More avian flu in Vietnam, Thai children cleared of diagnosis

By on November 18, 2020

first_imgJul 27, 2004 (CIDRAP News) – Experts in Vietnam confirmed today that avian influenza has spread to an 11th province, the southern Mekong Delta province of Long An, a major poultry breeding area, according to news service reports.In Thailand, at least 17 provinces have been hit with avian flu since the disease resurfaced this month. Two children who last week were thought to have the disease have now been found to have human influenza instead, but a new suspected case involving a 51-year-old farmer is being monitored. Of 20 suspected cases in Thais, 17 have been confirmed as not being avian flu, according to the Chinese news agency Xinhua. The others await laboratory test results.A Thai government official on Tuesday characterized the second outbreak this year as far different from the first, Xinhua reported. Only 205,000 fowl have been culled since Jul 3, compared with up to 60 million in the previous outbreak, Deputy Prime Minister Chaturon Chaisang was quoted by the Thai News Agency as saying on Tuesday. The government also defended its information disclosure system on the disease, calling it transparent.Avian flu experts will meet in Thailand beginning on Jul 28 for a 3-day meeting aimed at standardizing ways of testing and encouraging governments to discuss outbreaks. Representatives from several Asian countries as well as the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), and the World Health Organization (WHO) were expected to participate, Reuters reported.Economic woes caused by avian influenza could worsen following the European Union’s announcement yesterday that it was extending its ban on imports of poultry products, and pet birds from nine Asian countries hardest hit by avian flu earlier this year, news services reported. The ban, which was due to expire Aug 15, will continue through Dec 15 for Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Pakistan, South Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam.Avian flu has claimed 24 human lives in Asia this year, Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported. A WHO official based in Thailand, Dr. Somchai Peerapakorn, told The Nation, a Thai newspaper, on Jul 26 that the WHO is willing to develop a human vaccine to prevent the spread of avian flu from poultry to humans.Creating such a vaccine would be a challenge, said Michael T. Osterholm, PhD, MPH, director of CIDRAP, publisher of this Web site. He noted that initial studies indicate current H5N1 strains obtained from humans have been poorly immunogenic when made into vaccines and used in test animals.Osterholm raised three concerns that illustrate challenges to creating the vaccine: A successful human vaccine would need to spark production of sufficient antibodies to prevent illness. Then would come the question of how much vaccine can be made. Third, if human-to-human transmission were to occur, there is no evidence that a vaccine produced for current strains would protect people.Amy Becker is a freelance reporter for CIDRAP. She will enter the University of Minnesota’s graduate program in public health administration and policy in fall 2004.last_img read more

