Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York A 38-year-old Bay Shore man was arrested Thursday, three days after he allegedly assaulted a woman and left her on the side of the Southern State Parkway in Suffolk County, State police said. Investigators charged Antoine Smiley, a parolee, with first-degree robbery and second-degree assault. State police said they received a 911 call on Wednesday from a motorist who saw an injured woman on the side of the parkway, near exit 37. When Troopers arrived they found a “seriously injured female” who had been assaulted and robbed, police said in a news release. The woman was taken to a nearby hospital, police said. After a three-day investigation, Smiley was apprehended by the US Marshal’s Regional Fugitive Task Force and later processed by State police. He is awaiting arraignment. According to New York State records, Smiley was released to parole supervision on March 30 and had absconded. Police said the investigation is continuing. Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call State police at 631-231-6389. A police spokesman was not immediately available for comment.
To improve the incentive for vaccination, CMS in January increased the average Medicare payment for administering each shot from $8 to $18, in addition to a separate payment for the cost of the vaccine, officials said. Medicare officials hope to raise immunization coverage among nursing home residents for both flu and pneumococcal disease to 90%. A national nursing home survey in 1999 revealed that only 65% of residents had received flu shots and 38% had had a vaccination for bacterial pneumonia, the agency said. In case of a vaccine shortage, state agencies would have the option not to cite nursing homes for failing to comply with the immunization rules, according to the plan. CMS also wants nursing home workers to get flu shots, but will not require that. The agency said research from the last flu season showed that only 36% of all healthcare workers received flu shots, even though immunizing nursing home employees has been shown to reduce death rates among residents of the homes. Nursing homes would have to give the immunizations unless the patient or patient’s family refused or the shots were medically contraindicated, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) said in a news release. “Vaccines against these diseases are effective in preventing hospitalizations and death,” CMS Administrator Mark B. McClellan, MD, PhD, said in the news release. “However, many people are not getting the vaccines they need. This initiative will be critical to maintaining high-quality care in the nation’s long-term care facilities.” About 2 million Americans live in nursing homes, and people aged 65 and older account for more than 90% of flu-related deaths in the United States, the CMS said. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 36,000 people die and 200,000 are hospitalized because of flu and its complications each year. Aug 18, 2005 (CIDRAP News) Nursing homes that serve Medicare and Medicaid recipients would have to vaccinate residents against influenza and pneumococcal disease to stay in the federal programs, under a plan announced last week. The proposal was to be published Aug 15 in the Federal Register. Because of the approaching flu season, CMS set a comment period of only 15 days. In developing its proposal, CMS received advice from the CDC and two large nursing home industry groups, the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging and the American Health Care Association.

Most Indonesians believe that some information regarding COVID-19 positive patients should be available to the public to be used for contact tracing, as reflected by a recent survey.The survey was conducted between March 20 and 21 by the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI), in collaboration with the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) and other institutions, to find out the public perception of information transparency in regard to the COVID-19 outbreak.The report showed that 97 percent of 15,101 respondents agreed that the recent travel history of COVID-19 positive patients should be made available to the public. Meanwhile, 65.8 percent of survey respondents supported transparency regarding the detailed address of each patient. Respondents were citizens aged 21 to 40 years old selected randomly, 65 percent were women.“Respondents from both Java and other islands consider it important to publish the last 14 days travel history of COVID-19 patients,” University of Indonesia School of Psychology crisis and disaster researcher Dicky Pelupessy said during an online press briefing on Friday.Read also: COVID 19: Public fend for themselves amid scarcity of information from governmentSuch information would help people to be more cautious and impose self-quarantine if they happen to have had direct contact with a confirmed positive patient, he went on to say. Around 61 percent of respondents agreed that authorities should announce the patients’ names, although they later said it was unnecessary to publish such information.In addition, 64 percent of respondents agreed that the patients’ addresses should be disclosed, but that the information should be limited to the name of the district in which they lived. Furthermore, only 60.8 percent of respondents said the subdistrict where the patients lived should also be announced.“People would be more cautious if they found out that someone in their neighborhood was infected with COVID-19,” Dicky said.Based on the survey, researchers recommended that authorities make the home addresses of COVID-19 patients available to the public, but only up to the neighborhood unit (RT) level.”The government also needs to guarantee the publication of personal information under a clear legal mechanism. Anyone misusing such information could be charged under regulations,” LIPI population researcher Rusli Cahyadi said.“Such recommendation is not against the law. In fact, it will support other regulations regarding the imposed quarantine policy.”Read also: Coronavirus spreading fast but stigma is more dangerous: WHOPrior to the survey, Indonesian Medical Association (IDI) chairman Daeng Mohammad Faqih urged the government to reveal COVID-19 positive patients’ identity in order to help medical workers carry out contact tracing. Such disclosure would also help the government estimate how widespread the disease is, he added.The Central Information Commission (KIP) also urged the government and its COVID-19 rapid response team to proactively deliver correct and updated information regarding the disease. However, the commission warned that patients’ personal information should only be published with their consent.The country’s first two confirmed COVID-19 cases were hit by stigma after their personal details – initials, age and home address – were disbursed on social media from unclear sources, not long after the government broke the news on the cases.The number of COVID-19 positive cases in the country reached 1,000 on Friday, with 1,046 cases confirmed and 87 fatalities.

