UN says $1billion needed to fight Ebola

first_imgHealthInternationalLifestylePrint UN says $1billion needed to fight Ebola by: – September 16, 2014 Sharing is caring! GENEVA, (AFP) – Nearly $1.0 billion dollars is needed to fight the Ebola outbreak raging in west Africa, the United Nations said Tuesday, more than doubling the estimate it made less than a month ago.UN humanitarian chief Valerie Amos told reporters in Geneva there was a “huge funding challenge”, warning that “if not dealt with effectively now, Ebola could become a major humanitarian crisis in countries currently affected.”The response to the crisis will require $987.8 million (763 million Euros), with about half needed for the worst-hit country, Liberia, the UN said in its response plan.It stressed there were some 22 million people living in the three countries most affected by the outbreak.The UN announcement came as the death toll from the worst-ever Ebola epidemic rose to 2,461, out of 4,985 cases in the three west African countries that have borne the brunt of the disease, according to fresh figures from the World Health Organisation.The UN document estimates that some 20,000 people could be infected with Ebola by the end of the year, with Guinea accounting for 16 per cent of infections, Sierra Leone 34 percent and Liberia a full 40 per cent.If the international community and affected countries respond swiftly and energetically, transmission should begin to slow by the end of the year and end by mid-2015, the document said.“This health crisis we face is unparallelled in modern times,” WHO’s emergency chief Bruce Aylward said at a joint press conference.“We don’t know where the numbers are going,” he said, pointing out that two weeks ago when WHO said it needed the capacity to manage 20,000 cases, “that seemed like a lot”.“That does not seem like a lot today,” Aylward said.While it was difficult to estimate accurately how many people might become infected and die going forward, Aylward said WHO believed “the numbers can be kept in the tens of thousands, but that is going to require a much faster escalation of the response if we’re to beat the escalation of the virus”.Associated Free Press Share Tweetcenter_img Share Share 132 Views   no discussionslast_img read more

EPL break brought welcome respite for players, says Klopp

first_imgThe first ever Premier League mid-season break pleased Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp as it allowed the runaway leaders to rest their aches and pains following the hectic festive period.Advertisement The 52-year-old German takes his players to bottom-placed Norwich on Saturday holding a 22 point lead over two-time defending champions Manchester City. Klopp said the break will have done his squad the world of good as he knew from his own playing experience.“I was a player myself. When I look back it feels like I played through 80% of the time with pain,” he said at his eve of match press conference.“Nobody appreciated that because I played bad so it didn’t help. Nobody asked then. It is completely normal for a professional football player to play through pain.“After that long period in December-January, there was no player in the squad who had no pain. Everybody had something.”Klopp – whose Champions League holders travel to Atletico Madrid next week in their last 16 first leg clash – has also been boosted by the return to fitness from hamstring injuries of Senegal attacker Sadio Mane and veteran James Milner.Sane has missed the last four matches while Milner has been out since January 5.“Millie (Milner) and Sadio are back. When they are back you consider them immediately,” said Klopp.“Apart from (Xherdan) Shaqiri, (Nathaniel) Clyne and (Paul) Glatzel, all the players are in training.“We have some good options. Hopefully it stays like this for the rest of the season.”Klopp says Norwich may be struggling at the bottom – they are seven points adrift of safety – but he is full of respect for their adventurous style of play.Jurgen Klopp says the mid-season break has been a boost for his Liverpool playersRead Also: Liverpool’s new Nike kit deal could have impact on Klopp’s pre-season plans“I really admire that Norwich stick to their principles. It’s really good football, super coaching,” Klopp said.“You can see all the patterns on the pitch, all the movements – that’s from the training ground. They’ve caused 95% of all teams real problems.“They’ve lost a lot of these games, that’s why they’re in the situation they are, but for me, on the outside, it looks like a club that really sticks together.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Promoted ContentWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?The Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

