The youngest was an 11-year-old girl in Pamekasan regency, who died with dengue shock syndrome as the comorbidity factor, he added.”Around 75 percent of fatalities are among those in their 40s to 60s,” he said.As of Saturday, East Java saw 267 confirmed COVID-19 cases with 26 fatalities and 65 recoveries.Topics : “Not only do men have more of a chance of being infected, but they also have a higher mortality rate from the virus infection. This might be because men go out from home more often than women do,” Kohar told The Jakarta Post on Sunday.He, however, said the gender proportion of the confirmed cases and the fatalities could change in the future as the outbreak had yet to reach its peak. Based on the task force data, 82 percent, 18 out of 22 individuals, of those who died with the virus had comorbidity factors.Kohar said the youngest among those who died without comorbidity was aged between 20 and 29 years of age, without specifying the exact age of the fatality. Men are more vulnerable than women to COVID-19 in East Java, according to the province’s COVID-19 task force.East Java COVID-19 task force tracing team head Kohar Hari Santoso said that as of Friday 154 out of 252 COVID-19 cases, 61 percent, in the province were male.The task force data also revealed that males made up 77 percent of the COVID-19 fatalities in East Java, with 17 male patients dying out of a total of 22 deaths.
WEST LIBERTY, Iowa (July 8) – The Deery Brothers Summer Series got its first repeat winner and Justin Kay gave himself a bit more breathing room in the IMCA Late Model tour points race Tuesday night. Kay got the better of Nick Marolf in a back-and-forth battle at West Liberty Raceway that saw the frontrunners swap the lead six times over the course of 40 caution-free laps. The win paid $3,000 and was the Deery career fifth for Kay. Kyle Hinrichs regained third late in the race from defending series champion Brian Harris. Completing the top five was Andy Eckrich, still second but now nine points behind Kay in the standings. Kay started third and followed the inside groove while Marolf drew the pole and ran a line higher. Marolf’s longest stint in the lead covered laps 14 through 28. Three lapped cars separated Kay and Marolf at the finish. Kay’s first tour victory this season came on May 4 at Quad City Speedway. Tire samples were taken from each of the top two so race results from Tuesday remain unofficial. Darrel DeFrance was the $250 Sunoco Race Fuels feature qualifying drawing winner at West Liberty. Richie Gustin, already on the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot, was the fastest in a field of 24 IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modifieds and earned $1,000.
