Face masks a must in public places, says Indonesia’s COVID-19 rapid-response team

first_img“I’ve ordered [my administration] to prepare for the distribution of face masks to the public because we’re planning to require everyone who leaves their homes to wear a mask, in accordance with the WHO recommendations,” he said on Monday. Doni said that medical-grade masks would still only be distributed to healthcare providers.”For the public, the President has asked regional leaders to ramp up production of cloth masks through small and medium enterprises. This will help to fulfill [the regions’] need for masks, so they won’t depend on the central government,” Doni said.According to livescience.com, asymptomatic people can still spread COVID-19, with the United States’ Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) finding that up to 25 percent of people who contract the virus may not show symptoms.A new small study also found that COVID-19 may be most infectious when symptoms are mildest. This new evidence indicates the virus can spread between people who interact in close proximity such as when speaking and when someone coughs or sneezes.Topics : “Previously, the WHO advised that only sick people should wear face masks but now it recommends that everyone wear face masks, especially in public places,” he added.However, Doni explained that only healthcare providers and other medical professionals working on the front line needed to wear medical-grade masks, such as surgical masks and N95 masks.  “The public can wear cloth masks, or masks made from other materials, as long as they can prevent the spread of saliva droplets when speaking,” he added.President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo said the government was preparing face masks for future public distribution. To help flatten the COVID-19 curve, the government is now urging people to wear face masks whenever they are out in public.The new recommendation is an update from the previous guidelines and is in line with the World Health Organization’s (WHO) latest recommendation. Previously, Indonesia complied with the WHO’s recommendations that face masks only be worn by medical professionals and sick people in order to prevent a supply shortage. “The President has asked us to make guidelines on face masks in accordance with the World Health Organization’s advice,” head of Indonesia’s COVID-19 rapid response task force, Doni Monardo, told an online press conference on Monday. last_img read more

Reinforcements met the Expectations, Garcia satisfied with Džeko and Salah

first_imgIn the first round of the Italian Serie A, Verona and Roma played 1: 1, and coach of Roma, Rudi Garcia, despite the tie result, praised the performance of B&H national team captain Edin Džeko and Egypt international Mohamed Salah, two players who arrived in the club this summer.Garcia said that he is very satisfied with reinforcements after their first match in the national championship.“Edin played very well in the first half of the match, and he had a good chance at the end as well, but we lacked rhythm, we were not fast enough, nor did we have width of the game. We corrected it by introducing Iago Falquea, who ‘stretched’ defense of Verona. We knew that it will be difficult on Bentegodi, it will be hard for all the other teams that come here as well. We could achieve more points, a collective approach was very good, and we are on the good track, but it was not enough to win against Verona, “said Garcia.He expects better performance and better efficiency of his attackers.“We could have played better in offense, we made some excess moves, however, the condition of this terrain stopped us from playing it at first,” said the coach of Roma.He particularly emphasized that Džeko needs some time to completely fit in the team.“We need to keep in mind that Edin has just recently arrived and he played only one friendly match with us, while Mohamed also had just a little time to adjust. Edin played at first in the first half of the match and that is what we were lacking on the other positions. Salah was close to score and he wanted to stay longer on the field, but the players need to know that I need all of them through the whole season,” concluded Garcia.
