Tonga volcano relief efforts face challenges: UN


2022-01-19 浏览

Relief efforts following the Tonga volcano eruption face the challenge of severed communications, falling ash closing the major airport and strict anti-COVID measures, UN officials said on Tuesday.

They said the casualty toll remained at three dead and an unknown number of people injured.

"Needs assessments by the Tongan authorities are ongoing and should provide a better estimate of what is required of the international community," said Stephane Dujarric, the chief spokesman for UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. "We are on standby with teams and emergency supplies, and stocks in Tonga are being readied for distribution once humanitarian needs are identified."

"Our staff there are working to assist coordination and response efforts in-country," he told a regular press briefing. There are 23 UN workers in Tonga – 22 local hires and one international staffer.

In a video conference, Jonathan Veitch, the UN acting resident and humanitarian coordinator for Fiji, the Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu, spelled out challenges following Saturday's eruption.

Communications within the 36 inhabited of the nation's 169 islands were limited to satellite phones, as was the capital Nuku'alofa and between Tonga and the outside world.

The major submarine communications cable was severed, cutting voice, video and Internet services. Still, Veitch said, "I'm able to send basic messages by SMS (Small Message Service –text) to our colleagues through satellite systems, and we hope that soon phones will be back up and running."

While the natural choice for humanitarians is to fly in relief, Veitch said the Nuku'alofa airport remained closed because workers were unable to finish clearing ashfall. He said ships sailing from Australia and New Zealand would take six to eight days to arrive in a Tonga port.

He also said there is a question of just how the authorities would handle people coming to Tonga when it has extremely strict protocols against COVID-19. No cases have been reported in the nation. Authorities are keen to keep the country COVID-free, especially in light of past Pacific island populations wiped out by rampant disease.

While there are no casualties among the 23 UN workers, there are an unknown number of injuries on outlying islands, Veitch said.

He said damage reports from those islands are coming in slowly. The coordinator said it is possible that damage on the outlying islands may not be as severe since they are further from the volcaNo. The eruption occurred only 65 km from the main island of Tongatapu, home of the capital.

"We are concerned about the water situation," Veitch said. "I haven't heard that people have run out of water which would be obviously an emergency situation. Of course we have heard that shops are running out of food and also there has been quite a lot of ... mass purchasing as always happens in these circumstances, including of water and of food supplies too."

Technicians are examining a desalination plant on the main island to see if it is ready to go back online. The expected ships carry water, food, emergency supplies and even desalination plants.

The sooner, the better to get the supplies, the coordinator said. "It is urgent."

More people turn to competitive sports to keep fit


2022-01-14 浏览

Even at a young age, dozens of adolescent fencers show their dexterity while brandishing their fencing swords against their rivals at a downtown fencing club in Hefei, capital of east China's Anhui Province.

Among them, 7-year-old Wu Zhangyi, the youngest participant, has received professional training for over a year at the club. "I hope someday I may participate in the Olympics," the pupil said.

After four years of operation, the club now has over 150 members, three national-level coaches, and five top athletes. Similar fencing clubs are available in almost all urban districts in the city.

A large number of professional competitive sports such as fencing, ice hockey, figure skating, and archery are gaining momentum across the country among sports enthusiasts ranging from minors to the elderly.

According to a 2021 national physical fitness plan for the 2021-2025 period, 38.5 percent of the population will take part in physical exercise as a routine by 2025, driving the total size of the country's sports industry to 5 trillion yuan (US$785.5 billion).

In July 2021, China introduced a set of "double reduction" rules to ease the burden of excessive homework and off-campus tutoring for young students, which further encourages physical fitness, especially among younger people.

Zhang Xue, Wu's coach, said fencing can not only strengthen the mind but also thinking, adding that "during practice, pupils need to keep their eyes sharp, sum up experiences, adapt to rules, study their opponents, and upgrade tactics to make progress."

Higher and more professional requirements are needed compared with regular sports activities, Zhang said. Although professional equipment and systematic training are required to play competitive sports, more and more people are turning to practice sports like fencing, the coach added.

According to official data, the total output of China's sports industry was nearly 3 trillion yuan in 2019, a rise of 10.9 percent over the previous year. By the end of 2020, China had over 3.71 million sports venues, covering more than 3 billion square meters.

Jin Qiang, a former boxer, runs his own boxing gym in downtown Hefei. He is among a large number of sports enthusiasts seeking opportunities in the expanding market.

Since the opening of Jin's gym in 2019, hundreds of people have received training there.

"My students range from 5-year-olds to people in their 50s," Jin said. "It's a pleasure to see the sport make a difference among them and help my students become stronger, healthier, and more welcome to challenges."
