7:43 a.m.: Dutch officials say mink may have infected a person with COVID-19

Dutch researchers believe that a person may have contracted a new mink coronavirus on a farm in the Netherlands.

New findings from studies currently being conducted on mink farms in the country also show that animals can have COVID-19 without any symptoms, a Dutch government press release said.

Researchers also believe that cats can play a role in spreading the virus to mink farms. Antibodies to coronavirus were found in three of 11 cats in one of the studied mink farms. Pending further research, the Dutch government recommends that owners of mink farms ensure that cats cannot enter or leave the site.

6:24 утра: глава ООН предупреждает, что пандемия коронавируса угрожает прогрессу Африки

Генеральный секретарь ООН Антонио Гутерриш предупредил в среду, что пандемия коронавируса угрожает прогрессу АфрикиНесмотря на то, что обширный континент, похоже, до сих пор относительно свободен от бедствия вируса.

Было зарегистрировано менее 3000 случаев смерти от COVID-19 из примерно 88 000 случаев заболевания, зарегистрированных по всей Африке. Отчасти это может быть связано с тем, что многие страны по всему континенту предприняли быстрые действия по принятию превентивных мер, чтобы остановить распространение вируса.

«На сегодняшний день количество зарегистрированных случаев ниже, чем опасалось», – сказал Гутерриш в видеообращении в среду, предупреждая, что «многое зависит от баланса» и пандемия »усугубит давнее неравенство и усилит голод, недоедание и уязвимость к болезням. “.

Глава США призвал к «международным действиям по укреплению систем здравоохранения Африки, поддержанию поставок продовольствия, предотвращению финансового кризиса, поддержке образования, защите рабочих мест, сохранению на плаву домашних хозяйств и предприятий и защите континента от упущенных и экспортных доходов». Он сказал, что континенту необходимо более 200 миллиардов долларов и «общая задолженность африканских стран», чтобы помочь справиться с разрушительными экономическими и социальными последствиями кризиса.

«Спрос на сырьевые товары, туризм и денежные переводы в Африке уже снижается», – сказал Гутерриш, добавив, что «открытие торговой зоны было отложено».

5:41 утра: Кембриджский университет будет держать все лекции онлайн до лета 2021 года

Престижный Кембриджский университет планирует в течение следующего учебного года вести онлайн все лекции в связи с пандемией коронавируса.

«Университет постоянно приспосабливается к меняющимся советам, возникающим во время этой пандемии», – заявил представитель ABC News в среду. «Учитывая, что, вероятно, социальное дистанцирование будет по-прежнему требоваться, университет решил, что в следующем учебном году не будет никаких лекций лицом к лицу».

Это первый всемирно известный университет, объявивший о таких планах после наступающего осеннего семестра.

«Лекции по-прежнему будут доступны в Интернете, и, возможно, будет возможно организовать небольшие группы преподавателей лично, если это соответствует требованиям социального дистанцирования», – добавил представитель. «Это решение было принято сейчас, чтобы облегчить планирование, но, как всегда, оно будет пересмотрено, если будут внесены изменения в официальные рекомендации по коронавирусу».

Кембриджский университет, один из старейших университетов мира, закрыл свои кампусы в Соединенном Королевстве в марте из-за пандемии. Все обучение было перенесено онлайн, и экзамены проводятся практически.

4:19 утра: все 50 штатов США уже ослабили ограничения на коронавирус

Все 50 штатов США в настоящее время предприняли шаги для ослабления ограничений, введенных для ограничения распространения нового коронавируса.

Коннектикут был одним из последних, кто начал заново открывать свое общество и экономику, и жителям разрешили ходить в розничные магазины и обедать на открытом воздухе в ресторанах, начиная со среды. Однако парикмахерские и парикмахерские не будут открыты до 1 июня, в то время как руководство для спортивных залов, маникюрных салонов, салонов массажной терапии и тату-салонов появится позже.

Правительство штата Коннектикут Нед Ламонт назвал это «медленным и методичным открытием».

«Существует баланс, и нет ничего, что без риска», – сказал Ламонт на виртуальной пресс-конференции во вторник. «Я думаю, что мы можем очень вдумчиво работать с теми предприятиями, которые с наименьшей вероятностью будут опасны и, скорее всего, будут иметь реальную экономическую ценность для государства. И я с нетерпением жду, я думаю, что это хороший день для Я надеюсь, что все будут поддерживать свою дисциплину, потому что это сделает ее успешной ».

Процесс не обошелся без противоречий. В начале этого месяца протестующие собрались за пределами столицы штата Коннектикут и особняка губернатора в Хартфорде, требуя, чтобы предприятиям было разрешено возобновить свою деятельность, поскольку все большее число других штатов по всей стране начали открываться.

В Коннектикуте, где проживает около 3,5 миллионов человек, к настоящему моменту проверено более 185 000 человек на наличие COVID-19, и по меньшей мере 38 430 человек дали положительные результаты.

По крайней мере, 3472 человека в штате умерли от этой болезни, а еще 914 остались госпитализированными во вторник.

«Это линии тренда, которые, я думаю, придают нам уверенности», – сказал Ламонт. «Время выбрано правильно, и мы достигли ключевых показателей, которые, как мы думали, будут».

Джо Бенитес, Драгана Йованович, Аарон Катерский, Алина Лобзина, Сэм Суини и Кристина Теодору внесли свой вклад в этот доклад.
