Sanidad pide a las comunidades que restrinjan la actividad de los prostíbulos por la pandemia

¿Es un prostíbulo un local de ocio? El ministro de Sanidad, Salvador Illa, lo tiene claro. Lo es y como tal debe acogerse a las mismas medidas de control de la pandemia dictadas para las discotecas y otros locales de ocio. En la última reunión con las comunidades autónomas, Illa quiso zanjar un debate que estaba creciendo en las redes sociales: si cierran el ocio nocturno, ¿por qué no los prostíbulos donde el contacto directo es más que evidente y la utilización de mascarilla es cuestionable?.

Según ha podido saber ABC, el ministro pidió a los consejeros de Sanidad restringir la actividad de prostíbulos y locales de alterne para evitar la aparición de brotes de difícil rastreo, como ha ocurrido recientemente en la localidad castellanomanchega de Alcázar de San Juan. Ocho "trabajadoras" de un prostíbulo dieron positivo y está siendo muy difícil contactar con los clientes y someterles a pruebas de diagnóstico precoz.

Pese a la enérgica petición de Salvador Illa, la medida no resulta fácil de aplicar. Este tipo de negocios se suelen enmascarar como hostelería o incluso como hoteles y entonces es difícil de aplicar las medidas sanitarias a las que se acoge el ocio nocturno.

El cierre de discotecas y los nuevos horarios de bares y restaurantes -hasta la 1 de la madrugada-, así como la prohibición de fumar en la calle, se acordó por unanimidad en un Consejo Interterritorial de Salud extraordinario hace poco menos de una semana. Aunque entonces no se detalló qué ocurriría con los locales de alterne. Quizá por ello, el ministro de Sanidad se vio obligado a especificarlo ayer. Pidió «contundencia» para controlar la pandemia un día que se marcaba un nuevo máximo de casos diarios, rozando los 4.000 nuevos positivos.

Nuevas medidas para la vuelta al cole

Al ministro de Sanidad, Salvador Illa, también le inquieta el mes de septiembre, con la vuelta el cole y la aparición de los primeros catarros y gripes, una tormenta perfecta con el covid circulando a toda velocidad por España. A los consejeros les trasladó esta inquietud pero no ofreció soluciones. Se limitó a emplazar a las comunidades autónomas a adoptar un nuevo paquete de medidas de salud homogéneas de cara al inicio del nuevo curso escolar, así como para abordar la temporada de la gripe.

Son las comunidades las que tendrán ahora que trabajar técnicamente las soluciones antes de ponerlas en común en una nueva reunión con los consejeros de Salud y de Educación.

Illa insistió en la importancia de adoptar un nuevo paquete de acciones y urgió a los responsables de las consejerías a preparar el nuevo curso cuando apenas quedan dos semanas para que comience.

Adelantar la vacuna de la gripe

También pidió a las autonomías adelantar la vacunación de la gripe y acordar una fecha única para la campaña en toda España. La vacuna de la gripe no protege frente al nuevo coronavirus pero podría reducir la presión en los hospitales y ayudar a los sanitarios a distinguir casos de dos afecciones muy parecidas. Es decir, alguien vacunado de la gripe si tiene síntomas gripales es muy probable que esté infectado con Covid-19.

Adelantar la vacunación puede ser una buena estrategia aunque se teme que la vacuna de esta temporada no pueda estar antes de la primera semana de octubre por mucho que se corra.