USDA aims to reduce Salmonella in meat and poultry

By on

first_imgMar 6, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently announced a new initiative to reduce Salmonella contamination in raw meat and poultry, mainly by focusing more effort on processing facilities that need improvement and reporting test results faster.A steady increase in Salmonella in broiler chickens tested by the USDA since 2002 is among the reasons for the initiative, the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) said in announcing the program on Feb 23. About 16% of broiler samples tested positive in 2005.”Our goal is to work proactively to reduce the presence of Salmonella on raw products before plants develop a pattern of poor performance,” USDA Under Secretary for Food Safety Dr. Richard Raymond said in a news release. “FSIS will more quickly report testing results and target establishments needing improvement, providing timely information to both consumers and industry.”The FSIS said it will concentrate its resources on facilities with higher levels of Salmonella and will provide sample-by-sample test results to facilities as soon as they become available.Currently, firms receive results after a full set of samples is completed, which for broilers means after 51 consecutive days of sampling, officials said. Giving the results for each sample when they become available “will help establishments in their assessment of whether their slaughter dressing procedures are adequate for pathogen reduction,” the agency said.The FSIS also will begin posting the overall nationwide results of its Salmonella testing on its Web site each quarter, “to give consumers more complete and timely information about Salmonella trends.” Currently results are posted annually. The agency will begin posting the quarterly data soon after the end of the first quarter of this year, according FSIS spokesman Steve Cohen.In addition, the agency said it plans to identify Salmonella serotypes more quickly so it can notify meat firms and investigate illness outbreaks in coordination with health agencies. Serotypes are used to trace the sources of outbreaks of foodborne disease by matching pathogen strains found in patients with strains found in foods.The Salmonella initiative is patterned after a recent FSIS program to reduce the level of Escherichia coli O157:H7 in ground beef. The FSIS calls that program highly successful and says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that it led to a 40% reduction in E coli illness cases.The agency said experience has shown that processing plants that get special inspections are able to reduce Salmonella in their products. “Where FSIS has performed Food Safety Assessments (FSAs) in establishments that have persistently poor performance records for controlling Salmonella, there has been a dramatic reduction in the levels of Salmonella,” the agency reported.The USDA first set Salmonella standards for raw meat and poultry in 1996 when it launched the Pathogen Reduction/Hazard Analysis and critical Control Point rule. The FSIS collects and tests samples of seven categories of products: broilers, market hogs, cows and bulls, steer and heifers, ground beef, ground chicken, and ground turkey.The agency said the overall percentage of contaminated broilers is below the baseline level at the time the HACCP rule was established, but “the recent upward trend is of concern to the agency.”In 2005, 16.3% of the 9,592 broiler samples from processing plants of all sizes tested positive for Salmonella, according to the FSIS’s latest report. That compares with 13.5% in 2004, 12.8% in 2003, and 11.5% in 2002.Also in 2005, the agency found Salmonella in 32.4% of 145 tested samples of ground chicken and 23.2% of 925 samples of ground turkey. In 2004 the respective figures were 25.5% for ground chicken and 19.9% for ground turkey.Salmonella was found far less often in the other product categories in 2005: 3.7% for market hogs, 1.3% for cows and bulls, 0.6% for steers and heifers, and 1.1% for ground beef.For all product categories combined in 2005, the FSIS found Salmonella in 5.7% (2,322) of the 40,714 samples tested, according to the report.The FSIS is accepting comments on its new policy until May30. (See news release link below for information on where to submit comments.)See also:Feb 23 FSIS news releasehttp://www.fsis.usda.gov/News_&_Events/NR_022306_01/index.aspFSIS report of Salmonella sampling results for 1998-2005http://www.fsis.usda.gov/Science/Progress_Report_Salmonella_Testing/index.aspAug 10, 2004, CIDRAP News story “USDA finding Salmonella less often in meat”last_img read more

Sunshine Coast to become home of fastest internet connection

By on September 28, 2020

first_imgHABITAT HOME: Sippy Downs is earmarked as the Sunshine Coast’s next property hot spot. Cleighton Clark with Terry Ryder.A new high speed telecommunications submarine cable has been labelled a game changer for one Queensland region and has one residential developer investing millions. Macca Reardon says the cable will enable youth to stay on the Sunshine Coast, rather than move to Brisbane.“Most of my friends left school and went to uni in Brisbane, or tried to stay on the Coast, I think most people didn’t want to go to Brisbane, but they had too because that’s where the jobs were,” he said.Upon completion Habitat Development Group will have added another $200 million gross value of residential properties to the Sunshine Coast, with a particular focus on Sippy Downs.Habitat Development Group managing director Cleighton Clark said they were so confident in the area as a future residential, business and tech hub, that they would proceed with another three projects worth $75 million in the Sippy Downs region. The Sunshine Coast submarine cable announcement has generated more than 80 leads from the announcement and marketing campaign since September 2018.A Sunshine Coast Regional Council spokesman said they had already received more than 80 business leads since the announcement in September last year. “Council has had a wide array of data centres interested in connecting to Australia’s fastest connection to Asia on the east-coast,” the spokesman said.“Examples include financial institutions who have shown an interest in establishing a presence on the Sunshine Coast to take advantage of the cable infrastructure. For 19-year-old Macca Reardon, who is one of the Sunshine Coast’s up and coming tech industry youth specialising in virtual reality, said it would create more jobs so young people would no longer have to move to the city for work. A window to make a splash An artist’s impression of the Sunshine Coast cable landing station is set to be operational by 2020.“In the short-term we expect a data centre operator to establish on the Sunshine Coast and with them, we will see the migration of high-value jobs in finance, banking and technology to the region.” MORE: Meet the home turning heads Cool $8 for Noosa dream homecenter_img >>FOLLOW EMILY BLACK ON FACEBOOK<< RELATED: The Sunshine Coast is sitting on a property boom, with the announcement of the cable attracting both interstate and international businesses.Construction has begun on the $35 million submarine cable network project, which is expected to be in service by mid-2020. Developer Cleighton Clark with Terry Ryder discussing Sippy Downs, which is earmarked as the Sunshine Coast’s next property hot spot. “Sippy Downs has all the right fundamentals for future demand which would lead to property price growth,” Mr Ryder said.“It has a university campus and that is always a major piece of infrastructure that will attract investors and owner occupiers.”Mr Clark said, along with the coming infrastructure, Sippy Downs’ vacancy rate was exceptionally low, and the reason they had already delivered four, sold out apartment buildings.“We continue to manage that portfolio and our vacancy for the past two years has been about 0 to .5 per cent,” Mr Clark said.“It hasn’t been over 1 per cent now for the past couple of years, which is obviously a very undersupplied market.”The Sippy Downs local plan, which was updated in 2014 as part of the Sunshine Coast regional plan, nominated the town centre, next to the University of the Sunshine Coast campus as a major regional activity centre.It is earmarked for significant retail, commercial and community activity and proposes a Sippy Downs Business and Technology Sub-precinct next to the Town Centre core and the University campus.

