The Borders are Down – Some

As of midnight last night 29 May 2020, the regional border between Perth and Geraldton (Midwest) were open and it was like all the horses bolted at once. When the news came in a few days ago, that as of midnight the travel restrictions would be lifted, people packed their caravans, motorhomes, campers and the like and hit the road. Some who were interviewed on the radio, said they got away from Perth at 4.30am to beat the rush. From all accounts there was quite a bit of traffic on the roads.

A Birthday in Troubled Times

We have had another death from the coronavirus in Australia, I know in comparison to other countries, that is very minimal, but… it is someone’s loved one, regardless of how they died and attending funerals has been very difficult as up until now, only 10 could go and you had to be invited by the family. Now 20 can go if inside and 30 if outside. Very sad indeed as there have been several funerals that we could attend of love ones and friends who have died, not necessarily by the coronavirus.

Definitely closing our international borders, our interstate borders and even regional borders has helped to stop the virus from gaining momentum here. As at the 1st May 2020, we have 551 cases in Western Australia, 511 have recovered with 8 deaths.

Just So We Never Forget

As at Easter Sunday 12th April 2020

Scott Morrison is the Prime Minister. Mark McGowan is the Premier of Western Australia. They have both been exceptional leaders during this time as I’m sure the other states and territory leaders are too. Australia has closed its borders to the world. W.A., S.A., N T. and QLD have closed their borders to the rest of Australia.
