WHO declares escalating Ebola outbreak an international emergency

first_imgWith cases rapidly mounting in four West African countries, the World Health Organization (WHO) today declared the Ebola outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC), a designation that allows the agency to issue recommendations for travel restrictions but also sends a strong message that more resources need to be mobilized to bring the viral disease under control.”The outbreak is moving faster than we can control it,” said WHO Director-General Margaret Chan at a press conference in Geneva, Switzerland, this morning. Chan said the declaration of a PHEIC serves as “an urgent call for international solidarity.” The affected countries don’t have the resources to battle the disease alone, and neither does her agency. With three major humanitarian crises on its hands—in Syria, South Sudan, and the Central African Republic—as well as three important disease outbreaks—Ebola, the H7N9 influenza virus, and MERS—WHO is “extremely stretched,” she said. So are organizations such as Doctors Without Borders, which do much of the control work on the ground.This is only the third time the health agency has issued a PHEIC declaration since the new International Health Regulations (IHR), a global agreement on the control of diseases, were adopted in 2005. The previous two instances were in 2009, for the H1N1 influenza pandemic, and in May for the resurgence of polio.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)The WHO declaration is “an alarm call that will hopefully stimulate the richer countries to provide more money and personnel,” says Preben Aavitsland, a Norwegian epidemiologist who helped draft the IHR. But Aavitsland says that alarm should have gone out earlier. “In my view it should have happened months ago, when the infection spread to other countries than Guinea,” he says.With 1779 cases and 961 deaths officially recorded as of Wednesday, the outbreak in Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Nigeria is by far the worst for Ebola in history. There were only 425 cases in the most serious outbreak thus far, in 2000 to 2001 in Uganda*, and many other outbreaks were contained after just a few dozen cases.What’s more, WHO’s official tally is probably far too low, one expert told a congressional hearing yesterday in Washington, D.C. “Our epidemiologists and medical personnel believe that these numbers represent 25 to 50% of what is happening,” Ken Isaacs, a vice president at Samaritan’s Purse—the group that repatriated two staffers suffering from Ebola and helped provide an experimental treatment for them—told a hearing of the U.S. House of Representatives’ Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations. Chan today acknowledged that infected people often don’t seek care and that the real number of victims is probably higher.At yesterday’s hearing, Isaac labeled the international response to the outbreak as a “failure.” Doctors Without Borders and Samaritan’s Purse, where he oversees international programs and government relations, have provided the bulk of outside medical support so far, he stressed. “The international community was comfortable in allowing two relief agencies to provide all of the clinical care for the Ebola victims in three countries,” he charged. “It was not until July the 26th, when [U.S. patients] Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol were confirmed positive, that the world sat up and paid attention.”His organization’s epidemiologists predict that the disease soon will come out “with a fury” in Nigeria. “We’re going to see death tolls in numbers that we can’t imagine now,” he warned. “The truth is the cat is most likely already out of the bag.”Asked why WHO convened the emergency committee only this week, WHO Assistant Director-General Keiji Fukuda this morning said the organization was initially focused on coordinating the response on the ground and on raising awareness and drumming up political support, for instance at a meeting of health ministers in Accra in early July and a meeting with Chan and West African presidents last week. It was the spread of the virus to Nigeria that triggered WHO to call the committee’s meeting, Fukuda said.The declaration of a PHEIC came after the panel held a 4.5 hour teleconference on Wednesday and another 6-hour conference on Thursday, Fukuda said. The committee issued a range of specific recommendations for stopping the spread of the virus. Among other things, Ebola-affected countries should check every person leaving the country for possible signs of Ebola infection. “The exit screening should consist of, at a minimum, a questionnaire, a temperature measurement and, if there is a fever, an assessment of the risk that the fever is caused” by the Ebola virus, it said.Anybody who has an illness consistent with Ebola should not be allowed to travel, the panel said, unless as part of an appropriate medical evacuation. Neither should people who have been in contact with patients; they should be monitored for Ebola symptoms and fever for 21 days.Wider restrictions on travel—such as halting airline traffic—would be counterproductive, Fukuda said, because they would not help control the disease and would increase anxiety. “Most people who go to business meetings or family gatherings [in the affected countries] are at low risk of Ebola infection. So we don’t think a ban on that kind of travel makes any sense at all,” he said. “But it will have a lot of bad effects on the community.”With reporting by Jon Cohen and Kai Kupferschmidt. *Correction, 8 August, 8:55 a.m.: This story originally said the Ebola outbreak of 2000 to 2001 was in Sudan instead of Uganda.*Update, 8 August, 12:24 p.m.: This article has been updated to include the most recent case numbers, as of 6 August, which were released today.*The Ebola Files: Given the current Ebola outbreak, unprecedented in terms of number of people killed and rapid geographic spread, Science and Science Translational Medicine have made a collection of research and news articles on the viral disease freely available to researchers and the general public.last_img read more

