Barefoot Scientist warns South Africa the new South African Strain is killing:

The New South African Strain is causing deaths at a rate, 3,53 times higher than the China Strain. 

Barefoot Scientist warns  South Africa Weekly Deaths
Barefoot Scientist warns South Africa Weekly Deaths

I have divided the period of China Strain, April 01. to Nov 01, and the South African Strain, from Nov 01, running through to March 28.

According to my non-academic science and statistical ability, I see the following;

China Strain;  31 weeks = 1822,118 million human weeks, 19 411 deaths equal 10,653 deaths per million human weeks:

South African Strain;  8 weeks = 470,224 million human weeks, 17 694 deaths equal 37,692 deaths per million human weeks:

Lockdown will not stop this virus spread, as the medical facilities are already stressed, with that the frontline medical care under stress, undertakers and families under stress, not an environment for healing;

South African Strain;  next 13  weeks  ending Mach 28, 2021, = 764,114 million human weeks, 22 100 deaths equal 28,992  deaths per million human weeks:

Barefoot Scientist warns South Africa that we must prepare for our deaths toll by March 28, 2021, to reach 59 105, and depending on mismanagement, and chaos at the medical facilities, i would be far higher.

The world example, shows that the Covid Vaccine, does not change the  direction of the weekly deaths for a number of weeks, thus, we will need to live through the present Summer South African strain, that I believe will taper by end March, with either the China Strain returning, or a Southern Africa Two Strain taking is place.

Dear Professor Karrim, Dr. Zwelini Mkhize, and President Ramaphosa, medical science is unable to foresee the problems that the citizens are going to face in the next twelve weeks, and you need to allow us the freedom that our Constitutions Human Rights allow us, in particular, the freedom to choose our medical treatment, and right that existed for tens of thousands of years.

Let us decide on how we wish to live, the last days, that many of us will have.

This post, is not aimed a creating fear, the world and our medical scientists are achieving that.

I support the Madagascar Herb, Umhlonyane, and should our Traditional Healers, be given permission and your guidance on the use of Umhlonyane, will remove 50% of the load on the hospitals, allowing other diseases to be treated in the hospital.

Sirs,  for those of us who wish to use Ivermectin, your permission and guidance on the use of Ivermectin through a medical practitioner, will further remove another 25% of the load on the hospitals.

My wife and I are in the 70s,  it is not only the frightening statistics, that we see, but since December, the funerals are back on every street, we are dying, please allow us these additional options to save our, and our families lives.

You may request those of us to sign a waiver if we use these options.

Campus Rudolf Virchow Africa


Rudolf Virchow –

his ideology is the core discipline of this Campus and our Disciples:


Follow the Campus mantra, and qualify as a healer:

“Heal through the alleviation of poverty, not vaccines.”       

Rudolf Virchow –

Virchow was an impassioned advocate for social and political reform, His ideology involved social inequality as the cause of diseases that requires political actions, stating:

Medicine is a social science, and politics is nothing else but medicine on a large scale.

Medicine, as a social science, as the science of human beings, has the obligation to point out problems and to attempt their theoretical solution: the politician, the practical anthropologist, must find the means for their actual solution…

Science for its own sake, usually means nothing more than science for the sake of the people who happen to be pursuing it.

Knowledge which is unable to support action is not genuine; and how unsure is activity without understanding.

If medicine is to fulfil her great task, then she must enter the political and social life…

The physicians are the natural attorneys of the poor, and the social problems should largely be solved by them.

Intent to exterminate Southern Africans?

Intent to exterminate Southern Africans, a conclusion that I made months ago, the politically correct norms, discourage me from publishing what I am thinking.

I have drafted the basis of my conclusions, since December 16, 2020, my book will never reach finality, before another 20 000 people die, so I need to fire another shot, in the Ivermectin debate.

When I started the research on December 16, 2020, I had asked the question;

“Why does South Africa, have the highest prevalence of HIV/AIDS in Africa, in the World?”

