first_img A specially equipped isolation ward at Uige province’s 400-bed hospital is empty, even though Marburg cases and deaths are occurring in the area, the WHO reported. “It is apparent that, for the time being, the community does not accept the concept of isolation,” the agency said. “Residents are unwilling to report suspected cases and allow these people to be managed under conditions that reduce the risk of further transmission.” Yesterday the WHO said travelers to Angola should be aware of the Marburg outbreak and avoid close contact with sick people. People who have existing medical conditions and might require hospitalization should consider postponing travel to Angola, and especially to Uige, officials said. To make matters worse, four Red Cross volunteers who had just been trained to educate local residents about the disease were killed by lightning today while on their way to work, the WHO statement said. The agency had announced just yesterday that the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies had decided to send more volunteers to Uige to help fight the epidemic by running educational campaigns. In the past the federation has helped control large outbreaks of Ebola fever, a disease much like Marburg fever. See also: Apr 14 WHO statementhttp://www.who.int/csr/don/2005_04_14a/en/ But Dr. Mike Ryan of the WHO said that even if the drug seems to work in monkeys, it could be months before it could be tried in human patients, according to the story. Travelers leaving Angola should seek medical attention if they experience any illness with fever within 10 days after their departure, the agency said. Further, “WHO recommends that travelers with a clear exposure history be treated as contacts and placed under surveillance for 21 days, during which time their temperature should be monitored daily.” Apr 13 WHO statementhttp://www.who.int/csr/don/2005_04_13/en/ Officials said they were not aware of any Marburg cases in foreign nationals other than those involved in caring for patients in Uige. In other developments, US Army scientists are investigating whether a drug that has shown promise against Ebola fever might work against Marburg, the Associated Press reported yesterday. The report said the drug cured Ebola in a third of a group of monkeys that were treated with it in 2003. Apr 14, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – As the death toll in Angola’s Marburg hemorrhagic fever epidemic reached 215, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported today that Angolans are refusing to report suspected cases and allow patients to be treated in isolation. Because of the resistance to control measures, the agency said, “Family members and other caregivers who refuse to allow patients to be cared for in the isolation facility are being informed of ways to protect themselves from infection and given appropriate supplies. WHO has placed urgent orders for disinfectants, which are currently in short supply in Angola.” In reporting the Red Cross workers’ deaths, the WHO said it “recognizes the importance of this support and deeply regrets the death of these volunteers.” The WHO said the outbreak amounted to 235 cases, including 215 deaths, as of Apr 12, up from 231 cases and 210 deaths the day before. Uige remained the center of the outbreak, with 208 cases and 194 deaths.last_img read more

He said the amount could be more,considering some leaders of the rebel movement have been allegedly pocketing aportion of their earnings. “They (CPP-NPA) have long beendeceiving the people of Negros.

first_imgThe pair missed out on the winner’s trophy by just 2 points. This result is an indication that Oboh’s game is getting rounded as the tour progresses and is one to watch on the 2019 tour.She will now move to George, South Africa for her third tournament, the prestigious Data Dimensions tournament at the George Golf Club and Fancourt Golf Clubs featuring both men and ladies.Nigeria’s top male professional, Oche Odoh is also expected to feature.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Georgina Oboh rebounded from the disappointing outing at Canon Ladies Open, by finishing in the fourth position at the Serengeti Team Championships in Johannesburg, South Africa in her second professional tournament on the Ladies European Tour (LET).The Nigerian sensation achieved the feat with her playing partner, Catherine Lau of South Africa. Oboh missed the cut by two shots at Canon Ladies Open last week.She and Lau blew hot in round one on Tuesday to stay in 14th position with a modified stableford format earning 38 points in a four-ball better ball format which meant the pair were scored based on the lowest score per hole. They played a combined card of 3 under par for the day.On the final day, however, the duo found their form with an early birdie on the first hole and they never took their feet off the pedal, rolling in eight birdies en-route a score of 8 under par and score of 44.

