"Design week Lagos is underway. Started in 2019, the event aims to platform contemporary talent from across the African continent and showcase local materials and techniques. This shows producer mainly Evans, caught up with the festival's founder, titi ogle ferry to find out more. Is my life work to actually champion contemporary African design. I began my career as an interior designer product designer and Lagos. And like many of my counterparts, I spent most of my life sourcing from everywhere else in the world, just sourcing from Italy from the states and just thinking about the way the industry has evolved. If you think about music, fashion, literally baptistic movement. You notice that most of them have gained global recognition. But when it comes to African design, a lot of people don't know much about what's going on here. And I looked at that was a huge gap. I looked at what was going on because I mean, I live in the continent because I live here. I see it every day. And you see people doing amazing things and no one knows what they're doing. You just get them when you need to do stuff. You're okay, I'm trying to do this. And we're naturally creative. So I thought that was a gap that needed to be filled. So for interiors for product design and is an important for me, it's an important work. Because you have so many so many so many creatives. Designing for themselves. I mean, there are other issues we have, we don't have manufacturers, but they design and produce this work. So for me, it was just something that needed to be done. I know what's Trump said. So this is theme is design revolution. So I wonder what kind of change is what kind of shifts in the world are the designers featured this year, looking to dream up or to instigate in the future. So one of the things that most people have seen when it comes to African design is more traditional African design. That's what most people know. In fact, I'll just pause and talk about the Ankara fabric. So the uncertain fabric are the patterns they actually, like I said, they're Dodge. They're the fabrics that a lot of people portray African wax. You know the African wax. That's what they've been calling it. But it's more bold colors, more patterns that are not necessary geometric. Some of them are fluid. So I would say, and car fabrics are they call them the African wax or Holland wax. They're a 100% curtain, but we have lots of vibrant patterns. They're really colorful. And they associated with Africans. Living there for lots of designers actually use them. I've seen Louis Vuitton use them. I've seen lots of international brands use them and actually portray as African. Growing up, I see a lot of people see and care fabric is African. It's actually not African as Dutch. And I know that it was something that was done, I think it filled in the Philippines and it became popular in Africa. But that's actually not the identity. Just kind of thinking through as an African that lives in Africa, sometimes we love. Sometimes you look and say, why do they have you seen a lion? Have you seen animals? Do we jump on trees? And I mean, we get on Twitter. We do everything, which is developing but we are not what most people think and for me it was just something that a lot of people were breaking out of what they felt, people were already portraying African design as I would say. So when you see a lot of people put colors so they just see Africa and let's just splash a lot of colors. But there are lots of neutrals. If you know much about the African colors, there are lots of earthy colors. Beige just graze, you know, just not what people think. So we had a lot of designers just saying, you know what, let's actually show because it's very easy for you to say, oh, but that's not what it is. But what is it? So you have the opportunity to actually show break out of what people think and now show what you want people to see. You want to show them more neutral colors, clean lines, geometric patterns. So that's really what we're showing. Even though we know that we have the traditional craftsmanship, but we all live in a digital world today. We can draw influences from the past, but we're living in this world. So we want to be able to showcase that. So that can continent is abundant in raw materials as bamboo, there's leather copper, brass, bronze. But much of these materials are exported. I wondered how design week Lagos is maybe showcasing the potential for these local materials and maybe inspiring designers and how they could be used and for more of it to stay within the continent rather than sort of be flown here and there across the globe. A lot of the raw materials we have are taking aboard why? Because one there's not much research done on this different materials. So a lot of people don't know how to use them. That's one. Secondly, the whole process. There's a whole process that has to do with manufacturing. Everywhere else in the world, there's a clear value chain, but in Africa, there's none. So you find out you have someone that is trying to design something and they have to kind of use everything. You have to take the materials. You have to understand them. So it's like you're a Jack of all chief Master of None. So most of them actually struggle. Also, the manufacturing is a really, really, really major challenge because we don't, I don't know, for some reason, we haven't really developed the manufacturing. We've not had a real industrial revolution. So it's just easy for people to design and just take them to Italy and just take them or just bring them back to Africa and buy. I mean, let's use leather, for example, in Africa, we like all the designer bags and things. But some of these major brands actually come to candle get the leather and take them and we buy them as finished goods. The reason this happens is because like I said, they're only selling the raw materials. That's it. No one's doing anything with them. We have a few people struggling, but it is a constraint manufacturing.

