It was the numbers... Basically, when the zeros ticked over it was near enough.Wink It's humans liking patterns.

I remember reading a humorous article around the turn of the millennium written by an engineer who calculated that with all the calendar readjustments and realignments over the centuries, the uncertainty of when the calendar should have started and various other things, that the turn of the third millennium was some time in October 1996 and we'd all missed it.LOL

And according to the Hebrew Calendar, today is 1 Adar, 5781, according to the Hindu calendar it's either 2077 or 1942 depending on which one you use, and using various Chinese calendars, it's 4718 or 4719, 4177, 2862, 2572, or 2242.

That's the kind of thing I know (now, anyway, didn't for years) yet always manage to forget. I guess if you hear something enough times, you do start believing it. We celebrated the turn of the millennium 1999/2000 like most. I guess 2000 just looks better to modern eyes than 2001.

UK Covid cases under 100K for the last seven days for the first time in who knows how long.

Still a long way to go but things are starting to look up for us. Weekly death total finally dropping too.

And community COVID back in New Zealand again. We can still go out and do stuff here in the South Island, but we're going to have to prepare for lockdown anyway, in case it gets here again.

First day for who knows how long that our daily cases are under 10K. Start of the week is always lower and we will almost certainly have days above 10K again this week, but this feels like a milestone. Weekly death total is also in decline. We are beating it back. And Johnston seems to finally be taking it seriously to avoid reopening too soon.

I think he wants to avoid a 4th lockdown at all costs so will take it carefully on re-opening stuff if he's got any sense. Hopefully get a bit more clarity on the 22nd.
