“While we cannot confirm if the increased volume was directly related to the new virus, our evidence supports other recent work showing that emergence happened before identification at the Huanan Seafood market.””These findings also corroborate the hypothesis that the virus emerged naturally in southern China and was potentially already circulating at the time of the Wuhan cluster,” according to the research.It showed a steep increase in hospital parking lot occupancy in August 2019.”In August, we identify a unique increase in searches for diarrhea which was neither seen in previous flu seasons or mirrored in the cough search data,” according to the research The novel coronavirus might have been spreading in China as early as August 2019, according to Harvard Medical School research based on satellite images of hospital travel patterns and search engine data.The research used high-resolution satellite imagery of hospital parking lots in Wuhan – where the disease emerged in late 2019 – and data for symptom-related queries on search engines for things such as “cough” and “diarrhea”.”Increased hospital traffic and symptom search data in Wuhan preceded the documented start of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic in December 2019,” according to the research.

For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: After 45 matches, the league stages of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 has ended. India, Australia, England and New Zealand are the four semi-finalists. India will take on New Zealand in Manchester on July 9 while Australia will once again square off against England on July 11 in Edgbaston. The road to the semi-final for both India and New Zealand has been a study of contrasting fortunes. New Zealand started the tournament with a bang with four wins out of five but suffered three consecutive defeats to lose momentum before the knockouts. India, on the other hand, has been clinical with both bat and ball and have suffered just one loss in the tournament which was to England.Heading into the semi-final, Virat Kohli’s Indian cricket team are favourites to beat Kane Williamson’s New Zealand team. India’s batting and bowling have depth and form while the Kiwis have suffered in their batting which is overly reliant on Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor. This will be the first time India and New Zealand are squaring off in the semi-final of a 50-over World Cup and it will be a tough contest.However, the match will also see Kohli and Williamson square off in a knock-out for the first time since the two clashed in the 2008 Under-19 World Cup encounter in Malaysia. 11 years ago, Kohli and Williamson were big names in the junior circuit and it was a tense clash at the Kinrara Academy Oval in Kuala Lumpur. New Zealand elected to bat and they looked in good touch.After losing George Worker and Michael Guptill-Bunce cheaply, Williamson, in what would later become his trademark style, helped New Zealand stage a recovery. However, that was when Kohli decided to strike, not with the bat but with the ball. Kohli darted a quick ball wide outside off and Williamson was stumped for 37 by Shreevats Goswami. Kohli took his second wicket of Fraser Colson and had figures of 7-1-27-2. Corey Anderson blasted 70 off 76 balls which included six fours and four sixes and New Zealand ended on 205/8.During the India innings, rain intervened and the target for India was 191 in 43 overs. This time, it was Williamson’s turn to inflict damage on Kohli. Goswami and the Indian skipper had strung a solid 84-run stand, with Goswami hammering a fifty and Kohli looking good on 43. However, Kohli drove a full ball from Worker to short cover where Williamson took a brilliant catch to his right and New Zealand was in the hunt again. Tim Southee took four wickets but India held their nerve to win by three wickets and enter the final. Kohli’s men would script history by winning the 2008 Under-19 title by beating South Africa in a rain-affected match.11 years later, Kohli and Williamson are the modern-day greats of the game and are part of the fab-four in batting, along with Steve Smith and Joe Root. Both nations have a good record in the World Cup and they will be determined to enhance it in the semi-final. Will Williamson get the better of Kohli or will the Indian skipper inflict pain on the Kiwis as he did in 2008? The answer will be known on July 9. highlights India’s clash vs New Zealand in Trent Bridge was abandoned due to rain.New Zealand has a 4-3 head-to-head record against India in World Cups.Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson were part of the Under-19 World Cup in 2008.
DETROIT — Shohei Ohtani will return to the mound on Wednesday, with nine days rest since his last start.“Body-wise, I can’t really tell at this point if I needed those two or three days, but I was able to hit an extra couple games because of those two or three days, so in that way it worked out,” Ohtani said through his interpreter on Tuesday, after the Angels officially announced his return to the rotation.Ohtani pitched against the Tampa Bay Rays on May 20, his third straight outing on a Sunday. Instead of having him pitch last Sunday in New York, the Angels pushed him back a couple days, citing “workload management.”Sign up for Home Turf and get 3 exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily.

