I thought a mask was a mask but after reading this if you are over 60 then it should be a three-layer mask! Who knew that? I haven’t checked this on the World Health Organisation site as I just wanted to make the point about so much information that is piled on all social media. You never know what is true, what is a fact as even if the writer is a newspaper they have a way of writing it so that you think it is a fact but it is not. So please look on the government sites or W.H.O. if you want the true information about something.
The scams that are spreading very rapidly to do with coronavirus are getting clever and because the government is trying out an app on The Isle Of White they are also using this to trick you.
Just remember no one will ask for your name, address, date of birth, bank account number or any personal information so do not tell anyone.
Always be careful how you are filling in some details on social media, for example, questions about you as these can be used to get your question correct when you go through a log-in process. I also still think it is best not to have your name in your email address, why help the conman at all!
I see the news is full about missing Madeline again, it always makes me feel so sad for the many other missing children that we never hear about. According to statistics from Missing Kids UK, a child goes missing in the UK every three minutes! That is an awful figure and I think more should be done to help locate these vulnerable children.
Missing Kids UK states that an estimated 306,000 reports of missing people are made to British police every year – the majority of which are children and young people under the age of 18. The thought of what these many parents are going through is unimaginable with so many never getting closure and never knowing where or if they are alive.
At the beginning and end of each news broadcast on the TV, they should show a picture of the missing child with any information they have, at least then there is a piece of hope that they might be recognised.
All the bloggers and influencers could put a missing child on their blogs as these are read all over the world. Two very simple things that would get these children looked for, lets see what we can do for the many mothers and fathers who cry tears of love everyday.
