Coronavirus reaches African continent.
Over the past few months, the coronavirus pandemic seemed to stay out of the African continent. Coronavirus came around in the world's largest concentration of people with HIV. However this is no longer the case as people are now starting to prepare for the worst.
The first cases of COVID-19 in sub-Saharan Africa were confirmed just three weeks ago but the rate of infection in countries like South Africa is climbing easily.
With more than 200 people infected, the government has announced that schools are shutting down and large gatherings are banned.
The police is arresting citizens who test positive to the coronavirus and refuse to go into quarantine.
However, the authorities can't stop the coronavirus spreading and just about everyone in this country understands it, including South Africa's health minister Dr Zweli Mkhize.
"In any community, 60% to 70% of the population will be affected by the virus. We can't hide that... most of us will have this virus," he told a group of doctors in the capital Pretoria.
He asked the nation to be careful and understand the harmful effects of coronavirus, while South Africa has "unique dynamics" he said, with the world's largest concentration of people with HIV, plus a significant number with tuberculosis.
One of the main measures to stop the spreading of coronavirus is social distancing, which means that gyms are closed. Even if there are such circumstances, we need to stay fit and healthy.

He has been living at the airport for 110 days. An Estonian has been unable to leave the Manila terminal since March
He has been living at the airport for over 100 days. Roman Trofimov arrived at the airport in Manila, Philippines on March 20, aboard an Air Asia aircraft. From then until now, the airport has become his home because he could not leave.
Roman Trofimov lives a nightmare worthy of Kafka's books. He arrived in Manila, Philippines, on March 20 and has been making desperate efforts to be assisted by authorities. The Estonian said he ran out of passports when he passed the Immigration office, so it was impossible for him to get Air Asia to Thailand.
Then came the COVID-19 pandemic, and the entire planet blocked hundreds of thousands of flights. But Trofimov hoped he would be able to return to Bangkok, Thailand, because the number of illnesses was kept under control by the authorities. But hopes were dashed.
Following the suspension of flights in South Asia, the Philippine authorities did not allow him to enter the country because visas were no longer issued. So his only home remained "no man's land," that is, the airport. He was stranded in the Manila airport terminal and on July 7 ticked exactly 110 days since he turned the transit area into his second home.
Initially, the Estonian tourist hoped to reach the province of Cebu, in the Philippines, and had to board a flight to his destination on March 20. He was compensated for the suspended race, but the situation did not change. The Estonian television station ERR explained that Trofimov had a "gray passport", a document specific to people with unclear citizenship.
He was left without a passport after his document was withheld at the Immigration Office. He asked for the help of the Estonian Embassy, and the authorities said that he refused a repatriation flight on the grounds that "the embassy asked him to pay 1,500 euros". In reply, officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that "Trofimov took the risk when he traveled during a period when flights were suspended."
In the age of digital transformation, technology has permeated nearly every aspect of our lives, revolutionizing the way we communicate, work, and even learn. Nowhere is this more evident than in the field of education, where innovative technologies are reshaping traditional teaching methods and offering new opportunities for personalized learning. This article delves into the pivotal role of technology in modern education and examines the myriad ways it is enhancing the learning experience for students worldwide.
One of the most transformative aspects of technology in education is its ability to democratize access to knowledge. The internet, coupled with online learning platforms, has made it possible for students from all corners of the globe to access high-quality educational resources at their fingertips. Whether it's a lecture from a renowned professor at a prestigious university or interactive learning modules tailored to individual learning styles, technology has leveled the playing field, making education more accessible and inclusive than ever before.
Moreover, technology has enabled educators to adopt more interactive and engaging teaching methods. Traditional chalk-and-talk methods are giving way to multimedia-rich learning experiences that cater to diverse learning preferences. Interactive simulations, virtual reality experiences, and gamified learning modules are just a few examples of how technology is making learning more interactive, immersive, and fun. These innovative approaches not only capture students' attention but also foster critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration skills essential for success in the 21st-century workforce.
Additionally, technology has played a crucial role in personalizing the learning experience. Adaptive learning algorithms analyze students' performance and adapt the content and pace of instruction to suit their individual needs and abilities. This personalized approach ensures that students receive targeted support and resources, allowing them to learn at their own pace and achieve better learning outcomes. Furthermore, technology-enabled tools such as digital textbooks, interactive quizzes, and real-time feedback mechanisms empower students to take control of their learning journey, fostering a sense of autonomy and self-directed learning.
