8.06 The WHO warns about the “serious” situation in Brazil and calls for “aggressive” measures to stop Covid-19
The World Health Organization has warned this Friday about the “very serious” situation in Brazil due to Covid-19 due to the increase in cases, specifically those of the Brazilian variant, and has called on the authorities to take “aggressive” measures of public health and deploy vaccines throughout its territory to stop the advance of the pandemic.
The director general of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, has warned that the trend will not change in the Latin American giant if measures to contain the coronavirus are not adopted.
According to the WHO, the country has a higher level of contagion by the P.1 variant, which has a greater transmission capacity and which would be causing reinfections in the areas of Manaus and Amazonas, which have recently experienced “intense outbreaks”.
“With the proportion of current cases, we can say that they are reinfections probably due to the decrease in immunity over time or because this variant does not respond to natural immunity, which warns us that we have to be very careful with vaccines and make sure that they also work against this mutation, “said the director of Health Emergencies of the WHO, Michael Ryan.
8.00 New York cinemas reopen with important security measures
New York City cinemas reopened this Friday with important security measures almost a year after the Big Apple began its lockdown, which led the entire entertainment sector to have to stop dead in its tracks.
Although most theaters in New York State got permission to start operating again last October, this was not the case for those in the metropolis, who did not receive the go-ahead until last week by the governor, Andrew. Cuomo, who defined March 5 as the first day of his “return to normalcy.”
However, Cuomo ordered that cinemas have to limit their capacity to 25%, and that the number of people in the same room cannot exceed 50, which has led some to delay opening even more, since they do not consider that it will be financially viable to receive so few clients.
The AMC cinema chain has opened its 13 stores throughout New York City, as well as the iconic Angelika Film Center in Manhattan, which has implemented a system whereby the seats that surround the purchased ones are automatically blocked when they are acquired. online or at the box office, ensuring social distancing during the movie. Also, both the movie theater and the coffee shop you have will not accept cash payments.
