Nigerian Man Invents Breast Cancer-Detecting Bra To Save Rural Women

A primary school teacher has invented an affordable cancer-detecting bra to help women with early detection after a woman died from breast cancer.

 

Idris Dangana, 43, a Kano native, was unfulfilled with his job as a teacher and wanted to do more to help his community.

Consequently, he decided to quit and develop his interest in learning computer and software development skills.

 

Idris confided in a friend, Isah, who had just returned from Burum Burum Village in Kano, where a woman had just died from breast cancer.

 

Idris said the story reminded him of the pains his sister went through when she had breast cancer. Fortunately, she survived it. This spurred him to seek a solution.

 

Idris, a graduate of physics education, started researching on cancer and set up BCScan, an innovation of the DiceHub (DIHub), which is behind the cancer-detecting device they would later come up with.

 

He was soon trying out different models and algorithms and they had to think of the best possible way to go about it, alongside doctors who collaborated on the project.

Bill Gates – Coronavirus (COVID-19)Tests Are Complete Waste

Bill Gates, the former CEO and best known as the co-founder of Microsoft Corporation believes Coronavirus tests are a ‘complete waste.’

 

According to the gates, the amount of time it takes for test results to come back means they don’t achieve the purpose for which they were carried out, which is timely isolation of the patient before the spread of the disease begins.

ALSO READ:

According to Bill Gates, whose foundation, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has donated hundreds of millions of dollars to treatment and vaccine research for Covid-19, people need to get results back sooner so that they’re able to “change their behavior so they’re not infecting other people.”

“The simplest thing, which has to do with such insanity, is you should not reimburse somebody for getting a test that it takes more than 48 hours to get the result back,” Gates said in an interview with CNBC.

“That test is a complete waste. And to all these numbers about how much we test, the majority is just complete waste,”

According to Bill Gates, it is also insane to have to pay for test results that could take more than three days and up to a full week.

 

Adm. Brett Giroir, the assistant secretary for health at the US Department of Health and Human Services, agrees with Bill Gates that testing needs to be improved.

 

Giroir speaking with CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.” said;

“I started out by saying that we are never going to be happy with testing until we get turnaround times within 24 hours, and I would be happy with point-of-care testing everywhere. We are not there yet. We are doing everything we can to do that,”
