Africa’s first Coronavirus Patient has Tested Negative for the Infection



Africa can now breathe easy as the foreign national in Egypt who was thought to be carrying the coronavirus has tested negative for it.

This is coming after Egypt confirmed its first case of the virus last week by a foreigner who was immediately put in isolation.

According to Punch, the Egyptian health ministry and the World Health Organisation announced that repeated polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis, a test conducted on coronavirus patients, came out negative when the patient was examined.

Of course this does not mean that the patient has been released; the patient will remain under quarantine for the next 14 days to ensure he is completely free.

    Every time I see these headlines I wonder what will happen if all our medical professionals abandon their duty and started rent-seeking like those rent-seeking Lawyers and Accountants that like to infringe on the inalienable rights of human beings.

    Just imagine if all the people in the science community started lying and giving miss directions like those idiots.

    This set of foolish people that deliberately stagnated an entire nation for years and caused countless loss of life, how long will they last on their own?

    Now another set of idiots are telling children “hear it and kill it”, “China has better facilities” instead of find ways to help them even if you cant bring them home.