Fit-again Mitchell Starc gearing up for tri-series in West Indies

first_imgTest opener Joe Burns has said Mitchell Starc has fully recovered from injury and will be in peak fitness for next month’s tri-nation series against the West Indies and South Africa in the Caribbean.Fast bowler Starc has been sidelined ever since he suffered a stress fraction of his foot last November, and was forced to undergo surgery.He recently resumed training and Burns said he looked close to top form while bowling off a full run-up at the National Cricket Centre here.CLOSE TO HIS BEST “He’s bowling very fast, very accurately and swinging it. I think he’s bowling close to his best,” Burns said on Friday.”There were some very scary days facing him but it’s just great to see him back on the park and bowling express speeds. He’s got that ability with the new ball to almost skid it off the lower wickets as well, so he’s still as challenging in those conditions as he is on the Australian wickets I reckon.”SPEARHEAD THE SEAM ATTACK AGAIN The 26-year-old left-arm seamer was last month named in the Australia squad for the tri-nations series which runs from June 3-26 in Guyana, St. Kitts and Nevis and Barbados.He will spearhead a seam attack which includes Josh Hazlewood, Nathan Coulter-Nile and John Hastings.Starc, who was outstanding during last year’s World Cup as Australia were crowned champions, has so far taken 90 wickets from 46 One-Day Internationals.If he takes 10 wickets in the next six outings, he will become the fastest bowler to reach triple figures in ODIs.advertisementlast_img read more

Iditarod 2019: Alaskan Native musher Pete Kaiser wins race in one of closest finishes ever

first_imgShare on Pinterest Kaiser, 31, reached the finish line just 12 minutes ahead of second-placed Leifseth Ulsom, 32, in one of the closest finishes in Iditarod history. It was Kaiser’s first Iditarod win.Crowds of cheering fans packed the city of Nome’s Front Street to watch Kaiser and his team sprint under the wooden arch that marks the end of the 1,000-mile (1,609km) Anchorage-to-Nome run.His total elapsed time was nine days, 12 hours and 39:06 minutes. It was far from the record time of eight days, 3:40 hours, set two years ago by three-time champion Mitch Seavey.Kaiser, who became the first Alaska Native musher since 2011 to win, pumped his arms into the air as he crossed the finish line, hugged his wife and small children and then reached into the crowd of well-wishers who had traveled from his southwestern Alaska hometown of Bethel.He credited the victory to years of preparation, “every little detail coming into play, and having a pinch of luck.”“I’m very, very fortunate to have the support system I have, the whole community of Bethel and the whole Kuskokwim River and all of western Alaska. It’s extremely humbling and motivates me every day to perform to my best,” he said at the finish line.

Photograph: Diana Haecker/Reuters Read more Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Iditarod The finish line on Nome’s Front Street was lined by big crowds who had braved Kaiser’s early arrival at 3.39am local time (11.39am GMT) amid stiff winds and blowing snow.Warm conditions, with heavy and wet snow, occasional rain and stretches of open water in areas that are usually frozen over at this time of year, hampered the 52 mushers in the race who were slowed to a soggy slog.For his victory, Kaiser will get $50,000, part of a total $500,000 prize purse and a new truck.Until Monday, a different musher had been the frontrunner. French-born Nicolas Petit of Girdwood, Alaska, had a significant lead over his competitors until his dogs stopped on a section of the Bering Sea coastline about 200 miles (322km) from Nome and refused to go on.Petit dropped out of the race Monday night, sending his dogs off the trail by snowmobile.Coming in third and fourth were the Iditarod’s top women, Jessie Royer of Fairbanks and Aliy Zirkle of Two Rivers, Alaska. Paige Drobny of Fairbanks was in seventh place, making this year’s Iditarod likely to be the first with three women in the top 10.Close finishes of less than an hour apart are unusual in ultra-endurance races like the Iditarod, but they have happened before. The closest was in 1978, when Dick Mackey came in one second ahead of Rick Swenson, with a winning time of 14 days, 18 hours, 52:24 minutes, his lead dog’s nose the first over the finish line, according to Iditarod records.The Iditarod, run every year since 1973, commemorates a 1925 medical mission that has become part of Alaska legend. At the time, Nome was stricken by a deadly diphtheria outbreak, and the remote Gold Rush town could be reached only by dog sled. Officials used a dog-sled relay to ferry lifesaving medicine to the town. Share on WhatsApp Alaska Pinterest Reuse this contentlast_img read more

