Russia offers Indonesia access to Sputnik V vaccine for COVID-19

first_imgThe Sputnik V is a vaccine developed by the Gamaleya research institute in coordination with the Russian defense ministry. It is based on a proven vaccine against adenovirus – the common cold.The vaccine is expected to provide immunity from SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, for up to two years, according to the Russian health ministry. More than 44,000 people have taken part in the Sputnik V clinical trial.The platform used for the vaccine was developed by Russian scientists over 20 years and had formed the basis for several vaccines in the past, including those against Ebola. Gamaleya’s vaccine is based on similar technology to the coronavirus vaccine prototype developed by CanSino, a Chinese vaccine-making company.Earlier, Vorobieva said once the Phase III clinical trial was completed that the first step would be to make the vaccine available in the Indonesian market. The Russian government also expects that clinical trials for the vaccine can start in Indonesia, which would allow for its registration with the health authority in the country. So far, 44,000 people have taken part in clinical trials for the vaccine worldwide, including President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines, who was inoculated in May this year.Russia has made a sales pitch to countries around the world, and claims that countries with over 50 percent of the world population have expressed interest in Sputnik V.Russia expects that by the end of 2021 it will have supplied over 1 billion doses of the Sputnik V vaccine.The Russian government also expects to allow Indonesia to join the manufacturing process of the vaccine. “We are ready to manufacture at least some of the components of the vaccine in Indonesia,” Vorobieva said in August.In April, President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo held a telephone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin discussing efforts to step up cooperation in dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.Both Jokowi and Putin have agreed to step up contacts between the health ministries of the two countries.President Putin was scheduled to visit Indonesia in 2020 but the plan was called off following the outbreak of COVID-19.Speaking on Thursday, Health Minister Terawan Agus Putranto said COVID-19 vaccines developed in Britain and China would be sufficient to inoculate at least 70 percent of the Indonesian population. Terawan was referring to vaccines developed by China’s Sinovac and Sinopharm and Britain’s AstraZeneca.”While waiting for the development of the Red and White vaccine, which will be ready in 2022, we will benefit from our partnerships with China and Britain,” Terawan said as quoted by tempo.co. The Russian government has officially made an offer to the Indonesian government for the use and further development of a coronavirus vaccine, Sputnik V, which is currently in its Phase III clinical trial.Russian Ambassador to Indonesia Lyudmila Vorobieva said her government had contacted the Health Ministry about the possible distribution and use of the Sputnik V vaccine and was currently waiting for its response.”We sent a letter to the ministry on Sept. 17. We’re still waiting for a response,” Vorobieva said in an interview with The Jakarta Post on Thursday.center_img Editor’s note: This article is part of a public campaign by the COVID-19 task force to raise people’s awareness about the pandemic.Topics :last_img read more

Indian Premier League Ashton Turner matches Gautam Gambhir’s horrendous record in IPL after hat-trick of ducks

first_imghighlights Turner’s miraculous knock played a massive role in Australia’s resurgence as they won the five-match ODI series 2-3 and became the first Australian side to win a series from being 0-2 down in India. Prior to his knock in Mohali, Turner was snapped up by Rajasthan Royals for his base price of Rs 50 lakh during the auction in December 2018 and many expected him to perform great feats.In the ongoing 2019 Indian Premier League, Turner’s journey has been a nightmare. In his debut game against Kings XI Punjab at the same venue where he had scored his miraculous 84, Turner mistimed a lofted shot off Ravichandran Ashwin to be caught at long off for a golden duck. In his next game against Mumbai Indians at the Sawai Mansingh stadium in Jaipur on Saturday, Turner was cleaned up by Jasprit Bumrah for yet another golden duck but unlike Mohali, Rajasthan Royals won the match by a close margin.However, Turner’s woeful form in Twenty20s is actually longer. The dismissal against Mumbai Indians was actually his fourth consecutive duck in the format. Prior to the two matches in IPL 2019, Turner was dismissed for a golden duck in the final game against Adelaide Strikers for Perth Scorchers. In the first Twenty20 International against India in Vizag, Turner was dismissed for a three-ball duck by Hardik Pandya.With his fifth consecutive duck, Ashton Turner might well be called Ashton Duckner for his ongoing woeful form. For all the Latest Sports News News, Indian Premier League News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: It is now official! Ashton Turner, the Australian batsman who had scripted the miracle at Mohali, is in the midst of a terrible slump. After being dismissed for a duck in his first two games, Turner came when Rajasthan Royals were in a great position with Ajinkya Rahane having hit a century. However, the nightmare continued for Turner as he chipped a full, slow ball from Ishant Sharma to Sherfane Rutherford at extra cover to fall for a golden duck. Turner became the first player in Twenty20 history to be dismissed for five consecutive ducks and in the IPL, he joined an infamous list of players who were dismissed for a hat-trick of ducks.Turner became the first overseas player and the sixth player overall to be dismissed for three consecutive ducks in one season of the IPL. Gautam Gambhir, the former Kolkata Knight Riders skipper who will now campaign for the BJP in the upcoming Lok Sabha 2019 Elections, was dismissed for three ducks in the 2014 edition. Apart from Gambhir, Pawan Negi and Shardul Thakur are the others to have suffered this fate. Apart from the three, Rahul Sharma and Ashok Dinda have been dismissed for three consecutive ducks in two editions of the IPL. Ashton Turner was dismissed for his fifth consecutive duck in Twenty20s.Turner’s duck in IPL 2019 was his third consecutive.Turner was purchased for Rs 50 lakh during the IPL Auction.last_img read more

