I swear this is not a joke, this is real news oh! Gombe Government Procures Anti-snake Venom. If you think it is a joke, you sef go and read the report. I want to very clear, this is ABSOLUTELY a great thing for the people of Gombe state, BUT is this the kind of report that should be NEWS? Should the Gombe State Kaltungo snakebite treatment and research center, not as a matter to standard operating procedures not already HAVE anti snake venom in its coffers to treat the people when bitten by snakes? Its like having the government announce they have gotten Rabies vaccines for all the people in the state.
Even if its a good idea to report this, one woudl assume it will be like in section "C" on the health pages or something, posting this as a headline to be lauded is what is wrong with that Country. What should be normal is now being reflected as super-normal. Nah wah. Now if this was a vaccine that when taken, PREVENTED people from being affected by venomous snake bites... now that would be news to broadcast to the world!
