first_imgMore than 50,000 Indonesians will worry less than the rest of us about COVID-19, because they have already contracted and recovered from the disease. While the numbers of infections and deaths keep rising as the pandemic shows no signs of letting up, so too does the number of people who have coveted antibodies.As of Thursday, 55.7 percent of all Indonesians confirmed as COVID-19 positive have been cleared of the infection, according to National COVID-19 task force spokesperson Wiku Adisasmito.That figure is up from fewer than 4 percent in March, as the recovery process typically takes several weeks. The task force also reported that the national fatality rate had gradually decreased, while the absolute number of daily deaths was fluctuating.At first, the average COVID-19 death rate in the country was 4.89 percent in March and it increased to 8.64 percent in April, Wiku said. However, it began to decline to 7.66 percent in May and to 5.56 percent in June.The highest maximum death rate within a month was reported in April with 9.5 percent. In July, the maximum death rate decreased to 5.08 percent, while the average death rate was 4.86 percent. “We are close to the world’s average death rate, which is 4.2 percent,” said Wiku.As of Friday, the official COVID-19 death toll made public by the government stands at 4,665 after the Health Ministry reported 89 new deaths.Read also: Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine to undergo Phase III clinical trials in BandungWiku said the declining death rate was made possible by better COVID-19 case management in hospitals and more health workers having adequate knowledge of COVID-19 handling.Indonesia now has 23,519 isolation rooms and 188,510 isolation beds in 839 COVID-19 referral hospitals across the country, according to the task force’s data.Despite what the government described as encouraging developments regarding the COVID-19 situation, Wiku asserted that the public should remain disciplined by complying with health protocols.“Let’s remind each other to wear masks and wash our hands regularly. COVID-19 cases are still found in public places, tourist attractions and other places where crowds are present,” he said.Topics : “We must be optimistic but remain vigilant. If patients under self-isolation see their condition worsen, they should immediately go to the hospital before it’s too late,” Wiku said in a press briefing on Friday.The daily number of recovered patients saw increasing trend over nearly the past two weeks. For instance, Wiku said, the government’s data recorded 878 new recoveries on July 10 and the number had increased to 1,909 on July 23. The highest one-day increase was recorded on July 19 when 2,133 patients were declared to have recovered.The official tally of COVID-19 infections in the country stands at 95,418 cases as of Friday, with the government reporting 1,781 new recoveries, bringing the total of recovered patients to 53,945.Read also: MPR speaker worries as govt stops broadcasting daily virus updateslast_img read more

first_imgRelatedPosts Rohr lists Musa, Ekong, 23 others for Cote d’Ivoire, Tunisia friendlies Joe Aribo vows to bounce back from injury Joe Aribo out of Super Eagles friendlies Nigeria boss Gernot Rohr has piled praise on Rangers star Joe Aribo after his international debut. The midfielder scored the opening goal of the game just three minutes into his first appearance to the delight of Bordeaux legend Rohr. Aribo still has to play a competitive game for Nigeria before he’s officially tied to the African nation, but that is likely to come in November when they take on Benin in an African Cup of Nations qualifier. And Rohr is clearly a big fan of his after giving the 23-year-old his maiden call up just weeks after he made the move from Charlton to Rangers. It was an unusual team for Nigeria but Rohr was delighted with how they performed, and in particular Aribo. “And our strikers with the quickness, our wingers, our midfield and even behind. You know that eight players from the AFCON were not here and we had to replace them. “This team is the youngest one I’ve ever coached in Nigeria. The average age is not even 23, it is 22.8 from the starting team. There was big satisfaction against one of the best teams in Europe. “They lead their qualification group and have some world champions from the U20 World Cup in the list for the match. “It was a very interesting game for us and I hope that the team will still progress.” Aribo has impressed for Steven Gerrard’s side since making the move to Glasgow and played a huge part in two of the three goals against Livingston on Saturday. He made the run across the front post to catch out Ross Stewart and allow James Tavernier’s free kick to go straight in before his flicked header set up Alfredo Morelos for the second goal.Tags: BordeauxGernot RohrJoe AriboRangers FClast_img read more

first_imgIn addition to the fact that it was spring break and I had finally found some leisure time after a stressful two weeks of midterms, as a sports fan, this past weekend was one of my favorites of 2015 so far. March Madness began on Tuesday and did not disappoint.As a Trojan, I’m proud of the Pac-12 going undefeated in the first round and three  Pac-12 teams reaching the Sweet 16, even if one of those teams is UCLA. Despite some amazing upsets, my bracket is still in really good shape, so I can’t complain.One upset was so touching that I can’t even be disappointed that I had Baylor in my Sweet 16. I don’t think I’m alone when I say that coach Ron Hunter and the Georgia State Panthers captured my heart and became my favorite underdog. After the first round upset over Baylor, I was hoping Georgia State would win the whole tournament. Unfortunately, their run was cut short by Xavier in the Round of 32, but I think the Panthers will be my favorite part of the 2015 tournament.Hunter caught America’s attention when he tore his Achilles tendon while celebrating his team’s win over Georgia Southern in the Sun Belt Conference championship game to earn a spot in the NCAA tournament. That 38-36 win was decided by free throws made by Hunter’s son, guard R.J., with 21.6 seconds left in the game.As if anyone needed another reason to root for the Panthers, Kevin Ware, a former Louisville Cardinal who snapped his leg in the Final Four game, en route to Louisville’s 2013 championship win, scored a team-high 18 points in Georgia State’s win over Georgia Southern and earned his return to the tournament.Their conference win was enough to earn them an automatic tournament bid, but it stacked the odds against them as they were a 14-seed scheduled to open the tournament against third-seeded Baylor. The moment I fell in love with the Hunters and Georgia State was R.J.’s 3-point buzzer beater that lifted Georgia State over Baylor and sent his dad to the floor. Ron’s famous fall and the emotional celebration with his son had me in tears, and the interviews that came in the following day were just as touching and funny.Following their loss to Xavier, the Hunters again caused the waterworks as Ron celebrated his team as the head coach of Georgia State and celebrated his son as a proud father. What makes this story even better is that it isn’t a fluke and it didn’t happen by a stroke of luck. R.J. is NBA material who was able to use his March Madness fame to capitalize on his potential and increase his draft stock.According to nbadraft.net, Hunter is the 33rd overall prospect and is ranked at 27 by Draft Express. This isn’t anything new, however, as Kevin Durant tweeted his praise of Hunter last June after Hunter’s excellent performance at LeBron James’ Skills Academy, an exclusive camp held for the top college and high school players.Hunter almost left after his sophomore season, frustrated with his struggling squad. He came back to play for his dad another year and it was certainly a season to remember. R.J. has a difficult decision ahead: to return for his senior season or to declare for the NBA draft.When asked whether his son was coming back, Ron said he’d love to coach him another year, but they’d ultimately have to think it over. It would make a lot of sense for Hunter to declare for the draft, as his exposure will likely never be this high again, especially at a lesser-known school like Georgia State.Whatever they decide, I hope we see a lot more of the Hunters. I hope Ron and the Panthers become familiar faces in the tournament, and I hope that R.J. has a long and successful NBA career.last_img read more
