City Hall admits that children are more protected without going back to school. Decision comes out on the 22nd



São Paulo – The government of the mayor of the São Paulo capital, Bruno Covas (PSDB), acknowledged today (13) that students in the municipal school system are more protected at home, without going back to school. Data from the 4th phase of the Serological Survey with the families of children enrolled in schools in the city show that 98% of them maintain adherence to social isolation and the use of a mask. The city also presented the review carried out by the Municipal Health Secretariat of studies on Pediatric Multisystemic Inflammatory Syndrome, which, although rare, has already claimed victims in the municipality and in the state of São Paulo, pointing to one more risk potential for the reopening of schools.

In the case of the inflammatory syndrome, the Assistant Secretary of Health, Edjane Maria Torreão, presented data from a follow-up study with 570 children who had covid-19, conducted in the United States. Of the total, one third of the cases were mild, but another third manifested the inflammatory syndrome at some point. In Brazil, a study in Amazonas identified 11 cases of the disease. Two children died. Another, carried out by the Medical School of USP, with 371 children, identified 66 positive cases of covid-19 and six cases of inflammatory syndrome.

Edjane also presented data that confirm that children, even asymptomatic, have a higher viral load than adults who presented severe cases and needed to be admitted to Intensive Care Units (ICU). And that the number of asymptomatic children is double the number of adults in the same condition: 70% and 35%, respectively. On the other hand, the prevalence of the disease among teachers is equivalent to that of home office workers (7.8%), which shows a great potential for contamination among professionals.

The data from this phase of the Serological Survey also consolidate that the prevalence of the disease among children is higher than in adults: 16% in students, 13% in adults. However, the city considers that this is due to contamination that occurred at home, of children being infected by adults who need to go out to work for example.

Despite this, Covas said that only next Thursday (22) he will present the decision on the return to school in the city of São Paulo. “We should have the result of the first phase of the census that we are carrying out with all teachers and students in the municipal network next week, on Thursday of next week. With that, we must have the decision in relation to the classes from the 3rd of November, if it continues with the extracurricular activities or if we will have any return (from the regular classes) ”, he affirmed.

11 million Bolivians will have free vaccine against covid




São Paulo – Former Bolivian President Evo Morales commented, this Wednesday (21st), the importance of youth in the electoral process that led Luis Arce, from the Movement to Socialism (MAS), to victory in the presidential election of October 18 . “Young people saw what it is like to live under the right and the dictatorship. And they reflected on how we were with our revolution and how we were under the coup, ”he said. Evo was overthrown by a coup in November 2019 that brought lawyer and TV presenter Jeanine Áñez to the presidency. With 90% of the official count completed. at 3:40 pm on this Wednesday (21st), Luis Arce approaches 55% of the valid votes. “What was at stake on October 18 was to go back to the past with the privatists or continue to the future with the nationalists,” said Evo Morales in an interview with Breno Altman (watch below).

Asked how the country will recover from the economic crisis aggravated by the coronavirus pandemic, he replied that it will be with the presence of the state. The Bolivian guaranteed that Bolivia will normalize relations with China, Cuba, “some European countries” and Russia. “Those who once asked for market, market, market, now say State, State State, in the face of the pandemic.”

Vaccine against covid-19

“We are going to face the pandemic. When we have the vaccine, we will distribute it to all 11 million Bolivians for free. ” According to him, tackling the pandemic and the crisis will be done through joint work between the federal government, governors and mayors.

In Brazil, President Jair Bolsonaro not only boycotts health policies, but goes further. On Wednesday, he forbade the country to buy the Chinese vaccine CoronaVac, which would have 46 million doses through negotiations with the state of São Paulo announced the day before by the Minister of Health, Eduardo Pazuello. “I don’t give up my authority”, justified the Brazilian’s head of state.

South America

About neighbors in South America, Evo Morales highlighted the “profound ideological and programmatic difference” between MAS and the president of Chile, Sebastián Piñera, from Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, and the former Argentine president Mauricio Macri. But it was diplomatic. “Whether it is left or right, we must work together respecting our differences. South Americans cannot be isolated, ”he said.

Morales acknowledged that he may have been mistaken as president. “I was wrong, but I am a human being,” he said. “Now we have experience in public management, and we are going to take Bolivia forward, united, organized.” He affirmed that the new government will make “a pact of union between the parties of the right, businessmen and workers, a great national agreement, to raise the economy”, adding: “The moment is to consolidate our process of change, democracy does not end on election day ”.

Evo has been in Argentina since December 2019, where he went into exile after the coup in the country. He said that the return to his country still has no forecast. In an interview with BBC Brazil, the president-elect was not positive about the possible participation of the ex-president in the new government. “If Evo Morales wants to help us, he will be very welcome. But that does not mean that Morales will be in the government. It will be my government, ”he said.
