"Ausbreitung der Tigermücke soll verhindert werden"

"Das Land [Oberösterreich will] verhindern, dass die Larven hier überwintern können. Denn die Eier überstehen auch frostige Temperaturen – sie kleben an Gartenmöbeln, Blumentopfuntersetzern, Vogeltränken und Gießkannen – überall dort wo sich einmal Wasser gesammelt hat. Die Eier überleben auch dann, wenn das Behältnis längst ausgetrocknet ist. Die Landessanitätsdirektion bittet daher Gärten und Balkone vor dem Winter gelsenfeindlich zu machen und sämtliche Behälter zu reinigen."

Das wird sicher ein großer Erfolg. 🤦

Wir sollten uns lieber informieren, wie das dort, wo Dengue&Co schon länger "normal" sind, gemacht wird. Dann können wir rechtzeitig gegen die Maßnahmen demonstrieren, äh, oder so.

Im Ernst, ich war vor einer Ewigkeit in Singapur, und sehr beeindruckt von den dortigen Anti-Dengue-Maßnahmen.

🦟 Dengue rates plunged after release of lab-altered mosquitoes
➥ DW

「 The World Mosquito Program is looking to stop the spread of a number of life-threatening vector-borne diseases — among them dengue, Zika virus and yellow fever — by dispersing millions of Wolbachia bacteria-infected mosquitoes in places where these diseases are common 」

Why Dengue Outbreaks Are Becoming Larger and Less Predictable

Although no one is certain about what’s driving the increase and instability of dengue, climate change may be contributing as much of the world is getting both warmer and wetter.

#Dengue fever on the rise:
"Not only is the number of new infections steadily rising around the world, but outbreaks are becoming larger and less predictable.

All #mosquitos need water to breed, but another thing that has helped in its migration is its ability to use even the smallest of #water containers to do so, something as small as a discarded plastic bottle cap will do."

Dengue helps COVID infiltrate macrophages, and vice versa.

Particularily important as global warming/climate change affects cooler climates and continues to drive equatorial heat further northward.

#COVID #Dengue #Covid19

Sue writes:

"Dengue virus's primary target is macrophages. If you were previously infected with CoV2, antibodies from that infection attach to the macrophage receptors and help dengue infect the cell faster causing more cytokines, and possibly an uncontrollably cytokine storm."

She quote-tweets Hiroshi Yasuda:

"From a new preprint, 
'..anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies acquired from natural infection in humans..were cross-reactive with DENV-2 (dengue virus) and had the potential to enhance DENV-2 infection in K562 and U937 cells. 
In-silico and in-vitro studies indicated a strong interaction between SARS-CoV-2 antibodies and DENV-2 E-protein, providing a molecular basis for these findings.. 
anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies can cross-react with DENV-2 and can enhance its infection through ADE (antibody-dependent enhancement).'"

Dengue fever, also known as breakbone fever, is spreading rapidly in the US. The World Health Organization warns that the mosquito-borne disease could become endemic in many states by 2025. Dengue causes severe pain, fever, and bleeding, and can be fatal if not treated. #Dengue #BreakboneFever #Mosquitoes

The Danger of ‘Invisible’ #Biolabs Across the U.S.

Opinion by Dan Greene, August 31, 2023

"Recently, many #California residents were disturbed to learn that a small, privately-operated bio lab in the #CentralValley town of #Reedley was shut down by Fresno County Department of Public Health officials after they found that it had been improperly managing almost 1,000 laboratory mice and samples of infectious diseases including #COVID19, #rubella, #malaria, #dengue, #chlamydia, #hepatitis, and #HIV. The lab was registered to a company called #PrestigeBiotech that sold a variety of medical testing kits, including for pregnancy and COVID-19, and it was likely storing disease samples for the purpose of developing and validating its testing kits. Government authorities are still investigating the company’s history, but it appears to have previously operated a lab in Fresno under the name Universal MediTech, where city officials flagged it for investigation regarding improperly stored chemicals.

"From what is publicly known, the Reedley lab should likely have followed proper biosafety practices to minimize the risks of an #outbreak, and it apparently failed to do so. It could have caused illness, disruption, or even death among local communities and beyond depending on the circumstances of an outbreak. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (#CDC) maintains a system of four 'Biosafety Level' standards that are used worldwide for work with dangerous pathogens. Based on the pathogens that were being used at the Reedley lab, it probably should have followed Biosafety Level 3, which involves controlling the airflow inside the lab as well as a host of other practices, equipment, and facility design requirements.

"Yet, astonishingly, the U.S. government seems to not have even known that the Reedley lab existed until it was discovered by chance by Jesalyn Harper, an observant local city code enforcement officer—the only such officer working full-time in the entire city. Once discovered, the Fresno County and California Departments of Public Health found it to be in violation of local and state codes, including those for registering clinical labs and managing medical waste. Based on our reading of available information, it was likely also in violation of federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations for protecting workers from bloodborne pathogens. But these codes require proactive reporting, and the lab simply never reported any issues to regulators. In slightly different circumstances, it would likely have continued to operate unnoticed for a long time."
