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.
Students at the demonstration told Reuters Grace’s academic performance was not unique as the country grapples with the coronavirus pandemic.“A lot of people were behind on their work this semester, no one had motivation to do anything because the teachers weren’t teaching and we were all online. I know so many people that didn’t do their homework,” said Prudence Canter, 18, a graduating senior at the school.“It didn’t seem like the judge or the caseworker knew how grades and due dates and things were structured during the pandemic shutdown in the spring,” Geoff Wickersham, a social studies teacher at Grove, told Reuters at the protest. “I think this is a huge injustice.”Speakers asked protesters to raise their hands if they had ever failed to turn in an assignment at some point and every person raised their hands. Hundreds of Detroit-area students turned out in protest outside their high school Thursday calling for the release of a classmate who is in juvenile detention after not completing schoolwork during remote learning this past semester.The 15-year-old student, called Grace in the original ProPublica report that highlighted her situation, was on probation for fighting with her mother and stealing. ProPublica reported that Grace, who has attention deficit disorder, was easily distracted when studying at home and fell behind during remote learning. A Michigan circuit court judge sent Grace to juvenile detention in May, citing the schoolwork as a probation violation.On Thursday afternoon, protesters assembled at Groves High School in the suburb of Beverley Hills before they drove to the Oakland County’s Circuit Court and prosecutor’s office holding up signs with calls to “Free Grace.” The prosecutor’s office declined to comment. Judge Mary Ellen Brennan, who handed down the ruling, was not immediately available for comment.Oakland County Executive David Coulter posted a statement online Tuesday night, writing that he had spoken to the judge.“While there are many more details that she is unable to share with me and the public to protect privacy of the minor and their family, I believe a review of this case within her court or during an appellate process is required,” Coulter wrote.Congressional Representative Andy Levin wrote online that children should not be locked up for not doing their homework.“The prosecution’s only witness was unaware of the student’s learning disabilities. Witnesses who could have provided a better understanding of the situation, like the student’s teachers, were unable to testify,” Levin wrote. Topics :
