Sweden has not imposed the extraordinary lockdown measures seen across Europe, instead urging people to take responsibility and follow official recommendations. Gatherings of more than 50 people have been barred along with visits to nursing homes.The strategy has come under scrutiny since its mortality rates leapt ahead of its Nordic neighbors, Finland, Denmark and Norway, which have all instituted more restrictive containment measures.On Thursday, the Karolinska University Hospital confirmed that a 40-year-old nurse, who had tested positive for COVID-19, had died.The hospital however stressed to broadcaster SVT that while the nurse was on sick leave for symptoms relating to COVID-19, the cause of death had not yet been confirmed. Topics : Swedish officials said on Thursday they had recorded more than 2,000 deaths from COVID-19 in the country, while revising earlier statements about when the capital Stockholm was believed to have passed the peak of infections.The Public Health Agency of Sweden said it had recorded 16,755 confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus, and 2,021 deaths.The agency also corrected a report it published earlier this week on Stockholm, the epicenter of the Swedish epidemic. The report, based on statistical modeling, initially said the capital region passed the peak of simultaneous infections on April 15 with 86,000 people believed to be have been infected.But on Thursday it revised the date to April 8, with some 70,500 believed to have been infected.”The number of infected is still at a high level, now is not the time to ease any cautionary measures,” deputy state epidemiologist Anders Wallensten said in a statement.The agency also said in the report that it expected 26 percent of Stockholmers to be infected with the new coronavirus by May 1.
Offshore Energy Today Staff Brazilian oil company Petrobras has made an oil discovery in the Campos Basin’s pre-salt layer, in the area of Marlim Sul field.This is the first commercial discovery of oil in the pre-salt layer of the Marlim Sul area. The discovery occurred during drilling of Poraquê Alto well, at final depth of 4,568 m.The well which identified the discovery is located 115 km off the coast of Rio de Janeiro State, at 1,107 m water depth.The discovery was confirmed by profile data, gas detector, formation testing by cable, and fluid samples. The analysis of current data indicates carbonate reservoirs of good porosity and permeability features, at 4,420 m depth and 45 m thick with oil presence, Petrobras said.“This result demonstrates the potential for new discoveries in mature basins, with production infrastructure already deployed,” Petrobras said.FPSO scrappedInterestingly, this is not the first time this week Offshore Energy Today has reported on the Marlim Sul area.OET on Wednesday published an article on SBM Offshore selling its previously demobilized FPSO Marlim Sul for recycling.SBM said in its 2017 half-year financial results this week that the FPSO, removed from the Petrobras-operated oil field, was sold for recycling and transferred off the balance sheet in July 2017.The FPSO Marlim Sul worked at the Marlim Sul field for Petrobras for over a decade before the end of service. The vessel had been delivered to SBM by Keppel, following a conversion from a VLCC in 2004.Worth noting, the FPSO was not the only production unit at the field. Currently, Petrobras is using the P-56 semi-submersible platform for oil production at the Marlim Sul.
Batesville, In. — Since the election of President Donald Trump gun sales have declined, in 2018 gun sales were down 6.1-percent. For states that depend on the economic impact of firearms this could be a bad thing.A panel of researchers from WalletHub combed over data from all 50 states to determine what states are the most dependent on the gun industry. Kentucky hit the list at 7, Indiana was 16 and Ohio ranked as the 29th most dependent state on the gun industry.A link to the complete study is here.

By the time Manchester United receive their prize following next Sunday’s final home game against Swansea, it will be three weeks since the victory over Aston Villa that clinched the success. That Van Persie scored a hat-trick that night is fitting given the 29-year-old’s contribution has been widely acknowledged as the key to United’s 20th championship. For a player who left Arsenal to compete for major honours rather than a battle to retain a place in the top four, it means next weekend cannot come quickly enough. “It is the feeling you dream of,” Van Persie told United Review. Press Association “Everything is about lifting the trophy. There were some great pictures taken after the Aston Villa game, but there was one thing missing from them all; the trophy. That’s the picture that will be framed in my house; me, lifting the Barclays Premier League trophy. I can’t wait for that moment.” It did seem something of a gamble for both player and club to make such a significant switch last summer. However, it did not take Van Persie, nor manager Sir Alex Ferguson, long to realise they had made exactly the right move. “I wouldn’t have moved if I’d had doubts,” he said. “Instead, from day one I was almost certain we would win trophies – not in a couple of years but this year. “I saw the players in training. I saw the way they behaved, the way they lived, their mentality, the way the staff worked, the way the manager and the staff acted. When all those elements combine you end up with a team of champions. It also helps when you have so many players who know how to win.” Van Persie missed out to Gareth Bale in the voting for the PFA and FWA awards which he collected last season. As consolation it seems certain Van Persie will end up with the Premier League Golden Boot for the second year running. Not that Van Persie regards the Golden Boot prize as a personal honour anyway. “In a way, it is not an honest award,” he said. “Even if you end up with the most goals in a season, those goals are the team’s goals and many will have been made possible by other players. They should make a Golden Boot for the whole team. “It would be nice (to win it), but the main thing for me was to win the league. Even if I’d scored half the number of goals and we’d won the league I would still have been happy.” Robin van Persie cannot wait to get his hands on the Premier League trophy.
