The Platform for the Future of the Central Mountain of Leonesa showed once again this Sunday its rejection of the wind farm projects for that area, considering that “they do not want to mortgage the mountains or replace their economic use by a monopoly of multinationals who want exploit a single resource and make the area exclusively dependent on a single company or a single resource “, according to one of its representatives, Sergio Díez.

This was pointed out by the representative of the Platform for the Future of the Central Mountain of Leonesa during the celebration in Pedrún de Torío of a meeting of 25 groups and entities of the province, from different areas, both social, educational, sports and ecological that have decided to join together to “be able to work together against the installation of wind projects in the Leonese mountain” and that in today’s meeting they decided to “set a roadmap to work together”.

“We are not against wind energy, it seems very necessary to us, but in addition to being renewable we remember that it also has to be sustainable, for which it has to be an energy that cannot be located anywhere, but has to cause a minimum impact on the environment “, explained Sergio Diez, while pointing out that” the mountain areas in which the macro-wind farms are projected are not the ideal ones “, which is why” they have generated a rejection in the population very important”.

For this reason, he considered it “essential” that the administrations “take into account that if these projects do not arise from the inhabitants themselves, the territory must be very aware that they are multinationals that come to plunder the resources in some way”, which is why that “they do not have the approval of the inhabitants.”

An approval that is not available because, according to the representative of the Platform, “what is not wanted is to mortgage the mountains, one of the main values ​​that we have, during the 30 years that the concessions of the parks “, since in addition” the areas are used as economic use at the level of pastures, livestock and other types of activities such as tourism, which today generates a fabric that is true that it is small and should be promoted “, but” very diverse “which” is not to be replaced by a monopoly of multinationals that want to exploit a single resource and make the area exclusively dependent on a single company or a single resource “.

Diez recalled that “there are many cases at the national level and in the province of León itself of what this type of monopolies mean in the end the day that companies decide to close and disappear because they are no longer profitable”, so that “the inhabitants become they are once again in an empty territory and without resources “and” they would throw away the last 15 years in which they are working to diversify the economic offer “.

For all these reasons, Sergio Diez set his sights on the actions taken by the Platform at the moment in which the administrative process of the wind farm projects begins in order to present allegations. For this reason, from the Platform for the Future of the Central Mountain of Leonesa, informative talks are being held in different parts of the province, while keeping an eye on these deadlines to start legal processes.

The Municipality arranged a comprehensive control operation to avoid crowds in public spaces in the city and thus prevent coronavirus infections. The actions were reinforced taking into account that today the Student’s Day and the beginning of Spring are celebrated, celebrations that usually attract a large number of young people in squares, parks and beaches in Rosario.

The Secretariat of Control and Coexistence patrols, with the assistance of the police, the key places where meetings are usually held. From very early this morning, inspectors in the area were posted in strategic places in order to verify that the vehicles that circulate in the area have the permits required by the authorities, in order to the government’s provisions to contain the Covid-19 pandemic.

It is worth remembering that last Friday Governor Omar Perotti postponed for a week the limitations on activities such as recreational and family gatherings, as well as gastronomic businesses. Only recreational walks are allowed up to 500 meters from the home, with a mask and respecting social distance. That is, basically, is what the public forces verify today.

Coronavirus: what are the restrictions that are analyzed for Rosario

He exponential increase in positive cases of coronavirus in recent days put all levels of the State to work To define certain restrictions in the province to stop this trend. To the hourly restrictions set by Governor Omar Perotti on Friday of last week, Announcements limiting other activities are expected to be added shortly. For this, the governor and his officials are in contact with the mayors, especially those of the Gran Rosario, and also with national authorities. The announcement of the provincial leader would be this Friday.

A priori, the idea is to restrict outdoor activities: sports and recreation in parks are under scrutiny.

“We are seeing that the boys are going to practice in the clubs but later they get together to chat and that is where the contagion occurs. This activity may be one of those that will be suspended ”, admitted a senior municipal official.

“There are many recreational issues that are also under evaluation. There are not a few officials who do not look favorably on the parks full of people every weekend in Rosario, “he said. The problem is that, if the outings are limited, they fear that more encounters will be generated in closed spaces, which carry more risk .

Precisely, municipal and provincial officials are seeking consensus to shape a strategy that “achieves the greatest health benefit with the least possible economic impact.”

The restrictions would be, in principle, for two weeks. To then evaluate the trend and define how it continues.

