  • Portugal: Flats in Lisbon earmarked for low-income families as tourism plummets

    Property prices in the Portuguese capital Lisbon have risen by more than 60 percent in just three years, with many apartments used mainly as holiday rentals. But now, with a major drop in tourists due to the Covid-19 pandemic, these flats are empty and the city authorities are hoping to convince landlords to rent them out to low-income families, who have largely been priced out of their own city. Our correspondents report on the programme known as Renda Segura.

  • How They Blew It: Why Two Major Cities Are Dropping Google's COVID-19 Testing Program

    Gizmodo reports San Francisco and Alameda counties in California have stopped using Verily to test for the novel coronavirus. Google's health-centered sister company launched a $55 million pilot COVID-19 testing program earlier this year to set up mobile and stationary test sites. However, Verily’s services weren’t geared towards filling the needs of communities especially vulnerable to the pandemic. Specifically, the services put people of color, those with low income, and the homeless at a disadvantage for using Verily's site and accessing test results. Another complaint was that Verily reserves the right to use collected data for 'commercial product research and development.' While Verily says strict privacy controls are in place, critics say the system may still violate federal health data privacy laws.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
