Monitoring for WNV began May 1, 2017; monitoring for Zika virus will begin on June 1.“I am pleased that we are once again able to partner with Pennsylvania counties to conduct this surveillance and control of mosquitoes, which can carry diseases that pose a serious risk to human health,” said Governor Wolf.DEP annually partners with counties to cover the costs associated with surveying and controlling mosquitoes that can carry WNV, and for 2017, Zika virus. DEP and county programs use a combination of education, surveillance, source reduction, and environmentally responsible insecticides to reduce the risk of WNV and Zika virus.“DEP is committed to preventing the spread of mosquito borne disease in Pennsylvania,” said Acting DEP Secretary Patrick McDonnell. “County governments use this grant funding to identify and control mosquitoes associated with West Nile and Zika virus using the safest, most effective integrated pest management practices available.”The grants, funded by the General Fund, were developed in consultation with county officials and are largely based on the historic occurrence of mosquito species that can carry WNV and/or Zika virus.  The most common species of mosquito that carries Zika virus, Aedes aegypti, has not been found in Pennsylvania since 2002, however another species that can carry the virus, Aedes albopictus, is prevalent in southern Pennsylvania counties, especially in the southeast. Mosquitoes that can carry WNV are found in all 67 counties.In 2016 there were 16 confirmed human cases of WNV in Pennsylvania. There were no cases of Zika virus that were the result of local transmission; Zika cases in 2016 were all travel related.Simple, commonsense preventative measures are critical in reducing mosquito populations. DEP encourages Pennsylvanians to remove standing water from their property and use insect repellents outdoors to prepare for mosquito season and prevent infection.Birds can be carriers of WNV, and DEP tests dead birds for WNV to determine the virus’ presence in the environment. To report a dead bird, file a mosquito complaint, or for more information about WNV, visit www.westnile.state.pa.us or call 717-346-8243. Zika virus is not carried by birds.

Russia given 3 weeks by WADA to explain alleged doping data tampering

first_imgLast Updated: 23rd September, 2019 19:56 IST Russia Given 3 Weeks By WADA To Explain Alleged Doping Data Tampering The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is giving Russia three weeks to explain possible signs of tampering with critical data from its doping laboratory. Written By LIVE TV The World Anti-Doping Agency is giving Russia three weeks to explain possible signs of tampering with data from its doping laboratory that was critical to prosecuting cases against athletes alleged to have cheated at the 2014 Olympics and other major events. WADA heard about the possible tampering at its executive committee meeting Monday in Tokyo. Turning over the data was a key requirement for the reinstatement of Russia’s anti-doping agency, and WADA has formally opened a compliance procedure that could lead to a new ban if the data was manipulated.Read: Russian Anti-doping Chief Attacks His Own Athletics FederationRussian technical specialists will have access to the reviewRussia’s sports minister Pavel Kolobkov said his office had been told about the discrepancies between the data turned over by a whistleblower and data from the lab, which was being used to corroborate the whistleblower information. He indicated that Russian technical specialists will have access to the review. “What, exactly, these inconsistencies are and what they are related to, that will be cleared up by experts in the field of digital technology from both sides, who are already cooperating,” Kolobkov said. “From our side, we will continue to offer all possible assistance.”Read: Prithvi Shaw Issues Statement After BCCI’s Doping Ban, Says The News Has Shaken HimWADA acting against doping casesThe data was handed over to WADA in January after Russia breached an earlier deadline of Dec. 31, 2018. It has been used to support suspensions against 12 Russian weightlifters, including 10 former world or European championship medalists, and cases in the winter sport of biathlon. WADA said it would continue to pursue cases while this latest review is ongoing. WADA has been criticized for reinstating RUSADA under terms less stringent than the original roadmap. But director-general Olivier Niggli told The Associated Press he stood by the decision. “I believe it was actually a very important decision and absolutely the right decision,” Niggli said. “I’m convinced that we would not have the data if we had not taken that decision, so we would not even be talking about it today. There would still be a cloud of suspicion and nothing would have gone forward.” Niggli conceded the tampering could force WADA to drop some of the cases, “but there will be a good number of cases which can still move forward.”Read: Deepak Punia Reaches World Championship Final; Books Olympics BerthRussians athletes to compete as neutral participantsWADA would not set a firm timetable on a decision. The case is heating up a few days before the start of the track world championships in Doha, where 30 Russians will compete as neutral athletes while Russia’s track federation remains under suspension by the sport’s governing body. The Russian track federation said Monday it knows of 14 open investigations against its athletes, including the former Olympic gold medalists Anna Chicherova and Elena Lashmanova. The federation said it found out during failed attempts to secure neutral status, which would have allowed them to compete at the world championships. Both Chicherova and Lashmanova have already served doping bans for other offences and would likely have been refused the status regardless.Read: Vinesh Phogat Wins Bronze In WWC, Qualifies For Tokyo 2020 Olympics 11 months ago US, Russia to hold next counter-terrorism bilateral talks in 2020 COMMENT Associated Press Television News WATCH US LIVE 11 months ago Russia: Gas Explosion at lab holding Ebola and Smallpox samplescenter_img 11 months ago Russia & Uganda to work together in ‘creation of nuclear energy infra’ 11 months ago Ex-Tsentr’19: Russia conducts joint military exercise with Indian Army First Published: 23rd September, 2019 19:56 IST SUBSCRIBE TO US WE RECOMMEND FOLLOW US 11 months ago US-Russia nuclear war would kill 34 mn and injure 57 mn people: Studylast_img read more
