TVJ Midday News: Cruise Ship in Jamaica Isolates Crew Member with High Fever – February 25 2020

good afternoon I am Andrea Chism with
the midday news a special welcome if you’re watching on one spot mediacom the
Health Ministry’s protocols governing cruise ships kicked in this morning
after a mega liner docked in Acharya Saint Anne it was discovered that a crew
member has a high fever officials stole our NewsCenter that the case does not
meet the required standard for the kovat 19 coronavirus but out of an abundance
of caution that person has been isolated and passengers quarantined none of the
passengers will be allowed to disembark in otras or any other Jamaican port the
ship arrived in Jamaica from Miami today and is scheduled to sail to the Cayman
Islands it can hold up to 5,000 386 passengers and a crew of over 1,500
persons in the meantime Cove 819 is taking a toll on the world economy as it
is dangerous to health and by extension your wallet we have details from the CNN
the coronavirus quickly spreading outside of China Italy hit especially
hard confirmed cases rocketing up from 3 to more than 200 within the last week
the virus may settle down into an endemic pattern of transmission into a
seasonal pattern of transmission or could accelerate into a full-blown
global pandemic there are more than 50 confirmed cases in the US but health
officials say that number will probably rise given the high risk environment
that the Diamond Princess cruise ship passengers came from I would not be
surprised if we have additional cases the corona virus is not just a potential
health threat there’s also a financial factor on Monday the Dow dropped more
than a thousand points stock markets worldwide also took a plunge I think
they’re reacting to most the fact that this means a lot of other economies are
going to be under strain and although the corona virus is playing havoc with a
growing number of companies our rebound is likely before the end of the year it
almost certainly God willing depending on the
epidemiology is going to be finite it is going to be something that six months
from now nine months from now will an economic sense be over we’ll be seeing
some recovery in other news a desperate search is underway for a missing
eight-year-old girl from Epsom st. Mary it’s believed the girl was washed away
by water by from water by flood rains on Monday and Giovanni Denis has details