How To Use Your Brand As A Sales Tool
"My guest is laura reese. Laura teaches entrepreneurs and small businesses had a used. Their brand is a powerful sales tool and as a way to accelerate the sales cycle over the past twenty years she's worked as brand strategist happy writer and creative director. Supporting some of the world's most recognizable brands some of the world's smallest companies and lots of organizations in between. Thanks so much for joining me today. Laura thank you diana. I'm so glad to be here. I'm thrilled to have you here. We're gonna be talking about Using your brand is a sales tool. And so i think i'd like to start with asking you to define what a brand as well. I hear a lot of people say no well. We have a logo. So we're good as far as branding. But i think that a brand is about a lot more than that. It's about the total experience that your customers have with you with your business. Lagos definitely part of that because it ideally should represent an reflect that that experience. But it's just a really small piece so at a base level and especially for small businesses. Your brand is going to boil down to two things. The first thing is how your company serves customers. So that's how you solve their problems. How you meet their needs how you help them achieve their dreams goals and then the second thing is how you express that externally. Let me think about a big brands like nike. I love that example. Because they're so ubiquitous and everyone so familiar. What their swoosh and their tagline the way that they really serve customers is they provide shoes in athletic. Wear that's designed to enhance performance on. It gives you confidence to play at a high level. Let's not very sexy to stay right. So even though that's the foundation of what they do the way they express that is by showing you ask needs and by saying. Just do it okay. So let's talk about like the. Are there similarities between like the nike brand and a brand for a small business. Are there differences. The tana's definitely so when you think about a brand for any size of business you're going to have a set of foundational things. That are the same so nike knows. Its customer nike knows. What messages resonate. It knows its personality. It has a set visual and verbal tools that it follows in every execution of its brand same holds true for a small business that these are the same foundational elements that i teach my clients. When we go through my branding framework. you know. It's the same thing to finding your customer knowing your messages knowing your personality in how you execute that the biggest differences that you're going to see is the scale at which you can execute your marketing tactics so nike can. We're lebron jeans and serena williams that you probably don't have that kind budget as business. Great okay so that makes so much sense to me now. Oh shoot. I just had a question totally left my head Oh i know what it was when you were talking about defining your client. I find that companies are reluctant. I will stay that business. Owners are sometimes reluctant to engage in that sort of definition. Because they're afraid they're going to leave people out or leave you know companies out customers out that that they wanna be pretty broad. It's so common. And i think that that fear is real. I faced it myself as i've defined my brand for my own business. You wanna make sure that you can help a lot of different people but what you're really doing when you are talking in generalities is you're saying things that are kind of the noah and no one is going to pay attention to so the more tightly you can zero in on your target customer the more you can know that person to know their their pains. Pablo what it's gonna look like for them. If those problems are solved the more that you were gonna stand out to that person and you know if you think about one target client. It sounds crazy because of course you need more than one client business running but when you create your brand and then the marketing that follows from that if you have one specific person in mind that you are talking to. It's just going to be so much more concrete and so much more real have so much more emotion and passion that is going to be communicated to everyone is going to be so much more effective for you Right 'cause the messaging is so specifically targeted to that audience.
California governor gives somber outlook as virus cases reach nearly 1 million
"Has surpassed more than 10 Million Corona virus cases and looks like it's on track to hit record hospitalizations here in California Cove in 19 cases are increasing as well. And yesterday in a press conference, Governor Gavin Newsom warned the public once again. About the dangers of pandemic complacency. Committee politics, correspondent Teresa Lagos, says Mohr Governor Newsome struck a measure tone, noting that while California is seeing rising numbers and all of the key areas, including positivity rates, and I C u bed admissions that the state has the capacity to handle the increased caseload. Newsome warrant, however, that several counties may have to dial back reopening plans this week after spikes in those areas. He didn't specify which counties, Newsom says it's obvious why cases started climbing again in October. People are letting their guard down there taking their masks off. They're starting to get together outside of their household cohorts. They're starting to see business is reopened, and we're starting again to see more people mixing, the governor says As it gets colder, he expects to see more of that mixing and potentially more cases for the California report. Teresa Lagos.
