Pandemic spells death sentence for India’s non-virus patients

first_imgMany of them had travelled from other cities for now-cancelled appointments and can’t go back due to transport restrictions under the nationwide lockdown that began on March 25.Outpatient departments at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) closed, forcing cancer patients and others with deadly ailments to take shelter in a grimy pedestrian subway and under canvas.Though aid groups have provided some food and medicines, it had been 12 hours since Saryu Das had eaten when AFP met him.His son, who had mouth cancer, lay on a thin mattress with his face covered by a scarf. Flies hovered around him. Four days later, he died.Waste littered the subway floor that is now home to more than 10 families unable to get back to their hometowns, with the mattresses so close that social distancing was impossible.The AIIMS did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the death and the patients outside. But hospitals across the vast country of 1.3 billion people have been put on alert and its virus death toll is now above 280.When Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the lockdown, he gave millions of Indians taking life-saving drugs only four hours’ notice.Amulya Nidhi, a health activist based in Madhya Pradesh state, told AFP the government knew that vulnerable patients -– including those with silicosis and tuberculosis, which kills tens of thousands each year in India, as well as pregnant women — were at risk.”I’m getting distress calls from across India over access to basic medicines and treatment,” said Nidhi.”It is important to expand healthcare facilities to fight COVID-19. At the same time, hospitals and ambulances have to be available for patients with other problems,” he said.In February, 39-year-old Maitri Lakra was found to be in the initial stages of tongue cancer. Being HIV-positive only added to her woes.Doctors at AIIMS referred her to their campus in Haryana state for pre-surgery tests, which started mid-March. But 10 days later, she was told that all radiology appointments were postponed.As her condition deteriorated -– bleeding from the tongue and in unbearable pain -– she filed a petition with the Delhi High Court and has finally been admitted to AIIMS.”Her cancer is at stage three now. Had she received treatment on time, this would not have happened,” her son Debashish Dag said.Vinay Shetty, from the Mumbai-based Think Foundation that works with people with the blood disease thalassaemia and organises blood donation camps, said those needing transfusions are among the most vulnerable.”Those needing drugs may not have a problem, but anybody needing blood will,” Shetty said, adding the government had to encourage blood donors.Public health expert Anant Bhan said India’s focus on COVID-19 could lead to other diseases such as tuberculosis spreading.”Family members in lockdown with tuberculosis patients are at risk. After the lockdown is removed and people start social interactions, it could spread the infection the same way COVID-19 patients could spread infection,” Bhan said.”Deaths because of COVID-19 and not directly of it is something that we need to worry about. We need to ensure those who need essential services have it,” he said.And time is already running out for Shahjahan’s fellow patients in the subway and tents outside AIIMS.”The doctors told me they could not do my chemotherapy session now and that they’ll call me when the lockdown is lifted. That call may take weeks,” said 25-year old Rampur resident Mohammed Shan-e-Alam.”Now I can’t go home and I can’t go to the hospital.”Topics : “The authorities just left her to die. Even when they referred us to another hospital, they refused to give us an ambulance,” said Mohammad Khalid, a relative of Shahjahan.The capacity of medical facilities around the world has been stretched by the surge of COVID-19 patients as outbreaks worsen in many countries.It can cause people with other life-threatening diseases to miss out on vital care — especially in places like India, where healthcare systems are shakier.Dozens of people with serious medical conditions are camped outside India’s national medical institute in tents set up by the Delhi government. Liver patient Shahjahan’s family feared the worst when a New Delhi public hospital told her to leave because her bed was needed in a coronavirus unit.The 40-year-old mother had been on a ventilator with an acute infection for almost two weeks when she left Lok Nayak hospital on Tuesday night.She died at her family home in Delhi the next morning. Other hospitals had turned her away because of the pandemic.last_img read more

