Given that traffic pollution in the city is so bad that one thinks about continuing using one’s Covid face mask, good news that the city bus company is trialling vehicles powered by natural gas on various routes from next week. There are also electric minibuses on order for use in the old city (which is very car unfriendly, as one can imagine).

Meanwhile, talking about Covid, the latest statistics have been released, for the week ending 13 May. Not only is the illness continuing to bubble away in the background, but the number of new cases at 664 is 10 more than the previous week. There was 1 new fatality attributed to Covid, with 1 person in ICU and 48 in other hospital wards (the latter down from the previous week’s figure of 54).