“Why does South Africa have 7 970 000 people living with HIV, and Madagascar, the Country with the magic herb, only 69 000?”

Once  upon a time, a friend of mine who was a South African Security Services agent, told me that he was based in Mozambique, from late 1980s, and he was part of a group, that infected the black  population, from Mozambique through the Johannesburg area, with HIV.

I did not want to throw my friend in the pile, unless I received confirmation from another source, this I get from friend Gordon, a struggle military veteran, he WhatsApps’ a video and a comment on the SAMIR inoculation.

I have no doubt that the security forces spread HIV from Mozambique, through South Africa to Angola, and my draft document shows that the WHO and all medical scientists, have not scientifically established the origins of HIC-1 C subgroup, the subgroup that resides in Southern Africa, clearly shown in the only dark high density area in the world:

HIV-1 C subgroup, Southern Africa
HIV-1 C subgroup, Southern Africa

My research into Ivermectin first follows the question, “Does Ivermectin benefit HIV infected patients?”

This takes me to the WHO prescribes Ivermectin treatment for the Africa Onchocerciasis Control Programme  AOCP


Ivermectin is taken orally as tablets. A single dose of 150 to 200 µg/kg body weight needs to be taken annually to be effective. The dosage depends on a person’s body mass, which can be simply calculated according to height.

Onchocerciasis occurs mainly in tropical areas. More than 99% of infected people live in 31 countries in sub-Saharan Africa: Angola, Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Republic of Congo, Côte d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Gabon, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, Sudan, Togo, Uganda, United Republic of Tanzania.

Onchocerciasis is also transmitted in Brazil, Venezuela (Bolivarian Republic of) and Yemen.

These AfricaCountries, who receive an annual dose of Ivermectin, have very few Coronavirus Deaths?

In  the next able the centre column, Deaths / 100 000, South Africa has achieved a death rate of 58,413 per 100 000,

I question Equatorial Guinea’s management styles, but from Sudan down the list, their rates are all below 3,348 per 100 000.

These countries, have a total population of 1,08 billion, and the death rate of 1,051 per 100 000.


South Africa Coronavirus Deaths / 100 000 compared to AOCP countries
South Africa Coronavirus Deaths / 100 000 compared to AOCP countries

The BAREFOOT Scientist, suggests that a population group of 1,08 billion, who only have a 1,51  Covid-19 deaths per 100 000, is a sufficient sample, to prove that Ivermectin contributes to preventing Coronavirus Deaths, and the WHO and South African medical scientists, have no option, than to allow Ivermectin as a Coronavirus treatment in Southern Africa.

Any failure to do so, places the system at risk.


If the system fears claims from patients who elect Ivermectin treatment,  simple waiver avoid responsibility.

As part of my research into whether Ivermectin would help in the HIV infection rates, I believe that it would. We scrutinize Scrutinize the South African HIV prevalence rate of 13,6% of the population.

In the AOCP Countries, Mozambique, where SAIMR was based, have a 7,04% of the population living with HIV/AIDS, an indication that South Africa’s   HIV/AIDS prevalence could be a low as 7.04% if we had access to Ivermectin, reducing the HIV/AIDS population from 7 970 000 to as low as 4 350 000.

This will halve the State’s cost of HIV/AIDS treatment  by nearly 50%, and reduce the annual deaths from 200 000 to 100 000.

How can the WHO and South African medical science prevent the use of Ivermectin in South Africa?

These countries, have a total population of 1,08 billion, and the HIV prevalence  rate of 1,28% of the population.


Ivermectin impact on HIV prevalence
Ivermectin impact on HIV prevalence


I have observed many social media posts where a young black person, will claim that the  New World Conspiracy Theory, is to reduce the black population, population reduction can’t take place, without culling, or extermination, and if I was a black, I would believe that the Intent to exterminate Southern Africans was aimed at me?

