Chinese robots feed the infected with coronavirus and virus real time map


Robots are used in China to deliver food to people infected with coronavirus. The task does not include the actual feeding, it just brings food to the door.

A short video shows a robot courier travelling along a hotel-like corridor. On a special tray there are packages with food. The robot pronounces messages in Chinese. People go out of the doors to the corridor and take packages from the tray. Meanwhile, the coronavirus epidemic continues to expand. According to official sources, the total number of deaths from pneumonia in the PRC has surpassed 100.

“The disease is quite dangerous, the number of cases is growing exponentially. The coefficient of geometric progression, which is fixed at the expense of China, if it continues for another month, then the disease can develop into a global epidemic”

The Chinese authorities closed the city of Wuhan in quarantine, and this closure is carried out very radically – by building earthen embankments across the roads.

Not everyone likes quarantine measures. Wuhan Mayor Zhou Xianwan declared on Monday that he is ready to resign if his decisions and measures to close the city in order to prevent the further spread of a new type of coronavirus cause discontent among the population.

In an interview with Central Television of China, he said that speaking about the decision of the authorities to close such a large city, many say that this has not happened in history.

Meanwhile, scientists have created a dashboard showing the spread of Chinese coronavirus in the world in real time. Data is entered from confirmed sources – this will help fight misinformation.

At the beginning of the epidemic, local authorities apparently believed that the situation could easily be brought under control, and sought to prevent the spread of rumors about the disease. Several arrests are known for allegedly “publishing or sending false information on the Internet without verification”, and journalists reported threats and delays after reporting the virus.

As often happens, the result is the opposite. Due to the lack of intelligible information, people tend to panic and saturate the information vacuum on their own. False data can quickly spread: online scare stories about “infected bananas” are already in full swing.

Researchers at Johns Hopkins University have used data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization to map the spread of the disease. As a result, they developed a dynamic map, according to which you can monitor the distribution of 2019-nCov around the world.

As reports become available, the map is updated, tracking the total number of confirmed cases, the number of deaths and patients who have recovered. Each red dot is a focus of the disease, the size of which corresponds to the relative size of the outbreak. If you click on it, you can see information on the corresponding region.

We keep following the developments.

Polar vortex: “wild” winter is coming in the US, Northern Europe and East Asia after the 16th of January

Polar vortex: "wild" winter is coming in the US, Northern Europe and East Asia after the 16th of January 87

In the upper atmosphere above the North Pole, experts saw a rapidly swirling vortex of cold air that could bring severe frosts to the United States, Northern Europe and East Asia. Serious cold snap and snowy weather are expected after January the 16th.

Snowfalls and a cold snap hit South Korea since the start of 2021, hitting historic snow maximums and temperatures. In the country, for the first time since 1964, television and newer communications are sending people cold snap warnings:

The situation is similar in Japan, where a new snow storm hit historic highs:

On January 7, the thermometer In Beijing dropped to -20 degrees Celsius, breaking the 1966 record. In other regions of China, the temperature is also not sugar, and you can only move around in special uniforms:

The cold even reached Taiwan, where the temperature in some areas dropped below freezing point, snow poured down and people realized that rice terraces can be used as a ski jump:

Even more snow went to Spain, where on January 6, 2021, a temperature of -34.1 ° C was recorded – the lowest on record. After that, a snow storm hit the country, which has not been seen for 80 years:

The same thing happens in Canada and in the northern states of the United States:

It seems that after a stratospheric warming, the subpolar vortex began to split:

The vortex itself is a standard phenomenon. However, this time experts were surprised at his movement. It is possible that in the near future it will be divided into two parts. 

Scientists associate the strange behavior with the changed climate in the Arctic, which has become warmer. From September to December, the amount of ice cover decreased significantly.

The polar vortex is a low-pressure region located in the stratosphere and filled with cold air. When the jet stream of air that holds the vortex weakens, the low pressure area moves south. 

As the ice shrinks, more moisture will move inland. It will turn to snow, so snowfalls are expected. Snow, in turn, reflects heat, leading to a cold snap.

Hospital in Naples was evacuated after a new, huge sinkhole appeared

Hospital in Naples was evacuated after a new, huge sinkhole appeared 88

Eyewitnesses said they heard a loud crash at dawn when a huge hole in the ground formed outside the Ponticelli Ospedale del Mare hospital in eastern Naples.

Early in the morning of January 8, 2021, a sinkhole occurred in the parking lot of a clinic in Naples. The depth of the formed cavity is about 20 meters, the total area of ​​the hole is about 2,000 square meters.

No casualties were found at the scene; firefighters say the sinkhole “affected an area of ​​about 500 square meters” and engulfed several cars parked near the hospital.

As the press writes and as a little can be seen from the videos, rescuers and firefighters were running around the pit together with the governor of the area.  But who should be there in the forefront are Italian geologists, since Naples stands in the very center of the volcanic system known as the Phlegrean Fields.

If the surface collapsed, moreover – the surface reinforced with concrete and reinforced from below with some kind of communications, then we are talking about serious soil deformations caused by the activity of magma.

Italy has been in doubt since the summer of 2020, because swarms were observed there in very atypical places in May, and according to the forecasts of old Italian seismologists, who had witnessed many strong earthquakes, it should have boomed in the August region.

Fortunately, nothing bad happened to Italy and there was no big earthquake. But, since there are swarms, it means that something is being prepared, the magma is gathering strength. 

Following this particular sinkhole event – an obvious sign that a major earthquake in Italy is already very close.

A new great pandemic cycle has begun (again) in China

A new great pandemic cycle has begun (again) in China 89

In the first months of 2020, the whole world with a certain fright followed the events unfolding in China, where people fell on the streets during the day and astronauts wandered, and in the evening crematoria began to smoke. And now, with the onset of December, the cycle seems to be repeating itself.

Shunyi area in Beijing, where the authorities announced “wartime status” the day before. As you can see in the videos, thousands of people are lined up in the queue for mandatory testing:

Dalian city, where “wartime” is also declared. Neighborhoods are blockaded, people are walled up in entrances, familiar characters of George Lucas roam the streets:

Chinese ‘rescuers’, before performing a combat mission:

Chengdu City:

Daluo Port, Yunnan – tourists came for adventure and they received the ‘time of their life’ after leaving the ramp:

If something happens in Beijing, it does not mean that tomorrow the same will happen everywhere. However, the trend towards such dynamics is observed and, as the practice of the first wave of the pandemic has shown, all countries and people, to one degree or another, have taken into account the ‘Chinese experience’. 

Therefore, one must think that everything will now be in peace, as in spring – a new global round of the fight against the Covid has begun in China, a new great pandemic cycle!
