I forbid my daughter to go to a birthday party
That was a painful decision. Half of her class will be there.
I tried to explain it to her the best I could. The cases are growing and the intubated patients' mean age is dropping, people under 40 being no longer rare. There are no available hospital beds in this city and rarely any available in the 100km radius of it. People from car accidents go to hospitals with their own transport because there are no ambulances available. Remote schooling has a reason in such circumstances.
I find it extremely irresponsible to organize a birthday party right now, even if it's technically not illegal. I'm sorry for my daughter, I know she's extremely disappointed but... there are human lives at stake :(
