Sibling doctors pass away from COVID-19 shortly after their father succumbs to virus

first_imgTwo sibling doctors have recently died of COVID-19 in Semarang, Central Java, shortly after their father’s life was taken by the same disease.Head of the Semarang Indonesian Medical Association (IDI), Elang Sumabar said the sister, Elianna Widiastuti, passed away on June 28.”Dr. Elianna worked at the Halmahera community health center [Puskesmas] in Semarang. She passed away on June 28, after being admitted to Roemani Hospital,” Elang said on Wednesday as reported by explained that Elianna had fallen ill after attending her father’s funeral on Sunday morning.”She was taken to the hospital in the afternoon where she passed away,” he said.After some contact tracing, it was found that Elianna’s brother, Sang Aji Widi Aneswara, had also contracted the disease.”Dr. Sang Aji’s children and wife also tested positive for COVID-19. He was admitted to KRMT Wongsonegoro Regional Hospital on July 1, and passed away on July 6,” Elang said. Sang Aji worked at the Karanganyar Puskesmas and had once volunteered to treat COVID-19 patients.”He was still young, only 31 years old. He once volunteered to treat COVID-19 patients at the Semarang mayor’s official residence,” Elang explained.Both siblings were laid to rest at Madinah Memorial Park Cemetery in Ungaran, with their burials following COVID-19 procedures.Elang said that besides the two siblings, two other doctors from the greater Semarang area had also passed away recently due to COVID-19.”Dr. Ane Rovian from Welahan Puskesmas, Jepara, Central Java, passed away on June 25 after being treated at Telogorejo Hospital in Semarang,” he said.Another doctor from Purwodadi, Central Java, Sovian Endin, also passed away from COVID-19 in June.”Just this afternoon, I heard news that a doctor from Purwodadi passed away at Moewardi Hospital in Solo. So, in total four doctors from around Semarang have passed away recently [because of COVID-19],” Elang said.He expressed hope that no other doctors would lose their lives from treating COVID-19 patients. He urged the government to protect medical workers by periodically testing them for COVID-19.”The government should protect both those who directly treat COVID-19 patients and those who work at health facilities such as Puskesmas or clinics, by periodically testing them [for COVID-19],” he said, adding that the public should also remain disciplined in following health protocols. As of Tuesday, Central Java had recorded more than 5,000 COVID-19 cases with 225 casualties.

China considering resumption of Super league in May

first_img Loading… The China is considering resumption of the super league after the country successfully battled the coronavirus with no new cases recorded. The Chinese Super League has been in the cooler like other leagues across the globe due to the ravaging effect of the coronavirus. Incidentally the dreaded virus emanated from Chinese City of Wuhan December last year and has held the world in bondage since then with many people dead and several dozens in isolation. Rafa Benitez and his Dalian Yifang team have been flown out of Spain and back to China, a stark indication of the changing geographical focus of the coronavirus epidemic. The Chinese Super League is eyeing resumption late May. Benitez and his squad, who returned to Dalian on Thursday, will have to complete 14 days of quarantine after the charter flight commissioned by the club got them out of Spain, now one of the worst affected countries and which is currently in lockdown. Benitez is said to be well and happy to be back. The Dalian Yifang squad kept themselves entertained in Spain with a table tennis tournamentAdvertisement Dalian will continue preparations for the new season as the club have built them a bespoke isolation unit at their new training ground. Dalian were in pre-season training in Marbella in January when the coronavirus outbreak was first reported in China. The team were ordered to stay in Spain for safety reasons and moved to Alicante and then Benidorm, where they have attempted to stay fit and prepare for a season that should have started in late January. But given the worsening situation in Spain, it became imperative to get them out and back to China, which is now safer.

