.

COVID-19 affects children differently than adults. This is what the doctors say in the following video.

The United States on Monday exceeded 10,000 deaths from coronavirus, with 10,335 and almost 350,000 infected, making it the third country with the most deaths after Italy and Spain, according to the count of the Center for Systems, Science and Engineering (CSSE) from Johns Hopkins University (Maryland).

The new data is known after this Sunday
President Donald Trump, during his usual daily press conference,
make sure “this will probably be the hardest week, between this
week and next, and there will be a lot of death. ”

The state of New York, the great epicenter of the pandemic in the United States, accumulates with these latest figures a total of 4,758 deaths and 130,689 confirmed cases of COVID-19, compared to just over 122,000 that it had a day earlier.

Analysts recorded a reduction in the “radius of movement” of urban residents :: Society :: RBC

“The figure of 175 km is no coincidence: to a large extent [она] It was taken due to the fact that people often travel outside the city, air travel, trips from the city on business trips were also taken into account. If you look at the figures for the Far East, for example, then there they are even higher. Just a drop to 37 km shows that people generally began to move less, not only within the city, ”said RBC analyst at Rosbank Grigory Belov.

In April, after the authorities introduced strict measures of self-isolation, the average radius of movement in Moscow was reduced to 37 km. Thus, Muscovites’ trips are 81% shorter. Moscow has become a leader in the ranking of reduced movement.

  • Moscow – 81%;
  • Moscow Region – 69%;
  • Kaluga – 59%;
  • Nizhny Novgorod and St. Petersburg at 58%;
  • Vladimir – 57%;
  • Krasnodar – 56%;
  • Volgograd – 53%;
  • Bashkortostan – 50%.

The range of movement in Tatarstan (49%), Krasnoyarsk (46%), Novosibirsk (44%), Kamchatka (43%) and Khabarovsk (42%) decreased less than half.

On average across Russia, the radius of Rosbank’s customers has decreased at least twice, experts say.

At the same time, the bank said that the drop in the number of new deposits fell sharply (by 47%) only at the very beginning of April, and “by the beginning of the third week of isolation, clients opened deposits at the same pace as before the non-working month was announced.” By April 20, the bank added, this figure showed an increase of 10%.

Virologist named deadline for reducing the number of new infected COVID-19 :: Society :: RBC

The situation with the spread of coronavirus in Russia is stabilizing, and in a few weeks the number of people infected with the infection may begin to decline per day. About this “RIA Novosti” said the doctor of medical sciences and professor Anatoly Altstein.

According to him, in the last week the number of confirmed cases of infection has been falling slightly and is increasing slightly day by day. The most unfavorable data were 5.8 thousand and 6.1 thousand cases detected per day, however, 6 thousand new infections were also on April 19.

Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences has named the deadline for the completion of the coronavirus pandemic in Russia

“We are not breaking into a cloudless height with these diseases, with the frequency of diseases, and somewhere around we are close to a plateau. I think that in a couple of weeks, probably, we will observe a decrease, ”said the virologist.

Earlier in April, Altstein did not rule out the possibility that Moscow had already reached the peak of the epidemic. Galina Kozhevnikova, head of the department of infectious diseases at RUDN University, suggested that the capital will peak at the beginning of the May holidays, and other regions of the country a week later.
