Train Collision

So far, 2020 has been a difficult year for us all. The Coronavirus spread out, many people have been dying, and events are being postponed and shut down for health and weather reasons.

It was well known that we should carefully mentally prepare ourselves for the terrible storm that has commenced yesterday morning, Thursday, and is said to end on Saturday.

Due to the terrible heavy rain falls and thunder that had occurred all day yesterday, a train accident had taken place.  What was said by the press is that two trains that were full of innocent passengers had accidentally collided. That lead to the injuring of 13 passengers.

Fortunate for us, no casualties or deaths were reported, only the 13 people that were injured. Because of this accident, officials had forced trains and metro lines to shut down momentarily, leaving trains and the metro lines both out of service.

It was a precaution that had to be taken, the weather is in horrible condition and we don’t want deaths, let alone injuries to begin with. One train boarded 991 passengers while the other held 989; both trains had been making their way from the Upper Nile Delta to Cairo.

The Ministry of Health, Khaled Megahid, is calming down people by telling them that the injuries are quite minor and that people shouldn’t worry. The accident happened somewhere between Imbaba and Ramses train stations.

The injured were quickly driven to Nasser Institute in Shoubra. The accident was claimed to be due to the heavy rain which is why it was crucial to shut things down temporarily. The rains and thunder made it very hard for people to maneuver their way through the streets with cars or other vehicles, a train accident could’ve been more fatal.

Government officials are strictly advising folks to stay indoors and avoid using public transportation in hopes of avoiding casualties. Fortunate for us, Hala Zayed, the Health Minister, claims to be overseeing a management team for crisis that will be operating 24hrs a day to follow up on any emergencies that could occur because of the weather.

Be sure to stay safe and follow the procedures if you want to make it past the weekend. Enjoy the rain all you want but be careful and avoid street lamps, trees, or anything that could fall from the wind.

Cairo University Making History

Published

on

Cairo University

In light of the Coronavirus outbreak, many scientists, researchers, and doctors have struggled to contain let alone combat the pandemic. Which is why Cairo University took things to a whole new level by initiating 5 research units.

The research unit is composed of around 25 scientists, professors, and researchers who will commence working on developing medical treatment for the Coronavirus .Associate Professor of Biophysics, Abo Elfiky, is part of this new found research team and has already published two research articles in various international journals to show people the possible treatments for COVID-19.

The research project that the following people are about to embark on is surely to be effective and to make us very proud to be a part of this. We have found out from this initiative that the virus enters the human body. The spikes that are latched onto the virus are in charge of sticking to the normal body cells we have in our body.

Cairo University needs  to crack the code by trying to understand the dynamics of the spike protein as well as the receptors that are on our cells, only then will they be capable of finding a means to stop the virus from entering the cells in the first place.

On a side note, the team is also looking for a way to target and fight the virus before making its way into our cells. They’re also finding a way to prevent the nucleus from duplicating the virus’s DNA thus reproducing throughout the victim’s entire body.

The general idea of finding a cure for a virus is to work with what is known to have worked with other diseases. In this case, they have tested drugs that have treated Malaria, HIV, and Ebola. Doctor Elfiky is working on re-purposing the medication used for Hepatitis C.

With that said, this doesn’t mean that everyone should empty out their pharmacies from Hepatitis C medication, we don’t need another disaster. Trump had previously caused a conflict where he had misleadingly tweeted that the Malaria medication is a game changer in the history of medicine. This had caused a shortage for the medication, leaving people who are in deep need of it quite sick.

We’re glad progress is being made and that Egypt is partaking in changing events as well as devoting their time and efforts to help save not just their citizens, but the world as a whole.

The Brighter Side of the Coronavirus

Coronavirus

Ever since we have detected the beginning of the Coronavirus, people have gone rabid with worry and fear. Our community and citizens of the world were in fear for their health and even lives. We have lost many loved ones throughout this pandemic crisis, which is why people are scared for their lives.

Many countries around the globe are forced to stay at home for their own safety as well as the safety of others. The government has taken it into their liberty to use this free time where the streets are empty to fully and thoroughly sterilize the streets in hopes of getting rid of the Coronavirus outbreak.

So far, people keep thinking that the pandemic is only bringing negativity and taking away the lives of so many people, but what if you saw things from a different perspective? Have you ever wondered that there actually is a positive side to this virus? That maybe this is God’s way of reminding us of the things we have always neglected and keeping the environment safe?

Ever since the Coronavirus commenced, less people were roaming the streets. This lead to fewer cars in the streets which lead to less pollution. Do you notice the chain that is going on? Mankind has always been destructive to mother nature. The population is increasing on a global scale which means more pollution, more sickness, more trouble.
Just two weeks ago, Egypt has experienced a heavy three day sand, thunder, and rainstorm, and has taken a big toll on people. Some lives were lost, whether animal or human, and the streets were left completely flooded, leaving people stuck at home.

A similar situation had occurred a few days ago in Dubai where they had witnessed severe storms and thunder. Haven’t you guys considered that this is God’s way of trying to clean and rid the world of all diseases and pollution and to even help calm down the virus? If these storms hadn’t occurred, people would still have gone out of their houses which probably would have provoked the virus to spread even more.

Not just that, but ever since quarantine has commenced, pollution has decreased, animals as well as endangered species are no longer endangered. See what’s happening? The human race has become very destructive to the land they live on as well as their inhabitants, whether they be human or animal.

Take this time to truly reconsider and think of all the things that went wrong; why they went wrong because we are the reason and we are the cause. We are the reason the virus is spreading because we’re too selfish to stay home for a few days to ensure the lives of others. We are the reason why animals and rare species are getting endangered. We are the main reason and source of land and air pollution.

Look at the world today, everything is clean, animals are healthier and happier, the world is a better place without humans interfering. So please, take the time to rethink everything that is going on and plan for a better and cleaner future. The virus was just a reminder to us, to awaken us for all the wrong doings and destructiveness that we have created upon each other. We’ve taken many things for granted, the lives of our loved ones and even our parents. Use the time to rethink.

Presidents

In light of all these conflicts that have been rising ever since we have discovered the Coronavirus, our President Abdel Fattah el Sisi had phoned Xi Jinping, the Chinese president in order to discuss all the ways they could assist each other to end the Coronavirus outbreak.

President Sisi had praised and honored China for all its outstanding methods in hopes of trying to cope as well as contain the virus amidst their country. Which is why he had expressed great interest in wanting to partner up with them and cooperate together using both China and Egypt’s health institutions.

On a positive note, Xi Jinping had also expressed great interest in all the methods Egypt has been using so far as to try to contain the virus as much as possible, many countries have shown gratitude and support for our way of dealing with the Coronavirus.

China is in deep need of help during this crisis because their population is double the Egyptian population which makes it even harder to maintain as well as contain. Hence, China is fully ready to help assist Egypt in fighting this as long as they get help and cooperation in return.

On President Sisi’s official Twitter account,he had said that he is closely following up the state’s efforts to combat the spread of the virus, saying “As I pledged yesterday, we are precisely continuing our procedures to combat this pandemic in order to preserve the health and the life of every Egyptian citizen.”

“I call upon all [Egyptians] to fully abide by these measures to keep Egypt in peace and security… I pray to Allah Almighty to grant us success in what we do to serve our dear country, Egypt,” Sisi said.

President Sisi is still stressing on the  crucial importance of us having to remain at home to break the chain once and for all. So far, the number of infected people has risen to 327 with a death toll of 14.

We hope that both countries merging tactics and forces to “break the chain” will help end this outbreak once and for all without any more people having to get hurt.
