Biological Hazard in Spain on Thursday, 10 April, 2014 at 03:07 (03:07 AM) UTC.

Description
According to the Provincial Council of Bizkaia, 8 workers from the landfill of Monte Anaiz, in the municipal district of Bilbao, are suffering from Q fever related to the presence of remains of cattle in the waste. In addition to the 8 confirmed cases, 25 are pending study. An initial focus of the outbreak has been recently traced to the Mechanical Biological Treatment Plant at Monte Anaiz and a 2nd cluster is located in Berriatua, where up to 10 people may have been infected. The outbreak is due to the fact that animal remains not intended for human consumption (byproducts such as heads, or goat and sheep hides) repeatedly enter the processing plant mixed in with urban waste. The symptoms of Q fever are similar to those of a flu, although sometimes it also affects the liver. The Basque Government and the Provincial Government of Bizkaia, in a coordinated manner, have adopted measures to control the outbreak. Extreme precaution is being taken and diagnostic tests have been applied to all staff and subcontractors as a preventive measure. Authorities are trying to identify the origin of these products, a difficult task, because the animal remains have come in garbage bags from which the identification tags have been removed.
Biohazard name: Q Fever
Biohazard level: 3/4 Hight
Biohazard desc.: Bacteria and viruses that can cause severe to fatal disease in humans, but for which vaccines or other treatments exist, such as anthrax, West Nile virus, Venezuelan equine encephalitis, SARS virus, variola virus (smallpox), tuberculosis, typhus, Rift Valley fever, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, yellow fever, and malaria. Among parasites Plasmodium falciparum, which causes Malaria, and Trypanosoma cruzi, which causes trypanosomiasis, also come under this level.
Symptoms:
Status: confirmed

Signs and symptoms

Incubation period is usually two to three weeks.[8] The most common manifestation is mild flu-like symptoms with abrupt onset of fever, malaise, profuse perspiration, severe headache, myalgia (muscle pain), joint pain, loss of appetite, upper respiratory problems, dry cough, pleuritic pain, chills, confusion and gastrointestinal symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. The fever lasts approximately seven to 14 days.[citation needed]

Approximately half of infected individuals exhibit no symptoms.[8]

During its course, the disease can progress to an atypical pneumonia, which can result in a life-threatening acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), whereby such symptoms usually occur during the first four to five days of infection.[citation needed]

Less often, Q fever causes (granulomatous) hepatitis, which may be asymptomatic or becomes symptomatic with malaise, fever, liver enlargement (hepatomegaly) and pain in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen. Whereas transaminase values are often elevated, jaundice is uncommon. Retinal vasculitis is a rare manifestation of Q fever.[9]

The chronic form of Q fever is virtually identical to inflammation of the inner lining of the heart (endocarditis),[10] which can occur months or decades following the infection. It is usually fatal if untreated. However, with appropriate treatment, the mortality falls to around 10%.

Clinical signs in animals

Cattle, goats and sheep are most commonly infected, and can serve as a reservoir for the bacteria. Q fever is a well recognized cause of abortions in ruminants and in pets. C. burnetii infection in dairy cattle has been well documented and its association with reproductive problems in these animals has been reported in Canada, USA, Cyprus, France, Hungary, Japan, Switzerland and West Germany.[11] For instance, in a study published in 2008,[12]a significant association has been shown between the herds’ seropositivity and typical clinical signs of Q Fever observed such as abortion, stillbirth, weak calves and repeat breeding. Moreover, experimental inoculation of C. burnetii in cattle induced not only respiratory disorders and cardiac failures (myocarditis) but also frequent abortions and irregular repeat breedings.[13]

Quake of 6.4 magnitude strikes 72 miles off Japan

TOKYO | Sun Jun 17, 2012 5:29pm EDT

(Reuters) – A 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Japan early on Monday, the U.S. Geological Survey said, but there were no immediate reports of damage.

USGS put the quake 115 km (72 miles) southeast of Morioka on Japan’s Pacific coast, and 31 km deep.

The Japan Meteorological Agency put it at magnitude 6.1, and slightly deeper at 40 km (25 miles).

The quake was rated only 4 on Japan’s seven-point seismic scale, suggesting that no significant damage was expected, and no tsunami warning was issued.

Volcanic Activity

Bukittingi, W Sumatra, June 17 (ANTARA) – Mount Marapi in West Sumatra province spewed volcanic ash up to 500 meters into the sky on Sunday morning.

“The volcano spewed volcanic ash for about 10 minutes starting at around 08.30 a.m.,” Mubarak, who lived on the slope of the volcano said on Sunday.

“The volcanic ash fell on around the volcano`s slope,” he said.

