England reduced Covid-19 cases by a third during the second lockdown: Study | THE IMPARTIAL

UNITED KINGDOM.- Coronavirus infections fell by almost a third in England during the second national lockdown, research results; declining infections in the northeast and northwest, where cases fell by more than half, have helped drive the change, according to the latest findings from the React study from Imperial College London.

They also decreased in Yorkshire and the Humber, but prevalence remained high in the East Midlands and West Midlands; Overall, there was a 30% drop in coronavirus cases across the country for nearly fifteen days.

The study of more than 105,000 volunteers estimates that 1 in 100 people in England had the virus between November 13 and 24, a dramatic drop from the 1 in 80 reported on November 2; Regarding previous studies, the cases doubled every nine days, while now they are reduced by half.

Professor Paul Elliott, director of the Imperial program, mentioned that the tiered system and subsequent lockdown had helped reduce the cases, which represents a boost for Boris Johnson, who faces a rebellion from his own MPs as the Commons they are ready to vote on their new stricter tiered system next Tuesday.

These trends suggest that the tiered approach helped slow infections in these areas and that the blockade has added to this effect; He added, that as we approach a challenging time of year, it is even more vital that through our actions and behaviors we all play our part to help keep the virus at bay, Professor Elliott said.

He added that the data offered “encouraging signs”, especially since the worst affected regions are registering declines in cases.

Weak demand will derail Britain’s recovery

This has been an exceptional year. Last week’s spending review showed how extraordinary it was for the UK. As noted by Chancellor Rishi Sunat, the Office of Budget Responsibility (OBR), “predicts that the economy is going to contract this year by 11.3 percent, the largest drop in production at more than 300. years”. What the government says and does in times like these shows us a lot about its character and capabilities, as well as the options facing the country.

Regarding its character, the revealing decision was to cut the aid budget by 0.2 percent of gross domestic product (GDP). Being just over 1 percent of net public debt this year and 0.4 percent of spending, the money saved is irrelevant. The decision violated an overt commitment. Above all, according to the World Bank “it is estimated that the covid-19 pandemic will push between 88 to 115 million more people into extreme poverty this year.” So this is a telling argument of ostentatious pettiness.

Equally revealing are the costs of the Brexi. The OBR says productivity will be 4 percent lower in the long run than it would be if the UK remained in the European Union. The Bank of England argues that disruption in the short term will cut GDP by around 1 percent in the first quarter of 2021. A Brexi Without an agreement, it can, according to the OBR, reduce GDP by 2 percent more in 2021. In the long term, it estimates, GDP may be 2 percent lower than with a trade pact. I pity companies that have to make plans amidst this kind of uncertainty about the Brexi and the pandemic.

And what about the capacity? The pandemic is a global disaster, but where does the UK rank relative to its peers in the group of leading G7 economies (plus Spain)? According to consensus forecasts, this year it will have the largest fiscal deficit, with 18.4 percent of GDP; the second largest drop, of 11 percent (behind Spain), and the third highest mortality rate, behind Spain and Italy. Many things have gone very wrong.

Lastly, what about future options? On this, the OBR is sober, it offers an optimistic scenario in which production returns to the pre-crisis GDP level at the end of next year, a central scenario in which the economy recovers to its pre-virus levels at the end 2022, a pessimistic scenario in which it returns to pre-pandemic levels until 2024. In the optimistic scenario, production returns to its pre-virus trajectory, but production remains permanently below the pre-covid trajectory in the other two scenarios , by 3 and 6 percentage points, each. All three scenarios assume a smooth transition to a free trade agreement with the European Union in January. Otherwise, the results will be even worse.

So the UK is likely to take a second permanent hit to its output and income in less than 15 years, but the scale of the hit is not certain. It depends on how well the virus is managed and, above all, on the success of the vaccination program. It also depends on other policies (including the outcome of the Brexi) that determine the magnitude of the long-term blow.

