Baby fashion south africa: 10 Cool Kids Clothing Brands in South Africa

10 Cool Kids Clothing Brands in South Africa

Today, I am starting a new series – Tuesday 10 and I’m very excited about it!

You know how much I love lists. 😉 so every Tuesday I will be sharing my favorites. From baby bottles to travel. Anything that fits into my lifestyle.

As a mother, I spend a lot of my time shopping for my kids. It can get overwhelming! It is like impossible shopping at the mall with a 3-year-old and a 4-month-old. My husband hates it and refuses to shop with me. It is physically and emotionally draining for everyone. Malls are crowded so I prefer shopping online but when I do get an opportunity I shop on my own.

Tips for a trip to the mall:

  1. Carry a stroller.
  2. Pack snacks and water.
  3. Choose the right shopping time – if possible avoid shopping with kids during big sales and payday.
  4. Blow off some steam at the mall’s kids play area.

I found 10 cool brands you need to check out online/at the mall if you haven’t already!

Cotton On Kids caters to mini fashionistas offering the latest styles that allow even the littlest personalities to shine through.

The new rompers for babies now include three different styles – the traditional, mini long sleeve romper, the functional mini zip-through romper, which is now available in a short sleeve/leg version, and the stylish Alexander hooded romper, complete with a hood and pockets at the front.

The girls swimwear range (for ages 2 – 8) includes one pieces, bikinis, tankinis, boardies and rashies in a range of bright, bold colours and prints that are synonymous with summer such as watermelons, lemon, cherries and ice-cream cones.

Palm trees, pineapples and octopuses are featured throughout the boys range (for ages 2 – 8) which boasts a pastel colour palette including peach, mint and yellow.

Naartjie generates ten ranges per year, with brand new prints, fresh colours and current trends for kids from newborn to ten years old.

All designs are carried out on their home turf in Cape Town South Africa, by a team of talented, slightly whacky, but highly skilled designers who get their inspiration from what they see locally in nature or on the streets, as well as global trends, observed on their frequent travels.

Naartjie garments are made almost entirely from 100% cotton, and garment dyed.

Garment dying means that the clothes are dyed after they’ve been stitched up. It is a more expensive process but ensures a vibrancy of colour. The garments also have a softer and more authentic feel because of the unique washing processes that they use, and it means they are 100% pre-shrunk.

Litza is a stay at home mom who has swapped her corporate suits for more comfortable clothes and flat shoes. While searching for a gift to send to her best friend overseas for the birth of her baby, she realised there wasn’t much of a selection of unique and original gifts that she could send that were designed and made in South Africa. Most baby gift shops offered imported gifts for babies and since the gift was going overseas she wanted something from South Africa. So she decided to put her creativity to good use and started Cotton Candyfloss – “handmade baby gifts”.

All products are designed by herself and materials used are locally sourced in South Africa. All packaging is either made from recyclable material or can be reused/repurposed.

BOUNTY is a South African baby & kids wear brand that was founded in 2015, in the sunny city of Cape Town.

Buy Proudly South African Children’s Clothing Online

Because BabyYumYum is a Proudly South African brand and we like to support other South African brands (and because, of course, local really is lekker!) we’ve put together this list of amazing local clothing brands for children.

This is where modern design meets traditional African shweshwe fabric – and we couldn’t love the result more! All handmade locally, the Lesedi clothing range includes shorts, shirts, skirts and more and will add a distinctly South African flavour to any child’s wardrobe.

With Sam & Sage‘s bold colour palette and bright prints, you can dress your child in statement clothing all the way from the newborn stage to when they’re six years old – plus, there are great unisex options. Everything is designed and made in South Africa and you can forget fussing with zips, press studs, velcro and tiny buttons (what a relief!), as the designers at Sam & Sage have kept things seriously simple.

You won’t find ‘girls’ and ‘boys’ ranges here – Flynn Jaxon was started when the owners spotted a gap in the South African market for cool, unisex clothing for kids in monochrome and neutral colour palettes. Browse their selection of clothing, beanies, shoes, bibs and peak caps. And, of course, we’ve saved the BEST bit for last: there’s a ‘twinning’ section on the site where you can buy matching mommy-and-me outfits!