Before spewing volcanic ash, the 2,891-meter high volcano released white thick smoke as high as 50 meters from its crater, he said.

Since its alert status was raised on August 3, 2011, the volcano had spewed white smoke and volcanic ash almost everyday, he said.

The Bukittinggi Center for Volcanology and Geological Disaster Mitigation (PVMBG) still maintains the volcano`s alert status at the second highest alert level.

“PVMBG still recommends keeping the volcano at the second highest alert status and declaring it off-limits to anyone climbing within 3 km of its peak,” PVMBG officer Warseno said.

The volcano has spewed thick smoke and volcanic ash almost every day since it began showing signs of increased activity on August 3, 2011.

Mt Marapi is one of the active volcanoes in West Sumatra. It sent out sulfuric volcanic ash 1,000 meters into the sky on August 3 last year. The ash fell onto a number of areas, such as Agam, Tanahdatar, Padangpariaman, and Padangpanjang.

The volcano last erupted in 2005.

When inactive, the mountains adjacent to Mt Singgalang and Mt Tandikek have always been a destination for climbers from within and outside West Sumatra. Also, every New Years, it is always crowded with mountain climbers. (ANTARA)

Volcano Activity in Mexico on Saturday, 16 June, 2012 at 17:39 (05:39 PM) UTC.

Description
Mexico’s Popocatepetl volcano is showing more signs of activity. Nighttime footage from a permanent camera set up near the volcano showed it was belching out incandescent rocks and smoke. The National Center for Disaster Prevention has registered 68 exhalations of gas vapor and ash of medium intensity coming from the volcano in the last 24 hours. The volcano can also bee seen spewing ash in daytime footage. The volcanic mountain sits roughly halfway between Mexico City and Puebla with some 25 million people living within a 60-mile radius. Popo, as it is commonly known, has erupted small amounts of ash almost daily since activity began in 1994. Officials have not ordered any evacuations.

Description
Authorities are evacuating about 150 homes in eastern San Diego County as firefighters battle a wind-driven wildfire that has destroyed one structure. The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection says the fire began Sunday afternoon in a rural area northeast of Campo and near the Golden Acorn Casino. It has consumed 200 acres of brush. Capt. Daryll Pina said the fire has destroyed one structure, but he hasn’t been able to confirm what it was. Officials shut down the road to the casino and patrons are being urged to stay inside. Meanwhile, a 2,200-acre wildfire that erupted Saturday in a remote area of Riverside County is 70 percent contained. Authorities say they expect full containment of the blaze burning between Beaumont and San Jacinto Monday morning.

Crews continue to battle a wildfire that has burned at least 2,200 acres of brush in a remote area of Riverside County. Fire department spokeswoman Jody Hagemann says Sunday that the blaze, burning steep terrain between Beaumont and San Jacinto, is not threatening any homes. At least 445 firefighters aided by five air tankers and five water-dropping helicopters have contained about 30 percent of the fire. The fire was reported Saturday afternoon. Winds moving at up to 20 mph helped the flames spread to 2,000 acres in five hours. Hagemann says the cause of the fire is under investigation.

Details

 

 

Forest / Wild Fire in USA on Monday, 18 June, 2012 at 03:15 (03:15 AM) UTC.

Description
The fire burning behind Lake George in Park County is now 200 acres, and it is 0% contained. According to a park ranger for the Pike National Forest, the 11 mile canyon has been evacuated. That is between 150 and 200 homes. Everyone else in that area is under pre-evacuation orders. That means they must be ready to evacuate at a moment’s notice. County road 96 and 92 at Highway 24 are both shut down right now. That fire started around noon on the Indian Paintbrush Ranch. We’ve heard several reports from witnesses who say they saw someone fire shots, and that may have hit a propane tank causing an explosion. But, Park Rangers say they are still investigating what caused this fire. Among the evacuees, about 500 campers with Camp Alexander. They were at 11 mile canyon. The Camp Director tells us they are all safely out of the fire’s reach. Those campers are from all over Colorado, and out of state. They will have to stay the night at Woodland Park High School and/or Middle School. There are more than 40 firefighters fighting this fire, and witnesses say they have also seen drops from helicopters.

18.06.2012 Forest / Wild Fire Greece Attica, [Keratea region] Damage level
Details

 

 

Forest / Wild Fire in Greece on Sunday, 17 June, 2012 at 05:06 (05:06 AM) UTC.

