H1N1 cases in health workers show need for protection

first_imgJun 18, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – An analysis of novel H1N1 influenza cases in healthcare workers in the early weeks of the epidemic shows that half of them were probably infected on the job, and most of those weren’t using respiratory protection, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said today.Among 26 cases for which detailed information was available, 13 of the healthcare personnel (HCP) were believed to have been infected in a healthcare setting, the CDC said. Only three of the infected workers reported using a surgical mask or an N-95 respirator.The findings suggest that health workers are being infected both at work and in the community and that healthcare facilities need to reinforce messages about current infection control recommendations, the CDC said in the Jun 19 issue of Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.Part of the problem is that potentially infectious patients aren’t always being identified as soon as they arrive at a clinical or hospital, so medical workers are not promptly alerted about the need to don protective garb, CDC officials said at a news briefing today.Exposure factorsThe CDC had received reports of 48 novel flu infections in HCP by May 13, and 26 of those included detailed information about possible exposures to the virus. Two of the 26 workers were hospitalized, but none required intensive care, and all recovered.Six of the 26 workers reported caring for a patient with H1N1 flu, and another six cared for a patient with a respiratory illness, the CDC said. Six workers reported close contact with someone who had the virus or a respiratory illness, and four had traveled recently to Mexico.Of the 13 personnel judged likely to have been infected at work, 12 probably or possibly caught the virus from a patient, and the other person probably was infected by another healthcare worker, the CDC reported.As for the other 13 personnel, 11 were believed to have been infected outside work, and the other two had no reported exposures either on or off the job.Among the 12 people believed to have been infected by patients, 11 gave information on their use of personal protective equipment (PPE) while working. Only three of these reported always using a surgical mask or an N-95 respirator. Five reported always wearing gloves, but none reported consistent use of eye protection. Nor did any worker report always using gloves, gown, and a mask or respirator.However, the findings do not prove that the workers were infected because they didn’t use PPE, the report states.Infection control recommendationsBecause of the lack of a vaccine and limited data on the novel virus’s behavior, the CDC currently recommends that at-risk HCP use N-95 respirators, eye protection, and contact precautions, in addition to the usual infection control precautions for seasonal flu, the report notes. The latter include vaccination, isolation of patients in single rooms, and standard and droplet precautions.Among the barriers to the use of proper infection control precautions, the CDC says, is failure to recognize patients and activities that warrant such precautions. Dr. Michael Bell commented at today’s news briefing. He is associate director for infection control in the CDC’s Divisionof Healthcare and Quality Promotion, National Center for Preparedness, Detection, and Control of Infectious Diseases.”Probably the single most important thing is that infectious patients be identified at the front door,” whether in a hospital or an outpatient clinic, Bell said.He added later, “One of the patterns we’re beginning to see is that healthcare facilities are not promptly identifying potentially infectious patients.” In normal circumstances, with no indication that PPE is needed, “there’s no way to expect those personnel to do this consistently. That identification of a potentially infectious patient’s first step is absolutely essential for this to work.”The number of novel flu infections in people involved in healthcare has grown to 81 since May 13, Bell reported. He said the CDC does not have detailed information on the additional cases, but there are no signs of a “sudden increase or an alarming change in pattern.””We are not seeing anything to indicate that HCP are overly represented among cases in this country,” he added.The MMWR article says that about 4% of confirmed and probable H1N1 cases in adults up to May 13 were in HCP, whereas about 9% of working adults in the United States work in healthcare.Disease severity in young peopleIn other comments at today’s briefing, Dr. Daniel Jernigan, deputy director of the CDC’s Influenza Division, said the robust immune response of young people may have something to do with the finding that the virus is hitting younger people harder than older groups. Last week Dr. Margaret Chan, head of the World Health Organization, said most of the severe and fatal cases are occurring in people between 30 and 50.In response to a question, Jernigan noted that older people may have some protection from the virus because of previous exposures to other H1N1 viruses, distant relatives of the new strain.”In terms of the younger individuals, it may be that the severity of the disease is due to the robust immune response of younger individuals,” he added. “But at this point we don’t have any specific information to tease that out. But I would say that the serology supports the notion that there may be protection among older individuals, and the severity of the disease, notably in Mexico City, suggests that the robust immune response in the younger may be responsible for the severity.”On another topic, Jernigan said it’s too early to tell whether the novel H1N1 viruses will crowd out seasonal flu viruses and become predominant in the southern hemisphere’s current flu season. He said the data from some areas suggest that the novel virus is becoming dominant, but some laboratories are testing only for that strain, so the true picture isn’t clear. In some other areas where surveillance has been done for a long time, authorities are finding that the novel virus is predominant but that seasonal strains are also circulating, he said.”Right now we don’t have enough information to say that there is a replacement occurring, and at this point we’re expecting that there’ll be multiple subtypes circulating this fall,” he said.See also: Transcripts of CDC press briefings on novel H1N1 fluhttp://www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu/press/last_img read more

