Coronavirus: Three further deaths and 606 new cases as one million vaccines per month due from April

first_img Electric Picnic Coronavirus: Three further deaths and 606 new cases as one million vaccines per month due from April “While this clearly demonstrates that the vast majority of people are sticking with the public health guidance, it does represent a significant change versus January when just one in 20 people were visiting other homes for social reasons.“Please continue to stick with the public heath advice and avoid visiting other homes at this time – do not give this virus the opportunities it is seeking to spread.”Dr. Lorraine Nolan, Chief Executive Officer, Health Products Regulatory Authority said: “People can be assured about the transparency and honesty of the vaccines monitoring and approvals process.“Where there is any indication of concern in relation to side effects of a vaccine, even in a very small number of cases across the EU, we have seen that appropriate steps will be taken to ensure further investigation if needed.“There are risks associated with all vaccines but with COVID-19, the benefits of a vaccine far outweighs the risks for a very small number of cases. Rigorous monitoring and safety reporting is ongoing by the HPRA in partnership with our EU partners.“We have three safe and effective vaccines, Astra Zeneca, Pfizer and Moderna and we will shortly add the Johnson and Johnson vaccine to increase the roll out of protection against this highly transmissible disease.”Professor Philip Nolan, Chair of the NPHET Irish Epidemiological Modelling Advisory Group, said: “We are experiencing a levelling off in the daily incidence rate of COVID-19 and the concern is that we could so easily move backwards and undo the progress that has been hard-earned since the beginning of the year.“The pattern isn’t entirely clear and continues to be volatile, so we’ll be monitoring this quite carefully over the coming weeks.“It is important to remember that when the infection gets into a household the transmission rates are very high – up to one third of contacts within a household will subsequently become infected. It is critically important during this very volatile stage that we minimise our contacts where possible and follow public health advice.”Dr. Miriam Owens, Director of Public Health, HSE, said: “Today sees the opening of new walk-in test centres in areas of high transmission to enable increased ease of access to testing facilities for people who don’t have symptoms. If you do experience symptoms, I would encourage you to contact your GP to arrange a test as soon as possible.“Together we can break the chains of transmission of this infection, by washing our hands, keeping a safe distance and by avoiding all non-essential activity where you are mixing with others.”The COVID-19 Dashboard provides up-to-date information on the key indicators of COVID-19 in the community including daily data on Ireland’s COVID-19 Vaccination Programme.New Cases in LaoisMarch 24 – 6March 23 – 18March 22 – 8March 21 – 8March 20 – 10March 19 – 5March 18 – 16March 17 – 5March 16 – 6March 15 – 4March 14 – 2March 13 – 5March 12 – 3March 11 – 2March 10 – 814-day case rate in Laois per 100,000 populationMarch 24 – 116.9March 23 – 119.2March 22 – 99.2March 21 – 90.9March 20 – 85March 19 – 83.8March 18 – 83.8March 17 – 76.7March 16 – 77.9March 15 – 86.2March 14 – 81.5March 13 – 93.3March 12 – 103.9March 11 – 118.1March 10 – 133.4New cases in Laois during past 14 daysMarch 24 – 99March 23 – 101March 22 – 84March 21 – 77March 20 – 72March 19 – 71March 18 – 71March 17 – 65March 16 – 66March 15 – 73March 14 – 69March 13 – 79March 12 – 88March 11 – 100March 10 – 113One million vaccines per month in April, May and June Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly told the Dáil that there would be a “step change” in the vaccine roll-out from April.He told Sinn Féin’s health spokesperson David Cullinane that Ireland remains on track to have received 1.1 million vaccine doses by the end of this month, which would also mark the end of the first quarter.The minister cautioned, however, that this was assuming deliveries arrive on time.Ireland is expecting in excess of one million vaccine doses per month for April, May and June.SEE ALSO – Laois children forced to travel to Athlone for eye clinic service By Alan Hartnett – 25th March 2021 WhatsApp Twitter WhatsApp TAGSCoronavirusCovid-19 Twitter Electric Picnic organisers release statement following confirmation of new festival date There have been three further Coronavirus-related deaths and 606 new cases, according to figures released by the health authorities this evening.Of the deaths reported today, 2 occurred in March and 1 in February.Six of the cases announced are in Laois, meaning the county’s 14-day incidence rate has dropped from 119.2 to 116.9.Of the cases notified today:298 are men / 305 are women75% are under 45 years of ageThe median age is 33 years old249 in Dublin, 57 in Donegal, 39 in Kildare, 32 in Meath, 31 in Louth and the remaining 198 cases are spread across all other countiesAs of 8am today, 312 COVID-19 patients are hospitalised, of which 75 are in ICU. 24 additional hospitalisations in the past 24 hours.As of March 22nd 2021, 690,449 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in Ireland:503,796 people have received their first dose186,653 people have received their second doseDr. Ronan Glynn, Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health, said: “The vast majority of people are making a huge sacrifice and missing time with loved ones in order for us to stay on course with the public health guidance.“However, we know that in the week ending March 14th, approximately one-in-ten people visited another household for social reasons, with most of these visits involving time spent indoors.

