(Photo by Lauren Crawford.)The annual TCU flu clinic ran out of vaccines by 11:15 this morning after administering 3,000 of the shots to students, staff and faculty.The clinic was supposed to run until 4 p.m. Wednesday but closed after running out of vaccines. The quick run time of the clinic was due in part to fewer shots being offered after TCU gave out 1,000 shots earlier this semester to help combat an early outbreak of the flu.Every flu season is different and The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said they do not know ahead of time when they are going to start to see flu circulation. Health officials said it is impossible to predict what kind of influenza season to expect in 2017-18.Flu vaccines cause antibodies to develop in the body about two weeks after vaccination. The CDC said these antibodies provide protection against infection with the viruses that are in the vaccine.Junior Sydney Padden received her vaccine Wednesday morning and said she gets her shot every year.“I was not nervous because it doesn’t hurt at all and TCU makes it so easy,” Padden said. “The process was very easy and very quick. I was very happy with the service I received.”Senior nursing student, Danika Cline helped give out the vaccines and encouraged people to get their shot.“Everyone should get vaccinated each year for a vaccinated person’s immunity usually declines after a year,” Cline said. “One thing to note for the 2017-18 year is that the live attenuated influenza vaccine/nasal spray vaccine is not recommended because it is not very effective.”The CDC also recommends the use of injectable influenza vaccines as opposed to the nasal spray flu vaccine.Cline and other senior nursing students recommend that a good time to get vaccinated is usually September-November, but suggest to go anytime the shot becomes available in the community, preferably before it spreads as well.The CDC also recommends everyday preventive actions, like staying away from people who are sick, covering coughs and sneezes and frequent hand washing, to help slow the spread of germs that cause respiratory illnesses, like flu.

May God be with the victims of this pandemic and bring aid and comfort to their families and friends.”The proclamation covers all public grounds, military posts and naval stations, U.S Navy ships as well as American embassies, legations, consular offices and other U.S. facilities abroad.House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer sent a letter to Trump earlier Thursday requesting he “order flags to be flown at half staff on all public buildings in our country on the sad day of reckoning when we reach 100,000 deaths. It would serve as a national expression of grief so needed by everyone in our country.”There have been 93,061 deaths in the U.S., according to figures released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.Speaking at a virtual fundraiser April 29, former Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic Party’s presumptive presidential nominee said, “I’ve suggested the president should lower the flag to half-mast, honoring all those people — particularly those first responders, those doctors, those nurses — those folks who went in without the PPP, the protective equipment, and still did their job. And some of them lost their lives. They’re heroes.

