For this 16-year-old lad clocked doing 170 k/hr in a 100 k/hr zone, nothing was going to get him out of it short of being driving while engulfed in flames. He wasn’t. He ended up with fines totalling over a $1000, including a couple of hundred dollars for being at that stage of his graduated licence where he was supposed to have a grown up in the car. In Ontario, they would have seized his Camaro. Much as I hate that law, ya’ know…He may be new to driving,  but he had a perennial excuse: he had to go to the bathroom. It was probably the truth; he told the arresting officer he’d had too many hot wings. I hate it when that happens. Trending in Canadalast_img read more

first_img South Korea confirms another H5N1 farm outbreakSouth Korea today confirmed a new H5N1 avian flu outbreak at a duck farm in Jeolla Province, according to Xinhua, China’s state news service. An undisclosed number of birds tested positive on the farm, and 14,000 ducks on the farm plus 70,000 birds at nearby farms were culled to stem the outbreak, the nation’s Ministry for Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries reported. This is South Korea’s third H5N1 outbreak since Dec 31 and occurs as the country also battles its worst outbreak to date of foot-and-mouth disease in cattle.Jan 7 Xinhua story Seattle nonprofit gets DoD grant for intradermal flu vaccineThe Infectious Disease Research Institute (IDRI), a nonprofit group based in Seattle, announced today that it has received a grant from two Department of Defense (DoD) agencies to develop a single-dose, adjuvanted, intradermal vaccine for use in a flu pandemic. IDRI spokeswoman Laura Shoemaker told CIDRAP News that the grant, awarded by the DoD’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the Army Research Office, is a 2-year award worth $3,278,982. The group said the vaccine includes adjuvant technology that it developed and a microneedle delivery device. Intradermal administration may improve the immunogenicity of the vaccine and reduce the amount of antigen needed, the institute said, adding that some of its adjuvants have yielded similar benefits. Dr Darrick Carter, IDRI’s director of formulations and a principal investigator, said in the statement that the DoD grant will support proof-of-concept preclinical studies and phase 1 clinical testing.Jan 7 IDRI press release Australia spent $200 million on pandemic responseThe Australian government spent about $200 million on its response to the 2009 H1N1 pandemic, according to health department documents, the Australian Broadcasting Corp. (ABC) reported today. Health officials provided the data to the government after last year’s elections, and a document containing the information was obtained by the media under a freedom-of-information request. The health department spent $131 million on 21 million doses of pandemic vaccine, of which 9 million doses were distributed. Officials weren’t able to say how many doses were administered. Authorities planned for a severe pandemic scenario and did not spend an additional $20 million that was available for the government’s response.Jan 7 ABC story Jan 7, 2011center_img CDC cautions travelers over yellow fever in UgandaBecause of the yellow fever outbreak in northern Uganda, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned Americans yesterday against traveling to the region unless they have been vaccinated against the disease in the past 10 years. The agency recommended vaccination for everyone aged 9 months and older, and noted that Uganda requires the vaccination for everyone from the age of 1 year who arrives from a country with endemic yellow fever. Those who have been vaccinated recently should wait at least 10 days before traveling to the region, to allow time for the vaccine to take effect. The CDC also advised travelers to take steps to prevent mosquito bites. Meanwhile, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) this week put the number of cases in northern Uganda at 190, with 48 deaths. The agency said most of the cases are in men between the ages of 20 and 34.Jan 6 CDC noticeJan 5 ECDC statement UN appoints cholera probe panelThe United Nations (UN) announced yesterday that it has appointed a four-member expert panel to explore the source of Haiti’s cholera outbreak. In a press release the UN said Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has been deeply concerned about the outbreak and believes finding the source is important for the UN and the people of Haiti. Some in Haiti contend the outbreak began at a UN peacekeeping base where Nepalese soldiers were stationed, according to previous reports. Cholera illnesses were reported in Nepal at the time the soldiers arrived in Haiti, and the UN base where they stayed is on the Artibonite River, where the outbreak is thought to have started. A few experts who examined the situation have also said there is a strong possibility that the outbreak source might be the UN base. The UN said the expert panel members were selected for their experience in working with cholera. The panel is headed by Dr Alejandro Cravioto, a Mexican citizen from the International Center for Diarrhoeal Disease Research in Bangladesh. The other members are Dr Claudio Lanata from Peru’s Instituto de Investigacion Nutritional, Dr Daniele Lantagne of Harvard University, and Dr Balakrish Nair from India’s National Institute of Cholera and Enteric Diseases. The UN said the panel is independent from the UN but will have full access to all UN records, reports, facilities, and staff.Jan 6 UN statementlast_img read more