When you visit this online store you can expect to find pretty nature-inspired prints (RosieBee‘s founder is a botanist after all!) and, along with the very want-able children’s clothes, you’ll be able to stock up on equally gorgeous changing mat covers, cot sheets and swaddle sets. You can also buy Bee Newborn Boxes (there are three different boxes to choose from), which are packed with a clothing set and milestone stickers that you can use to photograph all those amazing ‘firsts’ like their first steps, smile and word.

I’m sure it has happened to every parent: your little one has outgrown their clothes before they’ve even had a chance to wear them! Enter Petit Fox to solve this exact problem. You can sell your lightly worn baby and child clothing, and make enough money to buy something ‘new’ from the site as well. And it’s not just kids clothing you can pick up on a shoestring budget, they keep a selection of maternitywear too. We love a good bargain, and that’s what you’ll find here.

Out latest find, Little Lumps offer great choice when it comes to clothing for premmies, up to babies aged 18 months. We also love the range of personalised items, like babygros, blankets, bibs and door hangers – and that they stock baby shower gifts and nursery decor. We’re adding everything from this store to our ‘want it’ list!

Top of the priority list when the Schnooky Pie team designs their 100% cotton clothing for babies and toddlers is comfort – but that doesn’t mean they’ve compromised on style. The kiddies’ brand has found the perfect balance between fashion and function so you can stock up on cool onesies, skirts, shorts, tees and rompers. Also available at their online shop? Blankets, backpacks and bath bombs.

So, Tiny Necessities might not be the first place you think of when you need to quickly buy a pair of shorts or a tee for your little one, but that’s because their luxury range is better suited for special occasions. There’s an impressive amount of Christening clothing for sale, but their other ranges are no less beautiful. Think retro prints and ruffles for girls and suspender shorts and collared onesies for boys.

90,000 This is South Africa | BASK

South Africa, occupying the southern tip of the African continent, is one of the largest and most developed countries on it. South Africa, so named for its location, is home to numerous attractions.

It is the only African country with three capitals: Pretoria is the administrative capital, Cape Town is the South African parliament, Bloemfontein is the judicial capital. And not only this makes the republic unique.With mountain ranges flanking equally wide deserts, perfectly blue oceans and dense forests, the country attracts travelers from all over the world with its landscapes. Since 2017, South Africa has canceled a visa for Russian citizens.

South Africa is incredibly diverse – from the Kgalagadi deserts to the lush green forests of Tsitsikamma, the pristine beaches of the Wild Coast and Cape Town’s vibrant nightlife; from the world famous Table Mountain and Drakensberg Mountains to the Kruger National Parks.The country has everything and even a little more when it comes to nature and adventure. Here you can see the famous African “Big Five” in national parks on land, as well as white sharks underwater. There are about 900 different bird species in South Africa, which is about 10% of all bird species in the world.

South Africa – Cradle of Humanity

The heritage of the South African nation is another feature that makes the country literally a hotbed of tourist attractions.With over ten official languages ​​ranging from Zulu to Kos, Afrikaans and English, South Africa is a blend of attractive cultural diversity. Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Nelson Mandela called South Africa “Rainbow Country”. The term was coined as a metaphor for a new, multicultural and multi-ethnic society that overcomes divisions dating back to the apartheid era.

Here is the cradle of humanity, the origins of ancient man.The Cradle of Humanity is located 50 kilometers northwest of Johannesburg. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is home to nearly half of the fossils of human ancestors. “Life itself began in Africa. So, you have returned home. Welcome home, ”the guide might tell you.

South Africa is a country of records

Interesting facts:

  • More than 1500 plant species grow on Table Mountain alone in Cape Town. There are more flower species on it than in the whole of the United Kingdom.

