Latin America cuts Europe travel links over virus fears

first_img“This decision has been taken regionally, so there will be no flights to our continent from Europe,” Edgar Melgarejo, president of Paraguay’s National Directorate of Civil Aeronautics, told reporters.The Peruvian government also suspended flights from Asia.Latin America’s biggest airline, the Chilean-Brazilian carrier Latam, said it was canceling 30 percent of its international flights for a two-month period due to falling demand over the coronavirus crisis.The measure will mainly affect flights from South America to Europe and the United States between April 1 and May 30, the company said.Argentina’s government suspended international flights from the worst affected countries, without stipulating which ones, for 30 days and declared a year-long health emergency.Last Saturday, Argentina was the first Latin American country to announce a death and has had 31 cases.Six Central American states and the Dominican Republic agreed Thursday to formulate a regional contingency plan to complement national efforts to deal with the coronavirus. The region has more than 50 cases, most of them in Costa Rica and Panama. “Countries must prepare their health services, because there will not just be one or two cases,” PAHO epidemiologist Marcos Espinal told AFP.Though still low in terms of global figures, the number of cases in Latin America grew steadily to reach more than 250 in 15 countries, with three deaths.The latest came in Guyana, where a 52-year-old local woman died. She had tested positive shortly after arriving from the United States last week.Following Venezuela and Bolivia, Paraguay and Peru became the latest countries to suspend flights from Europe, where Italy’s death toll from the virus soared past 1,000. Football matches suspended Other measures announced by Duque included suspending prison visits and banning cruise ships landing at the popular ports of Cartagena and Santa Marta.PAHO said it was sending support missions to countries with the weakest health services — Haiti, Venezuela, Honduras and Paraguay. “But everyone has to do their part — governments, civil society, citizens — because it is a multisectoral effort,” Espinal told AFP.Worst hit of the stock markets was Sao Paulo which plunged almost 15 percent by the close. Argentina fell almost 10 percent with Colombia down more than nine percent, Santiago losing over six percent and Mexico 5.3 percent.The Mexican peso closed at 21.64 to the US dollar, its lowest level since January 2017.Sport hasn’t been spared with world football governing body FIFA calling off two rounds of South American qualifying matches for the 2022 World Cup due to be played at the end of the month.Regional governing body CONMEBOL also suspended the next round of Copa Libertadores matches to be played next week.The Bahamas government said it had decided to withdraw from hosting the 50th General Assembly of the Organization of American States in June. Latin American states preparing for the onslaught of the new coronavirus on Thursday tightened restrictions on travel links to Europe as the region recorded its third death in the outbreak.Fears over the pandemic swept through Latin American markets, continuing a global rout that began in Asia early Thursday and forced the region’s biggest carrier to slash flights.The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) warned governments to get ready to cope with the pandemic.center_img ‘Health emergency’ As well as the travel restrictions, Bolivia’s interim President Jeanine Anez announced the closure of school and university classes.”I am making an appeal to Bolivians for calm,” Anez told reporters.Mexico’s private Tecnologico de Monterrey, with 150,000 students and 30,000 staff in several states, said it would suspend classes next week and resume them online later in the month.Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said there were no confirmed cases in his crisis-worn country, but said large public gatherings and concerts were now prohibited.”We have to take gradually escalating measures,” he said after announcing the suspension of all flights from Europe for a month.Maduro also halted flights from neighboring Colombia, where President Ivan Duque declared a “health emergency” to help health services respond faster to the unfolding crisis.Socialist leader Maduro said Venezuela was considering closing its borders with Colombia and Brazil but called for “coordination” with the right-wing governments of Duque and Jair Bolsonaro, both of which have branded him a dictator.Maduro’s challenger for power, Juan Guaido, said the pandemic obliged him to reconsider calling his supporters into the streets — a tactic he has used in his so far unsuccessful bid that began last year to force Maduro from power.But he added in a Twitter video: “The fight for democracy is not suspended.”Brazil’s Bolsonaro, who has previously tried to downplay the virus outbreak, has been tested for the disease, his son Eduardo revealed on Thursday.Bolsonaro’s communications chief, Fabio Wajngarten, tested positive for COVID-19 after a trip to the United States last weekend.Duque also banned gatherings of more than 500 people in the country, which has nine confirmed cases of the coronavirus disease.

Fit again Smith Hogs it at North Hants

first_img ‘Beware the sick golfer’ is the age-old golfing adage and it was never more appropriate when Jordan Smith won the Hampshire Hog, the biggest title of his young career, at North Hants. The England International shot rounds of 69, 67 for a four under par total of 136, finishing a shot clear of English champion Harry Ellis. A week ago, Smith pulled out of an England training get-together after going down with a virus. So his victory was something of a surprise to the Wiltshire 20 year old. “The virus laid me low last week so this win is a bit of a surprise,” he said. “I didn’t play that fantastic, just steady, but I holed a few birdies.” He also eagled the par five 17th in his opening 69, holing from 12 feet, and almost repeated it in the afternoon but his 20-footer for another three left him with a tap-in birdie, one of four ne accumulated before spending over a hour waiting to see if anyone would catch him. Ellis, bidding to become the first Hampshire player to win the title since Justin Rose in 1995, also opened with 69 and was on track until he double-bogeyed the par four 14th. He had the chance to repair the damage and catch Smith with an eagle at 17. But he had to settle for birdie and 68, which left him a shot short. Three players, England internationals Jack Hiluta, Callum Shinkwin and Josh White, all scheduled for this weekend’s match with Spain, and British Boys champion Matthew Fitzpatrick, shared third place on 138. So Smith adds his name to an illustrious honours board that includes former Open and Masters champion Sandy Lyle, Sir Michael Bonallack as well as Rose. “When you see the likes of Justin Rose and Sandy Lyle as previous winners, these players are legends and you aspire to what they have done. If you start by winning events they won you know you are heading in the right direction,” added Smith. Defending champion Callum Shinkwin once again showed his liking for North Hants with a course record 65 in the afternoon to win the Hampshire Salver, with an aggregate of 273 from the Hampshire Hog and the previous day’s Selborne Salver at Blackmoor. Leading final scores: 136 J Smith (Bowood G&CC) 69 67 137 H Ellis (Meon Valley) 69 68 138 J Hiluta (Chelmsford) 69 69, C Shinkwin (Moor Park) 73 65, J White (Chipstead) 71 67, M Fitzpatrick (Hallamshire) 69 69 139 S Robertshawe (Army) 70 69 22 Apr 2013 Fit again Smith Hogs it at North Hants last_img read more
