Can you please put the slides in presentation mode?

are the different manifestation/complications such as thrombosis, Kawasaki in children related to the virus strain or subgroups?
Endeshaw Kassa- Debre Markos University
01:13:43
Does the infected person would be again exposed and infected.
philipos
01:15:09
I found the presentation and such great opportunity created by P2P and wonder presenters should also reach out to non-clinical workers and steholders as we are no being encountred with danger of community infection and low level health facilities need to be continuously empowered as I personally saw a health center where one cashier contacted over 50 health workforce....some health units like pharmacies not giving service to the public for the last 10plus days ..so such webinar and information should be well supported and relevant sector (esp MOH, MOE, MOSHE...) should advance it.

Yesterday at a faculty meeting to discuss when to open the school, someone mentioned one big problem in transmission is air conditioning and heating systems that circulate the air. Is this added as warning ?
Abebe Kebede
01:19:39
In Ethiopia or the rest of Africa, why is the number of infections are low ? Why didn’t it grew exponentially as in USA ?

Is effective social distancing possible in Ethiopia, specially in the cities and towns ?
Ashenafi Waktola
01:26:20
Great presentation. Wonderful job P2P. Increased home home clusters are associated with overcrowding in the setting of poverty.
Dessalegn Mekuriaw
01:27:12
Thank you Dr. Gebeyehu for your wonderful presentation
Dr. Taffere M
01:28:57
social distancing is now changed to physical distancing
Abebe Kebede
01:29:27
A great point, the rate of infection the diaspora community might be higher that the rest of the population.
Abebe Kebede
01:30:01
Yes, the term social distancing is not a good one- physical distancing is good
philipos
01:30:34
Dr. Gebeyehu..excellent educative presentation. What do you recommend for Government (MOH, Ministry of education,. ministry of transport, authorities of water, electric utility authorities..to safeguard their people/society.. urban, rural/agriculture, faith based organizations, traditional leaders, media, universities, schools, individuals, regions)
Sirak Kassie
01:31:35
Dr. Gebeyehu, what a great presentation! Thank you.
Dr. Taffere M
01:31:51
the radio message that is played by ethio telecom during calling advises to keep distance about two ermija from some one sneezing or coughing ; I feel this is misleading ; the message should be physical distance from every one in public place
Shishay Tsadik
01:32:19
thank you for the presentation. Question ls there any assessment conducted why use of "Mask" at the community level is not getting to the level of expectation (acceptance, availability, affordability &challnges ). beyond the legal application there should be PPE social marketing and promotion
Almaz Yimer

Greetings to All,
Hanna Demeke
01:33:14
I agree there is a lot of confusion about quarantine vs isloation
Abebe Kebede
01:34:04
If people feel that quarantine is like going to jail they will likely hide themselves.
Oumer
01:35:56
at the current rise in case numbers in addis ababa, don't you think lock down practised at least at sub-city level?
Zemenu Shiferaw
01:36:06
It is a great presentation, how do you see the in and out movement to addis? the number of new case is rising in addis, so dont you think that travel ristriction from addis to regional cities and vice versa?
Dr. Taffere M
01:36:32
shisha houses should be one focis group in ethiopia
Chernet Tegegne
01:36:51

Almaz Yimer
01:36:54
My question is there has been a test done on Mask usage and it was explained that it is a matter of velocity that has been observed on having the mask and with out the Mask and it was summarized all the same in the dissemination of the virus on the environment, as I heard on CNN. can we have your explanation?
Mahad Ali Ghedi
01:37:14
dear sir, if possible share the slides through my email address Alighedi2009@gmail.com

01:37:27
shisha houe, chaat chewers, draft/jambo houses though new regulation on paper..they are dangerous. but market place and transportation areas more dangerous
Getachew
01:37:58
I think, Practicing lockdown in selected sub city in addis is so paramount right now as the case is increasing

Thank you for your nice presentation.There are scientific reports suggesting a direct correlation between temperature and special spread of COVID 19 around the globe.

01:41:11
there is some early report from China that in pregnant mother with Covid and + IgM in the newborn. this raised questions of vertical transmission. Dr Gebeyehu May comment on that. Yoseph Birku, MD

