The prime minister has gone to hospital as a precautionary measure and it was not an emergency admission, Downing Street said.
Last year, Clairo received critical acclaim for her debut album, Immunity. Produced by Vampire Weekend’s ex-member Rostam Batmanglij, the album was lush, its sonics filling every corner in the room. However, since the album’s release, things haven’t gone as well as Clairo hoped. The pop singer took a social media break at the beginning of the year after “a couple things happened recently where boundaries were crossed and my privacy was totally invaded.” Following the break, a number of dates on her tour with Tame Impala would be postponed as a result of the coronavirus. These setbacks, however, have yet to stop Clario from doing one thing: sharing her music.
Following her lo-fi demo, “february 15, 2020 london, uk,” which was about letting her guard down, Clairo returned last week with another minimalist effort: “Everything I Know.” The song brought listeners back to her early SoundCloud days. She continued to deliver more content to her fans, sharing a cover of Anna Domino’s “Everyday, I Don’t.” The song comes from Domino’s 1984 pop album East And West and, led by a steady drum pattern and gentle guitar strings, Clairo’s cover is quite the soothing release.

Last week The Weeknd’s fifth record, After Hours landed atop the Billboard album charts, laying claim to the biggest opening week in 2020 so far, as well as the biggest streaming week ever for an R&B album. It was his third No. 1 album and his fourth release to claim the top spot overall.
Now After Hours has once again hit No. 1 for a second straight week, reeling in a total of 138,000 equivalent album units in the week ending April. Of the total, 86,000 were streaming equivalent album units and 47,000 were pure album sales.
Elsewhere, 5 Seconds Of Summer’s latest album, Calm, scored the No. 2 spot, with 133,000 equivalent album units. However, it wasn’t the album’s maiden voyage on the charts; last week a clerical error resulted in 11,000 CDs inadvertently sent out to customers, a week earlier than expected. That resulted in Calm debuting all the way down at No. 62.
Lil Uzi Vert’s Eternal Atake fell down just a spot, selling 84,000 units and coming in at No. 3. Rounding out the top five, Dua Lipa earned her first Top 10 album, with Future Nostalgia arriving at No. 4, while Pearl Jam made their first appearance on the charts since 2013, with Gigaton hitting No. 5 with 63,000 units sold.

Kevin Owens provided one of WrestleMania 36 Night One’s most memorable moments that didn’t take place in a Boneyard when he jumped off the WrestleMania sign like a maniac. As crazy as that spot was, Owens revealed on Twitter today that if Mania had taken place in its original location, he wanted to do something even crazier.
I went to a show there in January. As soon as I saw it, I told myself no matter what I was doing at Mania, I’d find a way to jump off that thing. I even took pics of it to figure out the best way to go about it.
It didn’t work out but I found the next best thing! https://t.co/PCGXr0Aw7I

A fan replied to one of Owens’ tweets that he wished this year’s WrestleMania had been “in the huge stadium in Tampa. You could have jumped off the Pirate ship!” with a picture of the huge pirate ship in Raymond James Stadium, where WM 36 was originally going to take place, attached. Owens responded, saying that he went to a show at the stadium in January and as soon as he saw the ship, “I told myself no matter what I was doing at Mania, I’d find a way to jump off that thing. I even took pics of it to figure out the best way to go about it. It didn’t work out but I found the next best thing!”
So add KO jumping off a pirate ship (and hopefully not dying in the process) to the list of iconic Pirate-mania pirate-y moments stolen from us by coronavirus, along with whatever Kairi Sane would have done for her entrance.
New things are still being learned about the novel coronavirus called Covid-19. One thing that only became clear recently is that the disease can be passed from humans to animals, although such cases are, as per the CDC, “rare.” Right now it seems to only go one way, from humans to animals, and on Sunday it was revealed, according to News 12 in the Bronx, that a tiger at the Bronx Zoo has tested positive for the virus.
The infected animal is a four-year-old Malayan tiger named Nadia, and she may not be the only one infected: Her sister, Azul, and two others have developed dry coughs. They are, however, expected to recover. The Bronx Zoo has been closed to the public since mid-March, and the first tiger didn’t signs of sickness until March 27.
According to a statement released by the United States Department of Agriculture, this is the first known case of a tiger being infected with Covid-19. They also advised that, while there haven’t been reports of any pets contracting the virus, anyone with symptoms should “restrict contact with animals, out of an abundance of caution including pets, during their illness, just as they would with other people.”
