The Corona Diaries – Day 122

A lazy day today. I went for a ten k walk up my hill and have been watching cricket! I might do a bit of something a little later!

Still no symptoms. Do you think I’m asymptomatically infected?

I see Johnson has admitted that they did things wrong at the beginning. That’s something. The trouble is that it wasn’t just at the beginning; it was before the beginning, at the beginning and all the way through. The enthusiastic swagger is simply not sufficient. They were unprepared, complacent and behind the curve. I hope that a future inquest hangs them out to dry. They had plenty of warning. All that’s in their heads is Brexit.

Now that masks are mandatory on public transport and in shops I’ve noticed a lot more people wearing them.

Despite all the optimistic sounds about treatments and vaccines I do not expect any breakthrough until next May. We might only be a third of the way into this.

Despite Johnson saying it’ll be over by Christmas, I notice that they are panicking about a major winter surge – hence the flu jabs for everybody and keeping the Nightingale hospitals open and prepared.

You can’t believe a word the man says. So much for valuing our nurses and care workers. I notice they did not get a pay rise like the others. The PM might clap for them but he certainly doesn’t support them!

One thing is for sure – we’re be depending on those nurses and care workers through the long winter months ahead! All they’ve had is a kick in the face! He was even going to make them pay for parking in order to go to work.

Stay safe everyone – and look after our courageous key workers!

  1. A few months ago a scientist on tv said, in American parlance, that we’re only in second or maybe tied inning of this thing. Which puts us today maybe in the middle of the fourth. And don’t forget that sometimes baseball games go extra innings!

I'd like to hear from you...
