Just yesterday, President Uhuru Kenyatta led the country in getting vaccinated against Covid-19. Previously, citizens had complained that the jab may not be safe because the leaders were not taking it.
Ginger, garlic, tumeric and lemon are easily available in our markets. I didn’t know how these products were powerful until the time I used them.
We may have ignored their importance but they stand to offer great help to our bodies. I am one of those people who used to hate the garlic smell not to mention the tumeric taste.
Last week, I was suffering from cold and flu. At first, I was shocked as this is one of the covid 19 symptoms. You can imagine how scared I was. I decided to take it easy and tried to manage it by myself and then I would visit the doctor later if it didn’t work. I went fetching for the products in the nearby market.
I then prepared them and mixing everything except lemon which I added after the boiling was done. Before I could allow the mixture to cool down, I steamed myself with the hot vapour. After some minutes, I sieved the mixture and added some honey to taste.
After three days, I was free from the cold and flu! I couldn’t believe it. I felt so relieved and happy. My medicine was just a stone throw and at the same time I spent less for my treatment.
By writing this, I don’t advocate for not visiting the doctor when you feel unwell, but you can as well give it a shot.
Have you ever experienced such? Will be happy to hear how you managed it without visiting the doctor. Would you like to read other posts? Be free to get them here.
The former Prime Minister Raila Odinga who is also the ODM party leader had visited the hospital feeling unwell. He complained of fatigue. He was later diagnosed with coronavirus. This happened after he attended several meetings in Mombasa County.
His doctor says that he is responding well to treatment. This is according to report received from media stations. We wish him quick recovery. Remember to leave a comment to wish him well.
The long awaited coronavirus vaccine is already here. As per my previous post, teachers and health workers will be in forefront to receive the vaccine. The process of vaccination has already kicked off.
The vaccine has been taken to a number of counties through out the country. Some people still feel that the vaccine is not safe while others see it as a blessing in disguise.
As stated by the Health Cabinet Secretary, the country is going through the third wave of the virus. He stated that, from the previous experience, this one seems to be tougher than before. The numbers have started rising raising a red flag and so he advised the citizens to be a bit careful and keep to the covid-19 regulations.
Being said that the teachers and health workers will be among the first to be given the coronavirus vaccine, it has attracted mixed reaction from different people. Though voluntary, this haven’t changed other people’s thought on it causing more complications on ones health, such as mental health while some see it as the best way to prevent ourselves from the deadly virus.

We are putting too much attention to coronavirus patients as if there were no other deadly diseases.
One is rushed to hospital for pneumonia complications and what you hear is, ” You have to wait for 24hours for covid-19 results to come out.” Before the 24hours are over, we loose our loved ones just in the name of waiting for the results.
Cancer is another disease that is taking those we love without mercy. But all the attention has been taken to covid.
Just the other day, a man had an accident and was rushed to a nearby hospital. The doctors said they cannot attend to him before he was tested for covid. Seriously, a man who needed emergency care to wait for 24 hours? This isn’t right at all. After some hours, he was no more.
It is my prayer that the doctors, nurses and those in health care should come up with ways to mitigate death of patients whose lives could have been saved if only they were given the right attention at the right time.
Most people are dying not because of covid 19 but of other deadly diseases that needed more attention.
How can a person who has been stabbed wait to be tested coronavirus when the knife is still in his body. To me this is really inhuman.
I understand strongly that we need to care for our nurses and doctors and I appreciate the effort they are putting in, but let us not forget there other more deadly situations than just having the coronavirus!
The coronavirus vaccine has attracted mixed reaction from different people. Others think it causes more complications such as mental health while some see it as the best way to prevent ourselves from the deadly virus.
