Ter Stegen takes Barça to the final

In the next elections to the presidency of Barcelona, ​​the winning candidate must ensure the continuity of Messi and also that of Ter Stegen. The German goalkeeper is, along with the Argentine, the club’s greatest asset. Life insurance. Thanks to him, Barça can win the Spain Supercup, the first title of the ‘Koeman era’ after a blank 2019/20. In the Nuevo Arcángel, Ter Stegen saved the Catalans in regulation time, but especially in extra time and in the de penaltis sign. He guessed four and stopped two, two specialists like Bautista and Oyarzabal. Too cruel an end for Real Sociedad, which had put Barcelona on the ropes for much of the semifinal.

In the second leg of the txuriurdin-azulgrana rivalry this season Imanol Sheriff He proved to have taken good marks on the first stake. It is true that Koeman was missing Messi, the queen of the board, and that conditions completely, but the Gipuzkoan coach arranged the chips better. His Real Sociedad is planted in a 5-4-1 that in theory could seem defensive, but in practice it turned out precisely the opposite. He pressed the San Sebastian team to the open grave, without granting a meter, even with a marking to the man, and thus put Barcelona in trouble.

The blood did not reach the river because the Real lacked aim and above all because Ter Stegen saved the clearest. When after the quarter of an hour Isak faced him in one for one, the German goal pounced on his feet and firmly blocked the Swede’s Vaseline attempt. Before he had already caught a Le Normand header from Oyarzabal’s corner kick and later, already at the edge of the break, he would clear his fists from a distant shot from Isak that was poisoning himself.

referee:

Munuera Montero (Andalusian Committee): He showed the realist Le Normand and Barça Dembélé and Mingueza yellow.

incidents:

First semifinal of the Spanish Super Cup, played without an audience at the Nuevo Arcángel de Córdoba.

By then Barcelona was already winning, which overcame the great start of the Real. In the absence of Messi, Dembélé rebelled against the txuriurdin domain. Cheeky as always, successful as not so usual, the Frenchman stretched the Catalans with a dribble. After 25 minutes submitted, Barça took over the game. Pedri, who insistently knocks on the national team’s door, and Frenkie de Jong, who has finally become the leader of the midfield who came from Ajax in 2019, grew up there.

As the first half progressed, the Catalan team enjoyed their first chances. A shot from Dembélé, another distant attempt from Lenglet, a faulty volley from Alba and a pair of arrivals from Braithwaite. A header from this to the center of Mingueza counted as the clearest of Barça, but it was 0-1. Accomplished in his role as buoy man, Braithwaite pocketed the ball inside the area and with his back, with a defender on the hump, he put it in Griezmann’s run towards the baseline. The Frenchman took the center out first and De Jong nodded him foreshortened. Honors for Griezmann, who with five goal passes equals Alba as the top assistant, and also for De Jong, who adds his third goal of the season, and one more of those he scored last year.

Koeman: «I asked who took the last penalty and Riqui said 'I'»

The 0-1 punished Real Sociedad, which had been better for much of the first half, but it would not last. Upon returning from the changing rooms, the San Sebastian team returned brave as in the initial section and this time it did win a prize. Not five minutes had elapsed when, after a great collective action, Oyarzabal put a bad cross that De Jong intercepted with his elbow. Willfully. Incomprehensibly. Penalty and tie again, infallible Oyarzabal.

La Real, better in overtime

The proposal of Imanol Alguacil inevitably granted space for the backlash. In the play after 1-1, De Jong was about to penalize the risk txuriurdin. He did well to uncheck the back of the defense and cut short, although he fell asleep with everything in favor in front of Remiro and when he went to define he ended up kicking Gorosabel. Later, also in transition, Dembélé stayed close to the goal with a left-footed shot. In the final stretch, fatigue took its toll on both teams. In general, they commanded the imprecision and the fear of losing the game before extra time. Merino almost avoided it in the last minute, but his header in a corner ran into Mingueza’s back.

The physicist gave for what he gave and there was a half hour of errors and few occasions. However, not everything like that and the goalkeepers became decisive in overtime. Remiro, taking a shot from Griezmann point-blank. Ter Stegen, with a long shot from Zaldua, a saving hand in a very dangerous boarding school of Januzaj and a scandalous little dove at hand changed in the absence of Januzaj himself, the best revulsive of the Real.