the opposition PNP believes it can do a better job in fixing crime in Jamaica
speaking recently at a workers meeting in east central st. Andrew PNP president
dr. Peter Phillips said the number of violent crimes is evidence that the
country is in a crisis we have details in this report according to the People’s
National Party after February 15 this year murders were up by 6 percent when
compared to the same period in 2019 this despite several states of emergency
declared in almost half the country while speaking on Sunday at a workers
meeting at justiciero Park in st. Andrew president of the party dr. Peter
Phillips stressed that the security measure is not working dr. Philips
argued that even in spaces your security checkpoints are present it is evident
that the SOE s are ineffective police checkpoint and soldier I’m gonna get
down and then careful police can move unless they get it structured to move it
is a waste of the energies of the men women in the police force is policing
but why has the PNP continued to support the measure of the matter we are not
government and the government dr. Philips believes that the PNP could do a
better job at fixing Jamaica’s crime problem if it were in power if we
weren’t on it we would know what to do we have long said that modern policing
is intelligence-led policing you need to fill up your intelligence gathering you
need to deploy a police men and women to the hot spots of violence in the country
you need to go and reach out to the violent criminals that attention and Giovanna Dennis TVJ news and it’s time
for a break here on the midday news but stay with us we have more stories right
after these messages welcome back and we’re continuing the
news president of the Jamaica gasoline Retailers Association J GRA Gregory
Chong has highlighted some of the challenges faced by the members in
implementing safety standards at gas stations that includes resistance from
some motorists he says indiscipline contributes significantly to gas
stations being overrun by taxis and buses which used the properties as
pick-up and drop-off points the J GRA president says some people also converge
freely at gas stations despite the safety issues which arise mr. Chung
explains that it’s a major safety hazard for gas stations speaking yesterday on
radio Jamaica’s beyond the headlines he gave further details of the
challenges it is said and sometime it’s complied with and sometimes it’s met
with resistance and you know I personally and dealers personally can
cannot be on there for court all day so while they may go there and talk to a
few persons most of the reinforcement is left of the staff what they do is that
they use a gas station instead of going to a bus park or into a line or some
kind of formal system they use a gas station to pick up passengers drop off
passengers in other easier quicker method of doing their business convicted
jamaican-born sniper Lee Boyd Malvo has agreed to drop his request for
resentencing that was spending before the US Supreme Court the decision was
made after Virginia Governor Ralph Northam signed legislation yesterday
that creates the possibility of parole for juvenile offenders serving sentences
of 20 years to life Malvo received four life sentences without parole for 3
Virginia slayings commited with John Allen Muhammad during the regional
sniper rampage of October 2002 Malvo was 17 at the time he received six
additional life sentences also without possibility of parole for six killings
in Maryland during the same three-week period in 2002 the bill signed by
Governor Northam would only affect Malibu’s Virginia
sentences over 300 persons living in Montego Bay st. James and neighboring
communities attended an expungement fair in the parish on Friday it was to help
clear criminal records or provide information to those seeking
clarifications on applications more in this report about justice unit and for
lawyers were on location to assist with the application process
persons seeking to remove their criminal records spoke with our news team about
some of the challenges they have faced I tried a good job try to get jobs but
just because of this police record it’s like yeah my thinking you know for you
and I’m this police record is like a nightmare you know I mean you know
without you having a clean when you can’t get a job so I applied for my
realize I had to go to this this and that and this and that I had was to
write a letter to the Transport Authority to say you know what I mean
because of so on so on so on so on so on so on so and so and that’s why I feel to
get a new police record or a clean police record so in a sense yes and I
would like the expansion so that I can get a clean police record in the future
going flour Attorney General Marlin mallalieu Ford revealed who are eligible
to have their records expunged here we’re focusing on those who have been
sentenced either to non custodial sentences or two sentences for less than
five years who have served their time and where a period of five to ten years
have elapsed three to ten in some cases and more importantly are on a better
path they have acknowledged the wrong they have done and you have turned your
lives are on but are still haunted by the criminal record I need a fresh shot
those who have applied will be assessed and processed once found to be eligible
they will then be informed on how to move forward offenses including unlawful
wounding assault occasioning bodily harm
malicious destruction of property possession of and dealing in marijuana
are eligible for expungement offenses such as export of drugs are not eligible
burns more TVJ news and in sports last Thursday TVJ sports aired a story about
the continued decline in the standard of cricket at the high school level and in
the follow up we hear from some stakeholders about how the decline has
affected the local cricketing landscape and we have more from T V J’s Orin
Arthur Brown in 2017 fifty schools participated in the is a rural Eric Ries
helicopter competition in 2019 eight fewer schools took part in the
tournament it’s a trend that has stakeholders concerned including
Trelawny Cricket Association president Chester Anderson has only one school
from that parent currently participates in the head to cook on my board
we have mandated people to go into these schools and try to get them to be more
interested and put some more of the funding that they have towards sports
interpreting vice president of the Jamaica Cricket Association dr. Donovan
Bennett is also concerned about the drop in the standard of high school cricket
but says it’s no fault of the JCA I don’t think you should look at the the
GC for a solution because our real mandate is to promote the game at the
senior level and of course to be involved at a junior level but a
representational level at the level of these is good team playing for Jamaica
dr. Bennett also provided this explanation it’s all about money right
cookies are expensive here number one and be not and even though it’s an
expensive game at that level it still does not generate any income for the
schools right so the schools will gravitate towards sports that generate
income ie check on field and football and this
is what is happening more schools are putting all their resources into track
and field and football for obvious reasons one the popularity and to the
fact that they can make money also to support themselves in the meantime at
least one local club is worried about its own survival
every cloves on possible zompires team has been
suffering from the the weakness of glue I could just know I’ve been thinking I’m
thinking to find out what the best way to get it written I wanna do we must get
more schools playing and further funded from the high school playing we have to
start playing hardball cricket at the primary school level McLeod says clubs
have to be proactive well I think that we’d all sing catching CC we don’t wait
on them to leave the ask we try to get them while they’re at school so we can
assist because you know some schools don’t have shank watches some school is
the easy for them that teaches that that coaches some of them yes there they can
coach but time is a factor I know after these players doing what
they’re doing more than one day or two days a week you have to at the club
level would be a little bit stronger than the school level so when they play
at the school and feel that they are there and they come to the club they
realize that still have a lotta work to do so it’s best to have them who playing
at the club level along with the school in part three and Tuesday we hear the
concern from GC foster college lecturer gives Williams renard abroad for TVJ
sports and that’s the midday news I’m Andrea Chisholm and you join us at seven
for the prime time news package on behalf of the news sports and production
teams good afternoon

