      Some of these bosses don't like when you tell them that you not feeling well. They thinking you just want to leave work for whatever reasons. But I always feel that when any staff say that they not telling well, bosses should be understanding because we never know what could be going on with that individual.

        Where in the article you read that the boss did not believe him? He said he wasn’t feeling good and he was rushed to the hospital. What about offering your condolences to the family instead of trying to blame someone?

    Everything now is "Corona, Corona"...I guess people cannot not fall ill from anything else now-a-days... The Corona Virus is a fact ,but every time something happen it's impossible for everything to fall under "Corona". All this stuff about washing hands seems to be something new to some of us..We actually grew up with this practice (wash you hands before you eat, wash your hands after using the restroom, if you going to cook..wash your hands before) so this should be old news to us.R.I.P who ever you was Sir and condolences to his family.

      Exactly! For some people it seems as if they forget that before COVID19 people were dying all the time from flu, pneumonia and other issues all the time. Take precautions yes but all this panic is just stupid. People die everyday from AIDS and the condoms have never sold out.
