G’day mate: Jokowi lauds links between Netflix, Instagram generations in Australia, Indonesia

By on October 19, 2020

first_img“Our educational connection has already run deep with 16,000 young Indonesian leaders studying in Australia every year,” he said.Morrison also said he was delighted that Australia’s Monash University had been approved by the Indonesian government to operate in the country.“I’m delighted that the first university in the world to establish a branch campus in Indonesia will be Australia’s Monash University. Monash Indonesia will contribute powerfully to Indonesia’s economic, social and technological development,” the prime minister said.President Jokowi proposed a youth program dubbed “Ausindo Wave” that is focused on encouraging closer ties between Indonesia and Australia’s youth.“The anchor of our relationship three decades from now is the youth. We already have great assets, where 160,000 Australian students are learning Bahasa Indonesia and 21,000 Indonesians are currently studying in Australia,” the President said. (mpr) Indonesia is currently facing a demographic bonus, where 63 million of its citizens are between the age of 16 and 30 and it is projected to become the fourth-largest economy with a Gross Domestic Product of US$10.5 trillion, according to President Jokowi.“Most of [the youth] have a global outlook and are keen to innovate. Indonesia currently has a decacorn company and four unicorn start-ups that are driven by young people,” the President said.Read also: Avengers, assemble: Jokowi calls for Indonesia, Australia to unite against challengesAustralian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said that the relationship between the two countries in education was strong, as thousands of Indonesian young people are studying in the country. From Netflix to unicorn start-ups, President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo has called in a speech for greater unity among Australia and Indonesia’s younger generations, especially as the latter nation looks forward to a demographic bonus.President Jokowi opened his speech with a signature Australian greeting, saying “G’day, mate” before speaking about relations between the two countries and their young people at Parliament House in Canberra on Monday.“The younger generations of Indonesia and Australia have been brought up with similar values. They are brought up in a democratic society, and they’re familiar with Netflix, Instagram and Facebook while actively exchanging international perspectives,” he said.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Three doctors die after testing positive for COVID-19 in Jakarta

By on

first_imgPandu Riono, a public health expert at the University of Indonesia and relative of the 70-year-old surgeon, told the Post that the surgeon felt sick and showed symptoms of fever, cough and shortness of breath on Wednesday night. He was immediately sent to a local hospital and hooked up to a ventilator.“On Thursday, the doctor who treated him said he was a suspected COVID-19 patient and the Bogor Health Agency sent his throat swab sample to the Health Research and Development Agency [Balitbangkes],” Pandu told the Post.Read also: ‘If not us, who else will do it?’: Sweat and tears of Indonesia’s COVID-19 nurses, doctors“His doctor tried to transfer him to RSPAD and Sulianti Saroso Infectious Diseases Hospital but both hospitals were filled to capacity,” he said. “RSPAD took him in on Saturday morning but his condition had drastically deteriorated.”Pandu said he had yet to receive results from Balitbangkes. However, a doctor at Gatot Subroto Army Hospital told the family that the surgeon tested positive for COVID-19.On Friday, Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan revealed that at least 25 medical personnel in the city had tested positive for COVID-19 and that one of them had died from the disease.As of Sunday morning, Indonesia reported 450 confirmed COVID-19 cases nationwide, with 38 fatalities. (aly/kmt)Topics : “Yes, it’s true,” Indonesian Medical Association (IDI) chairman Daeng Muhammad Faqih told The Jakarta Post on Sunday, confirming the deaths of the three doctors.Persahabatan Hospital spokesperson Erlina Burhan also confirmed the reports.“It is true [that the ENT doctor and the surgeon died on Saturday]. The surgeon was not treated here but at RSPAD,” she told the Post.Erlina, however, did not confirm the case of the 34-year-old neurologist.

