“No mysterious disease in Kwara” – Commissioner Abdulfatah Ahmed

Published

Kwara State Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed

Dr Atolagbe Alege,  the 
Commissioner for Health in Kwara,  says no outbreak of a mysterious
disease had been recorded in the state. Alege
made the clarification on Thursday in Ilorin  while reacting to a
report of an outbreak of a mysterious  disease at  Oro-Ago in  Ifelodun
Local Government Area of the state.
A
report had made the rounds  that a strange disease was ravaging the
Fulani community in the town, with infected victims defecating a  black
substance and vomiting  blood before dying.

But the Commissioner dismissed the report, saying there was no such disease  in the state.
“The
ministry sees it as a rumour because we deployed a response team
comprising of  an epidemiologist, directors of public health and the
 disease surveillance response team,”
he said.
He
said  experts at the ministry in company with   a team from the World
Health Organisation visited Oro-Ago where they met with elders and
community leaders.
Alege  said the team found no such mysterious disease affecting the Fulani population in the area.
The
commissioner also said the response team had  taken samples  from some
sick people at  Abanisi and ECWA hospitals  in Oro- Ago, adding that
there was no confirmed mortality.
He, however, confirmed  yellow fever, diarrhea and malaria in the community.
“The governor has directed the general hospitals across the state to be on standby in case of any unforeseen occurrence,” he said.

Alege
further disclosed  that the result of the sample earlier taken from the
community and  was expected to arrive in Ilorin on Thursday was
delayed.
He said the government would
communicate the result as soon as  examination was conducted on it,
 adding that there was no need for panic.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
