Congo’s latest Ebola outbreak taking place in a war zone

"Start with the new and very worrying outbreak of the abode of virus in the Democratic Republic of Congo is just two weeks ago, the authorities they had to Clinton early outbreak in the west of the country to be over that success was put down to the rapid response approach device after the poorly contained epidemic in west Africa in two thousand thirteen to two thousand sixteen, but now more than two and a half thousand kilometers way in north key province near the border of Uganda, they've been thirty six deaths as we record this program, some of which have already been confirmed as Ebola. It's the same strain as before, but the outbreaks probably not actually linked the problem in dealing with it as the deputy director of emergency preparedness. Peter Salama. The World Health Organization told Claudia Hammond is this outbreak is going to be far more challenging to contain and even riskier. For the medical staff involved. The outbreak is centered around Mela beco- health zone, and particularly around us Motown cooled, men Geena. That really is the epicenter of the outbreak. We are however, receiving notifications of suspected cases that go beyond this particular healthy area and health zone. So they're being investigated in there more than thirty suspected cases currently. That this outbreak is completely separate from the one that was only declared over a couple of weeks ago. Is it because it's it's so far away across the other side of the country. We don't have definitive evidence as yet, but nor do we have any reason to believe that these outbreaks connected the distance between Ecuador, province and north keeping provinces is around two thousand five hundred kilometers. We know that this outbreak is likely to have taken off towards the end of July, and there were no active cases in the Equitor outbreak. After early Jews, how worrying is this new outbreak? This outbreak is extremely concerning in the Ecuador outbreak. I spoke of number of complicating factors, logistics affected health workers were infected early, which is, of course a ruse fan publication. The fact that the sites were much close to forested area. The fact that we have multiple sides simultaneously to address in terms of outbreak response. The fact that we also had proximity to Buddha's. So in this outbreak in northern kiva province, we have all of the above, but above and beyond. All of that here, the biggest constraint is security. There are more than one hundred groups in the North Kivu province more than twenty highly active and there is of operation really of Aleppo. Unfortunately, we've many of the areas which we're going to have to cover to reach all of the context out of the eight million population of northern kiva. One million people are internally displaced, so it's a population on the move, so that must make it much more difficult to work with communities. If you've got communities. So broken up on areas of conflict, metro difficult, much of this province is in UN security level for and what that means in practice is that many of the roads will have to travel alone who require escorts. Now, staff will require security, pistol protective equipments and not just the regular PP. We're used to using any Bill. Outbreaks to protect from infection, and we'll be relying heavily on the UN to help us with negotiations if needs be with some of the armed groups in order to access the population.

"Hopefully later this year and at the same time nasice asari srx croft is also making its way to another asteroid cooled bend new uh which is three hundred thousand columbus his way i guess that's kind of near an asteroid terms and these missions will look at what they can find out about the origin of the solar system through characterizing these asteroids a little bit more and even maybe look at the commercial implications if we could mind these asteroids for useful rare elements for example bus or social nutrition prospect but it's this idea fought the asteroids also debris leftover of reconstruction frei's offer services of a makes him so interesting idea that they're bits that uh maybe flew off when the plants we created or were not quite coalesced into planets themselves and so there it that the lodge belts of the solar system that is made up of these these objects that could the could tell us something about the origins or carry author a storm these going through a brilliant rem i suppose with these planetary missions of hacked free bucks for the barber mount surgery is invasive and in here thirdly risky but how risky depends hugely on the circumstances under which is performed unease studies revealed that twice as many people died hearing all off to operations in africa them on average globally even though the patients that tend to be younger and the surgery is typically mina ticket a snapshot of what's happening the research is also almost two hundred fifty hospitals in 25 african countries to document every operation for a week and how the patients fed off towards the results a striking but the study did covered just one week so claudia hammond off lead author bruce because what would be typical of the year where we have to do to try and make it as representative as possible was include all surgeries grenade week the does give us even though the snapchat benny good idea what's her name in surgeries of costa us both in africa and were you surprised at the rate of complications after century that he saw.

"There is no cure for huntington's but the niece this week concerns and experimental drug injected into a patients spinal fluid that might halt its progression that important step hasn't been proven yet but the early stage trials conducted at nine centers in the uk germany and canada seemed to show that patients can safely be given the monthly injections as rotor barca professor of clinical neuroscience at the university of cambridge talked claudia hammond it's a trial ready a feasibility and taller than it is what we call was could safety is always very difficult to judge when you have such few a numbers of patients but in essence what people have tried to do in this trial of which we've been appalled is they have injected into the fluid around the spine and the brian cycled csa drug which interacts with the message between the gene and the protein so a gene cage for a protein in this process by which that happens and what this does this socalled and he sends is it recognizes specifically the protein huntington binds to it and then takes it away so the idea is actually stops the gene from expressing the protein which causes the disease so how much do we know so far about whether that actually happens whether it actually works so what we know from the trial in the press release which came out yesterday which goes so much excitement was we know that this procedure of injecting this into the spinal fluid seems very well tolerated that no major safety concerns or problems with patients running into side effects and the measure of whether it's engaging with what it said to be doing i reducing the level of this protein has been chained to be the case namely ihd's reducing the level of the protein what we don't know is whether that makes any difference to the patient in terms of how quickly the disease progresses in that individual presumably we'd expect it to make a difference i mean jimmy that's what we'll be child next but it is making a difference to that pertain you would expect it to they make a difference to the patient symptoms can you would expect it to make a difference but there are thus bys are to caveats that right.
