Akufo-Addo

Under fire president of Ghana Nana Akufo-Addo has canceled the 9% communication service tax on mobile networks.

On Monday 1st October 2019 the Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications announced that mobile users would pay 9% Communication Services Tax.

This change angered Ghanaians as they lambasted the Akufo-Addo led government for disappointing Ghanaians.

The same day the PURC also announced the increment in utility bills which even infuriated Ghanaians the more.

However, amid the severe criticisms meted out on President Akufo-Addo aka King Promise, he had no option than to cancel the 9% charges on the telecoms.

New footage of Kobe Bryant’s helicopter circling ‘aggressively’ overhead before it crashed has surfaced online.

A witness who captured the moment took to Twitter to share the video of the helicopter circling over Glendale, California, just 30 minutes before the Sikorsky S-76 crashed into a hillside in Calabasas, northwest of Los Angeles on Sunday.

‘I try and video /photograph all the weird stuff happening above my house in Glendale,CA. Unfortunately this morning I didn’t realize I was filming the helicopter Kobe Bryant, his daughter and others were in 31 minutes before they crashed . RIP,’ a Twitter user with the handle @theironlydreams wrote.

Another tweet from the same user claimed that the pilot was performing a very ”aggressive circling maneuver,” that’s why he went outside to film because it was so loud. He added that he ‘observed 1 or 2 circles’ before filming.

Coronavirus: Cure In Sight As Australian Scientists Recreate Virus

Coronavirus

A cure seems to be in sight for the deadly coronavirus after a team of Australian scientists announced that they have recreated the virus.

The breakthrough annoucement made by researchers at the Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity in Melbourne on Wednesday January 29, is expected to quicken the creation of a vaccine.

Doherty Institute Deputy Director, Mike Catton told reporters that they will share the sample which was grown from an infected patient with the World Health Organization and laboratories around the world.

He said;

“We’ve planned for an incident like this for many, many years and that’s really why we were able to get an answer so quickly. This is a step, it’s a piece of the puzzle that we have contributed.”

The recent coronavirus outbreak has killed 132 people in China and infected close to 6,000, after the flu-like virus broke out in the central Chinese city of Wuhan at the end of 2019. Though no death has been reported outside China, there are at least 47 cases confirmed in 16 other countries including in Thailand, France, the US and Australia.

While Chinese authorities said the virus can be trasnsmitted during its incubation period, WHO insisted that it remains unclear whether it is contagious before symptoms appear. WHO added that the incubation period can range from two to 10 days.

Commenting on how the virus is being transmitted, Dr Catton said;

“An antibody test will enable us to retrospectively test suspected patients so we can gather a more accurate picture of how widespread the virus is, and consequently, among other things, the true mortality rate.

“It will also assist in the assessment of effectiveness of trial vaccines.”
