Rather a cold, windy and thus decidedly depressing day not improved by the official news on all the websites that whatever the actual numbers (around 20,000, but impossible to be certain) there seems to be little doubt that the UK has the highest death rate in Europe. It also seems to be the case that it was lack of preparedness with no stockpiled masks and gowns and a shortage of available tests at the start which has caused this. Over self-confident Boris and his Tories whose only thought was BREXIT I fear. Deaths in the care homes continue to rise while the hospitals seem able to cope. The car homes though are still saying, despite “re-assurances” from the Government that many just do not have the necessary PPE kit.
Watched a rather boring presentation – very carefully and knowledgeably prepared -talk on Zoom on Greg’s U3A group. To work Zoom needs discussion unless it is a very topical subject and the volcanoes on Tenerife were not that. The next session will be on Free Will. Looking forward to that.
TV Netflix. Have discovered Heist just goes on and on for over 20 sessions getting ever more outlandish. Still gripping for the first 16.
