More than 50 babies left stranded in Ukrainian hotel

More than 50 babies left stranded in Ukrainian hotel

More than 50 babies born to surrogate mothers have been left stranded in a Ukrainian hotel because the lockdown means new parents from overseas are unable to collect them.

Foreigners have not been allowed into Ukraine since authorities there issued a travel ban in March.

As a result of the restrictions, which are in place until at least 22 May, many parents have only seen their children through video calls and pictures.

The Hotel Venice, which is located on the outskirts of Kiev, has 51 babies that have yet to be collected by their parents.

The building, which is owned by the clinic BioTexCom, is normally used by parents who stay there while picking up their children.

The Ukrainian government has said that parents are only allowed to enter the country following a request from their respective embassy.

Lyudmyla Denisova, the human rights ombudsman for the Ukrainian parliament, said that

Hungarian doctor who left boy 'catastrophically' injured due to poor English says being forced to learn is discrimination

Hungarian doctor who left boy ‘catastrophically’ injured due to poor English says being forced to learn is discrimination

A Hungarian doctor who injected a four-year-old with a potentially lethal dose of acid because he could not read the label has claimed a requirement to learn English at his age is discrimination.

Dr Gyorgy Rakoczy, 65, argued that he was being put at a disadvantage because older people find it harder to learn new languages.

The consultant paediatric surgeon was initially suspended in 2012 after he wrongly injected the unnamed boy with a potentially lethal amount of carbolic acid when he misread a label in an incident three years earlier.

The boy was left with ‘catastrophic’ internal injuries and required a colostomy bag, having originally been admitted for a suspected haemorrhoid.

He required over 30 corrective operations, including the removal of a section of his bowel.

Despite the incident, Rakoczy returned to work at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital but he later failed English language tests in reading, writing,

The Rams and veteran left tackle Andrew Whitworth both got what they desired.

Whitworth did not want to end his 14-year NFL career. The Rams, with no one to succeed the 38-year-old at one of football’s most important positions, needed the sage Whitworth to return.

Whitworth this week signed a front-loaded three-year contract, and is on track to once again line up as quarterback Jared Goff’s blindside protector.

“That was kind of the goal all along,” Whitworth said Thursday of his decision to stay with the team that signed him as a free agent in 2017. “I wanted to stay here and play, and once I decided for sure and got the OK from the family and everybody else that we

Showrunner Krista Vernoff On Justin Chambers Exit, Storylines Were Left In Limbo & More

SPOILER ALERT: The story includes details about the season-finale episode of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy. While it wasn’t the planned ending, tonight’s Season 16 finale of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, written by Mark Driscoll and Tameson Duffy and directed by Deborah Pratt, was fitting. Indeed, this season was cut short due to the halting of production in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

You can’t be the longest-running medical drama on television without overcoming some challenges, and Grey’s already has proved its ability to pivot when the unexpected happens. The production shutdown was is the second major curveball for the show this season after original cast member Justin Chambers’ abrupt exit. No word on whether the four unproduced episodes from Season 16 will roll over to the next season. But this episode, titled “Put on a Happy Face,” had enough to tide us over until Season 17.

Let’s start on a positive … Read More

‘Peloton Girl’ Calls Out Citron’s Andrew Left For Dismal Price Target

Actress Monica Ruiz criticized Citron Research’s Andrew Left for giving a bleak outlook for Peloton Interactive Inc. (NASDAQ: PTON).

What Happened

Twitter user “Typical VC” posted a video on Twitter on Tuesday, saying that he had booked Ruiz’s services on Cameo to talk about Citron.

“I just thought that I would be a good person to talk a little s–t to you,” Ruiz can be heard saying, referring to Left. “One bad little bit of promotional materials, or…press isn’t going to kill a company like Peloton, especially right now.”

Who’s Ruiz?

The actress shot to fame last year when one of her expressions from a Peloton ad was turned into a meme on social media, as reported by the Los Angeles Times.

Citron’s Price Target

America’s freelancers left without income amid coronavirus financial crisis

In between nightly stand-up comedy sets, Ronn Vigh worked part-time as a talent coordinator and taught yoga at three different studios. He had finally found a delicate balance of pursuing his dreams and achieving financial stability.

Within a matter of days, Vigh, 40, was left completely in the lurch as San Francisco implemented a shelter-in-place order in response to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

“In the past, this was enough to keep me financially safe if one gig disappeared, like if I had a sparse month for comedy bookings or classes had to get canceled for some reason. However, this unprecedented shutdown has really thrown a wrench into all of that, and there is no longer a safety net,” he said.

As COVID-19 has dismantled the economy, millions of Americans are out of work, and instead facing deep financial anxiety. On Friday, the Department of Labor reported that 701,000 people lost

  • A coronavirus “super-spreader” who refused to self-isolate prompted the quarantine of about tens of thousands, officials said.

  • The “super-spreader” did not self-quarantine after traveling to Italy and Germany, and attended a large Sikh festival in India in mid-March.

  • The man died shortly after the festival, and was posthumously diagnosed with the novel coronavirus.

  • His diagnosis prompted officials to lock down 20 neighboring villages in northern India in a bid to contain the spread.

  • The UK needs to ‘radically change direction’ and start doing far more tests for possible cases of the coronavirus, according to the former health secretary Jeremy Hunt.

  • Boris Johnson announced strict new lockdown measures on Monday, meaning people are only allowed to leave their homes to pick up essential supplies and exercise once a day.

  • But Hunt, speaking before the lockdown was announced, said the UK needed to introduce testing as well as new social distancing rules, warning that up to a million people could be infected by the end of next week and said the UK lockdown may be “too late.”

  • He said: ‘How can we possibly suppress the virus if we do not know where it is?’

Were elderly Italians left to die? And is socialized health care to blame?

Were elderly Italians left to die? And is socialized health care to blame?

The claims: Italians over 80 will be ‘left to die,’ and that may be because of socialized health care

Various claims that Italians over the age of 80 would be “left to die” have surfaced within the past week on social media, with some posts saying the blame falls on Italy’s socialized health care system. 

Italy forced to prioritize health care resources

Italy’s COVID-19 fatality rate of 5% is higher than the global average of 3.5%. As the country’s confirmed cases continue to surge, health officials are scrambling to find adequate resources.

Despite a countrywide lockdown, Italy reached a grave milestone this week when the country’s death toll surpassed China’s — as of March 19, 3,405 people have died. 

Italy has an older population, with a median age of 47.3, compared to 38.3 in the United States. Older populations are much more susceptible to complications from COVID-19, and many of
