    Default Michael related Corona death

    It appears Manu Dibango (the Cameroonian singer Michael sampled a riff from in WBSS) died today from Corona:
    https://youtu.be/o0CeFX6E2yI

    I didn't even know Michael's riff had been sampled. By the looks of it Michael was sued as late as in February 2009 (!!!) and decided to settle out of court.

    He was 86.
    Got to find a way somehow,
    nothing's gonna stop me now,
    got to find a way somehow,
    even though you're gone.
    Things don't seem as bad as they did
    yesterday,
    every minute I get stronger,
    somehow someway.

    Default Michael Jackson Estate Donates $300,000 to Coronavirus Relief Efforts

    The Michael Jackson Estate today announced that it is donating $300,000 to coronavirus response efforts to help three communities that have been severely impacted by the Covid 19 virus. Broadway Cares, Three Square Food Bank (Southern Nevada’s largest hunger-relief organization) and MusicCares will each receive a $100,000 donation.

    “This virus strikes at the heart of the communities we are close to,” said John Branca and John McClain, co-executors of the Estate of Michael Jackson.

    “We learned today that the legendary Manu Dibango (a key influence on Jackson’s hit ‘Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’) passed away from the virus.

    Other performers and support staff in music and on Broadway are sick or have been left without work and are facing an uncertain future. And in Las Vegas, which has been so welcoming to Michael Jackson, the entire city has been shut down leaving thousands of workers and their families devastated and without an income.

    “Michael’s spirit of generosity and helping others during his lifetime is legendary. These donations are inspired by him,” they concluded.

    In New York, the Estate is answering the challenge made by more than 20 Broadway producers who are matching up to $1 million in donations, doubling the impact of contributions to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS’ COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Fund. Jackson loved attending Broadway performances and the Estate and its partner, Lia Vollack Productions, continue to look forward to welcoming audiences to MJ the Musical later this year.

    “With every passing day that theaters remain dark, entertainment and performing arts professionals face unprecedented and immediate challenges,” said Tom Viola, executive director Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

    “This incredibly generous donation from the Michael Jackson Estate will help ensure those onstage, backstage and behind the scenes get lifesaving health care, emergency financial assistance and counseling during and after this crisis.”

    In Las Vegas, the Estate’s donation will provide 300,000 meals to the needy, and help to maintain Three Square Food Bank’s supplies, the largest foodbank in Southern Nevada. Since opening in February 2013, Michael Jackson ONE, produced by Cirque du Soleil and the Estate of Michael Jackson, has been one of the most popular shows in Vegas.

    “Before the pandemic, 1 in 8 Southern Nevadans lived in a food-insecure household and that number will increase exponentially with the displacement of thousands of workers in our community.

    Thank you to the Estate of Michael Jackson for stepping up to help children, families, veterans and senior citizens who may need help now more than ever,” Michelle Beck, Chief Development Officer.

    The Recording Academy and MusiCares will support the music makers who Michael Jackson worked with and loved in a time where the industry is being challenged at every level from the virus.

    Default Prince Charles tests positive for coronavirus; unclear if Queen Elizabeth II has been tested

    LONDON — Prince Charles, the heir to the British throne, 71, has tested positive for coronavirus after "displaying mild symptoms," Clarence House, his official royal residence, said in a statement Wednesday.

    "The Prince of Wales has tested positive for coronavirus," the statement said, noting aside from the mild symptoms he "otherwise remains in good health and has been working from home throughout the last few days as usual."

    The Prince of Wales is self-isolating at a royal estate in Scotland, and his wife Camilla, 72, has tested negative for the virus. It was not immediately clear whether Charles' mother, Queen Elizabeth II or her husband Prince Philip have been tested.

    Britain's 93-year-old monarch canceled a number of events "as a sensible precaution" due to the outbreak but as late as last week she was still holding "audiences" with members of the public.

    Buckingham Palace confirmed to USA TODAY that Britain's monarch last came into contact with Prince Charles on March 12. Medical researchers have not yet determined for how long someone infected with coronavirus is contagious.

    "Her Majesty The Queen remains in good health," the palace said in a statement to USA TODAY Wednesday. "The Queen last saw the Prince of Wales briefly after the investiture on the morning of the 12th March and is following all the appropriate advice with regard to her welfare.”

    Prince Philip, 98, is with the queen at Windsor Castle.

    Charles was photographed with other members of the royal family on March 9 at the queen's annual Commonwealth Day service in Westminster Abbey.

    Sharp-eyed Twitter users noticed Charles, along with his youngest son Prince Harry, adopted alternatives to shaking hands at the event.

    The Prince of Wales, who's known for his interest in Eastern religions and philosophy, was spotted greeting people with the Indian "namaste" greeting, which includes a slight bow with hands pressed together, palms touching and fingers pointing upwards.
    A few days later, Charles was also out and about on March 12, when he attended a dinner for Australian bushfire relief and recovery effort in London.

    The statement from Clarance House announcing Prince Charles' positive test results noted: “It is not possible to ascertain from whom the Prince caught the virus owing to the high number of engagements he carried out in his public role during recent weeks.”
    Those most at danger of severe complications from the virus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, include adults 65 and older.

    On March 19, Queen Elizabeth sent a message via her press office broadly addressing the coronavirus pandemic: "As Philip and I arrive at Windsor today, we know that many individuals and families across the United Kingdom, and around the world, are entering a period of great concern and uncertainty.

    "We are all being advised to change our normal routines and regular patterns of life for the greater good of the communities we live in and, in particular, to protect the most vulnerable within them."

    Default Can the Coronavirus Cause Loss of Smell and Taste?

    Can the Coronavirus Cause Loss of Smell and Taste?

    According to various global reports, COVID-19 patients are experiencing a notable loss of smell or taste. The British Association of Otorhinolaryngology "In Germany, it is reported that more than 2 in 3 confirmed cases have
    anosmia,"

    The British Association of Otorhinolaryngology statement continues. "In South Korea...30% of patients testing positive have had anosmia as their major presenting symptom in otherwise mild cases." Some people may be losing their sense of smell from the coronavirus but not experiencing other symptoms.

    The American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery People who experience loss of these sensations should quarantine and call ahead before visiting a doctor.
