What you can do to prevent meningitis

The death of a four-year-old boy and the hospitalisation of a three-week-old baby from meningitis sparked concern among many. Is there any cause for alarm, asks Joanne Cocks. The answer, quite simply is no. Doctors and the health authorities have said that the two cases are in no way connected or related even if the public assumed there might be an outbreak only because two cases were reported at about the same time. Read: Tragedy strikes as child dies of meningitis Paediatric cardiologist Victor Grech, a keen promoter of vaccination programmes, encouraged parents to ensure they follow vaccination advice. Bacterial meningitis is serious, and can be fatal without prompt antibiotic treatment, which if delayed increases the risk of permanent brain damage or death. Prof. Grech explained that the common types of meningitis are viral and bacterial. Put simply, viral meningitis usually gives fever, a headache, photophobia (discomfort or pain to the eyes due to light exposure) and neck stiffness such that the individual is unable to bend the neck forward so the chin can come close to the chest. No treatment is usually necessary except supportive: treating the pain and drinking lots of...

Study confirms need for Emission Control Area to reduce pollution from shipping

The establishment of an Emission Control Area in the Mediterranean would bring enormous air quality benefits, save 6,000 lives and reduce the healthcare bill of several countries, BirdLife Malta said on Thursday. It was reacting to a French report on air pollution from shipping. The report was compiled by Ineris, the French national institute for industrial environment and risks.   The impact assessment, which started in 2017, investigated potential air quality improvements in the region following a switch to better grade marine fuels. The report found that particulate matter (PM) can be reduced by up to 20% and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) levels by up to 76%, leading to up to €14 billion in reduced health costs and potentially saving more than 6,000 lives every year in the region. Air pollution from shipping can represent up to 40% of all Mediterranean coastal city air pollution. It represents a significant threat for human health, the environment and climate. "The main reason for this pollution is the use of heavy fuel oil, highly charged in sulphur that emits black carbon, heavy metals, fine particulates and sulphur dioxide. As pollutants are carried over long distances, it is not...

PA renews permit for Mistra Ridge mega-project, despite environmental concerns

Updated Thursday with PA decision, vote - The Planning Authority on Thursday approved the renewal of a permit for a massive residential development rising to 12 storeys on the site of the former Mistra Village. The project includes a complex of 744 residential units in four blocks at the top of Xemxija Hill, along with shops, restaurants, offices, a spa, pool and clubhouse as well as more than 1,600 parking spaces. A permit for the development was issued in 2013 but no development was ever carried out and developers Gemxija Crown Ltd applied last July to renew the permit before the expiry of its five-year validity period. No changes have been proposed to the approved plans and the PA case officer has recommended the renewal application for approval. Nevertheless, neighbours raised concerns in objections to the PA over the height of the development, which they said would dwarf its surroundings.  They also complained about the overall scale, which is expected to negatively impact the transport network of the area and increase pollution. The original permit was issued prior to the introduction of the floor area ratio policy for high-rise buildings in 2014, under which the project...
