President,S.” Dr Anne Schuchat director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases told reporters on May 2 “We have been preparing for this” CDC officials will contact and track individuals who might have been close to the patient including health workers who treated him and fellow travelers on his international flights and his bus ride to Munster just in case any developed MERS symptoms That’s not likely So far MERS hasn’t shown much ability to spread easily from person to person so the threat to the larger US public is probably very small But if that Indiana case remains isolated and MERS itself never becomes the global health threat that SARS was it only means we were lucky As Schuchat put it exotic emerging diseases are now “just a plane’s ride away” In the past before international air travel became common emerging pathogens could begin infecting people but remain geographically isolated for decades Scientists now think that HIV was active among people in Central Africa for decades before it really began spreading globally in the 1970s again thanks largely to international air travel Today there’s almost no spot on the planet from the rainforests of Cameroon to the hinterland of China so remote that someone couldn’t make it to a heavily populated city like New York or Hong Kong in less than 24 hours potentially carrying a new infectious disease with them The surest way to prevent the spread of new infectious disease would be to shut down international travel and trade which is obviously not going to happen The occasional pandemic might simply be one of the prices we pay for a globalized world But we can do much more to try to detect and snuff out new pathogens before they endanger the health of the planet Because most new diseases emerge in animals before jumping to human beings (the virus that causes MERS seems to infect humans mostly via camel though bats may be the original source) we need to police the porous boundary between animal health and human health That work is being done by groups like Global Viral (whose founder I profiled in November 2011) is creating an early warning system capable of forecasting and containing new pathogens before they fuel pandemics But as the stubborn spread of MERS shows that’s easier said than done especially if diseases emerge in countries that have less than open political systems Because as it turns out the driving factor behind the spread of new diseases isn’t just globalization It’s also political denial SARS was able to spread beyond China’s borders in part because the Chinese government initially covered up the outbreaks at one point even driving SARS patients around Beijing in ambulances to hide them from an international health team Meanwhile the autocratic Saudi government has made life difficult for researchers studying MERS Much the same thing happened when the avian flu virus H5N1 began spreading in Southeast Asia in 2004 In every case a rapid and public response might have contained those viruses before they threatened the rest of the world Eleven years later Hong Kong’s Metropole Hotel is now called the Metropark and Liu Jianlun’s infamous room 911 doesn’t exist any more After SARS hotel management changed the number to 913 in an attempt to scrub out the past Denial is always so tempting But in an interconnected world where the travel plans of a single person can seed deadly outbreaks a continent away it’s no longer an option Contact us at [email protected]” Martin Schulz,The president has told associates that he doesn’t believe that account – particularly the claim that Rosenstein sought to gather support for invoking the 25th Amendment of the Constitution to remove Trump from office. would take over supervision of the Russia probe.Some companies are voluntarily restricting oil production in order to meet gas capture targets, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Scott Patrick, which researchers at University of Huddersfield, a white 21-year-old named Dylann Roof, Bush in 2002 to show why.
