  • Israël/Territoires palestiniens date 09/07/2014 , 13h05
  • Plusieurs centaines de roquettes ont été tirées ces derniers jours depuis Gaza vers le territoire israélien. Les tirs, qui sont intenses dans le Sud du pays, ont visé également les 8 et 9 juillet les régions de Tel-Aviv, de Jérusalem et du Sharon (au nord de Tel-Aviv jusqu'à la ville de Hadera). La grande majorité des tirs dirigés vers des zones habitées ont néanmoins été interceptés par le système anti-missiles israélien avant d'atteindre le sol. Aucune victime n'est à déplorer à ce stade.

Il se situe actuellement au nord d'Okinawa et à l'ouest de Kyushu. Il se déplace vers le nord à une vitesse de 20 km/h. Pour autant, il a perdu de sa force initiale et a été rétrogradé à "fort" : les vents moyens soufflent à 125 km/h avec des pointes à 180 km/h. Cependant, la JMA (agence météorologique japonaise) a émis une alerte exceptionnelle pour (...)

Depuis l'attaque du centre commercial de Westgate à Nairobi, le 21 septembre 2013 (près de 70 morts), plusieurs attentats récents, ayant notamment touché des quartiers populaires à Nairobi mais aussi des lieux fréquentés par les touristes, ont été rapportés. Cette violence s'est concentrée depuis juin 2014 dans la partie continentale du comté de Lamu (en zone rouge) où (...)

Flambées épidémiques

  • Maladie à virus Ebola en Afrique de l’Ouest – mise à jour date 08/07/2014 , 2h00
  • L’OMS continue à surveiller la flambée de maladie à virus Ebola en Guinée, au Libéria et en Sierra Leone. L’évolution actuelle de l’épidémie offre un tableau contrasté. En effet:

    L’OMS préconise et soutient toujours l’application de mesures en vue d’endiguer la flambée dans les trois pays.
  • Coronavirus du syndrome respiratoire du Moyen-Orient (MERS-CoV) – mise à jour date 04/07/2014 , 19h15
  • Les 30 juin et 1er juillet 2014, le point focal national pour le RSI en Arabie saoudite a notifié 3 cas supplémentaire, confirmés en laboratoire, d’infection par le coronavirus du syndrome respiratoire du Moyen-Orient (MERS-CoV) et le décès d’un cas notifié précédemment. Le patient est un garçon de 15 ans, habitant la ville de Riyad (région de Riyad), qui est tombé malade le 26 juin. Le 28 juin, il s’est rendu à l’hôpital, où des échantillons ont été prélevés en vue d’une analyse. Après confirmation en laboratoire de l’infection par le MERS-CoV, le 30 juin, le patient a été rappelé et hospitalisé. Il se trouve actuellement dans un état stable. Il s’était rendu récemment à La Mecque (région de La Mecque) et n’a pas été en contact avec un cas d’infection par le MERS-CoV déjà confirmé en laboratoire. Le patient n’a pas non plus été en contact avec des animaux et n’a pas consommé de produits provenant des chameaux dans les 14 jou...
  • Maladie à virus Ebola en Afrique de l’Ouest – mise à jour date 03/07/2014 , 2h00
  • L’évolution de la flambée de maladie à virus Ebola en Guinée, en Sierra Leone et au Libéria reste très inquiétante dans la mesure où on constate toujours des transmissions primaires et secondaires du virus en milieu urbain et en milieu rural. La tendance actuelle et les facteurs de risque potentiels concernant une propagation continue de cette épidémie ont été analysés. Les principaux facteurs qui expliquent la persistance de la propagation de la flambée de maladie à virus Ebola dans la sous-région sont les suivants :

    1. Certaines pratiques culturelles et croyances traditionnelles défavorables, sources de méfiance, d’appréhension et de réticence à adopter les mesures préventives de santé publique recommandées. Cette situation a des conséquences négatives sur la demande de soins – par exemple, les patients atteints de maladie à virus Ebola sont cachés ou pris en charge à domicile – et sur les coutumes funéraires encore pratiquées.
  • Coronavirus du syndrome respiratoire du Moyen-Orient (MERS-CoV) – mise à jour date 02/07/2014 , 19h15
  • Le 22 juin 2014, le point focal national pour le RSI en République islamique d’Iran a notifié à l’OMS un cas supplémentaire, confirmé en laboratoire, d’infection par le coronavirus du syndrome respiratoire du Moyen-Orient (MERS-CoV). Les 25 et 27 juin, le point focal national pour le RSI en Arabie saoudite a signalé que trois cas supplémentaires d’infection par le MERS-CoV avaient été diagnostiqués.

