Coronavirus - Taiwan Open July 2021

Isn’t that the truth… My husband joined me in September. We have two floors in our apartment so he quarantined upstairs.
Our parents are in their mid-80’s and our kids were angry we hadn’t visited. When the lockdowns continued, we decided to go home for a month.
I could see the 里長 watching our apartment in addition to the phone monitoring so how do these bastards get away with anything. It never occurred to us to break quarantine, so I’m not understanding why we can’t quarantine at home or at least in the same hotel room.
Because we’d need to pay for separate rooms which are extremely overpriced and in short supply, he’s going to stay in the US until Taiwan gets their shit together. I could try my luck with the government facilities but the thought of paying to be imprisoned at an unknown location is scary.
I’ve gotta get back to work otherwise I’d stay longer in the US.

Wonder if we should increase testing in some areas. I know couple of hospitals where nurses haven’t been tested for over a month. Some of my friends have colleagues who have worked in the Covid wards as well…

You may not be able to reduce quarantine or stop wearing a mask or eat in restaurants or go to the beach but you do get a cute sticker you can post on social media.

No, rational fear for the real situation is.

That’s you. Not everyone.

Taiwan has been put on the UK green list, so we must be doing something right. This means you won’t have to quarantine in the Uk if you go back this summer. Amazing news for some!

Useless info for others!!

Anyways, the same situation as last year starts in Europe. People go on vacation, get back home and spread the delta variant. Cases go up, hospitalization goes up, luckily not as many die, yet. Countries start thinking about limiting or toning down opening.

This is great news.

Only problem is, I can see myself wanting to come back and finding everything’s turned to ratshit in Taiwan.

Except you would likely catch delta in the UK.

not likely, possible though. You could also get vaccinated a lot easier. My parents have been getting mail every two weeks telling me to go get vaccinated.

Interesting comment from Ko today. He believes lockdown measures can only be lifted when you have 80% vaccination!

Now he changes from less than 10 cases a day to this bullshit? He should pull some vaccines out of his ass then!

Far less likely to do so if you’re double vaxed.

It’s the quarantine time when returning to Taiwan that has scuppered my trip home to the UK for the second summer.

I heard some old folks were gaming the system by ripping off their vaccination sticker from their nhi card, so they could double dip on vaccines. Why would they do that?

Israel once made it almost 1 per million, and many people are already fully vaxed .

So it’s really looking like we will need yearly shots for this.
