Among the cases of coronavirus on the evening of April 2, Professor Jérôme Salomon, Director General of Health, announces:

  • 26,246 people are hospitalized in mainland France (167 in the overseas territories).
  • 6,399 severe cases in intensive care. of which 35% are less than 60 years old, 60% are between 60 and 80 years old and this is a worrying situation.
  • 382 new patients went into intensive care on April 1. It is this figure that is followed by the authorities to see the results of the containment. The majority of resuscitation cases present at least one potential risk factor for a complication of COVID-19. The two most commonly reported risk factors are diabetes and the cardiac pathologies.
  • 90 people under 30 are in intensive care.
  • 4,503 people died in hospital, 83% of whom are over 70 years old.
  • 12,428 people positive for coronavirus returned healed at their home and confined, 1493 more than the day before. People considered to be « healed » are those who, after 8 days, no longer show symptoms for 48 hours.
  • In the Overseas : 167 people are hospitalized, 36 serious cases in intensive care, 11 people died (3 in Martinique, 7 in Guadeloupe and 1 in Mayotte), 85 left cured and returned to their homes.

All French regions are affected by coronavirus. The most affected are : Île-de-France, Grand Est, Corsica, Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, Hauts-de-France, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and Nouvelle-Aquitaine. All non-emergency medical and surgical procedures have been scheduled in health facilities to increase the capacity to manage Covid-19 cases. The initial capabilities of 5000 intensive care beds in France have grown to 10,000 beds and the goal is to reach 14,000 beds very quickly.

In health establishments, the government has activated several plans:

  • France applies the white plan generalized expanded (internal mobilization plan) since March 19, in all health facilities (public and private), to quickly put in place the material, logistical and human resources essential in the event of an influx of patients in hospitals. Non-emergency consultations and hospitalizations are deprogrammed.
  • France unleashed the blue plan in the Ehpad (Establishment Hosting Dependent Elderly) on March 6. The principle is the same as in hospitals: the head of the establishment must allow « the rapid and coherent implementation of the essential means to deal effectively with an exceptional situation« . The blue plan can induce in particular »containment of residents, users and staff; evacuation of residents, users and staff« .
  • The sanitary reserve and the civic reserve (emergency food aid, exceptional childcare, links with isolated fragile people, local solidarity) are also mobilized.

For the moment, Santé Publique France no longer publishes the number of cases identified by region.

In Ile-de-France, the region most affected by the coronavirus, we count on April 1:

  • Paris : 2,633 hospitalizations, 720 in intensive care, 863 on return home.
  • Try : 687 hospitalizations, 172 in intensive care, 166 on return to their home.
  • Val d’Oise : 730 hospitalizations, 150 in intensive care and 473 on return home.
  • Val de Marne : 1,368 hospitalizations, 241 in intensive care, 446 on return to their home.
  • Seine-Saint-Denis : 1,173 hospitalizations, 228 in intensive care, 358 on return home.
  • Seine et Marne : 565 hospitalizations, 160 people in intensive care, 262 returning home.

To note : The counting of cases is no longer based solely on cases diagnosed biologically, but on epidemiological estimates, as is done for influenza every year (number of consultations, number of serious cases or deaths, etc.). Santé Publique France warns of the difficulties of identification and biological confirmation of all COVID-19 cases and indicates that these figures underestimate the actual number of cases. As part of the transition to phase 3, the recommendations now being to carry out a diagnostic sampling only for certain categories of patients, this underestimation becomes more important.

In the event of four confinement violations within 30 days, the offender faces a fine of 3,700 euros and a maximum of six months in prison. Driving license suspension is also possible. According to a study by Imperial College London published on March 30, France would have avoided 2,500 deaths thanks to confinement and 59,000 deaths would have been avoided in Europe thanks to social distancing measures. The researchers arrived at these results through mathematical modeling.

  • The wearing masks, « a rare commodity » today recalled Professor Jérôme Salomon on March 18, « no sense if you don’t wash your hands since in practice you touch contaminated surfaces. They should be reserved for sick people and health professionals who lack them. For uncontaminated people, they don’t make sense.
  • Hand washing, fundamental: wash hands after coughing, sneezing, before and after preparing food, before eating, after going to the bathroom, after handling animals
  • Apply a social distance of one meter everywhere, all the time (in front of and in stores …). No more shaking hands, no longer kissing.
  • Use antibacterial gel to disinfect hands in the absence of soap and water. If you can’t find them in pharmacies, you can make them.

> More tips to protect yourself from coronavirus

The first symptoms of a coronavirus infection resemble a flu-like condition: fever, dry cough, cold, muscle pain, fatigue... then, when it degenerates, it causes difficulty breathing. « Feel shortness of breath in simple activities at home is a sign that should alert« , recalled Professor Jérôme Salomon on March 27. Don’t wait until it gets worse. This symptom requires a teleconsultation or a call to 15. The last observations of general practitioners and ENT report a loss of smell and loss of taste in infected people, most often in young people having a mild form of the disease. Covid-19 exists in asymptomatic (but patients are still contagious and can transmit the virus) and benign (in 85% of cases) forms. The current recommendations are:

  • If you have symptoms (cough, fever, headache): avoid contact, stay at home, take paracetamol if necessary, call a doctor, do a tele-consultation or call the local hotline.
  • Call 15 if you have difficulty breathing: « If this cough and fever is accompanied by respiratory discomfort which becomes permanent with shortness of breath, difficulty in breathing in and exhaling, a significant worsening of the cough, it may mean a progression of the disease in the form of pneumonia. It is then a potential respiratory emergency and as in all emergency cases, you must call 15 which will take the best measures to respond to the situation « , warns Dr Patrick Aubé, general practitioner.

A interactive map showing the evolution of the coronavirus epidemic in the world in real time was developed by the online mapping editor HERE Technologies. Based on data from the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) of Johns Hopkins University and DXY, this map allows to follow the increase in the number of people infected reported by government agencies, as well as the number of deaths.

The President of the Republic announced on March 16 the closure of the borders of Europe and the Schengen area. Concretely, all trips between non-European countries and the EU are suspended for 30 days from Tuesday March 17. It is generally preferable to postpone trips abroad (including cruises) in view of the development of the Coronavirus Covid-19 epidemic and the restrictive measures taken by certain countries: entry ban on the territory, compulsory isolation, symptom detection measures … for travelers from France. People who have symptoms potentially linked to the Covid-19 coronavirus must absolutely avoid traveling abroad.

Italy is the country most affected by the coronavirus epidemic in Europe with 13,915 deaths linked to the coronavirus on April 2 (more than double observed in China) and more than 115,000 patients in the country. Monday March 9, the President of the Council, Giuseppe Conte, announced the quarantine of the whole territory be the total confinement of the 15 million Italians until April 3 (renewable). Transportation and essential public services continue to operate. Travel is limited throughout the country, except for proven professional reasons or for essential needs.

animals benefit, others in difficulty – Insurance for Pets



During the confinement of billions of human beings, it is animals that take over cities. Ducks were filmed in Paris, a boar in Barcelona (Spain), a puma in Chile or a civet in India. Hungry because usually fed by tourists, the monkeys regularly confront each other on the streets of Lopburi, Thailand. But beware of false information, as with a dolphin announced in Venice (Italy), when he actually swims in a port of Sardinia.

Thanks to the certificates of derogatory movement, domestic animals can also circulate in cities. Those who have been abandoned are worse off. They can sometimes count on good souls, as in Peru, where people give them food. In France, their situation could be complicated. With confinement, the SPA shelters closed their doors.

Why we should read Kropotkin again in times of corona – Krapuul – Insurance for Pets


Opinion, by Johny Lenaerts

Cooperation and mutual aid between animals and between people has shaped the world even more than the struggle for life. According to Peter Kropotkin, it is the crucial principle to give everyone and each other the greatest certainty, the best guarantee of existence and of progress.

Peter Kropotkin (1842-1921) is considered the most important anarchist theorist. He renounced a career in the service of the Tsar, published about his interesting geographical investigations in Siberia, but eventually chose to devote his life to propaganda for anarchism and to provide a scientific basis for it.

In Mutual Aid, first published in 1903, Kropotkin applies his geographic investigations in Siberia and his study of animal behavior to a critical examination of evolution. His arguments remarkably anticipate contemporary ecologists’ view that the world of nature is one of cooperation rather than struggle.

In a series of large-scale essays in the magazine The Nineteenth Century Kropotkin elaborated on Darwinism. He opposed the one-sided interpretation of Darwinism that the expression « struggle for existence » (« struggle for life« And » the survival of the fittest « (« survival of the fittestDeliberately explained way too literally. The resulting social Darwinian concepts such as eugenics and racial doctrine labeled Kropotkin as despicable and dangerous, and he turned against these interpretations and its spokespersons.

Kropotkin showed that in his lifetime Darwin has distanced himself from the « struggle for existence » theory: « The struggle for life rules out a grim war in the bosom of tribes and groups: it cannot be a struggle for individual benefits. It must be a united struggle of the groups against their common enemies and against adverse environmental factors. ”Kropotkin relied on Darwin’s scientific insights when he showed that he had already recognized the significance of social relations in evolution and not the nature in a permanent struggle of all against all.

Kropotkin accepted Darwin’s theory of evolution as a scientific basis for the analysis of human society, but on the one hand he changed the notion of « struggle for existence » and contrasted it with a second, equally important factor of development: mutual aid. He wrote, « He [Darwin] showed how in many animal societies the struggle for livelihoods between individual individuals disappears, how struggle is replaced by cooperation, and how this substitution ultimately leads to the development of spiritual and moral capacities, guaranteeing the species the best chance of survival. He stressed that in such cases the most suitable are neither the physically strongest nor the most cunning, but those who have learned to bond in such a way that they support each other, strong or weak, for the good of the community. (…) Unfortunately, these comments, which could have been the basis of very fruitful research, were eclipsed by the multitudes of facts gathered to illustrate the consequences of a real struggle for existence. « 

According to Kropotkin, through mutual aid many species, of which the individual beings would be defeated in the « struggle for existence », could even survive against others. This social behavior would be the most important « weapon » in the struggle for survival.

Kropotkin linked the development of intellectual capacities to social behavior. For him, sociality is a « main factor of development, both directly, because the improvement of the species is accompanied by the least possible physical exertion, and indirectly, because the development of the mind is favored. » According to Kropotkin, a co- evolution between social behavior and mind takes place. Due to an « increasing sociality, the creation and differentiation of institutions became possible. » Sociality and progress stimulate each other, in the « struggle of all against all » there is no progressive further development. He therefore demanded: « Unite, practice mutual aid! That is the surest means of giving everyone and each other the greatest certainty, the best guarantee of existence and progress, physically, mentally and morally. (…) That is also what man – primitive man – has done, and that is why man has reached the level where we are now. « 

According to Kropotkin, there are two basic aspirations of man: sociality and individuality. Working together on social and individual aspirations in human behavior forms the basis for him to explain the zoological question about the relationship between individual and society. For Kropotkin, striving for sociality and individuality are the mutually complementary basic conditions for a libertarian society. Those institutions in the history of humanity that could combine both aspirations well proved to be the best afterwards. Kropotkin pointed to the tendency towards ever larger associations that respond to the pursuit of mutual aid. The group size of the individual subsystems was thereby reduced. This not only enabled the satisfaction of the urge for individuality, but also strengthened the urge for mutual help through closer contact with each other.

The conception of the peaceful-solidarity nature of man was based by Kropotkin on the proposition that the principle of mutual aid in man’s natural and social history has played a much larger role than the principle of competition. Mutual aid practiced from the beginning of animal and human society would have become a helpful habit and a natural rule of behavior over time.