    Le patient est un homme de 44 ans, ressortissant national et agent de santé habitant dans la province de Kerman, au sud-est du pays. Des symptômes bénins d’un syndrome grippal sont apparus le 6 juin 2014. Son état s’est dégradé avec apparition d’une dyspnée et il a été admis dans un hôpital le 17 juin 2014.
  • Maladie à virus Ebola en Afrique de l’Ouest – mise à jour date 01/07/2014 , 2h00
  • Sur la base de l’analyse épidémiologique faite par l’OMS, trois facteurs majeurs contribuent à la transmission, responsable actuellement de la propagation continuelle de la maladie à virus Ebola dans la sous-région:

    L’endiguement de cette flambée passe par une riposte puissante dans les pays, en particulier dans les zones frontalières communes. L’un des éléments de cette action est l’organisation par l’OMS d’une réunion de haut niveau avec les ministres de la santé de la sous-région les 2 et 3 juillet 2014 à Accra (Ghana). Celle-ci réunira les ministres de la santé et les directeurs de la lutte contre la maladie venant de 11 pays africains (Côte d’Ivoire, Gambie, Ghana, Guinée, Guinée-Bissau, Libéria, Mali, Ouganda, République démocratique du Congo, Sénégal et Sierra Leone), ainsi que des partenaires, des personnes ayant survécu à la maladie, des représentants des compagnies aériennes et minières et les communautés de donateurs.
  • Mise à jour sur la poliomyélite en Afrique centrale date 30/06/2014 , 2h00
  • Le 17 mars 2014, l’OMS a porté le degré de risque de propagation internationale de la poliomyélite à partir d’Afrique centrale, en particulier du Cameroun, à «très élevé». Un nouveau cas d’exportation à partir de la Guinée équatoriale démontre que le risque de propagation internationale à partir de l’Afrique centrale reste très élevé .

    Le 18 juin 2014, le Brésil a signalé qu’un poliovirus sauvage de type 1 (PVS1) avait été isolé dans un échantillon d’eaux usées prélevé en mars 2014 à l’aéroport international de Viracopos dans l’État de São Paulo. Le séquençage génétique a révélé une correspondance étroite du virus avec celui qui circule en Guinée équatoriale.
  • Infection humaine par le virus de la grippe aviaire A(H7N9) – mise à jour date 27/06/2014 , 12h03
  • Les 22, 23 et 25 avril 2014, les Centres de lutte contre la maladie de Taipei (CDC) ont notifié 2 cas supplémentaires, confirmés en laboratoire, d’infection par le virus de la grippe aviaire A(H7N9). Ce sont les troisième et quatrième cas signalés par les CDC de Taipei.

    1. Enquête épidémiologique, recherche des contacts proches, observation médicale.
  • Coronavirus du syndrome respiratoire du Moyen-Orient (MERS-CoV) - Mise à jour date 26/06/2014 , 19h15
  • Les 19, 20, 22 et 23 juin 2014, le point focal pour le RSI en Arabie saoudite a notifié à l’OMS 4 cas confirmés en laboratoire supplémentaires d’infection par un coronavirus du syndrome respiratoire du Moyen-Orient (MERS-CoV).

    L’investigation et le suivi des contacts des cas confirmés en laboratoire sont en cours.
  • Coronavirus du syndrome respiratoire du Moyen-Orient (MERS-CoV) – mise à jour date 26/06/2014 , 2h01

Ces cas et ces décès ont été identifiés grâce à un examen rétrospectif des dossiers hospitaliers datant du 5 mai 2013 au 6 mai 2014.

    La majorité des cas (84) s’étaient produits après le 1er mars 2014; les autres (29) étaient intervenus entre le 5 mai 2013 et le 28 février 2014.

  • JOHANNESBOURG, 9 July 2014 (IRIN) - Le Programme alimentaire mondial (PAM) et le Haut Commissariat des Nations Unies pour les réfugiés (HCR) ont lancé un appel aux dons urgent, car le manque de fonds se traduit déjà par une réduction des rations alimentaires pour un tiers de l'ensemble des réfugiés africains. À la mi-juin, près de 800 000 personnes réfugiées dans 22 pays africains ont vu leurs rations alimentaires diminuer de plus de la moitié pour la plupart.
  • Relancer l’activité des entreprises pour soutenir le relèvement aux Philippines date 09/07/2014 , 9h07

  • NEW YORK, 7 July 2014 (IRIN) - Les préoccupations croissantes concernant le rôle du crime organisé dans l'instabilité et la pauvreté sur le continent africain ont motivé une quête d'outils analytiques et un appel à de plus amples recherches pour comprendre les forces contextuelles en jeu et savoir comment s'y attaquer au mieux.

  • La course à l’adaptation date 02/07/2014 , 9h07
  • AFAR/JOHANNESBOURG, 2 July 2014 (IRIN) - Momina Ali, une adolescente, vit dans une région parmi les plus inhospitalières et les plus chaudes de la planète – la région d'Afar, en Ethiopie, où les températures annuelles moyennes tournent autour de 35 degrés Celsius. Son village, Anderkelo, connait des pluies de plus en plus irrégulières et Momina manque une journée d'école tous les trois ou quatre jours pour aller chercher de l'eau. Il y a de fortes chances pour que les trajets effectués par Momina pour aller chercher de l'eau s'allongent, en fonction de l'impact de la hausse des températures sur les précipitations dans son village et aux alentours et donc sur l'eau potable.

