Nieuws & Cijfers over #Omikron

Vandaag over de ziekenhuiscijfers en personeelsproblemen in Engeland, de daling in Zuid-Afrika en explosieve groei in Puerto Rico.

1/10
#Denemarken meldt wederom een stuk minder positieve testen, maar volgens de site is er een storing waardoor het resultaat van 60.000 testen niet beschikbaar is. De ziekenhuisopnames zijn nu +22% tov een week geleden.

2/10
De cijfers in het #VK zijn nog altijd vertekend door minder testen en doordat Wales en Noord-Ierland geen updates leveren. Desondanks is de groei toegenomen tot ruim 50% op weekbasis.

Wednesday's #Covid19 megathread makes an early start as there's so much news to bring you!

#Omicron takes centre stage in Europe with a raft of records (recap coming up), but #UK ministers are increasingly confident the NHS won't be swamped despite England's lack of restrictions
It turned out to be a terrible Tuesday, not just in #UK, which was just one of TEN European countries to hit all time high daily #Covid19 infection numbers.

#Cyprus #France #Greece #Iceland #Italy #Malta #Montenegro #Portugal and #Spain the others to set new records.
Concern in #Norway. The #Omicron wave looked to be beyond the peak; is it making a comeback or is it still delayed Christmas cases?
4,702 new #Covid19 infections, fewer than 100 down on last Weds.

Better health data. 315 in hospital, down 13 since y'day, although 120 are in ICU

Monday's #Covid19 thread starts here. Still holidays around the world for many, including #UK. But here all eyes on Boris Johnson - will he, or won't he make more restrictions or even lockdown? We should know today.

I've got more hospital data in the thread, updated real time..
So let me start with #UK. I've managed to get new health data, which will be critical to the decision on new restrictions in #England

As of y'day there were 7,536 #Covid19 patients in English hospitals; up 17.1% in a week.

But 2,425 of those are in London and that's up 45.5%
Strangely, South-East & South-West areas of #England have fewer #Covid19 patients in hospital.

Occupied hospital beds by region (weekly change):

#London 2,425 +46%
#Midlands 1,345 +17%
#East 681 +16%
#NorthWest 945 +8%
#Yorkshire/NE 847 +3%
#SouthEast 803 -2%
#SouthWest 490 -5%

Este dato pone FELICES a #ClanPierluisi y sus achichincles: es lo que pasó en #Hawaii en 60 años entre la invasión de #EEUU en 1893 y 1959, cuando se convirtió en estado.

El éxodo -o exilio- es por las condiciones impuestas por el imperio contra la colonia. 1/
La historia está ahí. Vamos a refrescarla:
En 1893 #EEUU invadió #Hawaii, país libre de Polinesia, y removió a la reina #Liliuokalani. Colaboraron hacendados de EEUU y Europa. Recordemos que en América solo quedaban #Cuba y #PuertoRico, así que había que apretar el paso.

2/
Mientras, por acá #Espana soltó a #Cuba y #PuertoRico con la #CartaAutonomica, una suerte de divorcio. Eran tiempos distintos: las repúblicas americanas encabezadas por #Haiti habían alcanzado su independencia, y reclamaban que soltaran a las 2 que quedaron.

🧵 ¿Qué vamos a hacer los ex alumnos de @UPR_Oficial por nuestra universidad? Los que decimos que no seríamos nada sin ella y que estamos repartidos entre el archipiélago de #PuertoRico y el mundo.
Hay una guerra en contra de nuestra universidad. El que diga lo contrario miente. Se alimenta de indiferencia por la ignorancia que existe sobre su rol socioeconómico. Se deteriora por el mensaje simplista de sus detractores
Pero la guerra real es contra la posibilidad de un pueblo educado y de pensamiento crítico. Es contra la posibilidad de la independencia individual y el triunfo colectivo.

🧵There has been some unexpected monkey business happening in the #Santurce neighborhood of San Juan... literalmente.
A rhesus macaque monkey has been drawing attention from the public & putting the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) in a tight spot. 1/5
#MonoDeSanturce
The rhesus macaque is native to South, Central and Southeast Asia. Ramón Luis Marcano, a lieutenant with the island’s DNR, said the situation wasn’t normal because in #PuertoRico, these monkeys live on Cayo Santiago, a tiny island off the southeastern coast of the island. 2/5
But because this monkey is on the main island, it is more likely that it escaped from a research project or was an illegal pet that was abandoned. 3/5

I think it is disgraceful that the .@NALIP_org which stands for (The National Association of Latino Independent Producers) has endorsed the racist, stereotypical, anti-Puerto Rican movie West Side Story due to be released Dec 10th, 2021. That this movie was greenlit after the
destruction from Hurricane Maria, continuing protests in Puerto Rico against the erroneous debt, the ouster of a Governor, and power outages due to LUMA a private utility company that is responsible for the daily blackouts is disgusting. As more and more Puerto Ricans
Ricans on the island and here in the diaspora fight and struggle for us to finally be free of United States colonial control and American imperialism WE MUST BOYCOTT WEST SIDE STORY. One of the songs in the movie has these lyrics"Puerto Rico, my heart's devotion, Let it sink back

FACT: The Republican Party in #PuertoRico was FOUNDED by a BLACK Afro-Puerto Rican, by the name of Dr. Jose Celso Barbosa.

#hispanicheritagemonth
Oh, how things have changed.
nbcnews.com/politics/polit…
Now, you look 👀 for Blacks in the leadership of the #PuertoRican Republican Party, and it’s not so much easy; it’s like a “white out” generally very, very, WHITE light-skin looking Boriquas. A few even with blonde hair.

It’s shameful.

