has killed almost 10000 people in West Africa it said on Friday The test developed by US firm Corgenix Medical Corp is less accurate than the standard test but is easy to perform does not require electricity and can give results within 15 minutes WHO spokesman Tarik Jasarevic said "It’s a first rapid test It’s definitely a breakthrough" he said The standard laboratory test has a turnaround time of 12-24 hours While the Corgenix test is not failsafe it could quickly identify patients who need quarantine and make it much easier to verify rapidly any new outbreaks Procurement and roll-out of the test kits will not begin immediately because the company is still working out costing and needs a week or two more to finish administrative procedures with the US Food and Drug Administration Jasarevic said The health charity Medecins Sans Frontieres which has been at the forefront of the fight against Ebola had expressed an interest he said The so-called ReEBOV Antigen Rapid Test involves putting a drop of blood on a small paper strip and waiting 15 minutes for a reaction in a test tube It is able to correctly identify about 92 percent of Ebola infected patients and 85 percent of those not infected with the virus the WHO said Knowing that margin of error is a major help said Robyn Meurant from the WHO’s department of essential medicines and health products "The big fear has been that the market gets flooded with tests of unknown quality or unknown performance and with Ebola you need to know what are the limitations A false negative has enormous implications So does a false positive" she said "So this is not a perfect test but. for a rapid test (it is) not too bad at all" It would be especially useful if a cluster of suspected cases flared up she said "If you had five patients with suspected symptoms and you went ahead and tested them and they were all positive you’d have a high degree of confidence that you’ve got Ebola" Because of the margin of error the Corgenix test would then need to be followed up by the standard laboratory test The WHO is still assessing four or five other rapid test candidates but Meurant said it was not possible to say when the next approval might be (Reporting by Tom Miles; Editing by Kevin Liffey and Crispian Balmer) This story has not been edited by Firstpost staff and is generated by auto-feed Written by MEGHNA PRAKASH Manas

Published: August 4 2012 2:55 am Related News As readers of this column well knowI havent had much positive to say in recent years about the monetary policies of the Reserve Bank of India Central bank policy comes in two areas exchange rate and interest rates On both countsthe policy has been mysteriousand questionable The RBI has consistently changed its goalposts regarding inflationgrowthand the tradeoff between growth and inflation On exchange ratesin my humble viewit has misunderstood the mechanics of exchange-rate devaluation Currency devaluation does help growthbut a real devaluation can be achieved in one of two ways The first method is to not allow the currency to appreciate when fundamental forces suggest that it should These forces come in two forms: excessive capital inflows or higher per capita GDP growth than that of the US (devaluation with strength)and a nominal devaluation Research shows that the formerproductivity-based devaluationis much more significant than the latter (devaluation from weakness) In recent yearsthe RBI has done just the opposite of what both theory and empirical evidence would suggest It has consistently devalued from a position of weakness rather than from a position of strength Former RBI deputy governorRakesh Mohanhas forcefully made the same point in a recent interview So dont believe mebut at least believe a distinguished former RBI official Though former governors Bimal Jalan and YV Reddy have not yet opined on the issuemy guess is that they would agree with Mohan And if you dont believe all of these distinguished economists and policymakersjust look at what China has done for the last 30 years Regarding that other aspect of monetary policy setting interest rates the RBI has camouflagedchanged goalpostsspoken with many forked tonguesand has been confusing It has been relentless in talking about inflationary expectationssomething no one can convincingly measureleast of all by the so-called inflation expectations survey conducted by the RBI Every inflation measure known to woman or the RBI is down from its peaksthe core inflation measure of the RBI has averaged less than 25 per cent for 2012and the GDP deflator for the January-March quarter registered 33 per cent (All data are SAAR seasonally adjusted annualised rates) Not just inflationbut growthhas also fallenand fallen mightily The once proud Indian economy is stuttering at sub-par growth And what did the RBI do at its most recent policy review meeting on July 31 It kept the repo rate unchanged at 8 per centand threw an inconsequential bone to the growthwallahs by reducing the statutory liquidity ratio level from 24 per cent to 23 per cent Inconsequential because the banks are not finding any borrowers and parking 29 per cent of the funds The reduction of the SLR from 24 to 23 per cent is gratuitousand meaningless Given all these faultswhy am I cheering the RBI decision to hold the real repo rate steady at an exorbitantly high 47 per cent (repo rate at 8 per cent minus 33 per cent inflationGDP deflator) It is becauseunfortunately for Indiaand the RBIthe fiscal policy undertaken by Sonia Gandhi and Pranab Mukherjee over the last several years has been irresponsible beyond compare One always knew about Sonia Gandhis populist instincts; in case anyone was in doubtthe former finance ministerMukherjeeboldly declared in his maiden speech after ascending the stairs of the presidency: trickle down growth does not help the pooronly government intervention does Why isnt the prime minister among the fiscally irresponsible decision-makers of India Because one cannot accuse him of both being subservient to the wishes of Madam Gandhi and making decisions that he has been against throughout his long and distinguished career I think people do injustice to logicevidence and Singh by blaming him for both not making economic decisions and making these same woefully wrong decisions So what is a central bank to do As a first measureit should confrontcajole and coordinate with the fiscal authorities in order that sensible policies for India be followed There seemed to be very little agreementand therefore coordinationwhen Mukherjee was the FM But hope did spring eternal when he was promoted to the ceremonial post of president Then Singh was in charge Yetto dateno action has been taken on the reduction of diesel subsidies Madam Gandhis defence is that this will be an unpopular decision But unpopular for whom An early lesson I learnt in the study of economics was to follow the money if some decision is not rational then somebody must be making money The diesel subsidies primarily accrue to the middle class and the rich; there is illegal trafficking in the oil sector The car companies benefit from the subsidy to diesel cars The recent drought has presented the Congressand Madam Gandhiwith an ideal political recovery path (If there is someone in worse shape than the economyit is the Sonia Gandhi-led Congress party) It can outline a path to remove diesel subsidies over the next 12 months in a time-bound manner With some likely luckoil prices will move downwards so the overall adjustment may not be as onerous as it looks today With sensible policiesthe rupee will appreciateand this will further bring down the price adjustment And Madam Gandhi can state that part of the gains from subsidy reduction will go towards drought relief and to the genuinely poor rather than the artificially poor supporters and beneficiaries of wrong policies The RBI is to be applauded for confronting the Centre and standing up to the populist policies reminiscent of the unfortunate economic regime under another Gandhi It has not reduced repo rates because the Centre has been arrogant in pursuing fiscally retrograde policies like high procurement prices for food (hence food inflation and higher food subsidies) and high diesel subsidies (hence higher wasteful expenditurehigher fiscal deficit) It is now show-me time the Centre changes its bad economic policiesor all of Indiaand especially its poorpay a heavy economic price of high unemploymentlow growthand high food inflation If the Centre acts sensibly and responsiblythe RBI will cut rates to further benefit India But this government has lost all credibility for doing the right thing The RBI is right in calling for action rather than meekly bearing the burden of the
