H1N1 FLU BREAKING NEWS: Cases top 5,000; first cases in Cuba, Thailand, Finland; pregnancy risk; restocking stockpile; infected hospital workers

first_imgMay 12, 2009Global novel H1N1 flu cases surpass 5,000The global count of novel H1N1 influenza (swine flu) case confirmations has increased to 5,251 from 30 countries, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported today. The total includes 2,059 cases with 56 deaths in Mexico and 2,600 cases and 3 deaths reported in the United States as of yesterday. Canada has had 330 cases and 1 death, and Costa Rica has reported 8 cases and 1 death.[WHO update 26]US H1N1 cases top 3,000The number of confirmed H1N1 cases in the United States rose to 3,009 and 3 deaths in 45 states today, an increase of 409 since yesterday’s update, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported today. The number of states reporting cases rose by one, as Montana reported its first case. Yesterday CDC official Anne Schuchat, MD, said at a press briefing that many states don’t report flu cases over the weekend, so the agency expected a big increase in the H1N1 count today.[Current CDC numbers]Cuba confirms first H1N1 case, accuses Mexico of hiding outbreakCuba’s health ministry yesterday announced the nation’s first novel H1N1 case, in a Mexican medical student who was studying at a clinic in Cuba and had recently returned from a visit to his home country, the Associated Press (AP) reported. A few hours later, Fidel Castro, Cuba’s former president, posted a column on the government’s Web site accusing Mexico of hiding the flu outbreak until after US President Obama’s visit in April.[May 11 AP story]Thailand, Finland report first novel flu casesTwo more countries—Thailand and Finland—confirmed their first novel H1N1 cases today, the Australian Associated Press (AAP) reported. Thailand reported two cases in people who had traveled to Mexico, and Finland also confirmed two, though few details were available. The four cases are not included in today’s WHO total.[May 12 AAP story]CDC warns about flu risk in pregnant womenAt a news briefing today, Dr. Anne Schuchat of the CDC warned that pregnant women are at increased risk for flu complications such as pneumonia, dehydration, and premature labor, especially with the novel H1N1 strain. She said the CDC is investigating 20 cases of the disease in pregnant women, a few of whom have had severe complications, and one fatality, a previously reported Texas woman. Schuchat urged prompt antiviral treatment for pregnant women.[May 12 CDC briefing transcript]Roche donation restocks WHO Tamiflu stockpileRoche, the maker of Tamiflu (oseltamivir), announced today that it is donating 5.65 million treatment courses to the WHO to replenish a 2-million-course regional outbreak stockpile and a 3-million-course rapid-response stockpile. The donation also establishes a pediatric stockpile of 650,000 courses. Production capacity will reach 110 million courses over the next 5 months and will amount to 36 million courses per month by the end of the year if needed.[May 12 Roche press release]Novel H1N1 infections reported in Toronto hospital workersFour workers at two Toronto hospitals, one of whom had contact with patients, have tested positive for the novel H1N1 flu, the Toronto Star reported today. Two of the employees were reportedly exposed to the virus in the community, and one of them passed it on to two coworkers. A hospital spokeswoman said so far no novel H1N1 infections have been reported in any patients that had contact with the sick staff members.[May 12 Toronto Star story]last_img read more

Gabriel Martinelli responds to glowing praise from Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp

