This is another disease that requires great vigilance: the disruption of health services because of the pandemic has destroyed years of tuberculosis that deaths have been back on the rise for the first time for more than ten years. , alerted WHO.

The avalanche struck a group of about a dozen mountaineers while at an altitude of 6,100 meters (20,000 feet) on the dormant Chimborazo volcano , Ecuador 's highest peak, in the central Andean region, the ECU911 security service said. "The existence of four dead people (and) one injury is confirmed," the agency said, adding that " an avalanche struck the group." It did not identify the climbers or their nationalities, but the peak attracts both Ecuadoran and foreign climbers. Chimborazo, which rises 6,263 meters above sea level, is covered in snow and glaciers year-round and is located near

The avalanche on Monday in Colorado's San Juan County buried the three victims in 20 feet of debris. Greene said two different layers of snow broke loose – the one from October and one from Jan. 22. The fact that the avalanche ended in a steep gully also led to the deep debris pile. The rash of avalanche deaths could also be related at least in part to Winter Storm Orlena, which moved across the northern part of the country from the West Coast to the East Coast during the same general time frame that the deadly avalanches happened in Utah, Colorado and New Hampshire.

A surge of lava has destroyed about 100 homes on Spain’s Canary Islands a day after a volcano erupted, forcing 5,000 people to leave the area. Cumbre Vieja erupted on Sunday, sending vast plumes of thick black smoke into the sky and belching molten lava that oozed down the mountainside on the island of La Palma, one of the most westerly of the Atlantic archipelago off the coast of Morocco. Lava and smoke appear after the eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano in El Paso, on the Canary Island of La Palma.

Falling masses of snow and ice, avalanches pose a threat to anyone on snowy mountainsides. Beautiful to witness from afar, they can be deadly because of their intensity and seeming unpredictability. Humans trigger 90 percent of avalanche disasters, with as many as 40 deaths in Although avalanches need a slope to start, large avalanches accelerate downhill with sufficient momentum to cross flat terrain for short distances . In some cases, a large chunk of ice or small glacier breaks off a mountainside, gathering snow and momentum and rushing down in a dangerous steamroll.

"It is reported that there are three missing mountaineers, three dead, three wounded and seven rescuers, out of a total of 16 people," added firefighters.

The mountaineers who climbed the chimborazo are Ecuadorians, according to Quito El Comercio's daily life.

Avalanche is not linked to the activity of the volcano and, according to the firefighters, it is due to "climatic conditions".

"A group of people climbed the snowy chimborazo when an avalanche fell on it at 6 100 meters" above sea level, specified the ECU911 in a statement.

12 people were taken in Avalanche

The Chimborazo is a snowy volcano of Ecuador culminating at 6,293 meters above sea level, about 130 km south of Quito. This is the highest peak of Ecuadorian Andes and one of the highest in the world.

An avalanche is the rapid descent of a large amount of snow or ice coming down a sloped surface or mountain. For those living in foothills or the base of mountains in cold climes, avalanches are often a real and present danger. Listed below are some of the deadliest of such occurrences in recorded human history. 10. Kolka Glacier, North Ossetia, Russia, September 2002 (125 deaths ). A partial collapse of the Kolka glacier claimed 125 lives on September 20, 2002. The avalanche occurred on the northern slopes of the Kazbek massif in North Ossetia, Russia.

Nearly half of all avalanche deaths this season occurred during the week from January 30 to February 6, making it the deadliest seven-day period since 1910, when 96 people were killed in a massive avalanche in Washington state. In the 2013-2014 season, eight people were killed in avalanches in May. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the three ingredients needed for an avalanche are a slope, a snowpack and a trigger. Most avalanches occur on a slope steeper than 30 degrees.

at its feet are the cities of Riobamba and Ambato (capitals of the provinces of Chimborazo and Tungurahua).

The massif, where skiing is not practiced, attracts national and foreign mountaineers.

police officers and soldiers specialized in high mountain operations, as well as rescuers, went to the Chimborazo, where the authorities set up a unified command post to coordinate rescue actions.

The Ecuadorian Ministry of the Environment ordered the temporary closure of the Chemborazo Nature Reserve, which is always visited by tourists.

In 2003, the carcass of an Ecuadorian plane that had crushed in 1976 with 59 people on board had been found at the foot of the volcano.

The device had crushed against a wall of the chimborazo and had been hidden by the snow after an avalanche until it is found by mountaineers about 700 meters from the summit.

In 2015, the remains of three mountaineers, probably foreigners, who had disappeared 20 to 30 years earlier, were also found at an altitude of 5,00 meters.

In 1994, an avalanche on the chimborazo had made ten dead, including six French and a Swiss.

The last eruption of the volcano occurred between the beginning of the fifth century and the end of the seventh century, according to the Geophysical Institute of Quito. "The average interval between the eruptions is 1000 years and therefore the chimborazo is considered a potentially active volcano".
