New York News About Jakarta Flooding

From The New York Times:

“We have to be alert for diseases like typhoid, those transmitted by rats and respiratory infections,” said Health Minister Siti Fadilah Supari. “Hopefully, there will be no dysentery.”

He urged people to try to keep clean to avoid spreading disease. “We know
it’s hard for the residents under the circumstances, but they have to,”
he said.

Note how the reporter confused the Health Minister's Gender to be a "he" when in fact she is a "her". Yes, Newspapers get lots of things wrong all the time, even The New York Times.
