first_imgMay 14, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – Indonesia’s health ministry reported today that a 26-year-old pregnant woman who died 2 days ago tested positive for H5N1 avian flu, making her the country’s second fatality in as many weeks.The woman, who was 4 months pregnant, died at a hospital in Medan in North Sumatra, a health ministry official identified as Joko told Agence France Presse (AFP).Her death brings Indonesia’s fatality count to 76, Joko told AFP. From Indonesia’s recent reports, the total number of H5N1 cases appears to be 96, including the 26-year-old woman and a 29-year-old woman who died May 3, also at a hospital in Medan.The World Health Organization (WHO) has not included any Indonesian cases in its H5N1 count since the country stopped sharing H5N1 virus samples with the agency at the end of 2006. The WHO lists 81 cases with 63 deaths for Indonesia, out of a global total of 291 cases with 172 deaths; Indonesia leads the world in the number of deaths.The health ministry confirmed the woman’s case after a second set of tests came back positive for the H5N1 virus, AFP reported.The patient, who was thought to have eaten chickens that died of avian flu, became ill on May 2 and was treated at home before she was transferred to two different hospitals, the AFP report said.Twenty other patients are undergoing treatment for suspected H5N1 infections at various hospitals in Indonesia, Joko told AFP.In other avian flu news, animal-health officials in Bangladesh yesterday reported more H5N1 outbreaks in poultry, this time in a village near Nilphamari, about 250 miles northwest of Dhaka, the capital, Reuters reported today. The fresh outbreaks at small farms prompted villagers to cull about 15,000 chickens over the last few days, the report said.M. M. Kahn, a technical adviser to the Bangladesh Poultry Association, told AFP 2 days ago that the avian flu situation in poultry was “very grave” because some farmers were not reporting outbreaks or were trying to cover them up.”The flu is no longer confined to farms. Recently it infected domestic birds and fowls and there’s a real danger it could infect humans” in the heavily populated country, Khan told AFP.Government spokesman Abdul Motalib said the situation was not yet grave, but he acknowledged the nation was having trouble combating the outbreaks because of limited resources and staffing, the AFP report said.Bangladesh reported its first H5N1 outbreak in poultry in late March. Since then, Motalib said, H5N1 has hit 40 farms in 11 districts and has led to the culling of 151,000 birds, AFP reported.Meanwhile, officials across the border in India said today that dead poultry and ducks in two Indian states have tested negative for avian flu, Reuters reported. One of the farms that reported poultry deaths was in the eastern state of West Bengal in the village of Matigara, which borders Bangladesh.Upma Chawdhry, an official with India’s animal husbandry department, told Reuters that countrywide monitoring was continuing, with a focus on areas bordering countries that have reported poultry outbreaks.In Vietnam, a veterinary official from Nghe An, the central province where H5N1 virus resurfaced in poultry in early May, reported a new flu outbreak yesterday, the Chinese news agency Xinhua reported. About 1,900 ducks from three households were found dead on May 9, an animal-health official who requested anonymity told Xinhua. Samples from the dead birds tested positive for an H5 virus, the source said.Vietnam experienced a rash of outbreaks in December and January in several Mekong Delta and central provinces, according to the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE).Vietnam has had 93 human H5N1 cases and 42 deaths, but no human cases have been reported since November 2005, according to the World Health Organization.See also:OIE reports on 2007 Vietnamese poultry outbreakslast_img read more

first_imgBANGALORE, India (CMC):West Indies will look to separate themselves from the crowd while taking a giant step towards the next round when they clash with Sri Lanka in their second game of the Twenty20 World Cup today. The match starts at 9 a.m. Jamaica time.They lead Group 1 following their convincing six-wicket victory over England in Mumbai last Wednesday, but are on two points along with Sri Lanka and England, who are second and third, respectively, based on net run rate.However, fully aware that another win would put the Caribbean side further out front, captain Darren Sammy said there would be no letting up in the intensity with which they planned to approach the contest at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.”Tomorrow’s game becomes very, very important for us especially with the way the group is turning out,” Sammy warned.”Before we came here, when we looked at the schedule, the coach did mention that every game should be played like a final, and tomorrow’s no different. We have played Sri Lanka in a final before, we lost to them twice in the semis, so it is very important in the context of how the group is turning out.”Hopefully, we can keep on winning because that’s what we’re in the tournament here to do. Like I’ve said many times, once we do what we know we can do – and you saw it against England – [we will be successful].”West Indies are riding on the momentum from their emphatic win over England, when they chased down 183 to win with 11 balls to spare at the Wankhede Stadium.The victory was led by superstar opener Chris Gayle, who struck an unbeaten even century to become the first player to reach triple figures twice in T20 World Cup history.”Our bowlers did what we had to do and then our batters, led by Chris, chased it down very well. Today, another venue, good wicket, hopefully we can have another exciting match, but we come out victorious.”Today’s venue is the home of Indian Premier League side Royal Challengers Bangalore, whose batting is spearheaded by Gayle.last_img read more