“It’s all on the table. There may be several restrictions “, entrusted to The capital another municipal source. He admitted that they are not ruled out restrictions in the commercial area: “We are talking, because we need to significantly reduce circulation,” he stressed.

Two pieces of information were highlighted on the work table that turn on all the alerts: the doubling time of virus infections, which has been drastically shortened and fell in Rosario from 11 days last Friday to 9 this Wednesday; and the occupancy of beds in the public sector, which in the city already exceeds 85 percent.

.

because of the crisis of the coronavirus, you will not benefit from all the advantages…

Fans of amusement parks, animal parks or other complexes, you know the subscriptions are typically quickly recouped, and in addition, they offer advantages in other parks partners with discounts of up to 50 %. In short, two or three days and the account is good ! But the health crisis has somewhat changed the situation…

Partnerships between parks suffer from the crisis. On the side of Pairi Daiza, it is more possible for subscribers to enjoy benefits in the parks foreigners. Not 50 % in Phantasialand or a reduction of 4 euros to the Efteling. At least until a ” new order “…

► The point in the other parks.

► In general, you will not benefit as much benefits in our parks and wildlife…

Mayor Pablo Javkin will announce this afternoon that they will be enabled in rosary beads outputs recreational, which can be carried out only during the weekends but cannot be held in the parks and city squares.

The flexibilization of the activity will take effect from this Sunday, May 24, and you can go for a walk for a period of one hour, and the recreational departure must take place within a radius of 500 meters near the home of each neighbor.

To avoid the conglomeration of people in public spaces and thus manage to maintain compliance with the health regulations imposed by the coronavirus pandemic, in this first stage, walks cannot be made in squares and parks.

The municipal determination aims to preserve the sanitary control that the city reached in the context of the pandemic, and for this reason it decides that the flexibility in this sense should be gradual but progressive, with the prudence that the situation deserves to avoid that there be in Rosario a outbreak of infections.

Mayor Javkin in the course of a conference that he will offer in the next few hours will give more details regarding this activity that from next Sunday can be developed with a corresponding protocol.

These are the challenges New York City faces to reopen – Telemundo New York (47)

NEW YORK – The population density in its skyscrapers, the subway that moves 5 million passengers a day, the crowded restaurants where the tables overlap one another or the massive concerts and plays are the hallmarks of New York, but also its main challenges to recover its activity.

A disaster management expert, economist, virologist and sociologist living in the city that never sleeps tell the lights and shadows of the complex return to everyday life that the Big Apple must experience in the future.

“Density is the key to understanding how New York works, that’s why there are 27,000 restaurants and 10,000 bars and that holds precisely with that density. On any normal night before the pandemic the city had full theaters, full restaurants, 40,000 people in Yankee Stadium watching a baseball game, “recalls sociologist Lisandro Pérez, a professor at CUNY University.

And it is also the key to understanding how the virus spread among its citizens to become the epicenter of the pandemic, with about 15,000 deaths from COVID-19, and more than 5,100 other cases of death that are suspected could be linked to the new one. coronavirus.

“The reopening is going to be done very slowly, in a very methodical way, we have to determine what can be opened safely and ask ourselves where the greatest risks are,” the deputy director of the National Center for Disaster Preparedness at Columbia University assures Efe. , Jeff Schlegelmilch.

THE METRO, KEY TO THE RETURN

The experts consulted agree that the subway is the key to the functioning of New York and its Achilles heel. It is the underground giant that keeps this city of 8.6 million people connected and that, together with the train and the bus, threads a metropolitan area of ​​15.3 million people.

“Can the federal, state, and local governments make people feel comfortable again riding the shuttle? I think that will require a lot of federal subsidies because basically you will have to operate with even more services to keep the trains less crowded and counting with less money, “Nicole Gelinas, an economist at the Manhattan Institute, tells Efe.

For Schlegelmilch it would make little sense that measures were taken in workplaces to reduce the risks of contagion as long as the subway remains a possible threat to the outbreak of the disease.

For this reason, he considers that it will be very likely that those who can telecommute will continue to do so and that greater use of bicycles will be encouraged to move around the city.

MUSICALS IN THE PARKS AND TERRACES IN MANHATTAN?

The lights of Broadway, which attract tourists from all over the world, will be one of the sectors that will later recover, says Gelinas, who does not rule out that the city tries to “mitigate” the impact of the closures by promoting performances in parks and spaces. open where social distance can be maintained.

