So It Continues.

Strikes me that what I’m waiting for, with this pandemic, is the next surprise.

The coverage so far hasn’t been reassuring, exactly, and it wouldn’t be fair to call it predictable. But it has been trying to fit itself to a story arc. The first lockdown ended, and here in the UK we cut straight to the government’s “Eat Out To Help Out” initiative. Yay! Happy ending!

But that turned out not to be the happy ending after all. That was a superspreader event that helped to push our second wave. Killed the 2020 festive season.
