Sanchez-Ramirez (INAF-IAPS) report:

We observed the afterglow of GRB 190829A (Fermi GBM team, GCN #25551; 
Dichiara et al., GCN #25552), at a redshift of z = 0.0785 (Valeev et al. 
GCN #25565) with NOEMA at 90 GHz. Observations started at 01:26 UT on 31 
August, 29.48 hrs after the GRB. The afterglow is well detected and had 
a flux density of 6.3 mJy at 90 GHz.

We derive the following refined coordinates for the afterglow:

RA. (J2000): 02:58:10.510
Dec (J2000): -08:57:28.44

with an error of +/- 0".1.
