Hospital association slams govt for claiming false COVID-19 diagnoses by doctors

October 19, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: kkcykwsge.

first_imgThe controversial claim was made by Presidential Chief of Staff Moeldoko following a meeting with Central Java Governor Ganjar Pranowo in Semarang on Thursday.Moeldoko conveyed his skepticism regarding the number of fatalities declared to have been caused by or linked to the coronavirus disease, claiming that a “redefinition” should be in order to avoid loopholes that could be exploited to the benefit of certain parties.“Not all deaths are caused by COVID-19,” he said. “This needs to be clarified. Don’t let this benefit those who seek profit from the [medical] definition.”Ganjar supported Moeldoko’s claim, saying that false COVID-19 diagnoses had been made in Central Java.“Such a thing has happened in Central Java. There were people diagnosed for COVID-19 and then died before their test results came back,” he said.“It turned out that their test results came back negative. It was unfortunate, […] we need to address this issue.” (rfa) Furthermore, the bold claim, as it was not supported by any data or evidence, could help create a misleading narrative that cast hospitals in an unfavorable light, he added.Instead of making tone-deaf statements, Kuntjoro encouraged the government to make constructive criticism and to bolster its support of hospitals.“PERSI […] is open to collaboration with other stakeholders to improve the healthcare system, including COVID-19 treatment,” he said.Read also: COVID-19 deaths ‘redefinition’ prompts pushback – National Topics :center_img The Indonesian Hospital Association (PERSI) has expressed dismay over the government’s suggestion that some health facilities across the country had used COVID-19 diagnoses for profit, noting that it would only further erode public trust in the country’s healthcare system amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis.PERSI chairman Kuntjoro Adi Purjanto said such a statement could only serve to stigmatize health workers’ sincere efforts to treat coronavirus patients and prevent further deaths as the pandemic continues unabated.“[The claim] could massively influence public trust in hospitals and betray health workers’ unwavering dedication,” he said in a written statement issued on Sunday, as quoted by read more

La Liga to return with matches every day

As lockdown restrictions are lifted players and teams have now begun to return to training with a resumption of the season being lined up next month.The logistics of doing so remain firmly up in the air but Tebas is confident that despite concerns a solution will be found to get players back on the field quickly and, most importantly, safely.“I don’t know when football will return. I don’t know if the most probable date is June 19, I would like it to be June 12. It will depend on spikes and contagions,” Tebas told Movistar.“There would be league games daily for 35 days, 24 hours before the game the players will be tested.“The lowest risk will be during games, I ask that health regulations are followed to get to the start with as few infected as possible. “We’re very on top of the control of players, at home I ask that they keep following the protocol.“Our conduct should be exemplary to society, I see a lot of responsibility on the players.”Testing remained a significant hurdle with player and staff safety paramount in any season restart.It was announced on Sunday that five players from the top two divisions had tested positive for COVID-19.But Tebas believed positive tests are to be expected even if they will ultimately prove a rarity. “You have to adapt to the circumstances and we’ve worked on protocols, structuring ideas about how to act in the best conditions without causing harm,” he added.“We expected 25-30 positive tests, it’s good news for the football industry and Spanish society that there are eight positives, including non-footballers, among 2,500 tests.“Those players will have another kind of test on Tuesday, they are in the final stages of the illness.”Tags: COVID-19La LigaMatchesReturnSpainlast_img read more

Syracuse football opponent preview: What to know about No. 17 Florida State

September 16, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: kkcykwsge.

first_img Published on November 17, 2016 at 9:32 pm Contact Jon: | @jmettus Facebook Twitter Google+ The No. 17 team will march into the Carrier Dome for the second time this season when Florida State (7-3, 4-3 Atlantic Coast) comes to town Saturday at 3:30 p.m.On Oct. 15, the Orange (4-6, 2-4) upset then-No.17 Virginia Tech in SU’s first win over a ranked team since 2012, which sparked fans to storm the field and Dino Babers to make a passionate postgame speech that went viral.The No. 17 team in the country has lost six times this season.Syracuse needs to win its last two games of the year to secure a bowl berth, but SU could reach a bowl with just one win in the final two weeks if 5-7 teams are needed to fill bowls.Here’s what you need to know about the matchup.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAll-time series: Florida State leads 8-1 and has won the last eight meetings. Syracuse’s only win came in the first matchup between the teams in 1966 before the Carrier Dome was even built.Last time they played: Syracuse lost to then-No. 17 FSU in Tallahassee, 45-21, on Oct. 31, 2015. The Seminoles’ backup quarterback Sean Maguire compiled 348 yards and three passing touchdowns. Meanwhile Syracuse quarterback Eric Dungey ran in both of SU’s offensive touchdowns, but also completed only 11-of-24 passes for 120 yards and lost a fumble.The Orange pulled within seven with the score at 21-14 with a touchdown with less than a minute left in the first half. Florida State responded with 24 straights points. Syracuse’s Brisly Estime capped the scoring for the day with a punt return for a touchdown in garbage time with a minute and 20 seconds left in the blowout.The Florida State report: Syracuse head coach Dino Babers said Florida State is the “second best group of football players” the Orange will face behind only Clemson, which Babers called a flawless team. FSU’s best player is running back Dalvin Cook. He is rank second among Power 5 players in average yards from scrimmage (164.2) and third in total rush yards (1,242).“I didn’t know how fast he was until I saw the Clemson game,” Syracuse head coach Dino Babers said, “and I saw him run away from the Clemson secondary people. We couldn’t run away from Clemson’s secondary people. So he’s probably one of the fastest or the fastest back that we have in the conference. The guy’s just an exceptional, exceptional football player.”Cook’s ability opens up room in the passing game for freshman quarterback Deondre Francois, who’s thrown for 15 touchdowns this year and averages 267.5 yards through the air each game.Courtesy of FSU AthleticsFSU’s best area of offense comes in the red zone where it is successful 95.7 percent of the time — second-best in the country.Florida State’s defense boasts cornerback Tarvarus McFadden and defensive end DeMarcus Walker. McFadden’s seven interceptions put him at the top of that category nationally and Walker’s 11 sacks are third in the country. With a defensive line packed with four future NFL players, the Seminoles average 3.3 sacks per game — eighth best in the FBS.How Syracuse beats Florida State: Aside from Dungey making a miraculous recovery and playing in the game, there isn’t much hope for SU to win. A tattered Orange offensive line would need herculean performance to give Zack Mahoney enough time to find receivers down field. Even if Mahoney has time, there’s no guarantee on his ability to throw the ball consistently downfield. FSU averages nearly 35 points per game and even if the defense plays well the offense will still need to keep up.Stat to know: 1966 — The last and only time Syracuse beat Florida State was on Nov. 12, 1966. SU won 37-21 at Archbold Stadium. Floyd Little rushed for 193 yards and three touchdowns. Syracuse will be giving out bobbleheads of Little at the game on Saturday.Player to watch: Dalvin Cook, running back, No. 4Cook is an electrifying back with game-changing abilities. The junior needs just 19 yards to break Florida State’s career rushing record and 59 yards to become the first junior to top 4,000 career yards in ACC history. Syracuse’s defensive line is down its starting nose tackle so FSU’s offensive line and Cook could combine for a big day. Commentslast_img read more
