I see problems ahead for America and we could have real issues by the fourth of july.I'm not even sure there is an end of the tunnel. Covid-19 is here to stay and it could very well make circles around the globe from now on out. In that regard, it would be just like the flu.
We'll see once fall hits.
People are currently getting careless over here. Streets are full, shops overflowing, you have to make online appointments if you want to visit a zoo, park or a public swimming pool. Masks are also mandatory for all indoor activities, but so many people are sure that everything is already over and even masks no longer necessary. I had a technician (from my ISP) at my home a couple of weeks ago and before I opened the door I prepared disinfectant and put on my own mask. He looked at me like I was crazy for asking him to put on a mask and disinfect his hands before entering.World wide, a lot of darkness. A little morbid for a Monday morning but its what was on my mind all Sunday.
Let's hope that there will be no second waveIndonesia is grouped with economies seen recovering in the fourth quarter of 2020 and the first quarter of next yeargo.kompas.com
Malls and business have been re-opened in my city, while tourism is getting ready to reopen. I've had a salary cut by 20% last month, but it's back to normal starting this month. Hopefully it's all true, but I'm not sure about the virus spread with this new normal.
I heard a while ago and read recently again that people usually get contaminated in closed spaces. Like at work, weddings, etc. Apparently, there are very very few clusters of cases of people in the open like parks, etc. So if everything is done correctly in the transportation and in the buildings, people should be fine.I'm surprised to see how well it seems to go in Europe, even with things being open and people have more or less forgot about it.
It goes well, until it doesn't. We have a region with 500k in lockdown here in Germany. A new hotspot started forming there.I'm surprised to see how well it seems to go in Europe, even with things being open and people have more or less forgot about it.
Yeah I have a fullblown cold now, if it didn't start and mostly just stay in the nose I would be really worried.Been checking my temp daily since March. Reality on a higher scale for sure....
Dreading even the cooler weather myself. Sept/Oct are months I generally enjoy (summer still number 1!) but this year they're going to be a 61 day descent into fear and anxiety. Every sniffle, any fever and I'm running to get a covid test, if they're even available while what remains of the USA burns to the ground around me.Yeah I have a fullblown cold now, if it didn't start and mostly just stay in the nose I would be really worried.
Any and all colds going forward are going to be making people really worried.
Heh, you're ahead of me! It took from March 15th until May 25th before I even went to a grocery store! France did a real good fucking job of getting stuff under control, so you guys earned the freedom.
speaking of loaded guns, I got an email saturday that someone got tested positive for covid and those who were near theeperson were to be tested. My GM told me that I wasn't around so I didn't need to be tested.I had to ride an elevator today and it felt like playing with a loaded gun
Fucking hell stay safe and keep taking precautions.speaking of loaded guns, I got an email saturday that someone got tested positive for covid and those who were near theeperson were to be tested. My GM told me that I wasn't around so I didn't need to be tested.
That was a lie.
Apparently I worked the same shift with this person twice and have crossed paths with them. Oh, the people who were tested? they were allowed back at work the next day before they got the results back.
I have no idea how the Japanese lucked out on the first wave and I'm seriously wondering how accurate the metric was. The government's response has been really terrible :/.463 in Tokyo today. Man, call for home office and shut down the restaurants. Tokyo govt just sitting around and saying things like "we consider announcing emergency ourselves if situation deteriorates" is infuriating.
I was in Tokyo during the first wave and arguably they did better. The country announced emergency in early April, many restaurants and stores were shut down and companies carried out home office. Now? The whole situation is obviously worse than the first wave but they chose to did nothing;I have no idea how the Japanese lucked out on the first wave and I'm seriously wondering how accurate the metric was. The government's response has been really terrible :/.
Yeah we have something similar in the UK: the "Eat Out to Help Out" scheme.Actually, they did something worse. In order to improve domestic tourism, there is a scheme called "Go To Campaign" going on.It offers rebates to local travelers when they resides in local hotels.
Wow, that's bizarre. Logic fails and people die.Yeah we have something similar in the UK: the "Eat Out to Help Out" scheme.
Basically everyone each (meaning: per person!) gets 50% off (up to 10£) their bill in selected restaurants, 3 days a week in August.
Now, let alone the sheer idiocy of including fast food chains instead of actually helping local restaurants, you get the discount only if you eat in!
Take out and eat in the park 200m away from the next person? NOPE.
Eat in beside a table full of coughing people? YES PLEASE!
