Why do some survive Ebola? Sierra Leone study offers clues

CHICAGO (Reuters) - An analysis of the first Ebola cases in Sierra Leone helps draw a clearer picture of why some people survive the disease, while others do not, including their age and the pace at which the virus replicates within their body. The study published Wednesday is based on data gathered from 106 patients diagnosed with Ebola at the Kenema Government Hospital in Sierra Leone from May 25 to July 18. Some of the data on this group was incinerated because of fears that the nurses' station where the records were kept became contaminated #United States #Brazil #Technology #France #Russia #Africa #Argentina #opinion
Ebola fears ripple across continent to hurt east African tourism

Ebola fears ripple across continent to hurt east African tourism

NAIROBI (Reuters) - East Africa's Serengeti and Maasai Mara safari parks are as far if not further from the Ebola outbreak in the west of the continent than much of Europe which supplies the tourists, but you'd hardly guess that from the slump in bookings. In Tanzania and Kenya, tour operators say tented camps and luxury lodges where lion and elephant saunter past are surviving on visitors who have not yet written off the whole continent because of an outbreak that struck 5,000 km away. "The probability of dying from a tree falling on your head is probably higher than going on a safari in the Serengeti and catching Ebola," said John Corse of Nomad Tanzania, one of whose camps overlooks plains where wildebeest make the annual Great Migration, often described as a natural Wonder of the World. #Business #India #Brazil #Technology #France #Arabic #Argentina #Latin America #Mexico

NATO jets track "unusual" Russian bomber sorties

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - NATO aircraft tracked Russian strategic bombers over the Atlantic and Black Sea on Wednesday and sorties of fighters over the Baltic in what the Western alliance called an unusual burst of activity at a tense time in East-West relations. In all, NATO said in a statement, its jets had intercepted four groups of Russian aircraft in about 24 hours since Tuesday, and some were still on manoeuvres late on Wednesday afternoon. "These sizeable Russian flights represent an unusual level of air activity over European airspace," the alliance said #Business #China #Japan #Brazil #Technology #Russia #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico #russian
