The future boss of the WHO wants to expand the donor base

New reports, new measures and highlights: an update on the latest developments in the Covid-19 pandemic around the world.

A compulsory vaccine?

Australia on Wednesday launched the debate on the need for countries to make the future vaccine against the coronavirus mandatory, as contaminations start to rise again and restrictions multiply around the world.

According to the WHO, 168 vaccine candidates against Covid-19 are currently in development, but none are yet ready to be marketed.

In the United States, the Moderna laboratory has an advanced project while Australia has made sure to obtain a “promising” vaccine thanks to an agreement made with the Swedish-British pharmaceutical group AstraZeneca. A Chinese vaccine will soon be tested in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.

Pope Francis wanted future vaccines not to be primarily intended for “the richest”.

More than 780,000 dead

The novel coronavirus pandemic has killed at least 781,194 worldwide since the WHO office in China reported the onset of the disease at the end of December, according to a report established by AFP from official sources Wednesday at 11:00 GMT.

More than 22,187,780 cases of infection have been officially diagnosed in 196 countries and territories.

The United States is the most affected country in terms of both deaths and cases, with 171,833 deaths for 5,482,823 cases. Next come Brazil (109,888 dead), Mexico (57,774), India (52,889), and the United Kingdom (41,381).

Sierra Leone: impact on malaria

In Sierra Leone, doctors and NGOs are worried that malaria will flourish over fears related to the coronavirus. They see the extreme cases of malaria multiply since patients avoid going to the hospital for fear of being infected with Covid-19.

Lack of adequate medical monitoring is particularly dangerous for children during the current rainy season, when malaria is on the rise due to the increasing mosquito population.

Mask compulsory in Toulouse

Wearing a mask will be compulsory from Friday throughout the municipality of Toulouse due to the active circulation of the Covid-19 in the fourth city in France, decided the prefect of Haute-Garonne.

At a time when the obligation to wear a mask is spreading in France, for example within companies, Professor Didier Raoult, director of the Institut Méditerranée-Infection in Marseille, declared for his part that he “would have preferred that we remain at a level of recommendation rather than obligation “.

“If the masks can reassure that is one thing, but I am worried that we are focusing too much on it, because now it is people who will want to lay down the law,” he said.

Finland protects itself

To “preserve the relatively good situation” vis-à-vis Covid-19 within its borders, Finland has removed from its green list most travelers coming from countries of the European Union, who will now have to observe a quarantine at their arrival. France and Belgium are particularly concerned.

Brittany Ferries reduces its sails

The shipping company Brittany Ferries will reduce its crossings between France and England and carry out partial unemployment measures, less than a week after the announcement of a British quarantine for travelers coming from France.

Brittany Ferries, of which 85% of passengers are British, has recorded 35,000 cancellations or postponements of trips since last weekend.

The Florida Project – The film starts review on FILMSTARTS.de

Hardly any American independent film in recent years has been as celebrated as Sean Baker’s “Tangerine LA”, a film about the life of transsexuals in Los Angeles, shot on the iPhone. Although the distinctive visual style also made it something special, the most remarkable thing about the drama was the documentary precise look of the director on a special section of American reality, which in its raw, authentic immediacy was reminiscent of the great works of Italian neorealism. Baker’s new film “The Florida Project“, The one in the next row Directors’ fortnight premiered at the Cannes festival in 2017. In this social drama, the filmmaker tells in an unpretentious but touching way about the life of a six-year-old girl who lives with her mother on the verge of subsistence.

The sunny state of Florida is not a paradise everywhere, especially if you have to live on scanty American welfare and try to keep yourself afloat with more or less windy business. Despite these difficult circumstances, Halley (Bria Vinaite) tries to be a good mother to her six-year-old daughter Moonee (Brooklynn Prince). The duo lives in a motel complex called “Magic Castle” (!), Where Halley usually lies in front of the TV and smokes, while Mooney roams around with her little friends and makes nonsense. Not always to the delight of the manager Bobby (Willem Dafoe), who despite some anger, because he has because of Moonee – and even more Halley – has sympathy for mother and daughter.


