The Fact: ‘We Will Live with Covid19 for Months. Let’s not Deny it or Panic’- Dr. Faheem Younus
Dr. Faheem Younus is the Head of the Infectious Disease Clinic from the University of Maryland in America who usually tweets facts about Covid-19.
He dropped another tweet saying, “We will live with Covid19 for months. Let’s not deny it or panic. Let’s not make life unnecessarily difficult. Let us learn to be happy and live with that fact.”
According to him, the virus will not reduce its effect in the summer. It’s summer in Brazil and Argentina, but the virus is spreading rapidly. You cannot destroy Covid-19 viruses that have penetrated the cells by drinking too much water, you will just go to the toilet often.
However, washing your hands and keeping a distance of 1.8 meters is the best method of protecting against the virus. If you don’t have a Covid-19 patient at home, there is no need to disinfect the surfaces in the house.
Cargo packages, petrol pumps, shopping carts or ATMs do not cause infection. Wash your hands, live your life as usual. Covid-19 is not a food infection. This is associated with drops of infection like flu. There is no documented risk of Covid-19 being transmitted by ordering food.
Entering the sauna does not kill Covid-19 viruses that have penetrated the cell. Once we get home, we don’t need to change clothes and shower urgently. Purity is a virtue, not paranoia. Covid-19 virus does not hang in the air. This is a drip infection that requires close contact. The air is clean, you can walk around the gardens (keeping the distance) in the parks.
The pandemic has made us realize that Covid-19 is not a respecter of race or religion. It is passed on to all people. It is enough to use normal soap against Covid-19 by not necessarily using antibacterial soap. The virus is not a bacterium anyway.
You don’t have to worry about your food orders. But if you want you can heat it up a bit in the microwave. The chance to bring Covid-19 home with your shoes and getting sick is the same as getting hit by lightning twice a day.
You cannot be protected from the virus by drinking / eating vinegar, sumac, soda and ginger. Wearing gloves is a bad idea, the virus can accumulate on the glove, it can easily be transmitted if you touch your face. It’s best to wash your hands.
Immunity is greatly weakened by always staying in a sterile environment. Even if you eat immunity boosting foods, please go out of your house regularly to any park/beach.
Immunity is increased by EXPOSURE TO PATHOGENS, not by sitting at home and consuming fried/spicy/sugary food and aerated drinks.

Woman loses hearing in one ear after mild Covid-19 infection
Woman loses hearing in one ear after mild Covid-19 infection
A woman identified as Meredith Harrell lost her hearing in one ear after mild Covid-19 Infection.
According to Elizabeth Cohen, CNN Senior Medical Correspondent, Harrell was walking from her backyard into the house, her right ear suddenly started to ring.
She realized that, other than the ringing, she couldn’t hear anything out of that ear.”It was like someone flipped a switch,” she said.
Harrell’s hearing loss was a mystery until about a week later, when she took a Covid-19 test. It was positive.
Even though she never felt sick, an otologist — a doctor who specializes in hearing — explained to Harrell that the virus was likely the culprit.Meredith Harrell with her son, Mason. The family tested positive for Covid-19.
Viruses such as measles, mumps and meningitis are known to sometimes cause sudden hearing loss, and there’s growing evidence that the novel coronavirus should be added to the list.
“We’re hearing more and more that people have hearing loss as part of their Covid infection,” said Dr. Matthew Stewart, associate professor of otolaryngology at Johns Hopkins Medicine.
There are no statistics on how common it is for people who’ve had Covid-19 to experience hearing loss, but a few small studies point to a possible link.
A team in Manchester, England, asked Covid-19 patients eight weeks after they’d been discharged from the hospital whether they’d experienced any hearing changes or ringing in their ears.
Of the 138 patients in the study, published in the International Journal of Audiology, 13% said yes.
He said the reason is that the coronavirus is known to cause blood clots in other areas of the body, and he thinks that could be happening in the “extremely small blood vessels” in the inner ear.
Kevin Munro, an audiological scientist who co-authored the study in Manchester, said he thinks that theory makes sense.”
The capillaries in the inner ear are the smallest in the human body, so it wouldn’t take much to block them,” he said.
Munro and his team at the University of Manchester are planning larger studies on Covid-19 and hearing loss.
Until then, they’re not sure why it seems like some Covid-19 patients develop hearing loss while others don’t.
Okada Rider Hangs Himself to Death in Ibadan
Okada Rider commits suicide in Ibadan
A commercial motorcyclist identified as Sarafa Ayuba has hung himself in Ibadan.
GISTFLASH learnt that the 22-year-old commercial motorcyclist hung himself in an uncompleted building beside his uncle’s house at Amuloko area in Ibadan on Friday.
This incident happened in Ona Ara local government area of Ibadan in Oyo State.
According to Ayuba’s uncle, Kazeem Tijani, his nephew left home on Thursday but did not return till he was found in the uncompleted building.
Mr Tijani added that two black plastic bags were seen on the ground with his (Ayuba) pair of sandals also there.
Items found in the bags included a white garment, two types of perfume, a new white singlet, chin chin, and biscuits.
“Ayuba got the motorcycle on hire purchase basis and he was paying the instalments adequately. He was my brother’s son. He was not indebted to anyone and he was not starving at all. He has been living with me for the past two to three years.
“He was working with me before he got okada. He was initially a tailor and he was doing fine. We have searched his room but we could not find any note that he could have left; though we could not search his body. I have called our relations in Apomu; they are on their way.”
However, when the PRO of the State’s police command ‘Olugbenga Fadeyi’ was contacted, he said he was not aware of the incident.
He said, “someone has called me but, I said that I have not heard about it. If anyone attempts to kill himself and is caught, he will be arrested because attempted suicide is a criminal offence.
“Attempted murder is a criminal offence. But, I will find out from the DPO in Ogbere or Akanran if they are aware of the incident.”
But the chairperson, Okada Riders Association, Amuloko branch, Oluwatosin James, confirmed the incident.
According to him, the news of Ayuba’s death came to them as a rude shock. they heard the news at early hours of Saturday morning while at the park.
“He was very respectful and would not fight anybody. Once he did his okada business in the morning, he would go and park and go to his uncle’s shop to assist him.
“Out of N390,000 that he got for the Okada on instalment, only N77,000 that is remaining. There was no issue of threat to him from the person who gave him the okada.
“In fact, the person is like a brother to him. So, we are confounded over this incident.” He added.