West Ham win eases pressure on Allardyce

first_imgTen-man West Ham eased the pressure on manager Sam Allardyce as they climbed out of the relegation zone with a 2-0 win at Cardiff. Fraizer Campbell, Craig Noone and Mark Hudson failed to convert the best chances for the hosts, who replace West Ham in the bottom three, and this will have outlined to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the task he will face in keeping the Bluebirds up. Allardyce’s position has been under severe scrutiny in the wake of heavy cup defeats against Nottingham Forest and Manchester City, and the Hammers lying 19th the table. The mood at Cardiff may have been lifted by Solskjaer’s arrival but with the Bluebirds a point and a place above the drop zone it was little surprise there was such a nervy start. Cardiff survived an early scare when West Ham hit the post inside three minutes. Stewart Downing’s cross missed everyone and cannoned out of the far post, where Tomkins’ follow-up was smothered by David Marshall. Tomkins’ return from injury had provided a timely boost for Allardyce who is without the likes of Winston Reid and James Collins. But he lost another defender in the eighth minute when Guy Demel went down. Campbell had just failed to connect with Peter Odemwingie’s cross and when the ball was quickly put back into the box the striker collided with Demel and Roger Johnson. Johnson’s elbow appeared to strike Demel and the Ivorian required lengthy treatment before being stretchered off with a suspected broken elbow and facial injuries. The long disruption ensured there was little flow on the resumption until George McCartney, on for Demel, blocked superbly from Craig Noone. Press Association Cardiff looked the more likely to score and they thought they had in the 32nd minute. Kim Bo-kyung’s shot deflected off Johnson, struck the bar and appeared to cross the line as it came down. No goal was given and Campbell gave away a foul as he bundled Adrian and the ball over the line. But replays showed the Goal Decision System had been correct, with the ball landing on the line. Noone was again denied, this time by Adrian, before the visitors opened the scoring. Matt Taylor picked out Jarvis, and the winger’s weighted pass gave Cole an easy tap in. That prompted Solskjaer to hand fit-again Craig Bellamy a first appearance since November 9 in place of Odemwingie. It nearly paid immediate dividends as the veteran’s free-kick found an unmarked Hudson, who headed over. McCartney survived penalty shouts for handball and what looked like a clear push on Campbell, before the striker worked Adrian from Bellamy’s pull-back. It was all Cardiff and West Ham were pegged further back when Tomkins saw red as he picked up a second booking for a foul on Campbell after earlier being cautioned needlessly for dissent. But West Ham survived and Noble finished a sweeping break from Carroll’s pass to secure the spoils. Carlton Cole was on hand to convert from close range from Matt Jarvis’ excellent pass, before James Tomkins was sent off in the second half. But Mark Noble sealed the win in stoppage time, and with Andy Carroll making a first appearance of the season as a substitute this was a good day for Allardyce with co-owners David Gold and David Sullivan in attendance. last_img read more

Indian Premier League On India tour, Michael Phelps meets Ishant Sharma and Shreyas Iyer

first_imgPhelps meets Ishant Sharma and Shreyas Iyer. Michael Phelps loves cricket but cannot be his next sport. Phelps is currently on India tour.  highlights New Delhi: Learning to hold the bat was fun and so was watching balls flying for sixes but American swimming great Michael Phelps says despite the enjoyable brush with cricket on his maiden India trip, he doesn’t quite foresee himself taking to the sport. One of the greatest Olympians of all time, Phelps had a fun cricket session with IPL team Delhi Capitals here on Wednesday.”It was nice to see how excited the crowd was and to see how the players shift when there is a change of ends or a dismissal. I loved watching the sixes yesterday,” the 33-year-old was quoted as saying in a media release. Speaking on meeting the cricketers and watching Delhi Capitals match against Chennai Super Kings on Tuesday night, the American legend said, “I don’t think cricket is my next sport but I loved seeing the match with the Delhi Capitals yesterday. “Phelps, who ended his career with a record-breaking 28 Olympic medals — 23 of them gold, interacted with Delhi Capitals’ captain Shreyas Iyer, wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant, South African all-rounder Chris Morris and pace bowler Ishant Sharma.”Today has been about getting a couple of tips from the boys, starting with how to hold a bat. So I’m sure I will be better prepared to play cricket when I visit India next,” he quipped. Phelps won a staggering eight gold medals in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, winning all the events he participated in. In the 2012 London Games, the ace swimmer went on to win four gold and two silver medals.Pant shared some light moments with Phelps. Asked how he would convince Phelps to play cricket, Pant said, “I would just tell him that he is most welcome to stay at my place for as long as he wants, where I can teach him how to play the sport.” To which Phelps replied, “That sounds good to me, and it means that I am coach-able which makes me happy.” Morris, who joined the Delhi squad late on Monday evening, spoke about how it felt to meet the legendary swimmer.”Like I said the man is an absolute legend. He is the all-time leading gold medal winner at the Olympics. It is quite an honour for us to interact with him and I am very excited to see him today.” Michael Phelps is a name that is synonymous with Olympics, and there are two Olympians who have become household names, and it is Phelps and Usain Bolt so I’m really buzzing,” he said.Ishant said meeting Phelps was inspiring.”It was a great opportunity for all of us to have met him. You know he’s a world champion and we shared a few moments with him as well. He has been a huge motivation to athletes around the world over the years, and it was the same for all of us at the Delhi Capitals today,” he said.

