07/2020 - Launch of the MediLabSecure Covid-19 surveillance and impact study to strengthen surveillance and protection capacities in African hospital settings


agenda


Healthcare workers are on the front line in the management of the epidemic, with different challenges that include a spectrum of responsibilities ranging from surveillance of cases to clinical management and care of patients; they are daily exposed to the risk of contagion and in case of infection can become potential spreaders. In that sense, they also play an essential role in the implementation of adequate infection prevention and control measures in healthcare facilities.


The core of the MediLabSecure project is to strengthen preparedness and response capacities to emerging viral diseases in the Mediterranean, Black Sea and Sahel regions, promoting a “One Health” approach. Therefore, the public health emergency, due to the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 of zoonotic origins, falls under the scope of the MediLabSecure project, whose European partner Institutes (Laboratory for Urgent Response to Biological Threats (CIBU) at the Institut Pasteur in France, Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS) in Italy and Animal Health Research Center (INIA-CISA) in Spain) rapidly reacted implementing actions to support national surveillance capacities in the beneficiary countries and beyond.


In this framework, and according to the WHO recommendations to establish a cohort study on healthcare workers, MediLabSecure has launched a multicentric surveillance and impact study in 4 African countries: Burkina Faso and Niger (members of the MediLabSecure network), Central African Republic and Madagascar (members of the Institut Pasteur International Network - IPIN); a fifth country, Cameroon (also member of IPIN), will participate in the study as well, directly supported by the Institut Pasteur. 



07/2020 - SARS Cov-2 in animals Third update

The Animal Health Research Center (INIA-CISA), coordinator of the animal virology working group, has developed a document summarizing all available information regarding SARS Cov-2 in animals, including data from natural and experimental infections.


The third version of the document is based on studies and reports available since May 10th, 2020.

07/2020 - simplified key of the major mosquito vectors in europe, north africa & west asia

IRD, coordinator of the medical entomology working group, has developed in collaboration with the University of Novi Sad, Serbia, a key of the major mosquito vectors in Europe, North Africa and West Asia.

The key is simplified but helping identification tool, compiling the mosquito species that are of out most importance for both animal and human health. The authors selected morphological features that are quite easily recognised by the beginners and with high diagnostic values to lower the chance of misidentification.

Apart from the key, useful data on ecology, distribution, surveillance, control, vectorial capacity, identification confidence and morphology are provided, with most useful aspect outlined in the summary box.

They did their best to fulfil the demand of many trainees at the basic training in mosquito identification across the region, and believe that it will be of particular value for public and veterinary workers.

    05/2020 - SARS Cov-2 in animals

    The current spread of COVID-19 is a result of human to human transmission.

    Now that SARS-CoV-2 infections are widely distributed in the human population, there is a possibility for some animals to become infected through close contact with infected humans. Infection of animals with SARS CoV-2 virus may have implications for animal health and welfare, forwildlife conservation, and for biomedical research.

    Until now, all animal COVID-19 cases have been anthropozoonoses, which means that the disease is transmitted from infected humans to animals when they are in close contact. With the current evidence, it seems that domestic animals do not play a significant role in this human disease. However, new findings such as the outbreaks in mink farms in Netherlands warrant further research.


    In view of the increasing cases of SARS CoV-2 detection in animals, the Animal Health Research Center (INIA-CISA), coordinator of the animal virology working group, has developed a document summarizing available information, including data from natural and experimental infections.


    Based on new studies and reports, this document will be updated on a regular basis and made available in the section dedicated to animal virology working group Covid-19 activities.


    In the meantime, do not hesitate to share and disseminate it within your own network!

    05/2020 - the institut pasteur in tunis mobilized to face covid-19 epidemic

    Historical member of the MediLabSecure network, the Institut Pasteur in Tunis is actively contributing to Covid-19 preparedness and response in Tunisia.


    As National Reference Laboratory for West Nile Virus (WNV), poliovirus, measles and rubella surveillance, as well as WHO Collaborative Center for the EMRO region, the Institut Pasteur in Tunis has been directly involved in the management of the WNV and measles epidemics which recently occurred in 2019 in Tunisia.


