Twitter is banning all posts as well as comments causing panic and encouraging conspiracy theorists to attack 5G masts over allegations it's behind the Coronavirus outbreak.

The move to cut down on the amount of misinformation and 'unverified claims' comes after a series of debates and controversies linking the 5G network and COVID-19. 

"We have broadened our guidance on unverified claims that incite people to engage in harmful activity, could lead to the destruction or damage of critical 5G infrastructure, or could lead to widespread panic, social unrest, or large-scale disorder," the Twitter safety team said on Wednesday.

Over the Easter weekend, 20 incidents were recorded, including a suspected arson attack on a mast in east London as well as one serving Birmingham's Nightingale Hospital.

In a blog post, Twitter said it was refining its policy to deal with the latest incidents.

It will remove "unverified claims" that could lead to the destruction or damage of critical infrastructure, "widespread panic, social unrest, or large-scale disorder." 

These include tweets that falsely tell people food is running out or that 5G wireless causes coronavirus, the San Francisco firm said.




Juliet Ibrahim has written an open letter to Iceberg Slim to ask him to stop trying to get her attention after they broke up due to infidelity on his part.

Iceberg has admitted that he cheated on Juliet Ibrahim. He keeps talking about their past relationship and recently sang about cheating on his ex.

This was the height for Juliet and she initially took to Instagrm to sub him, writing: "My mood when I realized that your only claim to fame was dating me."

In a new post shared today, Juliet decided to be direct and she called Iceberg's name while addressing the cover to a song he did about cheating.

Juliet revealed he's been sending her emails but it goes to the junk mail. She warned him to stop harrassing her and promised this would be the last time she would be discussing him or giving him her attention.

She wrote in her warning to him:

To all my loyal fans and friends, I am only addressing this now because I am fed up of the constant dragging of my name, it has to stop. Enough is enough. -

Iceberg Slim, 
Our relationship ended 2 years ago as a result of your wayward opportunistic and unfaithful nature. Somehow, you still find ways to publicly get my attention through several means. I made it clear to you when I left you that I have no hard feelings against you and I wish you well as we both move on with our lives, yet even though I've blocked you from contacting me on various platforms, you still find ways to reach out or refer to me in posts on your social media pages. 

Your emails still come through in my Junk mail and I have no idea why you would expect a response when I made it clear to you that I want nothing to do with you. 

You are forgiven, please let me be after this public announcement and move on with your life just like I have. 
Refrain from harrassing my life with your narcissistic need for validation.

Put a halt to all the Emails pleading for my presence to discuss the past and do seek a professional therapist to help you overcome the trauma you're currently experiencing. 

FYI, Singing cover songs about cheating and exes is NOT a form of therapy. 

Goodluck in all your endeavours. This is the last time I will answer to any of your posts about me or senseless cover songs directed at me on your social media pages, shebi na cheat you cheat you no kill pesin? Can you now take a bow and exit the stage? This is all stale and I don’t need no more of your negativity and toxicity in, nor around my life now.

I choose not to be friends with you for my own sanity and personal reasons so please do refrain from contacting me.

Thank you.

The Indonesian government will be banning all domestic and international air, land and sea travel with some exceptions, starting from Friday April 24, to prevent a further spread of the Coronavirus.

Railway services will be closed until June 15, public land transportations other than railway won’t operate until May 31. Air travels and sea transportations are banned until June 1 and June 8, respectively.

Adita Irawati, a spokesperson for the Transportation Ministry confirmed this in a televised address on Thursday April 23. She also revealed that the government has banned the traditional annual exodus for Muslim holidays locally known as mudik (when people return to their hometown to celebrate Idul Fitri or the day after Ramadan). 

Irawati said; 

“Sea, air, land and railway transportations are temporarily banned from entering or leaving areas where the large-scale social restrictions [PSBB] apply, the red zones of Covid-19 outbreak, Greater Jakarta and other affected areas. 
“Transportations of logistics, basic commodities, and medical supplies, as well as fire trucks, ambulances and law enforcement vehicles are exempt from this ban.
“The regulation comes into force at 00.00 Indonesian western time on Friday.
“Starting tonight, all related agencies will move to enforce the regulation, whose main purposes are to ensure our safety and contain the spread of the Covid-19 disease across Indonesia.” 

With all 34 provinces being affected by the outbreak, the travel restrictions basically apply nationwide. The latest measure will not apply to emergency, diplomatic or cargo transport. 

Other exceptions would include flights to repatriate Indonesian and foreign citizens, as well as travel by state officials, diplomatic staff and representatives of international organisations. 

As of Thursday, Indonesia had 7,775 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 647 deaths.


The first human trial in Europe of a coronavirus vaccine has begun in Oxford.

Two volunteers were injected out of more than 800 people recruited for the study.

Elisa Granato (pictured above), a scientist, was the first volunteer to be injected and she said she volunteered because she wanted to try to support the scientific process.

Half of those who volunteered will receive the Covid-19 vaccine, and half a control vaccine which protects against meningitis but not coronavirus.

The design of the trial means volunteers will not know which vaccine they are getting, though doctors will.

The vaccine was developed in under three months by a team at Oxford University. 

Sarah Gilbert, professor of vaccinology at the Jenner Institute, led the pre-clinical research.

