  • Colombian Armed Forces Stand Up Field Hospitals to Battle Coronavirus

    first_imgBy Dialogo March 31, 2020 As the number of confirmed cases of coronavirus in Colombia continues to rise, the military is doing its part to help assist in combatting the virus.These efforts range from securing the nation’s borders, patrolling the streets with police to enforce stay at home orders and social distancing, and handing out much needed food and supplies to various communities.The Armed Forces are also establishing field hospitals throughout parts of the country to receive coronavirus patients. On March 24, Minister of Defense Carlos Holmes Trujillo announced that the Military Forces and the National Police were standing up to 1,800 beds to expand patient care in different regions of the country.Colombian soldiers stand up a tent at a field hospital on the outskirts of Bogotá to receive people infected with COVID-19. (Photo: Colombian Army)In Bogotá, the country’s Central Military Hospital, which for decades was flooded with victims from landmines and other casualties from the country’s internal conflict against leftist rebels, right-wing paramilitary groups, and drug cartels, is now being outfitted to battle the coronavirus.The hospital’s staff parking lot is now home to generator-supplied tents with more than 200 beds. This makeshift emergency room is meant to house coronavirus patients without respiratory complications in an effort to avoid crowding the existing intensive care units in other hospitals.Without the tents, the hospital has 450 beds and an intensive care unit with a 50-patient capacity. The country’s main police hospital, also in Bogotá, has installed similar tents with 174 beds.“We’ve been preparing for several months, since we started to see what was happening in other countries in relation to COVID-19,” Army General Clara Esperanza Galvis, director of the Central Military Hospital, told the news agency Reuters.President Iván Duque ordered a nationwide 19-day quarantine beginning on March 24 to prevent the further spread of the virus and to preserve lives. The Health Ministry predicts that up to 4 million people, about 8 percent of the population, could contract coronavirus in Colombia.Minister Holmes Trujillo also stated that nearly 9,000 national police officers would be assigned to the protection of supermarkets and large food distribution areas, as well as establishments such as transport terminals, airports, and financial centers.“No abuse of any kind will be tolerated against food distribution centers, and we will act accordingly against those who intend to use force in these cases,” he said.Holmes Trujillo also defended the use of the military and police to enforce the national quarantine, saying that this unprecedented event calls for them to go above and beyond. “The circumstances of this emergency have forced the Army and the Police to take these steps and to do it better,” he said. “Colombian lives depend on it.”last_img read more

  • Cricket News Virat Kohli Says ‘Will Have To Take Risks’ For World T20 Success

    first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: When Virat Kohli won the toss at the M Chinnaswamy stadium, Sanjay Manjrekar who was commentating for the host broadcasters asked the Indian cricket team skipper, “I think you will do the obvious.” However, Kohli sprang a surprise by stating that they would bat first. This had taken everybody by surprise. In six previous Twenty20 Internationals at the venue, no team had batted first to win the game. Kohli, with all his experience playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore at this venue, said,” I know it’s a ground where teams chase well. Even in the IPL, it’s a chasing ground. Heading into the World T20 though, we need to improve areas as a team. We know we’re one of the top chasing teams. Batting first is something we’re also looking to strengthen.”After the end of the match, the plan clearly backfired. India were restricted to 134/9 and South Africa won the match by nine wickets to level the three-match series 1-1. Quinton de Kock was the star with an unbeaten 79 but the damage was done by a fine spell from Beuran Hendricks and Kagiso Rabada. Kohli said certain risks had to be taken if the team has to gain something and for that, it required them to come out of their comfort zone. “we will have to take risks. Even when you want to win a game of cricket you have to take risks, so nothing is a given, nothing is a guarantee before you start playing. I think as a team if we are willing to get out of our comfort zone a lot more, then we will be unfazed with what happens at the toss. That’s our basis idea: trying to take the toss out of the equation as a side. Mentally, if we put ourselves in a situation where we are ready to do anything rather than wanting to do one thing, we will be in a better position as a side to capitalise on any situation that we are in. Unless you do that, unless you start taking those risks, you are always going to be put under somewhere or the other. We want to make sure that we iron all those out before we head into the World Cup,” Kohli said. Also Read | Virat Kohli Is Effective As Captain Only Because Of MS Dhoni, Rohit Sharma: Gautam GambhirThe Indian cricket team bat deep and it was the depth which prompted Kohli to do something different. However, only Shikhar Dhawan managed a top score of 36 with the rest of the batting folding up cheaply. Kohli admitted that South Africa executed their plans better and India could not adapt. “We realised the pitch didn’t allow us to keep doing that. So I think the kind of start we got, 63 for one after that, I think we could have reassessed, thing about 170 rather than 200. Not to take anything away from South Africa, they hit the right areas, they bowled really well, understood the pitch. So it was a combination of good bowling, not great decision-making but, as I said, these kinds of games will keep happening. As long as we are wanting to come out of our comfort zone and putting ourselves in situations which could be the case in a big tournament,” Kohli said.Also Read | Virat Kohli, Kane Williamson, Steve Smith And Joe Root – Which Player Is Dominating In the Fab Four? With only Hardik Pandya taking a wicket, India were soundly thrashed but Kohli pinned the blame on the batsmen for not setting up a big total. “Bowlers coming out of their comfort zone mean at least they get 160 (to defend). You can’t defend 130, we didn’t get it right with the bat and you can’t be too harsh on the bowlers in a T20 game with this kind of total when there is a bit of dew as well. They should not be analysed or criticised on defending this low total. We didn’t have enough runs on the board, so the bowlers are always under pressure knowing that one or two overs can take the game away from you. But I think they have done decently well (in the series overall), we will have to be patient with the combination we are playing at the moment. We will have to strengthen one or two things,” Kohli said. With the three-match Twenty20 International series done, the focus now shifts to the three-match Test series and it will South Africa’s first in the ICC World Test Championship.last_img read more
