Trump campaign claims it has filed suit to halt absentee vote count in Michigan

first_imgThe Trump campaign claims to have filed suit to halt the vote count in Michigan. In a statement Wednesday, campaign manager Bill Stepien said that the campaign “has not been provided with meaningful access to numerous counting locations to observe the opening of ballots and the counting process, as guaranteed by Michigan law.”He said the suit was filed in the Michigan Court of Claims “to halt counting until meaningful access has been granted.” As of the time of filing, Democrat Joe Biden continues to claim the lead, with the state still in the process of counting some 400,000 ballots that were not counted Tuesday. These are largely absentee, and expected to continue to help Biden.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden speaks with people at Birmingham Unitarian Church in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., Saturday, Oct. 31, 2020, with former President Barack Obama.

Michigan’s anti-Whitmer protests were also organizing grounds for would-be militia kidnappers

first_imgAt the rally beforehand, leading Republicans had whipped up the crowd with extremist rhetoric. “We are in a war, right now. We are in a war for the hearts, the soul, the traditions and the freedom of our state and our country … it is up to us to end the shutdown,” said then-congressional candidate Mike Detmer (who later finished second in his race), adding that opposition to the COVID-19 measures needed to continue for “tyranny to go right back down that dark hole from whence it came.”Four of the men, including Fox, participated in the rain-drenched “Judgement Day” protest on May 14 that had been preceded by a deluge of violent online rhetoric calling for Whitmer’s death. The rally attracted only a handful of participants—who were unable to enter the Capitol because it was a Saturday, when the building normally is closed—but among them was a man dangling a doll, serving as an effigy of Whitmer, from a noose.Fox was also at the May 18 event in Grand Rapids called “Sheriffs Speak Out” at which several Republicans, include House Speaker Mike Shirkey and Barry County sheriff Dar Leaf, spoke. Militia plotters William and Michael Null also were there, acting as onstage security. – Advertisement – – Advertisement – Of the 14 men facing federal and state charges in the case, the Post found eight of them—three facing federal charges, and five facing state charges—who participated in at least seven of the anti-Whitmer protests. The leader of the plot, 37-year-old Alex Fox, was among six of the men who participated in the first of the protests on April 30 in Lansing, when a large crowd of armed militiamen successfully shut down deliberations in the state House by trying to invade its chambers.Protestors try to enter the Michigan House of Representative chamber and are being kept out by the Michigan State Police after the American Patriot Rally organized by Michigan United for Liberty protest for the reopening of businesses on the steps of the Michigan State Capitol in Lansing, Michigan on April 30, 2020. - The group is upset with Michigan Gov.

Vietnam, Thailand continue to battle avian flu

first_imgDec 29, 2004 (CIDRAP News) – Vietnam and Thailand have continued to battle avian influenza in recent weeks, with a total of 19 outbreaks reported in a dozen provinces, according to health officials of the two countries.Vietnam has reported seven outbreaks in six provinces, while Thailand has reported 12 outbreaks in six provinces, according to information published by the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE).A total of 10,750 birds died of the disease or were killed in control efforts in Vietnam from Nov 25 through Dec 24, says a report by Dr. Bui Quang Anh, director of animal health in the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development. The disease struck poultry flocks ranging from 125 to 4,900 birds, all in the Mekong Delta in southern Vietnam.”These infectious areas so far have been completely put under control,” Bui stated in a report published yesterday by Vietnam News, the state news agency. But he warned that Vietnam is at risk for more outbreaks because the weather is cooling and poultry transport and consumption are increasing.Thailand’s report to OIE said about 3,300 ducks, hens, and fighting cocks, 241 of which were sick, were destroyed from Dec 17 to 23 because of avian flu. The report by Dr. Yukol Limlamthong of the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives did not specify the virus, but the disease was listed as highly pathogenic avian flu, implying that it was H5N1.The report said seven of the 12 outbreaks were in the northern province of Phitsanu Lok.Two more avian flu outbreaks in Vietnam were reported today by Xinhua, China’s state news agency. Quoting the local newspaper Labor, the report said 850 birds in the southern province of Ca Mau died or were culled because of the disease.Vietnam’s report to OIE lists the flu virus as an H5 type but does not identify the “N,” or neuraminidase, number. Vietnam and Thailand have lost millions of poultry while battling outbreaks of H5N1 avian flu for much of the past year. In addition, Vietnam has had 27 confirmed human cases of the illness, 20 of them fatal, and Thailand has had 17 human cases with 12 deaths.In other recent developments, about 9,000 ducks have been destroyed in South Korea because of an outbreak of suspected H5N2 avian flu, a milder strain than H5N1, according to a Dec 22 Agence France-Presse (AFP) report.The ducks were on a farm in Gwangju, about 200 miles south of Seoul, the report said. The outbreak was detected Dec 1, but confirmatory test results on the virus were still awaited at the time of the report.South Korea battled outbreaks of H5N1 avian flu beginning late in 2003 but had no human cases. The AFP report said the government declared the disease under control in March 2004.See also:Vietnam’s report to OIEftp://ftp.oie.int/infos_san_archives/eng/2004/en_041224v17n52.pdfThailand’s report to OIEftp://ftp.oie.int/infos_san_archives/eng/2004/en_041224v17n52.pdflast_img read more