The capital, home to at least 10 million people, has countless densely populated areas, known as kampung, often next to upscale residential areas and along riverbanks.Statistics Indonesia (BPS) recorded that Jakarta had 445 community units that were categorized as “slums”, 15 of which were categorized as high density, 99 moderate, 205 light and 126 very light.Meanwhile, Kebon Kacang subdistrict head Aiman said he was concerned that many residents in the densely populated area near the banks of the Krukut River in Kebon Kacang were still going outside and not obeying physical distancing measures amid the city’s implementation of large-scale social restrictions (PSBB).“We’ve been monitoring but the people keep gathering outside, sometimes without wearing a mask and not maintaining a safe distance. It’s very dangerous as the neighborhood is a densely populated area in which houses are adjacent,” Aiman said on Tuesday, as quoted by kompas.com. He said his administration, the police and the military had warned residents and asked them to stay at home and practice physical distancing to curb the spread of the disease.Read also: Hand washing to counter COVID-19 still a luxury for Indonesia’s urban poorHe added that even people under general monitoring for COVID-19 had been found engaging in activities outside their homes. “They have been told to self-quarantine at home for two weeks straight but apparently they didn’t listen,” he said.As of Wednesday, Jakarta had recorded 4,709 confirmed cases, with 420 deaths ‒ a death rate of 9 percent. So far, 713 people have recovered from the disease.Topics : A total of 21 of 150 residents in a dense neighborhood in Kebon Kacang subdistrict, Central Jakarta, who underwent rapid testing for COVID-19 on Monday have tested positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus.The Jakarta Health Agency is starting to map SARS-CoV-2 transmission in crowded settlements. “We’re currently identifying samples in densely populated settlements to see if transmission occurs there as well as to expedite handling of cases if cases are found in the area,” the agency’s head of the disease control and prevention division, Dwi Oktavia Handayani, told The Jakarta Post on Wednesday.She said the agency would choose the most densely populated area in each district and conduct rapid tests for about 200 people in each area. Jakarta has 267 districts, 260 of which have reported COVID-19 cases. Previously, experts warned that the urban poor living in crowded conditions were at higher risk of contracting the virus.Read also: 133 more COVID-19 cases in Jakarta despite ‘flattened curve’ claims

… Teammates remember stalwart defenderBy Ras WadadaTHE Pele FC continues to mourn the recent loss of the club’s first captain Wendell Manifold, who passed away due to cardiac arrest at the Brooklyn Downstate Hospital last Wednesday. Sunrise:23-051954 – Sunset 25-03-2020. The 65-year-old former student of Charlestown Secondary School had to be rushed to the Medical Centre via EMS after he took ill at home last Monday.The former national Under-18 captain who left Guyana in 1974 on a football scholarship to Clemson University in South Carolina, USA at the age of 20 is considered by his peers and many others, who were privileged to see the big 6-footer commanding and leading on a pitch, as the best defender ever to don the senior national colours.Chronicle Sport caught up with several players who played with ‘Dragga’ or ‘Ganghi Boor’ as he was affectionately known, and all expressed glowing tributes. Bert Smith, Administrator/Coach NY Santos:Dragga is the premier centre-back that I have seen coming out of Guyana, and probably the best ever. In New York he was always outstanding when he played for Blackpool FC and Santos FC. His versatility was, in fact, the reliability for the team because when a goal was needed he would calculatedly leave the defence to join the attack and either scored or assisted.He was rock solid in defence and in my estimation the best sweeper back Guyana has produced. Besides being an extremely talented player, he was an extreme human being off the field of play, a very nice person. He truly loved the game and still played in the Masters Over-50s with command and respect. Wendell ‘Figaro’ Sandiford, former Pele, GFC and (Youth and Senior) National Goalkeeper:Wendell was my first captain at Pele FC and it was a pleasure playing with him as my fullback cause he was like a wall in defence. We communicated well and had a fantastic understanding as goalkeeper and sweeper. I would always know when he played the ball back to me without being called out. What stands out in my memory of ‘Dragga’ as captain and senior player to the team is his advice along with instructions to younger players on all aspects of the game which enabled us all to