Danaye's Daily Dose for November 18th, 2020
773 more COVID cases were discovered in Alberta yesterday and Dr. Hinshaw has asked police to start reinforcing the mask bylaws and gathering restrictions. Schools in the city have over 10,000 staff and students currently in isolation with Nelson Mandela High having to send home all Grade 10 and 11 students for two weeks because multiple students have the virus and there isn’t enough staff. A few other provinces will be having extended Christmas Breaks but it doesn’t sound like Alberta has that in the plans just yet.
Some positive virus news- Influenza is down BIG time in the province. Thanks to our heightened health measures and a TON of people in the province already getting their flu shot, only 17 people have been recorded to have the flu so far, compared to 700 at this time last year.
The Sexiest Man Alive has been announced: MICHAEL B. JORDAN first he won over our hearts, first appearing as Hattie’s boyfriend Alex on Parenthood for three seasons, then he won over our EYES in Apollo and then Black Panther. He says the women in his family are going to be the MOST excited about this honour, adding that his grandmother used to collect the Sexiest Man Alive edition of People.
Jordan is more than just insanely good looks: His film company, Outlier Society Productions, was the first to adopt an inclusion rider, which makes it mandatory that filmmakers hire a diverse cast and crew. He’s also bee super vocal in the Black Lives Movement and this year's election.
A new study has found that mouthwash is able to kill Covid 19 within 30 seconds. Now, this is a lab only study and has to be reviewed by a whole ton of experts, but major investigations are under way to see if over the counter mouthwash can reduce the levels of COVID in a person’s saliva. A lot of doctors are rushing out to warn not to put too much faith into this and believe this will be our saviour. But hey, even if it takes a while to prove, it couldn’t hurt! Plus your mask breath will be that much more pleasant! The ingredient you’re wanting to look for if you’re rushing out to the store is cetyl-pyridinium chloride. MORE
Twitter rolled out a new feature yesterday and I’m not sure it’s something anyone asked for. It’s called Fleets and it’s basically Stories, following what Instagram has been doing for 37 years and what Snap Chat has been doing for 74. ALL THIS BUT WE STILL CAN’T EDIT TWEETS?!?!
That thing you didn’t Tweet but wanted to but didn’t but got so close but then were like nah.— Twitter (@Twitter) November 17, 2020
