New cases of mystery virus in China

New cases of mystery virus in China

With the recent discovery of a dangerous strain of unknown viral pneumonia in Wuhan, China, AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) urges the Chinese government and the World Health Organization (WHO) to do all that is necessary to identify and limit transmission of the pathogen and to be fully transparent throughout the entire process.

It is currently not known what causes the illness, but signs and symptoms include fever, with some patients having difficulty in breathing and chest x-rays showing invasive lesions of both lungs.

The Middle East respiratory syndrome, bird flu, and severe acute respiratory syndrome – the deadly virus that killed 774 people in China, Singapore, Taiwan, Canada, Vietnam, Philippines, and Hong Kong during a 2002-2003 outbreak – have all been ruled out as the cause of the current strain.

In addition to the 59 confirmed cases of the mysterious pneumonia in Wuhan to date, Hong Kong has also added the virus to its list of notifiable infectious diseases and is monitoring 14 patients as a precaution.

“With China’s New Year holiday season approaching, this is probably the worst time for a dangerous, unknown virus to be going around—it’s critical that in-country health agencies and the WHO go above and beyond to get it under control,” said AHF President Michael Weinstein.

“China was criticized for under-reporting SARS cases after the 2003 outbreak, and WHO has its own issues with its handling of infectious disease outbreaks like Ebola. We just want to ensure full transparency and a dedicated response for this virus from the outset.”

WHO also came under fire for mishandling the initial stages of the Ebola crisis in West Africa in 2014 and has been pressured to ensure a secured, sufficient response for the current Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo that has been raging since August of last year and has so far killed 2,231 people as of Jan. 6.

“Too often, politics and bureaucracy interfere with the response to an infectious disease outbreak, when the reality on the ground and getting people the most effective and efficient help possible should be the top priority” added Weinstein. “There’s simply too much at stake in a city [Wuhan] with over 11 million people to not ensure this virus is identified and one-hundred percent contained as quickly as possible.”

George Weah Now Knows Playing Football Is Different From Being A President

The toughest moments of Geroge Weah after football

The toughest moments of Geroge Weah after football

In Africa, where the poor educational background doesn’t prevent one to enter into politics, celebrities, including musicians and footballers have all showed interest in politics. 

And due to fame, they often get much support because the common suffering people that have lost confidence in politicians lookup to them.

However, the truth is, you can be a famous footballer or a wealthy musician but that wouldn’t make you a good politician. 

Good leaders require a strong set of leadership qualities to help build a country politically and economically strong but those qualities are rare in Africa, the reason the richest continent remains the poorest.

In 2017, the legendary football player George Weah became the president of Liberia but his leadership has become a failure since he could not cope with the acute problems within the country’s corruption and poverty. 

Liberia is a country that experienced 14-year-old civil war, during which about 250 thousand people died, at that time almost a tenth of the population, and the economy was destroyed. The conflict in Liberia has seriously damaged the entire region. 

After hostilities ceased in 2003, the world assisted Liberia to support the transition to democracy and the administration of Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, a former World Bank employee was elected president in 2005. 

By 2010, the West African nation was receiving $ 360 in financial assistance per person. However, since then, the international community has already lost interest in Liberia and by 2017, financial assistance fell to $ 132 per person. 

In 2018, UN peacekeepers packed their blue helmets and headed home. They left behind a dysfunctional economy and a weak state, destroyed by corruption, which was still torn by hostility.

After recovering from the devastating civil war, the next to hit the country is the Ebola virus outbreak in 2014, which killed almost 11 thousand people in the region, scared off investors and humanitarian workers and caused a recession. 

The second was the conclusion of peacekeepers, whose average annual budget amounted to almost a quarter of Liberia's GDP between 2007 and 2018. This year, the IMF expects the country's economy to grow by 0.4%.

George Weah has neither blood on his hands nor foreign accounts full of public money, yet like most African leaders, he lacks certain leadership skills to rule a country facing numerous problems he wasn’t responsible.

There is no doubt that some developed countries artificially create problems in Africa to destabilize the continent’s economy. Ebola is one of them. It was a biological weapon used on the Liberian population simultaneously with Sierra Leone and The Republic of Guinea, at the same time by the US government.

“If they elect me, I will always attach great importance to the situation of our citizens and protect their interests at all levels,” Weah said in the election race. 

He has repeatedly stated that he plans to reduce the number of poor citizens in the country, as well as improve the level of health care and education.  But to improve the economy of a country destroyed by civil war and Ebola is not an easy task.

George Weah now faces the toughest challenges of his life, as thousands of people in the square in Monrovia, the capital of Liberia, protest against him, demanding the resignation of a leader elected head of state in 2017. 

In response, the police intervened using water cannons and tear gas, to disperse the crowd.

In particular, the government's economic policies, which led some banks to no longer able to guarantee the money on current accounts, caused commodity prices to rise.

