Maybe the world was a better place when cars were the exception, not the rule

Some photos of an old, still green Moscow. Taken approximately in the 1950s you can see how things were going then on this virtual tour of Moscow's past. Let's see! The first photo shows a Taxi company's parking lot.


And here it is continued with taxis being repaired and checked.



And this is a public bus station.


Yaroslavl highway. Look - no cars!

Leninski ave. Not much cars too.



Tverskaia street with a lot of greens, totally missing this now.






This big building on the left is now a State Duma or Parliament and no green trees now around!



























Candida auris is an emerging fungus that presents a serious global health threat. C. auris causes severe illness in hospitalized patients in several countries, including the United States. Patients can remain colonized with C. auris for a long time and C. auris can persist on surfaces in healthcare environments. This can result in spread of C. auris between patients in healthcare facilities.

Most C. auris cases in the United States have been detected in the New York City area, New Jersey, and the Chicago area. Strains of C. auris in the United States have been linked to other parts of the world. U.S. C. auris cases are a result of inadvertent introduction into the United States from a patient who recently received healthcare in a country where C. auris has been reported or a result of local spread after such an introduction.

Candida auris was made nationally notifiable at the 2018 Council for State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) Annual Conference. For the updated case definition and information on the nationally notifiable condition status, please see the 2018 CSTE position statement Cdc-pdf[PDF – 16 pages]External.

U.S. Map: Clinical cases of Candida auris reported by U.S. states, as of February 28, 2019
Current map of the number of c. auris clinical cases in the United States

Cases reported prior to 2019 are categorized by the state where the specimen was collected. Cases reported in 2019 are categorized by the patient’s state of residence to reflect the standards of the Nationally Notifiable Disease Surveillance System. Most probable cases were identified when laboratories with current cases of C. auris reviewed past microbiology records for C. auris. Isolates were not available for confirmation. Early detection of C. auris is essential for containing its spread in healthcare facilities.
