Brazil likely has 12 times more coronavirus cases than official count, study finds

first_imgTopics : Brazil likely has 12 times more cases of the new coronavirus than are being officially reported by the government, with too little testing and long waits to confirm the results, according to a study released on Monday.Researchers at a consortium of Brazilian universities and institutes examined the ratio of cases resulting in deaths through April 10 and compared it with data on the expected death rate from the World Health Organization.The much higher-than-expected death rate in Brazil indicates there are many more cases of the virus than are being counted, with the study estimating only 8% of cases are being officially reported. Year to date, the number of hospitalizations for severe respiratory symptoms has been over three times higher than usual for the time of year, but only 12% of those have been confirmed as COVID-19, the severe respiratory disease caused by the new coronavirus.”The high degree of under-notification could give a false impression about control of the disease, and consequently, could lead to a decline in containment measures,” the center said.The outbreak has stoked tension in the Brazilian government, with right-wing President Jair Bolsonaro downplaying risks of the virus and urging the country to return to normal, while his health minister, state governors and local officials urge stricter measures.The center has thus far been accurate in predicting the evolution of the virus in Brazil, with the number of confirmed coronavirus cases through March 30 falling within the range that the researchers previously predicted.The researchers are now predicting that by April 20 the number of cases will grow to 25,164 in its most optimistic scenario and 60,413 cases in its most pessimistic.center_img The government has focused on testing serious cases rather than all suspected cases, according to the consortium, known as the Center for Health Operations and Intelligence. The center and medical professionals have also complained of long wait times to get test results.Health Minister Luiz Henrique Mandetta has said that it is difficult to distribute tests in Brazil because of the size of the country but acknowledges that testing needs to improve.Officially, Brazil’s coronavirus death toll rose to 1,328 on Monday, while the number of confirmed cases hit 23,430, according to health ministry data.As of last Thursday, Brazil had had around 127,000 suspected cases and carried out just short of 63,000 tests, ministry figures indicate. A health ministry official on Monday said more than 93,000 tests are still being processed for results.last_img read more

United turn down Chelsea Rooney bid

first_img The stunning development comes less than 24 hours after the depth of Rooney’s anger at comments made by United manager David Moyes became known. With it looking increasingly like Rooney’s nine-year stay at Old Trafford is coming to an end, Chelsea have made their move. And the fact Mata and Luiz have been deemed expendable in such a deal seems particularly significant. That United should dismiss the offer so quickly is no surprise. In recent weeks they have repeatedly insisted Rooney is not for sale, and the idea of selling to a domestic rival is particularly unpalatable. Yet it is difficult to envisage how United can possibly hold that line right until the transfer window closes. It increasingly appears Rooney’s position is impossible, with United fans likely to turn against their one-time hero. And for Moyes, it represents a tricky situation given he is attempting to bolster his squad rather than weaken it. Yet Rooney’s reaction to those comments given in a briefing during United’s stay in Bangkok last week has been the trigger for a further deterioration in the relationship between club and player. Though it is thought Moyes did not wish the comments to come across as disparaging towards Rooney, that is exactly how they have been received with the player, now back in Manchester for treatment on a hamstring injury, said to be ‘confused and angry’ over their content. The offending words were delivered to Sunday newspaper journalists during a briefing with Moyes in Bangkok last week. Moyes said: “Overall, my thought on Wayne is that if for any reason we had an injury to Robin van Persie we are going to need him and I want as many options as possible.” As far as Rooney is concerned, he is at the peak of his career and has no intention of playing second fiddle to anyone, or being reduced to the rank of a squad player. With four Premier League titles and a Champions League winner’s medal to his name, the 27-year-old does not believe he has anything to prove at United. Yet he feels as though he has been put on trial by Moyes at a time when he should be concentrating his efforts on recovering from the hamstring injury that saw him sent home from United’s pre-season tour within hours of landing in Thailand on Thursday. After months of speculation about his future, and no statement of intent to stay from the player, it is now clear that unless there is some major repair work undertaken, Rooney will be leaving. The manner of United’s response is the first major test for Moyes and chief executive Ed Woodward since they replaced Sir Alex Ferguson and David Gill respectively at the beginning of the month. Press Association Manchester United have rejected an audacious bid from Chelsea for Wayne Rooney. It is believed the Blues offered £10million, plus either Juan Mata or David Luiz for the 27-year-old. However, Press Association Sport understands the bid has been rejected out of hand by the Barclays Premier League champions. last_img read more

France prepare counter-attacking set-up to face Ireland

first_img “That pairing works well,” said Saint-Andre. “Fred Michalak is like a red wine, he only gets better with age. “And importantly, he is, along with Morgan Parra, the only back with (prior) World Cup experience. “I think all the pressure is on the shoulders of Ireland. “They are favourites and it would be a huge shame for them if they lost on Sunday. If you want to be world champion, it’s good to win your pool matches. “Sunday’s match is against one of the world’s leading rugby powers, fifth in the rankings. “There might be 35 or 40,000 Irish fans in the stadium with a closed roof for what will be a very intense, high-quality game. “I trust in the 15,000 who will make some noise for us!” France team to play Ireland: S Spedding; N Nakaitaci, M Bastareaud, W Fofana, B Dulin; F Michalak, S Tillous-Borde; E Ben Arous, G Guirado, R Slimani, P Pape, Y Maestri, T Dusautoir (capt), D Chouly, L Picamoles. Replacements: B Kayser, V Debaty, N Mas, A Flanquart, B Le Roux, M Parra, R Tales, A Dumoulin. “Ireland have a very attacking kicking game and score lots of points off up-and-unders and cross-field kicks,” said Saint-Andre. “So to start with two players who are full-backs is a bid to unnerve the Irish and have options for counter-attacking. “Brice (Dulin) is a good player, he knows how the France team functions because he has been with us since the outset. “Ireland put a lot into their offensive kicking. “So this is to counter that tactic and to create possibilities for ourselves on counter-attacking from those positions.” Saint-Andre insisted Ireland are favourites for Sunday’s Millennium Stadium clash, backing half-backs Sebastien Tillous-Borde and Frederic Michalak to boss the game for Les Bleus. France’s players have spent the week winding up the tension through barely-veiled threats on the physical assault that will be coming Johnny Sexton’s way in Cardiff. The inclusion of power wing Noa Nakaitaci and number eight Louis Picamoles only adds to that motorcade of juggernauts, spearheaded by centre Mathieu Bastareaud. Philippe Saint-Andre has ordered France to go all-out to “unnerve” Ireland and outdo Joe Schmidt’s men at their very own high-ball tactics. France boss Saint-Andre has paired Brice Dulin and Scott Spedding – two full-backs – in his back three and admitted doing so purely to counter Ireland’s much-vaunted tactical kicking game. Sunday’s victors will top Pool D and meet Argentina in the last eight, avoiding New Zealand in the process. Press Associationlast_img read more
