The Jakartans were again hit by huge floods, bringing the count to four major floods in less than two months.

Heavy downpours from Monday to Tuesday morning flooded several regions of Jakarta. Homes, office buildings, schools and hospitals were flooded. Not even the presidential palace has escaped.

A total of 3,565 residents were displaced and distributed among 40 evacuation points. The state-owned electricity company PLN was forced to turn off electricity in flood-affected areas for safety reasons.

Forty-one roads in the Jakarta area were flooded. A motorcyclist died in Jl. Gajah Mada, central Jakarta, when the driver hit a hole obscured by flood water and was thrown from his vehicle.

In Cakung, East Jakarta, dozens of residents demonstrated in front of the AEON shopping center in Jakarta Garden City (JGC). They blamed the building for causing floods in their neighborhood. The demonstration led to the destruction of a number of structures in the mall.

The circumstances raise concerns about the seriousness of the city government’s flood mitigation policy.

It is hard to believe that the city administration is serious about mitigating floods when its budget allocation for 2020 for this purpose amounts to only 1.1 percent of the total Rp 87.9 trillion (6.4 billion dollars).

Where shouldn’t I be?

The crisis team urges citizens to avoid visits to community facilities such as hospitals and care facilities. In addition, emergency numbers 110 and 112 should not be blocked unnecessarily.

What to do if you experience symptoms of coronavirus?

“People who are currently suffering from flu-like symptoms are asked to contact their family doctor or emergency doctor’s office first by phone to clarify how to proceed,” says the Heinsberg district.

Those returning from areas where Covid-19 cases occur and develop fever, cough or shortness of breath within 14 days after the return should avoid unnecessary contacts, stay at home if possible, keep distance from other people when coughing and sneezing, regularly and wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water and, after registering by telephone, refer to the travel region and see a doctor.

How can I protect myself?

The recommended protective measures are basically the same as in every flu season. Specifically: One should cough and sneeze in the crook of the arm and not in the fist or palm. If someone else is coughing or sneezing, it is best to keep one or two meters away.

In everyday life, people do not have to constantly rub their hands with a disinfectant, but they should be washed regularly and thoroughly with soap. And even if it sounds banal at first: You shouldn’t touch your face as much as possible.

There is still no vaccine and there will be no vaccine before the end of the year, says the head of the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), Lothar Wieler. Those who are vaccinated against the flu, however, help to relieve the burden on the healthcare system. And older people can get vaccinated against pneumococci.

Where can I find current information?

The Robert Koch Institute and the Federal Center for Health Education have set up websites. Of the World Health Organization WHO there are tips in English. The health insurance company Barmer has also set up a free hotline (0800/84 84 111) for questions. It can be reached around the clock.

How big is the risk of infection in Germany?

The Robert Koch Institute continuously records the situation and assesses the risk to the population. According to the institute, there is currently no evidence that the viruses are still in circulation. Federal Minister of Health Jens Spahn said on Monday in Berlin, however, that one must expect that the disease could spread to Germany.

In addition to the two current cases from NRW and Baden-Württemberg, only a few confirmed cases of infection have occurred in Germany. They concerned a company in Bavaria or people who had been flown out of Wuhan in China in early February 2020, where there are most cases of Covid-19 worldwide. Almost all of these patients have already been discharged from the hospital in good health. (Dpa / mb)


Mud fight around Ash Wednesday

Vienna / Ried. If Heinz-Christian Strache and the FPÖ split up, who will have the Ash Wednesday speech? The former party friends of these days are bickering over this question – today there is a showdown.

Strache wants to provoke his ex-party and, like every year, delivers his Ash Wednesday speech. This time, however, at an event of the blue demerger DAÖ in the Prater Alm in Vienna. And just at the same time as his successor Norbert Hofer, who will take the stage at 8.15 p.m. 260 kilometers further on the Ash Wednesday of the FPÖ in Ried.

Political comeback. Strache plans to steal the show from the FPÖ: reportedly he will announce his appearance in the Vienna election on Ash Wednesday.

Both sides are already busy in advance: DAÖ boss Karl Baron explains on oe24.TV that the FPÖ event is “a plagiarism”. Strache is the Ash Wednesday original – that’s why, according to Baron, the DAÖ event in the Prater Alm (for 20 euros there are two drinks and a herring feast in addition to the speech) would also be sold out, while the FPÖ would not be able to get their tickets.

