Yesterday, for the first time in about a month (since I last went to shop during special early opening of supermarkets for health care workers).. I was able to buy some TOILET PAPER!!! It was a four pack and it was expensive af, but doesn’t matter! I am just super grateful that we have toilet paper on our shelves again!! On a side note, I also managed to get a 500ml of hand sanitiser!
I am taking this as a sure sign that life is sure but surely returning back to normal.. Some elective surgeries are set to slowly recommence from next Tuesday in Australia. While travel bans are still in place for the moment, the daily number of new cases of Coronavirus in Australia is steadily dropping each day. This is great news for everyone, however it’s been dropping due to the social distancing that is being put into place.
Each business and place have their own levels of social distancing measures…for example, the Asian mart that I go to literally has no signs about social distancing… but then again, it is pretty quiet. However, when I went to my dermatology appointment today, WHOA…I felt like I was going through customs at the airport…! I wasn’t allowed into the practice without having sanitised my hands with alcohol gel, have my temperature checked, and signing a declaration that I hadn’t been overseas in the last 14 days or to certain areas of Adelaide where there was outbreaks of Covid 19…When all was good there was lines and glass screens which separated me and the receptionist. Anyways, when I actually got to finally see the dermatologist, he didn’t even wear gloves when injecting steroids into my ear?! And there was blood everywhere?? HUH?!
Anyways, I am looking forward to the eventual reopening of public places and hopefully GYMS and BADMINTON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hope I am not excited too early …
