first_imgApr 29, 2009Dr. Margaret Chan, head of the World Health Organization, today raised the agency’s pandemic alert level to phase 5, one notch below a full-scale influenza pandemic, signaling that it’s time for all countries to prepare. [Margaret Chan’s statement]The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today reported a total of 91 confirmed cases of swine flu in 10 states, with 51 cases in New York City. Besides New York, affected states and case numbers are Arizona, 1; California, 14; Indiana, 1; Kansas, 2; Massachusetts, 2; Michigan, 2; Nevada, 1; Ohio, 1, and Texas, 16. [CDC swine flu page]Fukuda said the WHO knew of 114 confirmed swine flu cases in seven countries as of 5 p.m. Geneva time today. These included 13 in Canada, 64 (with 1 death) in the United States, 26 (with 7 deaths) in Mexico, 2 in Israel, 4 in Spain, 2 in the United Kingdom, and 3 in New Zealand.A 22-month-old boy from Mexico City died in a Houston, Tex., hospital earlier this week, marking the first swine flu death in the United States and the first outside Mexico, the Texas Department of Health Services reported today. The boy’s close contacts have remained healthy, officials said. [TDHS news release]Germany reported three swine flu cases and Austria reported one, according to a Reuters report today. The patients included a Bavarian couple in their 30s, a 22-year-old woman from Hamburg, and a 28-year-old Austrian.New York and Indiana have received their full allotments of influenza antivirals from the Strategic National Stockpile, and all other states will receive theirs by May 3, Dr. Richard Besser, acting CDC director, said in a press briefing held by the US Department of Health and Human Services.A “reference strain” of the swine flu H1N1 virus has been isolated by the CDC and sent to vaccine manufacturers, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said at the HHS briefing, adding that limited pilot lots of vaccine could be available for human trials in “early fall.”The US Food and Drug Administration has organized its swine-flu response into an “incident management” structure of seven teams—vaccine, antivirals, personal protective equipment, blood needs, diagnostic research, shortages, and consumer protection—acting FDA Commissioner Dr. Joshua Sharfstein said at the HHS briefing.Viral geneticist Andrew Rambaut, from the University of Edinburgh, told Wired magazine yesterday that the H1N1 virus detected in the global swine flu outbreak doesn’t have human or avian components, but is instead a reassortment of two pig viruses, North American and Eurasian, which have never been detected in pigs or humans before. Two other experts, and reportedly a document from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), confirmed the findings.Only 3 of 14 US swine flu patients with known travel histories had been in Mexico, the CDC said in an MMWR Dispatch last night. Forty of the 64 confirmed cases were not linked to travel or to another confirmed case. [Apr 28 MMWR Dispatch]Between Apr 19 and 27, federal officials checked 15 sick travelers entering the United States from Mexico and confirmed that 2 of them had swine flu, the CDC said in the MMWR Dispatch. Nine travelers remained in isolation pending further evaluation, and four travelers were released.last_img read more

(Photo by Sean M. Haffey/Getty Images)ExpandANAHEIM — The equipment manager in each team’s home clubhouse is traditionally charged with assigning jersey numbers. Since 2009, the Angels’ equipment manager has been a man named Keith Tarter.When Tarter handed Mike Trout a number 27 jersey on the day of his major league debut – July 8, 2011 – Trout decided to quietly accept his fate.“When you get called up to the big leagues, you don’t really want to ask the clubbie the first day to get a different number if you want a different number,” Trout said. “He just gave me 27.”So it was on Friday that Vladimir Guerrero found himself answering a question about whether or not his uniform number – also 27 – would be retired by the Angels now that he’s in the Baseball Hall of Fame.center_img “We’ve got to wait and see,” Guerrero said through an interpreter, “but the guy in it right now does a very good job with number 27.”Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily.

Sarri says he would have to sell to accommodate Hudson-Odoi

first_imgFILE PHOTO: Chelsea’s Hudson-OdoiLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Maurizio Sarri says Chelsea would have to sell one of their established wingers in order to satisfy Callum Hudson-Odoi’s desire for immediate first-team action. The Italian manager has come under increased scrutiny in west London, having dropped to sixth in the league and with some Blues fans joining in with chants for him to be sacked during Monday’s FA Cup loss to Manchester United.His team are set to contest Sunday’s League Cup final with Manchester City, attempting to avenge a 6-0 humiliation at the Etihad Stadium earlier this month.There were also some jeers when Sarri introduced midfielder Jorginho as a second-half substitute on Thursday.The Italy international, signed in the summer from Sarri’s former club Napoli, is regarded by many as embodying his manager’s ‘Sarri-ball’ philosophy, a strategy that has recently failed to produce results and critics feel is one dimensional.“I think in the first 30 minutes (against Malmo) we understood why Jorginho is very important for our team. We were in trouble to exit from our half, on pressing,” he said.“I hope that our fans will be able to understand that Jorginho, for us, is really a very important player.” Teenage prospect Hudson-Odoi has grown restless at Stamford Bridge and handed in a January transfer request as offers came in from German champions Bayern Munich.The 18-year-old, who has yet to start a Premier League match, seized a rare opportunity by scoring the Blues’ final goal in Thursday’s 3-0 Europa League victory over Swedish club Malmo, wrapping up a 5-1 aggregate success.But manager Sarri called for patience, explaining that he would need to allow Pedro, Willian or Eden Hazard to depart to accommodate Hudson-Odoi now.“You need to understand that, in the same position, we have Pedro, Willian and Hazard,” said Sarri.“I want to remind you that Callum, with this one (against Malmo), played 14 matches. There isn’t in England another 18-year-old player with 14 matches in the first team. So I think that we are using him in the right way at the moment.”“If I am at the club and I want Callum to play consistently, I have to sell another winger,” he added. “Otherwise the manager is in trouble.”center_img Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
