Local Confinement Daily – January 10th 2021

Day 72 of the second confinement period


The comic book is being worked on


Another Great Classic There was on Friday night on ARTE television a documentary on Eric Clapton followed by a concert from 2005 in the Albert Hall, London. Well worth a watch if yoou like music. Being on ARTE, you can get the commentary in German if this is your prefered language to French. Here is the link (click here for German) for the TV program. The concert can be found here. The 1st piece is enough to send shivers down my spine. Blues at its best.

▫️Normally and for the past week or so, the daily vaccinations data is released by the Health Ministry every evening by 9pm. No such luck yesterday and I even cannot access the ministry’s web site this morning. I wonder what is going on.

The Bouches-du-Rhône, Cher, Côte-d’Or, Allier, Haut-Rhin and Var joined Bas-Rhin and Vaucluse, already officially announced on Friday. In the afternoon, the Prime Minister, Jean Castex, had confirmed that the curfew would be brought forward in eight new departments. It will come into force from Sunday 10 January, except in the Var, where it will be Tuesday 12 January.

▫️ The United States suspends customs reprisals against France

These 25% taxes, which were to affect $1.3 billion in annual imports, were decided in response to Paris’ decision to tax certain American digital companies such as Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon. They were to take effect on Wednesday. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, their suspension will allow the United States to engage in a targeted response.
