Zinc can reduce the risk of age-related chronic diseases. A study conducted by Oregon State University has found that zinc intake may decrease the risk of inflammatory diseases. Zinc may prevent age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and prevents vision loss, according to the Archives of Ophthalmology.

Journal of Biological Chemistry boasts that zinc may assist in regulating the heartbeat which can minimize the risk of arrhythmia-related heart failure. Furthermore, Zinc may treat acne, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), osteoporosis, hypothyroidism, and pneumonia.

 Prevents Male Infertility
Zinc deficiency is a potential risk factor for the low quality of sperm and male infertility. Research has proved that zinc sulfate and folic acid supplementation can improve the sperm count of healthy adult males

How Much Zinc Do You need?

The recommended intake for Zinc ranges from 3-5 milligrams for 1-8 years old children. Males under the age-group of 9 to 13 years old require 8 milligrams of zinc per day. The requirement rises to 11 milligrams per day after the age of 14. The adult males (19 years and above) also require not more than 11 milligrams Zinc per day.

At least 18 people died while 20 others sustained serious injuries in road traffic accidents recorded during Zambia’s long weekend, the police said on Thursday.

The country recorded a total of 236 road traffic accidents during this year’s Heroes and Unity holidays that lasted from Saturday to Tuesday, police spokesperson Esther Mwaata-Katongo said.
She, however, noted that the accidents recorded during this year’s Heroes and Unity holidays declined from last year’s figures when 274 accidents were recorded.

Lusaka, the country’s capital, recorded the highest number of accidents accounting for 117 accidents followed by the Copperbelt province with 33 accidents and Central province with 25 accidents.

The police spokesperson attributed the reduction in road traffic accidents to restricted movements in the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the presence of traffic police officers on major roads and accident-prone areas.

After an executive board meeting of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC), it was decided that this year’s Asia Cup, which was scheduled on September, will now be postponed due to the unavoidable circumstances created by COVID-19 pandemic. ACC hopes the event will take place in June 2021.

In the same meeting, hosting board Pakistan exchanged the hosting rights with Sri Lanka who will host the next Asia Cup, and Pakistan will host the next edition in 2022.

“From the onset, the Board was keen on organising the tournament as per the original schedule. However, travel restrictions, country-specific quarantine requirements, fundamental health risks and social distancing mandates have posed as substantial challenges to the holding of the Asia Cup,” an ACC media release reads.

“Above all, the risks related to health and safety of participating players, support staff, commercial partners, fans and the cricketing community were deemed to be significant,” the released adds.

Pakistan was the host nation of this Asia Cup. They were hopeful to host his event in the soil of Pakistan, but India refused to tour to Pakistan which had forced the authority to opt UAE as the venue.

‘Accordingly, the Board, after careful consideration of all the above factors, has determined that the Asia Cup 2020 be postponed. Conducting the event in a responsible manner remains the priority of the ACC and the Board is hopeful that the tournament will be held in 2021. The ACC is currently working towards securing June 2021 as a suitable window for the same,” the release further reads.

“In order to effectively address the issue we need to be willing to take the ‘bull by the horn’ i.e. rather than reaching for the lowest hanging fruit, work at solutions that are mindful of its impact to all including women, and the diverse communities that make our country,” said Saima, the Advisor to the Director General of WHO on Autism and Mental Health.

In her recent article, she said they need to acknowledge that they have not sufficiently delved into legal, social and economic protections that are necessary.

Despite many female political leaders, the everyday woman still suffers in silence because she does not have the voice or the agency to speak her mind or pursue her dreams independently, said Saima, also Member of WHO’s Expert Advisory Panel on Mental Health.

“Addressing these issues become even more important when we are faced with a global pandemic, making this gap starkly apparent. In the past few months, women across the globe have been victims of a rising number of domestic violence situations, which have escalated. In addition, women who hitherto worked in the informal sector, have been left particularly vulnerable; essentially unaccounted for and unsupported, significantly impacting their financial and emotional well-being.”

Saima said the issue of women’s rights, feminism and gender is complex and ongoing in most countries including Bangladesh.

“When I was asked to write about impact of COVID-19 on women and girls, I found myself drawn towards writing about women’s situation in general as that automatically impacts COVID-19 response as well. Since I am a woman who has been a part of many different cultures, yet a Bangali at heart, I am not only a survivor within its ranks but also responsible for being a part of the solution to the problems we face.”

