COVID-19: Greater Bandung regional leaders to jointly seek approval for PSBB

first_imgIf the PSBB request for the Greater Bandung area was approved by the end of this week, the implementation would start on April 22, Ridwan said.“[The implementation] will be based on the same pattern and strategy as that in Bogor, Depok and Bekasi,” Ridwan said.Ridwan also instructed the regional heads in Greater Bandung to prepare a social safety net to address the social and economic impacts resulting from the restrictions.West Java COVID-19 task force secretary Daud Achmad said Greater Bandung needed to implement the mobility restrictions because the area had confirmed a high number of COVID-19 cases, second only to Greater Jakarta. The heads of five regions of Greater Bandung, West Java, have agreed to Governor Ridwan Kamil’s plan to jointly request the Health Ministry’s approval for imposing large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) this week.Home to a combined population of around 8.6 million people, the five regions – Bandung city, Bandung regency, West Bandung regency, Cimahi city and Sumedang regency – seek to enforce the same measures as those to be imposed in Jakarta’s satellite cities in West Java starting Wednesday.“We agreed to send the PSBB request to the Health Ministry by Thursday,” Ridwan said during a coordination meeting with the regional heads through a video conference on Tuesday. “Greater Bandung is the [main] epicenter of the coronavirus after Greater Jakarta,” Daud said.Separately, Bandung COVID-19 task force head Ema Sumarna said she had been finalizing data on potential recipients of social aid in Bandung city.“We are cleaning up the data so that it is right on target. We are also calculating our financial capabilities,” Ema said.The Bandung city administration has allocated Rp 298 billion (US$19 million) for COVID-19 countermeasures, Rp 218 billion of which are allocated for social safety, Rp 75 billion for health care and Rp 5 billion for the task force’s operational activities.Ema said Bandung was currently home to 137,000 poor households, but the PSBB measures would likely cause nearly 20,000 more households to fall into poverty.Under the social safety net, each eligible family is projected to receive Rp 500,000 per month for the next three months.Ema said the city administration had been looking for ways to enhance its social aid programs, as tax revenue from various sectors had declined drastically.“Taxes from the hospitality sector are near zero, and those from the restaurant business decreased quite dramatically. Entertainment activities are no longer contributing, as they are prohibited,” Ema said, adding that the income from land and buildings as well as parking had also been affected. After Jakarta, West Java is the province hit hardest by COVID-19. As of Wednesday, the Health Ministry recorded 559 confirmed COVID-19 cases in the province, with 52 deaths. (syk)Topics :last_img read more

Liverpool receive huge £175m cash boost

first_imgLiverpool are set to receive a huge TV cash boost. According to The Times, Liverpool are set to receive a huge £175million cash windfall after Premier League clubs decided to delay reductions in this year’s prize money following the coronavirus pandemic. All 20 clubs must pay back TV revenue received prior to the outbreak as a result of the suspension of the season. The figures could total £330m that are due as a rebate to broadcasters including Sky Sports and BT Sport.Advertisement However, that will not affect any of this year’s earnings with Liverpool in line to collect the largest amount after romping to the title. read also:Liverpool seal signing of Greek defender Tsimikas Liverpool will now pocket £175m in prize money and TV earnings – the highest amount ever received by a top-flight club.

Europe team leave it late

Things can change day-to-day. “It’s looking unlikely that the ground will be soft at Cheltenham but if it did turn up soft or heavy, then that could make the two miles and five of the Ryanair less likely.

United comeback stuns Tigers

first_imgManchester United came back from two goals down to defeat a spirited Hull 3-2 at the KC Stadium, with former Red Devil James Chester deciding things with a second-half own-goal. Hull enjoyed the best of the play at 2-2 but, after Alex Bruce’s header hit the woodwork, Chester turned Ashley Young’s cross into his own net. Danny Graham spurned a fine chance to equalise in the 87th minute, with Chester also going close at the death after Antonio Valencia picked up a late red card. For United boss David Moyes it was both a lucky escape and a fifth straight win in all competitions, while Hull’s Steve Bruce has still yet to beat the club he once captained in 15 years of management. He can rarely have had a better chance. The visitors’ team sheet – phoned in after a delayed arrival – contained several intrigues: Darren Fletcher back for a first start since December 1 2012, Danny Welbeck fit after Achilles trouble but Phil Jones absent with a knee injury. Hull, unchanged for the third time in a row, set the tone for the afternoon by scoring with the first chance of the game, Jake Livermore and Ahmed Elmohamady having earned an early corner. Tom Huddlestone delivered the ball into the box where Alex Bruce got above Patrice Evra to head towards the far post. Welbeck was slow to come off the line but Chester was one step ahead, advancing to volley first time into the roof of the net. Press Association Chester, a one-time United trainee, had opened the scoring with a close-range finish in the fourth minute and, after heading in at the wrong end, had a glorious chance to finish it in injury time only for David De Gea to make the save. David Meyler doubled Hull’s advantage thanks to a heavy Jonny Evans deflection but United rallied swiftly from their calamitous start and were level by the 25th minute as Chris Smalling’s header and Wayne Rooney’s stunning volley found the target. United had been caught cold and worse was to follow in the 13th minute as Hull’s fine start turned into the stuff of dreams. Meyler was the man who drove Hull into the penalty area and stayed up to collect Yannick Sagbo’s cutback across the box. His first connection was wayward but Evans allowed him a second chance with a sloppy clearance that came back to the Irishman. The resulting shot would not have troubled De Gea but Evans again intervened, wrong-footing the Spaniard and turning the ball into his own net. The home support first celebrated then turned their attention to Moyes, who was told “you’re getting sacked in the morning”. An apparent groin injury to Rafael gave the Scot a chance to change things, and he made an aggressive move in sending on livewire winger Adnan Januzaj. He had an almost immediate impact, winning a 19th-minute free-kick from which United scored. Rooney provided the hanging cross from the right and Smalling produced a clinical header that nestled inside the far post. United, almost immediately, regained confidence and only a superb save from Allan McGregor stopped Tom Cleverley finding the top corner with a 20-yard curler. The Scotsman’s effort was all the better considering he had earlier collided awkwardly with Ashley Young, an incident that eventually forced him off at half-time. The pace did not relent and with 25 minutes gone, Rooney netted the pick of the day. He controlled Evans’ long ball effortlessly with his back to goal before flicking an overhead pass to Welbeck. When it came back to him, via a combination of Welbeck and Curtis Davies, the England striker took another deft touch before crashing home a fierce 30-yard volley. Bruce had to reshuffle at the interval, Steve Harper on for McGregor and Robert Koren replacing Meyler. But the hosts once more came out brightly, Yannick Sagbo working De Gea on the turn and Davies glancing a header wide from Huddlestone’s corner having beaten Smalling. Hull turned the screw again either side of the hour mark, Sagbo tripped by Valencia as he surged towards goal and Huddlestone denied by a ricochet off Evra. Bruce’s header, off the resulting corner, had De Gea well beaten but came back off the frame of the goal. Having weathered that storm, United promptly scored on the counter in the 66th minute. Rooney started the move in midfield and hoped to finish it after Young had beaten Maynor Figueroa on the wing. Instead, it went down as an own-goal as Chester nodded into his own net. In the 87th minute Sagbo’s determination yielded a good chance for Graham to equalise but his header lacked conviction. Valencia’s red card gave Hull a sniff in extra-time but De Gea’s block off Chester ensured United held out. last_img read more

