first_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitter El Gobernador Wolf anuncia 10 sitios más de realización de pruebas en áreas con acceso limitado June 15, 2020center_img Español,  Press Release,  Public Health En el día de la fecha, el Gobernador Tom Wolf anunció que a partir del miércoles 17 de junio, se abrirán nueve sitios más que realizan pruebas de COVID-19 sin bajarse del automóvil en los estacionamientos de Walmart en todo el estado, lo que eleva a 19 el total de sitios en las ubicaciones de Walmart. Quest Diagnostics y Walmart están trabajando con el departamento para proporcionar pruebas sin costo a los residentes que viven en áreas donde hay menos sitios que realizan pruebas. También se ha sumado otro sitio de realización de pruebas en el condado de Venango, que previamente solo tenía un sitio, lo que eleva a 10 el total de nuevos sitios de realización de pruebas.“Continuamos agregando sitios que realizan pruebas en lugares que resulten convenientes a los residentes de Pennsylvania y aumentamos la capacidad del estado de realizar pruebas”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “No queremos que ningún residente de Pennsylvania que necesite una prueba tenga dificultades para encontrar un sitio cerca de su casa que realice pruebas gratuitas”.“Apreciamos el trabajo arduo que realizan los sistemas médicos, las farmacias, los Centros Médicos con Calificación Federal (FQHC, por sus siglas en inglés), las clínicas médicas y otras entidades que realizan pruebas de COVID-19 en todo Pennsylvania”, dijo la Secretaria de Salud, Dra. Rachel Levine. “Cuando establecimos nuestra estrategia de pruebas, queríamos que las pruebas fueran accesibles, adaptables y que estuvieran disponibles y estamos trabajando para cumplir ese desafío. Toda persona que crea que tenga síntomas de COVID-19 puede hacerse la prueba hoy en Pennsylvania”.A partir del 17 de junio, estos sitios estarán abiertos los lunes, miércoles y viernes de 7:00 a.m. a 9:00 a.m. para evaluar hasta 50 pacientes registrados cada día. Se requiere el registro con un día de anticipación. No se realizan pruebas de COVID-19 dentro de las tiendas Walmart o los Centros de servicios al paciente de Quest Diagnostics.Los sitios de realización de pruebas que abrirán el miércoles incluyen:Estacionamiento de Walmart Supercenter, 1887 Elmira St, Sayre, PAEstacionamiento de Walmart Supercenter, 1665 N Atherton St, State College, PAEstacionamiento de Walmart Supercenter, 108 Washington Towne Blvd N, Edinboro, PAEstacionamiento de Walmart Supercenter, 2501 W State St, New Castle, PAEstacionamiento de Walmart Supercenter, 1566 W Main Street Ext, Grove City, PAEstacionamiento de Walmart Supercenter, 9300 State Route 61, Coal Township, PAEstacionamiento de Walmart Supercenter, 980 N Susquehanna Trail, Selinsgrove, PAEstacionamiento de Walmart Supercenter, 120 AJK Blvd, Lewisburg, PAEstacionamiento de Walmart Supercenter, 1169 South Main St, Mansfield, PA“Luego de la prueba, tiene la obligación de regresar a casa y aislarse”, dijo la Dra. Levine. “Si los síntomas se presentan o agravan mientras espera los resultados de su prueba, hable con su médico. Si sufre una emergencia médica, busque atención inmediata”.Las personas que se registran serán notificadas de un sitio de prueba dentro de un radio de 50 millas de su vivienda y los horarios disponibles. Los pacientes agendarán un horario para las pruebas, imprimirán un comprobante y llevarán el comprobante al sitio al momento de realizarles las pruebas. Los pacientes recibirán un correo electrónico con los resultados de su prueba dentro de las 24-48 horas, y los médicos llamarán a los pacientes que tengan resultado positivo.Además de estos sitios de realización de pruebas, UPMC Northwest abrió un sitio que realiza pruebas de COVID-19 en el condado de Venango, donde actualmente solo hay otro sitio más. El nuevo sitio está ubicado en 1671 Allegheny Blvd, Reno, PA, y está abierto cada semana, de martes a viernes de 11:30 a.m. a 3:00 p.m., únicamente con cita previa. Para programar una visita en este lugar, llame al 1-833-559-7680.Las pruebas son accesibles para los residentes de Pennsylvania mediante el trabajo de varias entidades. Como Rite Aid, CVS, Patient First, Walmart y otros ofrecen pruebas para personas sintomáticas y asintomáticas, ha permitido además que los residentes de Pennsylvania se realicen las pruebas cerca de sus hogares. Agregar estos sitios a los que ya ofrecen los hospitales, sistemas médicos, FQHC, clínicas médicas y otras ubicaciones amplía significativamente la red de pruebas en el estado.Se puede encontrar más información sobre estos y otros sitios que realizan pruebas, incluido un mapa de los sitios disponibles en Pennsylvania, en el sitio de Internet del departamento.El plan de realización de pruebas del departamento sigue siendo adaptable. Esto incluye los esfuerzos para garantizar que todos aquellos en un centro de cuidado prolongado puedan realizarse la prueba, trabajar para garantizar que los condados que actualmente no tienen sitios que realicen las pruebas puedan realizarlas, y otros esfuerzos basados en la ciencia y en los datos más recientes relacionados con la COVID-19.Los síntomas de la COVID-19 pueden incluir:FiebreTosFalta de aliento o dificultad para respirarDiarreaEscalofríosTemblores recurrentes con escalofríosDolor muscularDolor de cabezaDolor de gargantaNueva pérdida del sabor u olfatoLos síntomas pueden aparecer en tan solo dos días o hasta 14 días luego de la exposición. Los casos de enfermedad reportados han variado desde personas que presentan pocos síntomas o ningún síntoma hasta personas gravemente enfermas y moribundas.Hasta las 12:00 a.m. del 14 de junio, se registraron 78,798 casos positivos de COVID-19 en todo el estado en 67 condados y un total de 6,215 muertes confirmadas. La mayoría de los pacientes hospitalizados tienen 65 años o más, y la mayoría de las muertes se han producido en pacientes de 65 años en adelante.

