“I can’t say I’m not surprised that this has happened again. A wake-up call? No, it’s a problem that needs to be addressed first! We need to improve our beautiful city.”

“I tweeted because I saw a video full of gutters in Defense, flooding the streets of Gulistan-e-Jauhar, PECHS & Baldia & a city ravaged by rain again. I have no political agenda whatsoever. I am only a citizen of Pakistan & care for the welfare of people people in my hometown. “

“Pakistanis should be able to celebrate the rain, not lament about it! Mix my words as you like but too many people suffer every year because of this problem, and that is what kills me. “

Coronavirus continues to take its toll in the US, Brazil when cases increase globally | Instant News

The world has been battling viruses for months, but “invisible enemies” never give up.

The corona virus seems to have infiltrated almost every country on Earth, to some of the most remote locations. Following are some of the most recent developments in the ongoing pandemic, which have hit the United States and Brazil with great difficulty.

The Americas are still the worst

The US is still ranked first in terms of the number of COVID-19 cases. The country has 4.17 million cases with more than 146,000 people lost their lives due to illness so far, according to Johns Hopkins University.

Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump blamed the national surge in racial justice protests, travelers from Mexico and young bar visitors.

The second most affected country, both in the world and in America, Brazil reported on Sunday 1,211 more deaths from coronavirus during the last 24 hours, according to its Ministry of Health.

Brazil recorded a death toll of 86,449 with the latest death, the ministry said in a statement.

The number of infections also jumped to more than 2.39 million with 51,147 new cases during the day, he added. The country has registered more than 1.61 million recoveries so far.

With a population of more than 211 million, Brazil is seen as the center of distribution in Latin America.

Asia continues to struggle, even in North Korea

On the continent where it was first discovered, coronavirus continues to spread. North Korea, which is often referred to as the real “ascetic kingdom” because of its minimal relations with the outside world, has also taken a fair share of the virus.

The country on Sunday registered the first suspected case of corona virus, according to the Korea Central News Agency (KCNA). North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un also declared a state of emergency and lockdown in a border city after a patient suspected of being infected with the virus returned from South Korea after being reported illegally crossing the border.

According to KCNA, infected patients were observed.

“Apart from the intensive anti-epidemic prevention measures taken in all fields throughout the country and the strict closure of all channels over the past six months, a critical development has taken place where a virulent virus is said to have entered the country,” North Korean Leader Kim Jong- un said during an emergency meeting.

Kim also noted that maximum measures against the pandemic would be implemented throughout the country.

Meanwhile, China continues to see newly confirmed cases in the northwestern region of Xinjiang, with 18 new infections reported.

China has reported a total of 83,729 cases of COVID-19, with 4,634 deaths.

South Korea has also reported 59 new COVID-19 cases confirmed after a double increase in local transmission and imported infections.

Figures by the South Korea Disease Control and Prevention Center on Thursday brought the national caseload to 13,938, including 297 deaths.

On the Indian subcontinent, the situation also does not look positive. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday that the virus was spreading rapidly in parts of India and that the public must remain very vigilant, when the number of infections in India is approaching 140,000. India’s Ministry of Health reported 48,661 new infections and 705 deaths on Saturday.

With a total of 138,522 coronavirus infections, India, a country with 1.3 billion people, is ranked third among the countries most severely affected by the virus after the US and Brazil.

The situation has worsened in Australia

Australia reached a grim milestone on Sunday, recording the highest number of daily deaths from the corona virus, as authorities in the state of Victoria are battling a number of infection groups and intensifying efforts to track their contacts.

Victoria’s leader, Daniel Andrews, told a media briefing that the country had reported 10 COVID-19 deaths in the past 24 hours, the highest casualties of the Australian daily.

Australia has avoided the severe coronavirus outbreaks seen in several countries, with more than 14,400 recorded cases and 155 deaths.

Europe is still suffering

This virus continues to attack violently in Europe, which was once the most severe continent. The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Germany increased by 305 to 205,269, data from the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) for infectious diseases showed on Sunday. The reported death toll has not changed by 9,118, calculations show.

