Cheap Anaheim Ducks Hoodies Barima/Waini

More than two weeks have passed but no additional deaths have been recorded in Region One,NFL Jerseys Outlet, Barima/Waini, resulting from the gastrointestinal illness which has been plaguing communities there for just over two months.Health Minister Dr Leslie Ramsammy confirmed this development yesterday when he commented on the current impact of the illness which has caused the death of several persons from the communities of Port Kaituma and Kariakou.He pointed out that while the illness is still very much present in the region, health teams dispatched by the Ministry are able to manage the cases that yet arise.Dr Ramsammy has attributed the Ministry’s success to the fact that health workers have been closely following the protocols established by the Ministry. However, the Minister divulged that visiting health teams have observed that in spite of the evident success thus far there are some health workers in the region who do not fully comply with the Ministry’s protocol.As such he noted that the Ministry has intensified its vigilance in order to ensure that the situation remains manageable.Dr Ramsammy further disclosed that the Ministry is still awaiting confirmation from the Caribbean Epidemiology Centre (CAREC) in Trinidad to ascertain the actual illness. He explained that although some samples were tested at the local National Public Health Reference Laboratory, some were also sent to CAREC to confirm those findings as well as to detect other pathogens that cannot be detected at the local facility.Gastrointestinal illnesses can be caused by a variety of communicable diseases and infections, which gain entry by and/or affect the gastrointestinal tract. Symptoms of gastrointestinal infection, which are not necessarily confined to diarrhoea and vomiting,China Jerseys Cheap, are caused by the organisms themselves or by the toxins that they produce.Various pathogens,Cheap NFL Jerseys Online, which usually get into the human body through contaminated food and water, can produce an infection of the gastrointestinal tract. This manifests itself in diarrhoea, often accompanied by pains in the stomach, nausea and vomiting.Among the most frequent pathogens at fault are the e-coli bacteria, salmonella and poison from staphylococcus.Chief Medical Officer, Dr Shamdeo Persaud,Authentic NFL Jerseys Wholesale, had weeks earlier told this newspaper that the support from CAREC is required to establish the pathogen that is causing the illness. “It might even be a strain of the illness that we may not know about,NFL Jerseys Wholesale,” said Dr Persaud.According to him, investigations by health teams have led them to specific areas which have been tagged as the source of the illness. And the ‘common thread’ detected in the areas is the fact that mining and logging activities are carried out in all of them. It has also been observed,Nike Air Max 95 White, according to the CMO, that the sanitation of most of the areas is not of an acceptable standard thus could result in the contamination of the communities’ source of potable water.He listed some of the problem areas as Baramita, Barama Mouth and the rivers and creeks nearby, even as he noted that it is quite easy for water to be contaminated and spread harmful pathogens to residents.The current illness, residents have claimed, has as its symptoms vomiting, cramps and diarrhoea, with the latter appearing in a “whitish-like rice water” colour. The state of affairs had caused a number of persons to reach the conclusion that the Region was suffering from a cholera outbreak, a pronouncement which was categorically dismissed by the Health Minister.But according to Dr Persaud, while the level of gastroenteritis is not at an overly significant rate, the deaths that had occurred could be more due to the long distances some residents have to travel in order reach medical attention.He explained that persons suffering from symptoms of diarrhoea would become dehydrated, a development which could have ultimately led to their death.As part of the efforts to reduce the impact of the illness, which according to reports have claimed the lives of both adults and children, Dr Persaud disclosed that health teams have been intensifying its efforts to encourage strict hygiene practices.“Our health teams are going village to village and house to house educating residents to treat their water and to wash their hands after using the washroom to help reduce the impact of this situation…”The CMO and Dr Julian Amsterdam had each led medical teams to Port Kaituma and Kariakou respectively to garner necessary samples of blood, stool and water which have since been sent to the laboratories for testing.
