Cyprus has been a success, certainly compared to the UK
 

Not really, the place is FUBAR... Time will tell obvs.

But IMHO locking people indoors for months on end, demanding they request permission to leave their homes once a day, enforcing a curfew and destroying the economy is not really 'success'...  noooo:

I posted on a forum here a while back that the danger of Lockdown and scaring the population to death is that Lockdown becomes the default 'solution' to the next outbreak of flu... There are still people here who are terrified to go out, who buy on-line and sanitise the shopping when it arrives...  noooo:

Our favourite restaurant in Epi has closed forever... So that is the owner, his wife, four or five staff, the landlord, the guy that supplied the wine, the guy that supplied the food, the electricity company - all impacted... Imagine that multiplied all over the island...  noooo:

Look at Apey and all the other DJs, the hotels and all the restaurants that rely on the 'Summer Season' to maintain them throughout the year...

As I said, time will tell - but if (as I suspect) this turns out to be nothing more than a nasty dose of flu then Cyprus certainly won't have been a success - nor will any other country that FUBARed their economy because of it...

Here we go, more evidence of the success of Cyprus with new rules introduced today...  ::)

Quote
1 / It is mandatory to use mask by the general population in closed busy areas (e.g. shopping centers, banks, supermarkets, hospitals, churches, etc) with a penalty of 300.

2 / Sampling checks at airports are increasing from 600 a day to 1,000, with emphasis on Cypriots returning from leisure trips (holidays), since it has shown that a large percentage of cases comes from Cypriots with travel history.

3 / It is recommended to nurses, private and public, and to nursing homes to strict respect visits and if possible to restrict them to the minimum possible.

4 / Restriction of completeness to 50 % in Public Transport (buses) is restored.

5 / Police control of people who should be put into self-restriction when coming from Class C countries, or when they are close case contacts. In consultation with the competent authorities, a daily compliance check will be carried out on these persons.

6 / Intensified controls and surveillance in businesses, catering areas and other premises by the competent authorities with explicit instructions for zero tolerance.


In addition to the above, and in terms of Limassol and after the latest developments, in the effort to reduce the outbreaks and breakdown of transmission chains identified, the following measures were decided and entered into force today at midnight:

1 / Restore the limitation of the maximum number of 10 people to social gatherings.

2 / Restore the limitation of the maximum number of people to catering premises to 75 persons indoors and 150 persons outdoors, regardless of square meters.

3 / Churches determine the presence of people at the base of square meters depending on the protocol, which will not exceed 75 people.
All the above measures regarding Limassol will be in force for three weeks.

I reckon Lockdown again by mid August... noooo:

Second wave gubbernment chaos here.Stay at home but go the pub and have some restaurant discounts and wear mask sometimes! Wankers!  Dominic Cummings can take his infected family on holiday but no one else can! Wankers.

It is going to be worse in October onwards,especially as idiots get careless. I shall be doing a personal lockdown. I also now kick twats in shops who don't wear masks. They are selfish twats.

It's going to get worse come the end of summer anyway, less sun means less UV to knacker the virus RNA when it's in the air so there is going to be the standard local gubbernment panic planning which probably means loads of town/city/regional lockdowns.   noooo:
