first_imgCoronavirusIndianaLocalNews Twitter (File Photo/Federated Media) Many Hoosiers who have been diagnosed with coronavirus are not cooperating with contact tracers, says the Indiana State Department of Health.Contact tracing is the scientific process of reaching out to people who have the virus to help identify other people they may have infected. Lindsay Weaver, chief medical officer with the Indiana State Department of Health, says contact tracing is vital to stopping the spread of coronavirus.“Today we have 955 contact tracers working as part of our centralized contact tracing operation and another 371 in local health departments,” said Weaver.The state is spending more than $40 million on contact tracing efforts. They’re trying to contact every infected person as soon as their test results are shared with the ISDH.“The contract tracers also report that more people are refusing to complete the first contract tracing survey, which of course puts us all at greater risk of COVID and is a significant barrier in bringing our numbers back down,” she said.She says when people refuse to respond to contact tracers with the ISHD, those cases are then referred to local health departments for follow up. In Marion County, contact tracers from IUPUI are currently engaged in a program to go door-to-door to help to reach people who have not responded to contact tracing.The ISDH says other obstacles to contact tracing could be language barriers or the fear by those who are infected that contact tracing will force the police to be involved. Weaver says that is not the case.

first_imgLiverpool have spent more than any other Premier League club on fees paid to players’ agents for the third successive year, according to figures released by the Football Association on Wednesday. Liverpool top the latest figures for Premier League spending on agent fees The FA’s latest list covers the summer window in 2019 and the January 2020 transfer period. Over those two windows, Premier League leaders Liverpool spent £30.3 million ($37.6 million) on agent fees. Liverpool’s major deal over that period was the signing of Japan winger Takumi Minamino from Salzburg for £7.2 million in January. The club’s total agent spend was a reduction from nearly £44 million, which the Reds spent the previous year.Advertisement Under FIFA rules, the FA has been publishing the total payments made by clubs in England’s top five divisions to agents for the last three years, as well as a list of every transfer which involved an agent. Despite Liverpool’s reduction and the Premier League’s efforts to bring down the amount clubs spend on agents, the combined figures show an increase from £261 million to £263.3 million for the English top-flight. The top four spenders on agents, as in the two previous years, consisted of Liverpool, Manchester City, who spent £29 million, Manchester United, who paid £27.6 million, and Chelsea, whose total was £26.2 million.
