(LONDON) Court Report: Three men have been jailed for a combined total of 45yrs on Friday after a 16yr-old-schoolgirl was subjected her to rape in a residential flat where she was held against her will back in 2016 #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Apr.05: Roberto French, 22 (26.11.97) of Gordon Road, Enfield; Abdisalam Mohamad, 21 (24.06.98) of College Gardens, N18; and, Hilal Mohamed, 22 (02.02.98) of Warwick Road, N18, were found guilty of raping the teenager following the conclusion of a trial on Thursday, 6 February at Wood Green Crown Court and all three were sentenced on Friday April.03:

Court Report: Three men have been jailed for Combined 45yrs on Friday for restraining and raping a 16yr-old-teenager

The jury further convicted French of the offences of robbery and false imprisonment against the same victim: French was sentenced to 17 years for rape, five years for robbery and 10 for false imprisonment, to run concurrently: Abdisalam Mohamad and Hilal Mohamed were both sentenced to 14 years each:

Court Case Notes: The court heard how the victim had travelled to London from Bristol on 13 August 2016 where French held a machete against her throat whilst he robbed her in the presence of the other defendants: French falsely imprisoned the victim in a residential block in Enfield, and it was here that she was forced by the defendants to perform oral sex on each of them: Once the ordeal was over, French followed the victim as she attempted to make her escape: He was arrested on 15 August 2016: Mohamad was arrested on 26 May 2017 and Mohamed on 12 February 2018. All were subsequently charged:

In sentencing, His Right Honourable Judge Perrins said the victim “deserves significant credit for persevering with this case as the years went by, even when it seemed nothing was happening: She has shown real inner strength and resolve in seeing this matter through.”

Detective Sergeant Charlotte Carter: “I welcome the sentences passed by HHJ Perrins. These sentences reflect the severity of the offences committed and the victim and her family have shown tremendous strength, patience and resilience in supporting a prosecution and I would like to personally thank them for their courage: “I would also like to extend my gratitude to DC Black, DC Cron and DI Windsor for their tenacity and dedication to bring this case to a successful conclusion: “It is because of the victim’s strength and the commitment of the prosecution team that three dangerous sexual offenders have been jailed for a significant period of time. I hope these sentences serve as a deterrent to those who commit serious sexual offences.”

(BALTIMORE, Md.) Coronavirus Latest Report: In a challenge for more ‘ ventilators ‘ a team l ed by John Hopkins University Engineers are developing and prototyping a 3D-printer-splitter that will allow a single ventilator to treat multiple patients addressing the concerns over cross-contamination and once ap proved by the FDA, they plan to publish their open-source design for others to use #AceHealthDesk report

#AceHealthReport – Apr.05: In response to a pressing need for more ventilators to treat critically ill COVID-19 patients, a team led by Johns Hopkins University engineers is developing and prototyping a 3D-printed splitter that will allow a single ventilator to treat multiple patients: Though medical professionals have expressed concerns about the safety and effectiveness of sharing ventilators, the team has designed this tool to address those concerns:

Johns Hopkins engineers develop 3D-printed ventilator splitters

Their prototype, developed in response to the urgent need for more ventilators to treat patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome caused by COVID-19, aims to address safety concerns about cross-contamination and correctly managing air flow to patients

Catherine Graham 3-days ago: https://hub.jhu.edu/2020/04/02/3d-printed-ventilator-splitters-for-covid-19/

“There is an emphasis right now on using engineering to develop open-source solutions to many aspects of the COVID-19 crisis, but especially for ventilator design and production,” said Sung Hoon Kang, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering at the Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering who is leading a team that includes ICU intensivists and pulmonary specialists at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. “One approach is to use one ventilator to treat multiple patients. While this is feasible, it must be safe for all the patients. That means ensuring that each patient gets the care they need, without shortchanging anyone. This is what we set out to create.”

A serious lung condition called acute respiratory distress syndrome, or ARDS, is the leading cause of death for COVID-19 patients: In individuals with ARDS, fluid builds up in the lungs, limiting the amount of oxygen in the bloodstream and depriving vital organs of the oxygen they need to function properly. The condition must be managed by a ventilator: As the COVID-19 outbreak spreads, many health care facilities are grappling with a shortage of the machines needed to treat the sickest patients: Such shortages have already effectively crashed the health care system in Italy, which currently reports the world’s highest number of COVID-19-related fatalities at more than 13,000.

Some medical professionals have expressed concerns about the practice of sharing ventilators: First, hooking up several patients to the same ventilator could spread germs and create a chance for cross-contamination. Another concern is that a ventilator shared by multiple people wouldn’t give all of them the necessary level of oxygen, which could lead to poor patient outcomes and high mortality rates.

According to Kang, the team’s new design aims to safeguard against these risks: The new design includes an air-flow controller and flow meters, allowing clinicians to monitor and adjust air flow for each patient. The air volume controller is a key addition because each intubated patient requires different flow control. The team is also adding a filter designed to prevent cross-contamination between patients—important because early reports suggest that those exposed to multiple infected people experience worse outcomes.

