for the next four

GENEVA Kole Calhoun Angels Jersey , March 9 (Xinhua) -- International experts, convened by the World Health Organization (WHO), Wednesday agreed on top priorities to advance R&D for Zika medical products after a three-day consultation on Zika research and development.

According to WHO, as of March 2, 67 companies and research institutions were already working on a number of products (31 on diagnostics, 18 on vaccines, 8 on therapeutics, 10 on vector control), which are at various stages of early development. No vaccine or therapeutic has yet been tested on humans.

"Vaccine development is still at an early stage and the most advanced candidates are still months away from entering early human clinical trials," Marie- Paule Kieny, WHO Assistant Director-General for Health Systems and Innovation, told a press conference.

"It is therefore possible that vaccines may come too late for the current Latin American outbreak, but the development of a vaccine remains an imperative for regions likely to be affected by Zika in the foreseeable future, in particular vaccines suitable for pregnant women and women of child bearing age," she noted.

However, Kieny said Zika diagnostic development is at a more advanced stage, and some tests have already obtained authorization in some countries.

Over 30 companies are working on or have developed potential diagnostic tests. There is general support for the development of a target product profile for a multiplex test that can diagnose dengue, chikungunya and Zika viruses.

Vector control experts have clearly stated that as traditional interventions, such as insecticide spraying, have not had significant impact on dengue transmission the same might apply to Zika.

An emergency meeting of the WHO Vector Control Advisory Group next week will fine-tune evaluation methods and a target product profile for innovative techniques.

"While product development is at an earlier stage than that for Ebola," concluded Kieny, "R&D methods and coordination among partners is much more advanced, largely thanks to the lessons learnt during the Ebola epidemic."

BEIJING, Nov. 3 (Xinhua) -- China's service sector activity accelerated in October, a private survey showed Friday.

The Caixin General Services Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) rebounded to 51.2 in October from 50.6 in September, according to the survey conducted by financial information service provider Markit and sponsored by Caixin Media Co. Ltd.

A reading above 50 indicates expansion, while a reading below reflects contraction.

RIO DE JANEIRO, Oct. 31 (Xinhua) -- Tourism in Brazil's Rio de Janeiro has seen losses estimated at 657 million reais (around 200 million U.S. dollars) from January to August in 2017, due to the violence that has wracked the city, a study revealed on Tuesday.

The figure, presented by the National Confederation of Goods, Services and Tourism (CNC), equates to the city's tourism revenue for between eight to nine days.

The bar and restaurant sectors were affected most by the violence, which lost around 332.1 million reais (101.5 million dollars), followed by transport, travel agencies and vehicle rental shops, with cumulative losses of 215.5 million reais (65.8 million dollars).

The hotel sector also suffered from a loss of 97.7 million reais (30 million dollars).

The CNC report said the tourism revenue drops 1.8 percent on average if the crime rate rises by 10 percent.

From January to September, Rio lost 10,237 jobs in the tourism sector, up from 6,823 jobs lost in 2015, the report said.

LA PAZ, May 29 (Xinhua) -- The Bolivian government opened investigations against the Bolivian Football Federation (FBF) for alleged bribes linked to the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA).

Financial statements from FBF have been requested, said Bolivian Minister, Tito Montano to local media.

The minister aims to determine the financial transactions of the soccer body.

Carlos Chavez is charged by the United State Department of Justice with receiving bribes of 3 million U.S. dollars in exchange for broadcasting and marketing rights for the next four editions of Copa America (Chile 2015, United States 2016, Brazil 2019 and Ecuador 2023).

The U.S. Attorney General Office revealed that the company Datisa, owner of the Copa America commercial rights, paid a total of 100 million dollars in bribes for the next four tournaments.

Montano said that in the case of confirming that Bolivian officials are involved in the case, these have to assume their responsibility with national law.

Meanwhile, Ramiro Guerrero, Attorney General of Bolivia, will meet with his team to determine legal actions to be taken.

"This is a corruption scandal that affects our country," he said.

"I never allowed myself to take bribes," said Carlos Chavez from Zurich, in the midst of election for FIFA presidency, where Joseph Blatter was reelected in spite of the current scandal.

"I am "clean" and the money destined to the national organization went to its accounts," Chavez said.

Your hand grip becomes weak so you might have to stop playing golf or bowling. But you can't.

The median nerve passes through the carpal tunnel to receive sensations from the thumb, index, and middle fingers of the hand. You may find it hard to differentiate hot from cold sensations. Due to your weakened strength, hand grip decreased and you are likely to objects. For some reasons, sometimes, tendons thickening and irritated so it enlarge and swelling narrows the carpal tunnel and cause the median nerve to be compressed.

If carpal tunnel is untreated, the muscles at the base of the thumb may be wasted. Anyone who is continuously experiencing pain and is.