Solidarity is a necessary condition for comparison with nature or the hostile environment. Mutual aid has developed in early human societies, the hordes and the tribes. Kropotkin: « The first human societies were only a further development of societies that form the real life element of the higher animals. » Solidarity only had something in common with altruism in exceptional cases, it is a natural phenomenon. The first human societies identified their own existence with the tribe or the horde, which was developed and maintained through the necessities of the « struggle for life. » Only a great deal of mutual aid resulted in a corresponding strength of the tribe or the horde, which considerably alleviates the conflict with nature. Solidarity was expressed mainly in total communal property, in the common search for food, in the equitable distribution of food to one another or in support for the elderly and the sick.

Solidarity is a central factor in the progressive social development. Kropotkin conceived mutual aid as a principle of evolution in natural and social history. In the course of human development, solidarity increased and was one of the most important preconditions for human progress. Kropotkin sought to demonstrate that wherever social progress in the sense of the development of productive forces or the development of science and art occurs, « the constructive genius of the masses in their institutions of mutual aid » was the basis for this progress. Kropotkin attributed a strong dynamic to human social drive, which would be able to overcome antisocial social relations. From this he developed a tireless optimism in social progress.

Kropotkin regarded the development factor of mutual aid « as an instrument of progress », that is, the social realization of the principle of solidarity and mutual aid meant progress for Kropotkin. He defined progress as a form of social life that « ensures a particular society and, above all, humanity the greatest happiness. » Kropotkin was convinced that humanity was on the path of this progress, which will ultimately lead to the total liberation of the individual people. In the ideal of anarchist communism he sees the realization of progress.

He understood man as a moral being: « Since man does not live alone, feelings and useful habits develop in him to maintain society and to multiply its species. Without these social feelings, without solidarity, communal life would be impossible, unthinkable. « Without reason, self-respect, compassion and mutual aid, » the species would decay. Since man is a community, the freedom of the individual for Kropotkin can only be a freedom connected with other people, a collective idea and freedom founded on the equality of all.

In his historical analysis of the history of mankind, he sees time and again forms of mutual aid appearing: in the prehistoric horde, in the village communities, in the guilds in the medieval cities and in the extra-state associations in the new age.

– Today we see how mutual aid is resurfacing and taking on thousands of guises: from neighborhood committees, food distributions and cooperatives to free health care, education or public transportation from the bottom up. We see it in the countless people who work for others in the fight against the virus. That is the best guarantee for a liveable world.

* This article is a brief summary of the relevant chapter from Michael Lausberg, « Anarchist Communism. Peter Kropotkin’s Philosophy, Utrecht: Basement Publishing House, 2019. In 2013 a reprint of Peter Kropotkin’s ‘Mutual Aid’ was published by the same publishing house. (www.kelderuitgeverij.nl)

France is in stage 3 of the epidemic of coronavirus since March 14 since the virus is actively circulating throughout the territory and no longer only in certain regions and cities. « The fight is just beginning, the next fortnight in April will be more difficult that the fortnight that has just passed« declared Prime Minister Edouard Philippe on Saturday March 28. Coronavirus contaminations in France exceed 44,000 cases and 3,024 people died in the 717 hospitals mobilized.

It is this figure that is followed by the authorities to see the results of the containment. The majority of resuscitation cases present at least one potential risk factor for a complication of COVID-19. The two most commonly reported risk factors are diabetes and the cardiac pathologies.
  • 3,024 died in hospital, 86% of whom are over 70 years of age.
  • 7,924 people positive for coronavirus returned home cured and confined. People who after 8 days have no symptoms for 48 hours are considered cured.

In Ile-de-France, the region most affected by the coronavirus, on March 29 there were:

  • Paris : 2,217 hospitalizations, 597 in intensive care, 607 on return home.
  • Try : 586 hospitalizations, 141 in intensive care, 133 back home.

  • Hauts-de-Seine : 1,286 hospitalizations, 293 in intensive care, 378 on return home.

To note : The counting of cases is no longer based solely on cases diagnosed biologically, but on epidemiological estimates, as is done for influenza every year (number of consultations, number of serious cases or deaths, etc.). Santé Publique France warns of the difficulties of identification and biological confirmation of all COVID-19 cases and indicates that these figures underestimate the actual number of cases. As part of the transition to phase 3, the recommendations now being to carry out a diagnostic sampling only for certain categories of patients, this underestimation becomes more important.

The first death of the coronavirus occurred in Paris on February 14, it was a Chinese patient of 80 years. As of March 30, 2020, 3,024 people died of coronavirus in France in hospital, according to figures provided by the Director General of Health. « We observe a increase in mortality compared to expected in 5 regions, he said on March 29. In the Grand Est (+ 30%), Hauts-de-France (+ 13%), Bourgogne Franche-Comté (+ 19%), Ile-France (+ 13.7%) and Corsica (+ 39%) , it’s mainly people over 65 « .

Following the vote ofstate of health emergency in France, the travel is prohibited except in the following cases and only on condition of being with a certificate:

  • Travel between the home and the place of exercise of the professional activity, when they are essential for the exercise of activities which cannot be organized in the form of telework or professional trips which cannot be deferred (have the proof of professional trip on oneself).

  • Consultations and care that cannot be provided remotely and that cannot be deferred; care of patients with long-term conditions.
  • Travel for compelling family reasons, for assistance to vulnerable people or childcare.
  • Brief trips, within the limit of one hour daily and within a maximum radius of one kilometer around the home, linked either to the individual physical activity of the people, to the exclusion of any collective sporting activity and any proximity to d ‘other people, either walking with the only people in the same home, or the needs of pets.
  • Judicial or administrative summons.
  • Participation in missions of general interest at the request of the administrative authority

The sanctions were tightened on Sunday March 29: people who do not respect these instructions may have fines ranging from 200 to 450 euros in the event of an increase (non payment within 45 days). In the event of four confinement violations within 30 days, the offender faces a fine of 3,700 euros and a maximum of six months in prison. Driving license suspension is also possible. « The first impacts of containment will not be seen until the end of next week« , said Arnaud Fontanet, professor at the Institut Pasteur, guest of the press point to the Prime Minister in Matignon on Saturday March 28, and recalled that « containment efficiency will be measured from number of people admitted to intensive care« .

Masks « a rare commodity » today.

In health establishments, the government has activated several plans:

  • France applies the white plan expanded generalized (internal mobilization plan) since March 19, in all health establishments (public and private), to quickly put in place the material, logistical and human resources essential in the event of an influx of patients in hospital establishments. Non-emergency consultations and hospitalizations are deprogrammed.
  • France unleashed the blue plan in the Ehpad (Establishment Hosting Dependent Elderly) on March 6. The principle is the same as in hospitals: the head of the establishment must allow « the rapid and coherent implementation of the essential means to deal effectively with an exceptional situation« . The blue plan can induce in particular »containment of residents, users and staff; evacuation of residents, users and staff« .
  • The sanitary reserve and the civic reserve (emergency food aid, exceptional childcare, links with isolated fragile people, local solidarity) are also mobilized.

Since there is no vaccine or drug effective against the coronavirus, the best way to protect yourself is by applying barrier measures.

  • The wearing masks, « a rare commodity » today recalled Professor Jérôme Salomon on March 18, « no sense if you don’t wash your hands since in practice you touch contaminated surfaces. They should be reserved for sick people and health professionals who lack them. For uncontaminated people, they don’t make sense.
  • Hand washing, fundamental: wash hands after coughing, sneezing, before and after preparing food, before eating, after going to the bathroom, after handling animals
  • Apply a social distance of one meter everywhere, all the time (in front of and in stores …). No more shaking hands, no longer kissing.
  • Use antibacterial gel to disinfect hands in the absence of soap and water. If you can’t find them in pharmacies, you can make them.

> More tips to protect yourself from coronavirus

The first symptoms of a coronavirus infection resemble a flu-like condition: fever, dry cough, cold, muscle pain, fatigue... then, when it degenerates, it causes difficulty breathing. « Feel shortness of breath in simple activities at home is a sign that should alert« , recalled Professor Jérôme Salomon on March 27. Don’t wait until it gets worse. This symptom requires a teleconsultation or a call to 15. The last observations of general practitioners and ENT report a loss of smell and loss of taste in infected people, most often in young people having a mild form of the disease. Covid-19 exists in asymptomatic (but patients are still contagious and can transmit the virus) and benign (in 85% of cases) forms. The current recommendations are:

  • If you have symptoms (cough, fever, headache): avoid contact, stay at home, take paracetamol if necessary, call a doctor, do a tele-consultation or call the local hotline.
  • Call 15 only in case of breathing difficulties: « If this cough and fever is accompanied by respiratory discomfort which becomes permanent with shortness of breath, difficulty in breathing in and exhaling, a significant worsening of the cough, it may mean a progression of the disease in the form of pneumonia. It is then a potential respiratory emergency and as in all emergency cases, you must call 15 which will take the best measures to respond to the situation « , warns Dr Patrick Aubé, general practitioner.

A interactive map showing the evolution of the coronavirus epidemic in the world in real time was developed by the online mapping editor HERE Technologies. Based on data from the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) of Johns Hopkins University and DXY, this map allows to follow the increase in the number of people infected reported by government agencies, as well as the number of deaths.

A coronavirus pandemic rages around the world forcing a third of the world’s population to be confined, as of March 30, 2020. the virus has infected more than 745,000 people in the world and makes more 35,300 dead. 177 countries are affected (out of a total of 198 worldwide). The epidemic is now progressing more outside of China, where it started in December 2019.

Le président de la République a annoncé le 16 mars la fermeture des frontières de l’Europe et de l’espace Schengen. Concrètement, tous les voyages entre les pays non-Européens et l’UE sont suspendus pendant 30 jours à compter du mardi 17 mars. Il est de manière générale préférable de différer les déplacements à l’étranger (y compris les croisières) compte tenu de l’évolution de l’épidémie de Coronavirus Covid-19 et des mesures restrictives prises par certains pays : interdiction d’entrée sur le territoire, isolement obligatoire, mesures de détection des symptômes… à l’égard des voyageurs en provenance de France. Les personnes qui présentent des symptômes potentiellement liés au coronavirus Covid-19 doivent impérativement éviter tout déplacement à l’étranger.

L’Italie est le pays d’Europe le plus touché par l’épidémie de coronavirus avec 10 779 décès liés au coronavirus au 30 mars (soit plus du double observé en Chine) et plus de 98 000 malades dans le pays. Le lundi 9 mars, le Président du Conseil, Giuseppe Conte, a annoncé la mise en quarantaine de tout le territoire soit le confinement total des 15 millions d’Italiens jusqu’au 3 avril (renouvelable). Les transports et les services publics essentiels continuent à fonctionner. Les déplacements sont limités sur tout le territoire, sauf pour des raisons professionnelles attestées ou de première nécessité. En cas de non-respect des règles édictées par le décret gouvernemental, les forces de l’ordre peuvent arrêter le contrevenant, qui encourt jusqu’à trois mois d’emprisonnement ou une amende allant jusqu’à 206 euros. Le pic de l’épidémie n’étant probablement pas atteint en Italie, le confinement dans le pays sera (comme chez nous) « inévitablement » prolongé après le 3 avril.

