Meerut: Four people have reportedly died of high fever in the past 48 hours in the village of Janikhurd in Meerut district, residents told a team from the health service who visited the scene on Monday and Tuesday. However, the team did not agree that all of the deaths were due to fever, and the department ordered an investigation into the matter.
The report of fever-related deaths has surfaced as Meerut sees an upsurge in dengue cases, which rose to 231 with 26 new cases reported on Tuesday.
Villagers claimed that Rajkumar, Binny, Bhagmal and Subhash died of fever in the past 48 hours while Omveer died four days ago. They were all suffering from fever. Villagers also said many people in the area had fever.
However, Dr Ashok Taliyan, Divisional Surveillance Officer, said: “One person who suffered from fever was a teenager. His rapid test for dengue was positive but the ELISA test was not performed. We call his death death from fever. Apart from that, two people died from prolonged illness and one from a heart attack. ”
Chief Medical Officer (CMO) Dr Akhilesh Mohan told TOI that the villagers told the health service team that all were suffering from fever.
“But we learned that other causes were also involved. We have set up an investigation to find out the exact cause of death. A medical camp is set up here for a voluntary health check-up for all, ”said the CMO.
Health department officials said a door-to-door operation was also underway in the city to detect the build-up of standing water. So far, 18 advisories had been issued to people in various areas in whose homes larvae and standing water had been found.
Mohan urged people to take all necessary precautions and take measures to prevent the build-up of standing water in order to combat the vector-borne disease.
“Even after leading awareness campaigns and urging people to take precautions, larvae are still found in homes. I urge people to maintain a clean environment,” he added.

The Lewiston Family Rink will return to Academy Park this winter, just in time for the holidays.

The village trustees approved a request from their counterparts in the town of Lewiston at the monthly town hall meeting on Monday. They did so on two conditions: that the rink materials be removed in a timely manner after the season and that a more detailed plan be presented for the years of operation to come.

Although members of the village board spoke favorably of the ice rink, they also expressed unhappiness with its impact on the Academy Park grounds, namely that it produces large pockets of water and turns grass into mud, which takes weeks to repair.

“I love the ice rink. … But our problem in the past – if we go ahead with this – is that we have to have a commitment, ”Deputy Mayor Vic Eydt said. “We get so much feedback from people after you shut it down, and then it sits there for about two, three months. People say, “What’s going on? How is it that he’s still here? And then we have to take care of it (repair the soil) in the spring. “

Lewiston Town Parks and Recreation Director Mike Dashineau said the last rink remained in the park in February – but he noted: “Preparatory work is taking a little longer.”

The ice rink was last used in 2019. It was not expected to return to the village, let alone the park of the Academy.

“We took it out of our budget last year,” said Mayor Anne Welch. She added: “Obviously we didn’t think you were coming back this year.”

In fact, Welch said Department of Public Works Superintendent Larry Wills plans to remove the Portage-side access road from Academy Park after the Fishing Festival. She explained that the trail turns into a pseudo dam, causing more ground flooding.

This road will remain, for the moment, with the resumption of ice rink operations.

Dashineau said: “We weren’t really sure we had this project at all. It was… a surprise last week when the city asked me to come and try to get your permission here to do so. “

He said the rink itself is self-contained and the water comes out directly into the adjoining drainage. On the contrary, Dashineau noted, it is the people who enter and leave the heated tent – but especially Mother Nature – who have an impact on the grounds of the park. Snow boils grass and icing delays the movement of equipment.

If rink activities continue in Academy Park beyond this year, Administrator Nick Conde noted that the preferred location is South Ninth and Cayuga Streets – “the southeast corner, where the Boy Scouts manage their (Christmas) trees “. This would allow larger mechanical components to be placed on concrete parking spaces.

For 2021, however, “the problem we have with that is the timing,” Dashineau said. “We have an infrastructure that goes to the original site”, which was between the bleachers (since demolished) and the bandshell (since moved). This is where the electrical and water connections exist. “Without the infrastructure, you’re looking to invest more money, more time, more effort to get to a new location.

“We’re not opposed to a new location for the long haul – I think the city made it perfectly clear that we were guests there; wherever you tell us to go long term, we are willing to work with you, should you choose to do the rink.

For now, Dashineau said: “Electricity and water here are essential.”

Deal Realty owner Tom Deal, who led the rink’s fundraising and promotional efforts, reiterated Dashineau’s points.

“We would just like to put it back in place just for ease of use; to put it where it was, ”he said. “Then next year we can look to move it. If that’s where you prefer it, we’ll definitely move it to where it needs to be.

“Just with time and putting everything together, we think it’s the easiest to get through this winter. Next winter, we can move forward.

With the bleachers gone and the bandshell moved, Eydt said he expected it to be easier to move rink materials inside and outside the park. Wills agreed. “They have more space to work,” he said.

Administrators said their long-term goal is to install a permanent concrete slab, pavilion or playground in Academy Park that could accommodate both rink operations and weather-related social events and gatherings. hot.

The Lewiston Family Ice Rink is scheduled to open on November 19.

Francis-Xavier shares his life story as Village of Hope celebrates 25th anniversary https://villageunderforest.com/francis-xavier-shares-his-life-story-as-village-of-hope-celebrates-25th-anniversary/ https://villageunderforest.com/francis-xavier-shares-his-life-story-as-village-of-hope-celebrates-25th-anniversary/#respond Tue, 21 Sep 2021 02:39:39 +0000 https://villageunderforest.com/francis-xavier-shares-his-life-story-as-village-of-hope-celebrates-25th-anniversary/ From street child to politician, this is the story of the deputy for Madina, Francis-Xavier Sosu, who was part of the lot that was served many years ago at the Village of Hope.

From street child to politician, this is the story of the deputy for Madina, Francis-Xavier Sosu, who was part of the lot that was served many years ago at the Village of Hope.

Mr. Sosu lost his parents at an early age and was left to himself and his siblings.

In an interview with JoyNews, he revealed that he had to spend most nights sleeping in kiosks at Malam Atta market.

“My mother was a slave because she was what we call a ‘vodushi’ or a ‘trokoshi’. As a teenager, she escaped from the voodoo shrine and married my father and the two of them gave birth to six of us. I was the third born, I just had to fight to get there. I used to sleep at Malam Atta market, would go to sleep there and always go to school the next day.

The Village of Hope was Francis Xavier’s savior when they bore the full cost of his education after years of struggle.

“The village of hope has arrived in high school. In high school, apart from the first entrance fee I paid, I was unable to pay any tuition fees for the three years I spent there. So they gave me a full scholarship to go to school.

The Village of Hope has been home to many abandoned, homeless and vulnerable children since its creation in 1996.

For many years, he has provided these children with a roof over their heads, a quality education and renewed hope for a better future.

During the organization’s 25th anniversary celebration on Saturday, many people, like Mr. Sosu, shared their stories to encourage the children who are still at the center.

Solomon Obiri Yeboah was one of them. Today, he is the only craniofacial surgeon in all of West Africa. He shared his story in an interview with JoyNews.

“It all started in 1997, when my mother passed away. At the time, I was in second year of medicine and when that happened I had to take care of all my sisters and take care of myself too, so it was actually a struggle.

And because of that, I failed and was repeated during this course. Life was still very difficult for me at that time and in my third year I was repeated again. The Village of Hope paid for my tuition from 2001 until I finished medical school.

The organization’s group general manager Fred Asare explained the vision of the Village of Hope.

“Our vision is to provide a world-class institution that provides the best care to those in need, especially children.”
