By AFP June 26, 2020 Venezuela’s low case count and death toll from the coronavirus are likely false and could in fact be thousands of times higher than official figures, according to the Human Rights Watch (HRW) and Johns Hopkins University.Nicolás Maduro’s regime has reported 10 COVID-19 deaths out of 1,121 cases in a country of 30 million people, numbers a report from the HRW and Johns Hopkins calls “absurd.”“We believe the data — the statistics that the Venezuelan government give, Maduro’s statistics — are absolutely absurd and are not credible,” HRW director for the Americas Jose Miguel Vivanco said during a videoconference May 26 while presenting the report.The true number could be closer to “at least 30,000” coronavirus deaths, according to Johns Hopkins associate medicine professor Kathleen Page, who interviewed several Venezuelan doctors and nurses for the report.Vivanco said the idea of so few cases and deaths “in a country where doctors don’t have water to even wash their hands” and “the health system is totally collapsing” strains credibility.Page said the Venezuelan government reports having completed more than 300,000 coronavirus tests, but that the tests they use are known for returning a high percentage of false negatives.She instead estimates that 1 percent of the population — or about 300,000 people — might be infected.Given available information about the novel coronavirus death rate in other countries, it is possible to conservatively estimate that 30,000 of those infected in Venezuela have died, Page said, especially since the health infrastructure there is so fragile.“One of the surgeons told me they have to wash their hands from water that falls from the air conditioning,” she said.Venezuela, once a wealthy oil-rich country, has been devastated by an economic and political crisis that has seen many flee the country and left those that remain often without basic necessities.Vivanco slammed the government as a “repressive dictatorship” that doesn’t allow journalists and medical personnel to report the facts on the ground and instead “hides data.”HRW director for the United Nations Louis Charbonneau called on the international community to hold Venezuela accountable.“We urge U.N. [Secretary General] Antonio Guterres and the U.N. Emergency Relief Coordinator Mark Lowcock to lead efforts to address this extremely worrying humanitarian situation in Venezuela,” he said.

Ghana U20 and Amidaus Professionals goalkeeper Eric Ofori Antwi was named Man-of-the-Match in Tuesday’s African Youth Championship semi-final win over Mali in Oran.The Amidaus ace stopped two kicks during the penalty shoot-outs and made some fine saves during open play.CAF’s Technical Study Group member in-charge of the match Adel Moneim Hussein had no doubts about the quality of the Black Satellites gloves man.Antwi becomes the third Ghanaian player to win the Orange Man-of-the-Match at the tournament.Striker Ebenezer Assifuah won it twice during the Group stage and Francis Narh also got the plaque in Ghana’s second match against Benin.
Coupled with the Canadiens’ 2-1 loss to the Capitals, the Hurricanes clinched a postseason berth exactly 10 years to the day after their last one.Faulk, who just a teenager when the Canes selected him in the second round (37th overall) of the 2010 NHL Draft, admitted last month that the prolonged drought was a source of frustration.”It’s definitely been tough. It’s actually easier earlier in your career. You’re naïve, and you’re just playing the game,” Faulk said to ESPN’s Greg Wyshynski of the Canes’ extended playoff-less stretch. “You don’t necessarily understand what’s going on around you, and you’re just trying to get your feet wet and make a name for yourself.”As it goes on, you’re thinking about it more and more, right? You want success. It’s not fun being on a team that’s not winning. I could tell you that personally. Doing worlds [the IIHF World Championship, where Faulk has played three times for Team USA] isn’t a replacement. It doesn’t make it better.”WE ARE IN! #TakeWarning pic.twitter.com/nhAQ1VsUOh— x – Carolina Hurricanes (@NHLCanes) April 5, 2019As recently as late December, the idea of Carolina being in the postseason was almost laughable. On Dec. 30, the team was 15-17-5 and just one game out of last place in the Eastern Conference. It might have been difficult to imagine how an eventual playoff berth would feel.”I don’t think about my feelings too much,” Faulk quipped to reporters after Thursday’s win.Carolina went 30-12-2 over its next 44 games to take control of the first wild card in the East. During that stretch, the team became famous for its “Storm Surge” postgame victory celebrations, being labeled a “bunch of jerks” by commentator Don Cherry and, ultimately, bringing playoff hockey back to Carolina. After a decade without playoff hockey in Carolina, Justin Faulk and the Hurricanes had had enough.Faulk, whose 558 regular-season games entering Thursday were third-most among active players without a postseason appearance, netted the go-ahead goal in his team’s 3-1 victory over the Devils. Just 96 seconds into the second period, Faulk unleased eight seasons’ worth of frustration with a rocket of a slap shot past New Jersey netminder Cory Schneider that gave the Hurricanes a 2-1 lead. MORE: ‘Storm Surge’ passes: Ranking the best Hurricanes celebrations from 2018-19“We’re not done,” Faulk, the team’s alternate captain, said. “It’s not enough just to get into the playoffs. We have more stuff to take care of.”For now, the longtime Hurricane can revel in the fact that he has clinched a postseason berth ahead of the players with more career games played — Zach Bogosian (617) and a former Faulk teammate who was rumored to want out of Carolina, Jeff Skinner (660).