L’épidémie s’aggrave en Espagne avec une hausse de 32% du nombre de décès en un jour et de 25% du nombre de cas. TheSpain comptabilise désormais 7 340 décès et près de 85 000 cas confirmés au 30 mars, c’est le deuxième pays le plus touché en Europe et le quatrième dans le monde. La région de Madrid est la plus touchée, devant la Catalogne, le Pays basque et l’Andalousie. Le Premier ministre espagnol Pedro Sanchez a pris des mesures de confinement de la population depuis samedi 14 mars au soir,  impliquant l’interdiction de circuler dans les rues sauf pour aller travailler, faire des courses (acheter du pain…) et se soigner. Le confinement est prolongé jusqu’au 14 avril. Les forces de l’ordre sont chargées de s’assurer du respect de cette interdiction. Les commerces jugés non-essentiels sont fermés dans tout le pays.

Apparu en Chine en décembre 2019 sur un marché locale de Wuhan, le coronavirus y a fait de nombreuses victimes. Sur les 380 000 malades recensés dans le monde, 82 000 sont en Chine et 3 293 en sont mortes. Au 27 mars, l’épidémie est « quasi-éteinte » en Chine selon le Directeur général de la Santé, Jérôme Salomon. Pékin a annoncé jeudi 26 mars la fermeture temporaire de ses frontières à la plupart des étrangers et va réduire ses vols internationaux dès samedi 28 mars pour éviter l’importation de nouveaux cas de coronavirus et une reprise de l’épidémie.

« Polar bear population has declined 24% in thirty years in Hudson Bay » – Insurance for Pets



#Pollution Alert

Contaminated rivers or soils, abandoned industrial waste … Do you live near a polluted site?
Click here to alert us!

The icy area in the Arctic lost nearly one million square kilometers at the end of 2017, compared to its average area established between 1989 and 2010. And the polar bear (Ursus maritimus), a semi-aquatic and omnivorous marine mammal made for ice floes, today embodies all environmental challenges, in particular global warming. This species is the first to suffer from the melting of its hunting territory.

Biologists spend the season each year in Churchill, in the province of Manitoba, Canada, to observe this bear population. Scientist Geoff York, who works with the Polar Bear International association, has studied it across the Arctic. « The decrease in pack ice reduces the hunting period for polar bears. In spring, in particular, if it does not gain enough weight before it melts, it will not be able to survive until winter », he explains to the magazine « 1:15 pm on Sunday » (replay).

« Today, we went from 1,200 bears to 850 »

« In areas like Hudson Bay, ice also tends to form later. Bears have to wait longer before returning to hunt seals and this affects their ability to reproduce », says the biologist. This year, the ice formed early: « Yes, this is a normal year. If we look at the evolution of the pack ice, there are always good and bad years on the data provided by the satellites since 1979. « 

« The curve is certainly downward, specifies however Geoff York, and we think the same thing will happen to bear populations in the Arctic. If some will stabilize, we will see in some places a gradual fall, a bit like a staircase. Here in Hudson Bay, we’ve seen the population decrease by 24% in 30 years, from 1,200 bears to 850 today … «

Gatherings are also limited to a maximum of 10 people with immediate effect. In addition, all casinos will be closed until further notice starting Saturday morning at 10:00 am.

BARNEVELD Daylight saving time will start next night. At 02:00 the clock goes forward one hour. That means an hour less sleep. And also that it gets a little later in the morning from Sunday and dark in the evening.

Daylight saving time is the time used during the summer. The clock is then moved forward one hour. This is done because the sun rises earlier in summer. By moving the clock forward, the period of daylight and the period that people are awake are most similar. Daylight Saving Time in the European Union runs from the last Sunday in March to the last Sunday in October.

HISTORY First, the daily rhythm was adjusted to the time. For example, the day of the Romans started when the sun rose and ended when it set again. Different proposals were made in 1895 and 1907, but it was not possible to convince everyone, so there was no summer time. Not until the First World War did many countries start using daylight saving time. The oil crisis caused almost every European country to use daylight saving time. This was mainly because we saved money during summer time. When the sun shines, the light simply does not have to be switched on, so street lights and lamps in the house will switch on later.

CRITICAL Many people think a lot an hour ahead. Because the Benelux, for example, is already 35 minutes ahead of solar time, an extra hour is quite a lot. Another criticism of some people is the difficult switchover. Plant growers experience problems with this. The climate for the crop does not change and so the growers have to take this into account. Some domesticated animals may also suffer from the switch to summer time. For example, cows or some pets expect their owners to eat at a certain time and due to summer time this is suddenly changed. Wildlife does not suffer from this, of course. Since in the wild they have nothing to do with something like a clock or time. People, especially children and the elderly, do not immediately adapt. In the week after daylight saving time is set, these people are at risk of fatigue.

Summer time 2020 lasts until Sunday, October 25.

Care at the Alsfeld shelter remains guaranteed – Insurance for Pets


Alsfeld shelter: visit only with controlled access. Photo: Kaminski

VOGELSBERG CIRCLE. The corona virus also causes shelters to take special precautions. The visit is regulated in Alsfeld, and in Lauterbach the decision has been made to stop all traffic.

To protect visitors and employees, the « operation will only continue in a controlled manner », the Alsfeld animal shelter announced on its website. If you want to put an animal in the care of the facility or go for a walk in the afternoon with one of the dogs, you have to register beforehand, by phone or by email. There is a bell on the grounds of the shelter, which can be used to ask for admission. « We make sure that visitors come in individually and that the necessary distance is kept, » explains Dr. Natascha Hirschmann the procedure.

Basically, the operation is now very limited. It is hardly possible at the moment to transfer animals to private individuals. « Of course people have other concerns, at work or with childcare, » says the veterinarian. She draws parallels to other shops where customers are currently absent, with this special feature: « We have to take care of the animals, so the business basically goes on. Only the public traffic is temporarily limited, » she says, emphasizing that this is a snapshot : « We are waiting to see how the situation develops. »

In Lauterbach, of course, the supply of pets must also be guaranteed. « However, since we do not know who carries the virus and who does not, we wanted to be on the safe side and closed the animal shelter to the visitors, » said Christina Scheer. The six zookeepers employed were divided into two groups. In the event that an employee were infected, only one group would have to be quarantined and the second would continue to be used.

With the closure of the animal shelter, a recommendation from the German Animal Welfare Association is being followed, Scheer explains. In Fulda, Marburg and Bad Hersfeld they also decided to close. However, she points out that it is still possible to contact the animal shelter by telephone (answering machine) and email.

The animal welfare association and veterinarian Natascha Hirschmann also point out that animals pose no risk of infection with regard to the corona virus. Nevertheless, it is also important here to comply with the basic hygiene rules, especially not to forget washing hands.

a cat infected by its owner in Belgium – Insurance for Pets


The cat had symptoms like diarrhea, difficulty breathing and infection, confirmed researchers from the Liège medical school. Emmanuel André, the inter-federal spokesperson for the covid-19 crisis in Belgium announced at a press point on Friday that the cat in question had indeed been infected by the coronavirus and transmitted by its owner, reports Sudinfo.be .

From man to animal

« This type of transmission is in the direction from human to animal and not from animal to human. It also required close contact between the animal and its owner on a daily basis, « insisted Emmanuel André. At the moment there is no evidence that animals can transmit the virus to humans. But the opposite is possible, although this is an isolated and rare case. « There is therefore no reason today to think that animals can be vectors of the epidemic in our society », concludes Emmanuel André

The National Council for Animal Protection recommends that sick people respect health rules by washing their hands well before petting their pet to avoid transmitting the virus to them. Health officials have not said whether the cat is still alive.

Coronavirus: your questions and our answers this Thursday – Insurance for Pets


  • Why aren’t all the articles on the La République site accessible to everyone, some of them being reserved for your subscribers?

Many of you have asked us this question in recent days … Mobilized since the start of the health crisis and aware of the challenges of the most clear and precise information possible, our site decided, from the first day of the epidemic, provide free access to all practical articles intended for the public and information relating to health security. Only certain articles, excluding coronavirus news, or even analyzes or reports on the situation remain payable.

We also created a group on Facebook so that all readers can ask their questions to the editor: a group of specially dedicated journalists tries to answer them every day as soon as possible and all these answers are of course systematically free. This group also makes it possible to expose your needs and to propose mutual aid solutions and good plans. « La Rép’ at your service « : the name of this group makes sense.

Since the start of the epidemic, our newspaper companies, which are not in the public sector but are fully aware of playing a form of public service in the dissemination of information, have also been faced with the collapse of their advertising revenues. However, we still have to pay the salaries of journalists who continue to feed the site and the paper newspaper, rotativists who still produce the paper newspaper for our subscribers and readers, administrative staff at all levels, but also to respect the work the hawkers selling the press, who bring the newspaper every morning to our subscribers, and all those involved in the dissemination of the newspaper (the Post Office, drivers who deliver the press deposits). This is why we cannot offer all of our content for free: it is also, for Pyrénées Presse, about preserving its economic survival. We think our readers will understand it.

  • The government encourages the available French people to work in agriculture. Being available and already working in a neighboring field Are there any needs here?

If we believe the ministerial announcement made on Tuesday, « to facilitate recruitment, the Ministry of Labor will set up, with Pôle emploi, a platform dedicated to sectors which have, during this period, specific recruitment needs. Access to this platform will be simplified for applicants as well as for companies and will provide real-time access to recruitment needs throughout France.  » Until it sees the light of day, another such initiative exists, via the wizi platform. It’s called « arms for your plate. »
You can register, fill in your skills and be put in contact with « farmers and the whole downstream chain of the agrifood sector » as needed. « Job seekers or the self-employed whose activity has been stopped are obviously the first to be affected by these job opportunities in the sector. But, in this period of economic slowdown, employees employed by companies in decline in activity are also likely to meet the intense recruitment needs of the sector, « specify the Ministries of Economy, Labor and Agriculture in their press release.

  • I am looking for a DIY store in the Pau region, it seems that they are all closed (although they are among the stores that can open). Do you know one that is open?

At first, the DIY stores were not part of the basic necessities. Then the government changed it and incorporated it. However, all of the brands preferred to close their stores. To compensate for this, some have chosen to favor the withdrawal of goods on site. This is the case of Leroy Merlin or Castorama for example. For others, like Brico Dépôt, only home delivery is still possible. Visit their websites to discover the possibilities as well as the basic necessities available for sale. Indeed, all the references are not for sale.

  • I received a new vehicle the day before the confinement, I absolutely have to get a tax discharge to be able to get my registration card online. I keep calling the tax department who doesn’t answer. Can you tell me if they are part of the institutions that remain open or not, because there is no info on their voicemail …?

During this coronavirus pandemic, the tax services do not receive an audience, unless absolutely necessary, by appointment. To get in touch with them, you must therefore use the secure messaging of your personal space on the impots.gouv.fr site, use the contacts page of the same site or call 0809 401 401 (call not surcharged). So much for the general situation.
But, good news, your personal case can be settled differently. On the impots.gouv.fr site, there are a lot of resources available.
1. Type « quitus » in the search bar that appears on the home page. Several proposals will appear.
2. Click on the last « Covid-19 – Do not travel: Obtain a tax certificate (or tax clearance) following the purchase of a vehicle in another country of the European Union ».
3. You arrive on a new page. Click on the highlighted link mentioning the same proposal as the previous one. A page is displayed, explaining all the procedures for obtaining a discharge.
4. During this confinement period, a new form was implemented. Click on the words « Download Form No. 1993-PART-D », print it, fill it out.
5. Then, you must send it ONLY by email to the DGFIP. On the same page as the one where you found the form, click on « Find contact details for my service » below to find out who to send it to.
6. Do not forget to add the requested supporting documents to your shipment. And voila.
Otherwise, as the Internet is magic, click on this link and start operations at number 4.

  • Can my wife come and shop with me in my vehicle?

