Health Ministry’s COVID-19 lab reverses decision to suspend testing following public backlash

Health Ministry’s COVID-19 lab reverses decision to suspend testing following public backlash

first_imgThe Health Ministry’s Jakarta Environmental Health and Disease Control Center (BBTKLPP) has stated that it will continue receiving and testing COVID-19 samples throughout the Idul Fitri holiday season, just one day after issuing a letter saying it would not accept samples between May 20 and 26.In a letter issued on Saturday, BBTKLPP Jakarta head Naning Nugrahini said that the laboratory would continue to provide its services during the holidays.Perang Dunia dengan Covid-19 belum selesai, kita tidak akan pernah menyerah dan berdamai. Lab Jakarta (BBTKL & PP) BATAL LIBUR, bahkan kesiagaan lab terus ditingkatkan, layanan 24/7. Siap menghadapi serangan hari Ied, mudik, dan mudik balik. https://t.co/kkIohPzCmi pic.twitter.com/V5B4zhEw6R— Pandu Riono (@drpriono) May 16, 2020“Considering that the COVID-19 pandemic has continued unabated, BBTKLPP Jakarta will keep providing its usual services, namely receiving samples 24 hours, seven days a week,” Naning said. In a previous letter dated on Friday, Naning had said that the BBTKLPP would cease all activities related to COVID-19 sample testing from May 20 to 26 due to the Idul Fitri holiday.A copy of the letter went viral on social media, drawing public outcry, with social media users conveying their concerns over a possible surge in undetected COVID-19 cases during the holiday.Yth SARSCov2, sehubungan Hari Raya Ied 1441H, mohon cuti menularkan karena layanan tes libur.

The lab is only able to extract 270 samples per day, about half of its maximum polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing capacity of 558 samples per day.She added that she initially planned to give BBTKLPP employees the opportunity to gather with their families on the first day of the holiday.“We actually only wanted to put the brakes on the volume of samples [we receive], but I couldn’t possibly say so in the letter,” Naning said, adding that she would retract her previous letter.According to the official government count, Indonesia had 17,025 confirmed COVID-19 cases with 1,089 deaths as of Saturday.

Glico in GHC 50,000 insurance cover for Coach Kwasi Appiah

Glico in GHC 50,000 insurance cover for Coach Kwasi Appiah

first_imgGlico Group of Companies have taken the responsibility of insuring the Coach of the Senior National team James Akwasi Appiah to the tune of GHC 50,000.This presentation was made at brief ceremony at the Ghana Football Association Headquarters today. According to Glico, the decision to honour Coach Appiah was as result of the destitute nature of most of the former players who have featured for the Black Stars over the years.General Manager in charge of Pensions and Trustees, Dr Francis Grant was of the opinion that the company saw it right to undertake this venture for the period in which Appiah was coach of the Black Stars to alleviate any unforeseen challenges that may arise when he is no more in charge of the team.Executive Committee member of the Ghana Football Association Mr. George Afriyie who stood in for FA President Kwesi Nyantakyi also took the opportunity to urge the Insurance Company to look at the other National products like the junior teams which also need the support of corporate institutions.He added that, though the Black Stars was the biggest sporting brand, the corporate world should also consider supporting the other sports brands. The company also made a personal donation to of GHC 2,000.00 and Glico branded T-shirts to the Stars Head Coach and promised to support him to meet his targets.Coach Kwasi Appiah expressed gratitude to Glico and promised to do his best as coach of the National team.In a gesture that will clearly touch the hearts and minds of Ghanaians, Appiah immediately donated a GHC 1000.00 of the amount to the Retired Footballers Association of Ghana and a further GHC 500.00 each to Messrs Jones Attuquayefio and Emmanuel Quarshie who have been battling life threatening ailments over the last few years.Attuquayefio has been battling throat cancer while Quarshie recently benefited from the benevolence of former club and Egyptian giants Zamalek who sponsored an all expenses paid trip to Cairo for the ex stars coach to be treated of the Parkinson disease.last_img read more

