‘More Confirmed Cases of Ebola in Cape Mount’

By on January 18, 2020

first_imgGrand Cape Mount has reported an alarming upsurge of the deadly Ebola virus with 49 new cases registered so far.The Head of the Incident Management System (IMS) and Assistant Minister for Preventive Services at the Ministry of Health, Tolbert Nyenswah, making the disclosure Sunday at the IMS offices in Monrovia, said that of the 49 new cases reported, 27 were confirmed, 13 suspected and 9 probable, putting Cape Mount in the Red County Category second to Montserrado in the country.Describing it as unfortunate, Minister Nyenswah attributed the increase to migration of people suspected of the virus and the continuous denial by some residents that people are dying of the Ebola epidemic in the country.According to the Minister, many people are still observing traditional and cultural practices, which undermine the fight against the deadly Ebola virus and stifle efforts made by the IMS and other international and local partners.  “We have people still traditionally preparing the dead body before burial and secret burials are still taking place in the county causing the spread of the virus. We need to desist from these (practices) with the deadly Ebola virus still threatening,” he stressed.There is a high level of complacency and gross disregard for the preventive measures that were laid down by the Ministry of Health and its partners to contain the spread of the Ebola virus, he said.Minister Nyenswah reported that people in Cape Mount were not observing constant hand-washing with soap and chlorine solution. He said that they are also keeping sick people in their communities, getting in close personal contact with them and often do not report suspected Ebola cases.With the alarming number of new cases in the county, the IMS and its partners will open the Ebola Treatment Unit in Sinje and move in with more ambulances and health workers to ensure that the situation is put under control. “We are also installing new Labs in the next two weeks to have more people tested. We will also carry out a massive mobilization of partners to support the county health team in ensuring the IMS does not have any problem of containing this outbreak in the county,” Minister Nyenswah added.The Minister disclosed further that the 49 reported cases from Cape Mount have generated over 200 contacts in and outside of the county, which he said needed urgency to contain the situation. He appealed to local residents to work with health practitioners to address the problem.Monsterrado County remains the hotspot of the Ebola Virus Disease, but the IMS and partners are working to ensure that ‘zero new cases’ is achieved and Liberia is declared Ebola free, he said.He added that Nimba, which has not reported any case for the past 63 days, has now reported one new case, but the IMS is working to guarantee that all measures are put in place to handle the situation there.The Minister emphasized that only behavioral change of every Grand Cape Mount citizen and resident will help to stop the spread of the virus, stating that everybody needed to adhere to all the preventive measures to break the transmission of the Ebola disease.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Boy, 13, Dies in Fire

By on January 14, 2020

first_imgDevastated, Mrs. Dakel has lost her child and her homeA fire incident on Duport Road early Tuesday, April 4, destroyed a six-bedroom house, resulting in the death of 13-year old Mustapha Dakel, and destruction of properties worth nearly US$30,000.The incident also left 15 persons homeless and destitute after it destroyed “everything in the house,” according to eyewitnesses.“I was in my room packing my drugs when my son Mustapha called me several times that there was fire in the drug store; and so I went out to see what was happening but the heavy smoke prevented me from reaching him and even taking anything out of the house,” Mrs. Dakel told the Daily Observer.Mrs. Dakel is a Registered Nurse and works at the James N. Davies Hospital in Neezoe, Paynesville.She said she suspected that a number of young people she claimed are addicted to harmful drugs may be responsible for the incident. But the Daily Observer could not get any confirmation of her statement because neither officers of the Liberia National Police nor the Fire Service Department visited the scene to investigate the cause of the fire.Mrs. Dakel, however, said, “Many times I have warned some of them to not be around my children or my house. Because of that some of them have rudely reacted to my warnings and continued to move between houses here during the night hours when people are in bed.”She said Mustapha started sleeping in the drug store after criminals broke into the store one night recently and made away with over L$100,000 and US$500 in cash and an estimated US$30,000 worth of drugs.Mrs. Dakel said her husband, along with some men in the neighborhood, tried to save Mustapha without success.“When I heard the noise I came out of my room with my children and could not save any of our belongings,” said Ms. Zinna Dakel, the sister of Mrs. Dakel.Although she later revealed that there was a gallon of gasoline in the house, she maintained her lack of knowledge on what led to the fire outbreak.The family is meanwhile calling on the government and kind hearted persons to help them resettle because they are currently in an overcrowded and unfinished house.The family can be reached on 0770152001 for any offer of assistance.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Officials encourage spring fire safety

By on

first_imgTo ensure fire safety, the Forest Ministry also recommends that a fire site is located away from buildings, trees and combustible materials, and that wind conditions be taken into consideration. A burn registration number is required to burn piles larger than three metres wide by two metres high, or for burns exceeding 0.2 hectares (more than 2,000 square metres). Numbers can be attained free of charge by calling 1-888 797-1717. To report a wildfire or unattended campfire, call 1-800-663-5555 or *5555 on most cellular networks. By Christine Rumleskie Fire officials are urging Fort St. John residents to take caution during their annual spring cleanup. The Forest Ministry sent out a warning to British Columbians on April 1st, urging residents to be careful when backyard burning this spring. – Advertisement -Captain Greg Nicoll with the Fort St. John Fire Department says even though there’s still snow on the ground, residents should still take caution when lighting a match. [asset|aid=2712|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=4a69b3f8c7d4d82e04964fedb999c018-Greg Nicols 2_1_Pub.mp3] Nicoll says the rule of thumb is to avoid lighting a fire, and instead take all backyard debris to a local dump.Advertisementcenter_img He says if homeowners decide to light a fire, they should tell their neighbours, and call the local fire department to give firefighters a heads-up.Although uncontrolled backyard fires do tend to cause wildfires, Captain Nicoll says it’s still too early to predict the impact of the upcoming fire season.