Once again, the recommendations are clear: travel must be limited as much as possible. If you do not have a vital need to be with your wife or you are not dependent on her for any problem, go alone. Do not forget to bring your special certificate. If she absolutely has to come with you, each of you should have your own. In addition, the confinement rules require that you go shopping in the nearest shops, once or twice a week.

  • I have a few isolated hens and pigeons in the woods about 3 km from my home. Am I allowed to go and feed and water them every 2 days? Which box should I check on the declaration and should I specify the place where I am going?

It’s a gray area so you have to use common sense … If no one closer can feed them for you, you’re not going to let them die. Therefore, you must go there, trying to space your travels as far as possible. You must check the first box of the certificate « Travel between home and the place of exercise of the professional activity, when they are essential for the exercise of activities that cannot be organized in the form of teleworking or travel professionals who cannot be deferred ”. On the certificate, you just have to declare where you live and when you leave. To avoid problems, try to do it as soon as possible.

  • My children aged 19 and 17 are students on the Basque coast. They chose to confine themselves to it to work quietly. Except that as it will last more than 2 weeks they start to panic a little. I plan to go get them. It’s a family motive for me. You agree ?

Not at all. While the overriding family motive is one of the cases in which displacement is authorized, the government has quite clearly defined it. « It is a question of authorizing displacements whose necessity cannot be called into question (injury of a close relative, accompaniment of a vulnerable or not autonomous person, death of a close family member) ». A priori, your children do not enter these boxes since they live independently

  • What should you check on the derogatory travel certificate to go to the laundromat?

During this confinement period, the laundromats are mostly open. In any case, they are still allowed to open. To get there, if there is no alternative solution, you must check the « essential purchases » box. We advise you to wash your hands well after your visit because a lot of people pass through these shops …

  • With my husband, we would like to walk together with a mask. Is it allowed?

Yes with a certificate. Are allowed « short trips, within one hour and within a maximum radius of one kilometer around the home, linked either to the individual physical activity of people, to the exclusion of any collective sporting practice and any proximity to other people, or to the walk with the only people gathered in the same home, or the needs of pets ”.

  • Hello, my child under the age of one is usually looked after by a childminder. To protect herself, the latter no longer wanted to take in children during the confinement phase. Since my work cannot be done by teleworking, can I benefit from the childcare stop and receive compensation?

On the Health Insurance website, it is stated that the childcare stop is reserved for « employees forced to stay at home following the closure of the establishment welcoming their child, without possibility of teleworking.  »

But unlike crèches and day nurseries, the Ministry of Solidarity and Health « does not demand the work stoppage of nursery assistants ». They can therefore continue to take children into their homes. A fortiori if the parents of these children exercise a priority profession (health professions…). According to the state, teleworking is not a valid pretext for refusing to accept children. However, in order to respect the confinement imposed on all, and in a « spirit of good citizenship », the departmental councils can advise non-priority parents to try to keep their children at home.

However, according to a note from Maternal and Child Protection (PMI), maternal assistants who are elderly or suffering from a chronic illness must contact their doctor to confirm that the activity should be interrupted. Likewise, childminders living under the same roof as relatives with fragile health will have to stop receiving.

Not knowing the situation of your childminder, we can no longer move forward on the subject. It would be best to explain your situation to your employer and see what he offers you.

  • I live in a very small apartment and my parents live 10 minutes from my house by car and have a garden, am I allowed to go out to go to their house during the day in order to get some fresh air in their garden?

« Short trips, within the limit of one hour daily and within a maximum radius of one kilometer around the home, linked either to the individual physical activity of people, to the exclusion of any collective sporting practice and any proximity to other people, or to the walk with the only people grouped in the same home, or the needs of pets ”.

10 minutes. This means that your parents’ home is more than one kilometer from your home. Furthermore, your parents are not part of your household. So no.

  • Hello. We talk a lot about ffp2 masks but are ffp3 effective too?

Indeed, the subject of masks is at the heart of all concerns. Disposable respiratory protective devices filtering against particles, the masks serve to protect the wearer against the inhalation of infectious agents like Covid-19, transmissible by « air ». They also protect against the risk of transmission through « droplets ».
there are several types of masks: FFP1, FFP2, FFP3 (Did you know that? FFP is the acronym for Filtering Facepiece Particles, which would translate into French as a particle filter mask. You can now amaze your friends during confinement) . The efficiency takes into account the efficiency of the filter: the FFP1 masks stop 80% of the particles in the direction of inspiration, the FFP2 masks stop 94% when the FFP3 masks stop 99% of the particles. To answer your question, FFP3 masks are the best as long as you know how to put them on, which is more technical than it seems.
But do not forget that masks are reserved primarily for caregivers. If you have FFP3 masks, make a donation either in pharmacies or in hospitals.

  • Do I have the right to go out of my house to drop glass at the glass container in my neighborhood located a few hundred meters from my home and in this case only check on my certificate because this case is not planned?

Noble intention on your part to want to continue your civic approach to selective sorting. Nevertheless, it is forbidden to go out for this reason there. Remember that the purpose of containment is to slow the spread of the epidemic and sorting cannot be a valid reason for exposing yourself and taking risks. The best gift you could give caregivers is to stay at home. The duration of decomposition of the glass being estimated at 4000 years, the jars or bottles can wait a few days in your kitchen before being deposited at the end of confinement.

  • My husband is diabetic on insulin pump, heart patient, etc. I work at the factory. Can I claim a work stoppage to stay with him knowing that, for the moment, the factory is closed?

You are worried about catching the virus at work and passing it on to your vulnerable spouse. But if the factory in which you work is currently closed, you must be unemployed a priori, so at home. If your factory reopens during the epidemic, it is best to speak to your doctor who treats situations on a case-by-case basis.

the 30 million friends alert alert on the verbalization of volunteers who feed stray animals – Insurance for Pets



With more than 200 associations in the field, the volunteers of the foundation take care of 42,000 stray cats in particular. But this mission does not appear explicitly on the documents of the Ministry of the Interior to derogate from confinement, in the midst of a coronavirus epidemic.

The 30 million friends foundation faces challenges for its volunteers who feed wild animals in cities. The legal service must intervene to avoid fines as much as possible for non-compliance with the confinement rules, which does not openly provide for this type of support, while the Covid-19 coronavirus epidemic continues in France and worldwide.

A real problem for the association, which has signed agreements with the municipalities to feed these animals. It has a network of more than 200 associations in the field and 42,000 stray cats to feed, among others. « It’s very complicated because we recognize volunteering on paper, but it is not always the case on the ground », explains Arnault Lhomme, survey manager of the foundation.

When they intervene, the volunteers are in legal insecurity. Their mission does not appear explicitly on the documents of the Ministry of the Interior. The foundation alerted the Ministry of Agriculture to try to find a solution and break this deadlock. « This week in Vesoul, a nurse was fined by the city police station, says Arnault Lhomme. Fortunately, the mayor with whom we have a partnership has written an employer certificate so that the volunteers can feed the stray cats, but we have many other concerns. « 

Another difficulty for 30 million friends is the closure of the places where stray animals take refuge. In Paris, she is trying to have the Parc de Bagatelle opened, in which there are about 80 cats.

Why we should read Kropotkin again in times of corona – Insurance for Pets


Cooperation and mutual aid between animals and between people has shaped the world even more than the struggle for life. According to Peter Kropotkin, it is the crucial principle to give everyone and each other the greatest certainty, the best guarantee of existence and of progress.

Peter Kropotkin (1842-1921) is considered the most important anarchist theorist. He renounced a career in the service of the Tsar, published about his interesting geographical investigations in Siberia, but eventually chose to devote his life to propaganda for anarchism and to provide a scientific basis for it.

In Mutual Aid, first published in 1903, Kropotkin applies his geographic investigations in Siberia and his study of animal behavior to a critical examination of evolution. His arguments remarkably anticipate contemporary ecologists’ view that the world of nature is one of cooperation rather than struggle.

In a series of large-scale essays in the magazine The Nineteenth Century Kropotkin elaborated on Darwinism. He opposed the one-sided interpretation of Darwinism that the expression « struggle for existence » (« struggle for life« And » the survival of the fittest « (« survival of the fittestDeliberately explained way too literally. The resulting social Darwinian concepts such as eugenics and racial doctrine labeled Kropotkin as despicable and dangerous, and turned against these interpretations and its spokespersons.

Kropotkin showed that in his lifetime Darwin distanced himself from the « struggle for existence » theory: « The struggle for life excludes a grim war in the bosom of tribes and groups: it cannot be a struggle for individual benefits. It must be a united struggle of the groups against their common enemies and against adverse environmental factors. ”Kropotkin relied on Darwin’s scientific insights when he showed that he had already recognized the significance of social relations in evolution and not the nature in a permanent struggle of all against all.

Kropotkin accepted Darwin’s theory of evolution as a scientific basis for the analysis of human society, but on the one hand he changed the notion of « struggle for existence » and contrasted it with a second, equally important factor of development: mutual aid. He wrote, « He [Darwin] showed how in many animal societies the struggle for livelihoods between individual individuals disappears, how struggle is replaced by cooperation, and how this substitution ultimately leads to the development of spiritual and moral capacities, guaranteeing the species the best chance of survival. He stressed that in such cases the most suitable are neither the physically strongest nor the most cunning, but those who have learned to bond in such a way that they support each other, strong or weak, for the good of the community. (…) Unfortunately, these comments, which could have been the basis of very fruitful research, were eclipsed by the multitudes of facts gathered to illustrate the consequences of a real struggle for existence. « 

According to Kropotkin, through mutual aid many species, of which the individual creatures would be defeated in the « struggle for existence », could even survive against others. This social behavior would be the most important « weapon » in the struggle for survival.

Kropotkin linked the development of intellectual capacities to social behavior. For him, sociality is a « main factor of development, both directly, because the improvement of the species is accompanied by the least possible physical exertion, and indirectly, because the development of the mind is favored. » According to Kropotkin, a co- evolution between social behavior and mind takes place. Due to an « increasing sociality, the creation and differentiation of institutions became possible. » Sociality and progress stimulate each other, in the « struggle of all against all » there is no progressive further development. He therefore demanded: « Unite, practice mutual aid! That is the surest means of giving everyone and each other the greatest certainty, the best guarantee of existence and progress, physically, mentally and morally. (…) That is also what man – primitive man – has done, and that is why man has reached the level where we are now.  »

According to Kropotkin, there are two basic aspirations of man: sociality and individuality. Working together on social and individual aspirations in human behavior forms the basis for him to explain the zoological question about the relationship between individual and society. For Kropotkin, striving for sociality and individuality are the mutually complementary basic conditions for a libertarian society. Those institutions in the history of humanity that could combine both aspirations well proved to be the best afterwards. Kropotkin pointed to the tendency towards ever larger associations that respond to the pursuit of mutual aid. The group size of the individual subsystems was thereby reduced. This not only enabled the satisfaction of the urge for individuality, but also strengthened the urge for mutual help through closer contact with each other.

The conception of the peaceful, solidarity-based nature of man was based by Kropotkin on the proposition that the principle of mutual aid in man’s natural and social history has played a much greater role than the principle of competition. Mutual aid practiced from the beginning of animal and human society would have become a helpful habit and a natural rule of behavior over time.

Solidarity is a necessary condition for comparison with nature or the hostile environment. Mutual aid has developed in early human societies, the hordes and the tribes. Kropotkin: « The first human societies were only a further development of societies that form the real life element of the higher animals. » Solidarity only had something in common with altruism in exceptional cases, it is a natural phenomenon. The first human societies identified their own existence with the tribe or the horde, which was developed and maintained through the necessities of the « struggle for life. » Only a great deal of mutual aid resulted in a corresponding strength of the tribe or the horde, which considerably alleviates the conflict with nature. Solidarity was expressed mainly in total communal property, in the common search for food, in the equitable distribution of food to one another or in support for the elderly and the sick.