How to improve the catering service in the household?

first_imgThere are several answers to this question. On the contrary, solutions are offered from certain business segments such as digital marketing, swimming pools and pool equipment, mattresses, washing machines…The right way to achieve continuous growth in quality while monitoring trends in tourism is to connect the basic elements of marketing: market research, defining demand profiles, creating supply according to known demand, education, specialization, investing, highlighting, branding, promotional channels, feedback. guests and the constant repetition of this cycle.PersistenceHe asked Ivo John, “Why is the grass in England greener, denser, more beautiful?” John says, “Do you water the grass every day? Says Ive: Yes. Do you mow it every week? Says Ive: Yes. Do you fertilize it in the fall and spring? Says Ive: Yes, and that! John: And you’ve been doing it all for 500 years? Ivan: eh… “For almost 10 years now, the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County has started to apply the right way to improve the catering service in the household. This is what it looks like:Family accommodation in the Kvarner area makes up almost 48% of the total accommodation capacity of the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, which indicates the importance of better market positioning of family accommodation. Therefore, the County of Primorje-Gorski Kotar, in cooperation with the Kvarner Tourist Board and local tourist boards from the Kvarner area, launched a project in 2010 to award the quality label “Kvarner Family” with the aim of branding accommodation in rooms, apartments, holiday homes and camps. in the household in the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County.It is a system of standards and criteria that aims to create a new basis for connecting the holders of family accommodation in the entire Primorje-Gorski Kotar County. The basic criteria for awarding the project label are: landscaping, pleasantly equipped interior, recognizability of the building, but also respect for tradition, loyalty of guests and the experience of home and family atmosphere. This aims to make the facilities marked “Kvarner Family” marketable, and the quality level is guaranteed by the Kvarner Tourist Board and local tourist boards by publishing them in a special web catalog on the website and in promotional materials.Agencies also joined the project, sub-brands were createdIn 2013, the Kvarner Tourist Board, in cooperation with local tourist boards, invited travel agencies from the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County to join the “Kvarner Family” project by obtaining the “Kvarner Family Agency” quality label.Further sub-brands of the “Kvarner Family” Quality label have also been developed:• Pet Friendly – intended for tourists with pets (started in 2014)• BikeFriendly – intended for cyclo tourists (started in 2014)• HikeFriendly – intended for hiking tourists (started in 2014).The number of people interested in applying new knowledge is constantly growingDomestic catering service providers have shown great interest in joining the project, so that currently the quality label is carried by accommodation facilities owned by 489 household accommodation providers from the Kvarner area, of which 59 Pet Friendly, 24 Bike Friendly and 23 Hike Friendly renters and 28 Kvarner Family agency of which 4 Dog Friendly agencies. Also partners in the project in the Pet friendly subbrand are the Veterinary Station Rijeka with its network of clinics and pet stores and the hotel and beach for dogs Monty s, as well as Sparkly pet – beauty salon pets. The web portal www.kvarnerfamily.hr is updated and adapted to trends, and the Facebook pages Kvarner Family and the fan group Pet friendly are also active. In addition to the Kvarner Family brochure, the brochure “Family package” with vouchers was printed, as part of which the action involved many businesses that have granted discounts on their services.Investment incentiveBased on inquiries from family accommodation entities at workshops held on the provision of catering services in the household and at the suggestion of the Commission for the implementation of the project “Kvarner Family”, a credit program “Kvarner Family” was developed and launched in December 2015. accommodation in facilities where catering services of household accommodation are provided.The program is implemented in cooperation with the following banks: HRVATSKA POŠTANSKA BANKA dd, ERSTE & STEIERMÄRKISCHE BANK dd and ZAGREBAČKA BANKA ddLending conditionsBeneficiaries of loans under this Program may be natural persons – providers of catering services in the household registered in the Republic of Croatia (hereinafter: Renters) in accordance with the Law on Catering and the Ordinance on classification and categorization of facilities providing catering services in the household, which have a Decision The state administration office responsible for issuing the Decision approving the provision of catering services in the household and that the intended funds in the amount of 100% intend to invest in their own accommodation facilities in the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County.Funds are approved exclusively for:• meeting the conditions for providing catering services in the household according to the criteria of the “Kvarner Family” quality label system and the corresponding additional quality labels (“Pet Friendly”, “Bike Friendly”, “Hike Friendly” and other special offer standards implemented by the Kvarner Tourist Board);• arrangement, modernization (raising the quality of the facility) or expansion of facilities whose implementation does not violate the traditional values ​​of coastal or Gorski Kotar indigenous construction;• procurement of equipment or individual parts of equipment.The amount of credit funds ranges from HRK 20.000,00 to HRK 100.000,00.

