  • Being someone who lives in Nigeria, your only valid point for the low corona numbers is the body system of Africans. As far as Nigeria is concerned there has been very weak observation of covid safety guidelines, loads of people ignored lockdown because they live on what they make daily. The leadership that ordered the killings of peaceful protesters during the #EndSars struggle are still on the helm of covid affairs, and like the #EndSars, they failed woefully. It's almost as if God knew Africa was going to be a massive graveyard if corona hit us as hard as other continents and just decided to have mercy on us. Our bodies somehow are very tolerant of the virus. I personally know a lot of people who've had it and recovered by just taking malaria medication, folic acid and other medication, some even drink juices made from local herbs and they recover quickly. Doctors even refer to it as community acquired pneumonia than corona virus, that's because they know the patient will most likely make it out alive. Grateful to God for sparing us, things could have really really gone bad.

  • This is not true. Firstly, Africa is not s country and the manner in which different countries handled the virus is different, hence there shouldn't be a grouping of Africa's response. Secondly, most African countries have not done anything significantly better than other countries in the west. Nigeria is the most populous African country and arguably the country from which people travel the most and yet all precaution have been thrown into the dustbin. There are parts of Lagos where nobody obeyed the lockdown and they dont believe covid can affect black people, you'll be mocked for wearing a mask in those places. They believe only rich people can from covid etc. Most of the people living in Lagos live in overcrowded accommodation where social distancing is not practicable and yet there are no outbreaks. The elderly are not dying. At some point Nigerian government claimed we flattened the curve but how? By simply stopping testing. When they stopped testing, the numbers came crashing down and they asked everyone to go back to business as usual. Schools have reopened and on paper children should be wearing masks and children with fever, cough and sneezing shouldn't be attending school but none of these are implemented in most schools. Where people have masks they're more for decoration, they're not being worn at all or not worn properly. In other parts of Nigeria apart from Lagos, people simply don't care about Covid-19. Many churches in Lagos are still following government guidelines in distancing and masks but you can go into the church with the mask and pull it down immediately you enter. Mosques really are not following those guidelines. I just finished a course in UIC, Chicago and I see all the efforts put in place to fight covid and yet Illinois deaths seem to be rising again recently, we haven't put a tenth of those precautions in place. It is dishonest to make these kinds of assertions. We need to take politics out of this and some Trump bashing rhetorics and get down to the science of why we were not affected. My hypothesis is that we have some immunological protection due to exposure to some other coronavirus family of viruses. Some people believe it's because of the widespread use of chloroquine in this environment. People went to buy chloroquine in large quantities and were taking it cause a sharp rise in chloroquine prices, though prices are down again. Note, you can get almost any drug without prescription. Yet the people who took chloroquine can't account for more than 10% of the population. It's not right for influential media personalities to drive a story in a direction they want it to go. The west is not having more deaths because of things they didn't do. And it's not right to just convlude that trump supporters are not mask wearers and Biden supporters do. All these are hasty generalisations that drive division, people just want to live and I doubt anyone can be 100% mask compliant . We need to find the science of why Africa is not affected and we need to test the hypothesis. For now, I'm grateful for the mercies of God cos we would not be able to handle it if we got hit like the west got hit. I'm saying this because I am a doctor and I know we don't have what it takes.

  • The lie about South African health officials going door to door "hunting" the virus...even our very own Trevor is falling for the propaganda. Truth is Africa's numbers are low because we lack the testing equipment to carry out tests and explicitly reporting like the first world countries do...another reason is that most African cities aren't tourist attractions so it makes sense why numbers are low.

Well, for one none of the African nations has a leader like Trump....and second, apart from the natural, basic must be the heat.....reminds of the famous David Kramer song...We got da beat ( must be the heat), thank you David Kramer, you nailed my fellow South African....!!!.....just goes to show that Africans have a much better immune system than expected...!!!

  • US media could have played a far better role in curbing the pandemic outbreaks with more pro-health/preventive measure content. You could have made up for where your leader(s) didn't when it mattered. Every hour invested in political backlash resulted in lives lost on the ground. ... The fruit samples tested positive for COVID in Tanzania, by the way. Let's hope for the best everywhere in the world. It's important that this goes away on a global scale.
