The Lagos State Government says it has commenced a clinical follow-up and rehabilitation for victims of the Ita-Faji building collapse in central Lagos.
Dr Titilayo Goncalves, the Permanent Secretary, State Ministry of Health, said the follow-up was to ensure that victims of the unfortunate incident recovered fully.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that a three-storey building with a penthouse collapsed on March 13 at Ita-Faji area of Lagos, leaving 20 people, majorly school children dead, and many others injured.
NAN also reports that one of the floors of the building housed a nursery and primary school.
Goncalves said: “What happened is quite unfortunate, and we do not pray for a recurrence.
“As such, the government is providing this clinical follow-up and rehabilitation session to ensure good health for victims of this incident and help them recuperate.
“The follow-up includes a mental health treatment for those who may have been traumatised by the incident.
“Mental health talk and support is being offered by our trained psychiatrists, grief counsellors and social workers.
“This is because some of them, after such a traumatic incident, require mental health support to help them overcome their grief,” she said.
Also, Dr Funmilayo Shokunbi, the Director, Medical Administration, Training and Programmes in the ministry, said foodstuffs, school kits and other items would be provided to the victims to aid their process of recovery.
Shokunbi said the items were donated by the state government, Oba of Lagos and other well-meaning individuals.
COVID-19 : Expert warns against overdose of vitamin C
Okoh told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Abuja that such overdose could cause undesirable effects.
Many people also take supplements to ensure that they get enough of it.
However, this has raised concerns over the likelihood of an accidental overdose.
The nutritionist said that it was wrong to take an overdose of vitamin C to prevent being affected by the virus.
According to him, Vitamin C is a type of antioxidant that helps protect the body from free radicals that damage and destroy healthy cells.
“In this respect, getting enough of the nutrient is just one way you can support your body’s natural defenses against illness.
“This is how it gained its reputation as a virus-fighting vitamin.
“It also helps increase iron absorption, which is essential for growth and overall body functions. Not having enough vitamin C can lead to a potentially deadly condition known as scurvy.
“Oranges and orange juices are perhaps the best-known sources of vitamin C, but other items in the produce aisle are bell peppers, broccoli, cantaloupe, grapefruit, kiwi
potatoes, strawberries and tomatoes.’
The patients may probably not need vitamin C supplement if they eat a lot of fruits and vegetables.
“In fact, just one serving of any of the above foods could get you to your daily quota,” he said.
Okoh said that the average adult woman required 70mg of vitamin C per day, while the average man required 90mg.
He recommended that the amounts were higher for pregnant and nursing women.
According to him, it’s important to discuss your individual nutritional needs with your doctor.
“The maximum recommended amount or upper limit is 2,000mg per day for all adults.
“Taking more than the upper limit for vitamin C is not life-threatening, but you may experience side effects like: abdominal pain, cramps, diarrhea, headaches, nausea and possible vomiting, and also sleeping problems.
“People with hemochromatosis are in danger of a vitamin C overdose.
“This condition causes your body to store excessive amounts of iron, which is exacerbated by taking too much vitamin C. This condition can lead to body tissue damage,” he said.
Okoh stated that Vitamin C supplements may also interact with certain medications, especially medications for heart disease and cancer.
“Be sure to check with your doctor before taking a supplement,” he advised.
He said an overdose of vitamin C may also result in undesirable health conditions such as gall bladder stone, kidney stones and pelvic ulcer.
”You know vitamin C is good for the body but its important people should take it moderately, at least only once in a day.
“But unfortunately some of our patients take double or triple dose in a day and one of the side effects of this drug is that it causes peptic ulcer, which will create other problems for them.
“About 10 of our patients were discovered to have taken the overdose of these drugs.
He advised Nigerians to desist from self-medication, adding that drugs should be taken based on doctor’s prescription.
Mongolia’s capital holds annual book festival to promote reading amid pandemic
The three-day festival starting on Friday is held both online and offline for the first time, attracting around 500 authors, publishing houses, organizations as well as thousands of readers.