  • ABIDJAN, 30 June 2014 (IRIN) - La récente confirmation par la Cour pénale internationale (CPI) du maintien des chefs d'accusation portés contre Laurent Gbagbo a ravivé les critiques concernant les méthodes du Tribunal en Côte d'Ivoire.

travel.state.gov: Travel Warnings

Travel Warnings are issued to describe long-term, protracted conditions that make a country dangerous or unstable. A Travel Warning is also issued when the U.S. Government's ability to assist American citizens is constrained due to the closure of an embassy or consulate or because of a drawdown of its staff.

  • Chad Travel Warning date 30/06/2014 , 23h23
  • The Department of State warns U.S. citizens of the risks of travel to Chad and recommends citizens avoid travel to eastern Chad and all border regions.The Embassy advises U.S. citizens to avoid public gathering spaces and locations frequented by expatriates, including markets, restaurants, bars, and places of worship. This Travel Warning replaces the Travel Warning for Chad dated April 15, 2014 to update U.S. citizens on the current security situation in Chad.The U.S. Embassy in Chad reviews all proposed travel by official U.S. government personnel and U.S. government-funded program-related travel to Chad. All U.S. government personnel require authorization to travel to areas outside of the capital, N'Djamena, and may be subject to restrictions within the capital. As security situations warrant, the U.S. Embassy may periodically impose further travel restrictions, including curfews, on U.S. government personnel. While private U.S. citizens are not required to follow these practices, th...
  • Honduras Travel Warning date 25/06/2014 , 4h03
  • The Department of State continues to warn U.S. citizens that the level of crime and violence in Honduras remains critically high. This Travel Warning supersedes the Travel Warning dated December 24, 2013, and includes additional information on crime and security in Honduras, as well as updated contact information.Tens of thousands of U.S. citizens visit Honduras each year for study, tourism, business, and volunteer work without incident. However, crime and violence are serious problems throughout the country, and the Government of Honduras lacks the resources to address these issues. Since 2010, Honduras has had the highest murder rate in the world. The Honduran Ministry of Security recorded a homicide rate of 75.6 per 100,000 people in 2013, while the National Violence Observatory, an academic research institution based out of Honduras’ National Public University, reports that the 2013 murder rate was 79 murders per 100,000 people.U.S. citizens are victims of crime at levels simila...
  • Kenya Travel Warning date 19/06/2014 , 23h24
  • The U.S. Department of State warns U.S. citizens of the risks of travel to Kenya. The U.S. Department of State warns U.S. citizens of the risks of travel to Kenya.  U.S. citizens in Kenya, and those considering travel to Kenya, should evaluate their personal security situation in light of continuing and recently heightened threats from terrorism and the high rate of violent crime in some areas.  Due to the terrorist attack on June 15 in Mpeketoni, in Lamu County, the U.S. Embassy instituted restrictions on U.S. government personnel travel to all coastal counties – Mombasa, Kwale, Kilifi, Lamu, and the coastal portion only of Tana River County. Based on the recent changes in Kenya’s security situation, the Embassy is also relocating some staff to other countries.  However, the Embassy will remain open for normal operations.  This replaces the Travel Warning of May 17, 2014, to update information about embassy staffing and current travel recommendations.The U.S. government con...
  • Iraq Travel Warning date 16/06/2014 , 23h46
  • The Department of State warns U.S. citizens against all but essential travel to Iraq.Travel within Iraq remains dangerous given the security situation. On June 16, the Department of State began relocating some staff members from the Embassy to the Consulates General in Basrah and Erbil and Iraq Support Unit in Amman.  The Embassy remains open and is operating. This Travel Warning supersedes the Travel Warning dated June 11, 2014, to update information on security incidents and to remind U.S. citizens of ongoing security concerns in Iraq, including kidnapping and terrorist violence.  The ability of the Embassy to respond to situations in which U.S. citizens face difficulty, including arrests, is extremely limited. U.S. citizens in Iraq remain at high risk for kidnapping and terrorist violence.  Methods of attack have included roadside improvised explosive devices (IEDs), including explosively formed penetrators (EFPs); magnetic IEDs placed on vehicles; human and vehicle-borne IEDs; ...
  • Republic of South Sudan Travel Warning date 12/06/2014 , 23h02
  • The U.S. Department of State warns U.S. citizens against all travel to the Republic of South Sudan. After review of our security conditions, the U.S. Department of State lifted the ordered departure status for the U.S. Embassy in Juba on June 12, 2014.  However, as a result of continued instability and a poor security situation resulting from the civil conflict which erupted in the country in December 2013, the U.S. Embassy will continue operating at reduced staffing levels for the foreseeable future.  The U.S. Embassy is therefore only able to offer very limited emergency services to U.S. citizens in the Republic of South Sudan.  This Travel Warning supersedes the Travel Warning issued on April 23, 2014.The U.S. Embassy in Nairobi [Tel.: +(254) (20) 363-6451 or +(254) (20) 363-6170, e-mail: Kenya_acs@state.gov] is available to assist U.S. citizens in South Sudan who need assistance; in an emergency, contact the U.S. Embassy in Juba (Daytime: +(211) 912-105-188; After Hours: +(21...
