UGANDA-Covid 19 patients are having intercourse during 14 day quarantine.

Of all the countries i know, Uganda is not first country that comes in mind when it comes to this kind of misconduct. Instead of practising social distancing for them not to spread the virus, they do the opposite. It is reported that they visit each other during the 14 days quarantine and have intercourse.

“According to the Ministry of Health in Uganda, Citizens in coronavirus quarantine centres were having intercourse with each other, which is against the social distance measures taken by the government to prevent the spread of the disease.

Watchdog Uganda reports that Permanent Secretary, Diana Atwine, made the disclosure on Radio One talk show. Atwine said the accused persons go out of their rooms and have romance with others they only met in quarantine centres.

“Ugandans are not serious. Some who are in quarantine have even begun having (sexual) affairs. They move to rooms of others in the hotels where we have placed them.

“Others like in Mulago move from their rooms to visit their colleagues who are in other rooms. This is too dangerous and it will distract our efforts,”

said Atwiine.”

I wonder how do they do it. Do they kiss or they just go to it without foreplay? It must be really boring and lonely to be under quarantine.

Good News on how to cure HIV/AIDS veteran doctor reveal

• The current treatments help a lot but it’s been the aspiration to find a cure. The two recent breakthroughs represent a significant milestone.

• We now know why the virus keeps evading the antiretroviral therapy, and where it hides. We have proof of concept that cure is possible.

Until today, there are only two people and several mice known to have been cured of HIV. However, there is growing optimism that these breakthroughs will lead to a way of eradicating the virus without the need for further treatment.

“We now have very good understanding of why the virus keeps evading the antiretroviral therapy, and we know where it hides,” says Dr Peter Cherutich.

Dr Cherutich is a celebrated Kenyan public health specialist and HIV researcher, who became the first graduate of the PhD programme in global health metrics and evaluation at the University of Washington in 2015.

That year, the university awarded him the prestigious Gilbert S. Omenn Award, for his academic excellence and commitment to public health.

In 2016, a study he conducted in Kenya informed the World Health Organisation’s HIV self-testing and assisted partner notification guidelines.

Dr Cherutich took part in the exclusive Sunnylands Summit in February this year, where some of the world’s top researchers described how a future HIV cure might look like, its cost and delivery.

Dr Cherutich spoke to the Star on the ongoing global efforts to find a cure for HIV.

QUESTION: This year we’ve had two major breakthroughs in HIV treatment reported: The London patient who became the second person ever to be free of the virus after a bone marrow transplant, and, two weeks ago, researchers announced they cleared HIV from infected mice through gene editing. Is a cure in sight?

ANSWER: There are two things that are related. One is it has always been the aspiration of the global community, of advocates and researchers, to find a cure. From day one, we knew that’s where the journey would end. The treatments are just intermediate, not the final solution. The treatments help a lot, but it’s been the aspiration to find a cure. The two cases represent a significant milestone.

In the last three years, the milestone for cure has gone up sharply because we have an idea of what would lead to a cure. Antiretroviral therapy does not eliminate the virus from the body completely because the virus hides in some cells, where ARVs don’t reach. They can only clear what’s in the blood.

The way HIV cure would happen is that we would start with ARV so when the viral load is down, you knock them down. Then you still keep someone on antiretroviral for some time as you monitor.

The second part is there are 30 million-plus (37 million, according to the Unaids) people with HIV across the world. We can put everyone on ART and incidence will go down, and people will have a normal life expectancy. But the amount of dollars we need to put all these people on treatment for life is too much, so we have sufficient motivation to find treatment.

WHERE EXACTLY ARE WE ON THE JOURNEY OF FINDING A CURE?

We now have a very good understanding of why the virus keeps evading the antiretroviral therapy, and we know where it hides. We have proof of concept that cure is possible.

If you follow both the Berlin and London patient, the thread is similar. If you have a mutation to the gene CCR5 gene, you can’t get HIV, it cannot attach to the cell and so it will be knocked off by ARVs.

The medicines are always circulating in the blood but the ARVs cannot recognise or enter into some of those cells. When a virus has entered a cell, sometimes this cell exposes itself to white blood cells and is killed together with the virus. So sometimes, these hijacked cells hide. It’s like if someone is hijacked by thugs, sometimes they can’t alert cops in case they are shot along with the hijackers.

