02 NEWS FRIDAY OCTOBER 8 2021 NTNE01Z01MA - V1 NT Health makes recall NATHANIEL CHAMBERS NT HEALTH has put out an urgent medical recall for MiniMed 640G and 670G insulin pumps after potentially harmful defects were found. The MiniMed 600 series insulin pump comes with a pump retainer ring which is designed to lock the reservoir in the insulin pump, however there are reports of loose reservoirs that no longer lock. If the ring is damaged, loose or missing and the reservoir is inserted while the infusion set is connected to the body, it could result in rapid infusion of insulin, which may cause hypoglycemia. It is advised that users visit http://ow.ly/a0li50Gnn2V or call the Medtronic Global Help Line 1800 777 808 to receive a replacement pump at no charge. Models recalled: MMT-1711, MMT-1712, MMT-1762, MMT-1782, all pumps with clear ring, ARTG 95763 and ARTG 308140.

A vibrant young man Sameer Manandhar died in a crash on Tuesday. Picture: Instagram FRIENDS of a budding Darwin chef who lost his life in a tragic crash on Tuesday have described him as everyones little brother. Sameer Manandhar, 22, died near the Noonamah Tavern on the Stuart Hwy on Tuesday night after a Ford Ranger collided with the motorcycle he was riding. Mr Manandhar was a chef and much-loved team member of the Hot Tamale team. With his dream of studying cookery in mind, Mr Manandhar travelled to Australia at the age of 18 from his home country of Nepal. He is being remembered as a happy and sincere young man. As the community mourns in despair, a fundraiser to repatriate Mr Manandhars body back to his family in Nepal has raised tens of thousands of dollars. The cost of the repatriation was estimated to be $25,000, which was raised in a tear-jerking two-hour period mostly by the Nepalese community around Australia. Nepalese Association of Northern Territory president Yuba Raj Panta said it was a tragic moment for all of the Nepali community in the NT to hear of the untimely loss of Mr Manandhar. As per familys request to repatriate the body to Nepal, Nepali community here in Darwin started the fundraising, which received incredible support from the wider community members all around Australia, Mr Panta said. Sameer was a humble, vibrant, helpful member of the community and a kind human being. Hot Tamale, a Mexican restaurant at the Waterfront, closed its doors on Wednesday and Thursday out of respect for the chef. In a statement the restaurant said he was a little brother to those that worked with him. Sameer, had the most beautiful, kind-hearted personality, which made him everyones close friend, everyones little brother, the statement read. While funds have been raised to repatriate his body, Hot Tamale is rallying to raise funds to help pay off the loan his parents took out to send him to Australia. Sameer had not yet been able to visit his family since he left, four years ago, the statement read. Mr Panta would like to thank each and every person for their support during this hard time.
