Please what is ori?
Regarding Garlic and ginger, I believe the Chinese eat it more than most other races yet they were not immune from the virus. I doubt it can prevent this virus.

Ori is shear butter

I was trolling and doing banter I didn't mean what I said about those items.

I was just highlighting some of the WhatsApp broadcast I have received in the past week. Some say dogon yaro etc some say you will find a strand of hair in Qur'an, you soak it in water and drink.

A lot of misinformation going round.

NHS Doctors & Nurses, are not soldiers..... I don't think anyone signed up to die (like the Army).... PPE's are also so inadequate.... Feels like sending people to an AK47 war, with a bread knife.....

Totally understand what you mean and it feels like it's a taboo to even voice these fears as people actually believe the job = acceptance of all the risks including death.

There's an American nurse who's boss put her to work on the floor with covids and the lady said she's not doing again. She received a lot of abuse online.
I know those responses are also as a result of fear.

Shaa no one is safe,if you're not one of the "die for my country type" ,just know when to time your retreat.

No be only you waka come.

Stay safe.

Thanks, I tried it last night and it seemed to make a difference. I have been having symptoms of COVID-19 (like most of us grin), new cough, sore throat, which flares up at night. I was able to sleep better last night after applying it to my nose before going to sleep.

I’m most appreciative of health workers right, but no I don’t agree with this sentiment. Soldiers didn’t sign up to die, they signed up to fight a war, if they die, they die. Same with docs, you signed up cos you’re passionate about treating and curing people (irrespective of that you’re treating/curing), so if you get infected along the way, sorry- it’s the job.

My dad has a health condition and is a doc in Nigeria. If they recall retired staff, he will go back and fight And all I’ll do is cry. Because it’s his job! I know how my mum almost ran mad when AIDS started in Nigeria, she thought he would catch it by touching a patient. It’s the risk of the job.

My tip: catch it, so at least you will rest. I have a health condition and I didn’t die, so you most likely won’t.

Abeg let be careful of spreading wrong information. This is a new virus and nobody know how to cure it or deal with it yet other than washing hands and social distance to avoid the spread

You are so right, the chinese eat a lot of Garlic and ginger but although they hid the true number of deaths I think they have the record of death from coronavirus

Me I’m so tired of all the BCs my mum has been sending me: “stand naked in the middle of the road and you won’t catch it”, “lick the tails of an antelope, and you won’t catch”, “drink spring water from Judah, and you will be cured..”

I don tire. If I post my DM, you’ll pity me. I’m tired of having to explain to people that there’s no cure or treatment. And that they don’t need to go to the hospital (because that’s what’s putting undue pressure on doctors/nurses).

The misinformation is terrible!

Soldiers sign up to protect the country not to fight wars... if they die? a bit crude but hey

doctors sign up to treat people not to get infected- Especially if something can be done for them to get as much protection from the virus as possible-if they all fall sick, what will happen to the rest of us?

Exactly. My point is that none signed up to die, they signed up for other reasons but death/infection is a risk.

We need to protect them. Thats why I’ve been sensitising the public to stay home and treat. I should have remained in the hospital but I insisted on being discharged. If everyone can stay home and not contract it or stay home and treat it, we are less likely to infect our first line of defence (medics).

That being said, what you said goes both ways. If they don’t fight to save people, it may still spread and catch their family. That’s why soldiers defend their country; if they don’t, it will into the country and they will still lose their loved ones.

Hello house trust u guys are keeping safe? Please I need y advice I am confused. I and my wife remarried this year in Nigeria, she left to UK and promised applying for me when she gets bk, just for her to call me and said that the hospital she works is not allowing agency, that government said that agency is cheating on govt and not paying their taxes. So I asked her what she wants to do, she said she wants to start full permanent job by March and I have to wait for six-months for her to fill my papers. I said ok. Just for me to ask her yesterday, she told me that she is not working, staying at home bc of the covid. I was confused. She said some of her colleagues are affected with the virus, so I don't know if she is scared to go to work or because of her sugar problem. I am confused. How can she bring me to UK if she is not working. Kindly advise me. Thank you.

She must have been here awhile to be able to work for agencies alone, if she came back to Nigeria to remarry you then please trust whatever she said. Some nhs trusts are not allowing agency's staff because they move around a lot and they can bring whatever they are exposed to in Trust A to Trust B etc. Some Trusts allow only Bank Staffs that are not working elsewhere. She needs your support whatever the reason for not going to work.
Some friends that are going to work, do so with doubts and fear, not knowing if they have been exposed in one way or the other.
The government and the Society is trying to encourage them because they know if the healthcare staff strenght breaks then we are all doomed.

In addition to what soknown said , it appears ur wife has a medical condition that makes her high risk in this covid era.
I have colleagues that been asked to shield at home for next three month so they don't catch anything.
Relax ur mind , be supportive and pray this drama ends soon.

I expect them to be paid in full since it's a government directive. I can't be absolutely certain till April pay day since it's a recent change.

From information available on google, it is a charity and not an NHS hospital although they work with the NHS. You need to communicate better with your spouse so you will stop suspecting each other. Why don't you focus on your job in Nigeria and plan to visit her and vice versa pending when the visa issue is resolved?