The splitter also must be easy to deploy, given the urgency of the need: “We need a robust design, but one that can be produced with a relatively simple manufacturing process like 3D printing,” says Christopher Shallal, a member of the team and a junior majoring in biomedical engineering. “We are also considering the different conditions and settings where people may be printing the ventilator splitters. For instance, they may not have a high-resolution printer available. So we are keeping scalability in mind as we design.”

Splitting ventilators is an experimental emergency treatment that has been used before under dire circumstances, such as during the aftermath of the 2017 Las Vegas shooting, when splitters were used to stabilize injured but otherwise healthy young adults: But splitting a ventilator to treat multiple patients in varying stages of lung failure presents a new and somewhat daunting set of design challenges, according to Julie Caffrey, assistant professor of plastic and reconstructive surgery at Johns Hopkins Medicine and a member of the team.

” Using the same ventilator settings for ARDS patients with different lung compliances could be very unsafe. One patient might receive too much air; the other might not receive enough,” Caffrey explains. “With ARDS, ventilator strategies for improving survival are often used to administer low tidal volume and higher pressure. If you can’t manage that, you risk causing further trauma to lungs that are already very crippled. It’s very important that when we split a ventilator, we can still set the ventilator to that specific patient.”

The team has produced the prototype and hopes to finalize and start testing their design on model lungs within weeks: Once approved by the FDA, they plan to publish their open-source design for others to use: “The goal here is to quickly get this technology to hospitals around the world—and right to the people who need it the most,” says Helen Xun, a member of the team and a third-year medical student at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.

(BRUSSELS) #Coronavirus EU Business Report: European Commission approves a series of multi-billion-euro state support packages for Greece, Poland and Portugal to help the economic impact of the #pandemic through grants and loan guarantees but how long before members realise that the bloc only provides for those that makeup the rules and regulations and others pay #AceFinanceDesk report

#AceFinanceReport – Apr.04: The Commission, which enforces EU anti-trust regulation, loosened its rules last month to allow EU governments to support businesses and banks after factories began to fall quiet and Europeans were ordered to stay home to stop the virus spreading: In a series of statements late on Friday and on Saturday, the Commission approved a 13-billion-euro state aid program for the Portuguese economy, a 22-billion-euro plan of state guarantees for Poland and a 2-billion-euro scheme for Greece:

#Coronavirus Report: EU approves coronavirus state support for Portugal, Poland, Greece With Grants and Loan Guarantees

The schemes were judged not to distort EU competition:

“This Polish guarantee scheme will help Polish businesses affected by the current coronavirus crisis cover their immediate working capital and investment needs,” Commission Executive Vice-President Margrethe Vestager said in a statement:

For Portugal, Vestager said the 13 billion euros would “enable Portugal to provide direct grants and public guarantees on loans to help small-and-medium-sized companies and large companies cover investment and working capital needs”.

The Greek scheme allows for state guarantees on working capital loans, Vestager said:

(WISCONSIN) LATEST: Teenager arrested on Thursday in deaths of ‘ University Doctor & Husband ‘ Beth Potter, 52, and Robin Carre, 57, who were found lying in a ditch in the arboretum by a jogger around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday morning #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.04: A teenager has been arrested in connection with the slayings of a University of Wisconsin-Madison doctor and her husband, authorities said Friday:

Teenager arrested On Thursday in deaths of University of Wisconsin doctor and her husband found dead on Tuesday police said in a news release

Beth Potter, 52, and Robin Carre, 57, were found lying in a ditch in the university arboretum by a jogger around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday morning, university police said in a news release. Carre was pronounced dead at the scene and Potter was transported to a local hospital where she died, police said: University police said they arrested Khari Sanford, 18, on Thursday. He was booked into the Dane County Jail on two counts of “party to a crime for first degree intentional homicide.” ………….CNN’s attempts to find whether he was represented by a lawyer weren’t immediately successful:

“The suspect is known to the family — and we believe that this was not a random act. It was calculated, cold-blooded, and senseless,” university Chief of Police Kristen Roman said: Potter was a physician at the Access Community Health Centers Wingra Family Medical Center, and also served as the medical director of Employee Health Services for UW Health, according to the University website.

“There are so many in our department whose lives have been touched by Beth; her loss will weigh heavily within us,” Dr. William Schwab, professor and interim chair for the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health, wrote on the medical school website: Potter taught and mentored medical students and family medicine residents, many of whom went on to join the departmental faculty, the website said: Dane County Supervisor Richard Kilmer called Potter a very compassionate person, according to CNN affiliate WKOW, saying he became Potter’s patient twenty years ago…………”She helped me when I was in a really bad spot in my life,” he said.

Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association President Craig Carlson says he’s spent years on the sidelines of soccer matches with Carre, who headed up a Madison, youth soccer club, reported WKOW: “All of my memories of him are pretty fond,” Carlson says. “I think they’re two of the nicest human beings I’ve ever been around.”Carre’s professional consulting work involved helping high school students prepare themselves for college admissions: The couple is survived by three children in their teens and twenties.

Number of Cases & Deaths in last 24-Hours:

As of 9am on 4 April 2020, 183,190 people have been tested, of which 41,903 were confirmed positive: As of 5pm on 3 April 2020, of those hospitalised in the UK who tested positive for coronavirus, 4,313 have died: Data on UK positive and negative tests and data on deaths is updated on this page daily at 2pm or shortly after. The figures for test results and for deaths are compiled from different sources. This is why the figures for deaths are reported from an earlier point in time than the figures for test results.

Notes on Deaths Figures:

The figures on deaths relate in almost all cases to patients who have died in hospital and who have tested positive for COVID-19. Slight differences in reporting in devolved administrations may mean that they include a small number of deaths outside hospital. The figures are compiled from validated data provided by NHS England and Improvement, Health Protection Scotland, Public Health Wales and the Public Health Agency (Northern Ireland).

These figures do not include deaths outside hospital, such as those in care homes, except as indicated above. This approach allows us to compile deaths data on a daily basis using up-to-date figures. The data includes confirmed cases reported as at 5pm the previous day. The amount of time between occurrence of death and reporting in these figures may vary slightly and in some cases could be a few days, so figures at 5pm may not include all deaths for that day.

In addition to these figures, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) publishes weekly counts of deaths in which COVID-19 was mentioned on the death certificate. This publication is issued every Tuesday, starting on 31 March. It includes cases outside hospital and also some cases where COVID-19 is suspected but no test has taken place. ONS data will initially cover England and Wales only and will report on deaths registered up to 11 days before publication, so up to 20 March for their first release.

Material published by Public Health England

Public Health England update a daily dashboard later the same day, to show trends in UK data on positive tests and deaths and to provide confirmed cases in each local authority and NHS region in England.

Risk Level:

The risk to the UK has been raised to high.

Recent Government Action:

The government published its coronavirus action plan on 3 March.

On 10 February, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Matt Hancock, announced strengthened legal powers to protect public health.

The Health Protection (Coronavirus) Regulations 2020 have been put in place to reduce the risk of further human-to-human transmission in this country by keeping individuals in isolation where public health professionals believe there is a reasonable risk an individual may have the virus.

(WASHINGTON) #Coronavirus Report: USCG Overseas disembarkation of 250,000 from cruise ships to reduce risks under #COVID-19 emergency 31-life-saving medevac’s and yesterday the cruise ships Zaandam and Rotterdam offloaded more than 1,200 passengers in Port Everglades, Fla. as it continues with processing 120- vessels #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Apr.04: These developments, combined with one remaining disembarkation being coordinated, represents the processing of more than 120 vessels in the last three weeks to remove 250,000 passengers from cruise ships due to the #COVID-19 #pandemic:

#Coronavirus Report: Coast Guard oversees disembarkation of 250,000 from cruise ships to reduce risks under COVID-19 emergency, medevac’d 31

Coast Guard oversees disembarkation of 250,000 from cruise ships to reduce risks under COVID-19 emergency, medevac’d 31

Release Date: Apr. 3, 2020

For Immediate Release

The Coast Guard, under guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and working with Department of Homeland Security partners Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), as well as state and local entities from multiple port jurisdictions, facilitated the safe landing, screening, quarantine and repatriation of these passengers in a manner that has prevented further spread of the COVID-19 virus. Many passengers were brought to safe harbor in the United States when international ports refused entry:

Most of the cruise line industry announced a voluntarily suspension of cruise ship operations from U.S. ports of call on March 13th, and the CDC issued a “No Sail” Order on March 14th to all cruise ships that had not voluntarily suspended operations.

“We commend the decision by the cruise industry to cease operations. However, pausing a global tourist industry does not happen instantaneously or easily,” said Vice Admiral Dan Abel, Coast Guard Deputy Commandant for Operations. “The Federal, state, local and industry cooperation to achieve this feat truly represents the whole-of-nation approach directed by the President and is essential to fighting the spread of this virus and working to minimize the loss of life.”

The drawdown of passenger operations is a major milestone, but it does not eliminate U.S. government concerns for cruise ships and their crews: Today, there are 114 cruise ships, carrying 93,000 crew members, either in or near U.S. ports and waters. This includes 73 cruise ships, with 52,000 crew members, moored or anchored in U.S. ports and anchorages. Another 41 cruise ships, with 41,000 crew members, are underway and still in vicinity of the United States. The cruise industry has an ongoing obligation for the care, safety and welfare of their seafarers.

The Coast Guard is a lifesaving service, and since March 7th, when COVID-19 cases on cruise ships operating around the U.S. escalated, the service has enabled 31 life-saving medevacs.
