Agreement to provide 200 million vaccines against COVID-19 to the COVAX initiative

Gavi, the Alliance for Vaccines, has signed an agreement with the French pharmaceutical Sanofi and the British GlaxoSmithKline, to provide 200 million doses of vaccines against COVID-19 to the COVAX initiative, coordinated by the World Health Organization.

The signature of the declaration of intent is, according to Gavi, “a critical step to ensure that the vaccine, once approved and licensed, will be available to all countries and economies participating in COVAX.

The initiative, which aims to deliver 2 billion doses of vaccines worldwide by the end of 2021, has already signed agreements this year with AstraZeneca and Novavax.

COVAX intends deter governments from stockpiling COVID-19 vaccines, to vaccinate the highest-risk people around the world first. More than 180 countries have joined the plan.

The Sanofi and Glaxo vaccine uses a technology based on recombinant proteins to be used together with an adjuvant, a substance that acts as a booster for the vaccine. The pharmaceutical companies said in a statement that they expect the results of phase 2 of the clinical trials in December. Then they will launch phase 3 of the trial and if the results are positive they hope to request the approval of the regulators in the first half of 2021.

Tourism in Tunisia.

International tourist arrivals fell 81% in July and 79% in August, the peak season in the northern hemisphere, due to restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The World Tourism Organization estimates that these falls translate into losses of 730,000 million dollars, an amount that is eight times that experienced in 2009 during the global financial and economic crisis.

The UNWTO foresees a global fall close to 70% for the whole of 2020.

“This unprecedented decline is having dramatic social and economic consequences, putting millions of jobs and businesses at risk,” warned UNWTO Secretary General Zurab Pololikashvili who underlined the “urgent need” to “resume safely” and in a coordinated way the tourist activity.

In the first eight months of the year, international tourist arrivals in the Americas have fallen by 65%.

The UNWTO Group of Experts foresees a rebound in international tourism in the third quarter of 2021. However, some experts suggest that the rebound would not come until 2022.

UN experts criticize the ruling in Poland that “slammed the door” on legal abortions

Countries where women have the right to terminate an unwanted pregnancy and to all contraceptive methods have the lowest abortion rates.

A group of UN human rights experts has criticized the Polish court ruling banning abortions for serious or fatal fetal anomalies, “slamming the door” on safe and legal terminations of pregnancy.

Throughout the country, thousands of people have taken to the streets after hearing last Thursday the decision of the Constitutional Court that toughens what was already one of the most restrictive abortion laws in Europe.

It is estimated that the 98% of all legal abortions that are practiced in Poland are for serious and irreversible abnormalities of the fetus.

“Poland has decided to sacrifice the right of women to services to end a pregnancy safely and legally, to protect the right to life of the unborn, violating its international human rights obligations,” say experts who consider that the sentence will have “devastating consequences for women and adolescent girls“, Especially for those with a worse socioeconomic position and for undocumented migrants, who do not have the means to go abroad to have an abortion.”

A UN expert denounces the “inappropriate, discriminatory and indifferent” handling of mass graves scattered around the world and asks governments to ensure that they are included in the peace and transitional justice processes

Agnes Callamard, the Special Rapporteur on Extrajudicial Executions, calls for steps to be taken to ensure that present and future generations “never forget the horrible crimes that led to these mass graves and that this violence should never be allowed to repeat ”.

In her report, the rapporteur quotes Mexico, where between 2006 and 2016 an independent investigation discovered 1978 graves with victims of the war on drugs. In Spain, at least 2000 mass graves linked to the Civil War have been located, but many more remain unidentified.

In addition, Callamard warns that during the pandemic there is an “explosion of mass burials” in some cases in “mass graves”, in cities such as Manaus, in Brazil, or New York, in the United States.

“As has unequivocally stated the General secretary, we strongly condemn all attacks against populated areas affected by the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh, ”said UN spokesman Stéphane Dujarric on Tuesday.

During his daily meeting with the media, the spokesperson included among those attacks the attacks against the city of Barda in which many people were reportedly killed and injured, as well as the ongoing shelling of Stepanakert-Khankendi and other localities in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone.

There is no justification for these attacks ”, continued Dujarric, who reiterated once again the call of the Secretary General to the parties to immediately implement a ceasefire for humanitarian reasons “that the parties have committed to respect”, as they fully comply with their obligations to preserve and protect to civilians and civil infrastructure.

The ongoing hostilities are unacceptable and must cease immediately ”, sentenced.

