The most likely cause of vCJD is exposure to the BSE agent through consumption of food from bovine origin most plausibly contaminated by infected bovine brain or other central nervous system tissue. Only four cases of vCJD infection have been associated with blood transfusion: three of these cases developed symptoms of vCJD several years after transfusion, and one died from unrelated causes before developing symptoms of vCJD, but was shown to be infected with vCJD. Measures taken to protect public health Due to the strong evidence of a link between vCJD and BSE, the UK government made BSE a notifiable disease in 1988. Since 1994, the European Union has progressively implemented control measures that have contained BSE. The main measures are detailed in the information sheet on Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy. Since 1999, the United Kingdom has no longer sourced plasma from its inhabitants, and as a further precautionary measure against the occurrence of vCJD, has instituted leukocyte depletion (removal of white blood cells) from blood transfusions. Some countries have prohibited donations of blood from persons who have resided in countries with higher risk of BSE. WHO response WHO has worked on: convening scientific consultations on issues related to animal and human TSEs (these meetings have made recommendations aimed at protecting human and animal health); assisting with global surveillance of CJD and its variants, by holding training courses worldwide, particularly in developing countries, to help countries establish national surveillance of CJD and its variants; convening the Technical Consultation on BSE: Public Health, Animal Health and Trade, publishing the WHO manual for surveillance of human transmissible spongiform encephalopathies, including variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. WHO recommendations To protect human health, WHO has several recommendations. No tissue that is likely to contain the BSE agent, nor part or product of any animal which has shown signs of a TSE should enter the (human or animal) food chain. All countries should ban the use of ruminant tissues in ruminant feed. The pharmaceutical industry should avoid the use of bovine materials and materials from other animal species in which TSEs naturally occur. If their use is absolutely necessary, these materials should be obtained from countries which have a surveillance system for BSE in place and which reports zero cases of BSE. The Guidelines on tissue infectivity distribution in transmissible spongiform encephalopathies in 2006 provide information and assist national regulatory authorities in conducting risk assessments of vCJD transmission.

United Kingdom Tourism Report Q4 2013 – New Study Released

The UK is also due to host two major international sporting events over the coming years – the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and the 2015 Rugby World Cup (at various locations around the country). These events are likely to result in large numbers of participants and spectators travelling to the United Kingdom. An overview of the UK’s top 10 tourism markets highlights the fact that Europe remains the UK’s main source of tourism, despite the continuing economic uncertainty. However we are calculating a slight decline on our previous Q4 forecast as the continuing economic downturn in much of Europe over this period is likely to act as a deterrent for potential tourists. However the other regions are forecast to see a growth in arrivals over 2013 and we have increased our forecasts for inbound tourists from these regions. After a period of significant infrastructure development and hotel-building activity in the run-up to the 2012 Olympic Games, the scene may now be set for more modest overall growth in the UK’s hotel industry. Recent developments include: – Accor is launching a new brand in the UK, the Adiago aparthotels, the first of which opened in Liverpool in March 2013. – The group also re-launched their Mercure hotel in London in June 2013, following an extensive redesign of the hotel. It is the flagship UK hotel in a brand Accor is hoping to double the size of by 2016. – Over the past quarter ICHG has signed three new hotels to its Holiday Inn brand. UK construction company Balfour Beatty secured a contract worth GBP121mn (US$181.5mn) to build a hotel, leisure and apartment complex for Grove Developments in North Greenwich Peninsula in London.
