How Coronavirus is influencing the Italian researches on Google

The spread of Coronavirus in Italy also reflects its effects on Google where there has been a huge spike in donation searches in the past seven days. According to ‘Google Trends’, in the last seven days the Italians are looking for donors or fundraiser as the football player Bobo Vieri, who recorded a very important surge like that of Cristiano Ronaldo and Insigne. Even Silvio Berlusconi, with his record donation of the last few hours, catalysed the attention of the Italians, who ran to Google to find out more about the news and how to participate to funding campaigns in favour of their hospitals.

The desire to contribute to the fight against Coronavirus emerges. In any form. So here are the huge spikes on associated queries such as “blood donations”, “coronavirus donations”, “hospital donations”. Lombardy and Lazio are the most interested regions, albeit in a different way: in the first case, different donation recipients are sought, like hospitals, sports initiatives or VIPs, in the second, research is strongly focused on the donation methods blood. The Italians once again confirm their desire to contribute to putting the emergency behind them. “Once again Google confirms itself as a thermometer of the mood of Italians” – comments Ale Agostini, author Hoepli and director of Avant Grade, adding that “it is a delicate moment and there are many who want to help out of the emergency. The data on territoriality also show the different moods from region to region but it is clear that the desire to be useful is univocal”.

The arrival of the Coronavirus, or Covid-19, in Italy has dominated the news and has overwhelmed all aspects of the daily life of the Lombards first and then all the Italians. The necessary state of closure of the entire country, the disregard of the simple rules to stem the infection and the consequent lowering of the shutters of companies and activities, have put the Italian people in a surreal quarantine situation. Something no one would have expected. The invitation not to go to crowded places and to stay at home has influenced all Google searches where there has been also a surge in searches related to teleworking tools, online training and web meetings. In addition to donation and smart working, it seems that Italians are trying to spending times with sweets, showing interest in cake recipes for Women’s Day and Nutella mozzarella.

Boris Johnson says, will present further measures ensuring all workers will get support for coronavirus crisis

On Wednesday, British PM Boris Johnson expressed that his legislature would present new measures to help workers and shield private tenants from being removed from their homes due to coronavirus.

Britain is setting up testing for coronavirus to 25,000 every day. The health ministry later told that the administration aimed to find a workable solution within a month.

Wednesday morning, Britain had tested over 56,000 individuals for coronavirus, 2,626 came out positive.

“We will present further measures to guarantee that each worker gets support all through this troublesome period,” Johnson told parliament.

Johnson’s spokesperson stated the administration was working with business groups and trade unions to “primarily build up the best help for peoples’ earnings and employment.” The need was to bring about a solution that could be conducted rapidly and reach the correct individuals, including through the present welfare system.

The administration likewise believes the business can build up a “point-of-care” swab test done outside of emergency clinics so that individuals with suspected symptoms can rapidly see whether they are infected with the coronavirus.

Non-EU citizens turned back as travel restrictions imposed to prevent the spread of COVID-19

Brussels have prohibited the entry of travelers from the bloc for 30 days to fight the spread of coronavirus. According to reports, Around 140 people have been advised to return from Frankfurt Airport.

On Tuesday, Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced that the coronavirus pandemic was causing a “socio-economic tsunami” as European leaders consented to close external borders.

The move by the EU is its most noteworthy crisis measure yet, which has paced to devise a united response to the fatal pandemic that is rapidly spreading globally. There are roughly 80,000 EU nationals around the globe waiting to get back home, an EU representative stated.

The coalition’s Schengen passport-free zone imposes the vital measures and that the EU states outside it should also follow the same, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen proposed. Furthermore, on Monday, the French President Emmanuel Macron addressed the nation and upheld the move.

The ban will be in effect for 30 days and won’t impact Europeans or former EU members of Britain from getting back home.

Germany’s Angela Merkel is expected to address the nation on Wednesday night.

Macron’s office said he “solidly condemned uncoordinated measures to check internal EU borders that are not useful as far as wellbeing and harm the economy,” The National reported.

Few EU nations have shut their borders or ordered health screening controls that might slow cross-border cargo traffic, regardless of calls from Brussels for an individual European plan.