improve and develop to the next level. He definitely moulded us, before he migrated to the U.S., into becoming the top football team in the country.His vast knowledge of the game at such an early age was phenomenal. He earned the respect on the pitch everywhere he played and no doubt Guyana has lost a great son of the soil. He will be missed. Brenthley Babb, former Pele and Santos FC midfielder:He was one of Guyana’s greatest-ever footballing talent, a defensive icon and leader. Wendell mastered every aspect of the defensive game and was an imposing and tenacious player with supreme confidence and at times demonstrated the skill and fluidity of a central midfielder.He was the most resolute tackler on any field, but always a gentleman off the field. Always he was encouraging and respectful to his teammates and opponents, even the least talented. Although he never represented Guyana at the senior level he was being compared, as a teenager, with the likes of the legendary Earl O’Neal, who at that time was Guyana’s top central defender. I must admit he was the most difficult defender to dribble and was enormously influential to me in my football. He will never be forgotten. Clyde ‘Farmer’ Browne former Santos and national defender:Wendell was the personification and face of Pele FC when it was formed. I was the coach in charge of the defensive section of the team and had the pleasure and honour to coach him. As the captain of the team he was an astute defender and is the reason why Pele FC became so successful.We were roommates at Clemson and became even greater friends mainly because of his jovial character. I always felt assured that he had my back both on and off the pitch. I have no doubt that myself and all of his former teammates will surely miss ‘The Captain’, but we all will forever cherish the great memories that he has left us. Gordon Alphonso, former national youth player and teammate at Clemson:“I had the privilege and honour of playing soccer with Wendell at the club, National U-17 level and at Clemson University. He was a very skilled player who played in defence with an icy coolness, fierceness and intensity. I always knew that with Wendell in defence our team always generated the feeling that we could not lose. He was not only combative but was a very good reader of the game and always aware of situations and how to counter.He was a defender and student of the game of the highest order. Off the field he was nothing short of a ‘Gentle Giant’ who was a very loving and caring person towards his friends and family. His conversations on life’s experiences were always a pleasure to engage him on. I am sure we all who had the honour to know him will surely miss him.Patrick ‘Labba’ Barton former Pele FC captain and youth and senior national player:“Wendell was a fullback who had tremendous attacking abilities whenever he chose to or saw the need to join the attacking flow. He was incredibly fit and had a great awareness without leaving too large a gap between him and the rest of the team which allowed him to quickly recover in the event of a counterattack by opponents. His main strength was his decision-making ability and he was always calm and composed under pressure and never panicked.He understood his teammates and was gifted with sound technical skills that allowed him to dominate any player within the 18-yards box which was his domain. I was fortunate to play with Wendell for both Pele FC and Blackpool FC in NY.Taking over the captaincy from Wendell when he departed for Clemson was a pair of huge shoes to fill but he had laid the foundation and set the bar. We will all be indebted to him for the success Pele FC enjoyed and surely he will be most remembered and missed. James ‘Berbice’ Paul, former Arsenal, Santos and National (youth and senior) player: With the passing of Wendell Manifold, Guyana has lost a gentle giant. That ‘gentle’, however, only applied to his cool demeanour off the field since on the pitch he was as cagey and resilient a baller as any. A tall, skilled and tenacious defender, Wendell commanded the centre-back position like a general. I had the honour of playing against him in his twilight years and though he had passed his prime he won most of the many battles we were engaged in at the notorious ‘Dust Bowl’ at Caton Park in Brooklyn.As a young footballer from Berbice I distinctly remember seeing his name and photos featured prominently in the newspapers and have also heard many stories of his outstanding contribution to the success of perennial league champion, Pele FC. He will certainly be missed.Wendell Peter Manifold will be buried this coming Wednesday in New York, but due to COVID-19 only immediate family will attend. A Memorial Service will be held at a later date for friends and well-wishers.Rise In Power Dragga/Ganghi Boor!
