Previously, Japanese public broadcaster NHK reported that the Tokyo metropolitan government announced on Saturday that the man, a Tokyo resident in his 60s, had been infected with the novel coronavirus.Read also: Japanese man tests positive for COVID-19 after Indonesia visit: ReportHe had reportedly visited Indonesia from Feb. 15 and was hospitalized upon his return to Japan on Feb. 19 with severe difficulty breathing, and is said to be in a “serious condition”. The NHK did not specify the man’s destination in Indonesia.Foreign Ministry acting spokesperson Teuku “Faiz” Faizasyah said there had been no official communication from the Japanese authorities about the man. Indonesian authorities have yet to receive additional details about the Japanese man who reportedly tested positive for the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) shortly after visiting Indonesia, ministry officials said.The Health Ministry’s Disease Control and Environmental Health Directorate General secretary Achmad Yurianto said that although the ministry had contacted the Indonesian Embassy (KBRI) in Tokyo about the man, they were still unable to verify his identity.“We don’t know his name or which part of Indonesia [he visited]. So what can we investigate?” Yurianto told The Jakarta Post on Sunday. “That’s the problem, until now there has been no information yet from Japan,” Yurianto said.Bayu Krisnamurthi, who headed the National Committee for Avian Flu Control and Pandemic Preparedness between 2006 and 2010, said that people infected with the coronavirus outside Indonesia could spread it inside the country through droplets from coughs and sneezes.“The health authorities should quickly clarify this case. It should be assumed that the virus could have been transmitted to someone else before the symptoms appeared,” Bayu told the Post.Meanwhile, Amin Soebandrio, the director of the Eijkman Institute for Molecular Biology said that if the Japanese man showed no symptoms during his stay in Indonesia he could be undetected despite already carrying the virus during the incubation period, which is up to 14 days.“This is not just in Indonesia. [The man would be undetected] in any country if no symptoms were shown before he returned to Japan,” Amin told the Post.Amin also said that the Indonesian government had followed proper procedures according to the World Health Organization (WHO), including requiring health cards and quarantining travelers who recently visited China.“So the problem is not in our ability to detect [the coronavirus] or not, because we have put all the measures in place,” Amin said.There have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Indonesia to date.Topics :
It looks like JR Smith and LeBron James could be together again.It would take a couple of moves to make that happen, but according to Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes, that is what very well could occur. Lakers ‘on the right path’ after Anthony Davis trade, owner Jeanie Buss says Haynes said:”Cleveland, right now, they are trying to trade JR Smith and whichever team trades for JR right now, most likely he will be waived and when he’s waived, it is my belief he will end up with the Lakers.”The big thing with Smith is that he has one season remaining on the four-year, $57 million deal he signed with the Cavaliers in 2016. Related News The Cavaliers are trying hard to trade him, and because he has an expiring contract, he is appealing to several teams who could use the cleared out cap space next offseason.So, the general consensus among pundits is that Smith will be moved and then waived. And if that happens, the Lakers could be a great destination for him as he has played with James before and shares an agent with him, as well, in Rich Paul of Klutch Sports.As of right now, the Lakers don’t have enough cap space to sign a third max player and it is very logical they could go into next season without a third star alongside Anthony Davis and James.If that happens, according to Haynes, the team will likely look to land some complementary pieces. Kyle Korver is someone they could go after, as is Smith. Lakers’ Jeanie Buss ‘surprised’ Magic Johnson resigned … but she doesn’t blame him The reason being is the Lakers shot horribly from 3-point range last year. Los Angeles went 33.3 percent from beyond the arc, which was 29th in the NBA.Adding Korver or Smith would be a good addition who could address that issue for a relatively affordable price.We’ll see exactly what happens when free agency opens up, but this scenario very well could happen. At the same time, if the Lakers do get Davis to waive his trade kicker, they could sign a third max player, so there are several things that could happen over the next couple of weeks.