Crowds on all roads, and HGSS has an important message

first_imgSmart enough. And that this is not just a joke of the HGSS, but of important messages, shows the traffic accident that happened a few days ago on the Adriatic Highway.Source: Facebook HGSS From week to week, HAK warns of huge traffic jams on our roads, of course it is the “peak” of the season and traffic jams (although a mild word for the current situation on our roads) on our roads to and from the sea are something that has already become part part of the adventure. And the journey from point A to point B is part of the annual, right?Unfortunately, due to long-term growth based only on the growth of accommodation capacities, and not on the development of tourist destinations, from year to year we have increasing infrastructure problems in our tourist destinations, including our roads that simply cannot accommodate so many vehicles.The new mainland-Ciovo bridge doesn’t help either, because normally it’s just a short section with two lanes, and traffic jams happen before and after. All this is a consequence because we do not deal with tourism strategically and sustainably. How to expect the growth of arrivals and overnight stays, and at the same time we have not provided the prerequisites for the same, except for the accommodated capacity. But that is a broader topic for another discussion.But as we have a hundred people, a hundred surprises, so in abnormal situations, abnormal things happen, and so on our roads. A team from the Croatian Mountain Rescue Service (HGSS) warned of an abnormal thing in their already legendary way. And this is an opportunity to remind ourselves of some of the legendary messages and warnings for HGSS tourists.last_img read more

Minister Cappelli: The sojourn tax is not a tax, nor a parafiscal levy

first_imgAfter the entire tourist industry, from the hosts in the family accommodation and hoteliers, loudly rebelled against raising the sojourn tax, the Ministry of Tourism and the Croatian Tourist Board also reacted.MINT and CNTB: Tourist tax funds important revenue of the CNTB for the promotion of CroatiaThe funds collected by the sojourn tax are an important income of the Croatian Tourist Board aimed, among other things, at financing promotional activities, and the proposal of new changes in the sojourn tax is being worked on by the Croatian Ministry of Tourism, as a result of coordination and agreement with all stakeholders. changing market challenges with the main goal – strengthening the competitive position of our country on the world tourist map, point out the MINT.The Minister of Tourism of the Republic of Croatia, Gari Cappelli, points out that the sojourn tax is not a tax or parafiscal levy and the funds are not transferred to the state treasury, but to revenues that are returned directly to destinations through redistribution, cities, counties, CNTB and the Red Cross. “The sojourn tax is stated on a separate invoice and can in no way be part of the price of our accommodation offer. The amounts have not changed since 2005, when it was calculated at the level of 35 days of occupancy and the average price of 100 kuna in private accommodation. When you look at how many millions of people have searched our country these days thanks to the strong promotion for the historic success of our footballers at the World Cup, it is invaluable. I am sure that all our dear guests would be happy to contribute to the beauty, infrastructure, offer and promotion of destinations in the Republic of Croatia that they have chosen as their vacation spot.”, commented the Minister of Tourism of the Republic of Croatia and the President of the Croatian Tourist Board Gari Cappelli. Director of the Croatian Tourist Board Kristjan Staničić points out that the funds collected by the sojourn tax significantly improve the functioning of the entire system and enable the implementation of key legal tasks such as promotion, development of tourist offer, encouraging events in the destination and strengthening competencies and professionalization of employees. “We know that the sojourn tax is the most significant income of the tourist board system, and it is the amount paid by the guest and which, for example, through the model of joint advertising, event support, offer improvement and more is largely returned to the system. The competition does not stand still. More money from the sojourn tax means more money to promote the country. This would really help us to continue to follow in the promotional and marketing sense, but also to impose trends in order to strengthen the recognition of Croatia as a tourist destination on the international market.”, concluded the director of the CNTB, Kristjan Staničić.NEW REGULATION ON THE AMOUNT OF RESIDENCE TAXThe new Decree on the amount of sojourn tax, which should enter into force on January 1, 2019, determines the amount of sojourn tax paid by persons who spend the night in a catering facility from the group Camps, the lump sum of sojourn tax paid by citizens providing catering services in household and peasant household, the amount of the lump sum of the sojourn tax paid by the owner of the holiday home or apartment for himself and members of the immediate family (“weekenders”) and the lump sum of the sojourn tax paid by the owners or users of the vessel for themselves and for all persons vessel (sailors). The decree proposes to increase the amount of the sojourn tax for persons who use the overnight service in accommodation facilities where the sojourn tax is paid per night (except campsites) by 25% more compared to 2018. Therefore, the amount of this tax in a tourist place of class A in the main summer part of the season in hotels and similar accommodation would increase from 8 to 10 kuna. The regulation also proposes to increase the amount of the sojourn tax for persons providing catering services for accommodation in the household and on the family farm by 15% – it has not changed since 2005.These changes will apply only to A class and apply only in the heart of the tourist year, point out the MINT, adding that the amount of sojourn tax is not determined by location but by seasonal periods and the class of the tourist place. The amount of the sojourn tax does not change, ie it remains at the same level as in 2018 for people who spend the night in a catering facility from the group Camps (types of camps and camping rest areas), and for the owner of a holiday home and apartment and members of his immediate family who pay the sojourn tax in an annual lump sum. For household camps, the amount of the sojourn tax prescribed for private renters applies.RELATED NEWS:CROATIAN TOURIST INDUSTRY AGAINST RAISING RESIDENCE TAX BEFORE RESTRUCTURING THE TOURIST BOARD SYSTEMANNOUNCEMENT OF INCREASE IN RESIDENCE TAX AND TAX CAUSED AN AVAILABLE OF DISSATISFACTIONlast_img read more

