Monkeypox virus clearly is endemic in #Nigeria.
Cases occur sporadically throughout the year and across the country except to the far northeast.

#Monkeypox cases continue to occur in Nigeria this year (2022): 110 suspected and 31 confirmed cases

The above report does not indicate which of the 2 clades of #MonkeypoxVirus are responsible for the cases.

The reported case fatality rate of 3.6% is higher than the usual 1% for the West African clade but lower than the up to 10% for the Central African clade.

#Nigeria
The report does not indicate if the reported cases are due to person-to-person transmission or to contact with infected wild mammals.

#monkeys are not the reservoirs of the virus, despite the name that the virus has received.

"Crise entre l'Algérie et l'Espagne: l'Union européenne avertit Alger"

aa.com.tr/fr/afrique/cri…
La sortie des responsables de l'UE a vite fait réagir la mission de l’Algérie auprès de l’UE. Par voie de communiqué, la mission algérienne « déplore la précipitation avec laquelle la Commission Européenne a réagi sans consultation préalable, ni vérification aucune,
.. auprès du gouvernement algérien, à la suspension par l’Algérie d’un traité politique bilatéral avec un partenaire européen, en l’occurrence l’Espagne, sans s’assurer que cette mesure n’affecte ni directement, ni indirectement ses engagements contenus

Well... It's been a while. Crazy busy + a world economic crisis , felt like it’s a good time to go back to think. Here are some #AfricaTech #reflections given the many 'we're all gonna day' recent hype from all over. Might be long, so bare with me… 👇🧵
1/ Everyone shared views. From @ycombinator (too generic and unexciting to me), to @sequoia (worth the 52 pgs…). Lot’s of reading later, one point is clear > it’s all super US centric. The center of the world for many, but what does it entail for us? for tech in #Africa?
@ycombinator @sequoia 2/ Starting from the end, we’re not all gonna die. Tech + startups & innovation will make it through as a sector, and like in every other financial crisis in history, economy will recover. Those who manage this period well, can become much more meaningful (see '00 and '08).

#Myrta Merlino, conduttrice di #lariachetira su #La7, ha detto in modo pessimo una cosa abbastanza vera.
E' stata assalita da un'orda di *redatto* che tentano di negare il ruolo dell'#ucraina nel mercato del cibo.
qual'è il peso di #Kiev in questo settore?
vediamolo assieme
1/9
Prendiamo i maggiori prodotti alimentari di esportazione dell'#Ucraina. Grano, Mais, Orzo, Olio di Girasole.
In termini di valore, #Kiev rappresenta circa il:
9% del mercato del grano
14% mercato del mais
12% del mercato dell'orzo
52% del mercato dell'olio di girasole
2/9 ImageImageImageImage
Questo fa dell'#Ucraina il:
1° esportatore al mondo di #Olio di girasole
4° esportatore al mondo di #Mais
5° esportatore al mondo di #Grano
3° esportatore al mondo di #Orzo

There are about 2.3 billion #Christians in the world & 1.8 billion #Muslims. That gap is expected to narrow by 2060, when there will be 3 billion #Christians & nearly 3 billion #Muslims. That’s because #Muslims, on average, are younger & have more children than do #Christians.
The countries with the 5 highest #Muslim populations are all in South and Southeast #Asia or in sub-Saharan #Africa, rather than the #MiddleEast; and the countries with the three highest #Christian populations are in the #Americas rather than in the #MiddleEast or #Europe.
By 2060, #India will retain a #Hindu majority but also will have the largest #Muslim population of any country in the world, surpassing #Indonesia. The current #Hindu population worldwide is approx 1.2 billion. Expected #Hindu population in 2060 will be nearly 1.5 billion.

How do colonial masters and their entire current population feel when they see movies like #RRR, #Oloibiri and other depictions of their EXPLOITATION, DESECRATION, MASS MURDER and MISRULE?

#Africa; such a forgiving continent.
India; did they let it all go?🤔
🇬🇧 🇵🇹 🇫🇷 🇺🇸 Image
There’s an argument that we sold ourselves for the “silver coins”, our chiefs and leaders betrayed us for money.
But did they at anytime create the WICKEDNESS, CRUELTY and HATE in the Wh!te exploiter’s heart?

THE MISSION WAS; KILL, DESECRATE, SUBDUE & EXPLOIT FROM THE GET GO!!!
No, “Yahoo-Yahoo” is not the way to get back at these guys.👎🏽

Building your Nation(s) and ignoring theirs is.
After all they’ve done, they’re still the “choice destination”.
#Immigration is a Multimillion dollar/pound industry for them till today.

Our leaders learnt NOTHING!!!

@martoiu It is both..as realism is also knowledge and insight..religion is not.
Sadly Velina Tchakarova @vtchakarova took the wrong turn some time ago..like #EU recently. As this conflict already started end 1990's and is another egocentric nationalistic #project, like #Afghanistan and>
@martoiu @vtchakarova >#Iraq of nationalistic governments of the #US and #buddy #UK against both #Russia and the #EU(!). Colleague Velina is also totally wrong about #Putin's #Russia #Europe vision.

Millions of people have been uprooted from their homes in #Ukraine and are in need of aid.

As the world responds, those enduring ongoing crisis in #Africa will also be impacted by the #conflict and must not be left behind.

It’s time to act. Share this thread to raise awareness.
Global price increases are also going to affect people here in the #UK and have a devastating impact on people across the world.
As a result of the #conflict, natural gas, and food and fertiliser prices have skyrocketed.

1/ 地球上诞生过无数个文明和国家,也消亡过无数段历史,历史的尘埃里,强国如前苏联人尽皆知,弱国可能在史书上都留不下一笔,无论何时,整个世界棋局,始终只有几位棋手。当我们在谈论过去的牛市里诞生的加密宠儿项目时,目光似乎只集中在了欧美亚三洲的几个国家或地区里。
2/ 搜索了几个tag #africa #crypto 让我看到了一些不一样的东西,作为人类历史上老是被"欺负"的大洲,非洲在web3的发展进程里似乎属于刚刚起步的环节,其crypto配套基础设施远没有其他地区完善,以下挑选出了几个具有强背书且立意为非洲用户打造的产品。
3/ @JamboTechnology 刚刚宣布最新一轮3千万融资,投资阵容包括3P,coinbase,老虎和三箭在内的多家一线基金,创始人从小在非洲长大,十分熟悉本地的特点。通过城市主理人和JamboAcademy的运作方式,从用户教育端入手,将遥远的crypto以非常local和native进行传播,很接地气。
