We are in Spain. We are in lockdown.
It’s a bit scary now it’s happened. We are as safe here as anywhere but it’s eerily quiet. Went for what turned out to be our last walk this afternoon. All bars, restaurants, schools, parks are closed for 15 days. Everyone is only allowed to leave home for the supermarket or pharmacy. A Spanish neighbour told us it was on the local radio that police will be on the streets checking why anyone is out and about. So no walks along the paseo or anywhere really. We have 2 big supermarkets right over the road in each direction plus we have supplies in - there are only the two of us.
We have private medical insurance. I just have a silly slight anxiety - what if one of us feels ill? I will freak out if I wake in a night with a fever. It is much bigger now this has happened.
This is not some mild virus. France is on lockdown too tonight apparently. This is more than just bluddy flu with governments taking this kind of action. I fear the worse and admit to feeling a bit scared. I worry governments aren’t telling the whole story because of panic.
I just feel low-level scared right now. I’m fine if we stay well. The whole concept of lockdown is like some sci-fi film when it happens. No cars on the road, no pedestrians. I can hear a dog barking. All these houses and apartments all around us and we are all shut inside, worrying.
