Gaviria was quarantined for six weeks in March and April after infection during the race in the United Arab Emirates. Now he is facing further isolation. Out of a total of 492 recent samples taken on the Giro, two were positive, in the second case they were employees of the AG2R La Mondiale stable.
“Gaviria was immediately isolated, feeling well and has no symptoms. All other riders and team members were negative and will undergo further testing today,” the UAE team said in a statement. In this year’s Gira, the winner of the 2017 Gaviria points competition was the seventh best, and he only made it into the top ten once.
The race, from which two complete sets resigned last week due to the covid-19 disease, continues today, after a day off, with the 16th stage, starting in Udine. Portuguese leader Joao Almeida will enter the decisive third week in a pink jersey, 15 seconds ahead. The race should end on Sunday in Milan.
One week ago, Sunday and Monday’s testing among all Gira participants yielded eight positive results from five different teams, including stars Michael Matthews and Steven Kruijswijk. Both had to leave the race and the complete Mitchelton-Scott and Jumbo-Visma teams resigned. He had previously eliminated the covid of the British co-Bavarian Simon Yates.
An extraordinary round of inspections at the end of the week calmed the peloton, as all results were negative. Two more cases have arrived today, and a question mark hangs over Gira’s completion.
In parallel with this, the third of the cycling Grand Tours Vuelta will start today with Zdeněk Štybar and Jan Hirt in Irun, Spain, albeit in an abbreviated form without three stages. The first wave of tests did not reveal any cases of infection among cyclists, but two employees were positive – one each in the Bahrain-McLaren and Sunweb teams.
NEW – A name evoking the GTO, a rear hatch covered with louvers: Maranello’s latest bespoke creation offers a journey of nostalgia.
Even in the choice of appellation, the shadow of the famous Ferrari 250 GTO (O for Omologato) seems to have hovered over the design of the latest bespoke creation from the House of Maranello. From the 812 Superfast from which it borrows the platform and the V12, the Ferrari Omologato has kept only the windshield and headlamps. Everything else is new. This is what the informed European collector, at the origin of the order, wanted.
From the first sketches to the delivery of this unique berlinetta, two years have passed. The 250 GTO clearly inspired this unique berlinetta. The sloping and smooth front hood adopts two gills and a flattened oval grille that refer to those of the GTO of 1962. ‘a light car. The rear scrambles the cards. The louvers covering the large bezel suggest that the engine is installed at the rear. The two double lights of the 812 Superfast are replaced by a single equipment.
The interior treatment takes a trip back to the 1960s. Like those in racing cars and the 250 GTO, the leather and jeans fabric seats are electric blue, while the metal parts of the dashboard and the The arch housing the gearbox knobs mimic the crackle paintwork of sixties GTs.
It may not seem so, but the current (only the fourth) generation of the iconic luxury esúvéček introduced itself to the world eight years ago. Yeah, time really flies. Land Rover is also working hard on a successor, which should appear next year.
It arrives in a slightly different world than the one in which the current version was born. Take the competition in particular, it has grown significantly in recent years. In addition to the traditional rival in the form of the Mercedes GLS (formerly GL), there are new rivals Bentley Bentayga, Rolls-Royce Cullinan and BMW X7. But we should not forget the Aston Martin DBX and Lamborghini Urus. Although these cars are not so practical, they try to be more sporty, but they are still more than five meters long and luxurious SUVs, whose logos on the hood clearly reveal that the owner does not have deep pockets. And Range Rover traditionally targets such customers as well.
Still at the level
When I look at the current generation, I say to myself that it doesn’t look like retirement at all. The Range Rover looks fresh even for its age, thanks to a timeless and unmistakable look. I’ve always liked that he looks majestic and representative, but certainly not bloated. After all, try to compare the Range Rover with the above – mentioned rivals – they bet on a significantly more ornate and striking design.