In his chronicles as a young adult, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the Founding Father of Bangladesh, wrote about the need for equal rights for men and women.

He stayed true to his vision by giving them equal voice in the political process of the country as an equal citizen. As a President he went to tremendous lengths to rehabilitate and support the survivors of the genocide committed by the Pakistani military on Bengali civilians in 1971.

‘One- size-fits-all solution won’t work’

“Since independence, much progress has been made to ensure that women from childhood have every opportunity to participate in educational and economic opportunities in the country,” said Saima.

“We not only have a woman as the Head of Government, but women holding positions in the justice system, as Speaker of the House of Parliament, as ministers, in academia, armed forces, and the corporate sector, among others. New laws addressing age of marriage, gender violence, domestic abuse and others have also been adopted,” she added.

Saima said cornerstones of the transition of the role of women in Bangladesh are the growth in the RMG (ready-made garments) sector, and the opportunities created by small cottage industries.

In the 1980’s, Bangladeshi society experienced a major shift due to the demand by the growing RMG sector for large number of cheap labor who would work under practically any circumstances.

Despite the many questionable labour practices and human rights issues, for the young women living in abject poverty and treated as a burden on their families, it was an opportunity for financial freedom, and to be valued within their families.

Up until that time, the only other income opportunity for women with minimal education was domestic work.

The same time that women began to be employed in the RMG sector, women were simultaneously also making incremental earnings through small cottage industries.

“Looking at these notable and impactful changes, it is undeniable that the most significant reason behind Bangladesh’s dramatic economic development is the role and function women have played, be it as a leader or as a daily wage earner,” Saima said.

Nevertheless, she said, the question remains, has economic participation, opportunities for education, and employment truly impacted how women are treated in society on a daily basis?

The societal imbalance that exists between “men, women, and those we identify as third gender in Bangladesh, are in almost every country but manifests themselves differently,” she said.

“Thus, a one- size-fits-all solution does not work because of this very reason. The Covid 19 pandemic we are all trying to survive, demonstrates that no issue or solution is as simple as it appears.”

UK pharmacy giant Boots on Thursday said it will cut more than 4,000 jobs after the country’s coronavirus lockdown slashed sales, especially affecting its opticians.

US-owned Boots said it planned “significant restructuring across its head office, store teams and opticians… resulting in a reduction of its headcount of more than 4,000 and the closure of 48 Boots Opticians stores”.
Boots UK managing director Sebastian James said cutting the workforce by seven percent would allow the pharmacy “to continue its vital role as part of the UK health system, and ensure profitable long-term growth.

“In doing this, we are building a stronger and more modern Boots for our customers, patients and colleagues,” he added.

Boots meanwhile said that COVID-19 had “accelerated the shift by consumers towards digital channels and online shopping”.

Parent group Walgreens Boots Alliance said in a separate statement that the sales impact from COVID-19 was as much as $750 million in its third quarter, or three months to the end of May.

“This reflected a dramatic reduction in footfall in Boots UK stores — down 85 percent in April — as consumers were advised to leave home only for food and medicine,” the statement said.

“While most Boots stores remained open throughout the UK lockdown to provide communities with pharmacy and essential healthcare, our largest premium beauty and fragrance counters were effectively closed” along with almost all 600 opticians, it added.

The US Food and Drug Administration has added more types of hand sanitizer to its growing list of products that are either confirmed or potentially contaminated with toxic methanol.

More than two dozen hand sanitizer products sold by Mexico-based 4E Global — many carrying the Blumen label — contain high levels of methanol and have been recommended for recall, the agency said.
The FDA said it has seen an increase in products containing ethanol, also known as ethyl alcohol, that tested positive for potentially poisonous methanol contamination.

Methanol can be life-threatening if ingested and toxic if absorbed through the skin. States have also reported cases of blindness, hospitalizations and deaths in adults and children after drinking hand sanitizer products tainted with methanol, the FDA said.

Methanol, or wood alcohol as it’s often known, is used in antifreeze and fuel production. Exposure can also cause nausea, headaches, dizziness, agitation, amnesia, coma and seizures, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The CDC advises people to frequently wash their hands with soap and water to avoid contracting the novel coronavirus. If soap and water are not available, the CDC recommends using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% ethanol.

The FDA is urging consumers to check their hand sanitizers to find out if they are on the list of bad products posted on the agency’s website and to report any adverse events or quality problems.
