- Doctors have vowed to resume their suspended strike

- They had initially suspended the strike to allow government fulfill its own part
Nigerians can now start preparing for another strike by the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors.
According to the organisation, the body will resume its suspended nationwide strike in three weeks if the federal government fails to meet its demands.
Aliyu Sokomba, president of the association, disclosed this to journalists in a press conference in Abuja.
NARD had, on June 22, suspended its nationwide strike, after a virtual meeting of over 300 of its members.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that a 20-year-old young man, Malone Mukwende has changed the face of medicine as he co-published a book with two other professors to answer the questions of how symptoms manifest on black skins.
Aljazeera reports many medical textbooks are only designed to give an accurate diagnosis of white people’s skins.
A medical student at St Gorge’s University, he said he has come across many people who are always scared of being misdiagnosed by health workers.
He said when he got to medical school, he knew he could use his academic position to make the desired change.
The brilliant 20-year-old added that a big part of the problem is that people are not being taught how to identify symptoms on dark skins in medical schools.
Malone said it is totally different when it comes to white skins.
According to Aljazeera, diseases like meningitis manifests differently on different skin tones. In that case, the diagnosis for a white person may not be the same as someone with black skin.
He said the reason why more black people die from Covid-19 in London, for instance, may be connected with the fact that most of the pieces of medical advice given out do not apply to black skin.
The brilliant man added that questions like “are you pale around the lips” do not necessarily befit people with black skin.
