    Novel CoronaVirus (COVID-19) Updates & Discussion 2

    The new stats show that Italy had 11191 new infections and 1645 deaths in the last 24 hours. Their highest numbers yet. Now that the numbers are so high the absolute percentage growth is going to look smaller, but the actual real number increase is still scary :crying:

    South African Covid-19 Corona Virus News and updates

    So we are sitting at 709 cases now. That's quite a steep curve. Hopefully, this lockdown will help to flatten the curve a bit, but I think it's already too late. I'm hoping I'm wrong though.

    Kingdom: Korean series on Netflix

    Season 2 dropped yesterday and I binged it all. I think it was really good with another cliffhanger ending that looks like we are going to meet the main villain.

    Novel CoronaVirus (COVID-19) Updates & Discussion

    I wonder how safe the people being evacuated will be if the rumours are true that the quarantine facilities are in Thaba Nchu. I'm sure there will be protests and various political parties will probably be involved.
