Editor's note: A member of faculty at the Nigeria Institute of Journalism, Amaso Jack, proposes a series of realistic economic strategies that the Nigerian government can adopt in minimizing the effects of COVID-19 with emphasis on wind management solutions.
TIME IS RUNNING OUT!
COVID-19 is not spread by the wind, but the wind can carry sneezing and or coughing into the private space of an individual
…. Accordingly, to the wind, we must go to arrest its spread!
This just might be the difference between life and death for someone.
Between when the vaccine is found and doctors out of fatigue, exhaustion is lost there should be an "ADVANTAGE GAP" solution to halt the spread, this is what this is about!
BACKGROUND: The world; humanity, civilization within the context of political economy, geopolitical, political geography and indeed the essence of humanity are under threat by these biological terrorists called COVID-19!
Where did it come from?
In response to a video on getting China to pay for the global damaging effects of COVID-19, I wrote:
"....TIGHTENING THE NOOSE AROUND BEIJING?
....thawing ice of conspiracy theory.
....when the ice thaws, the truth like water flows out.
Is the ice thawing?
1. Between criminal negligence and biological warfare? or
2. From criminal negligence to biological warfare? or
3. From biological warfare to criminal negligence? or
4. Outright biological warfare?
Beijing's trillion-dollar gamble gone wrong?
The nature of the problem is the insight to its solution.
COVID-19 is not airborne in strict usage, but it is dispersed by wind-generated currents, so to wind management solutions we must go to arrest its spread.
The nature of the problem is often the tip of the iceberg insight to its eventual solution.
The Bible sets the template for this principle this way.
Israelites who were bitten by snakes, looked at the fiery serpent made of brass, by Moses and held up on a rod, as the solution, and were healed, this biblical concept of a snake on a pole coincides with the conventional symbol of the medical profession known either as caduceus and or the rod of Asclepius.
Anil Shetty, Shraddha Shetty, and Oliver Dsouza in an article titled: "Medical Symbols in Practice: Myths vs Reality" wrote:
"The caduceus is the popular symbol of medicine. However, premier health organizations and regulatory bodies such as the World Health Organization and the Medical Council of India use a different symbol- the rod of Asclepius in their logo."
1. THE CADUCEUS: In appearance, it is a rod with two snakes coiled around it facing each other with what looks like the wings of a bird on top.
Caduceus has its roots in Greek and Roman mythology.
"An ancient Greek or Roman herald's wand, typically one with two serpents twined around it, carried by the messenger god Hermes or Mercury."
2. THE ROD OF ASCLEPIUS:
The Rod of Asclepius on the contrary, has only one snake coiled around a rod, but like the Caduceus it came from Greek mythology. Asclepius for the Greeks was the god of medicine.
3. THE BIBLICAL ACCOUNT:
Numbers 21:7-9 KJV put it this way:
"Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord, and against thee; pray unto the Lord, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people."
 And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live.
 And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.
History puts the date of Greek civilization at 8th century, the Jewish civilization as documented by Moses, came earlier, so the basis is biblical
Anti snake venom is obtained from victims of snakes; horses and sheep who don't know they carry the solution to the problem!
UNDERSTAND THE PRINCIPLE THEN DEPLOY IT TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM.
The pandemic is essentially spread through the air, so the solutions must by principle involve the air.
