Sidra Medicine - in purple
* The QF entity lights up hospital in purple in recognition of premature and sick babies

Sidra Medicine marked World Prematurity Day on 17 November in support of raising awareness about preterm birth.  The hospital hosted several information sessions with staff and parents and also lit up its main building in purple, the official color for the observance. World Prematurity Day is observed on 17 November each year to raise awareness of preterm birth and the concerns of preterm babies and their families worldwide.
Dr. Charlotte Tscherning, the Division Chief of Neonatology at Sidra Medicine said:

Into the Weird, Opulent World of Turkmenistan’s Dentist-DJ Dictator

With the title of Protector, Turkmenistan’s president Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow is all about big, bombastic gestures that let you know he’s in charge. Most recently he ordered a 20-foot gold statue of his favorite dog, a local Alabay breed, put up in the capital Ashgabat. 

“Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow is a megalomaniac,” political scientist Luca Anceschi, also a senior lecturer in Central Asian studies at the University of Glasgow told VICE World News. “This is a guy who wants to be seen as an untouchable demigod.”

He added that the prime minister’s propaganda factory constantly churns out myths to brainwash the wider population, while wider-scale corruption funds and benefit’s the country’s elite in a web of patronage. In 2015, Berdimuhamedow immortalized himself in gold on horseback, holding a dove on top of a column of white marble. His officials insisted that statues are built in response to overwhelming public demand. “My main goal is to serve the people and the Motherland,” Berdimuhamedow has said. “And so, I will listen to the opinion of the people and do as they choose.” 

It might scream “crazy dictator” but to experts like Anceschi it’s also a testament to a growing personality cult. Berdimuhamedow sits at the top of an authoritarian regime that leaves no room for freedom or dissent.

A video from 2015 that shows the master Turkmen jockey’s infamous fall.

Sharing borders with Iran, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Afghanistan, the gas-rich nation, which is mostly desert, has had a long history of repression – even replacing North Korea in bottom place in the 2019 World Press Freedom ranking by Reporters Without Borders. The country remains closed off to all forms of international scrutiny and according to rights groups and critics, press freedom is virtually unheard of – with the president and his ruling inner circle going to extraordinary lengths to stem the flow of information both in and out of the country.

“Berdimuhamedow presides over one of the world’s most repressive governments and imposes punitive restrictions on media and religious freedoms,” said Rachel Denber, deputy Europe and Central Asia director at Human Rights Watch. The group has actively documented various violations of international humanitarian law.

Noting aggressive surveillance by the state and the control of print and electronic media, Denber also highlighted the persecution of journalists like Soltan Achilova, an independent correspondent who was harassed, assaulted and robbed by unknown assailants in 2016 and also stopped from boarding a flight to attend a conference abroad. “Journalists should be able to work without being assaulted or detained by police for doing their job,” Denber said. “Achilova’s ordeal was clearly yet another orchestrated attempt to silence critics in the country.” 

According to Denber, independent activists even in exile face threats of government reprisals. Inside the country, dozens forcibly disappeared after closed trials. The regime also restricts foreign travel for its citizens, imposing punitive measures on the media and curtailing religious freedoms.

Turkmenistan’s stifling climate for human rights has received more attention lately due to the coronavirus pandemic, in

Around the world in clever Covid-19 adverts

Issued on:

A tongue-in-cheek Covid-19 public service announcement from Germany elevating “lazy as racoons” couch potatoes to certified heroes became a social media sensation over the weekend. Many coronavirus-awareness adverts rely on fear or strike a sombre note with now-familiar tropes – the rising drone shots of empty cityscapes and swell of wistful music. But another genre sets itself apart with humour or clever takes on the way we live now, often with an eye to reaching young people. FRANCE 24 takes a look at some of the world’s best.


This instant classic went viral after German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s spokesman, Steffen Seibert, shared it on Twitter on Saturday with the hashtag #besonderehelden or #veryspecialheroes.

It features one Anton Lehmann, now an old man in the future, harking back to his youth. “It was winter 2020. Everyone’s eyes were on us. I was 22 years old, a mechanical engineering student in Chemnitz, when the second wave hit,” he recounts. “When the invisible danger threatened everything we held dear, we summoned all our courage and did what was expected of us – the only right thing,” Lehmann says, as the soundtrack swells to a climax before suddenly scratching to a halt. “Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Lazy as raccoons,” he explains.

The young Lehmann spends the rest of the clip scarfing junk food and watching television. “Our sofa was our frontline and our patience our weapon,” his future self narrates.

The viral video even reached Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. “Have you seen Germany’s new ads about Covid-19? It doesn’t matter what language you speak, the message is clear,” Trudeau tweeted on Monday, “You can be the hero in the fight against this virus – and you don’t even have to do that much.”

