Considerable part of Portuguese population ‘presenting light symptoms of depression’
A considerable part of the Portuguese population are presenting “light symptoms of depression” due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This is one of the conclusions of an international study in which Portugal’s institute of investigation and innovation in health (i3s) at Porto University took part. The ‘Life with Corona’ study aims to “continue to evaluate the social and economic impact of the pandemic on a global scale”. Light symoptoms sounds reaonable given the cataclysmic effects on everyday life: it is only further down in reports published today that investigators admit “around 50% of people quizzed in Portugal, Argentina, Indonesia, the UK and US, as well as 40% of Germans “showed more serious symptoms of depression”.
Today, 1 year ago, Genesis Breyer P Orridge passed away. In memory some unpublished material from my private archive. Film recordings from a soundcheck in 2009 at the Express Festival, Arena Puccini, Bologna Italy. Date: 28 May 2009. David (guitar) carried a camera on that tour. He stuck it on the side of the stage filming the soundcheck. Further musicians are Edley (drums), Gila (bass) who replaces Alice on this one tour, Jess (Keyboard) who passed away last month and of course Genesis Breyer P Orridge. Notice the positive atmosphere and joking I will miss a lot. It was always great fun touring with PTV. Songs performed: Kiss Me, Higher And Higher, Papal Breakdance.
