Another day into the third month of social distancing. It is in agreement that the number of new cases have plateaued, finally. Nearly 3 million people in Saigon have been vaccinated including foreigners. We should see the numbers drop significantly in the next couple of weeks. I doubt they will drop this week, I am being more pessimistic now. Other countries would have flattened the curve by now but the D variant seems to be out of control around the world.
Life behind the gate
My alleyway is "protected" by a gate. Nobody can enter so we have been lucky, not a single case. We are sort of the safe zone in the city right now.
If we leave the alleyway, on our return we need to spray our hands with the following sanitizer. Once I get to the house, I will again spray them with more hand sanitizers. I keep my mask on, enter my room and then wash my hands thoroughly. Best defense against an infection.
All deliveries are with Marts such as Grabmart. They cannot enter the gate. There are more supplies in the city now since the government started using QR codes to keep track of trucks. I can get my sandwiches which is something I eat once or twice a week now.
As I mentioned in the caption above, just across the alleyway is another one that has been locked for over two months now. They have over 200 cases on that side. Co Bac and Co Giang streets are both blocked as well.
Lets hope tomorrow is a better day.