Solidarity is a central factor in the progressive social development. Kropotkin conceived mutual aid as a principle of evolution in natural and social history. In the course of human development, solidarity increased and was one of the most important preconditions for human progress. Kropotkin sought to demonstrate that wherever social progress in the sense of the development of productive forces or the development of science and art occurs, « the constructive genius of the masses in their institutions of mutual aid » was the basis for this progress. Kropotkin attributed a strong dynamic to human social drive, which would be able to overcome antisocial social relations. From this he developed a tireless optimism in social progress.

Kropotkin considered the factor of development « mutual aid as an instrument of progress », that is, the social realization of the principle of solidarity and mutual aid meant progress for Kropotkin. He defined progress as a form of social life that « ensures a particular society and, above all, humanity the greatest happiness. » Kropotkin was convinced that humanity was on the path of this progress, which will ultimately lead to the total liberation of the individual people. In the ideal of anarchist communism he sees the realization of progress.

He understood man as a moral being: « Since man does not live alone, feelings and useful habits develop in him to maintain society and to multiply its species. Without these social feelings, without solidarity, common life would be impossible, unimaginable. « Without reason, self-respect, compassion and mutual aid, » the species would decay. Since man is a community, the freedom of the individual for Kropotkin can only be a freedom connected with other people, a collective idea and freedom founded on the equality of all.

In his historical analysis of the history of humanity, he sees time and time again forms of mutual aid appearing: in the prehistoric horde, in the village communities, in the guilds in the medieval cities and in the extra-state associations in the new age.

– Today we see how mutual aid is resurfacing and taking on thousands of guises: from neighborhood committees, food distributions and cooperatives to free health care, education or public transportation from the bottom up. We see it in the countless people who work for others in the fight against the virus. That is the best guarantee for a liveable world.

* This article is a brief summary of the relevant chapter from Michael Lausberg, « Anarchist Communism. Peter Kropotkin’s Philosophy, Utrecht: Basement Publishing House, 2019. In 2013 a reprint of Peter Kropotkin’s ‘Mutual Aid’ was published by the same publishing house. (www.kelderuitgeverij.nl)

Off to the net: How retailers are preparing for the corona crisis | Free press – Insurance for Pets


Freiberg.

The inner city of Freiberg on Monday evening: fewer shop windows than before the corona crisis are illuminated, the darkness yawns from the others. Most shops are closed on Tuesday morning. Only pharmacies, opticians, hearing aid shops and stores that sell groceries are open. These include bakeries and pastry shops, the Bergmann butcher’s shop, the two fish shops, the drugstore, the Franke medical supply store, the supermarkets, the Vorwerk Podemus organic store, the two Siggis Sachsenkauf shops, the « Mäc Geiz » market, the Andaluza wine shop and the Arabian shop , Tobacco and liquor stores and vegetable shops. There are often signs that customers should keep their distance and only a limited number are allowed in the store.

Craft businesses are an exception. « Watchmakers can offer repairs, but customers can only enter individually, » says watchmaker Henning Pätz. Only one customer used it on Tuesday. The FTT television technology business in Petersstrasse also offers repair and antenna construction services after telephone consultation. Anyone who walks by during the day can still look forward to a sound system with Joe Cocker & Co.

Many other closed shops, such as the large chains such as « Blume 2000 », « Tchibo », « Intersport » and « Hunkemöller », have internet offers or the possibility to order by phone. The booksellers are in charge. The bookstores « Seitenweise » (www.seitenweise.de) and « Glück auf (www.glueckaufbuch.buchandlung.de) refer to their online offers. Heike Wenige from the paperback shop even gives reading tips in videos on Facebook. (Www.taschenbuchladen.de ) « Delivery is possible to your home or by post, » said Heike Wenige.

Also the Möhrl tea house (www.teehausmörl.de), the Freiberg porcelain shop (www.freiberger-porzellan.com), photographer master Nicole Weber (die-fotomeisterin.de) and the « Freie Presse » (www.freiepresse.de/meinShop) have an online shop. Annette Haber from Bodega Andaluza says: « We have had an internet shop for 20 years. It works great. » In contrast, Anke Krause, the owner of a stationery store, only started building up an online trade four days ago. « My children support me in this, » says the boss of the Freiberg trade association. And she adds: « I can only encourage retailers to get tips from their children, young employees and trainees who are on the go on social media, because they have this competence. » Anke Krause has already served the first customers online. « Now I have time to familiarize myself with it. And I hope that this will help me in the future and that I can use the crisis as an opportunity. » The trade association does not plan to set up its own online shops for dealers. « Discussions are currently underway with the city administration to publish the offers of the shops on the city’s website, » said Anke Krause.

The « Free Press » offers companies and initiatives free help:

Business is increasingly relying on the Internet

An online catalog Liane Rickert, owner of the new shop « Lianes Webdesign und Fotografie », wants to create for the traders in Mittweida together with the trade ring and the city. The owners can offer their products and services there. « I was approached by some dealers whose existence was threatened, » said the entrepreneur. The aim of the online catalog is to bring regional retailers closer to their customers and not to lose the market in the corona crisis. The service will be free for traders. « In order not to burden the dealers financially, I pay for the catalog, » says Rickert. This should later be supplemented by a Stadtonlineshop. Interested parties can contact Liane Rickert until March 25, call 0176 30685055 or info@lianeswerbedesign.de.

France – What is coronavirus? Where is the containment? Understanding everything in 11 questions – Insurance for Pets


In December 2019, an unknown virus from the coronavirus family appeared in central China. Despite the confinement of nearly 60 million people living mainly in Hubei province, this virus has killed 3,270 people.

This Covid-19 epidemic soon spread to other countries, becoming a global pandemic within a few weeks, pushing a large part of the planet to live under cover and in slow motion. As of March 23, this coronavirus has killed 16,961 worldwide, 860 in France.

1. What is Covid-19 coronavirus?

Covid-19 is part of the large family of coronaviruses responsible for simple colds, but also more severe pathologies such as SARS in 2003.

This virus is spread through close contact between two people through the respiratory tract (postillions or sneezing) or through direct contact (handshakes, etc.).

The virus, which can remain active for several hours, can also be transmitted through contact with infected surfaces of the carrier. Scientists say Covid-19 is at least as contagious as SARS-CoV. The incubation time for the virus would be approximately 14 days.

2. What are the symptoms of Covid-19?

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the most common symptoms of coronavirus are fever, fatigue and dry cough. Some patients experience pain, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are generally mild and appear gradually. Some people, although infected, have no symptoms and feel good, says the WHO.

5. Can our dogs and cats catch or transmit the coronavirus?

The National Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health Safety (ANSES) brought together a group of experts which concluded that it there is no evidence that pets and farm animals play a role in the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes this disease. The Agency specifies that if the genome of the virus has been detected in the nasal and oral cavities of a dog in contact with an infected patient in Hong Kong, detection of the genome is not sufficient evidence to conclude that the animal is infected. Passive contamination cannot be excluded, in particular due to the possible survival of the virus on a moist mucosa without necessarily replicating it.

Faced with store closings, short-time working and the need to keep their children, workers are worried about their future earnings. Protective devices exist, but not all losses will necessarily be compensated.

At the end of the month, your employer will pay you compensation for any hours not worked. It represents 70% of your usual gross hourly wage, which is equivalent to around 84% of your net salary. In any case, you cannot fall below the minimum wage (€ 1,219 net for 35 hours).

First day of confinement

It’s a special day … New Caledonia is having its first day of confinement! Since this night midnight and for at least 15 days, the country will live in slow motion. The rule that applies to the entire population is clear and simple: you have to stay at home and limit your travels to the bare minimum to avoid the spread of the virus.

8 positive cases

Three new cases of coronavirus were confirmed last night, that is, eight people infected in a week. The patients were placed in solitary confinement at the Medipole. Investigations are underway to retrace their journey.

A compulsory travel certificate

From today, « everyone must have either a professional certificate or a certificate of derogatory travel ».

The individual certificate can be downloaded and printed or copied on plain paper if you are unable to print it. It must be completed, dated and signed for each non-professional trip or for self-employed workers. ”

Regarding professional certificate : « This is a certificate signed by the employer stating the absolute necessity for the person who holds it to travel to work. It must be completed and stamped by the employer. The employer’s certificate is valid for the entire period it will define and therefore does not have to be renewed every day. It only relates to the commute to work. The certificates must be paper certificates. A tablet or smartphone version will not be valid. « 

Other outings are tolerated:

• « to shop for basic necessities, that is to say to buy food and hygiene products »;
• “for health-related reasons of course”;
• « for imperative family displacements or assistance to vulnerable people or naturally for the care of children in the case of separated families »;
• and « for trips that must be very brief and close to your home, in order to do some physical activity, especially when you live in an apartment, or walk your pet ».

The first economic measures

A plan is still under discussion, but the government announced first steps on Monday. In particular, the Prime Minister was asked to apply the national solidarity plan locally, that is, aid of 56 billion CFP francs to support Caledonian jobs and businesses.

For the government, it is a question of adapting the Caledonian labor law. To allow in particular « the establishment of a partial unemployment scheme on the basis of support over two months, with the same level as in mainland France, to return to just over 80% of the last net salary , based on 4.5 SMG ‘.

Among the other main measures, “the postponement of social security contributions for three months, the postponement of direct tax deadlines, a solidarity fund scheme to support VSEs and SMEs and a dedicated aid fund for crisis management for New -Caledonia, on the various costs linked to this crisis ”.
« A particular focus will naturally be made on local airlines which are now completely stopped and which must be maintained, » the government also announced.

The government will work with the provinces to provide direct assistance to businesses and the self-employed who will be affected by the crisis.

To better communicate on the coronavirus, the government announces the establishment this Monday evening of a dedicated website: www.covid19.nc with all the practical information and situation reports.

Which businesses can remain open?

Stores selling goods and services, as well as shopping centers, can no longer accommodate customers, except for their order picking or delivery activity. But it lists the businesses for which this public reception can be maintained, by derogation.

1. General food stores, convenience stores, supermarkets, multi-market stores, hypermarkets and frozen product stores.

22. Laundries, dyers and ironing activities.
23. Funeral services.

The Tanéo network will continue to ensure continuity of public service, in Nouméa and in Greater Nouméa. But the rotations of Tanéo and Néobus are modified: 70% of the connections are suspended. The SMTU ensures that everything is done to preserve the safety of drivers and users.

Corona contagious through dogs? | DogZine – Insurance for Pets


On Thursday, February 27, the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department of Hong Kong (AFCD) reported that samples taken on February 26 from a dog’s nose and mouth (a 17-year-old dwarf cat whose owner had been diagnosed with COVID-19). These samples were found to be « weakly positive » for SARS-CoV-2. A stool sample was negative.

SARS-CoV-2 is the strain that causes COVID-19. The PCR test used is sensitive, specific, and does not cross-react with other dog or cat coronaviruses. A « weakly positive » result suggests that a small amount of SARS-CoV-2 RNA was present in the samples, but does not distinguish between RNA found from intact virus and RNA fragments.
PCR tests were repeated on February 28, 2, 3, 5, and March 10 with a persistent « weak positive » result.
In addition, so-called gene sequencing of the SARS-CoV-2 virus was taken from the dog, this study was completed on March 12. The results were very similar. A virus isolation test performed on March 12 was negative.

