In the land of fear and darkness, and for underground parties - fines of up to a million rubles, a former Russian woman described a lockdown in London

Fines up to a million rubles for violation of self-isolation from Covid-19

How the British celebrate the New Year holidays during tough self-isolation, in the story of a Siberian woman, who moved to live in the UK

The English don't have a festive mood these days..

Until recently, the British believed, that the coronavirus has receded. In November, the incidence fell by a quarter, plus there is good news about the vaccine. But it has not yet come to mass vaccinations, but there are many more patients. If, eg, 1 December in the UK officially recorded 13,5 thousands of people with covid, the 31 December - 56 thousand. It's all about a new virus strain, which spreads much faster than before.

Authorities increase restrictions, and severely punish malicious violators of self-isolation.

Call on, so that eyewitnesses betray them for the common good. About that, how does London live now, KP-Novosibirsk tells Anna Shlyakhtenko-Lidster, who moved from Siberia to England in 2009 year.

We now have fear and darkness in our country. Until recently, everything was open - shops, Beauty Salons, schools. After strict measures in the spring, everyone thought: finally we can celebrate the New Year and Christmas in peace and joy. But the situation has changed very dramatically.

Everyone was told to stay at home, not meet any relatives, not with friends, try not to leave the house at all. Restaurants closed, the shops. And the news keeps getting worse and worse: new combinations of the virus found in England, it spreads much faster, than the previous version, - Anna tells KP-Novosibirsk.

People don't go outside again.

According to our interlocutor, the nearest hospital is full of 17%, people were told, don't go there. However, and other hospitals are ready to accept only those, who is in a particularly serious condition. And these other hospitals are four hours from London.

In London, if you are sick with coronavirus, must isolate himself on 14 days. And people, with whom you live - too. Don't ask anyone for help, just waiting at home these two weeks.

If it only gets much worse, call an ambulance., and there they define, I need to go to you, or not. But until you die, the doctor will not come to you. Only those people in hospitals, who are on the verge of life and death, - says the young mother.

Public transport is empty. Seats are separated on buses, where can you sit, and where not, so that passengers keep their distance.

Anna's child - 4 of the year. At this age, little Englishmen are already studying at school. But this time things are different. As in Russia, the British announced the removal. And there, too, many parents complain, that there is no time to help children with lessons.

Many adults also work remotely. And so, who is involved in the service sector, the state compensates for interruptions in work due to the pandemic.

Many stores could not stand the coronavirus crisis and went bankrupt.

They are paid according to 80% from salary. Pay companies, and they are subsidized by the government. And all the people, who stay at home due to coronavirus, can apply for tax reductions. I cry about 30% salaries for tax, and 6% in April they will return me, - Anna describes measures to support residents.

London began to decorate for the holidays in November. But in December, when it became obvious, that there will be no public events, stopped. People are not advised to leave home unnecessarily.

Police break up youth parties and get-togethers, which take place in London anyway.

Celebrations were held only with family. Although there is no New Year's mood - not with friends, you won't see your relatives. And the feeling, that every day will be worse, and worse. There are many lonely people in London. They were told, that the holidays will have to be celebrated alone, - says Anna Shlyakhtenko-Lidster.

But there are youth, students, they want a holiday. it happens, do you hear music somewhere, and then the sirens of police cars. Such parties disperse, fines - up to one million rubles. No corporate parties. We only had it in online format. Director's speech first, something else, then they played games online - three hundred people were sitting in the "zoom". And they sent gifts to employees by mail.

Shopping malls are empty: the shops are closed.

Anna says, that there are also covid dissidents in England: people, who think, that the coronavirus does not exist, or they call it "ordinary ARVI". But there are not many of them, most understand, how dangerous is the epidemic, especially, that the rate of infection with coronavirus began to rise.

Anna has now opened an Instagram account, where he talks about, how the UK copes with adversity. The last post is pessimistic: “Sad and insulting. There seems to be a vaccine, but when this nightmare will end is unclear. Feels and facts, the situation with Covid-19 is worse now, than in April ", - she writes.
