MOH Gets Medical Disinfectant Worth 144K Euros

first_imgMr.Wahl making a symbolic presentation at one of the hospitalsBy Gloria T. TambaThe Ministry of Health on Wednesday received a large consignment of medical disinfectant materials worth over 144,000 Euros (US$161,335) from Numelec, a Swiss group in partnership with Vice President Joseph Nyuma Boakai to improve the country’s health sector.The hospitals benefitting from the Swiss largesse are Phebe, in Bong County; Tellewoyan, in Voinjama, Lofa County; and Jackson F. Doe Memorial Regional Referral Hospital in Tappita, Nimba County.Presenting the items to the Ministry recently, the president of Numelec, Mr. François Wahl, disclosed that the donation resulted from Vice President Boakai’s recent visit to Geneva, Switzerland where he requested for better health care delivery services in Liberia.Wahl said during the VP’s visit, the need to have foreign aid to buttress government’s efforts to strengthen the country’s health sector was the priority issue which prompted the Swiss group to send the medical supplies to Liberia.He explained that when it comes to health expenditure, Liberia has the lowest in the world, and recommend that new health centers be built, old ones renovated and to have current medical technologies introduced, “because when the health of the people is improved, it will reduce poverty, vulnerability and improve productivity, economic growth and health investment.”According to Whal, the disinfectant is a no-touch technology that makes life easier for infection free perfectionists, patients and healthcare workers.“The disinfectant materials are critical to hospitals because they help reduce the high death rates and will be used to help protect the hospitals against any outbreak,” he said.Mr. Wahl stated that the estimated cost of the materials is over 144,000 Euros, adding that the materials require users to be well trained before operating them for effective use.“For the first phase of our work with these materials in the country, we will train health workers on how to use them to ensure that the health sector yields more positive results,” he said.In response, VP Boakai told the gathering that the donation by the Government of Switzerland was based on an appeal to it for medical supplies to improve Liberia’s health sector.“This has always been my appeal when I travel to other countries – to see a difference in my country especially when it comes to the good of the country,” the VP said.“When we were in Geneva I was wondering what the people would appreciate, so I suggested the health sector, which is my key priority. And so, this is what they brought to improve our health sector, and we welcome this contribution to the healthcare delivery of our country.”Minister of Health Dr. Bernice Dahn lauded the people of Switzerland for the major support to the Ministry especially when the country is at the rebuilding stages of its health system.“I remember during the Ebola crisis a carrier of Ebola died in one of the hospitals and we had to close the entire hospital down for a longer period of time because we didn’t have disinfectants to disinfect the entire area. With these supplies of medical disinfectant our hospitals and patients will be in a safe environment,” she said.Minister Dahn promised to put in place mechanisms that will ensure the proper use of the materials.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Five things we learned from the Premier League

