Ebola Virus Alert

The Ebola outbreak in West Africa is without a doubt one of the deadliest epidemics we’ve ever had or heard in recent times, comparable to tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, SARS or MERS-COV outbreaks. Therefore it is very crucial that we know the causes, signs and symptoms of this life claiming viral disease.

Ebola is a rare but deadly virus that causes bleeding inside and outside the body.

As the virus spreads through the body, it damages the immune system and organs. Ultimately, it causes levels of blood-clotting cells to drop. This leads to severe, uncontrollable bleeding.The disease, also known as Ebola hemorrhagic fever or Ebola virus, kills up to 90% of people who are infected.

How Do You Get Ebola?

Ebola isn’t as contagious as more common viruses like colds, influenza, or measles. It spreads to people by contact with the skin or bodily fluids of an infected animal, like a monkey, chimp, or fruit bat. Then it moves from person to person the same way. Those who care for a sick person or bury someone who has died from the disease often get it.

Other ways to get Ebola include touching contaminated needles or surfaces.

You can’t get Ebola from air, water, or food. A person who has Ebola but has no symptoms can’t spread the disease, either.

What Are the Symptoms of Ebola?

Early on, Ebola can feel like the flu or other illnesses. Symptoms show up 2 to 21 days after infection and usually include:

  • High fever
  • Headache
  • Joint and muscle aches
  • Sore throat
  • Weakness
  • Stomach pain
  • Lack of appetite

As the disease gets worse,  it causes bleeding inside the body, as well as from the eyes,, ears and nose.  Some people will vomit or cough up blood, have bloody diarrhea, and get a rash. Continue reading

Scouts Day Celebration

Every year, 15th of August is cherished as the Independence Day of India. This year we had more to celebrate with the introduction of ‘Scout’s Day': the day for the scouts to be proud and remember their duty. Kelki Higher Secondary School introduced 16th of August as the scouts day from this year but we celebrated it on 15th as we had the Chief Justice visiting the school on 16th. Scouting in Bhutan was first introduced in the Year 1970. It has come a long way since then and is given a greater importance in the schools in Bhutan.

 

The members of the school’s scout association celebrated the day with the theme “Love Nature and Respect the World Around Us”. Apart from the dances, the concept was best supported by the fashion show which had the dresses made out of trashes and an exhibition which had flowers, bags and other useful items made out of trashes. It was very creative and thoughtful of the scouts to do it. The Scout’s Day was well celebrated.

Only then, there will be a sound future. She said that education is the key instrument to equalize the gender gap and all the injustice and that’s the reason education is given a greater importance. She told the students to be hardworking and commit to their works and never to take short-cuts.She also highlighted on His Majesty’s talk during his coronation about how each one of us have unique abilities and nobody being useless: we just have to recognize our abilities and work hard to succeed. 

She talked about how adolescence is the age of distraction and how children gets carried away by things around them. While highlighting this, she also shared some of her experiences with children and bringing them back to the real world. She also talked on how to maintain peace and prosperity in our young democracy.She said that being a citizen of a democratic country, we should not always be sensitive of our own freedom but also the freedom of others.

The visit of the minister was a short one but very educative. It was an honor for Kelki to have her.
