COVID-19 Can Be Transmitted Through Air – DG NCDC Ihekweazu
Chikwe Ihekweazu
Chikwe Ihekweazu, the Director-General of the Nigeria Center for Disease Control NCDC, has revealed that COVID-19 can be transmitted through air and has urged citizens to wear face masks and adhere to other non-pharmaceutical protocols like avoiding mass gatherings, practicing social distancing and maintaining hand hygiene by washing of hands.

Ihekweazu revealed this while speaking during the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 briefing in Abuja today July 13.

He said, “Over the past few weeks, increasing evidence has emerged that in addition to droplet infection, we cannot rule out that airborne transmission is also possible as a mode of transmission of COVID-19.

“The World Health Organization (WHO) has updated its guidelines on this saying exactly the same thing, that we cannot rule out airborne transmission. Therefore, we have to act in a precautionary way assuming that this is also possible given the new evidence that is emerging.

“This means that staying together in closed spaces and clusters such as in restaurants and in small rooms with very poor ventilation increases the risk of transmission.

“Indoor activities are riskier than outdoors activities especially when there are many people in the room when we don’t adhere to distancing them and when we don’t wear masks.” he said

He said fighting between a million soldiers took place where Burst men were trying to rescue the boy who was attacked by the group hiding in an abandoned house in the area.

Despite allegations that some members were next to his master's body, Oladipo declared that the operation was over Ebila's killing, injuring some members and the fact that he stole a survivor.

Oladipo urged residents of the state not to fret on living in a peaceful environment, assuring that Operation Burst will continue to be in the vanguard in security and ensuring the safety of lives and properties in the state.

Prior to Sunday’s killing of Ebila by men of Operation Burst, Enwonwu said the One Million Boys gang leader had evaded arrest by the Oyo State police command on three occasions.

He said the late Ebila had since April 11 been on the wanted list of the Oyo State Police Command over the killing of the leader of a rival cult group, Moshood Oladokun, popularly called Ekugbemi.

He cautioned residents to ignore the assumption that COVID-19 was not genuine, and was merely an avenue for the government to make money.

“For now, people should avoid visiting the hospital except for life-threatening issues. We advise people to engage in e-health service instead of physical consultation to avoid contact as much as possible.

Nigeria Loses N2.5t To Fraud, Says Forensic Body

Nigeria Loses N2.5t To Fraud, Says Forensic Body
Illustration Photo
The Society for Forensic Accountants and Fraud Prevention (SFAFP) has said that the national budget loses N2.5 trillion annually to fraud and corruption in the public sector.

Speaking at a weekend virtual induction of 192 associates, SFAFP Chairman Iliyasu Gashinbaki said the continent was losing about 25 per cent of annual budgets to these infamous schemes.

Gashinbaki promised the society would help plug the leaks.

SFAFP identified 10 most common schemes under which state officials bled the country as illegal use of public assets for private advances; underpayment of export and import taxes and duties.

Some, it said, were fraud and embezzlement; payment of wages to ghost workers; bribery and extorsion; payment for air supply (goods or services not given or rendered); over and under-invoicing; fraudulent court awards of financial compensation over the harm suffered.

The state, he said, will provide professional assistance to both the private and public sectors.

He said the leakage was not unique to Nigeria as it affects other countries in Africa.

"Recent reports have shown that most African governments are coping with the immense debt burden, in addition to large revenue losses due to bribery and corruption that are continuously sucking out their meager resources.

Coronavirus Is A 'Multi-Organ Killer' And Some Survivors 'May Never Recover'

Coronavirus Is A 'Multi-Organ Killer' And Some Survivors 'May Never Recover'
Coronavirus
Coronavirus is a multi-organ killer and some patients will never recover entirely because the long-term health consequences may be much worse than they anticipated, doctors and researchers claim.

Former Italian patients, including those suffering from a mild infection, have tended to experience "chronic injury" with conditions such as paranoia, insomnia, kidney failure, spinal infections, strokes, chronic fatigue and mobility issues.

