Interesting post in the Guardian today. An English national living in Wuhan is saying the lifting of restrictions is not what the world thinks. He claims they have to use a special app before leaving their buildings, only certain people can work and travel, Bars, restaurants and schools are closed and unless you have a special reason you can only be out for an hour. His point is that anyone thinking 3 months is the length of time before life returns to normal might be in for a shock

Heard something similar on World Service this morning. Restrictions will probably get tighter again now that China is seeing a rise in new cases once more (though mainly from people returning from overseas).

A lot of countries including Russia, Israel and the UK seem to be using or considering the use of phone apps to track people's movements. Sounds like a particularly scary episode of Black Mirror!

Geo localisation is being considered by the Spanish government too as a way of keeping track of people who test positive and are supposed to self confine. Only being considered at the moment

Yes the phone app seems to be gaining momentum. I think the China thing shows that this is not something that will just stop after 3 months. I think the UK still hasn't grasped what we already know in Spain. For instance, last week the UK was talking about things getting better and today they seem to be really anxious that thd restrictions will continue. Yesterday it was suggested that the UK will be the hardest hit of all the European countries!!! Can you believe that.

Or do you mean recession of the economy...?

Well, they've started to talk about a possible lifting of some restrictions in Spain after the 26th of April. NOTE: Talking about only and not specifying in any way what type of relaxing of the rules. This I heard on TVE news.
However, this news was run alongside the news that deaths in Spain (and probably all other countries) have been vastly undercounted and there are more than likely thousands of deaths that have not been included in the figures as yet. This is not denied, but is a result of systems being overloaded and differences in the way of doing things between one comunidad and another. Of course the opposition has picked up on this and is like a dog with a poisonous bone between its teeth trying to get all it can out of the situation. Investigations have been, or are going to be opened into this area. Perhaps this news will impact on the news of a possible lifting of some restrictions after April 26th, but besides number of deaths, number of new cases etc the government is under pressure to get the country up and running economically asap.
Also mentioned on the news was the possibility of schools going back in May when previously it was thought that they wouldn't go back. Note: This is only being discussed at the moment. I think it's a possibility just because if we get the kids out of the way people can work more, even if it's from home.
Let's see what they say tomorrow...

There was a piece on TV last night about the possible retrieving of many many bodies from houses and flats where people live on their own on isolated estates etc. That’s scary.
