VDU’s blog: H7N9 case announcements dropping: is Wave 2 under control? [UPDATED]

In the absence of any other data or a change in climate, I’m proposing that the case decline to a direct effect from the market closure. If that hypothesis is correct, we will see continued decline in cases in Zhejiang and wherever else markets were closed.

That decline in total H7N9 human case announcement began 3-days after Hangzhou markets closed. Given that most cases were accruing from Zhejiang province, I still think that’s a good place to watch.

Vietnamese gov’t urges drastic measures as avian flu breaks out in eight provinces – Xinhua | English.news.cn

In less than three weeks, Vietnamese Prime Minister (PM) has urgently issued two dispatches to authorities at all levels from ministries to sectors and localities over the spread of the disease.

Accordingly, in the latest message sent earlier on Friday, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung urged the establishment of inspection teams to promote anti-bird flu efforts at localities, especially those vulnerable to the epidemic.

The dispatch requested the minister of MARD, who is also the head of the National Steering Committee for Bird Flu Prevention and Control, to take immediate action to prevent the transfer of avian flu to human.

So far this year, Vietnam has reported two cases of human death from A/H5N1 avian flu in southern Binh Phuoc and Dong Thap provinces.

The prime minister urged competent agencies to take samples of poultry at markets to detect avian influenza in a swift manner, while also closely inspecting poultry trading in each locality, reported Vietnam’s state-run news agency.

The World Health Organization and Food and Agriculture Organization have also warned about the risk of A/H7N9 avian flu penetrating Vietnam through northern provinces.

Kafana Samtan Campaign to Restore Al-Saeh Library a Success

It is great that progress has been made and still shameful that power wannabes – trashed the library and used a falsehood to justify their acts meant to impress – NO ONE!

When unknown assailants torched his library on January 3, Father Ibrahim Sarrouj responded by forgiving them. The assailants, supposedly Muslim fundamentalists, accused Father Sarrouj of attacking Islam by publishing a pamphlet claiming that Abu Bakr, Islam’s first caliph, once beat Muhammad’s wife Aisha with a newspaper.

The library in question is Tripoli’s famed Al-Saeh Library, Lebanon’s second largest and home to over 80,000 books of all kind. Despite security forces being notified that Father Ibrahim Sarrouj had been threatened by religious extremists, the library was still badly damaged. No one knows exactly how many books were destroyed, but it is estimated that the number may be as high as two thirds.

The irony is that not only did Father Sarrouj never write such a pamphlet – his library contained and still contains numerous priceless Islamic books – but the supposed event…
