Introduction: In December 2019, the COVID-19 disease, caused by a new coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) appeared in Wuhan, China, and quickly spread worldwide. There is little information on the clinical and epidemiological characteristics of COVID-19 in pediatrics.
Objectives: Describe the clinical and epidemiological profiles in children under 15 years of age with COVID-19 in Morocco.
Methods: A series of cases of children under the age of 15 with COVID-19 nationwide were included from March 02 to May 03, 2020.All cases of SARS-CoV-2 infection have been confirmed by RT-PCR of samples taken from nasopharyngeal swabs. The epidemic curve was constructed based on the date of clinical investigation of the disease.
Results: In the study cohort, 495 children were infected with SARS-Cov2, or 9.4% of all COVID-19 cases nationwide. Children therefore seem to be little affected by this virus. The mean age of these children was 7.3 ± 4.1 years, more than half of the cases (54.3%) were asymptomatic and 39.7% presented with a benign clinical picture. Symptoms common to admission were cough and fever which were the most frequent signs with 76% and 62% respectively. The average incubation period was 5 days and 81.9% of cases had an incubation period <7 days. Only one death was recorded in a 17 month old infant and the cure rate was 25.3% as of May 03, 2020.
Conclusions: Infected children are generally asymptomatic or have relatively milder clinical symptoms than infected adults. We must attach importance to the detection, diagnosis and early treatment of infected children.
Our study was devoted to the phenotypic characterization of antibio-resistant salmonella strains with a view to identify them and to study their susceptibility to alicaments particularly Brassica oleracea, Allium cepa, Allium schoenoprasum and honey.By comparing the phenotypic characterization (morphological and biochemical) of our 7 salmonella strains using the key of Monica 2014, we found out 42.86% Salmonella paratyphi A and 57.14 % of Salmonella typhi.Extraction of the alicaments by the aromatogram method permitted us to obtain the following results:The white onion extract showed an antibacterial activity of 8 mm diameter inhibition zones on S1 strain and 18 mm diameter on S7 strain while the ethanolic extract of Allium schoenoprasum showed an antibacterial activity of 2 mm diameter inhibition zones on strains S2 and S3. The concentrated white onion extract showed an antibacterial activity of 4 mm diameter inhibition zone on S2 strain while the red onion showed 4 mm diameter inhibition zones on S2 strain. Strains S2 and S5 and Allium schoenoprasum showed an antibacterial activity of the inhibition zones of 12 mm and 14 mm diameters on strains S6 and S7, and finally the honey showed an antibacterial activity of the zones of inhibitions of 21 mm diameter on strain S1, and 2 mm diameter on strains S2, S3 and S6.
The purpose of this study is to understand the organization of banana transport and its main related problems. The study was carried out on a sample of 200 traders and 50 transporters in Mouyondzi. Excel 2010 and Sphinx V.5 software were used for the analysis of primary data. Secondary data were also collected and analyzed. The results obtained show that the main direct players in the transport of bananas are transporters, handlers, traders and parking lot managers. Social capital is mobilized by traders during supply and transport, most of whom are from Mouyondzi and its surroundings. The proportion of 75% of the banana diet flows from traders comes from the Louboto - Kiniangui and Mbello - Moussengué axes. The two main destinations for bananas transported to Mouyondzi are the cities of Brazzaville and Pointe-Noire. Group taxis, trucks and vans are the main means of transport used. Banana loss issues, lack of maintenance of agricultural roads and tracks and police harassment are the main problems in banana road transport.
The complexity of urban challenges undermines the governance practices in force in cities that have experienced anarchy in the development of the territory and networks. Based on this observation, organizational and technological innovation have made it possible to develop innovative solutions for the production of networked urban services. Based on the Internet of Things, the construction and management of a smart city is based on the combination of territorial intelligence, heritage intelligence and scientific and technological intelligence. The analysis of these different elements of the urban stakes management system shows the importance of the reforms in the sharing of urban information but also, the need for precautions for the security of networked data and physical equipment. that feed the networks.
The consumer's right to information is intended to protect their consent, health and safety and allow them to make informed decisions. This study aims to contribute to the eradication of the violation of the consumer’s right to information in Benin. The methodological approach adopted consisted of a review followed by field investigation with the various stakeholders, using interviews conducted from a previously established guide. The data collected has been processed by suitable statistical methods. The results revealed that of the 468 surveyed, there were 277 men and 191 women whose ages varied from 18 to over 50 years. The majority of respondents were aware of the notion of advertising. 59% of respondents bought through advertising. 70.1% said they wanted to be informed about the content of the products they buy and believed that they have the right to information. For the professionals met, the advertisement does not reveal all the informations on the products with the most convincing aim is to make the product flow more quickly. It then becomes urgent that measures be taken to avoid this imbalance between the position of consumers and that of professionals. These measures must lead to sufficient consumer protection provisions.
