Survey: Most Americans concerned about avian flu

Posted On Nov 18 2020 by

first_imgFeb 27, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – More than half of Americans are concerned about the threat of avian influenza reaching the United States, but few are “very concerned” and fewer still have looked into getting an antiviral drug to protect themselves, according to a survey from the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH).In a nationally representative sample of 1,043 people taken in late January, 42% described themselves as “somewhat concerned” and 15% as “very concerned” about the avian flu threat, according to a Harvard news release.However, only 2% had asked their physician about the use of oseltamivir (Tamiflu) or other antiviral drugs for protection from avian flu, and fewer than 0.5% had obtained a prescription.Only about one fifth of the respondents (21%) were worried that they or a family member would contract avian flu within the next year; 78% were unconcerned about that. For comparison, 12% were worried about this risk in a survey taken in December 2004, about a year after avian flu began to spread widely and cause human illnesses in East Asia.Fifty-nine percent thought that avian flu was likely to occur among wild birds in the United States over the next year, while 38% viewed this as unlikely. However, a 53% majority thought it unlikely that the virus would hit farm-raised poultry in this country. Forty-four percent thought poultry would be affected, though only 17% expected that outbreaks would be widespread.Close to two thirds of those polled (64%) thought it unlikely that there would be human cases of avian flu in the United States within the next year. Thirty-four percent thought this was likely, and 14% expected widespread human cases.The respondents were asked what they would do if avian flu did hit the poultry industry or led to human illness in the United States. Close to half (46%) of those who ate poultry said they would stop eating it if poultry outbreaks occurred.Most of those surveyed said that if human cases occurred in their state, they would reduce or avoid travel (75%), avoid public events (71%), try to get a prescription for Tamiflu or other antivirals (68%), and stay at home and keep their children at home during the outbreak (68%).In the Harvard news release, Robert J. Blendon, director of the survey, said this type of response “would likely slow the spread of the disease, but it would also have major impact on the state’s economy and healthcare system.” Blendon is a professor of health policy and political analysis at HSPH.A 54% majority of Americans follow news media coverage of avian flu closely, according to the results. Nearly the same proportion—53%—said the media were giving the subject about the right level of coverage, while 27% said the media were exaggerating it and 11% said they were underplaying it.A 69% majority of the respondents were aware that human cases of avian flu had occurred in Asia, and 73% knew there had been no cases in the Untied States. However, 15% thought human cases had already occurred in this country.Michael T. Osterholm, PhD, MPH, a leading advocate of preparedness for pandemic flu, called the survey “an important study in that it begins to track the American understanding of both avian influenza specifically and the general concern regarding preparedness for a future influenza pandemic.” Osterholm is director of the University of Minnesota Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy, publisher of the CIDRAP Web site.However, he said the survey reflects some public confusion about avian flu and its relationship to the risk of a human flu pandemic. “To most citizens it’s not clear what avian influenza really means as a human health threat,” he said. “They still see this as largely a poultry problem with only occasional transmission to humans.”Thus, most people see the threat to the United States as a possible expansion of the Asian situation, in which widespread bird outbreaks could lead to occasional human cases, Osterholm said, adding, “It’s much more than that.”The immediate risk in the United States “will be much lower [than in Asia] because we’ll have a much lower rate of disease in poultry and much less human exposure,” he said. “But what the public health community is worried about is not that; it’s the risk of a pandemic with avian influenza as the cause. It’s about the birds, but it’s not about the birds. The real concern has to be about the future.”The survey was funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.See also:Harvard news release, with links to the full survey results read more