So there is proof this mutation can be engineered to make the cell become immune to HIV infection. In the entire bloodstream, to find those infected cells that are hiding takes a lot of time, because they are also very few. It could mean one infected cell in a million cells. So if you miss that one and discontinue ART, that one cell will come out and the virus will spread.

People with CCR5 mutation can get still infected but the virus has nowhere to hide, so ART will come and kill them.

SO WHAT DOES THE PROOF OF CONCEPT IMPLY EXACTLY?

Proof of concept means if you follow that line, you can find a cure. You can also use gene therapy. You can just get an injection and this causes a mutation and prevents the cells from infection.

You could even use the antibodies that are there to identify those cells where the virus is hiding. With ARVs we have done 99 per cent of the work, ARVs have done the dirty work. But now you need another compound that will go into those cells and kill them. So the antibodies will go door to door, and if they find a virus they bombard it. I’m putting it in a simplistic way for easy understanding.

The foundation of HIV cure is viral suppression with ART, so you need to clear the circulating viruses completely, then you focus on the spots where they are hiding.

HOW LONG ARE WE TO THE CURE?

There is extreme optimism by the top HIV researchers in the world. Between February 7-9 this year, I joined 30 high-level stakeholders from the HIV scientific, product development, financing and delivery communities for an intimate and vital discussion on prospects and requirements for developing a cure for HIV.

The Sunnylands Summit (held in California) also considered how to ensure the widest possible distribution and access for a future cure. While a cure will be essential worldwide, the primary focus of the retreat was the challenge of distribution in low and lower-middle-income countries, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa.

Of course the reason they involved us in the summit is we will be consumers and we have to provide a product profile. What would be the most effective way to deliver a cure? What’s the cost?

We want something that can be delivered by the lowest cadre of health workers. If we say it’s just doctors, a lot of people will die as we wait. The lowest cadre can deliver an injection; I mean people are even injecting themselves with insulin. It can be something pre-loaded in a syringe and ideally it should be long-acting, so that you don’t come every day. You can have your shot and return after three months — those are some of the suggestions we’re giving.

It will take time but the fact that we’re talking of a product profile, shelf life, then you know there’s something. Those are the discussions happening and it’s public now.

THERE ARE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE IN AFRICA LIVING WITH HIV. WHAT’S YOUR ADVICE TO THEM?

For those living with HIV, the current ARVs are efficacious and enable individuals to live a full life. To that extent, people should continue taking ARVs, Zambia News 24reports.

ARVs are the best we have for now, but there are two things: You need to take them for life, and daily. An HIV cure would eliminate that. It will be good for the patient.

The issue of taking the current drugs for life isn’t even a patient issue but a donor-and-government issue because we may not have the resources to sustain that. You can imagine how much it would cost to put 30 million people on treatment. It would cost trillions of dollars; we may not have the resources.

But compare that with investing in 10 to 15 years in research, productions and manufacturing; it will be cheaper. The search for HIV cure is a cheaper, better and prudent use of our money. But for now, we cling to ARVs to save lives.

Zodwa wabantu speaks out about his fiance Ntobeko Linda,I think they won’t be wedding anymore

Zodwa Wabantu

Zodwa Wabantu has kept Mzansi on suspense after her proposal to bae, Ntobeko Linda a few months ago.

The dancer publicly proposed to Ntobekousing an expensive ring which she flaunted on Instagram.

However, people expected a wedding ceremony as she announced kicking off her wedding plans. In fact, she had visited her fiance’ family.

All of a sudden, everything about the boyfriend went mute and we all got distracted by Zodwa’s booming career.

Zodwa Wabantu at Durban July 2019

Some fans got bothered if the two were still together. But just to clear our minds on the wedding plans, Zodwa revealed to DRUM saying:

“I think there might not be a wedding, I’m so scared. I haven’t spoken to Ntobeko about this yet.”

“I haven’t even picked my bridesmaids yet.”

In a recent interview with Move! Zodwa revealed her fears about marrying Ntobeko also involved finances. Ntobeko currently works at a bank and is not as financially secure as her.

“I am paying for everything and I think we needed our previous break to think things through. I know he does not like the celebrity life but he is just calm and knows how to put a smile on my face.”

Zodwa also shared a word of advice to ladieswho are thinking of tying the knot. “Make sure you are doing it for the right reason. Ask yourself if you are indeed in love with that person and you’re sure about spending the rest of your life with them”.