California Votes To Keep Criminal Justice Changes
"Was a good day for criminal justice reformers. In California statewide voters resoundingly defeated a ballot measure that would have rolled back some reforms. And voted to give people on parole the right to vote in the Bay Area. Six police Accountability measures enjoyed strong support, and San Francisco's former district attorney, George Gascon, appears to be winning in his challenge to the more conservative sitting Los Angeles D A. But voters did reject an attempt to end money bail. Here to sort out what All this means is cake politics correspondent Marissa Lagos. Marissa, You have been covering criminal justice reform efforts in California for over a decade now, were you surprised by these results? You know, I wasn't surprised Hera. But I do think that it is a huge win for the reform side of things. I mean, we've heard for years ever since some of these changes started coming through both legislatively and at the ballot box. A lot of pushback from law enforcement and other folks who saw them is going to far and I think that voters weighing in s O decisively on both proposition 20 rejecting some of these rollbacks of reforms and also on some of these police oversight measures really does show a shift an opinion. I spoke to Kate Chatfield, she's policy director at the Justice Collaborative, which is a national pro reform group. She knows that proposition. 20 wasn't even close. Even though law enforcement worked really hard to make the case to voters standing is all the usual cards in the deck. You know the Willie Horton playbook, crime is increasing the fear based mailers in the voter saw through them. And Kate, of course, is referring to that. 1988 Presidential Willie Horton ad The really helped Republicans win and I think that you know, while the No 1 20 side spend a lot more money than the outside, and I think some folks see that is, you know, money talks. I do think that Given how much we've heard talked about these issues that voters it seems like they knew what they were weighing in on and just didn't want, Teo turn the tide back the other direction. Yeah, you know, proposition 25 that was aimed at Indian cash. Bail was pretty suddenly defeated. What happened there? Yeah, This is a really interesting one. I mean, I think there's a couple things happening. One is that you didn't have the same coalition on the left really backing this reform. There's a schism with a lot of people kind of on the more progressive wing of The Democratic Party. The bail industry also spent a lot of money on this, and I think that the combination of them targeting folks in places like Riverside County and more conservative counties with some of the doubt that was cast by progressives probably was the reason they were able to build this coalition against prop 25. But it does feel like if you look at the kind of universe of all these that that is a bit of an outlier. It was a very complicated questions, so that may have been part of it. So do you think these results could actually encourage state lawmakers to go even further in the future? I do. Although I don't expect to see any dramatic huge reforms come out of the Legislature. I think we'll see what we've seen in years past, which is piecemeal attempts to kind of dismantle some of the harsher sentencing laws. I do think from the outside that we're going to see more pressure from advocacy groups to push the Legislature further. It's worth noting that just before the election The Sisters of Polly class who was one of the crime victims who has really helped spur the three strikes movement in California, came out to say that they want to see reforms and that they are unhappy with the way three strikes when the way their sister's name was used. So lawmakers may not go as far as voters, but they're going to get some pressure. Well, thanks
"lagos" Discussed on The Creativity Campus Podcast
"I don't know how to make money from are like the family in the town I grew up in there wasn't really anyone around Lagos. Say that was an artist making money. So it didn't seem like a realistic career option and I'll see the internet wasn't a thing then so you couldn't just go online and see other people around you. All you could do was see him around you like within your town so as well that's not career. So I'm going to have to somehow make something I can still be creative yet used kind of maths and physics. And so at that point I decided maybe architecture the right route to go. Okay, because it's allowing me to still be creative use a pencil in theory of nullification really on the computer but home and then use that kind of math physics side of it and merge it together and that's a high-paying career.

"In Nigeria's largest city legos reports are coming in of security forces opening fire tonight on unarmed demonstrators the demonstrators had been protesting in fact against police brutality according to several eyewitnesses the live rounds hit several people details on casualties have not yet been confirmed. This evening's violence erupted after the Lagos State government imposed a twenty four hour curfew in response to the growing protests against police violence. Yesterday protesters blocked a major expressway in Lagos and also targeted the main airport shutting down terminals Judeh John was a lawyer and journalist and Lagos earlier today I asked him how people in the city were responding to the curfew. People in a frenzy panicked people are constant appointments people are running home. Lagos notorious for heavy traffic transportation is a nightmare and so I've just feel so sad for people who would have to be rushing home and David cuts under ruled. It's well before many people usually get home from work. I've even seen suggestions on twitter cautioning those not close to home to head to a hotel. Why did authorities take such action what prompted this Nigeria's security systems if the mess that incentivized protect powerful on the privilege against citizens The government in this atmosphere of chaos. Must have made strategy conclusion that the easiest thing to do is keep everybody hope. Just a sense of will not have the capacity to contain spiraling protests on. We should do the easiest thing for us to do to keep this on their ups. The problem with that is that citizens expect that the government should be taken action to protect constitional protests citizenship but the punished. For the government's inability to secure life on property, which ironically is the point of the protests in the first place. So while I can send me a tree she, it's the thinking that led to this. It said Selena against them because even though you can see, yes, people understand that we care on this trees the government was trying to get control over fluid situation. Students expected mental thought of a better way to do this that doesn't infringe on the rights of peaceful protests on the rights of freedom of assembly. So today when you say the police system in Nigeria a mess, a lot of Nigerians point I two SARS a special anti robbery squad, the unit that actually prompted all these protests and now the demands of the protesters have grown beyond just a narrow focus on the SARS unit. What are protesters calling for? Now any serious blended engaged government should have anticipated that the conditions that covid nineteen hundred presented would stimulate already restless citizenry to get on the streets in Nigeria. Young people overwhelmingly. Tired, of bad, governance, they're tired of what appears to be disengaged disconnected. Government, that's the crux of the matter people just feel like the government's a disconnected from the demand the desires of every major ends what people are really tired of is Goldman that doesn't care when citizens die. That's the problem and onto citizens believe that the government is not just going to react to the protests at the time. The government understands that this is about disappointment in the system. The demands will keep on multiplying.

