The numbers are looking better this week – the curfew seems to work, and the peak infection rates from the Easter break seem to be waning.
As restrictions will begin to ease, we need to think about our fear of going out and meeting people again (FOGO) – it won’t be easy, I guess.
In the long run, my take on this pandemic is that much like HIV has taught us about wearing a condom, Sars-CoV-2 will teach us about wearing an FFP2 mask in certain situations.
No big deal.
