THE CLAIMS OF TRUMP AND BIDEN IN THE LAST PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE
Less than two weeks before the elections, the last debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump was held where issues such as the coronavirus pandemic, immigration, climate change and racism were discussed.
Both used their hands, their looks and their bodies during the last presidential debate.
While Trump insisted that he had done a good job with the pandemic and said the country needs to “learn to live with it,” Biden responded, “People are learning to die with it.”
Both accused themselves of receiving money from foreign governments, Biden justified the accusations made against his son, while Trump explained his bank accounts in China and the refusal to show his taxes, while explaining the low payment of his taxes.
POPE FRANCIS IN FAVOR OF GAY UNIONS
This week we learned of an interview that, although it was never broadcast in its entirety in 2019, was given by the Pope for the documentary film “Francesco”, which was recently released.
His sayings were made in an interview with the Mexican network Televisa, which was never broadcast.
In the film, shown at the Rome Film Festival, Francis says that gays have the right to be in a family because they are “children of God.” Statements that excited progressives and alarmed conservatives.
“You can’t kick anyone out of a family, or make life miserable for that. What we have to do is a law of civil coexistence, they have the right to be legally covered. I defended that, ”the Pope said.
TRIPLED THE COST OF TICKETS TO CUBA FROM MIAMI
Havana prepares the opening of the José Martí International Airport to receive flights from abroad, but the prices offered by commercial airlines from Miami range from 300 to 800 dollars.
For those who travel from South Florida to places like Santa Clara, Holguín, Camagüey and Santiago de Cuba, the journey has been lengthened due to the direct flight ban.
The new itinerary for Cancun or the Bahamas increases the price of trips to the Cuban provinces. Those traveling to the island will have to undergo a PCR test to detect possible contagion with COVID-19, and although tourists and residents will not have to pay for the test, it will cost emigrants $ 50.
DRUG USED AT TRUMP APPROVED TO TREAT COVID-19
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the first drug to treat COVID-19: remdesivir, an antiviral that is administered intravenously to hospitalized patients. The drug reduces the recovery time from 15 to 10 days on average.
The intravenous drug has helped shorten the recovery time for some hospitalized COVID-19 patients.
The drug used to treat President Donald Trump was approved for people at least 12 years old, weighing more than 88 pounds, and hospitalized for coronavirus infection.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious disease expert, said the drug set “a new standard of care” for COVID-19 patients.
