Now officially the busiest COVID hospital in Perth.
it’s an amazingly quiet morning. You should never say that of course as there is always a price to pay when you use the q word
The joys of teleconferencing with the mates. Sort of not socially isolating, whilst isolating.
A different form of self isolation.
I’m suddenly living another life. I know I’m not the only person in the world to do this, but it’s strange how quickly things change.
The world is falling apart, and some bits are still in denial. I find it strange how anyone could ignore this or not see it coming.
Anyway, its here now, and time will tell how bad it will become.
It all started today. The first COVID cases started hitting us. So I’m going into exile from home, so I don’t infect anyone there.
Hopefully I don’t get it either, because that is a risk.
I’m trying to be the person the hospital needs. I think I can do that. I hope I can do that for the months ahead that this is likely to run for.
And I thought I should write this here today so that one day I can look back on it all.
So much happened today. We reconfigured the hospitals on call, started a COVID clinic, and opened our first COVID ward.
I just hope it’s all enough.
There is so much to do. People to redeploy. Anxiety to quell. But at this stage I think we are getting as prepared as possible for what is coming.
Last ride today, most likely, probably for a while. Last visit to the gym for six months, I’m guessing.
Welcome to the 20’s.
This decade will be talked about for the next hundred years, just as the 1920’s were until now.
This year will be remembered for the next 100. A virus that took out economies. possibly changing the world order again.
What remains to be seen is how much it impacts Australia. This is the year that each country will stand or fall on its own.
Its all happening so quickly.
Well, it’s been a week of it. Mass ignorance followed by mass panic. I still think its the calm before the storm.
We need cooler heads to prevail. Panicking is not going to help.
At a federal level they are just starting to acknowledge this. Fortunately at a state level this has been tracked for a while.
