Re: Corona virus

Be very thankful for being born in a developed country. The poorest, marginalised and most vulnerable in society are affected the worst by this crisis.

India looks to me like millions may die.

No spatial distancing there. I suppose reports from refugee camps in various parts of Europe are hard to come by cos you’re likely to be infected if you go to those places. Lord have mercy.

Re: Corona virus

As from tomorrow we will have a tougher curfew. Excuse the quick translation from Greek.

  1. No movement for anyone except those in night-shifts between 9pm-6am
  2. No gatherings in any home.
  3. We are still allowed to go shopping for food etc but this is only allowed once a day and only after we SMS that we will do so.
  4. All retail except kiosks will be closed on Sundays (I agree with this at the best of times!)
  5. Exploiting neighbourhood observers. (Where did I last read about that?)
  6. For those found to be coronavirus-positive, the Ministry of Health is studying ways to enforce electronic home surveillance.
  7. Suspension of all work from tourist and travel agencies.
  8. Suspension of all aircraft handling services, excluding those relating to the service of flights exceptionally approved by the Minister for Transport, Communications and Works, as well as cargo flights.
  9. A max of 3 people, including the driver will be allowed in vehicles (including taxis).
  10. Penalties are increased from 150 to 300 euros

Complete article in Greek

I should have remembered that mercola articles don’t appear in search results due to the censorship machine.

What censorship machine? Why?

Re: Corona virus

From January 25 to today, I haven’t left home except buying daily necessities.
Despite the lifting of restrictions, it has not yet fully stabilized.
During the quarantine period, it increased the time I spent with my family, which was also very good for me.
If unfortunately get infected, seek medical attention immediately. Don’t make the condition worse. Severe male patients can have devastating effects on the reproductive system. . .

We forget how lucky we are in Europe to still have so much freedom of movement despite restrictions. But perhaps it will turn out we are not so fortunate, Summer? Do you think we’d be better off with a China-style lockdown? Are our governments too arrogant and haven’t taken the pandemic seriously enough?

Just in case you missed Julian’s post from 3 days ago. I would still want to hear Summer’s views though.

Wow! There’s debate here about stronger enforcement here, also regarding an app tracking mobile data, currently supposedly “by consent” but it’s not been implemented. That’s also been mentioned for tracking down past movements one might have had before having discovered being infected.

The first one is strict: how is that checked? Do you show a police officer your SMS when stopped? In Austria, people will soon need to wear a mask to go shopping. But what do you do when there are no masks?

“Exploiting neighbourhood observers” means what? Sounds like the Stasi all over again!?

On another note, if you’re in need of some distraction, there are gradually more “lockdown sessions” videos appearing online. Tastes differ of course but I saw a couple of good ones from bands/trios playing in empty clubs or cinemas in London. Design/architecture fans might also like Gary Hustwit’s design films currently streaming one a week for free.
