How is the virus being handled in your part of the world? Here, in Mauritius we have been Covid free for a few months and not even really wearing masks most of the time. However, we are completely isolated physically from the world with very few flights mainly for cargo and repatriation. Our economy is taking a huge hit as 24% of the GDP depends on external tourism and our competitors like the Seychelles and Maldives are opening their borders. We are quite divided on whether to open or not because we have been spared with very few deaths (10) out of less than 350 infections. I think we should reopen but lots of people are against especially with 2nd waves in a number of geographies.

Maybe we should be like you, here I feel we are over cautious, dont even know what we are waiting for to open the borders (in a controlled manner of course)

The majority of people do give a xxxx in the uk but there's always the few. The debate going on here is opening up the economy vs indefinite lockdown. Much of the country is quite happy being paid for sitting at home or so called working from home. However much of the country is living in a dream world and haven't woken up to the fact in the autumn there is going to be a jobs bloodbath. One we might never recover from.

I have retired now so it doesn't affect me personally but my opinion is we should manage corvid locally and prioritise getting the economy going.

As for Mauritius I would imagine many businesses are suffering given the islands reliance on tourism.

The economy is significantly impacted as 24% of the GDP is tourism dependent and a big portion of the population is against opening borders as they feel protected as the country is Covid free for a couple of months. The government is going with the crowd instead of taking the tough decision which is not simple I must admit.

Over cautious is what we needed to be but the attitude of alot of people over here is beyond me.
