Yes. Just make sure you look after yourself.

The dam thing is running rampant in Cyprus right now.

Irish whiskey coffee is on the menu fir us tomorrow morning. We will have our gunfire breakfast. :wink:

You should do the same. It’s ANZAC tradition. It’s what our soldiers have before Dawn service.

It’s what they serve at every Australian mess as well. Alcohol is permitted - 1 shot of Jamieson Whiskey in the coffee.

What I really don't get is how it is possible to have the numbers increased that much when you're being subject to quite strict measures.

Is there an attitude like "let find any way to pass it on by any means"? :P

12 months ago, Cyprus was doing excellent compared to most other nations .......... and there was som learning curve for most since then. How is it possible???????

yeah, Cyprus was doing well because the restrictions on movement were more strict and the ports were closed for most part.

This year, the restrictions have been relaxed and more people are bending those restrictions further where ever they can.

Before this two week lock down people were allowed to go out up to two times per day for practically any reason. Just send an SMS.

In my opinion, the restrictions on movement may as well not have been in place.

Also, people are not fully adhering to social distancing and mask wearing protocols. From what I see.

In my opinion, the only way to bring these infections down in the short term is to go in to lock down for at least a month. With only one max outing per day for food shopping or medicine only.

Everything else, could be delivered.

My point is that, where I am for the moment restrictions have been much more relaxed than this. People are roaming freely, but are not allowed to gather for parties. Most parts of malls in some some regions were closed (shops that were selling food kept open). No SMS regime - go wherever you feel like as long as you keep a little distance...

Still contamination were 10% or less of the Cyprus peak

Ages 39-42 can book an appoitment to get vaccinated.

https://cyprus-mail.com/2021/04/26/coro ... ged-39-42/

As of April 25, a total of 241,700 (27.5 per 100) vaccinations have taken place and according to the ECDC 23.2 per cent have received their first dose; with 8.3 per cent having received both.

Lock down is also pointless as Cyprus is letting in tourists.

So combine that with the locals not taking it very seriously as it seems.

If the borders are not closed fully, and I mean a total closure where no one comes in, then lock down probably won't get the desired result.
