Everyone is now a health expert.
I am not aware of any country being ruled by WHO even in normal time.
Think of WHO as a charity organization.
Their primary work is organizing and coordinating health responses and information.
The membership is voluntary and requires nothing.

They don't owe you vaccine, medicine, or any cure.
They are not some world government with military power to enforce rules on countries.

These reps are merely playing to the gallery of the misinformed populace.
If lockdown was still in place, they would still be traveling abroad to treat headache despite
the many local herbs alternatives we have on the ground.

None of these reps will sign up for a new herbs trial if infected.

naijanative:
Two weeks quarantine requirement is just to wait to see if the infected will start having symptoms. Unfortunately, many are asymptomatic, and never show signs of the disease throughout infection period.

The best thing to do is to repeat the test after a few days, 3-5 days, anyone infected will test positive to PCR test, whether symptomatic or asymptomatic. This should be standard. UK's isolation time is even one week.

We in Nigeria copy and do dumb things.
Nigeria is doing the right thing.
Not everything you read online is true.

All diagnostic tests come with limitations especially the "rapid" ones.
Left to me, the returnees will be forced into 28 days quarantine because
the consequence of an error is very high.

you think we can neglect what bill can do, bcoz of this your comment. the secret truth is that bill already have this vaccine before the pandemic and will bring it out the moment he succeed in passing the bill.
He doesn't have a vaccine and would never do.
If he contracts Coronavirus, he will likely not survive it himself.

Most of you don't understand anything about a vaccine but still won't shut up.
You think a vaccine is just magic that you can conjure up with big money.

There is no bill in the US, India, Indonesia, China, Latin America, and
Europe wh house most of the population in the world but somehow,
a third world country and poverty stricken country is the most important to the "anti-christ".
How dumb could such a devil be?

Let me give you another secret:
Bill Gates is the third-largest contributor to WHO.
This means all HIV drugs, Some children Malaria drugs, Snake Antivenoms,
Newborn and adult vaccines are subsidized by his "devilish" money.

With the revelation above, you have more work to do.
You need to start telling people to stop taking all those subsidized drugs and
always ask for the most expensive variants.

Now, get to work!

The WHO is insiting that there is no other solution than a vaccine.

Bill Gates has the vaccine already.

He would since the vaccine was created side-by-side the virus.

The reason for this global pandemic is to force you to get Bill Gates ID2020 which he will administer on you after you take the mandatory vaccine for CoVid-19.

5G is the network that will be deployed to use to track and monitor your every move.

Billy boy also has a special crypto-currency that will be tied into his own special social credit score. This will be your new and only means of money.

So at the end Bill Gates intends the following:

1. Use the vaccine to sterilize unwanted populations to which your africanus ass falls on top of the pile of undesirable breed.

2, Use your vaccination as a means of identification utilizing his ID2020 digital implant chip.

3. Unveil a digital currency to be used by those having the ID2020. This currency will be tied to a social credit scheme similar to what they are doing in China. You misbehave, you lose all your social credit coins.


Where is the WHO vaccine?
Who has been forced to take the non-existent vaccine?

I can sense fear all over the OP's body.
A fearful mind cannot reason.

When some Northerners rejected the polio vaccine, they were termed illiterates and mocked.

But when some people believe they are going to be forced to take a vaccine that
doesn't exist and may never exist by a man that can't make one, they call themselves "smart".

What an irony.

You are making excuses for criminals.
These kinds of guys robbed people, looted and burned shops because of South African's xenophobic attacks last year.
Was there a lockdown then?

You should be grateful that they are being removed from the street.

Bro some in economics..they say the law of demand states that when prices go up the quantity demanded of goods and services will go down...it's tru..and very correct,......but what most people don't know is that you will fail the definition of law of demand if you write that in an exam

Reason is that the definition lacks a major ingredient..which is " all things being equal"...that alone has change the scope of the definition... Cuz in reality of the study of social science,all things are never equal.....
What's all this?
It seems you have been so confined to classrooms that you cannot reason out of it.
I just saw your question about "cash crops", do you think this is an exam hall?


