  • Deaf community faces social isolation and new barriers amid pandemic

    Brussels, Nov 19 (EFE), (Camera: Leopoldo Rodríguez).- Social isolation, problems with teleworking due to the dependence on an interpreter or the inability to read lips to communicate. These are some of the challenges the deaf community is facing amid the coronavirus pandemic. For this reason, the municipality of Anderlecht in Brussels has launched an initiative to fabricate transparent masks. FOOTAGE OF THE WORKSHOP WHERE TRANSPARENT MASKS ARE MADE. SOUNDBITES OF:JÉRÉMIE DROUART, EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES COUNCILOR OF THE ANDERLECHT COMMUNE IN BRUSSELS. "The different Belgian governments, federal, regional and local, distributed masks for the entire population, but we realized that they did not do so for certain types of people, such as deaf people, who need to read lips. Therefore we had the idea of ??making masks so that these people could communicate with their environment.""It is a mixture of fabric and plastic, we have done an analysis to find the highest quality plastic which, at the same time, is not toxic for the people who use it. They had to meet sanitary conditions and be easy to use." "It is a social integration company, it helps workers to reintegrate into the world of work. It has a social perspective and is located in the Anderlecht neighborhood, so it can be said that it is made in Anderlecht."MARK WHEATLEY, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE EUROPEAN UNION OF THE DEAF.

  • Metro Manila, 4 other areas return to stricter lockdown amid virus surge

    Metro Manila, Aug 4 (EFE/EPA).- Philippines on Tuesday reimposed a stricter lockdown in the capital Manila and its adjoining provinces following an appeal by the medical community for more effective measures to curb transmission rates amid an increase in coronavirus infections which have already surpassed 100,000. The new lockdown which comes into force Tuesday will completely restrict the movement of people, public transport has been suspended and only one family member can go out to buy essential items. Hairdressers, restaurants and other stores that had reopened in June will close again. The fresh measures in the capital, where 67 percent of the country's industrial activity is located, could have a detrimental economic impact at a time when the country is already suffering from heavy losses. The Philippines is expected to go into recession for the first time since 1998 with 10 million people losing jobs by the end of the year. (Camera: FRANCIS MALASIG).

  • Trans community in Spain calls for inclusion amid pandemic

    Madrid, Jun 9 (EFE) .- The LGBTQ community is one of those minorities that could benefit from the atypical circumstances due to the coronavirus pandemic in terms of job opportunities. SOUNDBITES OF:-BRITTANY CHAVARRÍA:"In the streets, we suffer discrimination and when you're a trans or part of the LGBTQ community and try to find a job or you want to study, they 'll send you to the streets.""Some people are at risk of dying. In my case, since I'm a determined person, I suffered a lot during the first months and during the time I worked in Costa Rica I was between life and death for three months. They brought me to the hospital, I spent two months and 26 days in a very bad condition." -JORGE GUERRA:"It's very difficult to picture the job reality of trans community in Spain because there is no reliable data or figures. It's a fact that the unemployment rate (among this community) is very high comparing it to the rest of the population and it's also a fact that their job reality is linked to precarious, irregular jobs...and sometimes is connected with sex."
