If you test positive on arrival, you may be required to isolate for a period of time. You may even be prevented from returning to the United States, as scheduled. You might consider getting tested before your trip,” the CDC added. For the period of July to August, St. Lucia has welcomed 5,897 travellers through the approved ports of entry, of which 4,413 are visitors. St. Lucia was not the only country to have been issued with the warning by the CDC even as the United States grapples with more than 170,000 deaths and an infection rate of more than five million from the coronavirus. St Lucia has recorded 26 cases of COVID-19, only one of which is active. No deaths have occurred on island. “All measures by the government are geared are ensuring that livelihoods are restored while keeping local communities protected from the virus.” St. Lucia has welcomed the decision by the United States’  Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to remove its coronavirus (COVID-19) travel warning for the island. “CDC recommends that people at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19 talk to their healthcare providers before traveling to St. Lucia. COVID-19 risk in St. Lucia is low. Over the last 28 days, new cases of COVID-19 in St. Lucia decreased or stabilized.” The CDC said that travellers to the island are advised to check with the Office of Foreign Affairs or Ministry of Health of St. Lucia or the US Department of State, Bureau of Consular Affairs, Country Information page for details about entry requirements and restrictions for arriving travellers, such as mandatory testing or quarantine. St. Lucia welcomed its first commercial flight on July 9, putting in place several protocols, including pretesting within seven days of arrival in the destination, mandatory screening on arrival, use of certified taxis and hotels, a 14-day quarantine period for non-bubble countries, the wearing of masks in public and observing physical distancing. Chairman of the National COVID-19 Response Committee and Minister for Tourism, Dominic Fedee said, “it is an honour to see that the strategic approach to responsibly reopening the tourism sector, dedication and sacrifice of the government, frontline workers and the cooperation of the public is topical in international jurisdictions. “We have to keep following our protocols and ensuring that pre-testing is done before visitors arrive in St. Lucia. This takes the support and cooperation of all the stakeholders in the travel industry,” he added. A statement from the St. Lucia Tourism Authority (SLTHA) Tuesday said the island’s “response to the COVID-19 pandemic in ensuring a safe and strategic approach to the reopening of the economy, is receiving rave reviews the world over”. CMC In its previous ‘Level 3: Reconsider Travel’ notice, the CDC urged Americans to avoid non-essential travel to St Lucia due to serious risks to safety and security. The authorities here said that St. Lucia, through the Caribcation brand is working assiduously to introduce its extended stay programme where visitors would be able to work, stay and play, all while enjoying the country’s culture. But in its latest advisory issued on Monday, the CDC placed St. Lucia at “’Watch – Level 1′ saying “COVID-19 risk in St. Lucia is low, new cases are decreasing or stable. Prime Minister Allen Chastanet said that “this is even more validation of our country’s success in the management of COVID-19.last_img read more

