THE UNEXPECTED INTENSITY OF THE RAINS CAUSE DEATHS AND DISPLACED PEOPLE IN ECUADOR AND PERU

The intense rains in recent weeks in various regions of Ecuador and Peru continue to cause damage to people, animals, crops and infrastructure. In Ecuador, during the rainy season, known as the equatorial winter, the National Institute of Meteorology and Hydrology (Inamhi) reported that in the first 13 days of March, rainfall reached the expected amount of rain for the entire month.
Inamhi believes that in various regions of the country the abnormal conditions will continue, especially in the coastal area, and hopes that storms end by April. It is estimated that currently there are more than 5,000 families affected. The situation in the north of Peru is just as bad, where incessant rains have so far caused 60 000 deaths and affected some 600,000 people, according to the National Emergency Operations Centre (COEN). In the city of Piura alone there are more than 15 thousand victims and the number of people affected has reached 50,000. Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani, Archbishop of Lima, has renewed his call for solidarity with the flood victims. (AP)

CHOLERA ALARM: "AT LEAST 300 SUSPECTED CASES IN A VAST AND IMPOVERISHED AREA" SAYS CUAMM

There are about 300 suspected cases of cholera which were recorded in February in the counties of Yirol East and Awerial (South Sudan), but the number is expected to grow because "the stories of those who arrive at the health centers from villages further away are alarming". This is what a statement sent to Agenzia Fides by Doctors with Africa Cuamm report. The data reported come from the counties of Yirol East and Awerial (ex Lakes State) where Cuamm works and coordinates the activities of 16 health centers. This is an area that has many complexities, from the difficulties to reach the communities that live scattered along the Nile and far from health centers, to the problem of offering adequate services to a population that, since December 2013, has grown under the influx of thousands of displaced.
"We have not yet an official confirmation that this is cholera, but we think it is very likely", says Giovanni Dall'Oglio, responsible for the operation of Cuamm in the area. In November 2016, the intervention of Cuamm in the former Lakes State extended to all 8 counties (including those affected by the epidemic of cholera), supporting three hospitals and 90 peripheral health centers, in favor of a population of just under 1 million inhabitants, about 250,000 children under five years of age and 58,000 pregnant women. It is a huge area which also includes the banks of the Nile and its islands, these area do not have any kind of health center. (L.M.) (From Agenzia Fides 20/02/2017)

SERIES OF EARTHQUAKES IN CENTRAL ITALY

A total of four quakes over 5.0 on the Richter Scale and more than 200 aftershocks have been recorded in central Italy. A man was found dead under the debris of a building in the town of Castel Castagna, in the province Teramo.

Among the affected municipalities are Amatrice and Montereale were hard hit by a deadly earthquake last year.

The mayor of Montereale said resignedly:

‘‘We have had this problem since 2009”, Massimiliano Georgi told. “Every time we get back on our feet, another one comes along. Unfortunately we have to live with this problem and we have to try to keep going.’‘
