ロシアで炭疽菌に2人が感染 風土病か

Two people infected with Anthrax in Russia
Both cases are reported in the Russian Republic of Chuvashia, according to the governor
Two people have contracted the dangerous bacterial infection Anthrax in Russia’s Republic of Chuvashia about 430 miles east of Moscow, it was announced on Wednesday.

The republic's Governor Oleg Nikolaev relayed the news on Telegram that the patients have been hospitalized with confirmed diagnoses and are currently receiving the necessary treatment.

Medics in charge describe the conditions of the two infected persons as “moderate,” Nikolaev said, adding that their lives were out of danger.

All persons who have had contact with the Anthrax patients have also been put under medical supervision and provided with preventive treatment, the governor also reported.

Chuvashia’s consumer-rights protection service, veterinary service and the country's Interior Ministry are working together to prevent the further spread of the infection, he wrote.

“The main goal is to ensure the safety of the residents of our region, and it’ll be achieved,” he assured Telegram readers.

The Chuvash Republic, with a population of 1.2 million, is located in the central part of European Russia on the banks of the Volga River. The distance between its regional capital Cheboksary and Moscow is around 700 kilometers (around 435 miles).

The last case of Anthrax, which is also called ‘Siberian Plague,’ was reported in Russia in June 2022 in the southern Stavropol region. The spread of the infection was swiftly contained by the local authorities.

Anthrax is a serious infectious disease caused by the Bacillus anthracis bacteria, which is sometimes encountered in rural areas and most commonly affects livestock. Humans may catch it from animals, typically from infected carcasses, as well as from wool, hair and hides.

The disease can occur in the skin, lungs, and intestines. Respiratory anthrax is the most dangerous, having a mortality rate of from 50% to 80% even with treatment, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. However, the most common is the skin form of the disease, which is lethal in less than 24% of cases without treatment.

Hundreds of thousands of people died of anthrax before 20th-century scientific advances, but the number of cases has been reduced greatly due to the use of antibiotics to treat patients, and to the vaccination of animals.

Saudi Arabia and Iran to restore ties in China-brokered deal
After seven years of tension, Riyadh and Tehran will reopen embassies and revive a 2001 security agreement
Saudi Arabia and Iran agreed on Friday to resume diplomatic ties and re-open embassies within the next two months. Relations between the Sunni kingdom and the Shia republic broke down in 2016, and the two powers have backed opposing sides in multiple regional conflicts.

The agreement came after several days of talks in Beijing. As a result of the negotiations, both countries agreed to reopen their embassies “within a period not exceeding two months,” and to commit to “non-interference” in each other’s internal affairs, according to a joint statement by Saudi, Iranian, and Chinese officials.

Additionally, Riyadh and Tehran said they would resume a security cooperation agreement signed in 2001, and would work to enhance “regional and international peace and security.”

Saudi Arabia severed diplomatic ties with Iran in 2016, after protesters stormed its diplomatic outposts there following the kingdom’s execution of a prominent Shia scholar several days earlier.

Previous rounds of talks aimed at resolving the tensions were held in Iraq and Oman in 2021 and 2022.

Aside from sectarian differences, the two regional powers have clashed on major geopolitical issues. Saudi Arabia has close economic and military relations with the US, while Iran has been heavily sanctioned by Washington over its nuclear program. Successive US administrations have threatened Tehran with diplomatic or military consequences should it develop nuclear weapons, with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin warning on Thursday that the US “will not allow Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon.”

Riyadh and Tehran support opposing sides in the civil wars in Yemen and Syria, while Iran backs the Hezbollah movement in Lebanon. Saudi Arabia, along with the US and Israel, consider Hezbollah a terrorist group.

In December, Tehran accused Saudi Arabia – along with the US and Israel – of inciting anti-government riots across Iran. Speaking to the IRNA news agency on Friday, Iranian National Security Council chief Ali Shamkhani said that he hopes the agreement will “clear misunderstandings… and lead to the development of regional stability and security.”

Beijing’s role in brokering the agreement is a major diplomatic win for China, which has also positioned itself as a potential middleman between Ukraine and Russia. However, China’s recently published twelve-point proposal was rejected by the US and NATO leadership, and was dismissed by Kiev – where officials stand by their maximalist aims of seizing the Russian territory of Crimea.

WHO chief predicts end of Covid-19 pandemic
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said he’s confident the virus will cease to be an international concern in 2023
The Covid-19 pandemic will no longer be considered a global health emergency by the end of this year, World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Tuesday.

