WHO declares Ebola epidemic an international health emergency

WHO declares Ebola epidemic an international health emergency | 21st Century Medical English Teaching and Technology Resources | Scoop.it
By Kate Kelland LONDON (Reuters) - West Africa's Ebola epidemic is an "extraordinary event" and now constitutes an international health risk, the World Health Organisation (WHO) said on Friday. The Geneva-based U.N. health agency said the possible consequences of a further international spread of the outbreak, which has killed almost 1,000 people in four West African countries, were "particularly serious" in view of the virulence of the virus. The agency added that while all states with Ebola transmission - so far Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone - should declare a national emergency, there should be no general ban on international travel or trade. Keiji Fukuda, the WHO's head of health security, stressed that, with the right steps and measures to deal with infected people, Ebola's spread could be stopped.

Ebola can spread like 'forest fire,' US warns

Ebola can spread like 'forest fire,' US warns | 21st Century Medical English Teaching and Technology Resources | Scoop.it
The deadly Ebola virus can spread like a forest fire, US health authorities said Monday, urging travelers to West Africa to take extra precautions amid the largest outbreak in history. Since March, there have been 1,201 cases of Ebola and 672 deaths in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said. Two Americans -- one doctor and one healthcare worker -- in Monrovia, Liberia have come down with the virus, characterized by fever, joint pain, diarrhea, vomiting and often fatal bleeding. "The likelihood of this outbreak spreading beyond West Africa is very low," admitted Stephan Monroe, deputy director of the CDC's National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases.

Is it possible that microorganisms in vagina can protect against HIV infection and inhibit its replication? What is the population of these microorganisms? American scientists from University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston developed a cell culture model of the vaginal epithelium, which allows identifying the bacteria that protect against HIV infection and other pathogens transmitted by sexual contact.

 

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

Further research investigation is warranted... "It also gives the possibility to evaluate the antimicrobial drugs and their interaction between “good and bad bacteria” which colonize the vagina".

The UN's health agency said the scale of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa has been vastly underestimated and "extraordinary measures" were needed to contain the disease. As the official toll climbed to 1,069, according to World Health Organisation, the United States ordered the evacuation of diplomats' families from Sierra Leone, one of the three countries at the epicentre of the outbreak along with Liberia and Guinea.

DAKAR, Senegal (AP) — Deep in the forests of southern Guinea, the first victims fell ill with high fevers. People assumed it was the perennial killer malaria and had no reason to fear touching the bodies, as is the custom in traditional funerals.
Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

"When you have it spread, of course it's moving in the wrong direction," said Dr. Keiji Fukuda, WHO's assistant director-general for health security and environment. "You want to see the number of infections going down. So we really have to redouble our efforts. But saying that it's out of control makes it sound like there are no solutions. This is a virus for which there are very clear solutions."

 

It is also understood that "clear solutions" require "clear communication" with stakeholders at all levels.

Could Ebola Spread to the United States or Europe? | Live Science

Could Ebola Spread to the United States or Europe? | Live Science | 21st Century Medical English Teaching and Technology Resources | Scoop.it
The current outbreak of Ebola in West Africa is now the largest in history, but how likely is it to spread to the United States or other countries around the world? It's theoretically possible that people with Ebola could travel to other countries on planes, and infect others outside the region. The medical group Doctors Without Borders has said the epidemic is "out of control" in the region, and that they do not have the resources to care for the growing number of people who are sick. Could Ebola come to the U.S.?
Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

"One reason why the Ebola virus's spread is possible in theory is that it can take up to 21 days for an infected person to show symptoms.


That's ample time for someone with Ebola to travel a long distance by plane and arrive in the United States or Europe, said Derek Gatherer, a researcher at Lancaster University in the United Kingdom who studies virus genetics and evolution. [5 Things You Should Know About Ebola]"

Doctors Without Borders: Ebola 'out of control' | AP | 21st Century Medical English Teaching and Technology Resources | Scoop.it
DAKAR, Senegal (AP) — The Ebola outbreak ravaging West Africa is "totally out of control," according to a senior official for Doctors Without Borders, who says the medical group is stretched to the limit in responding.
Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

 "A senior official for Doctors Without Borders said this outbreak is particularly challenging because it began in an area where people are very mobile and has spread to even more densely populated areas, like the capitals of Guinea and Liberia.... The disease typically strikes sparsely populated areas in central or eastern Africa, where it spreads less easily, he said.By contrast, the epicenter of this outbreak is near a major regional transport hub, the Guinean city of Gueckedou".

 

This is very serious and needs global assistance and attention.
