  • West Java to test those without COVID-19 symptoms as cases rise

    first_imgAs confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) increase in Indonesia, the West Java administration has moved to proactively test those who are suspected of having the virus but do not display symptoms.The West Java Health Laboratory – which is the nation’s referral center for tuberculosis – will conduct the tests in coordination with Padjadjaran University’s Laboratory of Microbiology and Parasitology and the Bandung Institute of Technology’s Laboratory of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil said the laboratories were at “biosafety level two” on Sunday. He added that proactive COVID-19 tests would be prioritized for people under monitoring, identified as those who were possibly carrying the virus but showed no symptoms.“We will prioritize the cluster of paramedics who treated [COVID-19] positive patients and then potentially exposed foreign workers in Karawang. We will also test the families of the patients so we will be able to detect [the virus],” he said. “Hopefully, none of them will test positive.”Ridwan said the administration had purchased the COVID-19 test kits in February from a neighboring country “with a good relations” with Indonesia since well-proven testing kits were not yet obtainable domestically.He said the test kits produced results within five hours, so medical workers would be able to respond swiftly to any cases. As of Sunday, Indonesia had recorded 117 confirmed COVID-19 cases and five deaths from the disease. Eight people have recovered after receiving medical treatment, according to the government.The cases are spread across the country’s provinces, including Jakarta, Yogyakarta, West Java, Central Java, Banten, Bali, North Sulawesi and West Kalimantan.The West Java administration has allocated two waves of funding for coronavirus response from the regional disaster management fund, one of Rp 24 billion (US$1.6 million) and the other of Rp 50 billion.The allocations prioritize health equipment procurement, including self-protection equipment and respiratory aids, which will be distributed to hospitals across the province.“One third of the funds are for purchasing test kits, which will be used [to test] thousands of asymptomatic [people]. When there is an escalation, we can immediately check them,” said Ridwan. (syk)Topics :last_img read more

  • DNO extends 152p bid deadline for Faroe. We’re worth more, Faroe board says

    first_imgOil company DNO has extended the deadline for Faroe Petroleum shareholders to accept its 152 pence a share takeover bid, giving them time until mid-January.DNO said on Thursday it had increased its holding to 30 percent of Faroe’s shares.It said its 152 pence offer for each Faroe share was now a mandatory offer under the Code (Rule 9).The mandatory offer will remain open for acceptance until 1.00 p.m. (London time) on 18 January 2019 (the “Second Closing Date”).Since the initial launch of the offer back in November 2018, Faroe Petroleum’s board has advised the shareholders not to act upon it, deeming the offer opportunistic and one undervaluing Faroe Petroleum.North Sea-focused Faroe on Wednesday, prior to DNO’s mandatory offer announcement, reiterated its stance that the 152p offer was not good enough.It cited an independent expert GCA’s view which updated its analysis to reflect the current oil price environment and latest drilling results including for Brasse. ,According to Faroe, GCA concluded that “the value of Faroe’s oil and gas assets more reflective of current (late December 2018) market oil pricing is in the range of US$879 million – US$1,076 million.”“The Board believes that GCA’s independent valuation further reinforces its view that the Offer is opportunistic and substantially undervalues Faroe,” Faroe said.John Bentley, Non-Executive Chairman of Faroe, commented: “GCA’s independent valuation clearly supports our view that DNO’s Offer substantially undervalues Faroe. Its valuation of Faroe’s oil and gas assets implies a value per share for Faroe in the range of 186p to 225p per share representing a 22%-48% premium respectively to DNO’s Offer price.”Offshore Energy Today Stafflast_img read more
