I watch the figures worldwide, especially Australia and the Philippines. The rest of the word also. Australia had its first death in over a month, rising infections also in Victoria, not good. New lock downs and restrictions there, no different to PH. (Cebu) with the rise/escalating infections here and the opening up of the economy, the rise in cases here PH. is a worry and a constant death rate is certainly worth observing.
We went for a drive late afternoon yesterday to 4 different sari stores to buy Uling for the BBQ marinated pork,,,,,,, no mask, no road blocks nor permission for a 60 Y/O to drive around town, My first time behind the wheel since i arrived back mid March, was weird to drive again as it was pouring. While we have had 1 recent case in La Union in a month or more I fear the numbers will rise (second wave) with the release of lockdowns with other Provinces.
BTW the winners/losers here are evidenced around the world and I'm more than happy to stay in PH. and dearly hope restrictions are reinforced to protect the lives of those living here but feel I/we would be safer in OZ. In the mean time We will observe and stay safe.

While restrictions appear to be lifted here in La Union We, Ben and I are still operating on the old ECQ and will continue to do so until the smoke blows away.

Breaking News, the new case in Naguilian recovered yesterday and was released from hospital.
Early days yet for this pandemic.

Only my thoughts.

Cheers, Steve.

I just hope that they do not extend the same restrictions to the complete island because as far as I know, the cases are all in the city and not in the surrounding province.

However, since I have a pass, I can easily go for essential reasons and unless they go to MECQ I will not be able to go diving anyway so it will not make much difference to me.

I will make sure that by 1 July l will be stocked up and can go a couple weeks before needing to resupply.
Surrounding provincial area's will be affected.

It is just to bad that the quarantine was not strictly followed when it would have made more of a difference. Some places were much more strict than others and given the lifestyles of a lot of people here quarantine would have been difficult to enforce anyway.

The Philippines has not been under longer and stricter (on paper anyway) quarantine than just about anywhere in the world and it has not worked as well as other places that were better able to follow the lockdown.
