How are things in Germany with the Corvid-19 situation? It's not too bad in my area of Los Angeles, but we have only been out of the house for quick trips to buy food for 8 or 9 weeks now.
FACTS has been in decline for some years now, but a few people still post, and others drop in occasionally without posting. To see who has been online here recently, click "Members" on the menu strip at the top of the page, then click "Last Online" at the top of the member list.
I had a look at the members page - yeah, it does look a bit like a ghost town. But, hey, it's been 20 years, hasn't it?
We went into lock-down in mid-March. You could go out for essential shopping and exercise (although all playgrounds were closed). As long as you weren't congregating in groups, it didn't seem to matter how much time you spent outside your home. In addition to the people you lived with, you were allowed one other social contact. So the lock-down rules weren't as harsh as in Italy or China.
For the most part people here have followed the social distancing rules, including wearing masks, and, as a result, the curve has gone all the way back down to early March levels. In my county there hasn't been a new case in several days.
About three weeks ago, things started to open up - but with new rules. Stores limit the number of people allowed inside at a time, you have to stand 1.5 - 2 meters apart in the cashier's line, most people wear masks in grocery stores, hand purifiers are everywhere. No one (or only a very few) is behaving like their rights have been taken away from them.
Germany has partially reopened its borders with Switzerland, France, Austria and other EU countries (not sure if it reopened its border with Poland, where Cornoavirus is less under control).
The government had offered financial assistance to people who have been economically affected by the virus - but, on the other hand, there were already mechanisms built into the social infrastructure which had already been paid for that helped mitigate the economic affects. As is the case everywhere though, it is the people who earn less, who work in service positions, or who are self-employed or freelancing who are hurting the most.
If I were to judge on the basis of what I've seen and read about what is happening in parts of the US, I would say the situation here is much saner, and much more under control.
