▫️ Third Lockdown – Yes or No

if comparisons are to be made, to make them with the end of October, just before the second containment. At the time, tests were already being carried out on a massive scale and the hospital system was being resized to cope with the epidemic. If we look at the number of people in intensive care between 28 October and 26 January, we can see a near-similarity, with just over 3,000 patients. Quite logically, the occupancy rate is also fairly similar, at around 60%.

The incidence rate, on the other hand, is currently much lower: 210, compared to 486 on the eve of the second confinement. The virulence of the epidemic therefore appears to be less for the moment, even if we are easily exceeding the vigilance threshold set at 50.

The last element to be taken into account is the famous effective R0 or R, which corresponds to the basic reproduction rate of a virus. And which estimates the number of people who can potentially be contaminated by an individual infected by a virus. From 1.38 at the end of October, it has evolved and is now around 1.1 according to the latest available data.

▫️ Which nation is currently, and has been for a fortnight now, the most affected nation in the world (in terms of number of cases in relation to its population) and where the epidemic is progressing the fastest?

Answer: Portugal!

▫️ After Brexit (Β© Le Monde)

As countless travellers from the United Kingdom who have been refused entry to the European Union (EU) in the New Year have discovered to their dismay, the most dramatic consequence of the Brexit is the loss of European citizenship for the British.

On 31 December 2020, 67 million British nationals lost the right to settle and work in the EU and other countries. In the same way, EU citizens have lost these rights in the territories of the United Kingdom. This is the biggest loss of rights in history.


For over forty years, British citizens travelling on business or for tourism or living in continental Europe have enjoyed the status of European citizens in their host countries. The same was true for EU citizens who had settled in the UK over the years. This is the very essence of EU citizenship: the right not to be discriminated against and therefore treated as a national in every Member State of the Union, irrespective of nationality.

A major blow to the rights of all Britons. Unsurprisingly, the value of the UK passport has plummeted from the top 10 to a much poorer place: the rights attached to it are now comparable to those of Argentinean and Brazilian nationalities. Admittedly, UK travellers are still allowed to travel to EU countries without a visa for up to 90 days every 180 days for the time being.


However, this right is not unconditional. Let’s face it: the promise of equality and dignity unconditionally enjoyed by holders of British nationality has, since Brexit, been restricted to the territory of the British Isles only, whereas it extended, until December 2020, to almost the whole of the European continent. Post-Brexit British citizenship status in Europe is now equivalent to that of a Chinese tourist, with the difference that the UK’s territory and economy is not comparable to that of China.
