Covid-19 2nd Wave

I was a bit slow on the uptake for Covid-19 at the start of the year, I must admit; I am not so slow on the realisation that a second wave is almost inevitable.
What I am not so sure about is how I will cope with another lockdown. I wonder how prepared people are for doing it all over again for another six months.
With winter in the offing, the temptation to be outside may not be so strong, and procedures for survival (shopping, medicines etc) are now in place, but the psychological effects may be more of a problem.
So, how prepared are you for another confinement, probably stretching over Christmas?

Re: Covid-19 2nd Wave

I very much doubt that there will be another spike. The Black Death eventually stopped in the Middle Ages, without benefit of even as Asprin. To be honest, another lock-down will not bother us too much. Apart from missing friends and family, we have enjoyed it, especially the lack of traffic on the roads. However, we have experienced excellent weather throughout but, as you say, it might be very different in the Winter !

Re: Covid-19 2nd Wave

We'll be dealing with it, if it happens, as we did this time.........as it unfolds, as it happens, as the situation changes etc.

Very philosophical! I hope I can look at it in the same way a few months in, because at the end of the last bought, I was not enjoying it one bit. I don't know how many years I have left on this planet, but I don't want to spend large parts of it in lockdown, thank you very much!

Re: Covid-19 2nd Wave

Well I think that there will be a second wave of Covid-19. Might not be as severe as the first wave. But I have a gut feeling it will happen.
People here in Turkey mostly seem to ignore the rules and regs. such as wearing face masks and getting close to one another. So I am fully expecting to find us all under lock-down again later this year, don't know when that will happen, maybe earlier than expected?? I hope it doesn't happen though!! Butt007

Re: Covid-19 2nd Wave

We were out and about yesterday, and were surprised how many people were wearing masks, even when on a remote road in the countryside. In the city just about everyone had masks on (except when enjoying a ciggie).

Re: Covid-19 2nd Wave

We all might cope, or have to cope with another lockdown, but could the economy ,business and employment sustain three hits?