The inside doesn’t look outdated either. Of course, there are luxurious and very pleasant to the touch soft materials, which can be found throughout the cabin, including door panels and decking. Our car got leather upholstery in a nice brown color, the rest of the cabin was black. If I chose the shape of the interior, I would forgive the elements in the piano lacquer, I don’t really like high-gloss black plastic. On the one hand, I don’t like the look, but above all, I don’t mind how every speck of dust, every particle of pollen can be seen on them, or how quickly they become trapped.
Otherwise, I have nothing to complain about the design of the cabin, valuable materials are complemented by perfect workmanship and there are also a few “little things” that have always made me look forward to closing the door behind me from the inside.
For example, sofas are simply perfect. The front ones in the tested Autobiography equipment can be adjusted in 24 directions, can of course heat and ventilate, and add a massage function with several different programs. The cool Meridian Surround audio system with 19 speakers and 825 watts of power also contributes to the comfort.
But I also like the detail in the form of a two-part sun visor, which you can shade not only the front window, but also the side window. Sure, it’s a small thing, but it’s useful.
During the 2017 upgrade, the Range Rover lost most of the classic controls, instead receiving a touch control that includes two 10-inch screens on the center panel. The Land Rover solution at the bottom display combines a touch screen with rotary knobs, which you can use mainly when setting the air conditioning temperature. But it is also used, for example, to activate the heating or ventilation of the seats. Thanks to the high resolution, the graphics of both displays are nice to look at, and the controls also have logic, but I still think that the classic buttons are superior to tapping a finger on the screen. Otherwise, the infotainment itself seems quite good to me. And toys could be pleased with a digital instrument panel with several display options.
The Range Rover is a large car, so it’s no surprise that it provides blessed seating for passengers of all types of characters in both rows. Due to the generous width of the interior, you don’t have to worry even when three adults sit side by side in the second row.
Range Rover P400
However, our piece was equipped with rear seats Class Business Comfort, focused mainly on two passengers. This package (standard on Autobiography) includes two seats that are electrically adjustable in 22 directions with the ability to fold the backrest up to 40 degrees.
In addition, the place at the back right is ready to offer a papaláš position. The passenger has a control at his disposal, with which he can move the seat in front of him completely forward and still partially fold down his backrest. And then he can stretch his legs just fine.
Let’s look at the trunk. The lid is traditionally divided into two parts, both of which are electronically controlled. The lower part can serve as a temporary sitting, but it can also interfere a bit. If you are a smaller figure, you will find it harder to get through the stray things in the back seats.
The case is very spacious overall, offers up to 707 liters in the base and will also please with regular shapes. However, due to the size of the car and its clear height, you have to reckon with a high loading edge. It can be moved by lowering the air chassis with a button directly from the boot, but it still remains relatively high.
Yeah, that would work
But the fact that the Range Rover is large, spacious and luxurious inside is already a well-known thing. The main reason why we are talking about this eight-year-old SUV today is hidden under the hood.
The Range Rover recently received the P400 with a new engine that also appears on other Land Rover and Jaguar models – an in-line, double-supercharged six-cylinder Ingenium family with mild-hybrid technology that includes a 48V on-board power supply, starter-generator with a belt drive and a lithium-ion battery in which electrical energy is stored during deceleration.
The in-line three-liter was developed to be light, provide more power and at the same time be more economical. Therefore, it uses a supercharging system that combines an exhaust-powered turbocharger with an electrically rotated compressor.
Efficiency is aided by continuous variable valve timing, while variable cam timing is responsible for optimal combustion in all conditions. As a result, compared to the three-liter fork, the new Ingenium four-cylinder architecture, according to official figures, emits 12% less carbon dioxide, while particulate emissions fell by 75%.
Although the engine has to deal with a “crumb” weighing more than 2.3 tons, it does not look as if it has somehow overtaken at work. It really has enough power – the highest output of 294 kW (400 hp) gives between 5500 and 6500 rpm, the maximum torque of 550 Nm even provides between 2000 and 5000 rpm. The main thing is that there are portions here.
