Watching #EASTENDERS is a different experience in the #Coronavirius era. They like to reference current affairs, especially big public events like elections, sport and jubilees... and #Brexit. Not possible with #COVID19
#Eastenders cannot reference the coronavirus because the set is locked down. But even if they could film, it’s a soap opera, which depends on people wandering around the locale: interacting, gossiping and eavesdropping.
Every now and then #Eastenders do a ‘bottle episode’ set in one room or house, with limited characters. It’s good and fun when they do it…

But the reason they’re good is because they’re unusual. Eastenders is not a set of discrete plays.

“To be honest, I don’t give a damn if that boy with #hemophilia just died in Wuhan...Why not just die in #China?”

Those are words of Taiwanese internet celebrity Chen Yee #陳沂, now agreed by many on social media.
#coronavirus #COVID19 #武漢肺炎
The kid had previously made headlines bc he was in urgent need of medical supplies but was stranded in #Hubei. Local media had used him as a symbol for at-risk groups to press the govt to made evacuation plans.
But since locals found out that his mum was born & raised in #China and has posted pro-Chinese comments on Facebook, public opinion divided. More people like Chen believe that it’s a waste of resources, & that they don’t deserve it.

Note: Both kid & mum hold a TW passport.

"This is probably the tenth drug store that I've gone to purchase masks & hand sanitizing gels. They say we have received written orders from authorities to not sell masks & hand sanitizing gels," this man says.

Welcome to #Iran under the mullahs' regime.


@WHO "A coronavirus patient in Nejatollahi Avenue... The situation is very, very dire. They're not telling us anything!" the man says.

The regime in #Iran has dangerously refused to provide necessary information to the Iranian people.


@WHO @MSF Various officials constantly denied #coronavirus signs in #Iran.

Today, an MP said over 50 people died of the virus in his city alone.

The mullahs' regime is the biggest threat to the lives of Iranians and millions across the region.

Et si on parlait #Coronavirius #covid ?

Allez... 2-3 choses
Bon, faut pas se leurrer, la pandémie est proche, ce qui n’est qu’une histoire de définition. Même le patron de Pasteur, avec beaucoup de diplomatie, l’affirme en parlant de transmission communautaire, c’est à dire de modes de transmission non individualisés. #Coronavirius
L’incubation est toujours retenue aux alentours de 6 jours en moyenne. J’ai lu comme vous des papiers indiquant des durées jusqu’à 27 jours. La communauté scientifique semble très dubitative et méfiante sur ces chiffres... #Coronavirius

Pour le moment c’est 6 jours.

#Cambodia had already earned high praise from the #US #president to the #WHO chief for allowing #Westerdam to dock. News of #American woman from Westerdam with #COVID19 #coronavirus on landing in #Malaysia definitely not something #phnompenh wants to hear… ImageImageImageImage
#Cambodia #PM #HunSen quoted saying "if there were people contracting the disease on the ship, I would still allow it to dock as soon as it could". An #American #Westerdam passenger now found with #Coronavirius #COVD19 in #Malaysia. Did the PM know prior?…
#Cambodia #PM #HunSen response to handling #Coronavirius #COVID19 in stark contrast to #Malaysia saying it would never have allowed #Westerdam passengers to leave its #KL airport if they had known passengers may have the virus. Passengers flew out after docking in #Sihanoukville Image
