Different from our forecast

In the end of 2020, who could imagine that many countries reintroduced strict restrictions one year later? At that time, Vaccination roll-out program started in several countries, so many people expected our life would be better in 2021 than in 2020. Of course, thanks to the vaccination program and scientific approach, we were able to enjoy our social life more in the end of 2021. However, who can imagine that some countries including the UK and Spain recorded the highest daily number of COVID cases?

As a result, government in each country made a decision to tighten its restrictions. For example, the UK government changed the traveling rules. Travelers must provide proof of a valid negative COVID-19 test result in 2 days before departure. Another example is that the Spanish government reintroduces the measure that wearing mask in outdoor spaces is mandatory. Therefore, our social life became better in 2021, but it was not still ideal one.
