Children are too often being prescribed antibiotics that have been put on a list of treatments that should only be used sparingly because of fears of the development of superbugs. An analysis of sales in the community of oral antibiotics specially formulated for children in 70 high and middle-income countries has found that consumption of the drugs varies widely from country to country. In a quarter of all countries antibiotics which should only be used under certain strict circumstances accounted for 20 per cent of total antibiotic consumption. The analysis, published in the journal Lancet Infectious Diseases, also found that the drug amoxicillin, an antibiotic to treat the most common childhood infections, is used at relatively low levels. In 2017, the World Health Organization grouped antibiotics into three categories – access, watch and reserve. The list was developed to ensure that the right antibiotics are used in the right circumstances, as well as reducing the … [Read more...] about Children given antibiotics which should only be used sparingly
Athletes from Taiwan compete at the Olympics under the name of a make-believe country: Chinese Taipei. They march behind an imaginary national flag and, if they win a gold medal, hear an "alternate national anthem" being played. Imagine if France or Australia had to use an assumed name at the Olympics, or the United States and Japan were banned from flying their flags. A referendum to challenge this will be held in Taiwan on Saturday. It asks if the self-governing island should compete in international sports events — including the 2020 Tokyo Olympics — as "Taiwan" instead of "Chinese Taipei." "We are the sole IOC member banned from using our own country's name," said Chi Cheng, a bronze medalist in the 1968 Olympics. "We are the only member who cannot sing our national anthem and fly our national flag. We are the only one. This shows how seriously China is suppressing us." No matter what voters want, nothing is likely to change. The government of the People's Republic of … [Read more...] about Taiwan or Chinese Taipei: Voters to decide which name should be used for the Olympics

He said that even 50% of the potential is not used.

We are ready to provide support to Kyrgyz entrepreneurs in entering the European market,” he said. When asked whether the EU is planning to assist Kyrgyzstan in establishing necessary laboratories, Yaroshevich answered that the European Union has such an opportunity. “This has been implemented in other countries. As for Kyrgyzstan, I don’t know if this issue was discussed,” he explained.
