Corona Saga Continues

 So we are currently in a semi-lockdown, starting 6 p.m. tonight, due to the number of infections and rising hospital/IC cases. Bars and restaurants have to close at 10 p.m., takeaways aren't allowed to sell alcohol after 10 p.m., sport events will go on without public etc etc, you all know it by now. Places of public worship (i.e. churches/mosques) are excluded which caused a lot of bitterness  for some, especially in combination with closed pubs, which kinda shows where the priorities of certain persons lie.

There is a lot of uncertainty about wearing masks. It's not mandatory still, but the store owners can deny you entrance if you don't wear one, but only in big cities, but also in the (parts) of the nearby regions, but also in all public places? Personally I can't imagine that a big supermarket won't let you in without a mask, because virtually no one wears them where I live. I guess I'll find out tomorrow!

The discussion is still going on, 1/3 of the population think corona is a conspiracy, 1/3 would rather prefer we were all locked up inside and not allowed to leave, 1/3 follows the required minimum of rules and is content with that. I guess I'm in the 3rd group.

So here are my thoughts on the issue: I do think corona really exists and the cases are rising, though some tests are probably false positives. We also know by now that though it can be dangerous,  the overwhelming majority of the victims are very old and infirm. Does it justify the restrictions? I can't say but I do hope the second lockdown will be avoided.

How are things in your neck of woods?

We are experiencing the last days of the most beautiful Indian summer over here, hence the lack of proper posting. Trying to get as much vitamin D as possible before the rain season hits!

How Dangerous Is Corona

When my mother-in-law was first taken to hospital, she had a slight fever, so the doctors said it had to be corona (because that's obviously the only reason one would develop fever nowadays) even though she had no symptoms such as coughing or sneezing and didn't complain about sore throat, either. They also said she would die very soon.

Not satisfied with 2 negative test results, they made a lung scan which came out clean. Yet, her prognosis didn't change, and she passed away about 2 weeks afterwards. My mother-in-law had several serious health issues, including metastatic cancer, which all contributed to her death. Yet, if she had had corona, she probably would have died a week earlier and contributed to corona statistics and people would read about another virus victim and get scared.

This experience made me think, how dangerous corona really is and for whom? And how do we know it hasn't always being around since there were no tests done in the past? My own Granny, for instance, died from pneumonia 4 years ago, but really from old age. She got pneumonia after she collapsed and became bed-ridden for several days, which the doctor had said was exactly what would happen. Frail elderly people with chronic diseases are prone to lung infections and that's what many of them die of  (I could give you more examples, but you get my point).

Until March 2020, nobody was getting hysterical about this fact or tried to test dying people for virus or forced the family to wear full protective gear while visiting them. So what the heck is going on? Thoughts?

My mother-in-law died yesterday evening peacefully in her sleep. I'd like to thank everyone who prayed for us, and tell you how much I appreciate it. Faith is what gives you comfort and strength in times like this.

We still got a couple of nice days:

The trees on that field were full of mistletoe, and yes we did kiss under it!
