@grindalf, don't let it get to you, try and accept people are dicks. My daughter worked in a very busy small cafe prior to lock down, I empathise.

I've been away in both Norwich and Devon this last week and been coincidentally in two of the lowest areas in the country with the infection rate. Two people I know that work in admin at the main hospital in Norwich told me that there are no cases on the covid ward at all, to their knowledge.

In the South-West (Devon) area people are happily going about their business visiting cafe's and pubs mostly responsibly, and also wearing masks when going into shops - mainly because they have been told they have to. The pubs have bacterial gel in the entrances and you can sign in your details (if you want to - nobody is forcing it) but the only real noticeable difference from normal operation is that there's a couple of tables closed off (probably just for show) and you are mostly ordering food/drink on your phone. And that's not even new it seems - it just wasn't the usual way until recently. Nothing to stop you going to the bar to actually order but there were lots of signs saying that you should avoid that where possible.

Probably they're just lucky that there's been no real issues in these places but I can see why people are struggling to believe all the TV news when they've had virtually no exposure. Not to mention an inept government that keeps changing its mind on what it should be doing depending on whatever keeps the bigger groups happy. They close off anyone from viewing sport events that were meant to be trialling a staged return, such as the World snooker championship, because it's ... Too Risky! Yet they have kept pubs and restaurants open, where it's not possible to wear a mask practically, and people are all rammed together anyway, because they need to get business back up and running. You can even get 50% discount on your food for Mon,Tues and Wednesday to encourage you to do it.

I was in a beer garden in a pub in Norwich last Saturday with multiple friends as well as a lot of other people due to the FA Cup being on the box. People were as respectful of your space as was practical but there's no way the 1Meter rule could be enforced in this situation without pissing off a load of people who just wanted a drink and a chat with their mates.

Personally I think they're putting too much emphasis on trying to lockdown areas where the virus is spreading wildly and not looking enough at nailing on the head the reason why it's spiking in that particular spot.

not sure if you have followed the controversy which happened in France but this demonstrated the difference between verifiable observable facts and (fake) "scientific" propaganda.
dr didier raoult vs lancet "scientists" report (lol)

seeing the not so high number of deaths (of people who would have died of something else anyway) this "pandemic" is clearly to push something else, maybe more fear and distanciation and paranoia between people ? (oups already like that), less riots ? (oups already forbidden), more surveillance ? (5G and sensors / cameras are put in place in cities), vaccine to track people ? (not sure about this one, but there are some clues here and there...)

all of this for your health and well being of course, so don't worry ;)

@RemiD

An excerpt from an email I sent to family since we are heavily locked down in Winter.

---------

I present to you a thought experiment for the covid period.

Many commercial office buildings in the cbd will be mostly empty.

Many homes previously unoccupied between 9am and 5pm will be.

It is Winter, thus heating is desireable.

An office that previously housed and heated 50 individuals will no longer require heating.

Instead, approximately 50 houses will need to be heated instead, likely at far less efficiency.

Commercial electricity rates are likely already lower per unit kw than residential due to bulk purchasing.

So a drop of the heat required to heat 50 people shifted on to a less efficient 50 homes instead at a higher dollar rate.

This will likely lead to an increase in revenues of electricity companies that will not be insubstantial.

My guess is that for every employee not in an office the revenue will go up by one home's Winter electricity bill per home required to heat instead.

I'm with Gfk for the use of masks.

You should wear a mask for the same reason a surgeon wears one when working. It's not to protect the surgeon but to help protect the patient, ie not to protect you from others but to protect others from you.

So I was out the other day and I said to this woman, "shouldn't you be wearing a mask?".

She goes, all smug like, "no you idiot.  I'm outside so I don't have to. The risk of coronavirus is low".

"I'm not on about coronavirus - you're boot-ugly and you're scaring my dog".

The masks help out a lot --- saw a lot of attractive woman (at least their eyes) but as soon as they went of their mask ... you saw the faces of too much sun studios, nicotin or puberty (acne).
For man a lot similar stuff could be said.
For some of us it might be a good idea to wear masks regardless of healthiness ;D

That girl is what we call a "Seven pints, would you?" question down here in Middlesex.

I'll give it some consideration ;-)

A history of our world since 2015, including coronavirus - a metaphor....look around you...and observe for yourself.