Although they have his history in Japan for a roadmap as to how to handle him, in some ways this is all an experiment.

The body feels great. The performance is somewhat there, so I’m satisfied so far. … Everything has been really tough so far. I still have a lot of hurdles to overcome. I just need to work hard every day to be able to overcome those hurdles, so I’ll keep going forward.”ALSOJustin Upton was presented with an award from the Detroit media as the Tigers player of the year for 2017.

Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions If the Lakers are unable to land their top choices in free agency – LeBron James and Paul George – could Caldwell-Pope see a long-term fit in L.A.?“It would be good to be here,” he said. “But I’m just going to leave it up with my agent and the Lakers organization and how they think I would fit and what’s good for me.”HIP NOTICEDIsaiah Thomas will miss a second straight game on Monday in Detroit due to the sore right hip that kept him sidelined against the Grizzlies.“He said it’s been sore and he thinks a couple days off will help, so I said of course,” Walton said.Thomas missed seven months due to a torn labrum in his hip following last season and appeared in just 15 games with the Cleveland Cavaliers before being traded to the Lakers at the trade deadline. In 17 games with the Lakers, Thomas has averaged 15.6 points in nearly 27 minutes per game.He played 25 minutes on Thursday in the Lakers loss against the Pelicans in New Orleans and finished with 15 points.It was just another blow to the Lakers already depleted roster. The Lakers will hold a light walk-through on Sunday focused on trying to get Brandon Ingram back for Monday’s trip finale.But Josh Hart remains at home with a broken bone in his left hand and Channing Frye, while available for the past two games, has not played since undergoing an appendectomy over the All-Star break.ALSOWith the conclusion of the South Bay Lakers’ season on Saturday, two-way players Alex Caruso and Gary Payton II became eligible to rejoin the Lakers. Payton is expected to do so in Detroit, but Caruso is currently out with a concussion. “It’s a different building,” Caldwell-Pope said, “(so) it wouldn’t feel the same. I made a lot of my career in the Palace, but it’s just going to feel good to see the arena, see old fans there and old friends. I should have a good time.”Caldwell-Pope is averaging 13.7 points and a career-high 5.5 rebounds per game for the Lakers. He has started all 64 of the games in which he has played and has seen his numbers spike in the second half of the season.Related Articles AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“It was easy for me to move on once that process happened,” he said.Detroit’s front office renounced his rights, allowing Caldwell-Pope to sign a one-year, $18 million deal with the Lakers.It was not the deal that Caldwell-Pope imagined when he first hit free agency in pursuit of a maximum contract. So this summer he will try again, hitting the open market in a top-heavy, but not especially deep, class of free agents.“It’d be nice to settle down in a great home instead of just moving around and stuff like that,” he said. “Right now I’m just thinking about my family and the security that we need.”Monday’s game in Detroit is unlikely to feel like much of a homecoming for the Lakers’ starting shooting guard. This is the first season the Pistons are playing at Little Caesar’s Arena in downtown Detroit, more than 30 miles south of the Palace of Auburn Hills. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error MEMPHIS – In the sixth month of the season, with only a handful of games left in the season, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will finally return to the city where he spent the first four years of his career.In a world where seemingly everyone gets a tribute video, Caldwell-Pope just doesn’t know how the people of Detroit will react to him.“I even asked my wife that,” Caldwell-Pope said Saturday. “I was like, ‘What you think? Will they boo me or give me a standing ovation?’ I don’t know. So, hopefully it’s not a boo, but if so, then it is what it is.”Caldwell-Pope left Detroit after the Pistons traded for all-defense guard Avery Bradley rather than face the prospect of matching an inflated offer sheet for the then-restricted free agent.
