Two 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 kompas.com.Elang 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. (nal)Topics :
When the NBA shared its return plan and campus setup for the basketball “bubble” in Orlando, Fla., one minor element became a source of fascination for NBA Twitter: the anonymous tip hotline.The league has a system in place that allows NBA players to report potential rule violations, and apparently it is already working. On Tuesday, The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported that “multiple tips” have already been placed into the hotline ahead of the 2019-20 season restart. Multiple tips have been placed into the NBA’s anonymous hotline to report protocol violations on campus, sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) July 14, 2020Some players have received warnings from violations, sources said, as league ensures social distancing and mask protocols on campus. https://t.co/LSRX6cXWfP— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) July 14, 2020MORE: Kings player banished to quarantine in Orlando for food orderObviously if players fail to follow health and safety protocols, the NBA’s return is unlikely to last long. It makes sense that the league would do everything possible to avoid another suspension of play.However, some players view the tip hotline as more of a “snitch hotline.” Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie, who won’t be joining his teammates in Orlando after testing positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19), went so far as to encourage players inside the “bubble” to hang up their hotel phones.”To all my fellow NBA players, don’t call the snitch hotline,” Dinwiddie told Bleacher Report’s Taylor Rooks.Asked Spencer Dinwiddie if he had a message for guys that are IN the bubble.I’m just gonna leave this here. I was not expecting him to say this. Lol pic.twitter.com/1xfbKVh3RW— Taylor Rooks (@TaylorRooks) July 14, 2020But the league office shouldn’t be concerned. NBA Twitter is confident All-Star guard Chris Paul will report all violations as quickly as possible. Shortly after Charania’s report hit social media, Twitter users identified the Thunder guard as the primary caller.hm … I wonder who it could be … https://t.co/CwSp0cGUnd pic.twitter.com/nRCwycLwsW— #RingerNBA (@ringernba) July 14, 2020“Yep, Buena Vista drive.

No, probably not. However, this is a man who figured out a way to manufacture points at the end of game via an obscure rule about properly wearing a jersey. His search for a competitive advantage never ends.So, yeah, NBA players should be on their best behavior — because you never know when Paul will be watching.
