ILOILO City – Private hospitalshere have agreed to admit persons diagnosed with coronavirus disease 2019(COVID-19), according to Assistant Secretary Gerard Anthony “Jonji” Gonzales ofthe Office the Presidential Assistant for the Visayas (OPAV). Level 3 hospitals are those withhigh-level specialty intervention. Most private hospitals here are. “We have to open up privatehospitals. Because the rule is if you are a Level 3 hospital – and there are alot of Level 3 hospitals in Iloilo – they should be capable to attend to COVIDpatients,” said Gonzales, OPAV’s Special Concerns Officer of Western Visayas. Stressing the practicality if thisset up, he said the medical doctor will just visit the patient in the privateCOVID-dedicated hospital so there is less exposure by the public to the virus. Although the Western VisayasMedical Center (WVMC) in Mandurriao district has been designated asCOVID-dedicated hospital in the region, private hospitals should not turn awayCOVID patients should anyone seek treatment in them, he stressed. The Department of Health (DOH)“can very well issue a show-cause order to Level 3 hospitals that refuse toadmit COVID and non-COVID patients,” he stressed. Over DyRI radio station on April8, Dr. Ludovico Jurao Jr., assistant administrator of Iloilo Doctors’ Hospital,said private hospitals in the city were discussing to identify a dedicatedprivate hospital for COVID-19 patients who prefer to seek treatment other thanat WVMC. “We want to identify the bestarea, the best hospital to contain the infection. At the same time, the purposeis to channel the donations of PPE (personal protective equipment) to thathospital because that is one of our big problems now,” explained Jurao, alsothe spokesperson of the Philippine Society for Microbiology and Infectious Diseasesin Iloilo. Gonzales had a meeting withrepresentatives of private hospitals on April 7. However, he said private hospitalsshould not deny suspected, possible and probable COVID-19 cases. Once theperson tests positive, the patient would be offered the option of beingreferred to a private hospital or WVMC./PNlast_img read more

Tonge, Joseph rock Windward Islands Volcanoes

first_imgROSEAU, Dominica (CMC) – A critical half-century stand between captain Liam Sebastien and tail-ender Delorn Johnson rescued Windward Islands Volcanoes from disaster on the opening day of their fourth round game in the Regional Four-Day Championship yesterday.With their side precariously poised on 48 for seven at Windsor Park, the pair came together in a 78-run, eighth-wicket partnership to ensure the hosts closed the day on 186 for eight.The left-handed Sebastien was unbeaten on 59 – his 13th first class half-century – while Johnson, also a left-hander, was on 46 not out and in sight of his second first class fifty.Volcanoes were rocked by fast bowler Gavin Tonge who claimed four for 24 and West Indies seamer Alzarri Joseph who finished with three for 52, in his first game of the season.It was the 20-year-old Joseph who stunned Volcanoes first up, snatching three of the first four wickets to fall to reduce the hosts to 22 for four in the fifth over.Sunil Ambris resisted briefly in 22 from 56 balls but Tonge ripped through the middle order to leave the innings in tatters.Sebastien then stepped up, striking eight fours off 100 balls in 137 minutes while Johnson was entertaining, belting two fours and four sixes in a 39-ball cameo.The start of play was delayed until 13.40hrs because of a wet outfield caused by overnight rain.VOLCANOES 1st inningsD.

Jamaica Olympic Association backs Nesta Carter appeal

first_imgPRESIDENT of the Jamaica Olympic Association (JOA), Christopher Samuda, is backing Nesta Carter to convince the Court of Arbitration for Sport that he is innocent of any wrongdoing after he tested positive for a banned substance retrospectively.Carter, who was found to have methylhexaneamine in his urine at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China, lost the gold medal he had earned in the 4×100 metres.That result also affected Usain Bolt, Michael Frater, Asafa Powell, and Michael Frater.According to Samuda, the JOA has supported Carter in his bid to clear his name from day one.“I was the one from JOA who called him (Carter) when the news was communicated to us, and from that phone call, we have been supporting him,” he said.“We have had meetings with him, [and] we have had meetings with the management of his club in Jamaica (MVP Track Club) in relation to the issues involving the case, as well as in terms of the strategy that should be employed.“We have been very close to him and giving him the support. He’s one of our national athletes and has acquitted himself very well, and we are obliged to do it as a national organisation, and that is our culture – to support our national athletes whenever anything like this occurs. It was just natural for us to do so.”Samuda also pointed out that if Carter had his case overturned, there may be more instances of persons taking instances of retrospective punishments to the CAS.last_img read more