The OBR examines many strong reasons to fear injury: lower investment, destruction of company-specific capital and knowledge, loss of human skills as a result of unemployment and restructuring, early retirement, and loss of working hours as a result of greater future caution about diseases. Hopefully this year’s extraordinary fiscal support will reduce those wounds, but some of them seem certain.

The policy most likely to increase the long-term wounds and thus push the economy into one of the OBR’s bad scenarios is to let the economy languish under weak demand. After the pandemic, many special programs will end, but tightening fiscal policy too quickly will be a big mistake, especially when monetary policy can hardly be further relaxed and long-term government borrowing costs are so low.

The old fiscal rules, in particular the fixation on the deficit and the ratio of public debt to GDP, were a mistake. Now they are quite grotesque. Instead, governments should focus on their long-term balance sheets, the maturity of their debt, their borrowing costs, the relationship between these costs and the return on investments, and the strength of demand. As long as they have their own currency and a competent central bank, these things alone matter.

Over time it will become clear how great the long-term fiscal costs of the pandemic will be and whether interest rates will remain this low. So, fiscal consolidation may be necessary. To prepare, the government must consider the best way to raise taxes and, if necessary, cut spending. You must also be aware of the long-term costs of an aging population, but at this point you must focus on supporting a strong recovery. A government is not a private home; you must stop thinking as if it were.

Starts “significant week”

Britain and the European Union enter a “very significant” week, British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab said yesterday, as talks on a trade deal reach their final days with serious differences, such as competition policy and the distribution of fishing rights. “We have to get a deal in the next week or maybe a couple more days,” Raab told Times Radio.

Agreement “still possible”

The head of the British negotiating team, David Frost, said that “it is still possible” to reach an agreement posbrexit with the European Union despite the short time and the differences that persist in key points. “It is late, but an agreement is still possible,” he wrote on Twitter, stating that it is necessary to “respect the sovereignty of the United Kingdom.”

Europe ready alliance with the US

The European Union seeks to forge a new alliance with the United States to bury the tensions of the Trump era and meet the challenges posed by China. The initiative proposes to rebuild ties on common fronts ranging from digital regulation to tackling the pandemic. Financial Times. The proposal will be submitted to national leaders for approval at a meeting on December 10-11.

Saving Christmas from the pandemic

We said goodbye to my mother on Christmas Eve 1996. She had passed away in early December after a long and painful illness, but when the end came, it was sudden. It must not have been easy to organize a funeral on Christmas Eve, but somehow my father managed it; the children’s socks were also filled. I think I speak with some knowledge of what does and does not spoil Christmas.

So it has been disconcerting to see speculation in the press about whether Boris Johnson will “save Christmas”, as if he were an overpromoted elf from a Christmas season movie. (It is certainly a role for which he is better qualified than that of Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.)

Apparently, it is thought that if the country remains in lockdown at the end of December, Christmas is ruined. If the lockdown is lifted, as can be expected, in early December, Christmas will be saved. Given how desperate Johnson is to be loved, my bet goes to the latter scenario.

What makes this so absurd is that in the grand scheme of things, Christmas doesn’t matter. Don’t get me wrong: I love Christmas. But when it comes to reuniting with my family, I’d rather not risk giving everyone the unintended gift of Covid-19.

Regarding the economy, the Christmas boom is less than you might think. Joel Waldfogel, author of Scroogenomics, estimates that for every £ 100 we spend in a typical UK year, just over 50p is part of the December Christmas boom.

Of course, some retailers and restaurants are going to be hit hard if lockdown regulations prevent Christmas spending. But we must be honest about the situation: large sectors of the economy have already been devastated, and that would be true with or without legal restrictions. Few people want to attend pantomimes in a pandemic.

Covid-19 is a public health disaster; lockdowns are an extremely tough and expensive answer. Both facts are true. There are arguments both for and against lockdowns, and if a shutdown hits Christmas or Valentine’s Day, it is hardly relevant.