Women’s hockey: Badgers season ends at hands of Minnesota for second straight year

first_imgIt was a new year and a new venue, but that didn’t help the Wisconsin women’s hockey team get a different result at the Frozen Four.Facing arch rival Minnesota for the second straight year in the national semifinals, the Badgers (29-7-4) scored first, but then allowed three goals in the second period as they fell 3-1 to the top-seeded Gophers (33-3-4).Minnesota went on to the National Championship Sunday afternoon where it knocked off Harvard 4-1 to win its sixth national title.Just like last year’s Frozen Four semifinal, the Badgers held the lead over Minnesota, but gave up a few goals and let the chance to play in the National Championship game get away.“I told our team that we left everything on the ice,” Wisconsin head coach Mark Johnson said. “We had our opportunities, we didn’t capitalize on the opportunities that we had. It wasn’t due to a lack of effort or commitment. The team was happy with the way we played.”Wisconsin lost 5-3 to the Gophers in the same game a year ago, and this year it scored just five total goals in five losses to a team it hasn’t beaten since 2011.“The tough part is you come up short again, similar situation that we were in last year,” Johnson added. “You can taste the championship game and you’re one step away. It’s disappointing for anybody when it’s your last game and you don’t get to practice tomorrow and don’t get the opportunity to play Sunday afternoon.”Freshman Annie Pankowski lit the lamp under a minute into the second period when the puck slid to her after freshman Emily Clark won the faceoff. Pankowski put the puck top shelf past Gopher goaltender Amanda Leveille.Pankowski scored 42 points on the season to the lead Badgers. This was the first time a freshman has led Wisconsin in scoring since the 2003-04 season.The goal created some energy for the Badgers, but they were not able to find the back of the net again.Minnesota quickly answered with a goal halfway through the second period. The puck escaped from a scramble in front of the net, and Hannah Brandt stuffed a shot behind Wisconsin netminder Ann-Renee Desbiens at the 8:53 mark of the frame.“Their elite players, their go-to players always seem to come up big in the big moments,” Johnson said. “When they needed a boost in today’s game Hannah [Brandt] stepped up and scored and she set up a couple more plays. That’s why she’s so special to them, and that’s one of the reasons that for three years they’ve been pretty tough to defeat, especially for us.”Less than two minutes after the equalizer, the Maryanne Menefee scored her goal on a rebound to give Minnesota the lead for good.Minnesota finished off its second period flurry with the final goal of the game on a power play. Kelly Pannek grabbed a rebound and lit the lamp to give the nation’s best power-play an insurance tally against the nation’s best penalty kill in Wisconsin, which had only allowed four power-play tallies all year before that score.“After we scored and made it 1-0, we had some good shifts after that. They capitalized on a play and energized it and within two minutes they got a second goal, and then they capitalized on a power play later in the period,” Johnson said.Wisconsin and Minnesota both had 13 shots in the middle period, but the Gophers were the ones who took advantage of the potential scoring plays.“Again, the chances we had in the second period, two or three golden opportunities, even if you get one of those it might change the momentum of the game,” Johnson said. “Their goaltender was able to make the saves she needed to, they blocked the shots that they needed, and capitalized on the opportunities when we presented them.”The Gophers, who were playing on very familiar ice at Ridder Arena, were able to create energy in their home arena after the goals. That was something the Badgers could not do, despite outshooting Minnesota 35-23 on the night. But Leveille made 34 saves to keep the Gophers in the game and in control of it near the end.“All the credit in the world to that goalie; she played a great game, but her team played a great game in front of her,” Pankowski said. “It’s just the little bounces that didn’t go our way that could have changed the game. I think we had the opportunities, we just didn’t get our bounce.”In the other net, Wisconsin’s Desbiens finished with just 20 saves and had to make just three stops in the final period when UW outshot Minnesota 10-3. Coming into the game, the Badgers and Gophers were the top two in the country in shots on goal per game. However, UW held Minnesota to a season-low 23 shots. Desbiens, who had 14 shutouts this season, couldn’t stop the Gophers high-powered attack.The senior class of Brittany Ammerman, Blayre Turnbull, Karley Sylvester, Katy Josephs and Katarina Zgraja leave Wisconsin on this note, not having defeated the Gophers in 18 straight games, dating back to 2011.The younger players could see how those players felt, something they can use as they begin to prepare for next year.“I think in the locker room you could see on the faces of everyone, even the seniors that this was not enough for everyone,” Pankowski said. “It’s going to be that bitter taste that’s in our mouth that’s going to drive us next year.”last_img read more

