25/09/2020 ΣΗΜΕΙΑ ΣΥΝΕΝΤΕΥΞΗΣ ΥΠΟΥΡΓΟΥ ΥΓΕΙΑΣ ΒΑΣΙΛΗ ΚΙΚΙΛΙΑ ΣΤΟ ΚΕΝΤΡΙΚΟ ΔΕΛΤΙΟ ΕΙΔΗΣΕΩΝ ΤΟΥ STAR ΚΑΙ ΣΤΗ ΔΗΜΟΣΙΟΓΡΑΦΟ ΜΑΡΑ ΖΑΧΑΡΕΑΓια το μήνυμα του Πρωθυπουργού Κυριάκου ΜητσοτάκηΠολύ σωστά ο Πρωθυπουργός μίλησε για την αξία της ανθρώπινης ζωής. Με την εμπειρία που έχουμε ως χώρα – η οργανωμένη Πολιτεία, οι πολίτες, οι γιατροί, οι επιστήμονές μας – όλοι μαζί ενωμένοι κάναμε μια μεγάλη προσπάθεια, έτσι ώστε να επιτύχουμε να έχουμε τους λιγότερους δυνατούς θανάτους.Αυτό, λοιπόν, μπορεί να επιτευχθεί με τα βασικά. Αποστάσεις, ατομική υγιεινή, μάσκα. Και ξέρετε, βαραίνει η ανθρώπινη ζωή και η αξία της αυτοπροστασίας έναντι της καραντίνας.Πρώτα απ’ όλα είναι η ανθρώπινη ζωή. Από εκεί και πέρα είναι και η καθημερινότητά των ανθρώπων, η αγωνία τους και η προσπάθειά τους να τα βγάλουν πέρα.Η ψυχή του διαγγέλματος του Πρωθυπουργού ήταν αυτή: πώς θα καταφέρουμε σε μια μερική κανονικότητα, προσαρμοζόμενοι στις νέες συνθήκες, να ξεπεράσουμε αυτή την τεράστια δυσκολία.Στοχευμένα τεστ στο κέντρο της Αθήνας από τις ΚΟΜΥ του ΕΟΔΥΟ Πρωθυπουργός μίλησε για στοχευμένα μέτρα σε περιοχές με υψηλό επιδημιολογικό φορτίο όπως είναι η Αττική. Ήδη, στο ιστορικό κέντρο της Αθήνας υπάρχουν οι Κινητές Ομάδες του Εθνικού Οργανισμού Δημόσιας Υγείας, οι οποίες κάνουν ελέγχους από γειτονιά σε γειτονιά, σε επιδημιολογικά ευάλωτες ομάδες και σε συμπολίτες μας, έτσι ώστε να έχουμε πραγματική εικόνα για το πώς πρέπει να αντιμετωπίσουμε το πρόβλημα. Γιατί επιδημιολογικά βλέπουμε ότι πάνω από 900 ενεργά κρούσματα βρίσκονται στην Αθήνα.Υλοποιείται η απόφαση για ξενοδοχεία καραντίναςΗ απόφαση που πήραμε και υλοποιούμε έχει να κάνει με ξενοδοχεία καραντίνας, έτσι ώστε αυτούς τους υγειονομικά ευάλωτους συμπολίτες μας, οι οποίοι είναι κατά κύριο λόγο νέοι με ήπια έως καθόλου κλινικά συμπτώματα, να μπορούμε να τους προστατεύσουμε – και τους ίδιους αλλά και τους υπόλοιπους συμπολίτες μας – έχοντάς τους σε μία μερική καραντίνα 14 ημερών ώστε να μην υπερμεταδόσουν τον ιό.Για την ΚΥΑ των Υπουργείων Οικονομικών και ΥγείαςΕίναι η ίδια Κοινή Υπουργική Απόφαση την οποία είχαμε υπογράψει και πέρυσι και μας δίνει τη δυνατότητα non-COVID περιστατικά από τις ΜΕΘ των δημόσιων Νοσοκομείων να τα μεταφέρουμε στον ιδιωτικό τομέα. Συνεργαζόμαστε με τον ιδιωτικό τομέα, είναι κοινή η μάχη απέναντι στον κορονοϊό, έτσι ώστε να μπορούμε να μετατρέψουμε κάποιες από τις ΜΕΘ μας σε ΜΕΘ-COVID και με αυτό τον τρόπο να εξυπηρετηθούν όλοι και να καλυφθούν οι ανάγκες που έχουμε σε τροχαία και εγκεφαλικά, σε καρκίνους, σε καρδιαγγειακά νοσήματα, αλλά και στην COVID. Το Εθνικό Σύστημα Υγείας πρέπει να υπηρετεί τους πάντες.Για τις κλίνες Μονάδων Εντατικής ΘεραπείαςΑυξήσαμε τις κλίνες στις ΜΕΘ των Νοσοκομείων μας από 557 σε 941 και σύντομα θα φτάσουμε στις 1.200, προσλαμβάνοντας μόνιμο προσωπικό και παρέχοντας εκπαίδευση σε μία άνευ προηγουμένου μεταρρύθμιση μέσα στην κρίση του κορονοϊού. Είμαι πολύ χαρούμενος που καταφέραμε μέσα στην κρίση να πλησιάζουμε αυτή τη στιγμή τις 1.000 ΜΕΘ. Με τη σημερινή κατάσταση καταφέραμε να μην έχουμε αναμονές στην Εντατική Θεραπεία. Αυτό είναι το μείζον, το τεράστιο πρόβλημα της Μεταπολίτευσης. Αν θυμάστε, ήταν πολιτικό ρουσφέτι να βρει κανείς κρεβάτι Εντατικής Θεραπείας. Δεν θέλω να ξαναπαρουσιαστούν τέτοιες σκηνές, για αυτό και παρακαλώ όλους να σεβαστούμε τους εργαζομένους στο Ε.Σ.Υ., να προσέξουμε τον εαυτό μας, την οικογένειά μας. έτσι ώστε να μην αυξηθεί ο ρυθμός μετάδοσης του ιού, που αν συμβεί αυτό γεωμετρικά, κανένα εθνικό σύστημα Υγείας δεν μπορεί να αντέξει.

