    If numbers in Wales stay on the same trajectory then we're not going to make Christmas, let alone January.

    Lockdown was too late, and not for as long as it needed to be. At least England's (half arsed) lockdown is for a month.

    Don’t worry, before then you’ll get ‘Definitely not a lockdown despite the restrictions being almost exactly the same’ to see us through December.

    I went out for a walk today for the first time in months. Ostensibly for mental health... not that I needed it, but the dog was at the groomer's (still an "essential service" apparently) and I got to wander round listening to podcasts for an hour.

    If I hadn't known there was a lockdown I'd never have guessed. I was dodging families on the pavement, shops were busy, cars everywhere. Nothing like it was in March/April.

    But then, maybe they were all getting their dogs groomed and thinking the same thing about me

    It’s incredibly busy in the usual walking spots near me. At times I was having to stop briefly to keep some distance in the middle of a wood in the middle of nowhere. If people have to do something to get out of the house though then there are many more risky things they could be doing than walking in the fresh air. I’m much more annoyed at the cafe’s with loads of seats out and people sitting and eating food, what the actual fuck.

    I'm annoyed at the people who take the whole family shopping. I mean, young kids, fine, cant be helped.

    But why the fuck you need to take your partner and teenage kids and apparently nan along is bewildering.

    Stores should have a "1 adult per household" policy.

    And people who decide to stop have a fucking natter right on the exit can do one too.

    (I feel that way even outside of lockdown)

    They always decide to stop and batter with both parties 2m apart but either side of the footpath, meaning everyone else has to walk in between them.
    Too bloody thick to both stand on the same side leaving the other side clear for others

    I honestly thought they had, with children only going as well if it was essential.

    We go out for walks a lot at the moment but it’s a quiet town and probably see about 20 people in an hour. Infection rates here are almost non existent too which helps.

    In lockdown 1.0 I barely saw any cars or people though. Road traffic definitively seems close to normal.

    Yeah, I think most have that as policy, but there's not much they can do if people choose to ignore that.

    @Not-a-reviewer local roads are almost the same as normal (especially around school start/end) but the motorways have been quieter.

    Wales cases:

    Last week: 6233
    This week: 6129

    So, as with the rest of the uk, whether in lockdown or not, a slow but steady trend downward.

    Went out to one of my walking spots today and it was packed - relatively speaking. Fair enough.

    Then my partner wanted to quickly pop into costa for a coffee take away. Everyone spaced out waiting for orders, masked up. Fair enough.

    In walks in a crusty hippie couple in their 20s/30s, dreadlocks, pushing a pram. No mask. Waiting awkwardly between everyone. We moved and the girl gave us dirty looks.

    Don’t you guys have blogs where you can moan about other people endlessly and prove how much thicker everybody is than you? I’m sure there’s a big market for it.

    There was an anti mask/lockdown march in my town yesterday. My flat overlooks the promenade and I saw it go by. They stopped at one point and chanted some shite.

    Looking at the local news website it seems that police had advised the organisers not to go ahead as it contravened the current laws.

    It just seems that a lot of people don't give a toss.
    The police were walking with the parade just to
    keep an eye on them I guess.

    I'm lucky really, have no need to go out and quite happy to stay in. Loads of things keep me occupied indoors. I go for a walk between 7&8 in the morning doing any shopping I need then.

    I also think it's always worth bearing in mind that unchecked, Covid infections grow exponentially and will double every two weeks... therefore even though it may not seem like it, just having a small reduction is actually a huge success.

    You haven't got a statue of Eric nearby by any chance have you? Sounds awfully similar to an event yesterday where I live too. Morons the lot of them.

    Spray them with tear gas and they'll soon put a mask on.

    Yes, but if you'd looked yesterday you'd have seen the 7 day average was actually up by around 150 per day. It's only because the numbers today were particularly low that it looks better.

    We'll just have to see how it goes, but given the bars and restaurants around here are fucking rammed, I'm not expecting it to stay down for long.

    What's the latest wheeze on Twitter, anti mask twats saying that the occupied hospital beds are slightly lower than last year?

    Is that because they're thick and don't realise non-essential surgeries aren't taking place or is the stat wholly bollocks

    Fewer occupied beds? Is that because there are fewer beds to occupy?
