It has been months that we are experiencing this Covid-19 pandemic. And it is has been really tough making it through those hurdles. I remember having anxiety for the whole 3 months of our first lockdown here, I lost my job because my company has been forced to close down. I'm working as a server in a bar btw and all colleagues lost their livelihood too. I don't know how I could have survived those days if my sister didn't give me a part-time job in her work. I'm sharing this to know how all you've been for the past few months and has your local community doing well these days?

There are few cities here in my country that were put on another lockdown due to another surge of infection in their locals. My city on the other hand is very strict with wearing protective masks and shields and curfews right until now when we only getting fewer cases every day.

Like I said a decade ago, another part of the plan is to put some serious strain on all economies as to drain the people to such an extent they'll be more lenient towards new law adjustments that undermine their basic rights. They're discussing mandatory vaccins in my country and having anti-vaxxers lose access to some public- and work spaces.

Luckily for me, I did not lose my job. Only thing that sucks is that I can't go to the gym. I need that for my sanity

well yo, i mean..sorry to hear that like, glad youre pushing through....honestly in my area not much has changed. my villa is about 20 minutes from the city in the middle of two acres of land surrounded by tress towards the outer part of the land. i moved way out here for my safety mostly and privacy. but during this pandemic ive mostly just been chilling at home yo, working on music in my studio, bonding with the girlfriend, drawing her tattoo ideas, watching movies and helping others financially. i have a pool, a weight room, basketball court outside towards the back of the property, my lady gets the groceries since its easier. i dont really have many reasons to leave... but most of my direct interaction outside of my girlfriend these days has been on FaceTime or with the guy over the landscaping crew. though for Halloween i had a get together with some of my friends and family here, we all dressed up and they brought their kids over, it was mainly for the kids since they couldnt trick or treat like that. i have a couple ATV's and the kids were riding them around the property and playing. we cooked, got drunk, ate and played jenga and uno, was a lot of fun

though at the beginning of this month my girlfriends mom moved into my guest house on my property, thats been about the only major change, which is really small in comparison to what others are going through. but she has serious breathing issues yo and was becoming hysterical with the rising cases in the U.S.. her doctor also told her it was a wrap basically if she got COVID. so she was worrying my girlfriend, who convinced me to let her stay here. her mom legitimately thinks im the devil since i met her no matter what i do or say, which i was expecting. but she was causing drama when she first got here and being bossy and harassing my lady over really petty stuff. so i had to respectfully remind her of her place and shes not a problem now. though my maine coon cat scratched her leg up pretty good the other day when she was taking a walk around the property. she was hella dramatic about that and now has been taking walks with rosary beads on and a cross in her hand. other than that i dont really see her much, she'll use the landline to call the main house if she needs something and my girlfriend handles it

but yeah for the most part i live a really isolated life even before COVID. i only have one neighbor and theyre across the street and we both have gates in front of our properties and theyre pretty much secluded. cool older dude, he owns a law firm downtown. we talk if i see him when i check the mail or sometimes him or his wife and kids will wave if we catch each other leaving. but on the left and right of both of our houses theres like an acre/half acre of land between us and those neighbors. i dont interact with a lot of people directly, mainly through my assistant, booking agent or lawyer and only a few people are around me regularly or can contact me directly. COVID hasnt really changed that much for me personally and im grateful. cause a lot of people here are going through it tough

I'm glad that all of you are safe. It's just very sad to hear for those who are greatly affected.

I just randomly found out this article. Try checking this out:

Severely biased American news as usual
hmm..I'm supposed to not agree...


OECD gave us rotten reviews. Aside from the economy, cus the economy is doing well. I know some people in germany see us as a haven cus we don't have any strict lockdowns, but the thing is that I don't think the government has a plan, I just think we are too scared to make bold decisions, they tried to shut some events down after dark, but then people who owned restaurants and stuff found loopholes in the law and started serving alcohol free drinks and stuff so people are still up partying and the economy is going well.

I see. It's a good thing Sweden isn't in a lockdown. One reason being that small businesses aren't going bankrupt, people aren't losing their livelihood and having to depend on the state to help. Which is all part of the plan with the introduction of covid

One more difference between American fake news and that of most European countries is that the news reporters/hosts show a clear opiniated way of talking and facial expressions as seen in the video you shared. In my country they don't do that. They bring the news as it is and in a neutral expression.

I live in Maryland, which is very blue. But our governor is Hogan, a Republican. He did a good job at the very beginning but then he went with the Republican saw of the economy trumping (no pun intended) all, and relaxed too much, leaving the 4 biggest jurisdictions in the lurch including mine. Right now he's doing restaurant and bar closures at 10 pm as if Covid cares what time it is. It's not enough.

I've been teleworking since mid-March and expect to do so until April if not later. We're almost certainly not going back to the office until the vaccine is widely available. So I've been lucky also. My wife's job is somewhat less secure, but she still has it now and she's also been teleworking.

Daily confirmed cases have reached an all-time peak which led to another nation-wide lockdown for the entirety of November. Masks are mandatory in all interior and outside areas.
We coped with the 1st wave of infections surprisingly well, but a large portion of the population apparently was sick (no pun intended) of the pandemic and decided to go about their lives like normal. So we're back to quarantine before things get even more out of hand.

That's probably one of the main reasons why Covid-19 has been peaking high on some of your states. But I think, all will be okay in the US when vaccines become available. I know not all would gladly take a shot but I'm sure covid-19 data will be significantly lower after that.

Everything is going according to plans.. Every time the graph starts coming down, we organize some protest to help jumping back up or decide to flood the market. Masks are to be worn on chin or to keep in your pocket, only to be taken out when you spot some cop ready to fine you... Yep everything is fine.

Oh yeah we have that night curfew thing implemented too in some areas. Yes that will tell corona to behave.
