HIDR Tuberculosis patients flee hospital

From BBC:

Twenty-three patients with incurable, highly infectious and drug-resistant tuberculosis have escaped from a South African hospital, local media report.

A total of 49 patients have absconded from Jose Pearson hospital near Port Elizabeth this week, officials said.

Although 26 have since returned to the wards, police are now primed to join door-to-door searches for the rest.

The patients, some of whom have been in hospital for 18 months, were said to want to spend Christmas with family.

But health officials said the patients posed a risk to public health and needed to return to hospital immediately.

“I think that those who returned are aware that they are putting themselves and their families at risk,” hospital spokesman Siyanda Manana told the South African Press Association.

“If they [the others] do not return immediately, department officials will be accompanied by members of the South African Police Service in a door-to-door search.”

Widespread

Correspondents say South Africa is battling the spread of virulent forms of TB which are especially dangerous for those infected with HIV, the virus which can lead to Aids.

Kucinich loses younger brother

The younger brother of Congressman Dennis Kucinich of Ohio died today.

CLEVELANDPerry Kucinich, brother of U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich, was found dead Wednesday morning at his east-side home.

Perry Kucinich was found face down by another brother, Larry Kucinich, at about 9 a.m. Larry Kucinich had taken his brother shopping Tuesday and then took him home but couldn’t get an answer when he tried calling him Wednesday, said Powell Caesar, spokesman for the coroner.Perry Kucinich was an artist and some of his works have been on display at a local art gallery.”He was an admirer of the works of Klee and Picasso, and the style and structure of his artwork derived from their influences,” Kucinich said. “He was a genius. He had extraordinary insights. Although he struggled with mental illness, with the help of his family and friends, he was able to lead a productive life.”The county coroner said that an autopsy is set to be performed to determine the exact cause of death. There were no signs of foul play.

Our thoughts and prayers go out for the Kucinich family.
