Topics : South Korea’s ongoing recovery from the first major coronavirus outbreak outside China paints a stark contrast to many other countries where metropolises remain sealed off and sweeping stay-at-home orders are in place.”I’m a member of a community football club and we went out to play on Saturday for the first time in two months,” said Kim Tae-hyung, a 31-year-old power plant engineer living in Seoul. “We were wearing a mask while we played, still worried about the coronavirus, but the weather was nice and I felt so refreshed.”South Korea extended its social distancing policy for another 16 days on Sunday but offered some relief for religious and sports facilities previously subjected to strict restrictions.The decision is aimed at cautiously reopening Asia’s fourth-largest economy as daily infections continue to hover around or less than 20, most arriving from overseas. South Koreans are returning to work and crowding shopping malls, parks, golf courses and some restaurants as South Korea relaxes social distancing rules amid a continued downward trend in coronavirus cases.A growing list of companies, including SK Innovation and Naver, has ended or eased their work from home policy in recent weeks, though many continue to apply flexible working hours and limit travel and face-to-face meetings.Parks, mountains and golf courses brimmed with visitors over the weekend, while shopping malls and restaurants were slowly returning to normal. Seoul’s defense ministry also said on Monday that the military is resuming medical screening for candidates while considering easing restrictions on travel and guest visits.The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) reported 13 new cases on Monday, a day after posting just eight — the first single digit daily rise since the Feb. 28 peak of 909. The death toll stands at 236.Health authorities urged vigilance, warning new clusters could still emerge at any time, especially after South Korea held the first national election last week since the epidemic began, and ahead of long holidays starting next week.Schools have yet to open and are holding online classes.An official at SK Innovation, a battery maker, said about 80% of its employees will be back this week and they will get a temperature check at the entrance and maintain distance in the office.Naver Corp., which operates South Korea’s largest web portal, said it is allowing less than half its employees to come into the office, while employees at Netmarble , a mobile gaming firm, come into the office three days a week.”We have installed thermal cameras, full-body sterilizers, and table partitions at cafeterias,” Naver said in a statement.Authorities were on alert after a 58-year-old man living in the second largest city of Busan was confirmed with the virus on Saturday and had voted in the election, attended Easter church service and visited restaurants while running symptoms.More than 1,000 people are now quarantined or being checked after coming in contact with that man and his daughter, who is a nurse and has also tested positive, city officials said.”We’re looking at the trend of group infections though it has mostly been small clusters over the past two weeks,” Vice Health Minister Kim Gang-lip told a briefing.”If we let our guard down in social distancing, [the virus] could come back and greatly hurt and endanger our society.”

“However, nobody knows how things are going to develop next year.”Garuda Indonesia Group, which includes low-cost carrier Citilink, own 20 aircraft and is leasing 190 aircraft with an average age of 7.8 years, according to the company’s data.In comparison, US major airlines’ average fleet age was 13.3 years in 2019, data from the US Bureau of Transportation Statistics show.Moreover, the airline has seen its aircraft productivity fall as its operation have been disrupted by international border closures and social restrictions. Garuda’s average aircraft utilization rate, which determines fleet productivity, fell to around 4 hours and 19 minutes per day in July, down from 8 hours and 14 minutes a year earlier, according to the company’s monthly operational report.Garuda Indonesia Group saw a 54.4 percent year-on-year (yoy) drop in passenger numbers to 6.89 million in the first seven months of this year.The airline suffered a US$712.73 million loss in the first half of this year after booking net profit of $24.11 million in the same period last year.To further slash the company’s expenditure, Irfan said, Garuda was renegotiating aircraft leasing contracts with lessors.“When the pandemic hit, we contacted our lessors and renegotiated our leasing schemes, debt restructuration, leasing cost restructuration and [more],” he said during the interview, adding that the renegotiation efforts had shown positive progress.“Some of the lessors have verbally agreed [to the renegotiated terms]. We only need to write the legal papers and we can execute it once our payment arrears are paid.”Quoting a Mirae Asset Sekuritas research note published on Wednesday, Garuda revealed that it had managed to defer rental payments for 40 aircraft in the second quarter of this year, leading to a cost reduction of $100 million. Meanwhile, it has also renegotiated prices and tenor with 12 lessors to slash around $30 million off annual bills.Besides aircraft leasing renegotiation and purchase deferment, Irfan said the company was also proposing early retirement packages for employees to cut expenditure and prevent mass layoffs.“We keep our early retirement package proposals rolling and, as of today, around 500 employees have applied for the program, even though we haven’t executed it yet,” he said.Garuda’s operating expenses were down 22 percent yoy at $1.6 billion in the January-to-June period this year.However, the airline posted negative equity on the year’s second quarter at $80.8 million, compared to its positive equity by the end of 2019 at $720.6 million.Read also: Domestic market to be driver of recovery, Garuda chief saysThe government has intervened to keep the company afloat by vowing to provide Rp 8.5 trillion ($583 million) in the form of a Mandatory Convert Bond (MCB) for Garuda, which was approved by the House of Representatives (DPR) in July.The MCB for the airline is expected to have a tenor of three years, with state-owned infrastructure financing company PT Sarana Multi Infrastruktur (SMI) projected to act as a buyer of the bond and eventually a shareholder of the company.However, during the interview, Irfan said analysts at Garuda projected that the funds would not be enough to turn the company’s financial condition around. It also agreed to repay the MCB funds to the government in the future.In a research note published on Wednesday, Mirae Asset Sekuritas research analyst Lee Young Jun expected the airline to post losses of $1.1 billion in 2020 and $161.5 million in 2021.“We think the seat load factor will stay at the level of 40 percent at best until the end of 2020 as new COVID-19 cases are continuously hitting new record highs,” the note reads, adding that the extended large scale-social restrictions (PSBB) would prompt people to avoid traveling.Shares in Garuda, traded on the IDX with the code GIAA, were up 4.31 percent on Monday at 2.51 p.m. as the main gauge, the Jakarta Composite Index (JCI), also surged by 2.56 percent. The stock has lost 51.41 percent of its value so far this year. Topics : National flag carrier Garuda Indonesia is not planning to buy any new aircraft this year as the COVID-19 crisis has strained the company’s finances, the airline’s top executive has said.Garuda president director Irfan Setiaputra told The Jakarta Post in an exclusive interview on Thursday that much of the company’s fleet was still grounded because of falling passenger numbers during the ongoing health crisis.“What is the world going to say if we have a new aircraft while there are many aircraft parked on the ground? It doesn’t make any sense,” he said during the interview, adding that the airline’s fleet was still relatively new.

