first_img Facebook Pinterest By Network Indiana – October 23, 2020 4 389 By The White House from Washington, DC – White House Coronavirus Update Briefing, Public Domain, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=89217597 White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator, Dr. Deborah Birx, says it’s all about ’empowerment’ when it comes to the recent spike in coronavirus cases here in Indiana.Friday Dr. Birx joined 93 WIBC to discuss what Americans need to do in order to stop the spread of the virus. Birx says there has been a significant increase of tools and resources we now have that we didn’t have in March.Americans know at this point to wear a mask and wash their hands. Birx says the hard part is getting everyone to do it. She says if we all wear surgical-type masks, then lock downs aren’t necessary.Another element to keeping the spread of the virus to a minimum is consistent testing. As Dr. Birx and her team has discovered after touring the country, she says they learned that weekly testing within universities has truly made a difference in their numbers. The idea behind more testing, is to help those who are asymptomatic from spreading the virus.

Press release: Minister for the Middle East statement following meeting with Syrian Opposition

first_img Media enquiries The UK continues to play a leading role in response to the tragedy in Syria. We have committed nearly £2.5 billion to our humanitarian response to the crisis. I am alarmed that in spite of commitments to de-escalation the regime and its backers continue to bomb and shell opposition areas in eastern Ghouta and Idlib. In recent weeks these regime offensives have killed hundreds of civilians, displaced tens of thousands, and destroyed hospitals and other civilian infrastructure. These attacks must stop. After nearly seven years of conflict and over 400,000 deaths, it is abundantly clear that only a political settlement can bring a durable end to the human suffering and the regional instability the conflict fuels. Along with our international partners, the UK supports the efforts of the UN-mediated Geneva process as we believe this is the best way of reaching a lasting political settlement to end the conflict. We commend the constructive engagement by Nasser Hariri and the Syrian opposition in the latest round of Geneva talks and call on the Syrian regime to likewise engage constructively and agree to direct talks.
