As not all of us live in the UK, might be interesting to hear how COVID is going in your home country.
I’m in Ireland where despite the EU medical big wigs declaring the AZ vaccine safe, the government is claiming it still needs more time to weigh up whether or not to approve the drug or not.
In December last year, our R rate was pretty much the lowest in Europe. Then came the government’s craven capitulation to the “We have to save Xmas” lobby and the rate shot up faster than Piers Morgan’s blood pressure after a Megan Markle TV interview.
Having brought the rate back down with another lockdown only to see infections start to rise again, the government now seems to be considering extending restrictions until June – and possibly even July. All of which is not proving terribly popular.
Given that there are many more cars on the roads than there were during Lockdown !.0 and shops that are anything but vital are trading quite openly, flouting of the rules now seems to be worryingly widespread. This does not bode terribly well.
How are things shaping up where you live?