Special report done by #Cubans IN #Cuba🇨🇺 Aka real Cubans. Not these Diet Coke white Cubans from South Beach, explaining how the violent #SOSCuba movement with backing from the #US is plotting another wave of violent “protests” to topple the Republic. #CIAColorRevolutionInCuba
“I share this article again because I see that a call for a “peaceful” march is being developed in the networks promoted by this group called the Cuban Archipelago, which in my opinion, is not going to have anything peaceful and much less because of the #DDHH (continues )
Have you not wondered why they chose such a distant date, which coincidentally coincides with the reopening of the country? This call pursues very clear political objectives disguised as a “peaceful march”, & that no one is so naive to think that it is because of the #DDHH

#COVIDPersistente: ¿Qué es?
El COVID Persistente se define como la presencia de uno o varios síntomas, incluso semanas o meses después de adquirir la infección por SARS-CoV-2 independientemente del estado viral

#COVIDPersistente: ¿Qué es?
Los síntomas pueden manifestarse de manera continua o con recaídas. La mayoría de las personas con COVID Persistente tienen pruebas de detección negativas lo que indica que hay daños clínicos a pesar de que el virus ya no se detecte

Mediante comunicado de prensa las compañías Merck y Ridgeback Biotherapeutics anunciaron los resultados de un estudio en el que probaron una pastilla (medicación antiviral oral) llamada molnupiravir contra el #COVID19.
#PuertoRico #SARSCoV2 #SaludPública/1
Según la prensa, los resultados apuntan a que las personas que tomaron molnupiravir por cinco días redujeron su probabilidad de hospitalización y de morir en comparación con un grupo de personas que no tomó la pastilla. #COVID19.

Las personas en el estudio tenían #COVID19 leve o moderado y estaban en los primeros cinco días de síntomas cuando comenzaron a tomar la medicación.

🧵Today marks four years since Hurricane María devastated our islita. The shadows of destruction are still evident in #PuertoRico, mainly in the thousands of homes that were damaged or completely destroyed.
But the rebuilding process has been slow for a variety of reasons. (1/4) Image
According to William Rodríguez, the Housing Department secretary, one of the main reasons for the delay in reconstruction is the restrictions imposed on the island by former President Donald Trump that made it difficult to access the emergency funds. (2/4)
@Pwr4PuertoRico
After Maria, the island was allocated $20.22 billion ($20,223 millones) in disaster recovery (CDBG-DR) funds.
However, Trump imposed restrictions such as a federal financial monitor and requiring the Financial Oversight Board (JSF) to pass judgment on each disbursement. (3/4)

More updates. LUMA is still blocking turning over documents concerning information pertaining hiring, salary, etc
These are news I would not rather have to share, but the degree of loss that Puerto Ricans have been suffering since LUMA took over the grid in June, is beyond reprehensible.
A man in Puerto Rico died while trying to pick avocados in his yard due to active electricity lines being tangled around a tree. Neighbors had many open tickets requesting US imposed firm LUMA for maintenance bc the lines were affecting multiple services tinyurl.com/5h8sejdd

He comenzado a leer los "Manuales para el Reinicio a Clases (en #PuertoRico) ante el Covid-19". Terminé de leer el "MANUAL PARA PADRES" y tengo ganas de llorar. No creo que pueda seguir leyendo el resto. Parece que no hemos aprendido nada.

El virus se propaga principalmente por aerosoles (POR EL AIRE) la evidencia científica es robusta. Las gotas son otra manera de transmisión pero NO ES LA PRINCIPAL. No hay evidencia de contagio por superficies por tanto desinfectar es obsoleto. #COVID19 #SARSCoV2 #PuertoRico /2 Image
Se menciona la ventilación, pero no se dice por qué la misma es clave. No se menciona ni una sola vez la palabra aerosoles, CO2 y no se habla de la importancia de medir la concentración de CO2 en espacios cerrados.

Here you will see images of the Counter Protests where large numbers protested in favor of the Republic, &Against the Protesters who were engaged in violence #TheStreetsBelongToTheRevolutuonaries #LaCalleEsDeLosRevolucionarios #CIAColorRevolutionInCuba
The Counter Protesters spontaneously rose after the Protesters who critiqued the government, began attacking the Police in mass without provocation simply because there was an order to disburse
What I find hilarious was that they are criticizing Cuba for its response to #Covid19 which is vastly superior to this country. And the way they choose to protest was by mixing together in a Large Group, some didn’t even have masks, some did, and without any Social Distancing.

Thread: What’s happening in Vieques #PuertoRico.

A 3 yr old boy died in Vieques after the govt failed to transport him to the big island for a medical emergency. Vieques has been without a hospital since Hurricane Maria in 2017. However, this is not an isolated incident. 👇🏼 Image
Vieques (along with Culebra) is an isle off Puerto Rico that has suffered irredeemable consequences of colonialism to a higher degree compared to the big island. Vieques also saw the US NAVY bombing of its land & shores that to this day, the US govt is yet to compensate them for.
Additionally the islands of Vieques & Culebra have been facing an unreliable maritime transportation system for decades. The govt continues to perpetuate their isolation by ignoring their protests over monthly interruption of shipments of basic necessities law.scu.edu/experiential/i…

Hoy en entrevista, hablé sobre el COVID-19 y los determinantes sociales de la salud utilizando el marco conceptual elaborado por la Comisión de los Determinantes Sociales de la Salud de la Organización Mundial de la Salud.
Aquí una breve explicación
#SaludPública #PuertoRico /1
a)Contexto socieconómico y político. Integrado por factores contextuales. Está formado por características estructurales y culturales de los sistemas sociales que condicionan las oportunidades de los individuos y las jerarquías sociales.