France, Italy, Spain, and now Belgium have chosen complete lockdowns, requesting residents to remain home because of precautionary measures.

PM Boris Johnson also urged residents to maintain a strategic distance and avoid large social gathering, like theaters, malls, libraries, and nightclubs.

Europe closes its border to curtail virus spread

In a consolidated move, European leaders announced sealing its borders in order to slow down the spread of coronavirus. EU has put a travel ban on all the non-EU citizens for the period of 30 days for now. If need be the shutdown could be extended.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel told reporters about the ban after a video conference with her European counterparts. Merkel said that the bloc leaders shared common concerns and a “great readiness” to do whatever deemed necessary to prevent the outbreak from destabilising the society any further. The virus has already caused a “very serious” impact on global economy.

Travel ban, an essential requirement as per many epidemiologists, is bound to cause a severe blow to the European economies, which were almost healing from economic slump a few months ago. EU governments have acknowledged that the bloc is heading to a recession this year.

Many nations including US and Japan are acting fast and about to introduce an emergency stimulus package to provide the must need healthcare and economic boost to its people and nation.

In an attempt to mitigate the impact of the deadly virus, several European nations have already imposed curfews and issued notice to close down schools, colleges, shops, bars, and restaurants. The covid-19 pandemic is already spreading at an unthinkable rate in Europe, posing serious challenges towards the continent’s health care system.

EU has taken a clear stand over closing its external borders, the issue of sealing internal borders still stands unclear, though it seems more likeable option. European governments could restrict the travel of European citizens within EU given the fear of virus transmissions from the nationals of different European states.

Large gatherings are prohibited as concerts, demonstrations, sporting and cultural events. President Macron also announced that sanctions would be applied for transgressors, that the French government should develop in a communiqué later.

Macron said in televised remarks that the government decided to order the restrictions because people haven’t complied with earlier public health measures and “we are at war”. The address arrived after he held a meeting with his prime minister, top military adviser, intelligence coordinator and ministers of health, the interior and foreign affairs on the health crisis. “I want our citizens to realise that there are people who are sick, who are in intensive care and that their number runs into hundreds,” France’s director general of health Jérôme Salomon said on Monday.

Putin might become the longest serving Dictator of Russia

Vladimir Putin has made sure he remains at the helm for the next 16 years, as the court has officially cleared his credentials to continue as the President of Russia. Some proposed constitutional changes were the only hurdle to him potentially leading the country till 2036. With this move, Putin will go onto become the longest serving leader of Russia after Joseph Stalin in the 1920s who ruled over Russia through a combination of military and political power.

Putin had earlier proposed a significant amendment alteration that has now been accepted by the higher Russian court. The amendment allows Putin to run again in 2024 for power. He has served Russia since 1999 in capacity of both PM or President. With the new amendment, he would be in rule till the age of 83 years.

It is being seen as an orchestrated move that had started to gain momentum since January 2020 when the whole parliament had willfully resigned and apologized on public television. It is said, the PM had been asked by Putin to resign and clear the way for his future leadership. The Russian leadership structure works on sense of authority and honor. This was a time when Putin removed longtime ally Dmitry Medvedev as prime minister and replaced him with the former head of the tax service, Mikhail Mishustin, in charge.

There might be a revolt in the making as the civilian population and professionals took to streets, despite the Coronarvirus scare, demanding the court not accept Putin’s plans. Mr. Putin’s leadership has been questionable since the kind of tension had built up with America and the various sanctions that have put pressure on the oil and gas industry players in the country.

An open letter was sent to the media, expressing the exasperation and lack of options for change in leadership. It read, “We believe that the threat of a deep constitutional crisis and an unlawful anti-constitutional coup in a pseudo-legal form is looming over our country.”

Putin is following suite with many countries that have loomed under single leadership for decades, leaving their population disappointed, fending for themselves and fragile economies in literal collapse. Lack of fresh leadership has brought countries like Lebanon, Iran, Iraq, Israel and Turkey down on its knees.

EU members come together to combat coronavirus created economy dip

Just like Japan and the Saudi Arabia, the European Union feels as responsible for its fellow human beings and is taking measures to curb the effect of the novel virus repercussions on the global economy.

