The year 2020 was registered as one of the most health challenging years in the history of Uganda and world over with the development of the Corona Virus Disease (COVID 19) pandemic. Globally, COVID 19 has reminded historians of the deadliest pandemic in the history of mankind- the 1918 Spanish flu which affected an estimated 500 million people and killed 20-50 million people worldwide. 

Despite many tiring months physically, emotionally and financially, COVID 19 continues to present similar global threats to human life just like the Spanish flu in 1918. Unfortunately, even in this new year most Ugandans are yet to come to terms with the severity of this pandemic as it continues to render majority bedridden, and in some cases ending lives.  

The severity is in the harsh reality that no part of the world has gone unaffected. It is a cross-border and cross-continent viral disease, simply meaning there is no limit to its spread. An air borne virus that spreads through air onto surfaces by acts of coughing and sneezing. These contaminated surfaces are touched by human hands who infect themselves through touching the soft parts of their bodies. These soft parts are the eyes, nostrils and mouth which are the main entry points for the virus to cause sickness.

Realistically, COVID 19 is the easiest disease to prevent because it is a viral disease whose prevention mechanism is known and can be avoided if each of us deliberately makes a choice to cautiously do what we are supposed to do to keep ourselves safe. As mentioned in the last months by the World Health Organization and the Ministry of Health in Uganda, there are four pillars of health which are very important in the fight against COVID 19 and to be reminded these are;

The physical act of not touching your face without washing your hands with soap or the use of hand sanitizer, putting on a face mask that covers both the nose and the mouth to reduce the chances of the virus infiltrating in your body, a face shield is an added advantage to the mask and social distancing of at least 2 meters between persons.

Most importantly yet least mentioned is adequate nutrition. If your immune system is boosted with at least 60 required nutritional essentials on daily basis, it has a very high chance of fighting the virus if you are infected. Some of these nutritional essentials include but not limited to; 29 different types of minerals, 16 different types of vitamins, 12 different types of essential amino acids, 3 different types of essential fatty acids, consuming adequate oral fluids among which is water because the virus also causes dehydration.  Simply adequate nutrition is having a good and balanced diet of carbohydrates, proteins, fat, fibre, vitamins, minerals and water. 

 

Another pillar is adequate body exercise. With COVID 19, there are specific exercises that need to be done to improve proper respiratory system to function well. The lungs need to have the ability to perform fully to enable proper breathing. The exercise does not allow the mucous to accumulate thereby inhibiting it from sticking the lower part of the lungs to the diaphragm muscle. This normally results to a COVID-19 victim feeling suffocated while breathing. As a result, the victim will require external improvement by introduction of artificial breathing. This explains why COVID-19 patients end up in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) which facilities are limited in the country. In this case it is better to have frequent exercises of the lungs such breathing complications.  

Adequate rest is essential.  The normal human being just like any machine requires to be serviced as frequently as possible for the body to function well. In this case, people need to take leave off from work. If you work for 8 hours, you need rest for 8 hours in order to allow the body to relax for better performance. Once in a while, take your family out in a quiet place in order to relax the body so that you can improve performance of your brain. This means having time off and making the brain relax. It is quite unfortunate that human beings care so much about their machines such as cars that are often serviced after a certain mileage but fail to do the same to their own bodies. Therefore, just like the way you want the engine of your car serviced and rested as frequently as possible, you need to do the same to the engine of the body which is the brain unless if you want to have an engine knock. In this case the management of COVID-19 is basically about having adequate rest amongst other pillars.

The science of steaming has been proven to be very effective in controlling and preventing very many diseases. This practice of steaming is borrowed from the Traditional Chinese Medicine concept (TCM) that has been existing for over 5000 years. The concept believes that the body should be detoxified, nourished and protected (yin and yan) for one to be healthy. This practice explains why the Chinese and Japanese live longer than other human beings in other continents. Unfortunately, very many human beings do not practice steaming as it is associated to the ancient times. In as far as COVID-19 19 is concerned studies have revealed that the virus can actually stay longer around the nasal sinuses dormant before it formulates colonies and become active in order to begin destroying the respiratory system. In this case, steaming is highly recommended among other practices such as taking warm oral fluids with the nutritional essentials to destroy the virus. When done rightly, COVID-19 patients will rapidly improve as steaming is known not only for relaxing the body muscles but also to improve on the respiratory system.

