MEXICO CITY, Sept. 20 (Xinhua) -- Elements from the civil protection corps, Red Cross ECCO Collin Nautical Perf Nere italia , army, police and voluntary civilians worked through the day on Wednesday to remove rubble from collapsed buildings in Mexico City, after the magnitude-7.1 earthquake shook the center of the country on Tuesday.
The civil protection bureau on Wednesday said at least 230 people had died, including 100 dearths in the capital Mexico City.
Over 200 people gathered on the corner of the streets of Salamance, Nuevo Leon and Alvaro Obregon, where rescue workers sifted through the remains of an office block.
"It is thought there are between 40 and 60 people still there, but we don't know their state ECCO Uomo Intrinsic Sandali Nere italia ," one soldier participating in the rescue told Xinhua.
The area remains closed to traffic from the popular Espana Park to the Cibeles roundabout, where around 40 military vehicles are stationed with equipment and goods for the affected population.
The fountain of Cibeles, a famous tourist site in Mexico city, is also acting as a reception center for food, water and hygiene products as well as a first aid area.
"For the moment, only a few people have come with light injuries and another who had a nervous breakdown," one of the volunteers told Xinhua.
Heavy machinery also joined the efforts in Amsterdam Avenue ECCO Uomo Intrinsic 1 Sneakers Bianche italia , one of the emblematic areas of the city, known for its chic atmosphere, filled with cyclists and dog walkers.
Mexico's national coordinator of civil protection, Luis Felipe Puente, said that rescue work had involved 4,169 soldiers, 3 ECCO Uomo Intrinsic 3 Leather Bianche italia ,525 navy elements and 20,057 federal police officers.
In an interview with Televisa, Puente said that people were also trapped in fallen buildings in the northern area of Lindavista.
Another focal point has been the Enrique Rebsamen primary school in the south of the capital, where emergency teams and volunteers searched for over 30 missing children. However, hopes dwindled as the body count from the school passed 22 on Wednesday afternoon.
Mexico City's Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera announced on Wednesday that the number of collapsed buildings had been lowered from 45 to 38 after a complete investigation.
At a press conference, he said 52 people had been pulled alive from the rubble, that all hospitals were operating across the city and that all forms of public transport were running free of charge.
"The rescues are success stories for the rescue workers who are working at every single spot ECCO Fusion Slip On Cocoa Marrone italia ," added Mancera.
The earthquake in Morelos came days after the September 7 quake, which registered 8.2 on the Richter scale, and killed 98 people in the states of Oaxaca, Chiapas and Tabasco.
It also took place on the 32nd anniversary of a massive quake which killed over thousands of people on September 19, 1985.
SYDNEY, Nov. 20 (Xinhua) -- Leading Australian experts have called on the country's governments to hold tobacco companies accountable for damage done to people's health by taking them to court.
In an article published in the Medical Journal of Australia, public health experts from Macquarie University and Curtin University called on state and federal governments to seek remuneration from tobacco companies for the burden put on the public health system by smoking-related illnesses.
The authors ECCO Holton Apron Toe Slip On Nere italia , led by Macquarie University Health Studies lecturer Ross Mackenzie, said that Australia could use Canada, where the province of British Columbia's right to sue the tobacco industry was upheld by the Supreme Court, as a precedent.
"An estimated 2.6 million adult Australians were smokers in 2014, and smoking remains the country's leading preventable cause of death and disease," they wrote.
"It causes 15, 000 deaths annually and is likely to kill two-thirds of current users. Annual health ECCO Uomo Soft 7 Sneakers Marrone italia , social and economic costs of smoking were estimated at more than $31.5 billion in 2008, and are now considered to be substantially greater."
Mackenzie and colleagues said there were lessons to be learnt from the Canadian experience.
"A major recovery in Australian litigation could potentially push an Australian subsidiary of a global cigarette manufacturer into bankruptcy, depriving plaintiffs of the opportunity to recover full damages... (It is) imperative that the parent (tobacco) companies remain as defendants in legal actions in order to satisfy the large damage awards necessary to provide just financial compensation," they said.
"Beyond the potential to recover billions of dollars spent on treatment of diseases caused by smoking, publicity around legal action would also emphasize the health and social impacts of tobacco industry corporate behaviour, furthering the denormalization of smoking in Australia and generating public and political support for further public health measures."
