The World Health Organization released a report revealing the leading causes of Death in the World.

The reports states that Nearly 75 percent of all deaths in the world are attributed to just 10 causes, with the top three of these accounting for over 50 percent of all deaths. Over the last 5 years, the main causes of death in the world have remained fairly consistent.

The top 10 leading causes of death in the world:

Heart disease
Cancer (malignant neoplasms)
Chronic lower respiratory disease
Accidents (unintentional injuries)
Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases)
Alzheimer’s disease
Diabetes
Influenza and pneumonia
Kidney disease (nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis)
Suicide
Minister of Health in South Africa however does not see things that way. He revealed to journalists on Friday afternoon, that dying is actually the leading cause of deaths in South Africa.

“The list released by the World Health Organisation cannot be accurate. Dying is the real leading cause of Deaths in our country. Not all these things they have mentioned with fancy names. They must do their research allover again. ” said Minister of Health Aaron Motsoaledi.

I'm now waiting for the Minister of Work to state that "Being out of work is the main cause of unemployment."

I have been trying to teach my four year old grandson basic Spanish during the latest lockdown but he is not in the least bit interested, even simple stuff like "please" is too difficult for him and I think that's poor for four 😁

Not been out for a bit. Anyone know if Woolworths, C&A and Blockbusters still have the same opening hours?

A rather good joke will be along once I have figured out how to copy something that can't be directly copied 🤔

I was walking through the town the other day when I found a man lying in the gutter.
"Are you alright?" I asked.
"Yes " he replied. "I was so surprised to find a parking space I sent the wife home to get the car."
