The total number of corona virus cases in Brazil has risen above 100,000, making it the ninth country to reach that number.

There is 4,588 new cases and 275 deaths on the last day, according to the Brazilian Ministry of Health.

On Sunday (local time), Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro gave a speech to hundreds of supporters in which he attacked Congress and the courts, underlining the increasing isolation when he underestimated the impact of the coronavirus virus in Latin America’s largest country.

He previously regarded coronavirus as “a little bit flu” and said the economic collapse from quarantine would be more deadly than the virus itself.

Dozens of public figures have signed open letters to the Brazilian Government asking for officials protect the nation’s indigenous peoples, who often live in remote locations with limited access to health services.

The government has banned people from entering the original reserves during the pandemic. However, the state also reduced law enforcement against illegal loggers and miners in remote areas as a security measure.

AlphaBeta’s financial analysis group has found that last week’s weekly Australian spending fell 20 percent from what it was supposed to.

It was led by a decrease in discretionary spending, however important expenses dropped as well.

However, AlphaBeta economist Andrew Charlton said there was an increase in spending early last month, when government stimulus checks arrived in millions of bank accounts.

“You want to act quickly, you want to go straight there. And what we see in our data is that people who receive stimulus spend most of it in two weeks,” he said.

US Secretary of State: ‘China has a history of infecting the world’

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said there was “a large amount of evidence” that coronavirus emerged from a Chinese laboratory.

He also tweeted that China has a “history of infecting the world”, in possible references to the previous SARS virus outbreak.


However, Pompeo said he did not dispute the conclusions of the US intelligence agency that the virus was not man-made.

US President Donald Trump previously speculated that China could issue a corona virus because of some terrible type “error”.

Last week, the Office of the Director of US National Intelligence said it agreed with the “broad scientific consensus” coronavirus is not “man-made or genetically modified”, but said it would continue “thorough checking” whether the outbreak was caused by “an accident in a laboratory in Wuhan”.

The United States is the hardest hit country from this pandemic, with more than 1.1 million cases – almost one third of the global total – and 67,498 deaths.

The Spaniards and Italians are seen enjoying the sun again

The Spaniards had fun on the second day of freedom, outdoor group in the time slot for the age group on the first weekend an adult is allowed out because one of the most stringent corona virus locking in the world was imposed in mid-March.

Although the COVID-19 plague of Spain has enveloped the nation to mourn more than 25,000 killed, there was much needed help on a sunny spring day when people finally returned to the road, the hills and the sea.

To prevent overcrowding, the Barcelona city council entry is prohibited to an urban beach, so thousands of people gather on the beach.

In the capital of Madrid, a park and other large public spaces stay closed, runners and pedestrians share narrow sidewalks and sidewalks.

Relaxation limitation exercises are one of the first steps in a four-phase plan to reopen Spain at the end of June.

Meanwhile, the Italians are counting down to Monday, when parks and public parks will reopen throughout the country for walking, jogging, or cycling.

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has warned that if the rate of transmission begins to increase again, such freedom will be reduced.

Afghanistan’s randomized tests raise fears of widespread undetected infection

One third of the 500 random corona virus tests in the Afghan capital Kabul have returned positive, raising concerns widespread infection that is not detected in one of the most fragile countries in the world.

Afghanistan has only conducted limited tests so far – close to 12,000 – with more than 2,700 confirmed infections, in a country with 36.6 million.

Kabul and most other cities are locked, but compliance has not yet spread. Death toll – officially at 85 – could be much higher.

More than 250,000 Afghans returned from Iran since the beginning of the year, spread throughout their countries without being tested or quarantined. Anecdotal reports have emerged about dozens of people returning to their deaths.

Afghanistan’s health care system, destroyed by four decades of war, is unfortunately not ready for a big outbreak. Only have 400 ventilators.

Testing in Afghanistan is sporadic and some of those infected with it hide their symptoms, partly because of local stigma. In some parts of the country, there were reports that COVID-19 patients were shunned by their neighbors and refused food from the local market.

From the United States to Europe and Asia, easing some of the locking up of coronaviruses brings millions of people out of their homes to enjoy the outdoors, but the global pandemic is still slicing the defenses of other countries.

India on Sunday reported more than 2,600 infections, its biggest one-day jump, and new coronavirus cases in Russia exceed 10,000 for the first time.

A few days after the Prime Minister of Russia declared positive, the country announced 10,633 new infections on Sunday, almost double the new cases reported a week ago.

While in India the number of confirmed cases close to 40,000 as a 1.3 billion nation marks the 40th day of a national lockdown that has screwed lives, and caused millions of people to be unemployed and starve.

Health experts warn that a second wave of infections can hit unless testing is dramatically expanded after locking is reduced.

Global tourism is unlikely to recover until 2023

Tourism Economics, a data and consulting company, estimates global travel demand will not continue its normal steps until 2023.

Airlines fly nearly two-thirds of their aircraft when passengers disappear. Millions of people who depend on tourism lose their jobs.

The UN World Tourism Organization estimates that the arrival of global tourists – or visits from tourists who come to their destinations and stay at least one night – will fall 30 percent this year from a record 1.5 billion in 2019.

In the US alone, an estimated 8 million tourism-related workers are now losing their jobs, accounting for around a third of total unemployment, according to the president and CEO of the US Travel Association, Roger Dow.

In some places, the government has stepped in to help this sector. The French government pays around 80 percent of hotel worker salaries.

Big Macs shipped with dining trolleys, hand sanitizers at entrances and designated waiting areas for separate customers can be a feature of McDonald’s restaurants in the Netherlands when they are allowed to reopen.

In trials at a restaurant in the city of Arnhem, McDonald’s has been looking for ways to do it keep social distance when the coronavirus lockdown is relaxed.

Restaurants, bars and other public places in the Netherlands have been closed since March 15 in the country, which is now 40,769 cases coronavirus and more than 5,000 deaths.

However, new infections have declined, prompting calls to loosen lockdown after the current deadline May 19.

If the store reopens, they must keep customers and staff at least 1.5 meters away to avoid a new wave of infection.

The Tanzanian president said he would send a plane to Madagascar to buy one herbal concoction promoted by the country’s president to treat COVID-19, although there is no evidence that it works to treat the disease.

President John Pombe Magufuli also rejected the test equipment used in the country as a mistake, because he said they had returned positive results on samples taken from goats and pawpaws.

Mr Magufuli, whose government has drawn criticism for keeping a coronavirus outbreak and had previously asked Tanzanian citizens to pray for the corona virus to leave, said the kit had been “technical problem”.

President of the Congo-Brazzaville has also promised to import the drink.

Madagascar’s President Andry Rajoelina has promoted herbal drinks, Covid Organics, on national television said it would do it “change the direction of history”. He claims to have cured two cases of COVID-19 in Madagascar and reduced other symptoms.

He said it was made from artemisia, bitterroot which is used in several malaria drugs. Medical experts criticized the drink, pointing out that no scientific tests were carried out.
