Netflix's Pandemic is timely released as coronavirus spreads

- New Netflix docu-series "Pandemic" has been on the 21st of January
- Pandemic focuses on doctors who are treating epidemics, whether in a hospital in direct contact with the victims or in a lab, trying to create a vaccine
- Right as Netflix quietly released Pandemic, coronavirus is spreading worldwide. It presumably started in the city of Wuhan and came from the consumption of infected bats in Chinese exotic food markets
- So far, Chinese authorities have acknowledged 1,287 infected and 41 deaths in China (though epidemics experts believe that at least 10,000 persons are infected in the city of Wuhan alone). Thailand has reported 4 cases, France 3 cases, USA 2, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam and Singapore 1
- Apparently Chinese authorities spent the first 2 weeks of the outbreak dissemating the new virus from its population and the entire world, cracking down on journalists and citizens who shared the news, contributing to the spread of the virus
- China has locked down over 36 million people as of now and Wuhan has been completely quarantined with flights and other transports closed
- Horrifying bat soup videos are going viral as we're talking
- coronavirus symptoms are: runny nose, headache, cough, sore throat, fever and a general feeling of being unwell (basically flu symptoms or flu-like condition smh).
- No vaccine for this virus yet

After flopping with his debut album LP1, Liam Payne sets his sights on an acting career

After receiving scathing album reviews, debuting at no. 111 on the Billboard 200 with 9,500 units in sales and failing to chart with any of his new singles, Liam Payne has his sights set on acting. A source says, “Liam is currently in LA having meetings with his acting reps about a career in acting. It’s no secret he wants to try his hand on the big screen like Harry Styles did with Dunkirk – the right opportunity just needs to come along.”

Liam previously mentioned in an interview that he had auditioned for Steven Spielberg’s remake of West Side Story. However despite making it through to the final five actors for the unknown part, he didn’t get the role. No no no no.

In other related news, Liam tells British Vogue that he misses his son Bear a lot when on the road during a video segment of In The Bag. “If I could fit one person in my bag, it would have to be my son,” says the “Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah” singer and absentee father. “It’s hard being out on the road and missing him, working away as much as I do.”

“His mum’s super understanding with me, she takes great care of him. I always know he’s really well looked after. It’s just the little moments you miss out on sometimes that I’d love to be there for more,” he added.

Reporter quits her job live thinking she won the lotto, she didn’t

A video of Spanish TV reporter Natalia Escudero screaming live into the cameras, saying "I'm not coming to work tomorrow!" as her name was announced as a winner of the Spanish lottery, the biggest lottery in the world in terms of total prize money offered has gone viral.

But it came to an end when it turned out she had actually only won €5,000.00 out of the total prize of €2.24 billion, since Spain's lotto doesn't award large individual quantities.
