Quarantined!

first_imgFour COVID-positive patients who were quarantined tell their storiesSeafarer was quarantined for a total of 90 daysNurse from the frontlines took it as a time to restBarangay worker depended on God and enjoyed the VIP treatmentNurse in Saudi struggled with anxiety and sleepless nights; said family in PH encouraged her to get well through video callsThere’s nothing like home, they say. That’s why in the earlier part of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, medical and government authorities did not say no to COVID-positive patients choosing home isolation.In the past week, government authorities have made statements discouraging home isolation, blaming that as a factor in the increased transmission of the virus among families and small communities. Only yesterday, government ordered all quarantine facilities around the country to instal wi-fi connection to encourage COVID-positive patients to go to quarantine facilities.Manila Bulletin talked to four people who were quarantined for two  reasons — upon arrival as an overseas worker, and after testing positive for the virus.  Here are their  stories — a seafarer who was on quarantine for a total of 90 days, from his ship to a foreign country, to the Philippines, to his hometown; a nurse who viewed the isolation as a staycation; a barangay administrator who took delight in the “VIP treatment”; and an overseas worker who struggled with anxiety attacks and sleepless nights fearing that she wouldn’t wake up from sleep. The seafarerIt was in the middle of May when suddenly the ship that was “home” to a Filipino seafarer became uncomfortable ground.The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) had been declared a pandemic, and around the world, countries had closed borders. For seafarers like Joelex Segui, 29, from Camarines Sur, it meant that work stopped and he now had to go through the mandatory quarantine before any person is allowed entry into a country and finally entry to his hometown.LONG JOURNEY HOME– Segui’s long journey back home started at the ship, which they were not allowed to leave until cleared, followed by a series of stops at every border in Malaysia, Philippines, and in his hometown in Camarines Sur.He did not realize that this was only going to be the start of a 90-day quarantine from one place to another until he was finally allowed to be home with his family in Camarines Sur.Anxiety took over the ship, each one entertaining thoughts of “what if I contracted the virus?” In several cruise ships in other parts of the world, the virus had infected passengers and crew.“Nakakabagot na nakakalungkot at nakakatakot. Syempre dahil malayo kami sa pamilya namin. At tuloy pa rin ang pagtaas ng kaso ng COVID. Gusto namin na kaagad makauwi. Kasi takot kami para sa pamilya namin (It was sad and frightening. While cases of COVID-19 continued to rise, we were away from our families. We wanted to go home immediately because we were worried about our families),” Segui said.For two months, Segui and the officers and crew of the ship were quarantined. It was only in July, after all of them tested negative for the virus when they were all allowed to disembark in Malaysia, on their way back to the Philippines.Entering every border – first in Malaysia where the ship docked, then in Manila, and then in his town – required a quarantine period. He was on quarantine in a hotel in Malaysia for 12 days.  Then in Manila, he was again in quarantine for 8 days before he was allowed to go home after testing negative for COVID-19. CLOSED BORDERS — Joelix Segui, 28, who works as a guard and driver of the ship, was among the thousands of Filipino seafarers stuck on sea when all borders around the world closed due to the pandemic. At his hometown, he was required by the local government unit to quarantine in a barangay facility for 14 days.From the comfortable quarters in his ship, to the hotels in Malaysia and Manila, his new quarantine facility was in a village facility which he said was quite uncomfortable. He opted to stay in a nipa hut near the quarantine facility where he hoped he could rest in comfort. Before he transferred, his father had to fix the damaged parts of the hut so that he would not get wet when it rained.His family brought him food everyday, leaving it outside the door. And from a distance, they would wave at him.Healthcare workers came to check on him every three days.Things went well until the ninth day when he experienced difficulty in breathing. On that day, he also learned that one of his colleagues in Manila had tested positive for the disease. “Nakakatakot, nakakapraning. Araw-araw ko nakikita ang anak ko. Iniisip ko, malapit na anak. After almost 12 months, mayayakap na kita. Kaya lang paano kung ako rin? Paano kung may virus ako (It was frightening! I saw my daughter every day from a distance. I thought, I was  almost there, I could finally hug my child after almost 12 months of absence. But what if I have the virus)?” Segui said.On his 10th day of quarantine in the nipa hut, he was transferred to the local government facility located three kilometers away from his home. He had to be isolated with 13 other patients who had also tested positive for COVID-19.Two weeks later, the result of his swab came in – he was negative for COVID! “Masaya (Happy),” was all he managed to say when he was finally told to pack his things and go home. He could only think about holding his little daughter in his arms after a long journey back home — 90 days of being in quarantine. The nurse After working almost 16 hours a day as a frontliner since the pandemic broke out, a 30-year-old oncology nurse looked at his isolation as a “time to rest and recharge.”Bobby, not his real name, tested positive for COVID-19 last August 5. He was asymptomatic.He was immediately admitted in the hospital’s quarantine facility.The first day inside the facility was an adjustment, he said, because all of a sudden his daily routine was reduced to being in a room with two other strangers, doing nothing but trying to trace back all his possible contacts.