  • MANAGUA, Nicaragua — Nicaragua reported Thursday its first death from chikungunya since the first cases of the mosquito-borne virus were detected in July of last year, officials said. A 22-month-old boy was the victim, government spokeswoman Rosario Murillo reported. Murillo gave no details about where the boy was from, but she said his sister showed symptoms of the virus and was receiving medical attention.

    Though not as deadly as dengue, chikungunya causes high fever, nausea, vomiting, severe joint pain and, in rare cases, death. The virus has historically been present in Africa, Asia and the Indian subcontinent, but has been spreading throughout the Americas in recent years.

    Between January and August, 2,704 cases of chikungunya have been registered in Nicaragua. A total of 5,399 people in the country have been infected since the first case was detected in July, 2014, according to health authorities.

  • Madrid (AFP) - Spain has detected its first domestic case of the painful mosquito-borne viral disease chikungunya in a 60-year-old man in the eastern province of Valencia, officials said Tuesday.

    The man was "most likely" infected in Gandia, a seaside Mediterranean resort, and was treated in hospital last month, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control said in a statement.

    "This is the first chikungunya case reported from Spain without travel history to endemic areas," the statement said, as all prior reported cases involved people who caught the virus while abroad.

  • It’s something that I consider a core competency of the company -- we’re good at it,” D’Amelio said in an interview. “One of the nice things about Pfizer is we have the capacity to do any size deal that we want.”

  • ...why would you post jobs and not hire anyone. Plus no news for sometime. Something has to be going on in the background that will be shocking either way very soon I suspect.
