Hi Don ... Haven't really conversed with ya in a long time. But was thinking about you recently and wondering how you folks are faring in Brazil. Getting a bit intense here in AZ with the increasing numbers falling ill to the Covid-19 ... but we will all ... hopefully ... get through this and life will go one.

Hope this finds you well my old friend!

Don said recently Brazil is starting to take action also, try to slow down the virus. I think he might be out away from things right now, attempting to get a little gold hunting done.

Mike and RD we're like you in many ways. The Gov. here 10 days ago closed all except grocery stores and drug stores. We have two large restaurants that are delivery only or take out. I've been having lunch every day at one for five years so they take my order instead of a food display and bring my plate and food to me at a table not visible to the public. 

Less than 50% of the people on the street are wearing a mask. The local health dept. says they expect 400-500 deaths here. Many of the people are staying home since there's no where to go except to buy food. I expect any day to have a total lock down so I'm not leaving town for anything, concerned one of the cop stops won't let me back in town. 

Lunch time now, at least there's no line to stand in! Have my hand alcohol bott;e filled.

Close. It is rum. In Brasil the number the brands. #9, 29, etc. 51 is regarded as the "best". It is straight up ethanol--- mix drinks, shots, hand sanitizer, fire starter and so much more....

Here in the US, younger people who have health problems seem to be getting it worse, just as with older with bad immune systems. The infected numbers went much higher and sooner than expected. News media are really playing it up, one news headline on Internet today read 200,000 could become a new death count. They tend to exaggerate a lot, but we have a county our state, infected numbers double every 24 hours. the new death toll,

Those sound like pretty good numbers compared to the current flu season in the U.S.

38-54 million infected, 500,00 hospitalized and between 24,000 - 62,000 deaths.

All about average for this time of year.

Stay safe and keep well. Those viruses can make you miserable.

Now entering week three of lock down, starting today mask are mandatory or face fines. 

Some restaurants are going to open tomorrow anyway but they have strict guidelines from the Gov. 

Don't know if anyone is beeping or not. I'm staying close to the house.

I'm getting cabin fever. Just saw something new on virus complications, blood clots that are killing people. Virus death rate is still far lower than other leading causes-suicide, abortion, flu, accidents, etc. People only 60-62 years old been dying from virus, even getting 107 degree tempts.

UPDATE IN URUACU: restaurants are open but with absurd rules to follow. The really small cafes have their tables outside on the sidewalk and six feet apart, same in the large restaurants but they have yellow ribbon as lane markers for customers on one side of the food and the waitresses on the other side of the food and they have to get a plate for you then you point to the food you want them to put on the plate for you, then they hand the full plate to you at the end of the food line and you take your plate of food to the scales for the weigh-in since your buying food by the kilo. Then go to a table and sit down then you are allowed to remove your mask to eat. 

If no mask you don't enter the restaurant!

15:00 yesterday I went to my bank and just as I got to the door so did eight black shirt police to start writing tickets for not wearing a mask, I had mine on but two dudes in front of me didn't and they got a ticket. 

Also day before yesterday I heard this town had it's first covid 19 death. Info I got he was 49 years old. 

Guess I'll check my detector battery to see if it needs charging in case I get to use it again this year!

Yesterday I noticed a surge in traffic going by on the road in front. People must be tired of staying home, get out to drive around where ever they went.

Here's the latest going on down here, just official today. 

Health Alert - US Embassy Brasilia, Brazil (May 14, 2020)

Location : Brazil

Event:  COVID-19 Related Movement Restrictions  in Brazil

The US Mission in Brazil informs US citizens that several state and local governments across Brazil have issued decrees that restrict the movement of people in an effort to combat the spread of COVID-19.  US citizens should adhere to local laws and regulations at all times, including COVID-19 related restriction orders. 

While under these restrictions, jurisdictions may establish checkpoints and law enforcement authorities may require that traveling individuals provide identification documents and a justification for travel. Some local governments have implemented vehicle restrictions, allowing travel for certain vehicles only on designated days of the week. Some jurisdictions have implemented the mandatory use of facial masks and citizens in public without a mask may be instructed to return home. In addition, authorities may impose fines on individuals not adhering to any of the movement restrictions. 

In all locations, essential services such as supermarkets, pharmacies, and hospitals remain open for business.  

All persons in Brazil, regardless of nationality, are subject to these restrictions as well as all local laws. If you are detained or arrested, the US government can neither secure your release nor act as your legal representative.

I'm hearing crazy stories about people in store, In a town close to us, a young lighter skin black dude, about 5" 9-10" tall went in a 7/11 store for coffee.  The lady told him she could not sell him a cup without him wearing a mask. He tossed the coffee in her face then walked out. If that wasn't enough, the guy came back in 7/11 and slugger her, beat her up some more.

I think this was Texas or desert southwest, a man walked into a store wearing a scuba wet suit and mask, telling everyone to stand back. He wanted people far away from him.

New rules I think started a couple of days ago. Any police agency in this state of Goias can give a fine to

anyone seen driving a vehicle without a face mask on. A friend told me today that yesterday he was stopped by

a road block but he and his passenger both had their mask on. They also gave him a complete vehicle

inspection on the spot, his documents and the cars documents and all signal lights. He passed all!

That kind of thinking is one of the reasons we have so many deaths in this country.

Got the word today that Monday we start a lock down. Now their saying for two weeks but I don't believe it will be that short.

To many people here still not taking it serious, saw several today without their mask on. A few minutes ago I sent a message

to a police friend if there's going to any kind of enforcement with the lock down. Not heard any thing back yet.
