Two Peruvian women diagnosed with COVID-19 give birth to healthy babies: Doctor

first_imgTopics : Two pregnant women diagnosed with the new coronavirus in Peru have given birth to babies who have tested negative for the disease, a hospital in the capital Lima said on Tuesday.The first of the children was born on March 27 and the second on March 31, both through cesarean sections on the advice of doctors to avoid complications, the Rebagliati Hospital in Lima reported.”Fortunately, there has been no vertical transmission, that means that there has been no contagion from mothers to newborns,” said Carlos Albretch, a doctor in the family unit of the hospital, which is run by state-owned Essalud. He added that both mothers were in good health, although still receiving treatment for the coronavirus.Medics in the Chinese city of Wuhan, where the outbreak originated, raised concerns at the start of February about potential transmission of the virus by mothers to unborn children after at least one case of a baby born with symptoms.However, a study of nine pregnant women in China who had tested positive for the virus, published in the Lancet in mid-February, reported that there was “no reliable evidence as yet available to support the possibility of vertical transmission of COVID-19 infection from the mother to the baby.”The World Health Organization has said that new mothers who have tested positive for the virus should be encouraged to care for and breastfeed their newborns as normal, provided they maintain stringent hygiene.center_img Albretch said the women would be supported to stay with their babies.”This is a new pandemic, we have no experience,” he said. “China and Italy have some publications that give some breastfeeding recommendations. Transmission through breast milk has not been demonstrated.”He said for women with more severe COVID-19 symptoms, the guidance could be different. “In this case the newborns would have to be separated from the mother,” he said.The Rebagliati Hospital added in a statement it had conducted a second swab test on the newborns and was awaiting the results.Peru has so far had 2,954 confirmed cases of the virus and 107 deaths, while 1,301 people recovered.last_img read more

MADD: Celebrate and Designate

first_imgDallas, Tx. — This Fourth of July holiday, Mothers Against Drunk Driving® (MADD) urges everyone to celebrate safely by planning ahead and designating a non-drinking driver if plans include alcohol. Backyard barbecues, fireworks displays and other festivities surrounding the Fourth of July holiday often include drinking, making it one of the deadliest holidays of the year.Last year, from 6 p.m. July 1 to 5:59 a.m. July 5, 188 Americans were killed in crashes involving drunk drivers. During that timeframe, drunk driving deaths accounted for 41 percent of all fatalities on U.S. roadways.“As we take time to celebrate our nation’s independence, everyone must take personal responsibility to keep this holiday happy and joyous. All too often, celebrations become tragedies because of one person’s careless and deadly decision to drink and drive,” said MADD National President Colleen Sheehey-Church.  “Designate a non-drinking driver, if you plan to drink alcohol.”MADD is proud to work with National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to remind the public that if you choose to drink and drive you will get caught. MADD supports NHTSA’s campaign, “Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving” and is grateful to law enforcement for their increased presence by conducting additional sobriety checkpoints to remove drunk drivers from our roads.Sobriety checkpoints are extremely effective in preventing drunk driving deaths and injuries and can reduce alcohol-related crashes and fatalities by 18 to 24 percent. MADD always supports law enforcement during these high-visibility enforcement events and urges everyone to show their support for this proven countermeasure in their state.Drunk driving is not only dangerous, it is expensive. When caught, drunk driving can cost an offender thousands of dollars. According to NHTSA, a DUI arrest could cost up to $10,000, not to mention the loss of vehicle and driving privileges. The driver also could face jail time, higher insurance rates and expenses from attorney fees, fines, car towing, repairs and lost time at work.  Most importantly, they can kill others including family members.Drunk driving remains the leading killer on our roads, yet these senseless deaths are 100 percent preventable, 100 percent of the time. MADD’s Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving is helping create a future with No More Victims®. The campaign includes advocacy for stronger drunk driving laws including all-offender ignition interlocks, support for high-visibility law enforcement, support for advanced vehicle technologies and public support for these initiatives.MADD reminds everyone to take personal responsibility by using taxis, public transportation, rideshare services or calling a non-drinking friend if their plans include alcohol this Independence Day and every day.last_img read more