MOUNTAIN HIGH: SU upsets West Virginia for marquee road victory

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 22, 2010 at 12:00 pm Commentscenter_img MORGANTOWN, W. Va. — Chandler Jones glanced up at the scoreboard. Eight years of waiting, and Syracuse was on the cusp of something big. Through the first 59 minutes, the Orange had played arguably its most impressive game of the season to this point. But with just a minute remaining, No. 20 West Virginia was driving. ‘I looked back at the clock and there was one minute and three seconds left, and I was like, ‘This is it, the game is on our shoulders,” Jones said. Hanging onto a narrow five-point lead, SU wouldn’t budge. Twenty yards from the end zone, the Orange rejected three consecutive attempts to gain any positive yardage by the explosive WVU offense. And on fourth-and-22, with just 49 seconds remaining, Jones, Anthony Perkins and a blitzing Shamarko Thomas reached West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith for SU’s fifth sack of the game. Just like that, in front of 58,122 at Milan Puskar Stadium, eight years of Mountaineer domination came to an end. Led by a stout defense that allowed just 99 yards of total offense and zero points in the second half, the Orange (5-2, 2-1 Big East) crashed West Virginia’s Homecoming with a 19-14 victory over WVU (5-2, 1-1 Big East) — its first since 2001.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text With the win, Syracuse brings back the Schwartzwalder Trophy, given to the winner of this game each year. ‘We weren’t playing to (preserve) the win,’ junior defensive end Mikhail Marinovich said. ‘We were playing to attack, attack, attack. … That’s the mindset we went out with.’ After allowing WVU to score touchdowns on two of its first three possessions to start the game, the SU defense clamped down. What started with a Phillip Thomas interception at the goal line, with the Orange trailing 14-10, ended with SU celebrating at midfield after holding the Mountaineers scoreless for the final three quarters. Thomas’ interception proved to be pivotal, as were the two interceptions by linebacker Doug Hogue. Overall, with the three turnovers, five sacks, and point total and yardage allowed, the performance was easily SU’s most impressive defensively. Especially after allowing 45 points to Pittsburgh just a week ago inside the Carrier Dome. ‘Last week, we were very disappointed,’ senior middle linebacker Derrell Smith said. ‘We went down to South Florida two weeks ago, got a win and maybe there was a relaxed feeling. But we took care of it fast after that Pittsburgh loss.’ After a Hogue interception on WVU’s first possession set up a Syracuse field goal, the Orange grabbed some initial momentum. The next three possessions all ended in touchdown celebrations — two by the Mountaineers and one for the Orange. But with Thomas’ interception, the Mountaineers missed an opportunity to go up 21-10, and the Orange kept pounding the ball and taking points. Kicker Ross Krautman made four field goals, the longest of which came from 33 yards out. The Orange also implemented a few packages that defensive coordinator Scott Shafer had been keeping in his back pocket for such an occasion. That allowed SU to put pressure on Smith and neutralize such an explosive offense — one that entered the game ranked third in the Big East in total offense. ‘West Virginia is a great football team,’ SU head coach Doug Marrone said. ‘There is no plan or anything to beating a West Virginia football team. The only way is you go out there and you play your heart out. … And at the end of the day, you hope you can execute better and take advantage of maybe some miscues. And we were able to do that.’ With the win, the Orange surpassed its win total from last season, Marrone’s first on the job, and it allows SU to take one step closer to its first bowl bid since 2004. It also puts the Orange in second place in the Big East after eight weeks. Until now, beating West Virginia was something the players and coaches had only dreamt about. But stopping a driving WVU offense in the final minute changed all that. And the final sack secured it. ‘There was a lot of pressure to keep them out of the end zone,’ Hogue said. ‘But it was amazing. We just played solid football, stayed disciplined and got the job done. ‘It’s still settling in on me. It’s just a great feeling.’ aljohn@syr.edulast_img read more

