UK records first coronavirus death, moves to stop spread

first_imgBritain is moving into the second of four phases in its plan to tackle the spread of coronavirus, England’s Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty said on Thursday, as the UK recorded its first death of a patient and confirmed cases rose.Britain has so far registered 115 cases of the coronavirus known as COVID-19, which started in China, but has held off from introducing measures to restrict movement or cancel large gatherings for fear of hurting the economy.Whitty said in a statement later that the person who died was an older patient with underlying health conditions. Prime Minister Boris Johnson says he is optimistic that Britain is well prepared to cope with the spread of the virus, but early on Thursday regional airline Flybe became one of the first big corporate casualties of the outbreak.Health minister Matt Hancock said the coming weeks would be tough. But with calm heads and clear determination, together we can see it through”.The government set out its action plan earlier this week based on four stages: containing the virus; delaying its transmission; researching its origins and mitigating its impact.Questioned by lawmakers earlier on Thursday, Whitty said Britain had mainly moved into the second stage and was now considering measures to try to delay the peak of an epidemic which officials are anticipating in the coming weeks. Topics :center_img “The original plan … was very much predicated on the idea of ‘if it could be controlled in China and contained everywhere else, this virus might go away’. I think the chances of that happening are now very slim. Slim to zero,” Whitty said.”As time goes by, we then may start to move into the more socially determined actions … We’ve moved from a situation where we were mainly in contain … to now we’re basically mainly delay.”Johnson was briefed after a meeting of Britain’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies, his spokesman said.”It is now highly likely that the virus is going to spread in a significant way,” the spokesman said. “Officials will therefore accelerate work on preparations for the ‘delay’ phase of the government’s plan, focusing on steps we could take to seek to delay the spread of the virus.”The government has said it could encourage home-working, cancel large-scale gatherings and possibly close schools to slow its spread and delay the peak of the outbreak until later in the year, when the health service is under less pressure.Whitty also said that with older people more vulnerable to the virus, there may be measures announced to encourage them to stay away from public places, such as the upper house of parliament, the House of Lords.Jacob Rees-Mogg, the leader of the lower house of parliament, told lawmakers there were no plans to close the House of Commons. last_img read more

Terrill)ExpandLOS ANGELES — Landry Shamet said he and his teammates have done some soul-searching of late about why they’ve struggled to maintain their edge against teams that don’t share the Clippers’ great expectations.“We’ve had those conversations,” Shamet said after Tuesday’s shootaround, when the Clippers’ focus was inward instead of cramming for Cleveland. “Had to be real with ourselves a little bit. And I think it’s just a mindset. We have to come out with the right mindset every night.”Kawhi Leonard had his mind very right in the Clippers’ 128-103 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday, finishing with a season-high 43 points in just three quarters of action. While becoming the first Clipper ever to score more than 40 points in fewer than 30 minutes, Leonard finished two points from tying his regular-season career-high.“It just felt good to get a win, that’s most important,” Leonard said. “I’m satisfied, but I want to get better. We’re building. We still got a long way to go, still got a lot of games to play, so just gotta keep building, trusting each other, enjoy our process and have fun.” “I think that everybody else kind of took a little pressure off of him,” guard Patrick Beverley said. “I came out, hit a couple early (3-pointers). … Sham hit a couple early. When guys around him hit a couple early shots, you really can’t load up or double-team. So once that was done, he kind of found his way to put the ball in the hole.”The Clippers (28-13) built a slim 31-26 first-quarter lead, which they extended, after some yo-yo-ing early in the second quarter, by outscoring the Cavs 33-16 in the final 9:29 of the half.Leonard had 14 of the Clippers’ points in that span, drilling four 3-pointers to help his team take a comfortable 66-50 advantage into the locker room at halftime.Related Articles IVICA ZUBAC POSTER 💀💀💀💀#ClipperNation • @LAClippers pic.twitter.com/PyadFNqMIf— FOX Sports West (@FoxSportsWest) January 15, 2020 Clippers’ Paul George: ‘If I make shots, this series could be a little different’ With Paul George sidelined for the third consecutive game by a hamstring strain, Leonard took over, taking flight for his patented one-handed slams, lofting floaters, burying 3-pointers, drawing fouls and converting nine of 10 free-throw attempts – including stepping to the line with “M-V-P” chants echoing through the building.“He’s making some tough shots,” center Ivica Zubac said. “I (checked) out of the game and he had 40. And then he made that 3 for 43 and I was like, ‘When did he get 43?’ It’s just like he gets points and you don’t even know how did he get them. It’s special to play with a player like that.”Leonard had 26 points in the third quarter alone, and 39 already after only 24 minutes (Eric “Sleepy” Floyd is the only other player to score so many in so little time, when he totaled 40 points in 24 minutes in 1991). According to Elias, Leonard is just the third player (fourth instance) since 1954-55 (the shot clock era) to score 43-plus points in fewer than 29 minutes.The famously softspoken Riverside native even was relatively animated Tuesday, if you count the subtle fist pump and dead-ball handclaps at midcourt.Leonard finished 14 for 22, and hit a season-high six 3-pointers on 10 attempts. He also contributed four assists, three rebounds, two steals and a blocked shot in 29 minutes of work, spending all of the fourth quarter on the bench, the win safely in hand. The Clippers finished with just 11 turnovers and recorded 29 assists, 20 of them in the first half. Beverley – who finished with 10 points, seven rebounds, nine assists and no turnovers – had eight assists before halftime.Lou Williams finished 10 for 13 from the field and had 24 points and Zubac (10 rebounds and four blocks) and Shamet (4 for 11 from 3-point range) chipped in with 12. Montrezl Harrell scored 10 of his 12 points in the fourth quarter.The Cavs (12-39) were missing Kevin Love, who sat out the back half of the back-to-back set at Staples Center. Collin Sexton led Cleveland with 25 points.The Clippers, who were 7-6 in their previous 13 games, improved to 18-4 at home, and to 18-5 against teams worse than .500.“It was a good game for us, we needed this,” Zubac said. “You could see everyone laughing, smiling, and we got some confidence back. Everyone played pretty good and I think this was really important for us, for (our) next games.”“No disrespect to Cleveland but we came into shootaround and we really didn’t work on a lot of Cleveland stuff,” Beverley said. “We kind of worked on our own stuff and it showed today.”OH ME.