He added that as clear examples of the humanitarian repercussions of this ongoing conflict and based on figures from UNICEF, in a month of fighting more than 130,000 people were displaced, 76 schools and kindergartens have been damaged and a maternity hospital was bombed. In addition, untold numbers of children suffer the psychological consequences of daily exposure to rocket and missile attacks in civilian areas.

Traders start the first riots in Europe

The first wave connected two dots: health and economy. A directly proportional relationship. The second incorporates a third angle, the social unrest. We will soon see the triangle installed here. Fear still dominates anger. But when we remove the anesthesia from the ERTEs, despair will grow. Will trigger. Throughout the last few weeks, protests have grown in Europe and the police response has also intensified. Social revolts. Agitators. Urban guerrilla. Extremists who parasitize the pain of others. Generators of chaos for television consumption. Violence for ‘prime time’. Can it happen in Spain? No one should rule it out. Where could it happen? Three sources of social protest stand out in the history of our country: Madrid, Barcelona and Andalusia. We will see.

Urban guerrilla throughout Italy. Violent outbreaks during the last week: Naples, Rome, Turin. Mobilizations in Milan, Sicily and more cities. Protests by the impact on the catering sector. ‘La Reppubblica’ tells us that the first night of the curfew has marked a before and after in Naples since the pandemic began. They talk about urban guerrilla. “Hundreds of protesters in the street. Among them, desperate merchants, Neapolitans forced to close small and medium-sized businesses. But also, on the front line, different members of the street fight. From the extreme left and the extreme right ”. Hard pictures. Attacks on the police and journalists, police charges, two detainees.

Statements by the President of the Chamber, Roberto Fico: “They were scenarios of unprecedented violence that must be firmly condemned. They have not been the expression of dissent, nor the expression of the discomfort of businessmen and workers facing difficult times, but a criminal guerrilla ”.

En the Roman Piazza del Popolo, camp battle promoted by neo-fascists and ‘hooligans’ from Lazio. “More mobilizations are planned. This Thursday, the waiters will empty the expired beer at Montesacro, on Friday at Ponte Milvio, on Saturday at Campo Di Fiori. And for the 5th, Fuorza Nouva has summoned in ‘piazzale’ Clodio ”.

Berlin Germany is coming living since the end of August social mobilizations. An alphabet soup with anti-vaccines, conspiracy, right-wing extremists, ‘hippies’ … everything. One of the protests ended with a forceful police action. The security forces are now aware of the impact that images of charges and arrests can have. That explains what happened in the protest last Sunday.

‘Der Spiegel’ informs us about a prohibited demonstration attended by some 2,000 people. Alexanderplatz. They did not respect social distance. They were not wearing masks. But they respected the route and the schedule agreed with the police. At four in the afternoon, the officers took the stage and informed the participants that they must leave the scene quickly, or they would have to intervene. This time, there were no major problems.

London. BBC, last Sunday. “18 arrested at a protest in central London over coronavirus restrictions. Unrest on Westminster Bridge. Large crowds gathered in front of Buckingham Palace, where the police were stationed, before moving on to Trafalgar Square. ” In London, as in Berlin, the heterogeneous movement leads manifesting regularly for weeks.

General picture. “The pandemic opens an era of protests —And restrictions on protests— “. ‘Washington Post’, text of October 3. “The coronavirus is spreading protest actions. But sanitary rules affect how people can express themselves around the world. In recent weeks, the rates of new cases have been increasing, which is leading governments to renew restrictions, although few countries have returned to strict spring closures and localized measures are being chosen ”.

Symptoms of the coronavirus: covid-19 could have serious effects on the brain – Science – Life


Covid-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus, is known to have profound effects on organs such as the lungs, stomach and eyes. However, the effects it causes in the brain are beginning to attract more and more the attention of scientists.

Several studies that are currently being carried out are on the trail of the incidence that the virus has in our neurons.

(You may be interested: Is a new quarantine possible in Colombia?).

But there is still a long way to go, well, Because it is a new condition, it is difficult to determine what its long- and medium-term consequences may be.

A study carried out by Imperial College London collected evidence in about 84,285 patients who had contracted the coronavirus.

(We recommend: Chinese doctor reappeared whose skin was darkened by covid).

According to the results, these people developed “significant cognitive deficits according to age, gender, level of education, income, racial-ethnic group and pre-existing medical disorders,” the research noted.

Among other findings, the scientists highlighted that there are cognitive problems that could persist in the recovery phase of those infected. And even It was found that there was a 10-year reduction in performance among the subgroup of people aged 20 to 70 who reported being connected to a ventilator during their hospitalization.

The scientists highlighted that there are cognitive problems that could persist in the recovery phase of the infected

In addition, the text warned that the results found served to give a warning to the scientific community, as it is necessary to investigate in greater depth what the effects of the coronavirus are in people who survived the infection.