Speaking at the University of Michigan, where he was awarded the Thomas Francis Jr. medal for his contribution to healthcare, Tedros said he’s “confident that at some point this year we will be able to say that Covid-19 is over as a public health emergency of international concern – and as a pandemic.”

The WHO chief noted that the weekly number of reported deaths is now lower than when the organization first used the word “pandemic” to describe the Covid-19 outbreak three years ago on March 11, 2020.

Tedros stressed that while the pandemic may end this year, it is important to remember that nearly seven million lives lost to the virus and learn lessons from the outbreak. “If we do not, we will repeat the cycle of panic and neglect that has been the hallmark of the global response to epidemics and pandemics for decades,” he said.

The health official outlined three main takeaways from the Covid-19 pandemic. The first was the importance of public health. Tedros called on all countries at all income levels to invest in a robust primary healthcare system, capable of detecting outbreaks at the earliest possible stages.

The second lesson, according to the health chief, was the importance of science and the dangers of politicizing issues like masks, vaccines and lockdowns, which ultimately “impeded the response to the pandemic and cost lives.”

He also pointed out that the question of how the pandemic started remains unanswered due to a “lack of cooperation from China” which, he said, has refused to be transparent in sharing data and conduct “the necessary investigations and share the results.”

Finally, the director-general said the third lesson was the importance of cooperation. Tedros stated that one of the defining characteristics of the Covid-19 pandemic was the lack of cooperation and coordination on the part of the international community due to “narrow nationalism.”

To that end, the WHO has proposed a so-called ‘pandemic accord’ – an agreement between nations to work in cooperation with each other to prepare for and respond to future epidemics and pandemics.






また、パンデミックがどのように始まったのかという疑問は、データの共有や "必要な調査と結果の共有 "という透明性を拒否している「中国の協力不足」によって、いまだに解明されていないと指摘しました。

最後に事務局長は、3つ目の教訓として、「協力の重要性」を挙げました。テドロス氏は、Covid-19のパンデミックの特徴として、"狭いナショナリズム "のために国際社会が協力と協調を欠いたことが挙げられると述べています。

Absent 'friends:' What Ukraine could learn from a new report about the US withdrawal from Afghanistan
The American exit from Kabul might be taste of the future for officials in Kiev
In the spirit of better late than never, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) has published an extensive investigation into the collapse of the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF) following the US withdrawal from Kabul in August 2021. The report not only offers, at-times shocking, detail on the level of Washington’s betrayal, but important lessons for America’s international allies today.

If only you knew how bad things really are

The ANDSF’s collapse was quite a sight to behold. The vast fighting force, constructed at a cost of $90 billion over 20 years, seemed to vanish even faster than the American aircraft escaping Kabul airport. This is despite US officials endlessly claiming in the leadup to the West’s wholesale pullout from Afghanistan that the government was more than capable of defending itself without foreign support.

However, SIGAR’s appraisal makes clear this disintegration was a long-time in the making. The February 2020 Dohar agreement between former President Donald Trump's administration and the Taliban meant that the ANDSF could no longer rely on the US military’s presence in Afghanistan to protect against losses, move weaponry and other supplies around the country on its behalf, or even for their salaries to be paid by the government in Kabul.

As a result, the often unpaid army units stationed around the country lacked ammunition, food, water, and other basic necessities to “sustain military engagements against the Taliban” - and any will whatsoever to fight.

“The Taliban’s military campaign exploited the ANDSF’s logistical, tactical, and leadership weaknesses. Direct attacks and negotiated surrenders set up a domino effect of one district after another falling to the Taliban,” SIGAR records. “The Taliban’s media and psychological warfare campaign, magnified by real-time reporting, further undermined the Afghan forces’ determination to fight.”

Even before the Dohar agreement though, “underlying and systemic factors…made the ANSDF vulnerable to collapse in the first place.” Chief among them, US plans to build the Afghan armed forces were “disconnected from a realistic understanding of the time required” to do so. This is despite Washington taking decades to achieve a similar result in South Korea.

Advisors themselves were also judged by SIGAR to be “often poorly trained and inexperienced for their mission.” Key challenges were “limited or no pre-deployment and in-theater training, and frequent rotational deployments that lacked proper handovers.” These shortcomings meant the US could neither build relationships with nor improve the capacity of the ANDSF.