OSU football coach Urban Meyer addresses the media at the 2014 Big Ten Media Days July 28 in Chicago. Meyer was involved with one of 22 self-reported NCAA violations by OSU in the first half of 2014.Credit: Tim Moody / Lantern sports editorOhio State coach Urban Meyer spoke on the weekly Big Ten teleconference Tuesday afternoon and discussed the Buckeyes’ upcoming matchup with Rutgers as well as select players who have made an impact on the 2014 season.Meyer said senior defensive lineman Michael Bennett has an “incredible future.” He added that Bennett could fall anywhere from a first round pick to a late round pick in the 2015 NFL draft depending on his performance.Meyer’s first comment about Rutgers was how impressed he is with its punt block team. He said he believes the Scarlet Knights are very aggressive and said they are one play from being undefeated.Meyer said Rutgers senior quarterback Gary Nova had “the day of days” in his last game against Michigan. Meyer added the Buckeyes began preparing for Nova and the Scarlet Knights during the bye week.He said sophomore defensive end Joey Bosa is a two-dimensional player in that he is skilled at pass rush and stopping the run. Meyer added that most players at that position are one dimensional.The coach said his offense has “seen almost every defense you could imagine,” and added that the offense will not get caught again like it did against Virginia Tech.Meyer said that while each offensive lineman has improved, redshirt-senior Darryl Baldwin stands out for his big improvements.He said that although the line has improved, it is still “concern No. 1,” moving forward.The Buckeyes are scheduled to take on the Scarlet Knights on Saturday at Ohio Stadium. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. read more

Malik Hooker talks to the media at Ohio State’s Pro Day on March 23, 2017 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. Credit: Screenshot Courtesy of Colin Hass-Hill | Assistant Sports DirectorAll 32 NFL teams were on hand at Ohio State’s Pro Day on Thursday at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center to watch the best athletes coach Urban Meyer’s program has to offer in the 2017 draft class.But the best athlete wasn’t even competing.Former OSU safety Malik Hooker was in the crowd of 122 NFL representatives that included seven general managers and nine head coaches. Dressed in a Michael Jordan “23” sweatshirt, Jordan brand shorts and shoes, the potential top-10 pick was talking with the NFL elites as he continues his recovery from his sports hernia and torn labrum surgeries in January.Because of his injuries, Hooker isn’t able to showcase his skills that he displayed in the 2016 season, when he broke a school record with three interceptions returned for touchdowns and recorded a total seven interceptions. Lucky enough for Hooker, his work on the gridiron doesn’t need to be supported by gaudy measurables at combines or pro days to earn consideration as a top pick.But that hasn’t stopped him from wishing he was performing for the teams who are interested in him.“Just being anxious to get back out there and show everybody that, like I said about Marshon (Lattimore), I am who I am on film,” Hooker said. “Ain’t no secrets about it. (I) feel like that’s just more so just wanting to compete again. I haven’t ran since the Clemson game in January, so just trying to get back in the mix of things.”Hooker said he has heard from nearly every NFL team, mostly discussing his injury, recovery and expected return time. For now, he said he’s ahead of schedule.The All-American safety said he has started to run in the pool and is roughly eight weeks away from being back to full-time football activities. He also posted a video on Twitter last week of him catching a ball while side-shuffling on a treadmill.pic.twitter.com/kPfDL9IGf5— Malik Hooker (@MalikHooker24) March 17, 2017“It’s more so just taking it step by step,” Hooker said. “I have to get my legs back under me and condition and stuff like that. It’s more so my body type of thing, waiting until my body feels like it’s ready to get back out there and compete.”As the process continues until the NFL draft on April 27, Hooker said his patience is being tested. Not being able to go in the NFL Combine, not participating in his pro day and having to watch his teammates perform in the pro day makes it that much more difficult for a competitor like Hooker to remain patient in his rehabilitation process.But he has found one thing to do in his spare time: sign a contract with the Jordan brand.Hooker told reporters that he signed with the brand last week, which is why he was dressed in apparel designed with the image of the NBA legend.“It’s definitely a great thing,” he said. “They don’t sign too many people. For me to be in that position to say that I signed with Jordan is definitely a blessing and a shocking thing for me.”Former Buckeye cornerback Marshon Lattimore has recently climbed draft boards, projected as high as No. 3 to the Chicago Bears by NFL.com’s Charley Casserly. If Hooker was able to run in the 40-yard dash, or perform in any of the drills, his stock might have risen as well.However, Hooker is still projected as a high first-round pick, likely in the top 10, and he said that worrying about his draft stock or where he will be selected takes away from the experience of preparing for the NFL.“There’s a lot of great DBs in this group for sure,” he said. “So for me to be rated as a top DB is definitely an unbelievable thing and a blessing.” read more
