Ecuador’s Moreno calls for probe into handling of corpses in coronavirus outbreak

first_imgThe tweet included a copy of a formal complaint over alleged irregularities filed by Jorge Wated, the state official tasked with handling corpses during the crisis.The speed of the outbreak in Guayaquil left corpses uncollected in homes and even in some cases in the streets, forcing authorities to store bodies in refrigerated containers and later to open a cemetery to begin burying the dead, residents said.As of Wednesday Ecuador had about 4,450 cases of the disease, with 242 confirmed deaths and another 240 who are suspected to have died from the virus.Of those, 3,047 cases and 144 deaths were in the province of Guayas, where Guayaquil is located.Health Minister Juan Carlos Zevallos said on Tuesday he had sacked an official who requested money in exchange for handing over the remains of a victim in a Guayaquil public hospital.”Shameful, outrageous and intolerable. I have ordered the removal of this individual and the start of relevant legal actions so that this case does not go unpunished,” he said.Topics : Ecuadorean President Lenin Moreno on Wednesday called for an investigation into how local authorities handled the bodies of coronavirus victims in Guayaquil, the epicenter of the country’s outbreak that has overwhelmed health and sanitary authorities.Family members have complained via social media that public hospitals have failed to quickly locate the bodies of their loved ones and in some cases misidentified the remains.”We will not allow anyone to be buried without being identified. They deserve a goodbye with dignity!” Moreno wrote via Twitter.last_img read more

UK politicians launch inquiry into ‘defined ambition’ pension schemes

first_imgBaroness Ros AltmannCDC pension schemes are not allowed in the UK, although they are common in the Netherlands and Denmark. In Germany they will become possible as of January , under certain conditions. Their introduction in the UK was once planned, however.As part of then pensions minister Sir Steve Webb’s aim for greater risk-sharing in pensions, in 2014 it was announced that the government intended to legislate to allow CDC plans. They were subsequently recognised as a distinct pension category in legislation created by the Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition government, but plans for regulations to bring them into effect were shelved following the 2015 general election.Sir Steve’s successor as pensions minister, Baroness Ros Altmann, said this was because the government did not want to distract from other major reforms such as auto-enrolment and pension freedoms. Industry representatives had strong views about CDC schemes – the debate a few years ago came close polarising the industry. The committee has asked for written submissions by 8 January. It has posed questions under three headings: benefits to savers and the wider economy, converting defined benefit schemes to CDC, and how CDCs would be regulated.The politicians’ questions include:Would CDC deliver tangible benefits to savers compared with other models?How would a continental-style collective approach work alongside individual freedom and choice?Could seriously underfunded DB pension schemes be resolved by changing their pension contract to CDC, along Dutch lines?Is there appetite among employers and the UK pension industry to deliver CDC?Would CDC funds have a clearer view towards investing for the long term? The WPC is also carrying out an inquiry into pension freedoms, launched in September.The lawmakers also said that CDC had been identified as a potential source of longer term investment in growing start-up companies. Unlocking such investment was one of the policies presented by chancellor Philip Hammond in his Budget statement this week.Arguments made against CDC schemes, according to the committee, were that they could further fragment the pension landscape, suffer from lack of demand, or run counter to the trend towards greater individual freedom and choice in pensions. Sir Steve Webbcenter_img A cross-party group of UK politicians has launched an inquiry into the merits or otherwise of collective defined contribution (CDC), also referred to as deferred ambition plans.The Work and Pensions Committee (WPC) of the parliament’s lower house today announced it was seeking views on CDC schemes as “the type of retirement saving plan with the potential to address some of the concerns that policymakers and the public have about the current pension ‘offer’”.Frank Field, Labour Party MP and chair of the committee, said: “What the select committee is aiming for is to retain some of the best features of company schemes in a different age when employers are no longer willing or able to sustain the burden of final salary promises to employees, who could instead club together and pool the risk themselves.”Setting out its inquiry, the committee highlighted arguments in favour and against the introduction of CDC plans. These include that they would “take the central decision of pension freedoms out of retirement planning, and also much of the risk”.last_img read more