The penalty shoot-out once again raised Ter Stegen, who saved the first two from Bautista and Oyarzabal, guessed Willian José’s that went to the post and Januzaj’s goal. Thus he saved the errors of De Jong, who threw the post, and Griezmann, who sent her to the clouds. Dembélé and Pjanic did not fail and Riqui Puig, which hardly counts for Koeman, marked the decisive to give the Dutch coach his first final.

Bundestag debate on Islamophobia: It would have been so easy

There are anti-Muslim crimes in Germany every day. But the Bundestag does not want to recognize that there is a problem with Islamophobia.

Here you could have positioned yourself against Islamophobia: in the seat of the Bundestag Photo: David Hutzler / dpa

It would have been so easy. The Islam belongs to germany. With these five words, the German Bundestag could have sent an overdue signal on Thursday evening: To the wife of the 26-year-old imam from Ebersbach near Stuttgart, who was beaten to death while walking just before Christmas.

To the woman from Hamburg who wore a headscarf and was insulted and kicked at the end of November. To the relatives of the victims of the racist attacks in Halle and Hanau. To the survivors of the NSU and those threatened by the NSU 2.0. To all people in this country who are marginalized, insulted and attacked year after year because of their religion – or simply because they are mistaken for Muslims.

It would have been so easy. And so sorely necessary. Every day, an average of three anti-Muslim crimes are reported – and the number of unreported cases will be significantly higher. Muslim people are disadvantaged in this country: at school, when looking for accommodation, on the job market. Numerous studies prove this. But the Bundestag did not want to accept the motion for a resolution of the left group.

He did not want to establish that Islam belongs to Germany. And also not: Germany has a problem with Islamophobia. Instead, the MPs praised the government for its efforts against discrimination (Christoph de Vries, CDU / CSU), spoke of violent Muslims (Bernd Naumann, AfD), criticized the “constructed battlefield” anti-Muslim racism (both of them), pointed with a finger Applicants’ prejudices against police authorities (Benjamin Strasser, FDP).

The Greens abstained. That is also a sign

Already clear: Bundestag debates are show, motions from the parliamentary groups are supported in the friend-foe scheme. Government versus opposition, AfD versus democrat: inside. In the 30 minutes that are scheduled for such “debates”, each parliamentary group has just enough time for a few crisp sentences; a little encouragement here, a well-placed punch line, then the counterattack. It is also clear: you do not have to agree to everything that the left-wing parliamentary group demands in the motion. For example, that the countries give up religious education in favor of ethics for all.

And it is clear that denouncing Islamophobia should never mean relativizing Islamist violence. But that there has to be an independent complaints office for police victims. That victims of racist violence need more protection and more advice. That police authorities have to stop their racial profiling problem. Everything overdue.

Nevertheless: It is not about the application and its demands. It is highly unrealistic that declarations of intent by the Bundestag are more than just symbolic politics. But that’s exactly why the Bundestag should have jointly recognized: Germany has a problem with Islamophobia. Christina Buchholz, who spoke for the Left Party, is absolutely right when she calls on the democratic parliamentary groups to position themselves together. Also because not everyone in the federal government wants to say these five words: Islam belongs to Germany.

Some speakers have positioned themselves: Helge Lindh (SPD), who feels shame for the open racism in this country. Benjamin Strasser (FDP), who recognizes that racism destroys chances in life in Germany. Lars Castellucci (SPD), who values ​​and defends diversity in German society. Filiz Polat (Greens), which calls for solidarity and sympathy for everyone affected by exclusion, hatred and racism. Also from the Bundestag.

He should have established that the Muslims in Germany belong to Germany. He does not have. CDU / CSU, SPD, FDP and AfD rejected the application. The Greens abstained. That is also a sign.

Trump’s deplatforming: finally rushed – taz.de

Even liberals fear that locking Trump out of the digital platforms will interfere with freedom of expression. Is that true?

Ding dong – the witcher is gone! Photo: dpa

Suddenly there is silence. No more breaking news because Donald Trump uses 280 characters to report that he slept badly. No more journalism simulation in the live ticker with embedded tweets from the most powerful howling buoy in the world, which spits its lies about the election result online.

What we would not have been spared in the past four years if the deplatforming of the president, the blocking of his accounts on practically all social networks, had already taken place with the first violations of good taste or at least with the repeated violations of the community rules of the platforms – and not just before the Democrats, with the White House and both chambers of Congress, unite all levers to regulate digital capitalists in one hand.

