Italy was supposed to be 100% open during summer. They promised it and indeed we got one week of cafes and restaurants opening again which is a move in the right direction. Well a day ago a neighborhood locked down were Indian field workers live because of ''indian variant'' and they put signs up at the beach near there that you are not allowed to swim in the water. Doesn't really seem to mesh well with moving to 100% open during summer. I'm very skeptical, it only require a handful of their tests to say whatever and full lockdown is back on the menuThat's clearly the agenda here in Spain. Which I predicted last spring already and sure enough they closed down the entire country right after the last summer tourists had left. Having the cake and wanting to eat it too - typical socialists/communists.
We basically get a few months of summer and then the new COVID-21 strains will be hyped starting in late fall. Come to think of it - they have not stopped really since early last fall. Maybe they'll just say fuggit and push it all the way through the summer. I wouldn't put it past them.
