The Deputy Director for Community Health Services Division at the Ministry of the Health and Social Welfare, Daniel S.M. Wessih, Jr., has disclosed that about 90 percent of those who received free insecticide mosquito nets in the six statutory districts of River Gee County are not using the nets.He stated that their action might expose the county to malaria outbreak.Mr. Wessih said ‘mosquito nets’ used to prevent mosquitoes, especially the female mosquitoes, from biting the body and causing malaria, have been misused in the county either for fishing purposes, bathing scrub sapoe/siphon, amongst others.Deputy Director Wessih made the startling revelation over the weekend during the formal Logan Town’s Malaria awareness campaign held at the Logan Town General Market, under the theme ‘Get Tested before Treatment.’The health and social worker said the threat of a malaria outbreak means there will be death, because malaria kills.He stated that the information of the malaria statistics is based on reports gathered from the over 90 General Community Health Volunteers, who were assigned in the county during a 10-day ICCM workshop, which ran from the 18th to the 28th of February.The Integrated Community Case Management (ICCM) workshop that was sponsored by UNICEF, brought together over 90 GCHVs in different locations within the county. Diseases highlighted were diarrhea, ARI (Pneumonia) and malaria.Deputy Director Wessih stated that according to the GCHVs’ report, the citizens had regretted the misapplication of the mosquito nets, but are appealing for another donation and have agreed of pay L$2,000 for anyone of them who will be caught misapplying or have misapplied the mosquito nets.He said in order to tackle the scary reports coming from River Gee, they have instructed the GCHVs to be robust about the BCC: meaning, Behavior Change Community.“There are 250 persons to a GCHV so we have encouraged our volunteers to double their rounds to test especially children and child-bearing girls for malaria, and administer the treatment,” Deputy Director Wessih opined.Meanwhile, over 600 persons, mainly women and children were reached during formal Logan Town’s Malaria awareness campaign held at the Logan Town General Market, over the weekend, under the theme ‘Get Tested before Treatment.’The ‘Get Tested before Treatment on Malaria’ official awareness campaign began in Clara Town in December 2013, and was also held in West Point in January this year.The outreach was merely aimed to clarify that not every fever (illness) is malaria therefore people must and should get tested before taking malaria treatment; and if tested positive, they should only take the new globally confirmed malaria tablets called Artemisinin based Combination Therapy (ACT).Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
However, Capello believes both men have lost control and added that Conte probably underestimated how well Mourinho handles the press in these situations.“I think Conte didn’t realise who he was up against,” Capello told Sky Sport Italia. “It’s the Chelsea shirt which winds coaches up. Remember how wound up Mourinho got when he was Chelsea manager? Conte’s just doing what Mourinho used to do.“We all remember Mourinho on his knees in the middle of the field, running wild after his side won.“They’re completely out of their minds. I never thought it could get this far. But remember, when you wind Mourinho up, he’s very clever in these debate situations. Maybe once again he just wants to divert the attention from his team.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Chelsea boss Antonio Conte (right) and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho on the touchline at Stamford Bridge in London on March 13, 2017LONDON, United Kingdom, Jan 11 – Former Real Madrid manager Fabio Capello admits he is surprised how far the feud between Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho has gone, claiming they are out of their minds.Both Conte and Mourinho have continued to take swipes at each other as they build up towards the clash between Manchester Unitd and Chelsea at Old Trafford next month.
