We don't hear much about how covid is affecting other countries so much these days. Sometimes a brief mention on the news, but not considered newsworthy. Back in March, we were flooded with how bad it was in Spain and Italy, but not so much now. People in the UK complain about the lockdown (I am still travelling for work as an engineer, so it doesn't really have an impact on me), but from what I can see of Spain, they are very severe. Andalucia has gone into further measures tonight, reading the Vera Facebook page, closing from 6pm with the 10pm curfew. The N332 page gives lots of useful information on what is happening in other areas of Spain. 

It seems to me as a bystander that the countries who had more severe lockdowns aren't faring that much better infections wise than the UK. How are you finding it where you are?

Yes, different attitudes and responses.  I'm in an area where there are lots of Northerners who quite strangely have become super sensitive to Brits who've returned to Spain.  A bit neurotic really.  Equally I could suggest we have a wall built in the UK from say Bristol to Watford to stop them travelling south with the bug, but I guess that wouldn't be well received.

It is though high time there was testing at the airports - the suggestion was raised over 6 months ago and is now operational in a few places - why cannot Johnson & Co get their fingures out and do it! 

Perhaps an approach to Carrie Symonds might work?  She seems to be wearing the trousers at their place these days.

Don't argue with an idiot, he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
