Echoes By Stanley Onjezani Kenani @thecontinent_
Africa



The sun has vanished again Our skies are overcast. 

Above us Fly carrion birds, their sounds Bounce off our mountains 

Caw, caw, caw, caw, Echoing.

The sea parted once, and we Started crossing it barefoot But now angry waters Are closing in again Above us, 

the sound of birds Caw, caw, caw, caw, Echoing.

Every day the air is filled with nothing But the heady scent of stargazer lilies 

The children ask: where is mother? 

Only the sound of birds answers them Caw, caw, caw, caw,

Echoing.

When will the clouds clear again? When shall we again hear

The happy chatter of house sparrows? We don’t know, no one does.

For now day and night

The same sound fills the air: Caw, caw, caw, caw, Echoing.

The Kaskazi monsoon whirls through the house and white horses roar on the reef. Soon after dusk the memories appear more vivid than in daylight and these parade through my fitful sleeps @spectator @TheHorseCure
Africa



When the children were small we lived with Mum for five years in Malindi and I loved seeing her every day

One evening I sat with her in this whirlpool of memories, frangipani scents flooding the room, jade geckos throwing long shadows across lamplit walls. 

It’s hard to imagine what the world will be like in 2046, or who will be here As a boy I remember hearing lion roaring in the bush behind the house. 

I used to go fishing with a man whose grandparents had been emancipated from an Arab slaving dhow. Today Malindi is a very big town

08-FEB-2021 :: We are at peak vaccine euphoria
Misc.




We are at peak vaccine euphoria

Global covid19 cases [are] falling at just under 2%/day @video4me

No one wants to think that

If you have a "normal" pandemic that is fading, but a "British variant" that is surging, the combined total can look like a flat, manageable situation. @spignal


They fancied themselves free, wrote Camus, ―and no one will ever be free so long as there are pestilences.

We've updated our preprint on the transmissibility of SARS-CoV-2 VOC 202012/01, aka B.1.1.7, with new statistical and modelling methods. 

Headline: we estimate VOC is 43–82% more transmissible than preexisting variants.

Five brigadier-generals have reportedly died in Tanzania in the past two weeks after developing Covid-like symptoms @thecontinent_
Africa



Doctors are forbidden to list Covid-19 as a cause of death, encouraged instead to write “acute pneumonia” on death certificates.


“Let the government avoid stammering about this while people are vanishing in my constituency. I’m tired of funerals and even today, they are burying a child of a ward councillor. Sometimes I go there without notifying you Mr Speaker,” said Issay, according to The Citizen newspaper.

The first known emergence of Ebola Zaire—the hottest subtype of Ebola virus— happened in September, 1976, when the virus erupted simultaneously in fifty-five villages near the Ebola River.
Africa



Ebola Zaire is a slate-wiper in humans. It killed eighty- eight per cent of the people it infected. Apart from rabies and the human immunodeficiency virus, H.I.V., which causes aids, this was the highest rate of mortality that has been recorded for a human virus. 

Ebola was spread mainly among family members, through contact with bodily fluids and blood. Many of the people in Africa who came down with Ebola had handled Ebola-infected cadavers. It seems that one of Ebola’s paths wends to the living from the dead.
