associated with Zika virus

by Xinhua writer Wang Xiangjiang

NAIROBI, June 22 (Xinhua) -- Sixty years ago, a historic Africa tour by then Chinese Premier Zhou Enlai marked the beginning of modern diplomatic ties between China and Africa.

Since then, the two peoples have pulled together for the common cause of realizing national liberation and safeguarding the interests of developing countries.

Late last year, the successful Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) summit held in Johannesburg ushered in a new era of win-win cooperation and common prosperity.

With a historic opportunity unfolding before both China and Africa, meaningful exchanges and cooperation of Sino-African media entities will pave the way for a stronger voice for developing countries as a whole.

"The current Euro-centric hegemony in global affairs is hinged on a clearly biased, often malicious, narrative that favors the West, victimizing Asia and Africa, and the rest of the world," says Momodou Sabally, former Presidential Affairs Minister of The Gambia, at the 3rd Forum on China-Africa Media Cooperation in Beijing, which opend Tuesday.

Mr. Sabally's comment has pinpointed the essence of an unbalanced structure of world opinion, where Western media have long occupied an asymmetrically dominant position, often at the expense of developing countries whose appeals and efforts go unnoticed, ignored, or even worse, denigrated.

As China and Africa emerge in the global arena, "we need to realize that doing and being better may be a necessary, but will never constitute a sufficient condition for our desired and envisaged position of progress and prestige to be attained," says Sabally.

2016 is also the starting-point of implementing the ambitious 10-point development plan unveiled at the FOCAC summit. Barely months later, early fruitful results have already been achieved in fields such as setting up an industrial cooperation fund, extending emergency food assistance, training African talents, increasing special loans for Africa's small and medium-sized businesses and opening more direct flights.

Of these areas of bilateral cooperation, media exchanges and cooperation between China and Africa has always constituted an indispensable part.

"As Africa climbs the mountain of digital media, we are proud to have China stand by us!" says Sabally, citing a statement of a fellow African delegate at the Beijing forum.

Indeed, the Chinese government has attached great importance to Sino-African media exchanges and cooperation. For years, China has been hosting symposiums for African journalists and officials in charge of media affairs. Every year, China undertakes the training of 1,000 African media professionals. China has been promoting more exchanges and visits between Chinese and African media professionals and the mutually dispatching of more correspondents.

Addressing the forum, Erastus Mwencha, Deputy Chairperson of the African Union Commission, notes that the gathering came at a right time when the African continent is highly attracting international investment and its rapidly increasing population constitutes a large market for the world economic growth.

"Therefore the media has an important role to play in publicizing and promoting the investment opportunities in both China and Africa," says Mwencha.

It is high time that China and Africa keep up the momentum to enlarge the voice of developing countries across the global mainstream media.

With this unremitting effort, the world will get to know better a China that is constantly progressing, reforming herself and opening up, and an Africa that is thriving with developmental marvels. Enditem

WASHINGTON Air Max 97 Ultra Nere Bianche Scarpe Uomo Nike , Jan. 25 (Xinhua) -- Birth defects have increased in parts of the United States that had local Zika virus transmission in 2016, a new report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention said Thursday.

Areas with local transmission of Zika -- southern Florida Scarpe Donne Nike Air Max 97 Shockproof Coral Rosa , a portion of south Texas, and Puerto Rico -- saw a 21 percent increase in birth defects in the second half of 2016 compared with the first half of that year Scarpe Uomo Air Max 97 Bianche Nere , according to the study published in CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

Researchers said it's not known if this increase is due to local transmission of Zika virus alone, or if there are other contributing factors.

Most of the mothers who had babies with the Zika virus-linked birth defects did not have laboratory evidence of Zika virus infection Scarpe Uomo Air Max 97 Nere Rosse , they said.

The mothers either were not tested, were not tested at the right time Scarpe Uomo Air Max 97 OG GS Nere Bianche , or were not exposed to Zika virus.

For the study, CDC researchers looked at nearly one million births in 2016 in 15 U.S. states and territories Scarpe Uomo Air Max 97 OG GS Rosse , and found about three out of every 1,000 newborns had a birth defect possibly associated with Zika virus infection in the mother.

About half of the babies with birth defects were born with brain abnormalities or microcephaly Scarpe Uomo Air Max 97 OG GS Blu , which causes abnormally small heads.

The other half had neural tube defects, eye abnormalities Scarpe Uomo Air Max 97 KPU TPU Blu Bianche , or nervous system damage such as joint problems and deafness.

Because many pregnant women exposed to Zika virus in late 2016 gave birth in 2017, CDC researchers anticipated that there could be another increase in possible Zika-related birth defects when 2017 data are analyzed.

"Babies with Zika-related birth defects need all the help they can get Scarpe Uomo Air Max 97 KPU TPU Silver Bianche Rosse , as soon as possible and for as long as they need it," CDC Director Brenda Fitzgerald said in a statement.

"This report highlights the critical importance of documenting birth defects possibly related to Zika and our need to maintain vigilance Scarpe Uomo Air Max 97 Gold Bianche ," Fitzgerald said.

Zika is spread mostly by the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito and can be passed from a pregnant woman to her fetus.

There is no vaccine or medicine for Zika .
