    Drugs come in all forms .... Mine just happens to be you!?

    • Big changes in the U.K. from Monday - in addition to being able to socialise with up to 6 people from other households (whilst observing social distancing guidelines), those who have shielded for the last 3 months are also allowed out.

        Who knew there was this level of selfishness and idiocy in the world. (I realise after typing that how stupid of a question it is)
        I feel like people have generally ignored the rules. Everyone seems to think it’s a bit of a joke. It’s great that there will be some relaxing of the rules this week but I feel people will push it further.

        • I feel like the riots we see, while having an unrelated trigger, are just a glimpse of what’s to come. Unemployment, poverty etc. as a consequence of coronavirus will be dynamite for more global unrest in the near and mid-term future.

            I had the same feeling 2 months ago and I was really worried then.
            I'm still worried, but I'm taking things more calmly now.
            Unfortunately, the riots are gaining ground every day around the world. And I think it's inevitable at this moment.
            Too many mistakes were done.
            Trump, Putin and other leaders of the world thought and think just about their ass.
            When the glass will be full, people will start to go against the power, there will not be way back.
            People will go ahead even if blood will be pour.

            • On the whole, the world’s leaders have dealt with this terribly. It’s no surprise that the world wants to move on and focus on other issues, such as the George Floyd death and fallout.

              The UK government have realised that the public started lifting lockdown themselves weeks ago and are now trying to pretend that they’re leading us out of it, as if people haven’t been going in and out of each other’s gardens and homes or meeting up as big groups for ages now. The Dominic Cummings farce was the last straw.

              I went to a country park for a picnic yesterday and it was absolutely rammed, with most people not making any attempt to keep the two metre distance while walking.

                  Yeah, I was just thinking how today is the first official day of the hurricane season and I'm not sure the world can take what climate change might be wanting to throw its way.

                      This is the part that is so dumb. Like they're announcing these changes to come and i'm like please, people have been doing these things for over a month at this stage. People have basically been doing whatever they want.

                        This was predicted, so I wonder why everybody acts so surprised. Obviously if you write articles in the middle of a crisis where consequences cannot be overseen at all you get this type of mediacycle: from winner to loser. It should not surprise anybody that a full lockdown of a country during a virus outbreak will lead to relatively less deaths than a country that takes a minimum amount of measures.

                        Yet this does not solve the issue of what the best strategy is, at least not in my eyes... There is so much to be considered, and I highly doubt we will ever know the answer. What will the impact be of all the national lockdowns in the EU (e.g., In Antwerp 50% of the horeca is in danger of closing)? We will never be able to measure the full impact on individual lives of the lockdown in the long term, it might indirectly lead to more deaths. Who knows? You can also not compare it to Sweden, as other national lockdowns also impacted their life. It has been clear now that some economies will not survive another complete national lockdown. If there is another wave in the future, I hope governments and institutions are better able to take more focused and thought-out measurements, suited for a specific context and specific target groups (e.g., in Belgium it does not make sense to have the same measurements in a city of 500.000 civilians and a rural village of 300 civilians). Some measurements were definitely needed, but some of them did more damage (probably because we were not prepared at all). I hope we can learn from this.

                          I'm not at all surprised, but some people were claiming that Swedens measures were perfect and should have been adopted universally. There is no "best" strategy but leaving it to chance seems rather silly, to say the least.

                          • It's so depressing to see the UK death numbers not going down, still regularly way above 300 deaths a day while Spain, for example has had between 0-10 a day for a week or so. No wonder they don't want to let us in, meanwhile so much facebook clickbait about UK holidays at the moment.

                                    Yeah but you have to remember it took off in Spain way before the UK. See that's the main issue I see with travel, the virus is at different stages all over the world so once you start to open up travel, borders, airports, trains, buses it's basically a massive risk. It just takes one person on a bus to have it and it's gonna spread like wildfire again.

                                            • I moved to New Zealand 5 years ago and I just feel so fortunate. Today we move to level 1 after getting to 17 days with no new cases we also have no active cases.

                                              We hit 1500 odd cases of which 21 passed away. It is so frustrating seeing how poorly the government has handled it back home.

                                                • The way media still portray Corona as some frightening tragic event 24/7 while the GP doesn't give a single f**k and are out and about more than ever. The city was literally packed & crowded af this weekend and people were so close they were almost groping each other.

                                                  The discrepancy between what is reported and how things really are is stagering.

                                                  It's really frightening how the world is losing balance / the middle ground in all aspects. It's either one extreme or the other with everything nowadays.

                                                  • Well, the thing is that the corona-powers remain to the state (in most cases) and the state essentially has the power to choose whether it will practice them or not. So, as you say, the streets are full of people walking close by (as are here and in most European places I guess) and the state does nothing about it but, try to protest about something important (to the state) and you might get a different picture (or not depending how democratic your own government is). Supreme Court in Australia banning protests, protesters in America "urged to get tested for Covid", UK health secretary too saying "protests a risk for covid" and here in Cyprus people taking part in an antiracist rally being charged 300 euros each speaks volumes about how this can and will be used for political means. It really is an assault on our civil rights in more than one countries.

The city was literally packed & crowded af this weekend and people were so close they were almost groping each other.

                                                            The discrepancy between what is reported and how things really are is stagering.

                                                            It's really frightening how the world is losing balance / the middle ground in all aspects. It's either one extreme or the other with everything nowadays.
                                                            Ok I kind of agree with you on this. No one is social distancing and streets are crowded. Once borders start to open up again and people start to fly and take buses and trains and people from all over the world start to mingle get ready for Wave 2. It's coming.
