More than 215.3 million people have tested positive for the virus worldwide, according to Johns Hopkins University. About 4.5 million infected people have died. More than 5 billion vaccine doses have been administered worldwide.

Coastal hospitals in Louisiana cannot be evacuated despite the approach of dangerous Hurricane Ida because there are too many Corona patients in the state. This was stated by Governor John Bel Edwards. Currently, 2450 patients are being treated as inpatients for Covid 19 disease in the state of 4.6 million people, he told CNN on Saturday (Aug. 28). There is no longer capacity in Louisiana and neighboring states to admit additional patients, he said. “Evacuating hospitals will not be possible because of this,” he said. Louisiana and neighboring states are in the midst of a dramatic Corona wave.

In France, tens of thousands of people demonstrated Saturday (Aug. 28) for the seventh weekend in a row against tighter Corona rules. Across the country had been called for about 200 protest marches. In addition to the mandatory vaccination of health care workers, the protests were directed against the so-called health passport for proof of vaccination, recovery or a negative test. For the most part, the protests took place in a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere, as could be seen on television images.

The Brazilian metropolis of Rio de Janeiro will in the future require proof of vaccination against the coronavirus to visit public facilities such as gyms, cinemas and museums. This is according to a decree published by Rio’s city government on Friday (Aug. 27). The measure will apply from September 1. More than 80 percent of the adult population in Rio have received the first dose, according to the city government. Previously, São Paulo had announced a vaccination passport. This was to be valid from Friday, but now the introduction has been postponed.

After a rapid increase in Corona numbers, stricter protective measures will apply in the Italian region of Sicily from next Monday (Aug. 30). The Mediterranean island in the south of the country will be the first region to be reclassified as a so-called yellow zone, as Health Minister Roberto Speranza decided on Friday (Aug. 27). This means that stricter measures will again be introduced in the vacation region, for example in gastronomy, where only four people from different households will then be allowed to sit together at the table.
