A new dangerous virus that can cause epidemic!
The virus has been found in bats
Epidemiologists have found a new virus similar to the one that caused SARS in 2002. Research published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences(antidepressants to buy).
It is reported that a virus called WIV1-CoV is capable of binding to the same receptors as the SARS virus, which previously was the cause of SARS.
According to scientists from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the new virus has been found in bats. Thus it is well reproduced in artificial human airway tissues, and thus can theoretically hit many people.
"To be honest, this virus may never get to the person, but if you will get the WIV1-CoV may well start a new epidemic with serious consequences for human health and the global economy", - says head of research Wynette Menaker.
At the same time, scientists have found that antibodies that were previously used against of SARS, have been effective against the new virus. At the same time the existing vaccines do not help in the prevention of WIV1-CoV due to small differences in the structure of the coronavirus.
The first cases of infection of the virus SARS emerged in China, the virus has infected since 2002, about 8 thousand persons. Out of these, about 800 have died. The virus is transferred through airborne droplets. It is noted that he hit a person's lungs, causing a pulmonary failure, and impaired immunity...
Zika virus was recorded in 52 countries
Cases of local transmission of the virus Zika have been reported in 52 countries in the first two months of 2016, according to the myfastweightloss World Health Organization.
According to WHO, five of these countries have already announced the end of the epidemic Zika. And three of them reported that the transfer of the virus could be carried out through sexual contact. In 31 countries in North and South America recorded transmission of the virus is indigenous. The last country to announce the transmission of the virus is indigenous, it became Laos. USA, France and Italy reported the local Zikoy diseases in the absence of mosquitoes carrying the virus.
The WHO noted that in general the geography of the spread of the disease has grown significantly since its discovery in 2015. In particular, in Colombia since October 1, 2015 on February 20, 2016 42706 cases of Zika virus was detected. Of these, 1,612 laboratory-confirmed cases.
At the same time, a growing number of cases, complications associated with Zikoy. In particular, Brazil and French Polynesia have been cases of microcephaly and other defects in newborns. In Brazil, from October 5909 to February noted cases of microcephaly and other defects of the central nervous system, and 139 deaths. Prior to this year in Brazil was recorded about 163 cases of microcephaly in newborns.
The WHO bestpainrelievers emphasizes that no direct link between the disease and microcephaly Zikoy children is proved, but the geographical spread of the virus allow data indicate a "greater probability" of such a relationship.
Note, previously the Ministry of Health assured that Ukraine is not threatened Zika virus.
Team HealthFX is now one for the history books. It's been a great few years and many thanks to the sponsors, and super special thanks to Shane Ellison and Ken Armstrong for helping make the team what it has been the last few seasons.
Dave and Lynda's blog has moved to http://2-epic.com/. Some of the more popular posts will be migrated to their new site but not all of it...
Some of the guys - Andrew, Ken, Greg, Miles - are forming a new team. You can follow their exploits at www.teamdirectoryplus.com.
I'll keep this site up for awhile...until it's time to renew with the web host.
