News from Monaco

The Government has set up a dedicated site about the virus at: Gouvernement Princier - Covid-19. It contains all the information about the measures being taken in Monaco, recommendations for personal health care and daily life, and the emergency number to phone if you think you're infected.

To cheer ourselves up we followed the example of La Gachette de Monaco (see below) and searched around for some poetry. Top of our list is AA Milne's Sneezles, the last line of which is the headline of today's news roundup. Another favourite is Roger McGough's Let Me Die a Youngman's Death, and the retort he wrote when he was older, Not For Me a Youngman's Death. And finally, anything by the Bard of Salford, John Cooper Clarke.