Description
A fire aided by strong winds has burned several houses near the town of Keratea, 30 miles south of Athens, authorities said. Two firefighters have been injured, one with extensive burns, but no civilian casualties have been reported. The blaze started on Saturday afternoon on dried grass, apparently as the result of an accident and was spreading fast, engulfing four isolated houses on the outskirts of the towns of Keratea and Palea Fokaia and threatening others. Because of the high winds, two firefighting planes sent to help put out the fire were unable to operate and replaced by one helicopter and four newer planes, according to a statement by the fire brigade. It said 74 firefighting vehicles were operating on the ground. Firefighters called the situation “hellish” and said the fire will not stop until it reaches the sea, about three miles south-west. An old people’s home was evacuated and its 42 residents moved to a nearby resort, authorities said. At least three smaller fires were burning near Athens late on Saturday afternoon. One, in the district of Pallini, just east of the capital, started in dry grass and was threatening an ice cream factory. Vans outside the factory went up in flames. Two other fires broke out in the north-west and south-east corners of the southern Greek Peloponnese peninsula, requiring dozens of fire vehicles to rush to the scenes. The blazes were being fought one day before Greeks vote in a national election that could determine whether their indebted nation stays in the euro or leaves in chaos. The prevailing weather in Greece has been hot and dry recently and although temperatures have decreased somewhat, winds have picked up, leading authorities to issue warnings just hours before the fire broke out.

Landslide in Chile on Monday, 18 June, 2012 at 03:47 (03:47 AM) UTC.

Description
Nearly 30 people were cut off early Sunday by a mudslide caused by the torrential rains in central and southern Chile, police said. The mudslide occurred in Farellones, located a few kilometers (miles) from Santiago, the Carabineros militarized police force said. Snow and heavy rain caused the emergency situation at kilometer 4 in Farellones on the road to a ski resort, police said, adding that all the residents who were cut off are in good condition. Avalanches, meanwhile, destroyed an unoccupied vehicle in San Jose de Maipo, a city outside Santiago in the lower part of the Andes. Heavy snow has kept the Los Libertadores border crossing, which links the Chilean city of Los Andes to the Argentine city of Mendoza, closed, police said. Several ports remain closed as a precaution due to bad weather, but the weather service said the rain should ease Sunday night. The rains caused power outages and flooding in the Santiago metropolitan area, which is home to 6.4 million people, the national emergency management office said.

Epidemic Hazard in India on Monday, 18 June, 2012 at 03:16 (03:16 AM) UTC.

Description
Fifteen cases of Scrub Typhus infection, a communicable disease commonly found in southeast Asia and Japan, have been reported from various parts of the district. First reported from Malabar region in the state in 2006, the medical officials say that it is very difficult to know its symptoms mainly because in the initial stage it appears like a common fever. The disease which spreads through mite bite can be diagnosed only through blood test. “Scrub Typhus has been reported in Kozhikode, Kannur, Malappuram, Wayanad and Palakkad,” said M K Appunny, additional district medical officer. “If detected at an early stage then it can be cured by administering drug Doxycycline, used to treat Leptospirosis. But if the patient approaches doctor at a late stage then the chances of organ failure and death are high,” he said. The health department had organized a regional-level workshop for doctors from the six districts of Malabar at the Kozhikode Medical College Hospital recently. The workshop imparted awareness classes for the medical fraternity including district medical officers and health staff to ensure early diagnosis of diseases. The Kozhikode wing of the Indian Medical Association, which started its campaign ‘no more fever deaths’, has started conducting awareness classes about the disease with the help of residential associations in the district. Elaborating the symptoms, K T Mohanan, public health programme officer, said the disease used to be found only in people living in the forest areas. Sore skin and bite mark on body are the major signs to identify the disease. Symptoms include acute fever, cold and joint pain.
Biohazard name: Scrub Typhus
Biohazard level: 3/4 Hight
Biohazard desc.: Bacteria and viruses that can cause severe to fatal disease in humans, but for which vaccines or other treatments exist, such as anthrax, West Nile virus, Venezuelan equine encephalitis, SARS virus, variola virus (smallpox), tuberculosis, typhus, Rift Valley fever, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, yellow fever, and malaria. Among parasites Plasmodium falciparum, which causes Malaria, and Trypanosoma cruzi, which causes trypanosomiasis, also come under this level.

Biological Hazard in USA on Monday, 18 June, 2012 at 03:52 (03:52 AM) UTC.

Description
The Idaho State Department of Agriculture says two Idaho goats have tested positive for Q fever. Q fever is a contagious bacteria that affects, sheep, goats and cattle, and it can be spread to humans. This is not the first case in the state, but this is the first outbreak on record in Idaho. The ISDA is trying to keep it from spreading to more animals, or humans. “The Department of Agriculture received confirmation that two goats in the state had tested positive for Coxiela burnetii,” said Doctor Scott Leibsle of the Idaho State Department of Agriculture. Coxiela burnetii is the organism that causes Q fever. “When we got the confirmation of the positive, we notified the owner of the goats and we immediately put the goats under quarantine,” said Leibsle. They caught the disease in a state screening. “You often don’t know your animal is sick until they abort their pregnancy, and typically, livestock don’t show any symptoms other than losing their pregnancy.” That’s also the time when it’s easiest to get and spread the bacteria. “The greatest risk for humans contracting the disease is the producers and people that handle livestock on a daily basis,” Leibsle said.

