Jan 26, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – The latest World Health Organization (WHO) fact sheet on avian influenza shows that the complex mysteries of the H5N1 virus, while compelling, make it difficult to anticipate what the virus will do next.On one hand, the virus has spread aggressively along migratory bird routes in the last several months, sparking poultry outbreaks and culls in places such as Russia, Romania, and Turkey. Its spread in Turkey led to a fast-developing human outbreak, which is now up to 21 cases with four deaths, but appears to be ebbing, WHO officials have said.On the other hand, WHO says in its Jan 20 publication, “the virus does not easily cross from birds to infect humans.” Tens of millions of poultry have been infected in the past 2 years, yet “fewer than 200 human cases have been laboratory confirmed.”The lengthy overview discusses current knowledge of H5N1 disease in birds, the role of migratory birds in spreading the virus, and the disease in humans. It identifies a number of areas of concern and gaps in knowledge, including:Containing poultry outbreaks – WHO suggests culling as the first line of defense, but adds that vaccinating poultry is a “supplementary emergency measure, providing quality-assured vaccines are used and World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) recommendations are strictly followed.”The role of poverty – WHO describes how poverty can hamper efforts to control H5N1, especially when the virus infects backyard flocks. “In situations where a prime source of food and income cannot be wasted, households frequently consume poultry when deaths or signs of illness appear in flocks,” the report says. Such deaths in flocks are common for other reasons, so H5N1 infections may not be suspected. “The frequent absence of compensation to farmers for destroyed birds further works against the spontaneous reporting of outbreaks and may encourage owners to hide their birds during culling operations.”Migratory birds – Evidence is growing that wild birds are carrying the lethal form of H5N1 long distances and spreading it to poultry flocks along their flight paths. Among the details supporting the theory: viruses from Turkey’s first two human infections were nearly identical to viruses found in birds around Qinghai Lake in China, site of a massive migratory bird die-off that began in late April of 2005.Who is at risk for infection – Most human cases have occurred in households that kept small poultry flocks. For unknown reasons, very few cases have been found in presumed high-risk groups, such as workers in live-poultry markets, poultry cullers, veterinarians, and health workers caring for patients without wearing adequate protective equipment.Differences between human H5N1 cases and ordinary influenza – The incubation period in H5N1 infections may be longer, and watery diarrhea without blood appears more often in H5N1 cases in people. Many patients also have lower respiratory tract symptoms by the time they first seek treatment. In addition, clinical deterioration is rapid in H5N1 cases.Treatment with antiviral drugs – WHO is working on an “urgent review” of recommendations on the use of oseltamivir (Tamiflu) and other antivirals in H5N1 cases. Clinicians should consider increasing the dosage and duration of oseltamivir treatment beyond the standard 150 mg per day for 5 days in severe cases, the report says.This flu virus, WHO says, is of the most pressing interest to human health for two reasons: it has caused the most human cases of severe disease of any avian virus, and it could evolve to allow easy spread among people.”H5N1 avian influenza in humans is still a rare disease, but a severe one that must be closely watched and studied, particularly because of the potential this virus [has] to evolve in ways that could start a pandemic,” the report concludes.See alsoWHO fact sheet on avian fluhttp://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/avian_influenza/en/
According to the Novi List, the whole story is stuck on urban plans that stipulate that the project should plan 75 percent of hotel rooms in the area, which investors did not fit into the vision. The implementation of this Decision in relation to the previous amount of tax is estimated to lead to an increase in income from taxes and surtaxes on income of HRK 151.537, point out the city of Opatija. In recent days, there has been news in the media that the City of Opatija has rejected an investment worth 50 million euros by the Maltese company AX Holding, which intended to build a complex for renting accommodation units for the elderly in Ičići, ie a five-star aparthotel and 200 apartments. . “Much has been written lately about the City of Opatija refusing a “valuable” investment of 50 million Euros for an aparthotel in Ičići, on the plateau of the former hospital. One would say at first, so what is it to these people to refuse a commendable investment. In that area, the urban plan voted in the City Council envisages the construction of a hotel. We do not want additional apartments in a valuable area. Investors from Malta have planned about 200 apartments there. This, of course, opens the possibility of selling them because Croatian regulations do not sufficiently regulate this issue. In the end, Ičići would get residential dormitories instead of hotels. We didn’t want to allow that.”Pointed out the first man of Opatija, Ivo Dujmić, and added that in the meantime, the Ičići Local Board requested that the conditions for that location be further tightened. The mayor of Opatija, Ivo Dujmić, points out that they do not want new apartments, but investments that will increase hotel accommodation units. So the whole story got its final epilogue. We should certainly praise the Decision of the City of Opatija, regardless of whether we agreed with it or not, because the strategic development of the destination is crucial, and which is so lacking in our tourism. We need to know what we want and where we see each other in x years. What is our tourist vision and thus the vision of the city’s development. Development by inertia and without strategy has just led us to a situation where the entire city infrastructure is cracking from year to year due to the growth of tourism. According to the guidelines of the GUP, we define the future development of tourist destinations, and according to the GUP, it is clearly defined that Ičići do not want the construction of new apartments, but the day-to-day development of hotel accommodation capacities. Namely, according to the Urban Plan, the construction of exclusively tourist purposes is planned in that area – ie hotels with a minimum of 75 percent of accommodation in rooms and a maximum of 25 percent of apartments, while potential investors proposed an investment of about 200 units of apartment accommodation. Photo: TZ Opatija / Marin Ćuk Vurnek The City of Opatija has made a Decision on the amount of flat tax per bed, accommodation unit in the camp and accommodation unit in the facility for Robinson accommodation. The proposal of the Decision was made after consultations of all local self-government units in Liburnia, where it was agreed that the amount of flat tax per bed will correspond to the amount of sojourn tax for 2019, ie it will amount to a maximum of 345 kuna per bed or accommodation unit. Related news: The highest amount of tax will apply as before to those settlements in the City of Opatija that are classified in A class of tourist places. However, unlike the previous situation, the settlements of Poljana and Oprić, which have so far been in the lowest class of tourist places (D), would be equated with the settlements of Veprinac, Pobri and Dobreć (classified in class C), since there are no major differences between these settlements. would justify a different tax liability. At the same time, the lowest lump sum tax per bed or accommodation unit would in future be applied to the settlement of Vela Učka, which is classified in the C class of tourist places, and this proposal seeks to encourage the development of tourism in the least developed part of Opatija. In the area of Opatija, Ičići, Ika, Veprinac, Dobreć and Pobri there are 947 tenants with 3.788 beds In the end, we should certainly praise and mention that last year an agreement was reached on the joint branding of the Opatija Riviera, so Matulji, Ičići, Mošćenička Draga, Lovran and Opatija are under one brand – the Opatija Riviera.

The second phase of the recovery of the tourist market is most directly related to the creation of basic preconditions for the smooth provision of tourist services in the broadest sense of the word, ie the reopening of borders of all European countries and the establishment of regular air, land and sea connections between European countries. . Finally, the authors conclude that the full recovery of tourism, both globally and in Croatia, will occur when there is no longer a danger of COVID-19 disease and when the global tourism market re-establishes a balance and trust between tourism supply and demand, which is a necessary prerequisite. which tourism growth and development.

The economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic will not pass as quickly and easily as it looked at the end of February this year, and tourism will be one of the segments of the global economy that will be most affected by this crisis, the authors point out. , as the pandemic has its own cycle, it can also be assumed that the recovery of the tourism economy will not happen all at once, but also gradually.
