   Tropical cyclone lashes Mozambique

At least six people have been killed and twelve injured as a result of a tropical cyclone called "Eloise" characterized by heavy rainfall and flooding especially in the area of the city of Beira, the same one lashed by tropical storm Chalane three weeks ago and devastated by Cyclone Idai two years ago. There is talk of more than one hundred and seventy-six thousand people in central Mozambique affected by the vortex and eight thousand eight hundred houses destroyed, damaged or flooded, in particular in the cities of Buzi, Dondo, Nhamatanda and Beira; then more than eight thousand three hundred people were evacuated, twenty-six health facilities damaged, one hundred and forty-two thousand hectares of crops flooded as well as interruptions in the supply of electricity. An attempt is being made to help and meet the most immediate demands of the population by setting up evacuation camps, but the resources available are scarce.

   Renewable sources in Europe outweigh fossil fuels

The data provided on energy from renewable sources, such as the sun and wind, in Europe in 2020 would have reached thirty-eight percent compared to thirty-seven obtained from fossil sources, such as gas and coal. Denmark seems to be at the top of this ranking among European countries with sixty-one percent of its electricity from renewable sources, but there are countries like Slovakia and the Czech Republic with less than five percent. The generation of electricity from coal fell well before the 19-nCoV pandemic caused a decrease in consumption and this trend should remain thanks to the large number of new plants that exploit the installed renewable energy, then we must consider the fall in the prices of these plants that make them decidedly cheaper with positive environmental repercussions since the costs to deal with climate change are one of the main items in the budgets of the states.

   One year after the quarantine in Wuhan

China has managed to contain the SARS-CoV-2 virus pandemic better than other countries, a year after the quarantine measure taken in the city of Wuhan with scenes of difficulty for citizens confined to their homes that were then seen in many cities around the world; but there is no shortage of outbreaks of infections such as in the city of Shijiazhuang in the north of the country where many prefabricated to deal with the epidemic have been prepared as well as large-scale diagnostic kit strategies. Meanwhile infections around the world have exceeded ninety-eight million with more than two millions victims, and authorities in Britain warn that their variant of the 19-nCoV virus could be more virulent and aggressive, so an increase in deaths is likely to increase in countries where it is spreading.

   Reduced resources for climate adaptations

Pandemic 19-nCoV has reduced resources to deal with climate change, but researchers warn that greater efforts are needed to ensure a future resumption of activities with investments aimed at facilitating adaptation to changing climate conditions and protecting nature from the damage caused by global warming. We will have to take into account a reduction in harvests, a lower quality of agricultural products and entire deteriorated supply chains if no adjustment is made to adapt to climate change; then needless to say thet the poorest countries will have greater difficulties in adapting with consequent mass migration and social and international tensions, without also considering the rise of the seas that pose another challenge for humanity that is difficult to solve.

   Brazilian nCoV variant worrying

What is referred to as the Brazilian variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, initially identified in the city of Manaus, worries researchers because it may apparently infect people who have already been infected and vaccinated. The small variations that occur in the spike protein on the surface of the virus allow it to replicate more easily avoiding the response of the immune system, so it will probably be necessary to reformulate the vaccines in order to update them with these changes. The English variant that has proven to be more virulent, with a record of over one thousand and eight hundred victims in a single day in Britain, is already widespread; but in this case one of the main vaccines in distribution (with problems of availability of recalls after the first dose) still seems to be effective.

   Little nCoV prevention in the United States

Many infections with SARS-CoV-2 viruses in the United States have been caused by the poor prevention measures taken by the population (apparently fifty-two percent declare that the virus is not at all) and there is controversy for the attitudes held regarding the spread of the 19-nCoV epidemic by the outgoing administration; in fact, the data monitor new records of victims with a total of over four hundred thousand at a rate of up to three thousand per day in January. There is talk of structural deficiencies in dealing with the health problem with shortcomings that have shown the real flaws regarding the receptive capacity of the facilities and the poor preparation to face crises, not to mention that the new more virulent variant of the virus could further aggravate an already un manageable and out-of-control situation.

   First nCoV infections probably in Wuhan

Investigations into the first SARS-CoV-2 infections that caused the Covid-19 pandemic are still ongoing with inspections in China (a country that claims the virus came from Europe), but apparently a video from the end of December 2017 not available online shows Wuhan laboratory workers handling bats likely infected with coronavirus without adequate protection, not complying with the rules laid down by international health organisations. There is also talk of Chinese researchers who collected samples of bats feces in caves without wearing the intended equipment or attempts to capture and handle an animal solved with a bite that pierced a rubber glove like a needle. These bats were perhaps carriers of a powerful variety of the virus being studied.

   Sulawesi in distress after earthquake

The Indonesian authorities are failing to properly manage the emergency in the provincial capital Mamuju (of almost three hundred thousand inhabitants) after a strong earthquake that three days ago struck the Sulawesi island, there is talk of at least eighty-one victims then it is not clear how many people were buried by mountains of debris and many injured refuse to go to the hospital for fear of further tremors. Doctors in confusion and general fatigue must also be ware of SARS-CoV-2 virus infections and curtains are being set up to hospitalize patients. Some survivors complain that food, blankets and other basic necessities are missing; while digging through the rubble and many people were pulled alive by rescuers. In Indonesia earthquakes are frequent due to the friction of tectonic plates of the so-called Pacific Ring of Fire.

   Earthquake in Sulawesi in Indonesia

At least thirty-seven people have died as a result of the 6.2 magnitude earthquake that struck the island of Sulawesi with an epicenter thirty-six kilometers south of the city of Mamuju at a depth of about eighteen kilometers that caused several buildings to collapse; there is also talk of many injured, missing and damage to roads, infrastructure as well as inconvenience and panic for the population (partly for warnings of possible tsunamis due to severe aftershocks). Authorities who sent rescue teams digging under the rubble say the city's airport has also been damaged. To report recently a series of landslides in Indonesia in Sumedang district of Cimanggung that claimed at least nineteen lives including some rescuers who were trying to help those in difficulty.

   Too many blankets envelop the planet

Releasing large amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere for decades means in figurative terms according to some researchers to covering the planet with thick blankets that keep the heat for a long time; a bit like in a bed and add blankets to stay warmer, but basically too many to the point where start sweating with an unpleasant feeling of discomfort. This does not necessarily mean that these blankets must be removed, but at least not to add others also because the climate trend shows a decisive overheating year after year (a growing line with normal variations in the peaks monitored for forty-four years). Despite the reduction in emissions due to the 19-nCoV pandemic global warming continues to show its long-lasting negative effects due to heat accumulated even in the seas during decades of uncontrolled emissions.
