Loading… Argentina’s 1986 World Cup winning coach Carlos Bilardo was diagnosed with COVID-19 by mistake, his brother said Sunday. Argentinian World Cup coach Carlos Bilardo (L, pictured 1986) was hospitalized after testing positive for the coronavirus, despite being asymptomatic — his brother says the diagnosis was wrong “My brother has nothing, the very famous lab was wrong, it’s to kill them, almost certainly he’s going back to the same place,” Jorge Bilardo wrote on Twitter. The 82-year-old had been hospitalized Saturday after testing positive for the coronavirus the day before, despite being asymptomatic. Bilardo suffers from a brain disorder and lives in a nursing home where 10 other occupants have tested positive for COVID-19. According to his brother, once he is discharged, he will likely return to the same facility, in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Almagro. Bilardo was hospitalized earlier Sunday at the private Argentina Institute of Diagnosis, which did not release a report on his health status. He had already undergone a COVID-19 test a few weeks ago that came back negative.last_img read more

Hospital At the Center of Jodian Fearon’s Death Not Registered to…

first_imgAndrews Memorial Hospital, the private hospital in Kingston which is at the center of Jodian Fearon’s death, is not among the 2020 list of registered private healthcare facilities in Jamaica, according to The Gleaner. “Registration is only valid for two years and general signals that an institution has met the minimum standards in areas such as physical environment, operation procedures, equipment, patient management and staffing”, said the Gleaner. Tufton has put the blame on years of inaction across political administrations in failing to revise outdated legislation and has shouldered some personal responsibility for not operationalising a new framework. The development comes following a probe into the operations of the hospital and the circumstances which led to the death of 23-year-old Jodian Fearon. The massive oversight signals that neither the private institutions nor the ministry of health has sought to ensure that all the relevant health acts, guidelines and laws were being adhered to. Investigations show that only four private hospitals are currently certified to operate under the 86-year-old Nursing Homes Registration Act (NHRA). The list excludes Andrews Memorial Hospital. Health and Wellness Minister Dr Christopher Tufton disclosed that he was “unaware” that Andrews Memorial Hospital was among the uncertified facilities. Fearon was admitted to the hospital while in labor but medics at the facility opted to transfer her, fearing that she was displaying symptoms of COVID-19. Two other hospitals- the University Hospital of the West Indies and the Victoria Jubilee Hospital denied accepting Fearon and she was later transferred to the Spanish Town Hospital. After giving birth, she allegedly died of heart failure. Under the NRHA, operating an unregistered facility is an offence that carries fines of up to $500,000 and prison time not exceeding three months. “I’ve asked the Standards and Regulation Division (of the health ministry) to use the Public Health Act to conduct appropriate levels of inspection where necessary. There are a number of privately operated institutions that have not even registered or applied for registration under the NRHA,” Tufton said. According to the report, Jamaican private hospitals are governed under the Nursing Homes Registration Act (NHRA) of 1934, which is separate from the National Health Services Act, which regulates public hospitals.last_img read more