Korean War from the Other Side

first_img Analysis & Opinion AvatarJeong Jae Sung SHARE Is Nuclear Peace with North Korea Possible? Analysis & Opinion Pence Cartoon: “KOR-US Karaoke” Tracking the “unidentified yellow substance” being dried out near the Yongbyon Nuclear Center Analysis & Opinioncenter_img Facebook Twitter The Korean War most of us know is the one suffered in the South. It usually starts with the invasion of Seoul then goes down to Daejon and Gwangju, then there is a counterattack on the Nakdong River and all the way back up to the Yalu River and then down to the 38th Parallel and an uneasy truce. But Kim Jin Chul (75), who experienced the Korean War in Pyongyang, has a different image embedded in his memory. The day the Korean War started was an ordinary day. People came and went with great urgency, but Kim and his family were watching out for the chance to go to South Korea. His family had come north because of his grandmother, who was sick in her Pyongsung home, and could not return. His mother said it was actually quite a good thing. “I knew that a war had broken out when I heard Kim Il Sung’s radio address on June 28th, where he announced, ‘We have captured Seoul after just four days following South Korea’s sneak attack’,” Kim recalls. He didn’t even know what war was, but after hearing from his mother that it is where ‘some people live and some people die’ his heart dropped.Just seven months after the outbreak of war Kim became an orphan. “I was trembling with fear,” he recalls. “My father and then mother both died in the bombing, but I still waited for them to come back. You have no idea how scared I was waiting for my mother.”Three days after the outbreak of war, President Truman approved support for the ROK army. On the 29th, the day after North Korea invaded Seoul, the U.S. mobilized B-29 Super Fortresses to bomb major cities including Pyongyang. Kim and his family went into the nearby mountains to escape. He lived with his grandfather, parents and younger sister in a hut. That August, his father lost his life in the bombing, but they never even found the body.His mother also died in January the same year. “My mother went to the factory where my father worked to ask for his salary,” he explains. “But she never returned again. One day her body came back to us but we could not recognize her.” After that, Kim went through three long years of suffering. He lived on handfuls of rice and grass. Even after the Armistice Agreement was signed on July 7th, 1953, his suffering did not stop. He entered elementary school but was mobilized to carry stones and soil to restore sites damaged in the war. We “carried stones and soil across mountains and rivers the whole day except for two hours,” he explains. It was a routine that continued until he graduated from vocational school in 1965. Thereafter, Kim lived as a worker. His visit to Pyongsung in 1948 had turned into a permanent change of residence. He was still there to feel the pain of starvation in the 1990s, and it took him a total of 64 years to defect and come back home, thinking about how late his arrival had become.

