Ebola Death Toll Rises to at Least 2,296 - WHO

GENEVA (Reuters) - The death toll from the worstEbolaoutbreak in history has jumped by almost 200 in a single day to at least 2,296 and is already likely to be higher than that, the World Health Organization said on Tuesday.

The WHO said it had recorded 4,293 cases in five West African countries as of Sept. 6, a day after its previous update. But it still did not have new figures for Liberia, the worst-affected country, suggesting the true toll is already much higher.

The WHO has said it expects thousands of new cases in Liberia in the next three weeks.

New campaign says GP not ED

A new marketing campaign aims to improve Emergency Department wait times by encouraging patients to visit their GP, instead of hospital Emergency Departments.

Health Minister Lawrence Springborg said Queensland Health had begun planning the campaign to reduce the thousands of unnecessary ED presentations to Queensland hospitals every year.
“We have a strong commitment to improving frontline health services and ensuring that Queenslanders get the very best of care,” Mr Springborg said.

Dear friends,

Watch and share our 3 short new videos that show why we urgently need all clinical trials registered and results reported.Withholding results costs lives - The results of a 1980s clinical trial on heart drug Lorcainide were never published. Doctors didn’t know that more people died in the trial who were given Lorcainide than who were taking the placebo. It has been estimated that over 100,000 people died avoidably because they were prescribed drugs in the same class.