The Weah government, on the other hand, is trying to attract new investors. For example, in July this year, the first metallurgical plant was opened in Liberia for $ 22 million. 

It is stated that the new factory is environmentally friendly and also has its own power plant. The management of the plant promised that it would employ about five hundred Liberians.

“We are pleased that the economy of Liberia is of interest to foreign investors. But we do not intend to stop at the construction of this plant. The country will need more factories engaged in the production of raw materials, ”said George Weah, at the opening ceremony of the new enterprise.

Even though there are positive aspects of the economy, in terms of the fight against corruption, everything is very bad. 

According to Afrobarometer, a research organization conducting independent surveys on the African continent, about half of Liberian citizens at least once paid bribes to receive public services. Now there is no tendency to reduce corruption.

Liberia has many other problems causing discontent, high mortality rate, dangerous criminal situation, illiteracy, and poor medical facilities. 

No doubt, George Weah was a great football player but he has now realized that no matter how hard to be a player on the soccer field, it can never be compared to the tasks, a president faces in Africa to be a good leader.

Agyemang Manu, Unless You Are One Of Them, If Not, Keep Away From Obama And Gates

Mr. Kweku Agyeman Manu, as the Minister for Health in Ghana, the country where I was born, there are few things I want to share with the public and you because health issues in any developed country is a priority but not in my country. 

Ghanaians without life-threatening sicknesses or money to go to the hospital die at home, I will, therefore, not recommend you for operating a good medical system in the country.

The world is becoming extremely dangerous each day, this can be prevented but the collaboration with those who think they are supreme above God, and therefore, they have the right to do whatever they like doesn’t affect them. 

It is the countries in the third world that suffer. In fact, whatever crimes, whether physical or medical, which have taken place in Africa is the fault of African leaders and people like you, Mr. Kwaku Agyeman Manu.

Mr. Kwaku Agyeman Manu, you can never be an efficient Minister, if you collaborate with certain people within the international health institutions, monitoring health issues in Ghana. Whether you are a Christian or Muslim, remember that the Bible says: “Do not be misled, bad company corrupts good character.”

The World Health Organization is the health steering and coordinating body within the United Nations system. Among other functions, it is committed to providing guidance on global health issues, guiding health research,  establishing norms and standards and making health policy choices based on scientific evidence.

Therefore, the World Health Organization is a health an institution, despite the lies, misleads, clandestine collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and the US government to commit grave medical crimes in Africa, you can’t ignore them. You can’t, you have to work with the World Health Organization.

Ethiopia's Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus was appointed head of the World Health Organization, to give false information that bats are responsible for Ebola

I will not waste my time to bring out all the medical crimes the World Health Organization, together with the Centers for Disease Control and the US government committed in Africa. 

My colleagues, I mean the writers of the blog ‘Secrets of Aids And Ebola Facts Journal,’ Holland scientist Johan Van Dongen and the German medical doctor, Wolff Geisler have provided all the facts on our blog and ModernGhana news.

However, there are certain leaders I want you to know their devilish acts. Since in Africa, everything that glitters is gold, Africans see them as great people in the society or the world but the truth is these people are responsible for the suffering and death of innocent Africans today.

Whatever happens in Africa, affects every country politically and economically. Since in Africa, greed, and corruption are the main keys in politics, corrupt African politicians often ignore the problems and pretend everything is going well.

The reality is the ex-American president, Barack Obama, and Ethiopia's Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, are responsible for the death of thousands of innocent Africans, taken to their graves prematurely.

Obama is responsible for the Ebola biological weapon in 2014, which hit Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia. Many health writers, including Dongen of Holland, Geisler of Germany, Yoichi of Japan and Susanne Posel, an American health writer, have proved it.

Obama is also responsible for the master plan which led to the topple and assassination of Muammar Qaddafi of Libya. 

On October 20, 2011, the day when Libyan rebels found Colonel Muammar Qaddafi hiding in an old drainage pipe pulled him out of the shelter and killed, President Barack Obama convened a press conference in the White House Rose Garden, at which he said: "We reached our goals."

Ethiopia's Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus who was elected the new head of the World Health Organization, becoming the first African to lead the United Nations health agency was just appointed to mislead Africans and the ignorant world that bats are responsible for Ebola. 

Obama is responsible for the 2014 Ebola in West Africa while Bill Gates is responsible for the spontaneous Ebola occurrence in the Democratic Republic of Congo

The truth is, like Aids, Ebola is a biological weapon engineered from the laboratory of the US government. To me, these two people, Obama and Ghebreyesus, are not only traitors or betrayers but killers or wolves in sheep’s clothing.

I am pleading, if you want to be respected as Ghana’s Minister for Health, today or tomorrow, make sure as a living man, don’t have anything to do with these two men, in fact, I am extending my plea to also the Ghanaian government.

These killers don’t respect you because you have reasoned with them, they consider you as fools and corrupt African politicians. Be wise and ruin or damage your reputation or integrity.
