btw did you see this?


Overall, we rate The South China Morning Post Left-Center biased based on editorial positions that moderately favor the left and Mixed for factual reporting due to poor sourcing.

Johnson's cabinet was advised that if no action was taken, the National Health Service's bed capacity would be surpassed by the first week of December.




The British government has scaled back its end-of-year coronavirus testing target to around 1 million a day from almost 2 million, the Financial Times reported on Saturday, citing people familiar with the matter and leaked documents.

The aim to reach 1.9 million a day has been reduced due to delay in rolling out new technologies, the report added.

Alright I'll check on you in a few weeks when you're done replacing your personality with copying and pasting.

I've no interest in Chinese propaganda and even if it is 100% true, it still bears no relevance to us in the western world. In my opinion there's no discussion to be had.

It was proper dead today. Lockdown is tomorrow here in Belgium, it's depressing as fuck to see this town how it is. I'll take snaps tomorrow but it's hard to stress how different it was to last year. Uk lockdown doesn't sound nice either, it's a shithole at the best of times in most cities. Meh I've gotta do that self isolate shit for 14 days when I go back, I should probably get a PlayStation or something

Can we go back to discussing China and the origin of the virus.
'Member the bat soup days, the meat markets in Wuhan, and China keeping their infection numbers to themselves. I 'member.
'Member when there were only travel bans to and from China?

First of all, the government does not have the power to mandate things like this, so it's down to the 16 states themselves. But they have a kinda consensus with only small variations from state to state.

In short, for the whole of November, everything "leisure" is closed (bars, restaurants, cinemas, touristic travel etc.), and big events will not happen.
Everything else is open, including schools. Takeout from restaurants allowed, retail has to have a strict hygienic concept.

And you are only allowed to meet up with 10 peepz max, even outside.
In some parts of bigger cities masks are now mandated even out in the open. That is down to the cities tho.

I expect some of those rules to be thrown out by judges though. They already tried to shut down touristic travel from "risk-areas", and that didn't hold up for example. We will see.
Sounds a lot like USA's aproach. It was pointless and ineffective. Good luck!