90,000 African motives on the catwalks of Europe and America

African motifs are increasingly appearing in the collections of Western designers, and couturiers from Africa are increasingly asserting themselves in the global fashion space.Gazeta.Ru is about how poor Africa began to set the tone for leading fashion houses.

Fashion has long gone beyond the four world capitals. Now she has reached Africa – more precisely, the southern continent is having an increasingly serious impact on world catwalks. In the United States, there is a struggle against the cultural appropriation of black culture by whites – but the world still cannot resist the charm of African stylistics.

For example, African motifs became the key focus of the Balmain fall-winter 2017-2018 collection at Paris Fashion Week.The collection consisted of items with elements of animal skins, snake-print shoes, jewelry resembling massive amulets, and many Afro-style patterns, such as portraits of wild animals. In turn, Valentino designers openly stated that the new collection is dedicated to travel to Africa. Instead of the usual elegant dresses and coats, the audience saw rough leather work, Moorish patterns, ethnic prints and massive jewelry – everything that Europeans associate with Africa.



During African Fashion Week in Toronto, Canada, August 2017

African motifs were also noticed in the collections of Maison Margiela – here elements of distant Africa in the form of rough inserts adorned feminine dresses.

I must say, African influence on fashion is a trend that is not returning for the first time. The fashion industry has seen similar things in the past: Yves Saint Laurent in 1976, John Galliano for Christian Dior in 1997, McQueen in 2000, and in 2012 all fashionistas in the world donned animal and safari prints thanks to Burberry. Prorsum, Balenciaga, Roberto Cavalli and others.

A new word in the world of haute couture this year was the triumphant appearance of the collection of African designer Teddy Ondo Ella at New York Fashion Week.The basis of his line is made up of abacoste and clothing with a clear anti-colonial origin. Abacost is the clothing of the indigenous people of Zaire (now DR Congo) during the struggle against the colonial past (the “classic” abacost is a tight-fitting two-tone jacket that should be worn with a tie or neckerchief). In her collections, Ella distorts traditional concepts: she shies away from a tie, uses European materials and attaches great importance to collars.

Couturier was born in Congo, but raised in Gabon, studied in Paris, and spent the summer in Africa.He has been interested in design since childhood, although, according to him, in Gabon, only politics and work on the farm are considered successful areas. “For me, clothes are a way to express myself and the easiest way to express my culture,” he said in an interview. So it makes sense that he will end up in the industry himself eventually.

It is worth noting that Teddy Ondo is not the only designer from Africa who was able to make a name for himself outside the country.The world famous brand Loin Cloth & Ashes was founded by Anisa Mpungwe, who was born in Tanzania. In 2008, she became the first black woman to receive an Elle New Talent Award. “My views, conflicts and triumphs affect the way I conceptualize my clothes. On the one hand, I am a modern, liberal and outspoken person, on the other, I will still kneel down to greet my elders, ”she said in an interview with CNN style.

African designers are actively trying to make themselves known in the world.

In 2009, Adiree Communications even developed the concept of International African Fashion Weeks, which take place in the world’s fashion capitals. Shows take place in New York, Miami, Los Angeles, London, Paris, Milan, Berlin and Tokyo. This model helps to strengthen international economic relations while promoting brands from Africa on a global scale.

On the southern continent, the fashion industry is also developing: Africa Fashion Week Nigeria has been taking place since 2014, the other season of the Johannesburg Fashion Week Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Joburg has ended (however, instead of the traditional five days, the local Fashion Week lasted only three).And already on August 30, South Africa Fashion Week starts. By the way, African designers have long been familiar with the pop-up store concept, which is just beginning to develop in Russia. South African Fashion Week will be held in this format. Pop-up shops will be located in the shopping center of Pretoria (South Africa) Brooklyn Mall.

