DR Congo Ebola Clinic in North Kivu Attacked

"More than one thousand people have died from Ebola over the past ten months in the Democratic Republic of Congo health workers trying to contain the deadly disease are also under attack on Wednesday militia fighters killed at least eight people in the city of Tembo in the heart of the Bulla outbreak for the latest on how violence against health workers is complicating efforts to combat the disease. We now go to Tarek REBA. He's a field director at the International Rescue Committee, and is currently working on the bull response in the DRC. Welcome to the takeaway Tareq, thanks for having me was this latest attack related to A Bola. What what can you tell us about this attack? We've still gathering information on it that does seem to be some indications that it was once again linked directly to the abode response. But we don't have conclusive information. But yes, there's information pointing to that. What can you tell us about health workers and how they're being attacked right now. I think there's been sort of a gathering storm over several months now and been lots of accusations and rumors about certain activities such as back Saination where people feel that brother than helping them the vaccine may actually be sort of olitical ploy to inject them with A Bola that may be a little reasons for why this response is happening part of this is the cancelling of the election the national election, which was due in December and was held everywhere except in ten and Benny the areas directly affected by the response. And angered a lot of people who felt that they lost the right to vote because of a disease that they're not sure actually exists. How has the conflict in this area impacted efforts to contain Ebola requires a nuance dancer because actually was not necessary conflict area, but the wider area of North Kivu the province of North Korea where this outbreak is often. Of course has been for about twenty five years now. So there's a heavy presence of I'm groups what this does on a day to day basis is that obviously are operating an environment of insecurity and work in that sort of general sense of conflict, how quickly is the disease spreading, and what's the scale essentially of this outbreak right now at this point. This is the second largest outbreak in history. After the great west Africa at them from twenty fourteen fifteen in terms of the transmission rates had been some hope few months ago. But the last three or four months have seen continual increase daily renumber 's we've now had a record of twenty seven cage on a single day. But we've had a number of twenty plus days in the past weeks. We've always known that even when we reach those numbers. There's a lot of transmission that goes undetected. So even when we say twenty seven day that could have been far more cases possibly double as many. So that would put you out of very very high rate of transmission, it would also mean that we basically are complete the unable to to understand how that transmission is happening. And at those numbers, your it requires an enormous response both in terms of being able to detect those cases and being able to work with the communities so that they are transferred. So I think. In terms of level of alarm saw. No, one years bad as west Africa yet, but we should be very very alarmed about the situation right now, there is a vaccine that at least as being used on an investigative basis. Tell us about the vaccine and how successful it's been so far. So I think the vaccine we didn't have it in west Africa. I worked at IBM at the time. And I do think it has been a very useful tool. Especially in the initial months when we look at the one positive thing of this outbreak. It would be the geographic footprint, which has been relatively small all things considered and part of that could be attributed to the success of the vaccination in the in the beginning months of the outbreak. We've also had some recent studies that have come out of the vaccine about one hundred thousand doses have now been administered since the start of this outbreak in August. So we have quite a sample size. Now initial results are very positive positive possibly even more than we would have hoped for us on the one hand they show that those. That are vaccinated have a much lesser probability of contracting Bola. And Secondly in the second finding is more interesting and unexpected is that even for people that may have contracted bowl at the time of their survival rate goes up significantly, so there's a very positive findings. And now we need to make sure the community understands the benefits of axons action. Because recently, we have seen a number people refusing vaccination there a number that circulate around possible malicious intense behind the backs of nation, and that has caused a lot of people into area now to not want to be accented. Where's this infamous information coming from? I know the questions of room is very complicated. One we've been dealing with this this very much been politicized Asian around the rumors. So as mentioned, I think the election is one point clear contention that because this is a largely opposition held area. That may be for example. Uil a intent against those people for being positioned supporters. So a lot of those rumors come from there. And I do think we didn't do a good job of tackling them. And we need to improve in our community engagement in terms of working with communities in dispelling, the rumors and being very transparent and being very clear not messaging where do you see the bullet crisis headed after this? I think there's a reason for pessimism at the moment. The number of targeted incidents in the Tampa area has made it almost impossible to work. We're trying to resume and now we have renewed incident again, which is base. So I think for number of us. It's very difficult to see how things can move forward

This is a region that's been terrorized by different militia for over two decades. So it's difficult for health workers to get to certain villages.

