In a surprise to nobody, cases are the highest in the North but rising rapidly in the south in almost a reverse of March/April according to Imperial College London.

Surely they have to at least put everybody in Tier 2.

Confirmed yesterday that Germany is going into a "soft" national lockdown for the month of November. Going shopping on Saturday is going to be f***ing wild with everyone stocking up. I might take a late lunch and go out tomorrow afternoon instead. thinking.gif


It was needed, the situation is escalating rapidly and in some places, like Berlin, control has been lost completely. I wish we'd moved sooner into some form of proper lockdown in Berlin as this is at the very least this is a good 2-3 weeks overdue. In the grand scheme of things, the action country wide is rather quick and responsive to the situation going from being Berlin + a few bad but localised outbreaks to being "the whole country is f***ed" in less than a fortnight. We've acted properly at lot earlier in the second wave than the rest of Europe. Although I do wonder if this national lockdown would be strictly necessary had Berlin 1) Actually enforced its party ban properly and started handing out eyewatering fines for both the organisers and attendees at the illegal raves 2) Gone into a city-wide lockdown 2-3 weeks ago.

The prolonged level of low cases here defo lead to complacency

If we could have social distance like we did in Wales in July it would be much better but they donít want to invest in that.

In fairness, i think there is a lot of things that Cardiff and Edinburgh would like to do but are unable to because London controls all the finances and are currently pretending this crisis doesn't exist. Much like they do for starving children.

Gobsmacked that Angela Merkel has given Germany "10 days to get the infection rate down" as opposed to imposing extra restrictions straight away. Has she been completely ignoring the worsening situation in France, Spain and the UK?! Makes me feel better about some of our government's decisions :')

20 days later....




Germany is at a lower point now than the UK was on October 9th and after proper sustained evidence that Germany is starting out on the Spanish/French/British autobahn of failure, we have taken the exit marked "early second lockdown" and the UK has what.................... a hopeless PM who has been more concerned with ensuring poor kids can't get food than on dealing with Coronavirus?

The UK Gov hasn't made any decisions. It went to war with Greater Manchester for a whole f***ing week, a week wasted and measured in increased cases and deaths.


This was a daft comment back then, but 20 days later it now looks like a CrazyChris comment.

The media is reporting that Birmingham and the West Midlands is set to move into Tier 3 next week - Andy Street and local councils are trying to agree the package of measures.

I'm not surprised, it feels like people are behaving exactly the same as the pre-tier system.

Some interesting graphics explaining how Coronavirus is able to spread and a demonstration of how 'superspreader' events can occur, it also pretty clearly explains why the virus was easily controlled in warmer climates and during the peak of summer (with more people eating and meeting outdoors).

There is also of course the fact most of it now is probably a new mutation of the virus that originated in Spain which may be more easily spread than the original Covid.