Pittsburgh Pirates’ Andrew McCutchen singles off New York Yankees pitcher Ivan Nova during the first inning of an exhibition spring training baseball game at McKechnie Field in Bradenton, Fla., Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2014. (AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar)BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) – Jacoby Ellsbury reached base in all three plate appearances of his New York Yankees’ spring training debut, scoring twice Wednesday in 6-5 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates.Ellsbury, who left World Series champion Boston for a $153 million, seven-year contract with New York, walked twice and had an infield single in the exhibition opener. He was on base in the second inning when Yangervis Solarte hit a two-run homer off Edinson Volquez.Pittsburgh trailed 4-0 but scored twice in the second and four times in the seventh, when Tony Sanchez hit a tying three-run homer against Chase Whitley. Chris McGuiness had a go-ahead single that drove in former-Yankee Chris Dickerson.Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Edinson Volquez throws in the second inning of an exhibition spring training baseball game against the New York Yankees in Bradenton, Fla., Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2014.

Puskar)STARTING TIMEYankees: Ivan Nova allowed two runs, two hits and two walks in 1 1-3 innings, facing eight batters and throwing 35 pitches.“I did maybe more than I was expecting in the first game,” Nova said. “My arm feels really good and the ball was came out of my hand well. It was a really good day today.”Pirates: Nelson Liriano gave up two runs, three hits and a walk in his one scheduled inning. He allowed four of his first five batters to reach.“I was just working on my sinker and fastball,” he said. “I’ll throw my breaking stuff later this spring. I use my slider a lot, but first I need to get my release point with my fastball. Physically, I feel 100 percent.”Liriano, the Pirates’ scheduled opening-day starter, was 16-8 with a 3.02 ERA last year and was selected NL Comeback Player of the Year.TRAINER’S ROOMThe Yankees scratched shortstop Eduardo Nunez from their lineup due to a stomach virus. He was replaced by Solarte, who is in camp as a non-roster invitee. Addison Maruszak was brought up from minor league camp to back up Solarte. … Right-hander Matt Daley originally was slated to pitch in relief Wednesday, but is out with a sore calf. … Outfielder Alfonso Soriano also has flu and is not expected to play until Sunday against the Toronto Blue Jays.First baseman/outfielder Travis Ishikawa played the first half-inning of the Pirates’ intrasquad scrimmage Tuesday, then left due to tightness in his right leg. He is expected to be out another day or two.GETTING TO KNOW YOUThree of the top free agents the Yankees signed this past offseason – Carlos Beltran, Brian McCann and Ellsbury – made the trip to Bradenton. McCann got a hit in his first at-bat, a single to left-center that scored Ellsbury from second base.McCann caught the first four innings.“He’s great,” Nova said. “He gave me a real nice, low target and that’s important. I told him I had confidence in what he wanted to do. Give me the sign for what you think is the right (pitch) and I’ll go.”THE BIG WHIFFPedro Alvarez led the NL with 186 strikeouts last season, and the Pirates hope he can cut down this year.“To think that he’s ever going to be under 100 is unrealistic,” manager Clint Hurdle said. “But I do think the strikeout number can be shrunk to some degree.”Alvarez struck out twice in three at-bats against the Yankees. He went down swinging in the first inning and took a called strike three in the second, stranding five runners.THE NEW GUYVolquez admitted he was nervous when he took the mound.“I was a little bit too excited,” he said. “Part of it was the first game of spring training. But I’m also with a new team and I want to make a good impression. I want to let them know they made a good decision by signing me.”Pittsburgh gave Volquez a $5 million, one-year deal, and he is competing with left-hander Jeff Locke for the No. 5 spot in the rotation.
