The last death was reported on Aug. 5.“This is a good start to the week and we’re moving in the right direction,” said Pasadena spokeswoman Lisa Derderian. “We hope to continue this trend.”Huntington Hospital reported treating 34 COVID-19 patients on Monday, while 19 tests were pending.Meanwhile, Los Angeles County Department of Public Health officials cited recent data as “signs of the spread of COVID-19 slowing in key indicators, including daily hospitalizations and deaths,” the agency said in a written statement.County health officials announced 1,198 new coronavirus infections and 13 new deaths on Tuesday.“Daily hospitalization numbers have decreased by 45 percent from the peak of over 2,200 in mid-July,” according to the statement.Just over 1,200 people were hospitalized with COVID-19 in the county on Tuesday, with 32 percent of them being treated in intensive care units.The rate of new infections also appeared to be slowing, officials said.“In mid- to late-July, the daily reported number of new cases was around 3,200 cases per day,” the statement said. “As of Aug. 22, the seven-day average was 1,400 daily reported new cases.”Since the onset of the pandemic, L.A. County has recorded a total of 232,893 infections and 5,558 deaths.The county’s positivity remained at 10 percent overall, with more than 2.19 million tests administered, officials said. But the positivity rate over the past week in the county has been between 5 percent and 6 percent.L.A. County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer said things were moving in the right direction, but it remained vital to keep up the successful strategies of social distancing, face coverings, and frequent handwashing.“Thankfully, the work we have all done as a community and the sacrifices we are making are working. If we can maintain this lower rate of transmission, it means that we could begin to think about schools, more businesses reopening or, someday, moving their operations back indoors. I know this has been an extraordinarily difficult time, but we must all take our roles seriously and be diligent. It is everyone’s goal to get to a place of safer reopening,” she said.“But community transmission rates must continue to decrease if we are to get to this place — including where schools can reopen in a way that is safer for students, teachers, and staff members,” Ferrer said.The California Department of Public Health announced 4,946 new COVID-19 infections and 18 news deaths, bringing the state’s totals to 668,615 infections and 12,152 deaths.The state’s seven-day positivity rate had fallen to 5.6 percent, health officials said.As of Monday, Los Angeles County accounted for 35 percent of California COVID-19 infections and 46 percent of the state’s fatalities.

Jeremie Aliadiere blasts Arsenal for giving Mikel Arteta ‘no option’ but to sell Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

first_img Comment Jeremie Aliadiere says Arsenal have repeated mistakes of the past (Picture: Getty)That leaves Aubameyang with just 13 months to run on his existing deal and Arsenal face losing him on a free in 2021. AdvertisementAdvertisementAliadiere believes the club cannot afford to lose the striker on a free and says Arsenal’s poor management has left Arteta with a huge problem as he has to now sell his biggest player.‘They’ve got to sell him, 100 per cent,’ Aliadiere said. ‘Arsenal can’t keep losing players on a free. To be honest, I still can’t believe we’ve again got a top player, our captain, going into the summer only having one year left on his contract.‘For me, it has to be sorted when he gets to two years. Last summer he should have signed a deal or been sold. Because when you get down to one year left, in a player’s mind there is a difference.

Who wouldn’t?”‘That’s why I just think it’s wrong management yet again,” Aliadiere added. “It should be sorted at two years. You should not let a player end up with a year left on his contract, especially a player like Aubameyang.‘It’s not right. I just think players are playing on it, they keep letting negotiations drag on and the next thing you know, he’s just got one year left.‘And now, how much are we going to sell him for with one year left? Arsenal are in the worst position you can imagine again because you’ve got a top quality player who assures you of 20-25 Premier League goals a season who is one year away from leaving on a free.‘Or, he gets sold to Barcelona or Real Madrid and for what? How much can you expect for him now? Nothing compared to what if you’d sold him last summer. They could have asked for £100 million.’MORE: Danny Rose claims Premier League players are being treated like ‘lab rats’ over Project Restart Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has 13 months to run on his deal (Picture: Getty)Arsenal’s poor management has given Mikel Arteta no option but to sell Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer.That’s the view of former Gunners forward, who believes the club have made the same mistake with the Gabon striker as they did with Samir Nasri and Robin van Persie, who they sold for cut-price fees. Aubameyang became Arsenal’s record signing in 2018 when he signed in a £56m deal from Dortmund and he’s hit 61 goals in 97 appearances for the Gunners. However, talks over a new deal with Aubameyang have failed to progress and the former Lille ace rejected the club’s last offer.ADVERTISEMENT Advertisementlast_img read more

Manchester City are also still in the Champions League, the final of which is scheduled for August 23, while Manchester United and Wolves are involved in the Europa League, which ends on August 21.

Lampard lost Willian and Ruben Loftus-Cheek on the eve of the FA Cup final to injury and Cesar Azpilicueta and goalscorer Christian Pulisic during the game to hamstring problems.Advertisement Loading… Promoted Content7 Things That Actually Ruin Your PhoneNothing Compares To Stargazing Places Around The World8 Things That Will Happen If An Asteroid Hits Earth7 Mind-Boggling Facts About Black Holes8 Fascinating Facts About CoffeeCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable Way2020 Tattoo Trends: Here’s What You’ll See This YearThe Highest Paid Football Players In The World6 Extreme Facts About HurricanesThe 10 Best Secondary Education Systems In The WorldWorld’s Most Delicious Foods6 Incredibly Strange Facts About Hurricanescenter_img “Even in a worst-case scenario, we don’t go through against Bayern, the 12th feels too early for me for the players to start playing again,” said the Chelsea boss. “The players need a break.
