first_imgHe said the man was one of nine active cases who had been held in quarantine since they were repatriated from India on July 1.Before then, Fiji had enjoyed a spell of four weeks virus-free, after the 18 cases it had previously recorded all recovered.Fiji and other Pacific island nations were initially seen as among the world’s most vulnerable to the virus because of under-resourced health infrastructure and high rates of health conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.However, nations in the region acted swiftly and made the costly decision to seal borders, shutting down the tourism trade that powered their economies in order to protect their populations. Fiji announced its first coronavirus death Friday, but health officials assured people in the Pacific island nation that it was not the precursor to a major outbreak.Health Minister Ifereimi Waqainabete said the victim was a 66-year-old man who tested positive after returning from India, where he had undergone surgery for a long-standing heart condition.”Sadly, despite the best efforts of our health-care professionals, this gentleman passed away yesterday in the isolation ward at Lautoka hospital due to complications from COVID-19,” Waqainabete told reporters. Read also: ‘Answered prayers’: Fiji declares itself coronavirus freeWaqainabete said the dead man, and the other eight cases among the group from India, had “zero interaction” with Fiji’s general population.”In many other countries, news of the first death due to the virus has signaled an intensifying of the outbreak,” he said.”This is not the case for Fiji. The virus is not present in Fijian communities, nor is there any risk of infection among the Fijian public.”Waqainabete offered condolences to the man’s family.”This is an enormous tragedy for them, and I can tell you that our staff at the ministry of health and medical services are devastated by this loss as well,” he said.He said Fiji remained committed to repatriating its citizens and had confidence in measures enacted to isolate any cases among returnees.Topics :last_img read more

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Perhaps the No. 1 most joyful thing about Oxford’s High School baseball team’s entry into the 2015 Class 2A-A State Tournament in Great Bend is it came so unexpectedly.Oxford was 8-11 and the fourth seed going into the Central-Burden regional tournament. Then they knocked out West Elk in a hard-fought battle. The Wildcats then stunned the world by knocking off 18-2 Udall before beating Cedar Vale-Dexter in the championship game.Consider this, Oxford is 11-11 and has as many as six freshmen and two sophomores at once. And they are going back to the state tournament for the first time since 2006.Now Oxford is set to play in the state tournament on Thursday. Here are 10 things to know about the Oxford Wildcat baseball team and the tournament ahead. Just a note, Sumner Newscow will be providing live tweets of the first round contest.1. The who, what, where’s of state tournament ahead. Oxford is scheduled to play Moscow in the first round of the single elimination tournament at Great Bend Sports Complex. Originally, that game was set for 6:30 p.m.  But because of the stormy weather Kansas has had lately, KSHSAA officials are taking no chances. The KSHSAA sent out an e-mail stating that each game will start approximately 30 minutes after the previous game.  So it might behoove the Wildcat fans to get there earlier than 6:30. A baseball game lasts about 90 minutes and the first game starts at 11 a.m.The tournament is single elimination. If Oxford wins then it will play after the 10 a.m. semifinal game against the winner of Medicine Lodge (19-4) vs. Olathe Heritage Christian Academy (10-13). The full bracket is here.2. Thursday’s weather forecast in Great Bend. Like the rainy weather has been cooperative anytime this month. Tomorrow, Great Bend is predicted to have 40 percent chance of rain. On Friday, the likelihood of rain increases to 60 percent. Keep an umbrella handy, and don’t be surprised that your trip to Great Bend will require some waiting time.3. So where is Moscow? Moscow comes into the tournament at 17-5 as the third seed. It is located in southwest Kansas between Hugoton and Satanta — or north of Liberal, or in no man’s land. Moscow won the Syracuse Regional just east of the Kansas-Colorado state line which included Elkhart, Loti-Wichita County, Satanta and Syracuse.4. The scouting report.Oxford head baseball coach Kyle Green said Moscow is senior loaded with a lefty pitcher by the name of Tad Stuckey.