first_imgOn the ManeLiverpool’s Sadio Mane took his tally for the season to four goals in four games at Leicester on Saturday © AFP / Oli SCARFFThe stunning form of Mohamed Salah left Sadio Mane in the shade when praise was dished out for Liverpool’s run to the Champions League final and the top four last season.However, with Salah struggling to match those standards early on in his second season, Mane is showing why he was considered the man Liverpool couldn’t cope without early in Jurgen Klopp’s reign.A 2-1 win at Leicester on Saturday ensured Klopp’s men still haven’t dropped a point and Mane has been the key figure with four goals in as many games.Liverpool were once again not at their free-flowing best with Salah subbed 20 minutes from time, but Mane’s goals have kept their bid for a first league title since 1990 intact while the Egyptian gets back up to speed.Alonso makes Chelsea clickChelsea manager Maurizio Sarri hailed Marcos Alonso as the best left-back in Europe after another fine performance against Bournemouth © AFP / Ian KINGTONChelsea sit alongside Liverpool with a perfect record despite new boss Maurizio Sarri’s fears it would take time to impose a very different style to his predecessor Antonio Conte.A move to a back four should in theory have curbed Marcos Alonso’s rampaging runs forward from left-back, but instead the Spaniard has been Chelsea’s most potent offensive weapon so far this season.Alonso scored the winner in a 3-2 thrillier against Arsenal, won penalties in victories at Huddersfield and Newcastle and now has two assists to his name after playing a part in both goals in a 2-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.“Alonso, at the moment, this position at left-back is maybe the best in Europe,” said an impressed Sarri.Mourinho out of troubleJose Mourinho was relieved as Manchester United ended their losing run © AFP / Lindsey PARNABYWith the vultures circling over Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho was given a welcome boost by Romelu Lukaku as Manchester United ended their two-game losing streak with a 2-0 win at Burnley.United boss Mourinho was reportedly in danger of losing his job if his spluttering side crashed to a third successive defeat.Already off to their worst start for 26 years amid Mourinho’s feud with United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, over transfer policy, and star midfielder Paul Pogba, over a perceived lack of effort, this was a must-win game for the Portuguese coach.Lukaku’s double was just reward for a solid United performance despite Marcus Rashford’s red card for a headbutt.Arsenal pass test of mettleArsenal’s Aaron Ramsey stood up to Cardiff’s physical test © AFP / Geoff CADDICKWith Cardiff boss Neil Warnock vowing to get his players to “rough up” Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey, Unai Emery’s side knew they were in for a fight in south Wales.Warnock’s aggressive team were as promised, producing a no-holds-barred display in front of a passionate crowd at the Cardiff City Stadium.Twice Cardiff came from behind to draw level in the kind of difficult match that often ended in disaster for Arsenal in the latter stages of the Arsene Wenger era.But, on this occasion at least, the Gunners showed some backbone, winning 3-2 thanks to Alexandre Lacazette’s late goal.It was their first away win of the season and offered encouragement that Emery is capable of fixing Arsenal’s numerous flaws.Is Mitrovic Rafa’s regret?Aleksandar Mitrovic has made a fine start to the season with Fulham © AFP / Kirill KUDRYAVTSEVAleksandar Mitrovic sits alongside Mane as the Premier League’s top scorer after netting for the fourth time in three games for Fulham in a 2-2 draw at Brighton.The Serbian has now scored more goals on his own than former club Newcastle, who lie in the bottom three after a 2-1 defeat at Manchester City.Much has been made of Magpies owner Mike Ashley’s failure to back Rafa Benitez in the transfer market.But Benitez himself has to carry some of the blame for Newcastle’s lack of firepower as he was happy to send Mitrovic out on loan to Craven Cottage last season before making that deal permanent for a reported £22 million.Mitrovic had already been worth that fee for Fulham in firing them to promotion with 12 goals in 20 games during his loan spell and his goals are making the Londoners look more likely to remain in the top flight than Newcastle at present.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Victory for Manchester United at Burnley eased the pressure on manager Jose MourinhoLONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 2 – Liverpool head into the international break on top of the table as Sadio Mane inspired their hard-fought win at Leicester, while Chelsea’s Marcos Alonso has made a fine start to the season for Maurizio Sarri’s team.Here are five things we learned from the Premier League this weekend:last_img read more