The Brighton & Hove Museum and Art Gallery in the UK hosted the Fashion Cities Africa exhibition for 11 months. The exposition was timed to coincide with the release of the book of the same name by Hannah Azib Poole.She researched fashion and street style in four major African cities – Johannesburg, Casablanca, Lagos and Nairobi. According to Hannah, she sought to capture the scope and scale of the African fashion renaissance through the lens of these four cities. “Lagos, with its love of glamor, turns into a real fashion house, Joburg sometimes looks like a sleepy town in comparison with it, Nairobi is super creative, and the Casablanca scene is small but bright,” she said in an interview with CNN style …

Taxi aggregator Bolt releases the St. Petersburg market

and at this time a Chinese network comes into it

Estonian taxi aggregator Bolt, which recently announced its intention to launch a franchise in Russia, has reduced activity in Russia. Until now, the company’s services were available only in St. Petersburg, but now it is almost invisible there too. All this is happening against the background of plans of the Chinese investor Bolt – DiDi holding – to also develop in the Russian market.

The Chinese network DiDi, which owns shares in Bolt and Uber, came to Russia in the fall of 2020 and decided not to stop : Ukraine was next on the list. Further, the company plans to explore the countries of Eastern and Central Europe, as well as develop everywhere in the post-Soviet space.

The Bolt taxi ordering platform became available in the Russian Federation in 2019. At the peak of the popularity of the service, the partner network grew to three thousand individual entrepreneurs and legal entities (taxi companies), but by the end of 2019, the company’s activity began to decline.Now it is practically absent in the Northern capital, Novy Prospekt writes.





“There are no orders at all,” said Alexander Starikov, one of the first Bolt partners in St. Petersburg, the owner of the A2 Service taxi company.

“No advertising – no orders, no orders – no connections”, – confirmed in the company “Verona”, which offers drivers to connect to aggregators.

At the end of January in Bolt announced plans to expand the franchise , including in the regions of Russia. The franchise offer is expected to cover the entire range of services provided by the Estonian operator, including delivery, kicksharing (scooter rental) and bike sharing.

As explained in the press service of the company, against this background, the Russian division is considering “the possibility of changing the operating model”, which explains the low activity of the service in St. Petersburg.

“We are at the stage of searching for a suitable partner who would take over the operational activities in Russian cities, including St. Petersburg. As soon as we find a suitable partner, we will revise the conditions of the Bolt service together with him in order to provide the best prices and service times, ”says Bolt.

Do you have questions about the intricacies of working on a franchise? Ask us or our experts in the heading “Don’t google – ask us!” .Our approach is individual, knowledge and experience are unique, and we are ready to share them. Ask – we will definitely answer.

Coronavirus: latest news on March 26 in one post (03/26/2020)


Canada will pay quarantined $ 1400 4 months

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said MPs had passed the bill as part of the country’s $ 57 billion stimulus package, AP said in a statement.

According to Trudeau, the bill provides for the payment of $ 1,400 per month for 4 months to those Canadians who lost their jobs during the coronavirus pandemic. He even added that financial assistance would also be available to those who are out of work due to illness or need to stay at home and take care of their children.

The Prime Minister called the coronavirus “the largest health crisis in Canadian history” as the North American country has registered 2,923 people infected with the dangerous virus, with 28 deaths to date.

Belgium will not save old people from coronavirus

Elderly people in Belgium who are in a nursing home in poor health will not be admitted to hospital if they also have COVID-19.

Local media reports referring to guidelines issued by the local Gerontology Society. They indicate that this approach is being applied to older people who are expected to die by the end of the year due to dementia or other persistent health problems.

It is added that these decisions will be agreed with the families of the elderly. According to the Belgian authorities, even if they are admitted to hospital with COVID-19, elderly people in poor health will receive the same medical care as in nursing homes. It is explained that this approach frees hospitals from the epidemic and provides additional protection for doctors.

Supplies and personnel are loaded aboard the USNS Comfort Hospital at Naval Station Norfolk, Virginia on March 24, 2020.Comfort is preparing to deploy in support of national COVID-19 response efforts and will serve as a hospital for non-COVID-19 patients currently admitted to coastal hospitals.

The US Department of Defense supports the Federal Emergency Management Agency, a leading federal agency, and state, local, and state health authorities to help protect the health and safety of the American people.(US Navy video from 2nd Class Mass Communications Specialist Joshua M. Talbert).

