    Positive?
    Sons already got 3 months left at his work. I'd say if it goes like last time, many businesses will fold, wage help or not, that doesn't pay all their bills.

    i'm almost on the border. staff are having to go back and forth through the check points, which slows the work down a bit.
    we are essential work anyway but having to deal with check points and traffic is a problem.

    So why are they panic buying? Surely they have enough in their pantry to keep them going for a week at least. And why do they buy up many packs of toilet paper? What's so special about bog rolls? So why don't they do as they are being advised: shop normally? Can't understand them.

    A friend who works at a supermarket said it was mainly just one race panic buying, literally going from one supermarket to another cleaning out the shelves .
    Must be a culture thing. I guess if we came from a communist country with a past history of food shortages (to the point of starving) we'd have a different perspective .

    Its the mad rush to get a covid test that I cant understand.
    If you have zero symptoms , why would you que up for 1/2 a day to try & get a test.

    Covid : the virus where you require a test to tell if you're sick or not .
    The cats out of the bag now. I think its time to get a grip on the reality that we cant beat this virus . Do we go into lockdown every other month for the
    next 2-3 years , or just accept that we cant keep it out & cope the best we can.

    Like hell.
    My mum DID come from one. Before she left she said you'd queue, get 1/2 loaf bread and a cabbage, if you were in the first 1/2 of queue. Those at back got nothing.
    She has not panic bought a thing. Nor wants to. She thinks they're all mad.

    More like some people are stupid...especially toilet paper........
