It’s so unhygienic.“Our rates keep going up and the health of the public is at risk.” Sam Madsen with her sons Toby, 5, and Louis, 2, in front of the public toilets at Gregory Park in Milton, Mrs Madsen is concerned that Brisbane City Council do not provide soap in their park-based public toilets. (AAP Image/Claudia Baxter)BRISBANE City Council has admitted to skimping on handwash in public parks despite health warnings the rate of influenza is the worst the country has ever seen.Council revealed in more than 2000 parks across Brisbane, due to the vandalism of dispensers in public places and daily maintenance requirements, it does not provide handwash in bathrooms in parks.Brisbane City Councillor Nicole Johnston (Tennyson ward) said she was “shocked” to hear Council did not provide handwash in park toilets.“There are so few public toilets for our community and they are in huge demand,” Ms Johnston said.“From a hygiene and safety point of view, soap is essential.”With school holidays underway and influenza spreading rapidly, Queensland Health has reported 44,727 cases of influenza this year.There have been 31,392 cases of influenza A reported, and 13,335 were influenza B.So far this year, there have been 4759 public hospital admissions across the state for influenza, and 548 of those required intensive care.Ms Johnston said it was a huge problem Council had not invested the necessary funds to properly maintain toilet infrastructure.The disclosure has outraged parents who say they pay a premium to live in suburbs close to parks and continue to see rates rise.

How do you encourage safe hygiene practice if there’s no handwash in these public spaces?” she said.Sinnamon Park mother-of-three Emelia Chalker said Rocks Riverside Park at Sinnamon Park, where she spends a lot of time with her children, also had no handwash.“It’s such a big park, I can’t understand why there is no soap,” she said.“We pay rates and don’t get good facilities, it makes me angry.“This is how the flu can spread easily.”A Queensland Health spokesman said diseases including influenza and gastrointestinal infections could be spread through contact with people and contaminated surfaces, particularly in populated public areas.“Regular and thorough handwashing is the most effective way of removing potentially harmful germs and protecting yourself against illnesses, especially after using the bathroom, changing nappies or helping a child go to the toilet and before eating,” the spokesman said.Ms Johnston said she would raise the issue further to ensure handwash was back in public toilets.A Brisbane City Council spokesman said: “Council maintains more than 2,000 parks as part of our commitment to keeping Brisbane clean, green and sustainable.Due to the vandalism of dispensers in public places and daily maintenance requirements, Council does not provide hand wash in bathrooms in parks”.

EPL: Harry Kane bags brace as Spurs beat Newcastle

first_imgHarry Kane went past 200 club goals to hand Jose Mourinho a first Premier League win at St James’ Park at the eighth attempt as Tottenham beat Newcastle 3-1.The England captain brought up the milestone before his 15th league goal of the season took him past 20 in all competitions for the sixth successive campaign and clinched the points after Matt Ritchie’s piledriver had cancelled out Son Heung-min’s opener. In the process, he ended former Chelsea and Manchester United manager Mourinho’s barren run on Tyneside.Victory kept Spurs in the hunt for European qualification, while a third successive defeat for Steve Bruce’s men dented his hopes of beating the 45 points the Magpies managed last season under predecessor Rafael Benitez.Newcastle started in determined mood with Miguel Almiron seeing a sixth-minute shot deflected wide after Allan Saint-Maximin, DeAndre Yedlin and Jonjo Shelvey had combined to allow Emil Krafth to cross from the right.Almiron skied his attempt from the resulting corner and Shelvey warmed keeper Hugo Lloris’ hands with an eighth-minute free-kick before heading wastefully over from Ritchie’s inviting cross nine minutes later.The visitors started to work their way into the game without troubling keeper Martin Dubravka, but with Shelvey’s range of passing and Saint-Maximin’s trickery repeatedly stretching their defence, they continued to look vulnerable at the back. Newcastle started in determined mood, with Miguel Almiron seeing a sixth-minute shot deflected wide after Allan Saint-Maximin, DeAndre Yedlin and Jonjo Shelvey had combined to allow Emil Krafth to cross from the right.Almiron skied his attempt from the resulting corner and Shelvey warmed keeper Hugo Lloris’ hands with an eighth-minute free-kick before heading wastefully over from Ritchie’s inviting cross nine minutes later.The visitors started to work their way into the game without troubling keeper Martin Dubravka, but with Shelvey’s range of passing and Saint-Maximin’s trickery repeatedly stretching their defence, they continued to look vulnerable at the back.But it was Newcastle who cracked first when, with 27 minutes gone, Fabian Schar overran the ball as he tried to play out from the back, inviting Lucas Moura to intercept, and he, Kane and Giovani Lo Celso shifted it on to Son, who cut inside before firing into the bottom corner through Yedlin’s legs.It would have been 2-0 on the half-hour had Dubravka not thrown himself to his left to turn away Son’s deflected effort from distance, but Lloris had to get down at his near post to turn away Saint-Maximin’s shot after opting to punch a high ball which Ben Davies sliced back into the danger area. Dwight Gayle saw a glancing header from Shelvey’s cross come back off the post, with Lloris beaten two minutes later.But his side was level within 11 minutes of the restart when Serge Aurier, playing just two days after the death of his brother Christopher, could only help the ball into Ritchie’s path after substitute Valentino Lazaro had surged into the box, and he lashed an unstoppable shot across Lloris and inside the far post.Newcastle, however, had been level for just four minutes when Steven Bergwijn announced his arrival from the bench with a pinpoint cross for Kane to outjump Krafth and head past Dubravka, reaching his landmark.Lazaro blasted into the side-netting with 18 minutes remaining, but Kane wrapped up the win at the death when, after Dubravka had parried substitute Erik Lamela’s shot, he stooped to head home the rebound.RelatedPosts EPL: Son fires four past Southampton EPL: Newcastle set to extend winning streak Tottenham sign £25m Sergio Reguilon Tags: Jose MourinhoNewcastle UnitedSt james’ ParkTottenham Hotspurlast_img read more
