Should you fly yet? An epidemiologist and an exposure scientist walk you through the decision process Passengers onboard an American Airlines flight to Charlotte, North Carolina, from San Diego, California. Sandy Huffaker/Getty Images Kacey Ernst, University of Arizona and Paloma Beamer, University of Arizona We don’t know about you, but we’re ready to travel. And that typically means flying. We have been thinking through this issue as moms and as an exposure scientist and infectious disease epidemiologist. While we’ve decided personally that we’re not going to fly right now, we will walk you through our thought process on what to consider and how to minimize your risks. Why the fear of flying? The primary concern with flying – or traveling by bus or train – is sitting within six feet of an infected person. Remember: Even asymptomatic people can transmit. Your risk of infection directly corresponds to your dose...

Lines on water cannot save Bay of Bengal fisheries Countries along the Bay of Bengal have finalised their EEZs, but in the absence of active cooperation, fishers continue to be jailed in other countries while overfishing continues Fishing in Bangladesh’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ) in the Bay of Bengal [image by: Mohammad Arju] Mohammad Arju, May 15, 2020 Bangladesh, India, and Myanmar have agreed their borders in the Bay of Bengal, but neither fish, nor fishers are bound by the lines on the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) map. The fish do not know. In the hope of a better catch, fishers cross boundaries, knowingly or unknowingly. As more boats chase fewer fish, clashes are common. Fishers based in Cox’s Bazar and Patuakhali fish harbours in Bangladesh say that, traditionally, they used to fish along side vessels from other countries in the deep sea. Now, as it is becoming harder...

Seafarers Need All the Support They Can Get in Hellenic Shipping News 23/05/2020 Today’s market circumstances, amid the mayhem that COVID-19 continues to exert on the global supply chain, seafarers can easily be seen as “collateral damage”, needing all the support they can get.

At this critical point during these unprecedented times, people outside the maritime industry can now better understand and realize the role of seafarers in this industry, it’s wide spectrum and that ninety percent of global trade is transported by commercial seaborne transportation”. According to Intermodal’s, Christopher Whitty, Director, Towage & Marine Port Services, “it has been three months since the crew-repatriation issue first arose and despite a major lobbying effort...
