Hello everyone! Our news today comes from Facebook.

Seven anti-vaccine doctors fell sick after gathering earlier this month for a Florida “summit” at which alternative treatments for Covid-19 were discussed. Head event organizer, Dr. John Littell, an Ocala family physician, also told the Daily Beast six other doctors among 800 to 900 participants at the event also tested positive or developed Covid-19 symptoms “within days of the conference”. The US Food and Drug Administration has not authorized or approved ivermectin as a Covid treatment and has said clinical trials are continuing. Dr. Bruce Boros, an attendee at the event, has claimed ivermectin is “working where it’s being used around the world” as a Covid treatment.

Ball seemed to be attracted to him in the second half as Villarreal began to fling in a few crosses. Stood up well to the task and tried to play out from the back. Had to play a new role, shuffling across to left midfield when United were out of possession. Lead the press in the first half and played a more advanced role in the second half, but as United retreated under pressure he drifted out of the game. Playing more right midfield than right-wing, so not seen as an attacking force all that much. One excellent bit of link play with Fernandes when he should have scored but buried his second chance.
