Afghanistan to release up to 10,000 prisoners to slow coronavirus spread

first_img“This is a responsible decision to safeguard the health of the people,” Hamidi told a news conference.”The decree is not for those who have committed crimes against national and international security.”Prisons chief Ahmad Rashed Totakhail said between 9,000 and 10,000 inmates would be released over the coming 10 days. UN rights chief Michelle Bachelet has urged countries to protect people held in overcrowded prisons and other enclosed facilities by releasing vulnerable detainees, saying COVID-19 “risks rampaging through such institutions”.Sudan and Ethiopia have recently ordered the release of thousands of prisoners in an effort to slow their own outbreaks.Afghanistan has officially recorded two deaths and 80 cases of coronavirus, but the true figure is feared to be many times higher as the war-torn country struggles to administer tests and screen the influx of people returning from Iran.The upcoming prisoner release is unrelated to a prisoner exchange the Kabul government is currently negotiating with the Taliban as part of an effort to start peace talks.Topics : Afghanistan has ordered the release of up to 10,000 prisoners — mostly women, juveniles and sick people — in a bid to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, officials said Thursday.The move comes after an increase in local COVID-19 cases and as tens of thousands of Afghans return from neighbouring Iran, one of the countries hit hardest by the pandemic. President Ashraf Ghani’s decree was directed at women, young offenders, critically ill patients and inmates aged over 55, said Attorney General Farid Hamidi.last_img read more

first_imgHe added that the Eijkman Institute for Molecular Biology, which had been appointed to spearhead the vaccine development, sought to hand over the finished vaccine seed to state pharmaceutical holding company PT Bio Farma for clinical trials starting January next year.“After the clinical trials are finished and the Food and Drug Monitoring Agency [BPOM] declares it safe, PT Bio Farma will start the mass production at the end of 2021,” the minister went on to say.Read also: Vaccines won’t bring back normal life at once: ExpertsBambang said the country would need at least 540 million doses of vaccine for 270 million Indonesian citizens. Initial studies showed that each person would need at least two shots of the vaccine to be immune to the coronavirus. The national consortium has opened opportunities for at least three private pharmaceutical companies to manufacture the vaccine in order to secure supply.“However, they still need to obtain permits from the BPOM and prepare lines of production specifically designated for the Merah Putih vaccine,” said BambangPresident Joko “Jokowi” Widodo established a national team to accelerate the development of the vaccine as well as to improve the country’s resilience in responding to the outbreak.While Jokowi is set to oversee the team, Coordinating Economic Minister Airlangga Hartarto has been appointed to chair the team’s steering committee. Meanwhile, Bambang was placed in charge of the development of a potential vaccine, with the assistance of Health Minister Terawan Agus Putranto and State-Owned Enterprises Minister Erick Thohir.Topics : The government claims that the development of a local COVID-19 candidate vaccine has reached 50 percent and will be ready for human clinical trials early next year.A national consortium led by the Research and Technology Ministry is currently developing the “Merah Putih” vaccine, named after the nation’s iconic red-and-white flag.“We aim to finish the animal testing process by the end of this year,” Research and Technology Minister Bambang Brodjonegoro said during an online press briefing on Wednesday.last_img read more

La Administración Wolf emite una guía mientras la industria de la construcción se prepara para reanudar el trabajo el 1 de mayo

first_img April 23, 2020 La Administración Wolf emite una guía mientras la industria de la construcción se prepara para reanudar el trabajo el 1 de mayo Español,  Press Release,  Public Health Mientras la industria de la construcción se prepara para reanudar el trabajo, la Administración Wolf emitió hoy una guía dirigida a todas las empresas de construcción y los empleados para mitigar la propagación de la COVID-19.Se permite a las empresas de la industria de la construcción en el estado reanudar las operaciones en persona a partir del viernes 1 de mayo: una semana antes de lo anunciado con anterioridad.Previamente, el Gobernador Tom Wolf y la Secretaria de Salud Dra. Rachel Levine ordenaron que cesaran la mayoría de los proyectos de construcción, a menos que estuvieran apoyando a empresas o actividades de soporte vital o se les concediera una exención para realizar o apoyar actividades de soporte vital.“Mi administración ha tomado medidas concretas y agresivas para proteger la salud y la seguridad públicas, incluida la limitación estricta de los tipos de empresas y proyectos que pueden continuar funcionando durante este tiempo sin precedentes”, dijo Wolf. “Afortunadamente, estas medidas están funcionando y estamos aplanando la curva. A medida que comenzamos a tomar medidas para reabrir el estado, reconocemos que la industria de la construcción es vital para la economía de Pennsylvania y puede funcionar de manera segura con una guía estricta que proteja a los empleados y al público”.La guía, desarrollada a partir de la guía creada por la Asociación de Contratistas Generales de Pennsylvania, ofrece protocolos universales para todas las actividades de la construcción, igual que una guía adicional específica para los proyectos de construcción residenciales, comerciales y públicos.Todas las empresas y empleados en la industria de la construcción deben cumplir con la orden de la Secretaria de Salud que dispone medidas de seguridad empresarial, que exigen que todas las personas presentes en el lugar de trabajo usen máscaras/pantallas faciales a menos que no puedan hacerlo por motivos médicos o de seguridad y exige que las empresas establezcan protocolos cuando descubran que la empresa ha estado expuesta a una persona que es un caso probable o confirmado de COVID-19.Todos los proyectos de construcción deben mantener el distanciamiento social adecuado y contar con estaciones de lavado y desinfección de manos para los trabajadores, al igual que con protocolos de limpieza y desinfección para las áreas de transmisión de alto riesgo. Las empresas deben identificar un “funcionario de seguridad pandémica” para cada proyecto o sitio de trabajo. Asimismo, cuando se trate de proyectos de construcción a gran escala, debe haber un funcionario para cada contratista en el sitio.Los proyectos de construcción residencial pueden no permitir más de cuatro personas en el sitio de trabajo en ningún momento. Entre ellas no se incluye a las personas que requieren el acceso temporal al sitio y que no participan directamente de la actividad de la construcción.En relación con los proyectos no residenciales o comerciales, el número de personas permitidas en las partes cerradas de un proyecto varía en base al tamaño del sitio cerrado. Se recomienda enfáticamente a las empresas de construcción comercial que analicen establecer un plan de seguridad por escrito para cada lugar de trabajo que contenga detalles específicos para ese sitio en particular. La implementación de esta guía debe compartirse con todos los empleados y el funcionario de seguridad pandémica debe implementarla y aplicarla.Los contratistas que realizan trabajos bajo la dirección del estado, los municipios o los distritos escolares deben remitirse a esas entidades públicas para determinar qué proyectos pueden continuar.Los gobiernos locales pueden elegir imponer requisitos más estrictos que los que se expresan en la guía y, en tales casos, las empresas deben cumplir con esos requisitos más estrictos.A los funcionarios locales se les ha asignado la tarea de garantizar que las empresas de construcción sepan que existe esta guía y notificar a las empresas que se recibió una queja por incumplimiento.Las empresas que quieran saber si esta guía les corresponde pueden enviar un correo electrónico al Departamento de Trabajo e Industria a RA-LIBOIS-BUILDINGS@pa.gov.Ver esta página en inglés.center_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more
