Luckily, a storm in March 2020 managed to push the ship up to 5 miles. This keeps Mohammed Aisha close enough to swim to the shoreline.
Syrian sailor Mohammed Aisha was finally allowed to leave the "cursed" ship after spending nearly four years of his life there. He alone had to survive off the coast of Egypt.
According to the BBC, Aisha boarded the MV Aman in May 2017 and was appointed chief officer of the ship. But two months later, his voyage went awry after Egyptian port authorities detained the cargo ship because its safety equipment had expired.
Aisha, as the chief commander, was later made the "official guard" of the ship, which meant that she could not leave the ship until it was sold or someone else took custody. This was the beginning of his deteriorating fate.
A report from The Middle East Eye explains that the situation is going from bad to worse. Neither the ship owner nor the contractor could afford the fuel due to financial difficulties. As a result, MV Aman was left on the Suez Canal, along with Aisha.
Aisha at that time did not really understand the dire situation, until her crew began to leave her, the days turned to months. Aisha had actually been there alone for two years, with only the guards visiting her every once in a while.
A ship that runs out of fuel is not only unable to run but also unable to provide electric power. Aisha had to live among the mice and insects in the ship.
"You can't see anything," he told the BBC. "You can't hear anything. It's like you are in a coffin."
It was not enough to stop there, the pain in his heart became even more intense when in 2008 he heard the news of his mother's death. He could not see his mother saying goodbye for the last time. "I am seriously considering ending my life," he said.
Luckily, a storm in March 2020 managed to push the ship up to 5 miles. This kept Aisha close enough to swim to the shoreline. Aisha was finally released on Thursday by the International Transport Workers Federation (ITF) when representatives from the organization took over legal custody of the cargo ship.
India Experienced a 'Tsunami' Corona to Record More Than 300,000 Positive Cases Per Day?
On Saturday (24/4), the Indian Ministry of Health reported 346,786 positive cases in a day. So, How Can India Experience the 'Tsunami' COVID-19?
India is currently facing a very high spike in cases of the corona virus (COVID-19). It is no longer a wave, India is even said to have experienced a "tsunami" COVID-19.
Daily positive cases of COVID-19 in India have even reached more than 300 thousand for three consecutive days. On Saturday (24/4), the Indian Ministry of Health reported 346,786 positive cases in a day. So, how did India experience the "tsunami" COVID-19?
The President of the Indian Public Health Foundation, K. Srinath Reddy, stated that his country was caught off guard after assuming the COVID-19 pandemic would end in January 2021. It is known, India's COVID-19 cases experienced a decline in September 2020 to mid-February 2021.
The Indian government, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is said to have ignored the warning of a second wave of COVID-19 as cases have decreased. Even though the media reported that a new COVID-19 variant had been identified in India since last January.
"We continue to warn that the pandemic is not over but nobody is listening," said Rakesh Mishra, senior lead scientist and director of the Hyderabad-based Center for Cellular and Molecular Biology. After the first wave of COVID-19, said Mishra, India's health system was back in dealing with another medical emergency that had been neglected. Special COVID-19 facilities were also returned to their previous functions.
Then in March 2021, India's Health Minister declared that their country was in the "end game" of the COVID-19 pandemic as justification for the government to export medical resources to other countries. For information, India increased oxygen exports to other countries by 734 percent in January 2021.
However, everything changed when India recorded a surge in positive cases of COVID-19 starting in mid-April 2021. At that time, India recorded more than 200 thousand positive cases per day. Now, hospitals in India are running low on oxygen.
On April 23, Indian media reported that 25 critically ill COVID-19 patients died from lack of oxygen at a government hospital in Delhi. "The surge took us by surprise and the (health) system is now completely overwhelmed," Mishra continued.
The second wave of COVID-19 in India has been linked
with the B117 variant which was first discovered in the UK. In addition, there is also a variant that grows domestically, called B.1.617, with two alarming mutations.
In addition to the new variant, the euphoria of vaccination is also thought to be one of the causes of the spike in COVID-19. A year spent exhausted by the pandemic gave rise to the false euphoria of herd immunity when cases began to decline in January.
