(#CovidCast) Covid-19: Vaccine Too Fast or On Time
In late 2019, the Coronavirus was isolated. According to Wikipedia, its genetic sequence was published on 11 January 2020, triggering an urgent international response to prepare for an outbreak and hasten the development of a preventive COVID-19 vaccine. Creating a vaccine in under 1 year is no small feat. While the coronavirus pandemic made a new normal of mask-wearing and physical distancing, it also spurred global cooperation for vaccine research and distribution. However, a vaccine is only effective if people are willing to receive it. With rapid research development, some may be concerned that the vaccine was rushed, and with these concerns comes vaccine hesitancy. In this episode, I sat down with Dr Solomon Cholom, a Medical Laboratory Scientist to discuss the COVID-19 vaccine development - how vaccines were rapidly made without compromising safety.

(#CovidCast) Covid-19 Vaccine: Why Nigerians Don't Trust The Government
Nigerian officials say the country is ready to receive its first COVID-19 vaccine doses by the end of January. The government wants to vaccinate 40% of the country's population by the end of this year. But experts say the cost and storage of the vaccine poses a challenge.

Demystifying Misinformation, Stigmatization and Fear about COVID19 Pandemic.
Misinformation is false or inaccurate information that is communicated regardless of an intention to deceive. Examples of misinformation are false rumors, insults, and pranks. Stigmatization is when someone views you in a negative way because you have a distinguishing characteristic or personal trait that's thought to be, or actually is, a disadvantage (a negative stereotype).  Discrimination is not justified and has negative consequences for stigmatized people. We cannot allow COVID-19 to serve as a vehicle for racism. Instead, we can focus our energy on solutions and positive thoughts to combat infection and disinformation. Let's practice collective solidarity to support people affected by the virus.  Joey Shekwonuzhibo and other digital influencers were on #WorkingTogetherAgainstCorona to discuss these issues.

Why Plateau State Can Emerge as The Next Silicon Valley in Africa
On this episode of Joey OffAir Podcast, we have Mr David Daser, the Director General of Plateau State Information and Communication Technology Development Agency (PICTDA) and a Story teller of Jos to the world. He defines Jos as People and a place of diversity and convergence of amazing people. As someone who is the government he said he had to learn and unlearn policies in order to effectively bring developers into Plateau in order to build the state. Technological wise, he believes that Jos has to rewire it's system in order to succeed in making Jos a silicon village and they are trying to build a silicon Plateau that is tech and IT base that has policy, talent and market and with the journey so far, Jos is on the path of almost achieving this dream. Daser said that Jos has become an inspiration to other states in the country to work on developing their ICT. On policies, he said they are important and they have used them in different areas of the state such as the health and the private sector. Soon, the State will be built as a developing centre instead of talents leaving the land in search of greener land pasture. David Daser's final thought is for people to always go up, aim for the best and never settle for little. Take a listen! Website: Facebook: Twitter: Instagram:
