Saudis, WHO report 8 asymptomatic MERS cases

[link to crofsblogs.typepad.com]

Saudi Arabia reported nine new MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) cases in the past 3 days, including six cases that were asymptomatic. In addition, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported on Jun 22 that two Saudi MERS cases that had been announced earlier were also asymptomatic. The Saudi and WHO reports offered the clearest evidence yet of such cases, which suggest the possibility that people can unknowingly carry and spread the virus.

Shanghai man dies from H7N9 infection

Posted on June 27, 2013by The Extinction Protocol

June 27, 2013 – CHINA - Shanghai health officials today reported another death from the H7N9 flu virus, in a man whose infection was first announced in early April and whose wife was among the first in the city to die from the disease. The 56-year-old man whose surname was Gu died early this morning, raising the number of outbreak fatalities in China to 40, according to a report from Xinhua, China’s state news agency. His case had been confirmed on Apr 11. The man’s 52-year-old wife died from an H7N9 infection on Apr 3, according to previous reports. Family-cluster infections aren’t surprising in outbreak settings and can result from common exposures or human-to-human contact. So far the man and his wife are the only known couple to be infected in the outbreak. In a May 15 report, Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported that the couple’s 26-year-old daughter, Kelly Gu, who is a doctoral student in France, said her mother was probably infected on her daily trip to the market near the couple’s home in Shanghai. She questioned the treatment her mother received early in the outbreak and said the woman had been sick for 5 days before China’s government announced the H7N9 outbreak, according to AFP. Gu said her father had been sedated and on a ventilator. Gu also made headlines on Apr 22 when she spoke up at a press conference in Shanghai with health officials and a visiting team from the World Health Organization (WHO). She asked about possible treatments for her father, but health officials stopped her before she finished, according to the AFP report. Researchers are still assessing the severity as the H7N9 outbreak, and although no new cases have been reported since the end of May, some patients sickened earlier in the outbreak are still hospitalized. The latest assessment by a team from China in a Jun 24 issue of The Lancet said H7N9 infections are less serious than earlier assessments, with more mild infections than previously thought. So far the virus has sickened 131 people, all but one from China. Taiwan reported a case in a man who had traveled to the outbreak area in China, which puts the global total at 132. -CIDRAP [link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]

Introduction

Perhaps nothing in the health sciences can raise the specter of intense debate more than the origin of the multifarious Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), which has reportedly infected an estimated 40.3 million people since AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) was first described clinically in 1981.

A man from Qatar has died in a British hospital from the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (Mers-CoV).


The 49-year-old man was admitted to St Thomas' Hospital in London and was treated in intensive care. He died after his condition deteriorated.

This is the 43rd patient to die from Mers-CoV globally. Countries where the disease has also been found include Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, France, Germany, Italy and Tunisia.

Dr Jon Bible, a virus expert at Guy's and St Thomas', told the Daily Telegraph that they are unsure of what killed the latest victim: "In the end his lungs were worn down, so secondary infection is the real problem. The virus effectively turns your lungs to jelly," he said.

London man dies of MERS-CoV virus: fourth death reported in two days

Posted on July 4, 2013by The Extinction Protocol


July 4, 2013 – LONDON - A man infected with a SARS-like respiratory illness has died in London, officials said. The Qatari man, who was being treated in an intensive care unit at St Thomas’s hospital in central London, had contracted the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus – or MERS-CoV. Hospital officials said that the man, who was 49 when he was admitted, died after his condition deteriorated. The patient, who was suffering from acute respiratory syndrome and renal failure, was admitted to an intensive care unit in Doha, Qatar, on 7 September last year. The man, who has not been named by officials, was transferred to the UK by air ambulance on 11 September. Before he became ill he had travelled to Saudi Arabia, officials said. Despite doctors’ efforts to keep him alive, including connecting him to an artificial lung, he died on Friday last week. A hospital spokeswoman said: “Guy’s and St Thomas’s can confirm that the patient with severe respiratory illness due to novel coronavirus … sadly died on Friday 28 June, after his condition deteriorated despite every effort and full supportive treatment.” In May, the World Health Organization (WHO) said that MERS-CoV – is a “threat to the entire world” and experts have raised concerns that the disease is “emerging faster than our understanding.” Latest figures from the WHO, published before the latest UK death, show that since September last year there have been 77 laboratory confirmed cases across nine countries, which have resulted in 40 deaths. British health officials have been advised to be vigilant for severe unexplained respiratory illness in anyone who has recently travelled in the Middle East, as well as any unexplained clusters of such illness. Coronaviruses cause most common colds but can also cause SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome). In 2003, hundreds of people died after a SARS outbreak in Asia. –Guardian [link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]