"We'll be looking at covered. Nineteen oil price and the Nigerian economy and to go along in discussion with me and help make sense of the direction in which we're going We have Wilson is senior economist with the Curia Economic Summit. Welcome thank you. It's a blizzard. Now please introduce yourself Mr Tillis a little bit more about yourself. My knees will in remember. An economist currently work as an economist with Journey Economic Summit Group where I get to do research on. Also engage in policy advocates. So it's not just about researching them but it goes about seeing how we can engage government to implement the recommended Sean. Style we put forward. And that's basically what I did. A Soviet this global pandemic has defined twenty twenty and Nigeria is no exception. What is your opinion on? Its impact on the economy so far. So it's unfortunate that the world is going through this right now grew You know the Coronado virus situation. He's not being funny. Series of Google Shutdown Donald factories. Shut Down Post We've also had an increasing number of cases you know from on China moving over to the United States equally on Europe in general even here in Africa across all different continent. So it's not been an easy one so the number of dead cases out of also increased as well but on the economic side on coming back home here in Nigeria. We've seen how festival so they are different of several transmission mechanism. So do one of them is the price channel where we've seen how demand for could drop significantly physically driven by low low industrial activities. Even people aren't even going out so they lure demand for transport services Which means that based on for fuel? So we've seen cases where KUDA advice features the beat features even wins into a negative so people were actively paying to sell the crude Brains We've seen the drug prices to below twenty dollars per barrel. So that's one key. Effect on also worrisome. I made you couldn't even point. So it's crude because his Such retail with so much put from different places different continent different countries. Saudi Arabia Russia's to you know going on with these war who controlled the market so that creates a lot of uncertainty and outlook for the price of crude which we all knew that It's a major to tell me. Not How would home because who those who? Who Do. I need surprise? Oats to also have accused in relation to grow now reserves Fake thing go. Men's revenue and also can boost in external an exports earnings. So the woman days that drove a significant drop in crude oil project. What we're experiencing it means go. Mint will not be able to meet its financial obligations so things like team salaries which are very important to of things that Keno costs to keep the government running things like infrastructure investment in education healthcare spending unlivable would be severely affected as a result of the decline include a price so that was one effects off the virus pandemic on on major out. And we all know that. Didn't they drink on every dependent on government last recession you? What dresses dot point? One days trouble. We'd Goldman finances that direct linkages into the system of course demand going down ability to meet for an exchange needs becomes Richard Grind fixed on our reserves of approaching five dollars. Fallen significantly on this is made was that we don't have adequate savings fiscal bofors because this this is what countries rely on this point in time to see if we can't get rid of and you only need to drive into saving but right now we're GonNa have got so it's a gesture switch on major. It's not an easy one and a lot of a lot of things of ancient would need to go on what we do now because projections. I've said that the recession is inevitable. We come up way so the question then is what is the how come show that. We don't get to the bottom economic depression new and show that we even if we get into research on become come back because he's just a word it's deficts lives and people who are jobs prizes. We'll go up the poll. Become for many people would fall below the poverty line so these are some of the reality. Is that likely to come on onboard going into next year? So that's one. Tim Buck of price on that. Transmission Magnesium is the fact that cinch off and on trade. He's also been disrupted movement. You know challenges and the global supply chain. So there's an overall materials on this show groups that need to be used in production of what I would also be affected especially when many of the global economy is experiencing lockdown economic activities so? I know that Chanel is through the local disruption intensive Destroy activities locally in Niger. Due to look into restriction so that in itself is a very big space that would also planned in parks and we can imagine for almost a month. We've not read it much economics to c.s in my GDP particularly for you on these continues into it took me June so what if you compared to? Gdp growth egos was that we claim to be lower than what we had by this time last year. So that's an eight. Direct hits on economic activities even do Production of essential temp like food drugs on