Sweden opposes national quarantine

While more and more European countries are restricting population movements to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus, Sweden has taken a different, more flexible path, not closing primary schools, restaurants and bars.

This apparent contrast has led to public debate:

“We cannot afford to repeat in Sweden the human suffering we saw in Wuhan and Bergamo.This would be a risk that violates the fundamental principle of society: everyone is valuable, ”wrote the editor-in-chief of the leading daily Dagens Newsheet.

Later that day, Social Democrat Prime Minister Stefan Leuven spoke to the public on television (which rarely happens), urging everyone to “take their share of responsibility” and follow the government’s advice to work remotely and keep their distance. The authorities also recommend that all “at risk” stay at home.Meetings of more than 500 people are prohibited, schools and universities are closed.

Yesterday, the government urged restaurants and bars to serve customers only at the table, avoid queues and ensure a minimum distance between all required customers. But for many, life continues to take its course. On Saturday nights, the bars and restaurants in the Swedish capital were full, as was public transport during peak hours. However, like most of Sweden’s European partners, the country’s borders are already closed for travel.

In addition, the Swedish parliament hastened the adoption of a bill allowing the closure of primary schools and kindergartens, if necessary. The government responds that it is following the recommendations of the Public Health Agency and says it is ready to take action. Health authorities say they have not asked to close schools yet because adults, not children, must stay at home. has yet to anger its northern neighbors, which are taking more stringent measures to combat the pandemic.

The people of India, with a population of 1.3 billion, are forced to stay at home in order to stop the spread of the coronavirus and not to suppress the country’s health system.

Police use sticks to beat people who do not comply with imposed self-isolation measures after New Delhi residents took to the streets as usual.

The blockade in India surpasses even China – 760 million people were blocked there in January after the virus caused an epidemic in Hubei province and then spread around the world.

So far, only 500 cases have been reported in India. However, there are fears that poor living conditions, poor hygiene and a weak healthcare system could quickly lead to an uncontrolled spread of infection.Experts estimate that up to 500 million people can contract the coronavirus in India within a year. This, in turn, will lead to at least 1 million deaths.

Policemen on the streets use sticks, force violators to do push-ups, squats and other exercises. If you look at the footage, you can assume that the Indian police like to beat people.

Belgium develops a 15-minute test for diagnosing coronavirus

A new test can determine in 15 minutes whether a person has contracted the coronavirus.The test was developed in Belgium.

The “antigenic” test reacts to viral proteins in samples taken from the upper throat and looks like absorbent paper like the one used in pregnancy tests. Local media outlets note that a new coronavirus test could lead to faster treatment of confirmed cases and reduce laboratory tests.

Molecular bioassays in the laboratory are more accurate, but more expensive and time-consuming. A 250-week test last week found that a new test confirmed positive coronavirus samples in 7 out of 10 patients.Although the test is only 70% effective, the Belgian health authorities have allowed it to be sold.

The Rapid Test was developed by Coris BioConcept and a number of universities and partners. The creators want this test to be used by the authorities at the national level, as it will ease the burden on health care and reduce costs. A number of hospitals in Belgium are already planning to use it.

Prince Charles has coronavirus

Prince Charles has tested positive for coronavirus.This is reported by the BBC and the Telegraph. The information was also confirmed by a representative from Clarence House.

He said that Charles “had mild symptoms, but remained in good health and has been working as usual for the past few days.” Prince Charles, 71, and Camilla Parker Bowles, 72, have already isolated themselves at their home in Scotland.

“The Duchess of Cornwall has also been tested for the virus, but the result is negative,” said a spokesman.

“It is not possible to determine who Prince Charles was infected with.”

In the meantime, however, a number of English media reported that on March 10 in London, Charles met with Prince Albert II of Monaco, to whom it became clear a few days ago that he had also tested positive for COVID-19. The meeting between them took place on March 10. However, many are worried about the health of Queen Elizabeth II and whether Charles infected her with a dangerous virus.

“Charles last saw the Queen on March 12th,” said Buckingham Palace.

