  • Govt says rapid COVID-19 testing kits can return results in two minutes

    first_imgMedical officers started rapid COVID-19 tests on Friday, focusing on areas at risk of widespread contagion, he said, adding that the initial wave of tests would be for around 600,000 people across the country who had contact with people found to have COVID-19.The first tests were performed in South Jakarta on Friday, according to President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo, as contact tracing carried out by authorities found that the area was at high risk for the disease.Jokowi recently ordered his aides to conduct nationwide rapid tests to expedite detection as not many people could undergo regular tests due to the limited number of laboratories. Indonesia has recorded the highest death toll from the disease of all ASEAN nations, with 32 fatalities to date.Read also: Indonesia starts rapid tests, imports medicines to ‘cure’ COVID-19, Jokowi says The archipelago recorded a total of 369 cases as of Friday, and the disease had spread to 17 out of the country’s 34 provinces.Indonesia hopes to distribute 1 million rapid testing kits nationwide in the upcoming days, Yurianto said. The government received 2,000 testing kits on Friday and was set to obtain 100,000 more on Saturday.Despite the ability to provide faster results, rapid testing kits cannot provide the “strong” results of the regular polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests as they are not able to determine the severity of the infection.Yurianto, therefore, reminded the public that the tests were supposed to only confirm the infections and that they should not react excessively once the results were out.“Not all people who test positive should seek advanced medical treatment at hospitals. If their results are positive after taking the test but they are asymptomatic, we will ask them to self-isolate at home,” Yurianto said.“However, if people experience mild symptoms of the disease, we might ask them to reconfirm the result by taking the regular PCR test.” (glh)Topics : The Indonesian government says COVID-19 rapid testing kits can return results in about two minutes. Authorities expect the kits will significantly speed up efforts to detect and contain COVID-19 in the country.Health Ministry disease control and prevention director general Achmad Yurianto said on Friday that the results would come quickly as the tests used only blood serum, and medical workers would perform short reaction tests to see whether someone had the virus.“Medical officers will take a few drops of blood from the person and put them into a testing kit for examination. The results will be out in about two minutes,” Yurianto said.last_img read more

  • First phase of TGV Est approved

    first_imgFRENCH Prime Minister Alain Juppé announced on December 23 that construction of the first phase of the long-planned TGV Est project will start in 1998. With the declaration of public utility agreed in May 1996, the way is now clear for SNCF to proceed with detailed design and land acquisitions.Although land will be purchased for the entire 406 km alignment, work is only approved for the first phase covering the 270 km from Vaires-sur-Marne in the eastern suburbs of Paris to Vandières, south of Metz on the main line to Nancy.Juppé said that completion of the first phase will permit a Paris – Strasbourg timing of 2h 30min, with Reims reached in 45min and Metz and Nancy in less than 1h 30min. The alignment will permit TGVs to run at 350 or 360 km/h, which would permit Strasbourg to be reached in 2h or less if the section between Vandières and Vendenheim outside Strasbourg is completed later. No dates have been set for this work, nor indeed for completion of Phase 1, although this is likely to be in 2004.Also approved is electrification at 25 kV 50Hz of the lines in the Vosges from Blainville to Remiremont and Lunéville to St Dié, and upgrading of the 7 km from Strasbourg to Kehl, including a second bridge over the Rhine at Kehl.Cost will be Fr26·8bn, of which about Fr3·5bn will come from local authorities – the transport ministry says that ’a very important financial effort’ will be needed by the state. Rolling stock is expected to cost a further Fr6bn.Traffic is expected to reach 15·5 million passengers a year, over 3 million of whom will be making international trips. oTGV Est:last_img read more

  • Kohli softens stance on relationship with Australians

    first_img(REUTERS) – India captain Virat Kohli believes his post-match comments in Dharamsala regarding his friendship with Australian players has been “blown way out of proportion” and clarified they were directed only at a couple of individuals.The hard-fought series witnessed plenty of acrimony, the most notable being Kohli’s criticism of counterpart Steve Smith for gesturing towards his dressing room for guidance on whether to review an lbw decision in the second Test at Bengaluru.Immediately after India clinched the series 2-1 with Tuesday’s win, Kohli said he would not regard any Australian cricketer as a friend “ever again”, going against the good will he felt towards the tourists prior to the first Test.“My answer at the post-match conference has been blown way out of proportion,” the feisty 28-year-old, who is also captain of the Royal Challengers Bangalore Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise, said on his verified Twitter account yesterday.“I did not categorically say the whole Australian team but only a couple of individuals. I continue to be in good terms with the few guys I know & who I’ve played with at RCB & that doesn’t change.”Kohli’s Bengaluru-based Twenty20 side includes Australians Shane Watson, Travis Head and Billy Stanlake, while pacemen Mitchell Starc and Kane Richardson also played for the team under his stewardship last season.Australia captain Smith will lead the Pune-based team in the popular tournament starting on Wednesday while compatriot David Warner leads champions Hyderabad and Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell will skipper the Punjab side.Kohli is facing a race against time to be ready for the start of the tournament as he continues his rehabilitation from the shoulder injury that forced him to miss the fourth and final Test against Australia.last_img read more
