Beijing cuts flights to curb potential spread of mounting coronavirus cases

first_imgThe outbreak has been traced to the massive Xinfadi wholesale food center in the southwest of Beijing where thousands of tons of vegetables, fruit and meat are traded each day.The new coronavirus was first identified in December at a seafood market in Wuhan, capital of the central Chinese province of Hubei, and has since spread around the world, infecting more than 8 million people.Contagion risksState media has cited experts as saying the latest outbreak in Beijing was different from Wuhan because the cases were localized and the source of the infection was clear, allowing authorities to more easily get the situation under control.However, Hebei, Liaoning, Sichuan and Zhejiang provinces have all reported new cases linked to Xinfadi, leading provinces concerned about contagion to impose quarantine requirements on visitors from Beijing.Northeastern Heilongjiang province, which only recently brought a local outbreak under control, said it will impose 21 days of quarantine on people who have had contact with Xinfadi or have a history of residence in medium to high risk areas in Beijing.Heilongjiang said it will also require any other travellers from Beijing to quarantine at a centralized location for up to three days, followed by another 14 days of self-isolation.  Topics : Authorities on Tuesday raised Beijing to a level two alert, the second-highest level in a four-tier COVID-19 emergency response level system. That reversed a one step downgrade from level two to level three a mere 10 days earlier.Some 27 neighborhoods have been designated as medium-risk areas, subjecting people entering to temperature checks and registration, as of Tuesday. One neighborhood, near the massive wholesale food center detected as the source of the latest outbreak, was marked high-risk.Under the level two restrictions, the city’s roads and highways were still open, companies and factories were not ordered to stop work, and there was no blanket curb on residential compounds.However, movement of people in and out of the city was strictly controlled and subject to COVID-19 tests, while residents in high-risk areas were quarantined in their neighborhoods and also required to undergo tests. Kindergartens, primary schools and high schools were all shut.center_img Officials cancelled scores of domestic flights in and out of Beijing on Wednesday as they ramped up attempts to contain a coronavirus outbreak in the Chinese capital over the past week that has sparked fears of renewed wider contagion.Health officials recorded 31 new confirmed infections for June 16, bringing the cumulative infections since Thursday to 137 cases, the worst resurgence of the disease in the city since early February.Aviation data tracker Variflight showed that half the scheduled inbound flights and 40% of outbound flights from Beijing Capital International Airport, one of the city’s two major airports, have been or will likely be cancelled on Wednesday. The majority of the flights are domestic routes, with direct international flight routes banned three months ago when the city was grappling with the first wave of infections.last_img read more

Landing home loans may become easier following royal commission

first_img Queenslanders the most well off in nation MORE: >>FOLLOW EMILY BLACK ON FACEBOOK<< The banking, financial advice, superannuation and insurance sectors didn’t go unscathed either, as Mr Hayne handed down a series of recommendations to get them to lift their game and leave customers better, not worse off. ANZ has hinted that obtaining a home loan may become a little easier after the banking royal commission.

Speaking to The Courier-Mail ahead of today’s Property Council 2019 Outlook lunch, ANZ’s head of Australian Economics David Plank said in terms of policy, most of the credit tightening measures were already in the system.

Lampard makes history in Blues win

first_img On his 595th Chelsea appearance, Lampard headed in an Eden Hazard cross after 19 minutes to move within two of Bobby Tambling’s club scoring record of 202 goals. Former West Ham striker Demba Ba should have scored three times in the first half, but Chelsea went two goals ahead when the impressive Hazard netted after 50 minutes. Frank Lampard scored his 200th Chelsea goal as the Blues climbed to third in the Barclays Premier League with a 2-0 victory over his old club West Ham in the London derby at Stamford Bridge. Lampard was unmarked when he met Hazard’s clipped cross from the right channel with a firm header for his first goal since his strike in the FA Cup fourth-round replay with Brentford. He celebrated his 12th league goal of the season in front of the away end and with John Terry, who was selected on the bench, and the visiting support expressed their displeasure by hurling objects the duo’s way. In the first half West Ham rarely threatened – Andy Carroll had a strike chalked off for a push in the back on David Luiz – and the Blues should have been out of sight by the interval. Jussi Jaaskelainen saved a low Luiz free-kick and twice denied Ba when the striker had been found by Victor Moses, who also shot wide on the turn from Cesar Azpilicueta’s cross as West Ham again left a Chelsea player in space in the box. Juan Mata curled off target, a spectacular Luiz left-footed volley went narrowly wide and Chelsea’s dominance continued after the break. Hazard collected an attacking throw-in down the right, linked with Mata and then was allowed to drift across the area. The Belgian went past a hapless Winston Reid and James Collins before shooting left-footed and low into the bottom corner. Hammers substitute Carlton Cole got in front of Gary Cahill at the near post but Petr Cech saved and Carroll headed over from a late corner for the Hammers, who were then fortunate not to concede a third goal. Uncharacteristically Lampard ballooned a shot over from Oscar’s cross after 86 minutes before soaking up the acclaim at the final whistle. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Mignolet takes rough with smooth

