    COVID-19 Can you give me an update from where you are in the world... 1. What country you are in 2. What supplies the shops have run out of 3. What restrictions you've currently got there to help contain covid-19 4.Do you/anyone you know have the virus and if so are you/they OK?
    Fo us it's 1.Australia of course 2.Shops are out of toilet paper, tissues, paper towel, hand sanitiser, flour, rice, sugar, pasta, chicken, limited meat, canned goods and sanitary supplies. Hospitals are short on test kits for covid-19 3. School are still open but there are no gatherings over 100 people indoors or 500 outdoors, international travel is banned and any Aussies returning home have to self isolate for 14 days 4.thankfully no.

      Hey Ann I have no idea if you are going to read this, but here we go :)
      1. Denmark, specifically in the Zealand region, copenhagen (the capital) is 15 minutes away on the train from where I live.
      2. when coronavirus was first announced basically all the toilet paper, hand sanitiser, chicken, milk, eggs, rice, canned goods, sanitary supplies and all the veggies were gone. It has calmed down quite a bit and you almost see nobody at the grocery stores anymore. In the beginning people even stole hand sanitiser from the hospitals. This was very controversial and people were incredibly angry. I also think there is a shortage of test kits for covid-19, limiting the amount of people they can test. We also don't have medical masks anymore, but I have only seen one person in the past month wearing one haha.
      3. In Denmark we did a big lockdown, so no school, no work (people may work at home). Public transportation is still running and mosts stores are open (not including bars or cafes, and some clothing stores). But I think this is about to change. Everyone is supposed to stay home but everyone goes out anyways. At the beach you see children running around and playing in the sun, people out tanning, taking walks with strollers. You see people out constantly, most people in Denmark take this as a type of vacation instead of something to be careful about, it's a bit sad haha. They have just started giving out tickets to people, but that is quite a recent development and I think the police will start 'stepping up' quite a bit. Also you are not allowed to be in a room with more than 10 people at once. In the stores they don't receive cash either anymore and there is hand sanitiser next to all cash registers.
      4. Not that I know of, however, my mother is incredibly paranoid. She is originally from Italy, where all of our family is, and she is just incredibly worried, especially for my grandmother. She has every disease in the book (high blood pressure, too much cholesterol, high blood sugar, depression ect. She has also had skin cancer and cancer in one of her lungs, where they cut 1/3 of it away), and if she gets Covid - 19 she will die immediately. The three zones that have been affected the most are the richest ones, I live in one of the communes in these zones. Because they are so rich, it's easy for them go travelling and a lot of people went to austria and such for vacation, soooo yeah... I think most of them came from the people traveling, sadly students from my old gymnasium (high school?) have been affected and a lot of them are in quarantine because they went travelling with the school. It's sad to see people my age (16-18) be affected in this way.
      Currently 1,255 people in Denmark have been infected (although this is difficult to say, since we haven't tested 'gray patients', so there could be more) where 37 of them are in critical condition.
      9 people have died.
      1 person has fully recovered :)
      So yeah... hope it helps. A lot of stuff has happened here, even though we are so small, I apologise for the long comment, and I wish you the best, I have been watching your channel since 2014 so I really love and appreciate what you do! I wish you the best, love xoxo

      1. Germany
      2. Toilet paper, Sanitizer, flour and noodles
      3.Schools are closed. Also Bars, Restaurants and every shop not providing food or medicine
      4. yes and they are NOT o.k.
      And we have already restrictions to go outside that could become a full ban on going out.
      I‘m scared.
      I like your channel and it cheers me up to see something else than catastrophic news. Thank you for your good content.
      You and your Husband are very likable. I wish the best for you and your family.🌻

      1.Hong Kong. 2.The people was kinda crazy and stocking up toilet paper in Jan/Feb but it's alright now. 3.The number of confirmed cases was quite stable in these few months as many of us went through SARS in 2003 and we are very serious about self-protection as the government isn't doing much to protect us, so we have been wearing masks etc. ever since Jan. The gov has issued a 14-day restricted quarantine for anyone who's coming from other places around the world except China, Taiwan, and Macau. (But some of the stupid students who came back overseas cut their waistband and went outside LOL very selfish of them). 4. thankfully no.

    1. N. Ireland (UK) 2. Toilet Paper, pasta, soap/anti bacterial wipes etc. 3. social distancing, essential trips only, basically to self isolate where possible 4. My mum has it though she has not been tested (there are no tests available yet) doctor is 98% certain.Mum is feeling lousy but OK for now. Worried about dad who doesn't do well with chest infections and has other health issues. COMMENTS ABOUT VIDEO: What an amazing, informative and educational video with proper journalism. Personally I don't care about the method of producing videos (content farms) the only thing I care about is integrity. If you show me how to make something, it better work. This channel is full of integrity and I enjoy watching your content.

    Fraud is perfectly fine if you're selling clicks. (It really shouldn't be -- the makers of the video being the company it should be possible to sue them for fraud. Advertise on them first though so you have grounds to sue.)

    Use sparkling water to lift red wine out of carpet. Because it's water, it helps with the stickiness of the wine, and somehow the carbonation helps dilute and lift out the wine.
    NEVER RUB THE CARPET. The cloth meant to absorb the liquid, press it into the carpet. Be sure to wring out the liquid into the sink. Repeat applying more sparkling water, then absorbing the liquid into the cloth by pressing it into the carpet. May need to use multiple clean towels, and possible a little diluted soap near the end.

A friend who was very old and sick (lung issues) died due to covid-19.

    When you make a "cup cake" in the microwave using baking powder there are some pointers to get it right:
    1) use a recipe with an amount that sounds plausible
    2) time shouldn't be too short (maybe more than 1 minute!) but also in stages
    3) twice the amount as in the recipe makes a tower - iI did it and it tasted good :)
    4) you might make a mess in the microwave
    5) solids should be added after making the cake

    Your "moral dilemma" is only relevant because you are a person with a face and seem directly answerable for your content. These fake hacks and how-to videos never feature a face with a name so there is less assumption and expectation of the content having to answer for itself. It's probably splitting hairs but you drive your content partly through personality, something they don't have access to. Though you might deal in similar ideas, the channels are quite different animals.

    Actually, I do use the popcorn bowl thing quite often. You're not supposed to pass it around though, it just sits on a table with other snacks and drink cups. We use it on our game nights. You're right about scissors thing, they are impossible to open with bare hands. You may open it by biting the package as well, and since that part gets peeled and removed it is semi-hygienic.
