FAO launches disease crisis center

first_img The campaign covers all of the country’s 40,000 elementary and secondary schools. The curriculum will help ensure that children understand what they can do to help prevent the spread of avian flu, such as washing their hands frequently and reporting sick or dead poultry. Oct 12, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – To speed emergency responses to avian influenza and other animal and plant diseases, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) inaugurated a new crisis management center (CMC) at its Rome headquarters today. If a suspected outbreak is reported, the crisis management center can dispatch experts anywhere in the world in less than 48 hours, the FAO said. The center can react quickly to emergencies involving plant pests or food safety, as well as diseases, officials said. The center, founded with the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), is supported by advanced communication technology and will operate around the clock, 7 days a week, the FAO said in a press release. The center is staffed by up to 15 specialists and veterinarians who will continuously update and monitor disease information. Oct 12 FAO press releasehttp://www.fao.org/newsroom/en/news/2006/1000421/index.html Thailand has the third highest number of human H5N1 cases (25), and the disease has killed 17 people, including 11 children younger than 18. The United States donated $5.1 million and three veterinarians to the CMC; other donors include Germany, France, Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, Saudi Arabian, China, Greece, and Jordan.

Reaction must be immediate in combating a disease, which can move across borders and continents terrifyingly fast.” Four million posters and pamphlets containing prevention and awareness messages will be distributed; elementary schools will receive 300,000 bars of soap. The campaign was produced by UNICEF and funded by Japan. Oct 11 UN press releasehttp://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=20215&Cr=bird&Cr1=flu Meanwhile, Thailand and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) launched a school-based campaign this week to protect children and their families from the spread of avian flu, according to a United Nations announcement yesterday. The CMC is headed by Dr Karin Schwabenbauer, Germany’s former chief veterinary officer. Dr Gary L. Brickler, from the US Department of Agriculture, is deputy director. Animal health emergency response will be handled by the FAO’s chief veterinary officer, Dr Joseph Domenech, and the FAO’s Emergency and Rehabilitation Division will handle the CMC’s operational support. “The CMC represents a significant leap forward in FAO’s ability to help member nations prevent and cope with disease outbreaks,” said Dr Jacques Diouf, director-general of the FAO, in the press release.

However, Foot Mercato do say that the French giants are showing signs that their interest is “concrete”. If Ighalo was to move to PSG at some point, it would be the second time in quick succession that he sealed a surprise transfer. Back in June, he admitted that even he could not have foreseen his dream move to Old Trafford. “I thought it was a joke,” he told Sky Sports News. “I was playing in Shanghai. That was against me. Would a club as a big as United be looking in China for a striker? That was against me. read also:Odion Ighalo opens up on Manchester United future “My age. That was against me. There was a pandemic in China. That was against me. I said no, this is a joke. “Later, when it got serious, I thought only when I fly to Manchester will I believe it.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Nigeria’s Odion Ighalo may soon shift his sojourn to France as Paris Saint-Germain registered their interest in Manchester United loanee striker. According to Foot Mercato, PSG have outlined Ighalo as a surprise potential target. The French champions have released Edinson Cavani, leaving them with just Mauro Icardi and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting as out-and-out central striking options. Hence, the report claims that PSG have a “very real” interest in Ighalo. The Ligue 1 giants admire the Nigerian for his experience, quality, and affordability. Ighalo returned to the Premier League from China when joining United on loan in January. The former Watford striker has impressed in patches, scoring five goals in cup competitions. His form prompted United to extend his loan until January 2021. However, he has still not started a Premier League game for them. Ighalo’s contract with parent club Shanghai Shenhua expires in December 2021. Therefore, his price tag will start to diminish over time. That opportunity has led to PSG making their first contacts with his agents. While he is not the only target on their radar, they have opened talks with his entourage.Advertisementlast_img read more
