he was brought to the hospital in Kenya !, but there they were at the end of the medical art and so he is now in India !!!! for treatment.
The government is silent.
He is an enlightened gentleman who warns of the Wazungus' (white people) vaccination campaigns, recommends that his countrymen pray a lot and eat well to protect themselves from Corona, and has declared his country Corona-free by presidential decree.
Oh Africa,you will never get it :cry:

It seemed to be catching last year...
In every case it was ineffective.

The political oppositions take on it and apparently the source for the story.

Because after all, shutting down countries indefinitely, destroying your economy, paying people not to return to work indefinitely and telling everyone they must fear covid and listen to the government at all times makes much more sense

then I recommend you to stay with the prayers.
In our neighboring country, the Czech Republic, the lights are going out in the hospitals.
A hunting friend there is not getting his long overdue surgery because all intensive care beds are overcrowded with covid patients.
These have a 7 day incidence of almost 900 !!!!
For comparison, Germany has 72 cases of infection and we go crazy with them.
Take care,stay safe.

I'd much rather have my countries economy in tatters (temporarily) than have sick people walking around that don't follow basic health guidelines and have poor hygiene. For all the shit Africa gets, the cliche of people spreading disease has a lot of truth.

“Temporarily” went from 21 days to indefinitely and still continues. It will be interesting to see how and which economies actually fully recover. The businesses that have already gone bankrupt will not.

Human lives are more important than the economy. Not saying small businesses don't matter, they absolutely do, but you have to remember that this pandemic never had to happen in the first place. The reason it got so out of hand is due to first-world countries' ineptitude and sense of immortality, now the whole world is paying the price and I don't want one of my neighbours (Tanzania) to become a hot spot.

I’m sure you have a completely nonsensical explanation for this that makes perfect sense to you

I don't need to explain anything, it's common knowledge. How is it that Africa had significantly fewer Covid cases and deaths than either America or Europe? Snarky comments like yours don't provide anything to a discussion.

Easy . . . yours died from car crashes, old age, pneumonia, chronic illness. Ours died from all the same reasons too except dying with covid was marked as dying of covid. We also tested a much greater number of people. Covid isn’t going away, we need to live our lives. Governments taking more and more of your freedoms isn’t going to make things better.

Freedom freedom freedom. It's such a regurgitated argument. Your country is no freer than mine. You're likely confusing higher living standards with freedom. Is South Africa a shit hole? Absolutely, but America having fewer gun laws than any other country doesn't make it any freer. The fact that Covid was even made into a political topic is laughable. There's nothing political about a disease.

"We also tested a much greater number of people," I've heard this argument almost too many times. No one has given me any evidence to support it. India has over 1 billion people in total and has done more covid tests than yours has. And even with their huge number of cases, they still have less than your country does. Considering it took several weeks before America did anything to halt covid, I don't believe a thing that comes out of their politicians' mouths.

"Covid isn't going away," neither has the Bubonic Plague, a disease that wiped out over a third of Europe's entire population. It was from this plague that the term 'quarantine' was invented. If it weren't for those quarantines, you and I likely wouldn't be here as Europe's ethnicities would've gone extinct.
"we need to live our lives," How is wearing a mask preventing you from doing that? What exactly is so petrifying about putting a piece of fabric over your nose and mouth? The quarantines will obviously end until the majority of the world is vaccinated. After that life will mostly go back to normal. It happened with the Spanish Flu so I don't see how it wouldn't happen with Covid.

Other than that, I think it's best to agree to disagree.

WilhelmM your country is as free as ours cause we had kick the shit out of you to make you realize how important freedom Is!Very easy to slip back into socialism! It’s the non thinker’s remedy!You brush off people losing their businesses like it’s just a speed bump.Drug over doses,suicides and abuse have skyrocketed. Maybe we all should be pointing our fingers at China instead of each other. See you at October fest!

You bring Spanish flu up....to put numbers in perspective with world population then compared to now....could be wrong as mathematics is alien to me...but you would have to have 70,000,000 deaths with this chinese shit storm to be the equivalent now comparedto 1918/19...slightly different me thinks....the pandemics of 1958/9 and 1969 had similar amount of deaths possibly more but with yet again lower world wide populations...and in none of these was the whole fkn world shut down....so ....

This really shows you haven't a clue....lives are more important than the economy....ok so how many lives are going to be fkd by lockdowns...how many lives are going to be gone due to suicide caused by lockdown...how many lives are lost because medical treatment has been stopped for patients with immediate critical issues...how many lives are being destroyed due to mental illness caused by lockdown....you are so naive ....fk me....you sound like some of your SA ministers I get sent video clips of....spouting inane crap...fkn hell.......

I went through both 1958 and 1969 pandemics and got the flu - the first one was the worst, think I may have built up some immunity for the second. There were no masks handwashing distancing quarantines etc but we survived, the only difference being covid-19 has lasted longer, that's why I suspect it was engineered.

I knew my comments would eventually rile someone up. Spike.t, FYI, my family is entirely self-employed, meaning that I would know what it was like for those failing businesses. My father runs a reputable but small rod-making company, for several months he was forbidden to do business with any clients overseas. I think I'd know more about the financial stresses of lockdown than you would, considering you run a highly reputable and, I assume, successful safari outfit. No hard feelings, I'm very fond of you, but wind your neck in.

When it comes to suicide and depression caused by Covid, I myself have suffered from clinical depression since the end of 2018. 2020 was almost the breaking point for me, though not due to Covid specifically. It's why I joined AH in the first place. Listen, I know you're trying to look out for people who are unfortunate, but you really don't have a clue what's like to feel depressed. Though I may be entirely wrong on that, if so wrong then I apologize in advance. Even then, I'd much rather be in lockdown than have millions of terminally-ill people die from a *MOSTLY* nonlethal disease.

"how many lives are lost because medical treatment has been stopped for patients with immediate critical issues," My grandmother, though obviously old and wouldn't likely live for very long regardless, probably would've died from covid even if none of my family members showed any symptoms for covid. It's mostly due to her stupid life decisions, like being a life-long smoker since 20 years of age. Even then, a surprising death in the family wouldn't be fun in the slightest. A few months after lockdown, she was diagnosed with dementia caused by her idiotic heavy smoking.

"you sound like some of your SA ministers I get sent clips of," Oh yes, because stating an unconventional opinion is obviously the equivalent of not knowing how to count? Come on, let's be civilized here. Other than that, I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