C. Sharma and Justice Shailendra Shukla was hearing the plea of the Petitioner-Hospital (Maharaja Yeshwant Rao Hospital) through its Superintendent Dr. P.S. Thakur.It was argued by the Petitioner-Hospital that the aforesaid notification issued by the Maharashtra Government is contrary to Article 14, Article 21 of the Constitution of India and the Judgments of the Hon’ble Supreme declaring the right to health and medical services as the fundamental right of the citizen to live life with dignity.It was alleged that the notification dated 07.09.2020 (issued by the Govt. of Maharashtra) is discriminatory in nature as it tends to discriminate between the patients based on their region or-domicile or on the basis of the State where they live or getting the treatment.Significantly, the State of Maharastra in the aforesaid Circular has observed that liquid medical oxygen supply is very crucial to the management of patients infected with Covid-19 and, therefore, 80% of the production is to be used only for Hospitals in MaharashtraFacts in Brief, as alleged by the PetitionerThe Petitioner herein, (M.Y. Hospital) is a super-specialty government hospital in the district Indore, Madhya Pradesh and catering to the medical needs of the COVID infected as well as the other patients.That, the Petitioner/M.Y. Hospital, Indore/Buyer had entered into an agreement for the supply of liquid gases with M/s. INOX Air. Products Private Ltd./Supplier, Mumbai, Maharashtra on 21.05.2018 wherein it was agreed that M/s. INOXAP shall supply Liquid Oxygen/Nitrogen/Argon/Medical Oxygen manufactured by them at the Buyer’s site. This agreement is for three/3 years and valid till 20.05.2021.The District Hospital Vidisha, M.P. on 20.03.2020 entered into an agreement with M/s. Capital Medicare, Bhopal for the supply of medical oxygen to the hospital.M/s. Capital Medicare, Bhopal purchases medical oxygen from M/s. INOXAP, Mumbai. The notification dated 07.09.2020 regularizing and mandating 80% of the supply of the medical oxygen to the hospitals in the State of Maharashtra will adversely affect the supply of medical oxygen to the District Hospital Vidisha, M.P. wherein the Covid-19 patients are also treated.The petitioner categorically stated in the writ petition that they have been informed by the respondent No.3 about the discontinuance in the supply of liquid medical oxygen and the sole reason is a circular issued by the State of Maharasthra dated 07-09-2020The Arguments put forthLearned Advocate General argued before the court that large numbers of patients are dying because of COVID-19 and State cannot close its eyes towards the dying persons who are dying on account of non-supply of liquid medical oxygen.The Advocate General drew the attention of the court towards an Agreement executed by the petitioner Hospital with respondent No.3 M/s Inox Air Products Pvt. Ltd. and twenty tonnes of liquid medical oxygen is being supplied to the State of Madhya Pradesh by M/s Inox Air Products Pvt. Ltd. The agreement between the petitioner and the respondent No.3 is very much in force.He also drew the attention of the court towards the letter dated 10-09-2020 which is addressed by the Secretary Health to all Chief Secretaries all over the country.The Government of India has categorically written to all the State Governments to continue with the existing supply under the various agreements with Hospitals and various States with a legal obligation to fulfill such agreements.[NOTE: The Union Health Ministry on Thursday asked states not to place restrictions on transport or supplies of medical oxygen after the Madhya Pradesh Government claimed Maharashtra was doing this and at least three other states Punjab, Karnataka, and Telangana — reported problems in getting regular supplies.]The Advocate General argued before the court that it is very unfortunate that even after the intervention of the Government of India the oxygen supply is being discontinued.It was prayed before the Court to direct the State of Maharashtra and the respondent No.3 to continue the supply of liquid medical oxygen as per the Agreement executed from time to time.Court’s ObservationThe Court remarked,”(The Petitioner-Hospital) is catering to the need of downtrodden and persons as far from Alirajpur District, Jhabu Districts which are Districts dominated by tribals are totally dependent upon Maharaja Yeshwant Rao Hospital. It is the only Hospital in the entire region of Malwa under the control of the State Government which is providing all kind of advance treatments including treatment to the COVID patients.”It may be noted that the Advocate General had placed reliance upon a judgment delivered by the Hon’ble Supreme Court in the case of Nawal Kishore Sharma Vs. Union of India and others 2014 (9) SCC 329 and stated that the substantial cause of action is also under the territorial jurisdiction of this court as the agreement between the petitioner and respondent No.3 has been signed at Indore only.To this, the Court observed”In the peculiar facts and circumstances of the case was that the issue of jurisdiction is certainly an arguable point and is left open.” (emphasis supplied)The Court, keeping in view the totality of the facts and circumstances of the case was of the opinion that the Counsel for the Petitioner ‘Maharaja Yeshwant Rao Hospital’ was able to make out a prima-facie case for grant of interim relief.By way of interim relief, the respondent No.3 M/s Inox Air Products Pvt. Ltd was directed by the Court to continue the uninterrupted supply of liquid medical oxygen to the State of Madhya Pradesh including the petitioner Hospital, “without being influenced by the Circular dated 07-09-2020 especially the Condition No.2 issued by the State of Maharashtra.”Meaning thereby, the supply of liquid medical oxygen to the State of Madhya Pradesh has to be done by the respondent No.3 uninterruptedly, until further orders.(With inputs from Advocate Mudit Maheshwari)Case Details:Case Title: Maharaja Yeshwant Rao Hospital (M.Y.