cool but non-essential also very key down. These needs me to the impact on some sectors so far east on the manufacturing sector. Would you want to do it? Because as much respect for the other sectors within during that fall within the enormous I shall read. That's locked fates cement funding loved the older non-essential sickle sub sectors within the manufacturing sector few grocery goes factor and say coins in nineteen grew by just zero point two percent from two point one percents in twentieth. So that tells you that already you experience in decline so these kind of shock to the system much more declaim talks won't key six also come additional one hundred thirty entertainment and recreation. Saito would be heat So tells you restaurants on it basically places. We have gatherings of people events of one on one key areas that are affected by these. Look down that Saito would be obscene. Li La down what we had last year on undertake construction sector. So we've had a case way Because Structure Signal always relies heavily on government spending. So if you look at the jets let one dedicated to capital spending close to over to treat with being. Shall we D- falling oil prices to review the Govan. How to read either budgets to using the bench Bockel Fizi da Barra even with that. And still you know STU opinions going around that that's unit so We may not have any projections because he's not just oil time also annoying so if the economy's on found a major commitment to these you know try to be mean to spray the requires without also means one. I- revenue companies and install commentary so we would also let me see declaiming noyer so that's over of course without fixed construction and even right now the the main focus has been to contain the spread of the buyers. If you notice most of the government's batsmen Goldman spending than channel to hell and some of the sectors. So what are we talking about roots structure on a really apple so to construct contact though would definitely be be hard heats sectors so there's also transport take the transportation movement of goods four segments to real road and see dressing. The transportation was actually the fastest growing thing Clinton in nineteen. I see deep so this time. It's the hot heat. Because the restrictions on the movement is either was one of the best sectors valid affected. Even so it'd be lots of so we would probably have naked down declining. Good enough transports sector across all the different categories so from the air transports to transport a real transport so also social services sector so you have education on our very key. Sick does that. I think that's a result of of the lockdown for education show downloads to and that in itself tells.

It's time they make of Kobe. Nine people go in and around wearing face masks. Well you might ask. Does it really protect you from getting with nineteen? These are the questions I two. I alliterate I'm going to answer right here on this. Podcast brought to you by Africa. Business Review Films on will be bunking all those means on both questions that you have sit back and enjoy Africa business radio to it a profitable Africa so we'll facemask protecting me from contracting nineteen. Well the reality of that question is yes it will protect you from contracting Kobe. Nineteen now here's the reason why when you pissing coughs or sneezes as I said earlier. They released droplets. These droplets are like tiny packets. Tiny bombs that contain the Kobe. Nineteen virus now. These droplets can't go very far. I'm so the president cost sneezes and the gets one meets in front of them. But sometimes if you are closer than one meets on so if we didn't want the range of the peasant who coughs or sneezes every possibility that those droplets might get into your mouth or your nose or even your eyes and so what can be done is that you actually wear a face mask if you are in an environment where we've been vicinity of anyone. Who IS COUGHING SNEEZING? It will offer us some degree of Protection. However you got to be careful because you must make sure that you don't touch the front of your mass with your bands because touching the front the mask. If he's got droplets on its you can actually transfer those droplets from the mask to your eyes or to your news. What's your mouth? And so avoid touching the front of your face mask and people weren't sure if it was necessary for everyone's wear face masks but some countries and even h and right now even in the US they have recommended unmanned data like New York. That if you have to leave your house you are mandated to wear a face mask and that seems to help. Last seems to reduce the spread of the Kobe. Nineteen virus and so it is what is presently being recommended so simple question is. Es facemask do offer us some protection. Against in nineteen virus it can be the regula cloth facemasks with defined text doesn't have to be D. N. magnify from us. But if you're going to ask I mean why not so.

Ogun abu However you know keeping a distance from each other working from our relying on your safety net these measures which advised by. who against the coronavirus pandemic. i'm meet for parts of the war.

