first_imgThe MLB spoke out against Turner’s decision one day later. “Following the Dodgers’ victory, it is clear that Turner chose to disregard the agreed-upon joint protocols and the instructions he was given regarding the safety and protection of others,” a spokesperson for the league said in a statement to Us. “While a desire to celebrate is understandable, Turner’s decision to leave isolation and enter the field was wrong and put everyone he came in contact with at risk. When MLB security raised the matter of being on the field with Turner, he emphatically refused to comply.”Given the constantly evolving nature of COVID-19, Us Weekly wants our readers to have access to the most accurate resources.

Los Angeles Dodgers player Justin Turner apologized after exposing his teammates to coronavirus following the team’s World Series victory.Turner, 35, said in a statement on Friday, November 6, that he was “blindsided” to discover that he tested positive for COVID-19 during the final game of the championship on October 27. He and wife Kourtney Pogue were quarantined together “in a doctor’s office in the back of the clubhouse” as the game continued.- Advertisement – The athlete has since offered personal apologies to his colleagues. “In hindsight, I should have waited until the field was clear of others to take that photo with my wife,” he continued. “I sincerely apologize to everyone on the field for failing to appreciate the risks of returning to the field.

After waiting in the isolation room while my teammates celebrated on the field, I asked whether I was permitted to return to the field with my wife in order to take a photograph. I assumed by that point that few people were left on the field. I was under the impression that team officials did not object to my returning to the field for a picture with my wife.”Turner claimed that what he intended to be a quick photo op “turned into several greetings and photos where I briefly and unwisely removed my mask.”- Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more

first_imgMay 20, 2009Rare smallpox vaccine complication prompted extraordinary measuresThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) yesterday reported a case of progressive vaccinia, a complication of smallpox vaccination that had not been confirmed in the United States since 1987. The case occurred in a 20-year-old Navy sailor who received smallpox vaccine on Jan 13 and 2 weeks later was found to have acute myelogenous leukemia M0. During workup of a chemotherapy-induced fever, his doctors noted that his vaccination site had become larger. Within 24 hours of his progressive vaccinia diagnosis the patient received vaccinia immune globulin intravenous (VIGIV). A few days later he received oral and topical treatment with the investigational antiviral drug ST-246. Despite treatment, the patient became septic and had multiorgan failure. Because of long and intensive vasopressor support, the patient had dry gangrene of his feet and required bilateral amputation. His wound began to heal after another round of VIGIV and ST-246 and treatment with another investigational antiviral drug, CMX001, a lipid conjugate of cidofovir. A total of 276 vials of VIGIV were used during his treatment, an amount previously thought adequate to treat 30 people. The CDC said the case underscores the need to recognize the condition early, especially in immunocompromised patients, to involve a multidisciplinary medical team, and to consider such events when setting drug stockpiling goals.[May 19 MMWR report]Two more Egyptian children infected with H5N1 Egypt’s health ministry today announced two more H5N1 avian influenza infections in children, Reuters reported. One of the patients is a 4-year-old boy from Dakahliya governorate in northern Egypt who is hospitalized in stable condition and is being treated with oseltamivir (Tamiflu). The other patient is a 3-year-old boy from Sohag governorate in southern Egypt, according Strengthening Avian Influenza Detection and Response (SAIDR) reported. He got sick on May 17, was hospitalized the next day, and is in stable condition. Both boys were said to have contact with sick poultry. If the World Health Organization (WHO) confirms the two infections, Egypt’s H5N1 count will rise to 74 cases, of which 26 were fatal. The death toll does not yet include a 4-year-old girl who died from an H5N1 infection on May 18.[May 20 Reuters story]Study questions inactivated flu vaccine efficacy in childrenInactivated influenza vaccine doesn’t appear to prevent flu-related hospitalizations in children, particularly those who have asthma, according to Mayo Clinic researchers who reported their findings yesterday at the American Thoracic Society’s (ATS) annual meeting in San Diego. The cohort study, designed to test the efficacy of the vaccine, included 263 children from 6 months to 18 years old who had laboratory-confirmed flu between 1996 and 2006. Children who had received the vaccine had three times the risk of hospitalization compared with those who weren’t vaccinated. Even higher hospitalization rates were seen in children with asthma. Avni Joshi, MD, one of the researchers, said in an ATS press release that though the study raises questions about the vaccine’s efficacy, it does not implicate it as the cause of the higher hospitalization rate. She said more studies are needed to assess the vaccine’s immunogenicity and efficacy of different vaccines in patients who have asthma.last_img read more