The European Union (EU) has decided to put a package of measures in place to help some of the stuck economies of member firms. This includes a €37bn euro (£33bn) investment initiative also. German finance minister Olaf Scholz has further added that his country could part nationalise firms to tackle the crisis.

Germany is amongst the few nations which has also declared that if there is a successful Covid-19 virus vaccine discovered after trials, it will be available to all over the world and will not be given a particular country autonomy. There was news that the US was trying to buy the formula off the German biotechnology company.

On its part, another member nation Norway has decided to suspend some airline taxes as global aviation body International Air Transport Association (IATA) said carriers could fold over the next few months. This is a simple way to buttress the various carriers and give them time to recoup from the dipping numbers in travelers as most of the world has been put under a lock down to contain the virus from spreading.

According to European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, the EU has also decided to offer a guarantee €8bn in loans to 100,000 firms to support the corporate sector that is reeling under severe pressure from doodling numbers. Leyen has further shown trust in the solidarity of the EU members nations to work together to ensure the medical lines are full and these various measures can cushion the jobs and pays of people.

The worst hit seems to the airlines businesses that need to be salvaged, according to Alexandre de Juniac, chief executive of the IATA. It is estimated that more airlines could collapse if the coronavirus crisis last more than another two to three months.

Further Juniac has informed the media that global revenue losses would be “probably above” $113bn that it estimated a week ago, before the Trump administration’s announcement of US travel curbs on passengers from much of continental Europe.

How Ratcliffe might be freed over Debt transaction with Iran

How Ratcliffe might be freed over Debt transaction with Iran

In a bizarre change of events, it has been revealed that the illegal imprisonment of British-Iranian dual national Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe by Iran could have been actually a pressure tactic on the UK to repay a long pending loan of £400million.

It is the first time that a UK or Iranian official has admitted in public that talks on the matter are underway, including the possibility of the debt being paid off through medicines and humanitarian goods. Ratcliffe is a professor by profession and was illegally detained in Iran since April 03, 2016. In early September 2016, she was sentenced to five years’ imprisonment allegedly for ‘plotting to topple the Iranian government’.

Iran is known to be skeptical and intolerant about anyone from the academia who might research, investigate or even utter a word against its running government, invariably terming such individuals as spies from the nation of their origins.

While both sides are not opening admitting the transaction might be in play, Britain’s PM has taken a different stand to the whole thing. According to him, the UK says it cannot make the payment since the Iranian ministry of defence, to which the sum is owed, is subject to EU sanctions. Similarly, the pervasive US sanctions make it difficult to make a payment to Iran’s central bank.
Meanwhile, Ratcliffe’s family has been pushing for her temporary release in the wake of the fact that coronavirus has been hitting Iranian prisoners dearly. However, reports have been shared that her condition is stable despite the widespread outbreak in the Iranian prisons.

On the issue of legitimizing the payment of the debt, The Iranian Ambassador to the UK, Hamid Baeidinejad has shared that the long drawn case that has been pending for close to 50 years come to an end, as the court has ordered the British government to pay the Iranian debt plus interest “This cannot be changed. At the same time, the opposing lawyers have tried to use every legal opportunity to delay the practical execution of the court’s decision,” he said in an official statement.

In order to cut the deal, Britain might want to settle its dues over kind while Johnson calmly and comfortably takes a diplomatic stand and said that Ratcliffe’s release should be sought by her family, on basis of sincere time served in prison and reduction of sentence is viable under good Iranian judicial system.

UK’s Boris Johnson calls Saudi Crown Prince Salman to discuss coronavirus pandemic

The British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, on Sunday afternoon, telephoned Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to discuss the global coronavirus outbreak.

10 Downing Street announced that the prime minister updated the Crown Prince on the measures that the UK is taking, driven by scientific guidance, to control the spread of the disease.

The two leaders concurred on the requirement for a universally organized response to the outbreak, especially on developing a vaccine and checking the economic turmoil caused by the pandemic.

They resolved to work intently on this, including through the G20 that Saudi Arabia is going to host this year.

The G20 Summit is scheduled in the Saudi capital Riyadh between November 21 and 22.