For one summer Sean Baker observed his characters, for a few weeks in a loose structure, he strung together scenes from a life without imposing a dramaturgical structure on them. The fact that he almost consistently tells from the perspective of the girl Mooney is a clever trick, because the meager circumstances of her life seem less dramatic for the six-year-old, her awareness of existence on the edge of the subsistence level is barely pronounced. Instead, Moonee and her friends of the same age roam the motel complex and the surrounding area full of curiosity, go on a journey of discovery, scrounge ice cream and do what children do. Mooney hardly notices that Moonee and her mother depend on the alms of a church organization, that Halley earns some money with often crooked deals, all of which Mooney hardly notices, especially since she is in no way neglected by her mother.

As in previous films, Sean Baker observes a distinctive subculture. Whereas in “Starlet” it was the porn scene of the San Fernando Valley and then in “Tangerine” the world of transsexuals, in “The Florida Project” it is now the demarcated cosmos of a motel whose residents are among the socially disadvantaged. The director has clearly researched carefully and shows a great feeling for the special features of this world on the edge of society. The fact that he once again mainly works with amateur actors reinforces the impression of absolute authenticity. But a star like Willem Dafoe (“Spider-Man”, “Antichrist”) also fits perfectly into the ensemble. His outsider figure serves as a kind of moral compass here. He looks at Moonee and Halley with compassion, tries to save the mother-daughter duo from the worst and ultimately has to watch the development helplessly. Baker resists the temptation to pathetically exaggerate the tragic aspects of the story and brings us closer to the problems and conflicts of the observed milieu in a cautious manner and with unobtrusive humanity.

Conclusion: With “The Florida Project”, Sean Baker dives into a striking subculture like in his previous films and this time draws an authentic portrait of the poor residents of a run-down motel complex.

We saw “The Florida Project” at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival where it was featured in the Directors’ fortnight will be shown.

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus new WHO boss

The American sports world, leading NBA basketball players, has started an unprecedented boycott of competitions in reaction to the Jacob Blake affair, named after the young African-American seriously injured by a police officer, who is reviving the anti-racist movement in the United States. United States.

Triggered by the Milwaukee Bucks basketball team, which boycotted a game and forced the NBA to postpone several other games on Wednesday, the movement has spread at high speed.

“WE CALL FOR CHANGE. WE’RE TIRED”, tweeted Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James. According to several media, the Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers have voted to drop the NBA season.

Japanese tennis player Naomi Osaka has refused to play in the semi-final of the Cincinnnati tournament, whose organizers have postponed all matches scheduled for Thursday by one day. Football and baseball matches have also been postponed due to a player boycott.

“As a black woman, I feel like there are much more important issues that need immediate attention, rather than watching me play tennis,” justified Naomi Osaka, 22, whose mother is Japanese and father Haitian, and who has often spoken in recent months to denounce racial injustice.

Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old father, was seriously injured when a police officer shot him seven times in the back on Sunday in Kenosha, Wisconsin, as he resisted his arrest, in a context still unclear.

According to a statement from the Wisconsin Department of Justice, police were dispatched to the scene following a call from a woman saying that “her boy friend“was at home and “was not meant” be there. Once there, the statement added, the agents have, “unsuccessful”, “tried to stop“Jacob Blake using a taser.

Wave of emotion

The man had warned them that he “was in possession of a knife”, say local authorities. Investigators have indeed found a knife on the floor of the vehicle, in which was no other weapon, specifies the ministry by revealing the name of the police officer who fired seven times: Rusten Sheskey. He has so far been laid off with one of his colleagues.

Filmed by witnesses and broadcast on social networks, the scene sparked a wave of emotion in the country and sparked a dangerous cocktail in Kenosha, mixing rioters and vigilante groups.

Three months after the death of George Floyd, a black forty-something suffocated under the knee of a white policeman in Minneapolis, anger is again strong in the United States in the face of racism and police violence.

Protesters in the streets after the gunfire that injured Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin on August 26, 2020.

Reflection of growing anger, the processions degenerated into violence every night in Kenosha, with clashes between protesters and the police and numerous degradations despite a curfew, the deployment of 250 soldiers of the National Guard and appeals for calm from Jacob Blake’s family.

In this context of extreme tension, two people were shot dead and a third injured in circumstances which remain rather unclear.

A 17-year-old teenager is suspected of being the author of the shootings and has been arraigned for murder charges, police said without giving further details.

Protests in Wisconsin.

According to local media, he was seen in the presence of armed men who pose as “militias” or some “self-defense groups”, eager to protect the city. County Sheriff David Beth confirmed their presence in the area, without specifying whether the shooter was from those groups.

Some 200 people gathered in Kenosha in a peaceful march overnight from Wednesday to Thursday, shouting “No justice, no peace”. Another demonstration is scheduled for Thursday afternoon in front of the city courthouse.

