5 interesting coronavirus reads for March 30th.

You can be forgiven for living in the Perth coronavirus bubble, especially considering most are living the ISO life, that is why we thought we’d bring you regular interesting coronavirus reads to get you across what else is happening in the world of coronavirus.

We’re almost there guys, we’re almost through with March.

But, things are not slowing down and today was no exception.

Here are the top five must-read/watch pieces of news from around the world.

1) Trump flip flops.No way, right?

He’s usually so clear and consistent.

But old Trumpy has turned the heat on and off and then on again for COVID-19. Just a week ago he was saying he was about to open up the economy and today?

Well, today he says he probably won’t do that. You know, to make things “less bad”.

His main message? Young people are not invulnerable and home remedies are NOT A THING.

Note: scroll up for Noah’s video shot a couple days after this interview, trying to follow Italy’s example and sing from his NYC apartment.

Yeah. Not the same man.

4) China is getting better… sorta