Mr Ryder said Sippy Downs had a lot of the elements that investors were looking for.“It ticks a lot of the boxes we want to tick,” he said.“It is a very, very high priority for investors that there be existing and new infrastructure, Sippy Downs has that.“I see the Sunshine Coast as a hotspot at the beginning of a cycle really of good growth based on what is happening in the economy and when I start to drill down a bit more, I like the southern part of the Sunshine Coast in particular.“It is one of the more affordable ends of the market, where there are some quality new developments and new communities emerging.” A bird’s eye view from Sippy Downs to the coastline. Ray White Maroochydore director Dan Snowden said while the Sunshine Coast had a great lifestyle it lacked well paid performing jobs.“The submarine cable, in combination with the Maroochydore CBD expansion and the new airport runway … is really exciting for big international businesses to relocate and move their headquarters to the Sunshine Coast,” Mr Snowden said.“There’s great talk in the market about the fact that it’s coming and we know that business nationally are expressing interest in the new Maroochydore CBD to build a headquarters that will use the cable.“From the residential point of view, it will be until these buildings start construction in the CBD, that will then start to see people move in locally.” Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:58Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:58 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD576p576p360p360p216p216pAutoA, selectedAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Chelsea complete Thiago Silva deal

By on September 22, 2020

first_imgRelatedPosts Lampard: I still have confidence in Tomori Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea EPL: Chelsea, Liverpool in cagey duel Chelsea have hailed Thiago Silva’s “proven world-class credentials” after finalising the Brazil centre-back’s free transfer from Paris St Germain.The 35-year-old has signed a one-year Stamford Bridge contract, with the club holding the option of adding another 12 months. Silva’s addition will help manager Frank Lampard restructure his defence, and follows Wednesday’s £45 million capture of England left-back Ben Chilwell from Leicester.Silva’s eight years in France ended with PSG’s 1-0 Champions League final defeat by Bayern Munich, and the Blues have moved quickly to tie up a deal for the 89-cap Brazil star.Silva ought to be approaching the twilight of a glittering career but Chelsea insist he has the evergreen and elite qualities to provide a significant boost to Lampard’s reshaped Blues.“We are delighted to be able to add a player of Thiago Silva’s proven world-class credentials to our squad,” said Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia.“Having performed at the highest level for many years, we have no doubt his experience and quality will complement the many exciting talents we already have here. “Thiago will be an excellent fit and we hope he can add some new trophies to his impressive list of honours.”Silva’s age profile represents a clear departure from Chelsea’s usual protocol of focusing major signings on players edging towards or already in the prime of their careers.But Lampard’s desire for a leader at the heart of his defensive reshuffle has proved critical in the cool-headed Brazil stopper’s arrival.The former AC Milan star will also doubtless be able to act as an auxiliary coach to the Blues’ young defensive talents, like Fikayo Tomori and Reece James.Chelsea’s revamp under Lampard continues at a relentless pace, with the club still working hard to complete a deal for Bayer Leverkusen forward Kai Havertz. Germany striker Timo Werner and Morocco winger Hakim Ziyech have been on hand and training with the Blues squad for some time, with both representing major new attacking weapons.France Under-21 defender Malang Sarr signed on a free transfer on Thursday after leaving Nice, but will spend next term out on loan.Tags: Ben ChilwellChelseaFrank LampardThiago Silvalast_img read more