Slaven Bilic lauds “brilliant” Jose Mourinho ahead of West Ham v Chelsea

first_imgSlaven Bilic insists Jose Mourinho is still the best manager around. Press Association But as the Hammers prepare to host Mourinho’s men on Saturday, Bilic is backing his opposite number to guide them back into the top four this season. “It’s a big challenge for us, it’s a big test,” the Croatian said. “It’s a special game because they are the champions. “And you can easily say he is the best manager around. He’s been doing it all his career, he’s brilliant. He’s Jose Mourinho! “It just shows how strange football is. It’s the same team, the champions. “I know Mourinho and he’s always motivated. His teams are always hungry and everyone expected them, maybe not to be top after nine games, but not to be where they are now. “But sometimes in football it happens. I watched most of their games. “Sometimes you play the same way but you hit the post and the opposition don’t hit the post, when last year it happened the other way round. “It doesn’t have to be anything major. You lose a couple of games – and from their point of view drawing is like losing – and suddenly people say ‘what happened to Chelsea?’ but it’s nothing big or major. The Portuguese finds himself under scrutiny following Chelsea’s poor start to the season, with the reigning champions down in 12th place after just three wins from their opening nine games. West Ham, by contrast, are flying high in fourth spot after a sparkling start to Bilic’s reign at Upton Park. “If it was he would be the first to change it, but sometimes it’s those invisible things you can’t detect and you have to work hard to try to change it. “Things will definitely change for them, we just hope it won’t be against us. I see them finishing in the top four.” West Ham will be without winger Victor Moses under the terms of his loan deal from Stamford Bridge, while defender Winston Reid has yet to shake off the knock which kept him out at Crystal Palace last week. last_img read more

Bournemouth return to form with easy win over Norwich

first_img Dan Gosling opened the scoring for the home side with 10 minutes gone before Charlie Daniels converted from the spot shortly after half-time. Benik Afobe, Bournemouth’s record signing, then opened his account for the club following a cool finish with 15 minutes remaining. Bournemouth recorded the biggest win of their short Barclays Premier League tenure after cruising to a 3-0 victory against Norwich. Daniels, a constant threat down Bournemouth’s left flank, was allowed to drift into the Norwich penalty area and appeared to be grappled to the floor by Russell Martin. The Canaries defender protested his innocence and referee Robert Madley waved away the home side’s appeals. Madley was back in the spotlight moments before the interval when Rudd scythed down Afobe on the edge of his own box. Harry Arter played Afobe through, and in attempting to clear the ball, Rudd took a wild swing with his right foot, before missing the ball and taking the former Wolves and Arsenal striker down with him. The home crowd chanted for a red card, but Rudd, with Sebastien Bassong and Ryan Bennett in close proximity, was shown only a yellow. Moments after the re-start and it was Madley who was once more the focus of the home support after Arter fell in the Norwich penalty area. Madley turned down his appeals and the Cherries midfielder was booked for his protests. Bournemouth, however, remained in the ascendancy and after Pugh’s header was cleared off the line by Martin, Bournemouth were finally awarded a spot-kick. Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe pulled back Pugh, and Madley had no hesitation in pointing to the penalty spot. Daniels stepped up to double Bournemouth’s advantage and it was no less than Howe’s side deserved. Afobe, in only his second appearance for Bournemouth, then completed the victory when he tapped home a fine cross from Daniels. The result takes Howe’s men above Norwich into 15th in the table with the Canaries now one point and one place below them. TWEET OF THE MATCH “Great win, fully deserved. Congrats bro on your first of many @Afobe_” – injured Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings RATINGS BOURNEMOUTH Artur Boruc 7 Simon Francis 7 Steve Cook 7 Charlie Daniels 9 Dan Gosling 8 Andrew Surman 7 Marc Pugh 7 Harry Arter 8 Adam Smith 7 Junior Stanislas 7 Benik Afobe 8 Subs: Eunan O’Kane 5 Glenn Murray 5 Yann Kermorgant 5 NORWICH Declan Rudd 5 Ryan Bennett 5 Russell Martin 5 Sebastien Bassong 4 Jonny Howson 5 Alex Tettey 5 Wes Hoolahan 5 Matt Jarvis 5 Robbie Brady 5 Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe 4 Dieumerci Mbokani 5 Subs: Cameron Jerome 5 Nathan Redmond 5 Graham Dorrans 5 STAR PLAYER Charlie Daniels – Turned in an impressive display for Bournemouth as he bombed up and down the left flank. He scored from the penalty spot and then assisted Benik Afobe for his first goal for the club with a fine cross. MOMENT OF THE MATCH Norwich manager Alex Neil turning the air blue with an array of expletives after Sebastien Bassong asked for someone to fetch his gloves moments after the kick-off. Neil did not look impressed with Bassong’s request, but the Cameroon defender got his wish. VIEW FROM THE BENCH That was Norwich’s third defeat in as many games and Neil cut a frustrated figure in the away dugout. In contrast, Eddie Howe will be delighted with his side’s response from their second-half horror show against West Ham only five days ago. MOAN OF THE MATCH How was Declan Rudd not sent off for his foul on Afobe? The Norwich goalkeeper scythed down Bournemouth’s new signing with a horror challenge, but was only booked. Not referee Robert Madley’s finest afternoon. NEXT UP Sunderland v Bournemouth (Barclays Premier League, January 23) Norwich v Liverpool (Barclays Premier League, January 23) Both sides made one change from their midweek defeats. Bournemouth midfielder Marc Pugh came in for the injured Matt Ritchie while Gary O’Neill, sent off against Stoke, was replaced by Matt Jarvis. Lewis Grabban had been expected to feature against his former club but the forward, who re-signed for the Cherries in a £7million deal earlier this month, was said to be suffering from an illness. Bournemouth may have suffered a 3-1 home defeat against West Ham on Tuesday night, but there was no sign of any hangover for Howe’s side. Indeed it was the south coast club – on a winless run of four matches heading into Saturday’s fixture – who came flying out of the blocks. Afobe fizzed a 20-yard effort over Declan Rudd’s bar with only two minutes gone, before Junior Stanislas’ deflected shot then fell into the hands of the grateful Norwich goalkeeper. Bournemouth have gained a reputation as fast-starters – having scored six goals inside the opening 15 minutes which is more than any other Premier League club – and with 10 minutes on the clock they increased that tally to seven. Gosling ghosted unmarked into the Norwich area before Marc Pugh’s pinpoint cross was headed home by the former Everton midfielder. It was Gosling’s third league goal of the campaign and no less than the home side deserved for their early endeavour. Gosling’s curling left-footed effort then went narrowly wide of Rudd’s right post before Bournemouth probably should have been given the chance to extend their lead from 12 yards.