Experts from the School of Public Health at the University of Hong Kong and the College of Veterinary Medicine and Life Sciences at City University of Hong Kong believe that the consistency and persistence of the results indicate that the virus is present in this particular case has possibly spread from the infected people to the dog. The tests were conducted by the laboratories of the AFCD and the School of Public Health of the University of Hong Kong. The latter is an accredited WHO reference laboratory for testing SARS-COV-2.

Two dogs were quarantined due to infected owners, and the above dog was the first. The second dog had negative results from tests for the virus. Neither dog showed signs of illness with COVID-19. Unfortunately, the dog who tested positive died on March 16. The dog was 17 years old and had ongoing health problems likely responsible for this dog’s death, not COVID-19.
The second dog has now been released from quarantine.

On March 19, the AFCD reported that a third dog, a German Shepherd dog that lived with an owner who tested positive for COVID-19, had also tested positive. Another mixed breed dog from the same residence was tested negative. Neither dog showed any signs of illness. Both dogs have been quarantined and are still monitored and tested.

To date, there have been no reports of pets or other animals that have become ill anywhere in the world, and there is no evidence that pets, including pets, can spread SARS-CoV-2. Because the situation is constantly evolving, public and animal health officials may decide to test certain animals out of caution. The decision to test will be made in collaboration between local, state, and federal animal and public health officials.

The current expert understanding is that COVID-19 is primarily transmitted from person to person. This makes the recommendation against Testing of pets for SARS-CoV-2 supported, unless by official order. If dogs or cats show respiratory symptoms, testing for commonly occurring pathogens is advised.

There is an infection. And then?
While there are no reports of pets getting sick with COVID-19, it is recommended as a precaution that people with COVID-19 limit contact with animals until more information is known about the virus. The advice currently is that when someone is sick, another member of the household takes care of walking, feeding and playing with the pet.
Who is (slightly) infected and has a service dog is recommended to wear a face mask and further advice is; do not share food, kiss or hug them; and wash your hands before and after any contact with your pet or service animal.
Although the animal itself cannot become ill, the virus could be transmitted through the animal’s fur, just as a doorknob, for example, could pose a risk of infection if it was touched by an infected COVID-19 patient.

If you want to prepare well, you can provide an emergency kit, with at least two weeks of food for the pet and the necessary medicines. Two weeks is a reasonable period of time for quarantine or self-isolation if contamination is suspected.

It is important to remember that to date no notifications have been from pets or other animals that have become ill with SARS-CoV-2, and there is currently no evidence that pets can spread COVID-19, to other animals or to humans.

Hamster buying: Avoid bloody surprise – Insurance for Pets


Online for 17 hours

Small, active and currently on everyone’s lips: the hamster. Before buying a hamster, it is advisable to deal with the type of hamster carefully, otherwise there is a risk of a bloody surprise.

With their button eyes they look cute. But they are fist-thick behind their ears. And the saying, « Small but powerful! » Says pretty much everything about this rodent. Hamsters are small, but pose some challenges for owners.

Anyone who thinks they can make the youngster happy by buying a hamster is hard to be wrong. Because – as cute as they are – hamsters don’t like to be carried around and caressed at all. So something for observers and not for clumsy children’s hands.

Loner or group type?

Hamsters are considered loners. The famous golden hamster only meets with a partner for reproduction and otherwise lives solitary, i.e. alone. This must be taken into account, otherwise there may be nasty surprises. The cute little animals fight each other to the blood.

The situation is different for the three Phodopus hamsters. They live in groups. « Keeping these animals individually is therefore not animal-friendly and can lead to pathological, scientifically proven changes that are reminiscent of depression or schizophrenia, » says the Swiss Animal Welfare Bulletin.

Group composition complicated

And again: If you think you can just throw a few Phodopus hamsters together, you’re wrong. The dwarf hamster group composition is difficult. Animal welfare cannot make a recommendation. Try it out and good luck is required. And don’t be too happy, because in many cases « fatal biting among animals occurs after half a year or a year, » the fact sheet says.

And if it is a “mause”, it becomes even more complicated, because “socializing adult animals is extremely difficult”. Hamster purchases should therefore be carefully considered in advance.

Two to three years of joy

If you have dealt extensively with the needs and way of life and I am aware that a hamster is not a children’s toy, but an exciting, small, mostly twilight and nocturnal animal to watch, then you can have a good time after buying the hamster spend with the pet.

However, a hamster will not grace the house as long as a cat or dog, because the life expectancy of the little animals is between two and three years. In nature, hamsters reside in self-dug structures up to one meter deep with aisle systems and several chambers. Unless they are looking for food or a partner. When it gets cold, they retreat to their buildings, feed on the accumulated supplies, and hibernate for two.

Very keen to move

This way of life naturally has an impact on the species-appropriate keeping of hamsters in captivity. Swiss animal welfare recommends an enclosure with an area of ​​at least one square meter and a minimum height of 60 centimeters for the animals who are keen to move. The lower part of the hamster enclosure should consist of at least 50 cm high glass or plexiglass, which is completely filled with litter (small animal litter, hay, straw, undyed household paper).

Another important point is the location of the enclosure. This should be in a quiet, somewhat dark place without direct sunlight. There must be peace during the day. One side should be against the wall and draft must be avoided.

Knots and twigs for teeth

As rodents they need suitable rodent material, i.e. branches and twigs of non-toxic shrubs and trees (hazel, willow, beech, unsprayed fruit trees) in order to wear off their constantly growing incisors. In addition to various hiding places, a sand bath also belongs in a hamster enclosure.

Flat stones on the floor of the enclosure help wear out the claws and with climbing possibilities the space of the enclosure can be used three-dimensionally.

Calf bones as « treats »

Hamsters are omnivores (omnivores). Special feed mixes for hamsters contain grains and seeds (millet, hemp seeds, oat flakes, wheat flakes, barley, rye etc.), animal proteins and dried herbs. The grain mixture should not be offered ad libitum and should be supplemented with vegetables (carrots, zucchini, cucumber, broccoli, lettuce) and wild herbs (daisies, plantain).

Hay should always be available. Animal protein (insects, curd, minced meat) should be given to the hamster three to four times a week. Small calf bones, a nut in the shell or millet flasks are suitable as delicacies in between. The little rodents are pretty exciting. If you want to learn more about hamsters, you can find further information here.

Hamster purchases

Hoarding, also known as hamsters, means storing food, clothing or other consumer goods, equipment and things beyond your own needs or the storage required to compensate for fluctuating availability.

Containment: how to occupy your dog? – Insurance for Pets


the essential
Despite the containment measures, walks near the home are allowed for our pets. But staying locked up is sometimes tough for them too. Here are some practical tips to stimulate your dog between the brief daily outings necessary.

During confinement, our pets lack natural stimulation and can quickly become bored and frustrated. Agria, the animal insurance specialist, offers some practical advice to easily stimulate your doggie between the brief daily outings necessary.

For dogs, for example, working the nose is very good brain exercise, and chewing something can be a good way to release stress.

For their ancestors, finding food by walking, hunting and biting was a full-time job and it is not at all natural that dogs today have their food served in a bowl. By allowing your pet to search for part of its food, you contribute to its daily energy expenditure and the dog is only happier!

Some suggestions of games to do with your dog at home

It is quite possible to create the games for your dog yourself, using rolls of toilet paper or small paper wrappers for example. Here are some ideas:

  • Hide a meatball or other treat in a roll of toilet paper. Fold the edges at both ends and give it to him. That should occupy him for a little while.
  • Hide treats in a towel left on the floor. Let the dog sniff his « prey » himself.
  • Place a treat on the floor and cover it with an ordinary plastic box. Your dog will quickly find the solution.
  • A little more difficult: place a treat in a plastic bottle. When your dog overturns the bottle, he will have earned his reward.

All the materials used must of course be safe for your dog and the treats given in controlled quantity to avoid any risk of overweight.

And the ride?

During confinement, it is necessary to have a derogatory movement certificate to walk your dog. The trip must however be « brief » and « close to home ».

You must also be careful not to detach your dog in a place where you can meet other people, in order to avoid, to recover it, having to approach and risk spreading the coronavirus.

Tips for activities with your cat at home

In this period of confinement, your cat tolerates you all day at home, take the opportunity to stimulate him and play with him!

The cat’s daily play and stimulation increase confidence, adaptability and curiosity. An active and stimulated cat is simply a happier and healthier cat.

Teach your cat new tricks

Don’t underestimate the cat’s ability to listen and learn. We will not speak of « training » as for the dog, but with progressive method and exercises, you will be able to try to learn « sit », « stay », « come » to your cat.

With your cat’s favorite treat, present it above his head while standing straight and say « sit ». Praise your cat and give it a reward when it sits down.

Agility

Agility is quite possible with your cat. The simplest thing is to start by jumping through a ring. Another agility exercise is to put up obstacles in the form of a small slalom race in the living room.

To play hide and seek

Why not play hide and seek with your cat? Once hidden, call him to make the sound of your voice prompt him to come. The game of hide and seek is a great way for the cat to use its senses. Of course, don’t forget to reward your cat when it finds you!

VIDEO. Some wildlife experiences the consequences of the Covid-19 epidemic – Insurance for Pets



Deer in town in Japan, monkey fights in Thailand … Wildlife is also affected by the Covid-19 epidemic.

In Nara, Japan, sika deer are an important tourist attraction. Thousands of tourists usually queue to feed them and take a photo with them. But since the health crisis linked to the coronavirus and the travel restrictions imposed by the Japanese government, the park has emptied. The deer then came to venture into the surrounding towns to find food.

A similar situation is unfolding in the city of Lopburi, in Thailand. While Thai authorities expect a drop in attendance of at least 6 million tourists this year, the monkeys at the Phra Prang Sam Yot temple, used to being fed by tourists, were left alone. Clashes erupted between hordes of monkeys searching for food in the city.

In Asia, feeding wildlife is a very popular tourist attraction that provides tourists with close contact with animals. Several NGOs and scientists denounce the harmful impact that these practices can have on wildlife and tourists.

Can pets get or spread the coronavirus? – Radar – Insurance for Pets


Can your dog, cat, rabbit or guinea pig become infected with corona or can they transmit the virus to humans? And are you allowed to touch your pets?

According to Dibevo, the industry association for pet business entrepreneurs, there is no evidence that pets such as dogs, cats, rabbits and guinea pigs can be infected with or transmit the corona virus. Rumor had it of a corona-infected dog in Hong Kong. However, this was not true: the animal turned out not to be infected afterwards. So it is about the owners and not about the animals. This is also confirmed by the University of Wageningen and RIVM.

We inquire with Els Broens, veterinary microbiologist at Utrecht University. Reporter Fons Hendriks video calls with her.

Can your pet be infected with corona or spread the virus?
As far as we know now and what other countries like China and Hong Kong and other countries know is that dogs and cats cannot contract coronavirus. Nor do they play a role in the spread between people, « says Broens.

This does not only apply to pets. Poultry or cows cannot transmit the virus either. The government site states: « So far, there are no indications that farm animals can be infected with the corona virus SARS-CoV-2, or that they are a source of infection for humans. If livestock farmers are infected with the virus, the advice is to avoid farm animals because they are part of the food chain. « 

Can I still go outside with my pet?
Yes, if you have no complaints like fever, cough or cold, you can just walk your dog. If you keep at least 1.5 meters away from others, there is little chance that others can infect you with the coronavirus. « Your dog can also play together with other dogs on the playing field, » says Broens.