This is the same way, capitalist tell you that create the right policies... Investors will com and better your economy...this is very tru for a country that has other things being equal..like good financial system, good legal framework, attractive capital flight policies, etc.. But in Nigeria where these things are not in place....even if you keep tax rate at 0% ,they will still not com.....and domestic investors are too uneducated or poor to invest in such ventures.......so in that case,what does governmt do....wait forever?..…..

You just confirmed my suspicion. Everything you know comes from what people "tell you".
Parroting elementary and unoriginal viewpoints as if they are some divine creed does not portray you in a good light.

Now, let us leave the classroom and go to the real world.
If domestic investors are shunning real investment in certain sectors, it is either they are getting free money
(via government subsidies) elsewhere or they see problems that you can't understand.

Local investors are neither poor nor uneducated in any real sense.

Rather than trying to solve the real problems that are keeping investors away, you advocate
for flushing more money down the drain in doomed ventures that the government cannot manage.


No they shld reach out and create those critical industries Needed to grow the economy..and thereafter they can privatize them.....

Akwa-ibom state government has established 8 productive firms....and employed their indegenes nd then solved a problem of unemployment in their state to an extend... The rest gov.are building road since 99'. Leme tell you,graduates prefer employment opportunity to good express road....

Guy don't always live on Norms and tradition cuz desperate times they say calks for desperate measures

The "norms" are for countries primarily engaged in export of extractive commodities to subsidize the populace and
create failed industry they had no idea about managing.
What you get is largely entitled and unskilled populace.

Akwa-Ibom established subsidy-funded firms that rely entirely on the state's allocation.
How much was invested to start the firms?
Can the firms pay their own workers' salaries from the generated profits if any?
How much does the firms generate for the government?

Those "productive" firms will still get budgetary allocations to keep them afloat because they are mere vanity
projects.
It is possible that one becomes buoyant in the short term but that is a bug and not by design.

What Akwa-Ibom government did was to create a semblance of starting an industry in order to create employment.
People love such gestures and are happy that the government is "doing its job".
They didn't understand that it comes at a cost.

NNPC is running at a loss, year in year out despite private OCs turning profits for their shareholder.
That is in a sector that some countries are successfully managing.

Yet, you want a country that can't manage an oil company to start setting up industries.

What your so-called graduate wants are irrelevant.
Most of them shouldn't have been admitted in the first place as they had no business getting a tertiary
education.

But due to the myopic government thirst for subsidizing unproductive sectors, every Dick and Harry
can get admission and graduate with no useful skill nor experience for surviving in the real world.
Unfortunately for the government, it lacks the finance to place its undeserving graduates on lifetime subsidies
leading to an unprecedented unemployment rate.

We won't come out of this mess until the destructive subsidy policies are removed.

The only people that should get tertiary education are those who can afford it or merit a scholarship.

Now, let us revisit countries that have emerged from rots.
China didn't develop by mass graduating and mass employing graduates.
It did by enforcing meritocracy such that only students who deserve tertiary education get admitted.
This was accompanied by the rapid development of infrastructure that attracted investors.
We can all see the results today.

Does the government have other roles to play?
Of course.

China enrols about half of its post-secondary school students in vocational education.
Germany also has a similar policy where educationally challenged students are automatically
assigned to vocational schools.

Graduates are not the ones making iPhones in China, it is the less educated.

Also, the government should be a major player in the defense and health sector not because they can turn a profit
but for the sake of saving lives.

You talk about privatizing such firms. Who do you think will take over aside from government friends who will demand
more subsidies in order to keep it running.

If there is real money to be made in a sector, investors(local or foreign) will come in and outcompete the government in a short period.

Any country that always gets into trouble because of a drop in certain commodity prices is headed for trouble.
regardless of how sophisticated or impoverished they look to outsiders.