“Madaming uncertainties, pero nawala naman lahat yung worries nung sinerve yung food namin, may welcome fruits, may toiletries din, air-conditioned yung room and may wifi, technically short of staycation yung situation ko/namin dito (There were a lot of uncertainties at first but it suddenly disappeared when they served the food, there was a tray of welcome fruits, toiletries, Wi-fi connection. My room was air conditioned.  My situation was technically short of a staycation),” he said.Nights within the facility were fine and quiet and the days started whenever you wanted it to start. It’s totally up to you, Bobby said.While mild anxiety was quick to kick in upon learning that he was COVID-positive, he thought of it as God’s intervention to give him rest after the long hours of work with only a week of break since the start of the pandemic.“I keep telling myself that God had reason for bringing me here. Maybe I was already overworked for the past few months when the pandemic broke out. I was assigned to the COVID unit for two months, then back to the cancer unit from where I was originally. I had a one-week rest but that’s it. My colleagues and I have been working non-stop. So in hindsight, I was just given time to rest and recharge, only I am not with my family and friends,” he said.Bobby was finally cleared on August 17 after testing negative for the disease. He is back at the frontlines.The barangay administrator Alexi Quicho Santos, a barangay administrator, also found his stay at the quarantine facility at the World Trade Center comfortable.BACK AT THE FRONTLINES — After undergoing a ‘VIP-like’ quarantine at the World Trade Center, Alexi Quicho Santos is now back at the frontlines of the pandemic working as a barangay administrator who handles distribution of assistance to indigent families and solo parents in Navotas. “VIP treatment, it’s like we were booked in a hotel, I had a personal cubicle complete with hygiene products, linen, pillow, bed, and personal table,” the 34-year-old Santos said.It was a tough experience, he said, but because “the enemy is unseen” he also depended on the unseen.“Mahirap kung mahirap pero dahil ang kalaban natin hindi nakikita –yung coronavirus, mas nag-depend lang talaga ako sa hindi din nakikita — si God. Alam kong makakauwi din naman ako at parang two weeks rest day lang yung ni-treat ko sa pag stay ko doon sa isolation facility (It’s tough but because the enemy is unseen, I also depended on the unseen — God. I knew I can go home and that I was only at the isolation facility for two weeks of ‘rest day’),” Santos said.There wasn’t a time when Santos felt he was a patient. “It was as if they I was a hotel guest,” he said and went on to keep a positive outlook while under quarantine.In order to get the anxiety off his mind, he even thought of himself playing the role of a “housemate” in the famous reality TV show “Big Brother House.” On July 27, he finally tested negative and was sent home.“I was very excited to see my family again and go back to service as a frontliner,” Santos said. He is now back at being a barangay administrator in Tangos-South, Navotas City where he helps in handling the distribution of cash assistance for indigent families and solo parents affected by the pandemic.The nurse in Saudi For Aubrey Rose Enriquez, 25, a nurse working in Saudi Arabia, nights in an isolation facility was the most dreaded part of the day especially because she was in a foreign country.“At first nakakapanibago and may fear, and ‘di mo alam kung ano ba ang nangyayari sa labas kasi bawal lumabas. Nakakatakot kapag gabi, kasi nagiging anxious ako. Then takot akong matulog sa gabi gusto ko gising lang ako hanggang sa mag umaga (It was unusual at first as fear was there because you don’t know what’s happening outside. It’s scary at night because I became anxious. I was scared of going to sleep, I just wanted to be awake until morning),” Enriquez shared.“I was really anxious while inside the quarantine facility. I was crying. I was afraid to sleep because I might not wake up the next day,” she said.Enriquez was found positive for COVID in July upon arrival in Taif City in Saudi Arabia, from a vacation in the Philippines.Being away from her family while going through those tough times was the hardest part, she said, but it was also her family back home who encouraged her to get well.She was able to get through those scary nights by looking forward to the next morning that would start with a video call from her family.“I was alone in the facility. I didn’t know if being alone helped but I just kept on praying,” Enriquez said.She stayed for 20 days inside the quarantine facility provided for healthcare workers of the hospital where she worked.On July 31, she was finally discharged and went back to being a medical frontliner.“I was very happy because I could finally sleep well. The scary nights are gone. I won’t be thinking about a lot of things every night,” she said. SIGN UP TO DAILY NEWSLETTERCLICK HERE TO SIGN-UPlast_img read more

