    Lockdown 3; just got the sequel that absolutely no one wanted, but everyone knew was coming. Local infection rates here over the 400 cases per 100,000 rate.

    Nearly everyone I know didn't bother with household mixing for the Christmas bubble even though this wasn't an area where it was banned - how dangerous Christmas has been will become apparent in about a week. New Year's Eve celebrations (otherwise known as good riddance to 2020) banned everywhere - person in front of me in the supermarket sums it up with their very unusual shopping - Whisky, nicorette patches, condoms, and nothing else!

    On the good news front, is that the most important vaccine in the UK has just got emergency use approval today.

    Interesting choice of how to break lockdown rules - group of people thought playing Dominoes was worth risking a fine (that they got)

    Return to schools for many primary school children today, first day back after the Christmas holidays. In a complete U-turn announced from tonight that all schools are closing until at least half-term and may not reopen until March (apart from for children of essential workers). The 25% of England not already in a lockdown joins the entire country in a deeper lockdown than that started 5 and 10 days ago as that seems to have failed with the NHS in danger of being imminently overwhelmed.

    Also found out today that the care home about 50 metres up the street I live in has had a major outbreak with 36 cases and at least 2 deaths.

    That is a very low number. Here in the UK its been more than that in a single day this week. Questions are being asked if the current lockdown rules are sufficient or if they need to be deepened (the answer is currently unclear, and its a bit of a risk waiting to find out).

    wilbers , we closed flights in and out of Australia and still closed only a few exemptions . most of our infections are from Aussies coming home . they were told back in march to come home within 3 months , oh no they knew better ( should`ve listened to the government ) bloody dipsticks . the main thing they are worried about is the UK strain and the South African strain . most Aussies listen to our governments , even today , here in Brisbane we came out of our 3 day lockdown and everyone was still wearing our masks . we have to wear them till the 22 nd of january in shops , pubs , transport and hospital . my sister collapsed yesterday and was taken to hospital , her husband not allowed in the hospital . we are very strict here , lucky most Aussies follow orders . next week i go to hospital for a check up and i have to wear my mask in the bus and in the hospital . i hope you and family and to all our mates you are all safe .
