Weekend – was planning a late week camping trip; PNW National Parks are “over full, over flowing, over used” – there is no availability. Folk are heading to the mountains and lakes.
Sobering: 800k global deaths. 23 million cases. WHO says “pandemic over in two years”.
The Seattle Times weekly graphic:
Friday – continued stories of “folk rushing back” to avoid lockdown and quarantine. It’s not the time to be heading on long haul trips for vacations tbh.
Thursday – Russia vaccine trials starting. Vast amounts of European cases. BBC saying “end of first wave” not a second wave.
Tuesday – more vaccines in clinical trials. Korea sees new cases.
Monday – reports of mutated Coronavirus strain. Will there be any chance of a vaccine? My guess is yearly variants like influenza. Much like the US, exam results are in disarray across the UK. Spain new cases spike.