No wonder the big SUV manages to sprint from rest to a hundred in 6.3 seconds and drives up to 225 km / h. Acceleration from 80 to 120 km / h also suggests a willingness to accelerate. Here the Range Rover P400 puts in just 4.1 seconds.
Range Rover P400
In terms of driving, the new engine is really very interesting. Thanks to the double supercharging, in which the compressor also plays a role, the three-liter will please with immediate reactions to the gas and will amaze with a relaxed, cultivated, but at the same time confident and tireless expression. In addition, it has a very pleasant sound, such a nice core. Even occasionally, a decent hum is heard from the exhaust when the accelerator is released. But really only decent, it’s still an aristocratic Range Rover.
He floats rather than rides
But you know what? Although the in-line six in the field of acceleration offers impressive capabilities, you probably still let it work in a mild team and at low speeds. The Range Rover has a special effect on the driver – maybe not all of them, but I’m sure I’m not the only one who always drives more “cool” in this car.
This is due to a combination of several factors. The luxurious, and therefore soothing, interior has already been discussed. But I haven’t had a chance to mention the silence in the cabin yet. So yes, there is indeed an admirable silence in the cab of a car of this size and shape, even on the highway.
Then there’s the range behind the wheel for the Range Rover, which simply means you feel like you’re sitting almost over the car. The Range Rover sits high, which is further enhanced by the traditionally low-lying dashboard. In a tall car with large windows and a large front hood, you feel elevated even in traffic – and I don’t mean that in the wrong sense, on the contrary. You just have a nice overview of what’s happening “below you”, you’re not going anywhere and you’re over it.
Slower and easier driving also contributes to comfort, but it deceives the body a bit, as it is at the same time surprisingly precise and sensitive.
And the air suspension deserves special praise, which of course can also change the ground clearance of the car depending on the driver’s needs. The standard clear height is 220 millimeters, the maximum is 297 mm. But that’s not the main thing.
What matters is the way the Range Rover moves on the air chassis on the roads: gracefully and majestically. A slight sway then evokes the feeling that perhaps it is floating – well, even on twenty-one-inch wheels, this large esúvéčko, despite the vast majority of inequalities, is imperceptibly transmitted. You will notice large holes or, for example, sunken channels in the interior, but most of the time you will only hear a muffled thump that does not seem to affect your car.
Remarkably, the Range Rover doesn’t decide the speed either. Although you can easily get the impression behind the big wheel that the Brit is doing everything to keep you from rushing, it can be unexpectedly agile even in corners. He just wants to overcome such a mental block that you do something wrong, leave the comfort zone and believe the car that it can handle things that are not emotionally natural to it. Do it and then you may be surprised to see how willingly this heavy and tall mastodon can circle a tight arc. But you probably won’t enjoy it for long.
Range Rover P400
I really believe that you will enjoy the Range Rover the most when driving quietly in comfort mode. Although he has 400 horses.
Now it occurs to me that I did not mention the transmission. This is partly because the eight-speed machine shifts so finely that you don’t know most of it.
And consumption? Of course, the 400-horsepower six-cylinder petrol engine in a large and heavy car needs its own, so don’t expect miracles. But it’s not bad either. I drove in the city for 14.8 l / 100 km, outside the city and the highway for 9.7 l / 100 km and the total average, which included hundreds of kilometers in various conditions, was 11.8 l / 100 km.
Even today, the current Range Rover is an exceptional and magnificent car eight years after its introduction. In his case, it really is true that age is just a number.
I still like the size of the big SUV and the amazing interior is priceless – such luxury doesn’t age. In my opinion, the in-line six-cylinder was also a success for the Land Rover, and it fits nicely with the brand’s flagship with its character, which combines strength and sophistication.
Even after those years, however, he still stunned the way the Range Rover combines the features of a luxury sedan with practicality and off-road capabilities. In addition, he succeeds without any major compromises.
This car can just do everything.
Of course, it’s not free, Range Rover remains an expensive commodity. Prices start at CZK 2,986,643 per item with a three-liter diesel and HSE equipment.