Report: Exxon selling Norwegian business for $4 billion

first_imgU.S. oil giant ExxonMobil is about to leave Norway, after more than 125 years operating in the Scandinavian country, as it has found a buyer for its assets there, Reuters reported on Thursday, citing unnamed sources.Snorre field offshore Norway. Source: EquinorIt has been widely reported over the past few months that ExxonMobil is looking to sell off all of its assets in Norway, where it holds interests in over 20 producing non-operated oil and gas fields operated by others, as the company is working to meet its $15 billion divestment target.In 2017 the company sold its ownership interests in the ExxonMobil-operated fields Balder, Jotun Ringhorne and Ringhorne East to Point Resources.According to reports, the U.S. company has agreed to sell the remaining assets to Var Energi, a company created recently through a merger between Eni Norway and Point Resources.Reuters has said that the price agreed for the Norwegian business might be up to $4 billion. The Norwegian news website Dagens Naeringlsiv has also reported on the alleged deal, placing the price estimate between $4 billion and $4,5 billion.The acquisition of Exxon’s Norwegian business will make Vår Energi the second-largest company on the Norwegian continental shelf with a production of between 300,000 and 350,000 barrels per day, the Norwegian news website reported.Offshore Energy Today has reached out to Var Energi, seeking confirmation of the reports. The company’s spokesperson said: “As a matter of practice, we do not comment on the details of commercial agreements.”As previously reported, energy intelligence firm Rystad Energy in June reported that per January 1, 2019, ExxonMobil controlled 530 million barrels of oil equivalent on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. The company’s most valuable asset is its stake in the Snorre field, worth almost $700 million, Rystad said.According to the Exxon Norwegian business’ website, ExxonMobil is Norway’s oldest energy company – established in 1893.Offshore Energy Today StaffSpotted a typo?

HSE defends diabetes services in Donegal after councillor’s attack

first_imgThe HSE and responded to claims by a county councillor about the lack of treatment for diabetics in Co Donegal.Cllr Frank McBrearty, himself a diabetic, wants the Irish government to make more funds available so people with diabetes in Donegal have greater access to support and services.He said recently that a major concern for patients with diabetes was the lack of services in podiatry locally following the failure by the HSE to replace the outgoing podiatrist at Letterkenny University Hospital. The Raphoe politician said more had to be done for patients, especially older people, to have easier access to support in the county.“I am calling on the HSE and LUH to overhaul and enhance the services for people living with diabetes,” he said.“Diabetes does not discriminate against children, adults and our older population who suffer from this illness, and women during pregnancy which is becoming more common.‘I want to commend the work that the Donegal branch of Diabetes Ireland does in continuing to highlight the problems within our services. “I am aware of peoples appointments being cancelled three and four times, particularly new patients, and this is not good enough,” he added.”Diabetes can cause other medical problems affecting the kidneys, eye, heart, blood pressure and it can lead to people having to have amputations.”A further concern by Cllr McBrearty is the lack of staff in Donegal clinics for patients in the county.“We need a tenfold increase in the services available and for it to be accessible at a local level in order for people to avail of the services easier,” he said.However, the HSE has responded to the claims and outlined the services offer to diabetics locally.A statement issued to Donegal Daily said a total of 6 Senior Podiatrists (5 whole time equivalents) are employed in Primary Care in Donegal. The statement said these Podiatrists see persons with a medical card 66 years of age and older with a foot pathology, persons with diabetes of any age with a foot pathology and/or persons with moderate to high-risk diabetes with or without a foot pathologyAn average of 44 people per month with diabetic active foot disease were reviewed by Donegal Primary Care in the first four months of 2019, with a total of 242 treatments provided in that period, added the statement.It also outllined how a range of other services are also provided under Primary Care for the treatment and management of diabetes including, Diabetic Retinopathy Screening service.A spokesperson for the HSE said “The majority of people in the Donegal with diabetes who have diabetic retinopathy requiring specialist care are seen at Community eye clinics in Letterkenny, Donegal Town, Dungloe, Lifford, Buncrana and Carndonagh. “There are three Community Ophthalmic Physicians in Donegal with one specialising in Diabetic Eye Disease. All referrals from Diabetic RetinaScreen the National Screening Service for Diabetic Retinopathy are seen initially in the Eye Clinic in Letterkenny or their local community clinic if appropriate with their ongoing follow up in Donegal.“There were 300 new referrals from Diabetic RetinaScreen in 2018. All laser treatment for diabetic retinopathy is performed in Letterkenny. All laser clinics are conducted jointly with a Community Diabetes Nurse Specialist. Children with diabetes who are under 12 and require screening for diabetic retinopathy are seen in community clinics until they are eligible to attend Diabetic RetinaScreen.“There are also Integrated Care Diabetes Nurse Specialists in post who work in collaboration with General Practitioners and Practice Nurses, Primary Care Teams and Acute and Community Hospital Services to provide comprehensive specialist care and education for patients with Type 2 Diabetes.“An on-site clinical service is provided to a large number of GP Practices in Donegal with over 1,200 patients being reviewed in those practices on a yearly basis.“There are structured education programmes available for the Management of Diabetes for eg the DESMOND Programme. People with Diabetes in Co Donegal also have access to the Quality of Life Programme, which equips participants with the skills required to deal with the many challenges that living with a health condition such as diabetes can present.”For more information see: www.hse.ie/eng/health/hl/selfmanagement/donegal/programmes-services/stanford-quality-of-life/HSE defends diabetes services in Donegal after councillor’s attack was last modified: May 28th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:diabetesdonegalHSElast_img read more