Utah man may have contracted Zika from dying father’s tears

first_imgHealthInternationalLifestylePrint Utah man may have contracted Zika from dying father’s tears by: Associated Free Press – September 29, 2016 67 Views   no discussions SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Utah man who mysteriously contracted Zika from his infected father may have got it by touching his dad’s tears or sweat with his bare hands, according to new research that found the unusual transmission method was likely caused by his dying father having 100,000 times the normal level of the virus.The research done by University of Utah doctors and published Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine, doesn’t give definite answers to why the father’s levels were so high or why the son contracted the virus in a way not documented anywhere else. But it does offer new details about the events the led to a case that has puzzled researchers.The father, 73, had been diagnosed with prostate cancer eight months before his June death, the report says. He was receiving radiation therapy and anti-androgen therapy, which may have made it easier for the virus to replicate, said Dr. Sankar Swaminathan, chief of the infectious diseases division at University of Utah Health Care. But Swaminathan said the cancer and treatment doesn’t totally explain why the man had such extremely high levels.He became ill after returning from a three-week trip to the southwest coast of Mexico, his native country that he left in 2003 to move to the United States, the paper says. The report still doesn’t provide the man’s name or the exact spot in Mexico he visited.In Mexico, he ate ceviche and soft boiled turtle eggs and went fishing in the ocean, but those food choices and activities played no role in coming down with the virus, Swaminathan said. He and other family members were bitten by mosquitoes, leading him and several others to come down with Zika.His son, a healthy 38-year-old, became sick five days after visiting his father in the hospital and was diagnosed with Zika. He recovered and later told doctors that he had helped nurses care for his father, including wiping his eyes without gloves.None of the nurses or doctors who treated his father became sick, or did other family members. Health officials and researchers tested mosquitoes in the Salt Lake City area and didn’t find any Zika-infected bugs.The virus causes only a mild illness in most people. But during recent outbreaks in Latin America, scientists discovered that infection during pregnancy has led to severe brain-related birth defects.Researchers in this new report concur with a previous assessment by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that the son contracted the virus through a new method other than the two main sources: mosquito bites and sexual activity with an infected person.But Swaminathan said the findings don’t mean people visiting Zika-infested areas and countries need to wear gloves all of the time. They believe the rare transmission happened primarily because the father’s extremely high levels of the virus.“There’s no risk of shaking hands with a person who has a typical Zika infection,” said Swaminathan, who treated the two.last_img read more

James smiled when asked about Trump’s comments that he did more for the black community than any president except maybe Abraham Lincoln, who freed slaves in the 19th Century.

I appreciate that,” James said. Trump told Fox News he turns away when he sees players kneel during the anthem, although players have said the move is to protest police brutality and social injustice, and is not an insult to the flag, military or nation. “I think it’s disgraceful,” Trump said. “We work with (the NBA). We work very hard trying to get them open. I was pushing them to get open. And then I see everyone kneeling during the anthem. It’s not acceptable to me. “When I see them kneeling, I just turn off the game. I have no interest in the game. When I see people kneeling during the playing and disrespecting our flag and disrespecting our national anthem, what I do, personally, is turn off the game.” Trump need not hurry to turn on the NBA again, James said. “I really don’t think the basketball community are sad about losing his viewership, him viewing the game,” James said. – ‘We could care less’ – “The game will go on without his eyes on it. I can sit here and speak for all of us who love the game of basketball and we could care less.” James noted global support and respect for the NBA.center_img Loading… “Our game is in a beautiful position and we’ve got fans all over the world,” James said. “Our fans love and respect what we try to bring to the game, what’s right and what’s wrong.” Trump took aim at NBA ratings and tossed in a dig at those who have kneeled during anthems in Major League Baseball, although both have enjoyed above-average viewership since making their returns in recent weeks after long COVID-19 breaks. “The ratings for the basketball are way down, if you know. And I hear some others are way down, including baseball. Because all of the sudden, now baseball’s is in the act,” Trump said. “We have to stand up for our flag. We have to stand up for our country. We have to stand up for our anthem. And a lot of people agree with me. “Hey, if I’m wrong, I’m going to lose an election. OK. And that’s OK with me. But I will always stand for our country and for our flag.” James was looking forward to the US Presidential voting on November 3 also. “November is right around the corner and it’s a big moment for us as Americans,” James said. “We talk about we want better, we want change, and we will have (that opportunity).” Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers spoke about Trump earlier, the election on his mind as he wore a cap that had “Vote” on the front.last_img read more