Schneidman: Syracuse will need more from hybrids with Ervin Philips out

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 13, 2015 at 7:48 pm Lying in bed is not what Syracuse needs Ervin Philips to be doing.The team’s most versatile offensive weapon will be out 3-4 weeks after having surgery last Tuesday to repair his meniscus and his roommate, wide receiver Steve Ishmael, said that’s what the sophomore hybrid has been up to around their apartment.Granted, his second-half absence had no adverse effect in a 47-0 drubbing of Rhode Island after he caught two touchdowns in the first frame. Nor did it in a 30-17 win against Wake Forest. And it probably won’t against Central Michigan next weekend.But if Philips misses the four weeks Scott Shafer said he might, that’s an LSU-South Florida-Virginia stretch without the 5-foot-11 spark plug that would give freshman quarterback Eric Dungey another option as he grows accustomed to the offense. Hybrids Ben Lewis and Dontae Strickland, who combined for 29 yards on two touches against WFU, need to be used more if Syracuse wants to spread out the better defenses it will face.“There’s certain plays that I’ll call more when he’s in the game because he’s just so fast and dynamic and getting into space makes a big difference for us,” offensive coordinator Tim Lester said of Philips. “We’ll still run everything but the quantity might change of each play.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIf that quantity is limited, it restricts the Syracuse offense. The Orange ran 37 times against Wake – only once to a hybrid – compared to 14 passes, one of which was to Strickland and none to Lewis. That’s two out of 51 plays directed toward the do-it-all position that hasn’t done much since Philips’ injury, aside from a Strickland garbage-time score against URI.“You know Erv, he’s so swifty, man, he can move left and right in .0 seconds,” Ishmael said. “From the H position with Erv not there, I feel like (Dungey’s) a little more cautious…I feel like he’s a little more cautious, which made them run the ball a lot more today.”It’s fine if Dungey gets his feet wet handing the ball off 73 percent of the time, but against a better team than Wake Forest, the offense needs to be a little less predictable. What better way to do that than integrate what was supposed to be the most unpredictable position?LSU allowed six points through three quarters in a win over Mississippi State Saturday, USF held No. 9 Florida State to only seven first-half points and Virginia nearly knocked off No. 8 Notre Dame after allowing just 12 points in the first 30 minutes.On Saturday, Lewis’ only carry came on a triple-option pitch for 17 yards on SU’s first drive. Strickland, after running for 42 yards and a score Week 1, had a sole carry for 12 yards while Syracuse’s offense struggled to get going.Lester acknowledged it and he’s right, if Lewis or Strickland isn’t open or isn’t needed, then who cares if they get two total touches as long as the Orange wins? He said the pair looked good all week in practice, but Syracuse just didn’t need them against the Demon Deacons.But if SU sticks between the hashmarks with Dungey adjusting to his full-time role, Syracuse will need as many viable options to make plays outside the hashes when the freshman strays away from handing it off up the gut. There won’t always be 89- and 53-yard scores to your top two targets to bail out a game.“With what we were doing, it’s weird,” Lester said. “Because it could be one of those games that Z has 270 yards receiving and the X doesn’t and the next, the X could.”It’s nice to have Brisly Estime be the Z and Ishmael be the X, but against others the Orange might need a U, W and Y more potent than Kendall Moore and Josh Parris, hardly big-play guys, but ones whose three combined grabs against WFU were three more than both backup wideouts.For now, Philips listens to encouragement from Ishmael. They read Ishmael’s Bible together. They try to stay positive and focus on bigger things in life than football.Until his return, Philips’ activity, and Syracuse’s versatility on offense will be limited.“As we continue progressing, I know when he comes back, it’s going to change everything man,” Ishmael said. “…and when he comes, it’s going to open up a lot more.” Commentslast_img read more

