UK’s Johnson ‘improving’ as he fights COVID-19 in intensive care

first_imgBritish Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s condition is improving and he is able to sit up in bed and engage with clinical staff, finance minister Rishi Sunak said on Wednesday as Johnson remained in intensive care battling COVID-19.Johnson was admitted to St Thomas’ hospital on Sunday evening with a persistent high temperature and cough and was transferred to intensive care on Monday.The 55-year-old British leader, who tested positive for the new coronavirus nearly two weeks ago, has received oxygen support but has not been put on a ventilator. Topics : “The latest from the hospital is that the prime minister remains in intensive care where his condition is improving,” Sunak said at a daily government coronavirus news conference.”I can also tell you that he has been sitting up in bed and been engaging positively with the clinical team.”Johnson’s designated deputy, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, said earlier the prime minister would soon be back at the helm.The United Kingdom’s total hospital deaths from COVID-19 has risen by a daily record of 938 to 7,097 as of 1600 GMT on April 7.center_img But the number of new infections and hospital admissions in Britain was beginning to show signs of flattening, Stephen Powis, medical director of the National Health Service, told the news conference.While Johnson was out of action, the country was entering what scientists said was the deadliest phase of the outbreak and the government was grappling with the question of when to lift the lockdown.”We are beginning to see the benefits I believe but the really critical thing is that we have to continue following instructions – we have to continue following social distancing, because if we don’t the virus will start to spread again,” said Powis.In the latest of a raft of measures to rescue the economy and society from the worst effects of the crisis, Sunak announced an extra 750 million pounds ($930 million) of funding for charities so that they could continue their work.He also said Raab would chair a government emergency response meeting, known as Cobra, on Thursday to discuss how to deal with a review of lockdown measures in Johnson’s absence.”We committed that there would be a review in and around three weeks [from the start of the lockdown]. That review will be based on the evidence and the data provided by SAGE,” said Sunak, referring to the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies. last_img read more

Men’s soccer coach John Michael Hayden that “They have demonstrated with their actions now and previously that they do not echo the culture of this program.” Louisville on Wednesday paused workouts for men’s and women’s soccer, field hockey and volleyball following the positive tests among members of those programs. Others that may have been exposed are quarantined due to contact tracing. Athletic director Vince Tyra had warned that dismissal was an option and said he supported Hayden’s decision.

Navy’s opener against longtime rival Notre Dame was at first scheduled to be played in Dublin, Ireland, on Aug. 29. The pandemic halted those plans and the game was rescheduled for the weekend of Sept. 5 at Annapolis, Maryland.

Middle Tennessee will visit Troy on Nov. 21. That’s the date the Blue Raiders would have visited UConn, which became the first FBS program to cancel its season Wednesday.Massaro says they anticipated this scenario.

Middle Tennessee also will keep future schedules intact. Moore made the announcement with a farewell note posted on Twitter.The 5-foot-9, 180-pound junior became one of the most electrifying players in the country two years ago when he caught 114 passes for 1,254 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Big 12 Scenarios Come Into Focus As OU, OSU Control Own Destiny

first_imgFor Oklahoma State and Oklahoma, the path to the 2016 Big 12 title is quite simple. If either team wins its next two games, it wins the conference title. That could actually mean a murky path to the CFB Playoffs as well, but we’ll get to that later on.There are only three teams left in the Big 12 race as OU has zero losses and the fourth place team currently has three. No matter what OU does, the only teams that can catch it are Oklahoma State and West Virginia. So let’s get to the scenarios, shall we? Here are the current records:OSU: 6-1OU: 7-0WVU: 5-1This is a little complicated because West Virginia still has three games left — OU and Baylor at home and at Iowa State (what could go wrong?) So I based everything on what they did in those two games. Here’s a look at the chart.screen-shot-2016-11-13-at-3-39-43-pmThis is actually probably more simple than it looks. In every scenario, if OU wins two games or OSU wins two games, they win the league. That accounts for most of the 24 scenarios. West Virginia only has three paths. They have to win out and have either OU beat OSU (this is their best path) or have TCU beat OSU.There are actually a few scenarios in which OSU could lose to TCU and still win the Big 12 title. It would have to have West Virginia beat OU and then turn around and lose to either Baylor or Iowa State. Then OSU would have to win Bedlam. If WVU beat OU and Iowa State but lost to, say, Baylor, and OSU won Bedlam, all three teams would be 7-2 but OSU would have beaten the other two and would be Big 12 champ.If OU wins this weekend and OSU loses, Bedlam will be for pride. The Big 12 will already be decided.My own personal nightmare is Baker Mayfield healing a broken leg at midfield and throwing 7 TDs to beat OSU and win the Big 12 losing to TCU and beating OU to let WVU win the Big 12. This would be peak Oklahoma Stating.So the mission for Oklahoma State is straightforward: Just win, baby. Just as it has been all season. I personally would love to see OSU and OU win huge this weekend and create one more Bedlam for the Big 12 title. This would be the fourth in six years and the last before next year’s reinstated conference championship game.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.
