A land of last (and hunk). Accorsi’s video for Emilia Romagna • newsrimini.it

“In Emilia Romagna we feel a bit sboroni, we feel first in everything. But it’s not true”. Thus opens the new commercial of Stefano Accorsi which shows the beauty and excellence of the territory, starting from the Riviera, and which at a communicative level plays with the paradox to establish that Emilia Romagna is a land of the last (authentically pleasantly last) and not only. With a “Paolo Cevoli” ending.

The spot was published on the InEmiliaRomagna Facebook page.

Patients who already have lung disease are more susceptible to severe complications from COVID-19. This conclusion was reached by an international group of scientists, the results of a large-scale study were published in the journal “Nature Communications”.

Researchers from 10 countries analyzed the genetic code of over 611,000 lung cells in healthy people and patients with chronic diseases. It turned out that in the latter, the cells of the respiratory tract are more prone to infection with the coronavirus. This leads to severe symptoms of COVID-19 and a greater likelihood of death.

For diseases causing severe consequences of COVID-19, the researchers attributed chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, interstitial lung disease, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, progressive scarring and hardening of the lung tissue. Additional risk factors include old age, male gender, smoking, high blood pressure, obesity, and diabetes.

According to the researchers, genetic changes in cells help the SARS-CoV-2 virus to penetrate them more easily, multiply and trigger an uncontrolled immune response.

“Our results show that patients with chronic lung disease are molecularly predisposed to be more susceptible to SARS-CoV-2 infection,” said study leader Dr. Nicholas Banovich of the US Research Institute for Translational Genomics.

First of all, the scientists looked for changes in AT2 cells, the main type of lung epithelial cells, with particular attention to the cellular pathways and levels of gene expression associated with COVID-19.

They also assessed changes in immune cells and found unregulated gene expression in patients with chronic lung disease associated with hyperinflammation and sustained cytokine production, two characteristic symptoms of severe coronavirus infection.

Prosecutor’s Office hands over the building confiscated from the ARENA party to Conab

From today, the property will be administered by the National Council for the Administration of Assets CONAB.

The Office of the Attorney General of the Republic (FGR) delivered today to the State the headquarters building of the National Executive Council of ARENA, COENA, located in San Salvador, the property was seized during the investigations of the case called Taiwan.

From today, the property will be administered by the National Council for the Administration of Assets (CONAB).

“This is the culmination of the diligence that began a few weeks ago against ARENA. It is the extinction of assets to try to recover the money diverted to the accounts of the ARENA party for the Antonio Saca campaign, ”explained the prosecutor imposed by the ruling party Rodolfo Delgado.

On June 2, the Public Ministry seized two properties from that party, including the COENA headquarters; also, he made the preventive scoring of 17 vehicles.

In addition to the seizures of real estate, the Prosecutor’s Office froze 2.9 million dollars of the political debt of the aforementioned political institute for the last elections.

With this action, the Prosecutor’s Office intends to recover the funds donated to El Salvador by the Government of China-Taiwan.

On the same day of the embargo, the party leadership, through a statement, stressed that “El Salvador is facing an imminent danger towards a dictatorship” by pointing out that both President Bukele and the Prosecutor imposed and the “police bowed to him” They try to divert attention from the acts of corruption linked to the current government, all this in order to “not face the Salvadoran population and the international community.”

In addition, the text emphasized that the party’s headquarters “was kidnapped and threatened with the purpose of keeping us silent,” for which it urged the president to “show his face” and dismiss the officials of his cabinet indicated in the Engel List. .

In addition, the director of Legal Affairs of ARENA denounced on that occasion that they did not have in view any document that would protect the procedure and that no judge executing the embargoes was present at the headquarters of ARENA.

Wheat told who can become infected with two strains of coronavirus at the same time

Cases of infection with two strains of coronavirus at once are possible, most often they are observed in people with weakened immune systems and in the elderly. This was announced by Natalya Pshenichnaya, deputy director for clinical and analytical work of the Central Research Institute of Epidemiology of Rospotrebnadzor, TASS reports.

“Cases of double infection with different strains of the same virus have been known for a long time. Cases of almost simultaneous infection with two strains or even subtypes of influenza, influenza and SARS-CoV-2 viruses, as well as different strains of SARS-CoV-2, have been repeatedly described, ”she said.

According to Pshenichnaya, an infection caused by two strains of coronavirus at the same time is more common in people with weakened immune systems and in the elderly. This disease can be more severe, but it is predominantly protracted.

The epidemiologist explained that the immune system is not able to quickly eliminate the first strain that caused the infection, and upon contact with another infected strain, an additional second enters the body.

“A disease caused by two strains of viruses at the same time is dangerous because the exchange of genetic material between them can occur. This can contribute to further variability of the virus and the emergence of new variants. Therefore, it is necessary to be vaccinated as soon as possible so that the virus cannot develop in the population and mutate, ”Pshenichnaya emphasized.

A case of infection with two strains of coronavirus in Russia was detected in 2020 in an elderly woman. “At first, one strain prevailed in her, about a week later another began to predominate,” said Anna Speranskaya, head of the genomics and post-genomic technologies group at the Central Research Institute of Epidemiology of Rospotrebnadzor.

There are cases of double infection, she said, but it is not easy to prove them, since the presence of two different viruses in the sample can be explained by other reasons. Earlier, cases of infection with two strains of coronavirus at once were detected in Thailand and Belgium.

