Jan 21, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – Authorities are investigating the possibility of human-to-human transmission of avian influenza in two newly confirmed cases in middle-aged brothers in northern Vietnam, the World Health Organization (WHO) said today.Tests have confirmed avian flu in a 46-year-old man from Thai Binh province who died Jan 9 and in his 42-year-old brother, a Hanoi resident who is recovering in a hospital, the WHO said. Earlier reports had said the older man (previously listed as 45 years old) had tested negative for the virus.The agency said the younger man might have acquired the disease from his brother—or both brothers might have been infected when they shared a family meal that included a dish containing raw duck blood and raw organs. Vietnamese officials are investigating the cases, the WHO said.An Agence France-Presse (AFP) report today said another brother, age 36, was also in a hospital with suspected avian flu. But the WHO said media reports of illness in the third brother have not been confirmed.The AFP story mentioned a possibility that the 42-year-old man became infected when he visited his older brother in a hospital.The WHO has warned repeatedly that the H5N1 avian flu could spark a pandemic if it acquired the ability to spread easily from person to person. All but one of the confirmed cases recognized in Vietnam and Thailand since January 2004 are believed to have resulted from exposure to sick poultry.A finding that the 42-year-old caught the disease from his brother, if it emerged, would not necessarily be a cause for alarm, the WHO said.”All evidence to date suggests that isolated instances of limited, unsustained human-to-human transmission can be expected from avian influenza viruses in humans,” the agency said. “Their occurrence does not call for any change in the present level of pandemic alert. Intensified surveillance for respiratory symptoms in close contacts of the two men has been initiated in both Thai Binh Province and Hanoi and it is reassuring that no cases of respiratory illness have so far been detected among these people.”Public health officials in Vietnam have repeatedly warned against eating food made with fresh duck blood or raw or inadequately cooked poultry products, the WHO said. The agency said people in all countries dealing with outbreaks of H5N1 avian flu should avoid such foods.Proper cooking of poultry—to an internal temperature of 70°C—destroys the virus, the WHO said.The two newly confirmed cases bring the total in Vietnam since mid-December to eight, of which seven have been fatal, the WHO said. The WHO case count currently lists 52 confirmed cases, including 39 deaths, in Vietnam and Thailand since January 2004.See also:Jan 21 WHO statementhttp://www.who.int/csr/don/2005_01_21/en/
When an after-market firm stretches these limos, it’s my understanding they never upgrade the brake systems. So the NTSB may find the limo’s brakes were, by design, inadequate for a one-mile road descent with a full load of passengers. This would hamper Mallery’s case against Hussain.That may be her real concern. Perhaps the overriding culprit is the lack of standards for stretch limo brake systems.Dick ValeSchenectady This action on the governor’s part expresses his blatant non-concern for retired public employees. We deserve better.Governor, take a reality check and start treating retirees and seniors with dignity and due consideration.Nicholas C. BarberSchenectady Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionCulprit in limo crash may be the brakesIn reading about Schoharie County DA Susan Mallery’s objections to allowing the NTSB access to the stretch limo, I am struck by something. She claims to be concerned that the NTSB will “endanger evidence” in her criminal case against the operator, Nauman Hussain. We are quite privileged here in Schenectady. Many of the problems in the rest of the country and in other countries don’t happen here.We have our excellent police force, fire department and ambulance service to manage what are often life-and-death situations. It’s too bad that these public servants are so often underpaid. They would often be better off working at a fast-food restaurant.Besides wanting to lose weight, my resolution is to try to speak up a little more. My ideas may or may not make sense, but I can look for problems and the good things, too.Lorene HuntleySchenectady Resolve to speak up more on good, badAt my really advanced years, I’ve had time to reflect on the past year and try to think of any small ways I can make anything better.Oh how much I often wished I could just wave a magic wand over the world and make everything all right.However, I do believe we are in the end times. Many people believe this, but it isn’t something that’s discussed much in public or in the political world. It would be political suicide to bring up the topic. It should be no surprise that there are so many problems these days. God, by whatever name He is called, has promised to bring all these troubles to an end before we manage to destroy ourselves completely.On the bright side, there are also a lot of major good stories. And, as usual, the good stories don’t always make the news. Gov. Cuomo must treat retirees betterAs a retiree of Schenectady County government, I’m sorely disappointed that Gov. Andrew Cuomo has no concern or appreciation for local government retirees.The governor recently vetoed legislation giving us 30 days notice prior to modifying or replacing health insurance coverage.No notification. No engagement or time for discussion. Unilateral action by local governments is unconscionable.The number one concern of retirees who are at advanced ages is quality health care, at the time when it’s most needed. China has money, experience for wallIt seems everyone has a suggestion about building the wall on our southern border. Here’s mine: Ask China to build the wall. They have the money and the experience (the Great Wall). We all win. Frank O’ConnorRotterdamMore from The Daily Gazette:Gov.

… Lindeners asked to respect synthetic track siteAS construction works progress on the eight-lane synthetic track at Wismar, Linden, Region 10, contractors have reported multiple incidents of theft occurring at the Bayroc Community Centre ground site, according to a release from the Ministry of the Presidency. The disappointing reports started since activation of construction in January 2019. The project, which is in the third of its four phases, has been minimally hindered by the loss of a quantity of building materials. These include drainage pipes, sand, security fencing, crusher-run, stone, steel rods, fuel, truck batteries and even security lights.The Ministry of the Presidency, Department of Social Cohesion, Culture, Youth and Sport remains disappointed by the actions of some residents, as these reflect poorly on the Bayroc community, Linden and Guyana as a whole.The Ministry wishes to remind Lindeners that the synthetic track project is a massive multi-million-dollar investment geared at enhancing the community’s athletes.Once operational, the state-of-the-art facility will undoubtedly attract multiple developments for Linden and its people. As a result, the Ministry expects residents to respect and treasure the facility.The matter has been reported to the police and security reinforcements have been installed.Regrettably, as a precautionary measure, residents of Linden are asked to desist traversing the site. This restriction is being implemented as a means of maintaining the integrity of ongoing works.