President Ramaphosa, Professor Karrim, there is no scientific reason available to why Ivermectin is no safe to the human, there is no WHO medical treatment for Covid-19, if you have any hidden scientific research that I have missed that replaces the no , you, the elected and paid for by the people, owe i to us.

May I leave the target Zone in your minds for now:

Ivermectin tested in 54 Countries why not South Africa

Ivermectin tested in 54 Countries why not South Africa?

I am presently researching why South Africa has population of 7,97 million living with HIV/AIDS, as I follow the Ivermectin being banned in South Africa, my ‘warped’ mind, attaches the possibility that it is banned, as it may reduce the HIV pandemic, so I Google search, and find the following research document, relevant, but it allows me to ask the question why South Africa are not testing Ivermectin?

Please click on the following ‘cells’ link.

Coronavirus wonder drug Ivermectin banned

Coronavirus wonder drug Ivermectin banned in South Africa, the South Africans are dying, and they have no choice to whether they should use the tested Ivermectin or die, waiting for the medical science vaccine.



Medical Science has not found a treatment that can cure Coronavirus, yet, in the interest of an unproven vaccine in Africa, South Africa, bans the Coronavirus wonder drug Ivermectin.

I am of the opinion, that I have the human right to be treated with Ivermectin, and should this not happen when I need it, I will have been murdered.

According to the WHO, Ivermectin is safe to use, and is prescribed for Onchocerciasis, in Africa, for use for both local and international volunteers.

African Programme for Onchocerciasis Control (APOC)

I quote from the article:

The treatment for onchocerciasis is ivermectin (brand name Mectizan®). Unlike previous treatments, which had serious – sometimes fatal – side effects, ivermectin is safe and can be used on a wide scale.

It is also a very effective treatment, and has single-handedly transformed the lives of millions of people suffering from onchocerciasis since its introduction in 1987.

In APOC countries, it is estimated that 65% of the total population living in an endemic area need to take ivermectin annually to eliminate onchocerciasis as a public health problem.


In 1987, the manufacturer of ivermectin – Merck & Co., Inc. – declared that it would donate ivermectin free of charge for as long as is needed. This unprecedented donation is administered through the Mectizan Donation Program, which works with ministries of health and other partners to distribute the drug.

Onchocerciasis is evil, if we are no allowed Ivermectin for Coronavirus, then Coronavirus is not as evil;  

I quote from the article:


WHO recommends treating onchocerciasis with ivermectin at least once yearly for between 10 to 15 years. Where O. volvulus co-exists with Loa loa, treatment strategies have to be adjusted. Loa loa is a parasitic filarial worm that is endemic in Cameroon, the Central African Republic, Congo, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Nigeria and South Sudan. Treatment of individuals with high levels of L. loa in the blood can sometimes result in severe adverse events. In affected countries, it is recommended to follow the Mectizan Expert Committee (MEC)/APOC recommendations for the management of severe adverse events.

This post is a public record, that I will request Ivermectin treatment from the Hospital that I am sent to, or that I approach, and should I not receive the treatment with Ivermectin, my legal team are waiting in the wings to claim restitution.

Madagascar Covid Herb (2)

Artemisia  Herb please read Madagascar Herb Post  

This morning’s post, receives no comment from friends or enemy;

I can understand this, why should I expect any likes, dislikes, or shares, when this YouTube video is an October 2020 video.

Maybe, it is so hard to accept that South Africa has a world first in medical discoveries, that all my friends or enemies, consider this to be fake news.

My question is why, if this is a South African discovery, ten weeks back, we have not accepted that the impact of Covid, is no worse than pneumonia, and over hundreds of years, whether you are a Boer, or an African, steaming yourself would break down the mucus build up.

If you are reading this post, while you are waiting for your Covid test results, steam your self with Artesia, or another infused herb, before you venture to the hospital.

I give up;






Herd Immunity

Herd Immunity is very simply, when 1 person passes a virus on to less than 1 person, when R is less than 1.