“He’s got a decent fastball but from what I’ve been told his curve is a plus,” Green said.Offensively, Moscow gets most of its run production from Stuckey, and second baseman Alexis Manriquez, both seniors. Also, freshman Jalen Shaddix had six RBIs in the regional final.5. What Oxford needs to do to win.Continue to play the small ball better than the others. Interestingly, Oxford goes into the state tournament with no home runs and one triple this season. But they play smart on bases, much like the Kansas City Royals.“We have to keep the same formula that led us on this run,” Green said. “Our pitchers have to pound the zone, be efficient, play error free baseball and get some timely hitting.“Do the ordinary things well and the baseball gods will take care of us.”6. The Wildkittens? As mentioned above, the Wildcats are relatively young with two senior starters and the rest being underclassmen.“The best line I heard from Oggie Shimkus is we are like the Oxford ‘Wildkittens,” Green said. “These kids have handed the pressure so well. They are unique.”7. Oxford has two seniors – but they are good. Shimkus is a senior who has played a ton of baseball. He has the team’s highest on-base-percentage of .459 with a .333 batting average. Derek Williams has a .214 batting average and his OBP is .321.8. And then there is that youth.The two sophomores Oxford starts have played a bunch in the summer. Dylan Reuter has played on various summer teams and started last year. Grant Smith also started last year and has played a pile of summer ball.“All of the freshman have played the bulk of their summer careers for Kenny Thomas and have had success,” Green said. “I was worried about the pressure factor going into the Udall and Cedar Vale-Dexter games in region. But all of those kids have been in big games throughout their careers. It was just another game to them.”9. The traveling Oxford team…With the Oxford field being under water, the Wildcats have been all over the place practicing. On Monday, they were at the Armory in Wellington. Tuesday they practiced at the Hafner Center at Cowley County Community College.“They are just excited to now be part of the Oxford baseball tradition, now that they’ve gotten back to state,” Green said. “This is our ninth trip to state if you count state tournament from the late 1950s and early 1960s. But this is the first time since 2006. We are glad to be back.”10.

first_img0Shares0000Nakumatt FC head coach Mwangi named May Fidelity Insurance Coach of the MonthNAIROBI, Kenya, July 3 – Demoted Nakumatt FC tactician Anthony Mwangi has been named the Fidelity Insurance Coach of the Month for May.With his fete Nakumatt became the 1st team to scoop both player and coach’s gong in a single month following Boniface Mukhekhe’s crowning last week. The 33-year-old Mwangi was in charge of Nakumatt’s technical bench when they recorded three victories and a draw to claim the most number of league points in May.Ten points garnered in their best run of the season also lifted Nakumatt from relegation zone to mid table comfort. Sofapaka also recorded three victories and a draw but Batoto Ba Mungu tactician John Baraza lost out to Mwangi on superior goal count.In spite of the stellar performance in May, Mwangi has since been redeployed to the role of assistant coach with American Melis Medo taking over as the head coach.Nakumatt launched their May campaign with a hard-fought 3-2 win over Zoo FC in Kericho followed by a 2-2 draw against AFC Leopards in Machakos.They then defeated Tusker FC 2-1 in Machakos before beating Posta Rangers 2-0 in the last match of the month at Camp Toyoyo Grounds. The good run saw them move from the foot of the Kenyan Premier League table to 12th position.Mwangi, a former Liberty Academy, and Mathare Youth coach took home with Sh75,000 courtesy of sponsors, Fidelity Insurance, and personalized trophy. He attributed the fine run on financial incentives brought in by new owners and paid tribute to Melis who had just joined the team in a consultancy capacity then.“The injection of financial investment by new owners helped transform the team during that month but I must give credit to the players for rising to the occasion. We previously went into games without proper training but since finance was availed preparations were better. The players did their part and I’m grateful it won me this award,” The soft spoken Mwangi remarked0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