    In the context of Covid-19 epidemic, the Institut Pasteur in Tunis has rapidly anticipated and started initiating active preparedness and coordinated response to Covid-19 at national level. As the virus was not circulating yet in Tunisia, the Institute took part in a regional training organised in Senegal by the Institut Pasteur in Dakar, also member o fthe MediLabSecure network, in February to strengthen their diagnostic capacities. Besides, thanks to the Institut Pasteur Paris support, the Institut Pasteur in Tunis received initial diagnostic kits for SARS-Cov-2 in order to accelerate their preparation and to be able to effectively implement themselves the diagnostic capacity.


    During this global emergency situation, the Institut Pasteur in Tunis could rely on the past work realised for preparedness to emerging viral diseases at national level for facing the current Covid-19 epidemic.


    Wasfi Fares and Anissa Chouikha, who work together in the Laboratory of Clinical Virology in charge of the analysis of Covid-19 tests at the Institut Pasteur in Tunis, testify in an interview about the key role of the Institute in the fight against Covid-19 epidemic and more globally against other epidemics that have affected and are still affecting the country.

    03/2020 - Medical entomology newsletter #21

    Despite the Covid-19 pandemy which impact most of the activities, here is the new edition of the medical entomology newsletter to keep you updated on whats' going on within the network.
    Missed earlier newsletter? Do not worry you can find them here!

    03/2020 - medilabsecure on the front line to face the covid-19 epidemic

    agenda


    The outbreak of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (first called 2019-nCoV and then officially SARS-CoV-2) that emerged in the city of Wuhan (Hubei Province, China) in December 2019 is now affecting 80% of the countries worldwide, to the point of being officially reclassified as a pandemic by WHO.


    The main mission of the MediLabSecure European project is to enhance preparedness to emerging viral diseases in the Mediterranean, Black Sea and Sahel Regions. As One-health project clustering virologists and veterinarian virologists along with medical entomologists and public and animal health representatives, the usual target of the project are vector-borne viruses such as arboviruses. However, public health emergencies due to a novel virus, in particular of zoonotic origins such as the SARS-CoV-2 virus, are part of our missions.


    In this context, the human virology working group coordinated by the Laboratory for Urgent Response to Biological Threats (CIBU) at the Institut Pasteur, has been directly involved in the SARS-CoV-2 epidemic response from the beginning through active information, discussions, diagnostic tools sharing and technical support.


    In particular, early during the crisis, the human virology working group sent diagnostic kits for SARS-CoV-2 (primers, probes, and positive controls) based on the Corman et al. protocol from Charité, to all laboratories from the network that requested support in order to accelerate their preparation.

    Thanks to its support, the actual first cases of SARS-CoV-2 infection have been identified by laboratories from the MediLabSecure network in Algeria, Lebanon, Morocco, Republic of North Macedonia, Serbia, Bosnia Herzegovina, Jordan, Palestine, and Mauritania.

    Additionally, the CIBU has supported laboratories from the network in diagnosis before the implementation of the procedure, but also after, to validate their initial diagnostics by confirmation of the first positive cases.

    Today, we are implementing an EQA on coronaviruses with the company QCMD for all voluntary laboratories.


    In parallel, the coordinators of the human virology working group had the opportunity to participate, through an online presentation on the laboratory diagnostic protocols and biosafety, in a training of trainers entitled « Strengthening country capacities on preparedness and response for public health cross-border threats focusing on COVID-2019 » organized by twining project MediPIET from February 24th to 26th 2020 in Tunis.


    During this global emergency situation, MediLabSecure could rely on the past work realised for preparedness to emerging viral diseases in the Mediterranean, Black Sea and Sahel Regions. The strength of the network established over the past few years allowed the human virology working group to contact, communicate, support and provide tools for facing the epidemic. These first collaborative successes illustrate perfectly the network ownership and the dynamic brought to ensure its sustainability.


    Even in spite of the current lockdowns in France, Spain and Italia, Jean-Claude, Guillain, and the entire MediLabSecure team are still working and supporting all our colleagues and friends who are on the first line as well. We have limited capacities now, but we will do our best to work with you during this crisis.

    If you need help or support, advice or if you have information useful for our community, please let us know. MediLabSecure was meant to prepare ourselves and to create a strong collaborating network to face such an event! Let’s prove we can do it!
