I think I've seen this movie: is this the one where the police shoot anyone they see in the streets to enforce the curfew?
European film by chance

1 in 30 people currently have the virus in London. That's pretty shocking.



Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

On the upside, 29 in 30 don't.

Well I have just found out that someone else that I knew quite well has passed away from COVID. What's more alarming for me is that I found out due to it being a news article on the London BBC. I wasn't really paying much attention to the TV but then her name was mentioned and her niece was interviewed. Made me sit up for sure.

Her name was Jan Docker and she taught at my kids' primary at the back of my house:

I'm sorry to hear of the loss of your friend.  I fear that the new strain will result in even more fatalities.  I 'm more inclined than ever to stay home except for grocery shopping, and even to do as little of that as possible. Stay safe, everyone.

wise choice

Wow the area where I work is on national TV ref high covid rate, more testing so a higher number.  Been in tier 4 since March 2020 and has never come out.