Professional boxers can compete at Rio Olympics

Professional boxers can compete at Rio Olympics

first_imgLausanne, Switzerland | AFP |Professional boxers can compete at the upcoming Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, the sport’s governing body ruled in a landmark decision on Wednesday.But it is unlikely to see boxing’s biggest names enter the Olympic ring in Rio — for most professionals, like former heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, it is already too late to take part in a qualifying contest.The last tournament is in Venezuela in July.Meeting at an extraordinary congress in Lausanne, Switzerland, 95 percent of the AIBA delegates voted in favour of the controversial move, an AIBA statement said.“This is a momentous occasion for AIBA, for Olympic boxing, and for our sport as a whole, and represents another great leap forward in the evolution of boxing,” AIBA chief Wu Ching-Kuo said.In an interview with AFP, Wu described Wednesday’s vote as “a first step”, adding that among the 28 sporting disciplines represented in Rio, boxing was the only one with restrictions on professional athletes.Wu has aggressively supported the move, just the latest in a series of changes to Olympic boxing in recent years. Women were allowed into Olympic competition in 2012 and headguards will no longer be compulsory from Rio.Proponents of the latest change argue that the admission of professional basketball to the Olympics in time for the 1992 Games in Barcelona helped make men’s basketball one of the most hotly anticipated events of the Games.Tough criticismThere is a rich history of fighters making their name at the Olympics before moving on to have groundbreaking professional careers, including Muhammad Ali, who won gold at the Rome Games in 1960, when still known as Cassius Clay.But the move has not convinced everyone, including former gold medallist and world heavyweight title-holder Lennox Lewis, who said it was “preposterous”.Former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson last month judged the move as “ridiculous” and “stupid”, condemning the plan as a bid “to monetise Olympic boxing”.But British boxer Amir Khan on Wednesday hailed the decision and said he wanted to represent the country of his parents’ birth, Pakistan. Khan, born and raised in Bolton, England, won a silver medal in the lightweight category of the 2004 Athens Olympics before turning professional a year later.“If I am permitted as per rules and from my promoter then I would love to compete for Pakistan,” he said at a press conference.Pakistan Boxing Federation secretary Iqbal Hussain told AFP he was thrilled at the prospect of “hero” Khan representing the country.Philippine legend Manny Pacquiao, who won world titles at eight different weight categories, had also hinted he was interested but said this week he would concentrate on his burgeoning political career. Doping concernsAIBA will have to answer questions about its dope-testing policy in order to satisfy the International Olympic Committee, which is embroiled in a series of doping scandals and is battling to keep drug cheats out of the Rio Games.AIBA revealed on Wednesday that Turkish boxer Adem Kilicci was amongst the 23 athletes whose retested doping samples from the London 2012 Games have come up positive.Kilicci, who fought at under-75kg in London, had also qualified for the Rio Games but is suspended while waiting for the results of his B test.AIBA has come under fire for its dope-testing record after British magazine Private Eye reported that a World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) report found AIBA had not carried out any out-of-competition tests in the year ahead of Rio, and hardly any in the past three years.The report was quoted as saying that AIBA’s actions fell “considerably short” of WADA’s requirements.WADA spokesman Ben Nichols confirmed that the agency’s inspection team had given AIBA recommendations aimed at “improving and enhancing” its anti-doping programme, on which the boxing governing body has started working.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Gopal Challenges Beck for Senate Seat

Gopal Challenges Beck for Senate Seat

first_img“It’s time for a change,” he said.Beck this week released a statement where she was quick to counterpunch against the prospective opponent.She called Gopal “Camden County’s hand-picked candidate,” looking to link the Monmouth County Democrat to the Norcross South Jersey Democratic machine, which has provided financial support for some Monmouth County races in the past.Beck continued by alleging Gopal had “decided that the only path to victory is to try and discredit his opponent rather than speaking about his accomplishments.”Gopal was planning to resign as county chair effective Thursday at noon. Vice Chair woman Mary Forster, Middletown, will step up and serve as acting county chair until a county convention can be convened to name Gopal’s replacement, he said. The 11th District has Allenhurst, Asbury Park, Colts Neck, Deal, Eatontown, Freehold Borough and Township, Interlaken, Loch Arbour, Long Branch, Neptune City, Neptune Township, Ocean, Red Bank, Shrewsbury Borough and Township, Tinton Falls and West Long Branch.Monmouth County has largely remained solidly Republican for its state legislators for years, with an occasional Democratic victory. With the most redistricting completed in 2011, the district skews more Democratic with such strongholds as Red Bank, Long Branch and Asbury Park, but Republicans had been able to continue to secure the two Assembly seats and Senate seat in Trenton. That is until November 2015, when an influx of cash and an indifferent GOP campaign caught the Republicans flat-footed, with Democratic challengers Eric Houghtaling and Joann Downey ousting Assembly-women Mary Pat Angelini and Caroline Casagrande. After years of building, his business ventures have reached a point where he can step back and concentrate on his own political campaign, Gopal said.Gopal made an unsuccessful run for the Assembly in 2011.Gopal criticized Beck for lack of progress, even with eight years of a Republican governor. He also chided the incumbent for flip-flopping on a variety of issues during her legislative tenure. “I think she’s been on both sides of nearly every issue,” he charged, pointing to Beck’s views on different property tax relief proposals and gay marriage. With the end of Republican Chris Christie’s increasingly unpopular gubernatorial term this year and a wide-open Governor’s race, Democrats suspect there is opportunity to increase their legislative majority and take additional seats in deeply red Monmouth County.And while he is an entrenched party voice (but is genuinely liked by many Republicans) Gopal said this week “I’ll tell you I’ll go there (Trenton) and be an independent voice of the people of the 11th District.”center_img Gopal said there have been a handful of candidates who’ve expressed an interest in taking the reins, though he declined to name them.There were two other Democrats who were considering seeking the 11th District nomination, who Gopal said, now voice support for his campaign.Gopal has been critical of Monmouth County Republican Chairman Shaun Golden for holding the party position as well as serving as county sheriff, an elected position. Gopal charged that Golden holding both jobs opens the door to ethical conflicts of interest. “And I’m not going to be hypocritical,” leading to his stepping down as the county party head. By John BurtonTwo days into the new year and political attention is turning toward the coming political races, with county Democratic chair Vin Gopal announcing his intention to take on Republican Senator Jennifer Beck.Gopal on Monday fired the first salvo in the race for the 11th Legislative District with his announcement to run for the party’s nomination for the Senate seat.“I really think I bring a different set of eyes to some of the problems we’re facing in Trenton,” Gopal said this week.He hopes to challenge Beck, 50, a Red Bank resident who has been in the Senate since 2008, having served one two-year term in the Assembly.Gopal is a 31-year-old Long Branch resident who has been the county Democratic chair since 2012. He owns and operates Direct Development, a Hazlet-based marketing, public relations and business development firm. In addition, Gopal publishes Community Magazine, a free publication which is distributed to approximately 30,000 homes around Monmouth County. He has been a board of director’s member for the Monmouth County Chamber of Commerce. He also has established a not-for-profit organization that assists local charities.last_img read more