New York in ‘race against time’ as Trump stresses face masks are voluntary

By on

first_imgWith the federal government’s national strategic stockpile of such equipment nearly depleted, states have been forced essentially to compete against each other on the open market for vital resources.Cities across the country have also scrambled to expand hospital capacity and recruit healthcare professionals out of retirement to meet looming shortages of sick beds and personnel.New York City, the pandemic’s US epicenter, has mere days to prepare for the worst of the outbreak, said Mayor Bill de Blasio, whose city has suffered more than a quarter of the 7,000-plus coronavirus deaths to date nationwide.New York is in an “extraordinary race against time,” de Blasio told a news briefing on Friday, renewing his call for the federal government to mobilize the US military. Two of the principal US coronavirus hot spots – New York and Louisiana – reported their biggest jumps in COVID-19 deaths yet on Friday, as the White House sent mixed messages on whether Americans should cover their face if they venture outdoors.Surging deaths in New York City and New Orleans showed that a wave of lethal coronavirus infections expected to overwhelm hospitals, even in relatively affluent, urban areas with extensive healthcare systems, has begun to crash down on the United States.Governors, mayors and physicians have voiced alarm for weeks over crippling scarcities of personal protective gear for first-responders and front-line healthcare workers, as well as ventilators and other medical supplies. “We’re dealing with an enemy that is killing thousands of Americans, and a lot of people are dying who don’t need to die,” he said. “You can’t say, every state for themselves, every city for themselves. That is not America.”Americans, almost all of them under orders to stay home except for essential outings such as grocery shopping or seeing a doctor, have heard conflicting guidance in recent days about the need for wearing face masks in public.At the White House on Friday, President Donald Trump seemed to muddy the waters further when he announced that federal health authorities are now recommending individuals wear cloth face coverings to stem transmission of the virus. But he stressed the advisory was purely voluntary, and that he would not be heeding the recommendation himself.”With the masks, it’s going to be a really voluntary thing. You can do it, you don’t have to do it. I’m choosing not to do it,” he said.Doctors and nurses, many lacking adequate supplies of medical-grade face masks and other protective gear, were already confronting an onslaught from COVID-19, the respiratory illness caused by the highly contagious coronavirus.One physician at a New York City hospital recounted arriving at work on Friday to learn that three of his COVID-19 patients had died that morning. A few hours later, he had intubated two others.”I’ve never seen anything like this. I’ve never even heard of something like this in the developed world,” he told Reuters on condition of anonymity, because he was not authorized to speak with the media.Another hot spot, Louisiana, reported a sharp jump in deaths, climbing 20% to 370 on Friday, marking the highest day-to-day increase in fatal cases yet for the Gulf Coast state.Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards pleaded for residents to abide by his state-at-home order as the number of infections statewide surpassed 10,000.”For those of you who are not taking the crisis seriously, I am asking you to do a better job,” he told a news conference.Louisiana’s largest city, New Orleans, where Mardi Gras celebrations in late February are believed to have spread the virus before social distancing orders were imposed, has become a focal point of the crisis.The outbreak there has proven far more lethal than elsewhere in the United States, with a per-capita death rate twice that of New York City. Doctors, public health officials and available data suggest the Big Easy’s high levels of obesity and related ailments may be part of the problem.In New York, the US state hardest hit by the coronavirus in sheer numbers of infections and lives lost, the cumulative number of fatalities rose above 2,900 – on par with the death toll from the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States.”Personally, it’s hard to go through this all day, and then it’s hard to stay up all night watching those numbers come in,” Governor Andrew Cuomo said.New York City alone accounted for more than a quarter of the 7,077 US coronavirus deaths tallied by Johns Hopkins University on Friday. Known US infections, approaching 275,000 cases, made up about 25% of the more than 1 million cases reported worldwide.’Pain, Loneliness and Death’ Many of the most gravely ill patients were dying alone as medical staff forbade relatives to be with them in their final hours for fear of a further spread of infection.Dr. Craig Spencer, director of global health in emergency medicine at New York’s Columbia University Medical Center, described the scene inside tents set up outside hospitals to help contain an increasing influx of patients.”In those same tents, I saw too much pain, loneliness, and death. People dying alone,” he wrote on Twitter on Thursday night.In New Jersey, Governor Phil Murphy ordered all flags lowered to half-staff for as long as the emergency lasts, saying his state was the first to take such a measure.Fresh data on Friday highlighted the economic consequences of the public health crisis, confirming that hundreds of thousands of Americans had lost their jobs due to the pandemic. Economists said actual job losses will prove far greater but had yet to be reflected in employment figures as much of the economy had only begun to shut down last month.Topics :last_img read more