first_imgArsenal youngster Gabriel Martinelli scored a first-half double against Liverpool (Picture: Getty)Gabriel Martinelli says he’s ‘very proud’ after Jurgen Klopp labelled him the ‘talent of the century’ following Arsenal’s Carabao Cup clash with Liverpool.Liverpool beat Arsenal on penalties in a thrilling contest back in October to book their place in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals – where they were knocked out by Aston Villa – but Martinelli was arguably the best player on the pitch at Anfield.The 18-year-old forward netted his six and seventh goals of the season that night to further underline his phenomenal potential in what has been an outstanding debut campaign in England.Three months on, Martinelli has now racked up ten goals in all competitions and nailed down his place in Mikel Arteta’s first-team plans.ADVERTISEMENT Metro Sport ReporterSaturday 8 Feb 2020 1:34 pmShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link7.2kShares Comment Gabriel Martinelli responds to glowing praise from Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp Martinelli and Mari are currently at Arsenal’s warm-weather training camp in Dubai (Picture: Getty)January signing Pablo Mari has backed Martinelli to become a ‘top player’ if he keeps working hard to make the most out of his ‘incredible talent’.‘Martinelli has shown he is a bit different to any other player in terms of his ability,’ the Spanish defender told Arsenal’s official website.‘He has great vision and there’s real talent there in terms of his dribbling and his ability to choose the right play. His decision-making is improving all the time.‘Martinelli still has a lot more to show but he has incredible talent and I think gradually he’ll keep developing and become a top player.’More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityMari added: ‘He has exploded on to the scene and is showing that he’s a great player with a lot of talent.‘Obviously he’s still very young, but he’s already had a taste of playing at the top level and he’s doing very well.‘I’ll say congratulations when I meet him, but now he just needs to keep it up and work hard because he’s really talented.’MORE: Cristiano Ronaldo too old to sign for Bayern Munich, reveals club’s president Martinelli has scored ten goals in 21 appearances for Arsenal this term (Picture: Getty)Following Liverpool’s 5-5 (5-4) victory over the Gunners, Klopp hailed Sepp van den Berg before heaping praise on ‘incredible striker’ Martinelli.AdvertisementAdvertisement‘Van den Berg played an incredible game. That’s really difficult to deal with these guys,’ the German said.‘Martinelli’s pretty much the same age but he’s a talent of the century, he’s an incredible striker, so it’s really difficult.‘Then you have Mesut Ozil around and [Joe] Willock right, who scored by the way a really nice one.’center_img Klopp branded Martinelli the ‘talent of the century’ after Liverpool’s win (Picture: Getty)Though Martinelli is determined to keep his feet on the ground, he admits the praise he received from Klopp that night was particularly pleasing.‘I feel very proud that one of the best tacticians in the world speaks well of me,’ the teenager told Marca.‘Now I have to remain firm, focused and continue working to achieve greater things.’ Martinelli has rubbished rumours linking him with Madrid (Picture: Getty)In the same interview, Martinelli played down speculation linking him with a transfer move to Real Madrid.Asked whether he’s heard from the La Liga giants, he replied: ‘No, nothing has come to me.‘I am focused here doing my job at Arsenal and my head is here.’ Advertisement Advertisementlast_img read more

Amid fervor of season opener, Lakers’ Luke Walton stresses process

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersWith a team full of young stars looking to make an impact in the NBA, progress isn’t necessarily going to be judged in wins and losses, although everyone acknowledges some wins, after four seasons in which they won no more than 27 games, would be nice.“It’s the way we prep for practice,” Walton said. “It’s the way we work, preseason games, regular season games. We have to have that same type of mindset. Obviously, we hope that mindset is a little more intense tonight. We’re looking again to see carryover from what we do on the practice floor.”Video: Lakers react to blow out season-opening loss vs. ClippersEarlier in the week Walton said that on defense, the focal point of his training camp, the Lakers would sometimes be willing to sacrifice points for sticking to their principles. It’s a very un-sexy approach for a team that many in L.A. are dying to fall in love with.But even Walton couldn’t deny the excitement of turning the page to a new season and its first game.“You get butterflies when you wake up in the morning,” he said. “It’s a great day. How many jobs do you have as a grown up where you get that excited, you get butterflies going to work?“We get to get out there and compete on the big stage, so we’re excited about tonight.”RANDLE ON BENCHAmong the subplots of the buildup to Thursday’s opener was Walton’s starting lineup. A battle between Julius Randle and Larry Nance Jr. created intrigue in the frontcourt, the two-game suspension of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope created one more opening.In the end – well, really in the beginning – Walton went with Nance, who started the last three preseason games along Brook Lopez. Luol Deng, persona non grata a season ago, slid into the starting five.“The tricky part is finding who plays well together,” Walton said before the lineup was revealed. “It’s not just about getting the best players on the court and calling them your starting five.”Tell that to Julius Randle, who started 73 of 74 games last season, when he seemed firmly entrenched as a starter after bouncing in and out of then-coach Byron Scott’s preferred lineup in 2015-16. That year, Randle came off the bench 21 times.Walton did not sound like he was in a rush to give Randle another shot, either.“We have a lineup for now,” he said. “We’re going to keep evaluating as the season goes, but we’re not planning on changing but if changes need to happen then we make changes.”center_img LOS ANGELES — It was the most anticipated Lakers’ regular-season opener in recent memory, signaling the arrival of young stars and the hope they represented.Amid the fervor surrounding the new-look Lakers and especially rookie point guard Lonzo Ball, Coach Luke Walton continued to stress the sort of incremental progress that has defined his tenure, which on Thursday officially entered its second season when the Lakers faced the Clippers at Staples Center.Training camp was a week shorter than past seasons, part of the effort to lengthen the regular season.“We’re just getting better at the things we’ve been doing,” Walton said. “That’s why I keep talking about the journey that we’re on. Today’s obviously another step of that, but it’s just another day.”last_img read more
