TRENTON >> Families in New Jersey who suspect a home health aide is abusing a loved one can now borrow a tiny surveillance camera from the state. Attorney General Christopher Porrino announced details of the safe care cam program on Thursday in Trenton. The program is designed to ensure residents who suspect abuse by home health care providers have access to hidden cameras to gather evidence. Since January, the state has disciplined nearly 300 certified home health aides for alleged crimes on and off the job including criminal sexual contact and assault.

Porrino says that’s a significant increase over 2015 when close to 200 aides were disciplined. Read more

OH NO! Zika Mosquitoes Can Infect Their Eggs, Too

Zika Mosquitoes Can Infect Their Eggs, Too

NBCNews.com‎ - 3 hours ago
The Aedes mosquitoes that spread Zika can leave little Zika bombs in their eggs, helping the virus survive dry spells. Here's another reason it will be hard to get rid of Zika: Mosquitoes can pass the virus to their offspring in their eggs. It's not a surprising finding. Mosquitoes infect their larvae with other viruses, too, including Zika's close relative the dengue virus.

But it's another obstacle for people trying to get rid of Zika and the mosquitoes that spread it. In this May 23, 2016, file photo, an Aedes aegypti mosquito sits inside a glass tube at the Fiocruz institute where they have been screening for mosquitos naturally infected with the Zika virus in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. "It makes control harder," said Dr. Robert Tesh of the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. "Spraying affects adults, but it does not usually kill the immature forms — the eggs and larvae. Spraying will reduce transmission, but it may not eliminate the virus."

Usually, it takes people plus mosquitoes to spread a virus. The mosquitoes bite actively infected people, incubate the virus for a while, and then bite other people to spread it. If no people in an area are infected, no virus spreads. Sometimes an animal can act as a reservoir — birds can keep West Nile Virus spreading, for instance. Related: Two Existing Drugs Might Stop Zika. So-called vertical transmission allows the virus to spread even if all the adult mosquitoes in an area die out. Tesh and colleagues infected Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes with Zika and then tested the eggs they laid. Read on

Now there is concern about the pesticide being harmful to people.

Will keep you posted when I find more research on this topic.