Don’t count on the NFL in LA

first_imgIt seems that every year another “NFL to Los Angeles” headline pops up. The Los Angeles Rams and Raiders fans appear in mass numbers, the NFL dismisses the notion, and a few weeks later it’s as if the rumor never happened.This NFL offseason has produced not one, not two, but three possible teams heading to L.A. as soon as the 2016 season. Rams owner Stan Kroenke has publicly said he will be moving his team to Inglewood to play in an 80,000 seat stadium built on the former site of the Hollywood Park racetrack.The Raiders and Chargers have proposed a joint stadium located in Carson that would host both teams and contain a large number of restaurants and other venues surrounding the stadium, similar to L.A. Live next to the Staples Center.All this happened while a proposal for a stadium located next to the Staples Center with funding, a naming sponsorship and city backing sat waiting for a team to commit.That plan now joins the approximately one million, just  maybe a slight exaggeration, other stadium/team proposals that L.A. has seen since the Rams and Raiders bolted in 1994.Now, these stadium proposals sound nice and all, but I’m not buying into it yet. Not until shovel hits dirt will I believe that America’s biggest sport will return to the City of Angels.In my 21 years of life, I’ve been let down too many times from these fake rumors.Let’s just go over a brief history of the past 20 years since the NFL left before I explain why you shouldn’t get too excited over these new stadium proposals.In just over 20 years, Los Angeles has been linked to almost half of the teams in the NFL. In 1997, the Seahawks were supposed to move before getting a new stadium.In 1999, the expansion team was supposed to be in L.A. before Houston swooped in and convinced the NFL otherwise. In 2002, the Colts were supposed to move from Indianapolis before getting a new stadium.In the late 2000s, the 49ers, Vikings and Bills were all linked to Los Angeles before getting new stadiums from their respective cities.The reason I’m pointing this history out is because owners have used Los Angeles as a bargaining tool against cities that threaten to provide no funding for a new stadium. Owners have been taking advantage of L.A.’s vacancy as a way to leverage themselves.Imagine you have two friends: one who will buy you lunch, and another who won’t. You’d be much more likely to go to lunch with the friend who will buy you a nice sandwich than with the one who is going to leave you with the bill.Or, simply put, why would a small market team with an ancient stadium stay in a place like Minneapolis or Buffalo when sunny, beautiful California is awaiting?This is the main reason I am not willing to buy into these rumors that L.A. will have three teams playing here in fewer than two years.All these teams — the Rams, Raiders and Chargers -— play in some of the oldest stadiums in the NFL and have long been trying to get public financing for new stadiums.Adding to the controversy is the fact that the NFL has not backed either plan. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell spoke Wednesday at the annual NFL meeting, and his words were not comforting to L.A. fans.“First, let me just say we’re focused on doing this right,” Goodell said. “If we go back to the Los Angeles market, we want to succeed for the long term, and we have a lot to do to get to that place. So we’re not focused on ‘16.”The fact that the NFL is not in the nation’s second largest market is inconceivable. L.A. teams such as the Lakers and Trojans are international brands that stretch all across the globe. With the NFL’s recent obsession with becoming a global game, one would figure L.A. would be the first step.The fact that the NFL has yet to back any of these plans has me feeling iffy on the whole subject.Furthermore, any team that does relocate to L.A. would have to play in a temporary stadium, such as the Rose Bowl or the Coliseum.The Rose Bowl is the most viable and realistic option, but if two teams were to move here like many expect, that would mean the stadium would host three teams.The venue is already limited to a certain number of days it can host events, meaning one team would have to play in the not-fully-suitable Coliseum.The NFL might very well return to Los Angeles in the near future, and it absolutely should.For now, however, I’m not buying into any rumors until I see a stadium being built, whether it be in Inglewood, Carson or some other city in Los Angeles.Nick Barbarino is a junior majoring in business administration.