first_img The Belgium international has had an impressive start to his career on Merseyside since his summer move from Sunderland but in the big games over Christmas against Manchester City and Chelsea he found himself scrutinised for two goals. Errors have been in the minority for the 25-year-old and after keeping only his third clean sheet in 18 appearances against Hull on Wednesday Mignolet remains on an even keel. Press Association “There is a difference between being hard on yourself and making sure you learn out of the things you have done before,” he said. “You have to make sure you look forward to the next game and step on to the pitch with the right mindset and so far that has not been an issue for me. “The way I look at it is I don’t get carried away with good performances and neither do I when things get a bit tougher.” The Belgian had it easy at Anfield on New Year’s Day with Hull unable to register a shot on target. That was handy as Liverpool were far from their fluent best but Mignolet said they have to expect teams to come to Anfield and try to frustrate them. “Hull are not easy opponents as you saw away from home (a 3-1 defeat) but I thought we dealt with the game very well in the right manner, scored two goals and kept a clean sheet and that is what you have to do at home,” he added. “We are back in fourth position now and we have to keep going. That’s exactly what we wanted after the performances in the Christmas period. It was very important to get back to winning ways. “If you play at home you have to show everyone (who visits) they have to win the three points like we have done numerous times before and this game was very important to start 2014 the way we started the season. Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is keeping a level head through the ups and downs of his maiden season at Anfield. “You can look forward again and make sure we keep building on what we’ve done. “Every home game against sides like Hull is a very difficult game until we score the opener and even after that we have to score the second and third goals to finish off the games. “It is very difficult to make sure we keep patient, pass the ball around and don’t give too many opportunities to the opposition, especially from set-pieces. We have to make sure we keep professional. “We can now look forward to the next game, which is a cup game on Sunday.” League One Oldham visit Anfield at the weekend looking to repeat last season’s 3-2 home victory which knocked out the Reds in the fourth round a year ago. It will be a different prospect at Anfield, where they were drubbed 5-1 in January 2012. “We want to win any game. That doesn’t make any difference whether it is the FA Cup, Capital One Cup or any other games – we try to prepare ourselves and make sure we get out of the game what we can get out of it,” added Mignolet. “It is a big opportunity as you can play at Wembley but that is far ahead of us. “The next game is the most important and before you get to that stage you have to win a lot of games and against Oldham it won’t be an easy game. “We have to prepare in a professional manner and make sure we are ready for it when it comes along. “For them it is already a cup final and they will come here and try to show everyone what they can do. “We have to make sure we are professional and do a job.” last_img read more

MBB : Triche still developing into go-to scorer for SU

first_imgFlorida’s Kenny Boynton hit a 3-pointer from a few feet beyond the arc to put Florida up by three with 9:19 remaining in the second half. Coming down the court, he and teammate Bradley Beal celebrated as the Gators on the bench rose to their feet in excitement.On Syracuse’s ensuing possession, Brandon Triche nailed a 3-pointer from the right wing to even the score. But the SU guard remained emotionless after hitting the big shot in an intense back-and-forth game.His stoic reaction has been common throughout his career at SU.‘I’ll get there and be hyped so he can get there like that because he can go into the moment and doze off in games, but he sees me there and I’m clapping,’ point guard Scoop Jardine said. ‘… I’m slapping on the floor, that’s gonna get him going and also does get him going.’Triche has been among Syracuse’s (8-0) most consistent performers so far this season, but the guard is still gaining confidence in his third year as a starter. He is second on the team in scoring with 12.1 points per game, leading the Orange to victories with his efficient play on offense. Triche and SU will take on Marshall (5-1) in the Carrier Dome at 7 p.m. on Tuesday.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn an impressive 72-68 victory over No. 12 Florida on Friday, Triche paced the team with 20 points. He scored 13 in the second half and went 9-of-9 from the free-throw line to help the Orange hold off the Gators late.He scored on a variety of drives and mid-range jumpers to go with that huge 3 to tie the game.‘The thing with Brandon is that he’s done that in the past, he’s come in last year, get nothing and then get 15 in the second half,’ SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. ‘I still don’t think he realizes how good he is. I just don’t think he realizes. I don’t think anybody can guard him, and I think he’s a tremendous player.’Triche displayed his all-around ability throughout the game Friday.He gave Syracuse its first lead of the game. Triche received the ball on the right wing, put his head down and dribbled a few feet to his left before knocking down the shot over the defender to put the Orange up 18-16 in the first half.Later, Triche banked a shot in from the left block in traffic after being knocked to the ground by Florida forward Will Yeguete. The Orange guard finished a three-point play with the free throw to put SU up 25-21 with 4:41 left in the half.Triche said he tries to stay aggressive and confident on the floor every game.‘I’m trying to get there,’ Triche said. ‘I have to make sure I believe that as well, but it starts every day just make sure you go out there and being comfortable and making sure everybody else knows that as well.’His confidence shined through when he hit that big 3 to end a Florida run and help SU take control of the game. In a poor shooting half by the Orange, Triche made the first of just two shots from beyond the arc for Syracuse.That 3-pointer took back the momentum for the Orange and set the stage for Jardine to take over the game in the final eight minutes.For Kris Joseph, Triche’s offensive production was crucial for his team to get the win. Even though the rest of the Orange struggled to knock down shots, Triche remained confident and kept shooting.That confidence hasn’t always been there for Triche, but it is something Jardine has noticed he has developed in the last two years.‘Brandon, he worked hard and that’s how he gained his confidence,’ Jardine said. ‘But the most important thing is I tell him all the time he’s the best player on our team because I know he needs to hear that.’  Published on December 5, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Ryne: Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
