The agency reports that given the infectious nature of the virus it is likely other residents are infected but yet to be tested or confirmed positive. To that end, all New Mexicans have been instructed to stay home except for outings absolutely necessary for health, safety and welfare. These additional restrictions have been enacted to aggressively minimize person-to-person contact and ensure spread is mitigated. New Mexicans are strongly urged to limit travel to only what is necessary for health, safety and welfare.The New Mexico Department of Health has active investigations into the positive patients, which includes contact-tracing and swabs of symptomatic individuals who have had contact with the positive cases.Every New Mexican must work together to stem the spread of COVID-19. Stay home, especially if you are sick. Wear a mask or face covering when in public and around others.New Mexicans who report symptoms of COVID-19 infection, such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, and/or loss of taste or smell should call their health care provider or the NMDOH COVID-19 hotline immediately (1-855-600-3453).The Department of Health strongly encourages the following groups to get tested:Symptomatic people displaying the COVID-19 symptoms of fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, and/or loss of taste or smell;Asymptomatic people who are close contacts or household members of people in their infectious period who have already tested positive for the coronavirus;Asymptomatic people who live or work in congregate settings such as long-term care facilities and group homes; andPatients who are scheduled for surgery and whose provider has advised them to get tested before the procedure.New Mexicans who have non-health-related questions or concerns can also call 833-551-0518 or visit newmexico.gov, which is being updated regularly as a one-stop source for information for families, workers and others affected by and seeking more information about COVID-19.
The Flamingos, quarter finalists at the 2010, 2012 and 2014 FIFA U17 World Cup finals, missed the last edition of the competition hosted by Uruguay but have vowed to return at the seventh edition billed for India later this year.Earlier scheduled to fly out of the country to Conakry on Thursday, 27th February, the Flamingos will continue their technical and tactical sessions under the watchful eyes of first assistant coach Bankole Olowookere and the technical team. They will now travel on Thursday, 5th March.Guinea ousted neighbours Guinea Bissau after two legs in the first round of the qualifying race to be eligible to file out against the FlamingosShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram The Federation Guinean de Football (FGC) has pleaded with the Nigeria Football Federation for postponement by one week of the FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup second round, first leg qualifier between both countries earlier scheduled for this weekend in Conakry.FGF’s reason is that the set date of Saturday’s 29th February coincides with the Guinean legislative election, and it would not be auspicious to host such an important game that same day.The NFF has sent a letter of no objection, and though the FGF has fixed a new date of Saturday, 7th March for the encounter and the NFF has accepted (meaning there would be only one week in-between the first leg and the return slated for the Agege Stadium, Lagos), the Confederation of African Football still has to give a stamp of approval, as a formality.
