Is it compulsory for BBC reporters to stand near sewerage area and show a negative picture about Pakistan, India and Africa for reporting ? 🤔

Yes delevoping countries have financial crisis but I always find it heard to understand the media when they try to show the poorest places. Eg this woman is showing probably the poorest place in Kenya ie Kibera, why dont you show places like muthaiga, westlands cos you want to show the world that you are poor or what?

For your information even those so called developed countries they have far bigger problems, eg homeless people in the streets. So please when you show Kibera also show us how those in Karen are coping with Coronavirus. Thank you much love

Answer: We will not cope! We are already struggling as it is and the British Acting PM has already said that the government has been too slow to deal with the Coronavirus.

Look, it’s that simple wealth divide. When the wealthy in these countries like to keep all the money for themselves, you end up with more casualties. The wealthy would rather have another plane, as opposed to building a health clinic.

The BBC Loves a good disaster. The breathless style of reporting, the dramatic pauses between words and the chance to show crying women, and if they're lucky, crying men. COVID 19 allows the BBC to excel at miserable Left-Wing doom-mongering. I truly hate being forced to pay for this rot.

Our leaders of countries are so corrupt, the well beings of who they represents are being ignored,
years of national budgets are spent on unnecessary items such as corporate welfare, unplanned developments, self indulgence and military spending.
When disasters hit, most nations don't really have the sufficient resource to cope with the onslaught and people are suffering even before disasters strike,
it is still pondering why these "national leaders" weren't being prosecuted as treason until today.

great apparently. if you look at maps it only effects western economies. That would seem odd for anyone that believed there was a virus.

Like they always have. With very little help from supposedly humanitarian, caring nations.

So you’re going to keep up with this negative posting and calling it keeping people informed? It’s on the downhill slide common sense tells you the more concentrated population we have the more cases we will have duh
