The said statement was made before the Division Bench of Justice Hima Kohli and Justice Subramonium Prasad, after the court pulled up the Delhi Government for leaking the said sero-surveillance reports to the media before producing the same before the court. The court questioned the said trend by saying that: ‘We know what has been happening. You tell us that the final report is not ready yet, and produce figures from an interim report, and the next day the said report is all over the media. Why are you doing this? We had said very categorically that such reports are first supposed to be produced before the court.’ Appearing for the Delhi Government, Mr Satyakam informed the court that the actual sero-prevalence in Delhi is 25%, while the media reports show it to be 33%. He said: ‘Just after the hearing, I see HT and Indian Express running reports showing 33% sero-prevalence in Delhi. Some journalists called me asking for the report, but I told them that no such report has been released to the media.’ At this point, the court asked the government as to why it did not deny the veracity of such reports in public domain when it knew that they were fake. No response was received by the court on this query. The court continued to pull up the Delhi Government for not carrying out RT-PCR test as per the full capacity. The court asked the government to explain as to why despite multiple orders, the government is not fully utilising the RT-PCR capacity, which is globally known as the golden test.

Padres rookie Hunter Renfroe again puts hurt on Dodgers

first_imgThe back-to-back losses in San Diego have stalled the Dodgers’ pursuit of home-field advantage in their best-of-five National League Division Series against the Washington Nationals this week. The Nationals also lost Wednesday night in a game called during the sixth inning due to rain. So the Nationals’ lead over the Dodgers remains two games with four games left to play.The Dodgers did hit three home runs of their own – solo shots by Chase Utley and Adrian Gonzalez in the first inning and a two-run drive by Joc Pederson in the fourth inning.Pederson’s homer was his 25th of the season, joining Yasmani Grandal (27), Justin Turner (27) and Corey Seager (26) to give the Dodgers four players with 25 or more home runs this season. It is only the fourth time in franchise history that has happened, the first time since 1997 (Mike Piazza, Todd Zeile, Raul Mondesi and Eric Karros).De Leon lasted just 2 1/3 innings against the Padres and allowed 11 runs in six innings over his final two starts. After the game, Roberts essentially took De Leon out of the running for a spot on the playoff roster, leaving a clear field for fellow rookie Julio Urias to be the presumptive Game 4 starter.“With Jose, it was an outside shot anyway,” Roberts said. “Obviously, his last two starts haven’t been what he expected. “Even if it (the postseason roster) doesn’t happen, that’s not a knock on him. This has been a positive experience for him.”De Leon acknowledged that, saying “honestly, I didn’t think it was going to happen this fast” about his rise to the major leagues this season.“Even though it’s not finishing the way I want it to, I’m just grateful for the opportunity,” De Leon said. “I’m living my dream.“It’s been a blessing. I’ll go to spring training next year with more confidence.” SAN DIEGO >> Home-field advantage goes to Hunter Renfroe.One night after he drove in seven runs with two home runs, the San Diego Padres’ young slugger became the first player in the 13-year history of Petco Park to hit a ball onto the rooftop of the Western Metal Supply Co. building down the left-field line during a game.Renfroe also had a two-run single in the first inning before his two-run, 435-foot blast in the third inning off Dodgers rookie right-hander Jose De Leon on Wednesday night. That gives Renfroe four home runs and 12 RBI in his first seven major-league games. And it went a long way toward helping the Padres hand the Dodgers a 6-5 defeat.“That came off pretty hot,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said of Renfroe’s long drive, which came off the bat at 109 mph. “This kid has big power.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