Bullpen issues plague A’s in loss to Pirates

first_imgJ.B. Wendelken covered his face with his hands, took a deep breath, then slowly rose from his seat. When he spoke, Wendelken’s frustration was painfully obvious, his words barely above a whisper.A seventh inning that turned sideways on Wendelken ultimately cost the A’s the game — and a chance to string a couple victories together — as they lost, 6-4, to the Pirates on Saturday at PNC Park.At the center of it was the Oakland bullpen and a middle reliever who actually made a pretty good pitch. …last_img read more

10 months agoMerson: Liverpool can end title race in week’s time

first_imgMerson: Liverpool can end title race in week’s timeby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal hero Paul Merson says Liverpool can win the Premier League title in a week’s time.Merson believes if Liverpool win at the Etihad Stadium next month, a seven-point lead would be too much for Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City to overturn.He said, “Leicester vs Manchester City is a big game and a must-win game for City, who are in trouble now as they are four points behind Liverpool.”I mean it has now got down to the situation whereby if Liverpool win at City in a week’s time – it is all over.”So this is a big game for City and a hard one as Leicester can cause you problems But because they have to win, I think they will, but Saturday’s result will have knocked the stuffing out of them and Man City have now lost two of their last three league games.”And before that it looked like they would never ever lose a game, but I see them just winning this one to stay on the coat tails of Liverpool.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Max Lowe hopeful Aberdeen will kick on after tough fixtures

first_imgIt almost appeared Max Lowe’s Aberdeen teammates were left with nothing to show for their efforts on Sunday as Celtic lifted the Betfred Cup in the Hampden final.However, reprieve came the way of the Dons on Wednesday night as they recorded a famous 1-0 victory over Rangers at Ibrox.The on-loan-full-back who put up an impressive display against Rangers is pleased with the team’s progress and believes they are now focused on their weekend fixture against St. Johnstone.Lowe told Evening times:“After being here a couple of weeks, I felt like I’d improved my game. The gaffer took me to one side and told me the things I needed to improve defensively – I still need to improve in the air.”“He will take me aside in training and do one-v-one stuff. Each game, I’m picking up and learning things as I go on.”ABERDEEN, SCOTLAND - MAY 04: Manager of Celtic Neil Lennon celebrates as his side secured the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership title after the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership match between Aberdeen and Celtic at Pittodrie Stadium on May 04, 2019 in Aberdeen, Scotland. (Photo by Ian MacNicol/Getty Images)Lennon praises Celtic’s fan support Manuel R. Medina – May 5, 2019 According to the team manager, the way the supporters behave this season helped the team achieve an eighth consecutive title.“Rangers and Celtic are great teams and I’m happy we’ve been able to keep them quiet. Hopefully, I can do that for as long as I stay.”“With the games in hand, we’re really confident. The final we lost, but everyone said we played really well.”“Hopefully we can kick on and make a run of it. We’ve had a tough week of away games so hopefully, this can serve us well.”“It could have been a terrible week if we lost the final and had lost on Wednesday.”“It would have been hard to kick on again. To get the win is massive for us and a massive confidence boost.”“It could be a season-changer; we can deal with anyone in this league. We showed that on Sunday, never mind on Wednesday, and I think teams in this league will know what kind of team we are.”last_img read more
