Cabinet Notes: No Case of Rheumatic Fever was discovered in Schools


The Minister of Health reported that no case of rheumatic fever was discovered in schools, following vigorous testing of students.

However, utilizing the resources provided by the WHO, five hundred women have been tested for HPV, 25% of whom have tested positive.

Sufficient resources are remaining to test an additional 1,000 women and these tests will continue to be carried out until the resources are exhausted.

One of the outcomes of HPV is cervical cancer; this cancer can be eliminated by treatment if caught early.

A robust program of testing and treatment will be carried out by the Ministry of Health.

  1. Before you go and do testing on people’s children please to ask parents consent, cuz anyone go test my kids without consent just remember I will sue, I will go and take my kids to a specialist, since vivid came in there is a fashion label that has been place to go get tested like it’s gold, put God first as he can heal us if we place our life in his hands. I make sure I question my kids everyday.

  2. Will the HPV vaccine become mandatory because “25% of tested women were positive”? Are you telling the women that there are over 100 types of HPV viruses — and that only a few select types are associated with cervical cancer? (Type 6,11,16,18)
    Sistahs, do y’all know about vaginal aka yoni steaming and how to do it? Utilizing herbs such as rosemary, oregano, wormwood, mugwort & basil you can do this easy, safe and effective vaginal/ cervical, uterine cleanse.
    It’s the same concept as steaming the upper respiratory tract that I’m sure most of you already aware of. ⚠️ Just make sure the H2O is NOT too HOT⚠️ Steaming is an ancient African tradition.
    Take charge of your own health!!
