British non-Brazilian variant threatens ‘new wave’ in US – 03/28/2021 – Nelson de Sá

In the United States, at the end of Sunday, the Drudge Report’s headline was still “Brazilian Nightmare,” a “Risk to the World,” linking The Associated Press and a broad Wall Street Journal report, emphasizing on the Brazilian. strain, P1.

Others followed the same line this weekend, with the New York Times making headlines on Saturday afternoon for “overcrowded hospitals” due, first, to a “contagious variant,” P1.

But the same NYT carried to the top of the house on Sunday that the “cases are traced back to the US”. He criticized, first of all, “the variant which hit the United Kingdom, called B.117”, the same one which “led to a new wave of cases in Europe”.

Due to the aggressiveness of the British strain, which has become “dominant”, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said a few days ago that Europe is now facing “fundamentally a new pandemic”.

The NYT published that “scientists warn this could lead to a new wave in the US” and quotes, according to a Harvard epidemiologist, that “B.117 is scary.”

The newspaper highlights Florida, where “the most contagious variant identified in the UK is growing exponentially,” but New York is also facing a rise, as the Financial Times noted earlier in the evening.

PREMATURE RELAXATION

The unexpected spike in cases had already been reported by the US government on Friday, but it was an interview with CBS on Sunday by Anthony Fauci, the White House’s chief medical adviser, that raised the alarm. He said it was “premature” to lift the restrictions, as several states have started to do.

‘A STORY OF SLAVERY – AND OF SPACE’

In the Washington Post, correspondent Terrence McCoy visited Alcântara, Maranhão, and produced a full multimedia report with the headline above. In short, as captioned in the photos:

“The United States wants to launch rockets in Brazil. This could mean the expulsion of several thousand descendants of slaves. “

AMAZON SANCTUARIES

In a report sponsored by the Norwegian International Climate and Forest Initiative, the NYT reported on Sunday the story of pilot Antonio Sena, who crashed with his small plane in the Amazon and spent 36 days in the forest, until he is rescued.

“A story that arrested the Brazilians,” the newspaper publishes, “and which drew attention to the illegal mining industry in Brazil, which was thriving in indigenous territories and other parts of the Amazon believed to be sanctuaries ”.
