โ–ซ๏ธ Snowball effect (ยฉ Jean-Michel Salvador)

Published on 20/01/2021
This is the Belgian story, but not necessarily funny, of a giant cluster launched by a mother who went skiing in Switzerland. She contaminated her daughter, who contaminated her classmates, who in turn contaminated her classmates, who in turn contaminated herโ€ฆ

The affair revealed by the Belgian media 7 sur 7 and relayed by the Capital website goes back to the end of last year, during the Christmas period. A Belgian mother living in Edegem took advantage of the holidays to go skiing in Switzerland. She returns from her alpine getaway with the coronavirus, a British variant, in her luggage. Of course, it would seem that this carefree mother did not respect the instructions concerning the “red zones” identified by Belgium, i.e. to respect an isolation period of 7 days, nor did she deign to carry out the recommended PCR tests. A carefree attitude with incredible consequences.

The snowball effect. After a few days, she presents the first symptoms and performs an initial test, which turns out to be negative. The second test, carried out a week later, confirms that the mother is infected. Of course, her daughter did not escape it, but she has already returned to school and to her father’s house. All contaminated and forced to quarantine.
But the story doesn’t end there, and like dominoes, the contaminations follow one another. The little girl infected a classmate, who infected her mother, a teacher, who transmitted the virus to her pupilsโ€ฆ The snowball effect now concerns two Belgian schools, both forced to close as a precautionary measure.
On arrival, from pupils to teachers, parents to children, the virus brought back from a short trip to Switzerland infected 5000 people, including the mayor of Edegem: “We agreed not to argue. But if everyone respected the rules, we wouldn’t be in such a situation. Thousands of people have to remain in quarantine because of the negligence of some,” said the elected representative, who fears that the epidemic could soar again in his commune, which has been placed under quarantine this week.

โ–ซ๏ธ Diet Coke

As soon as Joe Biden’s suitcases are placed in the White House, he already removes all traces of Donald Trump. Two days after his inauguration, the new president got rid of the “Diet Coke” button used by his predecessor in the Oval Office.

On Twitter, American journalist Tom Newton Dunn explained that Donald Trump used the button to get a Diet Coke to him as soon as possible. “President Biden has removed the Diet Coke button. When we interviewed Donald Trump in 2019, we were fascinated by this little red button. At one point, Trump pressed it, and a butler quickly brought him a Diet Coke on a silver tray. The button has now disappeared,” he wrote.

โ–ซ๏ธ World Endurance Championship

Many of you are possibly aware that I am a fan of Endurance racing and in particular the Le Mans 24 hours which I started attending in 1969. I have not missed many June trips to Le Mans over the years. Last year ws cancelled in June and postponned to Septembre but without spectators. Thank you Corona Virus. Nobody really knows what will happen this year but some how I am getting in the mood and have started updating my web page on the championship with the latest news.

โ–ซ๏ธ Robert Burns day

I think last year’s Burn’s celebration was the last time before the 1st confinement was announced.

But we ended up on a different path. Not too worry, turned around and got home after a fairly fast 8.9km in time to avoid the rain.
