Eriksen collapsed during Denmark’s opening Euro 2020 group game against Finland on Saturday and was given lengthy medical treatment before regaining consciousness. “He was gone. And we did cardiac resuscitation. And it was cardiac arrest,” said team doctor M o r t e n Boesen, who led the work in giving Eriksen treatment on the field. “How close were we? I don’t know. We got him back after one defib. That’s quite fast.” Eriksen was in stable condition at a Copenhagen hospital and had spoken to teammates via video link on Sunday team officials said. , Boesen said it was still unclear what caused the midfielder’s collapse. “I’m not cardiologist, so the details about why it happened and further, I will leave to the experts,” he said.

For instance, Meerut in UP, Hooghly and Howrah in West Bengal, Pune in Maharashtra, Alwar in Rajasthan and Panipat in Haryana received more doses than districts with high- er population in their respective states. In Meerut, a tier-2 city located 100 kms from Delhi and considered a part of the National Capital Region (NCR), 7.35 lakh doses were administered in a population of 34.43 lakh. However, there are at least 20 districts in UP with higher population that received lesser allocation. Take Sultanpur and Hardoi for example. The two districts have significantly larger population, but received only a third of the dose allocated to Meerut. 21 copper plate inscriptions found in Srisailam E x p r e s s N e w s Se r v i c e @Kurnool Copper plate inscriptions dating back to the 14th or 16th century were found near Ghanta Matham of Sri Bhramaramba Mallikarjuna Swamy temple in Srisailam on Sunday . Initially workers found 18 inscriptions while , digging the ground as part of the renovation works. Three more inscriptions were unearthed later. The inscriptions are in Sanskrit and Telugu. A total of 35 inscriptions have been found during the renovation works till now. “We are trying to decipher the inscriptions dating back to the reign of Vijayanagara, Gajapathi and Reddy Kings,” Srisailam temple EO KS Rama Rao told TNIE. After conducting an inquest, the inscriptions were stored in the temple strongroom. The EO said they found gold and silver coins during renovation works earlier. A Dhyana Mandir was unearthed in September, 2020. The temple management has proposed to set up a museum to exhibit the inscriptions, gold and silver coins found during renovation works on the temple premises. A proposal in this regard has been sent to the State government for approval, the EO added. Authorities say the situation is similar in Bulandshahar, another UP district adjoining Delhi. According to Bulandshahar NATIONWIDE june 12 june 13 Fresh cases 84,332 Recoveries Deaths 1,21,311 1,32,062 4,002 3,303 80,834 June 12 31,67,961 doses June 13 34,84,239 doses Total doses: 25,31,95,048 Jab-o-meter Take your shot district immunisation officer Dr Rohitash Yadav, the trend is most visible in vaccination centers at Khurja, Sikandarabad and Anupshahr. “Almost 15-20% beneficiaries in these three towns are actually from Delhi, Ghaziabad and Gautam Buddha Nagar. Owing to shortage of slots in their areas, they booked slots here,” he said. The status is similar in Alwar, another city falling within the NCR. It reported over 11 lakh vaccinations, which is the second highest in Rajasthan af- ter Jaipur. And Alwar is not the most populous of Rajasthan’s 33 districts. Another example of this disparity was recorded in Pune. The city received 33 lakh doses against a population of nearly 94 lakh, but bigger agglomerates like Thane (over 1.1 crore population) received only 19.21 lakh doses.

Action will be initiated against all those involved in it. The YSRC government will not spare any encroacher of government land,’’ said Tourism Minister M Srinivasa Rao E x p r e s s N e w s Se r v i c e @Visakhapatnam In yet another weekend drive against encroachments, the district administration reclaimed 49.05 acres of land worth `791.41 crore at Tunglam, Jaggarajupeta and Kurmannapalem on Sunday . According to the district administration, encroachments on 430.81 acres of land have been removed so far. The total market value of the reclaimed land is put at `4,291.41 crore. A team of revenue officials, led by Gajuwaka tahsildar Sekhar Rao, took possession of the land after removing encroachments. A large contin- gent of police accompanied the revenue team during removal of encroachments. Speaking to TNIE, Sekhar Rao said notices were served on encroachers three days ago. “There are several complaints of encroachment of government lands. The drive against encroachments will continue,” he said. The drive, however, raised political dust with the opposition TDP alleging that it was statewide june 12 Fresh cases Recoveries Deaths Samples tested june 13 6,952 6,770 11,577 12,492 58 58 1,08,616 1,02,876 nothing but targeting their leaders. The YSRC retorted saying that encroachers of government lands would not be spared. During the drive, structures built by Palla Sankar Rao, brother of Vizag TDP president Palla Srinivasa Rao, were also demolished. “I purchased the land at Tunglam from 56 farmers in 1992. The revenue officials reached the site at 2 am and demolished the structures without serving any notice,” he said. Sankar Rao alleged that his brother was targeted as he refused to join the ruling YSRC. “This is nothing but political P4 vendetta,’’ he said.