Report: Azerbaijanis likely caught H5N1 from swans

first_imgMay 31, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – Experts who investigated two clusters of human cases of H5N1 avian influenza in Azerbaijan in March concluded that one cluster marked the first time humans probably contracted the disease from wild birds—in this case, dead swans.”Close contact with and de-feathering of infected wild swans were the most plausible exposures to influenza A/H5N1 virus in the Daikyand cluster,” which included seven confirmed cases and four deaths, says the investigators’ report, published this week in the monthly issue of Eurosurveillance.”The . . . cluster in Daikyand settlement is the first event where wild birds were the most likely source of influenza A/H5N1 infection in humans,” states the report by a team of 20 authors from several countries and the World Health Organization (WHO).The WHO reported in March that wild swans were suspected as the source of infection in the cases. The Eurosurveillance article is the first detailed published presentation of the evidence for that view.Two clusters of H5N1 cases were investigated in Azerbaijan in March. Azeri authorities reported a cluster of nine possible cases in Daikyand, a town in southeastern Azerbaijan, Mar 6. Three days later, two more suspected cases were reported in Bayim-Sarov, Tarter district, in the east-central part of the country. The human cases had been preceded by outbreaks in wild and domestic birds in February.A WHO-led international team of 11 experts investigated the cases with the help of a field laboratory from the US Naval Medical Research Unit 3 from Cairo, Egypt. Influenza A/H5 was confirmed in seven of the patients from Daikyand, including six from the same family and another from a neighboring family. Four cases were fatal, and five patients were females between the ages of 15 and 20.Family members initially denied any contact with sick or dead wild birds or domestic poultry, but others reported that many wild swans had died in the area in February and that the family might have had contact with dead swans, the report says. Relatives of the patents eventually revealed that the affected family had been involved in de-feathering dead swans. Swan feathers are used in pillows and bring a good price in the area, the article says.In the Tarter district, 1 of the 2 suspected cases was confirmed and the other was classified as probable, according to the report. The investigators said the two patients, a 24-year-old man and his 18-year-old sister, had bought and eaten a turkey that was thought to have been ill.While affirming that the Daikyand victims probably caught the virus by handling wild swans, the report says that limited human-to-human transmission can’t be ruled out, given the incomplete information available.In other observations, the report says the Azeri cases point up the importance of oxygen therapy in H5N1 infections.”Severe hypoxia, caused by the prolonged course of viral pneumonia, appeared to be underrecognised and treated late in children,” the report sates. “The early establishment of oxygen saturation monitoring and provision of continuous oxygen therapy is therefore crucial to prevent decompensation and multi-organ failure already observed” in H5N1 cases elsewhere.Gilsdorf A, Boxall N, Gasimov V, et al.