‘Benna Boys’ tame Golden Jaguars 2-1

first_imgANTIGUA and Barbuda edged Guyana 2-1 at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium last evening, to secure their second win in the inaugural CONCACAF Nations League.It was a crucial three points secured by the Benna Boys, as Golden Jaguars slumped to their second consecutive defeat, following their 4-0 drubbing by the ‘Reggae Boyz’.Coach Marcio Maximo surprised everyone when he left Sheldon Holder out of the line-up, and opted to start with Trayon Bobb, who hasn’t touched a pitch locally and for the national side, since Guyana’s qualification tournament for the Gold Cup earlier this year.Nonetheless, along with Bobb, Maximo started with Akel Clarke in goal, skipper Samuel Cox, Kevin Layne, Matthew Briggs, Kadell Daniel, Elliot Bonds, Neil Danns, Keanu Marsh-Brown, Clive Nobrega, and Emery Welshman.Golden Jaguars seemed shaky in the opening minutes of their first game against Antigua and Barbuda since their November 29, 2010 1-0 defeat, as the Benna Boys pressed forward with relentless attack.Emery WelshmanThe Antiguans looked to threaten on almost every possession, and went on to score two goals in two minutes through Quinton Griffith (15th) and Junior Benjamin (17th), as the home side sat on a 2-0 cushion throughout the first half.However, Golden Jaguars came out hungry in the second stanza and five minutes into play, Danns slipped a ball through to Welshman, and the forward, who plays with Hapoel Haifa FC in the Israeli Premier League, calmly put his effort past Molvin Jones in goal.It was redemption for Welshman, who had a clear-cut chance in the second half to score, but, as they say in Guyana, he ‘bubble’ on the attempt.Sheldon Holder, who scored Guyana’s lone goal in the Nations League so far, came on late in the half, replacing Trayon Bobb, and made an immediate impact on the game.Guyana’s unyielding push for another goal didn’t materialise and Benna Boys held on for the win which puts them on six points and second place in Group C of League B behind Jamaica.The Golden Jaguars will return home tomorrow evening and will host Antigua and Barbuda on Monday at the National Track and Field Centre, in a must-win affair. … Guyana to host Antigua and Barbuda on Mondaylast_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 26, 2016 at 7:11 pm And while the conference’s depth and success has helped all four of these teams to this point, it’s been especially important for Syracuse. The Tournament’s unlikely contender, even if the biggest surprise was that the Orange made it all. A team that came into the year with a mix of moving parts and used a gauntlet of a conference schedule to turn those parts into the only double-digit seed still standing.“There’s no question that our league has prepared us,” SU assistant Mike Hopkins, who coached in its 0-4 start to conference play, said Saturday. “It kind of gave you those bumps and bruises that you get when you learn to ride a bike. But when you learn to ride it’s a great thing and you see these guys playing with a lot of confidence and believing.”That Syracuse has been the biggest benefactor of its run through this year’s ACC — more than the Tar Heels, Cavaliers and Fighting Irish — would probably be contested by most of the players and coaches involved. Hopkins wasn’t willing to say so. UVA head coach Tony Bennett said every team, young or more experienced, needs to be tested hard to be successful. It’d be very surprising if Roy Williams and Mike Brey didn’t say the same.But if you consider the way Syracuse entered this season, it’s reasonable to say that the Orange really needed that push. Two freshmen playing starters’ minutes with a third rounding out the rotation off the bench. Michael Gbinije starting his first season as a full-time point guard. Starting center Dajuan Coleman returning from a 22-month recovery from two knee surgeries. Tyler Roberson becoming SU’s depended-upon rebounder after Rakeem Christmas thrived with that responsibility a year ago.Of the Orange’s current seven-man rotation, only Trevor Cooney’s role is about the same as it was last season. So there have expectedly been kinks to work out all season. Two games against North Carolina (both losses), three games against Pittsburgh (all losses), a road game at Louisville (loss), a road game at Duke (signature win), and so on, forced SU to grow fast or fail even faster.It’s now clear, more than ever, which path it chose. It’s also fitting that ACC play, probably the seminal reason the Orange received an at-large Tournament bid, is now what separates it from the Final Four. But Syracuse prepared for this test by taking it more than two months ago. By taking it all season, really. By having no choice but to learn on the fly and parlay that dilemma into one of its biggest strength.“I think it was a huge help for this team to be tested so much all year,” Roberson said Saturday. “We needed that. I think all teams need that, but it helped us because we may have not all been used to our roles and we just had to figure it out while playing really good teams. We’re ready, more than anything we’re just ready for anything.”Jesse Dougherty is a Senior Staff Writer at The Daily Orange, where his column appears occasionally. He can be reached at jcdoug01@syr.edu or @dougherty_jesse. Commentscenter_img CHICAGO — Somewhere along the line, the right side of the NCAA Tournament bracket turned into an ACC tournament encore.The only difference, really, is that the games aren’t being sponsored by New York Life.“Our league is tough. I mean you can’t … I learned a long time ago that it’s a foolish game to say one league is better than the other,” Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said of the Atlantic Coast Conference, after his team beat Gonzaga on Friday night.“There’s just too many variables. I think the top conferences are very, very good, and it’s an imperfect system to say, well, they did better in the NCAA Tournament. I mean you can use that, but I don’t know. It’s very difficult.”Boeheim’s right, there are way too many factors in play to solely rank conferences based on NCAA Tournament results, so here’s what we can all agree on: The ACC can claim four teams in the Elite Eight and has fully monopolized one of the two roads to the national championship game in Houston. Tenth-seeded Syracuse (22-13, 9-9 ACC) and top-seeded Virginia (29-7, 13-5) will square off in the Midwest regional final in the United Center at 6:09 p.m. on Sunday. Sixth-seeded Notre Dame and top-seeded North Carolina will play in the East Regional final in Philadelphia at 8:49 p.m. The winner of the two games will then meet in the Final Four, and the winner of that will represent the conference in the national championship game.