In downtown Los Angeles, where around 300 anti-racism protesters gathered early in the morning, scuffles broke out with police firing rubber bullets after trying to carry out arrests at a rally. in a tunnel, according to images broadcast by ABC News.

“The anarchy”

President Donald Trump, who has regularly defended the right to carry arms and self-defense, a speech dear to his electoral base, did not speak about this dramatic episode, emphasizing the excesses committed by the protesters.

We will not tolerate looting, arson, violence and lawlessness on American streets “, Mr. Trump tweeted promising, according to his November 3 presidential campaign slogan, to “restore LAW and ORDER!” in Kenosha.

To do this, said the Republican president, the governor of Wisconsin has accepted the sending of new reinforcements, both members of the federal police and soldiers of the National Guard, in this city of 100,000 inhabitants.

His Democratic rival Joe Biden has adopted the posture of reconciler. “Once again a black man, Jacob Blake, got shot by the police. His children watched. It makes me sick.”, he tweeted.

Kenosha’s drama follows in the wake of a major anti-racist protest movement born after George Floyd’s death on May 25.

Protests across the country have called for structural police reforms and a rethinking of US history to make room for the suffering endured by minorities. Sometimes accompanied by looting and clashes with the police, they had run out of steam in recent weeks.

On Saturday in Berlin, around 40,000 people were able to participate in a rally calling “at the end of all restrictions in place” against Covid-19. The attempted storming of the national parliament on the sidelines of this demonstration sparked an uproar in Germany.

The Berlin municipality had tried to ban the rally on Saturday, arguing that it was impossible to enforce safety distances and barrier gestures, given the number of people announced and their determination. But justice, seized by the organizers, finally authorized the demonstration.

On Sunday, some 2,000 protesters gathered again not far from Parliament. They were quickly dislodged by the police.

Several other similar, but less important gatherings took place in Europe, Great Britain, France or Austria.

Sports are resuming, but still disturbed by the virus, such as the US Open, which starts Monday behind closed doors: Benoît Paire was removed from the table of this Grand Slam lifting after the announcement on Sunday by the organizers that a player had tested positive for Covid-19. The sports daily L’Equipe had previously announced that the French, seeded N.17 in the US Open where he was to start on Tuesday against the Polish Kamil Majchrzak (108th), had been excluded from the tournament for a positive test.

The screening test, Lionel Messi did not do, as was expected for all FC Barcelona players on Sunday. In the showdown that begins between the six-fold Argentinian Ballon d’Or and the Catalan club, the coronavirus will therefore have embodied the first milestone.

Treating Mallorca acne • What helps against summer acne?

Most people know about sunburn. However, some respond particularly strongly to the ultraviolet radiation from the sun: Your skin reacts with pimples, the so-called Mallorca acne. What helps, which home remedies work and how you can prevent them: Lifeline explains.

Oily skin and sun creams can intensify or trigger Mallorca acne.

Mallorca acne is a form of light or sun allergy. In reality, the symptoms are not an allergy, but a special form of so-called “light dermatosis” or “sun eczema”.

Mallorca acne or other diseases of the “sun allergic” form group affect an estimated 20 percent of the population, especially women and young people with oily skin.

Overview of article content:

Home remedies for sunburn: This relieves the pain acutely!

Home remedies for sunburn: This relieves the pain acutely!

Symptoms: How does Mallorca acne manifest itself?

Those who suffer from Mallorca acne are hypersensitive to a combination of sunscreen and UV radiation. As a result, new connective tissue around the hair follicles forms, millimeter-sized, weeping nodules develop.

Skin areas such as the upper arms, shoulders, upper back, décolleté and neck are particularly affected. Mallorca acne is less common on the face and neck.

Unlike real acne, there are no purulent inflammations. But summer acne is accompanied by excruciating itching.

Causes of Mallorca acne: sun and fat

Mallorca acne, also called “sun acne” or “acne aestivalis”, arises when people lie in the sun for a long time without having used their skin to UV radiation beforehand and when, in addition to the sun, fat, usually through sunscreen, comes into play is coming.

Free radicals are generated by intensive UV radiation. The reactive molecules combine with the skin fat from the sebaceous glands. The released substances activate the immune system, which in turn is responsible for the excessive reaction of the skin.