However, he believes that the biggest challenge will be faced by restaurants “because they have a very low profit margin” due to the high rents they pay.

“Giving up half the tables or even 70%, really means that they are not going to have a viable business,” says the economist, who thinks that one option could be to generalize European-style terraces with tables in streets closed to traffic or on the sidewalks.

With more than 30 million Americans out of work, of whom 1.5 million are in New York, Gelinas also wonders when leisure use will pick up.

“There is a risk that with so many people who have lost their jobs they will not want to go out and spend their money, even if the public health problem has been overcome, or that they will not want to spend a lot of money in stores and restaurants if they feel anxiety about their own economic situation “, he emphasizes.

For the expert, “the last step (of the reopening) will be international tourism”, both because of the travel restrictions and the measures that airlines must take that will affect ticket prices, as well as the slow reopening that the lighthouses of the city’s tourism: Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, museums or Broadway, linked to a high population density.

“I dare to venture that it will be years, not months. I don’t think everything will ever look like it was in January or February, I think we are going to see a very different city, even a little less dense for a while, because there will be many people not wanting to return for a season, “he concludes.

THE KEYS TO REOPENING

Governor Andrew Cuomo has put on the table several key factors that must be met before beginning to relax.

Among them, that hospitals have 30% of free beds both in the plant and in intensive care units and that the city is capable of conducting enough analyzes and has enough trackers to follow up on new possible cases.

For Schlegelmilch, meeting all these requirements “is, at the earliest, several weeks ahead and possibly further away”, something that the authorities also recognize. Although this Friday some regions of the north of the state will begin to reopen economic activity as of this Friday, May 15, Mayor Bill de Blasio does not expect something similar to happen in the Big Apple until June, very gradually.

RELATIVE NORMALITY IN AUGUST WITH SURVEILLANCE AND TRACKING

In the short term, the Spanish virologist Adolfo García-Sastre, who has been working at the Mount Sinai hospital in New York for 30 years, considers that in August “there will be normality” before “possibly” a second wave of the pandemic is registered in winter.

However, he warns that “up to a certain point, that level of normality has to be compensated with sufficient diagnosis to continue monitoring the infection levels and, if they start to rise again, be prepared to be able to deal with it more quickly. of how it has been done so far “.

TRIAL AND ERROR: AT LEAST A YEAR AND A HALF TO RETURN TO THE DEPARTURE POINT

But in the long run, Schlegelmilch argues that to “get back to how things were a few months ago, it is likely that at least a year and a half will pass, but possibly more. What we will see is a slow progress in the reopening of things and then adjustments will be made along the way. “

“It’s going to be a bit of trial and error, which means that whatever is implemented is likely to change, and this will be normal, this will be the new normal for a good year, a year and a half, maybe two years, until these cycles pass and we have a certain level of immunity throughout the population, there are innovative advances in vaccines or therapies or things like that that can help prevent the spread or at least treat the most vulnerable. “

THE DISCIPLINE OF NEW YORKERS AND THE “MONK” GENERATION

As the sociologist Lisandro Pérez explains, he plays in favor of returning to everyday life that New Yorkers are disciplined and that “there is a notion that in public life there are rules that one follows.”

But he warns that “on the other hand, if we are going to try to reduce the density of New York, it will be difficult,” because “it goes against the very basis of what New York is.”

According to this Cuban sociologist based in New York, although the pandemic has aggravated the social and ethnic cracks of minority groups such as Latin Americans and Afro-Americans, it has also favored the development of a political culture that demands “that there be a greater role for the government in ensure the well-being of citizens “and the imposition of measures to prevent this type of situation in the future.

Another of the consequences that it predicts is that, with the passage of the pandemic, young people will be much more sensitive towards social contact, unlike the adult generations who will return to being as before, although being more aware of the danger they pose these types of threats.

He calls this new generation “Monk” in reference to the protagonist of the television series “Monk”, which aired in the US between 2002 and 2009, and who was an “obsessive compulsive detective with regard to germs” .

“I believe that we have a whole generation that is going to develop with the concept that there is a dangerous world out there and that action must be taken,” he concludes.

But everyone agrees that although some New Yorkers temporarily abandon it, Broadway takes a long time to regain its brightness, museums do not start at full throttle and their nights do not open wide, New York will remain the same that resurfaced time and again of so many catastrophes.

