We cannot say that the Prime Minister did not warn us by declaring a state of health emergency last March. We would have for “several months” to live with health restrictions because of the pandemic.
People were undoubtedly numerous to rethink these prophetic words yesterday, while pointing out to the members of their family bubble that Horacio Arruda seems to have whitened and that the wrinkles have deepened on the face of François Legault. Basically, they seem as disgusted as the rest of the world, which probably explains why we put less heart in customer service when expressing empathy for the confined or sympathy for the confined. relatives of the deceased.
Move up the cursor
There was cause for celebration, but so little for the regions now placed in the orange zone, where COVID-19 is hardly circulating. We fear the arrival on the territory of new variants and, above all, of having to move up the cursor towards containment. The restorers of the major centers are nevertheless anxious to be able to receive in their rooms, too.
Still. This feeling that the end of the tunnel is not approaching, that it is even moving away, it is nagging when we are told that we can go back to shopping, but that we are not close to finding our loved ones. If we had been told that we would be there a year later in March, we would all have protested. Proof that we get used to everything, we already knew, at the time of entering the so-called 28 days of October, that we had more than six months.
In any case, very little to rejoice yesterday, except to know that the sky is clearing in the hospitals. This is fair and good, but for most people the confined routine will remain the same.
