first_imgThe head of the European Union agency for disease control said on Monday Britain was one of five European countries yet to begin a downward trend in its coronavirus outbreak, contradicting the British government’s line.As of May 4, Britain had recorded nearly 190,000 coronavirus cases and almost 28,500 deaths. Only Italy in Europe has so far counted more deaths from COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who returned to work last week after himself being seriously ill from COVID-19, said on Thursday Britain had past the peak and was “on the downward slope”. Andrea Ammon, director of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), told EU lawmakers Bulgaria was still recording an increase in cases, while for Britain, Poland, Romania and Sweden the agency had seen “no substantial changes in the last 14 days”.For all other European countries, there was a drop in cases, she said. “As of Saturday, it appears that the initial wave of transmission (in Europe) has passed its peak,” Ammon told lawmakers in a videoconference.The ECDC monitors all 27 EU member countries plus Britain, Norway, Liechtenstein and Island.The ECDC’s assessment on Britain is in line with data on the overall increase of deaths from all causes reported by EuroMOMO, an EU-backed monitoring project on mortality. England, where the largest share of the British population lives, has seen throughout the pandemic the highest rise in deaths over the five-year average among several European nations screened by EuroMOMO.As of April 26, England had Europe’s highest rise of so-called “excess deaths” and recorded an increase from the previous week in the general indictor that tracks death in all ages.It was also the only monitored nation with a “substantial increase” of excess mortality for the 15-64 age group, preliminary data shows.Excess deaths are those above the forecast average.Epidemiologists said these statistics help to build a more complete picture of the overall impact of epidemics, given many fatalities go unreported or misreported when their number surges exponentially in short periods.Excess deaths in the current pandemic likely reflect the broad impact of the coronavirus, Lasse Vestergaard, a senior medical officer at the project, told Reuters.center_img Topics :last_img read more

first_imgLONDON, (CMC) – Former West Indies Test batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul was in sight of yet another half-century as he helped prop up Lancashire on the second day of their County Championship Division One clash against Yorkshire here Saturday.The veteran left-hander was unbeaten on 43 at the close as Lancashire, trailing by 150 runs on first innings ended on 141 for four.Struggling on 81 for four, Lancashire were rallied by Chanderpaul who has so far added 60 in an unbroken fifth wicket stand with South African Dane Vilas, who was unbeaten on 22.Chanderpaul has faced just 64 balls in just under an hour-and-a-half at the crease, and stroked seven fours.Playing at Headingly in Leeds, the 42-year-old suffered a rare failure in the first innings when he fell for just three as Lancashire slumped to 123 all out after opting to bat first on Friday.Seamer Ben Coad snatched six for 25 to destroy the innings.Resuming from their overnight 93 for two, Yorkshire were eventually bowled out on Saturday for 273, with opener Adam Lyth top-scoring with exactly 100.At Hove, Barbados-born England all-rounder Chris Jordan scored 37 as Sussex piled up a massive 579 for eight declared in their first innings.The right-hander put on 91 for the seventh wicket with South African David Wiese (66) to further propel the innings after Sussex had resumed the day in a strong position of 339 for three.Luke Wells, on 139 overnight, fell early in the morning after adding just 16.last_img read more
