Likewise, cases here in Victoria have sky-rocketed the last few days. A month ago we'd got the cases down to about 15 a day, the last two days we've recorded 6-700 cases apiece. blue-meanie

Boris has put on hold for at least two weeks the next round of unlocking in England - including indoor performances, wedding receptions of up to 30 people, test crowds for sport, bowling alleys and skating rings reopening, and more - which were due to happen tomorrow (1 August). Much of the North of England are no longer to meet those from other households indoors or in their gardens. Things are looking a bit shaky at the minute.

Was always going to happen. People have to be sensible and restrained in how they live and what they do instead of saying "screw it" before heading down the beach with 63 crates of beer and 543,000 mates they only just knew existed on Facebook.

How you feeling about things in Victoria, @The Hole Got Fixed, and the restrictions being brought in?

Thanks for the concern, @Ron Nasty .

The case numbers here have been rather high the last week or so, so I agree with the new restrictions being brought in place (for those not in the know, New Zealand style restrictions with 1 or 2 exceptions, for the next 6 weeks). It doesn't affect me much, as I haven't been leaving the house much anyway, but my concern is that the people causing the problem aren't abiding by the rules anyway. For example, police, when doorknocking to make sure people who have tested positive are isolating at home, have found 800 people were not even at home in the last few weeks. That's a significant portion of active cases!paul-mccartney

Boggles the mind... but at least I know what COVID stands for now:

Citizens
Of
Victoria
Ignoring
Directions

 

I'm lucky I don't live in a suburb with that many cases, but some areas are insanely high - worryingly, many aged care homes too.

 

Still much better than the US, especially places like Texas and Florida...a-hard-days-night-paul-10
