US Navy hospital ships brace for coronavirus response

first_img View post tag: coronavirus Share this article View post tag: hospital ships View post tag: US Navycenter_img Two US Navy hospital ships will be part of the Defense Department’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, the Pentagon’s chief spokesman said.The USNS Comfort and USNS Mercy are being prepared for deployment “as needed to assist potentially overwhelmed counties with acute patient care,” Jonathan Rath Hoffman, assistant to the defense secretary for public affairs, said during a news conference at the Pentagon on March 18.The Comfort is now in Norfolk, Virginia, for maintenance, and the US Navy has been asked to expedite that, Hoffman said, adding that it may take “a little while” for that ship to be ready to go. It will go to New York when its maintenance is complete.The Mercy is on the West Coast and is ready to go in “days, not weeks,” he said, and where it will go will be determined when it’s ready to sail.Both ships face issues with manning, however. Air Force Brig. Gen. Paul Friedrichs, the Joint Staff surgeon, said the ships would likely be manned with typical staffs of personnel trained for combat casualty care, rather than for dealing with a contagious disease like the coronavirus.“Our understanding is that the intent is the ships will be used to take non-coronavirus patients, which is what our staffs are best assigned and organized to do,” he said.Defense Secretary Dr. Mark T. Esper suggested yesterday that one role for military medical professionals in regard to coronavirus response would be to take non-coronavirus patient care off of the hands of civilian hospital staffs so that those staffs could instead deal with coronavirus patients. Military medical personnel, and military medical facilities are geared more toward trauma care than dealing with contagious patients, he explained.The Defense Department has also put a number of active duty medical units on alert. That includes different types of units.Altogether, enough units have been put on alert to provide 1,000 beds, a number that doesn’t include those on the navy’s hospital ships.DOD has a variety of deployable medical units it could draw on to provide those 1,000 beds, Friedrichs added, including Air Force Expeditionary Medical System units that can be transported rapidly on aircraft; the Army’s much larger Combat Support Hospitals, which can also be deployed by air or over the ground; Army field hospitals; and Navy Expeditionary Medical Facilities.

Postgrad Marks

first_imgOxford postgraduates will soon find themselves scouted by exam boards to mark A-level and GCSE scripts matter of months after sitting their own finals, and just a few years after taking their own A-level exams. Last year’s pilot scheme, which saw Edexcel employ 16 postgraduates as examiners, was so successful that the Education Secretary, Charles Clarke, has approved the wider use of postgraduates this summer. Professional examiners have expressed disappointment at the widespread use of postgraduate students, with no experience of either teaching or marking. Edexcel’s response was “We will use experienced examiners first,” although the board told Cherwell it expected employ around 110 postgraduates this year. The other exam boards are yet to confirm whether they will be using postgraduates this summer, although it seems likely that most will be forced to use them in the future. The Joint Council for General Qualifications, which represents exam boards in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, said that the postgraduates performed “above standard.” Spokesman George Turnbull said, “The important thing is that people are appropriately qualified and able to keep to a mark scheme and mark on time to an appropriate standard.” The task of achieving this balance ought to be a familiar one to most Oxford students, but no Oxford postgraduate has so far applied for job as marker. Yet the exam boards are facing more scripts this year than ever before, so those wishing to earn some quick cash after leaving university are likely to find them extremely receptive.ARCHIVE: 4th week TT 2003last_img read more

Singles: Sophe Ellis-Bexter, Mixed-up World

first_imgSophie Ellis-BextorMixed up WorldOut now The cover of Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s new single features bright primary colours and lettering that smacks of the over-enthusiastic eighties revival that’s been doing the rounds lately. That would be bad enough on its own. However, start listening to the track itself, and what you get is a fairly nondescript song that wouldn’t be out of place on her last album, overlaid with synthesizer stabbings and vocal sampling that screams ‘Human League rip-off’. Still, this is not necessarily a bad thing; Mixed Up World is the perfect song for dancing around one’s room in pants and hair rollers. If that is your sort of thing, buy this record. If not, save your money. That said, the B-side features the talents of ex-Suede man Bernard Butler, and is really rather good. Tell yourself that’s why you’re spending your £1.99.ARCHIVE: 1st Week MT2003last_img read more
