I don't see how it's any different tbh @Luke30 

My lad still at school, wife and daughter still going to work.

We're still allowed to go out to exercise, shop and care for elderly.

We have to learn to live alongside this for many years to come. There's no magic wand that will instantly get rid of it, so this no lockdown "lockdown" won't change anything I'm sure.....

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

On the other hand, @Luke30 hairdressers will close, along with beauty parlours.

Visiting family, friends and relatives in care homes will cease which will cause them distress.

Going out for meals will stop.

The hospitality business is already on the edge, and many will be forced to close.

Many people are suffering mental health issues due to lockdown, this will increase.

It's kinda the same here (but we started on monday last week)..

But hairdressers, pedicure, sunbed salons stay open aswell as schools (except music schools and adult education centres). 

Food is takeaway only.

 

The artists - from musician to actor are all upset as they aren't allowed to work - even not with a goood hygiene concept.

Aswell as gastronomers are *bleep*. They invested in hygiene concepts - which really worked (not all tables to be used, mask 'til table, you needed to leave your name, adress + phone number, so you could be informed in case there would have been something. 

There wasnt one case someone got sick after a restaurant visit. On the other hand churches remain open without concepts - et voila, last week we had 2 cases of mass infection bc of masses. 

 

Since the weekend we constantly have more than 20.000 new infections per day, but the R-figure is below 1, so thats good.

 

The Intensive Care Units get more and more cases (and I see it directly at work, I had to bring 3 patients with COVID to other hospitals last week - 2 of them should get a ECMO treatment). It's daily business now.

 

(I changed to another workplace (on the road aswell as dispatcher, later flightcrew), working for a private company now, specialiced in Intensive Care transports aswell as IC flights, so as dispatcher I see if a person is positive).

 

We introduced a system now to divide cases from hotspots to other areas which have more capacity.

I hope the lockdown ("light") will help...