Corcoran: Average spring game yields average expectations

first_imgTo think that a week ago the Wisconsin men’s basketball team had just completed a memorable run in the NCAA tournament seems so foreign after watching the Wisconsin spring football game Saturday afternoon at Camp Randall. It’s not even that basketball seems foreign. It’s watching a top tier program.Spring games aren’t exactly the greatest thing since sliced bread, but the drab 2014 installment of the yearly yawner seemed even more forgettable than years past. If you need any indication of how uneventful this year’s spring game was look no further than the final score: 6-0. No, Wisconsin didn’t recently sanction a varsity baseball program again that played at Camp Randall Saturday; it was the football team.A lot of that final score has to do with a key contingent of players sitting out in the second half of the game — the second half was the scored portion of the spring game with two 15-minute quarters — and it’s no secret that a spring game is hardly a direct representation of the season to come in the fall, but the Badgers seem like they are going to be awfully average come next season.Compared to other spring games around the country there just wasn’t a whole lot happening at Wisconsin’s spring affair. Florida State saw Jameis Winston throw for almost 400 yards in the Seminoles’ conclusion of the spring season, while Notre Dame welcomed back Everett Golson, who sat out all of last year due to academic suspension, and greeted freshman dual threat quarterback Malik Zaire who tossed for 292 yards in his debut.Meanwhile in the Big Ten, Penn State, Ohio State and Nebraska all drew more than 60,000 fans for their spring games led by PSU, which had 72,000 spectators in Happy Valley. All three of those games might not have featured a wealth of projected starters either, but they still managed to generate a fair amount of buzz unlike the Wisconsin game, which had a rather paltry 8,204 fans in attendance.But there’s a good reason as to why Camp Randall wasn’t anywhere close to capacity. What fan in their right mind would pay $5 to watch a lackluster kicking game be the difference maker, while a Melvin Gordon-less offense relied on the legs of Austin Ramesh, a name which most Badger fans had not heard before Saturday.Thankfully, Gordon is among the healthy Badgers at this point in time, and Wisconsin is going to need him come next fall because, outside of the rushing attack, it doesn’t really have much else going for it. In the time that Gordon did see in the unscored plays in the first half of the spring game, he looked every bit the dominating runner that he was last season and broke away on 40-yard run in one of his few appearances in the backfield.However, outside of that and maybe a 30-yard touchdown throw by Tanner McEvoy, there wasn’t much cause for excitement, which could potentially be a theme in the coming months. Wisconsin has had quite a run of success due to its running game dating back to when Barry Alvarez took over as head coach in 1990. Much like years past, all of the Badgers hopes for the coming season looked to be pinned squarely on the shoulders of Gordon and Corey Clement, at least as far as the offense is concerned.With such a prolific rushing attack Wisconsin hasn’t really needed a fantastic quarterback, and besides Russell Wilson, hasn’t really had one. This year looks like it won’t be any different.Last year’s starter Joel Stave sat out Saturday because of his lingering shoulder injury from the Capital One Bowl. Fans and media got the first look at Tanner McEvoy at quarterback in a game situation since he arrived on campus last summer after transferring. McEvoy did have the nice touchdown throw to Doe in the unscored portion and he did show the ability to scramble and throw on the run, which sets up an interesting battle for the starting spot when fall camp opens. But although McEvoy looks like he might have what it takes to earn the starting spot, his 4-for-10 throwing performance doesn’t really speak too much about superstar potential. And in a nutshell, the quarterback position is a microcosm of what the Badgers are looking at heading into next fall. Wisconsin has some good players, but outside of the tailback role, Wisconsin is just plain mediocre — let’s not even get started on the kicking game. That in and of itself warrants a whole column.Perhaps the recruits yet to make their way to Madison can make a lasting impression in their first year. Either way Wisconsin needs players to step to the forefront and in a big way after losing 12 starters from a season ago. If not, Wisconsin may find that the shadow cast by other Big Ten schools and their spring games may extend into the regular season.last_img read more