A MAN has gone on trial in Letterkenny charged with cruelty to three of his six children.The 48-year-old man – who cannot be named for legal reasons – has pleaded not guilty to six charges.The charges relate to alleged offences between May 1, 2008 and April 22, 2012. The man is accused of cruelty including physical assaults on the children and giving alcohol to two of them.The children are now aged 19, 18 and 15.The daughter now aged 18 cried as she gave evidence before a jury and Judge John O’Hagan as she alleged weekly assaults by her dad.The court heard the HSE removed the children from their parents in January 2008 due to concerns about the father’s drinking.The children were returned to their family home in March 2008, and the prosecution alleged, the father began drinking again six or seven weeks later.The girl told the court that at first everything seemed fine.“Dinner would be on the table when we got home from school and the house was clean,” said the girl who is now in foster care.She said her parents were having the odd drink at the weekend.However after a few weeks her mother would stay away from the house during the week in a friend’s flat to be nearer to her place of work.Her father began drinking heavily, she claimed, sometimes until 7am in the morning.She said each day her older sister would get her father to bed before they woke the younger children, made them breakfast and got them ready for school.The teenager said that on St Patrick’s Day in 2009 she had gone to the shop. She sent a text to her mother and older sister telling them her dad was drinking again.When she got home her dad had shouted at her: “Are you mouthing?”She said her dad had gone to a cupboard, poured himself a rum and coke, and gone into the conservatory.The girl said she went into the kitchen to make food for the other children when her dad then came up behind her and kicked her. She alleged he then banged her head off a cupboard door and when she turned around he head-butted her.When he had finished assaulting her, she claimed he turned around and began strangling her older brother before stopping suddenly.“Any time we stepped out of line we got hit,” she said.Under cross-examination from barrister Peter Nolan, representing the accused man, the teenager said she stood by her allegations.She denied making up the allegations because her father had stopped her from seeing her boyfriend.The witness said she told friends at school about the alleged abuse and later told a teacher.She said her sister also confirmed what had been happening.The teenager confirmed to Mr Nolan that her sister had withdrawn her claims a day later and had written a letter saying the claims were made up because of a row over boyfriends.However the witness said she refused to co-sign the letter.Later a garda interview with a younger sister – now aged 15 – and filmed when she was 11, was played to the jury.In the taped interview the girl said she had been assaulted on a number of occasions by her father.She cried as she claimed her father had grabbed her by the hair and banged her head off a metal part of her bed. She said she wasn’t bleeding after the alleged attack but that she was very sore.On another occasion he had grabbed her by the throat, she claimed, saying her father was always drinking at home.“Even on New Year’s Eve they (her parents) were so angry,” said the girl in the taped interview.She alleged that on another occasion her dad had smashed up furniture including her late granny’s chair.“She wouldn’t have liked what was going on,” she said.The girl then gave evidence in the case.Mr Nolan put it to the girl that she and her older sister had been living together in a care facility between April and June 2012 and that her sister had helped her with what to say in the garda interview.The girl said her sister had been supportive but hadn’t told her what to say.She said she didn’t tell her mother about the physical abuse because she said she wouldn’t have believed her.A primary school teacher who taught the girl when she was at primary school said she had a conversation with the girl walking near her home.She said the girl had a bag over her shoulder and she waved to her. The teacher said she was quite upset and crying and told her she was running away from home.The teacher said the girl said she had left home but didn’t want to say why.“I just tried to calm her down,” said the teacher who returned the girl to her home.The case continues.DAUGHTER CLAIMS DAD HEAD-BUTTED HER DURING ‘YEARS OF CRUELTY’ was last modified: April 29th, 2016 by John2Share 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:courtcrueltydonegal

COUNTY champions Termon have appealed a decision forcing their Ladies team to travel to Clones again this weekend after their Ulster Senior final draw on Sunday.Monaghan champions Donaghmoyne had led by half-time but Termon came back and eventually took a two-point lead through a Geraldine McLaughlin penalty.Donaghmoyne managed to square the game just before the final whistle finishing 1-14 to the Donegal team’s 4-05. The replay is this Saturday – but there was huge disappointment when the Ulster Ladies Council announced that replay will once again take place in Clones, essentially giving Donaghmoyne another ‘home’ game.Today Termon Ladies said they were appealing that decision because they say a replay at Clones is unfair.Said a spokeswoman: “The Ulster Council announced at the game yesterday that the replay will be next Saturday in Clones (again) but obviously that is not fair on our girls to have to travel up to Monaghan again, so they are appealing it.”Some Termon fans are still unhappy at the referee – who played 7 minutes of injury time at the end.