Details

 

 

Biological Hazard in Guam on Sunday, 17 June, 2012 at 16:32 (04:32 PM) UTC.

Description
The southern part of Tumon Bay was closed off to the public after reports of wasp jellyfish making their way into the area. Department of Parks and Recreation Director Pete Calvo said they shut down the beach areas between Hilton Resort and Spa, Gov. Joseph Flores Memorial Beach Park and the Pacific Islands Club. The beach areas from PIC up north toward the Westin hotel are not affected. “We had five incidents of encounters. A couple of tourists who were injured had some vinegar applied to their stings. It was not serious. But we don’t want anyone who may be allergic to this type of sting to be exposed,” he said. The five cases were confirmed to have occurred at Gov. Joseph Flores Memorial Beach Park. The creatures are believed to have entered when it was high tide, Calvo said. Lifeguards continue to monitor the beach and Calvo said they would conduct an assessment to determine if they could open the affected beach area. “If we find that the jellyfish have not moved on, then we’ll close the areas again. But we’ll play it by ear,” he said. Wasp jellyfish, also referred to as box jellyfish, carry venom known to cause serious pain to people. Once the tentacles come in contact with human skin, they tend to stick. Removing them while the creature is alive is not recommended, due to the potential for a release of more toxins. If the sting is not treated right away, it can leave a scar.

Details

 

 

 

Biological Hazard in USA on Sunday, 17 June, 2012 at 05:11 (05:11 AM) UTC.

 

Description
Recently a sampling crew found blue-green algae blooming in Sodus Bay. “I don’t think anybody wanted to go in the water anyway because it was like pea soup,” boater Bruce Arrabito said. Boaters like Arrabito remember summers like 2010. That’s when slimy algae covered the bay, some of it was toxic to people and animals. It’s a sight boater, Joyce Ebmeyer worries she’ll see again. “This is just the beginning stages, Ebmeyer said. “It was blue everywhere; it will probably get the same way.” Ebmeyer claims the algae from 2010 made her friend sick. “My friend had a reaction to it when she was here two years ago and she was wheezing and could hardly breath and a friend of hers had an asthma attack,” Ebmeyer said. Some marinas have strategically placed bubblers near the docks where blue algae form. Algae need hot, dry conditions, and calm water. The idea is to use these bubblers to prevent algae from forming. But that can’t rid the water of what’s already there. To do that, Ed Leroux of the group, Save Our Sodus says they’re looking at using Hydrogen Peroxide. “It’s worked exceptionally well in the Netherlands,” Leroux said. “It stops the algae bloom dead in its tracks.” That may be able to flush out this nuisance for good. Leroux says his organization has received several grants to take on projects to control and rid of the algae. It’s not known if the blooms in the bay are toxic. The results from samples taken Friday will be available sometime Monday.

Japanese PM fires up damaging reactor row

TOKYO: The approval by the Prime Minister, Yoshihiko Noda, for reactors to be restarted, ending Japan’s month-long freeze on nuclear power, has met with a mixed response, signalling damage to his political support.

Two reactors at Kansai Electric Power’s Ohi nuclear plant can be operated safely, Mr Noda said on Saturday after meeting three cabinet ministers who share approval authority.

The utility, which serves the $1 trillion economy of Japan’s second-biggest urban region, said it would immediately begin work to start one reactor.

Japan is reopening nuclear plants that provided about 30 per cent of its energy before being shut after the March 2011 meltdowns at Tokyo Electric Power’s Fukushima station.

The decision followed a day after a deal was made with opposition parties to abandon some campaign pledges in return for agreement to double the nation’s consumption tax. Majorities in public opinion polls oppose both the restarts and the tax increase.

Local governments in areas where other nuclear power plants are located voiced support for the government’s decision and hope that reactors at their nuclear plants would also be reactivated.

”The government should restart the reactors as quickly as possible on its own responsibility,” a local official said.

But other local government heads reiterated their demands that the government make more efforts to secure the safety of nuclear plants.

More than 70 per cent of respondents to a Mainichi newspaper poll published on June 4 objected to a speedy restart of the reactors in Ohi. In a separate poll released June 5 by the Pew Research Centre, 70 per cent of Japanese said the country should reduce its reliance on nuclear energy and 52 per cent feared they or their families may have been exposed to radiation.
