Education / Re: 10 Words Nigerians Commonly Misspell by aletheia(m): 7:06pm On Sep 16
A pet peeve of mine are those who cannot spell their names properly e.g:

Micheal is wrong. Michael is the right spelling
Isreal is wrong. Israel is the right spelling
Racheal is wrong. Rachael/Rachel is the right spelling

And so on.

Politics / Re: Ebola Hoax: Why Are Mr Sawyer's Wife & Kids Not Infected? by aletheia(m): 11:03pm On Aug 14
GenBuhari: If only 53% it beg the question even more why the hysteria over Ebola whereas Rabies is approx 100%

If you separate white cases and African cases you will find that death rate amongst whites is probably about 15% and African about 90%

This would show you the real death rate should really be 15%.

So why the hysteria when there is no hysteria for Rabies that is 100%?
You 've been going on and on about rabies as if it clinches the argument.
1. Rabies is a zoonosis. It ordinarily does not infect man.
2. Rabies is transmitted through the bite of an infected animal like a dog.
3. A person with rabies is not likely to infect those around him unlike those infected with Ebola
4. Dogs are required to be vaccinated against rabies. This is the most important primary preventive measure. There is no preventive vaccine against Ebola.
5. Once rabies develops, it is almost universally fatal, however and this is the critical thing, a person bitten by a rabid animal can be treated within 48 - 72 hours of the bite with anti-rabies shots which prevent him from developing rabies. You can't do that for Ebola.
6. We do not get rabies epidemics in which 1000s of people die within months. Now if you had tried to argue this using the flu virus, it would make more sense.

Stop trying to mislead people into not taking precautions that might save their lives in the event that the Ebola outbreak spreads. While I do not agree that experimental and unproven therapies be inflicted on Nigerians, the Ebola outbreak represents a serious danger to us all.

This was how Nigerians denied the existence of HIV/AIDS until people started dying off.

OrlandoOwoh: But everybody that has it in Nigeria dies? How come no cure has been found for this disease since 1976?
This is part of the ignorance that leads people to bathe with salt. How is it that everyone who has had Ebola in Nigeria died? Not everyone who contracts Ebola dies. The case fatality rate in this current outbreak is about 53%. Not everyone dies. Cures are difficult to develop for viral illnesses.

The solution to ignorance is to read. Most of you don't read. And when you do, you fail to process and synthesize the information you are presented with.

GenBuhari: Ok what about his colleagues why have they not been infected?

How about the family or friends he lives with?
His sister died of Ebola. Does she not qualify as family?
The protocol officer that interacted with him is also dead. Does he not qualify as a colleague.

It is notions like this that caused people in Liberia and Sierra Leone to hide away their sick thus not ensuring the effective quarantine that would have stopped the outbreak.

Ever since the emergence of Ebola in the 70s, it is doctors and nurses who have been most at risk. The only point on which I agree with you is that Africans should not be used as experimental guinea pigs for unproven vaccines and drugs.

A year on the "Arab Spring" has become a horror of nightmare. Ask the Libyans, Egyptians, Syrians, and the Iraqis. History shows that ultimately all "revolutions" fail. So Nigerians are actually better off with their approach to issues.

NwaNimo1: The only connection is that they are 'man made' viruses produced and released to depopulate!

(Black man - wake up)

The only connection?

What about this:
aletheia: . . .the CCR5Δ32 mutation which is much more common in the European population and confers protection against HIV

. . .it has been shown that CCR5Δ32 does not confer protection against Yersinia pestis, the presumed causative agent of the Black Death but does confer some protection against viral haemorrhagic diseases like Ebola.
Politics / Re: The Link Between HIV And Ebola by aletheia(m): 7:17pm On Jul 30
For the first time in history, the virus has been documented as having infected well over 1,000 people across at least three nations all in one outbreak.
Politics / The Link Between HIV And Ebola by aletheia(m): 6:48pm On Jul 30
It struck me a little while back that the dynamics and manifestations of the Ebola virus infection closely resemble that of the Black Plague that killed more than a third of Europe's population in the past. So I decided to do a little more research

History has always taught that it was spread by rats even though overwhelming evidence suggested a person-to-person mode of transmission, together with outbreaks of Black Death in places like Iceland where there were no rats.

To my shock, I found that there is a possible connection between HIV and Ebola. According to the leading researchers in this area, Susan Scott and Christopher Duncan, the CCR5Δ32 mutation which is much more common in the European population and confers protection against HIV increased in frequency in the population around the time of the Black Death.

Scott and Duncan suggest that those who carried the CCR5Δ32 allele (and especially those who were homozygous) were more resistant to whatever organism caused this pandemic, similar to what we see with HIV–and that these resistant individuals survived the Black Death at higher rates than their countrymen who didn't carry the mutation, thus driving up the frequency of the CCR5Δ32 allele in the population.

Moreover, it has been shown that CCR5Δ32 does not confer protection against Yersinia pestis, the presumed causative agent of the Black Death but does confer some protection against viral haemorrhagic diseases like Ebola. This mutation is exceedingly rare in the African population.

So the evidence would suggest that individuals who have the CCR5Δ32 may be protected against Ebola.

Now what has agitated my mind since the first reports of the outbreak which is now officially the worst in history is: Why now? Why here? Historically outbreaks of Ebola have been in Central and East Africa. Never reported in West Africa until now. How did Ebola get to West Africa? What exactly is going on?

Are we in the midst of some sort of experiment in biological population control? Recall that HIV has largely failed to affect West Africa the same way it did to East and Southern Africa.

Just some thoughts.

