    Regardless of their public pronouncements it seems that Sweden is following the "herd immunity" approach. I think that's also evidenced by the fact that parents are reporting that they are being threatened with fines and removal of their children if they don't send them to school.
    Perhaps they find it acceptable because the people severely ill or dying are concentrated among the elderly and the migrant communities.
    I personally find it heartless, but it's their government, their choice.
    My Swedish friend told me that they also count deaths in elderly homes, not only hospitals. They have rules but no police, they trust in people obeying the rules. It is their culture.

    Ban on non-essential gatherings of more than 100 people was imposed by the Morrison government back in March. From about a week ago, places of worship and community facilities, like libraries, are also allowed up to 20 people inside.

    What a horror; no more singing together for the foreseeable future?

    What on earth is going to happen to restaurants and all the waiters, bartenders etc. who used to work in them.

    Leave it to the French to try to come up with a solution, but believe me, much as I miss my lunches with friends, or a Saturday night out with another couple, honestly I'd rather stay home. Plus, where is the "dirty" air going, and how often do they clean down the insides of those plastic shields?



    High level British official broke stay at home rules. This is the kind of thing which infuriates me: people who feel so entitled, so special, that they can break the rules and endanger other people.

    Just saw something on the net about a New York City college student doing a semester abroad in Spain who got it, running a 104 temp, whose parents wired him money to fly home, and apparently because he took aspirin to knock down the screeners the airport people didn't detect a temp. He was on a plane with recycled air, waiting around on crowded lines and crowded spaces in the airport.

    JUST AWFUL. What, his parents thought Spain was incompetent to treat him. He had to come home even if he infected hundreds of people???
    No one wants to go. In Australia, beauty salons can open back up, and pubs and cafes in regional or rural areas with no cases are able to seat up to 20 people. Open homes will also be allowed.

I wish I had inherited my mother's faith and and be able to believe that better days will come.
    Big hug dear friend.
    Salento, Duarte, come to Lithuania - it does feel pretty safe here. 4 new cases today, and all of them related to known clusters. Some quarantine measures remain - like wearing a mask while inside, but otherwise, it is pretty good - open air games are allowed, gatherings allowed up to 300 people outside (and up to 100 inside). It is expected that most of the restrictions will be removed by July.
    On the other hand, following typical progression of epidemics, it may start anew any time. And it quite likely will in autumn months. But now the days are long and it is getting warmer (at last!). I look so much for the summer.

    @Dagne

    Thank you very much for the invitation Dagne. In Europe, I don't know the Baltic Countries, Scandinavia and Russia. Here in Brazil, travel agencies organize this tour, which also passes through St. Petersburg and ends in Moscow. If it weren't for the pandemic, this would be the next outing my wife and I would like to do. Our son doesn't like to accompany us anymore. But I will wait for the pandemic to cool down in Brazil. Today, I cannot help recognizing that any Brazilian is a potential danger anywhere in the world. I can be, for example, an asymptomatic carrier and be a very big risk for people in the risk group. Thank you for your kindness, Dagne. It would be a great satisfaction for me to get to know Lithuania.
    Cheers

    I think we are all tired of the situation, and it is not possible to shield yourself off from it even if it hasn't affected your life much.
    I decided long ago that I should skip information about the pandemic and focus on my daily life, but it is still here in the backgrounds, much easier said than done.
    Prices for farmsteads in countryside got up, while renting price in cities when down. Everyone wants to have a piece of tranquility, blending in along the natural rhythms of nature.

    You are right Dagne.
    The consequences of the pandemic are being felt in the economy as a whole and also in the housing market in cities. I am also adopting a filter. At the end of the night, I see the balance of the pandemic around the world and I specifically check the news from Brazil. The news from Brazil as a whole are terrible, but my State, Minas Gerais, and my city, Belo Horizonte, are doing well, comparatively. There are many idle ICU beds in the public and private hospitals and the largest Campaign Hospital in Brazil, located in my city in a gigantic exhibition center, doesn’t have an occupied bed by sick people. But these are exceptions in a very affected Brazil.
    Cheers.