There's no such thing as You know social distancing yourself many have been in those for almost a month now in lagos you know. Some are privilege of to stock japan. Shoe had loss of You know hand sanitizers wipes facemasks food and basic needs but many others rely on today earn in for them to be able to provide for themselves. Now this safety nets have not been readily available in nine. The government you know in the states and the federal government have been you know doing their bit. But there's a common sane industries now people say hong kong via you know the land mass of legos. It's unbelievable small landmass with a lot of people. Fifteen to twenty million people depending on if new york you know never sleeps because the lights are always on legos. Never sleep because there's no power most times because you know people stay outdoors to get some air so that they don't choke and down when they're getting some air. You know a lot of things can happen you know. Gosh relies on a lot of informal economy. It's the economic capital of nigeria. Was still you know. It's the informal economic capital of west. Yes because you know mining curious street might manicures you know it is very novel is nothing you'll find all about what this how these people you know survive and these people the ones with houses leaving communities where forty people or more share butin. Share a bathroom you know. So how do you social distance from that. It's different from what it is all about the world that is why you know we need to look inward and look at our own peculiar challenges to solve our own problems and You know the you know. The government has been trying to the state government who look at things from a holistic manner. Which is what we've been clamoring for for years and years. The local governments need to be you know powered by themselves because it is true. You know local governments that we can get primary healthcare now. We get a lot of things happening for people in their words in the zones. You know that is why we need made in niger's solutions you know I can continue to speak and speak about many things that you know you know. We need to do but think about it. Even beyond the people that living in penury Two weeks coronavirus case was confirmed in lagos doctors in the fcat pooja announced that they were going on strike. Overwhelmed compete salaries. Those are doctors. The people you know part of the tri staff supposed to help stop the spread of the virus. You know in it's it's it's just very baffling and what we must do. Now is craft innovative solutions based on our own unique similarities. And and this not mean that we have one solution for the whole country. We simply need to make these solutions. Grassroot solutions in densely populated passive goes must differ from the suburbs dissolution from alabama's differ from scanty islands in yenagoa. We need solutions that are based on local challenges of the people in places. I haven't had cases you know. Pat glendon yanagawa. If people live on an island and then you you stop them from traveling mainland to get the resources then they will look for other ways that we can cost this spread if there is a case amongst them so we must envision solutions for when was also envision could solution for when coronavirus spikes because according to some experts know above the ncdc and lagos state officials. You know we haven't reached peak yet so at that point we must plan for it on. That is why we need mayday niger. Solutions because men for example even in league us right now looking at pieces like but agree. Yes the i know. Cases in fire we buy in when we talked me. Goes we just think maybe the metro yeah places like the you know the mainland ikeja. You're not like that but you know. Expect that somewhere. Like but i agree. Those who are four areas Giant by dish be locked down that it doesn't get there and then they should find a way to ensure that in their life can continue their but within that space absolutely should be solutions. Need to be designed for each part of and that's why you know if a practice through federalism you know you would help us really Solve problems for people where they are rather than trying to use uniform solutions or national solutions to solve local problems. We what has buddha's back over here. So maybe now we can start. You know doing those things set in short term.

"For Disease Control the NCDC as well as other authorities who have a specific practices in Kobe. Carbon Copied Nineteen Now social distancing and other precautions Also in the mix. So why do we need made in Nigeria Solutions Thanks thanks for having US. Social distance in as walks in part because the the government shutdown. And you know bothers movement in Lagos Ogun Abu However you know keeping a distance from each other working from relying on your safety net these measures which advised by. Who you know against the coronavirus pandemic made for parts of the war. That cannot afford to retreat in individualism for millions of people in cities. Like Lagos and Kano. There's no such thing as You know social distancing yourself many in those for almost a month now legos. You know some are privileged enough to stop the panthers who had loss of You know hand sanitizers wipes facemasks food and basic needs but many others rely on d today and in for them to be able to provide for themselves now. These safety nets have not been readily available in Nigeria. The government you know in these states and the federal government have been doing their bit but there's the comments on histories now people say Hong Kong Alvar. You know the land mass of Lagos is unbelievable. Small landmass with a lot of people teen to twenty million people depending on where you are. If New York you know never sleeps because the lights are always on Lagos never sued. Because there's no power most times because you know man people stay outdoors to get some air some so that they don't choke down. Wendy are getting some air you know. A lot of things can happen. You know. Illegals relies on a lot of informal economy. It's the economic capital of Nigeria. Was still you know. It's the informal economic capital of West. Yes because mining curious street might manicures. You know it's very novel is nothing you'll find all about. This is how these people survive and these people the ones who houses leaving communities where forty people or more share building share a bathroom you know. So how do you social