So what does everyone think? Lockdown ahead?

i may try VRBO but with 2 top London agents.

Apparently a third lock down was discussed in French parliament this morning. Not surprising really given the statistics.

And discussions tomorrow about the 18h00 going nationwide… (rather than a confinement)

I don’t know. I’ve just been comparing the figures in France and the UK. The average number of cases over the last 3 days is 13,000 in France - compared with 53,000 in the UK; the daily deaths 209 in France, 709 in the UK.
In both countries, these figures are significantly lower than last week - though probably influenced by weekend under-reporting - but the difference is not untypical - in general over recent days/weeks the UK figures have been 3 or 4 times higher than the France figures.

Rumour has it we’re in for early vacances d’hiver in a fortnight and we’ll see if eg a month of shutdown sorts it out. But that’s just rumour. Nobody has a clue.

Une rumeur raconte que si les anglais toussent dans leur coudes, le variant du covid risque de traverser la manche… :thinking: :sneezing_face:

Somehow the English variant is going to become the bogeyman although it was called that because it was identified in the UK

Pas mal celle là !

From the latest Connexion email …

Perhaps the ministers shouldn’t have met? :thinking: :smiley:

French Prime Minister Jean Castex announced on Thursday that a 6pm to 6am night time curfew will be extended throughout mainland France and warned that if epidemic detioriated then a new lockdown would be imposed.
The 6pm curfew would begin on Saturday and will remain in force for at least 15 days, Castex told a news conference.

I (like many many others) am still at work at 6pm. I don’t think it’ll change much.

I worked with her back in the 80s and don’t remember those lyrics. Which song are they from?

Variants are popping up all over the place.
Manaus now.

More virus more variants, if people ( and I don’t mean on here ) had stuck to the advice there would be les virus around now to mutate

Unfortunately, it seems that she really has slowed down now, another Covid victim.

A gentle artistic interpretation of the rules

the words appeared on theBBC programme A whole scene going with a chap called Barry Fantoni and Barbara Deane was invited to the panel to talk to Miss Faithful.
What did you do back then work wise mr House

What is the point of yet more restrictions when people do this -

@tim17
They are all a lot further apart than people at work, and they are outside and it is before curfew, so so what. If it is OK to go to school and to go shopping I don’t see why you shouldn’t demonstrate.
