New research says football players at risk of coronavirus spread to lungs

first_imgResearch from Germany and Italy suggests that footballers and other athletes face a particular risk of the coronavirus infecting their lungs, raising major questions over attempts to restart professional soccer.The research, produced by Italian immunologists and lung specialists based at institutes in Berlin, Rome and Verona, suggests that due to strenuous exercise, elite athletes are more likely to inhale virus particles and direct them to the lower areas of the lung.COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, can cause lung damage and complications such as pneumonia and, in severe cases, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).The preprint paper , which has yet to be peer-reviewed, also suggests that athletes who are asymptomatic could make their condition worse by infecting their lungs during strenuous exertion.Soccer has ground to a halt in all major leagues in Europe and none have yet to resume. European soccer’s governing body UEFA has set a May 25 deadline for leagues to outline their plans to re-start.Leagues, governing bodies and clubs, however, have said they will only return when play is safe and that they will take medical advice.In their paper: “The First, Comprehensive Immunological Model of COVID-19”, Paolo Matricardi, Roberto Dal Negro and Roberto Nisini raise questions over the safety of playing while the virus remains at large.“The pattern of breathing during strenuous exercise changes dramatically by a tremendous increase of ventilation (i.e.: inspiratory and expiratory volumes of air), and of alveolar ventilation in particular,” the authors state.“Professional athletes (are) particularly exposed (much more than individuals of common population) due to their frequent practice of extreme and long-lasting exercise.”The researchers state that the “ideal lungs” of athletes, while helpful in normal conditions, significantly favour the deep inhalation of infectious agents.“Even the SARS-CoV-2 can then spread more easily to the deepest areas of the lungs during strenuous exercise, and there start its aggressive action,” they said.Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) is the name given to the 2019 novel coronavirus. COVID-19 is the name given to the disease associated with the virus.“Not by chance, a great proportion of professional football players claimed the occurrence of fever, dry cough and malaise (and dyspnea in some cases) immediately after, or a few hours following their last official match,” note the authors.ASYMPTOMATIC ATHLETESAdding to the dangers, the research says that players who have the virus but do not show symptoms, could make their condition worse by allowing the virus to move from their upper to lower airways.Asymptomatic but infected athletes could exhale or eliminate aerosolised particles that may contain viruses which are then re-inhaled.“These droplets or aerosol might be re-inhaled and facilitate the spread of the virus from the upper to the lower airways,” the paper states.The authors also look at the risk of the virus being transmitted during a game.“In sports where many athletes are in close contact, such as team sports or marathons, the same particles have high chances to be inhaled by other athletes, facilitating viral transmission.“To emphasize that strenuous exercise induces a much more frequent spitting of secretions and this can further contribute to the environmental SARS-CoV-2 spreading, particularly if the distancing recommendations are not strictly followed.”A separate new study from Aarhus University, in Denmark, looking at how much exposure players would have to a single infected player on the field, showed that, on average, a player is positioned within an ‘exposure zone’ for one minute and 28 seconds during a match.On Tuesday, the World Players Association, which represents some 85,000 athletes from different sports in over 60 countries, said competitors should not be rushed back to action.“At the moment there is a lot of pressure from the leagues on all continents to resume,” WPA Executive Director Brendan Schwab told Reuters in an interview.“The players can only agree to that (return) if they know that their interests will be protected. ”Soccer’s global players’ union FIFPro has also urged caution. “We need guidance and protocols on how to return in a healthy and safe manner. Football is a contact sport and we feel very high protection standards are required,” said FIFPro secretary general Jonas Baer-Hoffmann.last_img read more

