    Yup. Rihab seems to think the tourists just come and sit on a remote beach or something and never venture anywhere else. Normally in July Paris, Rome, London, Milan etc are full to the brim with tourists.

    • The doom and gloom in this thread. Maybe we should all just stay indoors for the next three years until we all go mental.

        You don't have to stay indoors. I spend a lot of my time in the garden.

            Outdoor sports were never an issue. I never stopped doing my daily hour of exercise or sunbathing down at the river. I have not gone to the busy beaches as no one is respecting social distancing there and they are just too busy. And furthermore I don't like crowded beaches.

                  It's wrong farming minks in the first place and slaughtering them for fur. There really isn't much of a difference for the animals. Killed now or killed in a few weeks or months. In terms of human safety you really don't want to face the risk, considering most of the farms workers had been infected so at that point you don't know if there was mutual transmission between the animals and humans.

                      • Some really promising news from the UK with regards to a possible vaccine. Can't wait to see the reactions of the knuckle-draggers such as the Leeds fans that left their filth in our city centre yesterday, they'll be quick to point out how we came up with the vaccine because Britain is the greatest country in the world...without offering absolutely any contribution to the national effort.

                        Also I read yesterday that the government are re-evaluating (again) how they present the daily death totals after finally admitting that the death tolls have been for all deaths where the deceased had tested positive for the virus, regardless of whether it was the virus which killed them. So it seems the UK death rate has not been as big as everyone thought.

                            I guess you have a point but what if tomorrow we find out that the disease can spread to other animals too? Will we choose to kill all stray or domestic cats and dogs if god forbid we discover they can spread COVID? I mean...

                              Yeah one part of me wants us to develop the vaccine because it feels like we owe the world something after our government messed so much up with the response, however, it does give the idiots another excuse to think the UK is invincible and bore on about the war and Brexit.

                                I would imagine that will eliminate 10 percent at most, so it wont really change the numbers a lot in the scheme of things.

                                      That particular photo led to the government of Mallorca ordering all the bars on that strip to shut down for two months so that was why I posted it as it is Corona Virus related news. No need for the sarkiness to be honest .

                                    People can choose to do what they want at this point I guess, but governments are taking more measures when needed. All it takes it one cluster in a bar area and Miss Merkel will shut those bars faster than you can say FlugenfleigenSchleigenHolden

                                        Yeah I mean you can pick and choose your location or even where to go within that area. My friend was not anywhere near those sorts of streets, but that resort is the not as bad as some of the others in Mallorca. Santa Ponza and Magaluf are the ones where all the drunk young Brits go. There's even a TV series on it, looks horrendous. Absolutely not to my taste.

                                            Oh is that where you're going I would say that is much safer than mainland Spain, and not many tourists there so far. I don't think you will have any issues there, its far better and calmer than mainland Spain. The entire island group has only had around 2500 cases in total. I have some friends who live there.

                                              • The school district here is giving an option of all-online or all in-person to parents. Whatever is chosen is for the entire school year. If in-person they might still need to shut down if cases rise and do online. Still an agonizing choice. It's a lose-lose - if they stay home, they miss out on the social aspect and in-person instruction; if they go to school, they risk getting sick or infecting other people. It's an agonizing choice.

                                                          • Considering that Corona seriously impacted 4 months ago, it seems weird to imagine how people didn't get infected when it started becoming a real thing only to get it now after all this time... Feels like all those people are kind of late to the party.
                                                            Is it offensive to fall in love with you and everything you do
                                                            and everything you stand for?