One of the major problems is that you're dealing with terrorists population people who've been tapped by different groups, and it's difficult for them to trust the people in the responses very little trust in institutions and authorities for very good reason. And there are lots of rumors about the army and the police being involved with the rebel groups.

"Because of presume if gotta worry about all the instrumentation being fried, they conditions are pretty brutal, the actual plasma or the coronal material that you see that is at about three million degrees centigrade. So we do have to worry about the temperatures, but we have this amazing heat shield and our instruments that are in the shade. If you like of that heat shield, they are at about a pretty nice thirty degrees centigrade. So standard spacecraft ranges, once you're in signed, the kinds of measurements. Can the machine take that will explain the physics of what's going on in the kroner where carrying instruments with us to measure changes in the sun's magnetic field and the region that we're really targeting is kind of a transition region very close to the sun. Magnetic field rotates with the sun. All of that coronal material is kinda stuck to those field lines. And so it all sort of rotates together in this transition region where this heating is going on the material itself get so energized that it is excel A-Rated and it moves away from the sun, and it actually carries the sun's magnetic field with it. And so it's kind of this transition from where the magnetic field is dominant to where the material itself is dominating the magnetic field. We also have instruments that measure the solar wind itself, the bulk plasma, if you think of the solar wind is a river, we're measuring that water that is continually flowing downstream. We're measuring the temperature, the density, the composition, and also the speed of that coronal material that makes up the solar wind. And so in the sense, all those measurements are going to probe into how the heat of the sun gets focused on transformed into the very high temperatures in the kroner into the very strong winds that we.

That's what you gene Parker suggested sixty years ago that's important, or are there reasons of living better here on earth that make this also worth?

"So I new study suggests that, well, it's tactic would indeed cool the earth, and there would be a benefit to the cross from the cooling to be canceled out, largely cancelled out by reduced crop yields because there's less sunlight food available for the plants to first synthesized. I since this is the way that plants each sunlight and turn it into stuff that we can eat on this. If the sunlight is more diffuse, it turns out is probably hard might be hard for them to do that. So they they like it to be cooler, but they still need bright sunlight. How do they know this? Well, there's a lovely sort of natural approach for this which is kind of corruption. Civil eruptions spew sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere. So what scientists did is they seize the opportunity to look at to fairly recent eruptions Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines and lunch Ninety-one in another one in Mexico in nineteen eighty two. And then look back at agricultural records and see what happened and feed that inter computer model of what what. What happened and looking ahead to twenty fifty twenty sixty nine. They said, well, the does get cooler and there's a positive effect, but yields also full lousy counseling benefit, which is not what people expected because we know that forest plants do seem to do better after volcanic eruptions. The earth is a very complicated system and it might be you end up doing from this, but it'll be a very complicated cost benefit analysis Clinton very much. Of course, the carbon dioxide is part of the problem with global warming. The other part of it is the son and this weekend Nassar is launching a space probe that will touch the very face of the sun dipping into the tenuous gaps above it's bright surface where temperatures can rise to millions of degrees. Eclipse-watchers get to see this crown Reich coronal region in circling the moon at totality during an eclipse. And when we see Rory in the sky were seeing the effects of solar wind this blown out by the corona. So traveling the one hundred fifty million kilometres. Measure its behavior. It's been the dream of a stronger sense. Eugene Parker first postulated, the region's physics sixty years ago, the birth of the space age project scientists. Nikki Faulk says it's entirely appropriate that the mission is named after him. Jean Parker is really to me the father of the solar wind. We'd saw a beautiful solar eclipse last year, and we saw that lovely hazy atmosphere around the sun, and we call that the corona and there's two mysteries in the corona. One is that it is about three hundred times hotter than the surface of the sun, which just doesn't make sense. If you walk away from a heat source, you should get colder, not hotter. So we know there's some physics that's going on in there that's causing this heating and also where we see this great heating, this whole atmosphere starts to expand and it accelerates away from the sun. And that was what Jean Parker actually predicted that this corona will be continually accelerated and expand out and really Baid all of the planets in this what he called adventure. The solar wind. And so getting into this region where the physics is really happening where the solar wind is born, where all of this is driven is what we absolutely need to do to be able to once. And for all say, why is this heating and acceleration taking place in this region close to the son of your idea is the parka solar probe effectively, it's going to dip into that crow, very near to the surface of it. Yes, that's absolutely right. We will do twenty four orbits. They looked like the petals of the flower. So we come very close to the sun on one side and then out around Venus on the other. And we kind of repeat that twenty four times every time we can fly past Venus, and we do that seven times where we do a gravity assist. We kind of shrink the size of those petals. So we actually get closer and closer to the sun Antill at our final closest approach. We are at six point two million kilometers above the sun surface, and I realized that that doesn't sound that close, but the earth. Earth and the sun or a long way apart. And if we put the earth and the sun on a meter scale, parka solar probe would be just four centimeters away from the sun. What are the conditions like that?.

