Fifty-one people have died from the disease in the city so far.Amid the outbreak of the fast-spreading virus, health workers need more and more healthcare supplies, especially protective gear.

Great-grandmother, 97, becomes Brazil’s oldest coronavirus survivor

first_imgWhen 97-year-old Brazilian Gina Dal Colleto was hospitalized on April 1 with coronavirus symptoms, few could have thought she would survive the deadly virus.On Sunday, however, Dal Colleto was pushed in a wheelchair out of Sao Paulo’s Vila Nova Star hospital to applause from doctors and nurses, becoming the oldest known survivor of COVID-19 in Brazil, the Latin American country worst-hit by the outbreak.Her unexpected recovery was a ray of hope in Brazil, where the coronavirus has laid bare a stretched public health system and exposed fierce political debate over how to best tackle the virus’ spread and prop up the country’s economy. The sole survivor of an Italian family comprising 11 siblings, Dal Colleto lived alone in the port city of Santos, Rede D’Or São Luiz, which controls the Vila Nova Star hospital, said in a statement.”Even with almost a century of life, Gina has a very active routine and enjoys walking, shopping and cooking,” the statement said. “She has six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.”While she was hospitalized, Dal Colleto was put on oxygen and admitted to intensive care, the statement said.On Sunday, Brazil’s health ministry said 1,223 people had died as a result of the outbreak, 99 more than the previous day’s total. Brazil now has 22,169 confirmed cases. Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, a far-right former army captain, has chafed at social distancing measures imposed by state governors and even his own health officials. He wants the economy restarted, arguing that extended shutdowns pose a greater risk than a disease he calls a “little cold.”However, that stance has cost him in the polls and most nights, in cities across Brazil, quarantined Brazilians are banging pots and pans in protest at his handling of the crisis.On Sunday, Bolsonaro said he thought that the coronavirus was on its way out of Brazil, although he gave no explanation. In its place, he added, was coming further unemployment.”It seems that the virus issue is starting to go away, but unemployment is coming … hard. We must fight these two things,” he said in a televised call with religious leaders. center_img Topics :last_img read more

EPL clubs agree to extend summer transfer window

first_img As SunSport revealed, the Big Six voted as a bloc, initially to confirm that change was needed and then in favour of the change back to the previous system. The other option, for an early deadline regarding deals between Premier League clubs and a later one for transfers to and from Europe and the EFL, was backed by some smaller Prem sides. But the Big Six view held sway and the League announced the change. In a statement, the Prem said: “At a Shareholders’ Meeting today, Premier League clubs voted to adopt a change to the Summer Transfer Window closing date for season 2020/21. Manchester United chief Ed Woodward maintained his desire for the window to shut at the end of August Read Also: Real Madrid, Barcelona battle Man Utd for £60m-rated Grealish “This will move the closing date back to the traditional point at the end of August/early September. “The 2020 closing date will therefore be 17:00 BST on 1 September (31 August 2020 being a UK Bank Holiday). “Clubs agreed after discussing the topic at length at previous Shareholders’ Meetings.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Premier League clubs have voted to revert to an end-of-August deadline for the summer transfer window. In a victory for the Big Six, all top-flight sides will be able to add players until the European cut-off point of September 1 this summer. Daniel Levy was spotted arriving alongside Chelsea counterpart Bruce Buck The 20 clubs met at a central London hotel this morning to thrash out the divisive issue. Clubs voted to introduce an early window closure for the 2018-19 season. That meant Prem sides could only register players for the new season up until the Thursday before the start of the campaign. Despite a move led by Chelsea and Manchester United to go back to the previous system for this season, the clubs voted to stick with the earlier deadline for another year. But Liverpool, Spurs and Arsenal, initially in favour of the early window deadline, changed sides after another summer of uncertainty. Clubs noted that European rivals had up to 25 extra days to finish off their summer business, which meant more than three weeks of speculation. Spurs fretted over schemer Christian Eriksen, while Paul Pogba’s Manchester United future was also an ongoing debate before the end of August.center_img Promoted ContentThe Funniest Prankster Grandma And Her GrandsonWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?Top 10 Iconic Personalities On TV NowWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A TattooWho’s The Best Car Manufacturer Of All Time?8 Superfoods For Growing Hair Back And Stimulating Its GrowthThe 10 Best Secondary Education Systems In The WorldCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable Way11 Most Immersive Game To Play On Your Table TopPortuguese Street Artist Creates Hyper-Realistic 3D Graffiti8 Amazing Facts About Ancient Egyptlast_img read more
