Not the way it is currently being handled here. They should have tightened rules not relaxed them this weekend (instead allowing bubbles).

I've been hearing some very strange and worrying stories about some people's interpretation of the 'bubble' relaxation.

I always considered that most Americans, apart from the 'Rednecks' were kind of like us as far basic intelligence goes....BUT!!...have you seen the latest US media reports about the hundreds of 'Spring breakers', these are university students in Miami, congretating for the annual 'party', the vast majority without masks.

Surprisingly (sic) Miami now the city celebrating, with by far the most new cases of Covid in the entire United States.

These students, university students, credited with being the best of the best in terms of intelligence.....REALLY!

So, I live by myself, so does my partner in her own home. She has been getting a little depressed that we can't 'be together'.

The CM and his gang talked about 'Bubbling' in such an ambiguous way that we don't know whether or not the two of us  spending time together is actually illegal.

Furthermore, is there a 'time limit' on our togetherness. In other words, can she spend the night with me?

We just don't know. The words used about 'Bubbling' by HQ and his cohorts are very much open to so many different interpretations.

Think you'll find quite a few people use the buses

Not at present, everyone I’ve seen had maximum 3/4 passengers, a bus driver I know said he carried 18 passengers in a 4 hour shift

In Australia for example, waste water is sampled as an early warning sign of virus spread. 

I believe since the IRIS Project, the Isle of Man has excellent sewer mapping and access to all sewers. So could be carried out here.

The guidance states that you can't 'stay over'.  So I suppose you could meet in one another's home, go at it like rabbits and then go home again to sleep before doing it all again the next day only swapping over houses for a bit of variety. That appears to be legal. Is it sensible? I'm not sure. There are full page adverts about the new Kent variant and how extra duper transmissible it is and how extra careful we all must be to stay home but alternatively we are told that we singletons we can mix with another household, for emotional support (or going at it like rabbits if they are agreeable).

This is why people are not taking this as seriously as they should be. For the government to announce these 'bubbles' at a time of so many unexplained community cases is madness. Advice needs to be crystal clear - this is just another ambiguous pile of shite.

I believe the man in charge doesn't believe in covid. I wonder how many more people have to die before he changes his mind. It does seem a little weird that Texas has made the decision to open up and the number of infected has fallen whereas in the rest of the world with the same decision they have become overrun with cases. Are we sure Texas is telling the truth?

Why wouldn't they? There isn't just one approach to this.

Brazil was always going to suffer.  Largely poor. Enormous population.   Very very condensed areas of residence.  Poor sanitation.  Poverty etc.  

Having said that, how many more people are dying each day in Brazil than normal?

Guernsey back to relative normality today I see.

I guess if we follow a similar trajectory we are looking at another five weeks to achieve the same....

Be careful lots on here don’t like to see Channel Islands doing well, it shows up our government😀
