Flight attendant dies from measles: Rotem Amitai – an Israeli airline El Al flight attendant – noticed symptons in March after a flight from New York to Tel Aviv – CBS News

August 14th, 2019

Flight attendant with measles has died

A flight attendant who was diagnosed with measles after flying from New York to Israel has died. The family of Rotem Amitai confirmed to CBS News that the 43-year-old died after being hospitalized for months.

“Rotem was a wonderful woman and a devoted mother,” her family said in a statement, according to Israeli news outlet Ynetnews. “We are grieving her premature departure.”

The mother of three worked for the Israeli airline El Al. She started experiencing symptoms in late March after being on an El Al flight from New York to Tel Aviv, Israeli media reported. Around that time, a county about 40 miles north of New York City declared a state of emergency because of a measles outbreak. It was unclear how Amitai contracted the virus.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, measles symptoms show between seven and 14 days after a person comes into contact with the highly contagious virus. People can become infected by breathing contaminated air or touching a contaminated surface and then touching their eyes, mouth or nose.

Amitai was admitted to a hospital in April, and she remained hospitalized up to her death on Tuesday, Ynetnews reported. According to the Times of Israel, she had meningoencephalitis, a complication of measles that affects the brain and its lining.

While she was receiving treatment, it was determined that Amitai had only received one of the two recommended shots for the measles vaccine. In response, El Al told its flight attendants to get vaccinated, according to reports.

“El Al mourns the death of a member of the airline’s flight crew,” the airline said in a statement to CBS News. “We have taken steps to have our air crews inoculated.”

Amitai is the third person to have died from measles in Israel since November, according to the Times of Israel.

Israeli flight attendant who contracted measles on New York flight dies – New York Post

August 14th, 2019

The El Al flight attendant who contracted measles on a flight from New York has died after spending four months in a coma, Israeli officials and local reports said Wednesday.

Rotem Amitai, 43, died Tuesday at the Rabin Medical Center-Beilinson Campus in the city of Petah Tikva near Tel Aviv, a hospital spokeswoman told Agence France-Presse.

“Rotem was a wonderful woman and a devoted mother,” her family said in a statement to Israeli news site Ynetnews. “We are grieving her premature departure.”

Amitai, a mother of three, contracted measles on a March 26 flight from John F. Kennedy Airport to Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport.

She was hospitalized a couple of days later when she began developing symptoms associated with the virus, including a high fever and rash.

Her condition deteriorated later that month, and she fell into a coma after suffering brain damage.

The Israeli health ministry said her case was complicated by encephalitis, or swelling of the brain.

“The immediate cause of death was not defined as measles,” it said in a statement. “However, the disability (caused by) the disease was a secondary cause.”

The flight attendant had been vaccinated against measles once in 1970, instead of getting the recommended double dosage for her age group.

She is the third person to die of measles in Israel in the past 15 years, the Times of Israel reported.

The airline urged all of their flight attendants to immediately get vaccinated, after Amitai contracted the disease.

“El Al bows its head in grief in light of the death of one of our aircrew members,” the airline said in a statement.

Measles cases in both New York and Israel have skyrocketed over the past year.

Dow Jones sinks 800 points amid fears of recession – Global News

August 14th, 2019

NEW YORK – Wall Street sold off sharply on Wednesday as recession fears gripped the market after the U.S. Treasury yield curve temporarily inverted for the first time in 12 years.

READ MORE: Germany, the U.K. and others are flirting with recession. Can Canada dodge the economic bullet?

All three major U.S. indexes closed down about 3 per cent, with the blue-chip Dow posting its biggest one-day point drop since October after 2-year Treasury yields surpassed those of 10-year bonds, which is considered a classic recession signal.

Dire economic data from China and Germany suggested a faltering global economy, stricken by the increasingly belligerent U.S.-China trade war, Brexit woes and geopolitical tensions.

Germany reported a contraction in second-quarter gross domestic product, and China’s industrial growth in July hit a 17-year low.

“It was all negative and not much positive today,” said Chuck Carlson, chief executive officer at Horizon Investment Services in Hammond, Indiana. “We’re outside of the earnings season and markets are being batted around by news.”

“It’s a reactionary market right now and probably will continue to be,” Carlson added. “My guess is we’re probably in for this until after Labor Day.”

Wednesday was the first time that yields for 2-year and 10-year Treasuries had inverted since June 2007, months before the onset of the great recession, which crippled markets for years.

The U.S. yield curve has inverted before every recession in the past 50 years.

“It could be different this time,” Carlson said. “When you’ve got $15 trillion in global government debt at negative yields, that’s a new animal.

“Even if it is accurate in foreshadowing a recession, that doesn’t mean it’s coming tomorrow,” he added.

The CBOE volatility index, a gauge of investor anxiety, jumped 4.58 points to 22.10.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 800.49 points, or 3.05 per cent, to 25,479.42, the S&P 500 lost 85.72 points, or 2.93 per cent, to 2,840.6, and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 242.42 points, or 3.02 per cent, to 7,773.94.

Over 300 of the S&P 500’s components are down 10 per cent or more from their 52-week highs, according to Refinitiv data. More than 180 of those stocks have fallen more than 20 per cent from their 52-week highs, putting them in bear market territory.

All of the 11 major sectors in the S&P 500 closed in negative territory, with energy, financials, materials, consumer discretionary and communications services all falling 3 per cent or more.

Interest rate-sensitive banks tumbled 4.3 per cent.

Macy’s Inc’s shares plunged 13.2 per cent after the department store operator missed quarterly profit estimates and cut its full-year earnings estimates.

Rival department store operators Nordstrom Inc and Kohls Corp slid 10.6 per cent and 11.0 per cent, respectively.

A U.S. House of Representatives oversight panel called on Mylan NV and Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd to turn over documents as part of a review into generic drug price increases.

Mylan fell 8.5 per cent while U.S.-listed Teva shares dipped 10.5%.

Facebook Inc slid 4.6 per cent on news that the European Union’s lead regulator is investigating how the social media company handled data during the manual transcription of users’ audio recordings.

Declining issues outnumbered advancing ones on the NYSE by a 4.44-to-1 ratio; on Nasdaq, a 5.33-to-1 ratio favoured decliners.

The S&P 500 posted eight new 52-week highs and 51 new lows; the Nasdaq Composite recorded 23 new highs and 282 new lows.

Volume on U.S. exchanges was 8.68 billion shares, compared with the 7.47 billion average over the last 20 trading days.

“Wow, I just had the most beautiful night with my kids watching the sunset, feeling overwhelmingly grateful for this past few weeks spent together in Italy and so in awe of God’s creation there was nothing for me to do but cry (happy tears),” she wrote.
