first_imgAuthorities in Anhui province, China, have reported that a Chinese national who visited Bali late last month has tested positive for the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), as Indonesian authorities scramble to verify the information on Wednesday.The administration announced via Weibo on Feb. 6 that the Huainan Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported on Feb. 5 that a patient, identified only as Jin, flew on Lion Air flight JT2618 from Wuhan – the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak – to Bali on Jan. 22. The patient stayed on the island for about a week before flying on Garuda Indonesia flight GA858 from Bali to Shanghai on Jan. 28.The patient was found to have been infected with the virus that causes the disease on Feb. 5 by Huainan CDC according to the Weibo post. “For passengers on the aforementioned flights, please enact preventative measures immediately,” wrote the Anhui administration on its Weibo account, which is a local version of Twitter.”Please don’t go out for a while and if you get a fever, go to the nearest hospital,” the statement said. “Please use masks when you travel to the medical center and don’t use public transportation,” it went on.Garuda Indonesia spokesman Dicky Irchamsyah said he had not yet received a report about the case but “will check up on it.” Lion Air spokesman Danang Mandala separately said he would also look into the case.Meanwhile, the Health Ministry’s disease control and environmental health director general, Anung Sugihantono, said his office had not yet received the information and was still “confirming it” but he was quick to say that it was “a rumor”. The ministry advises regular washing of hands, avoiding uncooked meat and wearing face masks when sick to minimize the chances of contracting the disease. The regulatory body also has two hotlines for more information: 021-5210-411 and 0812-1212-3119.The Post’s verificationThe Post first obtained the information about the Anhui administration’s statement from a Chinese citizen who sent a letter to us on Wednesday. The citizen provided two links: one was the Weibo post and the other was a search page for “Epidemic situation, public transportation epidemic inquiry”.We asked two Chinese journalists from two respected media in China to check whether the links are official or not and both confirmed that the links are official.The Chinese citizen who first informed us about the alert from the Anhui provincial authorities provided an English translation of the Weibo post and we also asked an Indonesian journalist friend who understands Chinese to translate it into Indonesian.The Post also ran a search with keyword “GA858” on the public transportation history site and found a result dated Jan. 28 that contained a link to the Weibo post from Anhui. We also searched the site with the keyword “JT2618” but it did not show any result.The Post tried to contact the Anhui and Huainan CDC offices on Wednesday to find more information about the patient but our calls were not answered. Indonesian Ambassador to China Djauhari Oratmangun told the Post he had yet to receive any information about the matter but he would find out more information.Topics :last_img read more

first_imgCloserOnLine 8 July 2014A Christian run bakery in Northern Ireland is facing legal action for refusing to bake a cake with Bert and Ernie on, as gay marriage goes against their religious beliefs.The manager of Ashers Baking Company said that the client wanted the cake to have a slogan in support of gay marriage on it, as well as an image of Sesame Streets Bert and Ernie but he denied the order as it would be ‘at odds with what the Bible teaches’.Northern Ireland is the only place in the UK where gay marriage is still illegal. The law is expected to be challenged later this year in the high court in Belfast. It is a possibility that action could go all the way to the European court of human rights.A statement was published on the company’s website defending it’s decision to deny the order.Daniel McArthur, Ashers Baking Company’s general manager said: “The directors and myself looked at it and considered it and thought that this order was at odds with our beliefs. read more

First World Cup memory10 June – 12 July 1998 (World Cup, France). France 1998 was the first World Cup where I actually knew what was going on. While the English media made it hard for people to remember anything but David Beckham’s red card against Argentina, it’s Michael Owen’s wonder goal and the “real” Ronaldo’s dominance (and disappearance) that has always stuck with me.Favourite World Cup:GoalGiovanni Van Bronckhorst (Netherlands v Uruguay, 2010). I think you can tell a lot about someone by the type of goal they choose when posed this kind of question. Although I have a lot of admiration for Argentina’s 24-pass goal vs. Serbia and Montenegro in 2006, Bergkamp’s control and finish against Argentina in 1998 and Maradona’s graceful dribble against England in 1986, you just can’t beat a thunderbolt screamer. I feel like Giovanni Van Bronckhorst’s 35-yard effort against Uruguay in 2010 doesn’t get as much credit as it deserves. It was the cleanest connection I think I’ve ever seen on a strike, as close to the top corner as you can get and it resulted in a hefty dose of karma for Uruguay and Luis Suarez in particular (see below). PlayerZinedine Zidane. There aren’t many players (if any at all) who moved around the soccer pitch with as much grace as Zinedine Zidane. Throughout his career, I watched in awe as Zidane controlled games with as much ease as he controlled the ball. His effortless skill, ability to pick a pass and eye for goal made him the complete package and he proved time and time again he could do it on the big stage. France’s success in 1998 was built on a solid defence but Zidane was undoubtedly the key man (not least because of his two goals in the final). It’s no coincidence that France struggled in 2002 without Zidane (he was injured for the first two games) but by 2006 he was back to his best. We’ll all remember the Frenchman’s headbutt in the final against Italy but his performance against Brazil in the quarterfinal was arguably the greatest individual performance at a World Cup. A moment of madness meant his country finished as runners-up but Zidane ended the tournament as the joint- second highest goal scorer and won the Golden Ball (best player at the tournament).TeamBrazil, 2002. The question of the best team in World Cup history sparked plenty of debate throughout Pinnacle’s offices in the build-up to this year’s tournament in Russia. We even ran The Pinnacle World Cup on Twitter to find out what the consensus was. Funnily enough, my favourite team actually won – the Brazil team from 2002. Despite a poor qualification campaign, Brazil won the 2002 World Cup with relative ease. The return of Ronaldo (he notched an impressive eight goals in the tournament) helped Brazil become only the third team in history to win every game at a World Cup (and the first in the extended format). They had a front line of Ronaldo, Rivaldo and Ronaldinho. What more do I need to say? GameUruguay v Ghana, 2010. Everyone has seen the highlight reels and most of us probably own a VHS or DVD of “The Greatest World Cup Games of All Time” and although there are plenty to choose from, I wanted to pick one that I vividly remember. It was by no means a game of high quality soccer and I’m not a fan of Luis Suarez’s gamesmanship but purely based on the drama I’ve gone for Uruguay vs. Ghana in 2010. After 120 minutes of tense quarterfinal action and almost unbearable vuvuzela-blowing, the match was level at 1-1 and destined to go to penalties. Ghana created one final chance that Suarez did well to initially block on the line but he decided to save the rebound effort with his hands and was sent off (Jorge Fucile was just in front of Suarez and also tried the same thing but missed). Of course, Asamoah Gyan missed the penalty that followed and Ghana lost the penalty shoot-out 4-2.KitCameroon, 2002. I think the 1980’s through to the late 90’s was a great period for international kits (and that’s why we’ve seen a lot of teams this year favouring a retro style design). I do really like Germany’s away strip for this year’s tournament, but I’ll have to pick Cameroon’s 2002 home kit for reasons beyond aesthetics. I remember being shocked at seeing Cameroon in a sleeveless basketball jersey-like top prior to the 2002 World Cup. When they lined up for their first game, the kit looked similar to the sleeveless one but actually had black sleeves (after being banned from wearing a sleeveless kit by FIFA, it was Cameroon’s creative way of protesting against the decision).The World Cup’s Finest is to be a regular feature during the Russia World Cup, profiling a different individual each week day, if you would like to be involved please email read more
