Scientists home in on potential treatments for deadly Nipah virus

Scientists home in on potential treatments for deadly Nipah virusScientists working on how to combat a highly infectious and deadly virus called Nipah, which is transmitted to humans from bats and pigs, say they have found around a dozen potential drugs that might be developed to block the disease. The early-stage molecule-screening research could lead to the development of a drug to target Nipah, which has caused several deadly outbreaks in South Asia and which is seen by some experts as posing a pandemic threat. "This is a potentially very serious health hazard, because so far, every single time it has struck, the fatality rates have been extremely high," said M.S. Madhusudhan, an associate professor at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research who co-led the research.

U.S. Senate confirms John Sullivan as next U.S. ambassador to Russia

U.S. Senate confirms John Sullivan as next U.S. ambassador to RussiaThe U.S. Senate on Thursday confirmed the nomination of John Sullivan, President Donald Trump's pick to be Ambassador to Russia, at a time when ties between Washington and Moscow have been strained. Sullivan, a lawyer who has served in previous Republican administrations before becoming deputy secretary of State in 2017, will replace Jon Huntsman, who resigned in August after two years in the post amid speculation that he will run for Utah governor. Sullivan will be the top U.S. diplomat in Russia at a particularly challenging time in the bilateral relationship, which is strained over a number of disagreements on Ukraine, the Syrian civil war and Iran's influence in the Middle East, on top of U.S. allegations of Russian meddling in American elections.
