first_imgTopics : Resurgence fears Those findings were “crucial for policy makers everywhere”, said Tim Colbourn, an expert in global health epidemiology at University College London, who was not directly involved in the study.Stunned by the disease’s rapid spread, governments around the world are trying to replicate China’s draconian lockdown measures while also working out the risk of recurrences once the epidemic peaks have passed in their countries.”Our results won’t look exactly the same in another country,” said Yang Liu, an LSHTM expert who also worked on the research. “But we think one thing probably applies everywhere: physical distancing measures are very useful, and we need to carefully adjust their lifting to avoid subsequent waves of infection … If those waves come too quickly, that could overwhelm health systems.”World Health Organization director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on Wednesday expressed the same view, saying lockdowns were the best way to curb transmission.”The last thing any country needs is to open schools and businesses only to be forced to close them again because of a resurgence,” he said.  “The city now needs to be really careful to avoid prematurely lifting physical distancing measures, because that could lead to an earlier secondary peak in cases,” said Kiesha Prem, a specialist at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), who co-led the research.”If they relax the restrictions gradually, this is likely to both delay and flatten the peak.”The study used mathematical modeling to simulate either extending or relaxing school and workplace closures in Wuhan, a city of 11 million people whose name has become synonymous with the coronavirus for much of the world.By lifting control measures now, a second rush of infections may occur in late August, the analysis suggested. But keeping lockdown measures until April would likely delay a second peak until October — giving healthcare workers a chance to regroup.center_img Extending school and work closures at the coronavirus’ ground zero in China may delay a second wave of infections, researchers said on Thursday, urging the rest of the world to take note.With containment measures largely successful and the epidemic’s epicenter now in Europe, China has loosened a two-month lockdown in the city of Wuhan where the new coronavirus is thought to have jumped from wildlife to people late last year.But a study in The Lancet Public Health journal suggested continuing Wuhan’s shutdowns until April would push a potential second wave of COVID-19 – the disease caused by the new virus – until later in the year. That would give health services more time to recover and expand, potentially saving lives.last_img read more

first_imgWilliam continued by saying that the company continuously built, developed and improved its procedures and prevention and mitigation measures in its security systems according to the best standards in the world.“As an added precaution, we have advised all users of additional steps they should take to ensure they are protected, such as changing their password on Tokopedia, not using the same password on other digital platforms and not sharing OTP codes with anyone for any reason,” he said, adding that user passwords were encrypted with one-way encryption.Previously, Communications and Information Minister Johnny G. Plate said that users’ financial data were “safe” after a meeting with Tokopedia’s board of directors.“Tokopedia has explained that user accounts and financial data are safe,” the minister said. “It was conveyed [during the meeting that Tokopedia’s] security system cannot be breached, although data relating to names, emails and telephone numbers may have partly been accessed by hackers.” E-commerce platform Tokopedia has announced that it has appointed an independent global institution specializing in cybersecurity to improve its security system following the recent data breach that affected millions of its users.The decision was publicized in a letter sent by the Tokopedia CEO William Tanuwijaya to all its users on Tuesday, more than a week after the report on the data breach circulated.“On May 2, 2020, we became aware of a theft of Tokopedia users’ personal data by an unauthorized third party,” William said in the letter. Topics :center_img He said the company had taken steps to address the incident, including informing all users, commencing an investigation and taking necessary actions to ensure the safety and security of its users’ accounts and transactions.“In addition to a thorough internal investigation, we have also appointed a top independent global institution specializing in cybersecurity to help investigate the data theft and identify additional protection enhancements for our users’ data,” he said.Cybersecurity research collective Under the Breach previously reported that up to 91 million records, including email addresses and encrypted passwords from the company’s user database were put up for sale on the dark web for US$5,000.Since then, Tokopedia has been collaborating with government agencies including the Communications and Information Ministry and the National Cyber and Encryption Agency (BSSN) to investigate the incident.last_img read more

first_imgBrazil will instead join the other South American nations and “support Colombia in the dispute to host” the tournament, the organization said.Brazil’s withdrawal means Colombia, Japan and a joint bid from Australia and New Zealand are the remaining contenders to host the 32-team tournament.  Brazil has withdrawn its candidacy to host the 2023 Women’s World Cup, with the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) saying the government did not consider it wise to offer financial guarantees in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.”Because of the fiscal and economic austerity brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, (the government) thought it would not be recommended to right now sign the guarantees asked for by FIFA,” the CBF said in a statement on Monday.Brazil has hosted a string of international sporting competitions in recent years – including the World Cup in 2014, the Olympic Games in 2016 and the Copa America in 2019 – and the CBF also felt they were outsiders to host yet another major event.