You need CZK 3,156,406 for the tested six-cylinder petrol engine. And our car in the Autobiography version with several surcharges costs about 4.1 million crowns.
Mexico adds more than 700 thousand infections by Covid-19; however, it is already eight weeks in which the record is going down. File photo: Cuartoscuro
The Secretary of Foreign Relations (SRE), Marcelo Ebrard, reported that there are seven vaccines against Covid-19, from different nations, seeking to extend their tests to our country.
In a conference, the foreign minister explained that due to the work with governments and companies of other nations, there are drugs that are in the process of carrying out Phase 3 tests in Mexico, so they await the approval of Cofepris and the Ministry of Health.
The vaccines that seek to carry out their tests in Mexican territory are: Janssen and Novavax, from the United States; Sputnik V, from Russia; Cansino, from China; Curevac, from Germany; Sanofi Pasteur, from France; and Reithera, from Italy.
“There are already seven vaccines from different countries that have expressed interest or are in the process, before Cofepris and Ssa, to carry out phase 3 in Mexico or its equivalent,” he said.
According to the information presented, the tentative period for the start of Phase 3 of the Janssen, Novavax, Sputnik V, Cansino and Curevac vaccines is next October; while for Sanofi-Pasteur, it is for January 2021 and for Reithera there is still no fixed date.
The Foreign Minister also indicated that this week Mexico will formalize the agreement to participate in the multilateral mechanism around the world on coronavirus vaccines, which is led by the UN and is called COVAX.
“It would be the first binding contract in Mexico for access to vaccines against Covid-19,” he said.
He also commented that this Tuesday President Andrés Manuel López Obrador will participate in the UN General Assembly, in which he will address the issue of the effort to guarantee universal access to vaccines against SARS-CoV-2.
Torreón, Coahuila.- Given the decrease in Covid-19 tests in the Drive-Thru of the Faculty of Medicine of the Autonomous University of Coahuila, the services of this place were stopped, confirmed Dr. Salvador Chavarría Vázquez.
He explained that it was in the months of May, June and July where the highest number of tests were registered, being up to 300 daily, but after those months the decrease came and now the transmission of infections is below one.
“I think that right now the transmission of infections is below one and that is good.”
He pointed out that saying it is below one means that the infected person cannot spread the disease to another person. When it is above one it is massive and dangerous.
“The contagion curve decreases when those who carry it are no longer so many, but that does not mean that we must lower our guard, because there is still no vaccine and that forces us to continue taking all due precautions,” he concluded.
The Artcurial house is auctioning off, on September 27 in Gironde, the civilian and military vehicles of this great Bordeaux figure.
Sales follow each other but do not resemble each other. Fifteen days after the dispersal of André Trigano’s automobiles, the Motorcars department of Artcurial sells the André Lurton collection. Deceased last year at age 94, this great Bordeaux figure, long president of the Syndicat viticole AOC Entre-Deux-Mers and administrator of the Interprofessional Bordeaux Wine Council (CIVB), owner of Château Bonnet, in the heart of Entre-deux-Mers, had built a collection vehicles which certainly had neither the prestige nor the richness of that of Trigano but which recounted his personal journey.
Passionate about mechanics from a young age, André Lurton had for many years assembled vehicles revealing his story, that of his family and that of his wife, Elisabeth Garros. The Simca 6 reminded him of the car from his honeymoon in Chamonix. On the way back, the breakage of a shock absorber had forced them to wait two days on the banks of the Loire for the arrival of

“The second wave is here. There are still theoretical discussions here as to whether the first wave is still ending, or whether it is the second wave. In Austria, they have also declared that this is the second wave. I personally think that this is the second wave, “Prymula said on Czech Television.
According to Prymula, the announcement of the second wave is a formal matter, but the current situation can already be considered, the epidemiologist added. We are now seeing a higher increase in confirmed cases than in the first wave, and there was a delay between the current growth and the spring, he explained.
