Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

This newspaper headline

Coronavirus live news: nearly 100,000 EU citizens remain stranded overseas due to pandemic (The Guardian)

reminds me of something that happened to me and a group of students some years ago. Can you tell me what the word 'stranded' mean? and what does the headline mean in general? Have you ever remained stranded somewhere?

  2. Covid-19 is less dangerous than before, but precautions still need to be taken, biggest more people beat the virus and recovered, and the death toll dropped dramatically.
    A month ago it was more dangerous than ever, there were many people infected and although no one left the house, many people turned out to have the virus, people won the covid-19 but we were in the early stages and we must continue to be home, soon little by little they are letting children under the age of fourteen, but only for a short time.

  3. It’s possible that now Covid-19 will be less dangerous ,but I believe that this is bacause we have been confined and because when we go out we go out we take measures like:use a mask,keep social distance...

    Two month ago it was more dangerous than now ,bacause there were a lot of people injected,we didn’t take measures and the Covid-19 was lure of distant illness that we though that just exist in China or Italian.

    Also our health service haven’t been prepared for this situation and the sanitaries hadn’t got media.
    Hospitals are calmer now

    I think that we must be careful with that illness. since the situation is still not solved and we have to follow the rules they have set and follow the rules they are putting in each phase

  4. Being stranded somewhere is being trapped or stopped by some situation, for example in an airport, when you miss a plane you have to wait many hours until another leaves.

    Watching the news, foreigners who go from Spain to Great Britain informed them that they have to confine themselves to their homes for fifteen days. It seems good to me that people are confined for fifteen days, but the problem comes now, what do they do with their work?

    They are fifteen days without working, I suppose that being confined there is a sick leave, because otherwise they would throw you out of your job, right? On the one hand it seems good to me and on the other as I said before.

    That people comply with the orders that they are given and that's it, and try to avoid leaving the house and not be in places with many crowds.