FISHERMEN OPPOSE BARMY EU FISH-DUMPING LAWS

first_imgDONEGAL fishermen are opposing barmy new EU laws aimed at banning the practice of throwing fish they can’t sell back overboard.They say they have no choice in the matter…and the EU fails to understand anything about the industry, particularly off the Donegal coast, where fishermen inevitably net species they don’t want and then return them to the sea.The Federation of Irish Fishermen has welcomed the publication by the country’s Marine Institute (MI) and Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM) of the “Atlas of Demersal Discarding,” described as an atlas of discarding profiles by the Irish demersal fleet with a “toolbox” of mitigation measures. FIF say the document clearly identifies the complex nature of discarding and provides a range of workable and stock specific potential solutions rather the “simplistic and populist” approach adopted by barmy EU Fisheries  Commissioner Damanaki.FIF Chairman Seán O’Donoghue said:  “This atlas is a positive step by Ireland in addressing in a meaningful way the extent of  discarding in certain demersal fisheries and in putting forward a range of options for reducing discards. Discards must be tackled with a view to their reduction to the lowest practicable level on an EU-wide platform – not just by Ireland.”FIF has “trenchantly” expressed the view that  Commissioner Damanaki’s stated objective for the future Common Fisheries Policy of banning discards and forcing fishermen to land fish which has no prospect of sale –  which would then have to be transported great distances to be processed as fishmeal –  is totally unacceptable, uneconomic and most importantly will not contribute to the sustainable exploitation of stocks.“The Commissioner’s approach demonstrates only a superficial and PR-driven approach to the issue. The EU measures taken must of course address conservation issues but also must be practical and allow the fishing fleets operate in an economic manner,” they say. A key component of the Atlas, say FIF, is the substantial treatment given to modifications to fishing gears and other measures to reduce discards. Irish fishermen already have taken a “leading role” in promoting such measures:For FIF say seasonal closures for cod fisheries off the North coast (Greencastle Box) and off the South-east coast (Celtic Sea Box), promoted and supported by the Irish industry are proving highly beneficial with a resultant major improvement in Celtic Sea cod stocks for example and whose value is accepted scientifically at EU level.© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights Reserved.The copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldaily Follow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comFISHERMEN OPPOSE BARMY EU FISH-DUMPING LAWS was last modified: November 8th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:barmy EU lawsdonegalfishermenlast_img read more

It’s normal.“We need to stay calm and also keep improving things. Today we got one step ahead by being together and being strong defensively. But we lost because we were playing a very strong team in a good moment.” Arsenal have reportedly made contact with Luis Enrique over the possibility of replacing under-fire boss Unai Emery.Red-hot Jaime Vardy piled the pressure on the former Sevilla boss as the Leicester striker continued to haunt the Gunners. AFP or licensors Emery has led the Gunners to just 2 wins from their last 10 games 4 4 4center_img The forward scored his ninth goal in nine starts against the Gunners to inspire the Foxes to a 2-0 win and into second in the Premier League on Saturday night.Vardy, the top flight’s 11-goal leading scorer, also set up James Maddison’s clincher as Emery’s side slumped to a limp defeat at the King Power Stadium.Alexandre Lacazette wasted Arsenal’s best chance and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had a goal disallowed but the visitors were poor.The Gunners, winless in the Premier League for over a month, slipped eight points behind the top four with Emery’s position under increasing scrutiny. Getty Images – Getty Enrique is a proven winner in the dug out after a successful career as a player Getty Images – Getty Luis Enrique has been approached by Arsenal, according to reports Reports in Spain suggest his time at the Emirates is up, with Enrique the frontrunner to take over in north London.Spanish media outlet El Confidencial claim Arsenal’s head of football Raul Sanllehi is already sounding out potential candidates to take over.And they claim he has been in touch in Enrique, who has been out of work since leaving his role as national boss for personal reasons in June just months before his daughter sadly passed away.Despite winning just two games from their last 10, Emery is adamant his squad are improving. “For me, as a coach, it’s about continuing stronger and improving with our players,” he said.“I am speaking with the club to stay calm and to stay patient to improve and recover some confidence with some circumstances.“We are receiving criticism but I know that’s my job. I’ve had lots of moments like that but I’ve recovered by working to get confidence, being together with the club and players.“I accept all (of the criticism).