A second public service announcement (PSA) in the German series shows Lehmann’s wife, Luise, recounting her version of 2020, as the young Lehmann play-salutes her from their bed with a drumstick out of a takeaway bucket of fried chicken.


This Russian ad similarly calls on the country’s football fans to embrace domesticity in the face of Covid-19. “Even if you are a football fan, stay at home. Be a man and stay strong!” as director Roman Kulepetov put it.

South Africa

Advertising firm Havas gives recalcitrant anti-maskers a licking with this South African clip that makes the risks all too real as a man blithely uses an automatic teller machine… with his tongue. “If you don’t wear a mask, you might as well do this. Don’t be a #Covidiot.” The series features other videos along the same lines; one involves elevator buttons, the other the slurping of an escalator handrail. A disclaimer reassures viewers that no Covidiots were harmed in the making of the dramatisation.


The hard-hit Lombardy Region of Italy called on football star Zlatan Ibrahimovic to deploy his playfully supercilious persona for good in this short message after the AC Milan striker tested positive for coronavirus in September. “The virus challenged

SPENGA Becomes First Certified Pure Air Fitness Studio in the World

“Becoming a Certified Pure Air Indoor Environment has given our members the confidence to come back in for classes,” says owner Dan Foster. “It’s really provided the bounce we need to get back to business and has given us an edge over the competition.”

What is a Certified Pure Air Indoor Environment?

Pure Air Indoor Environment is a combination of services. Each service improves and maintains optimal indoor air quality.

HVAC Cleaned and Restored

The first step in the certification was to clean two rooftop air handling units with the PURE-Steam™ method. High temperature steam provides thorough disinfection of the RTUs. Then insulation was coated with encapsulating paint as part of the HVAC New Life™ process. This prevents the spread of fiberglass particles into the building below.

Pathogens Neutralized

PURE-Decon topical cleaning together with an electrostatic spray method disinfects pathogens. This method goes well beyond CDC recommendations. Next, two needlepoint PURE-Plasma BiPolar Ionizers and two PURE+AeraMax air purifiers were installed to eliminate microbes and particles.

Conditions Tested

Pure Air Control’s EDLab analyzed samples from coronavirus environmental testing and found no presence of virus RNA. As a result, the studio was verified safe for occupancy.

Conditions Monitored

The last step for certification included the installation of IAQ Guard technology. This system continuously monitors the facility for particles, temperature, rH, CO2, and VOCs. Finally, before entering the studio, members get checked at a touchless temperature detection kiosk.

Certified Pure Air Controls Success

“We were honored to help SPENGA achieve their IAQ goals to protect their members and staff,” says Alan Wozniak, CEO of Pure Air Control Services. “They are an elite fitness studio so becoming certified with our healthy building program speaks volumes of their commitment to the high standards they’ve set for themselves.”

Spain Sets Record COVID-19 Case Rise With Over 55,000 New Infections: Health Ministry | World News

MADRID (Reuters) – The number of coronavirus infections in Spain rose by 55,019 on Monday, the biggest increase since the start of the pandemic and more than double the increase of 25,595 new infections on Friday, health ministry data showed.

The death toll went up by 379, bringing the total number of coronavirus fatalities to 36,257 in Spain, which approved a six-month state of emergency last week to try to curb the second wave of contagion.

The 379 deaths was the sharpest one-day rise during the second wave, though still a far cry from nearly 900 at the peak of the first wave of the pandemic in late March.

The big jump in infections could partly be explained by an accumulation of cases over a three-day bank holiday weekend in Spain.

The official cumulative number of infections now stands at 1,240,697, but Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has said the real total is likely to be above 3 million, based on prevalence studies and estimates.

The northern region of Asturias asked for permission on Monday from the Spanish government to impose a two-week home lockdown as the pressure on health services reached breaking point.

“What most worries is the rise in hospital cases, more than the first wave and above all in intensive care. This could push our health service to the limit,” Asturias regional president Adrian Barbón told a press conference.

However, Spain’s health minister Salvador Illa refused the region permission to impose a full lockdown, saying authorities in Asturias should wait to see the effects of a curfew and other restrictions imposed under the state of emergency.

Dr. Rafael Bengoa, co-founder of Bilbao’s Institute for Health and Strategy, predicted Spain would impose a home lockdown within two weeks because the rate of infection was not slowing down.

“With the current measures, they are not lowering the infection rates, and it is necessary to go to the next level, a March-April type confinement,” he told Catalunya Radio on Sunday.

Warmer world linked to poor pregnancy results: study

Women exposed to high temperatures and heatwaves during pregnancy are more likely to have premature or stillborn babies, researchers said Wednesday.

