Wentworth cast told to ‘stay under the radar’ as filming continues despite Victoria’s lockdown

Wentworth cast are told to ‘stay under the radar’ as the prison drama continues filming despite Victoria’s lockdown

The cast of Wentworth have reportedly been told to downplay the fact that production is still going forward despite the coronavirus lockdown in Victoria.

According to Mumbrella, Victoria’s Department of Health and Human Services has allowed production to continue as long as there is a ‘COVID Safe’ plan in place.

An email was reportedly sent to the show’s cast members, telling them it’s ‘wiser to stay below the radar’.

Mumbrella claimed an email from production company Fremantle to the cast said: ‘We’re not trying to hide the fact we are working through. Media are aware that production in general is continuing; however, in this current climate, it’s such an emotive issue, [it’s] wiser to stay below the radar.’

Fremantle also reportedly advised the staff to avoid drawing attention to filming on their social media accounts and during interviews.

‘For the moment on your socials, please focus on promoting what is playing out on air rather than filming,’ the email continued.

‘For those doing interviews for Foxtel and Channel 5 in the UK, continue with the usual response if asked about filming – “very fortunate to be working through with our very strict COVID safety measures which have been in place for some time now, everyone is invested in making it work and it’s all going well.”‘

On Sunday, Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews declared a State of Disaster after 671 new COVID-19 cases that day – bringing the state’s number of active cases to 6,322.

This means that Melbourne is under a police-enforceable curfew of 8pm until 5am until at least September 13, as the rest of Australia returns to business as usual.

Melburnians can only leave their homes between these hours for work, care-giving, medical reasons or on compassionate grounds. 

The city’s 4.9 million residents have also been banned from travelling more than 5km from home to do their shopping – and only one person from each household can leave at any time.

Regional Victorians have also had further restrictions imposed on their freedom as they re-enter stage three restrictions.

Machine Gun Kelly joined by Megan Fox and co-star Lala Kent as he gets BULLET HOLE neck tats

Machine Gun Kelly gets BULLET HOLE neck tattoos as girlfriend Megan Fox and co-star Lala Kent watch on at a parlor in Puerto Rico

Machine Gun Kelly got a striking tattoo of bleeding bullet holes applied to the side of his neck in Puerto Rico this week.

The blond 30-year-old rapper was joined at the tattoo parlor by his girlfriend Megan Fox and their Midnight In The Switchgrass co-star Lala Kent.

All three of them are currently in Puerto Rico to resume shooting on the upcoming film, which had its production suspended by the coronavirus lockdowns.

He revealed in a new Instagram album that he has also had more body art applied to his left side though the exact image is still unclear.

The slender rapper, whose Christian name is Colson Baker, captioned his album: ‘take me away from all this death.’

Tattoo artist Zuhemy ‘Zuh’ Cordero, who is based in the Puerto Rican capital San Juan, posted her own Instagram video.

Megan and Lala were both tagged in the post, which showed Zuh leaning over Machine Gun Kelly and apparently applying some ink to his leg.

On May 18 amid rumors of her fling with Machine Gun Kelly, Brian emotionally revealed on an his podcast …With Brian Austin Green that Megan had left him.

Megan has rebounded with the slim blonde and was seen last month lapping up the luxury with him at a resort in Puerto Rico.

The cast were quarantining at the resort before filming resumed, Megan and Machine Gun Kelly’s co-star Emile Hirsch revealed on Instagram.

She previously filed for divorce from Brian in 2015 citing irreconcilable differences, but she was back with him and pregnant with their youngest son the following year.

Three years after they got back together, Megan took the legal step of filing to dismiss the divorce petition last April.

As Megan ran around with Machine Gun Kelly, Brian was glimpsed out on dates with Maxim model Tina Louise and former ‘child bride’ Courtney Stodden.

He recently appeared on Hollywood Raw with Dax Holt and Adam Glyn and said ‘I found out in my own way’ about Megan and Machine Gun Kelly.

And that’s as much detail as I’ll give you on that one. I didn’t read about it or anything like that,’ said the Beverly Hills 90210 hunk.

The film premiered at the Berlin Film Festival in February and co-stars Sigourney Weaver. 

Joanna Rakoff’s memoir of the same name served as source material and follows a young writer in 90s New York City who begins to work for author J.D. Salinger. 

Once Hollywood production begins again, she had two movie projects lined up.

She’s attached to star opposite Robert Pattinson in the drama The Stars At Noon about a woman involved in a shadowy mission in Nicaragua in 1984.

She’s also set to play the lead in the horror film A Head Full of Ghosts which centers on a woman reflecting on her terrifying childhood 20 years later.

Arnold also has a fifth child, Joseph Baena, who he fathered with his housekeeper at the time, Mildred Patricia “Patty” Baena. Joseph, 22, wished his father a happy birthday in a rare throwback picture last week. 

