It seems like is getting bad over there with the virus and getting worse. I hope you are all staying out of harms way.

We are doing pretty well. Nearly all our cases are people returning from overseas, particularly USA. We have very low infections transmitted locally.

Of our over 2,000 cases, only 190 needed to be admitted to hospital and only 17 of those had you go to ICU to be put on a ventilator.

I feel really sad for anyone in Italy or Spain. It must be pretty scary in those countries.

All the best and stay well

In the states I do not think we really know how we feel. My family has been self-quarantined for about a week, except that we went to the grocery store four days ago; does that mean that we need to start a fourteen day regimen again? And we have not been tested; however, 90% of those tested so far are negative.

So who knows? All I know is that I want to go back to work.

I am lucky:
I can work from home
I already homeschool my children so no disruption in education

others not so fortunate here in the USA

As nearly all our cases have been imported from overseas. Particularly from the USA. Thanks for sharing. Most things are still open, including schools, but people are doing the right thing and only going out when necessary. We have shut social gathering points like clubs, pubs, casinos, restaurants, etc.

But we have good state and federal governments where the leaders meet regularly and we have consistent actions across the whole country. This stops any rouge areas that do not want to go far enough or too far.

So I am about to go to the hardware store to get something I need and then to the supermarket.

If you have free time, you can read about how Americans are responding to the social distancing and isolation orders.

sometimes I am embarrassed of the USA’s inhabitants. There are a lot of good people here, but even more idiots.

I watch the PBS Newshour each day, so I get at least 1 perspective of what is happening in the USA. As I previously posted, the Sate and Federal leaders here are all speaking in the same voice with the same rules nationally. The police are enforcing the self quarantine and other rules. I believe that people are getting the message to take this virus seriously.

Even though our retail shops are not required to close, many are now closing because they have no customers. They are all staying at home. The supermarkets are still very busy, the traffic in hardware stores are down but reasonable as they have things that you need now rather than things you can put off like buying clothes, furniture, electronics, etc.

I did see a USA news item where your gun stores had long queues outside. Obviously people think that either the virus can be killed with a gun, or the victims turn into zombies.

oh, I must confess, I bought a few thousand rounds for my AR, my shotgun, and my 9mm also. It’s not to fight the virus (or zombies), but to protect oneself against mob mentality due the mass majority of Americans being dumb as a rock and shepherded by fear.

I also filled up all of my rotopax jugs in case somewhere else becomes more appealing
