谷歌投资了10亿美元来缓解它造成的住房问题

美联社

旧金山消息,谷歌正投入10亿美元来缓解高价住房带来的麻烦,这是谷歌和它的硅谷同行给旧金山湾区带来的麻烦。

谷歌首席执行长皮查伊(Sundar Pichai)周二宣布的承诺包括一只2.5亿美元的投资基金和7.5亿美元的公司拥有的土地。它将被用于建造至少15000套住房,其中包括中低收入住房

谷歌的承诺令微软(Microsoft)最近承诺提供5亿美元以解决西雅图地区的住房短缺问题,以及包括Facebook在内的一个财团创建的5亿美元住房基金相形见绌。

谷歌正伸出援助之手,计划向加州山景城总部以外的地方扩张。自从谷歌在1998年成立后不久搬到这个拥有大约8万人口的郊区城市以来,这里已经挤满了富裕的科技工作者。谷歌AR“测量”应用程序将安卓手机变成虚拟测量毡新白涂料能减少空调需求吗?将在4个机场软推出联系人追踪应用

从那以后,谷歌及其母公司Alphabet Inc.的员工数量已经从几十人增加到逾10.3万人。这些工人中有近一半在湾区工作。

在谷歌不断扩张的同时,包括苹果、Facebook、甲骨文(Oracle)、Salesforce和Netflix在内的许多其他科技公司也在不断扩张——这些公司都为员工提供了六位数的薪水和股票期权,这可能会带来数百万美元的意外之财。

高收入导致了对湾区有限的住房的竞购战,这些住房只有富人才能买得起,科技工作者越来越多地是这一群体的主体,而从事其他行业的人只能靠更微薄的收入勉强维持生计。

根据行业组织加州房地产经纪人协会(California Association of Realtors)的数据,在湾区(Bay Area),一套中等价位的房子在4月份的售价为99万美元(约合人民币930万元)。1999年,一套中等价位的住宅售价为30.8万美元。

旧金山的情况更糟,许多科技工作者从旧金山乘坐公司大巴前往硅谷郊区。据房地产经纪人说,4月份旧金山一套中等价位的房子以近170万美元的价格售出。价格是20年前的四倍。

谷歌的下一个大项目将在湾区人口最多的城市圣何塞进行。谷歌计划在圣何塞建造一个由办公室和住宅组成的企业园区,1.5万至2万名员工将在这里工作和生活。

该项目面临着社区活动人士的抵制,他们担心这会对房价产生影响。上周,工作伙伴关系的一份报告呼吁谷歌在该地区建造1.7万套住房,以帮助抵消新校区带来的预期价格上涨。这份由工会支持的劳工组织发布的报告预计,如果不采取行动,到2030年公寓租金将上涨2.35亿美元

几个月来,我们鼓励谷歌做出大胆承诺,解决我们地区的经济适用房挑战,圣何塞市长Sam Liccardo在一份声明中对该公司10亿美元的承诺表示赞赏。

Richter speculated that since the patient was hospitalized and likely received various drugs, that might have been the cause.

That is possible, agreed Dr. Sonal Tuli, a clinical spokeswoman for the American Academy of Ophthalmology and chairwoman of ophthalmology at the University of Florida College of Medicine, in Gainesville.

Tuli said the patient's case is "interesting," but leaves open a number of questions. One is whether the virus present in the eye tissue is actually infectious.

The patient was a 64-year-old woman who was hospitalized for COVID-19 on Jan. 31. Eighteen days later, her symptoms had fully resolved, and throat swabs turned up negative for SARS-CoV-2.

About a week later, though, she developed pain and vision loss in one eye, and then in her other eye a few days afterward, according to the report by Dr. Ying Yan and colleagues at the General Hospital of the Central Theater Command in Wuhan, China.

The patient landed in the hospital again, where she was diagnosed with acute angle-closure glaucoma and cataract. Medication failed to bring down her eye pressure, so her doctors performed surgery -- taking tissue samples in the process.

Tests of those samples turned up evidence that SARS-CoV-2 had invaded the eye tissues, Yan's team reported.

While it's not clear how the virus got into the patient's eyes, the experts agreed the case underscores the importance of eye protection. For health care providers, that means goggles and face shields; for the average person, it's regular hand-washing and keeping the hands away from the eyes.

"I think people don't realize how often they touch their eyes," Tuli said.

That advice will reduce the chance of any virus, including cold and flu bugs, from coming into contact with the eyes, she noted.

While that may be enough in most cases, people caring for someone with COVID-19 at home may want to be extra cautious, Tuli suggested. Wearing eye protection in addition to a mask is a "good idea," she said.