A few days before this – on March 9, the royal family met for the last time – Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Camilla, as well as the Dukes of Cambridge and Sussex.Medical experts believe Charles was infected with the coronavirus earlier than March 13. This reassures everyone, since the likelihood of Charles passing on the disease to the rest of the royal family is zero.

Buckingham Palace reiterated that the 93-year-old Queen was at Windsor Castle for a week. Her husband, 98, Prince Philip is there too.

“Her Majesty the Queen remains in good health,” said the palace.

Prince William and Kate Middleton are in Norfolk, while Harry and Meghan Markle are in Canada.This means that the heirs to the throne have not been in direct physical contact in recent weeks.

Mike Pompeo accuses China of withholding information on COVID-19

China is hiding information about the coronavirus. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in an interview with Washington Watch radio program.

According to him, Beijing is postponing the exchange of information on Covid-19, which threatens the lives of people around the world.

“I am concerned that this cover-up, this disinformation that the Chinese Communist Party is dealing with, is preventing the world from obtaining the information it needs to prevent the coronavirus from spreading further or a recurrence of the current situation,” said Mike Pompeo and called for more transparency regarding Covid-19.

Army in South Africa deploys for coronavirus blockade

In South Africa, they took the blockade of cities very seriously due to the coronavirus and are bringing in entire columns of military equipment, including light armored vehicles and tanks.

New York will tighten quarantine conditions

New York City on Wednesday took active new steps to combat the crisis by closing streets and asking people to stop playing basketball and other contact sports in public parks.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said more than 30,800 people have tested positive for the virus in his state, the epicenter of the US outbreak, and more than 17,800 in New York alone. The state reported 285 deaths and about half of the reported infections in the country.

Government measures to control the coronavirus are working, Cuomo said, as hospitalization rates have slowed in recent days.

“Now this is almost too good to be true,” he said.”This is a very good sign and a positive sign, again, not 100% sure that it is correct or accurate, but the arrows are pointing in the right direction.”

He described the closure of streets in New York City, home to more than 8 million people, as a pilot program and said sports such as basketball would be banned in city parks, initially on a voluntary basis, as long as people obey.

USA, university gyms. The 1918 Spanish flu pandemic and the 2020 coronavirus pandemic Even as the City struggled to contain the health crisis, the impact was increasingly felt outside the hot spots of New York, California, and Washington State as Louisiana and others have faced severe damage to their health systems.

U.S. President Donald Trump issued the latest major federal disaster statements for Louisiana and Iowa late Tuesday night, freeing up federal funds to help states cope with the growing number of cases of dangerous respiratory illness caused by the virus that threatens to overwhelm state and local resources.

This results in disaster regimes being declared in five states. New York – the state with the most infections and deaths – received this status last weekend, as well as the states of California and Washington.

The Louisiana Department of Health, where large numbers of people celebrated Mardi Gras in New Orleans and elsewhere in the past month, reported a sharp rise in infections, according to the Louisiana Department of Health. A total of 1,388 cases and 46 deaths were confirmed.

Dr. Rebekah Gee, who was Louisiana’s secretary of health until January and is now head of Louisiana State University’s health services department, said it was Mardi Gras, when 1.4 million tourists descended to New Orleans, that caused the outbreak in the city.

A self-isolating man uses a drone to walk his dog

Some people have found new ways of doing everyday tasks without getting close to other people.
Using all the tools available to him at a time when it is impossible to go outside, Vakis, originally from Cyprus, decided to tie the dog’s leash to a small remote-controlled drone and force him to walk the animal down the street outside his house while he controlled them from his garden. …

While it is doubtful whether this task will be performed on a daily basis in practice, it at least demonstrates that the idea of ​​making a machine take over dog-walking duties is not so far-fetched.

“Stay home to be safe, but don’t forget your dog’s happiness,” he wrote.

113,000 coronavirus recovered bring hope to the world

The new coronavirus has swept the world, infecting more than 475,000 people and killing 20,000 worldwide, leaving a mass hysteria in its wake.

