first_imgThe international group of experts led by the WHO inspected two hospitals during their visit, including a makeshift one at a sports center, the National Health Commission said on Monday.They also met with top officials at the center for disease control for Hubei province, of which Wuhan is the capital.China has quarantined Wuhan and other cities in Hubei, blocking tens of millions of residents from traveling, since late January, to try and contain the virus.Most of the deaths have been in Wuhan. Experts from the World Health Organization have visited the locked-down central Chinese city at the epicenter of the deadly global coronavirus outbreak, Chinese authorities said Monday.The trip over the weekend is the first reported visit to Wuhan by the WHO since the virus emerged from the city of 11 million people late last year.The virus, which is suspected to have crossed from animals to humans at a market in Wuhan, has killed more than 2,500 people across China and spread around the world. The WHO team arrived in China more than a week ago to observe research and testing efforts, so they could then help with recommendations for fighting the epidemic, the National Health Council said previously.The WHO has praised Beijing for its handling of the epidemic.But China has been criticized at home for silencing early warnings from a whistleblower doctor who later died from the virus.China’s numbers of daily new infections have been on a downward trend, but health authorities have sowed confusion about the data by repeatedly changing counting methods.There have been more than 77,000 confirmed infections in China.Topics :last_img read more

Donald Trump won’t take on the PC police

This one was like someone hit us in our faces – and we deserved it.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp hopes his side’s stunning 3-0 defeat at Watford will serve as a lesson not to let their standards slip in the final few months of the season. Mohamed Salah reacts at the final whistle after Liverpool’s 3-0 defeat at Watford The Reds are still well on course for a first league title in 30 years with a commanding 22-point lead at the top of the table. But they were beaten for the first time in 45 Premier League games and in comprehensive fashion at Vicarage Road as Ismaila Sarr’s double and Troy Deeney’s measured finish completed a famous win for Watford. “Of course sometimes a little knock is important,” said Klopp. “So I don’t see anything negative in it. From time to time if you are not good enough you need to see effect.” Liverpool need a maximum of four wins from their last 10 games to guarantee the title but could still go on to win five trophies this season. The Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup have already been claimed, while Klopp’s men travel to Chelsea in the FA Cup fifth round on Tuesday and trail Atletico Madrid 1-0 from the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie. “We can start again with whatever we did before, and we will,” said Klopp. “We cannot say now we will react in this way or that. We have to show it in the next games.” Loading… last_img read more

Poyet unhappy with ref decisions

first_imgGus Poyet was left to rue a series of controversial decisions as Sunderland were denied a much-needed Barclays Premier League victory over West Brom. Asked about the goal, Poyet said: “It’s onside. It’s unfortunate from the linesman. You know what? I understand why he gave offside. Of course, in this situation when we needed it to go for us he made a mistake, but I am a little bit more disappointed with the other one, the red card. “I think it was an easy decision. The ref was not giving the foul, the foul was given by the linesman, so I think the call for the red card should be the linesman and not the referee. “What can I say without getting fined? It was unfortunate, the referee today.” West Brom boss Tony Pulis, however, was astonished to see a free-kick awarded, let alone a caution. He said: “I have seen old women in the high street take more of a knock and stay on their feet than what the lad did. It’s not even a free-kick, never mind Joleon getting booked.” Sunderland’s 13th league draw of the season extended their run without a goal to three games, and although they were comfortably the better side on a day when West Brom defended resiliently, but did little else, they were unable to fashion a breakthrough. Johnson’s disallowed strike looked to have done it and Baggies keeper Ben Foster pulled off important saves from Sebastian Larsson and substitute Connor Wickham either side of half-time, but chances were at a premium. The visitors were significantly less enterprising with James Morrison’s eighth-minute shot prompting keeper Costel Pantilimon’s only save, but it was they who left the Stadium of Light the happier. Head coach Poyet was convinced Baggies defender Joleon Lescott should have been sent off after being penalised for a fifth-minute foul on Danny Graham, and then saw a tight offside decision go against his team when Adam Johnson thought he had broken the deadlock in what proved to be a scrappy 0-0 draw. But it was the earlier incident which particularly disappointed the Uruguayan after referee Mike Jones initially waved play on before consulting assistant Constantine Hatzidakis and awarding a foul and a yellow card. Poyet said: “[It was] a case of trying everything and getting nothing, really. Performance, desire, commitment, going for it, it was spot-on. We needed a break, an action, a goal, a finish, a lucky goal or a right decision from the referee, and nothing. “You say in England ‘it wasn’t to be’ – it’s that kind of day. It was written in history that it was a 0-0 and we would be at the back of Match of the Day today again.” Pulis was understandably the happier boss after seeing the Baggies extend their run under him to one defeat in nine games in all competitions without playing as well as they have in recent weeks. He said: “The lads have done well. We have played really well in the last couple of weeks – we played really well against Swansea and played exceptionally well against West Ham, especially in possession of the ball, and we started well today. “But then we just fell away. The great thing about today is not playing as well as we have played, we still get something from the game and it’s very important that we do that from now until the end of the season. “We have got 12 games to go and we have to glean as many points as we possibly can out of those 12 games. We are in it with eight, nine, 10 other teams, so everybody is fighting for their lives. “I have done this a few times and you can never take your foot off the pedal. It’s going to be nip and tuck until the end of the season.” Press Associationlast_img read more
