Makassar gets PSBB go-ahead, plans to isolate COVID-19 hot zones

first_imgWith the green light from the central government Makassar will soon be joining at least 10 other regions that have imposed partial lockdowns under the PSBB to slow the spread of COVID-19 in Indonesia. The regions include the nation’s capital, Jakarta, the epicenter of the Indonesian outbreak, as well as its satellite cities of Bogor, Bekasi, Depok and Tangerang, as well as Pekanbaru in Riau.On Thursday, the country reported 5,516 confirmed cases and 496 deaths.Iqbal Suhaeb of the Makassar administration confirmed that the South Sulawesi capital was drafting the PSBB regulation in coordination with the Makassar city council. “We will disseminate the regulation [to the public] first before [the PSBB] is enforced,” said Iqbal, adding that he expected the the regulation to be ready to issue by next week.The Makassar administration has prepared 35,000 packages of staple goods for distributing to the poor. It has also readied 35,000 masks for people who needed them, as the PSBB requires all residents to wear masks when they venture outdoors.The administration also plans to build public kitchens in quarantined areas so that food is readily available.Makassar had set aside some Rp 300 billion (US$19.1 million) for its COVID-19 response, Iqbal said. South Sulawesi is one of the “red zones” of the Indonesian outbreak, recording 271 confirmed cases and 23 deaths by Thursday afternoon.Meanwhile, its neighboring provinces of West Sulawesi and South Sulawesi had respectively recorded seven and 26 confirmed cases.

News of Lamar Odom’s hospitalization hits Lakers

first_imgScott did not address Odom’s situation because he “didn’t think it was an appropriate time to do it before the game.” But Lakers forward Nick Young said that longtime Lakers trainer Gary Vitti addressed the team about Odom, who played for the Lakers from 2004 to 2011 and had a key role on their 2009 and 2010 NBA championship teams. Odom also won the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year honor in the 2010-11 season. At the time, Odom credited his marriage to reality television star Khloe Kardashain for his success. But Kardashian filed for divorce in 2013, citing irreconcilable differences. The divorce has not yet received final approval from a judge.“(Vitti) told us pretty much everything that’s been going on and how Lamar was, and how he thought the Lakers were his family,” Young said. “He told us a story about how many people he lost in his life and friends. It’s sad. I don’t know how anybody can deal with that.”Odom’s mother, Cathy Mercer, died of colon cancer when Odom was 12 years old. In 2004, Odom lost his grandmother, Mildred Mercer. Odom’s son Jayden died at six months old in 2006 of sudden infant death syndrome. In the summer of 2011, Odom dealt with grief from a close cousin dying and being a passenger in a car when the driver accidently struck and killed a 15-year-old pedestrian.Odom’s inviting personality made him one of the most popular players in the Lakers locker room. But his tenure there ended on a sour note. He expressed resentment that the Lakers traded him to the New Orleans Hornets in December 2011, a move that would have landed them Chris Paul, but which the NBA rejected. The Lakers then accommodated Odom’s trade request to Dallas, but the Mavericks eventually bought out his contract amid a sluggish season. He played with the Clippers in the 2012-13 season, but has not been in the NBA since.“Lamar was cool and always down to earth and talked to me,” said Young, who lived in the same downtown apartment complex as Odom during the 2012-13 season. “It’s tough when you lose so many people. I’ve been in situations where I lost my brother. But I can’t begin to understand him losing a brother, losing a daughter, losing a mom.”Odom has recently experienced other tumultuous episodes. Reports emerged in the summer of 2013 that he became addicted to crack cocaine after police arrested him on suspicion of driving under the influence. He was later charged and pleaded no contest. In 2014, Odom played for the Spanish team Laboral Kutxa, as well as with the New York Knicks Summer League team. Neither stint lasted long. Odom’s situation Tuesday night left the Lakers both somber and eager to find out about his condition.“It’s tough,” Young said. “I saw it on Kobe and Metta’s face. They’ve been through wars with him and know him well.” The Associated Press contributed to this report Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error • THE LATEST: Lamar Odom remains hospitalized in NevadaLakers guard Kobe Bryant did not offer any words regarding Odom, whom the Nye County Sheriff’s Office said was transported by ambulance around 3:15 p.m. Tuesday from the Love Ranch in Crystal, Nev., to Desert View Hospital in Pahrump. Bryant left the MGM Grand Garden Arena after Tuesday night’s game for what the Lakers called “personal reasons.” Bryant and Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak visited Odom, Los Angeles News Group learned. The Lakers did not comment publicly on the situation.Before and after the game, various team employees tried to get more information on Odom’s whereabouts. Odom was eventually transported to Sunrise Hospital, which is a few miles away from where the Lakers played Tuesday night. Nye County Sheriff spokeswoman Sharon Wehrly said in a statement that the 6-foot-10-inch Odom was too tall to be airlifted in a helicopter. So instead, he was driven by ambulance to Sunrise Hospital. His immediate condition was not clear. “Our heart and thoughts and prayers are with Lamar and his family and I wish him all the best,” Lakers coach Byron Scott said. “That’s obviously something you don’t want to hear before the game.”center_img LAS VEGAS >> The news caused Metta World Peace’s eyes to swell as the seconds passed. The Lakers veteran forward struggled to process the news that made the team’s 107-100 preseason loss to the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday an afterthought.• PHOTOS: Lamar Odom on the court and the red carpetFormer Laker, Clipper and reality television star Lamar Odom was hospitalized after he was found unresponsive in a brothel outside of Las Vegas. “There’s nothing I can say. I don’t even know what to say,” said World Peace, who grew up with Odom in the New York City area and was a Lakers teammate from 2009 to 2011. “There’s not one word I can say right now that would make sense.”last_img read more