"Personally I have a high degree of confidence in this vaccine," she said.

"Of course, we have to test it and get data from humans. We have to demonstrate it actually works and stops people getting infected with coronavirus before using the vaccine in the wider population," she added.

First patients injected as UK begins Coronavirus vaccine trial

The Coronavirus vaccine is made from a weakened version of a common cold virus (known as an adenovirus) from chimpanzees that has been modified so it cannot grow in humans, according to BBC.

The Oxford team has already developed a vaccine against Mers, another type of coronavirus, using the same approach - and that had promising results in clinical trials.

The only way the Oxford team will know if the Covid-19 vaccine works is by comparing the number of people who get infected with coronavirus in the coming months from the two arms of the trial.

That could be a problem if cases fall rapidly in the UK, because there may not be enough data.

Prof Andrew Pollard, director of the Oxford Vaccine Group, who is leading the trial, said: "We're chasing the end of this current epidemic wave. If we don't catch that, we won't be able to tell whether the vaccine works in the next few months. But we do expect that there will be more cases in the future because this virus hasn't gone away."

The vaccine researchers are prioritising the recruitment of local healthcare workers into the trial as they are more likely than others to be exposed to the virus.

A larger trial, of about 5,000 volunteers, will start in the coming months and will have no age limit.

The Oxford team is also considering a vaccine trial in Africa, possibly in Kenya, where the rates of transmission are growing from a lower base.

The trial volunteers will be carefully monitored in the coming months. They have been told that some may get a sore arm, headaches or fevers in the first couple of days after vaccination.

They are also told there is a theoretical risk that the virus could induce a serious reaction to coronavirus, which arose in some early Sars animal vaccine studies.

But the Oxford team says its data suggests the risk of the vaccine producing an enhanced disease is minimal.

Another team at Imperial College London hopes to begin human trials of its coronavirus vaccine in June.

The Oxford and Imperial teams have received more than £40m of government funding.

Social media users are reacting to a viral video of a man giving his son multiple slaps after the boy, failed to sit for his Maths and English exams, failed other courses but got a distinction in Music despite the father paying $21,000 as tuition fees in the American International School of Lusaka, Zambia.

In the video which was probably recorded in 2018 and recently surfaced, the angry father is seen beating the boy while scolding him.
''I told you this is a scar on your entire life, do you know the reputation this gives you? You can't read? You are a big boy you can't read?' The father said.

A woman was recording the episode while begging the father to stop beating the boy, but the man faced her and said ''How can you say I should stop beating him, you know what this means..''

After answering the said woman, he then slapped the boy again and said ''You can't read, don't talk to me again' That's the result you bring to this house? Look at the result you brought? You idiot!

According to new reports, Police in Zambia summoned the father identified as George Bester, for ''questionning'' on April 20 2020, after the video went viral online.

Chris and Cristina Cuomo's 14-year-old son, Mario is battling COVID-19, making him the third member of the family to deal with the coronavirus.

Mario's diagnosis comes just days after his parents recovered from COVID-19. 

The CNN anchor ended weeks in isolation on Monday after he was cleared by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. His wife, Cristina Cuomo, also contracted the virus but has been cleared.

Unfortunately, one of their three children got the virus too and Cristina, 50, revealed she's doing everything she can to take care of their son, Mario, as he sheds the virus.

"After 10 days of ups and downs, feeling good one-day and terrible the next, I am now working hard to get my son, Mario, through the virus. My heart hurts more than my head over his infection," Cristina Cuomo shared on Instagram.

She added that the virus "does not discriminate."

Cuomo, who is CEO of wellness magazine The Purist, said she kept a diary of the past week, including "remedies and things that I did to stay sane through it all."

"While kids are more resilient, they can suffer same severity of symptoms," Cuomo said. "I’m applying a modified version of my remedies for his protocol with a focus on lots of vitamins. Since his sense of smell and taste have disappeared, I am feeding him healthy foods that I normally can’t get him to touch."




Chris Cuomo, who is the brother of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, has been candid about what it has been like to live with COVID-19. He continued to do his nightly show from his basement while battling the virus.

US President, Donald Trump, has defended the thousands of protesters that have taken to the cities in the US to protest against the Coronavirus lockdown that has changed their way of life and shut down their means of livelihood.


Even though over 40,000 people in the US have died from Coronavirus, Trump says some of the governors' stay at home orders went too far, suggesting people ''have cabin fever and just want their lives back'

Some protesters waved Nazi flags after gathering in the state capitals of Michigan, Minnesota and Virginia last week. Trump then tweeted 'LIBERATE' and then included one of those three states in his tweet raising concerns that Trump might be fueling violent actions but Trump has now denied those assertions.


Trump said those protesting, including people in Olympia, Washington, Virginia and Michigan on Sunday 'love our country'


 

With more protests planned, Trump refrained from telling the demonstrators, many of whom have been wearing Trump clothing/merchandise, to stay home.  
'No, I am not. I've never seen so many American flags,' Trump said.'They've got cabin fever,'  'These people love our country. They want to get back to work.'
'And when the virus passes, I hope we're going to be sitting next to each other at baseball games, football games, basketball games, ice hockey games,'
'I hope we're going to be sitting next to each other. The Masters is going to have 100,000 people, not 25 watching the course.'  Trump said.