Separate studies have found that Covid-19 can cause significant and permanent heart and lung damage.

Doctors and researchers in Lombardy, one of the world's worst-hit regions and the epicenter of Italy's outbreak, told Sky News that the virus is a systemic infection that affects all organs and is not just a respiratory disease as once thought.

They say the former patients were unable to do physical activity, return to work or even concentrate while suffering from Covid-19's long-term effects.

The experts warned that all age groups are vulnerable and everybody should take precautions to stay safe, including social distancing, hand washing and wearing face coverings.

Dr Roberto Cosentini, head of emergencies at Papa Giovanni XXIII Hospital in Bergamo, told Sky News: "At first, initially, we thought it was a bad flu, then we thought it was a bad flu with a very bad pneumonia, it was the phase when you came here, but subsequently we discovered that it is a systemic illness with vessel damage in the whole body with renal involvement, cerebral involvement.

"So we are seeing other acute manifestations of renal failure that require dialysis; or stroke, and then acute myocardial infarction, so a lot of complications or other manifestations of the virus.

"And also now we see a significant proportion of the population with chronic damage from the virus."

COVID-19: Unilorin Ready For Resumption, Awaits FG's To Reopen Schools

COVID-19: Unilorin Ready For Resumption, Awaits FG's To Reopen Schools
University Of Ilorin 
 Authorities of the University of Ilorin have said that 70 per cent of lectures will be done virtually while only 30 per cent will be conducted physically when school resumes academic activities.

Speaking with newsmen in Ilorin, on Monday, the institution’s Director of Academic Planning, Professor Isaac Abiodun Adimula, said that academic activities would be conducted in such a situation that only a minimal number of students will participate in each of such lectures that will be briefly conducted with full adherence to the protocols governing physical interactions in a time like this.

“In preparation for the resumption of academic activities when the threat of the ravaging Coronavirus pandemic subsides, the management of the University of Ilorin has disclosed that it is working towards ensuring that lecturers and students have minimal physical contacts to halt the spread of the infectious disease”, he said.

Professor Adimula said that the plan is to ensure that teaching and laboratory practicals are done virtually.

The Director thanked the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof Sulyman Age Abdulkareem, for facilitating the release of the sum of N168 million for the provision of campus-wide internet, which, he said, would ensure that 75 per cent of the campus huge territory would have access to clear and easily accessible internet receptions.

He added that this is being done to ensure that students and their lecturers can effortlessly link up to virtual lectures and practical classes anywhere they are on the campus including their halls of residence. He said that is being done to prevent the convergence of students in particular locations in search of the internet.

Prof Adimula also commended the Vice-Chancellor for approving the training of three members of staff in Italy towards the smooth operations of the virtual learning enhancing equipment and systems being erected on the campus.

Explaining the practicability of the reduction of physical contacts in the course of transmission of knowledge on campus, particularly among indigent students, who do not have smart-phone and related hard wares, Prof Adimula disclosed that arrangement has also been concluded to install Smart-Boards of about 70 Centimetre in each of the Lecture Theatres to take care of such categories of students, who, he said, are not even many, to receive lectures as at when due.

While noting that attendance of participants would still be taken to ensure that the maximum percentage of lectures by students is sustained, the Director also disclosed that all the lectures delivered shall thereafter be deposited in the University repository to ensure that students who either needed one clarification or the other or those who missed such lectures have something to fall back to.

The Director, however, expressed the University management’s readiness to welcome its students back on campus for the resumption of academic activities and other related services as soon as the concerned authorities give the directive.

Prof Adimula explained that the University management was working round the clock to ensure that the University opens its gates to students as soon as the Federal Government issues the directive as he said that the campuses of the University would continue to be disinfected in order to ensure that the dreaded Coronavirus (COVID-19) disease has no place at the University.