distance from that? It's different from what it is all about the world that is why you know we need to look inward. I look at our own peculiar challenges to solve our own problems and You know you know. The government has been trying to the state government who look at things from a holistic manner. Which is what we've been clamoring for for years and years. The local governments need to be powered by themselves. Because it is true. You know local governments that we can get primary healthcare now. We get a lot of things happening for people in their words in the zones. You know that is why we need made in nine hundred solutions. You know I can continue to speak. Speak about many things that you know you know. We need to do but think about it. Even beyond the people that live in penury Two weeks coronavirus case was confirmed in Lagos doctors in the AFC. Booja announced that they were going on strike. Overwhelmed compete salaries. Those are doctors. The people you know part of the Tri Stat supposed to help stop the spread of the Earth. You know in it's it's it's just very baffling and what we must do. Now is crafty innovative solutions based on our own unique similarities. And this not mean that we have one solution for the whole country. We simply need to make these solutions graduate solutions in densely populated passively must differ from the suburbs dissolution from Alabama's differ from you know scanty islands in Nagoya. We Need Solutions. That are based on local challenges of the people set in places. I haven't had cases you know. Pat Glennon Yanagawa. If people live on an island and then you you stop them from traveling. Mainland to get resources Dandy will look for other ways that we can cost the spread if there is a case amongst them so we must envisioned solutions for win was also invasion could solution for win coronavirus spikes because according to some experts above the NCDC and Lagos officials. We haven't reached that peak yet. So at that point we must plan for it on That is why we need. Maybe Niger solutions because men for example even in Lagos right. Now you're looking at places like but agree yes. There are no cases in fire. We buy in. We look when we talk me goes we. Oh we just think maybe the metro yeah places like the you know the mainland Ikeja Nasty like that. But I'll expect that somewhere like but agree Those who who are four years I jog by be locked down. Saturday doesn't get there and then they will find a way to ensure that you know their life can continue their but within that space absolutely should be solutions. Need to be designed for each part of and that's why you know If a practice true federalism you would help us really Solve problems for people where they are rather than trying to use uniform solutions or national solutions to solve local problems. Which is what has pulled us back over here so maybe now we can start. You know doing those anything's set in short term. You know reforms on medium-term reforms for us to achieve what we need to do as it totally. Now as my giresse foremost think-tank. That's you guys. At the end she What are some of the things that you are doing to make these This happened that is You know looking for 'em local solutions to some of these challenges there be any issue works across twelve policy commissions for the five mighty and three communities of practice. I knew sound like a lot of numbers and a lot of decisions. What these things through. All Saito's economy from agriculture to human capital and think about it. Agriculture has been very effective because a lot of people have had to be at home but even in upper parts of the country where a lot of agricultural things are happening. These people simply produce that he can ship to larger cities and their businesses have been affected profits. We are affected. You know roadblocks on the road and everything happened on. The road has made some of your produce. You Know Rothfusz stop you know before getting into the market you know A friend of mine told me about you. Know Market Women. The cheese she went to the market as a kid has an essential service and provide and salt trucks and trucks on carts of Rotten fruit being thrown away and she was conversation with me and said why can't do things be given out to the people before they you know. So these are ways that we can Solve those problems. As as as a government we are not the government you know at the NASD beyond what we're doing You know it's In many many angles across these sectors that I mentioned currently advocating for short-term media long-term policies that will aid survival of Nigerians. Our modern surviving. That will help them. Thrive through short term. Because you know currently as coronavirus you know then medium-term plant and long-term plan so we're having discussions which will you know Coming to you know would unravel in the near future beyond policies. We have sport several piracy of players to make generous contributions to was a public private partnership to flatten the curve. resources that are now being used to us this current and looming challenges of the future and also it is important to note that Dylan pandemic you know It's quite different from Wendy Spanish flu was there. Or you know all of the other pandemics of the past this different way enabled by technologies time so therefore to tackle the pandemic the as you supported you know eventers platform firm foundations practice of strange which is getting young. You know vibrant innovators to come up with solutions solutions. That can help us solve the challenges of this novel virus. You know. Many of them came on board you. You'll be amazed about many ideas that are people. Are you know the way that you know? Young Nigerians one to execute and change future able to Help if you seven of them one of them imagine what they create novell solution based on technology duck and help contact tracing things that have been adopted by certain state governments now and people are using it to trace context people that are had devised tracing contacts around there. But what are we doing down to use innovative solutions? And these things were created by grown solution so this is very critical is vital. And don't forget when we get through this pandemic which we will. This solutions will not just go today. They'll continue to you. Know Nacho them and use them for all the challenges that confront us in the future so this is the way that we can create made. Niger.

