Pablo Gállego will play the Clausura final in the First League of Nicaragua. The Huesca forward, the only Spanish footballer who continues to work in times of a coronavirus pandemic, has not only entertained the situation with his goals; it has also stretched its hegemony as much as possible. Managua FC, club for which he signed in the summer of last year, prevailed (4-2) in the capital derby against Walter Ferretti and will face Real Estelí in the tie for the title.After the 0-0 obtained in the first leg, Managua arrived at the National stadium with the obligation to win. The first part was an authentic ode to football. A round-trip match that went to halftime with a draw to two after Walter Ferretti almost instantly matched every shot of the ‘blue lions’. The second act, however, showed who the true pride of the capital is at present: Peralta, in the 73rd minute, and Pablo Gállego, five from the end, put Managua FC ahead, who confirmed his presence in the final for the fourth consecutive tournament and won a ticket for the next Concacaf Champions League. Pablo Gállego once again demonstrated why he is a talisman player: when the Spanish striker scores, Managua FC never loses. So it was for the eighth time this season. The Spanish now faces a double confrontation against Real Estelí -the dates are still to be confirmed-, the club that led him to a country, Nicaragua, where he confesses to being “living a dream”. Against the ‘northern train’ he has already scored two goals this year. Will his legend continue to grow in the final?
A 73-year-old pensioner on the West Coast of Demerara (WCD) was forced to seek alternative healthcare after she was denied medical attention at Uitvlugt Estate Dispensary on Friday during her monthly visit.The Uitvlugt Sugar EstateRamrajie Singh, who suffers from a heart condition and hypertension, was scheduled to make her visit on Thursday but owing to the fact that she was not feeling well, she opted to visit the facility the following day.“I’m a regular patient at the GuySuCo (Guyana Sugar Corporation) dispensary. I’m a heart patient and I suffer from hypertension. Thursday was my day to go to clinic but I was sick and I couldn’t make it to go. I had to go and collect my pension today so I said I would go over to the clinic because it is in the same building,” she told Guyana Times.Upon arriving at the facility, the woman was reportedly told by a medical staff that they could not aid her on the said day.The medical personnel claimed that she missed her scheduled date and refused to attend to Singh, despite the woman explaining that she was unwell.“When I go over to the dispensary, the medic in charge refuse to look at me or give me anything. She said I was supposed to come yesterday (Thursday) at the clinic. I told her I haven’t been able to come. I go to her twice and she said she can’t look after me. I worked in the estate and I’m very disappointed. What bothers me is that I am a regular clinic patient. People were coming in without any emergency and she looked after them,” Singh recalled.Meanwhile, the elderly woman was given a date to return to the clinic on October 10. She argued that for one month, she would be denied her services and medications attributable to slackness on the part of the health officials.This publication contacted the medic of the facility on Friday, who denied that such an incident occurred but referred all questions to the personnel manager of the estate.