Haden does not control his legacy

first_imgWhen Steve Sarkisian was let go by Pat Haden this fall, the pressure and criticism could not have been higher on the Athletic Director. In the most embarrassing and public way possible, Haden’s hire for the football program had failed. In his only other big-name decision, Haden looked even worse in the basketball department, where head coach Andy Enfield and the Trojan men’s program had only put together a few conference wins in the two seasons since Enfield was brought in. With multiple strikes at the time, it was not just Sarkisian, but also Haden who was being called on to resign by some critics.But as Haden watched the men’s basketball team demolish UCLA for the second time this season last Thursday, he knew his doubters would be silenced for at least a little bit.  For Haden personally, he knows now that he has in fact left this University’s athletic department in a better position than when he took it over, and he is ready to hand it off.As we look back on his legacy, there are of course mistakes and decisions he would probably want to correct with 20–20 hindsight. Of course, his defining decision, his last decision, the hiring of Clay Helton as the permanent football program will really define his legacy as an athletic director. But the resurgence of the men’s basketball program in the months after all of the controversy surrounding the football team proves that Haden has done at least one big thing right. As we look back on his legacy, we should appreciate the challenge he faced and the patience it takes to reestablish an athletic program.How Haden dealt with — and eventually fired — Lane Kiffin is arguably an even more interesting saga than Sarkisian. During the heyday of the Pete Carroll era, while Carroll brought in an NFL level defensive mentality, the Trojans also were dominating on the offensive end with two different Heisman Trophy winners and lots and lots of points.Kiffin was the offensive mastermind behind that, and left the Trojans to make the jump straight into a head coaching position in the NFL with the Oakland Raiders. Though his stint in Oakland as a head coach was not terrifically inspiring, and very brief, as was his stint in between as the Tennessee head coach, there was certainly reason to believe that he had potential as an elite head coach. And as he’s proven again in Alabama as the Crimson Tide’s, he can be and still is very much an elite offensive coordinator. But he just did not have what it took to be a head coach. There was that fantastic 10–2 season with Kiffin back in the 2011 season. But that proved to be more of a fluke than anything else, and the Trojans need something more consistent as a program head going forward.As has been discussed plenty of times in this publication, the hire of Sarkisian should have been vetted more. Yes, he had personal issues develop after his hire, but there was writing on the wall from his previous stint in Washington. He had one epic recruiting class, one which the current program will reap the benefits from for another couple of seasons. But Haden was slightly too caught up in nostalgia for the Carroll era when he decided to hire another Carroll disciple.  It was time for USC to break away from that.But in Enfield, Haden found someone that encapsulates the best of what Sarkisian and Kiffin had to offer. Enfield has enough strategic knowledge of the offensive game to make the Trojans into a successful team, like Kiffin did as a coordinator. The Slam City mindset that Enfield brings to the table on offense is not just fun and exciting to watch, but is the spread offense equivalent in basketball. Finally, in his third season, we’ve seen that he knows how to effectively implement the system and turn USC into an offensive threat.But he also can recruit like Sarkisian. The influx of talent on the men’s team with guys like Julian Jacobs and Jordan McLaughlin is the other key reason why USC is becoming a top 25 national program.Again, the key to Haden’s legacy will be the result of the Helton hire more so than the Enfield hire. But there’s a lot of similarities between Helton and Enfield. Helton may not be a mastermind on offense, or the world’s greatest salesman, but he has the personality that just makes people want to play for him. And when you look at Enfield, that’s essentially what he brings to the sideline. If football can keep the momentum that basketball started, Haden will have plenty to cheer for as he makes the transition to a full-time fan.Luke Holthouse is a junior majoring in policy, planning and development and print and digital journalism.Correction: A previous version of this column stated that Athletic Director Pat Haden was responsible for the hiring of former head football coach Lane Kiffin. Kiffin was hired by former Athletic Director Mike Garrett. The Daily Trojan regrets the error.last_img read more
