first_imgHealth officials confirm first flu death of this year’s flu season August 21, 2019 Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter KUSI Newsroom, Posted: August 21, 2019 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Health officials today confirmed the first influenza- related death of the 2019/2020 flu season in San Diego County.The county’s Health and Human Services Agency reported that a 74-year-old Chula Vista man died Aug. 15 due to complications from Influenza B. The man, whose name was withheld, also had additional medical issues, according to county health officials.The county tracks flu activity year-round during each flu season, which corresponds with the county’s fiscal year from July 1 to June 30. Health officials didn’t confirm the first flu death in each of the last two flu seasons until October.“Influenza deaths can occur at any time since influenza circulates throughout the year,” said Dr. Dean Sidelinger, the county’s interim deputy public health officer. “The elderly, pregnant women and those with underlyingmedical conditions are at higher risk of developing complications from influenza.”Since July 1, health officials have confirmed 106 flu cases throughout the county. At this time in the last two flu seasons, officials had confirmed just 26 cases in 2018 and 114 in 2017. The 2017/2018 flu season resulted in 342 flu-related deaths, the most since the county began tracking flu data nearly 20 years ago.The season’s flu vaccine will not be widely available around the county until September, according to local officials. Certain local pharmacies and health clinics may have the vaccine before then, however. Residents can check if the vaccine is available near them by searching their ZIP code at cdc.gov/flu/freeresources/flu-finder-widget.html.County health officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention strongly advise the annual flu vaccination for everyone 6 months and older, especially in demographics with a heightened risk of serious complications.Residents can take precaution against contracting the virus by frequently washing their hands, cleaning commonly touched surfaces and avoiding contact with sick people.“It’s important to practice good hand hygiene and stay home if you are sick to avoid infecting others,” Sidelinger said. “People should cover their mouth when causing and sneezing to prevent the spread of germs.” KUSI Newsroom last_img read more

Myanmar Cambodian Processors See Benefits of US Soybeans

first_imgDr. Zach Liu visits the Yang Li tofu plant in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.Northern Crops Institute (NCI) Food Scientist Dr. Zach Liu spent the past two weeks working with eight soymilk and tofu companies in Myanmar and Cambodia on the benefits of using U.S. food grade soybeans.Through a competitive bidding process, three U.S. exporters provided seven soybean varieties that were shipped in February through the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) funded Quality Samples Program. Interest in U.S. food grade soybeans is growing in both countries due to the poor quality and limited production of locally grown soybeans. Consumers are also looking for higher-quality food products for their families.The soybean samples were used for testing and to conduct full-scale production trials. Feedback will be shared with the three U.S. exporters on their respective soybean varieties.The North Dakota Soybean Council funded Liu’s trip, along with the container custom clearance and in-country distribution costs.last_img read more

County letter states coal worries

0 Comment

first_imgThe Clark County Board of Commissioners sent a letter on June 21 to the state Department of Ecology and to Cowlitz County outlining its worries about a proposed coal export terminal in Longview, saying they “cannot ignore the potentially significant, adverse impacts on our citizens.”On Monday, the Vancouver City Council agreed to draft a resolution also expressing concerns about the impacts coal trains traveling from Wyoming to a proposed export terminal in Longview may have. Numerous other regional cities have also drafted resolutions or sent letters of concern about the six proposed coal export terminals intended to serve as a conduit for coal from the Powder River Basin in Wyoming and Montana to China. In between the basin and the terminals, however, are hundreds of miles of train tracks, many of which run through Clark County. As many as 5,840 additional trains could flow through the county annually as a result, the letter said.While the commissioners wrote that they support job creation and a healthy economy, they requested that any environmental impact review — which is being co-led by the state Department of Ecology and Cowlitz County — “carefully consider the regional impacts of this proposal, including direct, indirect and cumulative effects in Clark County.”“We have concerns about how added rail traffic could harm the quality of life in Clark County, especially for those living and owning businesses near the rail lines,” the letter read. “Impacts could include: emergency response delays; increased traffic congestion; air and noise pollution due to idling trains; air pollution created by coal dust; blocked pedestrian and bicycle access to the waterfront; destabilizing steep slopes adjacent to the tracks; and changes to established quiet zones.”Extra planning will be needed to accommodate up to 16 trains, each a mile long, per day, the letter said. “As part of the analysis, the county thinks full consideration of alternatives and mitigation measures is in order,” the commissioners wrote.last_img read more

Fire rescue boats also took part in the training exercise, with a camera drone capturing it all from above.Officials said it’s a routine operation in order to plan for the unexpected. “These type of drills happen throughout the year but on different scales,” said Pozo. “This is a larger scale drill. We do smaller scale drills with the military [Civil Support Team] units at least two, three times a year.” PORT MIAMI, Fla. (WSVN) — Members of the armed forces teamed up with several South Florida police and firefighters, as well as private units, to stage a drill at PortMiami, Saturday.The event aimed to prepare crews for a real hazardous-materials emergency. In one exercise, crews wore specialized protective clothing while they rappelled from helicopters and secured a container. The training operation’s ultimate goal is to keep South Floridians safe. “In our communities’ time of need, we can provide that support in a timely fashion, so that we get that aid to the people who need it the most, the fastest,” said one participant.Officials spent the rest of the day performing several tactical tests centered around chemical detection and containment.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.