Drugs that reduce the effectiveness of vaccines against covid are named – Capital C

Researchers at Michigan Medical University named drugs that weaken the immune system. Taking them increases your risk of contracting severe covid. Also, these drugs can reduce the effectiveness of vaccination against coronavirus.

According to American scientists, most often doctors prescribe such immunosuppressants as prednisolone (53%), methotrexate (24.5%) and methylprednisolone (21.6%). This category includes dexamethasone, which is widespread in Russia. Collectively, corticosteroids are used by 62.5% of American patients. Finally, chemotherapy drugs, which treat many types of cancer, suppress immunity.

Most often, corticosteroids are used to treat autoimmune diseases in which the immune system overreacts to inflammation and begins to damage the tissues of its own body. To avoid self-destruction, doctors suppress the immune system with steroids. Such diseases include rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, glomerulonephritis, Crohn’s disease.

Steroids are also prescribed for organ transplant patients. In this case, drugs are used so that the immune system does not perceive the transplanted organ as foreign and does not attack it.

Finally, corticosteroids are used for exacerbation of bronchial asthma and other allergic diseases. Rheumatologist Dr. Beth Wallace claims that even low doses and short courses of steroids increase the risk of infection in people and decrease their response to COVID-19 vaccines.

“Vaccines train the immune system to recognize a specific threat so that it can respond appropriately should it ever encounter a real virus again,” Wallace explains. Immunosuppressive drugs, on the other hand, prevent the immune system from finding foreign objects and fighting them. These medicines also decrease the immune system’s ability to respond to infections and vaccines.

Epidemiologist Dr. Megan Baker of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute said that, in general, people on immunosuppressive therapy can and should get vaccinated.

“While the protective effect can vary depending on the underlying condition or immunosuppressive therapy, most people will get some protection from viruses with a vaccine,” Baker said. This will reduce the likelihood of contracting the coronavirus or contracting a severe form of COVID-19.

In some cases, you can stop taking immunosuppressive drugs during the vaccination period until the immune system develops protection. For example, if immunosuppressive therapy is given in series, with intervals between treatments, experts recommend vaccinating at least two weeks before starting the medication.

In any case, Baker advises consulting a doctor to develop an individualized vaccination strategy. The benefits of vaccination will not always outweigh the harms of stopping the medication.

The World Health Organization advises against taking over-the-counter pain relievers several days prior to vaccination. These include paracetamol, ibuprofen, aspirin, or nimesil. It is not yet known how these drugs affect the effectiveness of the vaccine and the possible side effects. However, they can be taken after vaccination to reduce short-term effects such as headaches, muscle aches and fever.

Expert: money from prison stores was diverted to intelligence spending

The former directors of Penal Centers, Nelson Rauda and Rodil Hernández are accused of fraudulent administration for $ 208,000.00 that corresponded to the institutional stores.

A financial expert declared this Friday in the trial against the former directors of Penal Centers, Nelson Rauda and Rodil Hernández that he did not find documentation to justify the destination of $ 208,000 from the institutional stores for intelligence expenses in the administrations of the two defendants.

The technician recalled that the administration manuals of the institutional stores in the penitentiaries establish that the profits or profits of the same must be invested in social programs in favor of the prison population and improvements in the infrastructure of the prisons.

“I did not find documentation to show that this money from intelligence spending would serve to improve conditions for the prison population,” said the expert before the judges of the Fifth Sentencing Court.

He assured that he found several checks in favor of about six alleged employees of Penal Centers who received part of that money, but said he did not know the destination of it.

Before the trial began, one of the prosecutors assured that the two former officials “used funds from institutional stores outside of what the law allowed them.”

He added that the diversion of $ 208,000 in intelligence expenses by Rauda and Hernández has been credited, but that these funds were not backed by the law that regulates institutional stores.

The Prosecutor’s Office accuses Hernández of having fraudulently administered $ 121,238.00; while Rauda is credited with the illegal administration of $ 87,154.00

The financial expert was one of the six prosecution witnesses presented by the Attorney General’s Office against the two former prison officials. Other witnesses for the Prosecutor’s Office were the former Ministers of Public Security, David Munguía Payés and Benito Lara.

They confirmed that the Directorate of Penal Centers sent money from institutional stores to the Ministry of Justice and Public Security for intelligence and counterintelligence, according to judicial sources.

“The Prosecutor’s Office intended with them to establish that there were funds from institutional stores that are private. Now they want to prove that they are private because they are accusing of fraudulent administration, something more paradoxical. And in the case of the truce when they accused Nelson Rauda, ​​they said they were public funds and that is why they put arbitrary acts on him and here they are already private funds, it is a contradiction, ”said Manuel Chacón, defender of the former accused officials.

He added that they also wanted to establish that there were intelligence expenditures that “are special funds that these institutions have that handle risk situations in order to find possible threats against the prison population, against the authorities or against the civilian population.”

Chacón assured that the statements of Munguía Payés and Lara were illustrative in nature “they were not indications, but rather orientation, how things were handled, who were on that date, it was not a matter of imputation, it was simply illustrative. ”.

The defense attorneys offered the statements of four defense witnesses in favor of the two former prison officials.

This is the second trial against Rauda and Hernández, since in the first they were exonerated of charges by the Fourth Sentencing court. The Prosecutor’s Office requested the annulment of the ruling and the First Criminal Chamber agreed with him and ordered that the trial be repeated.

For this second trial, which is expected to end this Friday, the Fifth Sentencing court was appointed.
