don’t you know feel the urge to take matters into their own hand as deep and
as wrenching as the pain is there is the call this afternoon for the
boundaries of the state of emergency in East Kingston to be extended it comes
from the Member of Parliament for East Royal Assent Angier Juliet Holness who
was speaking yesterday in Parliament the call follows a flare-up of violence in
the bull bay area mr. Minister I would only ask as it relates to my own
constituency that the SOE in place goes a little further from 7:00 from 9 men
will be out in level miles where the constituency ends because we still have
some pockets of criminal activity up in the hills of 10-mile will be and we are
desperately in need of the intervention of the SOE I can speak mrs. wholeness
says residents are fearful to even use anonymous methods such as crime stop 3 1
1 as well as 911 criminal activity no matter how they come and tell you that
they are suffering that the criminals are preying on them when you go in with
the police to sit down and have a talk with them nobody will talk nobody at all
will talk the latest no on the coronavirus the death toll from the
outbreak continues to climb in China rising to 490 new cases have surged by
double-digit percentages in the past 11 days the new figures from China’s Health
Commission on Wednesday showed that 65 people died on Tuesday and that 3000 887
more people had been infected so far 24,000 324 people are known to have been
infected health experts say the death toll is likely to rise because of the
large number of infections the mortality rate of the coronavirus which is about 2
percent so far appears to be far lower than SARS which has a mortality rate of
about 10% over experts warn that they still lack enough data to say
definitively how lethal the new coronavirus is meanwhile Canada has
confirmed its 5th case of the deadly coronavirus officials in Vancouver made
the announcement on 2 they saying the victim had visitors from
the Chinese city that’s ground zero for the outbreak MP for Southeast sent
Andrew Julian Robinson is again reiterating the need for the high
command to do more to boost to the morale of the police personnel with
seven states of emergency and the two zones of special operations in effect
mr. Robinson says the police are stretched they are extremely stretch by
based on the seven states of emergencies and sources that exists their conditions
of work are challenging being out on the road away from their families for
extended periods of time and so we have to ensure that mechanisms are in place
not just for their welfare as in food and shelter but also for their
well-being and the stress levels that are attendant
with being on the road for these extended periods of time and even though
the mobile service section of the Jamaica constable Air Force has been
disbanded the national security minister says aspects of their operations are
still ongoing to operate in different years and operating and every price of
our OSP team is the operation of special operations our team on the ground as
well the entire organization proceeding and we’ll have men of that level as in
operation he also give an update on the Jamaican National Service Corps security
service who have been vetted have been absorbed in as family in body Jamaica
Defence Force the police force the Correctional Service and some up a few
have gone to customs passport immigration center and other areas to
news on the political scene now the People’s National Party says it will not
be contesting the by-election for South East Clarendon until their general
secretary of the GOP dr. Horace Chan hinted at a by-election following the
resignation of member of parliament for the constituents of Rudyard Spencer
in a statement this morning PNP general secretary Julian Robinson described the
by-election as unnecessary and a wasteful political exercise he noted
that while the party wishes mr. spent so well in his retirement his resignation
has not been occasioned by any personal or national emergency he says it was
rather a ploy by the GOP to settle the political wrangling between senators
Pernell Charles jr. and Robert Morgan mr. Robinson said Jamaicans could not be
expected to provide the electoral office of Jamaica with 30 million dollars to
pay for a contrived by-election he said that is on that is an unwise move when
general elections expected to cost over 1 billion dollars are due within months
and it’s no time for a break and will return right after these messages welcome back continuing the news now the

morning in Mandeville Manchester a man is in custody in relation to the

Kirk Wright TVJ News and it’s now time for a preview of what’s coming up in
this evenings health report if the next edition of the health report we look at
leptospirosis some how it is a cultural problem because you know people are used
to buying some soup here or there but soup is not really the problem
okay soup is hot and so if you’re consuming it hot then it could be pretty
safe but we’re talking about the fruit stores and so on peeling the fruit
cutting it and also the fact that there is there is no proper counter where this
is done there is no hand-washing facilities
that’s the Health Report this evening in primetime news and to know for today’s
healthy living tip if you have leptospirosis if your medical doctor may
prescribe antibiotic to treat the infection you should make a full
recovery in a few days or weeks it’s important to finish the course of
antibiotics even if you start to feel better
and if you have a more serious infection you may need to be treated in hospital

  7. GOVERNMENT of Jamaica need to recognize the law ABIDING CITIZENS and give them the green light to help privately rid the crime infested country

  8. Why should they talk when they might end up dead as well, they can say anything when they are living in gated communities and secure places, but the ghetto is a different place all together where you can't even trust the police, and the politician have no clue so all they do is talk and gaslighting the people because they believe most of the people are illiterate and ignorant and are easily manipulated.