Highest temperatures will be around 16 or 17 degrees with northerly breezes, and the night-time will be cool and clear.Some showers may still occur during Friday but generally the weather will be mainly dry, but with no great improvement in temperatures. However it does begin to get warmer during Saturday as a ridge of high-pressure settles over Ireland and temperatures rise 19 to 21 degrees.There should be good sunny spells throughout Saturday with very few showers. During Sunday outbreaks of rain will occur over Ulster, Connacht and north-Leinster, but the rest of the country will be largely dry.

ScienceShot: Marmosets Chat Like We Do

By on December 3, 2019

first_imgIf you know how to take your turn in polite conversation, you have at least one thing in common with the common marmoset. A group of researchers recorded pairs of these rat-sized monkeys (Callithrix jacchus, above) as they exchanged their piercing “phee” calls from opposite sides of a curtain. Surprisingly, the two calls never overlapped, even in exchanges lasting as long as 30 minutes. Frogs and insects are known to space out their calls so that potential mates can hear their individual voices. But the marmoset’s painfully shrill repartee is more complex and likely serves a different purpose, the group reports online today in Current Biology. This attentive creature leaves a uniform pause (about 5 seconds) before responding to its neighbor’s call, and adjusts its rhythm if the neighbor speeds up or slows down. The cooperative pattern strongly resembles human conversation, the authors say, and it doesn’t occur in our closer primate relatives, such as chimpanzees. The researchers suggest that man and marmoset both evolved turn-taking because we share important social traits: We’re highly vocal and we form social groups to care for our offspring collectively. So why does it pay to wait your turn? Alternating calls might make it easier to transmit a message over background noise. (For tree-dwelling marmosets, this message likely includes the age, sex, or location of the distant caller.) Turn-taking may also relieve stress by allowing marmosets to acknowledge one another from a distance rather than spouting random “phees” in a neighbor’s general direction. It’s comforting to know someone is listening.See more ScienceShots.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)last_img read more

Andrew Wiggins led Minnesota with 26 points and Karl-Anthony Towns had 18.Aldridge had one of his most complete games with the Spurs, two days after signing a three-year, $72 million extension. He shot 9 for 21 from the field and had four assists.He was limited to five attempts in the first quarter as the Spurs did not go out of their way to get the ball to their 6-foot-11 forward, but instead let him ease into the contest.ADVERTISEMENT “I’m just going to play and whatever happens, happens,” Aldridge said. “I’m more comfortable for sure. Playing more confident. Hopefully that translates to us being better out there.”Aldridge’s running dunk on a bounce pass from Manu Ginobili gave the Spurs a 100-92 lead with 1:42 remaining.“They deserved a lot of credit for executing down the stretch against a very talented, well-coached team,” Popovich said.Ginobili finished nine points and four assists, including a 3-pointer within a minute of entering the game midway through the first quarter. Ginobili received a huge ovation similar to the one he got in the team’s final game last season when fans were not sure if he would return.Danny Green added 17 points while shooting 3 for 7 on 3-pointers. Green had two 3-pointers in the fourth quarter, both off assists from new teammate Rudy Gay.Gay, who signed with the Spurs after four seasons in Sacramento, had 14 points and five rebounds.Dejounte Murray had 16 points, five rebounds and two assists while starting in place of Parker.TIP-INSWolves: Minnesota’s last victory over San Antonio came April 8, 2014, in Minneapolis. The Timberwolves have lost 12 straight to the Spurs and eight straight in San Antonio. … After being one of the league’s youngest teams the past few seasons, Minnesota has only one rookie on its roster this season, 7-foot center Justin Patton. Patton missed the season opener while recovering from surgery on his left foot.Spurs: Popovich said there is no timetable for Leonard’s return from right quadriceps tendinopathy. … Parker plans on returning in mid-November from a left quadriceps tendon surgery. … San Antonio swept all four games against Minnesota last season, winning by an average of 9.0 points.WELCOME BACKGay, who had not played since tearing his Achilles tendon in January, was glad to be back on the court.“Man, it felt good,” Gay said. “I kind of got emotional in the game just because I’ve been through so much these last couple of months. I’ve been getting so many text messages that motivate me to keep going. It just reminds me of what I’ve been through these last couple of months.”Gay’s opening basket was an emphatic dunk with a minute remaining in the first quarter.MURRAY MOVING ALONGMurray, in his second year out of Washington, had two assists and two turnovers while shooting 7 for 8 from the field in 25 minutes.“He’s playing with much better composure, much more control of the game and directing the team,” Spurs center Pau Gasol said. “But he’s also taking advantage of his athleticism and opportunities.”NO EXCUSES Fire hits houses in Mandaluyong City Aldridge had 25 points and 10 rebounds, and San Antonio held on for a 107-99 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night while playing without leading scorer Kawhi Leonard.“He just didn’t feel comfortable and it’s 98.75 percent on me,” Popovich said of Aldridge’s struggles. “I tried to change him, I tried to make him a different player and I think that really affected his ability to feel comfortable and confident on the court. And we took care of that, basically by me letting him know that we’re going to do it differently.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutSan Antonio needs Aldridge to feel at ease with the team missing Leonard and Tony Parker to injuries.