And this is a lovely, a New York date from an iconic, long experiment in behavior where scientists were trying to understand how domestication happens, how to animals become tame. You know why? Why? It took so friendly towards us what they've been doing. The Russell Russian institute cytology genetics since nineteen Fifty-nine is selectively reading Siberian, silver, foxes, animals that are tamer so wanted the for the ones that didn't bite when they put things in the cages.

They've merged do now another team, the university of Illinois. We have sequenced genomes of these FOX's compared them and is helping sort of zoom in on some of the genes. So genetic basis of this, this behavior of this, this team, this basically, they've been selectively breeding the animals, which will be more friendly or less friendly, but fact we'll be changing their genomes. Yes, exactly. And so they've what they found is fascinating. So some of the genetic regions overlap with regions, equipment, regions in dogs. So that's a nice link there. There's also an interesting link with humans. Some of the genome areas of luck with areas in the human genome that are associated with the conditions like autism bipolar disorder and a condition called Williams syndrome, which makes people extremely sociable, friendly or maybe so such an extraordinary extremity even to start, it's been going on for years and years and years and a has being visiting it because it's such a fascinating project. And you know, now that they've much actually pick out one of the genes and have a look and see what it does.

And they called an alpha particle which is two protons and neutrons. These up subatomic particles at a spat out of unstable atomic nuclei, and this alpha particle is actually just helium. Helium nucleus, and Ernest Rutherford shows this at the star of the twentieth century. So those are our main reservoirs. They come from radioactive rocks, but they're increasingly being depleted and his actually a bit of a world shortage of helium at the moment, and it's really important gas. We need it for kinds of applications, MRI machines. So the sources of it running out was actually real problem. Harry, cliff, of course, running out is not a problem at the sun, nor is it a problem Joop through the other gas, giant planets who's strong gravitational field. Keep a good hold on the helium and this some kind of neat. Symmetry in this one hundred fiftieth anniversary year. Sternum is reported citing helium in the atmosphere of a remote exoplanet. Here's one of them Jessica speak. It was quite a joy actually to find this element in a very similar way to Norman here, not on very. Close, very bright hostal, but in fact, on a distant planet orbiting around a faint star, several hundred light years away technique remains the same as one of using spectra scope to use his language. Exactly. Yeah. No, you better told me which planted harshly is say wasp. One seven be is the name of the planet. The planet itself is nearly as big as Jupiter, but it only has twelve percent of its masters, very lead density. Very big Inari basically, very puffy planet. Yes. How important is it? Because he's a, I a found helium around one of these distant Tech's planets because presumably they were all made with the same kind of helium as the sun and the stars were made with many of these gas shine exit parents. We found we expect them to have a lot helium in them just like the gas giant time. It's in our own. So listen. I mean, it was great to finally have that confirmed, but that's not the only important it's now what we can do. What questions we can answer with this new. Oh element that we can probe in these atmospheres. In particular, the helium that we found extends in a very huge cloud surrounding was one I seventy. And so this is a new way to study up atmospheres of extra Connex, which in the past has been quite difficult to do. So it's a good way paps see additional Exo planets and possibly to study the physics of the ones we already know exactly. One pundits receive a lot of high energy radiation from the star. It can heat up the upper layers of the atmosphere, and that makes them rapidly expand and potentially escape into space. And so that's what we're seeing. We think we're seeing with west one. I seven b. I'm one of the very important questions trying to answer in actually planet science is how long can planets hold onto the atmosphere's when they orbit active stars. And this can tell us about the story of the volition of these exit atmospheres and perhaps can tell us how. How long an earth sized planet around a small star could hold onto atmosphere, Stroman, Jessica, speak of Exeter university. Now, keeping.