The Run Croatia platform is expanding day by day

first_imgThe initiative to join the project came from Berislav Sokač and his team from the Run Croatia project. The goal is to include students in as many high standard races as possible, but also to help in their organization.Less than two months have passed since Croatia received the first Run friendly hotel in Europe, and now there are new hotels on the Run Croatia list that can boast a special offer for millions of runners around the world. Namely, after the LifeClass Terme Sveti Martin, the first hotel in Zagreb, the Westin Zagreb hotel and the Falkensteiner park hotel Punat, joined the Run friendly hotel in Croatia. More importantly, the list of Run friendly hotels will soon increase by a couple of times.Positive energy, passion, vision and a great tourist story – these are the main elements of the team behind the Run Croatia concept, ie the Eco system that is expanding from month to month in Lijepa naša and includes more and more partners building a special and unique platform for runners. The essence of the Run friendly Eco system, ie the entire platform raised by the Run Croatia team with its partners, is that the system starts working for itself. To achieve this, good content and diverse partners are needed who offer a wide range of quality services and products for a specific target group, in this case for runners, said Berislav Sokač from Run Croatia recently in an interview for HrTurizam.hr.Since Croatia is a tourist country, the whole story includes various partners, from Run friendly hotels, health clinics, restaurants, gluten free and organic food producers to banking through eWallet or cashless payment through the blockchain 2.0 loyalty program.Edward Bernays College of Communication Management, Croatia airlines and Duh u Boci distillery – new partners of the Run Croatia platformIn the entire Run Croatia platform, which is expanding day by day, there is already the Bagatin Clinic, the mentioned hotels, Motion Travel – the first travel agency specializing in runners, family farms, the Zdravi Pinklec platform, and recently Edward Bernays Visoka school for communication management and distillery Duh in Boca.”We signed a Contract with the first Run Friendly Academic Institution. Among other things, students will have fieldwork volunteering in races to have a socially responsible activity, and will have a recommendation for employment in Run Friendly companies. ” Sokač points out, and adds that cooperation has also been agreed with the Duh u Boci Distillery, which has become the first Run Friendly Distillery. Old Pilots Gin is the first Croatian craft gin made exclusively from plants harvested in Croatia. “It is the connection with the Spirit in the Run Croatia bottle that wants to show that it is more than running, because running is a symbol of running”Emphasizes Sokač.Also, cooperation has already been established with various family farms that offer gluten free and organically grown food, as well as two cherry and chokeberry plantations. The whole eco system was joined by the Zdravi Pinklec platform, which delivers healthy, home-made, organically grown food, and to make the whole story self-sustainable, these family farms are directly connected to Run friendly hotels, where they distribute.In cooperation with Croatia Airlines, as the first airline in the world with an offer for runners, it will initially offer air tickets at a 20% discount on the routes they fly to encourage domestic runners to experience European races and foreign runners to come in large numbers. run to them. “ The idea is that together with Croatia Airlines we are working on the promotion of the country as a country moving away from car destinations. Our target group is 55 million active people that we want to bring in a faster and more comfortable way. I am already positive with the development of the project, but I will be completely satisfied when we paint at least one Croatia Airlines plane with the slogan: Fly to Run Croatia with Croatia Airlines. In my opinion it is the only real call to action for the development of our tourism and economy. The message is carried by two positive verbs, fly and run. Run has meaning and initiation, so even in a business context it is stimulating. Imagine using that message wisely in marketing and having a plane connect markets where 25% of the population runs on the Run?”Says Sokač.But this story is certainly not the end, because the plan is to include other health institutions, banks through the blockchain 2.0 loyalty program and many other services and products related to runners, because running is not just running, but a way of life. Win – Win and a unique example in Croatia, if not in the world. An example that, I am sure, in a couple of years will be presented at the UNWTO platform for sustainable tourism development and become one of the top Croatian export products.”Run Croatia platform open to all who with their positive energy want to start a better society as a whole and these economic processes”Concludes Sokač. Join the Run Croatia eco system and be part of a positive change. This is how strategic and sustainable tourism is developed.From one small but strong idea, Run Croatia has grown into a big project – a platform for the development and promotion of the entire destination (Croatia) through the concept of running or Run friendly destination. It has grown into a project of strategic importance for our entire tourism, at least it should have such a status. If you think I’m exaggerating, just wake up a little awake and imagine the possible future development and implications of this whole story.The whole concept includes destinations, better tourist spending and better guests, sports, healthy lifestyle, health clinics, gastronomy, family farms, healthy food, air transport, education, specialized travel agency, hotels, banks, clothing and footwear… continue series .In the end, let me conclude, such projects, heroes and ambassadors of Croatian tourism are our future and the direction of development of our tourism. This is how tourism develops strategically and sustainably, this is how it develops before and after the season, because runners avoid the “peak” of the season due to crowds and crowds, this is how tourism develops, and not that tourism continues to develop by inertia.Quality development is not accidental.It is the fruit of strategic thinking, synergy, creativity and proactivity of each individual, company, destination, State.It’s all up to us, whether we want quality growth and development or growth by inertia and the status quo. Individuals such as the team behind the Run Croatia project are struggling in the market and developing day by day, without synergy with tourism institutions, and the question is whether they will continue their “happiness” in Croatia or find it in other environments where their ideas, passion and energy to be recognized.last_img read more