By on

first_imgTextile company PT GA Indonesia, a foreign direct investment enterprise owned by South Korean investors, has gotten the government’s nod to distribute hazmat suits to the regions as the country fights the COVID-19 outbreak.The company has also committed to delivering protective gear needed by the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB), according to the Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM).“We are thankful for the BKPM’s fast response when we submitted our distribution license application as our license was completed in an hour,” PT GA Indonesia president director Song Sung-wook said during BKPM’s visit to the company’s factory in Bogor, West Java, on Monday, as quoted in a statement circulated by the BKPM. Read also: At least 18 doctors have died in the fight against COVID-19“We are ready to increase our production as long as the raw materials are available,” he added.Health Minister Terawan Agus Putranto said in a meeting with the House of Representatives on Thursday that the shortage of protective gear and medical workers to administer tests and provide treatment for the disease were impeding the country’s efforts to contain the COVID-19 outbreak.As of Monday afternoon, at least 2,400 people were infected by the disease with more than 200 fatalities, official data showed. Dozens of doctors and nurses have also fallen victim as they fight on the front-lines, with hospitals expressing concerns over depleting protective gear.  BKPM head Bahlil Lahadalia said during the factory visit that producers needed to be protected from production disruptions as the world was scrambling for raw materials, especially from South Korea and China, to make protective gear.”We’ll take strict action against those who intentionally complicate things for protective gear producers. We should be grateful that the producers are already producing them since high-quality raw materials are currently rare,” said Bahlil, adding that he would prioritize domestic hospital needs in the gear distribution.Read also: Fashion shops, civil groups work hand-in-hand to cope with virus impact in YogyakartaGA Indonesia, along with five other South Korean garment producers in West Java grouped under the consortium of Indonesia-Korea Network Foundation (IKN) and Korean Association Bandung, strive to accelerate efforts to fulfill protective gear demand in Indonesia.As many as 500,000 hazmat suits have been sent by the consortium to the regions as of April 3, according to the BKPM. The governments of South Korea and Indonesia have agreed to work together to provide raw materials and distribution licenses for such materials in a swift manner.Going forward, the consortium plans to produce up to 100,000 pieces of protective gear per day.Topics :last_img read more

Oil falls as crude in US storage nears all-time high

By on

first_imgProducers may not be slashing output quickly or deeply enough to buoy prices, especially when global economic output is expected to contract by 2 percent this year, worse than the financial crisis.Rig counts in the United States are down to the lowest since July 2016, while the total number of oil and gas rigs in Canada has fallen to the lowest since at least 2000, according to Baker Hughes data.“The Permian Basin and New Mexico accounted for 62 percent of the shutdowns; an ominous sign considering this region has been one of the more prosperous in the US,” ANZ said.Kuwait and Azerbaijan are coordinating cuts, while Russia is set to reduce its western seaborne exports by half in May.The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies including Russia, a group known as OPEC+, pledged earlier this month to cut output by an unprecedented 9.7 million barrels per day in May and June.Topics : Oil prices fell on Monday on signs that worldwide oil storage is filling rapidly, raising concerns that production cuts will not be fast enough to catch up with the collapse in demand from the coronavirus pandemic.United States oil futures led losses after US crude inventories rose to 518.6 million barrels in the week to April 17, near an all-time record of 535 million barrels set in 2017, while floating crude oil storage has hit an all-time high of 160 million barrels.US West Texas Intermediate futures fell US$1.22, or 7.2 percent, to $15.72 a barrel by 0122 GMT, while Brent crude was down 33 cents, or 1.5 percent, at $21.11 a barrel. Oil futures marked their third straight week of losses last week – and have fallen for eight of the past nine – with Brent ending down 24 percent and WTI off around 7 percent.“Rising inventories and weak demand are weighing heavily on sentiment,” ANZ analysts said.Trading was extremely volatile last week, in an extension of the selling that has dominated trading since early March as demand collapsed 30 percent due to the pandemic.Traders expect demand to fall short of supply for months due to the economic disruption caused by the pandemic. Investors will be watching this week for results from oil majors including Exxon Mobil, BP Plc and Royal Dutch Shell.last_img read more
