Two female penguins from an aquarium in Valencia, Spain, became parents after hatching someone else's fertilized egg. This case is reported by the Daily Mail.

The causes of the spread of coronavirus in the United States are named

One of the leading American virologists, Konstantin Chumakov, cited high population mobility and too weak quarantine measures as the reasons for the widespread spread of coronavirus in the United States.

A chemical substance was found on Navalny’s clothes and hair

The industrial chemical 2-ethylhexyl diphenyl phosphate was found on the clothes, hands, nails and hair of opposition leader Alexey Navalny, who was hospitalized in Omsk. This is reported on the website of the Ministry of internal Affairs of the Omsk region with reference to the results of chromatographic research. The Agency added that the concentration of the substance in the study "is not possible to establish."