Author Since: Mar 11, 2019

  1. Peter Philips…… Nothing new…. Jus talking!!!! talking!!!! Kmt…. It's not a one man job so to me u fail already…….

  2. What Malawo is saying is all nonsense, the Jamaican government is following everything that the United States is doing to their people. It is full time that the Jamaican people should open up their eyes, the kinds of repressive regimes those people is trying to put on the poor people in Jamaica. Just like the days of slavery, because if someone served is time in prison. That should have nothing to do with the person personal life,when you are preventing them from working.
    You are forcing the people them as a government to do more wrong things again, I am only sorry that some of you officials is not suffering from the hands of some of those people. Because you are some wicked kind of people, the same people voted for you.Then you are treating the poor people in Jamaica like wild animals, so the people them should be very careful who they are voting for.

  3. I can't understand why this little child got sick at school and the teacher didnt call her parents to get her???? Heights of negligence.

  4. Nuff a them teacher ya no care a backside mi a tell u no matter if shi a 16 call the parents careless no love them a do it fi the likes nuff teachers in schools all over this country a jus for the money smh God bless the teachers that really loving that will go above and beyond

  5. O boy, I will never understand some adult. First and foremost if I take any one home in my car, I wait until they go inside their home. It’s just the right thing to do..SMH

  6. The teacher should he held responsible for this!!! Why didn't they call the parent to come for the sick child??? This is an outrage!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Poor and shame system of our country to no that any intelligence that person learn to no that is to follow so for low level teacher that put the child at more risk or the principal or the doctor at the school or probably they dont that system in schools yet so poor and shame of government's that have not facilitates all schools in Jamaica with doctors office plus no child can be released on her or him own so parents need to take better actions on they self stop sitting down a wait on a child to walk home by there selfs ,, sit their a get bigand fat some a you women shame of these parents too that not put there selfs in the right position of their lives . a just wish God just let her appear back so hurtful so hard

  8. Why when shooting gwan in Ocho Rios it don’t come over new drive by shooting happen in Ocho Rios last night on it don’t come over new

  9. You only a say you have plan and have plan you no have shit raw mouth. Share the plans weh u have and stop chat frog face


  11. And Peter Bunting did come on TV a bawl bout divine intervention when they were in power. Why these scumbags so hungry for power.😂

  12. so because your not the government you cant help to solve the crime in jamaica,,listen to your speech cause thats exactly what your saying ,old crook.

  13. I don't understand how a teacher could send home a child who is sick why didn't she call the parents to come and get that child

  14. Lol Dr Dr Peter Phillips from my understanding PNP party run Jamaica for over 18 years and honestly from my observation I don't see how they were any better than JLP

  15. PNP can not fix nothing, they can not even fix their party, just talk, crime has been a CANCER ever since. How the PNP is going to fix when they are a part of the problem?? They need to go and find somewhere and sit, they are just power hangry!!

  16. Jamaicans do you think these JDF person didn't get order s from the the prime minister of the country to let him get back control he is the one who gave the order read the Constitution law at up camp head quarters PB


  18. That teacher needs to be fired. This is a disgrace… jamaicans should be ANGRY AND DEMAND THIS TEACHER NEVER WORKS WITH CHILDREN AGAIN!

