I hope our UK members are out on the town drinking something the NHS warns against, because the pubs, bars and nightclubs will be closed again from tomorrow.
Good God,I was right! Every British man, woman and child old enough to sneak in are in pub tonight
There have been several reports on the increase of calls to the Samaritans
With increases in depression, alcoholism etc. The Pandemic may have a long lasting
Mental effect on many. Luckily like Sir Miles, I'm happy in my own company.
I just discovered Norway has 204.03 cases out of 100.000
I think Finland is one of the few countries in Europe where the number of new cases isn't going up. Corona has to be pushed back here in Norway, but it's still under control.
The problem is, that some industries are really pushing for more relaxed guidelines. I had a "professional chat" with some one in the know (I know that's vague, but it's that way on purpose), and it was the lobbying efforts by the group formed by tourism- hospitality- and event businesses, that convinced the government to start relaxing travel restrictions, even thought the second wave is gathering speed.

I don't understand why, in England, youth groups are exempt from the group of 6 rule. There are restrictions on kids in school as to how much contact they are allowed with other kids. But then they can attend youth groups where they would be mixing with a different set of kids and adults, socially distanced I know but it still doesn't make sense to me.
From today, brothels are open and „freelancers“ are allowed to work again in Germany - so I wonder who was lobbying whom and how ;%
Seriously speaking I am afraid that the second wave will hit us much harder and longer than the first one.
We are far from over with this
A study by Columbia University estimates that 36 000 fewer Americans would have died from Covid-19 if lockdown had happened one week earlier.
Socialism came to the west years ago,
When the public were forced to bail

I think most champagne socialists
Agreed with that, no rich socialist
Wanted to lose any money.
