According to a report from VOA News over 2000 Ethiopians died of a mysterious disease since 2014.
More than 2,000 nomads in Ethiopia’s Somali region have died since 2014 after falling ill from a mysterious disease that caused bleeding from their mouths and noses.
Other reported symptoms include swollen limbs and green or yellow eyes.
The affected people roam with their cattle around the Ogaden Basin region, which is being explored by companies looking for oil and natural gas.
Reports of the mysterious illness and deaths have drawn Western reporters and researchers from rights groups to investigate.
Residents of Calub, Ethiopia, have accused a Chinese project that includes construction of a pipeline from Ogaden to Djibouti of destroying the environment where their animals are grazing.
Chinese firm Poly-GCL has been prospecting for natural oil and gas in Ogaden since 2014. It is expected to start commercial gas production soon. The Ethiopian government has signed a deal with the Chinese company that gives it 50% of any income from oil or gas exploration.
The pipeline will enable Ethiopia to export natural gas.
Local residents say they have not been consulted.
The intresting part of this story is the fact that the disease came right after the Chinese Gas Company moved in. Obviously, this story is becoming bigger because of the fact the Chinese are responsible for the Chinavirus panademic that is threatening the world currently.
This also shows us why it is so important that we aren’t so intertwined with China. China makes a deal with the ruling class in the country and then put the citizens of that country at risk. China can’t ever be trusted. Their goals are simply to enrich their regime.