Furthermore, technology has facilitated greater collaboration and connectivity in the educational landscape. Virtual classrooms, collaborative online platforms, and social learning networks enable students to connect with peers and educators from around the world, fostering a global community of learners. These collaborative experiences not only broaden students' perspectives but also cultivate essential skills such as communication, empathy, and cultural awareness in an increasingly interconnected world.
However, it's essential to recognize that while technology offers immense potential to transform education, its effective integration requires thoughtful planning, professional development, and ongoing support. Educators must be equipped with the necessary skills and training to leverage technology effectively in their teaching practice. Moreover, considerations around digital equity, data privacy, and online safety are paramount to ensure that all students can benefit from technology-enhanced learning experiences in a safe and inclusive environment.
In conclusion, technology holds the promise to revolutionize education, making it more accessible, engaging, and personalized. By harnessing the power of technology, educators can create enriching learning experiences that empower students to thrive in the digital age. As we continue to navigate the evolving landscape of education, embracing technology as a catalyst for innovation and growth will be key to shaping a brighter, more inclusive future for learners everywhere.
REAL MADRID PREPARE JERSEY PLAN TO TEMPT KYLIAN MBAPPE FROM PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN IN SUMMER — PAPER ROUND
Real Madrid hope to sign Kylian Mbappe on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain, while Galatasaray winger Wilfried Zaha could make a return to the Premier League in the summer. Elsewhere, both Manchester United and Liverpool are interested in appointing Brighton’s Roberto De Zerbi as their new manager, and Paris Saint-Germain are looking at how to rebuild their side.
REAL TRY TO TEMPT MBAPPE
Real Madrid are planning to offer Kylian Mbappe the club’s №10 shirt in an attempt to convince him to move from Paris Saint-Germain.
The striker is out of contract in the summer and is widely expected to leave on a free transfer.
The Sun reports: “Kylian Mbappe will be handed Real Madrid’s legendary №10 jersey if he completes a move to the Santiago Bernabeu.
“Mbappe, 25, has informed Paris Saint-Germain he won’t trigger an option to extend his contract by another year and will thus leave in June as a free agent.
“Los Blancos are trying to sweeten the deal by offering him the same shirt number wore by past legends, such as Ferenc Puskas, Luis Figo and Clarence Seedorf.
ZAHA COULD RETURN TO ENGLAND
West Ham and Aston Villa are two sides who are keen on bringing back Wilfried Zaha to the Premier League.
The Mirror suggests that he might call time on his Galatasaray adventure as soon as this summer.
The paper explains: “Wilfried Zaha could return to the Premier League at the end of the season, barely 12 months on from departing.
“The winger brought his second spell with Crystal Palace to an end after eight years to join Galatasaray last summer. Zaha turned down a new deal with the Eagles that would have seen him commit for a further four years on a weekly wage of £200,000.
“The 31-year-old signed a three-year deal with the Turkish side and has made a noticeable impact. Zaha has scored nine times and provided three assists in 21 Super Lig appearances and featured in each of his side’s European games across the Champions League and Europa League.”
MAN UTD AND LIVERPOOL EYE DE ZERBI
The Mail reports that Manchester United and Liverpool are both considering Roberto De Zerbi as their next manager.
With Erik ten Hag’s future at Old Trafford uncertain and Jurgen Klopp to leave Liverpool in the summer, both clubs may need replacements.
The paper writes: “‘Find the next Roberto De Zerbi.’ Up and down the land, chairmen and chief executives have issued the same instruction to their recruitment teams thanks to the Italian’s eye-catching impact at Brighton.
“Dancing around his technical area with his natty black jumpers, spiky hair and immaculately tended beard, De Zerbi has bewitched the boardrooms of the Premier League since he landed in England in September 2022.
“There will be a change of manager at Liverpool this summer and very possibly at Manchester United too, with Dan Ashworth poised to take control of the football structure. De Zerbi has admirers at both clubs as well as overseas. His style would be perfect for Barcelona and the big hitters back home in Italy love him too.”
