Sex and COVID-19: the question that bothered Jacinda Ardern | Digital Trends Spanish

It is now customary for New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern to appear in front of journalists to deliver the latest information on the situation of the coronavirus pandemic in her country. However, this Thursday, September 9, was a particular occasion, due to a question that bothered the highest authority of the nation. In the middle of the round of consultations, a journalist asked him about a complaint involving a COVID-19 patient who had had sex with a person who had visited him in an Auckland hospital where he was staying. In particular, the reporter asked him if this could be considered a “high risk activity”, in the current panorama offered by the health crisis. PM Jacinda Ardern says sexual relations, regardless of Covid status, shouldn't “generally be part of [hospital] v...

Why is New Zealand questioned in the face of the pandemic? | Digital Trends Spanish

A few days ago, the arrival of the Delta variant in New Zealand was confirmed, one of the countries that appears to be the most successful in managing the pandemic. In this way, the oceanic nation ended six months without any new contagion, which had previously been highlighted as an achievement. However, the new scenario has forced the adoption of strict sanitary measures, such as the use of masks and the application of quarantines, which had been discontinued due to the apparent improvement that the country was showing. This Monday, August 30, the health authorities have decreed the extension of the confinement in Auckland due to the spread of the Delta variant. For this reason, there are already several who question whether the strategy adopted in the face of the crisis was the most ...

New Zealand raises the alert for increased infections | Digital Trends Spanish

This Tuesday, August 17, New Zealand confirmed its first coronavirus infection in six months. Because of this, the nation decreed the complete confinement of the territory for three days. However, this Wednesday, the oceanic country has had to raise the alert with the increase in infections. According to official information, ten new cases have already been confirmed. However, the authorities believe that there could be between 50 and 120 people infected. This is because one of the latest confirmed cases involves an Australian student who would have been in contact with more than 80 people. The prime minister, Jacinta Ardern, pointed out that the rapid increase in the number of infected is due to the Delta variant, for the same reason she defended the new measures adopted. "It shows t...

New Zealand quarantined after first contagion in 6 months | Digital Trends Spanish

New Zealand stands out as one of the nations that has best known how to deal with the coronavirus pandemic. For this reason, the measures it has adopted serve the rest of the countries as a reference or a way forward. Now, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has decreed the confinement for three days of the more than five million inhabitants of the country, after a case of community transmission was detected in Auckland, the first since February 28. This decision is due to the concern that this case corresponds to the Delta variant. The measure will take effect from this Tuesday, August 17. However, the inhabitants of Auckland and the Coromandel Peninsula will be confined for seven days. “We have only one chance. We need to go strong and early to stop the broadcasts, ”the nation's highest...

Lord of the Rings series leaves New Zealand | Digital Trends Spanish

The next series of The Lord of the rings Amazon will change locations for the future. After filming the first season in New Zealand, the production announced that they will move to the UK. Through a statement, Amazon also announced that pre-production for the second season will begin in early 2022.

In very politically correct words, the bosses of Amazon thank the government of the oceanic country for all the facilities granted for the production of the first season, which will continue in New Zealand until the close of post-production, in mid-2022.

Evidence shows disease spread 4 thousand years ago | Digital Trends Spanish

The global heat and infectious diseases appear as the main threats that humanity must face in these times. We have probably realized that in the worst way, when the increase in the global temperature of the planet has reached historical highs, and the COVID-19 pandemic has already left hundreds of thousands of fatalities. But infectious diseases do not seem to be typical of these times. Everything indicates that humanity has been fighting against them for thousands of years. This at least has been shown by important bioarchaeological research carried out by a team from the University of Otago, in New Zealand, which has provided evidence of how infectious diseases may have spread 4,000 years ago. The research was published in Biorcheology International It was led by Dr. Melandri Vl...

Nikola Tesla’s wireless electricity comes true | Digital Trends Spanish

Nikola Tesla is perhaps one of the most misunderstood scientists of his time, especially after he claimed at the beginning of the 20th century that the wireless transmission of energy was possible. “An inexpensive instrument, no bigger than a watch, will allow its wearer to listen anywhere, at sea or on land, music and songs, the speech of a politician, the lecture of a scientific eminence or the sermon of a clergyman, pronounced in any distant place ”, he commented on the remote transmission, an idea with which he competed against Guglielmo Marconi to see who was the first to transmit messages across the Atlantic. The truth is that the internet today makes this transmission possible via large submarine cables and then the extension by air with Wi-Fi signals, but wirele...

A relative of the dinosaur shares genes with mammals | Digital Trends Spanish

The tuátara is a reptile, to say the least, particular. It is only found in New Zealand, it has a third eye - light-sensitive and that regulates its circadian cycle - and also has a double set of teeth in the lower jaw. But the most relevant characteristic is that it is a species that emerged 250 million years ago. For this reason, many specialists call it the "living fossil". So strange is the tuátara that a global team of scientists - led by the University of Adelaide and the Museum of South Australia - studied it with the aim of sequencing its genome. The conclusions of the investigation - published in the journal Nature- they showed that the genome of the tutata has an unusual architecture, which is halfway between mammals and reptiles. “The tuátara is the last su...