Vine: Buddy Hield’s Clutch Block Of Darrell Davis Helps Send Oklahoma To The Sweet 16

first_imgBuddy Hield blocks Darrell Davis.Vine/Dan LyonsOklahoma’s Buddy Hield is this year’s Big 12 Player of the Year, and for good reason. The junior shooting guard does everything for the Sooners, and in tonight’s Round of 32 game against Dayton, that includes making a crucial block on a fast break lay-up attempt that could have cut the Oklahoma lead to two points. Dayton guard Darrell Davis stole the ball from OU’s Jordan Woodard, and immediately took off for the hoop. As he released the ball, Hield made a fantastic play to reject the shot out of his hand. Instead of a two-point game, Oklahoma was fouled and extended the lead.Oklahoma finished the game with a 72-66 win, and will face Michigan State in the Sweet 16 at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, NY.last_img read more

Navios Partners to Buy 14 Rickmers Boxships

first_imgzoom Greek shipowner and operator Navios Maritime Partners has agreed to acquire the entire container fleet consisting of fourteen ships from Rickmers Maritime for about USD 113 million.“We anticipate acquiring five 4,250 TEU vessels on May 15, 2017. These vessels are employed on charters that have staggered expirations in 2018 and early 2019 at a net daily charter rate of USD 26,850,” Angeliki Frangou, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Navios Partners, said.The average age of the fleet, which consists of eleven 4,250 TEU containerships and three 3,450 TEU vessels, is 9.5 years.“Our operating platform was attractive to the Trust and its lending banks because of our disciplined technical and commercial management and favorable operating costs. This acquisition demonstrates our ability to source proprietary deals, and we are continuing to seek exposure to the container sector,” Frangou continued.Navios Partners said that the acquisition, subject to a number of conditions, is being financed through a USD 20 million equity investment by Navios Partners and a secured loan facility under discussion.The company plans to acquire these vessels though a wholly owned subsidiary, Navios Partners Containers Inc., which will be an unrestricted subsidiary as defined in the credit agreement dated March 14, 2017, for the shipowner’s term loan B facility.Earlier in April, Rickmers Trust Management, the trustee-manager of Rickmers Maritime, said that its business would be wound up, as the company’s efforts to reach an agreement with lenders to restructure existing loans fell through.The trust was given until April 15 by the HSH Syndicate, comprising HSH Nordbank and DBS Bank, to come up with a new restructuring plan which would ensure a higher level of total recoveries than under a winding up of the trust.Rickmers Maritime said that the operation of the vessels in question is expected to remain unaffected by the proposed sale.last_img read more

Switching tags Investigation busts illegal polar bear exports

first_imgCanada’s wildlife police hope the kind of bust that halted a recent illegal shipment of polar bear rugs to China will soon be a vanishing breed.“We will create more control, more management and more security for every player in the market, so that the polar bear product in the beginning is the same one at the end,” said Jonathan Campagna, Environment Canada’s wildlife enforcement director for Quebec.Campagna spoke this week after a Quebec company pleaded guilty to three counts of illegally exporting polar bear rugs to China. An 18-month investigation also turned up another four hides from two other companies. The pelts were surrendered to officials without charges being laid.Fourrures Mont-Royal Inc. was fined $22,500. The value of all seven hides was $47,000.Polar bear hunting and the sale of bear parts, including hides, is strictly regulated.Quotas are set for each of Canada’s 13 populations. Tags are issued to Inuit hunters, who may harvest the bears themselves or sell the tag to a sport hunter, who must hire a local guide.The tags must accompany the bear carcass at every stage: from the kill to the preparation of the hide to the sale.In this case, Fourrures Mont-Royal pleaded guilty to switching tags from one bear to another.“There is a kind of advantage, sometimes, for a company to change a tag, to sell a more beautiful bear or a bigger bear than the tag is related to,” Campagna said.Illegal exporters have also bought tags and switched them to bears that didn’t have them at all, said Campagna.As well, there’s one bear population in Canada from which it has been illegal to export under any circumstances. That restriction was removed from the Baffin Bay population last June after the quota was reduced.The terms of the guilty plea by Fourrures don’t reveal which population the bears came from. Two of the rugs the animals were turned into were already in China.Two investigators worked full-time on the case, with occasional help from colleagues.“It was a hard investigation,” said Campagna. “There were a lot of details.”Such cases are rare, Campagna said, but Environment Canada is trying to make them rarer still.When hunters in Nunavut and the Northwest Territories register their kill at a local wildlife office, officials now insert a microchip into the hide and take fur and DNA samples.“When wildlife officers are doing the inspection, all this information will be available and they will be able to certify that the pelt is the same as it was in the beginning when the First Nations people killed the animal.”The regulation is expected to come soon to Arctic Quebec.Tag-switching is a new trick, said Ernest Cooper, an independent consultant on wildlife trade.“Other cases that we know about have typically been somebody trying to take a hide out without proper permits.”Still, Cooper said, illegal hunting and exporting of the bears is not widespread.“Inuit hunters are very cognizant of the law and the need to conserve species. I’m sure there’s some poaching, but I don’t think it’s significant.”Canada exports about 200 polar bear skins a year, mostly to China. Another 20 or 30 are exported as hunting trophies.That’s down from a peak of 400 in 2013, Cooper said.Prices remain strong. A polar bear hide averages about $6,000, but an exceptionally large or attractive pelt fetches more. One sold in 2013 for more than $21,000.— Follow Bob Weber on Twitter at @row1960last_img read more