Eddie Hearn has claimed Mike Tyson’s camp have “reached out” to him to promote the 53-year-old’s sensational comeback. After Hearn promoted Paul’s loss to KSI, three months later his brother Jake also made his pro debut beating internet rival AnEsonGib. The promoter admitted the interest and numbers generated from the YouTubers boxing was great enough for him to promote KSI fighting Jake, but insisted he would not stage regular events involving the social media stars. But with Tyson – who retired in 2005 with a record of 50-6-2 – claiming to be feeling in his prime, Hearn questions whether bringing the ageing heavyweight back to the ring damages the sport’s integrity. It comes as 57-year-old Evander Holyfield, who twice beat Tyson, also announced plans to make a comeback and revealed he would face Iron Mike for a third time but only if it was for charity. Hearn added: “There’s a fine line, and I’ve crossed it a couple of times, sort of with the integrity of the sport versus entertainment and delivering numbers. read also:Old enemies: Holyfield set to stage ‘trilogy’ fight with Tyson “Our job is to deliver numbers for our broadcasters.

He has received numerous big-money proposals – including from rugby star Sonny Bill Williams and even Tyson Fury’s dad John – but will only entertain more serious offers. As SunSport revealed, Tyson is only willing to step back into the ring for the first time in 15 years if it is against a “bona fide” opponent as he does not want to disrespect the sport he loves. And Anthony Joshua’s promoter Hearn – who staged the rematch between YouTubers KSI and Logan Paul last November – has been in talks with the heavyweight legend’s team about working on his remarkable comeback. He told British Boxing TV: “They reached out to me. I had a call, a message, someone reached out to me and said ‘I wanna talk about Mike’. “I would like to see it. But I kind of feel like, and I know people will say ‘Well, you did the YouTube fight with KSI’ but is it a bit irresponsible to let a 53-year-old legend get back in the ring? “I don’t know. He looks pretty dangerous, but I think it’s just the fascination of could he actually go in at 53 and do some damage in the division? Maybe, maybe not.”
Press Association A statement on www.evertonfc.com read: ” Left-back Leighton Baines has undergone a successful ankle operation but is set to be missing for the next 12 to 14 weeks.” Everton revealed just ahead of their Premier League opener against Watford on Saturday that Baines had injured his ankle in training. It is the same ankle on which Baines had surgery in May, a procedure that forced him to miss the final two matches of last season. Toffees boss Roberto Martinez said of Baines’ setback after the 2-2 draw with Watford: ”We don’t know how long he will be out for, but it has been a real disaster. ”We were preparing for the Watford game and in one incident in training, he blocks the ball and it hits him in exactly the same place where he had surgery a few months back. ”It was devastating, because he had worked so hard and looked stronger than ever – I don’t think I had seen him looking as powerful and refreshed in the last two seasons. Then there was this big knock.” Baines could now miss over a dozen Premier League matches for Everton, including the Merseyside derby against Liverpool, as well as five England matches. Roy Hodgson’s men face San Marino, Switzerland, Estonia and Lithuania in September and October as part of their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign, while November 17’s friendly against France could also come too soon for Baines. The England and Toffees full-back went under the knife on Thursday to correct the problem he sustained in training on the eve of the Barclays Premier League campaign. Everton confirmed that the injury had been repaired but that the 30-year-old now faces a lengthy period of rehabilitation before he can return to first-team action. Leighton Baines is set to be sidelined for around three months after undergoing ankle surgery, Everton have announced.
