  1. Fun times ahead! Vegetable prices are already through the roof here. And those polar plunges after early warmth will do the same for fruit. Would bet there is another one coming in May just to put the final nail in the coffin.
  2. The situation is really dire in Central Europe. We are missing one year worth of precipitation since 2015. The worst drought in 500 years in Czechia.
  3. Central Europe is really heading towards disaster. Another year with no rain, just relentless sun.
  4. So colleague of my mum (they were together on Friday) tested positive. So quarantine for her for two weeks. I had seen my mum on Saturday and started coughing two days ago. No other symptoms except slight chest tightness so far.
  5. What's up with those numbers from Germany? Something is fishy there, no way the deaths and critical cases are so low right? Ah, I see it's being discussed already.
  6. No, I will be hard on them. When the question was raised in January if we are ready and well stocked they said yes and not to bother them. They outright lied they have a million of face masks and that more are on the way. Two months later and we have nothing.
  7. That's why we are doing it. We know it doesn't protect us but it can protect others if we are sick and do not know about it.
  8. It's a last resort for sure but better than nothing. (PDF) Testing the Efficacy of Homemade Masks: Would They Protect in an Influenza Pandemic?

  9. Our government failed spectacularly. They did absolutely nothing in January. Now, in the middle of the pandemic, they realized they have no face masks, desinfection and only 10 000 respirators in state reserves. We can't go out without a face mask but you can't even buy them anywhere so we have to make them ourselves.
  10. Yep, we have same cases here still testing positive after more than two weeks with no symptoms at all.
  11. Yes. It will be tough but have to manage somehow.
  12. Yep, my depression is mounting up and I feel like I'm one step from a panic attack. Full quarantine from tomorrow here, no going out allowed unless you are going to work or shop so I won't be able to go for a run to clear my head. Damn, crazy times we live in.
  13. That's a lot for Switzerland. Didn't they stop the testing for people with symptoms who do not require medical care?
  14. Ugh, it's exploding over here. We had 150 cases 24 hours ago, 231 now.
  15. I think they update at least twice a day.
