New testing site opens in Back of the Y Chicago
New testing site opens in Back of the Yards neighborhood to increase testing
To increase testing, new testing centres are being opened every day. The latest testing centre for COVID-19 was opened in the Back of the Yards neighbourhood.
The new testing site turns out to be very important as elected officials are trying very hard to increase the number of tests in those regions where they are most important.
Even the community leaders find it essential and hence willing to open the new site in the 5100-block of South Ashland Avenue.
People suffering from symptoms or having a history of contact with someone positive can get tested here for COVID-19. One must have an appointment to get themselves tested for free.
Officials expect to test around 100 people daily, and they will operate from 8 a.m. to noon daily.
Many activists and community organizers well appreciate this testing site as they were demanding new testing sites in African American and Latino neighbourhoods for long.
There is an increasing demand for more tests daily in the state.
Gov. JB Pritzker is also trying to increase the number of tests by helping new testing sites and also working to manage supplies of more equipment and testing kits.

Subways services will be shut down every night to carry out of disinfection process
To ensure proper disinfection so as to prevent spread of coronavirus the New York City subways will be shut down for four hours every night to disinfect every single car on every single train in its fleet. The subway stations will be closed between 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. every day from May 6 and this may continue until the virus is no longer a threat said MTA. The agency though did not provide an exact date to end this ago it said Governor Cuomo may allow it once 24-hour services are implemented. To compensate for this cancellation of the transport system, MTA will be adding 334 buses, 1168 trips and 37 routes with the bus fare being free.
In the case of workers who cannot depend solely on bus ride alone will be offered with a free ride to home via MTA's partnership with hire care services. The wing responsible for cleaning the subways will be divided into three teams and 500
employees will be assigned to clean each subway car every day. The following are the details on division of labour force to carry out the tasks. Daytime Terminal Car Cleaning: Once a train reaches its final destination the crews will be removing trash, clean spills and biohazards, and spot clean seats, floors, and other surfaces. Also, the trains will be disinfected at terminals during specified times of the day. Overnight Yard Cleaning: Trains that will be in service during daytime and out of service during night time will be receiving a more intense cleaning which includes removal of garbage and graffiti, clean spills and biohazards, mop floors, clean seats cleaning, and disinfect surfaces. Overnight Terminal Car Cleaning: Trains that remain in service at night will receive cleaning that is identical to the yard cleaning except at terminal stations.
The MTA police force and NYPD will be working together to ensure clearance of subway stations every night "to make sure their critical work goes on uninterrupted." Though the increase in cost for overnight staffing is not announced, MTA Chairman Patrick Foye said costs to staff overnight cleaning operations would run hundreds of millions over budget. Transport Workers Union Local 100 President Tony Utano said "exactly the aggressive and dramatic action we wanted to safeguard transit workers worried they could contract the virus from people camped out in the system." The MTA said apart from the time during 9/11 attacks and strikes where the services were cancelled only for a day this is the first time that services are partially or completely shut down due to a health-related situation.

Какие профессии будут востребованы ?
Какие профессии потребуются в стране после мирового карантина? Этот вопрос задавали специалисты из Российского института прогрессивного образования.
Они обнаружили, что особенно востребованы те, кто обладает знаниями и опытом в кризисных ситуациях. Личных финансовых консультантов не следует оставлять без работы. Оцифровка компаний и массовый переход к удаленной работе увеличат спрос на специалистов по интернет-маркетингу, программистов и контент-менеджеров.
Предприниматели будут продолжать искать телефонных консультантов. Расширение данных организаций также предусматривается. Вместе с водителями и диспетчерами доставки будет еще больше работников интернет-магазинов. Особенно в компаниях общепита.
Медсестры, социальные работники и медперсонал общей практики также могут рассчитывать на повышенный интерес. Причина в том, что люди начинают активно заботиться о своем здоровье. Помимо этого, длительный период изоляции может привести к тому, что многим понадобится помощь психологов.
Специалисты также подчеркнули, что Краснодарскому краю повезло, ведь повара также нужны в курортной индустрии: рестораны и кафе, которые функционируют на вынос, без них не обходятся. Без врачей и медсестер оздоровительный центр невозможен.
Однако существует риск снижения покупательной способности. Но аналитики уверены, что в Сочи его не будет. Специалисты уверены, что курорты у моря всегда будут привлекать внимание жителей российских регионов, особенно отдаленных, где лето длится 1 месяц.