Three teenage workers die in industrial accident at the Sungri Motor…

Please direct any questions about her articles to [email protected] RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR North Korea Market Price Update: June 8, 2021 (Rice and USD Exchange Rate Only) Facebook Twitter News Hamhung man arrested for corruption while working at a state-run department store center_img News Amid North Korean government efforts to increase production throughout the country, several workers in their teens recently died in an industrial accident at the Sungri Motor Complex, Daily NK has learned.According to a Daily NK source in South Pyongan Province yesterday, several workers at the complex were seriously injured in an accident involving equipment at the factory. The workers were taken to a local hospital, but three ultimately died.Daily NK was unable to identify how many workers were injured or killed due to the accident, but the source said that at least five people were injured.Apart from the three workers who died, the remaining workers are being treated at the hospital, but all are in critical condition due to their injuries.The accident occurred when an irregular electrical current flowing into old and dilapidated equipment suddenly spiked, according to the source.All of the workers who were injured were 17-year-olds and recent high school graduates. They had recently been assigned to jobs at the complex.The source told Daily NK that one of the reasons the accident occurred was because the workers had failed to receive proper training on how to use the equipment and were unfamiliar with how to handle it.Pyongyang carA car on the streets of Pyongyang. / Image: Lawrence Wang, Creative Commons, Flickr“They were immediately placed into their jobs without any proper explanation [about how to work the equipment] as part of efforts to quickly increase production,” the source said.The work unit involved in the accident had few experienced workers. They had also been experiencing trouble with working with dilapidated equipment, according to the source.The authorities had placed teenage workers into the Sungri Motor Complex to help improve the factory’s lack of personnel; however, this recent accident will likely add to the plant’s personnel shortage problems.The complex’s managers have ordered all workers at the plant to keep quiet about the incident, but locals living near the factory quickly heard about it because it involved injury to several people, along with three deaths.Locals are expressing sadness over the deaths of the teenagers and are blaming the outdated equipment and irregular electricity current for the accident. In short, they believe that responsibility for the accident is at the feet of the complex’s managers and North Korean authorities.“Old equipment can’t be turned into new equipment and you can’t turn up the supply of electricity when there is none, no matter how much you talk about self-reliance,” the source said, adding, “These type accidents occur because [the authorities] are just calling for an increase in production without supplying proper equipment or [good] work environments.”Please direct any comments or questions about this article to [email protected] in Korean SHARE North Korea hikes “party contributions” Russia-based workers must pay by 30-55%last_img read more

