Health / Inside Nigeria's Wet Markets, Lagos: Fears The Next Virus Could Come From Africa by evergreen9: 9:14am On Feb 20
Inside Nigeria's wet markets: Shocking footage reveals pangolins, sea turtles and monkeys being sold in Lagos both dead and alive - raising fears the next virus could come from Africa

Shocking footage seen by MailOnline reveals the appalling state of Nigerian wet markets which have the potential to cause future disease outbreaks in humans.

Myriad animals including pangolins, primates and sea turtles are held — both dead and alive — in confined spaces while workers fail to sanitise surfaces or tools and do not wear appropriate PPE, including gloves.

Video also shows many of the animals being abused before they are slaughtered; photographic evidence reveals vendors boiling animals including pangolins, dogs and manatees while they are still alive.

WildatLife, a charity working on the ground in Nigeria, visited Oluwu fish market in Epe, 55 miles east of Lagos.

The volunteers secretly recorded conditions at the market where vendors handle, butcher and sell live and dead animals.

'Wet markets like Oluwo Fish Market located in Nigeria, facilitate and heavily contribute to the practice of illicit wildlife trade and in turn, this practice can lead to the spread of zoonotic diseases,' WildatLife told MailOnline.

'Transportation of animals for wildlife trade at these markets enables the spread of diseases from animals to other animals and pose a threat to human health.'

Dozens of primates can be seen in the footage stuck in small cages while snakes, crocodiles, duikers, sea turtles, manatees, rodents and parakeets are also present.

'All animals are infected with something and only some are infectious to humans,' Professor Bennett explains.

'Having more animals in the same space and in close contact with each other makes it more likely something will emerge in humans.

'The more biodiverse an area/country is (in the tropics for example), the higher risk there is that something is going to emerge.

'There is an almost 100 per cent risk of something emerging in humans, but we can't predict where that will be or what that will be.'

It is thought SARS-CoV-2 jumped from a bat and into an intermediate species, potentially a pangolin, where it then evolved to be able to infect humans.

It is possible this intermediate animal would have then passed the virus on to a human who visited the market. If the transient host was indeed a pangolin, this could have happened when the infected pangolin's scales were ingested as a medicine or its meat was consumed.

I am confused right now @arrewa @thatfairguy, I thought Zulum and Northerners said the north is safe and Boko haram has been defeated? Also heard that those beaheaded were not farmers but Boko haram informant and now this news from A.I?

Who's telling the truth? If the North truly isn't safe then why do Northerners claim the North is safe? Are they sympathetic to the cause of Boko haram?

Education / Re: IELTS: Share Your Experience, Ask Your Questions, Tell Us Your Score If You Can. by evergreen9: 2:05pm On Oct 04, 2020

What I'll say is that as long as you're a native English Speaker, IELTS should be a walk in the park. I messed up during mine, especially my speaking session, stuttering at intervals and little grammatical errors, but still I made an 8.0 overall. If I should take the exam again, I'm 100% sure I'll hit the 8.5 overall band score.

Just practice with ieltsonlinetests.com to get familiar with question patterns, if you don't score well during practice, don't worry because the actual exam is a lot easier. Before taking my test, my highest band in Reading and Listening from online practice was 7.0 and 8.0 respectively. Both exams were so simple that was expecting a 9.0 band but I ended up with 8.5 each. Don't get yourself worked up, you'll be fine.

Watch all the tutorial videos on Ieltsliz.com. For the second task in the speaking part, I'll recommend Ieltsbuddy.com. You'll get to learn about a process that will enable you talk seamlessly within the alloted 2 minutes.

What type of questions are normally asked in the speaking test?

Travel / Re: Anyone Studying In Belgium? by evergreen9: 8:57pm On Oct 01, 2020

Tuition fees in Belgium vary between schools and courses. The average range is €4000 ‐ 10000. You can also get scholarships OR get tuition fee discounts from the school/faculty.

As for the blocked account, this also depends on your school. Because different schools have various amounts they expect you to block, ranging from €700 -1000 per month for 12 months.

So the 6M should be able to cover you if you get schools that are a bit cheaper. Also keep an eye on the naira/euro exchange rate so you can be better prepared.

Hi can I reach you through pm? please reply, thanks
