A retired pediatric nurse, Mrs Amarachi Ozor, on Thursday, urged parents to always protect their children under five years against cold, as the rains increase in Enugu.
Ozor, a retired Senior Nurse with Uwani District Hospital, Enugu, gave this advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Enugu.
According to her, it is necessary to protect the children against cold because they are vulnerable to it.
She noted that the developing immune systems of the children under five years were not strong enough to fight or keep off infections.
“Children are yet to have the chance to build up immunity against the many different infections in circulation.
“Upper respiratory infections, which sometimes occurs during the rainy season are caused by viruses that spread through droplet transmission from coughs or sneezes, and contact with contaminated objects,” she said.
Ozor noted that most cold symptoms in babies were mild, including runny nose, nasal congestion, sneezing, mild fever, dry cough, loss of appetite among others.
The retired nurse called on parents to consult a pediatrician whenever their babies present any of these symptoms.
She advised mothers to immunise their children when due, and always protect them with sweaters.
Ozor stressed the need to keep their children’s feet and heads warm with thick socks and head wears during cold in order to avoid the symptoms associated with cold weather.

La Liga president admits match times could change in hot weather
La Liga has taken the unusual step of including temperature predictions in its fixture lists for the remainder of the Spanish football season.
La Liga president Javier Tebas said: “We have worked with the historical (average for time of year) temperatures and with the 15-day forecast.”
Both numbers can be seen alongside each game in the fixture list on La Liga’s web page.
The kick-off time causing most concern is the 1 p.m. (1100 GMT) slot.

“If the weather changes and the temperature rises, we will move the game to a 5 p.m. slot.

German weather service records one of sunniest springs in nearly 70 years
BERLIN, May 29 (Xinhua)– The frequent influence of high-pressure areas had brought one of the sunniest springs in Germany since the beginning of recording in 1951, Germany‘s National Meteorological Service (DWD) announced on Friday.
With 705 hours of sunshine between March and May, almost eight hours per day, the long-term average of 467 hours was exceeded by around 50 percent, according to a first evaluation of data from around 2,000 measuring stations.
Spring 2020 in Germany was “extremely sunny, quite warm and much too dry,” DWD noted. Germany was “predominantly in the range of warm air masses, few cold air inrushes were mostly of short duration.”
This spring in Germany was also one of the six springs with the lowest rainfall since 1881, according to DWD.
Already in April, Joachim Rukwied, president of the German Farmers’ Association (DBV) warned that “it could again be a very difficult year for German agriculture if it continues to remain so dry.”
German Minister of Food and Agriculture Julia Kloeckner also stressed that “another year of drought would hit many farms very hard” and added that the concerns were taken seriously and the situation would be monitored.
According to DWD, temperatures in April had been well above average but were followed by temperatures slightly below average in May, although some weather stations in the south of Germany had “recorded up to seven summer days with more than 25 degrees Celsius.”

Austria to pay artists 1,000 euros a month to weather Covid-19 crisis
Self-employed artists in Austria are eligible for monthly pay-outs of 1,000 euros ($1,100) to protect their livelihoods in the current COVID-19 crisis, the government announced on Thursday, responding to pressure from the cultural sector.
The government set up a 90-million-euro fund to help around 15,000 artists during the second half of this year.
“We are acknowledging that the disruption of cultural life will last more than just one or two months,’’ Culture Minister and Vice-Chancellor, Werner Kogler, told a press conference in Vienna.
The announcement came one day after Finance Minister, Gernot Bluemel, said that he had earmarked 25 million euros to cover losses for film productions that were stopped because of the pandemic.
The government is also planning to aid larger cultural institutions.
The coalition between conservatives and Greens has drawn up schemes in recent days to ramp up cultural life after the lockdown period after numerous artists protested that they were being forgotten while other sectors of the economy reopened.
The Green Secretary of State for Cultural Affairs, Ulrike Lunacek, stepped down amid the criticism and was replaced last week by Andrea Mayer, a former senior official in the Culture Ministry.

NASA, SpaceX postpone historic astronauts launch for weather reason
NASA and SpaceX postponed historic launch of two astronauts to space from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Wednesday due to bad weather.
“Due to the weather conditions, the launch is scrubbing,” NASA tweeted.
The crewed mission will be the first time since 2011 that American astronauts launch on an American rocket from American soil to the International Space Station (ISS).
SpaceX said the launch was delayed due to unfavorable weather in the flight path.
The next launch opportunity is scheduled on Saturday, May 30 at 15:22 Eastern Time.
“No launch for today – safety for our crew members is our top priority,” NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine tweeted.
The countdown was halted less than 17 minutes before the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket was due to lift off from historic Launch Complex 39A at the Kennedy Space Center.
Later the propellant has been offloaded from the rocket, the launch escape system has been disarmed, and the two astronauts safely exited the vehicle, according to NASA.
“As the egress team assists astronauts out of the capsule, we are looking at a 50 percent chance of favorable weather for Saturday’s launch,” NASA tweeted.
A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will carry the Crew Dragon spacecraft and veteran NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley to orbit.
The spacecraft is scheduled to dock to the ISS about 24 hours after launch.
After successfully docking, Behnken and Hurley will be welcomed aboard station and will become members of the Expedition 63 crew. They will perform tests on Crew Dragon in addition to conducting research and other tasks with the space station crew.
This is SpaceX’s final test flight for NASA’s Commercial Crew Program and will provide critical data on the performance of the Falcon 9 rocket, Crew Dragon spacecraft, and ground systems, as well as in-orbit, docking, and landing operations.
The test flight also will provide valuable data toward certification of SpaceX’s crew transportation system for regular flights carrying astronauts to and from the space station.
