Read in Turkish/ TürkçeReporters Without Borders condemns police violence against many journalists during demonstrations throughout Turkey on 31 May to mark the first anniversary of the start of the “Occupy Gezi” protest movement.After Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned in advance he would permit no demonstration in Istanbul’s Taksim Square, the epicentre of the protests a year ago, the media were denied access to the square from the start of the afternoon. At least 25,000 policemen and 50 water cannon trucks were deployed in Istanbul alone.In the course of using teargas and rubber bullets to disperse the protesters, the police also targeted journalists. At least ten journalists were attacked and the members of a CNN International crew were detained.“A year after Gezi, the security forces are still using unjustifiable violence against journalists covering demonstrations,” said Johann Bihr, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk.“The impunity enjoyed by those responsible for last year’s abuses just encourages the police to continue. It is high time the authorities reined in such practices by abandoning their inflammatory rhetoric and by ensuring that those guilty of violence are punished.”There were at last seven cases of violence against journalists in Istanbul on 31 May. Berna Sahin, Gökhan Biçici of the Dokuz8Haber news website , Zeynep Kuray of the pro-Kurdish news agency ANF and a Halk TV cameraman were attacked by police while covering the protests.Elif Akgül, a woman reporter for the Bianet news website, was injured by a rubber bullet. Pepper spray was sprayed in the face of Erdal Imrek, a reporter for the left-wing daily Günlük Evrensel, at close range. His colleague, Duygu Ayber, was attacked by police after showing his press card. Police officers insulted Ekin Karaca of Bianet and Sinem Ugurlu of Günlük Evrensel.In Ankara, a teargas canister struck freelancer Piero Castellano in the chest, causing injuries that needed emergency treatment but were not life-threatening. Four other journalists were beaten with batons while covering clashes between protesters and police.A CNN International crew was detained on the orders of a senior Istanbul police officer. Correspondent Ivan Watson was reporting live from Taksim Square when he was asked to show the press card he had received from the prime minister’s office. As he did not have his passport with him, the police claimed that the press card could have been forged, detaining Watson and his crew for half an hour, until the passport was produced. At one point, a policeman kicked Watson. TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Hundreds of protesters were arrested and many were injured by the police violence in Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, Adana and other major cities on 31 May.“Occupy Gezi” was a major anti-government protest movement that began when the authorities used violence to break up a protest against an urban development project in Istanbul. It sparked a wave of demonstrations that the police dispersed with repeated use of violence during the summer of 2013.At least 153 journalists were physically attacked and 39 others were detained from May to September 2013. Many people have already been put on trial for alleged rioting but an investigation into all the police violence is still under way. At the same time, the government continues to accuse independent and foreign media of plotting against it and siding with “terrorist” groups.Turkey is ranked 154th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.——————Gezi’den bir yıl sonra: Polis Şiddetine Tam CezasızlıkUluslararası Sınır Tanımayan Gazeteciler (RSF), Gezi eylemlerinin yıldönümü olan 31 Mayıs’ta görev yapan Türkiyeli ve uluslararası medya çalışanlarına yönelik polisin şiddetini bir yazılı açıklamayla protesto etti.

Chikungunya fever gains foothold in Europe

first_img In recent years, epidemics have occurred in India and on various Indian Ocean islands, including Comorros, Mauritius, Reunion, and Seychelles. A major epidemic struck Reunion, a French territory, between March 2005 and June 2006, sickening an estimated 266,000 people, about 35% of the population, according to Eurosurveillance. Several hundred cases occurred in France during the Reunion epidemic, but nearly all were linked to the island epidemic, the report says. Eurosurveillance reporthttp://www.eurosurveillance.org/ViewArticle.aspx?ArticleId=3260 CDC information on chikungunyahttp://www.cdc.gov/chikungunya/ The Eurosurveillance report does not say whether the index case-patient reported mosquito bites, but an online news report by the journal Nature says authorities think the virus “spread among the dense population of tiger mosquitoes” after the man’s illness. There is a possibility that the same thing could happen in the United States, since the two mosquito species that can spread the virus are found in the Southeast, according to an official with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). But he said the likelihood of that is “relatively low.” Flahault suggested that the very dense mosquito population in and around Ravenna had spurred the outbreak, according to the story. He said the Italian climate has grown warmer and more humid, favoring the proliferation of mosquitoes. Chikungunya usually causes fever, headache, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, muscle and joint pain, and a rash, according to the CDC. The disease is not life-threatening. Symptoms typically last a few days to 2 weeks, but fatigue or joint pain sometimes lingers for weeks to months, the CDC says. “The current outbreak of chikungunya fever in northeastern Italy . . . marks the first recorded occasion that this virus has been transmitted by mosquitoes within Europe,” the report states. The report says A