    Out of control
    What measures are being taken? (or enforced more equitably across all residents AND tourists).

    Yes, masks in schools should be mandatory.

    That UK ‘green-watch’ listing is under scrutiny now I’d imagine.

  2. People,, Where are these coming from? It is frightening. This shit is serious take heed we cannot see the virus but it is out there.

  3. Maybe they can just gas everyone, like the protestors yesterday, and make us all stay home where we safe from da COVID. Oh, I’d best be careful, since Cutie wanna make it illegal to say anything negative. We in banana republic now!