first_imgTheo Walcott has revealed how a half-time blast from manager Arsene Wenger gave Arsenal a “kick up the backside” to get their push for Champions League qualification on course again as they went on to beat Wigan 4-1 at the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners had little room for error against the FA Cup winners on Tuesday night, who themselves needed to win to keep alive hopes of beating the drop. Everything was going Arsenal’s way after an early goal from Lukas Podolski before a superb 25-yard free-kick from Shaun Maloney just before the interval threatened an upset. Arsenal put the result beyond doubt with three goals in the space of eight minutes just after the hour. Walcott, who swept home a crucial second before Podolski bagged his second and Aaron Ramsey scored the fourth, said: “The manager gave us a kick up the backside. It is great that the manager has that passion and it got a bit more out of the players.” Press Associationcenter_img He added: “It is massive to be in the Champions League. We all knew our big it is, not just for the manager, the fans, the players and the club itself.” Walcott maintains the thought of being the first Arsenal side in a generation to miss out on Champions League football has driven the squad back into the top four of the Barclays Premier League. Arsenal now head to Newcastle on Sunday with destiny back in their own hands, a point ahead of Tottenham following a superb nine-match unbeaten run since losing at White Hart Lane on March 3, and could yet finish above Chelsea should the Europa League finalists slip up against Everton. Walcott, who took his tally to 21 on Tuesday, has every confidence Wenger’s men can now finish the job at St James’ Park and deliver a 16th successive shot at Europe’s elite club competition. “We just have great experience in knowing what to do when the time is right. It is funny. It happens every year,” said Walcott. “We tend to finish very strong. I think it is just because the players want it so much. “It (Champions League football) is big for the future of the club and the players. We have been in it for the last 15 years and we don’t want to be the players who are not part of that. “We just need to show that in the mid-season and at the start and we could hopefully be even higher than we are and not have this situation we are in. But it is very positive, and we will be fighting strong on Sunday.” last_img read more

first_imgUW point guard Alyssa Karel scored a game-high 24 points Sunday, but several missed free throws ultimately doomed the Badgers.[/media-credit]Wisconsin’s 62-59 loss to Illinois State Sunday mirrored many of the Badgers’ games this season – a hard-fought battle with several missed opportunities for UW to take control.As senior guard Alyssa Karel’s three-point attempt came up short with three seconds remaining, the Wisconsin women’s basketball season (16-15) came to a close with yet another heartbreaking loss in the second round of the WNIT Tournament. In a game with nine lead changes, the Badgers were simply unable to finish strong.Missed free throws, often just as Wisconsin was building momentum, seemed to hurt the Badgers more than anything else. UW was just 11-of-19 from the foul line, and Morgan Paige’s missed free throw to tie the game with seven seconds left showed the importance of free throw shooting in this matchup.“We put them at the line too early in the second half, and when we went there we didn’t capitalize,” head coach Lisa Stone said. “And it was all of us, it wasn’t anybody in particular. I told Morgan Paige, because she was really upset, the game doesn’t come down to her free throw.”With a one-point advantage at halftime in a back-and-forth first half, Illinois State was able to quickly answer any consistent scoring from the Badgers. UW never led by more than six and found itself chasing a Redbirds (22-10) lead for much of the contest.Despite playing from behind for much of the game, Wisconsin showed resiliency, down by seven with just more than two minutes left. With two steals in the final two minutes, it appeared that the Badgers might be able to pull off an impressive comeback. But Wisconsin came up just short.“I think Alyssa put it best … that we just haven’t caught a break,” Stone said. “We’re a shot away against Michigan State, we’re a shot away against Michigan from a conference championship and a No. 2 seed [in the Big Ten Tournament] and then we’re a No. 6 seed.”A senior may have missed a potential buzzer-beater, but without the play of Karel and senior forward Lin Zastrow, Wisconsin likely would not have made the late surge. Leading all scorers with 24 points, Karel had 10 in the final three minutes that kept the Redbirds from pulling away late.Zastrow finished with 18 points and six rebounds and allowed UW to jump out to a lead early in the second half by scoring the Badgers’ first six points after the break.“In the first half, they were doubling me a little bit, so that threw me off, I think,” Zastrow said. “In the second half … I knew I had to take it at them and just come out a little bit more aggressive.”Wisconsin jumped out to an 8-2 lead early, but the Badgers could not stop Illinois State from coming back. Receiving several crucial second-chance opportunities off offensive rebounds, the Badgers simply gave Illinois State too many chances to take back the lead. An undersized team, the Redbirds were still able to collect three more rebounds than Wisconsin, a key to their victory.With both teams shooting near 40 percent from the field and close to 30 percent from three-point range, the game ultimately came down to free-throws and timely scoring.“I’m glad there was no more time left; I’m glad the clock ran out when it did because we were definitely starting to get a little tight,” Illinois State head coach Stephanie Glance said. “We are kind of inexperienced in that situation, so for us to actually be able to hang on and to pull out the win, that’s big for us.”This game marked the end of Wisconsin’s run in the WNIT Tournament and marked the end of the careers of Wisconsin’s four seniors in Karel, Zastrow, Tara Steinbauer and Emily Neal. Seniors were the foundation of this Badgers’ squad throughout the season, and this game brought an emotional end to their careers.“It’s been such a great experience here, and I’ve been so thankful for the experience that Coach and this university [have] given me,” Karel said. “I think once the tears stop, I’ll just kind of look back and all I can do is really smile.”As Wisconsin starts to look forward to next season, both coaches and teammates realize that the seniors will be nearly impossible to replace. “These are two of the finest players that will ever wear a Wisconsin uniform, there’s no doubt about it,” Stone said of Karel and Zastrow. “Impact, unbelievable impact, leadership, character people, going to go on to be very, very successful.”last_img read more
