  1. I'm only listening to Japanese rock and metal bands at the moment (most of them girls) - silly gimmicks and all. -

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-53237824 "Fauci warns of 100,000 US cases per day" "Top disease researcher Dr Anthony Fauci has told the US Senate that he "would not be surprised" if new virus cases in the country reach 100,000 per day. "Clearly we are not in control right now," he testified, warning that not enough Americans are wearing masks or social distancing. During the hearing, he said about half of all new cases come from four states. Earlier, the New York governor said nearly half of all Americans must self-quarantine if they visit the state. On Tuesday, cases rose by more than 40,000 in one day for the fourth time in the past five days. The surge - which is occurring particularly strongly in southern and western states - has forced at least 16 states to pause or reverse their reopening plans, according to CNN. Florida, Arizona, Texas and California are the four states referenced by Dr Fauci as being most heavily hit currently. For some the new measures come over a month after they first began to reopen their economies." I wonder how much this has to do with the protests.

  6. Oh, give us a hint you big tart. Manx Ices rides again!
  7. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-isle-of-man-53205304 They have the distancing excuse here, not so much in the US and the UK. And an influx might cause a second wave surge of virus.
  8. Depends if there's a second wave. Which should be the same here.
  9. Clear now - https://jerseyeveningpost.com/news/2020/06/30/covid-19-jersey-now-has-no-known-active-cases/ Of several things. Always have been with the first two things and so are most places.
  10. I've been noticing quite a few properties off the market post lockdown, Maybe some is just backlog, maybe others who where selling up changed their minds as the island looked the safer option during Corona times? I've been seeing quite a few that were on the market, no longer for sale.
  11. Was this one discussed already? - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-isle-of-man-53205304 "Two "reckless" hospital workers who broke the Isle of Man's Covid-19 laws by visiting pubs have been spared jail. Stewart Hislop and Stuart Strike stopped to watch football at two pubs en route to buying a meal after arriving from England on 24 June. Manx rules allow key workers to avoid a mandatory 14-day quarantine but insist on self-isolation when not on shift. The pair admitted failing to comply with a direction and were sentenced to four weeks, suspended for 12 months. Hislop, 60, of Bradley Street, Burton-On-Trent in Staffordshire, and Strike, 48, of Hedgerows Road, Leyland in Lancashire, were also fined £1,000 each at Douglas Courthouse. Under the current laws, the island's border remains closed to new arrivals unless they have been given special permission to enter. Key workers can enter and exempt from the island's mandatory 14-day quarantine period, but are only permitted to travel between work and their accommodation, and must self-isolate while not working. The court heard the men were given an exemption certificate to work at Nobles Hospital from 24 to 26 June and, after arriving by ferry on 24 June and visiting the hospital, they went to a hotel in Douglas at about 19:30 BST. They were told the hotel's restaurant was not reopening until 26 June and the only food available was ready salted crisps. The court heard that as a result, they walked into the town centre to buy a Chinese meal, stopping at two pubs to have drinks and watch a football match being screened. The following day, a fellow hospital worker heard them commenting on how busy one of the pubs had been and they were reported to the authorities. Sentencing them on Saturday, magistrates said although the men had been placed in a "difficult position" their behaviour had been "reckless" and had placed "the Manx public at risk". There have been no new confirmed cases of coronavirus on the island since 20 May."
