President Donald Trump says the US will request the bill for Prince Harry and Meghan's security, as the pair moved to the US from Canada.


Mr Trump mentions on his Twitter page that he is "a great friend and admirer of the Queen and the United Kingdom", but also he highlighted that: "They must pay!"

Harry and Meghan said they had no intention to ask for publicly funded security on the territory of U.S.


They have moved to Meghan's home state of California due to the intensifying coronavirus outbreak.

They had to officially step down as senior royals on 31 March and respectively no longer carry out duties on behalf of the Queen, but these decisions will be reviewed after one year.

The couple mentioned that: "The duke and duchess have no plans to ask the US government for security resources. Privately funded security arrangements have been made.”

The family of Harry have spent much of this year in Canada's west coast, the last month the Canadian government announced that it would stop providing security assistance to the family.


The family moved to the Los Angeles area where Meghan was raised and where her mother, Doria Ragland, now lives, so Mr. Trump decided to follow the decision of the Canadian government, and did the same announcement regarding the security assistance.


The president's announcement tangents with coronavirus, while it continues spreading across the US. There are currently more than 135,000 confirmed cases, and approximately 2,381 deaths.

In California, coronavirus cases got around 5,565 and also there are 121 reported deaths.

Harry's father, the Prince of Wales, tested positive for coronavirus, but he "remains in good health".

who-said-quarantine-should-be-boring-the-sensational-idea-of-a-mother-to-avoid-routine

Who said that isolation at home during the COVID-19 pandemic must be boring, become a nightmare and a torment?  Young mother Rachael Havenhand woke up locked up in the house with her two 8- and 5-year-old daughters and had a sensational idea.

While most of the countries are starting to each quarantine restrictions, there are still many families that are scared to go out and return to their old life. According to wordmeters.info, there are currently almost 5 million confirmed cases and more than 323.715 deaths, while around 2% of those people infected are either in serious or critical condition.

On top of the list, we see the US with 93,110 deaths, followed by the UK with 35,681 cases and Italy with almost 33.000 victims. The good news is that we see the number of new infections going down, which means that the quarantine restrictions that have been implemented are starting to take effect. 

 

As the gyms and fitness centers are yet to stay closed for the foreseeable future, Rachael Havenhand (28) from Sheffield, South Yorkshire, UK, is a fitness instructor and has been forced to stay home for two weeks now.  Since mid-March, the British government has ordered the closure of cinemas and theaters.

Self-isolated overnight with her two daughters Gabriella (8 years old) and Florence (5 years old), Rachael took her cellphone and bought a lot of "decorative nonsense" from eBay.  She did not spend more than 300 pounds and woke up to the door with over 200 kg of brightly colored objects.

 Helped by the two little girls, the mother got on the job and turned the oppressive and colorful house anost in beige and cream shades into a real Barbie doll house.

"We spend a lot of time in the kitchen because here girls do their homework and here they spend 4-5 hours a day preparing snacks or food.  So I started the decorations with the kitchen, then followed the hall, the living room, the stairs and the bedroom, ”Havenhand told the Daily Mail.

 After the house was filled with colors, the mood of the house changed radically.  The colors he used were pink, purple, green with several shades, blue, cherry and yellow.

And because the entire house has become a toy for the three housewives, they continue to use their creativity to the full and still paint the walls with abstract shapes and childish designs, which, later, Mother Rachael transforms into murals.  Obviously, after the girls fall asleep.

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.

arnold-schwarzenegger-advices-fans-to-stay-home-while-the-novel-coronavirus-pandemic-intensifies

The battle against the novel coronavirus pandemic intensifies, celebrities are using their social networks to urge people to help stop the spread of the virus by practicing social distancing.

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.