Meanwhile, Patrick, 26, captioned the family photo, ‘I’m trying so hard to smile… damn wisdom teeth SMH… Happy birthday pops! Love u’ with his siblings Katherine, 30, Christopher, 22, and Christina, 29. 

Despite filing for divorce after 25 years of marriage back in 2011, recent reports have suggested that Schwarzenegger and Shriver are still legally married as they have never finalized their divorce proceedings.

Shriver filed for divorce after learning that Schwarzenegger had fathered a child – Joseph – with their housekeeper Mildred.

The child was on October 2, 1997, only a few days after Shriver gave birth to the couple’s fourth child, Christopher. 

But it wasn’t until May of 2011 that it was revealed that the housekeeper’s child was his.

Coronavirus: Droplets can travel further than thought through air

Air transmission of Covid-19 is being underestimated – which could impact guidelines on social distancing, ventilation systems and shared spaces, warns new research.

Researchers at Heriot-Wyatt University and University of Edinburgh found evidence that both small and large droplets can travel relatively long distances through the air – and not always in predictable directions with airflow.  

The World Health Organisation (WHO) warned aerosol transmission of Covid-19 is being underestimated as a study reveals droplet spread from humans does not always follow airflow.

Researchers say the new findings on droplet migration may have important implications for understanding the spread of airborne diseases such as COVID-19.

 It comes after top US infectious disease specialist Dr Anthony Fauci admitted during a Monday JAMA interview that there is much unknown about how coronavirus spreads through the air and that he himself needs to ‘study’ papers that suggest big droplets can travel further than six feet. 

Scientists of the study at Heriot-Watt University and the University of Edinburgh in Scotland echoed his sentiments that a better understanding of different droplet behaviors and their spread based on droplet size is also needed.

Scientists in the UK found that both small and large droplets from people coughing or just breathing can travel far distances and unpredictable directions, suggesting the airborne danger of coronavirus – but they invented a device to ‘extract’ tiny infectious particles not stopped by masks from the air (file)  

Government guidelines will need to be considered if air transmission is proven to be significant.

Dr Cathal Cummins, an assistant professor at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, said: ‘The flow physics of someone coughing is complex, involving turbulent jets and droplet evaporation.

‘And the rise of Covid-19 has revealed the gaps in our knowledge of the physics of transmission and mitigation strategies.’

One such gap in the physics is a clear, simple description of where individual droplets go when ejected.

Dr Cummins added: ‘We wanted to develop a mathematical model of someone breathing that could be explored analytically to examine the dominant physics at play.’

The team created a mathematical model that clearly shows small, intermediate and large-sized droplets.

They found simple formulas can be used to determine a droplet’s maximum range.

This has important implications for understanding the spread of airborne diseases such as Covid-19 because their tests revealed the absence of intermediate-sized droplets, as expected.

As a person breathes, they release droplets of different sizes that do not necessarily follow the airflow.

Dr Cummins said: ‘We represent breathing as a point source of both air and droplets and include a point sink to model the effect of extraction of air and droplets.

‘To take their size and density differences into account, we use the Maxey-Riley equation, which describes the motion of a small but finite-sized rigid sphere through a fluid.’

This work gives researchers a general framework to understand the droplet dispersion.

The model shows that bimodality, or having two modes, could actually be a property of the droplets themselves.

Researchers provided formulas to predict when such droplets will have short ranges and say both large and small droplets can travel further than medium-sized ones.

Co-author Dr Felicity Mehendale, an academic surgeon at the University of Edinburgh, said: ‘Our study shows there isn’t a linear relation between droplet size and displacement, with both small and large droplets travelling further than medium-sized ones.

‘We can’t afford to be complacent about small droplets. PPE is an effective barrier to large droplets but may be less effective for small ones.’

As a solution, Dr Mehendale came up with the idea of creating an aerosol extractor device.

The team is working on plans to manufacture the product to keep clinicians safe during a wide range of aerosol-generating procedures routinely performed in medicine and dentistry.

Extraction units placed near the droplet sources can effectively trap droplets, if their diameters fall below that of a human hair.

Dr Cummins said: ‘This has important implications for the COVID-19 pandemic.

‘Larger droplets would be easily captured by PPE, such as masks and face shields. But smaller droplets may penetrate some forms of PPE, so an extractor could help reduce the weakness in our current defence against Covid-19 and future pandemics.’

Dr Mehendale said a better understanding of the droplet behavior will help ‘inform the safety guidelines for aerosol-generating procedures.

She added: ‘It will be relevant during the current and future pandemics, as well as for other infectious diseases.

‘This mathematical model may also serve as the basis of modelling the impact on droplet dispersion of ventilation systems existing within a range of clinical spaces.’

Findings were published in the Physics of Fluids journal from AIP Publishing.
