uncaring students in our schools we see it as a deadly threat to safety and
security in our schools at a time when we are seeking to make our schools into
safe zones which are conducive to teaching and learning we call on our
students to immediately cease partaking in this practice mr. speed is urging
teachers and guardians to do all in their powers to reach schools and
communities of the hazardous crease observed mostly among teenagers
we must within our schools and our communities establish a zero tolerance
approach and definitive consequences for these potentially deadly acts against
innocent students and children while we are at this time calling on our students

last week Giovanni Dennis TVJ News the Caribbean
disaster emergency management agents sadena is awaiting feedback from some
member countries to finalize the regional response to the cope in
nineteen Kevon coronavirus a new center spoke with a head of sadena following a
webinar hosted by the caribbean broadcast and union here is T V J’s and
Jo Chisholm with the details over 64,000 reported cases of the kovat 19
coronavirus worldwide and as at friday close to 1400 people have died China and
the rest of the world are rushing to halt the spread there have been no
reported cases in the Caribbean but the region isn’t taking any chances
individual Caribbean countries like Jamaica have activated their emergency
health systems siddhim a– headed by Ronald E Jackson is working on a
regional response and you look at the Chinese kids in particular where you
have what one can say a worst case scenario if you use that as your sort of
your you’re planning benchmark for worst case and come back to your best case
then you know there are certain areas we would you would want to be concerned
about in terms of our ability to manage a large number of persons who may be
social assistance or quarantine let me put it that way as well as you know
questions whether we will be able to provide the necessary support before
numbers grew beyond the unhand resources that we have
sadena is working alongside its partners including the Pan American Health
Organization PAHO and the cabin Public Health Agency careful there is no
specific budget for Kovac 19 coronavirus but if needed donors will be asked to
contribute to the emergency assistance fund but we’re waiting on our members
it’s a come back with feedback on you know the the broader pool of government
approach in that regard our rule in terms of stockpiling would have to feed
off of what gaps countries are seeing that they have and that hasn’t come
forward in all cases at the moment and what calf is saying is it is it’s
gap and then together we would look to see how what strategies can be applied
in terms of closing that gap we are simply resources that we may have at our
immediate disposal mr. Jackson reiterated that cabin countries have to
use a multi sectoral approach health is just one aspect what you’re looking at
is a interface between between health water security and humanitarian support
we would have to come up with a clear appreciation of what a third response
would look like in the worst-case scenario
Andrea Chisholm TVJ news the opposition is seemingly taken the government to
task over the sharing of information to combat the deadly kovat 19 coronavirus
speaking on power 106 FM’s morning agenda this morning the opposition
spokesman on health dr. Maurice guy says a lot more needs to be done by the
government to ensure that the country’s seaports are safe TV chase
Shane Masters reports with the rapidly rising death toll from the corona virus
many are worried about the impact of such a virus on Jamaica as health sector
and economy the death toll from the cove 819 reached approximately 2,000 at the
end of Sunday across mainland China there were 2048 new confirmed infections
pushing the new total of infections to almost 71 thousand but back home
concerns are being raised by the opposition in relation to the number of
visitors that will arrive in the country this year and the security of Jamaicans
we are being approached by the pool some operators within the cruise ship in
industry those who work on land interface to the visitors who come but
as far they are where they are no plans in place no contingencies in place or
protocols in place to screen these visitors as is done as we have been told
each other at the airport so that health minister dr. Christopher talked and I
gave up this response one could take a very extreme position if you want it to
and other country and just prevent anyone certainly in the cruise industry
from coming unsure but clearly that would help other very significant
implications for an industry the the issue therefore is is there risk
associated with allowing tourism through crew shipping to function while we
manage and monitor that risk and clearly that is the position that we have taken
as is the case with the rest of the world but dr. guy maintains the country
could still feel the impact if there is an unsuspecting case of a virus entering
through the country seaports we are concerned that one just one single one
might flip through and then infect the same population I mean call it a wh-who
one one there is minimal waste of transmission to two or three persons
however the Health Minister is assuring term Akins that all is in place and the
relevant or authorities will make the necessary decisions to keep the citizens
safe I do begin that based on past history the it has our turkeys do have a
good system it has turned back ships before I personally as minister of
working with the team turn back an entire cruise ship because
of a health risk that was perceived at the time so we’re not afraid to take
decisions or she’d masters TVJ news did you make a defense force is still on