The Director stated that the University’s Coronavirus Prevention Committee, under the leadership of Dr Adenike Durotoye of the University’s College of Health Sciences, has been on top of the game at ensuring that everything worth doing is done to halt the spread of the disease to all the campuses of the University.

He added that parts of the measures the University has taken are the constant messages being shared with the students of the institution on what they need to do to keep themselves safe and protected against the spread of the disease, saying that the University is confident and assured with the feedback trickling from all-over the country on the status of most of the students.

Prof. Adimula also cited the insistence of the authorities of the University, which makes it mandatory for everybody coming to the campus to put on their face mask as one of the measures that have also been put in place to ensure that the spread of the dreaded disease is halted.

He also explained that the University has erected hand-washing facilities in most of the strategic locations on the campuses of the institution, saying that each of the Lecture Theatres is having such a specially-built structure with the full complement of ceaseless running pipe-borne water, liquid soap and sanitiser in preparation for the resumption of academic activities.

Responding to another question, Prof. Adimula commended the students of the University for maintaining decorum throughout the challenges posed by the Coronavirus disease, saying that the University administration had not received any untoward information on any of its students since they were sent back home following the outbreak of the disease.

While he added that on the resumption of academic activities, the University has no plan to test its students for Coronavirus, he said that the University was working round the clock to make an isolation centre available for those who might develop symptoms of the disease as he said that the protocols of social distancing would be observed not only in the Lecture Rooms but in all the Hostels on campus.

Prof. Adimula hinted that all things being equal the challenges associated with the pandemic would not be allowed to negatively affect the enviable stable academic calendar of the University, pointing out that students who applied for one course of study or the other in the University would still be required to pass the University’s Post-UTME Test, which modality is still being worked on.

The don, who is a former Dean of the Faculty of Physical Sciences, thanked the Vice-Chancellor for the opportunity given him to serve as the Head of the institution’s strategic Unit, saying that the Academic Planning Unit, under his leadership, shall leave no stone unturned at ensuring that the University achieves its vision and mission as laid by its founding fathers with maximum quality of staff and minimum resources.

School Reopening: Private Schools Reject FG's Decision, Get Set To Participate In WASSCE

July 13, 2020 0
School Reopening: Private Schools Reject FG's Decision, Get Set To Participate In WASSCE
WAEC
The National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools (NAPPS) and the National Parents-Teachers Association of Nigeria (NAPTAN) have said private schools are set to  participate in the 2020 senior school certificate examination (SSCE) being conducted by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC).

It appealed to the federal government to reconsider its position on the matter.

Recall that the government had last week said no Nigerian school would participate in the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) earlier scheduled to hold from August 5 to September 5.

The Education Minister, Adamu Adamu, said the atmosphere is not conducive for the May/June diet of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination to hold in the country.

But the stakeholders described the latest position of the government as inconsistent and confusing.

The minister had on Wednesday announced the reversal of the government’s earlier position on schools’ resumption, saying the atmosphere is yet unsafe for teaching and learning in the country.

Mr Adamu’s position was based on the rising cases of coronavirus diseases in the country, saying children would find it difficult to observe the required protocols including social distancing, to keep themselves safe if allowed to return to schools.

Speaking about NAPPS position, the president, Yomi Otubela, in a telephone interview with PREMIUM TIMES, said private schools across the country are set to participate in the examination, noting that the required protocols as recommended by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) in the management of the coronavirus disease would be observed.

He said a formal appeal will be made to the minister on Tuesday, saying rather than blanket non-participation of Nigerian candidates in the examination, the government should set appropriate rules to guide the conduct of the examination and ensure strict compliance.

He said; “Our position is that all private schools are ready to write the WASSCE exams. We have already put in place all the necessary precautions and safety as advised by the NCDC. We are appealing to the education minister to reconsider his earlier position and allow the position of the stakeholders which is to allow the children to sit for the examinations to prevail.”

In a similar development, the national president of NAPTAN, Haruna Danjuma, said as critical stakeholders in the education sector, parents are uncomfortable with “conflicting positions constantly released by government officials over the state of schools amidst the coronavirus crisis.”