Decline in US flu activity accelerates

Posted On Nov 18 2020 by

first_imgApr 10, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – The spring decline of US influenza activity picked up speed last week, when only four states still reported widespread flu activity, down from 13 a week earlier, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported today.Eighteen states reported regional flu activity for the week that ended Apr 4, while another 20 had only local activity, the agency said. The rest of the states had only sporadic cases or didn’t report. The states still dealing with widespread flu were Alabama, New York, Virginia, and Washington.Despite some problems with antiviral resistance, this season appears to have been a fairly mild one, at least in comparison with last year, when two of the three flu strains in the vaccine didn’t match up well with the viruses making people sick.Medical visits to the CDC’s network of sentinel providers for treatment of influenza-like illness (ILI) this season have run well below last season. A chart in the CDC report shows that the proportion of visits for ILI this season peaked in February at about 3.5% of all visits, whereas at last year’s peak, also in February, ILI accounted for about 6% of all medical visits. Last week the proportion of visits ascribed to ILI was 1.6%, well below the epidemic threshold of 2.4%.Two flu-related deaths in children were reported last week, one each in Illinois and Virginia, the CDC reported. That brings the seasonal total to 45 deaths, which is well below the overall toll of 88 for the 2007-08 season and 78 for 2006-07.Of the 45 children who died, 27 were tested for secondary bacterial infections, and 12 tested positive. Eight of these had Staphylococcus aureus infections, three of which involved methicillin-resistant (MRSA) strains.In another sign of a fairly mild season, flu-related hospitalization rates for children under age 4 this season have been well below those of last season, the CDC report shows. Through Mar 21, data from the New Vaccine Surveillance Network show the rate for this season was 1.46 hospitalizations per 10,000 children.Flu-related hospitalization rates for adults this season also were well below last season’s level, according to data from the CDC’s Emerging Infections Program (EIP). Rates for adults this year were fairly close to those recorded in 2006-07, a chart based on EIP data shows.As for overall flu-related deaths, 7.4% of deaths reported through the CDC’s 122-city mortality surveillance system last week were attributed to pneumonia and influenza, which is below the epidemic threshold of 7.8%, the CDC said. A chart shows that the percentage of deaths attributed to pneumonia and flu never surpassed the epidemic threshold this season, whereas it hovered above that level for several weeks last season.Continuing a trend of the past several weeks, influenza B viruses were the most common type identified last week, though type A viruses have been predominant in the season overall. Of 348 viruses that were typed, 203 (58.3%) were type B. For the whole season, 67.9% of isolates have been type A and 32.1% type B.Most of the type B viruses tested this year have not been a good match for the B strain in this year’s vaccine. The latest numbers show that of 263 type B viruses that have been antigenically characterized, 50 belonged to the Yamagata lineage used in the vaccine, while 213 belonged to the Victoria lineage and were not related to the vaccine strain.However, all influenza A isolates that the CDC has studied have been well matched to the strains in this year’s vaccine. These include 594 A/H1N1 viruses and 88 A/H3N2 isolates, the CDC reports.Among influenza A viruses, the H1N1 subtype has predominated over H3N2 this season. That may be a factor in the relatively mild season, as experts say that seasons tend to be more severe when H3N2 viruses dominate.Today’s report shows a continuation of the season-long pattern of oseltamivir (Tamiflu) resistance in H1N1 viruses. It says 694 of 699 (99.3%) tested H1N1 isolates showed resistance to the drug, while all tested H3N2 and B viruses have been sensitive to oseltamivir and the other neuraminidase inhibitor, zanamivir (Relenza). The resistance findings prompted the CDC to revise its recommendations for antiviral treatment in December.Nearly all H1N1 isolates tested this season have been sensitive to the older antiviral drugs, amantadine and rimantadine. However, all tested H3N2 viruses have shown resistance to those drugs.See also: CDC flu update read more

The tourism and hospitality sector is on the verge of collapse, and at the same time we are paying the highest VAT rate in Europe

Posted On Nov 18 2020 by

first_imgAfter the meeting, the President of the Independent Association of Caterers Marin Medak and the President of the Association of Caterers of Primorje-Gorski Kotar County Vedran Jakominić presented the requests to the Government of the Republic of Croatia and relevant institutions, with the aim of saving the tourism sector finds before complete collapse. “Precisely because of this alarming situation, it is time for the Government to finally start a dialogue with the representatives of the caterers. ”reports from the Coordination of Croatian Caterers. CATERER’S APPEAL: THE SEASON IS BORN, WE MISS WORKERS “We have the absolute highest VAT rate on food preparation and serving in the Mediterranean and one of the highest rates in the European Union. We demand an urgent reduction of that rate to 13%, as well as the abolition of the consumption tax of 3% because these rates prevent us from adequately paying the domestic workers we want to employ instead of foreigners. We are in tax scissors that do not allow us to develop and destroy not only our sector but also tourism as a key branch of the Croatian economy. Our income is practically nationalized through high taxes and benefits, and all risks and obligations remain with us. Our initiative has now grown into an active Coordination of Croatian caterers as a result of the urgent need for change”, Said the president of the Independent Association of Caterers Marin Medak. The caterers are asking for an urgent meeting with the Government. A working meeting with key stakeholders was held in Zagreb today, organized by the Coordination of Croatian Caterers, at which the problems faced by Croatian caterers were discussed and a message was sent to the Government that VAT on food preparation and serving must be urgently reduced from the current 25%. at 13%. Related news:center_img The working meeting was attended by representatives of the Association of Taxpayers Lipa, Croatian Tourism Association, Association of Independent Employers, Coordination of Producers of Spirits at HUP, representative of the Federation of Independent Trade Unions of Croatia Mladen Novosel, suppliers and many Croatian caterers. The coordination of Croatian caterers consists of caterers throughout Croatia, including the initiators of the initiative Association for Catering and Tourism of Međimurje, Association of Caterers Dubrovnik, Independent Association of Caterers and Association of Caterers of Primorje-Gorski Kotar County. It was said that measures such as the introduction of a quota for foreign workers are only a temporary solution, while Croatia needs a quality and long-term strategy for the development of tourism and hospitality that will enable Croatian workers to stay in Croatia instead of going abroad. Photo: “If we compare the distribution of catering turnover in Croatia and in comparable Mediterranean countries, the total share of the state and workers in transport is almost the same (59% vs. 58%), but when we pay attention to the net amount a worker receives, we get the answer where the money is. A worker in our country receives exactly 50% of the amount he could receive, and the entire difference is appropriated by the state. It is humiliating to watch people leave the country, while messages come from the Government that it is the employer who is insatiable. According to Fina, just over 120 entrepreneurs had 882.884 employees last year, a turnover of around HRK 680 billion, and a profit of HRK 22 billion (or 3%). It is clear that money is not with us. We expect that in cooperation with all stakeholders – small breweries, winemakers, family farms and unions, we will succeed in our intention to defend our economy. To direct revenues to our colleagues and domestic producers and thus strengthen the economy, but also reduce dependence on tourism.”, Concluded the president of the Association of Caterers of the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County Vedran Jakominić.
