N.D. Department of Health confirms state’s first ever variant flu case


The Department of Health has confirmed the state's first ever case of variant flu in a human.

The confirmed case of the H3N2V influenza was found in a child who was exposed to pigs at the State Fair in July. That child was hospitalized, but recovered and has since been released.

Most cases of this variant influenza occur during summer months in people who had contact with pigs. Even though a child contracted the illness, experts say getting variant flu is highly unlikely.

“Human to human transmission of this strain happens extremely rarely and tends to happen when people are very close contact like a caregiver. And this is true of all novel influenzas,” said Jill Baber, who works with the Division of Disease Control.

Yemen cholera epidemic: Cases exceed 500,000 in four months


The number of suspected cases of cholera resulting from an epidemic in war-torn Yemen has reached 500,000, the World Health Organization (WHO) says.

At least 1,975 people have died since the waterborne disease began to spread rapidly at the end of April.

The WHO said the overall caseload had declined since July, but that 5,000 people a day were still being infected.

The disease spread due to deteriorating hygiene and sanitation conditions and disruptions to the water supply.

More than 14 million people are cut off from regular access to clean water and sanitation in Yemen, and waste collection has ceased in major cities.

Experts: Herd Immunity Outside US Slows Zika in Florida





MIAMI (AP) — The waning of Zika outbreaks in the Caribbean and South America has helped slow the spread of the mosquito-borne virus in Florida this year, according to health officials.

Herd immunity, when enough people in an area are infected with a virus and develop resistance to it, likely has contributed to Zika's decline outside the continental United States, Dr. Henry Walke, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's incident manager for Zika response, said in a Miami Herald report .

Good for you Mark!

Congratulations on the continuing path to recovery, however slow it might be, taking and doing research on what *might* work best for you - NOT what the DOC "insists" on what is best for you. Sometimes these specialists are to rigid and will not listen to the patient.

These things do take time and a bit of experimenting to hopefully find what does / does not work.

Keep on roaring like a big cat or purring like a little kitten.

I know you can do it - one day at a time.

Philippines declares first ever H5 bird flu outbreak


The Philippines declared its first ever outbreak of the H5 strain of bird flu on Friday, but said there had been no cases of humans infected.

An immediate cull was ordered for all chicken, ducks and quail within a kilometre (0.6 miles) of the infected poultry in San Luis town, north of Manila, said Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Pinol.

The health department was meanwhile monitoring the health of farm workers exposed to the infected birds, he added.

"So far we do not have any reported animal to human transmissions," Pinol told a news conference.

Scientists find four Earth-like exoplanets orbiting closest sun-like star



Aug. 9 (UPI) -- Scientists have found four Earth-like exoplanets orbiting a star system just 12 light-years away.

The four planets are the closest Earth-like worlds yet discovered. And at just 1.7 Earth masses, they're also the smallest nearby Earth-like planets.

Astronomers detected the presence of the four exoplanets by analyzing slight wobbles in the movement of tau Ceti, the closest known sun-like star. Tau Ceti's wobbles are incredibly subtle, and required instruments capable of measuring deviations as small as 30 centimeters per second.

Salmonella Outbreak Linked To Papayas Sickens More Than 100 People


It's the right time of year to enjoy delicious tropical fruit.

But for now, U.S. consumers should avoid Maradol papayas imported from Mexico, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

More than 100 people in 16 states have been sickened by strains of salmonella that U.S. health officials say are linked to the papayas.

Authorities are recommending that "consumers not eat, restaurants not serve, and retailers not sell Maradol papayas from Mexico until we learn more." When in doubt, throw it out, the CDC says.