Co-organized by the city’s cultural department and non-governmental organization Nomiin Soyolt Yertunts (World of Book Culture) under the auspices of the country’s education ministry, the festival includes a wide range of activities such as meetings between authors and book lovers, book exhibitions and the launch of new books.
All the cases are imported ones, mostly from Russia, with no local transmissions or deaths reported so far.
Britain, EU close new round of trade talks, little progress made
Britain and the European Union (EU) closed their fourth round of trade talks on Friday with little progress made, their chief negotiators said.
“Progress remains limited but our talks have been positive in tone. Negotiations will continue and we remain committed to a successful outcome,” Britain’s chief Brexit negotiator David Frost said in London after the talks via video links.
“We are close to reaching the limits of what we can achieve through the format of remote formal rounds. If we are to make progress, it is clear that we must intensify and accelerate our work,” he said.
“We need to conclude this negotiation in good time to enable people and businesses to have certainty about the trading terms that will follow the end of the transition period at the end of this year, and, if necessary, to allow ratification of any agreements reached,” he added.
“Any such deal must of course accommodate the reality of the UK’s well-established position on the so-called ‘level playing field’, on fisheries, and the other difficult issues,” he added.
Also on Friday, Michel Barnier, the EU‘s chief negotiator on Britain’s exit from the EU, said in Brussels that there have been no significant areas of progress after the end of the fourth round of talks with Britain on their post-Brexit relations.
The EU has always been open to the possibility of an extension to the transition period, he said.
After this final scheduled round of talks now between the two sides, the focus will switch to a crucial meeting reportedly to take place later this month between British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen.
Johnson has insisted he will not extend the transition period beyond Dec. 31, with Britain and the EU facing the prospect of conducting trade under World Trade Organization rules if there is no agreement.
Britain has insisted that it wants a Canada-style relationship based on a comprehensive free trade agreement, supplemented by separate international agreements.

Dr Umar Gwandu, Special Assistant on Media to the Minister disclosed this in a statement on Friday in Abuja.
According to him, Malami said this after attending the inaugural meeting of the Project Ecosystem Steering Committee (PESC) of the Nigeria Digital Identity Development Project System chaired by Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha.
Malami said the Committee has the responsibility of reviewing the legal and regulatory framework for digital identity development and implementation of the Strategic Roadmap.
“It will also utilise foundational identity to access services, determining the location of the Ecosystem Strategic Unit as well as receive reports on the implementation through the Director General of the National Identity Management Commission, and provide necessary guidance and approval thereof’’.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that members of the Committee include the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha as the chairman and the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami.
Others are Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning; Hajiya Zainab Ahmed Shamsuna; Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu; Minister of Interior, Ra’uf Aregbesola; Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire and Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Dr. Isah Ali Ibrahim Pantami.

Malami said the Committee was established to provide policy, institutional and operational guidance in the process of implementing the Federal Executive Council-approved Strategic Roadmap for accelerating digital identity development for Nigeria.
Mr Boss Mustapha in his address charged Members of the committee on the need to considerably reduce the number of challenges faced in identifying and locating poor and vulnerable Nigerians in the distribution of palliatives to cushion the effect of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
“This Committee is to ensure that the Federal Government leverages the existing ecosystem of Government Agencies, States and trusted private sector partners to carry out nationwide enrolment through a viable partnership strategy with an effective public awareness campaign,” he said.

Hundreds join “Black Lives Matter” march in Lithuanian capital
Hundreds of people on Friday joined a march in Vilnius, capital of Lithuania, to show their solidarity with George Floyd, an unarmed black man suffocated to death by a white police officer in the mid-western United States state of Minnesota last week.
Marching from the Cathedral square to the American embassy, the crowd held placards saying “I can’t breathe,” which were Floyd’s last words, “Black Lives Matter,” “Stop Racism,” and “End Police Brutality,” among others, chanting “no justice — no peace” and other slogans against the police violence.
