The news here in the UK and around the world continues to be grim. 😦
In the spate of a few days, London moved from Tier 2 to Tier 4 and Christmas was effectively cancelled.
Then we learned about the new variant of Covid-19 and most of Europe, following France’s lead, closed their borders to the UK.
I decided to include a few speech bubbles recording the things politicians have said since the beginning of the pandemic.
More speech bubbles and details of how 43% of the population would be under Tier 4 restrictions come Boxing Day (26th December).
News broke of our beloved Chelsea Pensioners receiving the vaccine. The gentleman in the photo is a 97-year-old D-Day Veteran. 🙂 And the stay-at-home Christmas.
We ended 2020 with more hopeful news re vaccines and grim news re the number of new infections and Covid-related deaths.. We began 2021 with the grimmer news of another National Lockdown for England, a stay-at-home order and the announcement that schools would not reopen after the Christmas break.