According to Mr Danjuma, the government’s inconsistency could be observed from the earlier position of the presidential task force on COVID-19 headed by the secretary to the government of the federation, which issued a directive on the possible resumption of schools.

He said; “Isn’t it the same government that made the earlier pronouncement that graduating classes should be permitted to sit their examinations? You see, everything is confusing. As parents, we are critical stakeholders in this whole issue but we are unaware of all these back and forth positions.

“We must note that apart from general papers such as Mathematics, English and Biology, we cannot have more than 200 candidates in most of the examination halls. Papers like Geography, Government, Literature-in-English, History, may not have more than 40 candidates in many centres. We are not saying schools should be opened for full classes, for God’s sake.

“But surprisingly, the same government has opened up markets, religious worship centres, airports, and also the interstate transits. So what are we talking about? If our children don’t sit for the SSCE, what will they hold to pursue admission into higher institutions? Surprisingly, most of these candidates had earlier sat for the unified tertiary matriculation examination. And JAMB has said results would be forwarded to the higher institutions by August.”

Meanwhile, WAEC has reacted on the development, saying it is within the legitimate power of governments of the five-member countries to make such decisions.

Earlier, in a telephone interview with PREMIUM TIMES, the WAEC’s Head of Nigeria’s Office (HNO), Patrick Areghan, said the examination body was still reviewing the situation and that it would make its position known soon.

He said; “We cannot make any categorical statement for now. We are operating in five-member countries and we cooperate with the government. We recognise the fact that the government has the right and power to take positions, and we cannot confront the government. We work hand in hand with the government.”

FG Releases New Guidelines For Reopening Of Schools (See Details)

FG Releases New Guidelines For Reopening Of Schools
Students
The Federal Government has released guidelines ahead of the planned resumption of schools at every level in the country, even as it failed to disclose dates.

According to Punch, the guidelines outlined actions, measures and requirements needed for the safe reopening of schools after the COVID – 19 pandemic.

According to the guidelines released by the Federal Ministry of Education in Abuja on Monday, the safe distancing measures in the new guidelines required that in schools and other learning facilities, learners should be supported to stay two meters apart.

The guidelines which was signed by the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu and Minister of State (Education), Hon. Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba was developed in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Environment, Federal Ministry of Health and health safety experts in the country.

The document reads, “However, there are exceptions where the two-meter rule cannot be reasonably applied and other risk mitigation strategies may be adopted. Examples include early years, younger primary school children, and those with additional needs.

“In these circumstances, risk assessments must be undertaken with the best interests of the learners, teachers, and other education personnel in mind. The scenarios require organizing learners and children into small groups with consistent membership and compliance with the risk mitigation strategies. The membership of these groups should not change unless the NCDC public health guideline suggests otherwise.”

With the release of the document, the government would conduct a rapid assessment and determine funding requirement for upgrading infrastructure and facilities (such as classrooms, furniture, Water, Sanitation and Hygiene-WASH and ICT facilities) to meet and sustain prescribed safe school reopening requirements.

The government said it was time for it to plan and address the eventual safe reopening of schools and learning facilities.

Recall that schools and all learning facilities were closed due to Coronavirus pandemic in order to safeguard the health and general wellbeing of children, youths, teachers and educational personnel.

The guidelines included a review of existing policies, practices, and risk mitigation strategies in the use of schools for other purposes, such as distance learn-ing centres, temporary shelters, isolation, quarantine and treatment centres, markets, voting centres, among others.

“COVID – 19 pandemic poses an enormous risk to the health and safety of learners, teachers, parents, school administrators, education practitioners, and the wider community…More than 1.5 billion children and young people globally have been affected by school and university closures.

“As a responsible government, it is also our duty to provide comprehensive guidelines for a safe and hitch-free reopening of schools and learning facilities. We do so knowing that the health, safety, and security of learners, teachers, education personnel, and families are priorities”, it stressed.