first_imgKieran Gibbs was Arsenal’s hero as he scored to cancel out Harry Kane’s opener and earn a 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur in the North London derby at the Emirates Stadium.Spurs went ahead through Kane — who was let go by Arsenal’s youth academy at eight years old — with the England international breaking a weak offside trap 32 minutes in before slotting past Petr Cech.Mauricio Pochettino’s side wasted a number of second-half chances, and were made to pay as substitute Gibbs volleyed home 76 minutes in after a superb Mesut Ozil cross for a share of the points.Manchester City remained top of the table despite being held to a goalless draw at rock-bottom Aston Villa as Remi Garde began his reign with a positive result.Villa had lost all but one of their 10 league games since beating Bournemouth on the opening day, and last collected a point in a 2-2 draw with Sunderland on Aug. 28.However, they were able to frustrate City, who also saw striker Wilfried Bony suffer an apparent hamstring injury in the first half, despite having to fend off a host of chances. Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne both passed up clear opportunities for the visitors, while Fernando headed against the crossbar in injury time and Fabian Delph sent the follow-up just wide.Jurgen Klopp suffered his first defeat as Liverpool manager as Scott Dann’s late goal gave Crystal Palace a 2-1 win at Anfield.Palace took the lead on 21 minutes when Emre Can failed to deal with a Wilfried Zaha cross, allowing Yannick Bolasie to blast home from 12 yards.Liverpool, who saw Mamadou Sakho injured during the first half, hit back just before the break when Philippe Coutinho side-footed the ball home after Adam Lallana had flicked on a Nathaniel Clyne cross.Dann had the last word, though, heading home at the second attempt from a corner to give Palace all three points. –Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.

first_img Kawhi Leonard’s playmaking is more than a passing fancy for Clippers Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Luka Doncic injured, Kawhi Leonard dominant; Social Media reacts after Clippers 130-122 victory over Mavs All appears to be forgiven.Dallas reportedly had a strong interest in signing Lakers restricted free agent forward Julius Randle, but that would appear to be dead at this point. Randle was given a $5.6-million qualifying offer by the Lakers earlier this week, which made him a restricted free agent. Randle could still draw interested from the likes of Brooklyn or Indiana.Meanwhile, the Clippers will move on from the only center they have known since 2008.The Clippers management team of Jerry West and Lawrence Frank isn’t expected to pursue top-tier free agents such as LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Paul George of the Oklahoma City Thunder, DeMarcus Cousins of the New Orleans Pelicans or Tyreke Evans of the Memphis Grizzlies.For starters, the Clippers don’t have the necessary cap space. They are expected to be major players in 2019, though, when they’re projected to have up to $50 million in order to sign free agents in a class that’s expected to be deeper and more talented than this one.Related Articles Video highlights, social media reaction after Clippers’ 118-110 victory over Mavericks “You’re definitely active,” Frank said earlier this week, “but you have to have the capacity, so you have to have the salary cap space. Whether it’s via free agency, whether it’s via a trade, you’re constantly looking for ways to improve the roster.”If the Clippers are active starting Saturday, most likely they’ll be in search of forwards. Even after trading Rivers, they have an over-abundance of guards on their roster after drafting guards Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (Kentucky) and Jerome Robinson (Boston College) last week.Before trading Rivers, the son of Coach Doc Rivers, the Clippers had nine guards on the roster.Rivers might not be the last guard to depart the Clippers, though.Avery Bradley, acquired in the deal that sent Griffin to Detroit, will be an unrestricted free agent and isn’t expected to re-sign. Milos Teodosic exercised his option on next season, but the Clippers could waive the native of Serbia before July 16, when his deal becomes fully guaranteed.Only $2.1 million of Teodosic’s $6.3-million contract for 2018-19 is guaranteed.center_img Morning Wrap: Full coverage from Lakers-Clippers thriller; Angels, Dodgers going in different directions; Whicker pays tribute to legendary Mike Gillespie DeAndre Jordan opted out of the final year of his contract for next season with the Clippers and became an unrestricted free agent, with the Dallas Mavericks his most likely destination, according to multiple reports Friday. He was due to make $24.1 million if he opted in with the Clippers.Instead, Friday likely marked the end of Lob City, the most successful period in the Clippers’ history. Jordan played a franchise-record 750 games over 10 seasons with the Clippers. He set career marks for rebounds (7,988) and blocked shots (1,277). Jordan, a 6-foot-11 center, was the first piece of the Lob City puzzle, joining the Clippers via the 2008 draft, and the last to depart. The Clippers traded Blake Griffin to the Detroit Pistons last winter and Chris Paul to the Houston Rockets last summer.The 29-year-old Jordan averaged 12 points and a career-high 15.2 rebounds in 2017-18.The Clippers tried but failed to send Jordan to the Mavericks in a sign-and-trade deal after they dealt guard Austin Rivers to the Washington Wizards in exchange for center Marcin Gortat on Tuesday. The Mavericks reportedly did not want to surrender draft compensation in a trade to acquire Jordan, and the Clippers were reportedly resistant to taking veteran Wes Matthews back in a deal.Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.Jordan and the Mavericks can begin free-agency discussions on Saturday at 9:01 p.m. PT and are expected to quickly come to an agreement. Jordan, who grew up in the Houston area and played one season at Texas A&M, might end up taking a little less next season than he was going to make in exchange for the security of multiple years. Jordan can’t officially sign a new contract until the moratorium ends next Friday, however.The Mavericks nearly landed Jordan in free agency three years ago, but he re-signed with the Clippers after several teammates, including Paul and Griffin, virtually held him hostage in his Houston-area home until he reneged on a verbal agreement on a four-year, $87-million contract with Dallas.

