Chinese Officials Seal Off 'Plague' City, Puzzling US Experts

Chinese Officials Seal Off 'Plague' City, Puzzling US Experts | Health Care | Scoop.it

"A city in China has reportedly been sealed off after one resident died from bubonic plague, but this way of trying to contain the disease is puzzling to infectious disease experts, who say the response seems extreme given the information released about the case.

 

According to news reports, Chinese officials have blocked off parts of Yumen, a city in northwest China, preventing about 30,000 of the city's people from leaving. . . . "

Brian Altonen's curator insight, July 23, 2014 10:32 PM

When yellow fever struck Philadelphia in 1797, over the next week of so tens of thousands of people left the city.  In the Poughkeepsie Journal article published about this exodus, it was estimated that 40,000 people left the city, with many more now leaving New York City as this epidemic made its way into New York City.

 

What does this exodus of those fearing the return of the Plague do to a public health system?  Fortunately, the yellow fever was limited in its diffusion by its own natural history.  Not every place the potential victims and occasions true victims went to were susceptible to whatever virus they carried, whatever mosquito was needed to effectively spread this virus back into the local ecology and rural-urban communities.

 

In Yumen, China, about 30,000 people are prevented from seeking refuge.  An exodus is not possible for these Chinese.  Have they become nothing more than a growing or genetic testing "medium" for the next bubonic plague outbreak genotypes?

 

Restricting people from moving seems preventive in nature, it sets the stage for an evolutionary setback that could very well dismiss the value of the temporary safety this quarantine has provided.  The Yersinia organisms, hosts and vectors involved in this event provide it with opportunities to develop secondary and tertiary niduses in China.  Some of these new foci could very well have new genetics developed due to their new ecosystems and environmental associations.  

 

Much like Vibrio species residing off the west coast and in the Gulf stream, where plenty of natural animal hosts resided and human hosts are waiting for the next outbreak, it is possible that by the end of this natural disease cycle, more variations of Yersinia pestis will be perfected, more for researchers to take advantage of, and more reason to continue to accelerate the growth of certain parts of the public health care system.

 

 The only victims here are the people forced to remain in Yumen.  How many of them won't survive this quarantine?

Stop Saying 'Workaholic' Like It's a Good Thing

Stop Saying 'Workaholic' Like It's a Good Thing | Health Care | Scoop.it

Let's just make one thing clear--being called a "workaholic" is not a compliment. Taking time off is essential for being a happy, healthy, whole individual. So unless you want to be a miserable, sickly mutated chimera, you should be taking more time off. Stop working so hard. It could be killing you.

 

Stop Giving Up Vacation Time! Are You Crazy?


It's been increasingly more common for employees to sacrifice their vacation days in exchange for a nod from higher ups. Some believe that surrendering their time off demonstrates their commitment to the company, serving as a testament to their work ethic and, hopefully, resulting in job security.

Extended time off is key for a happy, productive life. So why isn't it more common?

Haresh Patel's curator insight, July 25, 2014 5:26 AM

If American feels, they are work-alcoholic then what about Indian IT Crowd? I always envy my German friend who always makes most out his every extended weekend - vacationing round the year. 

 

Way to go....

Ellen Naylor's curator insight, July 26, 2014 12:46 PM

The lack of vacation Americans take can't be emphasized enough. Being a workaholic is unhealthy. The way most of us work, it takes at least one week of vacation to unwind.

The Blue Blood Harvest

The Blue Blood Harvest | Health Care | Scoop.it

Each year, half a million horseshoe crabs are captured and bled alive to create an unparalleled biomedical technology.

The thing about the blood that everyone notices first: It's blue, baby blue.

The marvelous thing about horseshoe crab blood, though, isn't the color. It's a chemical found only in the amoebocytes of its blood cells that can detect mere traces of bacterial presence and trap them in inescapable clots.

To take advantage of this biological idiosyncrasy, pharmaceutical companies burst the cells that contain the chemical, called coagulogen. Then, they can use the coagulogen to detect contamination in any solution that might come into contact with blood. If there are dangerous bacterial endotoxins in the liquid—even at a concentration of one part per trillion—the horseshoe crab blood extract will go to work, turning the solution into what scientist Fred Bang, who co-discovered the substance, called a "gel."

"This gel immobilized the bacteria but did not kill them," Bang wrote in the 1956 paper announcing the substance. "The gel or clot was stable and tough and remained so for several weeks at room temperature."

If there is no bacterial contamination, then the coagulation does not occur, and the solution can be considered free of bacteria. It's a simple, nearly instantaneous test that goes by the name of the LAL, or Limulus amebocyte lysate, test (after the species name of the crab, Limulus polyphemus).

The LAL test replaced the rather horrifying prospect of possibly contaminated substances being tested on "large colonies of rabbits." Pharma companies didn't like the rabbit process, either, because it was slow and expensive.
