More than twice as many cured than infected in Andalusia although the curve flattens: {Translated from sevilla.abc.es} Updated: 05/03/2021 16:32
-Andalusia has had 1,270 cases of coronavirus infection this Friday. This is the highest figure of the week, it is true. But it is also true that, after a long weekend, it takes time for the data to stabilise. It is too soon to know whether this increase in cases is due to a change in the trend or to a statistical issue. We will have to wait for the weekend data to verify this.
-In addition, the community has added 2,680 people cured this Friday, more than double the number of positives recorded, a very positive balance for Andalusia.
-What is already a reality is that the curve is flattening. From an almost vertical fall, the data has shifted to slight decreases in almost all parameters. And this is already reflected in Andalusia’s seven-day cumulative incidence rate, which has gone from 49 points to 52. It is a very slight change and also in a measure that is not the benchmark, but it points to a dangerous change in trend. To see the most reliable data, you have to look at the 14-day figure, which is down by 4 points today. From 134 cases per 100,000 inhabitants a fortnight ago to 130.
-The death toll, on the other hand, is 50 today. After five days with much lower figures, it seems that the death toll is rising again. But, once again, it is too early to see whether this is a new trend or an influence of the bridge. We have to wait and see.
-Where the good news continues is in hospital pressure. From 1,625 people admitted for coronavirus in Andalusia, the community has gone this Friday to 1,502, that is, 123 people less. It is a notable drop, true, but far from the more than 200 discharges that were recorded a couple of weeks ago. In the ICU, where it takes longer for changes to be reflected, there are still numerous decreases in patients. Today, the number of patients admitted to intensive care has fallen by 37 to 354.

Microsoft email software hack spreads, experts brace for more impact: Wielding tools that exploited four previously unknown vulnerabilities, the allegedly Chinese group that Microsoft dubs “Hafnium” has been breaking into email servers since January, remotely and silently draining inboxes of their messages without having to send a single malicious email or rogue attachment. As these hack tools gain wider distribution there will likely be a major campaign of hacked accounts and targeted spam this summer, as well as a series of updates to try and fix the problem. (If you sign in to any of these services you have a Microsoft account: Outlook, Office, Skype, OneDrive, Xbox Live, Bing, Store, Windows, or MSN. -Ed.)

Travel industry bets on vaccine passports to draw Brits to the Mediterranean: Thanks to its swift vaccine deployment, Britain is the only major European country likely to inoculate a large share of working-age adults by the peak season.

Change in football rules: The International Board (IFAB) held its 135th annual meeting by videoconference on Friday and decided to delay from June 1 to July 1 the entry into force of the changes to give players, coaches and match officials more time to familiarize themselves with them, although the competitions will have flexibility to introduce changes before then.
Given the the interpretation of hand offenses has not always been consistent due to incorrect application of the rule, IFAB members confirmed that a touch of the ball with the hand / arm of a player is not necessarily an offense. It will be infraction when a player deliberately touches the ball with his hand / arm, for example, moving the hand / arm towards the ball. It will be an offense when he touches the ball with his hand / arm when he has unnaturally enlarged his body.