albopictus is found in several other European countries, including Albania, France, Belgium, Montenegro, Switzerland, Greece, Spain, Croatia, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Bosnia, Herzegovina, and possibly more, suggesting a potential for further spread of the disease. Could disease spread to the US?The United States has recorded some chikungunya cases among returning travelers, but no transmission of the disease, according to Dr. Ned Hayes, a medical epidemiologist with the CDC’s Division of Vector-Borne Infectious Diseases in Fort Collins, Colo. But he said the two mosquitoes that can spread chikungunya—A albopictus and Aedes aegypti—are found in the southeastern United States. “For chikungunya to be transmitted in the US, you need to have a viremic person or mosquito introduction in an area where both susceptible persons and the predominant mosquito vector are present,” Hayes said. “Both those conditions exist in the US, so I think the importation of chikungunya is a concern.” Epidemics described as cyclicalThe World Health Organization (WHO) reports that major chikungunya epidemics “appear and disappear cyclically,” with quiet periods usually lasting 7 to 8 years but sometimes as long as 20 years. Chikungunya clinically resembles dengue fever, which is widespread in the tropics, according to the WHO. The chikungunya virus was first identified in 1953 during an epidemic in Tanzania, according to the CDC. Europe has had scattered cases of chikungunya before, mainly in travelers from parts of Africa and Asia where the disease is established. But the outbreak this summer in Italy’s Ravenna province was spread by mosquitoes, according to a report published Sep 6 by Eurosurveillance Weekly. The name “chikungunya” is Swahili for “that which bends up,” a reference to the stooped posture associated with joint pain. There is no vaccine or specific antiviral treatment for the illness, which is caused by a virus of the genus Alphavirus. But the risk of indigenous transmission is “probably relatively low in the continental United States,” mainly because of socioeconomic and lifestyle differences that tend to limit the spread of mosquito-borne viruses like chikungunya, dengue, and yellow fever, Hayes said. For example, air conditioning and window screens help protect people from heavy exposure to mosquitoes, he explained. Hayes said the key message is that people should be aware of mosquito-borne illness risks, especially when traveling, and take steps to protect themselves from bites. Travelers who have a fever on returning to the United States should seek medical attention and inform health authorities of any infection.center_img Eurosurveillance says the disease was mild and self-limiting in most patients, but joint pain was intense and often persisted after the fever abated. One patient, an 83-year-old man with severe underlying health problems, died. Antoine Flahault, who coordinates French research on chikungunya, called the Italian outbreak a “world first” outside the tropics, according to a Sep 7 BBC News report. Writing in the journal Quotidien du Medecin, he said the virus’s movement into Europe was “worrying without being alarming.” Italy reports 166 casesIn the Italian outbreak, officials recorded 166 cases, most of them in two neighboring villages, according to Eurosurveillance. The outbreak is believed to have started after a man from India fell ill while visiting one of the villages in late June. The epidemic peaked in the third week of August. “It’s possible, if the virus should become endemic in, say, the southeastern US, that it could provide a locus for spread to other parts of the country, but I wouldn’t think it would spread like West Nile virus,” he said. Birds have helped spread West Nile across the continent since the disease emerged in New York City in 1999. Sep 10, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – A recent outbreak of the debilitating tropical disease known as chikungunya fever in northern Italy apparently marks the mosquito-borne infection’s first foothold in Europe, according to European health authorities. Chikungunya does not commonly spread from person to person, Hayes said. However, it can spread from a pregnant woman to her fetus, and it could probably be spread via blood donated by an infected person, he said. But infected people have the virus in their blood for only a short time. “We don’t even know why West Nile disease [another mosquito-borne viral illness] became endemic in North America but not in Europe, even though the virus and the vector are present on both continents,” Evelyn Depoortere, an epidemiologist at the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control in Stockholm, told Nature. However, areas where dengue transmission already occurs or is possible may be more vulnerable to chikungunya, Hayes said. Such areas include parts of Florida and Texas, plus Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. But scientists quoted in the Nature story said they don’t know enough to predict whether the disease will spread to other European countries that have A albopictus. WHO Southeast Asia information sheet on chikungunyahttp://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs327/en/ See also: If chikungunya did gain a toehold in the United States, it would be unlikely to spread across the continent, in Hayes’s opinion. Although the Italian outbreak was associated with A albopictus, the primary vector for chikungunya is A aegypti, the yellow fever mosquito, the CDC says. It was not until the end of August that investigators zeroed in on the diagnosis of chikungunya, using serologic testing and polymerase chain reaction (PCR), the Eurosurveillance report says. In addition, the virus was detected in local Aedes albopictus mosquitoes, also known as tiger mosquitoes, by PCR.