Some months back I made a statement that South Africa had reached Herd Immunity, back on July 24, 2020.

I stand by my analysis, with regard to the Coronavirus first wave, and Medical Science has as yet, not convinced me, that the same Covid virus that arrived in March 2020, is part of the Second Strain, which appears to transmit quicker, and at this stage, the death rate has no confirmed increase or decrease.    

My philosophy is that the present virus, moves like a flu strain, two to three strains per annum, vaccines needing to change every two years, no one vaccine working for all strains.

South Africa Flu movement
South Africa Flu movement


Notice how the cases come and go, without lockdown and sanitizing. Notice how they overlap:


Europe announces that they have a second wave during November, then in December, they find a few cases of a new strain, then a South African strain.

The Second Wave, is in fact they start of the New Strain, and as we approach January, the New Strain is now being credited for arriving start January.

Strange how medical science has not yet identified is origins.

Medical Science is still driving the vaccine for Strain One, have they tested it for Strain Two?

Let us look at the South African scenario:

Covid Cases in South Africa
Covid Cases in South Africa

Note; during the first wave, the infections are lower, and my July 24 identification as having reached herd immunity is clearly visible, the R factor remains below 1, till mid November, when Strain Two arrives:

We are doing more testing know, so the graph shows higher infection rate during Strain Two.

South Africa Covid Death Graph
South Africa Covid Death Graph

Let us look at the United Kingdom, during the First Wave very few cases indicate little testing, yet look at the deaths that take place off the ‘few cases’.

During the Second Strain, a lot of testing, many cases, but deaths not so severe.   

Covid Cases in the UK

Let us look at Sweden who does not lock down, during the First Strain, they only test those who report symptoms, and look at the death rate, then more cases occur during the Strain Two, and deaths are not at same rate;

If Sweden Deaths during the Strain Two period, it will confirm my philosophy that the virus, like the flu, will arrive and leave us is different phases.

Madagascar Covid Herb for healing

Madagascar Covid Herb for healing, is an African traditional medicine used for respiratory illnesses and malaria.


Campus Rudolf Virchow Africa will heal poverty, if we unite as healers.

TB, Typhoid, and other poverty illnesses, that medical science have failed to  heal,  opens the doors, to us, to follow Madagascar and treat Coronavirus.

In South Africa, the Western Medical Science, has lost 2,6 of every 100 patients they diagnosed.

Had the traditional Healers been treating, just 25% of the infected, some 250 000 patients, @ R 300 per patient, some  R 75 million would have been generated in our mission to heal poverty.

If  you have not read the African Potato blog, questioning the South African management of HIV infections, some 7,9 million people, live with HIV/AIDS, as I finalize this post, I discover that Madagascar only has an estimated 39 000 citizens living with HIV/AIDS, I discover a different attitude exists in our Countries, hidden is an attitude that I am afraid to talk about, it will take me months of bouncing ideas off others, before I will be able to express my feelings.

What it does tell me, is that we could have saved tens of thousands of people, dying early, from HIV/AIDS  related illnesses.     

Umhlonyane, the Artemesia Africa herb, has been used throughout Africa as a treatment for all chest/respiratory illnesses, plus malaria, for many years.

artemisia herb
artemisia herb

I never suffer from flu or other respiratory illnesses, but when our Government started spending millions on testing the herb, for the first time, I started to test the efficacy and side-effects.

From lockdown day one, I have shopped via walking, and two hills in particular were my test for whether the virus had attached to me, my breathing level was raised, but in my opinion, not to the Coronavirus symptom.

When I started to test Umhlonyane, I was amazed at the reduction of my breathing level on these two same hills, and immediately commenced regular treatment, to test against side-effects. It has now been three months, and my health is still good, no side-effects. Maybe it is the addition of dagga in the tea, that is the secret.

