Well… It is official, we here in Luxembourg are having a second Covid-19 wave.
Maybe we started our deconfinement too early and maybe, opening schools for everyone was not the wisest decision. Schools started for everyone in their original classes again two weeks ago. Before that, classes we’re broken up in two groups and each group went to school for one week and was homeschooled for the next. Now, as of today, the kids are on their summer break which will last until mid-September. I believe, that there is a correlation between the rising numbers and our kids being in their full classes again. Though, our minister of education never tired to say that schools are not a place were kids get infected, they get infected in private…. It always sounded as if there is an invisible dome protecting the schools from the virus. But the fact remains that if one kid was infected in a class, other likely caught it too, brought it home and from there siblings and/or parents spread it further.
Colour me worried… Finally, I am worried about this too. That said, I wear (and always wore) my mask, kept and keep my distances, I wash my hands and use sanitizer. I never wear the same clothes twice and wear different clothes to work than in private (meaning: I change before I leave work). Add to that, ever since restaurants, bars, and pubs opened, I only went twice…
Luxembourg is considered a land of risk. Arguments are that we are testing a lot – 12144 tests today, and 163 were positive. I sounds like nothing at all, but it is enough to make our country panic.
My fridge is empty and my freezer too. There is no stock in food in my house. I guess, I need to stock up again on some simple things. I don’t even have any pasta left at home. (But, I have an xxl package of bog roll ☺☺).
That was that!
