Now not just the British, but all over the world a battle has broken out to conquer the Pandemic Corona-virus Covid-19. A new war, with very different soldiers, our doctors, nurses and scientists, working around the clock to attend and cure those who have caught this deadly virus.
Our thoughts and prayers go to all who are suffered in the above battles listed, and especially the families who continue to suffer the loss of their loved ones.
