PAHO Director says Timing and Local Planning are Critical to Relax Restrictions for COVID-19

first_img Sharing is caring! Share Share Washington, D.C., June 30, 2020 (PAHO)— The Director of the Pan American Health Organization, Dr. Carissa F. Etienne, said countries planning to relax public health measures must take a phased approach based on local conditions and be prepared to impose preventive measures again if the epidemiological situation changes.“The key is to think both nationally and locally and base decisions on the latest data. The more granular our understanding of where the virus strikes, the more targeted our response will be,” she told a media briefing today.“As we are seeing, countries, states and cities that do not embrace preventive measures or relax restrictions too soon can be flooded with new cases,” Etienne said.“Timing is critical. At national or at local level, we must open gradually, taking a phased approach that relies on robust surveillance, data, and expanded testing and contact tracing capacity.”  If the situation changes and infections rise, localities and countries must adjust course quickly, she added.Noting that 5.1 million cases and more than 247,000 deaths due to COVID-19 have been reported in the Americas through June 29, she said, “To truly understand the impact of the virus, and to plan more effectively for what comes next, it’s important to look beyond regional and national data and focus on the local level.”“We often hear about the number of cases in large countries like Brazil, Mexico or the United States without the appreciation of their considerable societal and geographic diversity. In fact, multiple epidemiological curves coexist both within our region and within each country, and public health responses must be tailored to these specific situations,” Etienne said.The PAHO director said reopening requires public health measures to track new cases and build sufficient capacity to detect and control new outbreaks. “Transmission in your area should be going down in a sustainable way, deaths should be decreasing, and hospital bed occupancy rates should be low” before restrictions are relaxed, Etienne added.She listed public health measures local and national governments should take including  timely tests, isolation of cases to reduce transmission, contact tracing to find infected persons and isolate them, access to Personal Protective Equipment and training for health workers, and if necessary, travel measures to limit new infections such as screening, case finding, quarantines and other measures.“We need tests, but we also need test results to be reported quickly to paint an accurate picture,” Etienne said. “Anyone with symptoms should have the guidance and support needed to reduce the chance of transmitting to others,” she added.Contact tracing, when anchored to a strong primary health care system, “can help reduce the risk of transmission among vulnerable communities,” Etienne said, and the health system needs enough hospital beds and intensive care units to provide care for severe cases.PAHO is working closely with countries and, “in many cases, local governments to analyze these trends to help guide their decision making, she said. “PAHO has supported countries in every aspect of the response, providing guidance, training, and supplies. Over the past two months we have donated almost 5 million PCR tests to the region and procured more than 10 million tests on behalf of our countries. We made 54 shipments of PPEs to 26 countries.” Share Tweet LifestyleLocalNewsRegional PAHO Director says Timing and Local Planning are Critical to Relax Restrictions for COVID-19 by: – July 1, 2020 34 Views   no discussions                                 PAHO Director, Dr. Carissa F.

Clawson for Congress

first_imgRecently I learned that Curt Clawson is running for a congressional seat in Florida vacated by a congressman who was forced to resign.  Curt has always had a flare for doing things in a dramatic way.  His entry into this race is no exception as witnessed by his Super Bowl add to announce his candidacy.  In the ad, he challenges President Obama to one-on-one basketball game.A lot of you will remember Curt as an All-State basketball player at Batesville High School in the 70’s.  In Curt’s senior year he led the state in scoring and played in the Indiana All-Star basketball series.  In fact, he was in Batesville recently to film certain aspects of his career at Batesville as well as Purdue where he played under Coach Gene Keady.  Gene is helping Curt in his campaign.  Since college, Curt has spent a lot of time operating manufacturing plants that supplied the auto industry with different types of auto parts.  He has been very successful in this career.Curt is now in semi-retirement helping care for his aging parents who live in the Naples, Florida, area.  Leave it to Curt to want to get involved locally.  We wish Curt the best of luck in this new endeavor.last_img read more

Media Event or Sport?

first_imgLast week was the MLB All-Star Game.  It supposedly was to start around 8 p.m.  At 11 p.m. the game was only in the 6th inning.  This meant that they had played 3 hours to complete a little over one half of a ball game.I feel that All-Star Events in professional sports have little or nothing to do with displaying the talents of the players involved.  They are just another way for the management of that sport to make more money.  I am sure that ball players today have written in their contract that they get extra money for All-Star appearances, but this is a mere pittance compared to what everyone else is making from the spectacle that is being presented on TV.We are all familiar with the half-time spectacular at the Super Bowl and baseball’s version called the Home Run Derby.  It was reported that the city of Minneapolis made nearly 8 million dollars on the latest All-Star baseball game.  It is totally about how much money one of these events can raise–not about the talent of the people involved.last_img read more