Health / Re: Salaries Of Doctors And Other Health Workers In Some Countries by aletheia(m): 4:08pm On Jul 12
prettyprettywow: You forgot that these are salaries of specialist Doctors(consultants) with over 12yrs of education and average of $300k in student loan (for US Drs) as compared to the salaries of an entry level nurse ( 4yrs degree and less than $50k student loanfor US graduates)). You fail to realize that in US, resident Drs earn an average of $45k, quite below the salary of the least hospital worker. So when they say Drs aern 200k, know that they are talking about consultants, and if you wanna compare with nurses, talk about nurse practitioners where some specialist nurse practitioners earn more than some specialist Drs e.g Anaesthetic nurses (CRNA) earn more than family physicians. Our Drs want to reap where they did not sow.

Besides, nobody is asking to earn same salary as Drs. That has never been the issue
What do you understand by the word "Average"?

Health / Re: Surgeon General? President Jonathan; Do The Needful Or Tender Your Resignation by aletheia(m): 6:55pm On Jan 06
The appointment of the Surgeon-General of the Federation is a done deal. JOHESU or whatever else they call themselves cannot stop it. Their arguments against it are downright hilarious and filled with untruths and show a poor comprehension of basic English. But we can't really expect better from a conglomeration of some vocal frustrated half-baked doctor wannabes.

Let's clear some misconceptions:

1. No nurse or pharmacist has ever been the Surgeon-General of the United States. That office has always from inception to present all 18 times been headed by a Physician.

2. The US Surgeon-General is the operational head of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps (PHSCC) and thus the leading spokesperson on matters of public health in the federal government of the United States.

3. Because of it's history, the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps (PHSCC) is organized like a military organization, which is why the US Surgeon-General bears the rank of Rear Admiral. However, officially, they are designated non-combatant.

4. A lot of what has been written here by JOHESU members concerning the US Surgeon-General confuses the Surgeon-Generals of the US Armed Forces with that of the Surgeon-General of the United States

Wikipedia: In the United States and many areas of British Commonwealth, the title of Surgeon General refers to a physician commissioned by the government and entrusted with public health responsibilities. The post originated in the 17th century, as military units brought their own doctors. Thus, in the United States, the chief public health officer is the Surgeon General of the United States and each state has its own State Surgeon General. Moreover, each branch of the American military services has its own surgeon general, with more combat-related responsibilities and experience, hence Surgeon General of the United States Army, Surgeon General of the United States Navy, and Surgeon General of the United States Air Force.

JOHESU and their agents should note that the above reference mentions the British Commonwealth of which Nigeria is part. The appointment of the Surgeon-General (or Chief Medical Officer) whichever title is finally agreed on is long overdue. And yes it refers to Physicians not Pharmacists, not Nurses, not Lab Scientists etc.

courage54: Misplaced priority ..... This is what we get when vision less pple are in power! Is it the surgeon general that will fix the dilapidated medical facilities dat we have in our shambo public hospitals? Or d duties of d surgeon general will still cut across treating of our old parents in villages dat don't have good health care centre? Only God will save us in dis country.

It is a step in the right direction. Fixing hospitals is good but the general misconception abounding in Nigeria is that you need advanced state-of-the-art hospitals and equipment to achieve better health indices; to reduce maternal mortality and infant mortality and raise life expectancy of Nigerians. Not so.

More than 90% of the health problems of Nigeria can be solved by strengthening Primary Care. A case in point is Cuba versus the United States. Cuba spends per capita about $168 on health compared to the United States which spends more than $4500 per capita, and it is widely acknowledged that Cuba has one of the best healthcare systems in the worls, outranking the United States on nearly all health indices. They were able to achieve this by ensuring universal health coverage, and doing things like universal access to clean drinking water etc. These sort of initiatives fall within the purview of Public Health.

There is no coherent Public Health direction or policy in Nigeria. The appointment of a Surgeon-General goes a long way towards ensuring that by providing leadership and direction for Public Health in Nigeria.

ilugunboy:
Yes...because that election opened our eyes....no more pretense about political sophistication. We are dealing with people that uses ethnicity and religion as main campaign tool.
And the "power must return to the North" brigade that have been singing that song since the end of OBJ's first term are not using "ethnicity and religion as main campaign tool"?

To address the topic of this thread. The issue of the core North versus the Middle-Belt cannot be simplistically subsumed under the rubric of "Christian Northerners". That betrays a failure to understand the nuances of the relationship between these 2 regions, a failure to take into consideration history that predates 1914. Just as it is in Yorubaland, and among the Igala and to some extent the Nupe, a lot of the Middle-Belt ethnicities have within their families adherents of Islam, Christianity and Traditional religions. And for them, religion is not in the forefront in terms of ethnic identity.

It is only the political leaders of the Hausa people who have used religion as a means of social mobilization; who regard all other Nigerians (and this includes Muslims of other Nigerian ethnicities) as infidels and inferior. Why else do you think it is only in the North that we have witnessed targeted religious riots that have killed other Nigerian ethnicities? This is largely because for the Hausa, unlike most other Nigerian ethnic groups, religion became a substitute for ethnic identity. The Fulani overlords following Dan Fodio's conquest successfully stamped out independent Hausa culture and history, replacing it with religion as a way of preventing their overthrow.

Whether the Middle-Belt votes for GEJ in 2015 or not will depend on the configuration of the main opposition ticket. In any case, as they say "a week is a long time in politics" and any prognostications at this point may well be off the mark. Perhaps GEJ might even be the APC candidate. . .after all, PDP has just completed the takeover of APC.

Actually it is in the patient's best interests. Privatizing will impose efficiency and raise standards. It will also cut down on the strikes in the health sector. As an example, try visit Garki Hospital in Abuja and compare it's efficiency with Asokoro or Maitama District Hospitals. Garki is run according to PPP arrangement. There you will find doctors (even Consultants) and nurses at work 24 hours unlike in the public hospitals when absenteeism is high and you have rude and incompetent nurses.