Despite the report’s inventory of savage indictments, it concludes by stating SIGAR is “not making any recommendations” for future US action, or policy, as a result of its findings. Pentagon officials probably wouldn’t listen even if any were offered. An annex of the document notes that the Department of Defense’s engagement with SIGAR’s investigation was minimal, with virtually none of the information requested turned over.

The Pentagon “only provided limited responses to SIGAR’s request for information and missed every deadline for responding to SIGAR’s questions or for providing feedback to vetting drafts of this report,” the appraisal notes. For example in November 2021, SIGAR submitted 21 separate questions to the Department of Defense, asking for replies by 21 December 2021. It wasn’t until eight months later “limited records” were given.
Lessons to learn

Still, the lessons of SIGAR’s report are very clear. First and foremost, its disclosures stand as a stark warning of the fate that could await close US allies, should Washington’s “interests” be served by abandoning them at a given moment.

For example, ANDSF members who did not manage to flee Afghanistan following the US withdrawal have either been killed or joined “extremist groups”. Either way, they’ve been completely forgotten about, an obvious outcome of Washington showing little interest in ensuring safe passage out of the country for its former proxy fighters, before, during or after its own escape.

Likewise, much of the military equipment provided by the US is now used by the Taliban for both training and operations, including armored vehicles and military aircraft. They have been detected in videos of military parades, and training sessions.

It was even difficult for Washington to know which weaponry and ammunition had been sent to Afghanistan by the Department of Defense. SIGAR found officials failed to provide accurate accounting of shipments, and fell far short of oversight requirements “for monitoring sensitive equipment transferred to the Afghan government and the ANDSF,” making it likely that equipment could be lost or stolen. Internal controls failed to offer protection against fictitious records being logged in internal monitoring systems.

Nonetheless, the US did scramble to rescue some of the gear it provided to the ANDSF, in particular aircraft intended for the ill-fated Afghan Air Force.

Some of the salvaged planes were moved into storage in the US, while “others have already been repurposed and sent to other countries, such as Ukraine.”

The reference to these jets reaching Ukraine is particularly fitting, given it was not long after its hasty retreat from Afghanistan – following 20 years of failure – that Kiev became the primary foreign policy focus for the White House. With weapons, ammunition, political will and public support all nearly spent across Europe and North America, the current proxy war with Russia probably can't be sustained for two decades, and maybe not even two years.

Ukrainian leaders might want to to consult the testimony of an anonymous State Department official, quoted in the SIGAR report.

“For a long time [the Afghan government] did not take seriously that we were serious about withdrawal, and total withdrawal. They would tell me, Afghanistan is the most important piece of real estate in the world, how could you leave a territory as important geopolitically?” the official revealed. “I tried to plead with [the Afghan President], saying I know he’s very well-connected but, in our system, the President ultimately decides, and he should take this seriously not to miscalculate.”

「長い間、(アフガニスタン政府は)私たちが本気で撤退、しかも完全撤退を考えていることを真剣に受け止めていなかった。彼らは私に、アフガニスタンは世界で最も重要な不動産であり、地政学的に重要な領土をどうして離れることができるのか、と言ったのです。"私は(アフガニスタン大統領に)懇願してみた。"彼が非常に人脈が広いことは知っているが、我々のシステムでは最終的に大統領が決定するのだから、誤算にならないよう真剣に受け止めるべきだ "とね。

Kremlin explains why Russia is 'immune' from US banking crisis
Disconnection from international finance systems has turned out to be “a blessing in disguise” for Moscow, Dmitry Peskov said

The Russian financial sector is practically immune to the effects of the unfolding US banking crisis largely thanks to Western sanctions, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Tuesday.

When asked about a spillover effect from the collapse of US lenders, which has led to a global stock rout, Peskov said problems in the American banking system cannot affect Russia in any way.

“Our banking system, of course, has, let’s say, certain connections with some segments of the international financial system, but for the most part it is under illegal restrictions,” he said.

Peskov added that sanctions have been “a blessing in disguise” because Russia is “to a certain extent immune to the negative impact of the crisis that is now unfolding across the ocean.”

Russia’s financial sector became the subject of sweeping sanctions imposed by the US, the EU and their allies over the conflict in Ukraine.

Last year, US-led restrictions on Russia cut off the country’s ten key banks from the Belgium-based financial messaging system SWIFT, which facilitates banking transactions around the globe. Nine of these lenders are also subject to blocking sanctions, which ban international financial institutions from cooperating with them. The US imposed punitive measures on Russia’s largest state-owned lender Sberbank, banning it from processing payments through the US financial system.