Day after arrest, editor of Srinagar-based Urdu daily gets bail in 28-year-old case

first_imgSrinagar-based Urdu daily Aafaq’s editor and owner Ghulam Jeelani Qadri, 62, on Tuesday was granted bail by the local court, a day after he was arrested in a 28-year-old-case.While granting bail, the Chief Judicial Magistrate sought appearance of the local police officer on July 31 “to explain delay in execution of the warrants issued 26 years ago against Mr. Qadri.” It also asked the police to explain the “steps taken to produce the editor before the court, before declaring him an absconder.”The court asked the police to explain how Mr. Qadri was issued passport twice in the past “if he was an absconder.”Qadri, 62, was arrested around 11.30 p.m. on Monday, when he had just reached home from his office. The police executed an old summon in a case registered in the Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (TADA) court 28 years ago. Kashmir’s senior journalists and editors attended the court all day “as a mark of solidarity with the editor.”A case was registered against Mr. Qadri and seven others, including three Valley-based editors, on December 15, 1990 for circulating news and press statements issued by the militant outfits through a news agency, despite a ban on the circulation of newspapers then.”Mr. Qadri’s younger brother Morifat Qadri told The Hindu that the editor was not allowed to even step inside the house or change his clothes or get his medicine. “He would have presented himself before the police in case of any summons. The way the arrest was made shows that the aim was to harass him and his family without any rhyme or reason,” Mr. Qadri added.Shocking incident: Editors GuildThe Kashmir Editors Guild (KEG), a body of editors of Kashmir, termed the raid as “shocking”.“It is still not known why Mr. Qadri was singled out for allegedly defying the due process of law in a case he is not aware about. The KEG regrets the way a senior editor was declared proclaimed offender in books and finally arrested during the dead of the night,” the KEG spokesman said.The group said Mr. Qadri’s arrest has also led to the delay in the electoral process of the Kashmir Press Club.last_img read more

Ashes ‘the biggest challenge’ for Steve Smith, says Ricky Ponting

Ashes ‘the biggest challenge’ for Steve Smith, says Ricky Ponting

first_imgFormer Australia skipper Ricky Ponting believes the upcoming Ashes series against England will be the biggest challenge for current skipper Steve Smith.Australia have not been the greatest of their forms in the recent past. After a 1-2 drubbing in the four-match Test series against India, they were knocked of the Champions Trophy in the group stage.”(Smith) has got his biggest challenge coming up,” Ponting was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au.”An Ashes series as an Australian or England captain is the biggest thing that you play for and the biggest thing of your captaincy life,” he added.Ponting, who led Australia to 48 Tests wins – the most by any Australian, further proclaimed that Smith’s career as captain will be judged on winning the Ashes.”Fortunately or unfortunately, it’s those series that you are remembered for as a leader and as a player as well,” he asserted.The 28-year-old has polished off 2,711 runs at an average of 73.27 with 12 centuries. However, his leadership turned a corner after the humiliation in Hobart last summer when South Africa defeated Australia to secure the Test and wrap up the series with a match to spare.In 24 Tests as skipper, Smith has 12 wins, seven loss and five draws to his name. And Ponting seems impressed with his captaincy so far and concedes that Smith has done a terrific job while leading the team.”I think Steve Smith has done a terrific job captaining the Australian team,” Ponting said.”He’s got a very level head on his shoulders, he’s obviously playing the best cricket of his life right at the moment, which says a lot about how the responsibility sits with him,” he added.advertisementThe five-match Ashes series will begin on November 23 at the Gabba, Brisbane followed by matches at Adelaide Oval (December 2-6), WACA (December 14-18), MCG (December 26-30) and SCG (January 4-8).last_img read more