Rick Barnes debuts with exhibition win for Vols

first_imgUniversity of Tennessee logoUniversity of Tennessee logo Tennessee coach Rick Barnes gathers players in a huddle during the second half against Alabama-Huntsville on Nov. 6, 2015.Tennessee coach Rick Barnes gathers players in a huddle during the second half against Alabama-Huntsville on Nov. 6, 2015.KNOXVILLE — Fans at Tennessee’s Thompson-Boling Arena were introduced to the men’s basketball program’s second new coach in as many years Friday night when the Vols hosted Alabama-Huntsville in their only exhibition game.For those in attendance unfamiliar with Rick Barnes from the 17 seasons he spent at Texas, it was a positive first impression. For those who knew his history, it was a friendly welcome.Thanks to a strong first half and a quick tempo, Tennessee dispatched the Division II Chargers, the defending Gulf South Conference champions, 96-83. For the Vols, the rout signaled the end of a dark offseason in which they were forced to let go of their second coach in five years for NCAA violations. Four days after Donnie Tyndall’s firing, Barnes’ hire became official, bringing an established name with a proven track record to a program in need of a winner.After the game, Barnes said there would be no easy wins for the Vols this season, but for a while, this looked like it would be one. By midway through the first half, Tennessee had started to pull away. By halftime, the Vols’ lead was 62-41, just one point off their points-per-game average from last season. Sloppy defense allowed Alabama-Huntsville to outscore the Vols 42-34 in the second half, but the Chargers came no closer than an 11-point deficit with 2:26 to go.“Defensively, we weren’t very good,” said Barnes, who also pointed out that fatigue played a role down the stretch.  “We’ve got to get a whole lot better than we are right now on the defensive end.”Alabama-Huntsville shot 43.8 percent from the field and had its fair share of uncontested looks at the basket.“It’s easy to get pumped on offense when you hit a shot,” said senior forward Armani Moore, who led all scorers with 29 points. “But we need to learn how to bring the same fire and intensity to the other side.”Four Vols finished in double figures, led by Moore, one of the team’s leading returning scorers, who had a surprising 4-for-6 shooting performance on 3-pointers. The other leading returnee, Kevin Punter, chipped in 25 points. “We’re going to play a lot through Kevin and Armani,” Barnes said. Tennessee shot 13-for-36 for 3-point range. In the second half, the Vols made just three of their 14 attempts. Barnes said he’d like to see the number of shots fall to between 26 and 30 once the season officially starts.Freshman guard Shembari Phillips was one of the only players not to see the floor for the Vols. He was benched for arriving late to the pregame shootaround, according to Barnes.The Vols, who went 16-16 under Tyndall last season, begin the regular season next Friday in Knoxville against UNC Asheville.“This is a good win,” Barnes said. “You look around at what goes on in college basketball this time of year, and these games aren’t easy as you think.”Reach Matt Slovin at mslovin@tennessean.com or on Twitter @MattSlovin.last_img read more

He also made his voice heard on Sunday, a day after the team’s 30-0 loss to unranked Arkansas.“C.J. (Johnson), Cody Prewitt and Laquon said some things,” wide receiver Vince Sanders said. “He had some thoughts about the game as he watched it on TV.”Sanders putting a second-year player in the same vocal leadership category as two fourth-year players speaks volumes, especially when you consider that Johnson and Prewitt may care more about this week’s Egg Bowl against No. 4 Mississippi State than any other two players.Treadwell will be on the sideline at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium on Saturday (2:30 p.m., CBS), which may help the Rebels (8-3, 4-3 SEC) in some small way.“It’s hard once you get down, you lose a couple of games and you lose some great leaders and some great guys and great talents that we’re used to having,” tight end Evan Engram said after the Arkansas game. “It definitely puts us against a wall. I don’t think it’s playing without an edge, but playing under a lot of pressure and sometimes we crack.” Despite missing the last two games Treadwell remains Ole Miss’ leader in receptions (48) and is fourth in the Southeastern Conference. He is second to Sanders in both yards (632) and touchdowns (five), and remains in the top 10 in the SEC in the former.Treadwell is expected to be recovered from his injury, suffered while trying to score against Auburn, by spring practice.last_img read more

