Nearly 5,000 cholera cases, 74 deaths in Tanzania: WHO

first_imgWHO said it urgently needed $2m to ramp up efforts to control the outbreak, which included water trucks, chlorinating water and treatment for the sick.Tanzania is facing a major cholera outbreak, counting nearly 5,000 cases and dozens of deaths, the World Health Organization said Thursday, calling for urgent action to stop the disease from spreading to neighbouring countries.The UN health agency said that from August until October 21, more than 4,900 cases of cholera had been tallied in 12 regions of Tanzania and 74 people had died.The East African country’s largest city Dar es Salaam was most affected with about 3,500 cases, said Dominique Legros, head of WHO’s cholera unit.The fact that the disease had reached the city, which is home to more than four million people, sparked great concern, he said, adding that Dar es Salaam’s size and its numerous slum areas was “making things more complicated in terms of access to water and to build latrines.”Cholera, which is transmitted through contaminated drinking water and causes acute diarrhoea, most recently spread to an island in the Zanzibar archipelago, which in a matter of days acknowledged that 140 people had died, Legros said.Cholera is endemic in the region and Legros warned that the looming rainy season, with a “very bad” weather forecast, threatened to push the outbreak beyond Tanzania’s borders.“We have to really be ready for this and try to control the outbreak as soon as possible in Tanzania,” Legros said.WHO said it urgently needed $2m to ramp up efforts to control the outbreak, which included water trucks, chlorinating water and treatment for the sick.last_img read more

Hanley Ramirez a surprise starter for Dodgers in Game 6

first_imgUltimately, Ramirez didn’t factor into the final outcome. He was hitless in his first three at-bats as of press time.The standoffScott Van Slyke and Joe Kelly did something unusual before Game 6 of the National League Championship Series: They didn’t leave the field.When their teammates retreated to their respective dugouts after the national anthem, Van Slyke and Kelly remained at attention facing the flag — Kelly at the edge of the grass, Van Slyke in front of the top step of the dugout.Not until home-plate umpire Greg Gibson insisted did either player retreat. Even then, Kelly turned, took two steps toward the dugout, then went back to his station. Van Slyke saw Kelly flinch and turned around, getting high-fives from his teammates upon returning to the dugout. Mouse upMickey Mouse was a popular character at Busch Stadium. Fans of both teams were caught up in the spirit of Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright’s comment about Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez after Game 3 of the series. Some St. Louis fans wore Mickey Mouse ears and made Mickey Mouse signs. At least two Dodger fans in attendance wore Mickey Mouse T-shirts to the game.“I’ve had it for 15 years,” said one Dodger fan, Art Brown, who said he drove here from his home in Michigan. “I wear it randomly now and then. Figured today would be a good time to put it on.”Brown said the sentiment is playful.“I think Wainwright, he said it, he was kind of pissed about it, but I think everyone on the Dodgers is kind of embracing it,” he said. “I think everyone is kind of embracing it and having fun.”More funny businessGonzalez is such a huge Disney fan, he named his daughter, Brianna Belle, after the “Beauty and the Beast” heroine.Now that Gonzalez has helped give Disney all kinds of free advertising — including the Mickey Mouse ears gesture he flashed after hitting a home run in Game 5 — maybe it’s time for Disney to return the favor.A lifetime pass to Disneyland?“That would be awesome,” Gonzalez said, his eyes growing wide and big.He was dead serious.“My wife would love it,” Gonzalez said, smiling. “And my daughter, wow. She’d go nuts.”NotableFormer Cardinal Skip Schumaker was given a standing ovation when he was announced as a pinch hitter in the sixth inning with St. Louis leading 9-0. … St. Louis is 5-4 all-time in Game 6 of the NLCS, including 3-1 at home. … The Dodgers are 0-3 all-time in Game 6 of the NLCS.Staff writer Vincent Bonsignore contributed to this report. ST. LOUIS>> Hanley Ramirez was a surprise addition to the Dodgers’ lineup less than a half hour before Game 6.The shortstop, who suffered a hairline fracture of the eighth rib when he was hit by a pitch early in Game 1, didn’t take part in batting practice, play catch or take ground balls on the field prior to the game. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly wasn’t even cautiously optimistic about his shortstop’s chances of playing during his afternoon press briefing, saying that Ramirez’s condition had worsened.“If something would change before game time, we’d switch up,” Mattingly said at the time. “All of a sudden he’s trying to do things and he could get loose, he may be in there. But I don’t anticipate that.”Michael Young, Dee Gordon and Nick Punto — originally penciled in as the shortstop, batting eighth — were the only Dodgers who took ground balls at shortstop during batting practice. But Ramirez emerged from the Dodgers’ clubhouse shortly after the field emptied, playing catch in the outfield before the game began.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
