The Oklahoma State Department of Health and OSU have been watching mosquitoes in Oklahoma to detect the possible presence of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes in six Oklahoma Counties.
They are believed to be the mosquito carrying the Zika virus.
A small number of the mosquitoes were found in various locations in Altus. In the past, collections of these mosquitoes have been reported in Oklahoma and Comanche counties, but this is the first discovery in Jackson County and the first discovery this year.
The incident happened on a train in Heidingsfeld, near Würzburg, police said. The weapons was described as an axe and a knife, and some of the injuries are life-threatening, police said.
Officers shot and killed the attacker as he fled the scene, police said.
Police said it is too early to determine a motive or whether the incident might be terrorism related.
The attack on the train comes days after a driver rammed a truck into a crowd in Nice, France, at the end of a Bastille Day fireworks show, killing 84 people. Authorities in France have called that attack an act of terrorism.
“The prevalence of celiac disease in first-degree relatives of individuals with celiac is approximately 10%. Despite these findings, little is known about the risk of nonceliac autoimmune disease in these individuals,” said lead author Louise Emilsson, MD, PhD, in a press release. “We found convincing results that close relatives are also at risk for these conditions, but more surprisingly, we found that spouses may also be at risk.”
The study authors noted that although the excess risk found in celiac first-degree relatives can be explained by genetics, the fact that spouses also had a higher risk indicated that environmental factors could have been at work. They added that it was also possible that spouses share microbiome characteristics with their significant others, potentially affecting their risk of developing other autoimmune diseases.
