Covid-19: A Pandemic

The coronavirus outbreak has been labelled a pandemic by the World Health Organization. 

WHO chief Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the number of cases outside China had increased 13-fold in two weeks. More tellingly, he said he was "deeply concerned" by "alarming levels of inaction". 

We shouldn’t be too surprised by this development because Covid-19 will spread and spread, everywhere and anywhere. 

And the only way to protect ourselves is to strengthen our immunity system, period. 

Mikey Bustos – I had featured him twice before – gives us a Covid-19 parody that is sung to the tune of Lady Gaga’s “Stupid Love”. He calls it “Stupid Cough”. 

This video even includes helpful tips indicated on the WHO website. Stay healthy and safe, everyone!

Liverpool are out of the Champions League. 

Yes, we were knocked out of the competition on Wednesday by Spanish side Atletico Madrid. 

The game at Anfield finished 3-2 to Atletico, meaning the aggregate score of the two games was 4-2 to the Madrid team, who had won the first game 1-0. 

It also means the current title holders won't be lifting the trophy for a second consecutive season. Sigh! Life goes on lah.

And we are now a mere two days from World Speech Day 2020!
