“An Argentine judge has compelled a private clinic to administer chlorine dioxide, used as a powerful disinfectant, to a coronavirus patient in a case medical doctors have labelled “a scandal.”
The stepson of the patient brought a legal bid last Thursday, the day after his mother died of Covid-19, for the compound to be given to her critically-ill husband.
Federal Judge Javier Pico Terrero granted the request the same day and ordered the Otamendi y Miroli clinic in Buenos Aires to administer the substance, prescribed by the patient’s doctor, Dante Converti.”
There have now been more than 60,000,000 confirmed coronavirus infections globally and the infection rate is still increasing.
China has seen a continuous rise in cases of contaminated frozen food from overseas and patients of coronavirus infections related to the import industry, which prompted Chinese health experts to suggest an expanded testing scale and a circuit-breaker mechanism for imports like that for international flights.
There have also been continued reports of imported frozen food testing positive. South China’s Guangdong Province reported two new cases of imported food testing positive for coronavirus on Saturday. One is imported from Argentina, and the other is from Russia.
The Chinese city of Jinan said over the weekend it had found coronavirus on beef and tripe and their packaging from Brazil, Bolivia and New Zealand, while two other provincial capitals detected it on packaging on pork from Argentina,
It is not China but Europe the area of the world identified as the main source of spread of Sars-Cov-2, the virus that causes Covid-19.
To say this is a study on the viral genome that was carried out by the Universities of Huddersfield, in the United Kingdom, and of the Minho, in Portugal, and which was published in the scientific journal Microorganisms. Work focused on the 27,000 Sars-Cov-2 viral genomes identified around the world since the start of the pandemic.
Thanks to this analysis, the researchers noted that travel restrictions in Great Britain and the rest of Europe seem to have been “too few” and made “too late” and that the actual spread to America and other parts of the planet are occurred largely through Europe and not from China, where the virus originated.
“It seems likely – the scholars explain – that the travel bans established throughout the world in the second half of March have helped to decrease the number of intercontinental trade, particularly from mainland China, but were less effective between Europe and North America where trade in both directions was visible until April, long after the bans were imposed. ”
People across Argentina have begun speaking of “quaranternity” while enduring the world’s longest lockdown. Residents in Buenos Aires have been cooped up for five months now and their nerves are frazzled.