I have an invitation to all my friends in Soweto and Alex, should you feel the symptoms of Coronavirus, phone me, I will arrive to treat you, I will not be wearing a mask, no gloves, no protective clothes.

If you have the virus, and it transfers to me, I will treat myself, and celebrate immunity.

To the Traditional / Natural healers out-there, our President does not have faith in the African Culture, our President, and his Scientific Team, do not accept the word of the African, when we tell him that Madagascar has only had 261 Covid deaths in total, they would claim that their Madagascar President is not truthful.

Madagascar Covid Herb results in the Madagascar community:

On December 27, 2020, South Africa’s death rate is 45,48 per 100000 population, Madagascar’s death rate is 0,94 per 100000 population, 48,38 times higher than Madagascar.

This blog is not aimed at debating whether the Madagascar people is lying, or not. Pakistan removed lockdown in May 2020, and the death rate is only slightly higher than Madagascar.

Limpopo, very much in that same category, are the people of Limpopo lying?

Have a look at the following graph, and you decide whether our President and all his wise men, are wise, or Capitalists, who never give the African credit?

The Bottom Line Madagascar
The Bottom Line Madagascar

No  matter where you are in the world, if you are in the “poor/poverty” group,  the Capitalist, Free Market system, has caused your status to decline during the Coronavirus management, added to your long term suffering, and increased the size of the poverty group.

The New Industrial Revolution, that President Ramaphosa has spent millions of Rands on, has arrived, remember the New Industrial Revolution message, our President was motivated to bring to us;

“The New Industrial Revolution will be exciting, it will bring us new technology, will speed everything up, new computer systems, new robots to do our work, a new world. Many of you will loose your jobs, but do not worry, your Government has budgeted to spend millions on re-skilling you, teaching you how to survive in the New World. Do not worry, if you do not find a job, the wealthy people will be making a lo more profit. They will pay more taxes, and your Government will be able to pay you an additional SASSA grant of R 350.”        

The Coronavirus ‘lockdown” allows the Governments throughout the world, to allow the Free Market sector the Economy to restructure, the non-essential, the retail, the hospitality,   sectors that are locked down, removes those intended to be removed, by the New Industrial Revolution, while the unemployed as socially distanced, unable to interact, unable to resist the human rights abuses, that take place through the process of removing your employment opportunity?           

I have not yet touched on the Informal Economy, the economy, that has fed and educated the majority of our black population for a hundred years. The fruit and vegetable hawker, the food hawker, the clothing hawker, the mobile phone accessories hawkers, the taxi industry,  and the shebeen industry. By closing sections of the formal economy, a Government closes the Informal Economy, reliant on the movement of the employed.

Unlike South Africa, where we wish to be seen as a ‘developed’ country, the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, removed lockdown on May 08, 2020.  According to a  published news report that I quote from, Imran Khan’s announcement,

“Why are we going ahead to ease the lockdown? Because people in our country, particularly daily wagers, small shopkeepers, taxi drivers, laborers, white-collar families are all facing an extremely difficult situation to feed their families,” Khan said.

Disciple Cedric’s update on December 27, 2020, South Africa’s death rate per 100000 population is  45,48 ten times greater than Pakistan @ 4,66 per 100000. (See graph supra)

President Thabo Mbeki African Potato Garlic & Beetroot

President Thabo Mbeki African Potato  Garlic & Beetroot brought him ridicule from the medical science world.

President Thabo Mbeki was accused of having caused 300 000 deaths, and in 2002  the South African  Parliament defected the  African Potato Garlic & Beetroot philosophy and committed to implementing ARVs.

Why is Disciple Cedric brave enough to even remind the world of President Thabo Mbeki’s alleged failure, and if you are sill reading his post, you will discover that my personal opinion, is one of support for the Thabo Mbeki philosophy.