Shooting at Kentucky grocery store raises questions about hate crime

first_imgGoogle Maps Street View(JEFFERSONTOWN, Ky.) — Two recent shootings in the U.S. — one in Kentucky, one in Pennsylvania — are both being investigated as possible hate crimes, authorities said.The suspect who fatally shot two people at a Kentucky Kroger grocery store on Oct. 24 reportedly tried to get into a black church before the shooting, raising questions about his intentions.Sam Rogers, the police chief of Jeffersontown, Kentucky, said the suspect, identified by police as Gregory Bush, 51, was spotted outside the First Baptist Church before the shooting at Kroger.Bush was seen on the church’s security footage, according to the police department. The church was closed when Bush had arrived.The investigation into the shooting is ongoing and the charges against Bush have not yet been announced.“Our hearts break for the families of the those we lost to the tragedy at the Jeffersontown Kroger. The murders are not being taken lightly by the United States government,” Russell Coleman, the U.S. attorney for the Western District of Kentucky, said in a statement.“Federal investigators are supporting local law enforcement and examining this matter from the perspective of federal criminal law, which includes potential civil rights violations such as hate crimes,” Coleman said.On Saturday Oct. 27, a gunman stormed into a Pittsburgh synagogue, killing 11 people.Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who represents Kentucky, referenced the “horrendous shootings” at an event Monday in Shelbyville, Tennessee.“If this isn’t a hate crime, I don’t know what the definition of a hate crime is. Obviously they were,” McConnell said. “I don’t know what’s going on in our country.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

The twisters wiped out dozens of homes and businesses, including churches and schools.Some of those killed were asleep in their beds, officials said.Wilson County Mayor Randall Hutto told ABC News that a person in the town of Lebanon, who had been found in a damaged facility, died on Wednesday to become the 25th victim of the storm.“It hit so fast, a lot of folks didn’t have time to take shelter,” Porter said. “Many of these folks were sleeping.” This is the damage around Catalpa Drive & Fescue Drive in Mt. Juliet. The area has been absolutely decimated. The cleanup has begun, but it’s going to be an incredibly long process.

We could hear objects slamming against the building … it was terrifying,” Duncan told ABC News. “They say tornadoes sound like a train … they were not lying. The feeling in my head from the pressure was insane. I’ve never felt anything like it.”Evan Winsor told ABC News he saw lightning hit the telephone pole in his Nashville backyard, knocking out the power. The wind picked up and it started to rain and hail, so he rushed to the basement to take cover.Winsor said his neighbors were “in disbelief” as they surveyed the toppled telephone poles and rubble in the street.One neighborhood “totally wiped out” was Five Points, an “iconic cultural hub in Nashville — especially with the local music and food scene,” Winsor said.The Basement East live music venue was completely destroyed.center_img A tough morning across the state of #Tennesse — we’re live from #Nashville @GMA pic.twitter.com/ttBUMRlEQL— Rob Marciano (@RobMarciano) March 4, 2020The twisters left planes decimated at the John C.

No one there was injured and crews from Nashville International Airport will help rebuild, said Doug Kreulen, Nashville International Airport president and CEO.Decosta Jenkins, CEO of Nashville Electric Service, called this the “most devastating storm of my career.”About 600 utility poles were broken, Jenkins said. As of Wednesday afternoon about 34,800 customers remained without power.Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee has declared a state of emergency as a result of the devastation. President Donald Trump said he plans to visit Tennessee on Friday.The National Guard has been deployed to help with search-and-rescue efforts.Putnam County Sheriff Eddie Farris said Wednesday that crews still have to comb though about 40% of the rubble.Despite the destruction, Winsor said the community is pulling together to help each other.Nashville Mayor John Cooper said the website for Nashville volunteer organization Hands On Nashville crashed three times Tuesday from so many people trying to sign up to volunteer.Cooper said Google pledged $100,000 and that Amazon is donating supplies to community centers.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