France also noted an increasing number of prominent cases. French health authorities made the COVID-19 test available free without a prescription because they closely monitored the uptick in infections after the removal of the locking action.

France has recorded 30,192 deaths attributed to coronavirus, among a total of 180,528 cases of the disease, according to statistics published on Friday.

The number of new daily infections rose above 1,000 for the second day – around their daily rate when the locking action was reduced in May, after two months of confinement.

Meanwhile, in an unexpected development, good news came from Russia with 5,765 new corona virus cases and 77 deaths reported, a sharp decline from 146 deaths reported the day before.

The national infection count has risen to 812,485, the Russian coronavirus crisis response center said. The number of victims of COVID-19 now reaches 13,269, while 600,250 people have recovered.

South Africa leads the continent in some cases

Confirmed coronavirus cases in South Africa reach nearly 400,000 because the country reports a high 572 deaths every day.

South Africa is now one of the top five countries in the world in terms of reported cases of the virus, and that makes up more than half of cases on the African continent with 394,948. Death is at 5,940.

The struggle in the most developed countries in Africa is an alarming sign for other African countries with far fewer resources because the spread of infection is accelerating.

Since it first appeared in China last December, coronavirus has spread to at least 188 countries and regions. The US, Brazil, India and Russia are currently the hardest hit countries in the world.

The pandemic has killed more than 644,500 people worldwide, with more than 16 million confirmed cases, according to figures compiled by Johns Hopkins University. More than 9.26 million have recovered from this disease.

How Grocery Bills Skyrocket Even When Food Becomes Scarcer – NBC Boston | Instant News

This is what shopping looks like at the time of Coronavirus.

For one, that’s more difficult to do, considering social distance.

Our household has completely changed. We are all more at home. Many restaurants are closed, even limiting takeout or delivery options. Campus children and other relatives might add household numbers.

“There is no reason for me to be in the store the next few weeks, other than boredom,” said Simma Levine, in her 50s and a producer for a non-profit organization in New York. To prepare for the closure of the city, Levine and her family moved to their Connecticut weekend place, where they spent, cooked and ate more.

Empty shelves are increasingly common. Early in the morning, Gayle Glick, 62, said her husband gave a report on what was available in the shop. “I can make a special request,” said Glick, a retiree in Toledo, Ohio. “Sometimes I get the stuff, sometimes I don’t.”

Self, the lender who built credit, asked 1,340 Americans about shopping for groceries and their eating habits survey fielded April 10-14.

Not surprisingly, only more than two-thirds of those surveyed said they were spend more on weekly shopping, according to Self.

The average household spends an additional $ 69 a week on food, because the average grocery shopping rises to $ 155 per week. That is an 80% increase for food at home when compared to the Bureau of Labor Statistics calculations from 2018 for that category. Some people even spend more: Just under a quarter say they spend between $ 100 and $ 200 extra every week.

The extra money is used for a lot of homemade food. About a third of survey respondents said they learned to cook or experiment in the kitchen.

Because her children are not attending school, Nadia Malik, 36, a personal finance blogger in Dallas, said saving snacks, juice boxes, and junk food is very important. Lunch does not produce much, because children eat breakfast late at night and dinner early.

Slim cuisine

Malik is one of the few who managed to cut costs, going to the store only to buy milk, eggs and fresh products. “I carried out wholesale transportation four weeks ago,” he said. “I stretch whatever I have at home and replace the meat with lentils – and surprisingly, the kids love it.” Overall, he said he cut food costs by around 35%.

About 1 in 4 survey respondents said they rationed food, both to save money and avoid repeated trips to the store. “I fluctuate between eating less for food rations and reducing food costs, overeating because of boredom and self-medication because of stress, anxiety and depression due to a pandemic,” said a commentator on social media who asked not to be identified.

Some give up on junk food.

“My husband brings home junk food all the time, before and during quarantine,” Glick said. He tried to avoid the so-called Quarantine 15 – Refers to the number of pounds used during locking – and so far he has succeeded.