Zidane silences the doubters by bringing Real Madrid back to life

first_imgMadrid, Spain (AFP) — Few expected Zinedine Zidane to leave Real Madrid and even fewer expected him to come back as coach.And yet almost 500 days later, he has won the La Liga title, without fuss, without even the improvements he was promised.On Thursday, in an empty Alfredo di Stefano Stadium at Real Madrid’s training ground, he hoisted another trophy, his second in La Liga and 11th overall as coach.Zidane currently wins a trophy every 19 games on average and while three Champions League titles out of three was historic, this might be his most impressive yet.When he was reappointed in March last year, Madrid President Florentino Perez said Zidane had come again to launch “a glorious new era”.But standing next to him was Madrid’s third coach of the season, taking over a team 12 points behind Barcelona, having just been knocked out and outplayed by Ajax in the Champions League.Most thought it was a mistake, the coach that had gone out on the highest of highs returning to a team in tatters.Cristiano Ronaldo was gone and it seemed those that remained had lost the hunger. “We will change things, for sure, and for the years to come,” Zidane said.Change, though, would have to wait and then it never really came at all. Zidane saw out a miserable 11 games of last season where performances grew worse not better.Anticipation of a summer overhaul increased as Madrid’s newspapers published polls revelling in which of the world’s best players should arrive.Kylian Mbappe or Neymar? “I would like them both,” said Perez.Zidane did not want them all but there was one he desperately wanted, Manchester United’s Paul Pogba, who he was convinced could change everything.Yet Pogba stayed put and so too did Gareth Bale, who Zidane was assured would be sold. “It would be best for everyone,” he said.Hazard did sign, for 100 million euros, but arrived overweight and then got injured, the opening sequence of his nightmare first year in Spain.Instead of a sparkling new era, Zidane was handed more of the same but when the inevitable questions came about broken promises, he refused to stoke the fire.“The decisions that are up to me are on the pitch,” he said.The trouble was those were no better. Draws against Valladolid and Villarreal were followed by humiliation in Paris. Defeat by Real Mallorca in October left Zidane on the brink of the sack.“I know how this works,” said Zidane, with Jose Mourinho ready, but perhaps that jolted the players, who beat Galatasaray 1-0 and began to turn the tide.Zidane grows bolderZidane escaped and grew bolder. Fede Valverde came into his midfield and proved the catalyst for change, the Uruguayan bringing dynamism and chaos to an all-too predictable midfield.“He’s amazing,” said Kroos. “I love this player.”The defence tightened too, conceding nine goals during a crucial run of 21 games unbeaten either side of Christmas.Ferland Mendy proved a more reliable alternative to Marcelo at left back while in goal, Thibaut Courtois blossomed.“Even as someone who prefers exciting, attacking football, the defence is the most important thing right now,” Zidane said.In attack, he trusted two young Brazilians, Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo, and between them, Karim Benzema found arguably the best form of his entire career.“My job is to transmit a sense of calm in the difficult moments,” he said. “To be quiet, patient and positive.”That ability to exude confidence and diffuse pressure appeared even more valuable as Barcelona descended into turmoil and sacked Ernesto Valverde, the coach that at least kept the team happy, and winning.And when the coronavirus pandemic hit, Madrid’s players reacted better, coming back revitalised, more determined than ever that an 11-match sprint would end with a trophy.“After lockdown there was something very particular,” said Zidane on Wednesday. “I could see it in training. The players wanted something.”Zidane had a bigger squad than Barcelona’s but his willingness to rotate became key.Tournaments have also been his strength and perhaps he rekindled that mentality. With no time for training, the message was simple: Win.In that sense, Zidane has silenced the doubters, even if it remains to be seen whether he can rebuild a team or replicate his success elsewhere.But just as this Madrid were a mess without him, with him they are celebrating again.Few expected him there but Zidane was right in his first press conference. “Change is for the future,” he said. “The important thing is I’m back.”last_img read more