However, in an article published by the agency ‘Reuters’, on October 27, testimonies are collected from other researchers who question the validity of the study.

“The cognitive ability of the participants had not been known before they developed COVID-19 and the results do not reveal what long-term recovery looks like,” Joanna Wardlaw, professor of applied neuroimaging at the University of Edinburgh, told the agency. .

(Read on: Antibodies that are generated by Sars-CoV-2 would drop ‘very quickly’).

Similarly, another expert cited in the article, Derek Hill, a professor at University College London, noted the same problem and noted that Many of the people whose data was used for the study did not have a positive COVID-19 test, but instead reported as ill due to symptoms.

Trump maintains campaign strategy as COVID-19 resurfaces in the US

By Jeff Mason and Ernest Scheyder

LAS VEGAS / WILMINGTON, Oct 28 (Reuters) – With less than a week to go before the vote, President Donald Trump was pushing ahead Wednesday with massive demonstrations despite the surge in COVID-19 cases in the United States and mounting criticism. that he is prioritizing his re-election over the health of his supporters.

The pandemic that has disrupted the lives of the United States this year and killed more than 227,000 people is re-emerging in the days leading up to the Nov. 3 contest, when Republican Trump faces off against Democratic hopeful Joe Biden. .

Biden has a comfortable lead in national polls, which also show a public increasingly baffled by Trump’s handling of America’s biggest public health crisis in remembrance. Polls in the contested states, which could decide the election, show narrower results.

The former vice president will meet with public health experts and deliver a speech near his home in Delaware on his plans to fight COVID-19 and protect Americans with pre-existing health conditions.

As infection rates soar, Trump again accused the media of promoting the story to harm him.

“COVID, COVID, COVID is the unified chant of the bogus, boring media. They won’t talk about anything else until November 4, when the elections end (hopefully!),” The president wrote on Twitter Wednesday.

Trump’s running mate, Vice President Mike Pence, will campaign Wednesday in Wisconsin, where a record number of coronavirus cases has prompted the Democratic governor to urge people to stay home.

Wisconsin broke state records for cases and deaths in one day on Tuesday. State officials have asked residents to self-quarantine themselves when possible, wear masks and cancel social gatherings with more than five people.

“There is no way to soften it – we are facing an urgent crisis and there is an imminent risk to you, your family, your friends, your neighbors and the people you care about,” Governor Tony Evers said.

The Trump campaign is taking all necessary precautions at the event in Mosinee, campaign spokesman Hogan Gidley told CNN.

Reuters / Ipsos polls from October 20-26 show Biden with a solid lead over Trump, 53-44%, in Wisconsin, a state that could help decide the election.

After going to Michigan, Wisconsin and Nebraska on Tuesday and spending the night in Las Vegas, Trump was to hold rallies at the Bullhead City airports in Arizona, and in Goodyear, outside of Phoenix, the largest city in the same. state.

DISD will receive 15,000 rapid tests for covid-19

The Dallas Independent School District as of this Wednesday is part of the rapid testing program for covid-19, created by Governor Greg Abbott, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and the Texas Division of Emergency Management.

In a first stage, Dallas ISD will receive 15,000 state tests that will be used with students participating in athletic activities.

“We have detected several cases of students with covid-19 in sports teams because they are the ones with the most contact,” said Sebastián Saucedo, spokesman for the school district. “They are basically high school students.”

Football tournaments at Thomas Jefferson High School had to be canceled two weeks ago, he said.

Each week the athletes will be tested again, before that the schools will send circulars to the parents. The test is voluntary, but the intention is for everyone to participate for the health of all.

The district wants to detect the highest case of students infected with the coronavirus and who are asymptomatic, young athletes can be rapid carriers due to the close contact they have with others while playing.

“That will allow us to react better and have a safer environment,” Saucedo said.

A second phase of rapid testing could be extended to the rest of the students in the other schools in the district in two or three weeks, the plan is to do it before Thursday, November 26, Thanksgiving Day.

Rapid antigen tests will be administered to students, teachers, and staff who choose to participate. Schools enrolled in the program will also receive personal protective equipment (PPE) to safely handle the kits, says a district statement released this month.

Germany and France Announce New Anti-COVID Restrictions | United States

BERLIN (AP) – Germany announced a four-week partial lockdown on Wednesday and France a nationwide shutdown as European governments seek to stem a sharp spike in coronavirus cases on the continent.

The World Health Organization said the European region – which includes Russia, Turkey, Israel and Central Asia by its definition – accounted for nearly half of the 2.8 million new coronavirus cases reported globally last week.

