The Spaniards were frightened and returned to harsh measures.  Spain decided on Wednesday (May 6th) to extend the state of emergency for another two weeks.  That was after it was given free to walks and physical activities.

 Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez called on the parliament, which approved the measure, after easing the restrictions, bringing the number of cases of illness to 3,121 on May 6.  This is after, after the end of April and the beginning of May, they had stabilized at 850 -1,200 new cases per day.  

Spain has registered 256,855 cases of COVID-19 disease and over 26,000 deaths.  The Sanchez government wants to gradually lift the measures of isolation at home and at the same time control the implementation of measures of social distancing and hygiene among the population.  


Home isolation was imposed on March 14 and the state of emergency was due to end on Saturday, May 9, but will be extended until May 24.  Although the opposition claimed that 60 days of state of emergency were illegal, it had to vote on the law for national security.

austrians-stormed-shopping-malls-spaniards-filled-the-streets-after-49-days-of-isolation

The countdown has begun until the great release, announced by the authorities on May 15.  Plans are being made about the operation of restaurants, hotels, rules have been imposed for the reopening of hair salons.  The somewhat normal life is enjoyed by the citizens of other European states. The images of Austrians rushing into shops, or those of Spaniards enjoying sports and walks are as optimistic as they are disturbing.  Authorities warn that the danger has not passed.

 Since 1 May, Austria has further relaxed measures imposed in the context of the coronavirus pandemic and allowed the reopening of hairdressing salons, larger shops and shopping malls.  And the images speak for themselves about the impatience with which people have been waiting for this relaxation. Queues formed in front of clothing stores, sidewalks were crowded, and parks and markets became promenades again.

Austria will further relax its containment measures from May 15, when restaurants and cafes will be reopened and religious services will be able to resume, Chancellor Sebastian Kurz was quoted as saying by Reuters on Tuesday.

Relaxation also is in Spain, one of the hardest-hit countries in terms of deaths due to the new coronavirus.  Over the weekend, in Barcelona, ​​runners and cyclists littered the streets near the beach, where surfers enjoyed the waves.

In Madrid, cyclists and young people on skateboards walked the boulevards, crossing police lanes trying to prevent congestion.  Spain was one of the countries hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic and imposed strict containment measures in March. Sports and recreational activities have been banned in an attempt to stop the spread of coronavirus.

who-said-quarantine-should-be-boring-the-sensational-idea-of-a-mother-to-avoid-routine

Who said that isolation at home during the COVID-19 pandemic must be boring, become a nightmare and a torment?  Young mother Rachael Havenhand woke up locked up in the house with her two 8- and 5-year-old daughters and had a sensational idea.

While most of the countries are starting to each quarantine restrictions, there are still many families that are scared to go out and return to their old life. According to wordmeters.info, there are currently almost 5 million confirmed cases and more than 323.715 deaths, while around 2% of those people infected are either in serious or critical condition.

On top of the list, we see the US with 93,110 deaths, followed by the UK with 35,681 cases and Italy with almost 33.000 victims. The good news is that we see the number of new infections going down, which means that the quarantine restrictions that have been implemented are starting to take effect. 

 

As the gyms and fitness centers are yet to stay closed for the foreseeable future, Rachael Havenhand (28) from Sheffield, South Yorkshire, UK, is a fitness instructor and has been forced to stay home for two weeks now.  Since mid-March, the British government has ordered the closure of cinemas and theaters.

Self-isolated overnight with her two daughters Gabriella (8 years old) and Florence (5 years old), Rachael took her cellphone and bought a lot of "decorative nonsense" from eBay.  She did not spend more than 300 pounds and woke up to the door with over 200 kg of brightly colored objects.

 Helped by the two little girls, the mother got on the job and turned the oppressive and colorful house anost in beige and cream shades into a real Barbie doll house.

"We spend a lot of time in the kitchen because here girls do their homework and here they spend 4-5 hours a day preparing snacks or food.  So I started the decorations with the kitchen, then followed the hall, the living room, the stairs and the bedroom, ”Havenhand told the Daily Mail.

 After the house was filled with colors, the mood of the house changed radically.  The colors he used were pink, purple, green with several shades, blue, cherry and yellow.

And because the entire house has become a toy for the three housewives, they continue to use their creativity to the full and still paint the walls with abstract shapes and childish designs, which, later, Mother Rachael transforms into murals.  Obviously, after the girls fall asleep.

7-industries-that-began-to-grow-rapidly-during-the-pandemic

Bemorepanda found out what to expect after lifting the restrictions. During quarantine we found out industries that are supposed to grow up rapidly during quarantine. We started using service that maybe where unnecessary for us before the pandemic. Here are the industries that are going to have a great success after the quarantine ends.


1. Grocery retail

 No matter what happens, people will be hungry.  In a stressful situation, we buy even more products.  The process of absorption of food calms, and stocks on the shelves alleviate anxiety: suddenly that, and in the house there is buckwheat and potatoes.


2. Courier services

 Grocery stores were allowed not to close; other shopping facilities were less fortunate.  They, as well as public catering establishments, are saved by courier services that take delivery on themselves.  If you leave the house (exclusively on business, of course), you can see how many people in the street are in branded clothes.  They all carry something to someone.  So the increase in revenue and the staff of courier services is a natural consequence of quarantine measures.

3. Online education

 Learning through the Internet is a trend of recent years.  It’s convenient when you don’t need to go to an English tutor through the whole city or you can get a profession sitting on your own couch.  The web has many courses on any subject - from painting to physics.  The pandemic added to the number of online students those who decided to learn something from boredom or who risk losing their profession in a crisis.


4. IT area

 Prior to the advent of coronavirus, this industry did not complain about stagnation, but the pandemic gave it new growth points.  One of them is tools for business.  Due to restrictive measures, conservative spheres, which slowly and reluctantly went online, were forced to accelerate.  Someone met a pandemic with outdated, barely working sites, while someone didn’t have a debug channel at all.  All this required immediate intervention.  This is where IT services came in handy.

5. Home fitness products

 The pandemic dispersed into the apartments and lovers of fitness equipment, and runners, and people involved in horizontal bars.  All of them had to decide the issue of training at home.  Therefore, the demand for compact exercise machines, elastic bands and expanders, weights and dumbbells has grown.

 Interest in online training has increased.  If for fitness centers this is an attempt to upgrade the brand and save at least some kind of income, then for those who initially relied on it, this is a great opportunity for growth.


6. Juridic services

 The demand for legal assistance does not come from a good life.  Unfortunately, the pandemic creates all the conditions to throw people’s problems.  We have to solve issues related to the closure of the business, job cuts, job loss, the use of credit and other banking products.


7. Intimate goods

 On the one hand, the self-isolation regime closed access to new acquaintances and non-binding sex, and even loners would like to be released in a stressful situation.  On the other hand, the couples were locked together.