Those who condemned and ridiculed the African Potato, Garlic and Beetroot philosophy, believed the Africa Potato to be the funny part, but what the scientific world, refused to hear, is that Mbeki was linking an HIV infected person, to living a ‘healthy life’, with improved living conditions,  accommodation that was fit for a human, water and toilet facilities, conditions that removed those infected with HIV, from living in the typical poverty situation.

Thabo Mbeki philosophy was the Rudolf Virchow philosophy, “Heal hough alleviating poverty, not vaccines”, and today, we need to consider whether the introduction of ARVs, has achieved more than alleviating poverty.

The South African official population, is just over 58 million, of which, 7,4 million, nearly 13% of our population, lives with the HIV/AIDS infection, although 5,4 million ARV regimes has been implemented,  many have not continued,  and it is estimated that 50% of of the HIV infected, them, some 3,2 million, are not on the ARV treatment regime.

I respect the rights of those who do not wish to take ARV treatment, but it does put you at great risk of contracting TB, Flu/pneumonia, Covid, and becoming one of the death statistics.

The bad news is that in excess of 120 000 , of the HIV/AIDS population, have died on an annual basis since 2002, I do not venture to comment, on what % of the 120 000 , is of those not taking ARVs.

40 000 of the 120 000 that die from HIV/Aides related deaths, had TB.

If you are part of the 7,4 million, with as many as 300 thousand at risk of having TB, today I ask you to remember,  when President Thabo Mbeki was ridiculed when he promoted the philosophy, that the HIV infected population, required healthy more spacious, ventilated accommodation, and healthy food, including African Potato and Beetroot, in order to achieve this, President Thabo Mbeki, was moving in the direction of alleviating poverty.

Had this policy been accepted by the South African Parliament, the living conditions for the poverty groups in South Africa, would be in their twentieth year of improvement, and we would not have the conditions that can be found throughout our country?

South Africa Poverty Conditions

The Frightening Realty of the Option:

South Africa HIV/AIDS infected,  rise from 4.64 million in 2002,, to 7. 97million in 2019, during this period, 5.40 million ARV regimes have been introduced, and yet,

3,40 million have died during the period, 200 000 per year.

South Africa HIV/AIDS population
South Africa HIV/AIDS population

President Thabo Mbeki African Potato and Garlic & Beetroot philosophy, in my opinion, would have healed through alleviating poverty, providing suitable accommodation, healthy, ventilated, ensuring that the infected  received a diet that improved the immune system. 

In my opinion, there was no reason for African Traditional Healers, to be banned from treating patients with the HIV/AIDS infection, in the poverty community, the living conditions, allow Comorbidity to become common place, and ARV’s would not protect TB from attaching to the patients.

South Africa followed the WHO and world scientific recommendations, as Disciple of the Campus Rudolf Virchow Africa, I believe that medical science has failed by not following Thabo Mbeki’s philosophy, I believe that medical science has failed the poverty groups, during the Coronavirus pandemic, and I invite the academic to answer to why South Africa sill have 400 000 HIV infections per annum?  (7,97 ml, 4,64 ml, = 3,33 ml, plus 3,40 ml deaths), and why, by improving living conditions and diet, we would have more infections.     

South Africa’s 1 million Coronavirus Infections, and 29 000 deaths, should be seen in the context of the 3,2 million HIV infected who are not taking ARV, of them the poverty group, would be at risk, 300 000 TB cases, per annum.   

Dear Brothers and Sisters, if you are in this 7,4 million group, or have Comorbidity, or over 70 years old,  you must follow your desired self-protection regime, I am anti-lockdown, the failure of our Country to heal poverty,   should not include me and others, including your family, all loosing our income, and having our human rights abused, to save you, when our system, has no intention to alleviate poverty, rather, have no concern that everyone one of us has been moved deeper into poverty, and the State does not have money to alleviate poverty conditions.

Statistics over the next ten years, will prove our Government and their consultants wrong.

We call on our citizens to Unite, to heal through poverty alleviation, and not vaccines.

As we prepare for our next post, Madagascar Covid Herb requires no vaccine, unless you are obese and have Comorbidity.