PEI park should keep controversial British generals name Board recommends

first_imgAPTN National NewsCHARLOTTETOWN – Parks Canada is being advised to consider revising the name of a national park in Prince Edward Island to better reflect its Mi’kmaq history, but it has also received a recommendation that the name of a military officer who wanted to kill Aboriginal people with smallpox should remain.An excerpt from a meeting of the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada last September recommended that parks officials consult with the Mi’kmaq community to see if there is a historic name for Rocky Point, where the Port-la-Joye _ Fort Amherst historic site is located.John Joe Sark, a member of the Mi’kmaq Nation traditional government, has submitted Mi’kmaq names for Parks Canada to consider, but he says he won’t be satisfied until the name of General Jeffery Amherst is scrubbed from the historic site.“They talk on one side about truth and reconciliation, but when you tell them the truth, they don’t want to do anything about it,” says Sark. “You don’t right wrongs by keeping the name of a tyrant.”Sark has been campaigning for the name change since 2008, arguing that is insulting because Amherst’s goal was to wipe out Aboriginal peoples.The board said it discussed Sark’s request at length but ultimately determined that Amherst’s name should remain because of the location’s historical ties to the British government.In a letter dated April 9 to Environment Minister Catherine McKenna, Sark disputes this justification, saying there is no historic record of Amherst spending time at Port-la-Joye.Parks Canada was not immediately available for comment Sunday.Amherst, an officer in the British Army in the mid-1700s, is considered a key architect of British victories in the Seven Years’ War for control of New France territories in North America. Several places in the U.S. and Canada, such as Amherstburg, Ont., bear his name.Amherst College in Massachusetts said last month the British military commander would no longer appear in school communications or as an unofficial mascot. Lord Jeff _ as he was known around campus _ was seen as an oppressive figure who supported using blankets infected with smallpox to kill Aboriginal people.news@aptn.calast_img read more

UN regional centre for preventive diplomacy in Central Asia set to open

7 December 2007The United Nations Regional Centre for Preventive Diplomacy for Central Asia will be inaugurated on Monday in an initiative by the world body to help the region’s countries respond more proactively to cross-border challenges and threats before they can become costlier and more difficult to control. The Centre – located in Ashgabat, the capital of Turkmenistan – is being set up by the UN’s Department of Political Affairs (DPA) as it builds on its earlier assistance to the region, including the work since 2002 of the UN Forum for Conflict Prevention in Central Asia.Known by its acronym UNRCCA, the Centre is tasked with assisting the governments of Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan “in building capacities to peacefully prevent conflict, in facilitating dialogue, and in catalyzing international support behind projects and initiatives,” according to a press release issued by DPA.The Centre will be headed by a senior Representative of the UN Secretary-General and has been awarded an initial budget of $2.3 million and a small international staff contingent.UNRCCA is expected to work closely with existing UN agencies and programmes operating in Central Asia, and also regional groups such as the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).While the Centre’s immediate priorities will be determined after further consultations with the five governments in the region, cross-border threats and challenges such as terrorism, drug trafficking, organized crime and environmental degradation are likely to be high on the agenda.B. Lynn Pascoe, the Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs, will deliver a message on behalf of Mr. Ban to Monday’s inauguration ceremony, which will be followed by a two-day conference in Ashgabat on “International Cooperation in Preventive Diplomacy and Conflict Resolution.” read more