Tottenham ‘very interested’ in signing – Luis Campos could help Mourinho…

first_imgAnd it’s not too difficult to believe there may well be something in it. Mourinho spent a lot of time with Lille whilst he was out of work and has good relations, going back some time, with their transfer guru Luis Campos.Le10 Sport now report Tottenham are ‘very interested’ in Boubakary Soumaré, and have been watching the 20 year old midfielder closely.It’s claimed several other clubs are also interested and two have already made concrete offers. Those unnamed clubs are from the Premier League and Serie A, and Le10 goes on to mention interest from Manchester United, Napoli and Inter Milan.Campos presence could help Mourinho, but it’s explained Lille aren’t yet completely sure what they want to do with the player in the winter market.One possibility is selling Soumaré and then keeping him on loan for the rest of the current season.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

Nadal retires to send Del Potro into U.S. Open final

first_imgNEW YORK,  (Reuters) – A weary and wounded world number one Rafael Nadal retired from his U.S. Open semi-final while trailing Juan Martin del Potro 7-6(3) 6-2  yesterday, sending the Argentine back to the Flushing Meadows final for the first time since his 2009 triumph. Nadal, who had never before retired from a U.S. Open match, showed signs of distress almost from the start as he limped noticeably after a gruelling 69-minute opening set.Grimacing with every sudden move, the 17-time Grand Slam winner called for the trainer during the changeover on serve at 2-1 in the second.The defending champion had his knee massaged and re-taped and bravely continued through the second set before telling the umpire he was unable to continue. “I think it was two-all in the first, 15-love, something like this in the first set, that I felt (something),” said Nadal. “I said to my box immediately that I felt something on the knee.“After that, I was just trying to see if in some moment the thing can improve during the match.“But no, was not the day. “I waited as much as I can. You could imagine very difficult for me to say goodbye before the match finish but at some point you have to take a decision.”Nadal’s stamina and famous fitness have been put to the test on the sweltering Flushing Meadows hardcourts as he has logged nearly 16 hours through five matches.The Spaniard was made to work for his place in the last four, needing a fifth set tiebreak to see off Dominic Thiem in the quarters. It was the second time this year that the world number one has retired from a slam as he also quit during his quarter-final against Marin Cilic at the Australian Open in January.“This year have been a fantastic year until this moment,” said Nadal. “I lost four matches. Two of them I had to retire.“Negative thing is two of them have been in quarter-finals and semi-finals of a Grand Slam, close to fight for titles. “That’s frustrating. Is tough for me.”“I feel that I fight all my career against these kind of things.”One of the greatest players of all time, the one chink in the Spaniard’s armour has always been his knees with injuries plaguing him throughout his career.Nadal’s all out, take-no-prisoners attacking style has seen his body absorb more punishment on the court than perhaps any other player, leaving many to wonder just how long the 32-year-old can continue to pound away. “All my career everybody say that because of my style, I will have a short career,” said Nadal. “I am still here.”Del Potro, who has also had his career disrupted by injuries, was not happy to get the victory the way he did but the big-hitting Argentine will now get a chance to raise a Grand Slam trophy nine years after his first.The third seed will now await the winner of the second semi-final between Japan’s Kei Nishikori and Serbia’s Novak Djokovic. “It’s not the best way to win a match,” said Del Potro, who also beat Nadal at the same stage of the 2009 U.S. Open to reach what had been his one and only Grand Slam final.“I love to play against Rafa because he’s the biggest fighter in this sport.“I’m sad for him.”last_img read more

