COVID-19: Jokowi to oversee construction of Galang Island quarantine facility

first_img“It’s not merely a hospital because we will use the health facility to observe and quarantine people with infectious diseases. For now, we are facing COVID-19,” Achmad told The Jakarta Post on Thursday.He added that the government would provide 340 beds during the first phase of construction, which is slated to be completed by late March. The facility would be equipped with a total of 1,000 beds.“We have employed 1,000 workers, who are assigned to work overtime until 10 p.m. every day so we can achieve the target,” Achmad went on to say.Read also: Residents now approve of construction of COVID-19 hospital in Batam, officials claim President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo is scheduled to visit Galang Island in Batam, Riau Islands, to oversee the construction of a health facility specializing in treating COVID-19 patients.Public Works and Housing Ministry expert staff member Achmad Gani Ghazali Akman said the President would check on the construction progress of the facility, which will be named the Transmitted Disease Quarantine and Observation Facility. Some construction materials had been prepared at Hang Nadim International Airport in Batam on Thursday, while the rest are still being transported to the city.Fabiyas, one of the construction project’s field supervisors, said President Jokowi was expected to visit the island on Saturday, as workers started to assemble the materials into modular buildings.“We are worried our work will be delayed because the vessel carrying the materials has been unable to dock at Batu Ampar Port because of a queue,” he said. “We have already reported this issue to our leaders in Jakarta.”Achmad, however, denied this claim. “From what I understand, the ship has yet to arrive in Batam,” he said.Batam Customs Office head Susila Brata was not immediately available for comment.

Health from Unlikely Sources: Poison and Scum

first_img“Everything in moderation,” health professionals remind us during the holidays.  Some things, however, none of us would have wanted at all – till scientists found there was treasure in them.    Botulinum toxin (botox), for instance, is one of the deadliest of biological poisons, but by now everyone knows it is being put to good use in cosmetic surgery.  A news release on EurekAlert announced that botox is useful for more than just “ironing wrinkles.”  In addition to treating excessive sweating or reducing skin wrinkles, “it is also a highly effective natural substance that normalizes muscle activity and can be used to reduce pain and itch.”  Doctors keep finding new uses for botox at both ends of the digestive tract.    Another article on EurekAlert announced a promising substance in “pond scum” that might lead to a treatment for Alzheimer’s disease.  A substance in Nostoc, a cyanobacterium, shows potent activity as a cholinesterase inhibitor.  If so, it might help slow the degradation of mental and memory functions in those suffering from the degenerative disease.Science should not only help us understand the natural world, but find ways to improve the human condition.  Sir Francis Bacon echoed Jesus’ teaching that a tree is known by its fruit.  A good science will produce good fruit: in the case of science, increased health and prosperity for humans in ways that improve the environment (compare with the fruit of Darwinism: see 11/30/2005).  We should look at the world like a treasure hunt, the way George Washington Carver did.  Things that seem dangerous, ugly or boring sometimes prove to contain hidden treasures.    These two stories owe nothing to Darwin.  Evolutionists would have us believe that everything is out for itself, trying to propagate its own genes at the expense of its neighbors.  Darwinism sees a world of fierce competition, with cooperation only useful occasionally, but with selfishness as the highest good.  Creationism sees a biosphere made for man and the other organisms.  Design-based science could scour the world for cures while adding to the store of human natural knowledge.  Design science sans Darwinism has the intellectual foundation to usher in a new scientific revolution.(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
