French national found dead on Bali sidewalk tests positive for COVID-19

ptyinxgte

first_imgBalinese authorities have confirmed that a French national who died on the resort island six days ago tested positive for COVID-19 post-mortem.His body was found on top of a motorcycle on a sidewalk on Jl. Imam Bonjol in Denpasar on Sunday.  “It was the foreign national who was found on Jl. Imam Bonjol,” Sanglah Hospital official I Ketut Sudartana told The Jakarta Post on Saturday . “It was confirmed after a PCR [polymerase chain reaction] test that he was coronavirus-positive.” It was initially thought that the 72-year-man had a seizure and died of a heart attack. His body was recovered by medical workers wearing hazmat suits. “We are now communicating with the [French] consulate general regarding his cremation,” the head of Bali’s COVID-19 taskforce, Dewa Made Indra, said, adding that the consulate would contact his family.Reports of the circumstances of the French national’s death came amid concerns that Bali has been underreporting COVID-19 cases. As of Friday, Bali reported only four confirmed cases, none of which were cases of local transmission, officials said. The first case was a British national who died at Sanglah Hospital. Like the French national, she was confirmed to have had the coronavirus after her death. The other two cases are Balinese residents who returned from Italy and Jakarta, two regions that are struggling to contain the virus. Experts have said that the low number of cases was “scientifically odd”.   Bali has been hit hard by the global pandemic, which has hurt global tourism. However, the resort island only decided to close its tourist sites yesterday after an instruction from the central government. It also decided to limit congregational rituals for Nyepi (Day of Silence). (mfp)Editor’s note: The article has been updated to correct the attribution of the first direct quote.

ptyinxgte

first_img Chukwu-Ndukwe speaking in a chat with brila.net, he said the national team will be better for all of his performance at the club level considering the resurgence of Kelechi Iheanacho at Leicester city. “For Lille he is playing regularly, he just have to keep his focus, work hard and get ready. “There is competition in the national team and that is good for the national team. “We have a lot of strikers now who are also fighting to get a shirt into the team. So everybody has to work hard to be able to represent Nigeria.Advertisement Former Nigeria international, Raphael Chukwu Ndukwe has urged Lille metropole Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen to be up-and-doing and continue to work hard after hitting his 13th ligue un goal in Lille’s 1-2 home loss to Olympic Marseille. Meanwhile, Vincent Enyeama has described Osimhen’s Lille goal in Sunday’s 2-1 defeat to Olympique Marseille as at a “very high level”. The 21-year-old controlled a defence-splitting pass from Jonathan Bamba to beat a stuck Steve Mandanda for the Great Danes’ goal. However, a change of fortune saw Andre Villas-Boas’ men seal maximum points following Reinildo Mandava’s own goal and Dario Benedetto’s effort.

ptyinxgte

first_imgGreensburg, IN —Greensburg Community Schools administrators have updated the Graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020. After two rescheduled dates, the ceremony was pushed back to this Saturday, July 18 at 9 am. After Wednesday’s announcement from Governor Eric Holcomb, the school made the decision to close the ceremony to the students only, and show it virtually through several different avenues for family, staff, and others to watch. The Class of 2020 has 167 students, which makes it impossible to allow each to have even one guest and be under 250 people.Several parents and family members called in complaints about not being able to watch the event in-person and made suggestions that instead of hosting the event indoors, as it is historically in the gymnasium, but to host it at the GCHS Football Complex. The GCSC administration has been working with the local health department to coordinate the event outdoors. The graduating students are encouraged to wear a mask that is provided by the school and those in attendance are also encouraged to wear a mask. Also as seating is limited in the bleachers, it is suggested to bring a chair.last_img read more

Badgers take Terriers for a walk

ptyinxgte

first_imgSophomore guard Josh Gasser scored 16 of Wisconsin’s 69 points Saturday night against Wofford. Gasser deftly hit five of six shots, including all four from the perimeter.[/media-credit]It took a little while to warm up, but the No. 13 Wisconsin men’s basketball team dished out a 69-33 home victory over Wofford Saturday night with half of the team’s shots falling on target.Sophomore guard Josh Gasser led all scorers with 16 points, hitting five of six shots from the field and all four attempts from beyond the arc. Gasser also added five rebounds and two assists.Forwards Jared Berggren and Ryan Evans backed up the guard’s play with 13 points apiece, a career high for Berggren, who pitched in seven rebounds on the night while Evans chipped in six along with five assists. Both converted six of 12 shots from the field.The Badgers (3-0) started the night off slow, scoring just 13 points after 10 minutes while the Terriers (1-2) came within three points after Karl Cochran hit a three-pointer just after the 10-minute mark.Gasser then replied with a three-pointer of his own, beginning a 19-0 run that lasted until just before the break. Wisconsin missed its next four shots but went on to hit six of the following 10, with three-pointers coming from Rob Wilson (seven points) and Jordan Taylor (four points, four assists).However, the real story of the run, which lasted over nine minutes, was Wisconsin’s defense. Berggren and Gasser combined for one block and two steals over that period while Evans swatted away three shots himself. Meanwhile, Wofford was limited to two offensive boards.“I think [the run] started with defense, we got going on defense,” Evans said. “I dove for one, Jared dove for one, so that was huge defensively. And having a guy like Josh, being able to knock down shots, I think he gave me two assists on that run, so that makes it pretty easy for me.”“And a guy like Jordan Taylor, someone who’s really just distributing right now, instilling confidence in all of us, I really commend him for that … He’s just playing real team ball right now.”Wisconsin entered the locker room at halftime with a 32-12 lead from which Wofford would not recover. The Badgers shot 43.3 percent from the field in the first period and upped that clip to an even 50 percent when all was said and done. About 39 percent of Wisconsin’s tries from the perimeter had their desired effect as well.The Terriers, meanwhile, shot 26.5 percent and 21.1 from the arc on the night, despite engineering good looks on offense and capping its turnover count at nine.Ultimately, though, Wofford just couldn’t keep up with Wisconsin.“I’ll tell you what this team does that turns you inside-out is they really shoot the basketball,” Wofford head coach Mike Young said. “Berggren, Bruesewitz; Evans stepped back there and made a three, and then Brust, and then on and on. That’s really, really hard.“Credit to the Badgers, they were that much better tonight than we were.”Leading the way for Terriers Saturday were guards Kevin Giltner and Cochran, who each scored 10 points on a combined 8-of-20 shooting.Wofford was held to just 12 points in the paint and earned only nine shots from the free throw line – all of which came in the second half. Wisconsin also doubled up on Wofford in the rebound battle, winning 43-22.Wisconsin head coach Bo Ryan came away impressed with the success his players had against Wofford’s inside game.“I was pleased with about 85 percent of the defense on how we handled their screens and some of the looks they were trying to get with the post because they hurt a lot of teams inside; tall teams, short teams,” he said. “They had some pretty good action on their inside game and I thought Jared did an excellent job. Frank (Kaminsky), as a freshman, showed he was a freshman a couple times but that’s how you learn.”last_img read more
