COVID 19 Ethiopia update: 7 new recovery, still no more death reported

COVID 19 Ethiopia update _ May 1

May 1, 2020 

Ethiopia’s Ministry of Health confirmed on Friday that two more new COVID 19 cases. About 912 samples were tested over the past twenty-four hours.

The new patients (both male and under 25 years of age) were confirmed in Moyale and Jijiga, Oromo regional state, and Somali regional states respectively. They had a recent travel history to Kenya and Puntland, based on information from the Ministry of Health, and they were in a mandatory quarantine for two weeks. On Thursday, one patient was confirmed in Bahir Dar.

The Ministry has also announced that there are seven new cases of recovery which makes the total recovery case 66. Registered death is stagnant at 3. 

62 patients are in the treatment centers across the country. 

There does not seem to be a life threatening case as no patients are in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).  So far Ethiopia has tested a total of 18,754 samples from suspected individuals over the past two months. 

Despite challenges to enforcing some of the prevention methods like social distancing – something that is flouted even after Ethiopia declared a state of emergency -, Ethiopia has done very well so far.

What appears to be useful from the experience so far is that regulation that requires all travelers arriving in the country to have two weeks of mandatory quarantine. 

The majority of the confirmed COVID 19 cases in the country relate to those who had a travel history after the Coronavirus turned out to be a pandemic. 

The Global Coronavirus confirmed case is fast approaching 3.4 million of which 2.067 million represents an active case, as reported by World Meter on May 1, 2020.  The number of deaths is 239,278, and the recovery case is said to be 1,077,894.

  1. So far so good. The over qualified H.E. Dr. Liya bint Tadesse is doing a heck of a job. All honor to our daughter/sister!!! Those demonic Wahhabis in the Arabian Peninsula are working overtime to make her efforts unbearable by sending back thousands of her countrymen/women without any information about their status regarding COVID-19. With more than a trillion US dollars their fat behind is sitting on, they did not even try to test these citizens they have been exploiting like slaves. Majority of them were working like there in no tomorrow without pay for months. They are sending them back after confiscating everything they have. Do you call these possessing human character/values? They are not sending back just 10 or 20 but in their thousands. In one way they did not surprise me because I know these scums from close quarters. This is nothing but biological warfare on our old country by these incubators/financiers of terrorist groups. I want everyone of our younger generation to take down notes/names of this evil behavior. Sometime during your lifetime our old country will be able to do away with the abject poverty that has been dragging our proud people for centuries and you should be able to stand up to these barbarians toe to toe. I am telling you these savages will never change even 50 or 100 years from now. You will find them walking around with a 21st century body but with the 7th century mental capacity/thought process. They are now waging a biological warfare on the old country. They are sending thousands of our citizens after infecting them with this deadly virus. Just take a note. Take down names now!!!