get here at this setup away no problem you slob with it Kaneesha Williams TV Jennings when the
port is returning to Jamaica concerns are being raised about how they’re being
processed by the Jamaican government and released into society the issue was
raised on TV Jay smile Jamaica this morning TV Jay’s Anthony lock reports
head of the JC f’s corporate communications unit Senior
Superintendent Stephanie Lindsay says most migrants are deported as a result
of immigration issues attorney-at-law john basi says due to the complicated
nature of deportation it’s wrong to assume that all deportees are violent
criminals with the UK as B to the UK there are two types of removal you’re
the administrative removal which is really called forced removal and it
normally speaks the person who has known no more time left in England there is no
more leave to remain there and then of course you have the deportation
deportation speaks to where person has in fact gone through a criminal sentence
for 12 months or longer and has to be removed by a deportation notice 17
deportees recently arrived in the island on a charter flight from the UK these
individuals had various convictions and a combined sentence of 75 years one had
a life sentence seen a superintendent Stephanie Lindsay sought to explain what
will happen to those with incomplete sentences and those who have already
served their sentences once we get the information that person’s will becoming
then this they will check our local system to see if person if they were if
we have an interest in them because there are some persons who go abroad
because they are run away from all of justice system so if they fall into that
category upon return would have an interest in them otherwise if they have
served their time overseas no matter the seriousness of the offence when they
come to Jamaica they go through this processing they check
fingerprints they check identity because sometimes they are sent back under a
different name that means we have so we go through that but after that process
is done then there’s no monitoring they’re free citizen she also addressed
concerns raised about the migrants who had nowhere to go for persons who don’t
have anyone to receive them there are at least two NGOs that really come in and
support them so they will provide them with meal
they will take their information whatever belongings they have and they
will provide them with some temporary shelter and accommodation until they
find a way to sort themselves and TPG news in sports the Jamaica rugby sevens
team has won this competition to play in in preparation for the Intercontinental
playoffs for the Olympic Games as the Hong Kong Sevens has been postponed
since Hong Kong is close to mainland China the governing body of the sport
world rugby has moved the annual tournament from April to October due to
the corona virus outbreak the series of qualifiers for the Olympic Games is
slated for June 20 and 21 in France chairman of the Jamaica Rob the Union
Jerry benzevich says he will be searching for another competition to
prepare the team for the Olympic qualifiers Jamaica that we have one less
tournament to prepare for the repechage Olympic qualifiers which would follow so
know we are without a extra tournament it means that we have to put in more
work at the one that we’re presently in and hopefully look for another
tournament to attend before the repechage this will be costly because
the Hong Kong Sevens was a fun date trip so no we’re gonna have to probably seek
sponsorship in order to get some of our boys either over to the UK to get into
our tournament or we want to maybe fly them to the biggest sevens to
participate in one of the lesser tournaments that’s going on there
Jamaica’s competed at the Hong Kong Sevens in each of the last three years
and that’s the media news I’m Milton Walker join us at 7:00 for primetime

  53. So true tjem love follow everything kmt

  54. I want to chanellege supt Stephanie Linsay about the returning residents from england, about checking their criminal background. Jamaica having some many crimes unsolved, because of all the good crime fighters migrated from Jamaica. Because most of the top detectives from flying squad, I have heard is dismantled also other branches of the force. So the time you are trying to concentrating on the poor returning residents from England, you should be concentrating on the crimes is committed into her police areas and. Leave the people them alone, and try to helped reforms them back into the Jamaican society. Have all the crimes that the generation of England has committed against the Jamaican people over hundreds of years, have the Jamaican government. Ever trying to following them up about those murders, rapes, arson,robberies, etc,etc,they has committed in Jamaica before they left. So why you are anxious to be trying to getting at the people them, trying to accommodate nonsense. You don't have better things to do with your time, more than trying to waste more taxpayers money on nonsense. Why you don't help the people get back some of the money which the England government took away from some of them, because they may have papers to be living there according to them. Some people is taking the police works too serious Lindsay, because once a police, and twice a civilian. I have known hundreds of people who served in the police force long before your time, because you are young police and .None of them is no more around, you should be worrying about indecom that is arresting up to gazzetting officers. Which I never seeing before living in Jamaica before I migrated , a civilian arresting a gazzetting officers as I already mentioned Lindsay. You should be trying to help the police federation to fight the illegal activities of indecom,you are trying to get at the poor people them returning to their own country.

  55. I would like to know if Dr Dayton Campbell is once the deceased former mayor of St,Ann's Bay, councillor Sam Campbell if his father. He useto run for the same NW St,Ann for years, I knew he had a couple of sons but I don't remember their names. One of his son was a very good cricketer, when I was about to left Jamaica. One of his son was about to enter the university of the West Indies, comrade I known your father from a little boy. He was a very nice man comrade, my parents useto voted for him for years.

  56. The things these teenagers do now a days is just crazy i just cant imagine why they would something like that and then turn around and laugh smh

  57. Dayton Campbell check yuhself before yuh reck yuhself

  58. Them waa box in a dem ears

  87. Technology oh lord so sad

  88. It is so amazing to see that these pnp politicians KNOW and can highlight the problems that is in Jamaica only when campaigning yet not when in power. For 18 years pnp had power from pj (worst prime minister ever) to Portia everything was "always in the pipeline". Andrew Holness is the best prime minister I have seen in 20 years and I don't follow parties. I follow obvious progress such as roads being fixed and not just the tourist and main roads, also serious policing of the streets, free healthcare though it needs a lot of work but it's free, free education, again needs work and less billions of tax papers money being missing or blown up. For sure they might also be robbing a few under the table but at least I can see where taxpapers money have been utilized in the short time he has been in power. Jcans would be foolish to vote pnp next election and Andrew Holness is on the ballots.
