Meanwhile in #France,
"the peak of this second wave is over"

(according to the President in his Adress to the Nation):
Wait... "the peak is over" doesn´t mean "it´s back to normal"!

Confinement will only fall on December 15,
if there´s less than 5.000 new cases a day.
(today it´s ~9.000).

France is disappointed.🙁

Although they certainly can make it happen.
Meanwhile in #Switzerland:
(excess mortality of the second wave is significant)

Good news: fastest decrease in infections happens in the worst hit areas now.

As #COVID19 cases are found to spread, #Melbourne (city of ~5 million) tries to contain them by going into #Lockdown.
(The interview features the idea of a dedicated #Quarantine building - that would actually help, I guess)...
"People acting as if the pandemic was over was 'not the answer, it is part of the problem' ".

"The virus had leaked from postcodes already under the stay-at-home orders to other parts of #Melbourne."
(and beyond, it is feared).
Due to #Melbourne's outbreak, neighbouring South Australia is about to completely close it's borders to #Victoria.

(Nearly) no exceptions. And those essential few who are allowed in, will have to wear facemasks the entire time...

Vorpommern-Greifswald district (where rejections of #Gütersloh residents took place, yesterday)
has specific rules:
"Those who return from international risk areas (out of Germany) or whose Corona-Warning App has alerted them, need to report to authorites" Image
In fact, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern's Corona-ordinance really prohibits entry of people from international risk areas AND german risk areas as well.
It's just not prominently featured on their websites.

(Overlooked that myself, hence deleted earlier tweet)… Image
People from #Gütersloh district may have to scrap all their holiday plans anyway...

An official #Lockdown is just being announced for the entire district.
(for one week, as of now)

Next month I’m going on a railway adventure, travelling from Edinburgh to Hong Kong by train. 🚂

8,246 miles including part of the Trans-Siberian, and the Trans-Mongolian railway. I can’t wait!!!…

#edinburghtohk #lessflying #transsiberian #traintravel
I’m off - Day 1 of my #trainadventure travelling from Edinburgh to Hong Kong! 🚂

Train #1 from Edinburgh to London was cancelled 😕 so I get two trains instead of one... first to Carlisle on @TPExpressTrains, next stop London with @AvantiWestCoast 🙂

Up early at pretty London St Pancras for the @Eurostar to Amsterdam 🇬🇧 🇳🇱

The 3rd train on my epic train journey from Edinburgh to Hong Kong! 🚂

Taking the #Eurostar a few days before yet another #Brexit deadline that will be extended. 25 years ago, some of our British friends mourned the “end of insularity” - because of a tunnel linking them to the “Continent” /1
Others welcomed it but overestimated its effects. A @guardian editorial in 1994 stated: “With every British journey closer to the heart of Europe, Europe gets closer to the heart of the British: with inexorable and hopeful consequences for us all.” /2
This was wrong - a tunnel does not change national identity per se. It allows for more mobility & increased travel opportunities for citizens that eventually fosters values of openness & tolerance. Sth that every democracy should embrace. Despite Brexit. /3

Brexit moron just cost me £375: Speculated Brexit protestor spent night on roof of St Pancras ➡️ #Eurostar delayed ➡️ Missed my flight ➡️ £375 airline fee to reschedule. Not a political statement, just collateral cost of an idiot with a flag on a roof. 1/n…
2/n: Frustrating that @EurostarUK didn't forewarn passengers this morning (at least me), even tho, according to one fellow passenger, protestor was trespassing since LAST NIGHT. Passenger's train last night was cancelled. My family got up at 4am to take me to St Pancras.
3/n: Even more frustrating is that Eurostar's website indicates they won't compensate domino-effect travel expenses. RT/Like to encourage them to defy expectations! #EurostarDelays…
