Singapore, considered as one of the gold standards for how to tackle the corona virus successfully, seems to finally lose control. It struggles not to get toppled by the feared boomerang effect of the virus'S second wave attack.

That is the problem: we buy time with lock down and and isolation and quarantining, but we do not heal the desease. We just buy time, and need to hold out until a vaccine is available.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is "improving" after two nights in intensive care with coronavirus, Chancellor Rishi Sunak has said.

The chancellor said Mr Johnson was "sitting up in bed and engaging positively with the clinical team".

Good news to my ears ... it's so hard to pray for one person when so many have needs, but I know all of England had his back

I'm not so sure the same could be said of Scotland

Wow! If you were greedy and grabbed a lot of N95 mask you are out of luck, uh?

This new way of life in LA sounds like it might grow to other counties, other states until it is common law, which in turn means the lock downs/shut downs,
whatever you call them will be extended even after the curfew's so to speak.

April 30th will probably see another extension with new rules like you have to pass the new 45 minute virus test that says your okay to work

"What did the perpetrator look like mam?" - "I dunno, they were wearing a mask!"

£750m to be split between small local charities, including hospices, and bigger organisations such as Oxfam and Age UK.

Total number of deaths in UK hospitals from coronavirus rises to 7,097 - a record increase of 938 in a day.

UK PM Boris Johnson remains in intensive care but is sitting up and engaging with clinical team, Mr Sunak says.

Deaths in Spain rise for a second consecutive day, to 14,555

There are more than 1.4 million confirmed cases worldwide.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan says of the UK: "We are nowhere near lifting the lockdown"

Chinese city of Wuhan, where outbreak began, allows people to leave for first time since lockdown began in January.

UK police tipped off over lockdown breaches

Crimestoppers, a UK crime-fighting charity, has passed on over 500 tip-offs to police about people breaking lockdown rules.

The anonymous service says it has received thousands of calls and emails relating to breaches of the restrictions but is only informing police about the most serious cases.

They include threats to infect or cough at people and parties being planned on social media.

Crimestoppers has also informed police about reports that pubs and restaurants have been operating.

Last week, it tipped off police 298 times - double the number the previous week.

Now, think about it for a minute. This is Containment 101, the employees get furnished with masks and gloves because they have to be there if the store is open. For the customers, its still an option and you don't know if they even know how to wear a mask.
I'm OK with this.

In Iowa, its still the wild wild west.
If you want to show up buck-###ed naked and sneezing, go for it.

According to the Danish health authorities this step by the Danish government is to get these kids infected.

I think the reason to this could be -
Kids have to highest chance for surviving this corona and it will infect us all, beside it will return this autumn and then it's good if the kids and our young people have developed an immunity towards this corona infection.

Country like Denmark can't effort another shutdown of the society as we are experience right now.

I think many countries are eager to get people back to past routines as soon as possible.

Also you might find this useful. It has most countries and all U.S. COVID forecasts and projections. https://covid19.healthdata.org/denmark

Things appear to be looking better all around for some. But the fat lady hasn't started singing yet.

The Danes are really on the move-Have seen hundreds of bulletins and comments where parents are angry, having something to say about this step by the Danish government.

Which is funny and here is the reason

During the epidemic in Denmark i could see on friends and friends walls a picture showing the leader of Danish Serum institute with a text below
In the end of this text it is written.

"When he says jump. You do not questioning his order, you only reply with how high"
And now the same people is questioning his command.

Secondly.
The government have also decided to test important people to the society to see if they have developed anti-something, if so they can go back to their job or continue.

Perhaps not in your country or my country Markus, but in many 3rd world countries there will be riots for food, people demanding the government to give them food and protection from this virus Covid-19 that is causing the lockdowns.

3rd world countries.

I would not be surprised if the next epicentrum for this corona virus will be Africa.

Right now it is New York.