Let’s consider what makes Christmas fun: presents, banquets, carols, family and friends gatherings, and little ones with their eyes shining. Christmas carols are going to have to be sung outdoors this year, with or without confinement, it turns out that covid-19 is not sentimental in that sense. Anyway, some of the gifts and banquets are going to take place within the family bubbles. Other holidays can be postponed until it is safe. As for the children, I predict that Santa Claus will bring presents no matter what.

No, the reason Christmas is politically imposed is not that it presents a unique opportunity to enjoy, but rather that it presents a unique opportunity for all of us to do it at the same time. “All” is an exaggeration; I am aware that some people do not enjoy Christmas, others celebrate Diwali or Hanukkah or Eid, and others celebrate Christmas on January 7th. However, it is a collective celebration.

Christmas, in fact, produces one of the few massive outbursts of happiness large enough to be seen through sentiment analysis on Twitter. At hedonometer.org, a team of academics traces positive and negative emotions around the world, measuring the words used in tweets. Christmas Day is regularly highlighted. That’s partly because researchers code the word “Christmas” as happy.

We must not jump to the wrong conclusion that Christmas is a time of unequaled joy. Instead, the point is that at Christmas, the joy is collective, or at least simultaneous.

If you are over nine years old, Christmas Day is unlikely to be your best day of the year. But it has a good chance of being in the top ten. That is why the newspapers pay attention to it; that’s why the government is desperate not to “ruin” Christmas.

It is perfectly possible to enjoy many of the joys of Christmas — feasting, family, and fun — at any time of year. But this time we may not do it simultaneously, and can you imagine what the headlines are going to be if we don’t? Each of us should think about what we really value about Christmas and how to maintain those values ​​regardless of the circumstances. There will be other Christmases.

Of course, for some people that is not true. Some people will not see another Christmas and may be desperate to see and hug their families one last time. Others are isolated in nursing homes, unable to see friends.

But let’s take Christmas out of that debate. The isolation of people in nursing homes is intolerable. So is exposing everyone in a home to high risk of a Covid-19 outbreak. This is another of the painful decisions we are making as a society. I am not sure if we are doing well. But I’m sure of one thing: for this dilemma, Christmas is a sideshow.

Cuomo Expected to Announce New Plan to Curb COVID-19; while Murphy asks to flatten the curve again – Telemundo New York (47)

NEW YORK – New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said during a conference call on Sunday that while he’s reporting fewer COVID-19 cases in the past two days, that doesn’t mean that cases have dropped, but rather that the number of people who have been tested decreased.

His words come after reporting 6,723 new cases of COVID-19 on Sunday compared to the 8,176 he had reported on Friday. “What really counts is the percentage,” he said. The positivity rate in the focus areas under New York’s Hotspots strategy is 5.83% and the statewide rate, excluding these focus areas, is 3.75%. The rate in New York in general is 4.27%. On the other hand, he said that 55 people lost their lives from the disease and 3,372 were hospitalized.

“If you look at New York versus the other states, New York is doing very well. However, if you look at New York in relation only to New York, you see that the numbers increase, not as fast as in other states, but the numbers are going up, “said the governor, clarifying that, although the state is better than others in the country that may be “irrelevant” as New York has to focus on its own problems.

On the other hand, the governor emphasized what the leading expert on infectious diseases in the United States, Dr. Anthony Fauci, said on Sunday, warning that the country could see a “rebound on the rebound” of the coronavirus in the coming weeks.

“It’s interesting how the language develops through this COVID-19 situation,” said Cuomo, referring to what Fauci said and how the holiday season, which began with Thanksgiving and would last until night. New Year’s Eve could bring an increase in cases after about 10 days of this time. “Hopefully, social activity will drop at that point and the infection rate can begin to stabilize so that then a vaccine arrives, which is the answer,” he said.