To complain that this is an inadmissible and arrogant interference with freedom of expression is a bit of a matter of fact. After all, it was high time to remove the agitator and countless accounts of his fan base from the digitally dominated mainstream discourse. Yes, they can keep their opinions. They are also largely free to express them. And don’t worry, enough misogyne, racist and other wickedness remain freely available for all those who want to talk to rights so badly that they already shout “Cancel Culture” when barely disguised calls for murder are denounced.

Of course, the digital platforms have too much power. And they hardly use them to civilize discourses. Ultimately, excitement and indignation, but above all right-wing hatred, are their business model. Investors know that too. Since Trump’s account was blocked just ten days ago, the price of Twitter shares has fallen by 20 percent. Doing what is morally right is a bad business from a business perspective.

Busting soon!

It would only be appropriate to relieve the corporations of the burden of such conflict. A help from the now democratically dominated US Congress could be the rapid and consistent implementation of the rules against cartels and monopolies.

The pending lawsuit against the digital corporations must end when they are broken up. For that reason alone, so that never again a handful of CEOs weigh up between freedom of speech and the protection of users in large parts of the network and let figures like Trump last for so long.

MOSCOW, January 20 – RIA Novosti. Russia does not plan to introduce “covid passports,” said Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matvienko. At the same time, Matvienko recommended getting vaccinated, since, in her opinion, this is practically the only way to contain the COVID-19 pandemic. Earlier this week, the head of Bashkiria Radiy Khabirov announced the introduction of “antikidny passports” in the republic – they will be received by people who have antibodies to coronavirus, including after vaccination. According to the authorities, such documents will not only help popularize the coronavirus vaccine, but will also allow to gradually return to normal life. It is assumed that the “antique passport” in Bashkiria will be electronic, in the form of a special QR code, but if necessary, it can be shown from the phone or print. You do not need to submit an application for its receipt – the code will be automatically generated from those who have been vaccinated or confirmed the presence of antibodies. Testing of the project will begin on January 29, and will be officially launched on February 5. Throughout the year, viewers with such passports will receive a 30 percent discount on tickets to state cultural institutions, and the halls will be able to fill up to 70 percent. Current data on the situation with COVID-19 in Russia and the world are presented on the stopcoronavirus.ru portal.

The doctor called the methods of rehabilitation after coronavirus

Patients who have had a serious illness need a whole range of rehabilitation measures

Rehabilitation after suffering a coronavirus depends on the severity of the disease, and the complex of restorative measures should be started as early as possible. Tatiana Neeshpapa, a first category pulmonologist, a general practitioner, a member of the Russian Respiratory Society, told “Arguments and Facts” about the basic rules.

The specialist noted that rehabilitation is not needed for patients who have suffered a mild illness – with damage to the upper respiratory tract, without pneumonia. In this case, the body recovers on its own. The doctor emphasized that the residual cough after coronavirus can remain up to a month and a half, but this is not considered an indication for continuing the course of taking antibiotics. Massage and breathing exercises, as well as mucoactive drugs to facilitate the discharge of phlegm, can contribute to recovery.

Patients with an average degree of pneumonia after improvement of their health and the beginning of positive dynamics of the disease are recommended pulmonary rehabilitation with an individual selection of exercises with a gradual increase in their intensity and duration. Russians who have had a serious illness and were in intensive care need a whole range of rehabilitation measures.

The physician said that pulmonary rehabilitation consists of the following exercises: deep and slow breathing at a frequency of 12-15 times per minute, as well as the correct inhalation and exhalation technique (belly breathing, exhaling with closed lips folded into a tube). Doctors use vibration massage to improve the discharge of sputum and mucus – they tap on the patient’s chest for 10-20 minutes. You should also do breathing exercises in various poses – lying on your stomach, on your side at an angle of 135 degrees, lying on an inclined surface with your head down at an angle of 30–45 degrees to the floor. These measures are necessary to prevent stagnation from appearing in the lower parts of the lungs.

When the patient gets stronger, he can engage in breathing exercises with constant or intermittent positive pressure on exhalation, exercises on an exercise bike in a supine position. After discharge, with good health, doctors advise aerobic exercise lasting 20-30 minutes three times a week for 8-12 weeks. After that, their intensity and duration should be increased. It is best to start with walking, not running and exercise equipment, summed up Neeshpapa.

