Indonesian medical workers threaten to stop COVID-19 treatment if protective gear not provided

first_imgThe associations asserted that medical workers were susceptible to the disease, especially the ones handling people infected by COVID-19 without wearing protective equipment. The equipment shortage, they argued, would not only harm the lives of medical workers, but also cause disruption in medical services.Read also: COVID-19: Inadequate medical supplies take toll on lives of Indonesian medical workersThe statement was issued in the wake of the death of at least 10 medical workers who struggled in treating COVID-19 patients over the past few weeks.Despite the woeful reality, Daeng said there still might be a few medical workers who courageously went to save COVID-19 patients’ lives despite wearing no protective equipment. Such concern also urged the associations to issue the statement. “We are also raising concern over the matter because infected medical workers will only add to the burden on their colleagues,” he added.In a bid to protect the safety of medical workers treating the disease, the IDI and the PDGI also issued a circular containing COVID-19 prevention guidelines for medical workers. The circular, he said, had been disseminated to all medical facilities along with the statement on Friday.“We acknowledge that the guidelines are not perfect. However, we hope that the management of the medical facilities will follow what we have suggested,” Daeng said.Since mid-February, Indonesia’s health workers, doctors and nurses have been working overtime to treat COVID-19 cases, despite many of them having inadequate personal protection. Many of the medical workers were found to have worn makeshift personal protective gear, including raincoats, in lieu of hazmat suits.Read also: Indonesian fashion designers help sew, donate protective gear for medical workersTo address the issue, the Indonesian Military (TNI) has been distributing 151,000 pieces of protective equipment from the national warehouse at Halim Perdanakusuma Air Base for the past week. The distribution, however, has drastically decreased the supply of the equipment as only 19,000 pieces of equipment remain in stock from the initial 170,000.Coordinating Political, Legal and Security Affairs Minister Mahfud MD admitted that the stock was inadequate to accommodate medical workers across the country as Indonesia needed millions of pieces of protective equipment until September, according to the government’s worst-case scenario of the pandemic.However, he said the government had conducted a meeting regarding the issue on Friday to prepare the budget and the distribution mechanism of the equipment.“We were slightly worried after realizing that the equipment had started to run out, but we have prepared the budget to buy more,” Mahfud said during a press briefing on Friday. “We are optimistic to address the issue since many local manufacturers have also committed to producing more protective equipment.” (glh)Topics : Medical worker associations in the country have threatened to stop treating COVID-19 patients if the government does not ensure the availability of protective health gear amid a shortage of such equipment.The warning was stipulated in a joint statement issued on Friday by several medical worker associations, including the Indonesian Medical Association (IDI), the Indonesian Dentist Association (PDGI) and the Indonesian Nurses Association (PPNI).IDI chairman Daeng M. Faqih confirmed the joint statement: “We issued it for the sake of our colleagues’ safety. If they are infected with the disease, who will treat patients at medical facilities?” he told The Jakarta Post on Saturday.last_img read more

New charitable alliance formed to fight Emerald Ash Borer

first_imgAlmost 150 million ash trees in Indiana are in danger.Photo: Troy McCormickIndianapolis, In. — Today, the emerald ash borer continues to ravage woodlands in every county in Indiana. But the dreaded pest faces ramped-up resistance in the form of treatments funded by a growing group of citizens and organizations.Now, a $20,000 grant from the Dr. Laura Hare Charitable Trust and additional donations, the Indiana Parks Alliance have topped the initial fundraising goal by raising $28,770 to combat the invasive insect that attacks and destroys ash trees.The funds will be used in IPA’s Save Our Ash Trees campaign to initially treat 100 mature, seed producing ash trees at several state parks and state nature preserves. EABs have been found in all 92 Indiana counties, and projections point to a potential 95 percent loss of the state’s ash trees over the next decade. “Nothing makes your day like coming home, sitting down at the computer and reading in an email that your organization has been awarded a $20,000 grant for your first major fundraising campaign,” said Tom Hohman, president of IPA, a volunteer organization that supports the missions of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources divisions of State Parks and Nature Preserves.“This not only allows us to meet our original goal of $20,000 but also gives us reserve funds for necessary retreatments in another two to three years, and to consider expanding the program to additional properties,” Hohman said.In addition to the Laura Hare grant, IPA received donations of $1,000 from Friends of McCormick’s Creek State Park and the Indiana Native Plant & Wildflower Society, $700 from Friends of Fort Harrison State Park, and $250 from Friends of Limberlost State Historic Site.Another 33 individual donors made contributions ranging from $10 to $1,000.“While the $20,000 grant is the big news, it’s important to recognize the other donations,” Hohman said. “All of those donations have made this campaign a great success.”The SOAT fundraising campaign is ongoing. Visit www.indianaparksalliance.org/save-our-ash-trees/ to donate online.Emerald ash borers are invasive insects that have destroyed tens of millions of ash trees since arriving in the United States in 2002. Ash trees compose up to 20 percent of Indiana’s private and public forests.SOAT has identified ash trees at Harmonie, McCormick’s Creek, Shades, and Turkey Run state parks, and at Coal Hollow, Russell Bend, and Shrader-Weaver nature preserves that have been relatively unaffected by EABs.The trees will be injected with emamectin benzoate, an insecticide that causes insect paralysis. The U.S Forest Service uses emamectin benzoate to control emerald ash borers, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency designates it as a reduced risk insecticide. The average cost of treating one mature ash tree is $200.IPA’s treatment project will bolster an effort begun last year by DNR Nature Preserves, which treated 100 ash trees at nine state-managed properties.last_img read more

