Last night, President Rodrigo Duterte declared the highest alert level of Code Red Sublevel 2. He also declared a community quarantine for Metro Manila, which bars “land, domestic air, and domestic sea travel to and from” the capital from March 15 to April 14, 2020. Classes across all levels have also been suspended until April 12.
Everyone is also encouraged to stay at home, which means plenty of free time to… do things.
Pornhub is giving free premium access to combat cabin fever, or extreme restlessness when isolated, during the coronavirus quarantine. You don’t even need to give your credit card details.
There’s a catch. You have to be in Italy to access it.
The country has the highest cases of COVID-19 in Europe. According to the country’s Civil Protection Agency, there are now 15,113 cases and 1,016 deaths. All shops are now closed, except for pharmacies and those stocking food. Companies have been ordered to shut select departments and venues are now closed.
When you open Pornhub in Italy, you will be greeted with this message, “To keep you company at home during these weeks, you’ll be able to access Pornhub Premium for free for the whole month, with no need for a credit card.”
It added that Modelhub, the website’s creator, will donate its revenue for March to help the country overcome the emergency.
COVID-19 in the Philippines and around the world

As of posting, the World Health Organization (WHO) has reported 125,288 cases of COVID-19 with 4,614 deaths in 118 countries. However, it is important to note that recoveries are rising. John Hopkins University has declared 66,000 recoveries. China, which has the highest numbers of cases, reported 40 new cases on March 10, a stark contrast from 4,000 cases per day at some points in February. South Korea noticed a downward trend in new cases, while Macau discharged its last recovered patient on March 6.