Hofer does not want to mention Strache’s small party

Meanwhile, Hofer complains about Strache’s new party: “This is not a split, not even a surface erosion.” He did not even want to mention the mini-party in his speech today. It remains to be seen if he can keep it up.

Humorless. By the way, the FPÖ does not tolerate jokes about Ash Wednesday: When the ÖSTERREICH editor Wolfgang Fellner jokes whether the FPÖ is celebrating the festival in the “Adolf Hitler Hall” in Ried (it is the Jahnturnhalle), the FPÖ responds with one Legal action.

A procedure by the Orlando Police in September last year, but only known until now, showed how a six-year-old girl was handcuffed with plastic clamps and led to a patrol. The video is causing outrage across the country.

The video shows two policemen entering an office of a school where the youngest, Kaia Rolle, was sitting listening to a school employee reading a story.

– “What are those for?” Asks the girl to the police.

– “They are for you,” Officer Dennis Turner told him about the ties, before another officer tightened them around his wrists. Kaia started to cry.

– “No … no, don’t put the handcuffs on me!”, The girl shouted, according to the video that several media outlets shared, such as the Sun sentinel Monday night.

The arrests of the girl and another 6-year-old boy at Lucious & Emma Nixon Academy in September attracted national headlines and widespread conviction, which led to the dismissal of the officer.

– “Help me, help me, please!” The youngest cries in the middle of the cry. Police officers continued with the arrest. Orlando school employees just watched in silence.

After boarding little Kaia in a police van to take her to the Child Assessment Center, Officer Turner returned to the school office and spoke with the administrators, who were worried about Kaia.

No … no, don’t put the handcuffs on me!

Record for the young

According to the newspaper version Sun sentinel, the policeman told them that he had arrested 6,000 people in his career; The youngest, until that moment, was 7 years old. When school employees told him that Kaia was 6 years old, not 8 as he thought, he didn’t seem worried.

Now she has broken the record“said the officer.

Kaia, a first-grade student at the school, had a tantrum earlier on the day she had kicked and beaten three school employees, which led to her arrest for a misdemeanor, according to her police report. However, when Turner and another officer approached Kaia to stop her, handcuff her and arrest her, the girl had calmed down, the video shows.

The school employee who had been reading told Kaia that she had to go with the officers and that her grandmother would pick her up later.

While walking with the officer to the car, Kaia continued to cry: “I don’t want to go in a police car. “

The second officer, who has not been identified, replied: “Do not you want? … You have to.”

When the policeman returns to the patrol car, the girl says: “Please give me a second chance,” still crying.

Turner then returned to the school office, reminding an employee that he would need a statement from her and said he would probably receive a subpoena. The woman agreed, although she said she was upset.

The arrest report that Turner completed said that a Beverly Stoute school staff member had requested to press charges against Kaia, something the school later denied.

The video does not show any staff member trying to stop the arrest, although obviously several are restless.

– “Are restrictions necessary?” asked a school employee.

– “Yes,” Turner said. Sun sentinel.

Then, he added: “If she were bigger, she would have been wearing regular wives“.

The authorities have said that Turner also arrested a 6-year-old boy at Nixon Academy on the same day. that Kaia for misdemeanors in an unrelated incident. However, the child’s arrest was stopped by the superiors before the child went through the entire arrest process. Details about the child’s arrest have not been made public.

The next day, prosecutors dropped the charge against Kaia.

Officials of Orlando Police Department has said Turner violated the agency’s policy on arresting children under 12, which requires officers to obtain the approval of a supervisor, something Turner did not do. However, his decision was not illegal since Florida currently does not have a minimum age for arrest, says the Sun sentinel.

It should be from 12 years old

Meralyn Kirkland, Kaia’s grandmother, said she hopes that when people see the images of her granddaughter’s arrest, they will support a proposal to change that law by reaching 12 years of minimum age for arrest.

She said she would also like to see school resource officers receive more training and preparation, especially for working with young children.

“I knew what they did was wrong, but I never knew I was asking for help,” Kirkland said in an interview Monday night about the video. “I saw her break.”

Kirkland said that body camera images still bother her, especially when Turner talks “cruelly” about arresting children.

“Are you talking about traumatizing a 6 and 7 year old boy, and that’s a boast for you?” She said. “These are babies.”

Kirkland said that his granddaughter had sleep apnea, what could cause him to act badly in school, a condition that Kirkland had repeatedly worked with the school to handle.