Rich Man Poor Man, epidemics distributed socially

Rich Man Poor Man, how epidemics are distributed socially:

In the 19th Century Rudolf Virchow distinguished between “artificial” and “natural” epidemics. Typhus, scurvy, tuberculosis and mental illness, he considered “artificial”, that is, concentrated among the poor, clearly differentially distributed among social classes, while dysentery, malaria and pneumonia were “natural” epidemics, more evenly distributed among the various social classes.

Campus Rudolf Virchow Africa
Campus Rudolf Virchow Africa

In the 21st Century, malaria has been switched to poverty, and HIV/AIDS, although not restricted to the poverty group, is perceived to be a poverty illness, in my opinion, these diseases kill many in the poverty groups, because the ‘local’ traditional healers, are forbidden to heal these diseases in competition with economic interests, escalating poverty levels, while maintaining illness levels.

As we enter 2021, and I Google Typhoid as a poverty diseases, what are the symptoms of Typhoid?

Fever, Headache, Weakness and fatigue, Muscle Aches, Sweating, Dry cough, Loss of appetite, Stomach Pain.

Typhoid is endemic within South Africa, and sporadic cases are reported in all provinces every year. In addition to sporadic endemic disease, clusters and outbreaks may occur. There is ongoing risk of typhoid fever in any area where water quality and sanitation is not optimal.

The typhoid germ enters the body through the mouth, usually in contaminated food and water. Drinking water taken from contaminated wells was a common source of infection. The patient suffered headache and nose-bleeding, general body aches, a feeling of tiredness and persistent fever which may have lasted up to three weeks. He developed a rash, called ‘rose spot’ and relapsed into delirium and mental confusion. Bronchitis and pneumonia were secondary and frequently fatal effects.

The typhoid germ enters the body through the mouth, usually in contaminated food and water. Drinking water taken relapsed from contaminated wells was a common source of infection. The patient suffered headache and nose-bleeding, general body aches, a feeling of tiredness and persistent fever which may have lasted up to three weeks. He developed a rash, called ‘rose spot’ and into delirium and mental confusion. Bronchitis and pneumonia were secondary and frequently fatal effects.

The burden of diarrheal diseases is very high, accounting for 1.7 to 5 billion cases per year worldwide. Typhoid fever (TF) and cholera are potentially life-threatening infectious diseases, and are mainly transmitted through the consumption of food, drink or water that has been contaminated by the feces or urine of subjects excreting the pathogen.

Disciple Cedric, has interacted with hundreds of Township and Village residents, who display these symptoms, they will attend the local clinic, and be treated with a small envelope of pills.

This is where I add a video of the typical failed service delivery in South Africa, water born sewerage, spewing out of the manhole, flowing into a spring that feeds the Klipspruit, and soon it joins the Vaal River, entering the Johannesburg water supply system.

The Klipspruit flows through residential and agricultural areas, children swim in the Klipspruit, people use the water for washing, themselves, washing their bedding and their clothes.

The local farmer’s livestock drink from the Klipspruit, the local farmers use the Klipspruit to irrigate their crops.

How many of the South African poverty groups, who may be exposed to Salmonella typhi in South Africa, are correctly diagnosed and treated accordingly?

Rich Man Poor Man, who is suffering?

The primary diseases of poverty, like TB, malaria, and HIV/AIDS, and the often co-morbid and ever-present malnutrition, take their toll on helpless populations in developing countries.

Poverty is not just income deprivation, but capability deprivation and optimism deprivation as well.

The interplay of these diseases of poverty is substantial and can hardly be overlooked. We know how TB compounds AIDS. TB and HIV are synergistic infections: HIV infection increases the rate of activation of latent TB infection and speeds progression of TB. TB accelerates the progression of AIDS by increasing the rate of HIV replication.