Because of this, the governor said that starting Monday he will release more details about a plan for the next phase of COVID-19 after conversations with health officials and local governments. Meanwhile, he asks New Yorkers to continue to comply with biosafety measures such as the use of masks and physical distancing.

On the other hand, in New Jersey, Gov. Phil Murphy announced Sunday that 3,851 people tested positive for COVID-19, bringing the total in the state to 334,114 so far. In addition, it confirmed that 13 people lost their lives, a total of 15,149 deaths since the pandemic began.

The governor asks residents to re-flatten the curve as they once did in the spring. “Let’s take this pandemic seriously and flatten the curve like we did last spring,” he said.

The United States reached 13 million diagnosed COVID -19 cases on Friday, another milestone in a month. It was the fourth marker of its kind that the country has counted in November, which has seen 3.8 million cases of the coronavirus. The United States is on track to record more than 4 million cases this month alone, more than double the previous record of 1.9 million cases set in October.

Yes, you can get COVID twice. Don’t be alarmed, say San Diego scientists

Data from San Diego County suggests that few residents have acquired COVID-19 twice so far, echoing the findings of researchers around the world.

The Union-Tribune asked the San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency the number of people who have tested positive for coronavirus twice, with their second test at least three months after their first. That limit is based on a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that says that an infected person can spread the virus for up to three months after showing the first symptoms …

“Fewer than 10” from Sandieguinos met those criteria, according to communications officer Sarah Sweeney.

That’s a small fraction of the more than 70,000 people who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the region. And Sweeney cautions that the county is not sure these are genuine cases of reinfection and not tests that pick up the remains of a person’s first infection.

To find out, the researchers would have to sequence viral samples from both tests and compare them. Clear genetic differences between the samples would be a strong sign that someone was infected twice.

That’s what scientists did to identify the first confirmed case of COVID-19 reinfection – a man living in Hong Kong who tested positive for the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) in late March and back to mid-August.

UC San Diego infectious disease expert Chip Schooley is the editor of the journal of Clinical Infectious Diseases, where the study was published. He says it is not surprising that researchers are finding cases of COVID-19 reinfection.

“We knew this would be the case,” Schooley said. “Other coronaviruses had the same experience: You develop immunity during an infection attack, the immunity decreases and then the virus reappears and you become infected. And that is what is happening with this coronavirus as well ”.

Local researchers say that’s not necessarily a cause for concern.

Notably, the first person with a confirmed COVID-19 reinfection had mild symptoms during their first attack of the disease and no symptoms the second time.

That is reminiscent of a 1990 UK study in which volunteers were deliberately exposed to a coronavirus that causes the common cold. Most of the participants who were exposed twice were still infected again, but did not develop symptoms or spread the virus for as long as they did the first time – which presumably means they were less infectious.

“We don’t know if that can be extrapolated to SARS-CoV-2, but it would be a good scenario,” said Alessandro Sette, a La Jolla immunology researcher.

Sette and her colleagues recently looked at the immune responses of 185 people who recovered from COVID-19. Their study, which has not yet been peer-reviewed, showed that most of these people’s immune responses were still detectable six to eight months after they got sick.

“We don’t see any ‘red flags,'” Sette said. “From what we see, it is not difficult to imagine that the answer could last for years.”

The findings dovetail with those of a study that tracked more than 12,000 UK healthcare workers from April to November. Workers with antibodies to the coronavirus, a sign that they had had COVID-19 before, were less likely to become infected than those who had never been exposed before.

That suggests that antibodies, immune proteins that cling to the surface of a virus and can prevent it from entering its cells, could reduce the likelihood and severity of reinfection. But not all antibodies block infection, and there is evidence that T cells, which kill infected cells before they can spread the virus, also play a key role in fighting the coronavirus.

Only time will tell how long immune responses to COVID-19 last, whether due to a natural infection or a vaccine. Pfizer and Moderna recently reported that their vaccines are about 95 percent effective in preventing COVID-19, while AstraZeneca announced that their vaccine was about 70 percent overall effective.

