The infection peaked, New York rushed to produce medical equipment

“Fashion Center” in Manhattan, New York (USA) began to switch to manufacturing protective gowns to supply hospitals.

According to the New York Post , the “Fashion Center” residential area in Manhattan, New York (USA) began to turn to production of protective gowns to supply hospitals here. It is expected that this plan will provide jobs for about 500 employees in New York.

New York is currently the largest Covid-19 epidemic in the United States, with more than 242,700 cases, putting pressure on health authorities. Earlier, many fashion companies in the US also started to produce masks and protective gear.

Earlier, US President Donald Trump asked New York state to take drastic measures against the emergency situation in hospitals in this state.

Working with private businesses and the National Council of Textile Organizations, the White House said it would provide 1 million meters of waterproof fabric for the production of protective clothing.

Raw materials will be sent to the top 4 production sites in New York state. According to the mayor’s office, more than 40,000 gowns will be made of Owens & Minor fabrics this week, before rising to 400,000 on May 23.

Some private facilities have also manufacture medical devices since the outbreak of the disease in the United States.

Currently, New York state has enough supplies of medical masks, gloves and N95 masks this week. However, the supply of protective vests is still scarce. Image inside a mask manufacturing facility in the state of Texas (USA).

Earlier, the New York Mayor’s office had ordered fabric from China to produce more than 300,0000 protective coats, but it was unsuccessful.

With the support of the White House, manufacturing in New York City not only creates jobs for workers during the epidemic, but also increases the trust of medical products produced by the people themselves.

    “They are dying, it’s true,” Trump said in an interview with news site Axios . “Accept this. But that doesn’t mean we haven’t done everything we can yet. The pandemic is under control as much as possible in America. This is a terrible epidemic.”

    In Brazil, President Jair Bolsonaro ignores the severity of the pandemic and opposes restrictions to prevent virus spreading, even if he and some of his cabinet members are already virus-positive.

    The pandemic affected Latin America, where about 640 million people live, more slowly than in other parts of the world. However, officials still struggle to control the virus because of the poverty and high population density of the area.

    More than 100 million people across Latin America and the Caribbean live in slums, according to the United Nations Human Resources Program . Many worked in the informal economy, had little access to the welfare system, and had to work during the pandemic.

    Australia , Japan , Hong Kong , Bolivia, Sudan, Ethiopia, Bulgaria, Belgium, Uzbekistan and Israel all recorded a record increase in new infections over the past few days.

  • WHO updates mask recommendations

    Now they are advised to wear not only sick.

    WHO Director-General Tedros Hebreyusus, at a new briefing on COVID-19, announced new recommendations for the prevention of coronavirus. Here are the main points:

    • Doctors and other medical staff should always wear masks, regardless of whether they work with infected coronavirus infections or not.
    • People over 60 years of age, as well as those who have chronic diseases, are advised to wear masks wherever it is impossible to maintain physical distance.
    • The governments of the countries should encourage the wearing of masks in any places where it is impossible to maintain physical distance, especially for public transport and shops.
    • Those with symptoms similar to coronavirus infection should stay at home. All who contacted him should be quarantined.
    • If a sick person or someone who has contacted him needs to leave the house, he must wear a mask.
    • WHO considers masks to be of high quality, which consist of three layers of different materials or more.

    Previously, the WHO spoke only about the need to wear masks for patients who were ill, because there was insufficient data (apart from clinical studies, which many experts consider to be of little relevance to real life).

  • WHO recorded 106,000 new infections globally in 24 hours

    The WHO recorded 106,000 infections in 24 hours, a record day since the outbreak, with two-thirds of these cases recorded in only 4 countries.

    Tedros Adhanom-Ghebreyesus, Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO), said on May 20 that the number of coronavirus infections reported to the agency in the past 24 hours has been higher than at any time since outbreaks, according to CNN.

    “We still have a long way to go in this pandemic,” Tedros said at a news conference in Geneva, Switzerland. “In the past 24 hours, 106,000 cases have been reported to WHO – the highest daily level since the outbreak.”

    “About two-thirds of these cases have been reported in only four countries,” he added.

    According to WHO epidemiologist Maria Van Kerkhove, confirming with CNN via email, these four countries are the US , Russia, Brazil and India.

    It should be noted that there may be a delay in reporting the number of cases at various points in the process, so the above date record does not mean that these 106,000 people were infected, tested or statistically counted in the last 24 hours.

    According to the constantly updated data of John Hopkins University, the world has recorded nearly 5 million cases of coronavirus, of which more than 326,000 people have died. The United States remains the leading country in both cases – more than 1.5 million, and deaths – more than 93,000.

    Notably, Russia has recently become the second country in the number of cases – more than 308,000, although only a few weeks earlier did not even make the top 20 of the list. Brazil also climbed rapidly in the ranking, ranking third in the number of cases – more than 271,000.

    Russia is ranked second in terms of deaths – more than 35,000, followed by Italy – more than 32,000, France – more than 28,000, Spain – more than 27,000.