Evans limited, Grubbs removed from Wednesday injury report

first_imgPracticing for the first time in four weeks, Ravens wide receiver Lee Evans appears closer to returning to action after working on a limited basis Wednesday.The former Buffalo Bills wideout, acquired for a fourth-round pick during the preseason, has not played since Week 2 while dealing with a left ankle injury. In Evans’ absence, rookie Torrey Smith has emerged as the No. 2 receiver behind Anquan Boldin and caught the game-winning touchdown in Pittsburgh last Sunday night.Evans expressed optimism on Wednesday that he could make his return to action against the Seahawks on Sunday after missing the Ravens’ last six games.Left guard Ben Grubbs did not appear on Wednesday’s injury report after practicing all last week on a limited basis before playing against the Steelers. The fifth-year offensive lineman is still experiencing pain in the injured right toe that sidelined him for six games, but expressed confidence that he will be able to continue playing through the discomfort.The Baltimore offensive line has missed Grubbs leadership and stellar play at guard. Despite the Ravens struggling to gain yardage on the ground, the offensive line appeared to gain a boost with the 2007 first-round pick’s return against the Steelers.“Ben’s played guard all those years and is very familiar with our system, so things were a little smoother in there,” coach John Harbaugh said. “Andre [Gurode] did a great job while he was in there, for what he had to overcome especially, to learn the position. Ben’s the left guard, he’s the starter, so it smoothed things out a little bit for us.”Veteran center Matt Birk was the only Ravens player not to participate during Wednesday’s practice. It’s expected that Birk was receiving a periodic day off as he deals with a nagging neck issue and rests his surgically-repaired knee.Linebacker Dannell Ellerbe also returned to the practice field after being sidelined for the last three games with a hamstring injury.The Seahawks were without starting wide receiver Sidney Rice, who has been dealing with a lingering foot injury. Seattle quarterback Tarvaris Jackson practiced on a limited basis Wednesday.BALTIMOREDID NOT PARTICIPATE: C Matt Birk (neck)LIMITED: RB Anthony Allen (thigh), LB Brendon Ayanbadejo (head), LB Dannell Ellerbe (thigh), WR Lee Evans (ankle), TE Kris Wilson (calf)FULL: CB Chykie Brown (knee)SEATTLEDID NOT PARTICIPATE: TE Cameron Morrah (toe, knee), WR Sidney Rice (foot), LB David Vobora (concussion)LIMITED: QB Tarvaris Jackson (pectoral)last_img read more

Bengals vs. Steelers final score: Steelers defense shuts down Bengals in win

first_imgThe offense does still have some question marks under Mason Rudolph. Making only his second start, Rudolph dumped off 16 passes of his total 24 completions to running backs as a safety net for his offense. Those backs made the most of their opportunities, carrying those passes for 140 yards. MORE: Watch the NFL with fuboTV (7-day free trial)James Conner and Jaylen Samuels also each scored off rushes, though neither amassed much rushing yards, with Conner rushing 10 times for 42 yards and Samuels taking 10 carries 26 yards. On the other side of the field, Andy Dalton didn’t do much with the limited time he was given in the pocket. When he wasn’t being sacked a career-high eight times, he completed just 21 passes on 37 attempts for 171 yards and threw an interception. The struggles to protect Dalton extended to opening up space for Joe Mixon, who could only rush for 62 yards on 15 carries.With the win, the Steelers move a step closer to the division-leading Browns. Cleveland is 2-2, a record matched by the Ravens, though the Browns hold the tiebreaker after the win on Sunday. Making the postseason in 2019 could still be an uphill battle for a Pittsburgh team that will have to find a new offensive identity with Rudolph at the helm instead of Roethlisberger, but the pieces are there for the Steelers to continue to build off this win.
