Lassa fever (LF) is endemic to Nigeria, where the disease causes substantial rates of illness and death. In this article, we report an analysis of the epidemiologic and clinical aspects of the LF outbreak that occurred in Nigeria during January 1-May 6, 2018. A total of 1,893 cases were reported; 423 were laboratory-confirmed cases, among which 106 deaths were recorded (case-fatality rate 25.1%). Among all confirmed cases, 37 occurred in healthcare workers. The secondary attack rate among 5,001 contacts was 0.56%. Most (80.6%) confirmed cases were reported from 3 states (Edo, Ondo, and Ebonyi). Fatal outcomes were significantly associated with being elderly; no administration of ribavirin; and the presence of a cough, hemorrhaging, and unconsciousness. The findings in this study should lead to further LF research and provide guidance to those preparing to respond to future outbreaks.


The EU's new Novel Food Regulation 2015/2283 became applicable on January 1, 2018. It introduces a new centralized authorization procedure as well as a fast-track notification procedure for traditional foods from third countries and provides for the establishment of an EU positive list. In December 2017, the European Commission published three implementing regulations establishing the EU list of Novel Foods and setting out administrative and scientific requirements for applications as regards to content, drafting and presentation.


That means that all of these examples from 1961 are only the tip of the iceberg. If the pre-1978 laws were still in effect, we could have seen 85% of the works published in 1989 enter the public domain on January 1, 2018. Imagine what that would mean to our archives, our libraries, our schools and our culture. Such works could be digitized, preserved, and made available for education, for research, for future creators. Instead, they will remain under copyright for decades to come, perhaps even into the next century.


The Freeport Park District Office will be closed Monday, January 1, 2018. Please contact us at 815-235-6114 or email to contact@freeportparkdistrict.org if you have any questions. Happy Holidays from Freeport Park District!


California cannabis sales tax taking effect January 2018. A 15% levy on all cannabis sales will be added on cannabis and medical marijuana products. Local governments are also adding taxes for sellers and growers which potentially could result in a 70% increase in the price of a small bag of good quality marijuana.


The state legislature extended existing protections for new parents working at larger companies to those working for smaller employers. The California Family Rights Act (CFRA) requires employers with 50 or more employees to allow workers up to 12 weeks unpaid leave for a qualifying purpose. Beginning January 1, 2018, those who work for employers with 20 or more employees will gain similar protections as those offered to new parents under the CFRA, with regard to leave for the birth, adoption or foster care placement of a child.
