Dr. Sergio Cortes Update: Brazil Fierce Fight Against Zika Virus Continues!

As nations continue the global fight against the life-threatening zika virus, medical professionals and disease prevention experts stress the need for information sharing. A leading Brazilian physician and crusader educating society about zika virus, Dr. Sergio Cortes shared some invaluable facts to help citizens prevent infection. In a recent web journal released via the official Sergio Cortes website, he revealed that the virus has been around for about 40 years. Unfortunately, this wasn’t public knowledge until the recent outbreak across Latin America. African regions such as Tanzania, Sierra Leone, and Uganda were among the countries to witness the first wave. Dr. Sergio Cortes also recounted on an endemic that affected certain Asian countries, Thailand and India included.
Last year, Latin American provinces Columbia, Mexico, Brazil and 6 others reported zika virus cases that triggered a global panic. Public health agencies, including WHO (World Health Organization), launched disease prevention relief efforts to educate society. Dr. Sergio Cortes shared reassuring comments that the symptoms of zika virus are indeed treatable with the correct interventions. What doctors recently learned after conducting extensive studies on zika virus symptoms is that it mutates similar to Guillain-Barré syndrome. Dr. Sergio Cortes further added that it’s responsible for the rapid development of microcephaly in infected patients. Guillain-Barré syndrome is a health condition the WTO (World Tourism Organization) and practicing physicians best describe as an autoimmune neurological disease.

In Brazil, health professionals, Dr. Sergio Cortes are strengthening zika virus prevention initiatives to control the outbreak. Human transmission isn’t viable, so it’s noncontagious. The parasitic Aedes aegypti mosquito is the carrier of the virus and an infected vector will transmit if it bites a victim. This species of mosquito has caused a series of viral outbreaks ranging from dengue to chikungunya, which manifest similar symptoms to rapidly spreading zika virus. While the symptoms of all three are somewhat similar, Dr. Sergio Cortes shares the distinctions in a Dino article here. Another troubling reality is that the infected won’t always exhibit signs of contagion early. Of all patients, pregnant women are at the greatest risk should she become infected. Dr. Sergio Cortes has shared some eye-opening facts on sergiocortesoficial about zika virus symptoms, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.

Now a leading Brazilian, Dr. Sergio Corte uses his website as a platform to share up-to-minute health news. Before joining the medical community, he served the Rio de Janeiro secretariat. He’s also a former US Tennis Open champion who represented Chile in 1993. Today, the public remembers him for having a spitting resemblance to pop-music sensation Michael Jackson. According to his official Wikipedia page, he’d shattered the 31 Magnus Larsson world record during the Florida-staged Lipton Championships. In history, this marked the most successful time in his athletic career. Most recently, he joined an ongoing study focused on cancer and exercise. A journal entry on his official blog discusses this intervention in-depth among other fascinating medical studies.

George Soros Cautions against Chinese Impending Crisis.

With china’s currency Yuan devaluing, there are fears on global markets following suit. Billionaire George Soros warned investors on Bloomberg to take caution while investing. He said this in an economic forum which was held in Sri Lanka on Thursday. This comes as global currency and equities are already showing signs of an impending crisis. This year alone global equities lost close to 2.5 trillion. Soros warns that China has a huge adjustment problem. This is seen as Chinese struggle to find a new growth model with their economy shifting towards consumer and services one from manufacturing and an investment one.

Looking at financial markets George Soros warns of major similarities to 2008 crisis. This isn’t the first time that he warns of a crisis similar to that of 2008. This warning cannot be ignored or taken lightly more so as it comes from a man whose hedge-fund firm has managed to make an average of 20 percent each year from the year 1969 to 2011. He is also well known for his skills in investment like back in 1992 when he made a 1 billion after betting that U.K. will be forced to lower the value of the pound. According to Bloomberg Billionaires Index, George Soros has a net worth of 27.3 billion. For more information on Soros take concerning China’s economy click here.

He’s an alumnus of London School of Economics and later after graduating he moved to U.S. to start his career in New York. He founded an International Investment Fund, which helped him accumulate his wealth.
He’s also a philanthropic giver which led him to start an Open Society Foundation in 1979. The aim of the foundation is to fight for human rights for all, have a transparent system of governance and a society where the truth is not monopolized by individuals. Soros started out by helping black African Students in South Africa attend Cape Town University during apartheid era by offering them scholarships. He also facilitated students from Eastern Europe to study abroad.