Bunn bags victory at Emerald

first_imgTravellers Rest Golf GroupIt was a Public Holiday on Monday 10th December so no golf was arranged for the TRGG stalwarts, which gave them all an extra days Christmas shopping.  Tuesday 11th December saw a huge turnout of thirty players head off to play Emerald, I think this was because of the lack of golf on the Monday rather than the drawing power of Emerald which always seems to attract the rain and did not disappoint on this occasion either.  It was wet underfoot and we had a downpour in the afternoon which sent everybody scurrying for shelter.  Luckily it didn’t last long but the wet weather of the last month has played havoc with the greens at Emerald which can best be described as ropey.Jeff Bunn.‘Mr. Consistent’ Jeff Bunn (6), complaining that he had not played a lot for the last couple of months and could not possibly play to a six handicap, then went out and shot 36pts to win Division 1.  I was his playing partner and I wish I could play as well as him, especially after not playing regularly.  Jeff has a very short backswing, and I mean short, but he has the advantage of having forearms like Popeye and he smashes the ball a country mile and almost always straight.  He putts well as well and certainly lived up to his nickname of ‘Mr. Consistent’.Division 1 was for golfers up to 14 handicap and Jeff was followed home by ‘Mr. Inscrutable’ Ito Akitoshi (8), another very good player finishing on 35pts, with Jim Cleaver (11) coming third on 34pts.  Jim was another of my playing partners on the day and someone who practices more than anyone else I know in order to improve his game and it is working.  He is lucky as well, even when he had an occasional mishit in the wet conditions the ball always seemed to finish well for him.The Division 2 winner was John Baxter (15) who has obviously mastered the local conditions after his lengthy stay in Thailand and returned the best score of the day with 37pts.  Nigel Ward (17) finished second on 35pts and another consistent high handicapper Ken Brehm (21) made it on to the podium again with 34pts.A final word for the strongest man in the field on the day, Bob Andrews, the man who held the rest up by finishing last and who very sportingly drank from the “booby” prize.Thursday 13th December and our weekly visit to Phoenix (Mountain and Lakes) attracted another large field including the return of the ‘Welsh Wizard’ Alun Webber, only he knows how you can hit a golf ball with that stance, but it is only a matter of time before he hits the top of the leaderboard again.  Welcome back Alun.Ito Akitoshi.Again there were two Divisions; Div 1 was up to 11 handicap and Div 2 was 12 handicap and above.Alan Thomas (6) took the Division 1 title, shooting 36pts with Joe Stranks (10) in second on 33pts and Neil Pittard finishing third on 32.Another Alan, Alan Evans (24) topped Division 2 with 32pts, Mod Chaviraksa stood up for the female contingent (12) by finishing second on 30 and Phil Corbett (28) stood up for the really high handicappers finishing third on 28.I find it amazing that one week at Phoenix all the winners are scoring 40pts plus and the next week no one can beat their handicap, strange indeed.On Friday 14th December a smaller group headed off to the Navy Course to play Plutaluang (North and West).  This time another Thomas, David Thomas (6) finished top of the pile on 37pts, beating that wily Aussie Norman Cheetham (15) into second on 35 and that gentlemanly Irishman Michael Maguire (21) into third on 34pts.Good luck to all you golfers for the coming week!last_img read more

Huskies put to the test

first_imgThe Matawan High School baseball team is facing a serious early-season test with a stretch of six games in eight days. The Huskies are off to a 1-2 start. Coach John Kaye’s team opened the campaign with a 6-2 victory over Keyport, but then fell to St. John Vianney and Raritan, the latter a tough 4-3 decision. With those games in the books, Matawan was slated to begin its busy stretch Monday at Red Bank Catholic followed by a home game against Holmdel yesterday. This afternoon, the Huskies travel to Rumson- Fair Haven before returning home to host Shore Regional on Friday and Freehold Borough the following afternoon. On Monday, Kaye’s crew will visit Manasquan. “If our pitchers throw strikes and we play good defense, we’ll be all right,” Kaye said. “That’s how we played during our scrimmages and we did very well. It all comes down to making the opposition work. If we don’t walk anyone or make any errors, it usually takes three hits to score a run.” A year ago the Huskies went 14-10 overall and 8-4 in the Shore Conference’s Class B North division. However, 14 players graduated from that squad and Matawan has moved back to the Class B Central division after two seasons in B North. “It’s tough bouncing from division to division; we don’t have the feel for our opponents yet in B Central the way I’d like, but it’s something we’ll have to adjust to,” Kaye said. The Huskies entered the season with several pitchers, but they had little varsity experience — none of the returnees posted a decision last year. Mike Horakh has been strong in the early going, earning the win over Keyport and pitching well against Raritan. Jeff Brisner and Yuya Nishajima, juniors D.J. Holmes and Anthony Provenzano as well as sophomore Al Geyer will also see time on the hill. At the plate, Matawan will count heavily on second baseman Rich Vitaliano, who batted .285 last season, as well as fleet-footed center fielder Brian Guisti, a .279 hitter a year ago. Left fielder Albert Rivera and first baseman/ DH Paul Spadacinni, a junior, have been hitting well in the early going. Defense is strength, particularly in the outfield, where Guisti, Rivera and right fielder Zeke Vega are on patrol. Steve Lebowitz, a threeyear starter, is back behind the plate and has been showing some pop at the plate. Vitaliano and Geyer, the shortstop, give the Huskies strength up the middle. Spadacinni and Horakh will split time at first base, with Dan Fiero also seeing some time there. Nishajima, who moves up from the junior varsity, will man the hot corner. Sophomore Christian Knox will see duty at third as well. Knox will back up Lebowitz behind the dish, and he can also play first base. “We’re an inexperienced team, but we do have talent,” Kaye said, “so I’m trying to get them to look at things one game at a time and not get caught up looking ahead. That way we should be around or better than .500 at the state cut-off. I really expect our team to get better as the season moves along.”last_img read more