first_img Economy,  Español,  Press Release Cerca de 2,000 hogares en Pennsylvania recibirán ayuda para la viviendaEl Gobernador Tom Wolf anunció hoy los beneficiarios de una nueva ronda de financiación para programas de vivienda disponible a través del fondo de Mejora de la asequibilidad y rehabilitación de viviendas de Pennsylvania (PHARE, por sus siglas en inglés). El gobernador nombró 214 iniciativas de vivienda y desarrollo comunitario en 67 condados que compartirán una parte del total de $45.79 millones en fondos de PHARE. El fondo PHARE, que a veces se denomina Fondo Fiduciario de Vivienda del estado, es administrado por la Agencia de Financiamiento de Vivienda de Pennsylvania.“El programa PHARE tiene éxito debido a su flexibilidad y su capacidad para aprovechar las asociaciones y el liderazgo locales para abordar de manera efectiva las amplias necesidades de vivienda”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “Motiva a las organizaciones locales y a los funcionarios electos a unirse y decidir conjuntamente la mejor manera de mejorar el inventario de viviendas de su comunidad. PHARE está marcando una diferencia positiva en todo el estado”.La financiación del programa PHARE proviene de tres fuentes principales. Desde 2012, el programa ha recibido una parte de las tarifas de impacto recaudadas de las empresas de gas natural que operan en el estado con el objetivo de abordar la escasez de viviendas causada por el impacto de perforación. Eso se complementa con otras dos fuentes de financiamiento que incluyen una parte del impuesto a la transferencia de bienes raíces y dinero del Fondo Fiduciario Nacional de Vivienda (NHTF, por sus siglas en inglés).Se espera que la financiación de PHARE de hoy afecte a cerca de 2,000 hogares de Pennsylvania a través de una variedad de iniciativas de financiación:Asistencia de alquiler/servicios públicosAsistencia con el pago inicial/costos de cierre para compradores de vivienda por primera vezIniciativas de remediación de plagaconservación y rehabilitación de viviendas de alquiler, yOtros proyectos y programas innovadores“La pandemia actual ha demostrado cuán importante es la vivienda asequible y por qué necesitamos más”, dijo el Director Ejecutivo y CEO de PHFA, Robin Wiessmann. “Desde su inicio en 2012, PHARE ha demostrado ser una fuente de financiación invaluable para ayudar a las comunidades a abordar sus necesidades de vivienda más urgentes”.Por lo menos $32.4 millones de los $45.79 millones asignados hoy se utilizarán para financiar proyectos de vivienda que beneficien a hogares con ingresos por debajo del 50 por ciento del ingreso medio del área. Esto representa el 71 por ciento de la financiación concedida.Una lista de las propuestas que reciben fondos de PHARE está disponible en www.phfa.org/legislation/act105.aspx.

first_img Asked if that meant Jol would remain in charge but that he would take charge of things on the training ground most days, Meulensteen added: “That’s the sort of thing we discussed and that’s where my strength is, that’s what I’ve done for so many years for Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United (where) it was very clear who was in charge, and that’s not going to be any different at Fulham.” Meulensteen, who left United’s coaching team this summer following Ferguson’s departure and then had an ill-fated spell in charge of Russian Anzhi Makhachkala, had been closely linked with the vacant managerial post at Crystal Palace. The Dutchman was bemused by that speculation though, saying: “To be honest it was a bit of a surprise to myself that I was so strongly linked with Crystal Palace because I never really had formal contact with them, so I don’t know what happened there. “The last five months have been very turbulent for me but I’m happy that finally we came to this decision (with Fulham), I’m very happy with it.” Press Association “Hopefully I can bring a new sort of energy to the whole place because they’ve got good enough footballers,” the Dutchman told Sky Sports News. “Fulham is a football team, that’s what they are good at, they just need to make sure they do the basic things right; taking responsibility, being disciplined, and work hard, and then the results will come.” He added: “I know the Premier League really well, it is obviously different because with Manchester United we had different ambitions which were quite clear but hopefully my experience and my expertise will help Fulham climb up the table.” Meulensteen said his role at Fulham would mirror the one he had at Manchester United, with him taking the lead in training and Jol looking to take a step back. However, as was the case with Ferguson at Old Trafford, Meulensteen insists there will not be any doubt as to who will be calling the shots overall. The appointment of the 49-year-old raised has questions over the future of his compatriot Jol, who has found himself in the spotlight following Fulham’s disappointing start to the season. “It will be very similar to how I worked with Sir Alex Ferguson. Martin is obviously a very, very experienced manager in the game. “I think Martin comes to a time in his life as a manager, he’s got an experience and he wants to step back a little bit and give the groundwork over to somebody like myself, and I think we can perfectly work well together,” said Meulensteen. New head coach Rene Meulensteen believes Fulham have the talent to climb away from the Barclays Premier League relegation zone but that they need to get the basics right. Meulensteen joined Fulham on Wednesday to work alongside under-pressure coach Martin Jol with the Cottagers stuck in the bottom three of the standings having lost seven of their 11 games this season. However, Meulensteen, Sir Alex Ferguson’s former assistant at Manchester United, believes Fulham have the quality and ability in their squad to be further up the table and need to get the less glamourous things right. last_img read more

