Francia registra 3.776 contagios y 17 muertes en 24 horas

Francia registró 17 muertes por la COVID-19 y 3.776 contagios en las últimas 24 horas, lo que supone una aceleración de la incidencia de la enfermedad en el país, indicó la Dirección General de Sanidad del país. En la última semana, el número de contagios registrados en el país se acerca a los 17.000, de los casi 630.000 test que se han efectuado. Sanidad señaló que la tasa de positividad entre el 10 y el 16 de agosto alcanzó el 3,1 % y alertó de que «está en aumento». Desde que comenzó la epidemia, Francia, donde el número de fallecidos se sitúa en los 30.468, ha efectuado más de 6 millones de test, indicó Sanidad. En la actualidad, 4.806 personas se encuentran hospitalizadas por esta enfermedad, 162 de las cuales han ingresado en las últimas 24 horas, 31 en unidades de cuidados intensivos, que totalizan 374 pacientes. Las autoridades multiplican los llamamientos a la prudencia en el país, donde se han registrado 21 nuevos brotes. Toulouse, en el sur y la cuarta ciudad del país, se convirtió este miércoles en la primera gran ciudad que impone el uso de la mascarilla en todos los lugares, medida que entrará en vigor el próximo viernes, afectará a los mayores de 11 años y tendrá una duración provisional de un mes. «El número de casos se ha duplicado en quince días. Tenemos el comienzo del curso en quince días. Toulouse es la segunda ciudad por el número de universitarios, con 115.000», indicó el alcalde, Jean-Louis Moudenc. Agregó que no se están respetando las medidas de prevención, por lo que se impondrán sanciones.

Cars too dangerous and dirty for rich countries are being sold to poor ones
A customer checks out a car at a used car shop in Nairobi in 2017. | Yasuyoshi Chiba/AFP/Getty Images So why are these cars considered good enough for Africa? A new report shows that the European Union, Japan, and the United States are selling millions of used cars to developing countries that come nowhere close to meetingminimum safety and environmental standards. In other words, rich countries are dumping high-polluting cars on poorer ones — which could have disastrous and unjust climate effects. The report, released by the UN Environment Program this month, found that developing countries received 14 million used cars from the EU, Japan, and the US between 2015 and 2018. 70 percent of this total ended up in developing countries, with more than half sent to African countries. Many of those nations don’t require strict inspection rules or safety standards, which is how richer countries are still able to export their junk cars. What’s more, those cars rarely adhere to modern-day environmental standards, meaning they pollute more than newer cars. This is a major problem. The World Health Organization estimates about 90 percent of road accidents occur in low- to middle-income countries, with death rates from such accidents highest in Africa. As lower-quality cars flood into those nations, especially in Africa, the roads are likely to become even more dangerous. Depressingly, that’s only the short-term concern. The longer-term worry is these dangerous vehicles will imperil us all — by potentially exacerbating the effects of climate change. How to curb the deadly spread of “dirty cars” The cars rich countries are sending to poorer ones release more harmful emissions and consume greater amounts of energy than newer models. That’sespecially troubling since two of the exporters, the EU and Japan, have made commitments to become carbon-neutral by 2050. They might reach their goals, but sending problematic vehicles to poorer countries won’t improve dire environmental conditions there. Indeed, less-developed nationsalready suffer the worst consequences of the climate emergency — like food insecurity —despite contributing the least to global warming. Sending crappy cars, then, only addsinsult to injury. Jekesai Njikizana/AFP/GettyImages Secondhand vehicles at a car dealership in Harare, Zimbabwe, in 2012. The UN report’s authors propose a solution to all this. Mainly, they say regulationsshould be tightened in the next few years, and low- to zero-emission vehicles should be exported by richer countries, not cars adhering to fewer environmental and safety standards. Exporting and importing counties have a shared responsibility to regulate the quality of used vehicles and mitigate any negative impacts on the environment. Strong implementation and enforcement mechanisms, like new, enforceable global treaties or conventions could add teeth to regulations and compel countries to comply with them. Such changes require greater international collaboration between the countries that send cars and those that receive them to monitor and regulate the sale of used vehicles and end the practice of “dirty car” exports. “I think the onus is not only on the exporting country, it’s really a joint responsibility,” Rob de Jong, one of the report’s authors who is Head of Mobility at the UN, told the BBC on October 26. The goal should be to ensure that all used vehicles sent to poorer nations are secure and clean while remaining affordable. If that goal isn’t met soon, the dual problems of unsafe roads and worsening climate change will continue.

Why LGBTQ rights hinge on the definition of “sex”
Without federal legislation, the fight for LGBTQ rights has unfolded in the courts and in the White House. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was originally meant to prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, and religion. But in a political maneuver meant to make the bill so unpopular it wouldn’t pass, the word “sex” was added. The strategy didn’t work, and sex discrimination became illegal, opening the doors for women across the country to sue for workplace sexism. But it also set off another fight: to expand the definition of sex discrimination to be inclusive of LGBTQ Americans. Gender identity and sexual orientation aren’t explicitly included in federal anti-discrimination laws, even though 27 states offer some kind of protections against discrimination based on these factors. (Twenty-three states don’t offer any protections at all.) This patchwork system of laws is why activists and politicians have tried to pass the Equality Act, which would extend civil rights protections to LGBTQ people at the federal level. But absent congressional legislation, LGBTQ Americans have had to wage this battle in the courts. Though the Supreme Court decided in June that the Civil Rights Act does apply to transgender and queer Americans, the Trump administration has seemingly come to a different conclusion — and that means there are huge stakes for LGBTQ rights in the 2020 election.