Johnson has spoken via phone with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, US President Donald Trump, Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in the past few days regarding the outbreak.

Johnson is due to chair another Cobra crisis committee with health authorities on Monday to co-ordinate the British government’s response, which a few people have criticized for including less stringent measures than those of other European countries.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock has stated the legislature would take measures for people over 70 years and public vulnerable to Covid-19 to self-isolate, conceivably for months.

On Sunday, 10 Downing Street statement said Johnson and senior ministers would have daily press meetings on the pandemic, upheld by medical specialists and scientists.

G7 pioneers will examine global efforts to fight the infection over a phone call on Monday. Johnson will request all pioneers to help the World Health Organization with fundings and expertise for research. Hoping that would guarantee quick advance to build up a vaccine and drive help to relieve the economic impact of the emergency.

1,809 victims in Italy. The Pope walking in prayer in the center of Rome

The number of victims for the new Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Italy reached 1,809, only yesterday 368 deaths and 175 on Saturday. 2,335 people were healed in Italy after contracting the virus, 369 more than yesterday. More than 20,000 patients have been exceeded: a total of 20,603, an increase of 2,853 compared to Saturday, while the total number of infected people – including victims and the recovered – reached 27,747. The data was provided by the emergency commissioner Angelo Borrelli at a press conference to the Civil Protection’s headquarters. To suffer the most is the north of the country. There are 252 new deaths from coronaviruses in Lombardy, a figure that has never been achieved in the region so far in a single day. Since the beginning of the emergency, the 200 deaths in one day had never been exceeded: yesterday there were 76, while on Wednesday 11 March there were 149, the maximum number of deaths to date. According to the Welfare office of the region, the positive cases to Covid-19 tests are 13,272, plus 1,587, the hospitalized are 4,898, plus 602 compared to yesterday, there is a constant but not exponential growth. In intensive care they increase only by 25, 757 in total, while the deaths are 1,218, with a growth of 252. There were 9924 checks on compliance with the Coronavirus containment measures carried out in Milan yesterday. In 24 hours, the law enforcement officers checked 4,937 people, of these 215 were reported for not having respected the measures – for example, having left the house without reason- while 6 for lying in the self-certification requested by the Interior Minister to go out from their homes.

“Our priority is to make working in safety doctors, nurses and all health personnel who are working with courage and self-sacrifice, dedicating themselves to this health emergency without saving energy. As a government we are strenuously committed – and I himself through contacts with my counterparts – to provide the protective devices that allow them to work in maximum safety in a very short time” Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said on Sunday in a press conference, while Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio affirmed that “the export of masks, suits and face shields from Germany and France has been unblocked”.

To manage the emergency, Italian Government has already ordered 3,800 lung ventilators, with an additional 300 available for immediate delivery, and has contracted supplies for over 30 million surgical masks, more than 7 million gloves, over 13 million coveralls, boots, headphones and gowns and for over 390 thousand swabs and more than 260 diagnostic kits corresponding to over 67 thousand tests. On Sunday, Pope Francis left the Vatican and visited walking in the center of the capital Rome the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore to address a prayer to the Virgin, ‘Salus populi Romani’. The pope made a walk in the central Via del Corso on foot, as if on a pilgrimage, before to reach another church, ‘San Marcello al Corso’, to pray for the end of the pandemic.

To concern more now the doctors is the alarm for submerged cases. “There are many sick people, who were not postponed to Covid19’s tests, risking to inflect their families”. A doctor warned speaking to Italian press. The Health Ministry asked doctors to treat patients with Covid-19 symptoms, considering them “positive”, monitoring them, and asking them to stay isolated as required by law, without ask them to make the test. Report them only if they have had certain contacts with an infected person. “But many people don’t even know if they have had contact at risk, and therefore they are spending days and days at home with a fever at 39, with the terror of getting worse” the doctor confirmed. While hospitals in the provinces of Milano, Bergamo and Brescia are collapsing, the cases that emerge are just the tip of the iceberg. The Covid-19 test is now done only to those who go to hospital because it is already serious and in urgent need of intensive care, but there are many cases with more nuanced symptoms that could be affected by the new Chinese virus. So according to the general doctor’s association, the numbers of people sick are therefore not real.