According to him, the same number of hospitalizations can be in hospitals in 14 days to three weeks as in the spring. Should the infection spread as explosively as before, hospitals could reach the capacity limits of reserved beds for patients with covid-19. If no measures were taken, Czech hospitals could be at the limit capacity at the end of October, he said.
At present, according to Prymula, it is necessary to “flatten” the infection curve. If this fails in about three weeks, the covid wards could reopen in hospitals, he added.
According to Prymula, there are no measures that would dramatically change the curve to immediately reduce the number of diseases. However, it is clear that short-range air transmission dominates. He described Prymul as the singing of people side by side. Therefore, people should avoid celebrations for at least a month in order to reduce the growing curve of those infected.
In trends, the Czechia is almost the worst in Europe, warns Prymula
The increase in confirmed cases of covid-19 accelerated in the Czech Republic over the weekend. On Saturday, the country saw a record 1,541 infections, which is almost 100 more than on Friday. On days off, laboratories tend to test less. The Ministry of Health will publish Saturday’s number of tests on Sunday evening.
According to the number of cases in 14 days per 100 thousand inhabitants, the Czechia is the third most affected country in the EU, the situation is worse only in Spain and France.
According to Prymula, the Czechia wasted the spring culture of wearing veils. “As we were in the best starting position, today I dare say that Spain is doing better than us. Because Spain today has high numbers, but in a descending trajectory. We’re heading up. It doesn’t just matter the number, but the trends, “he said. In trends, the Czechia is almost the worst in Europe, he added.
Shonka: The increase in cases is reflected in the workload of general practitioners
The high increase in cases is reflected in the workload of general practitioners, said Petr Šonka, chairman of the Association of General Practitioners, who was also a guest of Václav Moravec’s Questions.
“GPs now bear the brunt of the increase, as most patients turn to us, sending them for testing, of course, that means a waste of time and affects the operation of our surgeries, because it’s at the expense of preventive care and other things,” he says. Shonka.
According to him, the situation is complicated by the fact that hygienic stations are not catching up. “Hats off before colleagues perform at hygienic stations. But from what we see daily in the field and in contact with them, it is evident that they are at the limit of their capacities. We have information from patients that their hygiene is not heard until the fifth of the sixth day after contact, “said the chairman of the Association of General Practitioners.
Tests of saliva will increase capacity, said Prymula
In Václav Moravec’s Questions, Roman Prymula stated that the capacity for coronavirus testing could be doubled by 40 October to 40,000 tests per day. Within a few weeks, new saliva rapid tests, the so-called LAMP tests, should be launched on the market, which will expand the existing range.
At present, up to 18,500 tests are performed daily in the Czech Republic. With the involvement of academia, it is currently possible to reach a testing capacity of 20,000 tests per day, says Prymula.
The infection is now detected in the Czech Republic by nasopharyngeal swabs. In October, saliva tests should be available in the Czech Republic, for which the result should be known in approximately 45 minutes. Now people have a result within 48 hours. Saliva tests have long been used in other diseases.
According to Prymula, new tests can also be significantly cheaper. For the current test, the Ministry of Health set a maximum price of 1,674 crowns and 82 crowns for consumption. “It is absolutely desirable for those tests to fall in price. Now will be a truly unique opportunity during October to succeed, “said Prymula.
LAMP-tests could be half cheaper, other tests should be available at a lower price than the current one.
The necessary quarantine period was also a topic of debate. Previously it had to be observed for two weeks, now ten days are enough in the Czech Republic. The incubation time varies according to Prymula. It is currently three to five days. On the tenth day, about 2.5 percent of those infected can be infectious; in the case of seven days, according to Prymul, it is about 20 percent infected. So if the quarantine was reduced to seven, or even five days, it would be high risk.
The return of the international flights will be next September 21, as confirmed this Thursday by the Minister of Transportation, Ángela María Orozco, within the framework of the beginning of a new cycle of air connectivity that also involves the start-up of air terminals in intermediate cities.
