Reports emerged about the business Slay queens indulge in called the ‘Dubai Porta Potty’, and experts have warned that the ladies risk infection that may cause a pandemic.
The news had been trending on social media for some time, and it’s widely alleged that such acts take place in Dubai.
‘Dubai Porta Potty’ refers to ladies who travel to Dubai through agents to perform unimaginable acts for money. Some acts include eating sh*ts and having sexual intercourse with dogs and salmons.
There were questions from netizens about how this act could affect the ladies and their health. In regard to that, medical experts have warned about how it could spark infections in the country to the rest of the world.
According to experts, sex with animals could bring health-related disaster which might turn into a pandemic. The former Chairman, Lagos State Chapter of the Nigerian Veterinary Medical Association, NVMA, Dr. Alao Mobolaji, the dog sex video may lead to an outbreak of infectious diseases of zoonotic origin.
He expressed worry that there is a strong likelihood that unknown diseases may begin to emerge sooner than later.
Experts have expressed their worry about the rapid transfer of virus from animals to humans and reiterated that laws should be passed to address “sexual intercourse between animal and man.”
Another expert also noted that there are more than two viruses which are transferred from animals, especially dogs, to humans and that makes him worried.
He said monkeypox, Ebola, Canine brucellosis among others are the known viruses for now.
According to the World Health Organisation, WHO, zoonosis is an infectious disease that has jumped from a non-human animal to humans.
Zoonotic pathogens may be bacterial, viral or parasitic, or may involve unconventional agents and can spread to humans through direct contact or through food, water or the environment.
They represent a major public health problem around the world due to our close relationship with animals in agriculture, as companions and in the natural environment.
The WHO report also states that Zoonoses comprise a large percentage of all newly identified infectious diseases as well as many existing ones. Some diseases, such as HIV, began as zoonosis but later mutated into human-only strains.
Other zoonoses can cause recurring disease outbreaks such as Ebola virus disease and salmonellosis. Still others, such as the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19 have the potential to cause global pandemics.