Prevention is not only about the Standard Operation Procedures that are commonly publicized but includes all the pillars mentioned above.  The responsibility lies on every global citizen to adhere to the 4 pillars to prevent the further loss of lives. The fight against COVID 19 is knowledge and implementation based. Let 2021 be a year we commit to keep healthy and fit to fight COVID 19.

The Nurturing Of Great Ideas

The Nurturing Of Great Ideas

Great ideas are conceived by great minds. Better still, these ideas are birthed by focused, determined and persistent minds. Conception can keep ideas hidden but birth takes them out of darkness into the light. Birth brings the ideas to the knowledge and enjoyment of humankind. However just like a child is born and needs to be nurtured so does the birth of a great idea need to be nurtured too. The capability and ability to nurture these ideas is what determines their success or failure. Oftentimes, when an idea is birthed, the intention is to nurture it with an ultimate goal of bearing fruit but the realization of this goal results from the ability and capability to nurture the idea to maturity. This explains why businesses, companies and institutions that are birthed either survive, thrive or die. They survive because there is hope to thrive, they thrive because they are bearing fruit and unfortunately they can also die if the roots dry up thus bearing no fruit.  The dryness of the roots does not always imply the death of a business or an institution or a company. These roots can be resurrected through watering and in context realizing and acknowledging the problem and finding solutions to resurrection and sustenance to sustainable ventures.

When we talk about the roots we are not talking about founders only despite the fact that they conceive these great ideas in addition to other contributing factors like funding. The roots of any existing business or institution majorly lies in the human capital employed, the education systems that shapes this human capital and the level to which technology is embraced especially in this 21st century. If the human capital is skilled, professional, collaborative and eager to continue learning and exploring, competitive in healthy terms and sensitive to the needs of their clients then this creates firm basis for well watered roots that will aid any venture to operational and financial stability and to flourish. When we begin to see signs of flourishing then the company or institution is becoming sustainable with additional packages like human capital remunerations to sustain employee satisfaction for improved returns. Part of the continuous sustainability of institutions lies in the repeated cycle of contributors to stability. That is why the great men who bring to light great ideas must devise a sustainable work plan to maintain this cycle for decades and generations to come. Such great men often move from riches to becoming wealth creators.

The 21st century world is fast changing and growing towards embracing the dominating space of science, technology, innovation and creativity. Human capital alone is not sufficient to drive an idea to the depth of satisfactory fruition but embracing the space of technology can make great ideas greater beyond national, regional and continental boundaries. Therefore as great thinkers bring to light great ideas they must embrace a work plan involving the tech space to improve, refine, redefine and direct their ideas to serve the world plentifully.  Technology is holding people accountable, it is streamlining people and their activities, and it is yielding high returns and leading to fast growing and recognized businesses. A great idea must have a balance of human and tech capital. These two are interlinked to create satisfactory results, for wider connectivity, outreach and impact.

Every aspect of today’s evolving world is interlinked that without one part, impact is compromised. To complete the sufficiency of great ideas, the academia undoubtedly has a significant role to play. Human capital must grow in knowledge and technology requires enlightened human capital to invent, to improve or refine it to serve the needs of the fast changing world. The drivers of the education system need to embrace change to align their services with the changing world needs. An education system that still lives twenty or thirty decades back cannot serve efficiently and effectively today. The need to shape the human capital of tomorrow must start with deliberately improved education systems today. Academic institutions need to know their niche, to grow and develop that niche, to be identified with that niche, to incorporate that niche in all its programmes to enable a holistic approach that embraces world needs.

There is need to work towards dispensation of specialized services in the education sector. This is what Uganda and most developing nations need, to be more globally competitive and highly demanded world over. The urge for an employable population that is skilled, knowledgeable, technologically enlightened, innovative and creative in thinking and application is what will define great ideas and their application to greatness.
