Nada de sexo después de los Juegos Olímpicos de Brasil … al menos por un tiempo.

Los viajeros que regresan de las zonas afectadas por el virus Zika deben abstenerse de tener relaciones sexuales o tener relaciones sexuales protegidas de ‘al menos ocho semanas “, y no sólo cuatro, ahora dice que la OMS

En sus nuevas recomendaciones para la prevención de la transmisión sexual del virus Zika, la Organización Mundial de la Salud añade que la gente debe esperar “seis meses si la pareja masculina tiene síntomas ‘.

… Se requiere .Este período de tiempo para asegurarse de que la infección ha desaparecido del cuerpo y que el virus no se puede transmitir (…) a la pareja “, explicó portavoz de la OMS Cristiano Lindmeier.

El virus Zika se asocia con América Latina a una explosión de hydrencephaly, una malformación grave e irreversible que se caracteriza por un tamaño anormalmente pequeño cráneo, así como las enfermedades neurológicas en los adultos, incluyendo el síndrome de Guillain-Barré.

El mosquito Aedes aegypti es considerado como el principal sourceo de transmisión del virus Zika, pero “cada vez más nuevas evidencias han demostrado que también se transmite por vía sexual.”

Nada de sexo após a Olimpíada Brasil … pelo menos por algum tempo.

Viajantes que retornam de áreas afetadas pelo vírus Zika devem se abster de relações sexuais ou tem sexo seguro para ‘pelo menos oito semanas’ e não apenas quatro, agora diz que o WHO

nas suas novas recomendações para a prevenção da transmissão sexual do vírus Zika, a Organização Mundial de saúde acrescenta que as pessoas devem esperar ‘seis meses se o parceiro masculino tem sintomas’.

“… aqui o período de tempo é necessário para garantir que a infecção desapareceu do corpo e que o vírus não pode ser transmitido (…) para o parceiro”, explicou que o porta-voz de Christian Lindmeier.

O vírus Zika é associado com a América Latina para uma explosão de hydrencephaly tem malformação grave e irreversível, caracterizada por um tamanho anormalmente pequeno crânio, bem como doenças neurológicas em adultos, incluindo a síndrome de Guillain-Barré.

O mosquito Aedes aegypti é considerado como sendo o principal sourceo da transmissão do vírus Zika, mas “cada vez mais novas evidências tem mostrado que é também sexualmente transmitida”.

No sex after Brazil Olympics… at least for awhile.

Travelers returning from areas affected by the Zika virus should refrain from sexual intercourse or have protected sex for ‘at least eight weeks’, and not just four, now says the WHO

In its new recommendations for the prevention of sexual transmission of Zika virus, the World Health Organization adds that people should wait ‘ six months if the male partner has symptoms ‘.

….this time period is required to ensure that the infection has disappeared from the body and that the virus cannot be transmitted (…) to the partner”, explained WHO spokesperson Christian Lindmeier.

The Zika virus is associated with Latin America to an explosion of hydrencephaly, a serious and irreversible malformation characterized by an abnormally small skull size, as well as neurological diseases in adults, including Guillain-Barré syndrome.

The Aedes aegypti mosquito is regarded as being the main sourceo of transmission of Zika virus, but “increasingly new evidence has shown that it is also sexually transmitted.”

Super Bug E. coli infection : (CRE)

Rare E. coli infection

Carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae (CRE) or carbapenemase-producing enterobacteriaceae (CPE) is a rare kind of E. coli infection that is resistant to antibiotics. In fact it is resistant to the carbapenem class of antibiotics which are known as the last resort for this type of infection. The spread of CRE has dramatically progressed in the world since it was first observed in 2001. Cases have been mostly found in the Mediterranean and southern European countries – Greece, Italy and quickly spread to Turkey and France.

A case has now been found in the United States. A 49 year old Pennsylvania woman presented the presence of this rare kind of E. coli infection, the first known case of its kind in the United States.
The CDC and the Pennsylvania Department of Health mobilized immediately to investigate the case and to trace contacts the patient may have had to see whether the bacteria had spread.

The woman is now safe. But the case is of concern. Superbugs also referred to as the Nightmare Bacteria by the CDC (Center for Disease Control). Superbugs prove to be be the ultimate challenge to the world’s medical community.

Hospitals are primary transmission sites for CRE-based infections. Researchers found environmental reservoirs of CRE bacteria in ICU sinks and drains. Despite multiple attempts to sterilize these sinks and drains, using detergents and steam, hospital staff were unsuccessful in getting rid of the CRE bacteria. Due to the bacteria’s resistance to cleaning measures, staff should take extreme precaution in maintaining sterile environments in hospitals not yet infected with the CRE-resistant bacteria.

What can you do to protect yourself from the E. coli Superbug?

  • Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with warm soapy water before and after handling food and using the bathroom.
  • Clean and sanitize utensils, cutting boards and counter tops often.
  • Wash all fruits and vegetables thoroughly before eating (even the ones you peel or those that are “pre-washed”).
  • Drink only pasteurized milk, juice and cider.
  • Use a meat thermometer to ensure your meat is cooked completely. Don’t judge if meat is cooked by how it looks, because hamburger can turn brown before it has reached a safe internal temperature of 71oC (160oF).
  • Place raw meats on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator so the juices cannot drip onto other foods.
  • Have separate cutting boards for raw meat, vegetables and cooked foods.
  • Keep cold foods cold and hot foods hot. Bacteria grows fastest in the “danger zone”, which is between 4°C and 60°C (40°F to 140°F).

What are the symptoms of E. Coli infection?

Symptoms of intestinal infection include diarrhea, abdominal pain, and fever. More severe cases can lead to bloody diarrhea, dehydration, or even kidney failure. People with weakened immune systems, pregnant women, young children, and older adults are at increased risk for developing these complications.

The Ultimate Concern

With the irresponsible overuse of antibiotics made by the medical community in the past years, we now face Superbugs that cannot be eliminated. Should a Superbug begin to spread out of control we may come face to face with the Ultimate Nightmare Scenario.