Everton swat aside sorry Arsenal

first_img Their Champions League challenge got all the more real after strikes from Steven Naismith, Romelu Lukaku and a Mikel Arteta own goal put them just a point behind the Londoners with a match in hand. The way they played their visitors off the park was an example of manager Roberto Martinez’s passing game in full effect and was reminiscent of the lessons Wenger’s side used to hand out to opponents. But Arsenal’s weak spot has always been their soft underbelly and it was brilliantly exploited at Goodison Park as Everton were tenacious, incisive and just plainly better in every department. Goalkeeper Tim Howard is Mr Reliable, ageless centre-back Sylvain Distin continues to churn out classy performances, Gareth Barry bestrides central midfield with a simplicity and calmness which allows young tyro Ross Barkley to terrorise further forward while Lukaku provides a cutting edge up front. That two of those players are only on loan is a debate for another day. After this performance it is difficult not to talk up Everton’s chances of qualifying for the Champions League for only the second time in their history. It was difficult to argue with Martinez’s tactics, which saw him switch to 4-3-3 with Lukaku unusually stationed on the right wing to target Nacho Monreal, who was replacing injured left-back Kieran Gibbs. However, even the best managers need a stroke of luck. Leon Osman, who had looped Everton’s first shot of the match just past Wojciech Szczesny’s left-hand post, got in a tangle with Bacary Sagna, resulting in a gash that opened up after appearing to catch a boot in the face. It forced Osman’s immediate exit down the tunnel after just nine minutes, but brought Barkley to the fore in a more disciplined role on the left than he has been used to playing under Martinez. However, with Barry providing support behind, the 20-year-old was still able to express himself and was instantly installed as the focal point of Everton’s attacking play. The goal, however, came from Arsenal’s inability – or unwillingness – to engage opponents. Leighton Baines was allowed to carry the ball 30 yards into enemy territory unchallenged and with that amount of time he picked out Lukaku with a low cross. Although the Belgium striker was denied by Szczesny, Naismith – who seems to have become Martinez’s lucky charm – was in the right place at the right time to ram home the rebound. One Barkley through-ball caused panic in Arsenal’s defence but Kevin Mirallas could only shoot weakly while another sent Baines away down the left to create a chance for James McCarthy. Martinez’s ploy to expose Monreal down the other flank saw the Gunners defender give up the chase with Lukaku and call for Szczesny to race out of his area and clear. Barkley continued to torment the visitors and after numerous step-overs hit an angled shot that was kept out by the goalkeeper’s legs, with Mirallas also forcing a save at the same right-hand post. Arsenal were cut open again just after the half-hour when Everton sliced their way through central midfield, with Naismith and Mirallas combining to release Lukaku on the right. Again Monreal, Thomas Vermaelen and Per Mertesacker stood off as he cut inside and the striker took full advantage to smash home left-footed. Lukaku’s celebration with Martinez on the touchline spoke volumes about the way the players have so wholeheartedly embraced the Spaniard’s change in philosophy since replacing David Moyes in the summer. The closest Arsenal came to a first-half reply saw Howard superbly tip over Lukas Podolski’s dipping half-volley, but there was little else to enthuse over. Everton, on the other hand, were rampant and midway through the second half applied the killer blow. Mirallas broke from deep and although Szczesny just got to the ball before Naismith, it rebounded back in front of goal where former Toffees midfielder Arteta, under pressure from Mirallas, turned it into his own net. Substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s shot against the crossbar late on seemed merely like Arsenal raging against the dying of the light. It may be too soon to hail Everton’s 3-0 victory over Arsenal as a changing of the guard, but one thing it does do is put the Gunners’ proud Champions League status in serious doubt. For 16 successive years Arsene Wenger’s side have taken their place alongside Europe’s elite, but this season there is a new kid on the block. And Everton could easily be the new Arsenal in more ways than one. Press Associationlast_img read more

