Bit of a nothing day, after a transformer nearby blew up with a huge bang and we had no electric from 7 am to after 4 pm. With an almost all-electric place (we do have gas for the cooker), it’s only when it is not there that you realise how little you can do!
Meanwhile, as the WHO announces the official end of the Covid-19 pandemic (though, of course, it is still bubbling around) –
the latest report of the Department of Epidemiology says that there are 84 new cases of malaria and 2 cases of hantavirus. So far in 2023, the health ministry has confirmed 3,888 cases of malaria. It also reports a total of 1,431 confirmed cases of dengue so far this year. Despite the rain (which usually heralds the arrival of more mosquitoes), so far there we have seen fewer, none in fact – but best to touch wood having said that, I think.
