Montevideo Shopping Saturday Afternoon, One Week Into The "Sanitary Emergency"

Looking towards Montevideo Shopping from the intersection of LA Herrera and Avenida Rivera

Here are some scenes from Montevideo Shopping where Uruguay finds its people being very obedient despite calls for a forceful, mandatory quarantine being derped out by the doctor's labor union.

Looking down Luis Alberto Herrera where it intersects with Avenida Rivera. Nearly empty high traffic road, empty bus stop.

Gates Up

Access control gates up on the North Parking lot. This normally operates on a sort of voucher arrangement and fills despite the inconvenience posed by that arrangement.

Pocos coches

Abnormally, or new-normally, few vehicles parked despite the lack of restrictions.

no one

More of the new normal. Few bodies here, all of them very distantly spaced where once hundreds would have closely packed.

The main entrance to Montevideo Shopping.

The entrance to Tienda Inglesa, which is open for business. It is incredibly hard to imagine compliance with "social distancing" and "#QuedateEnCasa" would be so complete if it wasn't what the Uruguayos wanted the whole time. It is also hard to see what more the much asked for "general quarantine" order would bring other than still greater costs on a government that can't afford to spend.

    Reduced opening hours will be available on a temporary basis. In this sense, the general opening hours will be from Monday to Friday from 12:00 to 20:00, and on Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 to 20:00. In the first 2 hours, people over 65 will have priority at the cash desks of the shops. The premises of Plaza de Comidas will operate from 12:00 to 20:00 hours, and may extend their operations until 21:00 hours optionally. In the first stage, the opening of the food court will be for take-away food sales or delivery at the counter, without customers staying at the tables. In the gastronomic premises that are outside the food court will proceed in the same way only with attention to the counter, without the use of tables. Two weeks after this start, it will be possible to go on sale with the public at tables, keeping a distance of 2 metres. In the case of the gastronomic premises that are open to the outside of the shopping centre, it will be possible to make use of the tables by maintaining a distance of 2 metres between people, with a smaller number of tables and closing the access to the premises from the inside of the shopping centre.

    It would bring far greater validation to the #QuedateEnCasa lemmings' worldview acting as a sort of "tranny reparations act" -- who cares if it costs a lot and there's a grand total of like five people tops who will get a pittance from that, it's the social justice implied which counts, ofc!!1 Not only will they now be Officially Right, model citizens of the day that they formerly-perambulating meat piles are, but also they'll be able to report whoever doesn't comply. To the cops, to some government workers hired for the purpose (hey, it even stimulates the economee!), to the building administrator, to the media, to themselves, who cares, old women of all ages and sexes love righteously ratting folks out, and being the overwhelming majority that they evidently are, it would be deeply undemocratic, not to mention elitist and exclusionary not to follow through with their demands, which btw are Backed By Science. After all, they want ~you~ to be maximally inconvenienced. As punishment for not having shot them. And if they can't get away with it right now, the second wave of the flu (which kills people!!1) is right around the corner.

    As for the spending, it would be great if the government spent away each and every remnant of monetary value that can be extracted from the currency it prints. That would also usher in an era of great equality and it will no longer be just them old cunts that have no money because they suck and nobody likes them, it will now newnormally "nobody has any money because of the virus!! it was the pandemic!!1 ~we~ were saving lives!!"

  3. [...] No mandatory quarantines, no invasive surveillance state. Just an incredibly compliant population. [...]
