Why are bats the main carriers of infection?

Weekly magazine “Arguments and Facts” No. 8. Protection of the Fatherland – in the first place 23/02/2022

A new type of coronavirus has been discovered in bats from Laos. Why have these mice become the main source of infection? Are ours as dangerous as the Asian ones?

Three new coronaviruses were found while studying a population of bats living in caves in northern Laos. This was reported by the journal Nature. Scientists suggest that these viruses are relatives of SARS-CoV-2, capable of penetrating human cells.

Bats are the second largest group after rodents and, consequently, in terms of the number of parasites feeding on them. They regularly infected us with something,” explains Maria Orlova, PhD, the only scientist in Russia studying parasites living on bats. The coronavirus family was originally associated with bats, all other hosts are secondary. But these are not the bats that live with us (they do not pose any danger to us yet), but bats, giant animals whose wingspan reaches a meter. Being fruit-eaters, they also eat dates. Theirfeces, urine and saliva remain on fruits that fall on the table to a person, in pet food. This is how Hendra viruses were transmitted (with a mortality rate of up to 60% in humans) and Nipah (mortality rate of up to 75%). Theoretically, we can expect anything from bats.

What ships of the Black Sea Fleet could remain outside the Bosporus and the Dardanelles?

Plot Aggravation of the situation in Donbas

Turkey can close the Bosphorus and Dardanelles Straits for the passage of warships. However, even in this situation, the Russian Federation will have the right to use them to return the fleet to the base, reportedTurkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu. АиФ.ги I was looking for ships that were outside the straits. These could include ships participating in exercises in the Mediterranean Sea on February 15-21.

What happened?

Ukrainian Ambassador to Turkey Vasyl Bondar He demanded that Ankara close the straits for the passage of Russian warships.

Turkey has received an official request from Ukraine, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu confirmed. The provisions of the Montreux Convention are clear and precise. During a war in which Turkey does not participate, it is permissible to take measures against the countries participating in the war, the minister noted.

Thus, Turkey can close the Bosphorus and Dardanelles Straits for the passage of warships, but even in this situation, the Russian Federation will have the right to use them to return the fleet to base.

The Montreux Convention

The 1936 Montreux Convention on the Status of the Straits consolidated Turkey’s sovereignty over the Bosphorus and Dardanelles Straits.

Subject to prior notification of the Turkish authorities, the Black Sea Powers may conduct their warships of any class through the Straits in peacetime. For warships of non-Black Sea powers, significant restrictions on class and tonnage have been introduced.

Depending on whether Turkey is a party to the conflict, it has additional powers to regulate the passage through the straits. In some circumstances, Ankara may prohibit any country from using the straits if it considers that this will violate security in the region or create threats to itself. However, the Turkish side has repeatedly stated that it intends to fully comply with the terms of the convention and opposes its revision.

However, the Montreux Convention also provides that the ships of the countries participating in the war can return to their bases and this should be allowed to them. The Montreux Convention also provides that the same measures should be taken with respect to Ukrainian warships, the Turkish Foreign Minister said.

Foreign trip

In the period from February 15 to February 25, 2022, naval exercises were held in the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea under the leadership of Admiral Nikolai Evmenov, Commander-in-Chief of the Navy.

The fact that “Admiral Grigorovich” returned to the home port (Sevastopol) was not reported. 

In February, the Ministry of Defense also did not report the location of other ships of the Black Sea Fleet, but at the beginning of 2022, in the Mediterranean Sea, in addition to the frigate “Admiral Grigorovich”, the small missile ship “Vyshny Volochek”, the patrol ship “Dmitry Rogachev”, submarines, the naval minesweeper “Vladimir Zakharin”, were in the composition of the Naval forces of the Navy, in addition to the frigate “Admiral Grigorovich”, the small missile ship “Vyshny Volochek”, the patrol ship “Dmitry Rogachev”, submarines, the sea minesweeper “Vladimir Zakharin”.
