A yellow fever epidemic in Angola could turn into a global crisis


LUANDA, Angola — Almost 80 years after the yellow fever vaccine was created in a New York laboratory, a massive outbreak of the disease has killed hundreds of people in this country, where most were never immunized.

Now, the virus is jumping across borders into other nations whose populations are also largely unvaccinated. More than 3,000 suspected cases are in Angola and 1,000 in neighboring Congo, making this the biggest urban epidemic in decades. More than 400 people have died. There are growing concerns that Chinese workers — of whom there are thousands in Angola — will carry the virus to Asia, where nearly all of the rural poor are also unvaccinated.

A yellow fever epidemic in Angola could turn into a global crisis, let's hope not.

‘Infant’ Alien Planet Discovery Shakes Up Ideas About How Worlds Form

Astronomers have found what they say is the youngest fully formed exoplanet ever seen, and it’s shaking up ideas about how planets form.

“This discovery is a remarkable milestone in exoplanet science,” Erik Petigura, a postdoctoral scholar at Caltech in Pasadena, California, and coauthor of a paper about the finding, said in a written statement. The discovery, he said, could help explain the origins of Earth “and eventually the origin of life.”

EgyptAir crash: Paris prosecutor opens manslaughter inquiry

The Paris prosecutor has opened a manslaughter investigation into last month's EgyptAir plane crash.

A spokeswoman told the Associated Press that it would begin as an accident inquiry because there was no evidence so far to link it to terrorism.

The authorities, she said, were "not at all" favouring the theory the Airbus A320 was brought down deliberately.

Happy for Sierra Leone.

Ebola-hit Sierra Leone gets Mecca all clear

Freetown - Saudi Arabia's government has allocated 800 places to Sierra Leone for hajj pilgrims, lifting a two-year ban imposed due to the Ebola crisis, officials said on Friday.

Saudi authorities in 2014 banned people from Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia - the three nations that bore the brunt of the outbreak.

People previously infected with dengue may be more vulnerable to Zika virus

New research points the way toward a potential vaccine against Zika, and may explain why the formerly mild virus exploded with such fury when it arrived in Brazil.

A pair of studies published Thursday focus on Zika's complex relationship with a related virus called dengue, a common illness in Latin America and the Caribbean that causes flu-like symptoms. Dengue is spread by the same mosquito species as Zika, and the two viruses are so similar that blood tests sometimes can't tell the two apart.

WHO to launch emergency yellow fever vaccination in Angola, Congo

The World Health Organization (WHO) said on Thursday that it will launch emergency yellow fever vaccination campaigns along the border between Angola and Democratic Republic of Congo and in the Congolese capital Kinshasa next month.

The worst yellow fever outbreak in decades has killed about 345 people in Angola, while Congo declared an epidemic in Kinshasa and two other provinces on Monday after reporting 67 confirmed cases and more than 1,000 other suspected cases.

CDC panel recommends against using FluMist vaccine

(CNN)Flu vaccines are about to get more painful. A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advisory committee recommended on Wednesday that FluMist, the nasal spray influenza vaccine, should not be used during the upcoming flu season.
"To everyone's surprise and increasing consternation, this vaccine has performed quite poorly compared to the injectable vaccine," said Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease specialist.

Missing MH370: 'Debris' Found on Kangaroo Island Is Not From Jet

Debris found on Australia's Kangaroo Island is not from a Boeing plane, investigators searching for the wreckage of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 said Wednesday.

The piece bears the words "NO STEP" but Boeing advised experts it was not consistent with one of its planes.

"As such, the [Australia Transport Safety Bureau] has assessed that the item is not related to … the search for MH370," the agency said in a routine update.
