Wuhan, the epicenter of Coronavirus pandemic, says it has no Coronavirus patients in hospitals

Health officials in Wuhan, the epicenter of the Coronavirus pandemic, that has affected over two million people worldwide causing 206,000 known deaths, have revealed that the city’s hospitals do not have any Coronavirus patients.

Mi Feng, the Chinese National Health Commission spokesman, said the number of new Covid-19 patients in the city was zero.

According to Mi Feng, the zero cases recorded in the city is as a result of coordinated efforts between medical personnel across China.

The lockdown in Wuhan was lifted on April 8 but there are still restrictions in the city as regards public transportation.

The Chinese government's reports of 'no cases' in Wuhan is supposed to be good news for the rest of the world, so countries know the disease can be neutralized, but major countries do not trust China's Coronavirus reporting anymore.

World leaders have accused China of suppressing key information about the virus early on, while the U.S. accused China of keeping the World Health Organization under it's control through out the pandemic leading to Trump freezing almost $400m of funding to the WHO.

China said it would donate an additional $30 million to the WHO in response to the U.S. move.

Health experts in the US and Europe also question how China was so successful in controlling the virus when neighboring countries like Singapore have seen new outbreaks.

COVID-19 Pandemic: Businessman Lucky Igbokwe Urges NASS, State Assemblies To Enact Harsher Laws To Curb Non And Partial Disclosure Of Travel And Health History

Citing concerns with the alarming levels of spread and intensity of the novel coronavirus pandemic, businessman and philanthropist, Mr Lucky Igbokwe popularly known as Don Lulu has called for the state and national legislatures to take urgent and aggressive action to stop the spread of the virus by enacting new laws or reinforcing existing ones in order to address the growing cases of non or partial disclosure of health and travel history at hospital admission points by individuals.

He said this has become necessary in view of the scale and severity of the COVID-19 pandemic which has clearly risen to the level of a public health threat that could justify restrictions on certain rights even as the international human rights law guarantees everyone the right to the highest attainable standard of health and requires governments to take steps to prevent threats to public health and to provide medical care to those who need it.

Mr Lucky Igbokwe, who's also the boss of 2Flame Entertainment and UN-Polac Mayor of Peace, expressed worry about the fate of first responders and other health workers who faced threats to their lives due to patients who had refused to disclose their health and travel information during treatment.
He cited a recent statement by the Nigeria Medical Association which revealed that over 40 medical doctors besides other health workers have been infected with the disease so far.

While seeking supplications and healing from the Almighty of the pandemic, he cautioned against attacking the clergy and the church which acording to him, has become the pastime of some people of late. He was hopeful of a scientific breakthrough via prayers while urging all hands to be on deck and to follow all safety protocols in the fight against the virus

"It is not enough for us to sit behind and call Bill and Melinda Gate doomsday prophets. We must rise up to do our part, if we must win this war", Igbokwe concluded.

We are not getting the needed support and cooperation from the Presidential Task Force in the fight against Coronavirus – Governor Ganduje laments

Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has accused the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, of not giving Kano state the support it needs to takle Coronavirus.

The Kano state Governor slammed the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, in an interview BBC Hausa Service on Monday April 27.

Ganduje described the current situtation in Kano as "bad and scary" because they solely relied on the testing center which was recently closed down, to fight the disease.

He said;

“We are in a serious problem. I can tell you the situation is really bad and scary. Because what we solely rely upon in fighting the disease is the testing centre.

“This laboratory suspended its operation five or six days ago. There is also a shortage of sample collection equipment. It is not a common equipment that you can go and buy in the market. Those whose samples were collected are still waiting to know their fate.

"The problem (is) with the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19. Even its Director General was in Kano. He spent a night there, but we have not heard from him again. The minister (of health) too knows the laboratory is not working.

"There is serious problem. We have been complaining that Kano needs more than one testing centre, right from the beginning of this (pandemic).”

When asked if Kano state is not getting any support from federal government agencies on the fight against COVID-19, Ganduje said;

“Sincerely speaking, we are not getting deserved attention. If these equipment (testing centre) are under our control, we will do our best to make sure it works properly. But we are not getting the needed support and cooperation from from Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.”
