Mum wants to visit Somalia soon, so I looked at travel advice.....

HIBAQ123

That's all!
One thing stood out to me :childplease:


Health
  • COVID-19 is present in Somalia.
  • Malaria occurs across the country. Consider taking anti-malaria medication. Other insect-borne diseases include dengue, yellow fever, filariasis and leishmaniasis. Ensure your accommodation is insect-proof. Use insect repellent. Get vaccinated against yellow fever before you travel.
  • Somalia continues to have cases of polio. Ensure your vaccinations are up to date before you travel. Carry proof of vaccination.
  • Somalia has a high rate of HIV/AIDS. Take precautions if you're taking part in high-risk activities. If you're a victim of violent crime, including rape, get medical help as soon as possible.
  • Foodborne, waterborne and other infectious diseases include cholera, hepatitis and meningococcal disease. Drink only boiled or bottled water. Avoid raw or undercooked food.
  • Medical facilities in Somalia are extremely limited. If you're ill or injured, you'll need medical evacuation out of the country. This is expensive and difficult to organise.
Since when?

They are getting us confused with ETHIOPIA
 
Either way, the odds of getting HIV are low.

Key points
  • What are the chances of getting HIV? This page gives the HIV transmission rates associated with vaginal, anal and oral sex, as well as pregnancy and sharing needles.
  • An undetectable viral load lowers the risk of transmission during sex to zero, whereas a high viral load makes it more likely.

That's a blatant lie and rather sickening. HIV/AIDs is exceedingly low in Muslim countries. Where is the source? And if so is there contact information to file a complaint. You've got to Karen up when dealing with flagrant misinformation.

There are more than 90 countries on level 4 (do not travel ) mostly due to Covid.
Surprisingly Djibouti is Level 1

@HIBAQ123 I have always called SmartTraveller for their BS travel advice on Somalia.

I even highlighted the BS HIV/AIDS warning. It’s actually based in cansuurinimo.

@HIBAQ123 they are lying about covid-19, I might even make a thread on it. Somalia is covid free and has been covid free for months.

Literally no one wears masks or practices social distancing yet society hasn’t collapsed like they have been saying lol. In fact no one even knows anyone that died from it or even has it.

“Number of schools acting as cultural rehabilitation facilities are operating throughout Somalia with unknown licensing and oversight”. Niggas are talking about the dhaqan celis boarding schools, I knew one day they were going to figure out about them.

Maybe where your at but I know so many people who've died from it. Just last night a great aunt of mine passed way AUN. There's deaths weekly. They are perfectly fine then one day develop a cough, go to sleep and pass away in their sleep.

Saying there's no Covid in Somalia is dangerous because obviously that's not the case. When I first came here everybody was telling me that "covid is a western thing" "Somalia's hot weather will kill the virus" ...then people started dropping like flies.


We need to keep donating oxygen to hospitals to help not only the patients but the overwhelmed staff instead of denying the viruses existence.
 
@HIBAQ123

Mayve the HIV/Aids increased in Somalia due to the amisom presence in the south of the country.. Also Some diaspora men from surrounding countries such as Kenya and Ethiopia who sleep with local prostitutes in those countries contribute to spread onto their wives, girlfriends etc.. I can also imagine hygiene must be really bad in local restaurants since they are unregulated by the state.. So take your precautions if you go there.

you just answered your own question. “Great Aunt”, how old was she? My grandma died in her sleep in her mid-80s, so did my grandpa in his 90s.

I’d they died in 2020-2021 would you have also blamed it on covid? There’s something called dying of old age, everyone has to go at one point, just because they died in 2021 doesn’t make their death a covid death.

Find me a healthy person who died of covid that you know of, otherwise covid is gone. Why hasn’t society completely collapsed and millions of people aren’t dying in Somalia?

Let’s just forget about the covid deaths, how come every single person in Somalia doesn’t have covid-19 right now? just this friday the masjid was packed, wouldn’t everyone have contracted covid-19? Why does Somalia have one of the lowest covid cases in the world even though they’re just living life normally?

I mentioned her because she was the most recent victim that passed away not because she's the only one. I've had 4 family members pass away just this week so don't down play it. They all varied in ages and were all very healthy till they contacted the virus. Instead of putting your tinfoil hat on and saying it's all lies count yourself and your family lucky because not everyone in Somalia is lucky and you don't speak all Somali citizens or know their conditions.


They literally went to the hospital, got checked and tested positive then died days later. We're not making fake diagnosis here:umwhat:




It says 15k cases just today and over 800 deaths but I'm sure there are much more since they're not testing every region to have accurate stats.