“We got our young man back”: A rescue in Nigeria gives Trump a late foreign policy win
President Donald Trump speaks to the press outside the White House on October 30. | Sarah Silbiger/Getty Images US special forces on Saturday rescued an American hostage kidnapped in Niger. An American hostage is safe and in the care of the US State Department, the Pentagon said Saturday, after a successful early morning rescue operation by US special forces in northern Nigeria. The hostage, Philip Nathan Walton, was abducted by armed kidnappers in southern Niger on Tuesday this week; his captors reportedly demanded a ransom of more than $1 million for his freedom. According to the Washington Post, Walton, 27, was rescued by members of the elite Seal Team 6. No US troops were harmed in the rescue, and the New York Times reports that all but one of the kidnappers were killed. “We appreciate the support of our international partners in conducting this operation,” Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman said. “The United States will continue to protect our people and our interests anywhere in the world.” President Donald Trump also celebrated Walton’s return, and used the rescue to burnish his foreign policy credentials at a campaign rally Saturday in Newton, Pennsylvania. “We got our young man back, but the other side suffered gravely, I can tell you that,” Trump said. “We’ve gotten many hostages home. And I pay nothing, nothing. Can’t pay. Once you pay, you’ll have many many more.” Recovering Americans captured abroad is a bright spot in Trump’s foreign policy record Watson isn’t the only American to be kidnapped in West Africa in recent years; at least one other American, aid worker Jeffery Woodke, is believed to still be in Mali after a 2016 kidnapping in central Niger. But the US has recovered a number of hostages successfully during the Trump administration, including ones held in Yemen and North Korea. These successes — much like the successful special-forces rescue of Walton in Nigeria — are precisely the kind of foreign policy victories Trump likes to highlight. His current national security adviser, Robert O’Brien, was the US special envoy for hostage affairs until 2019, and in August, the Republican National Convention prominently featured six Americans previously held hostage abroad in a conversation with Trump. And although Trump has shown little interest in working with longtime US allies in the international community during his time in office, his administration has attempted to put a heavy focus on foreign policy in the closing months of the 2020 presidential campaign. In addition to Saturday’s rescue operation, Trump announced a peace deal between Israel and Sudan earlier this month, following on the heels of a similar agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates in August to normalize diplomatic relations. Israel and Bahrain also agreed to normalize relations in September, while Serbia and Kosovo both pledged to open embassies in Jerusalem, which the US recognizes as the capital of Israel. According to Vox’s Alex Ward, the agreements are “momentous... by almost any conceivable measure” — but there’s an incontrovertible electoral angle at play too. The Trump campaign pushed heavily for a foreign policy-focused debate with Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden earlier this month, and it’s no wonder: As Ward points out, it’s arguably firmer ground for the president than any of a number of domestic issues, such as “the coronavirus, the economy, race relations, and climate change,” where Trump’s leadership has been disastrous. But while Trump has had some foreign policy successes, his overall record is fraught. Ward notes that among (many) other issues: America’s global image has tanked on the president’s watch. The total trade deficit in the US, which Trump sought to slash in part by altering trade relations with China, is nearing an all-time high. He’s cozied up to autocrats and failed to stop their most egregious human rights abuses, especially Beijing’s internment of around 2 million Uighur Muslims. Iran has moved closer to being able to develop a nuclear weapon if it chooses to pursue one, despite the sanctions Trump has placed on the country. Biden also has a wealth of foreign policy experience of his own to emphasize as Election Day approaches. Even before eight years in the White House as vice president to President Barack Obama, Biden served as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. In August, former Biden adviser James Rubin told Ward that “[Biden] will come into office with a résumé that’s unmatched on foreign policy experience.” Occasional tweets aside, Trump himself has said relatively little about foreign policy on the campaign trail. During his Pennsylvania rally Saturday, for instance, the president began his remarks with conspiracy theories about Joe Biden and his family, campaign spending, and fake news before turning to the Nigeria rescue. In general, the president has spent far more time iterating some of his 2016 hits, including a new spin on “lock her up.” People bellow out "lock him up!" about Joe Biden at Trump's rally in Bucks County, Pennsylvania pic.twitter.com/XdqCKH9wgE— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) October 31, 2020 The White House itself, though, has worked to highlight the topic. On Friday, it promoted “the Trump Doctrine: Terrorists Lose and Peace Wins.” Trump’s surrogates have also emphasized the elements of his foreign policy. On Saturday, Donald Trump Jr., the president’s eldest son, tweeted, “With Trump, the world knows that harming an American has consequences, whether you’re a terrorist leader like al-Baghdadi or Soleimani, or these now-deceased kidnappers in Niger/Nigeria.” Will you help keep Vox free for all?