The most widely read Croatian portal in English, Total Croatia News, allows tourists to explore our beautiful country from the comfort of their home and plan in advance which locations they will visit soon, thus joining tourist destinations around the world devising new business strategies facing the new reality of coronavirus. The owner of the portal, whose texts are read by more than three million users a year, believes that there is no time to lose. “Local tourist boards know their destinations best and have promotional materials available, and with the support of Total Croatia News, Croatian destinations will tour the world. Little by little, I think we could do a lot together for this, as yet uncertain, tourist season“, Says Bradbury. Photo: Vivian Grisogono Anyone interested can send their materials by e-mail paul@total-croatia-news.com, called Virtual Croatia and add the name of the destination (for example Virtual Croatia Split) with links to all available online materials. “Nikad nije bilo boljeg vremena za strateško promoviranje turizma, jer dvije su stvari sigurne – ljudi i dalje imaju očajničku želju za putovanjem (a što je bolje od hrvatske plaže jednom kad sve ovo završi, koja je k tomu jako blizu za sve one koji u Hrvatsku mogu doći automobilima?) i upravo sada imaju jako puno vremena dobro istražiti kamo žele pobjeći i putovati čim im se ukaže prva prilika. A ta je kombinacija izuzetno dobra za promociju turizma. Trenutačno imamo prilike vidjeti mnoge turističke kampanje diljem svijeta, koje prikazuju primamljive destinacije uz poruke poput Ostanite kod kuće, putujte kasnije. Takve su poruke sasvim razumne i dobrodošle, no ne daju onaj dodatni impuls koji stvara stvarnu želju za putovanjem” says Bradbury.center_img Paul Bradbury invites all local tourist boards to join him and send him all the online promotional materials and stories about their destinations, and he will publish them completely free of charge on his portal and so present the best of our country to tourists around the world. These stories can then be shared through all the channels available to tourist boards. The campaign is designed as a series of articles on destinations throughout Croatia, which will provide future tourists with more information about a particular location, but also the opportunity to virtually explore and fall in love with it, until they can travel again. Two articles have already been published, promoting virtual tours and visit planning Zagreb https://bit.ly/VirtualZagreb i Hvar https://bit.ly/VirtualHvar.
