Notre Dame COVID-19 outbreak demonstrates superspreader potential, study finds

first_imgOut of a study of 30 universities, Notre Dame was found to have the worst COVID-19 outbreak this fall, and the cases on campus demonstrated some correlation with cases in the wider South Bend community (as measured with a seven-day per 100,000 cases metric), according to a study published by Stanford University professors Jan. 13. The study found that a Notre Dame outbreak which occurred at the beginning of the semester correlated with an increase in COVID-19 cases in St. Joseph County. Over the course of the semester, 14.5% of Notre Dame students became infected with COVID-19, and the cumulative infection rate in St. Joseph County was 7.8%. This can be compared to the average infection rate in Indiana at 6.5% and the national average at the time 5.3%.Notre Dame’s decision to move classes online for two weeks appeared to contain the spread, but the results of the research suggest that unlike Notre Dame, St. Joseph County struggled to decrease the spread in the following months, “indicating that the initial outbreak at the University of Notre Dame had superspreading-like effects on its home county.”However, the lack of contact tracing between Notre Dame students and St. Joseph County citizens prevents the August outbreak at Notre Dame from being characterized definitively as a super-spreader event, WSBT reported. University spokesman Paul Browne said in a conversation with deputy health officer for St. Joseph County Dr. Mark Fox, Fox said “he couldn’t duplicate the report findings as they applied to St. Joseph County and Notre Dame.” “On a separate occasion recently, Dr. Fox said that if Notre Dame was a super spreader, he would have expected to see a decline in the county after students left for their extended winter break,” Browne said in an email. “Instead, there was an increase.” Notre Dame announced Thursday new plans to attempt to decrease the spread of COVID-19 on campus this spring, including weekly surveillance testing for all students and harsher discipline for students who do not abide by health and safety protocols.“There will be increased testing on campus during the spring semester, approximately 14,000 tests weekly,” Browne said. “No one will be able to begin classes in person until she or he tests negative.”Tags: COVID-19, Dr. Mark Fox, Paul Browne, St. Joseph Countylast_img read more

Bolivian Army and National Police Eradicate Large Amounts of Illegal Coca

first_imgSince January 1, the Bolivian Army and National Police have eradicated 960 hectares of illegal coca crops that would have been used to make cocaine, Felipe Cáceres, Bolivia’s Vice Minister of Social Defense and Controlled Substances, said on March 25. Since January 1, the Bolivian Army and National Police have eradicated 960 hectares of illegal coca crops that would have been used to make cocaine, Felipe Cáceres, Bolivia’s Vice Minister of Social Defense and Controlled Substances, said on March 25. The Colombian National Army’s Infantry Battalion No. 47’s General Francisco de Paula Vélez Unit destroyed two cocaine laboratories belonging to the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and two others operated by Clan Úsuga. In Bolivia, farmers working on behalf of drug trafficking organizations cultivated 23,000 hectares to grow coca in 2013, the smallest number of hectares used for such purposes since 2002, according to the International Narcotics Control Board. Bolivia grows limited amounts of legal coca, which is used in teas, medicine, and during Andean religious rites.

Colombian National Army destroys 4 cocaine-producing laboratories The Army didn’t immediately report the names of the three suspects they captured during the raids. Three of the laboratories were in the Department of Chocó, while the other was in the Department of Antioquia. Soldiers and police concentrated their eradication efforts in the tropical regions of Yungas and Cochabamba; they’re also searching for illegal coca plantations in natural parks and ecological reserves nationwide to prevent the country’s resources from being exploited by narcotraffickers. The unit, which is part of the Army’s Seventeenth Brigade, collectively seized 88 kilograms of chopped coca leaves, 390 gallons of gasoline and 171 kilograms of urea among other supplies and equipment. Each laboratory could produce more than 80 kilograms of cocaine monthly; thus the raids dealt a severe financial blow to the FARC and Clan Úsuga, as each kilogram of cocaine was worth about $80 million Colombian pesos (about $31,551 dollars).

Women’s basketball: Tsipis introduced as new era of Badger basketball begins

first_imgThe next era of University of Wisconsin women’s basketball started today as Jonathan Tsipis was introduced as the seventh head coach in program history.Tsipis, fresh off a highly successful four-year run at George Washington, was eager to get started as the head man at Wisconsin and made it clear that this program was about to go on the upswing.Tsipis, with a list of notes at his side, detailed the core principles he plans to instill at Wisconsin, and it all starts with family.The new Badger head man told his children that they now have 15 role models and the team now has a nine-year-old brother and an eleven-year-old sister whether they like it or not.“We’re going to build this in a family environment with that understanding that everyone is a part of that,” Tsipis said.Switching to his basketball philosophy, Tsipis wants Wisconsin to play an uptempo style that puts pressure on the opponent and plays among the faster teams in the conference. Tsipis stated that he wants his teams to have between 85-90 possessions a game and that they will wear down their opponents.Tsipis also stressed that the Badgers will live and die on the glass. His George Washington teams ranked among the top in the nation in rebounding margin in their last two years, and Tsipis expects that to continue at Wisconsin.In addition to a fast tempo and a focus on rebounding, Tsipis foresees the Badgers playing a multiple-defensive set based in man-to-man principles. Although he seemed to be a man of staunch principle, he admitted he would adjust his philosophy to his personnel and that they will attack the opposing team on the defensive end.Tsipis showed his fiery personality when he declared that he disagreed with athletic director Barry Alvarez’s “wall the state” mantra. Instead, he has an in-state recruiting philosophy of his own.“Coach [Alvarez] talks about building a wall around the state of Wisconsin,” Tsipis said. “The only problem that I have about that is that people can climb over the wall. So, we’re going to build a dome so that they can’t get out. They have got to stay here to see what we’re able to do.”Tsipis said he wants the entire state to feel comfortable with not only him, but the program as well and mentioned that he had already been out recruiting the state in the 24 hours since he accepted the job.Overall, as the first male head coach in Wisconsin women’s basketball history, he breathes a new life into the program. As many people say when they accept a new position at a large state school, he mentioned that the Wisconsin job is a sleeping giant. Time will tell if his enthusiastic press conference will flip the script on the recent downtrend of Wisconsin basketball, but Tsipis seems have the spark that can get the giant on its feet.last_img read more
