What you need to know about coronavirus on Tuesday, June 2 | Instant News


In Germany, which has been cited as an example of how to reduce a pandemic, a research experiment took samples of wastewater from large urban areas in an effort to find evidence of the virus.

The aim is that almost all waste factories install this coronavirus early warning system to track the spread of Covid-19.

“That will be the first test path,” said microbiologist Hauke ​​Harms, one of the research leaders.

The concept seems simple enough: Waste contains virus remains from human feces. If the concentration suddenly surges, the waste factory will detect it and warn the authorities to take action and begin targeted testing for the area in question.

That’s just one of a network of steps developed to detect long-term outbreaks, Frederik Pleitgen writes.

YOU ASK. WE ANSWER

Q: Should you fly first?

A: Although there is no way to make air travel 100% safe, there are ways to make it safer. One approach to your decision making is to use what occupational health experts call the “control hierarchy.” This approach does two things. First, it focuses on strategies to control exposures that are close to the source. Second, this minimizes how much you have to depend on individual human behavior to control exposure. Of course, the best way to control exposure is to eliminate danger. But, because we can’t eliminate Covid-19, ask yourself if you can eliminate the trip. This is what epidemiologists and scientists say about the decision to fly.

WHAT’S IMPORTANT TODAY

The pandemic will cost US $ 8 trillion until 2030

The impact of the coronavirus pandemic will haunt the US economy for the next decade, wiping out a devastating $ 7.9 trillion growth, according to new projections released by Congressional Budget Office.

Phillip Swagel, director of the CBO, warned that “an unusually high level of uncertainty surrounds this economic projection,” because it is unknown how the pandemic will unfold this year, or how far social distance or other federal aid measures in the future can affect the economy.

Anthony Fauci hasn’t talked to Trump in two weeks

Anthony Fauci, director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and member of the country’s Coronavirus Task Force, said he had not spoken to or met with Donald Trump in two weeks, and that his contact with the President had become far less frequent. But that doesn’t mean the pandemic is under control in America.

Washington, DC, reported a surge in cases, pushing back the city’s schedule to move to the second phase of reopening. Yesterday, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner declared a day of mourning for those who lost their lives because of Covid-19. Eight states, and Washington, DC, held preliminary elections today, in the latest test for elections during the pandemic.

WHO warns of excessive use of antibiotics

The World Health Organization has warned that increased use of antibiotics to combat coronavirus will strengthen bacterial resistance and cause more deaths. The UN health agency said evidence showed that only a small proportion of Covid-19 patients needed antibiotics to treat subsequent bacterial infections.

ICU becomes ‘delirium factory’

Doctors struggle not only to save lives from Covid-19, but also to protect the brains of patients, Liz Szabo, from Kaiser Health News, writes.

Although Covid-19 is famous for damaging the lungs, Covid-19 also increases the risk of life-threatening brain injuries – from mental confusion to hallucinations, seizures, coma, strokes and paralysis. Viruses can attack the brain, or make it lack of oxygen. To fight infections, the immune system sometimes overreacts, destroying the brain and other organs that are usually protected. But the severity of the disease has left doctors and nurses with limited ability to prevent and treat neurological complications.

Rio reopened when cases in Brazil increased

Americans, especially Latin America and the Caribbean, are seeing a rapid increase in new corona virus cases, according to WHO. “Five of the 10 countries in the world that reported the highest number of new cases in the last 24 hours were in America: Brazil, the US, Peru, Chile and Mexico,” Dr. Mike Ryan, executive director of the WHO Health Emergency Program, yesterday.

In Brazil – the country hardest hit after the United States – the number of confirmed corona virus cases doubled in May, according to his health ministry. But when the infection rate increased there, the city of Rio de Janeiro began to reopen several businesses and activities that were not important today, Mayor Marcelo Crivella announced. Crivella said he hoped the city would “return to normal” in early August. However, the famous Copacabana beach in Rio remains closed, Nick Paton Walsh reports.

IN OUR RADAR

  • US Food and Drug Administration will expand the type of company that can make hand sanitizers, even if it means potential exposure to dirt.
  • A quarter of US nursing home has reported at least one coronavirus infection, and one in five has at least one death, according to the first official count.
  • Moderna’s announcement of a positive initial result from a trial of the coronavirus vaccine last month sparked insanity on Wall Street. Now some people are asking for an investigation.
  • Residents in New Delhi, India, can now check the number of beds available in the city hospital at a new mobile application.
  • After more than a month of gradually reducing the locking action, infection continues to decline in Italy. Tomorrow, si the world-famous Uffizi gallery in Florence will be reopened.
  • “I didn’t mean to offend.” A Belgian prince with coronavirus has apologized for violating quarantine and attending a party in Spain.
  • “When you feel confined and closed and imprisoned, if at least you can take off your clothes it is a way to free yourself a little.” That might be one explanation for a rose nudism during lockdown.

TOP TIPS

Stay six feet long and, while you’re there, wear a face mask. We might sound like a broken record, but that is the latest suggestion based on the “most comprehensive study to date,” which found that physical distance and mask use are the two best ways to prevent transmission of the new corona virus.

A review of various published studies, paid for by WHO, has been three main findings:
  • Physical distance: The chance of transmission at a distance of less than 1 meter (3.3 feet) is 12.8%, while it drops to 2.6% at a distance of more than 1 meter (3.3 feet). A distance of 2 meters (6.6 feet) is most effective. Certainty of evidence is “moderate.”
  • Face mask: The chance of transmission without a face mask or respirator (such as an N95 mask) is 17.4%, while it drops to 3.1% when the mask is worn. However, the certainty of the evidence is “low.”
  • Eye protection: The chance of transmission without eye protection is 16%, compared to 5.5% with some form of eye protection as a face shield, protector, eyeglasses or glasses. Once again, the certainty of the evidence is “low.”

PODCAST TODAY

“They are dying because of Covid-19, they are dying because of poverty, they are dying because of police brutality.” – Mayor of Atlanta Keisha Lance Bottoms

In an honest conversation about race, anger and fear about the spread of Covid-19, Bottoms told CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Sanjay Gupta that the black community was sick, tired and dying. Listen now.