United Arab Emirates reports its first MERS case

Posted on July 13, 2013by The Extinction Protocol

July 13, 2013 – UAE - An 82-year-old man from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has been hospitalized in Abu Dhabi with a Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) infection, the first patient to be diagnosed and treated within the UAE, according to reports from local media. The UAE’s state news agency Wam said the man was being treated for multiple myeloma when he was diagnosed, The National, an English-language newspaper based in Abu Dhabi. reported today. The latest illness raises the global total to 82 cases, of which 45 have been fatal. Though most MERS-CoV cases have been reported from Saudi Arabia, one patient was an Emirati man who died in Germany in late March after he was diagnosed and treated there. That patient was a 73-year-old man who had an underlying illness. A 65-year-old Frenchman who had traveled to the UAE died in May after his return to France. In other developments, Saudi Arabia’s health ministry today updated its health advice for people making Umrah and Hajj pilgrimages, according to report in Arabic flagged by FluTrackers, an international infectious disease message board. The health ministry urged older people and those with underlying medical conditions such as heart or kidney disease to postpone their visits this year as a precaution in response to the emergence of MERS-CoV. The ministry also urged pregnant women and children to postpone making the pilgrimages. Earlier this year the country asked domestic and foreign Muslim pilgrims to postpone their Hajj and Umrah visits this year due to construction at Mecca’s Grand Mosque. The move sparked speculation that MERS-CoV may have played a role in the government’s request. –CIDRAP [link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]

They want you all vaccinated, they will say that there are people carriers that show no symptoms therefore you all need a vaccination. They will introduce a bill to make it compulsory. I still believe that they are going to expose the population (or already have)to low level chemical agent like mustard gas to mimic this or any flu like sars disease, how would you know the difference? The New York subway gassing could be a trial run, in the future you would not know if they sprayed mustard gas or not as in it's pure form it is colourless and odourless. , it would be next day that you had symptoms.Suddenly New York has an outbreak of a bizarre flu. That is my conspiracy theory

Six new MERS coronavirus cases reported in UAE, Saudi Arabia

Posted on July 19, 2013 by The Extinction Protocol
July 19, 2013 – HEALTH – Health authorities in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia have reported six new cases of the SARS-like coronavirus, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Thursday. The latest infections of four women and two men aged between 26 and 42 bring the global total to 88 cases, including 45 deaths, the United Nations agency said in a statement. Five of the six new cases were health workers and the other was a man who came in close contact with someone who had been infected with the disease, which is known as Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus, or MERS, WHO said. Millions are expected to travel to Mecca in Saudi Arabia in October for the haj pilgrimage. Saudi authorities have cut the number of visas this year, citing safety concerns over expansion work at the main mosque site. The WHO is drawing up advice on travel in relation to coronavirus, to be issued in coming days. It urged health care providers to be vigilant for severe acute respiratory infections and test any recent travelers from the Middle East suffering from such infections for MERS. The global health body has set up an emergency committee of independent experts on MERS, who said on Wednesday it was not a “public health emergency of international concern” for the time being. The committee can make recommendations on travel and trade restrictions, increased disease surveillance and exchange of data. Two of the new coronavirus cases in Abu Dhabi and both cases in Saudi Arabia displayed mild symptoms. The other two in Abu Dhabi had no symptoms of the disease. Cases have also been found in Jordan, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Tunisia, Britain, France, Italy and Germany. –Reuters [link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]

MERS: silence in the gulf

[link to crofsblogs.typepad.com]

Click through to HAAD News, the English website of the Health Authority of Abu Dhabi, and you'll see the most recent news item is dated June 17. Yet The National, a newspaper in the United Arab Emirates, published a report on July 19 about four local doctors who'd contracted MERS. WHO reported the same cases on July 18.
Meanwhile, the Saudi Ministry of Health reports only when it has new cases, when it also slips in any "passed away" cases. Other Gulf states' media are also silent in the face of the new threat.