Do I have to take extra precautions, extra disinfect the food or water bowl or give my pet extra vitamins?
« In principle, this is not necessary. We say you should follow the general hygiene measures. That’s something you should always do. Don’t get licked in your face. Or the dog cat prefers not in the bedroom or in bed. That is something we have always advised against. And that is still the case in this case. « 

What if there is a general lockdown, can I still go outside with my pet?
« Cats can go outside as usual. But I assume there will be an exception for dog owners, that you can just walk around the block with your dog. « 

Can you catch the corona virus if someone else strokes your pet and you are infected with corona, but you don’t know that?
« It may be the same as touching the same door handle as someone who has corona. So it might be helpful to try to prevent other people from coming into contact with your dog. We still assume that dogs and cats do not play a role in the spread, but the chance is never zero. « 

Is it safe to pet or hug your pet?
« Yes, but don’t let the pet get too close to your face. So don’t let it lick! « 

What if the owner has corona, can he safely take care of his pet?
According to experts, the advice is to avoid contact with pets as much as possible. In such a situation it is better to leave the care to non-infected people. Because if you are infected with corona you should not walk your dog yourself to prevent further spread of the virus.

Can I safely go to the vet with a sick animal?
According to the site of the Royal Dutch Society for Veterinary Medicine (the professional organization for veterinarians) you can simply have a sick animal treated at the vet. Only those who are ill: such as a cold, cough and fever, should stay at home. Also, only 1 companion per animal can go to the vet. And in practice you have to keep a sufficient distance of at least 1.5 meters between other owners and also not shake hands. Veterinarians adhere to the hygiene measures of RIVM in the approach of the owner. And prefer to pay by debit card instead of cash.

Coronavirus: Information for stall visit providers BauernZeitung – Insurance for Pets


Schools are closed, there is no school on the farm. The children are at home – what now applies to the offer of the stall visit?

Aline Gerber is responsible for the stall visit at the Agricultural Information Service (LID) and, at the request of the BauernZeitung, declares that the providers will be informed by email in the coming days.

If possible stay at home

According to the recommendation of the Federal Council, the population should stay at home if possible. There is therefore no reason to conduct a stall visit, the LID writes in a message.

It is important that every company communicates this on site, as not all possible visitors get information online.

Companies with farm shops continue to make their own decisions, as the grocery stores can remain open to this day.

According to Gerber, the following applies:

  • Each company decides for itself in what framework it can and wants to be open to the public
  • Opening times can be adjusted continuously and published in the farmers’ portal. Anyone who needs help can get in touch.
  • When searching for a courtyard, visitors are advised to contact the company in advance for the latest information. There should be a notice box on the Hofsuche website.

The corona virus and farm animals

The Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) provides some information on what should be observed in farm animals in connection with the corona virus.

A basic distinction must be made between transmission and distribution:

  • The Transmission risk is rated as very low. Pets (farm animals or pets) play no role in the course of the current epidemic. However, there is currently not enough information available on this. An infection or a risk of infection cannot be completely ruled out for pets whose owners have contracted the corona virus. But so far, no symptoms of disease have been found in animals, which means that they do not get sick.
  • The virus spread is currently mostly human to human and there is no evidence that farm animals play a role in the spread of the coronavirus.
    The recommendations of the BAG are to be followed on the farm.

Aude: the Arpan animal shelter saturated with calls about the coronavirus – Insurance for Pets


If the site based in Cap de Pla has been closed to the public since Monday, March 16, many owners of dogs or cats call on site, worried that their pets may transmit Covid-19. The officials of the Narbonne refuge formally denied.

Since the beginning of the week, no visitors have passed through the portal of the Arpan refuge in Grand Narbonne. Of course, the activity of the site is not stopped however, teams of trainers continuing to take turns to take care of the 65 dogs and cats present on site. But managers are also very involved in another task: answering the phone.

For several days, the refuge has been literally saturated with phone calls. The cause is in one word: coronavirus. « Shelters across Europe are currently experiencing a considerable number of abandonments as many owners fear that their pets may transport and transmit the Covid-19 », says Anne Boyer, president of Arpan. « We are not yet witnessing this phenomenon in Narbonne, but we are drowning in calls and we feel a growing fear. People ask us how to proceed to abandon their animal! » The refuge is closed to the public, the manager therefore fears to see sooner or later « animals left in front of the gate ».

So before we get there, Anne Boyer sends a clear message: « no, pets cannot infect humans ». As such, it relays information from the World Health Organization (available on the institution’s website), indicating that « there is no evidence that pets, such as dogs or cats, can transmit Covid-19 ».

How does the shelter adapt to the context of the coronavirus? To read on our site in « subscribers » edition, or in our paper edition of Thursday, March 19.

VIDEO. The Gogoclub, a dog hotel in China – Insurance for Pets



The Gogoclub from Qingdao in China is a dog hotel. « In cities, dogs are not at all free. That’s why I wanted to create a place where dogs can run and have fun.« explains Shi Hong, the initiator of the project. She opened this hotel which can accommodate 20 to 30 dogs. »Some people have a dog but do not live in a place suitable for the animal to breed it properly« , she explains.

Dogs can socialize with their congeners and interact with humans. They have access to a 1,300 square meter courtyard. « It is not a question of putting them in a cage and waiting for the return of their master five, ten days or six months later« Shi Hong says. Indeed, animals can be unhappy and even cause depression. She therefore believes that it is necessary for the dogs to be able to leave the house: »See motorcycles, bicycles, children … It is important that they know their environment. « 

In China, it is mainly young people who adopt animals. In 2018, the pet dog market has exceeded 13 billion euros, 70% of which is devoted to consumer products.

UPDATE, 11:03 p.m .: Dispute over vaccine company – Berlin outraged at US desires

In the dramatic coronavirus crisis, there are clashes between Germany and the United States over a report from the « Welt am Sonntag » about the Tübingen vaccine company CureVac. US President Donald Trump is trying to lure German scientists to America with high financial donations or to secure the drug exclusively for his country, the newspaper reported, citing government circles in Berlin. In Berlin politicians and ministries reacted with harsh criticism.

According to the report, the US president is offering the company a large amount to secure its work exclusively. Trump is doing everything possible to get a vaccine for the United States. « But only for the United States, » according to the newspaper, according to the federal government.

According to a report by the newspaper « Mannheimer Morgen » (Monday), an exclusive contract, for example with the USA for a corona vaccine is out of the question for CureVac. « We want to develop a vaccine for the whole world and not for individual countries, » said the managing director and co-founder of the main investor dievini Hopp BioTech Holding, Christof Hettich.

The SAP co-founder and patron Dietmar Hopp and the entrepreneur Friedrich von Bohlen are also among the founders and managing directors. The pharmaceutical company CureVac has been researching a vaccine against the novel corona virus since January. In addition, Hopp firmly held on to the company, the employees and also the main location in Tübingen, said Hettich.

Federal Minister of Economics Peter Altmaier (CDU) in the ARD program « Report from Berlin » on Sunday evening praised the Tübingen company for not being available for US advances. It is a great decision and a great position.  » It is « good news that management has spoken plain text ». Germany is « not for sale, » said Altmaier.

UPDATE, 10:39 p.m .: RoMed clinics continue to restrict access and visits

In general, the following applies to all RoMed clinics: As few visits to the sick as possible.

Visits to the palliative and children’s ward are regulated separately. People who have had contact with Covid sufferers are not allowed to enter the clinics. Persons who have been in a risk area may not visit patients in the RoMed clinics within 14 days after leaving this area.

The same applies to visitors with symptoms of illness such as cough, runny nose or fever. Access to the RoMed Klinikum Rosenheim is only possible for patients and visitors via the main entrance in Pettenkoferstrasse. Via the entrance to House 4, only the pediatric medical practice is open to patients during their opening hours.

The clinic’s pediatric emergency service can be reached at night via the main entrance. Access to the central emergency room is only open to patients.

UPDATE, 9:37 p.m .: Bavaria plans to declare a disaster

The catastrophe could be declared in Bavaria from Tuesday due to the corona virus. The final decision will only be made on Monday morning, the German press agency learned on Sunday evening from government circles in Munich. The « Nürnberger Nachrichten » had previously reported on this.

Organizational issues are primarily associated with the declaration of a disaster. These are necessary so that the country can take appropriate measures in the fight against the corona virus, government circles said. The disaster should initially apply for 14 days.

In addition to the familiar steps such as closing all non-systemically relevant businesses, the Bundeswehr and its hospitals should also be included in the crisis plans. The Ministry of Health – the newspaper reports – should also record all respirators in the country and develop an emergency concept of how so-called temporary hospitals can be set up. Accordingly, they should be built in exhibition halls, sports halls and concert halls if the number of sufferers increases drastically.

UPDATE, 9.30 p.m .: Weekend overview of the corona crisis in Bavaria

The Bavarian Ministry of Health informed on Sunday that two further coronavirus deaths have been confirmed in Bavaria. A ministry spokesman said in Munich: « According to the Neu-Ulm district office, a death is an over 80-year-old patient with previous illnesses. » The man died on Sunday night.

A second death was confirmed according to the State Office for Health and Food Safety (LGL) in the district of Oberallgäu. She is an over 80-year-old patient who also died on Sunday night.

Further details can be communicated to the media via the respective district offices.

The first coronavirus death in Bavaria was confirmed in Würzburg on Thursday. According to the University Hospital of Würzburg, the patient was over 80 years old with previous illnesses and need of care.

Bavaria’s Minister of Health Melanie Huml called on the public again on Sunday to protect themselves and others from infections. Huml emphasized: “All events that are not absolutely necessary should be canceled or postponed. In addition, all private contacts should be restricted as much as possible. Furthermore, travel of any kind should be avoided. « 

In Bavaria, new general directives in connection with the new corona virus came into force on Saturday. For example, there is now a restriction on visiting rights for hospitals, nursing and disabled facilities. Exceptions are possible, for example when visiting children, in an emergency or in the care of the dying.

Furthermore, persons who have been in a risk area may not enter these facilities within a period of 14 days after leaving this area. On Friday evening, the Robert Koch Institute also classified the Austrian state of Tyrol and Madrid in Spain as corona virus risk areas.

Another general rule regulates the closure of schools, day care centers, day care centers for children and day care centers decided on Friday. Huml emphasized: « This step was necessary in the fight against further infections. Of course, the consequences of such drastic measures must be carefully considered. Therefore, there will be emergency care for certain groups of people – for example for the children of nurses. »

UPDATE, 8:21 p.m .: « Exit restrictions » in Austria

The Federal Government is calling for an « exit restriction » for all of Austria. Chancellor Sebastian Kurz told APA on Sunday. There are only three reasons for exceptions to leaving the house: professional work that cannot be postponed, urgently needed errands (food) and if you have to help other people.

Das Coronavirus bremst Bayern immer weiter aus. Ab Montag bleiben für die kommenden fünf Wochen landesweit alle Schulen, Kindertagesstätten und Krippen geschlossen – am 6. April gehen in Bayern die Osterferien los. Die Staatsregierung verhängte am Freitag zudem weitreichende Auflagen für den Besuch von Krankenhäusern, Alten- und Pflegeheimen.

Am Sonntag soll die Kommunalwahl aber trotz der steigenden Infektionszahlen stattfinden. Flächendeckende Schließungen von Gaststätten, Bars und Restaurants wie in anderen Ländern sind bisher nicht geplant. Die Meldung einer Münchener Zeitung, Bayerns Innenminister Joachim Herrmann (CSU) habe mit den Münchener Wirten vereinbart, die Gastronomien für zwei Wochen zu schließen, entpuppte sich als Ente.

Ministerpräsident Markus Söder (CSU) erklärte dazu: « Es kann passieren, dass Gasstätten nicht öffnen, aber nur deswegen, weil sie keine Kundschaft mehr haben ». Hier müssten Lösungen gefunden werden.

