That's about right ime. People here still mask up outdoors in town, even though it's not mandatory. the initial lockdown was hard and long but I think there is a strong sense of social responsibility here.
ddb has flights booked to the UK and back later this month. She's not sure she wants to go.
Time for a big fat one.

I can't quite tell if he thinks things are better in Spain or in Canada. Maybe he is just "bummed-out" that he has to live in Canada.

Seven destinations to be added to England’s Covid travel green list

Including Switzerland you f.cking idiots.
Switzerland has the highest number of people in intensive care (per million population) in some suitably defined subset of Europe.

They're at 34. 8 per million. France is apparently similar, but Austria is 12.5 per million, Germany 11.5, Italy 8.5. Spain must have come down I suppose.

Data from Our World In Data data puts the UK at about 15.2.

I suspect that in these kinds of comparisons, whatever substantial differences there may actually be are often amplified by different levels of language comprehension and media consumption.

Turns out the Brazilian police can work out that you might have been in the UK in the past fortnight if you happened to have been playing for Premier League teams.

Having lived in Brazil I'm not sure this is entirely unsurprising ;)

I'm sure they'd have been less competent if the players weren't Argentinian.

Bizarre. The Argentinian FA should surely get severely shat on by FIFA for this.

More than 300,000 suspected of breaking quarantine rules
Nearly a third of people arriving in England and Northern Ireland as the coronavirus Delta variant took off may have broken quarantine rules.
...although we of course have no actual idea, and it's another one of those binary qualitative outcomes which may hide various degrees of quantitative difference from "not so bad" to "stupid".
