We have also trained over 200 people in contact  tracing.”He further explained that, in support of the fight against the deadly communicable disease in the county, they provided essential drugs, medical and sanitary supplies, including personal protective equipment to health facilities.“We have also identified land for the Ebola treatment unit, andthe clearing is ongoing by the Sime Darby Company.  Wehope that we can complete that soon and continue to be robust in the fight against this terrible disease.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Champions League Group D ‘in our hands’, insists Arsenal boss Wenger

first_img Champions League Group D ‘in our hands’, insists Arsenal boss Wenger 1 Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger praised his side’s fighting spirit after the Gunners scored twice in the final two minutes to secure a last-gasp Champions League victory at Anderlecht.The Belgian outfit were the better side throughout the 90 minutes, and deservedly went in front midway through the second-half.But a late burst of pressure saw the hosts crumble at the back, with Kieran Gibbs and substitute Lukas Podolski netting in the 89th and 90th minutes to rescue a precious 2-1 victory on Wenger’s 65th birthday.And with the win taking their points tally up to six, just three behind Group D leaders Borussia Dortmund, Wenger believes his side are in a commanding position to qualify for the knock-out stages.“We kept going and managed to score two good goals because we had the spirit and refused to lose the game,” Wenger told Sky Sports 1.“Anderlecht played well tonight and you see that this country produces top-class players.“It was vital for us to have a chance to qualify. We are in a strong position now – it’s in our hands.“Galatasaray and Anderlecht have only one point, we have six and Borussia Dortmund nine, so it’s down to us now to win our home games and we are through.“Dortmund can be a tough opponent. We now play Anderlecht at home.“Let’s just qualify and then we will see how far we can go.”last_img read more

Buncrana band’s debut EP climbs the charts

first_imgBuncrana band Don’t Fear The Natives are soaring through the iTunes Charts after launching their debut EP ‘Stupid Heart’ last weekend.The album reached No. 20 in Ireland on the day of its release and has been receiving positive reviews from top titles including Hot Press. The Inishowen six-piece band includes Claire McDaid on vocals, Denis Kelly on guitar/vocals, Greg McDaid on guitar, Jennifer Tedstone on keyboard, Cathal McDaid on bass, and Denis Doherty on drums. The band has been playing music on and off for a number of years. Denis Kelly and Claire McDaid started an electro-rock duo Palomino, but eventually realised that the sound they were aiming for required more members. They recruited more talented local artists and adopted the name ‘Don’t Fear the Natives’.Denis Kelly and Claire McDaid of Don’t Fear The NativesStupid Heart is a clear sign they’re doing something right. Fans have been streaming and downloading it non-stop in recent days on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Google Play, 7Digital, Amazon and Deezer.IMRO have praised the record, saying: “Stupid Heart has been described as an anthem for broken hearts, with Claire’s soaring vocals wrapped in a maelstrom of spiralling guitars. “The new E.P. finds ‘Don’t Fear The Natives’ exploring the vulnerabilities of relationships, the heartaches, and sometimes those small victories in between.” The band has released the video for lead track Stupid Hearts today, which was conceived, edited and filmed in and around Buncrana, with an entire cast and crew of friends and locals.“Most of the tracks were recorded at our home studio in Buncrana. So the whole project from beginning to end, is locally produced,” said band member Denis Kelly.

Their returns will hand Bielsa a huge boost heading into the second half of the season, and Leeds will not have to utilise the transfer market to replace the pair.The Elland Road club currently sit top of the Championship, ahead of Norwich on goal difference. Both sides have won 30 points from 16 matches, but only five points separate the leaders from Blackburn Rovers down in eighth.last_img read more

O’Meara suffers defeat in title clash

first_imgSteve O’Meara was beaten in his attempt to become Commonwealth light-middleweight champion.He lost on points to undefeated Liverpudlian Liam Smith, who landed the more telling blows as the pair battled for the vacant title at ExCel London.O’Meara was floored at the end of the opening round after what appeared to be a clash of heads but was given as a knockdown.By the third round, O’Meara’s face was bloodied and he was tagged with a couple of stiff rights.And in the fourth, he seemed to be hurt after a right to the body.The West Londoner had his moments though and enjoyed a good sixth round in which a right followed by a left appeared to wobble his opponent slightly.O’Meara showed his slick boxing skills and plenty of heart – and looked to be having real success in the eighth before some worrying moments after he was caught by two thumping rights.The ninth was another bad round for O’Meara, who was caught with several head shots and was on unsteady legs after a left hook to the temple, which was followed by a big rightTo his credit, O’Meara dug deep and did well in the 11th, landing with a couple of hefty shots – including a lovely right uppercut.Both men went for broke in a scintillating final round in which they stood toe-to-toe and landed with several big shots.But O’Meara went for it like a man who knew he needed a knockout to take the title – and Smith’s superiority was reflected in the final scorecards.One judge scored it 118-110, which seemed harsh on O’Meara, while the other two had it 116-112 in Smith’s favour.See also: O’Meara v Smith as it happenedSee also:Dominant Groves easily sees off JohnsonGroves tipped to win world title in 2013George Groves v Glen Johnson post-fight press conferenceHaye hails Groves after ‘amazing display’ against JohnsonTrio in action on Groves’ Wembley bill Groves v Johnson in 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
