A fourth case of coronavirus in Catalonia has been confirmed late today. This is a 58-year-old woman from Sant Cugat del Vallès, who is hospitalised in a mild state at the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona. The woman had been in contact with a positive case in Germany. She joins three other patients with mild symptoms of coronavirus isolated at the hospital and 'evolving favourably.'
Researchers at a specialised hospital in Milan have managed to isolate the Italian version of the new coronavirus. "The epidemic is not new in the country and the virus has been circulating inadvertently for several weeks, before the first confirmed cases of the disease," said Professor Massimo Galli, a leader of the research team.
Our risk assessment for infection of coronavirus in Barcelona is currently 'low', with caution advised in crowded areas, e.g. public transport, markets. Students should bring hand sanitiser (plenty of regular hand cleaning and avoiding touching the face recommended) and face masks (pro-active caution) in case the alert level rises. Official advice is that the risk varies according to the identified cases and that in the points where there are no positive cases the risk is low or very low.
So far there has been no contagion in Barcelona so protocols 'in phase 1, the containment phase' are being maintained. These focus only on the early detection of the possible infected. Everything is prepared in case the alert level is increased if an outbreak arises. In that case 'similar measures would be taken' to those implemented by other countries, such as Italy.
River Cross Section Creator
Our River Cross Section Maker creates river cross sections from river fieldwork data, calculating the cross sectional area, wetted perimeter, hydraulic radius and discharge. The whole process takes less than five minutes, transforming a previously awkward and often difficult task into a quick and easy one.
Enter river width and depth measurements and your cross section and data are created for download.River channel cross section example
Beach and Dune Profile Creators
Our Sand Dune Profile Maker creates sand dune transect profiles from cumulative distance and slope angle data. Our Beach Profile Creator makes beach profiles from cumulative width and slope angles, calculating the cross sectional area and beach volume. Other beach profile data entry options are available.
Enter your transect cumulative distances and changes in height or slope angle data and your beach or dune profile is created for download.Dune profile example Beach profile example
