    Humans have been around and survived multiple pandemics through herd immunity via infection. A vaccine can get us there quicker with less of the negative effects of active disease. Masking and social distancing is a good method to slow down spread but will never be a permanent solution as humans are social beings that rely on body posture and facial expressions in addition to verbal language to communicate and thrive.

    Human will of course survive this relentless onslaught.

    In the meantime there is still political bickering particularly in Europe.

    Greek politicians bicker over Russia's Sputnik V vaccine

    Brexit row: UK orders EU to 'stop bickering' - end vaccine row NOW
    Pretty normal after a messy divorce!

    What have we learnt for this tragic episode?
    Prevention is better than cure?
    Easy said than done.
    Look at Brazil, USA and India(catching up fast).

    SB is just another social media, no difference from FB etc.

    Has the situation improved 13 months later and with the availability of several vaccines(for few months already)?
    The end of this tunnel still seems so far far away!

    Thailand reports 2,839 new coronavirus cases, 8 new deaths
    New record for Thailand.

    Indonesia, Malaysia and Philippines are no better!

    Hong Kong-Singapore travel bubble announcement delayed

    Uncertainty between HK and Singapore.

    Where can I travel to from HK?
    Around Asia only Maldives is available without too much of restriction.

    Taiwan(Republic of China) has been dealing with the disease successfully but the recent sudden surge in infection has got the Island State worried.

    3 months has passed since my last post on the topic. And only Phuket has opened its door to fully vaccinated visitors but with the recent surge on the island, I believe only foreign tourists are allowed in(could be wrong here).
    There are plenty of info on line for everyone to check.
    The picture is still pretty grim but....

    Indonesia easing restrictions as new COVID-19 cases drop to lowest since June
