  1. Not really surprised but do feel so sorry for everyone on Madeira. They tried so hard early on to keep the virus away. Everyone across Europe and UK are suffering similarly. We cannot see our son or daughter. We can only go out for essential purposes or exercise. The vaccine in our doctors’ practice is being started tomorrow so husband and I should be vaccinated by mid February. Maybe we will be able to visit Madeira by September??
