Naturally, those little packets didn’t help much, so I was skeptical when I started this whole crazy challenge. Of course, drinking real lemon juice and proper honey in warm water is a totally different experience, and with all the hype around it I embarked on a 12 month quest to see if it really was as miraculous as the trend says. I am pleased to report I am thoroughly converted, and here is why.

The ticking time bomb: cardiovascular diseases - Friends of Europe At the end of May, COVID-19 has taken the lives of 360,000 people worldwide and this number will rise for months to come.

Coronavirus Pandemic: Ranking The Best, Worst Places to Be As Covid-19 has spread around the world, it’s challenged preconceptions about which places would best tackle the worst public health crisis in a generation. Advanced economies like the U.S. and U.K., ranked by various pre-2020 measures as being the most prepared for a pandemic, have been repeatedly overwhelmed by infections and face a return to costly lockdowns.
