  • H1N1 FLU BREAKING NEWS: Vaccine updates, infected Northern Ireland pigs, advice for sick preschoolers

    first_imgWHO praises pandemic vaccine donationsThe World Health Organization (WHO) today applauded the donation of the United States and eight other developed countries of pandemic H1N1 vaccine to poorer nations. The donation announcement yesterday shows a commitment to fairness, the WHO said in a statement. Given that demand will exceed the global supply of vaccine, the WHO noted that the country donations, plus those previously announced by some manufacturers, will ensure vaccine for nations that lack resources for their own stockpiles.http://www.who.int/mediacentre/news/statements/2009/pandemic_vaccine_donations_20090918/en/index.htmlSep 18 WHO statementWHO lowers pandemic vaccine estimateThe WHO has scaled back its projection of how much pandemic H1N1 vaccine that will be produced globally, spokesman Gregory Hartl told the media today, according to the Associated Press (AP). Output will be “substantially less” than the WHO’s previous forecast of 94 million doses a week and 4.9 billion doses in the next year, Hartl said. Estimates are lower because some companies are still making seasonal vaccine, and some have experienced production problems.http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32911603/ns/health-swine_flu/Sep 18 AP storyPiglets in Northern Ireland test positive for H1N1Some piglets in Northern Ireland have tested positive for the novel H1N1 virus, the jurisdiction’s Department of Agriculture and Rural Affairs announced yesterday. A BBC News report said the finding is the first such case in Europe. “Given that this virus is currently circulating in humans this finding is not unexpected,” the department said in a news release. Officials did not list the location of the affected farm.http://www.northernireland.gov.uk/news/news-dard/newsdard-170909-test-results-indicate.htmSep 17 Northern Ireland Department of Agriculture statementAustralia approves CSL’s H1N1 vaccineThe Australian government has approved a pandemic H1N1 vaccine made by CSL Ltd. for use in adults, the Australian Associated Press (AAP) reported today. The government has bought 21 million doses, which Health Minister Nicola Roxon said will be enough for all adults, and doses are expected to be available starting Sep 30. The government is awaiting clinical trial results before approving the vaccine for use in children. The virus has killed 172 people in Australia.http://www.theage.com.au/national/national-rollout-as-swine-flu-vaccine-approved-20090918-fuyz.htmlSep 18 AAP storyMinnesota says to keep ill preschoolers home longerThe Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) says that children up to age 5 who have flu should be kept home from day care and school for 7 days after they get sick or 24 hours after symptoms resolve, a more cautious approach than the federal one, the Star Tribune reported. The CDC recommended in August that children be kept home until they are fever-free for 24 hours without the help of medication. Minnesota, which now has widespread flu activity, still uses that advice for older children.http://www.startribune.com/lifestyle/health/59650722.html?elr=KArks7PYDiaK7DUvDE7aL_V_BD77:DiiUiacyKU7DYaGEP7vDEh7P:DiUsSep 17 Star Tribune storylast_img read more

  • Governor Wolf Calls for Gun Violence Prevention After New Jersey Attack

    first_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Governor Wolf Calls for Gun Violence Prevention After New Jersey Attack National Issues,  Press Release Governor Tom Wolf released the following statement on the gun violence in New Jersey that resulted in the death of a police officer and three innocent civilians:“The shooting in Jersey City is yet another heartbreaking act of gun violence in America. And now we’re learning that the murderer had a history of anti-Semitism. We must support those affected by this tragedy not just with thoughts and prayers, but with action that discourages hatred, especially anti-Semitism, and helps stop violence. And as we saw in the Tree of Life terrorist attack, hatred can drive violence, but the types of weapons used in these shootings are enabling mass murder. These weapons are putting innocent citizens and law enforcement at greater risk. It is past time for federal and state lawmakers to pass meaningful gun violence prevention legislation. We can do more to stop people driven by hatred or any other evil from being able to so easily kill so many innocent people.”center_img December 11, 2019last_img read more

I think there could have been a couple of penalties. It shows good character to get on with it and that’s what we’ve done.”— Kane after his 91st-minute goal broke Tunisian hearts.“Leo has kicked a thousand penalties which have been a thousand goals so who am I to say something after a penalty.”— Argentina defender Gabriel Mercado refuses to wade in on the debate over Lionel Messi’s role as penalty-taker despite the Barcelona star missing four of his last seven spot-kicks for club and country.“I can understand that he was frustrated that he didn’t get the result that he wanted. If we would be in his position we would probably be as frustrated as him.”— Defender Birkir Saevarsson says he understands Messi’s frustrations at Iceland’s tactics in their 1-1 draw.“I think you need to start! I need a substitution now!”— Iran coach Carlos Queiroz, pointing to midfielder Masoud Shojaei after speaking at length during a chaotic press conference a day before meeting Spain.“A coach who loses a match is never right.
