Río de Janeiro, 10 oct (EFE).- Las autoridades sanitarias brasileñas trasladaron hoy a Río de Janeiro un paciente guineano considerado como el primer caso sospechoso de ébola en Brasil, que fue detectado en la sureña ciudad de Cascavel (estado de Paraná).Agencia EFE

Según informó el Ministerio brasileño de Salud, se trata de un hombre de 47 años que llegó a Brasil el pasado 19 de septiembre procedente de Guinea Conakry, uno de los países africanos más afectados por la enfermedad, después de hacer escala en Marruecos.

El paciente llegó cerca de las 6.30 (9.30 GMT) al aeropuerto internacional de Río de Janeiro en un avión de la Policía Federal de Carreteras, siguiendo los protocolos internacionales para el tratamiento de la enfermedad.

Está previsto que el paciente sea internado en el Instituto Nacional de Enfermedades Infecciosas Evandro Chagas, centro de referencia del país, que forma parte del complejo de laboratorios público Fundación Oswaldo Cruz, en Río de Janeiro.

Las autoridades informaron de que este hombre presentó síntomas de fiebre durante los últimos dos días, aunque no tuvo hemorragias, vómitos u otros síntomas.

Pero como se trataba de un país donde la epidemia de ébola está en su apogeo y desarrolló los síntomas dentro de los 21 días después de salir de África, el caso fue considerado sospechoso por el Ministerio de Salud.

El ministro de Salud brasileño, Arthur Chioro, y el secretario de Vigilancia en Salud, Jarbas Barbosa, ofrecerán una rueda de prensa a las 10.00 hora local (13.00 GMT) en el Ministerio de Salud, en Brasilia, para hablar del caso.

While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.

The Chaunsa has a Brix rating in the 22 degree level which is unheard of!
Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.
Perhaps it is time for a GLOBAL taste test ???

Mangoes date back 65 million years according to research ...

Experts at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) here have traced the origin of mango to the hills of Meghalaya, India from a 65 million year-old fossil of a mango leaf. 

The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old. The 'carbonized leaf fossil' from Damalgiri area of Meghalaya hills, believed to be a mango tree from the peninsular India, was found by Dr R. C. Mehrotra, senior scientist, BSIP and his colleagues. 

After careful analysis of the fossil of the mango leaf and leaves of modern plants, the BISP scientist found many of the fossil leaf characters to be similar to mangifera.

An extensive study of the anatomy and morphology of several modern-day species of the genus mangifera with the fossil samples had reinforced the concept that its centre of origin is Northeast India, from where it spread into neighbouring areas, says Dr. Mehrotra. 

The genus is believed to have disseminated into neighb…

INDIA 2016 : Mango production in state likely to take a hit this year

TNN | May 22, 2016, 12.32 PM IST

Mangaluru: Vagaries of nature is expected to take a toll on the production of King of Fruits - Mango - in Karnataka this year. A combination of failure of pre-monsoon showers at the flowering and growth stage and spike in temperature in mango growing belt of the state is expected to limit the total production of mango to an estimated 12 lakh tonnes in the current season as against 14 lakh tonnes in the last calendar year.

However, the good news for fruit lovers is that this could see price of mangoes across varieties decrease marginally by 2-3%. This is mainly on account of 'import' of the fruit from other mango-growing states in India, said M Kamalakshi Rajanna, chairperson, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd.

Karnataka is the third largest mango-growing state in India after Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.