The European Union (EU) and the Kyrgyz Republic held their tenth round of the annual Human Rights Dialogue on 24 September via video conference.An open and constructive discussion covered a broad range of issues. The parties discussed developments in the human rights situation in the Kyrgyz Republic and in the EU since the last Dialogue and in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. The EU expressed concern as regards restrictions on the freedom of peaceful assembly and information, as well as the high increase of gender-based- and domestic violence during the peak of the pandemic. The EU reiterated its concern over controversial legislative initiatives, namely on Trade Unions; Non-Commercial Organisations; Manipulation of information; revision of the Criminal Procedure code, which would contravene Kyrgyzstan’s obligations under the relevant international conventions. Individual cases were also discussed, including the ongoing investigation as regards the death in prison of the human rights defender, Azimjan Askarov. The EU welcomed the important work carried out by the national human rights institutions, in particular the Ombudsman and the National Preventive Mechanism. The EU reiterated the need to ensure the uninterrupted work of these institutions, particularly in times of the coronavirus crisis. The EU and the Kyrgyz Republic also elaborated on the progress in measures and mechanisms to prevent the use of torture and ill-treatment. The EU and Kyrgyzstan discussed the freedom of expression, including freedom of the media. The EU called on the Kyrgyz authorities to maintain and protect an open media environment as an important enabler for free, competitive and transparent parliamentary elections on 4 October. The parties addressed cooperation with civil society, as well as issues of good governance, including the rights of the members of minority groups and the fight against corruption. The Kyrgyz Republic has been member of the Generalised Scheme of Preferences, the GSP+, since January 2016.

European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control's new risk assessment shows need to step up coronavirus response in the EU

[unable to retrieve full-text content]European Commission Press release Brussels, 24 Sep 2020 Today, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) published its updated risk assessment regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, alongside a set of guidelines for non-pharmaceutical interventions (such as hand hygiene, physical distancing, cleaning and ventilation).

CoR analysis of the 2021 Annual Sustainable Growth Strategy

​​​​​​​​​ On 17 September 2020, the European Commission launched this year’s European Semester cycle with the publication of the Annual Sustainable Growth Strategy 2021 (ASGS). Usually issued in November, this ASGS came unexpected early due to the Commission’s decision to “temporarily adapt the European Semester to the launch of the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF)” in order to avoid an overlap between both. This ASGS is also unusual in its content since it largely focuses on setting the strategic guidance for the implementation of the RRF. It was accompanied by two Staff Working Documents providing additional guidance and a template to support Member States in the preparation of their national and Recovery and Resilience plans (RRP).  The ECON secretariat drafted a short analysis of these documents, from the CoR perspective; these are the main conclusions:   An adapted Semester cycleThis will be an uncommon European Semester cycle, not only because it starts earlier than usual, but also because there will not be any Country Reports nor Country-Specific Recommendations. The National Reform Programmes will also need to be adapted, but some degree of uncertainty can be noted in this regard: little reference to the National Reform Programmes in the documents, potential overlaps with the RRPs, etc. Member States are encouraged to submit their draft RRP from 15 October and the final deadline is 30 April 2021.   Role of local and regional authorities and multilevel governance Member States are usually “invited” and “encouraged” to describe the role of local and regional authorities in the process leading to the adoption of their RRP and in the implementation of the reforms/investments under each of their components. Emphasis has been placed on describing the coordination mechanisms to ensure the complementarity of the RRF and other EU Funds, but despite some guidance was offered, this coordination is likely to be one of the main challenges that Member States and local and regional authorities will have to face. Also, the role of local and regional authorities in setting the milestones, targets and timelines of the reforms and investments is not explicitly recognised.    Territorial dimension and cohesionDigitalisation in rural areas was heavily referenced. In some cases, the need to reduce territorial disparities was also mentioned, but despite a few mentions of "cohesion", this objective does not seem to be prioritised to the extent that it could be expected, given the legal basis of the Proposal for the RRF.   Twin transitions and SDGs  There is hardly any reference to the United Nations SDGs, in contrast with the previous year’s intention of integrating​ them in the Semester. However, the importance given to the green and digital transition and the contribution of the RRF to “delivering competitive sustainability” will most likely contribute to the SDGs. It seems that the reference framework has been moved from the SDGs to other initiatives such as the European Pillar of Social Rights, the Green deal or the National Energy and Climate Plans. Nonetheless, this may also suggest a lack of leadership and coordination of the Commission on the SDGs, which could lead to a sub-optimal implementation and problems of policy coherence. For instance, greater reference to the multilevel governance and participatory approach of the SDGs has been missed in the ASGS. In this context, will the EU be able to reach the SDGs by 2030?Let's block ads! (Why?)