PFA boss expects Saido Berahino to withdraw West Brom strike threat

first_img Berahino tweeted his vow never to play under Baggies chairman Jeremy Peace again after the club rejected a number of bids from Tottenham towards the end of the transfer window. But with the 22-year-old reportedly set to return to training on Sunday, Professional Footballers’ Association chief executive Taylor said he was confident there was little chance of Berahino following up on his threat. Saido Berahino will back down on his strike threat and return to action with West Brom, according to players’ union boss Gordon Taylor. Taylor told BBC Radio Five Live’s Sportsweek: “He will be playing. We have made contact with both the club and the player and we are very hopeful the matter will be resolved.” Taylor went on to add his voice to calls for the summer transfer window to be closed before the start of the new season. This year’s overlap saw a number of top players left in limbo while clubs fought over their respective futures, with John Stones also making clear his desire to quit Everton for Chelsea. Taylor added: “I think to have the window open once the season starts has created some very frenzied activity and left a lot of good players who should have been on the pitch not playing. “John Stones had to cope with a lot as Everton – as was their right – wanted to keep him. “We have fought long and hard to have players literally free.. but that comes at the end of their contract, and before that happens it needs two clubs to agree.” Club officials expect Berahino to report back for training on Monday morning, Press Association Sport understands. It will be the first time the Burundi-born player has linked up with his team-mates since being given leave in the wake of the deadline day furore. And the Baggies clearly expect Berahino to be available for their Barclays Premier League clash with Southampton on Saturday. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Gonzales dominates Angels with 4-hitter in Mariners’ 2-1 win

first_img COMMENT FOLLOW US First Published: 1st September, 2020 06:06 IST WATCH US LIVE LIVE TV Associated Press Television News center_img SUBSCRIBE TO US Written By Last Updated: 1st September, 2020 06:06 IST Gonzales Dominates Angels With 4-hitter In Mariners’ 2-1 Win Marco Gonzales retired 21 consecutive Angels while throwing a four-hitter, and Jose Marmolejos hit a tiebreaking homer in the sixth inning of the Seattle Mariners’ 2-1 victory over Los Angeles on Monday. Marco Gonzales retired 21 consecutive Angels while throwing a four-hitter, and Jose Marmolejos hit a tiebreaking homer in the sixth inning of the Seattle Mariners’ 2-1 victory over Los Angeles on Monday.Gonzales (4-2) had eight strikeouts and didn’t walk a batter until the ninth inning of his second career complete game. After Justin Upton’s leadoff homer in the second inning, Gonzales retired every batter he faced until pinch-hitter Shohei Ohtani’s leadoff single in the ninth.Andrelton Simmons followed Ohtani with another single, but Mike Trout hit a line drive right at third baseman Kyle Seager for a double play. Anthony Rendon drew Gonzales’ first walk of the day on four pitches, but Albert Pujols popped out meekly to shortstop to end Gonzales’ third victory over the Angels already this season.Marmolejos and Jake Fraley had two hits apiece as the Mariners rallied to split a four-game series at the Big A after losing the first two.Both of these AL West clubs are outside the playoff picture, which turned them into sellers at Monday’s trade deadline. Seattle made multiple big moves that led to the departures of closer Taylor Williams, catcher Austin Nola and relievers Austin Adams and Dan Altavilla, while the Angels dealt big leaguers Tommy La Stella, Brian Goodwin and Jason Castro.Gonzales worked quickly and decisively while throwing 102 pitches in an overwhelming performance that underlined his ace status for Seattle — particularly when he’s facing the Angels, who have no answers for left-handed pitchers of his caliber.Simmons singled to lead off the first inning, but it was actually a popup that got lost in the sun, and Gonzales retired the next three Angels.Upton then connected in the second inning for his fourth homer of the season. The veteran outfielder appears to be emerging from a horrific slump that included just two hits over four weeks, and Goodwin’s departure likely means everyday playing time for Upton in September.But the Angels didn’t get another baserunner until Ohtani’s broken-bat single in the ninth.Seattle tied it in the third when Fraley tripled to right and scored on a single by Joseph Odom, who’s likely to play more regularly with Nola’s departure.Marmolejos put the Mariners ahead with his third homer in five days, connecting off reliever Matt Andriese (1-2) after Jaime Barria pitched five-hit ball into the fifth inning of a spot start for the Angels.Jahmai Jones made his major league debut as a pinch-runner for Simmons in the ninth inning.TRAINER’S ROOMMariners: Dylan Moore could rejoin the active roster this week, manager Scott Servais said. He has been out for 10 days with a sprained right wrist. … C Tom Murphy isn’t close to making his season debut after breaking a bone in his foot. That means the Mariners will go with rookies Odom and Joe Hudson as their catchers, at least until new acquisition Luis Torrens is ready to play.Angels: Breakout 2B David Fletcher missed his first game of the season after twisting his left ankle while trying to beat out a grounder Sunday. Fletcher’s injury isn’t thought to be a long-term issue.UP NEXTMariners: They’re headed home to Seattle, but won’t play until Thursday at the earliest. The first two games of a series with the Oakland Athletics have been postponed after a positive COVID-19 test in the A’s organization.Angels: After a day off, Julio Teherán (0-2, 9.17 ERA) returns to the Halos’ rotation on Wednesday night as they open an interleague series with the San Diego Padres at Angel Stadium.(Image Credit: AP) last_img read more
