Heroin and opioid overdose are the leading cause of accidental death in Pennsylvania, killing more individuals each year than motor vehicle accidents.Governor Wolf and other members of his administration, including Secretary Tennis, Dr. Levine, Secretary Wetzel, Secretary Dallas, and Director of Homeland Security Marcus Brown, have held bipartisan roundtables throughout the state to discuss local and statewide efforts to lead the nation in combating the opioid abuse and heroin use epidemic. Fighting Pennsylvania’s opioid and heroin epidemic is a top priority for the Wolf Administration and these events have been an opportunity to work collaboratively with the General Assembly and community leaders to ensure that Pennsylvania leads the nation in the fight to combat the opioid abuse and heroin use crisis.In addition to the governor’s community roundtables, Dr. Levine has been stopping at pharmacies in order to remind Pennsylvania residents and pharmacists that a doctor’s prescription is not needed to obtain the life-saving opioid overdose antidote drug naloxone. Last October, Dr. Levine signed a standing order that makes it possible for all Pennsylvania residents to access the life-saving drug naloxone. June 21, 2016 By: Darwin Paz, Digital Assistant

The Bundesliga will be the first top European league to restart matches since the outbreak of the coronavirus forced lockdown measures to be imposed across the continent. However, matches will be played without fans in attendance and with a maximum number of 300 people, including both teams, allowed at each game. Dynamo Dresden placed their entire squad into a 14-day quarantine on Saturday, just a week from the restart of the Bundesliga season, after the club reported two more cases of coronavirus. Dresden have 2 cases of the virus. The decision means that Dynamo, who are bottom of the second division, will not be able to play their fixture against Hannover next weekend. The setback comes just three days after Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government gave the German Football League (DFL) the green light to return to action on May 16 after a two-month absence. “In the past few weeks, we have made an enormous effort, both in terms of personnel and logistics, to strictly implement all prescribed medical and hygienic measures,” said Dresden sporting director Ralf Minge. “We are in contact with the responsible health authority and the DFL. The fact is that we cannot train or participate in games in the next 14 days.” As well as the players, Dresden will isolate its entire coaching and supervisory staff.Advertisement Loading… Read Also: La Liga goalie tests positive for coronavirus In the run-up to the restart, all teams must go into a one-week quarantine training camp.

American Olympic champion Brianna Rollins has been banned for a year for missing three drugs tests in 2016 – one of which came while she was meeting former United States president Barack Obama at the White House.Another saw Rollins, 25, miss a test to attend ‘Brianna Rollins Day’ in September in her hometown in Florida.Rollins, who won 100m hurdles gold in Rio, is banned until 18 December. She will therefore miss the World Championships in London in August.“This is one of the most difficult times in my career, especially after having such a great 2016 season,” Rollins said in a statement on Instagram.The United States Anti-Doping Agency (Usada) says Rollins failed to properly file her whereabouts information for drug testers.Under World Anti-Doping Agency rules, athletes cannot miss three tests in a 12-month period.Rollins missed one in April 2016, as she was travelling, and two in September – one when she was visiting the White House and the other when she returned to Florida.Usada says her results from 27 September – the date of her third whereabouts failure – will be disqualified, meaning the world champion will be allowed to keep the Olympic medal she won in August.“This is a difficult case because it involves the imposition of a serious penalty on a brilliant athlete who is not charged or suspected of using banned substances of any kind,” Usada said in the ruling Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
