Arnold Schwarzenegger advices fans to stay home, while the novel coronavirus pandemic intensifies.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, who in a posted video is feeding his pet donkey and miniature pony in the kitchen, is consequently asking his fans to consider the safety of everyone around.
In the clip Schwarzenegger is spending quality time with Whiskey the pony and Lulu the donkey while staying at home, the celebrity is arguing that limiting time spent in public isn't all that bad.
"See, the important thing is that you stay at home, because there's a curfew now. No one is allowed out. Especially someone who is, like, 72 years old (referring to himself). After you are 65, you are not allowed out of the house anymore in California. So we stay home and we eat here," Schwarzenegger mentions.
The star is telling his furry friends: "We don't go out, we don't go to restaurants, we don't do anything like that anymore here."
Schwarzenegger told his 4.4 million Twitter followers that they are the one who can protect older people with weaker immune systems and not only, but everyone around so people will not contact the deadly virus.
"Stay at home as much as possible. Listen to the experts, ignore the morons (foreheads). We will get through this together," Schwarzenegger highlighted in his tweet.
On social media, Pink mentioned that she and her son spent weeks in isolation after testing positive for coronavirus tests, but they both finally tested negative for the infection a few days ago.
When she and 3-year-old Jameson started showing symptoms two weeks ago they were already sheltering in place, she said. She is thankful for her doctor that he was able to get Pink and her son tested in time for the virus.
"Two weeks ago my three-year old son, Jameson, and I are were showing symptoms of COVID-19," she said on her Instagram page. "Fortunately, our primary care physician had access to tests and I tested positive. My family was already sheltering at home and we continued to do so for the last two weeks following the instruction of our doctor. Just a few days ago we were re-tested and are now thankfully negative."
She added that she had contributed with $1 million— half of the donation is going to the Emergency Fund for Temple University Hospital and the other part to City of Los Angeles Mayor's Emergency Covid-19 Crisis Fund.
Many of actors, musicians and famous politicians have tested positive for coronavirus.
Pink is one of celebrities that have contributed to fighting coronavirus, as the virus spreads fastly across the United States, which is slowly becoming the new epicenter of the illness.
You can’t find a protective mask in pharmacies or it’s price is hitting you? If you want to protect yourself, a mask to cover the mouth and nose can be made at home. However, a textile mask is not as effective as a surgical one, but it is very useful during this period. If you do not know how to sew, with a scissors, a piece of material and two hair bands you can make a protective mask.
The American Center for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) has reverted to previous recommendations made in the context of the pandemic and currently believes that wearing simple masks in textiles could slow the spread of coronavirus.
Instructions for making your home a protective mask
The material used should be cut in such a way that it is wide and long enough to cover your nose and mouth
The material should be bent at length.
At each end tie a hair elastic.
Bring the ends tied inwards.
Arrange the mask near the mouth and nose and fasten the elastics behind the ears.
It is important to know:
•Simple surgical masks have a much higher protection than textiles.
• Even if we wear a mask, we must keep at least 3 steps away from the others.
•We disinfect / wash our hands before and after putting on our masks and do not touch them when wearing them.
•After each use, the textile masks must be washed: a washing machine is sufficient.
•Such textile masks are especially useful in places where physical distance is difficult to maintain: queues, small shops or pharmacies, crowded means of transport, etc.
• This recommendation can be used as an additional public health measure.
• The CDC emphasizes that textile masks should not be worn by children under 2 years of age or by persons with respiratory problems.
• The materials from which the textile masks are made do not sufficiently protect the hospital environment.
•The World Health Organization strongly recommends wearing surgical masks or special protective masks in the hospital environment.
Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson have been released from the hospital and are now in self-quarantine at their home in Australia.
The celebrity couple had been diagnosed with novel coronavirus last week, further being hospitalized.
Hanks and Wilson are in Australia for some working on a movie about the famous singer Elvis Presley. Hanks got a good role in the movie, which is Presley's manager, Colonel Tom Parker.
The shootings and other works on the project are currently suspended.
The couple share news on Instagram about their health and their ongoing recovery.
"We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches. Rita had some chills that came and went. Slight fevers too. To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive,' Hanks mentions in his Instagram post. "Well, now. What to do next? The Medical Officials have protocols that must be followed. We Hanks' will be tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requires. Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time approach, no? We'll keep the world posted and updated. Take care of yourselves!"
Over the weekend, Hanks is sharing updates on their recovery. Wilson even made a playlist which encourages and motivates others who are self-isolating or in quarantine.
The coronavirus pandemic hits the world's largest companies! Facebook employees will work from home for a long period
Good news for Facebook employees! The founder of the famous social network made an unusual announcement on Thursday, May 21. He said he would allow a considerable number of Facebook's 50,000 employees, as well as new recruits, to work from home all the time!
Mark Zuckerberg said on Thursday, May 21, that in the next five to 10 years, about 50% of Facebook's workforce will work remotely. The founder of the social network added that this will involve, among other things, a radical change in the way the famous Silicon Valley-based company operates.
Mark Zuckerberg explained that the process is a long one and that it will take place in a series of steps that must be followed exactly in order to be successful. The first step is "an aggressive opening of distance recruitment," first in the United States, then abroad, beyond urban centers where Facebook has offices. "I don't think it's good to limit employment to people living around offices," said the Facebook CEO.
The Facebook founder is not the first to think of such a radical measure! Also on Thursday, the head of Twitter announced that his employees could work from home indefinitely. The Canadian e-commerce company Shopify announced a similar measure later that day, as the coronavirus pandemic paved the way for unexpected changes in the organization and operation of large companies around the world.
