COVID-19: Leveraging on social capital to ‘Flatten the Curve’ in Eritrea

By James Wakiaga,
Resident Representative, UNDP Eritrea

In Eritrea containment measures are managed by the wardens and members of the community holding each other accountable for the common good of the society. ©Eritrea – Ministry of Information.COVID-. 19 has far defied logic by voraciously impacting poor and rich countries with equal measure. But in Eritrea only 39 infections and zero deaths have been reported so far. This may be largely due to the country harnessing its social capital, in partnership with UNDP.In the African context, social capital – also called ‘Ubuntu’, ‘Undugu’ or ‘Ujamaa’ – means the interpersonal relationships and network that give people a sense of identity, shared responsibility and collective accountability.

Press Release by The Embassy of Eritrea in Germany

German Parliamentary Committee: Indecent statement on Eritrea

In its deliberations on “economic cooperation with Eritrea” on 22 April last week, the Development Committee of the German Bundestag went out of its way to heap insult on the Government of Eritrea. It went further to issue an offensive Press Release of its ill-informed and misguided proceedings.
Why the Parliamentary Committee chose to dwell on this mundane issue at this point in time when the grave danger of COVID-19 is the overarching concern of paramount importance for all countries and peoples in our global community is difficult to understand or decipher.
Optics and bad taste aside, what are the facts?

Gerset: integrated farm Project

Kesete Ghebrehiwet

The construction of Gerset Dam some years back played a substantial role for the establishment of integrated farm activities in Gerset. As part of the wider farm areas of Golug sub-zone, Gerset has moved forward the expansion of farm activities in large scale around Gerset Dam. Since its establishment in 2000, Gerset Farm Project has been expanded into various sections that include horticulture – fruits, vegetables, crops and animal feed — and animal husbandry, Sesame, sorghum and maize are among the most commonly grown during the rainy season. Although the amount of water in the dam is sufficient for carrying out agricultural activities, the sustainability of the farms can only be ensured through judicious utilization of water. For this reason, drip irrigation is promoted to minimize wastage. The farm project has three sections known as “Farm A”, “Farm B” and “Farm C” and around 110 hectares have been cultivated under the first section.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Allow me to extend my warmest congratulations to the entire people of Eritrea inside the country and abroad on this auspicious, 2020, National Independence Day.  Let me also express profound gratitude to the Commission of Culture and Sports, all other entities, and, individuals involved in the creative preparation of programmes and events so as to imbue due splendor to this momentous day despite the looming threat of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Leaving aside the controversial issues on how and where from COVID-19 originated, the colossal threat of this sudden pandemic – unprecedented in the annals of the history of mankind – and that is claiming, sadly, a huge loss of life is indeed a wake-up call for all of us.  What is more perplexing is that the calamity is occurring in the 21st century; in an era of high scientific progress.  In the event, it is timely and incumbent on us to draw appropriate lessons from this disaster, deepen our knowledge and understanding, and adjust our overall approach and roadmap for the period ahead.

Eritrea becomes the first East African country to tackle covid-19

venturesafrica.com | On Friday , May 15, Eritrea ministry of Health declared the country coronavirus (COVID-19) free, after bringing the infected number of patients to zero. For now, Eritrea  became the first East African country to tackle COVID-19 after all 39 patients recovered from the deadly virus. This makes Eritrea among few African countries that have not recorded Covid-19 deaths. Also, Eritrea has now become the third African country after Mauritania and Mauritius to record a 100 per cent patient recovery from the virus. In a statement made by the ministry of health, the last patient “has recovered fully after standard tests at the National Laboratory and was discharged from hospital.” “This result means that all 39 confirmed cases in the country to-date have recovered fully,” the statement read. Despite the current success, the health ministry warned against complacency in the country. It urged citizens to continue adhering to the guidelines set by the government in curbing the spread of the virus, until the government is fully  certain about its COVID-19 status. (more…)

Hamid Idris Awate, the legend

Interview conducted by Billion Temesghen
When one day in the future the world learns about the brigand you really are it will despise you!” Hamid Idris Awate told the English colonizers. Under the British administration industries, radio stations, railways, cable wagon and other assets were dismantled from Eritrea and sold to other countries before Eritrea was annexed by Ethiopia. Hamid fought against it. He is the Eritrean real life Robin Hood. Hamid Idris Awate is an Eritrea legend whose legacy is associated with the beginning of the Eritrean Armed Struggle. Mr. Haileslassie Woldu, a veteran journalist, spent 35 years of his life researching and writing a historical piece on the biography of Hamid Idris Awate. As a biography, it is the first of its kind in Eritrea. It is an accurate account of Hamid’s life based on interviews the author conducted with Hamid’s family and people who came close to Hamid as well as written documents attesting to his valor.

