One last blast. Manchester City was completely shocked.
Millions of people across major towns and cities across the north of England know that they are facing tighter and stricter restrictions early next week – which is why they are taking full advantage this weekend.
In Manchester, stream Corona Virus A hotspot and university city with tens of thousands of students, it is incredibly busy until 10pm.
Bars, restaurants and hookah cafes are fully stocked.
Obviously, people just want one last solution before they get down to what feels like a second shutdown.
In the city center, pubs and bars were at full capacity on a Friday evening – it was nearly impossible to get a reservation at a restaurant.
The shisha cafes on the infamous Curry Mile, a nickname for a portion of Wilmslow Road in south Manchester, were as busy as the Eid holidays.
Business here is booming, but at 10 pm the house lights are on, the music is turned off and people are coming out of places like sheep.
But then you hear questions like “Where do we go now?” And “What do we do next?”
People are walking the streets aimlessly trying to decide on their next move, after all on a Friday, the night is still young.
On the Curry Mile, traffic was full of bumps as hundreds of cars left at once.
A group of women told us, “We had to do this tonight or else we wouldn’t see each other for weeks.”
A man who just left a pastry shop told us, “Everyone knows these places will be completely closed next week, so this weekend is going to be bananas.”
Places have measures in place, and QR codes are everywhere, but people don’t seem to be worried about the virus.
Social distancing is pretty much nonexistent and few even wear masks in and out of these places.
Someone told us, “I’m not as anxious as I was in the first round, I don’t need to.”
And while some businesses are losing their habits due to the 10 p.m. curfew, many are still incredibly happy that he’s so busy – they also want the most cash on bills before they close completely, so who knows for how long?
It’s hard to blame anyone here, what people do is not illegal, they are not breaking the rules by going out to eat, drink and hookah – but while all this is happening, the virus is spreading all over the world in northern England, especially in Manchester, where it is transmitted Persons to hospital again.
This is the source of concern here and this is one of the main reasons the government will have to take action next week.