Wikipedia turns 20 years old: Unevenly distributed knowledge

Wikipedia celebrates its 20th birthday. A lack of diversity and a decline in active users, however, endanger the community project on the Internet.

Wikipedia: to this day one of the most visited websites worldwide Photo: Christoph Hardt / image

There is an idea to “add a little feature to Nupedia.” The little feature that Larry Sanger announced with the subject “Let’s do a wiki” in an internal team email on January 10, 2001, goes five days later, on January 15th, online at wikipedia.com. After just a few years, it will be the largest online reference work in the world, making knowledge available to everyone free of charge. In the beginning, it wasn’t even in the focus of the developers.

The actual project of Wikipedia founders Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger was the online encyclopedia Nupedia, which they founded in 2000. Because specialist articles on Nupedia first had to be sent back and forth between several reviewers, as is common in science, the platform developed very slowly: 27 articles were created in three years.

So Sanger and Wales came up with something new, faster. In the future, articles on Nupedia should still be exchanged laboriously between several reviewers, but as a preliminary stage they were based on the so-called Wiki principle. The term is borrowed from Hawaiian, tere stands for very fast and can be found on express buses at Honululu Airport. On the web, it refers to pages that can be edited collaboratively by users who often act anonymously.

The basic idea of ​​Sanger and Wales, namely that in future not just a few articles but all of them will be able to write on Wikipedia, was the democratization of knowledge on the Internet; he approached the vision of Tim Berners-Lee, who with his invention of the World Wide Web created a free and non-commercial offer that should be available to everyone. Wikipedia is one of the few web projects that has remained non-commercial. Even more: the low entry threshold and the collaborative writing make the reference work a unique joint project on the Internet.

Click instead of scrolling

Wikipedia overtook the actual main feature Nupedia within a few months. In 2003 Nupedia was discontinued. At this point, Wikipedia already had a million posts. To date it is one of the most visited websites in the world. Readers: in order to look something up, they no longer have to leaf through outdated books or even buy them. Instead, thousands of users voluntarily update existing entries, called lemmas, in real time and link them to one another. Within a few years, Wikipedia ousted established encyclopedias such as the Brockhaus or the Encyclopædia Britannica and is now considered a mass medium.

On its 20th birthday, Wikipedia is still the largest digital reference work with 53.73 million articles in almost 300 languages. With more than 2.5 million articles, the German language Wikipedia is the fourth largest edition worldwide. On January 11, it was viewed more than 42 million times. The Wikimedia Foundation, based in San Francisco, is behind the project. It guarantees operation, solicits donations every year, but does not intervene in the autonomous Wikipedias of the individual language areas.

The prerequisite for a successful wiki principle is the participation of as many voluntary authors as possible with different biographies. The problem: The number of active editors has been falling for years. While 8,614 authors were still active in the German-language Wikipedia in 2006, there were only 5,262 active in December 2018. Active Wikipedians: only around 300 people see the “hard core” of the German-language Wikipedia, who write articles. 350 to 400 new items are added every day. Many other active users: meanwhile hardly contribute to the expansion of the content, but correct errors in the texts and provide missing documents; internally in wikipedia, this is also referred to as a “cleaning crew”. Other departments are users who take photos for articles or who can block users who are registered as administrators with extended rights or edit or delete articles.

As the number of authors decreases, the influence of a few increases, researchers found. The scientist Taha Yasseri describes such authors as “super editors” who write excessive amounts of Wikipedia articles and thus keep the joint project alive. It is problematic when “super editors” dominate much-discussed articles, build up an elitist circle among themselves and “defend” their area. South Korean researchers found in a study in 2016 that individual users: inside real trench warfare in sometimes unimportant subject areas; for example, whether the Beatles members should be displayed alphabetically or by relevance.

Complex set of rules

Newcomers who are initially motivated to get involved have an increasingly difficult time because of the complex set of rules. The relevance criteria that have been developed over the years, i.e. whether people, events or topics are of permanent importance or not, and the neutral writing about a matter are demanding, and hours of work can sometimes be deleted without comment. In a study, scientists also consider the harsh climate within the Wikipedia community to be a reason why fewer and fewer women are getting involved.

