    Did you make it through Arwen alright? A serious storm, I see.

    The difference in approach is significant. Looks like non vaccinated people will gradually be more and more restricted in where they can go over here. Tomorrow a sort of evening/night lockdown will take effect for everyone. Hospitals are being overwhelmed with new cases. Again. 70% at the ICU is not vaccinated. 1.2 million adults aren't vaccinated. Still very high potential for a horrible scenario. Doctors are warning for code black approaching rapidly. If that's a Dutch term: that's when doctors have to choose for who'm there'll be a bed in the ICU and for who'm not.
    Other healthcare has been severely scaled down to accommodate the new COVID cases. Not everybody is going to survive that. People waiting for radiation, for instance. It's pretty bad.

    I'm worried about the elderly and more vulnerable people. We're the lowest in Europe with boosters. Only 0,6% per 100 inhabitants. The other day I read a booster will most likely be coupled with the corona pass in the EU in the near future. No booster, no access. Won't happen for me any time soon. I'm the only one in my family who is vaccinated. Sisters and mother are anti vaxx. I'm worried about my mother and niece who has asthma. Mom has an auto immune disease and is 74. Everybody will contract COIVD soon or later.

    Taken from a screen shot, a bit blurry.

    Thanks, I'm doing okay. All advised to stay indoors today though, so have just stayed in my apartment today. Is a noisy storm though. 98mph/160kmh gusts of winds here. Been a few images of lorrys being blown over. Cousins opted to drive back up to Scotland in this today.

    That doesn't sound good if it's approaching that. Other care being shut off...yeah, i agree. Kills people in other ways. Heard here a few months back that the Cancer backlog is several months long (as in the screenings for cancer are being put off, so early detections wont be happening.)

    I hope your Mum and niece are okay through this. Looks like its going to be a rough winter for some places in Europe.

    I think you're right - we're probably all going to get it at somepoint.

    I've got my booster tomorrow. May be fun getting to it with Arwen though.

    In Ireland it looks like lockdown again. Though will they actually call it lockdown? I had said no to that one. The health experts want us locked down for Christmas. In a sense I can see why. The numbers are through the roof again. Is not getting any better. So the question been asked of the government is do you just let it get worse? Because doing nothing will mean things getting worse. Restrictions brought in last week were a joke. Places to close earlier. That meant that those places simply opened earlier. Thus changing nothing at all. So I can see them hitting us with a lot of new restrictions. That will amount to a near lockdown. But not actually calling it a lockdown. I do think social distancing needs to be brought back in. People have let that one go out the window here. Might be on a queue and have the person behind you nearly on your back. I like my space as it is. Limit the number to shops again. To hell with football matches and all of that. Let them have their games. Without the fans. Because that is a big issue. Large gatherings. So that might be what they aim things at. To stop large numbers been in one place.

    We have some restrictions back. Masks back in stores and on public transport. If you fly back into the UK from abroad its a Day 2 PCR + quarantine until the result of that. Entry banned from most of Southern Africa unless you are a citizen or resident, then its 10 days in a quarantine hotel at your own expense. Only they made the announcement and didn't tell anyone when these new rules were coming into place. So now everyone is a bit confused. Anyone coming back from abroad is wondering, is a LTF enough, or do I need to get a PCR and isolate until result? (Bet you the guys at passport control haven't got a clue either, as always...) This being because of Omicron. Not because of cases. Still allowing travel from Austria, for example, which is high.

    Lot of noise about Omicron from here. Thanks to the UK media being a hysteria machine ("We're all going to die!" "Christmas cancelled again!", blah de blah), hard to filter it out. But looks like the symptoms are "unusual but mild".

    South Africa is pissed with us. And the rest of the world for shutting off there flights. Can see where they're coming from. World shut off all travel from UK when it was Alpha that was here. Big queues at the ferry terminals when France stopped the ferries and the trains. Whole load of lorry drivers stranded here unable to get back.