Governor Cuomo’s New York Reopening Plan Guide – Telemundo New York (47)

The coronavirus pandemic appears to have peaked in New York State, therefore, the administration of Governor Andrew Cuomo has developed a gradual reopening plan based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and under the supervision of experts in different areas.

Governor Cuomo detailed the reopening plan on Tuesday, which will begin in mid-May in the north of the state with what he described as “low-risk businesses.”

The president pointed out that, to reactivate the economy, it is essential that COVID-19 tests and the availability of hospital beds must be at adequate levels. New York so far has 22,000 deaths and nearly 300,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus.

THE TWELVE ESSENTIAL POINTS OF THE REOPENING PLAN

  1. CDC Guidelines: per the agency’s recommendations, once a region experiences a 14-day decrease in hospitalization rate, it can begin the gradual reopening.
  2. Industries: Businesses in each region will reopen in phases. The first phase will include the opening of the construction industry and factories that represent a low risk of contagion. During phase two they will open certain industries based on priority and level of risk. Companies deemed “most essential” with inherently low risk of infection in the workplace and for customers will be prioritized, followed by other companies deemed “less essential” or those that pose a higher risk of spreading the virus. Regions should not open amusement parks or businesses that accumulate large numbers of visitors outside of the local area.
  3. Protocols in each business: Each establishment and industry should have a plan to protect employees and consumers, in addition to ensuring that the physical workspace is safer and implementing processes that reduce the risk of infection within the business.
  4. Development of health care capacity: To maintain the phased reopening plan, each region must have at least 30 percent of hospital beds and beds in the Intensive Care Unit available after elective surgeries are resumed.
  5. Testing regime: Regions should implement a testing regimen that prioritizes symptomatic individuals and individuals who came into contact with a patient who tested positive for COVID, in addition to frequent testing of frontline and essential workers. Regions must maintain an appropriate number of test sites to accommodate their population and must where and how people can be tested. The region should also use the collected data to track the points of spread of the virus.
  6. Tracking system: there must be at least 30 contact trackers for every 100,000 people. The region should also monitor the regional infection rate throughout the reopening plan.
  7. Isolation facilities: Regions must submit plans for available rooms for COVID-19 positive patients unable to self-isolate
  8. Regional coordination: regions should coordinate the reopening of schools, transportation systems, testing and tracking with other surrounding regions.
  9. Telemedicine: Cuomo’s plan calls for the use of telemedicine as the epidemic is brought under control.
  10. Teleeducation: The state education system would continue with distance learning.
  11. Regional control rooms: Each region should designate a supervisory institution, such as its control room, to monitor regional indicators during the gradual reopening, including hospital capacity, infection rate, and business activity.
  12. Protect and respect essential workers: regions must continue to ensure that there are protections for essential workers.

REOPENING OF THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY

The construction industry and certain factories will be able to reopen from May 15 only in the northern regions of the state.

“Those are two industries that employ a lot of people,” Cuomo said. “We believe that you can take the appropriate precautions (…) these companies can adopt the new normal depending on the number of employees and their own health protocols.”

Cuomo indicated Tuesday during the daily press conference that companies seeking to reopen will be evaluated against essential services standards and how significant the risk of contagion is.

Manufacturing and construction are the source of jobs for at least 46,000 New Yorkers in the central part of the state alone.

SCHOOLS

Will all schools in New York be closed? Governor Cuomo hinted that he will make a decision this week.

The president said that the reopening of the schools will be decided in accordance with the governments of New Jersey and Connecticut.

Cuomo ponders the possibility of reopening schools in certain regions before the end of the school year; however, the reopening of the summer programs remains to be defined.

President Donald Trump on Monday urged the nation’s governors to “seriously consider” reopening schools in an effort to restart the economy, though many states have already recommended not resuming the school year.

PARKS AND BEACHES

Parks, beaches and other attractions will only reopen when deemed safe, Cuomo said.

“The conglomeration is a big problem,” said the president.

As in the educational field, the reopening of the beaches and parks will be coordinated in collaboration with neighboring states.

REGIONAL CONTROL ROOM

The “regional control room” would be made up of state health officials in charge of overseeing the reopening.

This group should ensure that hospital capacity should not be less than 70 percent.

Any red flag warned by regional monitors would activate a “danger button,” leading to a delay in reopening, Cuomo explained.

“Some northern regions of the state have a problem comparable to parts of the Midwest,” Cuomo said. “Especially New York City.”

The president said that testing, tracking and isolation will be key to the reopening.
