A coronavirus quarantine center was previously set up in Natuna, Riau Islands.“We shall see if this is the right time to turn the location into a special hospital to treat patients infected with novel coronavirus. Hopefully, this plan will be realized soon and the hospital can be put to use immediately, especially if there are infected patients near Galang Island,” Hadi said.  Following the confirmation of the first two COVID-19 cases in Indonesia, the government is making plans to transform a former camp for Vietnamese refugees on Galang Island, Batam, Riau Islands, into a hospital for COVID-19 patients. During a visit to assess the site, Indonesian Military (TNI) commander Air Chief Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto said Galang Island was chosen as the location for a COVID-19 hospital as several of the site’s buildings still remained after being used as a refugee camp from 1979 to 1996.last_img read more

Traore: I Will Return to Barcelona or Join Real Madrid

first_img Barcelona have been without the services of their own winger, Ousmane Dembele, for the majority of this season with a recurring hamstring injury. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Barça won’t win the Champions League (and perhaps this season La Liga too) without a big contribution from Ousmane Dembele. He gives a counter-attacking presence otherwise missing. Makes them a different team against the high press Real would also have to consider their current options on the right before they could make any move for Traore, who would be competing with the likes of Rodrygo, Marco Asensio and Gareth Bale in Madrid.

Catalan native Traore joined Barcelona’s La Masia academy at the age of eight and eventually left for Aston Villa in 2015, joining Wolves three years later via Middlesbrough. When asked about a potential return to Spain, he told El Larguero (h/t Football Espana): “A return to Barca? I don’t bear any grudges. But equally, if Real Madrid called me I would go there too. I was (at Barcelona) for 10 years, and I have very good memories.” The 23-year-old also sparkled in Wolves’ 3-2 comeback win over 10-man Manchester City in December when he scored one goal and assisted another. Despite his evolution at Molineux since he moved to Wolverhampton in August 2018, there may still be doubts as to whether he’s ready to shine for La Liga’s top clubs. Traore has grown into a unique commodity since he left the Blaugrana, whom he represented four times in total.
