Social media users and celebrities around the world have rallied in support of a nine-year-old boy who was bullied over his dwarfism. Quaden Bayles, from Queensland, Australia, received support after his mother posted a video of him crying and saying "I just want to die right now" after being teased at his school. "This is the impact that bullying has on a nine-year-old kid that just wants to go to school, get an education and have fun," she said in the clip, which has been viewed 19 million times on Facebook. His mother went on to explain the toll Quaden's bullying has had on their family, stating she had to "constantly keep an eye on him" as a result. She suggested he was being targeted due to his dwarfism, a genetic condition which results in restricted growth. The video subsequently went viral and led social media users to offer their support, with messages flooding in from hundreds of people using the hashtag WeStandWithQuaden. The well-wishers included celebrities such as Hugh Jackman, who said: "Quaden, you're stronger than you know." "You've got a friend in me," he added. Comedian Brad Williams then created a GoFundMe page, urging people to donate to give Quaden the opportunity to travel to Disneyland. Many people commented on the unfairness of Quaden's situation and described the young boy as brave. One Twitter user, Stephen Leppard, said the video reminded him of being bullied at school. In a video message, Mr Leppard said: "I know that there are thousands upon thousands of people around the world who are wishing you well" and told Quaden to "stay strong". He told the PA news agency: "It's heartbreaking to see [this] towards anyone, especially a child." He added Quaden's story should encourage parents and schools to "take responsibility and change" the stigma around dwarfism.
Last month the World Health Organization issued a warning that the novel coronavirus epidemic in China could turn into a global health crisis. Despite massive efforts to contain Covid-19 in the outbreak epicenter Wuhan and surrounding areas, new cases have been reported in seemingly improbable places like Iran, Lebanon, and Italy. “The window of opportunity is narrowing to contain the outbreak,” warned WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus in a press briefing in Geneva yesterday.

Fears mounted on Saturday over the rise of new cases and fatalities outside China from the coronavirus outbreak, as the World Health Organization warned of a shrinking window to stem the spread of the deadly disease. The warning came as the first Europeans died from the new COVID-19 strain, which first emerged in December in central China but has now spread to over 25 countries and caused more than a dozen deaths outside the country. A 78-year old Italian man died after testing positive for the virus just hours after 10 towns were locked down following a flurry of new cases. A second Italian victim, a woman from Lombardy, was confirmed to have died later on Saturday morning. Iranian health authorities on Saturday reported a fifth death from the new virus that emerged in China, and said the fatality was from among 10 new confirmed cases of the virus in Iran. It came as a number of cases were reported across the Middle East, including the first infections in Israel and Lebanon. A second person died in South Korea, authorities reported Saturday, as the number of cases in the country spiked. The Italian man from the Veneto region who had tested positive for the virus died in hospital, where he had recovered some 10 days earlier for an unrelated health issue, Italy's health minister said.
Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren, who absolutely throttled the former New York mayor onstage, noted afterwards that Bloomberg's poor showing was unlikely to derail his campaign in the long term. I'll bet he's reaching in his pocket and spending $100 million more on advertising to try and erase everyone's memory of what happened last night,” Warren said the following morning. To her point, Bloomberg's well-paid staff of video editors managed to quickly spin a version of the debate that made it look like he did alright.
