A four-month pregnant nurse suspected of having COVID-19 in Surabaya, East Java, died on Monday after receiving treatment at two different hospitals, officials reported. Ari Puspita Sari, 26, had been working at Royal Hospital for a little over a year treating non-COVID-19 patients.According to hospital spokesperson Dewa Nyoman Sutanaya, Ari was admitted and treated there for three days after showing symptoms of COVID-19. As her condition kept deteriorating, she was referred to Dr. Ramelan Navy Hospital (RSAL), also in Surabaya, on Friday. Fifty-nine nurses have been confirmed to have COVID-19, while 48 others are suspected of having the disease.“The data might not be factual as [the patients stepped forward] voluntarily. There might be many nurses who do not report their status,” he said, indicating that the actual number of nurses with COVID-19 might be bigger than the collected data.President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo expressed his condolences on Ari’s death through his official Facebook account.“I heard the sad news about Ari Puspita Sari, a nurse at the Royal Hospital Surabaya who passed away with her baby,” he wrote. “My heart goes out to Ari, doctors and other medical workers, as well as those who work on the frontline, battling COVID-19.”A 52-second video showing a patient being taken to a hospital isolation unit by medical staff in hazmat suits previously went viral on social media.The video, posted by a Facebook user named Bayou Prakoso on Facebook on Monday, was captioned: “A nurse of Royal Hospital in Surabaya, positive for COVID-19 and four months pregnant, has little chance to survive as she already depends on a respirator. Please pray for this mother and her baby.”Several other medical workers were seen calling Ari’s name from afar as she was wheeled into an elevator under tight COVID-19 protocols.  Topics :last_img read more

Cazenovia volleyball upended by Cortland comeback

first_imgSimply put, the Chittenango girls volleyball team is not accustomed to regular-season defeats.The Bears’ sheer dominance in recent Section III winter season championship runs included long stretches where it would not so much as give up a set to an opponent.All of that changed last Tuesday night against Cortland, where Chittenango seemed on the way to another big win, only to get shocked by the Purple Tigers in five sets. Tags: Chittenangovolleyball Each of the first two sets was close and hard-fought, yet each time the Bears got the key points late, winning those sets 25-23 and 25-22.Somehow, Cortland absorbed this and claimed the third set 25-21. Then it pulled away 25-15 in the fourth, setting up a tense final set where, on this occasion, the Purple Tigers got the points that mattered.Winning that final set in another 25-21 decision, Cortland had Kayci Olson earn 27 kills and 25 digs, while Lexi Zacek and Marissa Parzynski each had 10 kills and combined for 32 digs. Grace Call amassed 48 assists and 13 digs as Tori Cruz got 25 digs.center_img On Chittenango’s side, Bayla Cutrie had 12 kills, eight assists and 10 digs, with Sarah Martin getting 10 kills and 17 digs.Savannah Penoyer (22 digs) and Tori Foran (21 digs) led the Bears’ defense as Carolyn Myka had 17 assists and 10 digs, with Jada Masciat adding four kills, three blocks and nine digs.The irony was that Chittenango’s next match was at Tully on Thursday, against a Black Knights foe long accustomed to success, but who had just taken its own defeat earlier in the week, a three-set sweep by Onondaga.Showing its resilience, the Bears would top Tully in four sets, dropping a close opener 25-23, but then taking the second set 25-21. The third and fourth sets both ended 25-23 in Chittenango’s favor.Able to claim most of the important points in those last three sets, the Bears had Cutrie earn 20 assists and Myka get 19 assists, passing it to a variety of front-line players, Cutrie adding 10 digs and six kills, too.Penoyer put up 11 kills, plus 13 digs. Masciat had eight kills, with Martin getting seven kills and 11 digs. Chelsea Lamphere gained five kills as Gabby Cutrie earned 10 digs.Chittenango plays just once this week, hosting Faith Heritage on Tuesday as a Thursday match with Onondaga was pushed back to Jan. 11, just as a match with Pulaski set for last week got moved to Jan. 28.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story last_img read more

Syracuse men’s soccer opponent preview: What to know about Massachusetts

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on August 26, 2016 at 12:22 pm Contact Matthew: mguti100@syr.edu | @MatthewGut21 No. 6 Syracuse kicks off its season against Massachusetts Friday at 7 p.m. at SU Soccer Stadium as part of the Central New York Classic. The Orange comes off its most successful season in program history, one in which it advanced to the national semifinal match, won the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament and posted a 16-5-4 mark. In UMass head coach Fran O’Leary’s first season in 2015, the Minutemen finished 5-13-1 but won three of its last six games.SU beat both UC Riverside and Rutgers in last year’s Central New York Classic, outscoring its opponents 6-2. This month, SU went 1-0-2 in exhibition play while the Minutemen went 1-1.Here’s what you need to know ahead of Friday night’s match.All-time series: Syracuse leads 2-0Last time they played: The Orange scored three goals in a 17-minute span to win 3-0 at home. In the 2013 midseason contest, now-senior Chris Nanco had two shots on goal. UMass was amid a seven-game losing streak and without a win on the season. Beating UMass gave Syracuse its third straight win. The Orange finished that year, its inaugural year in the ACC, 10-7-1.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Massachusetts report: Returning nine starters, the Minutemen’s biggest strength is its defense. Its senior keeper, Jorge Becerra, and several defenders who have played significant minutes return. Sophomore Brandon Merklin played all but 36 minutes in his freshman campaign. He started all 19 contests and logged a team-high 1,674 minutes, earning him the team’s Rookie of the Year honor. Defenders Josh Jess and Clement Benhaddouche also anchor the defense.Only four players on last year’s team scored two or more goals. Two of those players are gone, leaving senior Ty Goncalves and sophomore Kevin Boino as the team’s primary offensive threats.This is a very talented team and strong program, Syracuse head coach Ian McIntyre said. With a different coach and players, Umass may look more like its team of 2007 than that of 2015.“They press, they win the ball back, they got some players that can hurt you,” McIntyre said.How Syracuse beats Massachusetts: The Orange should be able hold UMass’ offense in check. But SU players noted the Minutemen’s athleticism and said not allowing dribblers more than two or three uninterrupted touches will be SU’s main focus on the defensive end Friday night.The Orange will win this match by scoring, just as it did the last time these two teams played three years ago.Stats to know:57 — Percent of goal-scoring Syracuse has lost from last year’s team, notably its top-two scorers Julian Buescher and Ben Polk.7 — Number of starters the Orange returns this year, including the entire defense.14 — Number of goals the Minutemen scored last year, about one-third of Syracuse’s 44-goal season and second-to-last in the Atlantic 10 Conference.Player to watch: Andrew BarrowmanThe freshman forward has yet to play a regular season match, but McIntyre singled him out as a big-time scoring threat. In high school, he trained with the U.S. under-17 national team. Earlier this week the 6-foot-1, 160-pounder was named to the Atlantic 10 preseason All-Rookie team. Commentslast_img read more
