    It took 6 months for the total confirmed cases to reach the 10,000 mark. Considering the size of the country’s population, where an extended family of 3 generations living in the same house is commonplace, where sanitation and the means for sanitation is tight, where the only way people manifest their affection is by hugging and kissing and in a country where the health care system is rudimentary by even by middle income countries I say the over qualified daughter/sister of ours H.E. Dr. Lia Tadesse and her team have been doing a prize worthy job until these punk rockers and bigots threw a wrench at her indefatigable effort. O you, you, you you bigots!!! You will burn in hell!!!

    Btw, what is going on in the states California, Texas, Florida, Arizona, Georgia and Tennessee? My understanding is except Arizona those are the states where most members of our Diaspora live. There hasn’t been any report to tell us how they have been doing. With the flu season ahead of us in just about two months this specter is going to get worse even deadlier. From the latest status report and projection an effective vaccine may not be available for inoculation until the beginning of 2021. We should all remember that the best flu shot is between 10 and 60% effective depending on the year it is administered. So please stay vigilant and follow the mitigating protocol strongly advised by the scientists. May The Almighty Our Creator Protect Us!!!!!