Black and Latino turnout lags white turnout in some key states. Democrats shouldn’t panic (yet).
Poll worker Sheila Alfred-Jacobs looks on as Charnisha Thomas holds Kashe Hall while signing in during the state’s presidential primary February 9, 2008 in New Orleans, Louisiana. | Mario Tama/Getty Images Black and Latino voters are less likely to vote by mail. That doesn’t mean they won’t vote. On Friday, a mere four days before election day, Bloomberg ran an article that seemed designed to give Democrats a heart attack. “Senior officials on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign are increasingly worried about insufficient Black and Latino voter turnout in key states like Florida and Pennsylvania,” the piece began. It then warned that, despite record turnout throughout the country, turnout among certain minority groups lags behind white people in important states. “In Florida, half of Latino and Black registered voters have not yet voted but more than half of White voters have cast ballots,” Bloomberg reporter Tyler Pager wrote. He added that “in Pennsylvania, nearly 75% of registered Black voters have not yet voted.” A day later, the Associated Press published a piece suggesting that Democrats have less reason to worry. “So far, about 9% of the early vote has been cast by African-Americans, about on par with the 10% of the electorate Black voters made up in 2016,” the AP reported. It also pointed to states like North Carolina and Georgia, where the percentage of early ballots cast by Black voters roughly tracks the share of African Americans in the state’s overall population. So what’s actually going on here? One possible answer is that the stories told by Bloomberg and the AP aren’t necessarily in tension. It’s possible that Black and Latino turnout lags in Florida and Pennsylvania, but Black turnout is keeping pace in North Carolina and Georgia. (It’s also worth noting that there are some indications that Biden is underperforming among Latino voters relative to 2016 nominee Hillary Clinton, even as he is overperforming among white people.) It is likely that the raw numbers in the Bloomberg article are accurate — but that’s not necessarily a reason for Democrats to panic. Many experts anticipated that, at this point in the election, white turnout would exceed turnout among certain voters of color because white voters are more likely to cast their ballot by mail. As Myrna Pérez, an expert on voting rights and voter suppression with the Brennan Center, told the House Judiciary Committee last June, “there has historically been a racial and age disparity in the use of vote by mail.” And there is at least some evidence that this gap continued to exist during the Covid-19 pandemic. “As of May 3,” Pérez told the Judiciary Committee, “26.6% of White registered voters in Georgia had requested mail ballots for the June 9 primary, while just 18.5% of Black voters and 12% of Latino voters had done so.” Pérez view was echoed by Dave Wasserman, an elections expert at the Cook Political Report, who tweeted in response to the Bloomberg report that “polling has told us all along that Black/Latino Dems are more skeptical of [voting by mail] than white Dems.” But all signs point to absolutely massive turnout in the 2020 election. In 2016, about 138 million Americans cast a ballot in that year’s general election. By contrast, over 90 million voters have already cast a ballot in the 2020 election, according to University of Florida Professor Michael McDonald’s U.S. Elections Project. That means that, days before Election Day, about two-thirds as many voters have voted in the 2020 election as those who cast a ballot in 2016. In some states, such as Texas, 2020 turnout already exceeds the total turnout in 2016. According to McDonald, just under two-thirds of the over 90 million ballots that have already been cast were mail ballots. So, while early in-person ballots do play a significant role in this election — nearly 33 million people have voted early and in person — the bulk of voters who have already cast a ballot have done so by mail. And white voters are likely to be overrepresented among this group. None of this means that Democrats, who typically rely on a multi-racial coalition to elect their candidates, can relax. Those running for public office would always prefer to have tens of millions of votes already cast in their favor rather than rely on people turning out to the polls in the future. And many election analysts point to reduced turnout among African Americans for Hillary Clinton in 2016 compared to Obama’s winning coalition in 2008 as one reason for her loss. If many Black and Latino voters plan to wait until Election Day to cast their ballot, the presidential election could turn on how many of them actually show up. And many voters of color are likely to be forced to wait in long lines on Election Day, in part because several key states have closed polling places in Black and brown neighborhoods. But a ballot cast on Election Day counts no more and no less than a ballot cast in advance. If Black and Latino voters do turn out, Democrats do not need to worry if these voters decided not to vote by mail.