"Please go ahead as we said this. Stick into your nostril to test you for the corona virus disease. It might be uncomfortable but definitely not painful. So just relax. I will get this done in the next one minutes well about is probably what you hear if you were being tested. For THE CORONA VIRUS DISEASE. Well on this podcast by Africa Business Review and the film's I'll be answering people's burning questions that you might have on the Corona Virus Disease. I need and I will be doing this right here and right now Africa Business Radio too. It's a profitable Africa so some people have asked me so that the right now what happens when somebody thinks they have virus disease and the answer is he wants to tell them. What did they do? The blood sample liberal at a urine sample. And say okay. So what do that? What we call a nasal firing gel swap now. What happens is that the instead is stick into your nostril to reach US far back as the back of your throat and I knew that sound on uncomfortable but how collected now the inset specials swab stick that looks like cotton board so it has a long shaft and it also has synthetic material at the end of that. Shut the nostril. Let us to rob the buckle the tools and then the sample is transported to a special lab in which is special tests called reverse transcriptase preliminaries. Chain reaction is conducted when that test comes up positive then the person is confirmed to have Karuna virus disease. What they look for in that is actually the genetic material of the virus that we have collected from that news of Gel swab all that tests or other methods that can be used to collect samples to confirm for the president of the coronavirus disease. Include an ORAL FOR RANGEL'S BOB. That just means the mouth is where they go through to get the sample just inside the stick into the mouth and the back of the throat is Putin sample we pops up and then spits into special content that is transported to the lab and then also what we call them for bronchial. Al Ula Varghese done but who are on ventilators now all these big teams for the various methods that we used to get samples to test for the virus disease.

"Get around round everyone that still stands the APP keepers. Shot this down so unless you have been living in Antarctica or on Iraq. You should know what I'm talking about. The buzzer this dancing and the koruna virus so without further ado questions that went out on this podcast brought to you by Africa Business Review and the film's My name is Dr Dalil Arena and I'm addressing your questions questions questions. All the questions on Kobe. One thousand nine hundred. Do this right here on right now. Africa Business Radio toured profitable Africa. Why is is the virus? Pandemic sued dangerous. Well I'll tell you if because it is so easily transmissible. Eighty so communicate with that from human to human transmission is extremely easy through droplets infections. The other reason why it is so dangerous is the fact that when it gets into our bodies he'd I truly attacks our lungs on our lawns. The primary all done that help us to breathe wedding. Does that we can't get enough oxygen to our bodies and so we eventually need ventilator support. An Intensive Care Unit Admission. Another reason why it is particularly dangerous is the fact that it is. A new virus is a new virus. And so we don't have any vaccines for it wouldn't have any drugs to treat it unfortunately chloroquine while it has been said that he has helped in some patients. Enough research has been done for to actually recommended is the teen drug for the use of treatments of Kobe. Nineteen let's forget about using and ginger and lemon and the other thing song people have said that we should use the Komo gold and one thousand nine hundred some similar interests. I'm so people have. How do I have the Komo called Aquavit? Nineteen so what I'd say in that case. Is that if you have a cough and running news which both copied one thousand nine hundred. The common cold can have either is if either as will it is unlikely to be the common cold but if there is no fever than is likely that you have the Komo cold so people are just worried at as soon as the cough. How the Nineteen. But that really is indicates because a lot of conditions have similar features with nineteen so for instance the common cold might resemble could be seen especially in the bad. There is a cough and there is also running. News fee is extremely unusual with the common cold. Well fever is extremely common with Koby. Nineteen so if you have a cough and runny nose and you don't have a fever is very unlikely that you have could be nineteen Saudi Koi. Alright so we'll just see it. You'll be fine kind of person who has had coup in nineteen and recovered. Kaku with nineteen again. That's a very good question that I want to address because it's really valid. Unfortunately not enough. Science research has been done on this subject so I'm reports have been made about some patients who have recovered tested negative and then contracted virus again. Such that detected positive mount these cases. Well they have been reported. No one show as to why that happened. Was that the immune system of the patient wasn't able to clear the virus art effectively or the negative tests was probably really negative. All these questions remain to be answered but as time lose by science will be able to find the answers to these questions. I hope we've been able to address some of the issue that you might have regarding with nineteen the mystery surrounding the questions that you might have on the next podcast answer even more of the questions that you.