Ajax crash out of Champions League after defeat by Valencia

first_img“Time puts everyone in their place,” said Rodrigo afterwards. “We made a huge effort against Chelsea and it wasn’t to be but this team never tires of miracles and this is another one.”Ajax were arguably the story of the competition last season when their youthful team went all the way to the semi-finals but there will be no repeat this year.Gabriel Paulista was sent off in injury-time but even against 10 men, they could not find the equaliser they needed.Instead, Valencia not only progress but have earned themselves the best chance of a kind draw when the knock-out stage is decided in Nyon on December 16.It seemed unlikely after they missed a series of golden opportunities to beat Chelsea earlier this month but a 2-2 draw still left them with a chance, even if the odds were not in their favour.They knew they either had to beat Ajax, against whom they had lost 3-0 at home in October, or at least match the result of Chelsea, who always seemed likely to win against Lille at Stamford Bridge.Ajax, meanwhile, began the night two points clear at the top of the group and needed only a draw to go through.Valencia coach Albert Celades, who made his La Liga debut as a player under Cruyff, was now in the dugout of the stadium named after the iconic Dutchman and this will be a major boost for his side, who are eighth in La Liga after a rocky start to the season on and off the pitch.– Brilliant Gaya clearance –“It’s a huge reinforcement for us,” said Celades.Ajax sit three points clear at the top of the Eredivisie but last year’s heroics in the Champions League, and their heartbreaking defeat to Tottenham, meant they had European ambitions too.Rodrigo headed wide from a corner early on but after a frantic start, the game settled, with Ajax dominating possession and Valencia trying to counter-attack.Against the run of play, Valencia took the lead as Rodrigo’s bending run in behind was picked out by a Ferran Torres pass. Rodrigo controlled with his left and fired the ball with his right into the roof of the net.Ajax had to wait until the end of the half for their best chance as Donny van de Beek latched onto Hakim Ziyech’s pass and lifted the ball over Jaume Domenech, only for Jose Gaya to make a brilliant clearance off the line.Rodrigo might have made it two at the other end but it was Ajax that were pushing for an equaliser after the restart as Valencia retreated.Ziyech should have levelled but fluffed his finish at the near post before 20-year-old Noa Lang hooked over from inside the box.Lille pulled a goal back away at Chelsea to give Ajax further hope and they were almost gifted an equaliser by Valencia’s Daniel Wass, who chested the ball away from his own goalkeeper.Ziyech went close with a shot towards the near post and, three minutes into injury time, Gabriel was sent off for thrusting his head into Dusan Tadic.It left Valencia to defend two minutes, and a corner, with 10 men but Ajax could not find a way through.0Shares0000(Visited 11 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Ajax were knocked out of the Champions League on Tuesday after a 1-0 loss at home to Valencia © ANP/AFP / Maurice van STEENAMSTERDAM, Netherlands, Dec 11 – Ajax’s hopes of another fairytale run in the Champions League were dashed on Tuesday as a 1-0 defeat at home to Valencia sent them crashing out and the Spaniards through to the last 16.Rodrigo Moreno’s 24th-minute strike proved the winner at the Johan Cruyff Arena and enough to flip the top three in Group H, with Valencia advancing in first place along with Chelsea, who beat bottom club Lille 2-1.last_img read more

Rumsfeld immune in torture case

first_imgPARIS – A Paris prosecutor has thrown out a complaint against former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld for torture in Iraq and at the U.S. military detention camp at Guantanamo Bay, a lawyer for one of the four groups that filed the case said Friday. The prosecutor dismissed the case on the grounds that Rumsfeld benefits from immunity, said attorney Patrick Baudoin, president of the International Federation of Human Rights. The organizations that brought the complaint have asked the prosecutor to reconsider. The complaint was filed Oct. 25 during a visit by Rumsfeld to Paris. Prosecutor Jean-Claude Marin said Rumsfeld is covered by the immunity accorded to heads of state or government and foreign ministers for acts during their time in office, according to a letter seen by The Associated Press. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Donegal drivers urged to exchange for Irish licence before Brexit deadline

first_imgHolders of UK Drivers licences have been urged to immediately exchange their licences for an Irish drivers licence or they run the risk of holding no valid licence after Brexit occurs, according to the Road Safety Authority. Drivers have until April 12th to exchange their licenses unless a further extension is agreed between the UK and the European Union.Speaking on Saturday, Deputy Gallagher said: “It would be prudent to act now rather than wait and see what eventual outcome there is to the UK Parliament decision on Brexit, as there will be natural delays in exchanging licences. “But if a crash out of the EU occurs with the United Kingdom, then overnight you could very well find out that your UK licence is no longer valid to use on Irish roads if you are residing in the Republic.”The Road Safety Authority (RSA) confirmed last month that the demand had reached up to 500 applications per day.The Minister for Transport Shane Ross said: “The Road Safety Authority (RSA), through the National Driver Licence Service (NDLS) are informing people to avail of the exchange facility in place to swap over the UK licence for an Irish licence before that facility extinguishes in the event of a no-deal Brexit.“Therefore it is critical that holders of UK drivers Licences avail of this exchange scheme before the Brexit deadline.” Donegal drivers urged to exchange for Irish licence before Brexit deadline was last modified: March 31st, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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
