Britain's first Paralympic champion Margaret Maughan dies aged 91 Britain’s first Paralympics gold medallist Margaret Maughan has died at the age of 91. Maughan won gold in both archery and swimming at the 1960 Games in Rome, just a year after she was paralysed from the waist down after a car accident in Malawi, and went on to compete in four further Paralympics and win four more medals, including gold in lawn bowls at Arnhem in 1980. In 2012, she was the final torchbearer and lit the flame at the London Paralympics opening ceremony and told the BBC at the time: “I feel very proud to be at the start of all this. From just a team of 70 British people in wheelchairs at the first Games, now there are hundreds from all disabilities.” The Lancashire-born teacher had returned in 1959 from Africa to England for treatment at the Stoke Mandeville hospital in Buckinghamshire where the spinal injury unit founder Ludwig Guttman pioneered the use of sport in therapy.
Dominic Raab insists government will deliver 100,000 coronavirus tests a day, despite series of setbacks Dominic Raab has insisted the government’s commitment to deliver 100,000 coronavirus tests a day within weeks still stands despite a series of setbacks. Officials admitted earlier this week that none of the new antibody tests ordered by the government were sensitive enough to use. Ministers had hoped they would allow experts to test for the presence of the disease in the past, alongside tests that show whether or not someone is currently suffering from Covid-19.

Apple and Google release marks 'watershed moment' for contact-tracing apps Apple and Google have released a software tool that will make it possible for nations to release coronavirus contact-tracing apps that adopt the firms' privacy-centric model. It offers developers access to added Bluetooth functionality to solve a problem existing apps have of iPhones sometimes failing to detect each other. Android and iOS device owners will have to carry out system upgrades. But some countries - including the UK - are pursuing a different approach. "The release of these APIs [application programming interfaces] along with the operating-system updates will be a watershed moment for the development and adoption of proximity-tracing apps," said Marcel Salathé, an epidemiologist at the Swiss research institute EPFL.
UK will have Europe's worst coronavirus death toll, says study World-leading disease data analysts have projected that the UK will become the country worst hit by the coronavirus pandemic in Europe, accounting for more than 40% of total deaths across the continent. The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) in Seattle predicts 66,000 UK deaths from Covid-19 by August, with a peak of nearly 3,000 a day, based on a steep climb in daily deaths early in the outbreak. The analysts also claim discussions over “herd immunity” led to a delay in the UK introducing physical distancing measures, which were brought in from 23 March in England when the coronavirus daily death toll was 54. Portugal, by comparison, had just one confirmed death when distancing measures were imposed. The IHME modelling forecasts that by 4 August the UK will see a total of 66,314 deaths – an average taken from a large estimate range of between 14,572 and 219,211 deaths, indicating the uncertainties around it. The same grim picture applies to intensive care beds.
Student Storage in Ottawa - Just Right Self Storage We are conveniently located for students all across Ottawa. We are easily accessible by several buses and the Bayview O-Train, as well as students at Ottawa University as we are located in the city’s core. Self storage facilities are a great way for students to store their belongings in an ever-changing environment. Many students have collected things that they do not have room for, either in their dorm rooms or the revolving door of apartments that they will occupy, or at their parents’ house. Storing things at mom and dad’s house can be helpful for short periods of time, but often leaves belongings open to be examined and can make personal objects face scrutiny, possible destruction, being packed away in a basement or attic (and further destruction), or refused when the old bedroom is being reused for something else or storage room runs out.
Coronavirus in Africa: Contained or unrecorded? Image copyright Getty Images The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that nearly a quarter of a billion Africans could contract coronavirus in the first year of the pandemic, with between 150,000 and 190,000 of them dying. Africa has had less than 100,000 cases so far, but WHO experts believe the continent will have a prolonged outbreak over a few years - and, aid workers say, the huge focus on containing the virus has led to other health issues being neglected.
