Hooper will lead the Wallabies during a tough period

GENEVA Nike Air Max Plus TN Ultra Women's White Pink , Aug. 28 (Xinhua) -- Thanks to unparalleled efforts of local health workers, the spread of diarrhea and cholera in war-torn Yemen has been effectively curbed, the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) declared on Monday, but also warned as long as the fighting rages on, more deaths from infections are expected.

UNICEF accredited the slowdown to the "heroic daily fight" of local workers, with international support Nike Air Max 97 Plus Men's Racer Pink Black , against acute watery diarrhea and cholera, especially when the local health, water and sanitation personnel had not received salaries in over ten months.

The epidemic of diarrhea and cholera in Yemen, a country mired in years of dragging conflicts, still remains the worst in the world, with over 550 Nike Air Max Plus 97 Men's Blue White ,000 suspected cases and more than 2,000 associated deaths recorded since April, and more than half of the suspected cases being children, according to UNICEF.

A nationwide cholera awareness campaign is currently underway, mobilizing over 40,000 volunteers going house-to-house and reaching over 2.7 million families so far Nike Air VaporMax Plus Men's Blue , or nearly 80 percent of households in Yemen.

The efforts are paying off. Nearly 12.5 million people across the country have received information on water disinfection, handwashing, sanitation and food safety, and 250,000 children and adults suffering from diarrhea have been provided with oral rehydration salts and referred for treatment, according to UNICEF.

Despite these recent gains Nike Air VaporMax Plus Grape White Purple Men's , the fight against cholera is far from over.

Continued violence has destroyed the bulk of the country's water and sanitation systems and more than half of Yemen's health facilities are out of service. About 15 million people are cut from safe water and access to basic healthcare.

Meanwhile, the country remains on the brink of famine, with an estimated 385,000 children suffering from severe acute malnutrition, putting them at heightened risk of acute watery diarrhea and cholera, said the UN agency.

Without an end to the fighting Nike Air VaporMax Plus Green Men's , more children will die, the UNICEF warned, calling on all parties in the conflict to find a peaceful political solution to the violence in Yemen.

FLANKER Michael Hooper has replaced Stephen Moore as captain of the Wallabies after the veteran hooker elected to step down ahead of his retirement from international rugby at the end of the season.

Hooper would lead the rebuilding team into back-to-back tests against the All Blacks when the southern hemisphere’s Rugby Championship kicks off later this month and then onto the 2019 World Cup in Japan, his coach Michael Cheika said.

The abrasive back rower has long been groomed to step up to the role, having led the side throughout the 2014 season when Moore was injured and twice during the recent June internationals when the hooker was benched.

In 2014, as a raw 22-year-old, he became the youngest Wallabies captain after Ken Catchpole and guided the team to a whitewash victory over France in his first series in charge.

Now 25, Hooper has 68 tests to his credit and played a key role in Australia’s run to the 2015 World Cup final against New Zealand when he and fellow openside flanker David Pocock teamed up in a powerful back-row combination.

“It’s a huge honor to step into this role Nike Air Max Plus TN Ultra Black Khaki Camouflage ,” Hooper said in Sydney yesterday. “I’ve learnt a lot from Stephen... Having him for the next four months is so critical for the team and so helpful for me.

“I’m so excited about learning and getting better in this role, there’s a lot of good times ahead.”

Hooper will lead the Wallabies during a tough period for Australian rugby and faces a baptism of fire against an world champion All Blacks side smarting from being held to a draw in their recent series against the British and Irish Lions.

The teams meet in Sydney on August 19, with the 2nd match of their Bledisloe Cup series in Dunedin a week later.

Australia’s provincial teams were unable to win a single match against New Zealand opponents during the Super Rugby season, while the Wallabies drew scathing criticism for their performances during the June internationals.

After overcoming Fiji, they lost at home to Scotland and suffered a huge scare against lowly Italy.

Hooper’s fitness to captain the Wallabies will also be questioned in some quarters, with former skipper Pocock set to return to the national setup next year after taking a year-long sabbatical.

Pocock could put pressure on Hooper’s hold over the starting No. 7 jersey and is seen by some pundits as the ideal man to lead the Wallabies to Japan.

Cheika Nike Air Max Plus TN Ultra Men's White Black , however, saw no conflict in managing the two opensides. “It’s not like those two guys haven’t been in the same squad before. Right now David’s having time off. He’ll have to come back in, earn his stripes, get himself back in the side. I don’t see any type of issue with the combination of players, whatsoever.”

SEOUL, June 21 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) has deployed what is believed to be its intermediate-range Musudan ballistic missile in its east coast, Yonhap news agency reported on Tuesday citing a government source.

The source, however, was quoted as saying that no immediate sign of firing has been detected yet.

An official at South Korea's defense ministry told Xinhua that the military is closely watching relevant situations.