An ideal vaccine would reduce the risk of reinfection for years, even decades. It would also limit your symptoms and make you less contagious if you got infected. But Sette says it’s too early to know how well the COVID-19 vaccine would do any of those things, and for how long, although current signs are encouraging.

“The prudent and responsible thing is to keep complying, wear the mask and practice social distancing,” Sette said.

Another reason not to throw caution to the wind after recovering from COVID-19: Most people have not been exposed to the virus yet. So even if a second exposure doesn’t make you sick, you could spread the virus to someone who is more vulnerable because they don’t have immunity.

Right now, there is a lot of viral spread out there.

“As for today’s most pressing issues, it may not be so much reinfection as infections,” Sette said. “But they clearly exist.”

The strategy against the pandemic in England will end on February 3

The new system of restrictions against the pandemic that the British Government wants to introduce in England next week It will end on February 3, as Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said, in order to prevent a rebellion of Tory deputies opposed to the plan in the Commons.

Around 80 Conservative MPs currently reject the controversial plan that will subject the different areas of the country to rules of three levels of risk – medium, high and very high – according to the incidence of the coronavirus.

That strategy would start working from the next Wednesday, when the current almost total confinement of four weeks ends – started on November 5 – although it must be previously voted in Parliament this Tuesday.

In order to alleviate the outrage of their own deputies, many of whom question the effectiveness of the system and fear that areas of low incidence of the virus will have to adjust to higher standards Than those applied in confinement, Johnson has written to those “rebels” giving the plan an “expiration date” of February 3.

In that letter, which the local media collect today, the “premier” also points out that the rules could relax this december and that it would be voted on again in January 2021.

Easter: a possibility of return

In another separate article published this Sunday in Mail on Sunday, the conservative leader affirms that he believes that next Easter there will be “a real possibility of returning to something like normality. “

It warns, however, that there would be “disastrous consequences” for the public health system (NHS) if the government does not introduce this new three-tier system of restrictions when the lockdown ends.

99% of England will have to conform to the two more severe levels of standards -high and very high risk-, with strong restrictions in the hospitality sector.

In areas with the maximum level -like Manchester- indoor and outdoor social gatherings will continue to be prohibited and bars that do not serve take-out will remain closed.

At intermediate level, where London and Liverpool appear, indoor meetings of different households are prohibited; A maximum of six people will be kept for outdoor meetings and the closing time of pubs and restaurants – now closed except for home delivery – is set at 23.00 GMT.

The establishments may only serve alcoholic beverages if they are accompanied by a “substantial meal” and return will be allowed. “limited” viewers to sports stadiums and live shows, while non-essential venues such as hair salons may also reopen.

The German state has paid about 10,000 million more than necessary in aid to companies affected by the restrictions in the pandemic, according to the Sunday newspaper of the newspaper ‘Die Welt’, which cites calculations by the German Institute of Economics (IW) according to which the Compensations are not realistic with respect to what is actually lost, since the costs that would have to remain open are not adequately considered.

Compensation to companies, which includes up to 75% of losses compared to what was billed in November of last year, sometimes end up being higher than what would actually have been generated, according to those calculations. This situation is especially evident in gastronomy, a sector that has been paralyzed since November 2 and for which a reopening throughout the country is not expected until well into January.

The number of fatalities with or from COVID-19 throughout the pandemic in Germany exceeded the 16,000 mark, although a continued slowdown in new infections is observed. Verifications of new cases at the weekend are always somewhat lower, since not all departments update their data. But a slowdown appears to be confirmed in terms of new infections.

According to data released this Sunday by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), competent in the matter in the country, in the last 24 hours 14,611 new infections and 158 deaths were reported. The previous Sunday the number of new cases in one day was 15,741 and the number of fatalities stood at 138. Since the beginning of the pandemic, 1,042,700 cases have been verified in the country -of which 722,300 are recovered patients- and 16,123 died with or from COVID-19.