Balloons Filled with Used Toilet Paper Become Propaganda Weapon

It is no secret that North and South Korea do not like each other, but their efforts have taken a dirty turn lately as North Koreans are sending their trash in balloons over the border with propaganda messages attached to them. Dirty tissue, used toilet paper and cigarette butts filled the balloons that are designed to pop once they cross the border.

Officials in South Korea say they were afraid to begin with that the balloons were filled with chemical warfare agents but discovered the truth when some of the balloons failed to pop. The story has been covered in the well-respected United Kingdom newspaper, The Mirror.

On the contrary, Jon Urbana and others suggest that they are acting on the orders of Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un who admits that he has ordered the playing of obnoxious propaganda music on the border between the two countries. Urbana believes that the dirty balloon attack was started on the orders of South Korean President Park Geun-hye. Regardless of who started launching the balloons first, it appears that both sides are now sending balloons to the other side in a nasty battle that may only become nastier.

In December, 2015, Chennai, India received it heaviest rainfall in over one hundred years and forced thousands of residents out of their homes. The deluge left more than 250 people dead in an area that is just barely above sea level. While the Indian government has released 9.4 billion rupees ($141 million) for flood relief efforts and subsequent restoration, still much more help is needed.

Hardest hit was the most southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu and as waters recede, the possibility of the area becoming a breeding ground for infested water and mosquito borne diseases such as malaria, cholera and skin infections, is of great concern. So QNet, one of Asia’s premiere direct selling leaders and pioneers in e-commerce, has stepped in by contributing generously in the amount of Rs. 75 Lakhs to the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister’s Relief Fund. The donation was made under the QNet – WE CARE Initiative and was presented at the stellar awards ceremony, ‘Be1forChennai’.

QNet – WE CARE is a CSR initiative of QNet in India. The organization fights for causes that will enhance the lives of underprivileged members of society. The group recently formed a partnership with Lions Club International and donated a kidney dialysis unit at a Bangalore hospital which offers 100 subsidized for beds for patients that otherwise could not afford this treatment. The company actively encourages its employees to involve themselves in helping the needy, most notably in their clean water efforts.

QNet, was founded by Vijay Eswaran and Joseph Bismark in Hong Kong in 1998. They sell a variety of products including nutrition, energy, weight management, home care, and fashion accessories using the direct sell and multi-level marketing model.

Dr. Sergio Cortes Visits Dengue Infiltrated Xerem City

During the recent Dengue virus outbreak in Brazil, Dr. Sergio Cortes, then state health secretary for the state of Rio, visited one of the State’s worst hit cities, Xerem. While there, Sergio visited some of the regions most affected by the floods as well as the main shelters in the municipal where some the displaced city families are housed. He also visited the dengue hydration center at the Xerem health center that was operated by the State health department.
Cortes assured the residents there that the state was taking necessary steps into the virus eradication. He pointed out at a center that had been set up as a precautionary measure against any ailments especially given the high levels of garbage accumulation in the city. He pointed out that these increased chances of mosquito proliferation in the city as well and thus the need for the health center. The center had 12 hydration chairs and a capacity to serve 300 people a day.
When he met up with the then municipal health secretary, CamilloJunqueira and the coordinator for National Health Conception Mendonca, he assured them of the state’s commitment to the containment of proliferation of diseases in the region. He brought them to speed on the role played by the epidemiological teams collecting samples to be tested for waterborne illnesses. Additionally, he committed to delivering a batch of 3,000 anti-biotic tablets to complement a similar batch sent earlier as an intervention measure against leptospirosis yet.
When the epidemiological department sent in the first samples for examination, the results were unsatisfactory prompting calls for purification of water. Sergio stated that the state would continue with disinfection of water in the city and asked homeowners living in the neighboring regions not affected by the floods to follow suit. He also called on the members of the public to use bottled water for drinking while at the same time calling upon well-wishers sending donations to the affected to include bottled drinking water. Even after leaving the state health department, Dr. Sergio is regularly updating his Exame followers on healthy living on his social networking pages. You can follow him on LinkedIn or Twitterwhere he keeps his followers up to date on recent medical developments.