Sun Life plans new seg fund offerings

first_img Megan Harman Empire Life launches three new seg funds “In Canada, we’ve been investing significantly in individual wealth over the past three years,” he said. As part of its efforts to expand in this market, the company is preparing to launch a new proprietary seg fund platform in spring 2015. “This is a big market, and we believe that we will grow to be a major player over time,” said Kevin Dougherty, president of Sun Life Financial Canada. “We’re excited about the potential here.” Sun Life’s existing line of seg funds, called SunWise, were developed under an agreement with CI Investments Inc., which manages the funds. With that agreement having come to an end, Sun Life recognized an opportunity to develop a line of funds in-house, according to Connor. “We’ve come off…a very successful partnership with CI Investments, where we’ve co-developed products that have done a really good job for clients,” he said. “With the conclusion of our agreement with CI…we’re free to develop our own seg fund products.” Once the new funds launch, the SunWise funds will be closed to new purchases, although existing policyholders will still be able to make additional deposits. The new line of funds will provide Sun Life with full autonomy over the products, Dougherty said. “It makes more sense for us to have complete control of the marketing, the distribution and the manufacturing of the seg fund product. That’s what all the other insurance companies do,” he said. “It’s simpler, and it fits more with our strategy.” Sun Life will also be able to leverage the mutual fund platform that it launched three years ago, Sun Life Global Investments, as it develops its new seg fund lineup. “Sun Life Global Investments will play a prominent role on the platform, but there will be other funds available as well,” Dougherty said. Seg funds continue to have appeal in the Canadian market, given their unique estate planning features and other advantages, Dougherty said. He noted that across the industry, sales rose to $13.1 billion in 2014, up from $10.8 billion in 2013. “Seg funds have a strong place in the Canadian insurance market,” he said. “Used right, it’s a very powerful tool for advisors.” The new line of funds will round out Sun Life’s broader individual wealth offerings, including mutual funds and annuities. The company’s career sales force, which now has more than 2,500 dual-licensed advisors, has been an important distribution channel for these products, the executives said. “Wealth sales have been growing at over 20% in this channel as advisors move more and more to holistic financial planning and benefit from more and more product breadth,” Dougherty said. The career sales force has also been a key factor in helping Sun Life grow its individual insurance sales in Canada, Dougherty added. “In individual insurance, we have continued to grow our sales, both in market share and in absolute terms, where others have actually struggled in recent times,” he said. Specifically, Dougherty pointed to figures showing that Sun Life’s insurance sales increased to $303 million in 2014 from $275 million in 2013, and the company’s market share rose to 19.1% in 2014 from 17.8% in 2013. Sun Life is also focused on expanding sales through its network of independent advisors, the executives said. In particular, the company has aggressively grown its team of wholesale staff members on the wealth side in the past couple of years, and as a result, sales of wealth products through third party distribution channels grew to $827 million in 2014 from $438 million in 2012.

Security State Minister Lauds Inmate Work Project

first_imgSecurity State Minister Lauds Inmate Work Project UncategorizedDecember 13, 2007 RelatedSecurity State Minister Lauds Inmate Work Project Advertisements RelatedSecurity State Minister Lauds Inmate Work Projectcenter_img FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Minister of State in the Ministry of National Security, Senator Arthur Williams, has lauded the Inmate Work Project, noting that it provides the opportunity to rehabilitate prisoners and cut down on the recidivism rate.He said that very often “the reason why they (prisoners) re-offend is that they come out with nothing and nowhere to go and not much to do, but if we can let them work and acquire enough to give them a start when they leave the institutions, then we will be doing our part in ensuring that re-offending is kept at a minimum.”The Senator was speaking at the meeting of the Prisoner Rehabilitation Committee, which will oversee the Inmate Public Work Project, on (Dec. 12) at the Medallion Hall Hotel.He pointed out that the prisoners, who participate in the work programme, are paid a stipend, “so not only will they have something while they are in institutions, but something can be put aside for them when they leave the institution.”Senator Williams noted that while the work programme has to date focussed on the clean-up of public places, “there are a whole range of skills in the penal institutions that can be utilised for the benefit of the society and we do not have to confine ourselves to bushing and cleaning. There are a range of things that can be done utilizing the work from the prisoners.”Stating that the Government is committed to the rehabilitation of persons in the country’s correctional facilities, Senator Williams said “we do not believe that our correctional centres should be places of punishment. We believe that rehabilitation must be the focus”.In the meantime, Major Richard Reese, Commissioner of Corrections, noted that the Inmate Work Project provides an opportunity to engage inmates in productive activity and instil in them, good work ethics. More than 50 moderate to low-risk inmates from three adult correctional facilities island wide have been selected to participate in the project, which aims to clean and beautify certain public places.Launched by Senator Williams on November 7, the programme is being implemented by the Department of Correctional Services as part of its rehabilitation effort.The work programme, which has as its theme: ‘Rehabilitation – Investment for the future,’ is being carried out in two phases, with phase one, which was carried out over six weeks in the parishes of Kingston, St. Catherine, St. Mary and Manchester ending today (Dec.13). Phase 2 will run for 12-week periods throughout the year beginning on January 7, 2008. RelatedSecurity State Minister Lauds Inmate Work Projectlast_img read more
