Trump refuses to halt rallies as coronavirus surges

Posted on by

first_imgUS President Donald Trump signaled Saturday that he has no intention of halting campaign rallies despite surging coronavirus infections, as a case was confirmed for the first time within miles of the White House.The president struck a defiant tone as he spoke to reporters about the outbreak at his Mar a Lago resort in southern Florida, where he was hosting his Brazilian counterpart Jair Bolsonaro.”We will have tremendous rallies and we’re doing very well, and we’ve done a fantastic job with respect to that subject,” Trump responded when asked if his “Keep America Great” campaign events would continue. Trump’s remarks came as the number of cases confirmed across the United States leapt past 400, with 19 deaths confirmed so far, mainly in the west coast state of Washington.Meanwhile health authorities announced the first confirmed case in the nation’s capital — a Washington DC resident in his 50s with no history of international travel and no close contacts with anyone known to be infected.Asked if he was concerned that the virus had spread to within a few miles of the White House, Trump replied: “No, I’m not concerned at all.”The president had already insisted as he visited the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Friday that the risk of having so many people in close proximity “doesn’t bother me at all.” The CDC warns on its coronavirus web page against people congregating in crowds and encourages the elderly, in particular, to stay home as much as possible.  Trump has been holding rallies — which attract many senior citizens — at a rate of more than one a week recently, often as counter-programming to Democratic primary contests or debates. However, his website currently indicates “no events scheduled” for the coming days, without giving a reason. Trump has been heavily criticized for repeatedly contradicting the advice of his administration’s own experts in his public pronouncements about the coronavirus.At a freewheeling news conference at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday, the president claimed falsely that tests for the virus were available for anyone who needed one.  The event was intended to update the public on the epidemic. Instead, the president made headlines by calling the governor of the worst-hit state, Washington, a “snake,” revealing that he preferred to keep sick Americans on a stranded cruise ship to keep the infection numbers down, complained about CNN and revealed that he was surprised to discover that people could die from the flu. More than 100,000 people have been infected globally by the new coronavirus, with more than 3,500 deaths announced so far, mainly at the epicenter in China. Trump’s potential Democratic challengers for the presidency in November, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and former vice president Joe Biden have also continued to hold campaign events attracting large crowds during the crisis.Topics :last_img read more

Report says 7,000 babies stillborn every day worldwide

first_img Share 34 Views   no discussions Around 7,000 stillbirths occur globally every day, with the poorest nations worst affected, a series of papers published in The Lancet suggest.An overwhelming 98% of the 2.6m stillbirths each year strike middle and low-income countries, they say.Better clinical care and monitoring could halve stillbirths in poorer countries by 2020, the paper adds.Save the Children said current opportunities to address the problem were currently being missed.Invisible tollThe UN’s Millennium Development goals set out targets for maternal and child deaths, but the authors of the Lancet reports suggest stillbirths are being neglected, and are taking what they call an “invisible toll” in poorer countries.Sub-Sahara Africa and South Asian countries continue to suffer the most.The report tasks poorer countries with reducing still births by 50% by the end of the decade and sets out measures which can be taken.“Care at birth will give us the biggest return and saves mothers, newborns and children,” Dr Joy Lawn of Save the Children told the BBC.“Another really missed opportunity is treating syphilis during pregnancy and particularly in southern Africa, syphilis still kills babies and we estimate that around 136,000 stillbirths could be averted every year and that’s at relatively low cost – it’s about making your antenatal clinic services work.“Other critical things would be treating hypertension in pregnancy, identifying diabetes in women who are pregnant and managing that better and then identifying babies that aren’t growing well.”Some countries are already showing the way forward, according to the report.Middle-income countries such as Columbia, China, Mexico and Argentina, have reduced their stillbirth rates by 40% to 50% in recent years.BBC News Share Sharing is caring!center_img HealthLifestyle Report says 7,000 babies stillborn every day worldwide by: – April 14, 2011 Share Tweetlast_img read more

Saturday league action preview: Edubiase v Hearts

Posted on by

first_imgEdubiase (10th) last five games: D W L W LHearts (11th) last five games: W L L D DIs the oak tree strengthening its roots after it appeared to be heading for a fall?After spending four days in the relegation zone, they have successfully battled to come out of it.Their shocking but emphatic 4-0 victory over Heart of Lions sought to remind everyone although they may be going through some troubles, they intend to stay.The return of their ‘old guards’ has sparked a fresh start for the Phobians but Abdul Salam’s Edubiase will have their say come Saturday. The Bekwai based side have promised to bring their own board members to the stadium as also serve a counter act to the Phobians. Edubiase would hope to send a simple positive feedback to their fans after continuously sending mixed messages following on and off results. Speaking after the 4-0 win, Foovi Aguidi – who scored twice – spoke about the game plan“If we cannot hold the ball in midfield ,we cannot play the game .Emmanuel Hayford did well,he helped us. Sarbah too helped us. I was supporting Selasie and I can hold the ball and play like I want.The coach gave me a free role and it’s nice. Today we held the ball in midfield very well.”He was further asked what had changed in his play that led to him bringing out this performance. Foovi said: “It is team work”.He added: “I will work hard. I am a striker and I cannot score two goals and say I am a happy striker. We had to win because our position on the table was not good for us. As for the fans, I honestly don’t think I did anything for them. Two goals are not enough. They need more so I want to do more”. Kickoff is 3pm. –Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM. Our hashtag is #JoySportslast_img read more

Croatia beat Russia on penalties to reach semis

Posted on by

first_imgIvan Rakitic scored the decisive spot-kick as Croatia beat hosts Russia 4-3 on penalties to book a World Cup semi-final date with England.After extra time ended with the score level at 2-2, goalkeeper Danijel Subasic was Croatia’s penalty hero, denying Fedor Smolov before Mario Fernandes fired wide.Rakitic stepped up to score the winning kick and earn his country a place in the semi-finals for the first time since 1998.In a dramatic match, Russia had taken the lead through Denis Cheryshev’s exceptional finish, the Villarreal player starting the move before finishing from outside the area after Artem Dzyuba’s pass.Former Leicester City striker Andrej Kramaric equalised after Mario Mandzukic had been afforded too much space to cross before the both teams were forced to settle for extra time for the second successive game at the tournament.Croatia thought they had won it when Domagoj Vida struck from a corner in the 100th minute only for Fernandes to force penalties with a dramatic headed equaliser.
