Day 177 of self-isolation - Here we go again

Here we go again

UK new deaths are up to 32, new cases 2460. That's the third day with a higher number of cases, so I think we're seeing a surge. 

Bolton is under strict lockdown now. All hospitality outlets are takeaway only and meetings with different families are not allowed. Bolton has 1200 cases per million (compared to a UK average of 40 per million).

In the rest of the UK, social gatherings of more than six people will be illegal, whether indoors or outdoors. Weddings, funerals, schools, workplaces and team sports are exempt.

Spain new deaths are up to 78, new cases 8964. France new deaths are up to 38, new cases 6544. Italy is still looking OK. You could call this the "Second wave" that people were worried about, but I'm more concerned about when the cold weather comes.

In the summer, people are outdoors; in the winter, we huddle indoors. Huddling indoors is what this virus loves, because it's transmitted via our exhalations.
