Does anyone know anyone that has the virus ?? A friend of a friend ?? Hearing all these stats but no one knows anyone that has it .
Our neighbour is a nurse at the Royal Adelaide Hospital and her sister (also a nurser) works in the intensive care unit. They both been working with a number of infected cases.
Never knew so many people owned dogs prior to to this pandemic .......One upside. I have seen more families, especially kids, walk past my place in the last couple of weeks than in the last couple of years.
Just like the old days. Families walking instead of driving. They even stop and chat and I also met a bloke who has lived around the corner for years .
People walking to the park, shopping, etc. instead of driving past trying to kill someone just to go there and fight over a parking spot.
Did the old crab apple tree stump up, tree fell over, for people to stop and look at especially the kids.

Yep, parent's village back in the UK (about 85% of which are over 70, including my parents) have 2 cases. Basically those under 60 (so about 6 people...) are doing the running into town for the rest of the village, combined with a lot of home delivery shopping.
Chatting to my neighbour last night, his brother and Mrs has got it, they were on a cruise, he wanted to get off at Auckland due to this mess, she cracked it and wanted to stay on.
I fit in the "friend of a friend" camp hah... I don't personally know either of them, but a colleague of my Fiance (the colleague is in Sydney) and a good friend of one of my colleagues (the friend is in the UK) have both been confirmed as having it.
Good luck with it all Warby. Just remember mate, it’s all good. Enjoy the bub.One big positive for me personally through this has been working from home for the past couple of weeks, until further notice. My Fiance is giving birth on Monday so being home with her has been very handy right now and made the whole thing a lot less stressful for her. It also means that I will only need to take a couple of days off, which is a big help financially as a contractor - more days, more pays.
Im not a cyclist, but in my area in Perth I havent noticed much of a drop in traffic. Sure its not quite as busy, but certainly far from dead.I'm not sure how much kindness has increased with the Covid-19 outbreak, but there are some good stories getting some good coverage.
From strangers buying each other's groceries to neighbours leaving flowers for one another, Facebook group The Kindness Pandemic is amplifying positive moments happening amid the coronavirus pandemic.www.sbs.com.au
I went for a couple hour cycle ride this morning to get some exercise and although I expected the roads and town to be quiet, it was eerily dead. No chance of me being bowled off my bike by a truck or caravan is a good thing for me!
I did expect to see more people out walking to get some exercise, but there were hardly any. I rode streets without seeing a person or moving vehicle. It seems the locals are being very compliant, interpreting the stay at home message as 'stay locked indoors'.
What a pleasure it was to round one corner and see two kids playing on bikes and drawing with chalk on a deserted street - reminded me of 'the old days' when kids were allowed to play in the street in front of their home!
