  2. Even though this recurring epidemic has killed over 5,000 people since 2010, its primary cause wasn't identified until early this year.Now, researchers have learnt that a majority of the children being admitted to BRD have scrub typhus a mite-borne disease endemic in U.P. Because they weren't treated during early stages of the disease, the scrub typhus triggered brain inflammation, which can be very hard to cure The confused history of research into the Gorakhpur pestilence begins in 1978. Today, researchers suspect that Japanese encephalitis wasn't the only cause even then. Scrub typhus was hiding in the encephalitis burden during the seventies as well. . Wrong approach . Why did it take so long to pinpoint scrub typhus? First, because we were too focused on the usual suspects to look beyond them. Over the past few decades, organisations such as the National Institute of Virology and the National Centre for Disease Control, visited BRD Hospital repeatedly and ran lab tests for dozens of pathogens known to cause encephalitis, such as enteroviruses, the chikungunya, herpes simplex and dengue viruses, and the malaria parasite. . But researchers who first found scrub typhus in BRD's encephalitis wards, say this was the wrong approach The scientists should have studied the symptoms of each patient in detail, logging data such as the length of fever before encephalitis,and involvement of organs other than the brain, like the liver and the spleen.

  3. These symptoms would have revealed that the epidemic wasn't due to typical viruses, but the scrub- typhus bacterium that is not known to trigger encephalitis outbreaks. . Instead, the focus remained on lab testing, allowing the disease to continue killing, unseern. Deaf to data: Once Japanese encephalitis vaccinations began in 2007, incidence of this disease at the hospital fell to less than 20%, but encephalitis cases kept coming. It was obvious to researchers that something other than Japanese encephalitis was at work. For a brief period, doctors at BRD suspected that enteroviruses, a class of viruses to which the poliovirus belongs, were the top cause for the epidemic. But research didn't bear out this suspicion either. Yet, even today, the government is talking of poor sanitation as the reason behind the pestilence at the hospital (enteroviruses spread through contaminated water).And while pushing Japanese encephalitis vaccination campaigns is crucial, as the government is doing, this won't make a dent in the hospital's burden. The government can't ignore the science for a number of reasons. First, it's going to take a miraculous effort by the government to weed out scrub typhus in the State. Most patients who develop fever, the first sign of scrub typhus, go to private healthcare practitioners and not government hospitals.So, these private practitioners, many of whom aren't medically qualified, must be targeted in training programmes. Unless they suspect scrub typhus in children and treat it before it advances to encephalitis, children will keep coming to BRD

  4. Page 14World News: China bans imports from N. Korea China will halt iron, iron ore and seafood imports from North Korea, following through on new UN sanctions after U.S. pressure for Beijing to strong arm Pyongyang over its ally's nuclear programme e Beijing had pledged to fully enforce the latest sanctions after the United States accused China of not doing enough to rein in its neighbour, which relies heavily on the Asian giant for its economic survival. . The United Nations Security Council, including permanent member Beijing, approved tough sanctions against Pyongyang on August 6 that could cost the country $I billion a year. China, which is suspected of failing to enforce past UN measures, accounts for 90% of North Korea's trade. For Daily News & Editorial Analysis, you can follow me on Unacademy

  5. Business Page 15: Export growth in July slows to 3.94% Goods exports rose for the twelfth consecutive month with shipments in July registering a 3.94% year on-year growth to $22.5 billion.However,this was the slowest pace of growth since November 2016, when exports grew by 2.56%. . Data showed that major commodity groups of export showing positive growth in the month included engineering goods (1516%), Petroleum Products (20.27%), organic and inorganic chemicals (20.67%) cotton yarn/fabrics and made-ups and handloom Products (5.39%) and marine products (30.53%) Non-petroleum and non-gems and jewellery exports in July increased 6.93% to $22.5 billion. Meanwhile, goods imports in July recorded 15.42% to $33.99 billion-the slowest pace since l 13% growth in January 2017. This led to trade deficit (goods) narrowing on a month-on-month basis to $1 1.45 billion, the lowest since $10.5 billion recorded in the month of March 2017. 'Rising rupee hurts": This is quite evident from the trade data that shows that while exports for July grew by 3.94%, in rupee terms the growth has turned negative. In rupee terms, exports shrunk 0.32% in July to .45 lakh crore. while engineering exports have still been growing at a respectable pace, it is due to pick up in base metals. Major commodity group of imports showing high growth in July were petroleum products (15.02%), electronic goods (22.5%), machinery, electrical and non-electrical (7.34%), Pearls, precious and semi-precious stones (6.86%) and gold (95.05%)

  6. Busness Page: Retail,WPI inflation accelerate. Retail inflation as measured by the consumer price index (CPI) accelerated to 2.36% in July after easing for three straight months. . The gains in retail prices were driven by a hardening of prices in sugar and confectionery items, pan, tobacco and intoxicants. However, there was disinflation in the food basket. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI), which factors in CPl for arriving at its monetary policy,had earlier this month slashed the key interest rate (repo rate) by 25 basis points to 6%. Separately, skyrocketing tomato Prices Propelled inflation at the wholesale level to 1.88% in July from 0.9% in June, with food category overall contributing significantly to the uptick in WPI terms. . Inflation in the food segment of the primary articles category in July came in at 2 15%, snapping a two-month contraction. Within this, the fruits and vegetables segment contributed the most, with inflation coming in at 29%. 'Seasonal, temporary":what we have to recognise is that these are seasonal influences and are therefore temporary in nature. "We must look at core WPl inflation and see if there are any factors pushing it up. Otherwise, this increase will subside shortly.As far as fuel is concerned, there has not been any significant movement in crude oil prices, so that wouldn't put any pressure in either direction
