Brazil coronavirus death toll is 111

A growing number of Latin American nations are confirming Covid-19 infections and Covid-19 deaths. Brazil's total coronavirus death toll is 111.

Autumn is arriving in the southern hemisphere. Brazil will reduce efforts to fight environmental crimes during the coronavirus outbreak. One of the risks is that reduced protection could lead to a surge in deforestation. The coronavirus Covid-19 outbreak has resulted in fewer enforcement personnel working in the environmental protection field.

Brazil has a developing free-market economy. It is the 9th largest in the world by nominal Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Brazil's 2019 nominal GDP was R$6.826 trillion or US$1.868 trillion. The country has an estimated US$21.8 trillion worth of natural resources which includes vast amounts of gold, uranium, iron, and timber.

Belgium coronavirus death toll is 289

In Belgium, police are taking a tough approach to policing the lockdown. Anyone found hanging around on the streets is fined. People need a good reason to be outside, such as: shopping for groceries, medicine or doing other essential tasks. Travelers are often checked for their documents.

Belgium became a country on October 4, 1830. The name Belgium dates back to the period when Celtics and Romans inhabited most of Europe. Those who inhabited Belgium, North Western France and Rhine land of Germany by then were known as Belgae. During this time, the Romans under the leadership of Julius Caesar were on a conquest to colonize Gaul (part of that region is present-day Belgium).

Netherlands coronavirus death toll is 434

The Coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic has brought demand for flowers to a standstill. Those working in the Dutch floriculture industry say they are left with no choice but to destroy up to 80 per cent of total production at the peak season for Holland’s famed tulips.

Data from Germany show just 0.4% of people who tested positive for the virus have died from it, much less than the 9.5% in Italy and 4.3% in France. In the Netherlands growth in transmissions of the virus have slowed significantly.

The official name of the country is the Kingdom of the Netherlands. King Willem-Alexander is the king of the nation. Holland actually only means the two provinces of Noord-Holland and Zuid-Holland. However, the name Holland is often used when all of the Netherlands is meant.

France's coronavirus death toll is 1,331

France's coronavirus Covid-19 death toll has reached 1,331. There is a new idea out there to create ‘coronabonds.’ Some EU member states are not supporting the idea of ‘coronabonds.’

France wants the EU to communicate accurately about the crisis. "France has delivered as many masks to Italy as China," insisted the Élysée. France doesn't want EU’s communications to be too discreet.

‘Coronabonds’ are simple eurobonds, traditional bond issues, but which would be guaranteed at the EU level and not by an individual country. Such a tool would make it possible to pool the cost of the health crisis.

Theory of a Deadman - Say Nothing

Say Nothing is the 7th studio album by Canadian rock band Theory of a Deadman, released on January 31, 2020, through 604 Records in Canada and Atlantic and Roadrunner Records in the United States.

The song Black Hole In Your Heart is pretty interesting. The lyrics are very well made. These words really sound like great poetry. The imagination is impressive with this:

There's a great big bad black hole in your heart
And it keeps swallowing me up
It ain't hysteria, it ain't mysterious
You are bacteria, infection serious
Your blood is colder than an arctic polar bear
Chest beating faster than two hundred BPM
No one believe in ya, ego anesthesia
It's selected memory, yeah you got amnesia
You've got the confidence to suck us all in
This pit is bottomless, the lies autonomous

Those were some interesting lyrics. I appreciate the effort taken to write this and to sing it clearly. Well done.

The following is the entire track list of the music album:

1. "Black Hole in Your Heart"
2. "History of Violence"
3. "Affluenza"
4. "Say Nothing"
5. "Strangers"
6. "Ted Bundy"
7. "World Keeps Spinning"
8. "Quicksand"
9. "White Boy"
10. "It's All Good"
