Would you invite a stranger into your home, share photos and share some of the most intimate details of your life with them?”.“From the moment our children are born we look after them, teaching them the safe cross code etcetera, yet the internet is thrown at them without rules or guidelines”’ Dr. Griffin stated.She also discussed the growing issue of ‘Facebook Depression’ where people are presenting signs of being ‘clinically depressed’ from Facebook use.“Some people spend so much time on Facebook they start to judge their own life from what they see online. They see a friend’s pages with pictures of them on holidays and feel their own life is inadequate, but what they are seeing is the edited highlights of someone’s life”,  she explained.Dermot Troy, Limerick Youth Service, urged people who have concerns about sites such as Facebook or SnapChat to contact Limerick Youth Service.“People of all ages can have issues with social networking but the key is educating and understanding how the respective sites work”, said Mr. Troy who echoed Dr. Griffin’s suggestion to ‘instil a sense of caution not fear’ when surfing the web. #SaucySoul: Room 58 – ‘Hate To See You Leave’ Twitter #HearThis: New music and video from Limerick rapper Strange Boy Limerick Youth Service Calling for Additional Investment in Youth Work Sector Previous articleMother’s excuse for elaborate forged licence was unbelievableNext article#LimerickLive: Girl Band Editor last_img read more

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. Juga banyak penduduk bersilaturahmi, bepergian ke sanak family. 🙏🏳🤦‍♂️🇮🇩 #indonesiaterserah pic.twitter.com/cRuba6N8wZ— Pandu Riono (@drpriono) May 16, 2020“The curve will finally be flattened… because no one will be tested,” one Twitter user wrote. “Prank of the year.”Wahh curva bakal rata dong akhirnya…krn gak ada yg dites wkwkkkk prank of the year 🤣🤣 @KemenkesRI— ☕📖 (@apaancimah) May 16, 2020Naning said on Saturday that she had issued the letter because BBTKLPP Jakarta already had a massive backlog of samples due for testing. “[The number] of samples we received exceeded our [testing] capacity,” she said as quoted by tempo.co, adding that the laboratory had received 600 samples per day this month, up from 500 per day in April.Naning said that, prior to being tested, the samples must first undergo a manual extraction procedure. 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.