Even if biosecurity protocols to capitalize on return flights are not definedOrozco pointed out that the Ministry of Health would be publishing them soon. In this sense, the minister announced that the Government will demand as a requirement to enter the country the presentation of a negative PCR test for Covid-19, although the times of its taking are not yet specified.
This requirement is only in force at this time to travel to the island of San Andrés.
It should be noted that PCR tests (polymerase chain reaction) They are those that allow to detect a fragment of genetic material of a pathogen. This test is being used to confirm or rule out cases of patients with Covid-19, but it has also been used to detect other types of infectious diseases.
Additionally, the minister indicated that Additional adjustments are being evaluated in relation to the lines and procedures in Migración Colombia.
Routes. As revealed by the minister, the institution has classified possible countries with air connection into four groups, according to the disposition to materialize the route based on the requirements of the pandemic. In this way, among the countries with the possibility of immediate connection are United States, Brazil, Mexico, United Kingdom, Australia, Ecuador, Dominican Republic and Turkey.
In the next category, the countries with the possibility of connection this month oen October, there are Guatemala, El Salvador, Panama, Peru, Chile, Uruguay and Venezuela.
Spain, France, the Netherlands, Cuba, Canada, Argentina and Germany are in the third group of countries whose air connectivity is linked to special conditions, while the possibilities with Costa Rica or Paraguay are ruled out, for the moment.
First flight. Even if the first gradual phase would begin on September 21e, the first commercial international flights will leave Cartagena on Friday the 19th to Fort Lauderdale and Miami, “Understanding that this is a city that depends on tourist activity,” said the minister. The low-cost airlines, the American Spirit and the Colombian Viva Air, will be in charge of the operation.
“The United States is likely to need a large number of all types of COVID-19 testing through 2021 to contain outbreaks and return to normal activity, and it has a particular need for more screening tests that have very response times. fast, ”the report reads.
Public health experts across the country have said for months that testing will play a critical role in helping prevent the pandemic. Getting enough people tested, and getting your results quickly, will help contact trackers locate Americans exposed to the virus and help control outbreaks.
US buys millions of rapid covid-19 tests 1:07
But Admiral Brett Giroir, the test leader of the Task Force on the Coronavirus of the White House, has repeatedly said that the United States cannot get out of the pandemic just by testing.
Not to be confused. Within the galaxy Porsche, there is the 911 and the one that we have become accustomed to simply calling “the Turbo”. For forty-five years, the latter has not stopped pushing the limits of the conceivable. In the space of eight generations, its flat-six changed planet, going from 260 hp for the first 3-liter version to 680 hp for the latest S variant powered by two variable-geometry turbos. A power which brings it closer to that of the 935 K3 victorious in the Sarthe in 1979. A challenge for a vehicle whose cantilevered engine architecture seemed to condemn it in the long term. Not only have the engineers succeeded in demonstrating that this was not the case, but over time, the Turbo has continued to improve, becoming more and more tame. The hypertrophy of its silhouette – the body widens 45 mm at the front and 20 mm at the rear while the adaptive spoiler increases in surface area – will make some purists squeak more than ever, but it was necessary to go through there to ensure perfect control of the ground connections.
As such, a Turbo has never seemed so easy to drive. This grand touring coupe seems to be stuck on rails. This is even truer with the PASM controlled damping including a sport chassis lowered by 10 mm, at the cost of some discomfort on degraded pavement. Behind the wheel of the Turbo S, what fascinates is its unparalleled consistency, and the extent of its repertoire. The Turbo is able to move through traffic without flinching and in the next instant, catapult you into another dimension with a simple push on the accelerator.
If unsurprisingly, the performances border on excellence, the times are those of a missile: it only takes 1.6 seconds to go from 80 to 120 km / h. From the latest 911 type 992, it inherits the best: the comfort equipment of a sedan and the digital instrumentation resting on a curved tablet. The essential is preserved: in the middle of the two customizable screens sits a huge analog tachometer reminiscent of the first 911. Nostalgia when you hold us!