Take a quick peek into the paying side of Zodwa’s career hustle below:

Musicians Born in the U.K is given 14days to leave the country -see interesting details

Singer born in UK given 14 days to leave the country https://twitter.com/bumithomas

A musician born in the UK faces being kicked out of her home because of a little-known change to Home Office legislation.

Bumi Thomas was given 14 days to leave after being told she is illegal despite living here most of her life.

The rising jazz star grew up thinking she was British, attended university in the UK and has legally worked and paid taxes since graduation.

However because her parents are Nigerian, she now faces deportation and being separated from her family and friends.

The situation bears a chilling resemblance to the Windrush scandal, which saw many people deported in error after decades of life in the UK.

Ms Thomas was born in Glasgow in June 1983 to parents who came over from Africa in the early 1970s.

In January 1983, Margaret Thatcher’s Tory government changed the British Nationality Act that removed the automatic right of citizenship for children of parents from former colonies.

The singer’s parents should have registered her but were unaware they needed to do so.

In a twist of irony, Ms Thomas’ elder sister Kemi was born one year before the Act and has always had legal status.

The musician, 36, believes she is a victim of an increasingly hostile attitude by the Home Office to migrants in the UK.

She said: ‘My parents came here at the end of the Windrush era.

‘I had a National Insurance number, I had my birth certificate, I’d got a driving licence, a bank account, I went to college.

‘At no point during that process was there any indication I was doing anything incorrectly.’

Speaking to Metro.co.uk, she continued: ‘I have never had any question in my mind that I’m British and Scottish.

‘And that’s something I’m proud of. But according to a piece of paper, suddenly what I think about myself isn’t valid. It’s an illusion.’

At the age of three-and-a-half, Ms Thomas and her family returned to Nigeria.

She came back to the UK as a teenager, thinking she automatically had dual British-Nigerian nationality.

After graduating with a degree in fine arts from Bath Spa University she began to work and moved to London, where she now lives with her sister.

It was only at the age of 25 when she went to apply for her UK passport that she was told she was never registered as British.

The Home Office was told she had technically overstayed in an illegal capacity.

Ms Thomas said her case was classed as ‘complex’ and she was told to use human rights legislation rather than immigration laws to fight it.

That marked the start of an ‘exhausting and expensive’ decade-long legal battle.

Two weeks ago she received a letter from the Home Office saying her application for permanent residency had been unsuccessful.

She was given 14 days to appeal or face detention without notice.

Ms Thomas has since lodged an appeal and is awaiting a court hearing.

The musician, who has performed at the Royal Festival Hall and London Palladium, continued: ‘My parents had no idea of the law change.

‘This was in an analogue age, where correspondence was written and there was no social media.’

She added: ‘When I was told I wasn’t British, I was shocked and devastated. My soul and my spirit were screaming.

‘Nigeria is foreign to me and I am a foreigner there. I’ve been in the UK for 18 years.’

Ms Thomas’ grandfather came to the UK to study medicine and she said her parents were also given a warm welcome as part of the Windrush generation – when people from former colonies came to the UK to rebuild the country after the Second World War.

She said their treatment was in stark contrast to the way the Home Office was now treating her and thousands of others who ‘fall through the cracks of the system.’

She added: ‘There is a stigma attached to being an immigrant these days.

‘At no point did I ever think I was doing anything wrong.

‘When my parents came over they were welcomed but now it is different. There are people who have lived in the UK for 30/40/50 years facing hostility.’

Ms Thomas continued: ‘The Home Office right now has a hostile environment policy, a set of administrative and legislative measures that are designed to make staying in the UK as difficult as possible for people like me.’

The musician should be making her US debut at the Ford Theatre in Los Angeles in October but the immigration issues mean that is now in doubt.

She has launched a gofundme page to help towards legal costs, which are already at £7,000 and rising.

Ms Thomas’s lawyer, Fahad Ahmed, said she missed out on automatic citizenship by a matter of months and added: ‘Courts take a less harsh view than the Home Office, and if someone can prove their life is here, the courts will use their discretion.’

The British Nationality Act 1948 gave citizens of British colonies the right to settle in the UK.

Since they had the legal right to come to the UK, they never needed nor were given any documents upon entry.

In what later became known as the Windrush scandal, many were wrongly detained, denied legal rights or deported in administrative blunders.

The Home Office is set to pay up to £200 million in compensation to people whose lives were damaged by their mistaken classification as illegal immigrants.

The Home Office has been contacted by Metro.co.uk about Ms Thomas’ case.
