  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updates COVID-19 Transmission Webpage to Clarify Information about Types of Spread

    Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updates COVID-19 Transmission Webpage to Clarify Information about Types of Spread| site |



    (May 22, 2020) - - Today (May 22, 2020), The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published the following information:

    CDC actively reviews our website to make sure the content is accessible and clear for all types of audiences. As a result of one such review, edits were made to the organization of the COVID-19 transmission page, including adding a headline in an attempt to clarify other types of spread beyond person to person. This change was intended to make it easier to read, and was not a result of any new science.

    After media reports appeared that suggested a change in CDC’s view on transmissibility, it became clear that these edits were confusing. Therefore, we have once again edited the page to provide clarity. The primary and most important mode of transmission for COVID-19 is through

    (February 26, 2020) - - Today, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published the following information: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has confirmed an infection with the virus that causes COVID-19 in California in a person who reportedly did not have relevant travel history or exposure to another known patient with COVID-19.

  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Update on the Diamond Princess Cruise Ship in Japan

    Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Update on the Diamond Princess Cruise Ship in Japan | site |



    (February 18, 2020) - - Today, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published the following information:

    We commend the extraordinary efforts by the Government of Japan to institute quarantine measures onboard the Diamond Princess. While the quarantine potentially conferred a significant public health benefit in slowing transmission, CDC’s assessment is that it may not have been sufficient to prevent transmission among individuals on the ship. CDC believes the rate of new infections on board, especially among those without symptoms, represents an ongoing risk. Therefore, to protect the health of the American public, all passengers and crew of the ship have been placed under travel restrictions, preventing them from returning to the United States for at least 14 days after they had left the Diamond Princess. Currently, there are m

    (February 15, 2020) - - Today, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provided the following information: The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is supporting the Department of State-led mission to repatriate U.S. citizens who want to return to the United States from Japan, currently aboard the Diamond Princess cruise ship. HHS is committed to protecting the health and safety of all Americans. To fulfill our responsibilities to U.S. citizens, as well as to reduce the burden on the Japanese healthcare system, the U.S. government recommends that U.S. citizens disembark and return to the United States for further monitoring. These measures are consistent with the careful policies we have instituted to limit the potential spread of the disease. There are approximately 400 U.S. citizens onboard the Diamond Princess cruise ship. Due to the dynami...

  • World Health Organization says Four Countries in the African Region have Licensed Vaccine in Milestone for Ebola Prevention

    World Health Organization says Four Countries in the African Region have Licensed Vaccine in Milestone for Ebola Prevention| site |



    Brazzaville/Geneva - - (February 14, 2020) - - Today, the World Health Organization (WHO) published the following information: The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Burundi, Ghana and Zambia have licensed an Ebola vaccine, just 90 days after World Health Organization (WHO) prequalification. Registration of the vaccine is expected in additional countries in the coming weeks. The licensing of the vaccine means that the manufacturer can stockpile and widely distribute this vaccine to African countries at risk of Ebola virus disease outbreaks. Once licensed doses are available, use of the vaccine will not require clinical trial or other research protocols. "The approval of the Ebola vaccine by these countries is another milestone in the fight against this unforgiving disease," said WHO Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. “A...
