Latest updates from the UK... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-53609467

The government last night imposed restrictions in certain parts of England (including where I am - yay!) that people from different households cannot meet indoors or in private gardens and can only meet outside in your bubble (bubble here is defined as your own household or in the case of a single adult household it's your household plus one other household of any size). This after the first local lockdown in Leicester is beginning to be eased as the cases per 100,000 number now falls in line with those areas under the new restrictions. Additionally, further lockdown easing including the reopening of casinos, beauticians, and bowling alleys have been postponed until at least the 15th August, with Chris Whitty (chief medical officer for the UK) citing that we may have reached the limit in terms of easing restrictions.

In the UK, each of the four constituent countries are allowed to ease restrictions independently of the other 3, with Scotland's first minister Nicola Sturgeon advising people from Scotland to not travel to the north west of England. The tightening of lockdown restrictions in parts of the UK have come under fire as they were announced both late at night and on Twitter with little clarity (running theme here in the UK) as to what the restrictions exactly entailed.

My county of approximately 45,000 has seen an increase of 127 cases in 31 days.  Took us 95 days to get to 101 cases (March 27th to June 30th).

And the locals are in an uproar that they have to wear a mask in Wal-Mart and Lowe's or the other grocery store in town not to mention the small shops that are just trying to stay afloat.  The entitlement attitude  of "you can't tell me what to do" is strong around here and it is ticking me off. 

Totally understandable why Ohio has had a uptick in cases this month especially in the more rural areas of the state (like where I am).

The governor made the decision to let county fairs happen with strict guidelines.  Well, guess what, those guidelines were not followed by many attendees and some of them have come down with COVID.  So he pulled back on those guidelines and only the junior fair (animal showing and 4-H projects) will be allowed with some food vendors for our fair that starts August 2nd. No entertainment or carnival rides/activities.  The fools around here instead of getting upset with those who didn't follow guidelines at those earlier fairs are blaming the governor.  It's not his fault people don't follow the rules.

I'm sick of those that don't take it seriously which does include extended family members.  Needless to say I have avoided them.

Update from Argentina:

The current phase of the quarantine in the Metropolitan Area of Buenos Aires will extend until August 16th; was announced this noon. In the rest of the country, as some of the number of cases have increased again, the local goverment are the ones who will decide if they return to previous phases o continue with the current ones.

Also - and as it was told in the article I posted previously - the ammount of cases in the city of Buenos Aires are in an average of 1.000/1.200 cases daily (what is still a high number); but the good news - according to the local authorities - is that the R0 number is now 1.03, what apparently reflects a steady descend in the last weeks.

The only way we are going to get control of this in the US is to also institute some restrictions as well.

But with NO effective leadership right now it won't happen. So more will die.

If you have some restrictions, be glad...you are saving lives.

Unfortunately Peach, even with restrictions, people aren't doing what is needed.  Instead they call all levels of leadership "morons" and blow them off.

I'm seeing it in my area.  There is no reason we needed to have as many cases as we've got because in the beginning we were doing good.  But more than doubling the number of cases in 31 days is not acceptable.  Restrictions are still there although people seem to forget that the mass gathering order still exists in Ohio.

Not to mention that people think it is OK to go to the hot spot of the nation for vacation. (my neighbors who are now home)  Contact tracing has shown in Ohio that many cases have been because of travel or gatherings of more than 10 people.  A school in a county in the eastern part of the state still sent 40-some students/chaperones on a school sponsored trip in June to South Carolina.  28 of them contracted COVID.    A funeral for an individual in a county near me has spawned over 20 cases in multiple counties.
