Here in Italy it all seems pure crazyness. I was lucky to stock up, and in my region (Tuscany) goods (perishables and not perishables) are still available, whereas in other places not.
It’s about two month of official lockdown (me and my partner were “isolating” from december already,so let’s say it’s about 4 months that I am seeing the sky only to shop for food…), goverment is trying to decide for the better on the restarting of the economy.
People think the lockdown was to avoid the spreading of the virus (aka stop people from catching it) instead it was just to dilute the spreading not to flood hospitals. So everyone is looking forward to the permission to go out and about, but they do not understand this permission is not going to come in the way they fathom.
goverment feels pressure to reopen for the economy, but they know that as soon as we do… spreading will increase like in Germany.
Meanwhile, in my little house I am happy as a mouse in the cheese remote working… watching things on amazon prime and reading customer support books…
everything that is not the very close circle (family, work and entertainment) is a little faded in the background, because we are bombarded by tons of scary news… but it’s ok… this too shal pass, one day or another i will discover it’s the new normal.
And, oh… It’s Ramadan.