Statement on Random Testing

COVID -19 continues to spread at an alarming rate globally since the first outbreak of the disease in December last year.  To-date, the pandemic has engulfed more than 200 counties and territories infecting more than 4.6 million people and claiming more than 300,000 lives. In the majority of countries, controlling the contagion and levelling the curve still remain elusive objectives and aspirations.   Reversing the rate of transmission and eschewing the risk of resurgence have not, indeed, crystallized yet.

At the same time, the multiple and intensive researches earnestly underway to find vaccines or therapeutic drugs for COVID-19 are still at an early, preliminary phase.  All these factors accentuate the magnitude and gravity of the global pandemic. Against this preoccupying backdrop, the GOE’s strategy of combating COVID-19 has been clear and unequivocal from the outset. The essence of this policy consists of taking, first and foremost, all requisite measures to prevent an outbreak of the disease and to curtail its transmission through robust Non-Pharmaceutical Measures in the event of its occurrence in the country.

A glimpse of Afabet Sub-zone

Written by Habtom Tesfamichael
Eritrea has strategic significance for military purposes and that is why successive colonizers, from the Turks up to the Ethiopians, built up their military bases in this region. As a result, the people of the region were victims of colonial atrocities. There are many documented cases of atrocious acts by the British war planes, the Italians and, more significantly, the Ethiopians. This region was the rear base of the Eritrean revolution during the 30-year war of independence and a fighting ground against the two successive regimes of Ethiopia that moved to crush the growing resistance of Eritreans. As a result, the inhabitants of the sub-zone were compelled to leave their villages. Afabet sub-zone, 8,500 square km. wide, is the biggest sub-zone in the Northern Red Sea region. It has a population of 90 thousand who live in 14 administrative areas.

Since the first announcement of the Ministry of Health regarding the Public Guidelines to be adhered in fighting the spread of COVID-19, we have observed that Eritreans are committed to abide by the regulations issued. Many of the instructions called for during the fight against the Corona virus pandemic have been part of Eritrean culture. To counteract pests, prevent epidemics and ensure the wellbeing of every citizen, Eritreans stand in unison, commitment and compassion. This historical legacy is manifested during the different stages of the armed struggle and the TPLF led government invasion of Eritrea after independence. Eritreans rushed to save their brothers and sisters when villages were burned and many innocent civilians massacred, their belongings looted by Ethiopian soldiers.

Citizens’ awareness of history has a paramount importance to the maintenance and enhancement of national identity. History enriches human experiences, improves the thinking capacity and also breeds new ideas that profoundly contribute to nation building. Understanding and remembering the past promotes collective memory, which should be communicated to present and future generations.The collective memory can be communicated through the performance of different activities and various channels. Visiting historical places is one way of activating national collective memory. Towards that end, on 12th March 2020, seven hundred Eritreans, the majority of whom were young men and women, from all ministries spent the night in the trenches of Nakfa.

1.    Continuous sensitization campaigns will be disseminated through the various local media outlets in order to provide timely and full information to the general public.  These announcements must be followed with due diligence.

2. In view of the potential gravity of the situation and for the sake of their own safety as well as the safety of the Eritrean people, the Ministry of Health urges all nationals and foreigners who may have plans to travel to, and from Eritrea, to postpone their plans on their own volition.

3. The Ministry of Health will continue to monitor developments earnestly to assess occurrence, rate and extent of contagion, and other vital parameters and symptoms of the epidemic. It will accordingly issue appropriate announcements and guidelines.

4. Visitors who originate directly from, or who have transited through, China, Italy, South Korea and Iran will be quarantined.
