first_imgDespite the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in Bali, the island has no intention of implementing large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) similar to those that are enforced in Greater Jakarta to stop the virus transmission.Bali Governor Wayan Koster claimed that Bali had yet to face a situation where such restrictions would be essential to apply, citing that the province had not even reached a high number of local transmissions.In a Monday press conference, Koster said implementing the large-scale restrictions would require at least two conditions.“First, the region would need to record many COVID-19 cases. Second, the spread of the virus would need to be high and have a big potential to cause fatalities and other misfortunes.“For Bali, referring to such requirements and my calculations […], it is not yet the time [for us to implement the restrictions]. We’re still quite far [from such conditions],” said Koster, who is an Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDIP) politician.Read also: COVID-19: Pekanbaru first area in Sumatra granted request to impose large-scale social restrictionsHe went on to say that Bali at the moment was not at the level of Jakarta, which is the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak in Indonesia with a high number of local transmissions. Koster said he was certain that the number of local transmissions in Bali was still low.Out of 81 cases recorded as of Monday, Koster claimed that only eight cases were caused by local transmission. “Most of the cases here are imported cases. Only eight people contracted COVID-19 through local transmission. I check the situation on a daily basis. The amount of local transmission is very small, in my opinion,” he added.Koster’s reasoning was based on what happened in Jakarta.Read also: COVID-19: West Java to request large-scale social restrictions for Greater Bandung“In Jakarta, the total number has reached 2,000 cases, and mostly from local transmission. “The capital is also connected with neighboring areas with high cases such as Banten, West Java — including Bogor and Bekasi — as well as Central Java,” he said.Koster claimed it was relatively easy to control the spread of COVID-19 in Bali as it is a small island. Nevertheless, his administration has applied limited access at all gates of Bali.The province is also focusing on repatriating thousands of Balinese migrant workers, considering that many COVID-19 cases were found in migrant workers who had just come home from working abroad.Topics :last_img read more

first_img Share Tweet BusinessLifestyleTravel New LIAT CEO takes office by: – April 22, 2014 Sharing is caring! New LIAT CEO, David EvansThe newly appointed CEO of LIAT – The Caribbean Airline – arrived from the United Kingdom on Sunday with a promise to listen to staff to determine how to improve the regional carrier.“The years I have spent in the airline business have taught me that there is no monopoly of wisdom in the CEO’s office,” said Mr. David Evans. The new LIAT chief executive underscored the value of listening to staff who were “those closest to the customers and who have the best insight into what the customers want.”Evans, responsible for the Caribbean when he was Area Manager for British Airways, announced he plans to begin his duties by listening to the shareholders, staff, the customers and LIAT stakeholders “who definitely know the airline much better than I do.”Leveraging his experience working in 14 countries and over four continents, Evans stressed that communication will be central to LIAT, both internally with his staff and externally with the traveling public, but added he will be staying true to the mantra of “keeping it simple” and avoid over complicating messages.The new CEO believes taking good care of customers is the basis of success and declared the airline’s service will be a key differentiator because “it is people who deliver service not airplanes and engines.”Evans served a number of airlines in several regions and is convinced of the importance of positioning LIAT as the airline “of the Caribbean and for the Caribbean.”Turning to LIAT’s refleeting process, Evans said the new ATR aircraft represent a major opportunity to enhance the in-flight experience, and LIAT’s route network makes it a very attractive partner to international carriers. “I will focus on what we do well, and what we can do better,” he said, indicating that putting in place some small wins to improve performance while laying down longer term plans will be part and parcel of his approach.David Evans is a results driven executive with more than 35 years of experience in senior roles within the aviation industry. He speaks Spanish, French, German and Mandarin Chinese, and holds an MBA in Business Administration from Lancaster University and Combined Honours in Modern Languages from Wadham College, Oxford University, England.He assumes the chief executive responsibilities from Mrs. Julie Reifer-Jones, who has been Acting CEO since the resignation of Mr. Ian Brunton in September 2013.center_img Share Share 56 Views   no discussionslast_img read more

first_imgWydad Casablanca have emerged champions of Africa after a 1-0 home victory over Al Ahly in the second leg of their Champions League final to complete a 2-1 aggregate win in Casablanca on Saturday.It’s the first time in 25 years that the Moroccans have won Africa’s biggest club competition, replacing Mamelodi Sundowns as the new kings of the continent.After holding Al Ahly to a 1-1 draw in the Egyptian coastal city of Alexandria last week, a second-half strike from Walid El-Karti was enough to settle the all-north African affair in Casablanca.With the victory, Wydad will now represent Africa in the FIFA Club World Cup coming up Dec. 6-16 at the United Arab Emirates.Restricting their opponents to diagonal balls in midfield, Wydad struck the post when Abdeladim Khadrouf’s shot from inside the penalty area deflected off Hussein El-Sayed and onto the woodwork.The guests had their best chance when Moemen Zakareya found himself through on goal but could not produce the finish to beat Wydad goalkeeper Zouheir Laaroubi.An increasingly dominant Wydad found the opener – which proved to be the winner – on 69 minutes when El-Karti headed home a cross from Achraf Bencharki.Hussein Amotta’s men came close to a second as Ismail Haddad forced Ahly keeper Sherif Ekramy with a fine save from point-blank range.Ahly coach Hossam El Badry threw on veteran forward Emad Motaeb in search of an equaliser, but the host held firm to celebrate a well-deserved triumph.Relatedlast_img read more

first_imgMumbai, Jun 21 (PTI) Softening its stand against the BJP after censuring it over a host of issues, the Shiv Sena today said criticism over policies should not be taken personally and that those who want to improve, take comments with an open heart and bring about necessary changes.”Criticism done on policies should not be taken personally. Doing so increases stress. Governments keep committing mistakes. But, in a democracy, it is necessary these mistakes are pointed out,” an editorial in Sena mouthpiece Saamana said today.”Criticism is not only done to change or remove governments, but to improve its functioning. Those who want to improve take criticism sportingly and with an open heart. A good ruler needs to place his feet on the ground, keep his mind calm and respect criticism,” the ruling ally said.On Sunday, addressing Shiv Sena workers at the partys golden jubilee year celebration, Uddhav Thackeray had said he would not have any “twisted” alliance with the ruling partner BJP for BMC polls, and asked the cadres to be ready to contest the polls without alliance.Notably, a senior BJP minister had yesterday said despite Uddhav Thackerays assertion that he would not accept a “twisted” alliance deal with BJP for the next years civic polls in Mumbai, he was keen to sew up an alliance.Meanwhile, reacting to the Senas change in stand, the opposition Congress and NCP said these comments were expected.”We had expected the Sena to soften its stand against the BJP. The Sena knows the corruption that it has allowed in the BMC running into thousands of crores, will ensure that it does not retain power. Thus, they now want to use the BJP to fulfil its agenda,” Congress spokesperson Al-Nasser Zakaria alleged.advertisementNCP legislator Kiran Pawaskar alleged, “BJP has a policy of teaching a lesson to anybody who revolts against it. It feared Eknath Khadse, so his PA was found involved in corruption and subsequently the minister had to resign.””Now, the Sena is a thorn in BJPs throat. We wonder if the BJP wanted to play a similar tactic with Deepak Sawant, through his PS Sunil Mali and this made the Sena go soft against the BJP,” he further claimed. PTI MM GK RCJlast_img read more