FIFA investigates West Ham over transfer record payment

first_imgWorld’s football governing body, FIFA, is probing the English side, West Ham for missing a £5.4million payment to Eintracht Frankfurt in relation to Sebastien Haller’s transfer. fifa to name women world cup host 2023 The money was due to the Bundesliga side on May 15 but the Hammers failed to cough up and Frankfurt reported them to the governing body. But a source close to the deal told SunSport the East Londoners are confident a payment will be made soon and the issue resolved. The delay was not related to any financial problems brought on by coronavirus and was solely due to a contractual issue between the two clubs. A Fifa spokesperson told SunSport: “We can confirm that we have received a claim from the German club Eintracht Frankfurt against the English club West Ham United.Advertisement Loading… “The matter is currently still being investigated and consequently we cannot provide any further comments.” Fifa rules state: “Clubs are required to comply with their financial obligations towards players and other clubs as per the terms stipulated in the contracts signed with their professional players and in the transfer agreements.” Although Fifa often considers transfer embargoes for severe matters of this nature, the small amount and the fact West Ham are not repeating offenders suggest such a punishment is a long way off. read also:Lampard: West Ham loss shows why we aren’t contenders The Hammers splashed out a club-record £45million on Haller, 26, to bring him in last summer. But after a promising start with three goals from his first three games, the Frenchman’s form has gone the same way as the club’s with the towering striker managing just four goals in 26 appearances since.

Ferguson: Trophies key to success

first_img Famously Ferguson also had a testing start to his reign and he was not following an icon who had just enjoyed a 27-year trophy-laden spell. ”The thing about coming to a club like United is you can never get away from the expectation and I learned about that quickly,” said Ferguson at a question and answer session for a 1,700-strong audience at The Lowry Theatre in Manchester to coincide with the publication of his autobiography. ”I spent a lot of stupid time looking at history, getting out early results from the 10 previous seasons and it was doing me no good, I was getting nowhere with that. ”I learned you had to look at your own situation. ”Winning a trophy at any time is important at this club.” Ferguson was not asked any questions by BBC Sport presenter Dan Walker about the Glazer family’s ownership of United, Roy Keane, Wayne Rooney or what he thought about the reaction over the last week to the publication of his memoirs. He did offer a view on what he thought made for a successful manager. ”I was there 27 years and that gave me time to look ahead,” said the Scot, who revealed he had been contacted by Cardiff boss Malky Mackay in the last fortnight – around the time when there was huge speculation about his future after internal wranglings at the Welsh club. ”When clubs sack their manger they have no evidence it works. When a manager is consistent in his position the club does better and I strongly believe in that. ”David Moyes had 10 years at Everton and when he joined he inherited a ‘sell, sell, sell’ (policy) but he built the club up.” Ferguson, who made disparaging remarks about Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard in the book saying he was not a ”top, top player”, could not resist another little dig at the Merseysiders. However, he accepted it was because of the Anfield side’s historic success that the rivalry between the two North West clubs was so fierce. ”Coming to United Liverpool were the top dogs, there were fantastic teams in the ’70s and ’80s winning their four European Cups – or whatever it was,” he said. ”Our younger fans who have grown up don’t remember when Liverpool were successful. ”They don’t remember when we were fighting to get on top of Liverpool. ”The two clubs are the two most successful in Britain, that is obvious, so the rivalry is always going to be there.” Ferguson also had a swipe at the FA, which is currently beginning the long process of how to overhaul the game from grassroots level and improve coaching. ”What we are seeing at the moment which is really wrong is the FA are fast-tracking players (into coaching) because they are internationals,” he said. ”It is ridiculous. You don’t do them any favours whatsoever because this is a difficult industry. ”They should be making sure the coaching qualifications are intense and difficult because by doing that you know you are giving them proper preparation.” Press Association Moyes – along with former assistant manager Mike Phelan, Sir Bobby Charlton and Denis Law – was a guest in the audience to hear his fellow Scot spend an hour recounting tales and experiences from his career. Life after Ferguson at Old Trafford has not got off to the flying start Moyes would have hoped for as some stuttering performances in the Barclays Premier League have left them eighth in the table, eight points behind leaders Arsenal. Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson’s recollection of his tricky start to his Old Trafford career may have inadvertently offered some advice to successor David Moyes.last_img read more

The Pittsburgh Penguins have changed all that by winning 16 of their last 21 games to get within four points of the Caps with one game in hand. The American three-time overall champion decided to skip the races in the 2014 Olympic resort after winning the previous super-G and a downhill in Bulgaria a week ago.The win left the Italian 270 points short of Shiffrin’s leading tally. — Terence Davis scored a career-high 31 points and the Raptors picked up their team-record 11th consecutive victory by ripping the Bulls, 129-102.

The Chiefs quarterback put his team ahead for the first time since the second quarter by hitting Damien Williams for a five-yard TD. Williams later capped his 104-yard rushing performance by scampering 38 yards to give Kansas City breathing room.Mahomes shook off a slow start to finish 26 of 42 for 286 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. Tyreek Hill had 105 receiving yards on nine catches, and Sammy Watkins had five receptions for 98 yards.The 49ers took advantage of Mahomes’ first interception by turning it into a one-yard scoring run by Raheem Mostert late in the third quarter.
