Magellan predicts early May end for Italy’s COVID-19 cases

The data primarily looked at the spread of the virus across the world, and attempted to create a predictive model.The study predominantly focused upon the eight key jurisdictions that Stanleybet operates in: England, Denmark, Belgium, Romania, Croatia, Malta, Cyprus and Italy – one of the hardest hit countries in the world.According to the Magellan model, the peak of the virus in Italy was reached on 27 March after which the number of infected individuals is expected to decrease. Data suggests that the number of new contagions in Italy could ‘reach zero level at any time between 3 and 11 May’.Dr Garrisi, the Stanleybet CEO and creator of the Magellan mathematical model, issued a warning to tamper some of the study’s optimism. Through a phone interview from Malta, he said: “I am confident that the predictions developed by us will prove substantially correct. However, there is a risk. In fact, our model shows that the contagion trend in the coming days should collapse exponentially.“In other words, we will see the number of new infected individuals decrease by the day with astonishing speed, but the curve will thereafter slow down and tend to become flat with an enervating “swing behaviour” equally changing by the day, to reach the zero contagion point at the beginning of May. It is, therefore, to be expected that in the coming days between 7 and 15 April a mood of euphoria will prevail, as if the problem was eventually overcome.“Mind you, this is not the case. A relaxation of the strictest compliance with the prescriptions of the authorities could result in a fresh uptake of the pandemic instead. All of us must absolutely stay at home, not only until the day when the absence of new contagions is declared, but safely well beyond that point in time.“Provided all of us remain compliant and strict in observing the prescriptions of the authorities, the gambling sector may start to think of a re-opening of physical operations within the end of May.”last_img read more

(Jan. 19, 2020)–Winless in her last eight races at shorter distances, Samantha Siegel’s Ms Peintour relished a mile and one half on turf today at Santa Anita as she rallied to register a comfortable two length win in the Grade III, $100,000 Astra Stakes under Brice Blanc.  Trained by Brian Koriner, the 5-year-old daughter of Paynter got the distance in 2:26.71.Well beaten when close to the early pace in the Grade III Robert J. Frankel Stakes at 1 1/8 miles on turf here Dec. 28, Ms Peintour was attentive to the Astra pace while well in-hand, in fourth position about two lengths off Lostintranzlation heading into the far turn.At that point, Blanc angled out, rallied three-deep turning for home and took command a furlong from home while winning as much best.“After her last race, I told Brian I think she wants to run further,” said Blanc.  “She stays very steady and even though she doesn’t have a big turn of foot, she keeps trying.  This race came up at a mile and half and it was perfect.  I’m very happy to be right and I’m glad to have this opportunity with Brian and Samantha.”Off at 13-1 in a field of seven older fillies and mares, Ms Peintour paid $28.40, $9.60 and $4.00.“She’s always loped out strong,” said Koriner, who bagged his third win of the day.  “She doesn’t have that turn of foot, but she’s acted like she wants to go and go.  We thought if Brice could get the jump on them today, we wouldn’t have horses finishing like they do at shorter distances.”Bred in Kentucky, Ms Peintour is out of the Dynaformer mare Dyna’s Destiny.  Although she was Grade II stakes placed at age three, today marked her first stakes win and her third overall from 13 career starts.  With the winner’s share of $60,000, she increased her earnings to $166,534.Fourth turning for home, favored Tiny Tina rallied but had to settle for second money, finishing one length in front of Siberian Iris.  Ridden by Flavien Prat, “Tiny” was off at 7-5 and paid $3.00 and $2.20.Irish-bred Siberian Iris, the second choice at 8-5 with Drayden Van Dyke up, paid $2.40 to show.Fractions on the race were 24.48, 48.20, 1:12.96, 1:36.95, 2:01.78 and 2:26.71.One of LA’s longtime top sportscasters, KNBC 4’s Mario Solis, was on hand to make the Astra Trophy presentation.last_img read more
