The only reason why we might have a case is that someone working in hotel quarantine might have been exposed by returning citizens. All very controlled here, and life is fairly normal. We are fortunate.



    With the news of Michaela Gudinski's death, I would think she would want to be close to family.
    Sad news re Michael Gudinski, she is in a sad place at the moment so who knows. I still think she may make and appearance.

    ha ha don't hate. We are very lucky in Australia, we have shut down the borders, we have zero local cases and if there was a break out, we have the best tracing in place.

    Australia has 10 new cases a day and no serious critical...
    I'm sure the regular flu over there is now 1000 times more deadly

    Ooh wait, there has been no regular flu the last 12 months

    Australia has been an example in how to handle this. We are just destroyed over here. I'm closing my businesses myself this year. There just is no use.
    I have a lot of left over friends from my dj years, Dj's party organizers and club owners. It will be exacly one year in 12 days since they closed. Poor guys. I know it's similar everywhere else, but Belgium has been the strictest after Australia, but always too late.

    Oh no I feel so sorry and sad for you reading this I wish I could do something to help it always breaks my heart when I see businesses forced to closed permanently. Iím dealing with unemployment so I can totally sense your frustration

    I know many businesses in Australia have also been forced to shut due to struggling. Nearly every city in Australia literally feels like a ghost town as compared to normal, especially Sydney and Melbourne which used to be very packed.

    Omg I didnít even know the gay parade was still on. I avoid gay places and Mardi Gras anyway as they always makes me feel depressed about not being hot, especially seeing hot gay couples everywhere.

    Belgium has been the most strict, after Australia? Where on earth are you getting that from?