first_img “The boring answer is that’s just all part of sport, part of football and whatever happens, the lads who start on Friday night will give it everything they’ve got, and that’s all we can hope for.” O’Shea and Jonathan Walters are suspended for Friday’s first leg in Zenica and with Long also a doubt, Ipswich striker Daryl Murphy’s return to goalscoring form with a hat-trick – his first goals of the season – for his club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Rotherham could hardly have been better-timed. Murphy said: “It was nice – it was about time. It was nice to get on the scoresheet and up and running for the season. “It was a little bit of relief. I had been getting chances in games previously, it was just a case of taking one. I have been playing well in the last few weeks, so I knew that I would get chances. It was just a case of putting one away.” Current Town boss Mick McCarthy joked after the game that Murphy, who was handed a rare start for his country in last month’s famous 1-0 qualifier victory over world champions Germany, had been playing as if he were his sister before that. Murphy said with a smile: “It’s just a little bit of banter between me and the manager. We always have it, but I had a giggle at that one, all right.” Keane had no qualms about the clubs’ stances on the respective injuries, but admitted his surprise in general terms about the attitude of clubs to fitness problems. The former Sunderland and Ipswich manager said: “You ask any of the players who worked under me, I never had a problem with players going away for internationals, never. “I never ruled them out for 10-14 days every time there was an international match, I know that. If players were fit, they would go away. But if players aren’t fit, you have got to respect the clubs. If the players aren’t fit, then of course they stay at their clubs. “But it’s ironic that they all seem to get ruled out for 10-14 days. And again, not just the managers you have mentioned, it’s happened with a few other club managers who have been international managers themselves.” Keane and O’Neill hope to have updates on Elliot, who turned in a fine individual display for the Magpies at Bournemouth on Saturday despite nursing a thigh problem, O’Shea, who has not played since October 25 because of a hamstring injury, and Long, who had an injection in the foot he damaged in Poland last month on Monday, over the next 48 hours. However, the assistant manager admitted he had all but ruled out the trio some time ago because of the nature of their injuries. Keane said: “It’s part of the game. With the injuries we’ve had over the last two or three weeks, I kind of ruled the boys out anyway. “If they become available in the next day or two, particularly for the second leg, it will be a fantastic bonus because with the injuries they had, they were sore ones. Keane, number two to Republic of Ireland boss Martin O’Neill, suggested it was “ironic” that players are often conveniently adjudged to be 10-14 days away from a return by their employers when they are due to meet up with their countries. His comments came as he and O’Neill awaited news on five players, most notably Newcastle goalkeeper Rob Elliot, Sunderland defender John O’Shea and Southampton striker Shane Long, ahead of Ireland’s Euro 2016 play-off against Bosnia-Herzegovina. Press Association Roy Keane has questioned club managers ruling out injured players for up to a fortnight during international breaks. last_img read more

first_img The Bayern Munich boss, who is favourite to take over from Manuel Pellegrini at the end of the season after revealing he wants to work in the Premier League, sold Toure when the pair were at Barcelona. Dimitri Seluk told the Sunday Mirror: “Pep is a great coach. But he has won the title at Barcelona and Bayern Munich. “He sets out a very specific plan for the team to follow and the best managers, in my experience, are the ones who are very clear on what they want from the team. “His message is very clear – if you follow his philosophy you will be very successful. “I think Guardiola will be a success wherever he goes.” Gudjohnsen does not believe Guardiola will be able to tempt Barcelona star Lionel Messi to join him at his new club, however. “No, I cant see that (happening). It’s as simple as that,” he said. Press Association Yaya Toure’s agent has claimed Pep Guardiola is over-rated as a manager and admitted his concern he would look to get rid of the 32-year-old should he take over at Manchester City. “The truth is that my grandfather would win the title with Barcelona and Bayern Munich because they are big clubs with great players. “I’d like to see Pep take a club that is eighth or ninth and make them champions.” Guardiola sold Toure to City in 2010, the Ivorian not fitting into his plans for Barcelona. Seluk added: “I don’t know what Guardiola’s plans are, but – after what happened at Barcelona – of course it is a worry that when he comes Yaya will be out. “I hope not and Yaya hopes not.” Eidur Gudjohnsen, who played under Guardiola for a year at Barcelona, is convinced the Catalan will deliver trophies at whichever club he ends up at, however. “He is excellent. He is one of the best coaches I have worked for,” the former Chelsea player told BBC Radio 5 Live’s Sportsweek programme. “He is unbelievably organised. He has an eye for detail and organisation in training and in games. last_img read more