We also know how malnutrition compounds TB. “TB is associated with poverty, overcrowding, alcoholism, stress, drug addiction and malnutrition… The disease spreads easily in overcrowded, badly ventilated places and among people who are undernourished.”

We also cannot forget how all three, TB, HIV/AIDS and malnutrition, are dynamically interlinked with each other and with their overlord, poverty itself.

The social dimension of poverty can hardly be discounted. “. no social phenomenon is as comprehensive in its assault on human rights as poverty.

Poverty erodes or nullifies economic and social rights such as the right to health, adequate housing, food and safe water, and the right to education.

Alcoholism, drug abuse, chronic mental disorders, sociopathy, beggary, violence in family and neighbor-hoods, physical abuse and neglect of the female (especially the female child), commercial sex, all these, while they may impact any strata of society, leave their greatest trail of devastation among the impoverished.

Poverty and Income/Capability/Optimism Deprivation

More importantly, the poor, assailed by life’s vicissitudes and society’s callousness, may learn to accept their fate and sink further into the morass of poverty, disease and deprivation.

A greatly reduced self-esteem, with a feeling of being trapped in a helpless situation, with no succour in sight, adds to the crippling effect of poverty-disease-deprivation on human existence.

Poverty is not just income deprivation but capability deprivation as well. Millions of people living in the third world are still “unfree,” “denied elementary freedom and, imprisoned in one way or another by economic poverty, social deprivation, political tyranny, or cultural authoritarianism”.

There is a distinction between lack of income and lack of capacity. Poor people acutely feel their powerlessness and insecurity, their vulnerability and lack of dignity. Rather than taking decisions for themselves, they are subject to the decisions of others in nearly all aspects of their lives.

Their lack of education or technical skills holds them back. Poor health may mean that employment is erratic and low-paid. Their very poverty excludes them from the means of escaping it. Their attempts even to supply basic needs meet persistent obstacles, economic or social, obstinate or imaginative, legal or customary. Violence is an ever-present threat, especially to women.

The poorest use what resources they have, and considerable resourcefulness, in their struggle to survive. For the poor, innovation means risk, and risk can be fatal. Helping them improve their capacities calls for imagination as well as compassion.

Equally important, along with income and capability deprivation, poverty also means optimism deprivation. Let us explain what we mean thereby. The will or motivation to fight poverty, the urge to escape its shackles, the hope that the fight will succeed one day-this optimism is lost due to subsistence living and the daily fight for survival.

There seems to be no cause for cheer, no redemption around the corner, no way out, howsoever much the person struggles. A trapped helpless feeling, which grows on the person, aided and abetted at every step by the life situation around-this is what mainly sustains the poverty-disease-deprivation spiral. It is this optimism deprivation that may be a salient feature of the depression that overwhelms such individuals, adds to resource deprivation and income deprivation and, finally, does the person in.


The duration of infection is a major determinant of the risk of severe complications, and a delay in administering appropriate antibiotic treatment may have serious consequences.

Isolation of S. typhi from blood is the most common method of diagnosis, though the bacterium can also be isolated from bone marrow, feces and duodenal fluid. Blood culture displays suboptimal sensitivity, generally being positive in only about 50% of cases.

It also has several limitations, including the volume of blood needed, the need for prompt transport to the laboratory, interference due to prior antibiotic use, limited laboratory expertise and equipment, and expense.

Disciple Cedric fires his first shot in the Poverty Revolution:

The voices of the poverty group, presently can’t be heard, the healer must be the attorney of the poverty group, if any of your community have Typhoid symptoms, you must request them to take a picture of any waste/sewerage water following in their neighbourhood, take their mobile phone with the picture, to their nearest community Clinic, ask the Clinic management, to have a Typhoid test conducted, and they must request management to provide a written test report.

The written report should be copied to you as the healer, who must collate your patients results, and forward to the Campus Rudolf Virchow Africa, structure.

Every picture so taken, and request to be tested for Typhoid, will be firing a bullet in support for poverty alleviation.
