Our Corona diary, week 4

Week 4 starts with the announcement of the Austrian government how to open up the shops step by step to reboot the economy. We went for a hike while listening to the news on our tiny radio communication device ...

After the Austrian decision to open up economy, all around Europe the discussion about rebooting of the economy starts. Switzerland decided to open up businesses from end of April, Germany did not decide on a specific date yet but is in intense talks. In Italy, France and Spain the numbers of infected and deaths are going down, but these countries are far away of normal life.

We will still have for sure a long lasting period of restricted movement inside the country borders and for sure no possibility to travel to international touristic locations. A very impressive number of showing the current situation is the reduction of holiday and business flight traffic of 95% in Europe.

So we use the nice weather and go for another hike to "Falkensteiner Hütte". What a nice adventure and sunset!

The Corona numbers world wide, USA leading the field by far with more then half a million, Austria No. 16 with about 14.000 infected. 



Lets see what week 5 of self isolation will bring. Here in Austria more then 60% of all shops will open up again by next week. Only shops bigger than 400 sqm and shopping centres will stay closed.
Let´s hope the best!