Thanks Excellency the Ambassador. I know excellency while he was practically, inclusively, spiritually, collaboratively leading Investment commission. Pls share HE's email as I have one big contact with intention to help Ethiopia in donating prevention equipment..etc..to Ethiopia through formal mechanisms. I will quickly link the President of the NGO/company in USA with the Ambassador. my email is multidisciplinary3@gmail.com(Philipos)
Natnael Moges
01:45:08
Is there any strategies planned to be implemented to decrease corona infection to wards newborns in Ethiopia ?
Mirgissa Kaba
01:46:39
Excellent presentation Dr. Gebeyehu for an excellent presentation with experiences. Now the question is how much of what worked elsewhere could be implemented in Ethiopia. I personally am worried on the implication of what has been put in place etc. school closure etc.
Mahlet Berhanu
01:51:42
Thank you for the presentations. How did u proceed with the regular work in the states? What is happening down here is patients present to the hospital for other complaints and later on end up being positive for covid. Lots of physicians in the front line are being quarantined for having a close contact with the patients as they evaluate and follow the patients without PPEs. So how do you advise to carry out the regular non-covid clinical activities with regard to using some PPE?
Ashenafi Waktola
01:53:53
Great Presentation. Increased home clusters area associated with overcrowding (poverty). Lock downs are very challenging in our setting. Again, when the vast majority of people live day today, drastic measures have to be supported by generous actions of society, which are happening , the question is are they enough? A. Waktola
aisehak
01:55:50
How effective was the telemedicine approach used at Tikur Anbessa Hospital?
Mirgissa Kaba
01:56:21
One major challenge with prevention not necessarily in Ethiopia but also across the globe has to do with slow response to NPI. This is also the case from the time of Spanish flu where Science magazine argued three mainfactors to challenge of prevention intervention: (i) people do not appreciate the risks they run, (ii) it goes against human nature for people toshut themselves up in rigid isolation as a means of protecting others, and (iii) people often unconsciously act as a continuing danger tothemselves and others.

still significant shortage of PPE in healthy institutions.

I felt, sociologists, social workers and psychologists could play great role in psychosocial support and physical distancing. But we are relying primarily on health professionals. I felt, we are missing such good opportunity to support health care providers in the struggle against COVID 19. What is the experience of USA?
Dr. Solomon Afework
01:58:42
መልካምበቅርብ ያለው ሁኔታ እንደሚያመለክተው ለ front line staff በቂ መከላከያ ያለመኖር ትልቅ ችግር መሆኑ ነው። ከ 30 በላይ ባለሙያዎች ጥቁር አንበሳ ሆስፒታል መጋለጣቸውና መገለላቸው በምሳሌነት ይጠቀሳል። ብዙ ባለሙያዎች በተገለሉ ቁጥር ችግሩን ያባብሰዋል። ምን እየታሰበ ነው?
Abebe Kebede

Is thermal screening of people coming in from outside Ethiopia adequate to admit them into the country
Balcha
02:00:30
Are any specific exposure criteria utilised across Ethiopia uniformly , and for example in Tikur Anbessa Hospital, to decide on the quarantining of exposed health workers? Balcha G Masresha MD (WHO)
Abebe Kebede
02:00:32
From my reading these instruments may false positive

I observe masks being sewed from any type of cloth. Is it not preferable to select some better quality clothes?
Abebe Kebede
02:05:26
The masks can be made from any material. if it is double layered, and sandwitch cotton in between.
Thomas Shimelis
02:05:30
cotton fabric clothes has the better protection.

question to Dr wondwossen : is there any participation in any clinical trials that are going on for example with WHO
Dessalegn Mekuriaw
02:09:08
Many thanks for your professional comments. But I think goverment should push to avail such masks and try to reduce low quality ones in the market.
ezedin mustefa
02:10:45
out of desperation there are many health professionals using "piece of cloth" as face mask.
Almaz Yimer
02:11:36
The priority given in action to the Health Workers, we should not focus on Salary, rather the immediate preparedness action Better to focus on providing them we life saving practicality which is PPE. But on the presentation the priority is on Salary, would it be life saving?
Dessalegn Mekuriaw
02:12:52
Many people are also using any types of closes, even seweid by needle, out of frustration. Some strong direction should be given for those who make masks and the users as well.

(1) Can any body especially in ETH explain how to avoid beureacratic constraints for suspected case isolation, testing and quarantine??? (2) its good that everything prepared urgently and became ready. But have we imagined how feasible its to have corona center with in such big hospitals surving for millions??? my fear is the hospitals may become merely corona centers.

were the preemptive measures takens to shut down hospitals for elective cases a proper one, when there was only few cases detected? and what will be the feature with the worst cases scenario happening where our health care is over stretched, are all hospitals gonna be corona centers?
Ahmed Abdulahi
02:26:17
from the public health perspectives and looking back to the history of previous global pandemics is there any way estimate how longer could this pandemic last???

I am sorry Dr Ashenafi but Gonder University has to serve as the main quarantine center using its dormitory. It is wrong to have the quaentine center in Metema …..since the facility is not convenient
M Yassin
02:28:33
My question is to Dr Wondwossen and Dr Ashenafi. How are you ensuring provision of other essential services - especially treatment of other killer diseases, during this unprecedented time. Dr Mohammed Yassin (Global Fund)
ezedin mustefa
02:29:25
how are the health professionals quarantined being taken are off, what things are being provided for them and where they are being kept?..it worries us that what awaits us at the other side if we get caught with covid?