  19. we are lacking in sense: our mentality are slow, imagine the irresponsible behaviour of that teacher. which the teacher must be held to account.

  20. Jamaica politicians dem fool as’f the virus is spreading rapidly across the world over 36 countries now, all of which has a much better healthcare systems than of ours and they are struggling. The diamond princess cruise ship had proven to be a corona virus hotspot due to the poor ventilation system, the virus travel through air, if that guy turns out positive it’s sad to say but the number of infected persons on that ship would be frightening. I think the government should put a temporary band on cruise ships also. If the virus reach here the greedy Jamaican government aught to be blamed.

  21. The teacher should have called an Adult to come for the child, I think that's neglegence on the teachers part , and to all those schools who are sending home children when parents send them to school, before going home time you all need to stop , when something serious happens to people children what will come out of it. If they are sick, take them to the hospital and call the parents, if they do something wrong put them to sit somewhere in the school and call the parents, enough is enough.

  22. A country with uneducated people can never move forward, if education is important make it more affordable so you can have a safe and successful country. If people had known the real danger of that gas leak no one would get injured.

  23. My concern is… Why can't the PM, the TM and the HM come to the understanding that they were elected to serve the people? And in doing so place a indefinate ban on all Cruse ships from entering our ports until a lid is place on this virus… The average citizen that would be gravely affected by this virus does not pocket anything from tourism… The few craft market people must choose between business decline or health/life.

  24. All Vehicles owner that wants to get red plate register taxis should have GPS on their cars and proper identification for their drivers, this is a safety measure for both passengers and drivers.

  25. The PNP government were there for some 25years or more and didn't fix it this crime problem they asking the Jamaican people to put them back in to do a job they couldn't do..get real

  26. Sounds like she had symptoms of coronovirus i pray that they find her this don't sound right . I hope am wrong but it sound like the symptoms😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

  27. Peter Phillips is not about people life ,its about politics dats all uno fight fa in Jamaica to trick poor people an win to control the country to rob an thief black people labour, uno dam wicked and corrupt politicians all a uno .

  28. It would be down to the policies that the education authorities have in place regarding notification between schools and parents, children under certain age should be accompanied by an adult to and from school, but Jamaica system slack, di government nuh reddi yet.

  29. The teacher should have called the child's parent to collect her. Based on her symptoms it may that she was coming down with meningitis which needs early intervention.

  30. I wonder how that teacher feels right now😢😢😢this hurts me a lot I can feel the mother pain hold strong mummy.oh my I really feel it to my heart for that little girl😧😧😧

  31. The teacher is to be blame after the child complaint , that she is feeling sick ,the teacher responsibility is to take her to the school nurse and take it from there.

  32. Why is it that when one party is in power the other always have the solution to the problem but when is there time they can't find it

  33. That teacher have no sense what so ever. What was she thinking? My condolences to the family of this little girl. May the good lord give this mother to carry on.

  34. Just like how the government bring in the Chinese to develop the island he can ask other countries to come in to help fight the crime.

  35. Politicians take jamaicans for fools. Ppl should start protesting gun legislation and start policing their own neighborhoods. That fix the crime problem.

  36. This is not America. In Jamaica, kids walk to and from school at a earlier age then Americans. I'm 50 plus now an this hasn't changed. Sorry for her lose.

  37. An 8 year old not feeling well. How on earth the school allowed her to leave. The parent should have been called to pick up the child.

  38. Why is it always "if my party was in power we would do this or that" why not work TOGETHER for the greater good of the country to solve the crime problem

  39. Do not let them off the ship. Please send them back to where they are coming from. Mr Holiness we appeal to you and the Jamaica Labour Party for protecting Jamaicans.

  40. The Crime is too much in Jamaica the Government is not doing the right thing too much Corruption stop taking in CRIMINALS from other countries.

  41. Mr.Andrew Holmes you need to do better is the WORSE i have ever see Jamaica with Crime because of no job Stop let Chinese bring their workers the job is for the people of the country a Hungry man is a Angry man

  42. Teacher didn't learn from past mistakes!?!?!

    Suh if this child is neva found who will be held accountable?!?!??!!?

