Every person for themself. We are told we all have needs in an order of priority and our survival is on top. We are threatened so other countries no longer count for much.
We havnt developed enough to see ouselves as a global family. Outrageous death rates almost unnoticed. Cruise ship tourists sent packing after processing. True, the cruises were a very unreasonable undertaking.
A WHO expert lost all his credibility in praising Trump for his leadership and unique national approach to Covid 19. What??

Lock down ordered yesterday but little change this morning at a large centre.. Sales persons said they dont know if their shop will shut or not.
The PM stated non essential services will close today, he ruled out supermarts, banks, fuel and pharmacies. It would have been easy to be more specific and say, for instance, whether home hardware, large clothing and variety stores were essential or not and might remain open.
At the same time, we can live with a level of uncertainty, will read between the lines, overall we are on target. There are many ways to skin a cat.

I have lived in times of earthquake, tsunami, the reconciliaton walk, 9/11 and now a pandemic. If I am still around then an asteroid is on my bucket list.

Our services are not on the back foot, we are fortunate that way. I am trialing social distance and isolation to some extent. Stocking up extra food is simply to limit my shopping trips in the event of widespread flu.

Mr Frydenberg has totally mastered the art of never answering a question in an interview. Both of them force me to switch off.
The darn surplus we were meant to have.