Einige Bars und Diskotheken in unserer Region entschieden sich trotzdem für eine Schließung, obwohl es keine offizielle Verordnung gibt. So bleiben zum Beispiel bei der Lausa Bar in Rosenheim, beim Uschihaus in Tüßling oder beim Sinners Club in Mühldorf die Türen vorerst geschlossen. Entgegen erster Informationen hat die Seidls Bar in Rosenheim geöffnet.

Auch der berühmte P1 Club in München hat sich dazu entschlossen, zumindest  dieses Wochenende nicht zu öffnen.

« Da es keine Medikamente gibt, sind wir darauf angewiesen, andere Maßnahmen zu ergreifen, um die Ausbreitung zu verlangsamen », sagte Söder noch am Freitag in München.

UPDATE, 9.03 Uhr – Therme Erding ab sofort geschlossen

Paukenschlag in der Corona-Krise: Die Therme Erding ist ab sofort – also bereits ab Samstag (14. März) – komplett geschlossen. Das verkündet das Unternehmen auf seiner Homepage.

Update, 8.30 Uhr – Tirol und Madrid zu Risikogebieten erklärt

Das Robert Koch-Institut hat wegen der Ausbreitung des neuartigen Coronavirus jetzt auch das österreichische Bundesland Tirol zum Risikogebiet erklärt. Ebenfalls zum Risikogebiet ernannt wurde die spanische Metropolregion Madrid. Das RKI ergänzte seine Liste der internationalen Risikogebiete, auf der bereits Italien, der Iran, die Provinz Hubei in China, die Provinz Nord-Gyeongsang in Südkorea und die Region Grand Est in Frankreich standen, am Freitagabend um Madrid und Tirol.Bundesgesundheitsminister Jens Spahn (CDU) empfahl allen Reisenden, die in den vergangenen zwei Wochen in Italien, in Österreich oder in der Schweiz waren, zwei Wochen zu Hause zu bleiben.

VIDEO. Between the fennec and the fox, here is the otocyon – Insurance for Pets



#Pollution Alert

Contaminated rivers or soils, abandoned industrial waste … Do you live near a polluted site?
Click here to alert us!

It is a little-known canine that roams the plains and savannahs of Africa … It looks like a cross between a fox and a fennec, but it is a species apart.

This animal is found in two different areas on the continent. There, this small animal measuring 46 to 66 centimeters long leads a burrowing life, digging a network of galleries in which a breeding and monogamous couple shelters with their young. The territory of a couple generally extends between 0.25 and 1.5 square kilometers.

It feeds mainly on insects and arthropods: termites and dung beetles can make up 80% of its diet, and it depends on these insects for its water supply. He also uses his large ears, measuring between 11 and 13 centimeters long, to detect the presence of these insects around.

Also, among all the canines, it is the one with the most teeth. It is a consequence of its insectivorous diet, which made its teeth smaller and more numerous: between 46 and 50. Marginalized by certain local people for its fur, it is not considered in danger of extinction and its population is stable.

It is the otocyon, also called the bat-eared fox.

The women of the Blue Swimming crab fishing in Indonesia – Insurance for Pets


In the romantic image of a fisherman at sea, this is always a man, but in reality women do almost half of the work in fishing.

Hundreds of millions of women worldwide make a critical contribution to every step of the process. Women repair fishing gear, organize fishing trips and often arrange safety, hygiene, regulations and fisheries management. Women harvest seaweed and seafood along the coastlines. And it is mainly women who work on preparing and processing the catch, from the moment of landing to packaging.

Women are in charge here

The Blue Swimming Crab is selected and canned in Ms Aik’s factory. Valued at over US $ 300 million annually, the Blue Swimming Crab is one of Indonesia’s most valuable exports. Thanks to high demand from the US, where the crab is a popular ingredient in crab cakes and salads, the crab industry has tripled in value since the early 2000s. The crab industry in Indonesia currently employs more than 90,000 fishermen and 185,000 women.

Although the Blue Swimming Crab is caught along all coastal waters of Indonesia, the vast majority comes from the Northern coastline of Java, the economic center of the country. At the eastern tip of Java is the island of Madura, which gives East Java a striking shape of the claw of a crab.

In the village of Padelegan on Madura, the Blue Swimming Crab is the backbone of the local economy and the largest employer. For many women, such as factory worker Siti, the crab is an economic vein. « Crabs have been an important part of my family for a long time, » she says. “The work the crab offers has brought us a lot of financial stability. Thanks to this income, we can also pay for the children’s school in addition to the household. ”

The threats to the Coral Triangle

But there may be a threat on the horizon. The seas around the Padelegan coast form part of the Coral Triangle, an area so rich in marine life that it is also referred to as the “Amazon of the Seas”.

These waters are so full of life that Indonesia is the second largest fish producer in the world after China. Across the islands, more than six million people work in the fishing industry, and fish provide more than half of their daily needs for animal protein. However, as demand for fish and seafood continues to rise, some Indonesian species are overfished and now endanger local welfare, food security and marine biodiversity.

To help the Blue Swimming Crab fishery tackle these hazards, Fish for Good is working with local authorities, fisheries and other key partners to make fishing more sustainable. Initiated by the Marine Stewardship Council and powered by the National Postcode Lottery players, this four-year program improves traceability, data collection and fisheries management to keep these fisheries thriving. The main partners of Fish for Good Indonesia are the Indonesian Blue Swimmer Crab Association (APRI), whose members jointly process 85% of all Blue Swimming Crab in Indonesia, and the MMAF, the Ministry of Maritime Affairs.

Towards sustainability

Women are the driving force on the mainland of Padelegan. As soon as the catch arrives at the Adaifah cooking station, where the crabs are steamed, it is her job to inspect and record the catch.

Good data is the basis of efficient fisheries management, which is why it collects information about who the fisherman is, how much was caught and which gear was used. In order to ensure that the catch complies with the rules, she never accepts crabs less than 10 cm long and the so-called “carrying” females, crabs that carry eggs.

« Our buyers don’t want to scratch undersized, » she says. “If fishermen accidentally catch crabs that are too small, they must immediately return to the sea. If we accept crabs that are too small, this will not be sustainable for the longer term. ”

The catch is steamed in the cooking station and spread over a handful of small processing plants on the island called “mini-plants”. Siti is part of the entire army of female workers who manually pluck the meat from the crab. It is very important to her to be part of something sustainable. « The sea and underwater life is part of all of us, » she says. « It is up to us to ensure that we create a sustainable future for our children »

Outside on the water, the fishermen also contribute. Many of them have switched to a new type of trap, the “Bubu” trap. These are folding bamboo traps. Unlike the Gillnet, Bubu does not damage the crab and ensures maximum freshness. The trap mainly selects larger crabs, minimizing bycatch of other species and smaller crabs.

A gender-equal fishery

Padelegan’s fishermen and employees are proud of what they have achieved so far and are hopeful that they will be able to apply for the blue MSC label in the long term. They also hope that the contribution that these women make to fishing will gain more recognition in the future.

Hundreds of millions of women in fisheries worldwide remain unseen and undervalued … excluded from decision-making despite their expertise. Siti in particular would like to see this changed, and believes Padelegan’s successes can be a good foundation to build on. « We hope that our work here is a source of inspiration to other women in the world, especially those who work in the fishing industry. »

Daily life: what is allowed and what is no longer allowed? – Insurance for Pets


Can I still walk my dog? Can I still go to the sauna? How do I get groceries? Ingrid, Louis and Marije want to know that.

What about the measures?

All events involving more than 100 people will be canceled throughout the Netherlands. This concerns, for example, (premier league) competitions, but also theater performances and exhibitions in museums.

These measures will remain in force until March 31:

  • Stay at home with health complaints, such as a cold, cough, or fever
  • Events with more than 100 visitors will be canceled (including all premier league matches)
  • Limit visits to the elderly and frail
  • People are called upon to work from home as much as possible
  • Vulnerable people can better avoid public transport
  • Schools go not close

Can I just run errands?

All supermarkets in Italy are closed except supermarkets and pharmacists and Belgium has closed all until April 3. The Netherlands has not yet taken such far-reaching measures. Social activities such as shopping, dining out in restaurants or a visit to the sauna can therefore continue as usual. Shopping is certainly no problem.

But, Prime Minister Mark Rutte warned yesterday afternoon, people have to estimate the risk themselves. « If you are a little older or in fragile health, we think it is wise to avoid large groups until the end of this month. »

And to what extent is that still possible?

Sports umbrella NOC * NSF has advised to cancel all sports events until March 31. This includes all competition, practice and training matches. Among other things, the Rotterdam marathon has been postponed.

Most gyms are open, but with extra precautions. For example, no high fives are being distributed at a national gym chain for the time being and employees are making extra rounds along the devices to keep that school.

Furthermore, everyone is of course free to work for themselves in the forest or through the city.

Is traveling on public transport still safe?

The cabinet advises that the elderly and the vulnerable should not travel by public transport.

Travelers are asked to observe additional hygiene rules. Such as washing hands regularly, coughing and sneezing inside their elbow, using tissue paper and not shaking hands.

Can I visit grandpa and grandma this weekend?

The corona virus threatens loneliness for the elderly. However, healthy people are also called upon to make limited visits to vulnerable people (such as the elderly). Whether it is still wise to let grandparents look after the grandchildren is up to the parties involved. The cabinet will not comment on this.

According to the ANBO elderly association, it is ‘very intense’ for the elderly if they receive fewer visitors. « A visit can be a highlight of the day or a week, » said the union. He has created a special telephone number so that the elderly do not have to be lonely: 0348 – 46 66 66.

But what if you are sick?

Then the situation changes. The National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) urges people in isolation not to leave their homes.

Patients in home isolation will have to call on family, housemates or acquaintances for their shopping.

Before patients can go outside again, they must be free of symptoms for at least a day. That is to say: no fever, no colds and no coughing.

What about my dog?

Pet owners who have the coronavirus are advised to transfer care of their animal to housemates. Patients living alone or those admitted to the hospital are advised to have someone else take care of the animal. If that is not possible, the dog or cat can, for example, be taken to a shelter.

According to Wageningen University, there is no reason to quarantine pets of corona patients.

Nestlé to Sell Majority Stake in Yinlu | Business consumption – Insurance for Pets


Nestle (NESN 90.13 -6.24%) JPMorgan is said to have commissioned the sale of its Chinese unit Yinlu, reports the Bloomberg news agency, citing insiders. The peanut milk business should therefore be valued at around $ 1 billion. Nestlé does not comment on rumors of possible divestments.

The world’s largest food company is working with the US investment bank to prepare the possible sale, Bloomberg writes. Among the potential buyers are Chinese food and beverage companies such as Dali Foods Group Co., Hangzhou Wahaha Group Co. and Uni-President China Holdings Ltd., the source said.

Nestlé plans to sell a majority stake in Yinlu and may keep a small stake to oversee the production of the ready-made Nescafé coffee that Yinlu co-produces in China, said one of those present. The company is currently planning to submit offers for the first round in late April or early May, but the outbreak of the corona virus could delay the process, according to the population.

Yinlu was acquired by Nestlé in 2011. The company tried to tap demand in China, but faced weak growth a few years later. On the occasion of the presentation of the annual figures, CEO Mark Schneider said that they were not satisfied with the development.

Under Schneider, Nestlé is increasingly focusing on the growth categories of coffee (coffee 131,705 0.04%), Water, pet and baby food products. By contrast, less fast-growing and lower-margin businesses are to be renovated or sold.