Russia has its own financial messaging system, SPFS, which can act as a substitute for SWIFT in the domestic market. While its coverage is still much smaller than that of SWIFT – which boasts 11,000 financial organizations globally – the spread of SPFS has been gaining speed in recent months.

Meanwhile, the US banking sector has been rocked by a series of collapses that began last week and continue to rattle regional and global markets.

California-based, crypto-focused Silvergate was the first to announce its liquidation last Wednesday, followed by the implosion of Silicon Valley Bank on Friday. The SVB failure was the largest US bank collapse since the financial crisis of 2008. Signature Bank was the latest to be shut down over the weekend. Bank failures have sparked concerns over the health of the entire US banking system, with many other lenders seeing their stocks plunge.









カリフォルニアに拠点を置き、暗号に特化したSilvergateが先週水曜日に最初に清算を発表し、次いで金曜日にSilicon Valley Bankの崩壊が起こった。SVBの破綻は、2008年の金融危機以来、米国最大の銀行破綻となった。週末には、シグネチャー・バンクが最も早く閉鎖された。銀行の破綻は、米国の銀行システム全体の健全性に対する懸念を呼び起こし、他の多くの金融機関の株価が急落している。

Seismologist behind Türkiye quake prediction issues new warning
The first week of March will be “extremely critical,” Frank Hoogerbeets says
Dutch seismologist Frank Hoogerbeets, who rose to international prominence after predicting the devastating earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria last month, has said that the world could be hit with another major quake in the coming days.

Hoogerbeets, who makes his forecasts based on the motions of celestial bodies, published a video on YouTube on Monday in which he warned that “the first week of March is going to be extremely critical.”

“A convergence of critical planetary geometry around March 2 and 5 may result in large to very large seismic activity, possibly even a mega-thrust earthquake around March 3 and 4 and/or March 6 and 7,” the description to the clip read.

In the video itself, the seismologist claimed that the power of the supposed impending quake “may be well over 8 magnitude.”

The affected area could stretch thousands of kilometers, from the Kamchatka Peninsula and the Kuril Islands in Russia’s Far East, all the way down to the Philippines and Indonesia, Hoogerbeets said.

“I’m not exaggerating. I’m not trying to create fear. This is a warning,” insisted the scientist, who works at the Solar System Geometry Survey (SSGEOS).

The head of the Kamchatka branch of the Geophysical Survey of Russia’s Academy of Sciences, Danila Chebrov, has questioned Hoogerbeets’ predictions and described him as an “amateur.” The connection between the movements of the planets in the solar system and seismic activity on Earth “is rather weak, and it’s problematic to use it as the main prognostic tool,” Chebrov explained.

On February 3, Hoogerbeets issued a tweet that read: “Sooner or later there will be a magnitude 7.5 earthquake in this region (South-Central Turkey, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon).”

Three days later, a 7.8 magnitude quake struck Türkiye and Syria. The disaster has caused the deaths of more than 50,000 people, with powerful aftershocks continuing in the region to this day.

Dutch seismologist Hoogerbeets has made predictions down the years which didn’t come true. Commenting on his work earlier this month, Susan Hough of the US Geological Survey insisted that no scientist has “ever predicted a major earthquake.” Hough told NPR that the spot-on forecast for the quakes in Türkiye and Syria was just a coincidence. “It’s the stopped clock that’s right twice a day, basically,” she said.


天体の動きに基づいて予測を行うフーガービーツ氏は、月曜日にYouTubeでビデオを公開し、"3月の第1週は極めて重要なものになる "と警告しています。





ロシア科学アカデミー地球物理学調査カムチャッカ支部のダニラ・チェブロフ支部長は、ホーガービーツ氏の予測に疑問を呈し、彼を "アマチュア "と評している。太陽系の惑星の動きと地球の地震活動との関連性は「かなり弱く、主な予知ツールとして使うのは問題がある」とチェブロフ氏は説明する。



オランダの地震学者フーガービーツは、長年にわたって予言を続けてきたが、それは的中しなかった。今月初め、米国地質調査所のスーザン・ハフは、彼の仕事について、"大地震を予言した科学者はいない "と主張した。ハフ氏はNPRに対し、テュルキエとシリアの地震の予測が的中したのは、単なる偶然だと語った。"止まった時計が1日に2回当たるのは基本的に同じです "と彼女は言った。
