Anies issues decree on increasing Jakarta’s COVID-19 alertness level

Posted on by

first_imgIn addition, Anies said the city administration would form a special COVID-19 command center for preventing, monitoring and addressing a potential outbreak. However, he said Jakarta residents should not be unduly alarmed. “Go about your day as usual and don’t spread news that has not been confirmed as true,” he said on Sunday as quoted by Antara news agency.The decree comes amid the viral circulation of a photograph that reportedly shows a Jakarta Health Agency report on a possible outbreak in the city. Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan has issued a gubernatorial decree on increasing the capital’s alertness in response to the global outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).In the decree, issued on Tuesday, Anies urged all city officials – including mayors, agency heads and district and subdistrict heads – to step up efforts to educate the public about the deadly virus.“We are supporting and organizing events to educate the public about how to mitigate the risks of COVID-19 infection in Jakarta,” Anies said in the decree. The post, which has since been mostly removed from social media, shows a presentation slide depicting a pie chart with the caption “COVID-19 cases based on case criteria,” with 32 cases marked as being under “supervision” and 115 cases as being “monitored.”The agency issued a statement to clarify the image on Friday, stating that the term “COVID-19 cases” on the slide only meant patients who had exhibited symptoms of the disease and had recently traveled to affected countries.center_img “The Jakarta Health Agency hereby states that all lab test results have shown that there are no COVID-19 patients in Jakarta,” the agency’s disease control and prevention division head, Dwi Oktavia, said in the statement. She acknowledged, however, that 115 people were being “monitored’ and that 32 people were “under supervision”, but did not detail whether these people had been tested for the disease or not. Dwi Oktavia did not immediately respond to The Jakarta Post’s requests for comment.

Egypt Dares Nigeria in Morocco

Posted on by

first_imgITTF AFRICAN CHAMPIONSHIPSThe defeat Egypt suffered against Nigeria in the final of the men’s team event of the 2015 African Games is still fresh in the memory of Omar Assar and the Egyptian believes this year’s ITTF African Senior Championship would help to settle score against the West African giant.Apart from the team event heartache in Congo Brazzaville, Assar has revenge in his mind against Aruna Quadri, whom he said has been in fine form lately. “I do believe that Egypt is the strongest country in Africa and I trust my teammates and coaches that we can show that in Morocco. I look forward to the classic final between Egypt and Nigeria, which has always been very fun to play and to watch as well for the spectators.“I have been preparing very well for this event and I am looking forward to a great performance. I had two weeks of physical, mental and technical preparation in Germany where I had my last training camp so I can say I am waiting for my good performance in Morocco,” stressed the African star.Assar however admits that Quadri is in fine form and that the battle in Morocco will be fierce.“I must admit that Aruna Quadri has played in top level recently in the French league and international events, so it will be interesting to see our match in Morocco especially in the men’s singles. I expect a good start with my teammates in team event first, then in singles I am very hungry to display a very good performance.”“For sure, when it comes to Egypt and when you represent Egypt, you always look for gold not only in Africa but everywhere else. I must also say that our women team is very strong and stable, however some injuries can affect the team but I see that there are some new young stars are coming now and they are fresh and hungry to win. Also Dina Meshref has been playing in such a high level tournaments and she showed that she is one of the best African female player at all time.”“Table tennis in Africa has taken a different shape since the new board of African Table Tennis Federation (ATTF) came on board because there have been conscious efforts to promote the sport and I am very happy that I can see that ITtv is covering the African events almost everywhere. But we are waiting for much more and expecting more promotion locally in Egypt and Nigeria.”As a Pan Africanist, Assar said: “I would love to see one day that there is something called Team Africa and they play regularly with teams from Europe and Asia from time to time. This would surely help the players to improve themselves.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Turnovers are still a concern

Posted on by

first_imgRedshirt freshman quarterback Sam Darnold takes the snap and rolls out as the pass rush closes in. He cuts upfield, finds daylight and breaks toward the end zone. But Darnold loses the ball as he dives for the goal line, killing the Trojans’ drive at the one-yard line.That was how USC’s first possession ended in Saturday’s game against Colorado. The Trojans eventually battled to a 21-17 victory over the Buffaloes, but they had to overcome four turnovers on the way — three from Darnold, who lost two fumbles and threw an interception. Only an excellent defensive performance allowed USC to drive down the field and score the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter. When the Trojan offense opened the second half with turnovers on their first three possessions, the Buffaloes managed just a single touchdown thanks to a quickly forced three-and-out and an acrobatic interception from junior cornerback Adoree’ Jackson.To be sure, the Trojans didn’t have a poor offensive game. They racked up a season-best 539 total yards on offense, Darnold passed for a career-high 358 and junior wideout JuJu Smith-Schuster notched more than 100 receiving yards for the second straight week. Darnold even miraculously spun a fumble into a touchdown, scrambling in the red zone before finding sophomore tight end Tyler Petite near the pylon.“He’s able to make things happen that wouldn’t be available [for other players],” Petite said of his quarterback after catching two scores on Saturday. “He’s special.”And for that reason, head coach Clay Helton was hesitant to rein in his dynamic signal caller, despite Darnold losing the ball on several occasions.“When you have a kid with this instinct and creative ability, I don’t think you handcuff him,” Helton said. “I told him, ‘Drive it like you stole it.’ You play the game with no fear, and he does.”It’s easy to understand Helton’s sentiment, as USC has been a rejuvenated team since the 19-year-old replaced redshirt junior Max Browne under center. The Trojans have suddenly become fumble-prone, however, capping the offense’s potential. The team  hasn’t exactly been a hallmark of ball security all season, but since Darnold’s first start against Utah, USC has fumbled 10 times in three games, losing six. Darnold is responsible for four of them (three lost), but two other Trojans — Jackson and senior tailback Justin Davis — have also put the ball on the ground multiple times.“As an offense, you’re not going to win a ton of games turning the ball over four times,” Darnold said. “It’s something we have to keep working on in practice.”Indeed, USC might need to correct the issue if the team wants a win at Arizona. The Wildcats have forced six fumbles this season, recovering four, and have five interceptions as a team—although they forced two-thirds of their turnovers this year in a single game against Grambling State. You have to go back a decade, to a 20-3 Trojan victory in 2006, to find the last contest between USC and Arizona that ended with a two-possession winning margin. The Trojans upset the No. 10 Wildcats during their most recent visit to Tucson in 2014, but it was only thanks to a shanked field goal that would have put Arizona ahead with seconds left to play.In a game that could very well go down to the wire, another afternoon like last Saturday could cost USC the game and the season, which can hardly withstand another loss with the Trojans’ middling 3-3 record and a brutal end-of-season schedule on tap. Fortunately, Darnold isn’t dwelling on any mistakes, and he isn’t lacking in confidence.“No matter what anyone else thinks, you just have to control what you can control. You can’t control the past. You just have to look ahead,” he said. “In the end, you just have to look ahead and take it play after play.”That’s exactly the attitude a head coach wants his starter to have as he encourages his team to have a “playoff mentality.” Helton said every week would be treated like a championship game from here on out, but as long as Darnold was continuing to progress, Helton won’t hesitate to let the redshirt freshman go through his growing pains.“There will be mistakes … but he’s one of those guys that you don’t make a robot,” Helton said. “I’m very proud of where he’s at. He’s not a finished product by any means, but he’s helping us win football games.”After all, in a playoff run, that’s all that matters.last_img read more