However, statistics on the number of coronavirus cases worldwide may give us hope as countries continue to contain the spread of infections.

More than 113,000 people have recovered from COVID-19, according to at least three sources tracking the coronavirus worldwide.

China, where the new virus emerged, still has the largest number of coronavirus cases (over 81,000), but the country also has the largest share of globally recovered cases at more than 73,000, according to Microsoft’s Bing tracking tool.

But in some European countries, especially Italy and Spain, the death toll is higher than in China. Although Italy has recorded over 69,000 confirmed cases – the second largest number of coronavirus infections – only 9,300 have recovered from COVID-19 so far, and more than 7,500 Italians have died after contracting the virus.

Based on Microsoft’s numbers, this is how other countries compare as of Wednesday evening:


90,036 90,037 Total confirmed cases: 81,218 90,038

  • Active Cases: 4,287

    What “recovery” means depends on the individual, and researchers will figure it out for years. Some patients who had mild symptoms reported feeling good after the illness had passed, while others with more severe cases might have lung damage. This may depend on the person’s age and whether they had any pre-existing medical conditions prior to receiving the coronavirus.

    There are not enough morgues in New York, but what will happen next?

    New York City lacks storage space for the bodies of those who have died from COVID-19, a respiratory illness caused by the new coronavirus that emerged less than 3 months ago, according to

    The city has become the epicenter of the novel coronavirus due to its role as a global hub for travel, tourism and commerce.

    On Wednesday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said during a press conference that the state has over 30,000 confirmed cases.

    “We’re not slowing it down, and it accelerates on its own,” Cuomo said earlier at another press conference on Tuesday.

    He added that the state’s forecast for the hospital beds it will need at the peak of the outbreak is around 140,000, although it currently has only 53,000.

    Global COVID-19 deaths doubled from January to March. Of the 300 known deaths in New York City, 199 are confirmed to have died in the city. Cuomo said the number of cases and deaths will increase in the coming weeks.

    Hospitals across the city are beginning to experience overwork from COVID-19 cases, many of which require intensive and long-term intensive care to treat respiratory distress.

    As more people die from the disease, the relatively small hospital morgues in the area fill up quickly.

    “On Sunday, the morgues were already full,” said the morgue specialist, who asked not to be named due to the delicacy of their work, adding that there are usually only one or two corpses on Sundays.

    As a result of the rise in deaths from COVID-19, relatively small hospital morgues are overcrowded or overwhelmed. When this happens, the person said, the excess bodies are sent to the city’s temporary storage facilities.

    However, even the city is now looking for a private industry to cope with the possible overcrowding of the bodies of the deceased, although this has not yet happened.

    In Ukraine, VIP chambers are being prepared for officials in case of infection with coronavirus

    In connection with the coronavirus epidemic in Ukraine, there was little cause for gloating. All infected officials had to be treated in the state health care system, which they themselves created. After all, developed countries are now all in quarantine, borders are closed, and there are no infectious disease departments in private clinics (this is extremely unprofitable in “peacetime”).Indeed, a lot of our deputies, judges, and officials were infected, and we were looking forward to how they would lie on ordinary beds in shabby government hospitals. But the anticipation was not long. As soon as it was the first to be aware of the coronavirus, an order from the Kiev authorities immediately appeared to equip VIP wards in ordinary hospitals.

    In the list of requirements:
    – a single ward of at least 13 square meters
    – isolated from the rest
    – should be placed closer to the operating room and to other important departments
    – a nurse should be on duty around the clock
    – a separate reserve of medicines should be created.

    How do sanitary services and doctors, who are limited in resources, save themselves from the coronavirus?

    Sanitary services and doctors were not ready for the outbreak of a pandemic, which quickly led to a shortage of both antibacterial agents and self-defense agents. To a greater extent, this is the fault of the states themselves, which did not find the necessary funds to cover demand, at least to some extent.

    So, not counting on the state, many medical orderlies, doctors and doctors independently make masks and other protective elements, using improvised materials for these purposes.