Retired UCT academic unravels mystery of Wilde’s wife

first_img11 February 2015For over a century the sudden death of Constance Wilde, wife of the famous author and playwright, Oscar Wilde, has remained a mystery. Now, thanks to medical sleuthing by retired UCT academic and psychiatrist, Dr Ashley Robins, and the Wilde’s grandson, Merlin Holland, the cause of Constance’s death may finally have been discovered.Constance Wilde died suddenly in Genoa, Italy on 7 April 1898, from complications following surgery for the removal of a uterine fibroid. She was 40 years old. These facts, however, describe only a small part of the circumstances that surrounded her death.Constance had fled to Genoa to escape the scandal and spectacular fall from grace of her husband, who had been found guilty in 1895 of the crime of being homosexual. She found herself in a foreign city, with two young sons, having abandoned her career as a children’s author and her role as a women’s rights advocate.Pelvic madnessIn addition, she was plagued by mysterious physical symptoms such as an inability to walk, exhaustion, pain and facial paralysis: symptoms that many doctors had tried – unsuccessfully – to treat.Enter the urbane and seemingly knowledgeable Italian gynaecologist, Luigi Maria Bossi, who claimed that he might provide a cure.Reviewing old documentation, Dr Ashley Robins, a retired UCT academic and psychiatrist, posits that Constance gave her consent to undergo surgery, believing a cure was possible.“Bossi believed that some patients with neurological illness stemmed from women’s reproductive organs (pelvic madness), even though at the time such ideas were already discredited. It is likely that Constance died of paralytic ileus (bowel paralysis) brought about by the operation.”Although at the time Bossi did not suffer any consequences over the botched surgery, he was suspended many years later from his professorship at Genoa University due to professional misconduct, before being fatally shot by the jealous husband of one of his patients.Nine-year illnessAccording to Robins and Holland’s re-examination of the correspondence between Constance and her brother, she first started displaying symptoms almost a decade before her death. Their recently published Lancet study states: “Her nine-year illness was characterised by widespread pains, right leg weakness, tremor of the right arm, profound fatigue, and a left facial paralysis.“For the first seven years the clinical picture was dominated by intermittent acute episodes followed by extended periods of recovery; in the last two years her disability became permanent with gradual deterioration. A likely diagnosis is multiple sclerosis of the relapsing-remitting type that subsequently developed into secondary progressive multiple sclerosis.”This debilitating neurological disorder is thought to be an auto-immune condition leading to a degeneration of myelin, the substance that protects nerve fibers from damage. Although the illness was first described by Jean-Martin Charcot in 1868, physicians of those times may not have associated Constance’s symptoms with this fairly recently discovered disease.What prompted Robins and Holland to re-examine these century-old letters? In Robins’ case this latest discovery has been preceded by a lifelong fascination with Oscar Wilde. “My mother would read me Wilde’s fairytales as a child, but she would never explain the circumstances of his downfall. I became fascinated by him, his wit and larger-than-life personality.”In 2000, the centenary of Wilde’s death, Robins played a part in the discovery that he died from meningitis brought on by chronic middle ear disease, rather than syphilis as had been speculated previously. In 2011 Robins also published a book analysing Wilde’s personality and retrospectively diagnosing him with hysterical personality disorder.Premature deathsMerlin Holland, Oscar and Constance’s grandson, has mentioned in a previous interview that while his mother was alive she had worried that revealing the contents of the letters would encourage people to sensationalise Constance’s life and death. With this new discovery, however, previous ideas that her death had been caused by a fall or syphilis (contracted from Oscar) have all been proven untrue. In Holland’s words: “I rather feel this will put Constance to rest, poor thing.”Almost 120 years after they died, it has now been shown that Oscar and Constance died from completely unrelated medical conditions. Nonetheless their deaths share common, and tragic, elements. Not only did they both die young, and from medical conditions that today might be successfully treated, but in both cases the more indirect causes of their premature demise can be related to the prevailing social attitudes of the day.Prejudice against homosexuality led to Oscar’s incarceration and subsequent physical decline. Constance suffered the consequences of being a woman at a time when the medical fraternity tended to blame neurological conditions on female physiology.“Tragically, if Constance had been alive today, there would be every chance that her condition, while not curable, could have been diagnosed and appropriately managed,” says Robins. “I would like to believe that medicine, the very discipline which failed her then, has also played a part in uncovering the truth behind both their deaths.”This story first appeared in the January 2015 edition of the Research at UCT newsletter.

Confident India set sights on U-19 World Cup final

first_imgTheir confidence at an all time high after the narrow win over arch-rivals Pakistan in the quarter-finals, India would look to carry on the good show against New Zealand in the semi-finals of the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup here on Thursday.Having started on a poor note, losing their lung opener against the West Indies, India managed bring its campaign back on track with back-to-back victories against Zimbabwe and Papua New Guinea before registering a narrow one-wicket win over Pakistan in the last eight round.However, the batting department remains a major cause of concern for the Indian going into the crucial game. Leaving aside the match against Zimbabwe, where the top-order clicked in unison, the Indian batsmen have been inconsistent so far in the tournament.Skipper Unkunt Chand has amassed 104 runs from his four outings in the tournament with 78 against Zimbabwe being his best, while Baba Aprajith, before his match-winning half-century against Pakistan, could manage a meagre 43 from three outings.Opener Prashant Chopra though scored a duck in the last match, has been the most consistent batsman for India with two half-centuries against his name.”Sandeep bowled well and Ravikant and Passi were equally good. Fielding was also top notch,” skipper Chand had said after the match against Pakistan.Like India, New Zealand also managed to snatch a win from the jaws of defeat against in-form West Indies in the quarters.New Zealand’s Ish Sodhi hit 12 off the last three balls, with a boundary off the last delivery, to see his side home by three wickets against the West Indies.advertisementAnd the onus would be on Sodhi to come up with yet another magical knock against the Indians.The Black Caps though will be missing the services of all-rounder Henry Walsh against India after the Wellington-based player had returned home yesterday with an ankle injury. Northern District’s batsman Ben Hyde has joined the team as his replacement.New Zealand captain Will Young, on the eve of the match, said that India would be a tough side to beat.”The victory over the West Indies has given the team a lot of belief ahead of the semi-final and the whole group is excited by what lies in front of us,” Young said.”India is a strong side and it will be a tough match, but at the same time we feel confident that if we play to our potential we can beat them,” he added.Teams (from):India: Unmukt Chand (capt), Akshdeep Nath, Baba Aparajith, Prashant Chopra, Sandipan Das, Harmeet Singh, Akhil Herwadkar, Rush Kalaria, Kamal Passi, Smit Patel (wkt), Ravikant Singh, Sandeep Sharma, Hanuma Vihari, Vikas Mishra, Vijay Zol.New Zealand: Will Young (Capt), Ben Horne, Ben Hyde, Joe Carter, Michael Davidson, Robert O’Donnell, Will Young, Edward Nuttall, Ish Sodhi, Jacob Duffy, Matthew Quinn, Sean Davey, Theo Van Woerkom, Arnie Yugaraja, Connor Neynens, Cameron Fletcher.last_img read more
