Two coronavirus patients in Sydney have been recovered
More than 20 cases of coronavirus have been noticed in Australia so far, mostly in New South Wales. Today it has been reported that two infected people are completely recovered. These are 35-year-old and 53-year-old men, who have recently returned from China. Their doctors say that symptoms of the illness have completely disappeared and they took tests, which showed that there are no viruses in their bodies. Other people with the virus are still in hospitals.
Medical people in NSW are still investigating the disease and will not be surprised, if there are new cases of infection in the state.
NSW firefighter tells about fires
The bushfires in Australia are not over yet. Firefighters are still fighting it. One of them is Alana Haswell, who works in New South Wales.
Wherever forces are still fighting to get the bush fires under control. Haswell and her colleagues have been deployed across the state, in the Blue Mountains, on the coast, and also in Cooma, about five hours southwest of Sydney. Sometimes they fought the flames around the clock and brought people to safety.
She says It is actually impossible to completely extinguish the fires yourself. A huge area is burning, which is densely overgrown and which is difficult to reach. There is also no water supply, so helicopters and water cannons are used. Our main task at the moment is to protect people and their homes and to support the NSW RFS, the New South Wales volunteer fire service. The danger has not yet been averted.
There are many reasons why the bushfires are more intense and bigger this year. I personally believe that the main reason is climate change. It is much warmer and the drought makes it easier for the fires to spread. But there are many reasons that all add up to this "perfect storm" this season.
here are enough firefighters who are ready to help and fight the bushfires. But there don't seem to be enough other resources like fire engines. They are urgently needed because this is the only way we have access to water.
Sydney rescuer of kangaroos
A 47-year-old headmaster of the successful international company from Sydney has been deeply disappointed by the fire situation in New South Wales and its consequences for animals, especially for kangaroos. His name is Marcus St Vincent. He left his work and moved closer to nature to help these animals.
Just outside Sydney he saw more than 50 hungry kangaroos, they had nothing to eat at all. National parks are not able to feed evry animal. So the man bought hay bales and carried them to kangaroo with his boat. But that was not enough for him. Mr Vincent launched a charity and created a site for kangaroo donations. He has already raised $12,000.

During the hearing of a petition on Thursday, the court said that using pesticides and chemicals to produce/make fruits is like poisoning consumers. It will stop only by taking legal action on such people. The court made this remark while hearing a public interest litigation related to monitoring of use of pesticides in fruits and vegetables.
Use of calcium carbide to prepare mango is like poisoning someone, so why should such people not apply the relevant section of the Indian Penal Code. The court asked the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India whether calcium carbide is still being used to cook mangoes. The court directed the Chief Executive Officer of the authority to be present on the next date.
Hearing the petition, the court has also asked the Agriculture Ministry whether there is a way that allows consumers to find the amount of calcium carbide present in fruits at their home. The ministry stated that no such kit is available and that calcium carbide can only be tested in the laboratory.

В фонде "Старой книги" хранятся экземпляры, которые относятся к научной литературе, словари и энциклопедии.