Such outcomes — closely linked to poverty, especially in the tropics — will likely increase with global warming, especially during more frequent and intense heatwaves, they reported in BMJ, a medical journal.

Even small increases “could have a major impact on public health as exposure to high temperatures is common and escalating,” the study concluded.

Each year, 15 million babies are born premature, the leading cause of death among children under five, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). 

That mortality is concentrated in the developing world, especially Africa. 

To quantify the impact of higher heat on pregnancy outcomes, an international team of researchers led by Matthew Chersich from Wits Reproductive Health and HIV Institute in Johannesburg looked at 70 peer-reviewed studies of 27 rich, poor and middle-income nations.

Of the 47 studies that concerned preterm births, 40 reported they were more common at higher temperatures.

The odds of a preterm birth rose, on average, by five percent per one degree Celsius (1C) increase, and by 16 percent during heatwave days, according to the new findings.

Global warming has seen Earth’s average temperature rise by 1C over the last century, with greater increases over large land masses.

The number of exceptionally hot days are expected to increase most in the tropics, according to the UN’s climate science advisory panel, the IPCC.

– ‘High risk’ for heat –

Extreme heatwaves — made more dangerous by high humidity — are projected to emerge earliest in these regions as well.

Limiting global warming to 1.5C instead of 2C — goals consistent with the Paris Agreement — would mean around 420 million fewer people frequently exposed to extreme heatwaves, the IPCC said in a 2018 report.

The new study also found that stillbirths increased by five percent per 1C increase in temperature, with the link most pronounced in the last few weeks of pregnancy.

The impact of warmer days and heatwaves on low birth weight, which is associated with a host of health problems later in life, was smaller, but still significant, the researchers said.

As expected, adverse pregnancy outcomes associated with rising temperatures were strongest among poorer women.

Because other factors such as pollution might play a role in stillbirths and premature babies, the role of warmer temperatures is hard to pin down, the researchers acknowledged.

Nonetheless, the findings are strong enough to suggest that pregnant women “merit a place alongside the groups typically considered as at ‘high risk’ for heat-related conditions,” they concluded.

More research and targeted health policies should be a high priority, they added.

As rich countries hoard potential coronavirus vaccine doses, rest of world could go without

As a result, relatively wealthy nations will likely be able to vaccinate their entire populations, with billions of others relegated to the back of the line. People in low-income countries could be waiting until 2024.

These deals between countries and drug manufacturers, known as advance purchase agreements, are undermining a World Health Organization-linked initiative to equitably distribute vaccines, the study suggests.

“Where we are headed is a situation where high-income countries have enough, and low-income countries just don’t,” said Andrea Taylor, the lead researcher.

Since the vaccine race got underway, experts have warned of the dangers of “vaccine nationalism” and calling for a cooperative approach to vaccine development and distribution.

More than 150 countries, representing a large share of the world’s population, have signed on to participate in the Covid-19 Vaccines Global Access Facility, or Covax, which aims to develop and equitably distribute $2 billion in doses of a vaccine by the end of next year.

Under the plan, both rich and poor countries pool money to offer manufacturers volume guarantees for potential vaccines. The idea is to discourage hoarding and focus on vaccinating high-risk people in every participating country first.

Many wealthy players, including the European Union, Canada and Japan, joined the initiative. But most are backing Covax while also cutting deals directly with manufacturers.

The researchers found that Canada and the United Kingdom have already reserved more than enough potential vaccines to cover their entire populations. The E.U. has also secured hundreds of millions of doses.

These deals make sense from a country perspective, but they undermine cooperative efforts to secure enough doses, particularly for low-income countries, experts said.

“The more that countries hedge their bets and work outside of Covax, the harder it is for Covax to actually deliver on its promises,” said Suerie Moon, co-director of the Global Health Center at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva.

Rich countries, she said, “are eating up all the supply before Covax can take a nibble.”

The United States did not join Covax, in part because the Trump administration did not want to work with the WHO. The Duke analysis found that the U.S. already has agreements to buy enough doses to cover 139 percent of its population — and could eventually control 1.8 billion doses, or roughly a quarter of the world’s “near-term” supply.

Middle-income countries are also reserving doses. Brazil and India already have secured the rights to enough vaccines to cover about half of their populations, the study noted.

Most low-income countries, by contrast, have little choice but to rely on Covax, which must compete with big players to secure access to vaccines.

Taylor, the lead researcher, stressed that the study offers a “snapshot” of where things stand, not a definitive prediction. Access to vaccines depends in large part on which vaccines prove safe and effective — and that is still very much up in the air.

Another critical question is capacity: How many coronavirus vaccines can the world make in a
