Well the local authorities appear to be quite relaxed, but sensible around here. I have to travel regularly when few other cars are out, but the police don’t give me a second look ( mind you they probably recognise me as a carer from my partner who uses a wheelchair and special van ).
We know people in the health and care sectors and also people who have lost friends and family members so we know that death is going on around us. We also see the risks to older and more vulnerable people around us who we have to assist. We had to go to a main hospital last week for my partners son to have a minor opp. He was the only one on the ward and probably the last normal procedure that department were doing as the children’s ward was being turned into a pandemic ward the moment we left the building. Movement around departments by any public was strictly controlled. The order came through while we were there for all staff to start wearing masks. I heard that measure announced that morning on TV and l walked in with my mask in place.
We also met and chatted (at a distance ) with my partners old consultant surgeon who had operated on her previously. He had been in the main block dealing with Covid 19 victims and he gave us no illusions about what was going on.
We may be overreacting, but better that way now so we can get over the peak sooner. We can see that nearly happening in China, Italy and Spain.
I am drinking ginger tea everyday, avoiding sugary drinks, and trying to reduce my Candida levels as l have a complex lung sensitivity l do not know how much that would mix with the virus if l was unlucky.
If l have any criticism of the authorities, it is the slowness in lock down and quarenteen of international travellers in the very beginning, and more recently the assumption that everyone has a computer to do everything online!
Apart from all that things are generally good!
