Yes, tourism is a two-edged sword - when living in Queenstown 45 years ago, the local kids loathed the way the tourists took over 'their' town. Income and jobs for many but at what price? I am told workers have to commute from hours away as accommodation in QT is so pricey. Tas is now addicted to the tourist dollar, but hopefully we will not see cruise ships for many years, while many of the proposed developments are not looking too clever. But with little industry with most of it outsourced what choice is there? The kids leave for work and the main growth area is retirees.

Some good news: The State of Victoria, which had 730 new cases in June (the worst outbreak in Aus and roughly the same as the UK number at the time)  has now gone ten days without a single new case or death and has just 4 existing cases. This outcome has been achieved with the Premier opposing Federal govt pressure to relax regulations and with a heavy hand that democracies are not accustomed to.

 

Unsure how this would work elsewhere, but the world's longest lockdown and associated procedures in Victoria deserve a look.

70-90 new cases this last week alone in my area. Blaming people having Election night parties. Now they are doing serious lockdowns for Thanksgiving gatherings and most likely imposing travel bans and restrictions.

Scotland COVID Cases appear to be stabilising at around 900 each day and the 7 day average for COVID deaths is 25 per day. To think that Daily cases were in single figures in June/July and we went 10 days in a row with no deaths ...

Very best wishes from here to there, Steve. We've just had the first bottle of bubbly now that the #1 moron is on the way out and are saving bottle #2 for his apprentice in the UK to be booted. I might have to buy another case as there are at least another dozen to go.

What's the story on your side of Canada Garry? Hearing BC is imposing Curfews and most of the province is going back to stage 1.

New cases and deaths are on the rise across Canada with the largest increases in Quebec and Ontario. In Quebec we are at the highest level "Red". Here is today's Quebec reporting.

Today, Tuesday, Quebec reported 38 new COVID-19 deaths, the most it has added since mid-June. And for the sixth consecutive day, more than 1,100 new cases were registered.

New infections numbered 1,162. Of the 38 deaths, nine occurred over the past 24 hours. 

A total of 534 people are in hospital with COVID-19, a drop of six. Among those in hospital, six more are in intensive care for a total of 82.

Here are Canada's numbers as of Nov 10th, 7pm:

Total cases 273,037

Active cases 41,126

Deaths 10,632

New cases 4,302

Percent positive 2.6%

 

That's it for now.

SWMBO and I are sitting here really feeling for you guys ... and gals. We are so fortunate ... so far ... here on our little island we're actually feeling almost guilty but I guess NZ did the hard yards early on and we have a lot of small island “privileges” when it comes to things like this. There are several smaller islands in the pacific that have stayed totally covid free so far ... mind you that’s a good thing as their health infrastructure couldn’t cope with much. All our best goes to all of you that are copping repeats of restrictions etc. let’s all hope this vaccine that being touted at the moment is all that is hoped for and gets distributed sooner rather than later !!

Not quite magic Dan.  It's been trialled for several months on over 43000 volunteers across 6 countries, but it's still waiting for official approval and regulation etc.

I've been out of the loop lately trying to avoid all the political junk. I had heard if the trials, but just found it funny that it was immediately following our election when Lily and Pfizer announced it was coming.

I have read that this vaccine is so different to other vaccines as this one actually enters the affected human cells and kills them. As I’ve seen the film I am legend with Will Smith I’ll wait a bit longer lol

Shows you how serious they are here in NZ, one new community case yesterday in Auckland. She worked in the cbd and today all other workers in the cbd have been told to work from home. They have full tracing information on the woman and that’s being given out on the news. Everybody that was anywhere near her in those places have been told to get tested and isolate until they have the result. The case is expected to be linked to other earlier cases in the area and they’re hopeful this won’t get too big BUT nobody knows yet. Oh and Black Friday shopping in Auckland central has been shut down. Serious steps for a single case .... so far !!

I honestly don't really know. No one really followed the original lockdown so a 6 week lockdown will only cause mass hysteria. Stores are already limiting essentials again one pack of TP limiting canned goods, diapers etc because people are already freaking out. The governor was on TV and wants Thanksgiving and Christmas pretty much canceled, no travel minimal gatherings, etc. I agree this is something that needs done but there has to be a better way to enforce the violators. The more we are locked down the more kids and teens will be sneaking out doing what they want as before. In my opinion I think the CDC should be laying down the rules and giving us the information, right now depending bon what media source you listen to I've heard at least 10 different versions now on the vaccine, some are saying if we don't get the vaccine we will lose our drivers licenses others are saying only the immuno compromised nwill get the shot, and some are saying the shots will not be covered by any insurance as they have yet to be fully tested. It's just so confusing right now over here and not being able to trust or rely on any news outlet has only caused panic and hording again.

I went into my local store for just a few essentials today and the canned goods, non perishable goods, canned meats, rice, diapers were all wiped out. And meat prices were astronomical. $8.99 for 80% ground beef. And now they are saying $8-10 a gallon gas is on the horizon.

Unfortunately I suspect this is the result of too little too late and should have been done months ago. With the USA so divided at present I can’t see anything working properly ... really the train well and truly left the station months back. I wish you all luck because you’re going to need it. As far as the vaccine goes it’s not yet approved or known how long it will work or if there are side effects yet to be found or how they’re going to even distribute it as it needs -70C freezers to hold it. So any talk of who will get it is “premature” to say the least. From what it appears now it will take years to provide sufficient vaccine IF it works and virtually everyone will need to be vaccinated before anything gets back to normal. Anybody who thinks this is nearly over is sucking dream tablets !! High fuel prices might just get some reality to hit home in fuel hungry countries, we already pay well over $100 to tank up the Tig and the Brits pay even more. The end point to me is this, you can resuscitate an economy, it’s been done plenty of times with wars, economic collapses etc, you can’t resuscitate dead family and friends !! To me that’s the end game, every day above ground is worth working and fighting for !!