Bank of Guyana overdraft now over $75B

first_imgꟷ despite IMF warning Govt to settle balanceGeneral and Regional Elections are creeping closer and closer and the central bank’s overdraft of public funds keeps increasing in size— with the latest figures from the Bank of Guyana showing an overdraft of over $75 billion.The Bank of GuyanaAccording to the Bank of Guyana’s statement of Assets and Liabilities, the bank had a negative balance of $76.8 billion as of November 12, 2019. This is a situation that can lead to revenues, in particular, the oil revenues, being diverted.The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has warned about this situation since 2018, writing in its 2018 staff report that: “Staff reiterated and stressed the importance of settling these balances at the central bank, which the authorities agreed to do in the short-term through the issuance of Treasury Bills”.Public deposits at the central bank were plunged into overdraft status back in 2015 when the new coalition government ended the year with a $2.3 billion overdraft. When the Government took over in May 2015, they had met public deposits of approximately $10.4 billion.By 2016 year-end, the overdraft had grown to approximately $21.3 billion, after a year of increasing withdrawals. At the end of the 2017 fiscal year, the overdraft had reached 25.7 billion.In contrast, Bank of Guyana data shows that the bank’s public deposits were in the positive – $21.4 billion to be precise – at the end of 2014. In 2013, the bank’s deposits were $52.1 billion. And the preceding year, the funds were approximately $57.2 billion.While the drawdown on funds started under the previous administration, public deposits were built up to over $69 billion in the year 2010. Far from being built up under the current government, they have never been able to rise above the red.But with the coming oil revenue and the extra case it brings, Government has not appeared too worried about filling fiscal holes. It was previously reported that Finance Minister Winston Jordan when asked about replenishing the fallen foreign reserves, had said there was nothing to worry about with oil money coming in.Jordan had said that with the revenue the Government is expecting from first oil in 2020, the foreign reserves will be replenished. Since he made those comments in September, Exxon and its partners have started pumping oil since last year.“That is just a temporary situation, given our receipts that come in next year,” Jordan said. “And then subsequent to that. One of the reasons you have savings is that if you have need to use some, you do that and afterwards you replenish it as you pick up again.”“So essentially, I don’t know that people have to make an alarm over it. Imports are coming into the country, the exchange rate is relatively there, notwithstanding all the pressure on the regime itself.”“Despite all of that, we are still there. It would be something of a concern if we didn’t have on the horizon foreign exchange coming to replenish, stabilise and grow (the fund),” Jordan had said.last_img read more

Clear commitment needed on the future of three Community Hospitals

first_imgA clear commitment on the future of long-stay beds at Ramelton, St. Joseph’s and Lifford Community Hospitals is required from the Government, Deputy Charlie McConalogue told the Dáil this week.Questioning Junior Minister for Health, Jim Daly, in the Dáil on Thursday, Deputy McConalogue outlined how the Government has so far failed to give a clear assurance that the funding necessary to maintain and expand long term residential beds at the three hospitals would be forthcoming.“There has been genuine concern about the future of long stay beds at the hospital since the Health Capital Plan for Services was first published by Minister Kathleen Lynch in January 2016.  That plan had outlined how these hospitals would have their long term residential beds “replaced” by the planned new Letterkenny Community Hospital and did not provide for any funding for them”, said Deputy McConalogue. “These community hospitals provide much needed long term residential as well as step down care, taking people out of acute hospital settings and ensuring that they receive the care they need in their own locality, near to their friends and family. They are an important service in our local healthcare system and it is essential that they are fully supported at government level.“Members of the local community served by Ramelton, St Joseph’s and Lifford made it crystal clear that they will not accept any removal of long term bed capacity when Minister Daly attended a public meeting in Ballybofey in February of this year.”Deputy Charlie McConalogue said that a plan has now been put together by the HSE at local level which outlines the works necessary to ensure that bed capacity at Ramelton and St Joseph’s is at least maintained, and clarifies that a new build is required for Lifford.“However the government has yet to follow through and has failed to make a clear commitment that this funding will be made available in upcoming capital plans, and importantly that long term bed capacity will be retained and enhanced in to the future. “I await the update Minister Daly promised to issue in his Dáil response this week and will be seeking that the government follows through and commits to the long term future of the three hospitals”, concluded Deputy McConalogue.Clear commitment needed on the future of three Community Hospitals was last modified: June 29th, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