Wikipedia remains a men’s association that also writes about men more often than women

Most of the Wikipedia authors are made up of men anyway. According to a survey by the Wikimedia Foundation in 2018, it is between 80 and 90 percent. Wikimedia tries to tackle the problem with measures such as collective writing campaigns or the gender gap force. Nevertheless, Wikipedia remains a men’s association that also writes more often about men, as the author Theresa Hannig criticized in April 2019. Because Wikipedia had a list of male but not female science fiction writers, she wrote one herself. Shortly thereafter, their list was proposed for deletion on the grounds that it was “completely redundant”, “a feminism project” and thus superfluous.

This seems all the more questionable in view of the fact that there are lists on Wikipedia about the former supporting actors of the TV series “In allerfreund” or about the furthest shooting distances for killing people by snipers. After heated discussions within the Wikipedia community, Hannig’s list finally went online again. Other authors, however, have been victims of anti-feminist smear campaigns.

Claudia Wagner from the University of Koblenz carried out a study in 2016 on how gender inequality in society is reflected in Wikipedia content and compared the biographies of men and women in the English version. Of the almost 1.5 million biographies on English Wikipedia, only 17.7 percent were women in 2018.

Weaknesses of the system

The researchers concluded that women need to be more prominent and relevant than men in order for a post to be made about them. All Wikipedia entries must consist of several reliable sources that are independent of the author. So no trivialities and disinformation should land on the encyclopedia.

The case of Donna Strickland shows that the system has weaknesses. The physicist won the Nobel Prize in 2018, but at the time she had no Wikipedia entry. This had previously been rejected by an editor because major newspapers had not yet written much about Strickland. Strickland was already recognized as a world leader in its field even before the award ceremony. Your research partner Gérard Mourou had already had an entry for ten years.

An automatically updated list of the collaborative writing project “Women in Red” shows further biographies about women that have not been published due to a lack of relevance. On January 1, 2021, the contribution by the British researcher Fawzia Gilani-Williams to Islamic children’s literature was not approved due to a lack of different sources. Relevant content is removed as irrelevant due to the strict standards.

Larry Sanger wrote in his January 10, 2001 email about the new feature called Wikipedia: “Absolutely anyone else can make any change they want to.”

Wikipedia does not currently do justice to this guiding principle.

Torres Vedras calls for school closings, soldiers on the street and more doctors and nurses

The Municipality of de Torres Vedras asked the Ministry of Education to close schools in the County due to the high number of covid-19 cases. The novelty was revealed by the mayor, Carlos Bernardes, at the public meeting of the Executive on Monday, learned the DN.

The health delegate of the region in cooperation with the vice president and presidents of school groups and civil protection drafted a document justifying the closure of educational institutions, which the mayor said he forwarded to Minister Tiago Brandão Rodrigues.

Carlos Bernardes also defended the need for the Portuguese Army to take to the streets “under a regime of proximity patrolling to give confidence to fellow citizens in close cooperation with the GNR and the PSP”. And he asked for “more nurses and doctors”, revealing that he has already spoken with “who is entitled to this”.

Experts do not understand each other on the subject and the Government has chosen to keep schools open. However, there are many municipalities that want to close the institutions. On Monday, for example, Campo Maior decided to close them.

A few days ago the City Council decided to cancel the Carnival scheduled for February and for the second consecutive year due to the pandemic. The county has five outbreaks in homes (328 infected) and in the hospital in Torres Vedras, where 153 are infected and the situation is increasingly critical, with ambulances with covid-19 patients lining up at the emergency room.

The spectacular images of lava and flames of the vo …

He Etna volcano, on the Italian island of Sicily, erupted overnight Monday leaving incredible images of lava and flames in the middle of the night. Europe’s most active volcano, covering an area of ​​1,190 square kilometers with a basal circumference of 140 kilometers, was coming off four weeks of moderate activity.

As reported in a statement Etneo Observatory, dependent on the organization Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia, Etna was affected on the night of January 18 by a strong explosion in the southeast crater.

https://content.jwplatform.com/previews/YRPqOj4d-buQgiLVC

Around 20:30, the agency said, there was “intense activity” followed by tremors that reached “high values” and lava overflows on several of the mountain’s faces, one of which was heading east, into the Valle del Bove, while another was sliding north.

There was also a cloud of gases and volcanic ash that accumulated in the hills of Etna, reaching the nearby town of Fleri.

https://content.jwplatform.com/previews/z6pJqL7X-buQgiLVC

The explosive volcanic activity began to decrease after 21, while at 06:46 UTC the Osservatorio confirmed that the volcanic cloud was no longer present in the atmosphere and that the lava flows were already in the cooling process.