    Jah knuh!

  43. Why are they still talking about the games being kept. I swear these leaders in the world are dumb… Isn't it better to stop all form of travel across the world for a per2to contain the virus and get rid of it permanently

  44. Hakuna what you’re saying don’t even make sense she is a 8 year old even if the teacher called from 8:30 in the morning its still don’t give her the right to sent home this child face the fact they call the parents no one showed up for her so the teacher sent home the child to who??? what is the use of the police station let say school is dismissed call the police explains the situation or take the child to the police station they no way you can sent home a minor by themselves you sound like you’re one of those person who will do the same thing with your child and other child. Wise up protect our youths

  45. I am a teacher of children at age 4 and listen if a child is ill we cannot let that child leave without an adult present…….. Come on teachers come on
    Most of y'all have no children so y'all have no idea as to what love and care is all about for a child

  46. Is the school policy to send a sick child home in the rain with an umbrella to cross a river to home? how long afrer the child left the school was she discovered missing? A sick child in raid to cross a river. THAT TEACHER NEED TO BE CLASSIFIED AS THE FIRST SUSPECT. WHAT DID THE POSTMORTEM SHOW AS THE CAUSE OF DEATH.? REGARDLESS OF WHAT, THE TEACHER IS GUILTY OF ABJECT NEGLIGENCE

  47. I hope they find her alive and well.
    Who send home a sick 8 years old from school without calling the child's parent to come get the child? Oops, why a my asking a rhetorical question , I'm sure the lady on the news says " the teacher gave the sick 8years old a umbrella and send her home" it seems I'm just as retarded has the person who send this sick child home without call the mother to come get her.

    Here i go again repeating myself!

    Before i go i have one to to say to my fellow Jamaicans, its time for us to start loving each as ourselves.

  48. Dr. Peter Phillips will say anything to get his party in power, we have been suffering from this high murder rate under
    Successive PNP and JLP Governments they've both been failing the people of Jamaica, none of them are any better,
    Jamaica need another Independent party, that can help to break up this political monopoly by these two incompetent
    parties, I long for the days when some of the more politically educated Jamaicans can elect some Independent MP's
    into our parliament to hold these two to account.

    Nothing will ever change for the better under PNP or JLP, these politicians go into politics to make a career and to help
    themselves, not to help the people and the country to develop, since Jamaica got it's political independence the country
    has gone backwards in terms of crime and violence, when Jamaica gained independence in 1962, our murder rate was
    3.9 persons per 100,000, back then it was among the lowest in the world,

    in the last 10 years, Jamaica's murder rate is averaging 58 persons per every 100,000, in 2009 it went up to 62 per 100,000
    an astonishing figure of 1,680 murders in a population of just under 3million people, these two parties have failed to protect
    the people, yet they still occupy parliament collecting their big wages. enough is enough, they must be held accountable,
    if we're to see any change for the better.

  49. I think is a lie that they turn them back ,in the 80s the Jamaican government allow a shipload of very nasty people into ochi , no doubt ochi is most AIDS was back then.

  50. That's all, comrade Peter Phillips good far if we were the government Fe put one bag of money in your pocket you don't care about crime all you care about this Jamaican people money for putting on your blasted packet you will never be the prime minister of Jamaica dam lunatic

  51. Teacher waapen to the skool nurse wasnt there u should sent the child n callvher parents to come pick her up cause she's not well…ummm all teacha a babylon dunce…

  52. Take precaution when going out in public. Wear a face mask, glove's, and bring hand sanitizer everywhere you go. Stock up on bottled water, frozen food, dry goods (dried peas beans flower cornmeal rice pasta potatoes etc…), Can & Packaged foods, hygiene products, face mask, rubber gloves, and hand sanitizer. Use disinfectant sprays or disinfectant wipes such as Clorex, Lysol, bleach spray or wipes. You can freeze your vegetables in Ziploc freezer plastic bags.
