Confused malcontents swilling Chardonnay while awaiting the Zombie Apocalypse.
And despite all mitigation measures, Spanish flu killed an awful lot of people.
The strange thing is that no-one on either side of my family, died during that pandemic.
"The real battle in each country is about trying to keep the economy mobile as well as financing the unemployed and at the same time keeping the health system buoyant with ever decreasing revenue."
I think all our countries are in the same 'boat'.
Unfortunately, as we open up our economies we have an increase in cases, however much we wash our hands, cover our faces and socially distance.
This winter could be very nasty if we follow the same pattern as Spanish Flu and there's no vaccine.
Now is the winter of our discontent etc
Should be good fun
I'm staying at home and if I see friends, it's outside, fairly brief and socially distanced. Take care.
Our company is working from home which is rather pleasing other than my Wife going bananas from time to time over every tiny infringement
;-) My sympathy.
I live by myself in large house with a fast computer and satellite TV. Bliss.
We have been married for 36 years and for most of that we met every 3 weeks or less when I could get home .
It is generally OK but from time to time she throws a wobbly and more importantly can remember things from 36 years ago
Spanish Flu, that was the name in 1918. Why are now people, especially whitey millennials, so squeamish about Chinese Flu/Wuhan Flu (COVID-19)?
Because the Spanish Flu did not originate in Spain. US soldiers spread it.
And Covid 19 has always been the name. It was never changed to Covid or Coronavirus FROM the China Flu to be politically correct. Calling it the China Flu or Wuhan Flu, or Kung Flu is doing so JUST to be a dick.
And a stupid dick at that, given it is NOT a flu.