In this latest statement, the Etneo Observatory reported that in the southeast crater there were still sporadic ash eruptions, but they are quickly dispersed by high-altitude winds. Regarding the tremors, he assured, are still at levels of medium intensity.

New maximum in Portugal: 218 deaths by covid-19 | Coronavirus

Another 218 people died with covid-19 in Portugal on Monday, a new daily high and the first time the number exceeds two hundred in 24 hours. The registration of this Tuesday’s bulletin from the Directorate-General for Health (DGS) represents an increase of 30% compared to the maximum of 167 deaths established the previous day.


Globally, the number of fatalities increased by 2.41%, to a total of 9246 deaths since the pandemic began. Tuesday’s situation report indicates that 10,455 more cases of SARS-CoV-2 virus infection were detected, bringing the cumulative total to 566,958.


With a further increase in the daily number of deaths, the country is already seven highs recorded in the last nine days, having been registering more than a hundred deaths every 24 hours for 12 days, since the bulletin of 8 January, when the country first exceeded one hundred deaths (118). On average, 126 people per day died from covid-19 in Portugal in 2021.

In the first 18 days of this year, SARS-CoV2 is responsible for 2274 deaths – a cumulative value that took 221 days to be reached from the day of the first confirmed death, on March 16, until October 22, when the country reached the total of 2276 fatalities.

Despite this increase in deaths, the overall lethality rate of the disease remains stable, now standing at 1.63%. The age group in which 8116 of the 9246 deaths are found (9.8%) increases to 9.8% for patients aged 70 years and over.


About 69% of deaths to mourn on Monday are from patients aged 80 and over (151). DGS data also indicates the death of two men aged 30 to 39, which increases the number of fatal victims under 40 to 32. There are also 42 deaths in the 70 to 79 age group; 16 from 60 to 69 years; and seven from 50 to 59 years old.

Hospitalizations increased for the 18th consecutive day and returned to a new high, at a time when the country’s health services and professionals are already very close to collapse. There are now 5291 more people hospitalized, 126 more than the previous day, and there are also six more who are in intensive care (670).


The DGS bulletin indicates that there are 10,282 more people recovered. It is the first time that this indicator exceeds 10,000, which is why it is a new maximum registered in the country that exceeds 8477 verified in the situation report of 16 January. The total recoveries in the country thus rises to 421,871. Excluding these cases and deaths, there are now 135,841 active cases in Portugal, 45 fewer than the previous day: the first decline in active infections since 29 December.

Of the 10,176 registered cases, Lisbon and the Tagus Valley were the region with the most infections identified, with 5012 – a new high for the region that corresponds to 47.9% of the national total of new infections, the largest slice of the region since 7 October when it was responsible for 52.3%. North follows, with 2970 cases; the Center, with 1605 new infections; the Alentejo, with 531 cases; the Algarve, with 198 infections; Madeira, with 100 cases; and the Azores, with 39.


As in the new cases, Lisbon and Vale do Tejo account for the largest portion, with 88. There are still 55 more deaths registered in the Center, 51 in the North, 17 in the Alentejo, five in the Algarve and two in Madeira.

The North remains the most affected region since the beginning of the pandemic, with 3811 deaths in 261,287 cases. Lisbon and Tagus Valley follow, with 3332 fatalities and 191,718 infections identified.

The Center has 76,173 infections and 1495 deaths. The Alentejo totals 18,989 cases and 431 deaths. In the Algarve, there are 12,897 cases of infection and 127 deaths. Madeira has recorded 28 deaths and 2844 cases of infection since the beginning of the pandemic and the Azores recorded 3050 cases and 22 deaths.

The 14-day incidence data for municipalities, updated by DGS on Monday, indicate that there are 98 more municipalities in Portugal at “extremely high risk” of contagion: there are now 155, an increase of 170% compared to 57 in Monday of last week. This means that more than half of the country’s counties are now at the highest risk level (more than 960 cases per 100,000 inhabitants). Cuba, Beja district, has the highest incidence rate. With the accounts made to 100 thousand inhabitants (the way the DGS compares municipalities with different population realities), it has the equivalent of 5658 new cases per hundred thousand inhabitants, in 14 days.