first_imgSecond-year guard D’Angelo Russell (sore left knee) and third-year guard Jordan Clarkson (left knee contusion) are listed as questionable for Friday’s game against Sacramento.While Russell participated in parts of Thursday’s practice, Clarkson sat out entirely. Rookie forward Brandon Ingram (tendinitis in right knee) is listed as probable but would be on a minutes restriction after having limited participation in Thursday’s practice.Staff shufflingAfter working in the front office for the past 16 years, Lakers assistant general manager Glenn Carraro resigned from his position on Thursday. Although the Lakers noted Carraro wants to “pursue other opportunities,” his resignation coincides with the organization making front office changes earlier this season.Carraro had worked as an assistant GM for the past five years under longtime Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak, who was fired on Feb. 21. The Lakers did not indicate who would replace Carraro. …Lakers player development coach Theo Robertson will become an assistant coach with the University of California men’s basketball team after the 2016-17 season ends next week. Robertson had also coached the last game of the Lakers’ 2016 summer league team in Las Vegas. Instead of unwinding on an overnight flight, Lakers guard David Nwaba spent his Wednesday night still on the clock.Following the Lakers’ victory in San Antonio on Wednesday, Nwaba and D-Fenders general manager Nick Mazzella made the 3½-hour drive to Hildalgo, Texas for Game 1 of the D-Fenders’ playoff series against Rio Grande Valley on Thursday.“I’m excited to get an opportunity to get a ring,” Nwaba said after playing for the Lakers’ Development League affiliate for most of the 2016-17 season. “I feel like they can use me during the playoffs and help them win a championship. It’s nice to hear that they miss me on the team.”It does not appear Nwaba will rest anytime soon. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersHe will be in Los Angeles on Friday for the Lakers’ game against Sacramento and then he’ll play with the D-Fenders for Game 2 on Saturday. After playing with the Lakers against Minnesota on Sunday, Nwaba needs to be available to return to Hidalgo for a possible Game 3. If that scenario happens, Nwaba could play as many as eight games on consecutive days. That’s because the Lakers also play against New Orleans on Tuesday at Staples Center and then on Wednesday night at Golden State.“I’m a young guy,” the 24-year-old Nwaba said. “I don’t think it will faze me.”Nwaba, an undrafted guard who starred at University High of Los Angeles and Cal Poly (San Luis Obispo), has averaged 5.6 points on 56.5 percent shooting and 3.2 rebounds in 19.1 minutes through 18 appearances with the Lakers. He originally signed a pair of 10-day contracts with the team in February, before being picked up for the rest of the regular season. Lakers coach Luke Walton has often praised Nwaba’s defensive intensity, a staple he hopes eventually influences his teammates.“He’s blowing plays up on defense,” Walton said. “Guys on our team really start to enjoy watching him do it. They enjoy playing on his unit. I think he’s done a fine job since he’s been here.”Injury updatecenter_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
