The days are flying past. I’m having trouble remembering what day we are on.
Well Day 17 brings the good news that Dylan is better and heading back to the front line. Now that he has had it I am sure that he will have immunity and we won’t have to worry about him. So I suppose that it’s good that he caught it. I still think the government needs a kicking. They need to get their arse in gear. They had plenty of warning – since last December!
They had no contingency plans in place, no stocks of ventilators or protective gear, no testing kits and they had run down the NHS for a decade!
They should look at how China, Korea, Singapore and Germany have dealt with it! Testing is essential – Test – follow up contacts and isolate them.
Testing with follow up is the key! We’re not even starting yet! Why are we so far behind???
Dylan is a nurse in the front line and he was put at risk, provided with inadequate protection and still has not been tested!!
It is pathetic!
Moan over – today we went for a walk, avoided the rain, and enjoyed nature. Everywhere the buds are bursting open to reveal the fresh pale green perfect leaves. The birds are singing and everywhere looks normal. Spring is here (even if it is still cold).
It is strange to think that all those creatures have no idea of the way our lives have been affected. Corona doesn’t exist for them.
Back home I finished my third rewrite of the Sci-fi novel I’m working on. I’m starting the final reread.
I have Bo Diddley blaring out and an irate Liz telling me to turn it down – It’s just like when I was a kid and my Mum would be yelling at me!
It is my son Henry’s birthday today. It’s going to be an unusual one – one to remember.
So as the police seem to be misusing their powers and the politicians prevaricate our isolation continues.
It’s up to us to show common sense. Isolate, avoid contact and wash our hands!
I hope there’s something good on telly!
