      Tristan da Cunha asthma situation is not an emergency, no mystery virus

      Tuesday, 04 December 2007
      The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Administrator, on the island of
      Tristan da Cunha, has stated that the medical situation is not an
      emergency.

      A number of people have developed symptoms of asthma after contracting
      what appears to be a cold virus, not some mystery virus as reported
      elsewhere. At present, there are sufficient drugs on the island to
      treat all those affected, but there is some concern that these could
      run out if many more succumbed.

      No scheduled delivery of drugs by ship will take place for many weeks,
      but other islands – including St Helena – have been alerted and
      informed that a request for drug supplies might be made.

      I note that the BBC reported: "Tristan da Cunha's one resident doctor,
      a South African, has issued an urgent appeal for medical supplies."
      Where did the Administrator go to medical school? Who is responsible
      for the health of the islanders, the Medical Officer or the
      Administrator? How does anyone differentiate between a cold virus and
      any other kind of virus, with the equipment available on the island?
      Is this a medical controversy or an economic one?