"Either safety mass vaccination, you might not be quite as strict with them into will stream doses that sort of thing to, you know, setting up vaccination places in border crossings, refugee counts, all sorts of stuff can help get vaccines to the people that Saddam per need. Very, we're in consideration. Clan. Thanks for much for the moment. Now helium is. Wonderful and weird element. It makes them a quarter of all the known stuff of the universe and of the son, and yet down here on earth. It makes them just North Point nor nor nor five percent of the atmosphere barely wave. It's light enough to float away without a trace. It doesn't react with anything where almost so chemists completely fail to notice it as they built up the periodic table in the nineteenth century, it was left to astronomers to do the hard work and they did that one hundred fifty years ago. This week, Adam Rutherford has been getting the low down from Harry cliff, the science museum in London. So the eighteenth of August eighteen sixty eight. It's the first solar eclipse whether had chance to use spectrum goats to look at the sun and people were very excited about this. So in India, in good as French astronomer. Jules Johnson who is pointing his spectroscopy at the limb of the sons, the age of the sun's disk during the total totality phase of eclipse. And as he's looking through the spectrum, he sees this bright yellow line which doesn't appear to match. Any known elements at the time, and there's ideas that it might be people thinking. Maybe it's sodium and some other element that exists on earth and a few weeks later, Norman Lockyer industry, no male using his own spectrum scope, which is just in front of us here sees the same yellow line, and eventually concludes this actually isn't caused by any known element on earth is something new, which lock your calls helium after the Greek titan of the sun heels. I found that the yellow line behaved quite differently from the red or the blue line. So then we knew that we were not dealing with hydrogen. So as I'm picking up, you can see it. It's a lovely piece of what we call brass and glasses. Very nice example of that kind of brass disk with to chew one which was used to bring the sunlight in from the telescope, and then there's sunlight bounces round. These seven prisons actually goes around twice and then comes out the other into into the peace and it. If you look very, very carefully at the spectrum of sunlight, you'll see these dark lines crossing the multicolored spectrum, and it was realized in the nineteenth century. These dark lines are kind of like a unique bar code for different chemical elements. So hydrogen produced a certain set of lines in a certain position and calcium producer certain set lines and sodium. So this is the main method by which we know the composition of the sun. The stars and astronomical bodies is also used in chemistry on earth, and that was what allowed look here using this instrument to see this yellow line very accurately and see that it didn't quite match with the other lines around it, which were the lines caused by Spielman sodium. And that's eventually what leads him to conclude. This is something totally new. We've not seen before it took nearly three decades after the first discovery to identify the existence of helium on earth in one thousand nine hundred five hoping to produce argon, the Scottish chemists, William Ramsay exposed the uranium laced mineral cleave out to acids and collected the resulting gases, luckier confirmed that these gases contain traces of helium..

"This podcast. Welcome to the science our on. Roland Pease ready to head off on a grand tour of science, health and technology could see if the BBC were racing to the sun and to the edge of the solar system will be seeking music for the hawk. We'll be protecting crops from invasive species, but we are in danger of running out of gas is actually a world shortage of helium at the moment, and it's really important gas needed for kinds of applications. MRI machines, particle physics experiments are the one I work on. Sarah sources of it running out was actually a real problem. Well, that's the physics of it all, but my CD our guest today is science nights at Ainsworth here to keep my biosciences straight. You've got the qualifications, which I haven't. Actually, we do need that. We 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. So what's going to happen next? So we have more than twenty people. Now in that critical town of Beni, which is our initial base of operations. We've established an incident management structure across the three levels of the organization. We've advanced funding to the field, so they have the resources to begin to respond..
