Not such a beautiful day today. It’s raining. But we had a nice morning and I partook of my usual 10K walk with the sun shining. There was a little wildlife around – rabbits and a squirrel, but I’m not seeing anything like the same since they moved all the verges. I think they did for it.
I was brave today; I ventured into a supermarket. Lidls had some fabulous Pastel de Natas. Worth the risk.
It seems that Trumpism is permeating the global consciousness. They had a big rally in Scotland against masks and lockdown. They wanted things back to normal.
I want things back to normal too. I just don’t want to die. If we we go back to normal hundreds of thousands will die.
In the middle of a pandemic, we have to take precautions in order to stop the virus from spreading out of control. We have an inept, dithering government, but I can work it out for myself – distancing, handwashing and masks all make perfect sense. We are dealing with ignorance and stupidity. It’s like the Trump virus is spreading as much as the Corona. This virus is no hoax!
In the UK today there were 1813 new cases and the deaths were up to 12.
There is a debate to be had over whether the virus is less lethal and one to be had over whether we should allow the young to mingle and get the disease in order to create herd immunity. I’d leave that to the scientists who have the data.
Once more I would say that I want good clear information – not this subterfuge and muddled crap.
The USA and Brazil are good examples of what not to do. In the USA there was another 42,080 cases and 711 deaths. In Brazil, it was 31,199 new cases with 701 deaths (but they are up and down like a yoyo). When you have leaders actively promoting fake cures and giving out the message that it’s a hoax or some Deep State plot, the gullible are in trouble. Every one of those hundreds of deaths is a family affected. Most of those could have been saved with good leadership.
I’ll leave you on that note to get back to writing my Harper book. Stay safe!
