Chuck E Cheese Is Advertising As Pasqually’s Pizza And Thank You

The pandemic is forcing everyone to find new ways to survive financially, especially with businesses that have a lot of unexpected contacts. Chuck E Cheese is one of those businesses and their way of staying afloat right now has people lol’ing with respect.

Chuck E Cheese is thriving in this new economy.

That’s right. Chuck E Cheese is still selling its pizza but under a different name. You won’t find Chuck E Cheese in your Grubhub but you might find Pasqually’s Pizza. Some think it was so people wouldn’t know that it was Chuck E Cheese while some think the idea is clever and loveable.

You see, Pasqually is the chef who plays in Chuck E Cheese’s band.

That’s right. You might have thought that Chuck E Cheese was trying to hide that they were selling their pizza on the sly but that ain’t it. Chuck E Cheese is just giving the man behind the pizza his chance to shine. Chuck E isn’t about taking the credit away from the true pizza talent.

The revelation did bring up Chuck E Cheese’s past, that people didn’t know.

There’s a lot it seems we didn’t know about Chuck E Cheese. First, he was an orphan who never knew his birthday. Who knew that? Since he never knew his birthday, he has decided to celebrate the birthdays of the children. Also, street walker? What could that possibly mean?

It’s a pretty smart move for the chain that is a logistical nightmare when it comes to reopening.

It’s literally a place for children to run around sweating and touching everything. Imagine having to come up with the protocol to properly sanitize a Chuck E Cheese to keep the virus under control. Selling Pasqually’s pizzas seems like a solid plan for now.

Some people are not at all upset about this.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro Test Positive For COVID-19

After months of downplaying the severity of COVID-19, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro tests positive for the virus. Bolsonaro drew ire from the international community as he campaigned against stay-at-home orders and joined anti-lockdown protesters.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro tested positive for COVID-19.

Brazil has become the epicenter for the COVID-19 outbreak in South America. The country, the largest democracy in Latin America, has the second-highest infections and deaths in the world. More than 1.6 million people have tested positive for COVID-19 in Brazil. More than 65,000 people in Brazil have died from the virus.

Bolsonaro’s positive test comes after a 4th of July celebration he attended with the U.S. ambassador.

Health experts have warned against in-person gatherings for prolonged amounts of time. That includes family and social gatherings at houses or any other indoor venue. In LA County, spikes in hospitalization rates, a number that experts monitor closely, have been traced back to these kinds of high-risk exposure settings.

And, yes. There is a photo to prove the lack of masks and social distancing.

Bolsonaro spent months downplaying the true severity of the pandemic. The far-right leader spent some of his time actively riling up his base to protest against lockdown orders in the country. The president’s actions sparked anger throughout the international community and Brazil’s scientific community. Critics blame Bolsonaro’s lack of action to combat the virus to the country’s growing infection and death numbers.

Bolsonaro announced his positive result quickly to the press.

“On Sunday, I wasn’t feeling very well. On Monday, it got worse when I started feeling tired and some muscle pain,” Bolsonaro told reporters. “I also had a 38-degree [Celsius] fever. Given those symptoms, the presidential doctor said there was suspicion of Covid-19.”

The virus is not gone and the rapid spread is still setting off alarms for health officials around the world, especially in the Americas.

Stay safe and healthy. Follow health recommended guidelines. Safeguard your health first. The best advocate for you will forever be you. This virus is still spreading and numbers in the U.S. continue to climb.

Corey Hannon, a gay man in New York, has received severe backlash after a video he posted to his IG story. Hannon, who suspected he might have COVID-19, went to Fire Island for the holiday weekend drawing anger.

NYC resident Corey Hannon is facing severe backlash on social media after posting this video.

The video was taken while Hannon was partying on Fire Island over the 4th of July holiday weekend. The video shows an upset Hannon claiming to have had COVID and went to the island after quarantining for 8 days. Then he takes a turn and says he hopes everyone catches COVID.

Hannon also allegedly shared on Facebook that his body felt like it was still sick while on Fire Island.

COVID-19 is still a very serious health risk in the United States. The holiday weekend saw spikes of COVID infections across the country proving the seriousness of the virus. According to The New York Times, the U.S. recorded more than 56,000 new infections on July 3rd and more than 50,000 on July 4th. New daily infection numbers have been increasing aggressively since mid-June when states began rushing reopening plans.

The backlash to the videos and posts was swift, widespread, and brutal.

Twitter was filled with people denouncing the actions of Hannon in the midst of a pandemic. Some countries have begun to return to a form of normal after strict isolation measures. The U.S. has been criticized by the international community because of a lack of a national strategy. Instead, infection numbers have continued to climb in the U.S. forcing some states, counties, and cities to pause, suspend, and even reverse reopenings.

Hannon posted a video and people are not buying his “apology.”

Here’s my apology, comments, and my story. Because I failed to mention dates of my COVID timeline here they are:…

In the video, Hannon spends more time apologizing for how people perceived his actions than apologizing for his actions. For a moment, Hannon decided to talk about cancel culture and how it is going too far. He laments about the messages he has received in light of the video going viral.

Some people have gone so far as to call Hannon’s actions racist because of how much more communities of color are being infected. Black, Latino, and immigrant communities are all facing disproportionate numbers of COVID-19 cases. A lack of access to healthcare and outreach around COVID-19 has led to these communities facing higher infection and death rates as the virus continues to spread in the U.S.

Hannon’s video forced people to take a closer look at Fire Island this weekend and it was just…well…

Giancarlo Kristian Albanese, a currency analyst, also shared his feelings about health measures designed to slow the spread of the virus and save lives. An image shared to Instagram shows a sea of men with no social distancing and no masks insight on Fire Island.

Some people on social media are just stunned by this kind of behavior.

And this is why we can’t have anythingSee y’all 2021

The virus is still a very serious threat in the U.S. The European Union has banned tourists from the U.S. to visit because of our inability to control the viral outbreak in the U.S. Our numbers have skyrocketed in recent months with our death number recently cross over 130,000.

Scientists, health experts, and politicians are calling for Americans to act together and wear masks and practice social distancing. Studies and research from around the world have shown that one of the most effective tools in slowing the spread of COVID-19 is the face mask.