The protesters, many of whom are students, said they wanted to support the “Black Lives Matter” movement and the protesters in the United States.
“We want to show solidarity and compassion to not only George Floyd’s family and the people fighting for justice in the streets of America, but also to the ones who are affected by police brutality against people of color,” wrote the organizers of the rally on the Facebook.
A police van was seen leading the march to the American embassy.
Lafia Specialist Hospital to begin postgraduate training of pharmacists – CMD
Dr Hassan Ikrama, Chief Medical Director (CMD), Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital (DASH), Lafia, says the management of the hospital is making efforts to begin postgraduate training of pharmacists.
He made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lafia on Friday.
Ikrama said the essence of the training was to boost the manpower befitting of a specialist hospital.
“We were given accreditation for residency on Obstetrics and Gynaecology recently by the West African College of Surgeons to train doctors to be consultants.
“Currently, we are doing undergraduate training of pharmacists and nurses and we are working seriously to begin postgraduate training for them to assist them to attain the height of their career,” he said.
Ikrama lauded Gov. Abdullahi Sule for giving them the approval to employ additional staff.
“Following the governor’s approval, we have employed more than 100 nurses, 25 doctors as well as others; in addition to the ones we have to bring the health workers to patients’ ratio,” he said.
He also commended the governor for completing and equipping projects started by the former governor and putting the projects to use.
Ikrama said the hospital had, within the last one year, increased the number of theatres from two to four; increased clinics from one to eight and had provided more scanning machines from one to eight.
“Other initiatives to reposition the hospital include the provision of 200 additional beds, renovation of wards, toilets, among others,” he said.
According to him, the hospital has 40 permanent consultants in addition to other visiting consultants in different fields.
“There are 125 doctors apart from nurses, pharmacists and laboratory technicians, among others.
“We have also acquired a brand new digital X-ray machine and can now undertake services for which we used to refer patients to Keffi or Jos,” he said.
Ikrama, therefore, assured members of the public that the management of the hospital would do everything possible to improve on service delivery. .
Nigerian troops intensify fight against Boko Haram militants
The Nigerian troops had achieved encouraging results in recent operations against extremist group Boko Haram and other gunmen groups across the restive northern region, a military spokesperson said.
John Enenche, Nigeria‘s defense spokesperson, said in a statement reaching Xinhua in Lagos on Friday that dozens of militants had been killed while many others surrendered in operations by the troops between Monday and Wednesday.
One soldier was killed and another wounded in one operation, Enenche added.
He said in continuation of the clearance operations across the northeast, troops of Army Super Camp 6 on Wednesday in conjunction with Borno state Civilian Joint Task Force, conducted a deliberate ambush operation against Boko Haram militants at Lawanti River line in Konduga of Borno state, killing six of them while others escaped with gunshot wounds.
Relatedly, the military spokesperson said the troops had on Tuesday an encounter with some Boko Haram militants at Daban Magaji in Borno, killing 9 of them and destroying one Boko Haram gun truck as well as capturing one anti-aircraft gun, two rifles and a large cache of anti-aircraft ammunition.
He said troops of 144 Battalion deployed in Madagali of Adamawa state on Monday briskly cleared Boko Haram camps at several villages in the area. During the encounter at Gajinji village, troops killed one militant and arrested 2 adult females identified to be the local Boko Haram commander’s wives.
Furthermore, resulting from sustained artillery bombardments and ground assaults against Boko Haram hideouts in the northeast, more militants are surrendering to the troops in recent days, according to Enenche.
Speaking on the fight against bandits in the northwest, Enenche said troops of Operation Whirl Punch acting on credible information raided on Wednesday a bandits’ camp in Chikun local government area of Kaduna state, killing two of them while others escaped with gunshot wounds.
He said the troops will continue to be steadfast and focused as they sustain the onslaught against Boko Haram and other militant groups.
