Of the 314 people who were sick, 246 were adults and 65 were children, while the ages of three were not yet known, the OSDH said. Seventeen people received kidney dialysis treatment for hemolytic uremic syndrome, a potentially fatal condition. The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) said that the last known case-patient fell ill Sep 6 and that it believed the outbreak was over. All the cases have been linked to the Country Cottage restaurant in Locust Grove, Okla., the OSDH said. According to previous reports, most cases occurred in people who ate at the restaurant between Aug 15 and 17. Sep 17, 2008 (CIDRAP News) An outbreak of Escherichia coli O111 infections in Oklahoma seems to have run its course after sickening 314 people, putting 72 in hospitals, and killing one, Oklahoma officials announced yesterday. See also: Investigators have interviewed 1,843 people in connection with the outbreak, the OSDH said, but have not yet identified a specific food vehicle in the outbreak. “Health investigators are reviewing results of interviews with persons who ate at the Country Cottage to determine the possible association of illness to specific food items. This analysis could take several weeks,” the OSDH said. E coli O111 is a fairly unusual strain, far less common than O157:H7, the type identified in most E coli outbreaks, but it causes a similar illness. Oklahoma officials believe the cases there represent the largest O111 outbreak reported in the United States to date. Sep 16 OSDH update Last week a state official said investigators were considering the possibility that the restaurant had an infected employee who handled many different foods, since the investigation hadn’t pointed to any specific foods.
In 2014 alone, over 1200 rhinos were killed for material. That’s a snapshot of a poaching crisis that has decimated both rhino and elephant herds across sub-Saharan Africa. So far, the response from most countries has been to beef up security in game parks, adopt more aggressive tactics in dealing with poachers, and in the case of countries like Kenya to burn ivory stockpiles.All of these approaches, however, deal with poaching and wildlife conservation as a pure criminal problem. Is it time to think about this differently and look for market based solutions?