Emulsifiers or certain fats in sun creams or personal care products intensify this reaction and lead to unpleasant symptoms such as nodules, wheals and reddening of the skin. But detergents, household cleaners and perfume are also potential triggers of Mallorca acne.

The sun pimples are rarer side effects of special photochemotherapy for severe psoriasis or neurodermatitis.

Treatment of Mallorca acne

Anyone who notices the first signs of Mallorca acne for themselves, it means: get out of the sun immediately and stop using oily sunscreens.

Prescription-free oral antihistamines relieve the itching in Mallorca acne. In severe cases, the symptoms can also be treated with acne agents such as benzoyl peroxide and adapalene. Under no circumstances should you push around Mallorca acne or give in to itching and scratch. That only aggravates the symptoms.

There is no evidence that external treatment with glucocorticoids or oral antibiotics could help with Mallorca acne.

Home remedies for Mallorca acne

There are a number of proven home remedies for Mallorca acne. These include:

  • Cooling – but not too strong – is good for Mallorca acne. A cold pack or cold envelopes make sense.

  • Quark wrap: To do this, spread cold quark on a clean cotton cloth and place the whole thing on the affected skin.

  • Medicinal plants such as witch hazel and oak bark soothe the skin in Mallorca acne. Prepare a brew from it, let it cool, soak a clean cloth with it and dab the affected skin areas again and again.

  • Chamomile extract relieves Mallorca acne. Dab the affected areas with a little diluted, cold extract. Chamomile also fights inflammation.

How long does it take to heal Mallorca acne?

The two most important measures, i.e. avoiding exposure to the sun and avoiding fatty creams, usually lead to a spontaneous abatement of Mallorca acne.

Mallorca acne usually heals within a few weeks without scarring. As long as the skin is recovering and the rash is recovering, the affected body surface should be protected from further sun exposure with clothing in order not to delay the healing process.

Prevent Mallorca acne

Especially people who know that they react to intense UV radiation with a rash or acne pustules should get their skin used to the sun carefully. It is taboo whether at home or in the distance, the intense midday sun, shade is always preferred. This applies not only to people sensitive to the sun, but also to everyone else to prevent skin cancer, sunburn and sunstroke.

The right sunscreen for Mallorca acne

To prevent Mallorca acne, the sunscreen should also be chosen carefully. Fatty products and sun creams with emulsifiers are less suitable. Grease-free sunscreens are better, preferably in gel form or as a spray.

Perfumed products should also be avoided, because the fragrances additionally irritate the skin under the influence of UV rays.

Sunscreen products with UV filters made of zinc oxide and titanium oxide, which are gentle on sensitive skin, are recommended for those with a tendency to Mallorca acne.

Macron’s “right to make mistakes” for your 2017 return?



During his campaign, Emmanuel Macron displayed his desire to facilitate the administrative procedures of the French. The new President of the Republic wishes to set up a “right to error” for administrative formalities, as soon as possible.

Emmanuel Macron’s reform plan, which went almost unnoticed during the presidential campaign, could quickly upset the French administration. Announced in the candidate’s program for En Marche!, The “right to make mistakes” is a legal principle aimed at simplifying administrative procedures for French people with the administration. The measure would consist in not sanctioning errors and forgetting in good faith, in the event of the first failure noted by the taxman, URSSAF, etc. Errors in the criminal or other people’s security would however be excluded from the reform.
In his program, Emmanuel Macron foreshadowed that “the heart of the battle does not [serait] plus the sanction but the advice and support “. A measure specifically intended for employers, entrepreneurs, self-employed workers and farmers … But not only. Taking regularly the same examples, the candidate Emmanuel Macron had implied that the right to error would also apply to the procedures of individuals. In his project, was described the case of a couple of grandparents who forgot to declare the accommodation of their granddaughter, who had found a job near home In this situation, the couple was exposed to a loss of compensation, or even to penalties. “They can tomorrow assert their right to make mistakes and no longer pay penalties” indicated the program of the new president of the Republic.

When is “tomorrow”? No response yet. But in the same way as for his reform of the Labor Code, Emmanuel Macron could proceed by ordinance, in order to accelerate the implementation of such a measure. What about your income tax, then? Don’t count on it too much for this 2017 tax campaign. Already because no mention of a new right to error for the declaration of income or wealth (in the case of ISF declaration) has been made, either by the president or a member of his close guard. Second, because even if adopted by ordinance, such a device could not come into force before the reporting deadlines. You are therefore advised, once again this year, to avoid any error on your tax return.