The guidelines dealt extensively on equitable plans for school reopening and operations, focusing on attendance, social distancing, hygiene, cleaning, and non-pharmaceutical interventions for safe and healthy school activities and programmes.

Adamu explained that the need to develop the guidelines became imperative, “given that COVID – 19 may be with us for a while.”

He said the guidelines also highlight the urgent need to maintain and improve upon distance-learning programs.

The Minister said, “Our aim is to identify and strengthen programmes that will guarantee the recovery of learning gaps resulting from the pandemic.

“The guidelines were drafted in close coordination with health, environmental, education, and school safety experts who were tasked with the responsibility of charting a pathway for safely reopening our schools and learning facilities for quality teaching and learning.”

The approach, according to him, ensured that stakeholders provided regular feedback throughout the process.

Adamu expressed gratitude to the Presidential Taskforce on COVID – 19, FMoH, Nigeria Centre for Disease Control and the Education in Emergencies Working Group in Nigeria for their support and contribution in the development of the guidelines.

Gorgeous Square Nail Designs To Print, the state of a fair square looks fantastic at every nail width and suits rotund handles. The delicate square has smoothed corners slightly, and suits most teens. 

Too restricted or trapezoidal nails could be a special case. Of course the square state of the nails can be considered all inclusive. At modified lengths, it looks equally excellent and, depending on the width of the nail plates, the thickness and length of the fingers, will take various minor distances from the nails.

The square-oval shape, or as it is called today – “squaw oval”, is an oval nail with sharp corners. The state of a ballet dancer or “pointe shoes” strangely consolidates a triangle and a square and looks exquisite on any nail plate. 

In the event that you despite everything think that its hard to settle on a decision, you can generally look for counsel from your lord.

[Series] Room 104: The Final Season 4 Review And Mp4 Trailer

[Series] Room 104: The Final Season 4 Review And Mp4 Trailer
Room 104
In “Room 104,” Bautista appears as a guest star, playing the character of a former pro wrestler called Raw Dog Avalanche who must confront trauma from his past during his motel stay.

HBO‘s acclaimed “Room 104” series will soon have no more vacancy. Created by Mark and Jay Duplass (HBO’s “Animals.” and “Togetherness”), the late-night, half-hour anthology series, which began back in 2017, is winding things down with a final season that begins in July.

Known for its versatility in genre and form—anthology series akin to Netflix’s “Black Mirror” and “The Twilight Zone” from CBS, “Room 104”— by its very premise, “Room 104” has given itself a lot of flexibility in the area of storytelling.

Instead of a “Twilight Zone,” each week’s cast enters the motel room in which some unique and often bizarre experience takes place. The genres encompassed to date have spanned such diverse angles as drama and comedy, fantasy, and science fiction. This season will feature a bunch of firsts: Room the show’s first episode executed in animation.

Offering new talent every week, “Room 104” has hosted a slew of familiar faces in the past such as Sarah Hay (2019’s “Extracurricular Activities”), Orlando Jones (“American Gods”), and Rainn Wilson from NBC’s “The Office.”

This season continues that trend featuring former SNL star Kevin Nealon, IJillian Bell, Susan Park, Gary Cole and wrestler-turned-actor/Marvel star Dave Bautista.

Bautista has become a familiar face in Hollywood blockbusters in recent years, his latest movie being “My Spy,” which is a mash-up of action and lighthearted comedy. Of course, his involvement in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with his portrayal of Drax the Destroyer is one of his most beloved performances. Not to mention, he’s slated for the highly-anticipated “Dune” remake.

In “Room 104,” Bautista appears as a guest star, playing the character of a former pro wrestler called Raw Dog Avalanche who must confront trauma from his past during his motel stay.

Mark and Jay Duplass return as producers, and Mark branches out into directing and original musical performance while co-starring in the episode “The Murderer.” This final season of “Room 104” begins airing Friday, July 24, and will be viewable via HBO and HBO Max. Watch the trailer below.
