Coronavirus company news summary – Utah Military Academy closes to limit Covid-19 outbreak

By Harry Lye

The Riverdale-based Utah Military Academy has been closed temporarily and is encouraging students to take to online classes following a Covid-19 outbreak at the school. School authorities reported that four adults tested positive for the virus. The infected staff stayed out of the premises when tested positive. However, school authorities are monitoring every student and staff who may have come in close contact with them.

SIBAT, a department within the Israeli ministry of defence (IMOD), has donated 10,000 Covid-19 test kits to the Department of National Defence (DND) of the Republic of the Philippines. The test kits were handed over at a ceremony attended by Philippine  Defense Secretary elfin Lorenzana and Rafael Harpaz, Israel’s Ambassador to the Philippines.

According to the Bohol Inter-Agency Task Force, about 35 Philippine army trainees have tested positive for Covid-19 on the island province of Bohol, the Philippines. An official from the task force stated that an additional number of trainees were infected because of exposure to nine other trainees who had been authorised outside their homes.
