The founder of the world’s largest megachurch, Pastor David Yonggi Cho is dead.

Yonggi Cho, who also known as Paul Yungi Cho, died in the early hours of Tuesday at age 85.

The popular cleric before his death was the founder of Yoido Full Gospel Church in Seoul, South Korea which has spread the gospel across the country.

According to CBN News, the cleric before his death had been receiving medical treatment for a brain hemorrhage he suffered from in 2020.

The founder of City Harvest Church, Kong Hee on Tuesday confirmed the death of David Yonggi Cho in a post on his Facebook account.

He wrote,  “At 7:13 am this morning, my pastor and spiritual father, Dr David Yonggi Cho (1936-2021), just went home to the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ. I love you, Dr Cho.”

Yonggi Cho was born in 1936 to a Buddhist family and lived through the Korean War.

The cleric accepted Christ at 17 when doctors told him he would die from a serious case of tuberculosis. Cho credits God for his “miraculous” recovery from the disease.

He has more than 500 church locations across South Korea and has sent thousands of missionaries to countries around the globe.

Clerics and notable personnel across the world have taken to their social media platforms to react to the development.

SHOCKING: 18 Out Of 20 Gorillas Contract COVID-19 At The Atlanta Zoo

SHOCKING: 18 Out Of 20 Gorillas Contract COVID-19 At The Atlanta Zoo

According to reports, officials in the State have confirmed that 18 of 20 gorillas at the Atlanta zoo have contracted COVID-19.

This comes a few days after employees reported their first case. Many gorillas had runny noses and were coughing with an appetite change.

Zoo officials let it be known that no evidence suggests animals can transmit the virus to humans despite humans being able to transmit it to gorillas. “While humans are known to be able to transmit the virus to animals such as gorillas, and these cases have occurred at other zoos, there is currently no data to suggest that zoo animals can transmit the virus to humans.”

Officials continued, “Regardless, Zoo Atlanta visitors do not pose a transmission threat to the gorillas or vice versa given the distance between the areas used by guests and the animals’ habitats,”.

Sam Rivera, senior director of the Atlanta Zoo, stated there was concern because there is a strict protocol around COVID-19, but the gorillas were still affected.

“The infections occurred in an area of the Zoo where COVID safety protocols are already at their most stringent,” Rivera said. “The use of PPE when working with great apes was already a standard practice at Zoo Atlanta due to their susceptibility to many of the same illnesses experienced by humans, including the common cold and influenza.”

At this time, the Atlanta Zoo is “using monoclonal antibodies to treat the gorillas at risk of developing complications from the virus,”.

Man Sentenced To 5 Years In Prison For Spreading Covid-19 In Vietnam

Man arrested for killing children

A Vietnamese man has been sentenced to jail for five years for flouting Covid-19 rules and spreading the virus.

A court found Le Van Tri guilty of “transmitting dangerous infectious diseases” to eight people, one of whom eventually died.

Until recently Vietnam had been largely successful in keeping Covid out with tight restrictions.

But infections have surged since June, with an outbreak fuelled by the more contagious Delta variant.

The country has seen more than 530,000 cases with more than 13,300 deaths, many of which have occurred the last few months.

Many of those cases have been found in the capital Ho Chi Minh City.

In early July, Tri, 28, had reportedly travelled by motorcycle from Ho Chi Minh City to his home province Ca Mau in the south of the country.

At Ca Mau, Tri was found to have lied on a health declaration form which asked about his recent travel history, and also failed to comply with isolation rules.

Local authorities at the time had made it mandatory that anyone travelling from other provinces into Ca Mau had to immediately isolate themselves for 21 days.

Tri later tested positive for Covid, and was found to have transmitted the virus to members of his family as well as staff at a welfare centre which he visited.

Tri was sentenced to jail at the end of a one-day trial, and was also fined the equivalent of $880 (£630).

Nike Shows Employee Appreciation By Closing Corporate Offices To Gift Employees A Paid, Week-Long Break

Nike Shows Employee Appreciation By Closing Corporate Offices To Gift Employees A Paid, Week-Long Break

Nike is reportedly spending the big money to prioritize the well-being of their corporate employees.

According to a report by the New York Post, the retail giant is closing their corporate offices this week. During this time, corporate employees will be able to enjoy “a paid, week-long mental health break.”

“Our senior leaders are all sending a clear message: Take the time to unwind, destress and spend time with your loved ones. Do not work,” Senior Manager Matt Marrazzo wrote in a LinkedIn post.

This considerate decision comes just before Nike launches its return-to-office plan in September and only applies to corporate employees. They announced this plan in May, along with their hybrid work model that permits employees to work from home twice a week.

With the surge in Covid-19 cases due to the Delta variant, companies have reportedly been on the fence about remote versus in-person work. Both Apple and BlackRock are two examples of businesses that’ve chosen to keep workers out of their offices for the time being. In contrast, Nike has not announced any delays or changes despite the rising number of those affected by Covid-19.

At this time, it’s unclear whether those returning will have to be fully vaccinated or subjected to other Covid-10 safety precautions. Still, in his post, Matt expressed thankfulness for the opportunity to rest and recover.

“It’s times like this that I’m so grateful to be a part of this team. In a year (or two) unlike any other, taking time for rest and recovery is key to performing well and staying sane,” Marrazzo added.

He continued on to acknowledge the tough year caused by the pandemic, but shared hopes that this corporate break will positively impact employees.

“I’m hopeful that the empathy and grace we continue to show our teammates will have a positive impact on the culture of work moving forward,” Matt wrote. “It’s not just a ‘week off’ for the team … It’s an acknowledgment that we can prioritize mental health and still get work done.”
