Indonesia’s women comply with COVID-19 health protocols more than men: BPS survey

October 19, 2020

first_imgIt has been more than six months since the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic.Since then, more people have been practicing the “3M” protocols: menggunakan masker (mask-wearing), mencuci tangan (handwashing) and menjaga jarak (social distancing). The protocols are considered to be effective at preventing person-to-person transmission of COVID-19, but not everyone has managed to maintain diligent compliance with them. A survey conducted by Statistics Indonesia (BPS) from Sept. 7 to 14 highlights a gender divide in the observance of COVID-19 health protocols.Involving 90,967 respondents from across the archipelago, the survey shows that women are more likely to comply with the health protocols than men.In the survey, 94.8 percent of women respondents said they wore a mask, compared to 88.5 percent of men respondents.Read also: Garuda paints masks on aircraft to support health campaignFurthermore, 80.1 percent of women respondents had been washing their hands with soap for around 20 seconds, while only 69.5 percent of men respondents did the same.Among the 3M protocols, the respondents found that social distancing was the hardest to practice, with only 77.5 percent of women respondents and 68.7 percent of men respondents saying they were applying the 1-meter physical distancing protocol.Among the reasons for not practicing the 3M protocols, 55 percent of respondents cited the lack of sanctions.Discussing the gender divide in 3M practices, the national COVID-19 task force’s behavior change division head, Sonny Harry B. Harmadi, said similar surveys had been conducted in April and July and had presented similar results, with women being more aware of the COVID-19 health protocols.When asked about the reasons, Sonny said women were closer to their family and more aware of the danger caused by COVID-19. He mentioned that it was among the reasons why the task force used “Ingat Pesan Ibu” (remember mother’s message) as a tagline for its COVID-19 prevention campaign.Read also: Mahfud MD asks artists, cultural practitioners to promote health protocols“[Women] know that they could spread the virus to their family members, leading them to follow the health protocols,” said Sonny during a virtual meeting on Friday.He also added that COVID-19 was often transmitted from the people near us, not from people outside our inner circles. Women’s Empowerment and Child Protection Minister Bintang Puspayoga also has urged families to avoid hosting or attending family gatherings, following the emergence of COVID-19 infection clusters in families.Indonesia has seen a continuously rising number of cases since March. As of Saturday, the country recorded 299,506 confirmed cases with 225,052 recoveries and 11,055 deaths.

Eto’o Faces 10-Year Jail Sentence over Tax Fraud

September 18, 2020

first_imgIf true, this would mean he avoided paying the top tax rate, which at the time stood at 45 per cent.There are four charges levelled against him, El Pais claims, which could amount to 10 and a half years behind bars and a fine of €14m.Additionally, his agent at the time, Josep Maria Mesalles, would also stand trial if the reported prosecution effort is accepted.Eto’o is not the first star associated with the Camp Nou club to come under scrutiny for his tax returns, with Lionel Messi handed a 21-month suspended prison sentence in July after being found guilty of tax evasion. The Ballon d’Or winner only avoided time behind bars due to his previously clean criminal record.Currently, Neymar is accused of similar charges, and on Wednesday the prosecutor requested that he be sentenced to two years in jail if he is found guilty.Like Messi, Neymar is unlikely to find himself in prison, even if the charges against him are found to have substance due to lacking previous convictions.Eto’o spent five successful seasons at Barca between 2004 and 2009, during which time he scored 129 goals for the club in 201 appearances. He was a key figure for Frank Rijkaard’s men as they claimed the European Cup in 2006, scoring the equaliser in a 2-1 victory over Arsenal, and won African Footballer of the Year twice while at Camp Nou.After leaving Barca, he won the Champions League at Inter before high-profile moves to Anzhi and Chelsea.

Women of Troy look to move past loss to Stanford

September 17, 2020

first_imgUSC coach Jovan Vavic and the USC women’s water polo team enter this weekend’s Mountain Pacific Sports Federation postseason play ranked second in the nation. After spending the previous two months as the country’s top team, the amount of pressure on their shoulders hasn’t changed — for better or worse.Big test · Senior utility Forel Davies and the Women of Troy will be faced with a tough MPSF tournament when they travel to Spieker Aquatic Center on UCLA’s campus. – Gary Fung | Daily Trojan When now-No. 1 Stanford topped the Women of Troy 7-6 in overtime Saturday, the Cardinal knocked USC from its perch atop the water polo world. The Women of Troy had won 19 consecutive matches before the game. But the players still expect their opponents to approach them as if they had never lost.“We’ve been a target throughout the season and will remain one,” said senior two-meter Kami Craig, the team captain. “I believe we’ll stand up to that challenge.”The Women of Troy — defending MPSF champions — will make the short trip to UCLA’s Spieker Aquatic Center from Friday through Sunday. The opening round in the eight-team tournament will pit them against seventh-seeded San Diego State in a 10 a.m. Friday match-up. A win in that game would propel them into the semifinals against either No. 3 seed California or No. 6 seed San Jose State on Saturday. The championship game will be held Sunday, and the winner will get an automatic bid to the NCAA championships.Vavic made clear that his team did not execute its game plan against Stanford, as the Trojans squandered many opportunities to put the Cardinal away. Vavic told his players that they were neither outcoached nor bested by a more talented squad — they were just unfocused and unprepared for Stanford’s intensity.“Our overall focus on the game was bad,” Craig said. “We need to be better on transition defense. Offensively, we need to finish opportunities when we create them. They came out with more intensity this time because they wanted to impress their fans on their Senior Day.”Although the Cardinal and Women of Troy draw much of the attention in the MPSF tournament, there are other teams hungry to knock off these two behemoths. The No. 13 Aztecs competed with USC in March but fell 9-4; the Women of Troy outscored Cal 17-9 in two matches and San Jose State 13-6 in February but couldn’t blow either team out.“We can’t overlook anyone — Cal, Hawai’i, UCLA,” Craig said. “When it comes down to it, it’s anyone’s games. Teams have nothing to lose, so they go for it.”last_img read more