Lough among National defectors

first_imgJoint top-weight Carlingford Lough was among a handful of horses withdrawn from the Crabbie’s Grand National at the latest confirmation stage with a total of 74 contenders standing their ground for the Aintree showpiece. Connections of the John Kiely-trained Irish Hennessy winner were quick to rule out a trip to Liverpool following his unplaced run in the Cheltenham Gold Cup, but fellow top-weight Lord Windermere stands his ground at the head of the field. Jim Culloty’s charge was pulled up in his defence of the Gold Cup but could still join stablemate Spring Heeled in the April 11 contest. Should Lord Windermere win, he would be only the third horse to land both races following Golden Miller and L’Escargot. Many Clouds, another Gold Cup also-ran, remains in the reckoning for Oliver Sherwood while the Paul Nicholls-trained trio of Sam Winner, Unioniste and Newbury winner Rebel Rebellion are all towards the top of the handicap. Ante-post f avourite Shutthefrontdoor – the expected mount of Tony McCoy – and his Jonjo O’Neill stablemate Merry King are firmly in contention, but Willie Mullins’ Prince De Beauchene was a notable absentee along with Tony Martin’s Living Next Door. The Druids Nephew, Cause Of Causes, Al Co, Teaforthree and Monbeg Dude also stand their ground with Alvarado the last to make the 40-strong field as it stands. Rolling Aces, Alderwood, Boston Bob, Shotgun Paddy, Theatrical Star, Roi Du Mee, Katenko, Make A Track, Cedre Bleu and Buddy Bolero were the other withdrawals. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Arsene Wenger expecting a strong Liverpool to face his Arsenal side

first_imgArsene Wenger expects several of Liverpool’s big names to return in time for Arsenal’s Barclays Premier League trip to Anfield on Wednesday. The Reds face an FA Cup third-round replay against League Two Exeter after Jurgen Klopp’s much-changed and inexperienced side was held to a 2-2 draw at St James Park. Klopp insisted he had no option but to play a youthful team as injuries continue to decimate his squad – but Wenger, whose league leaders made five changes for their 3-1 cup win over Sunderland – reckons Liverpool’s teamsheet on Wednesday will be much more familiar. When asked if he expected some of Liverpool’s biggest names to return, Wenger replied: “Yes, don’t worry, Arsene is a very good doctor – they always heal when they play against us! “The team who played on Friday night is not the team who will play against us. They had many injures and I think they didn’t want more injuries before an important week.” Many Premier League clubs made several alterations for their respective FA Cup third-round ties, but Wenger insists you cannot be considered a “big club” if you are not willing to try and win every tournament you enter. “You can not say ‘we are a big club’ and not go for competitions,” he said. “That is for me impossible. I’ve seen here Bayern go for the cup every year, Barcelona or Real Madrid go for the cup every year. Why? Because they are big clubs. You can’t say ‘we move out of a cup competition, a national cup’.” With an ongoing title tilt and a Champions League clash with Barcelona on the horizon, Wenger feels keeping the momentum in one competition can help in the others – even if it leads to tired legs. “It has positive impact and negative impact,” he added. “Once you’re on a roll, you can rotate, if you have no injuries. Everybody is mentally focused to pull in the same direction. “It’s easier to keep everybody on board because you have always the next competition, and everybody thinks I have a chance to play. That is the positive and negative is he fatigue factor, the injuries at the end of the season.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
