DAY 47

Wednesday 29/04/2020

Since finally granting us the right to do exercise this coming weekend, the government have laid out the four stages that the country must go through in order to reach the ‘new normal’ by the end of June. Contrary to popular speculation in recent weeks, the government’s plan is to prioritise the re-opening of bars and restaurants over the movement of people around the country. Naturally a lot of my students have expressed outrage at the audacity of the government to suggest the population should have a drink in their local before visiting their family who they haven’t seen for almost two months. To me it makes perfect sense to restrict travel because this should, in theory (heavy emphasis on this), allow the inevitable second waves of the virus to remain localised and prevent a nationwide lockdown being implemented again. 

According to the government, the Spanish population should be back to cerveza drinking, plaza lounging ways within a couple of weeks, albeit at a severely restricted number.  I’m convinced that a crisp beer in the sun with friends will be enough for most people to put family members, who will also undoubtedly be doing exactly the same, to the back of their minds.
