Lagos/covid 19

Meanwhile,

Lagos state governor, babajide sanwo-olu, has raised an alarm over the increasing figure of coronavirus covid-19 in the state, warned foreigners who violate guidelines against the risk of deportation.

The gov lamented this at a press briefing, saying lagos state is the epicenter of the pandemic in nigeria as it had witnessed a rise in positivity rate from 1.1 percent at the start of july to seven percent by the end of the month.

Governor sanwo-olu while warning defaulting foreigners of the risk revocation of their permanent residency and deportation, called on residents to adhere strictly to the guidelines put in place to curb the spread of the virus.

Mdc/threat

The medical and dental council of nigeria has threatened house officers of hospitals who join the strike initiated by the national association of resident doctors.

The council’s position was contained in a statement by its registrar, dr. T.a.b sanusi, titled press release on professional ethics for house officers, threatened that house officers who embark on strike will suffer a reposting with no remuneration.

According to him, the attention of the council has been drawn to the news of the industrial strike announced by the national association of resident doctors and it is in the light of this that the council is compelled to issue this public notice as guidance to practitioners and the general public.

He therefore advised the officers to avoid participating in activities like industrial actions that could lead to interruption in their postings.

Us/amazon vote

A us labour board has officially recommended a rerun of a landmark amazon com inc union election in alabama where employees had voted overwhelmingly against making their warehouse the online retailer’s first to organise in the united states.

During a may hearing that lasted  for three weeks, the  retail, wholesale and department store union, rwdsu had argued amazon improperly influenced votin by pressuring employees to drop ballots in the mailbox while they were in view of warehouse cameras, creating a perception of surveillance that us labour law forbids

While reacting, the rwdsu’s president stuart appelbaum, welcomed the recommendation said the question of whether or not to have a union is supposed to be the workers’ decision and not the employer’s.

However, in the coming weeks, a regional director for the us national labor relations board nlrb will decide whether to order the rerun based on this recommendation.

Us/police

The us district of columbia’s police department has announced that two more police officers who responded to the january 6 riot at the united states capitol have died by suicide, bringing the number of known suicides by officers on duty at the building that day to four

In a statement by the department spokes person hugh carew said metropolitan police officer gunther hashida who joined the district of columbia’s metropolitan police department mpd in may 2003was found dead in his home

Meanwhile,during emotional testimony last week, four police officers told a house of representatives special committee that the deceased  were beaten, threatened, taunted with racial insults, and thought they might have  died as they struggled to defend the capitol against the mob.

The deadly january 6 attack has prompted democratic representative eric swalwell to file a civil lawsuit against trump and republican congressman mo brooks, accusing them of inciting people.

Wuhan/covid

Authorities in wuhan has announced that its entire population will be tested  for covid-19 after the central chinese city where the coronavirus first emerged reported its first local cases in more than a year.

Wuhan official li tao disclosed this to newsmen that seven locally transmitted cases had been found among migrant workers in the city, breaking a year-long streak after it squashed an initial outbreak with an unprecedented lockdown in early 2020.

However, the announcement follows similar moves in zhangjiajie, a popular tourist destination in central china’s hunan province, as well as nearby zhuzhou city affecting more than two million people in total.

Meanwhile, beijing has blocked tourists from entering the capital during the peak summer holiday travel season also asked residents not to leave unless necessary.

China/covid

Millions of people has been confined to their homes in china as the country tried to contain its largest coronavirus outbreak in months including seven positive tests found in wuhan, where the virus first emerged in late 2019.

Report says china had reported no fewer than  55 new locally transmitted cases as an outbreak of the fast-spreading delta variant reached over 20 cities in more than a dozen provinces.

According to reports, major cities including beijing have now tested millions of residents also place  close contacts under quarantine as authorities in the capital met and agreed on the need to take strict precautions and defend the city .

Meanwhile, china had previously boasted of its success in bringing domestic cases down to virtually zero after the coronavirus first emerged in wuhan, allowing the economy to rebound.

China/flood

Death toll from last month’s devastating floods in central china has risen to 302 with dozens of people still missing, tripling the number of fatalities reported last week.

Hou hong mayor made this knoiwn to reporters  revealing that 39 bodies had been recovered from underground car parks and other areas in basements while 14 people died on line 5 of the city’s subterranean train network where images and videos shared on social media showed people standing neck-deep in water as their carriage was overwhelmed.

According to him, zhengzhou, the state capital of henan province which is home to 12 million people was hardest hit with 292 people dead and 47 missing.

Experts therefore warned against extreme weather events, including severe floods and drought as a result of climate change.

India/congo

No fewer than six nationals of african countries have been injured during a scuffle with police in india’s southern city of bengaluru over an alleged custodial death of a congolese student.

Report says  joel shindani malu, 27 who  was diagnosed with bradycardia  was administered with several rounds of cardiopulmonary resuscitation cpr and other life-saving interventions but died due to a suspected cardiac arrest,which had caused several nationals of african countries to stage a demonstration outside the police station.

According to report, joel was detained by the police over charges of possessing a small cache of banned psychotropic ecstasy pills but died in custody after suffering cardiac arrest.

The demonstrators therefore refuted the police claim that malu had died of cardiac arrest, accused them of falsely detaining him as investigation is on going.