The WHO added that deaths related to the virus were also increasing in Europe, with an increase of around 35% from the previous week, as well as hospitalizations due to COVID-19.

German authorities agreed to a four-week closure of restaurants, bars, cinemas, theaters and other leisure facilities.

Chancellor Angela Merkel and the country’s 16 governors, responsible for imposing and easing the restrictions, agreed to the partial closure in a video conference. It is scheduled to take effect on Monday and last until the end of November.

“It is completely clear that we must act and act now, to avoid an acute national emergency,” Chancellor Angela Merkel told reporters in Berlin.

Restaurants will still be able to serve take out, and stores and schools will remain open.

On Tuesday, Germany reached a record 14,964 new confirmed cases of coronavirus, bringing the national total for the pandemic to 449,275 infections.

In France, more than half of the country’s intensive care units are already occupied by COVID-19 patients. Military and commercial aircraft are transporting critically ill patients to other regions as hospitals fill up.

On Wednesday, President Emmanuel Macron announced a second national shutdown starting Friday, but said schools would remain open.

France reported 288 virus-related deaths in hospitals and 235 in nursing homes on Tuesday over the past four days; in both cases the largest increase since May.

“France has been overtaken by a second wave,” Macron said in a nationally televised speech on Wednesday.

“Nothing is more important than human life,” he added, noting that the country has one of the highest rates of coronavirus in Europe today.

“We have between 40,000 and 50,000 new contaminations identified each day,” he said.

Overall, Europe has seen more than 250,000 virus-related deaths since the outbreak began, according to a tally by Johns Hopkins University.

Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain, Great Britain and the Czech Republic have also seen an increase in new cases during the last 14 days.

Although Germany has suffered less than many of its neighboring countries, the authorities warn that it is beginning to lose control of the situation.

Economists said restrictions need to be carefully calibrated to prevent companies from taking a second hit.

“A national quarantine, as we have seen, wreaks havoc on an economy and would significantly complicate the ongoing economic recovery,” said analyst Fiona Cincotta of finance company GAIN Capital.

But Thomas Gitzel, chief economist at the VP Bank Group in Liechstenstein, said a temporary quarantine would be less damaging than a prolonged drop in consumer spending as long as high levels of transmission persist.

Spanish vaccine against Covid, with approval for trial | International

The RUTI vaccine against Covid-19, developed by a researcher at the Germans Trias i Pujol Hospital, in Catalonia (Spain), and manufactured by the Archivel Farma pharmaceutical company, it is the first Spanish to receive authorization to carry out an international clinical trial, which will be carried out in Argentina.

(The coronavirus vaccine that generates immunity in older adults).

As reported by the company, the vaccine, Initially designed against tuberculosis, it is also expected to be effective against other viral infections such as coronavirus, which is why it has received approval from the National Administration of Medicines, Food and Medical Technology (ANMAT) of Argentina to carry out a clinical trial.

This is a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, lasting nine months, to evaluate the efficacy of the RUTI vaccine in preventing infection and reducing mortality from SARS-CoV-2 in healthcare personnel.

(The vitamin that coronavirus patients lack.)

The vaccine has been developed by Dr. Pere-Joan Cardona, from the Can Ruti Microbiology Service, and It is based on the so-called “trained innate immunity”, that is, on stimulating the body’s immunity through the vaccine and “equipping it with memory” to generate a better and faster response to virus exposure.

To be effective, RUTI could become the basis for broad spectrum antiviral vaccines thanks to its alternative mechanism to the generation of antibodies produced by classical vaccination.

(Immunity against coronavirus decreases very rapidly).

In fact, this new therapeutic option could also be used as a first resort in case of epidemics caused by new viruses or in pandemic virus mutations that make existing vaccines lose their initial efficacy.

It could also be applied as a booster in populations that do not respond effectively to specific vaccines or as a complement to vaccines that generate antibodies, for example those developed specifically for Covid-19.

“The concept of trained immunity appears as an interesting and innovative alternative to explore as a prevention strategy, initially on health personnel”, explained the doctor leading the study in Argentina, Waldo Belloso, who has admitted that “obtaining of specific vaccines of sufficient efficacy and available for widespread use will take time. ”

After receiving the endorsement of the Argentine authorities, The RUTI Immune company, created by Archivel Farma to produce the vaccine, has already started the logistical procedures so that the doses reach the South American country and can begin to be administered in 369 employees of various health centers.

In Spain, according to the company, the vaccine could also soon be tested in a very similar clinical trial by the Institut Germans Trias i Pujol (IGTP).
