first_img“This format matches the international protocol and records the weaknesses and areas for improvement, a process in which the injured party is usually the health personnel, including doctors and nurses who have died,” Marte said to Dominican digital newspaper El Día. The Military Hospital is an advanced health center with the technological resources to assist patients infected with Ebola, according to Daniel Pou, a researcher at the Latin American Faculty of Social Sciences. Regional training to fight Ebola The training exercise began at 10:00 am when the immigration area of Las Americas International Airport assisted a passenger from Sierra Leone, Africa, who was showing symptoms of the virus– typically a high fever, headache, and sore throat. On October 10, the FARD medical community discussed the best ways to diagnose and treat patients infected with the deadly virus during the conference “Management and Protocols of Ebola.” Medical personnel at the conference also discussed how to identify Ebola symptoms and the safest methods to transport people infected with the virus. The conference was held at the Military Hospital. A well-prepared military hospital The goal of the drill was “to review and evaluate procedures for identification, isolation, transportation and handling of patients suspected of having Ebola,” said Dr. Jorge Marte Baez, the country’s national coordinator for Ebola response. Once they realized they were dealing with a possible case of Ebola, airport and health authorities immediately activated a predetermined procedure applied at airports and seaports to isolate those individuals who show symptoms of the disease. Wearing protective gear and using the appropriate safety measures, members of AMET transferred the ailing man to the Simulation Training Center for Ebola and Infectious Diseases at the Dr. Ramón de Lara Military Hospital, located in the San Isidro Air Base, east of the capital. There, doctors and nurses who are trained to treat Ebola, staff members from the Ministry of Public Health, and FARD officers followed protocols to provide the appropriate medical care. The Dominican Air Force mobilized a rapid response to a simulated spread of the deadly Ebola virus into the country during a training exercise on November 7. A well-prepared military hospital Preventing the spread of Ebola “The experience that military doctors have in the area of (disease) prevention and protecting public health is crucial,” according to Pou. Doctors and nurses were selected for this training based on their medical expertise, teaching experience and commitment to serve. Health staffs will be prepared to detect early cases of Ebola that may arise, offer treatment and prevent the spread of the disease. They could also be mobilized by WHO/PAHO to support the clinical response and control of outbreaks in any country in the region affected by Ebola, according to Notimex.

The Dominican Republic has “mounted an isolation area and an amazing training center,” said Monica Guardo, a special representative of WHO/PAHO. The goal of the drill was “to review and evaluate procedures for identification, isolation, transportation and handling of patients suspected of having Ebola,” said Dr. Jorge Marte Baez, the country’s national coordinator for Ebola response. Responding to an infected ‘patient’ The Military Hospital is an advanced health center with the technological resources to assist patients infected with Ebola, according to Daniel Pou, a researcher at the Latin American Faculty of Social Sciences. In addition to the efforts of the Dominican Republic’s medical community, PAHO is training doctors and nurses in Latin American countries in the clinical management of Ebola from December 1-December 11, Notimex reported. Workshops for the Dominican Republic, Bahamas, Barbados, Jamaica, and Trinidad and Tobago will take place in Antigua and Barbuda from December 1-3. Professionals from the remaining Latin American countries will attend workshops from December 3-11 in Chile. FARD pilot, Maj. Gen. Elvis M. Féliz Pérez, discussed the patient’s condition and the measures needed to keep the civilian population safe with Col. Ramon H. Artiles Santamaría, director of the Military Hospital. The Dominican Air Force mobilized a rapid response to a simulated spread of the deadly Ebola virus into the country during a training exercise on November 7. In the drill, an infected individual entered the country at the Las Americas International Airport. The Air Force responded quickly to protect the civilian population and provide appropriate medical care to the patient, all in coordination with two civilian agencies — the Specialized Airport and Civil Aviation Security Corps (CESAC) and the Civil Defense, Immigration and Metropolitan Transportation Authority (AMET).

As a consequence of the exercise, medical authorities have developed several recommendations to prepare for a real case of Ebola, such as increasing the amount of protective equipment available for doctors and nurses who treat patients infected with the deadly virus. The Dominican Republic has “mounted an isolation area and an amazing training center,” said Monica Guardo, a special representative of WHO/PAHO. About 70 medical personnel, who had trained for the drill for 25 days, participated in the exercise. As of November 28, the World Health Organization (WHO) had documented more than 16,000 cases of Ebola in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia, with about 6,900 deaths. There have been no confirmed cases in Latin America.

Messi to part company with Barca after contract breakdown

first_imgBarcelona superstar Lionel Messi’s contract at the Camp Nou is due to expire next summer.Advertisement Messi has taken complete advantage of Barca’s incompetent board and the fans’ love for him to a point where he is perhaps considered bigger than the club. Josep Maria Bartomeu seems have a very slouchy personality and does not seem to be the kind of a president who will confront a player’s constant demanding like Florentino Perez did to Cristiano Ronaldo.At the Catalan club, things have gone absolutely haywire with Messi being in the thick of it more often than not since the turn of the calendar five months ago. The year didn’t start off well as Ernesto Valverde was fired from his position, but things got worse when Eric Abidal commented that the players didn’t work hard under the Basque manager. The winger was quick to take to his Instagram handle and rip into the sporting director, when internally things could’ve been solved peacefully.Eric Abidal may not be the club’s sporting director next season and probably even the former left back is himself aware of the fact that he could be sacked from the position after a verbal duel with Messi. Having said that, the club’s captain once again took to social media to report a cut of wages owing to the coronavirus some weeks ago and reported the news even before Barca’s official website could. Such is the audacity of the little man, who is definitely taking complete leeway of being the club’s greatest and most significant personality ever.Over the last couple of months, Messi has been endlessly pushing the board of directors to complete a much-needed revamp but it’s being said that the Argentinian is having more of a say in who must arrive and who should not as compared to Quique Setien. This has created conflicts internally with several players speaking up against his dictatorship.Josep Maria Bartomeu has not talked to the 32-year-old in a very blunt manner amid all that’s going on, but he too would be fed up of how much interference Messi wants to have. That being said, the Blaugrana are anyway not in a situation to meet his financial demands which inflate every year or two and are willing to let go of their man amid constant quarrels, Don Balon says.Read Also: Ronaldo set for Turin return as jet finally landed in MadeiraUntil the next year, when Messi’s contract expires and he is possibly free to walk, Bartomeu may be the Barca president but in his final few days and it would be interesting to see how the elections pan out and whether Joan Laporta has a different lookout over the situation. Nevertheless, there would be no shortage of suitors for the all-time Barcelona top scorer.Inter Milan reportedly will be ready to accommodate the Barca superstar on their roster should matters go their way and Newell’s Old Boys, the player’s first club will always have its doors open to the one who has become the world’s best on his second venture. The MLS continues to be an attractive destination too, but Messi has stayed coy on playing in the USFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 The Argentina international has been at the club for practically all his life and a few years ago there seemed to be no doubt that he would stay there until the boots needed to be hung. However, things have changed drastically over the past couple of months.
