Washington Times Komentar Henry ja. Miller Lipnja 14, http: Cases of H1N1 swine flu continue to appear — especially in Australia , which has seen cases quadruple in a week , with confirmed cases surpassing 1, But that is hardly a surprise.
Flu virus is transmitted more efficiently in cold temperatures , and winter is just beginning in the Southern Hemisphere. But like Rip van Winkle , WHO must have been asleep during that time , because ordinary seasonal flu , which sweeps the world annually — and invariably is far more lethal than the mildly virulent H1N1 swine flu — certainly meets its definition of a pandemic: Something else has been obvious: A warning system based solely on how widely a virus has spread and not considering the nature of the illness it causes is prone to false positives ; it would classify as "pandemics " not only seasonal flu but also the frequent but largely inconsequential outbreaks of virus-caused colds and gastroenteritis , na primjer.
It makes the term almost meaningless. WHO may be well-equipped to perform and report worldwide surveillance — tj. The decisions that need to be made are difficult , encompassing virology , lijek, economics and ethics. Should nations close borders and restrict domestic and international travel and trade?
Given the relatively indolent spread and low virulence of the H1N1 virus , should we rush to prepare vast amounts of vaccine? Ako je tako, what viral isolates should be included in the vaccine , and to whom should it be administered?
The group established standards that were unscientific and excessively stringent and ensure that new , innovative foods will be so expensive to develop that they will remain largely unavailable to the poorest of the poor , who need them most. During a task force meeting , Jorgen Schlundt , director of the WHO department concerned with food safety , zoonoses diseases that spread from animals to humans and food-borne diseases , repeatedly exhorted the group to add ethical concerns about biotech foods to the regulatory barriers that already impede their adoption.
He was more like a witless Monty Python character than an official entrusted with serious international responsibilities — including issues pertaining to swine flu , avian flu , West Nile virus and SARS. The United Nations has become the regulator-wannabe for all manner of products and human activities , from desertification and biodiversity to the regulation of chemicals , uses of the ocean and new genetic varieties of plants.
The result is a more precarious , more dangerous and less resilient world. Poljoprivrednici Postaviti globalni seljak. Argentina je rekao zdravo na svijet opet Studeni 9, Moj Kubanski afera Travanj 12, Dodging Glyphosate-Ban metak Studeni 30, Pored okruglih stolova Obrazac za nominaciju.