Flu Scan for Apr 01, 2015

first_imgStudy: High-dose flu vaccine cut hospitalization risk only in very elderlyA study involving more than 160,000 elderly US military veterans suggests that the high-dose (HD) influenza vaccine didn’t lower their risk of hospitalization for flu or pneumonia overall, compared with standard-dose (SD) vaccine, but it did reduce the risk for those 85 and older.The HD vaccine, which contains four times as much antigen as SD vaccine, is intended to boost protection in elderly people, who have a weaker immune response to vaccines than younger people do.Researchers in Philadelphia focused on patients who received primary care at Veterans Health Administration (VHA) hospitals and who received flu vaccine in the 2010-11 flu season, when the match between the flu vaccine and circulating flu strains was said to be excellent. Their report was published yesterday in Clinical Infectious Diseases.The study included 25,714 HD vaccine recipients and 139,511 SD vaccinees at 23 VHA medical centers. The rate of hospitalization for flu or pneumonia during the flu season was 0.3% in both groups. The authors did not gather data on the number of lab-confirmed flu cases.Most of the patients were men. Compared with SD recipients, the HD recipients were slightly older, more likely to be black, had more comorbidities, and were more likely to have HIV and exposure to immunosuppressive drugs.After adjusting for the differences in patient characteristics, the authors found that the risk of hospitalization for flu or pneumonia was not significantly lower in the HD group overall than in the SD group (risk ratio, 0.98; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.68-1.40).But among patients who were 85 or older, the hospitalization rate for flu or pneumonia was significantly lower in the HD group: 0.30% versus 0.66% (risk ratio, 0.52; 95% CI, 0.29-0.92).The authors conclude that more studies are needed to evaluate the benefits of the HD vaccine and to find other ways to increase the immunogenicity of flu vaccines in elderly people.Mar 31 Clin Infect Dis abstract Related Feb 9 CIDRAP News item Study suggests human spread of H7N9 increased slightly in 2nd waveAn analysis of disease-onset data from China’s H7N9 outbreaks in 2013 and early 2014 produced some evidence of increased human-to-human transmission in the second wave of cases, a team of British and US researchers reported today in Emerging Infectious Diseases.The team focused on the provinces that had the six largest outbreaks: Shanghai, Zhejiang, and Jiangsu in the first wave, in the spring of 2013, and Guangdong, Zhejiang, and Jiangsu in the second wave, from November 2013 to May 2014. In addition to examining human transmission, the researchers assessed how much bird-market closures reduced animal-to-human transmission.They said previous studies of H7N9 suggested that the basic reproduction number—R0, the average number of secondary cases generated by a typical infected person in a fully susceptible population—was higher in some disease clusters than others, although there was no sustained transmission.The researchers said they found evidence of “a small but significant amount of transmission between humans in the first and second waves” of cases. The estimated reproduction number for Jiangsu did not change significantly between the first and second waves, but for Zhejiang, R0 increased significantly between the two waves, from 0.06 (95% credible interval [CrI], 0.00–0.25) to 0.35 (95% CrI, 0.15–0.65) (P = .045).In addition, the team identified five case clusters involving human transmission during the first wave and eight such clusters in the second wave. In both waves the median size of the clusters was two cases.The analysis also showed that market closures were very effective in reducing the risk of animal-to-human transmission, but the reduction was lower in Guangdong than in the other provinces.Apr 1 Emerg Infect Dis reportlast_img read more

first_imgAfter scoring a century against four-time champions, Guyana Jaguars, Montcin Hontcin Hodge believes that more is to come from him. The 31-year-old Anguillan brought up his second century of the season, only his fourth in first-class cricket against the Jaguars in the fifth round of the Cricket West Indies Regional Four-day Tournament last week where he smashed 14 boundaries on his way to 127.Hodge said prior to the chase of 291, the captain Kieran Powell wanted someone from the top order to bat for a long period and he decided to put his hand up and go for the long ride.“Well the meeting we had this morning [on Sunday] about chasing down the total the skipper said one of the batters at the top had to bat through so I took up the mantle to do that for the team,” Hodge told Stabroek Sport. With the team facing a difficult task, Hodge noted that it was just sticking to the plans that did it for the team while incorporating an aggressive mindset with the attitude of conquering the opponent that did it for his side.The Leeward Islands Hurricanes opener added that he was never nervous during his innings but was happy to be above the required rate throughout the innings.Having jumped to the top of the leading run getters, Hodge stated that it is not up to him to decide if he should be selected on the West Indies senior or other representative teams. However, his efforts, he opined will help in putting pressure on the selectors as he continues to score runs while allowing them to do their job.Making the difference this season for Hodge was his self-belief as he compared previous seasons to this one.“Just believe in myself a bit more, I think I wasn’t doing that throughout so I just take the season to believe in myself I didn’t have the best Super50 but I told myself before the tournament I would just back myself to do the job for the team,” Hodge said. Setting himself to achieve three tons in the tournament, Hodge added that he would welcome any more having scored two already but seeing them as a bonus.Hodge indicated that he was not the only player to perform, acknowledging the efforts of Rahkeem Cornwall whom he describes as a very good bowler.“Rahkeem is a very good bowler. Whenever he has the ball in his hands he is backing himself all the time so with our teammates cheering him on, he always looks to come big for the team,” Hodge said.In addition, Hodge commended Jason Peters on his composed cameo that steered Hurricanes home saying “leading his team to victory was a particular honor for me. “It would mean a lot for the team, a lot of the guys were really ill one of our players’ mom passed away so it will give him a big boost in terms of happiness.”Hodge added that the momentum from the win will mean a lot to the team heading into the next round which will be played in St. Kitts which will be seen as a home venue for Hurricanes.last_img read more
