California Department of Public Health and Los Angeles County officials said delays in the process had resulted in undercounts of COVID-19 infections dating back to July 26. It was not clear how extensive the underreporting was.The city embarked on putting together its own data reporting system, but it was yet to be operational Thursday, city spokeswoman Lisa Derderian said.“Despite reaching out to our providers directly, we did not receive any reports via (spreadsheets) per CDPH guidelines,” said Derderian. “These providers are all currently working on fulfilling the request now, however.”As of Wednesday, the city had reported 2,035 infections and 111 deaths, city data shows.Derderian said the city expected to have data directly from local medical providers, and update its online COVID-19 Dashboard by Friday. But Derderian cautioned there was a possibility there could still be undercounts with the new system.“Also, as of this time, the CDPH has not yet announced when the Electronic Lab Reporting system will be functioning normally,” she added.“We are working very hard to collect this data despite the state’s glitch,” Derderian said.In the meantime, trace investigators were taking advantage of the time to attempt to recontact people who had received positive test results but have not returned prior calls from tracers, as well as working on improving data quality, “ so that we are ready to go with the expected backlog tomorrow,” she said.The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health had also released no COVID-19 statistics as of late Thursday afternoon.The CDPH reported 5,258 new detected infections and 166 deaths on Thursday.That placed California’s total known COVID-19 cases at 529,180 and increased the virus’ death toll in the state to 9,869.

Ogunkoya noted that this is the first IUA event in this part of the world in 35 years and one would have thought that Ogba will have taken it to his domain but he has chosen to allow Remo Town to get the honour.“The people of Remo and indeed Ogun State are grateful to Chief Ogba for being a true Nigerian and for giving us the opportunity to host runners from across the different countries.“The whole town is grateful and I can assure you that everyone is looking forward to this weekend, apart from the race, everyone would also have a chance to explore the tourism potentials of Ogun State” Ogunkoya who is the President Of the Ogun State Athletics Association stated.Ogunkoya also thanked Valuejet and other sponsors that are supporting ‘Remo 2019’ for making what seemed like a tall dream to become a reality.The President of the South-West Athletics Association also expressed gratitude to the likes of Kunle Soname and Bukola Oloopade who both have been supportive in organising this epoch-making event.While Ogunkoya is confident of brilliant races at the weekend, she has also predicted that there would be more cause for celebration when the son of the soil Anthony Joshua takes to the ring to reclaim his world boxing title form Andy Ruiz far way in Saudi Arabia.“I know it would be celebration galore this weekend” Ogunkoya assuredAlready, dignitaries for the championships from across the continent have started arriving in Nigeria.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Falilat Ogunkoya

This is the third mural produced from the program, which is meant to bring exciting artwork to the area.Flood began working on Aug. 24 on the side of the Thunder Bay Theatre’s warehouse. Four days later, and the work she calls “Together Again” is finished. “It’s based on embrace and community and connections,” said Flood. “So, just reminding everyone to give that passion and that community feeling, which I definitely felt from everyone this week.”Over the past few days, Flood has received praise from members of the community. Executive Director of the Alpena Downtown Development Authority, Anne Gentry said she was amazed with the finished product and is glad they were able to do two murals this summer instead of one. “With everything going on in the world right now, especially with the pandemic, we thought it was more important now than ever to invest in something so bright and colorful that people can drive by and walk by every day,” she said. “We’ve heard a lot of positive comments, as the artist has, from different community members just thanking us for bringing something that’s so joyful to our community in these times.”This will be the last mural for the summer, but Gentry said they’re already looking forward to next year.“We’ll probably do another application process for both artists and downtown locations. We brainstormed, do we want to do a more temporary mural somewhere, do we want to do one location, two locations again next year? We hope to continue bringing more to our community.”The new mural can be found on the Fletcher Street side of the Thunder Bay Theatre warehouse.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Alpena Downtown Development AuthorityContinue ReadingPrevious Driving test safety precautionsNext United Way implements 21-day equity challenge
