    The way I look at what seems to be a sudden spike in new cases is by putting it side by side a sudden dramatic spike in the daily tests number. Close to 9,000 tests have been performed in a 24-hr period which used to be just around 3-4 thousand. It shows Dr. Lia and her teams are chasing the virus by upping the ante in the number of daily tests. This uptick is also the result of the totally irresponsible behavior of those bigots who are now locked up where they belong. Who in his right mind incite the gullible youth to go out into the streets unprotected to kill and pillage? I want to see this uptick in the new cases to be included in what these conniving bigots are charged with. The charge also MUST include murder using biological weapon(weapon of mass destruction) which is banned by the Geneva Convention. What Ayman al-Zawahiri could not accomplish these smart aleck bigots have done on those harmonious, peace mongering, upright and generous people. Damn, damn, damn, damn, damn, damn you bigots!!! You will burn in hell!!!

    Al Jazeera and other media channels have reported that dogs can be used to detect COVID19. In Chile, Germany and many other countries, police sniffer dogs are trained for this purpose. Chile’s police estimates that each dogs can test 250 persons per hour.

    You, Borkena, wrote last year that 400 sniffer dogs were imported to Ethiopia. Where are these dogs now? Will they be used to fight the pandemic?

    Please see the report by Al Jazeera: youtube.com/watch?v=yyC0s69pK2k .

    Kind regards!
