Bolsonaro: We finally got a real culture secretary.

Literally the next day:
Yeah, this was literally a shame, I never expected to hear such words from a culture secretary.

For some reason here at Brazil's north, the electricity bills here are one of the most expensive of the whole country, i gotta pay 400 BRL per month just for that (100 dollars), and they don't stop rising regardless where you are in Brazil, same thing about the fuel, it doesn't stop rising, meat is now more expensive (at least i'm don't need it to survive) and the president wants to privatize more companies (like the mails agency)

School delayed for 2 whole weeks because of the disease, adding to a total of 3 weeks in this term.
God, just think of the schedule this year, for either to teaching speed and mental preparation for future public exams.

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why. And remember, Yoshi's are tools to be used and discarded.

A case of the virus was detected hours ago in the Vancouver area.

As a matter of fact, the world is panicking over a virus that is actually less threatening than flu. But we've been used to flu since ages so it doesn't dominate the headlines as much.

Keep in mind that Spanish flu killed about as many people as World War II.

And to top it off, the government deliberately conceal it from the public media before being harshly criticized its censorships. While some people in my city who went to the extreme, are losing their sanity and disregard their own moral value.

Taking an example from a shop in Hong Kong that import face mask from Thailand. They are supposed to distribute face mask to doctors working on the front line. People are criticizing the shop for not selling face mask to them, even though the shop publicly stated their prioritisation in the social media platform.

You see, people are losing their mind for a mere virus that is less threatening than the SARs in 2002-2003. Not to mention that youngsters have been taken vaccines in their school years ago.
Edit: School is suspended for the entirety of February.
