Hospitals are stepping up measures

I had to go back to hospital today to have my surgical wound re-dressed, and I noticed quite a few changes from only 2 days ago.

Starbucks has closed

There isn’t a single Starbucks in my area that has stayed open during the pandemic. Reports have said that “more than half” have been closed, but I suspect that this is downplaying the situation.
If there are any left open at all, they’re not anywhere near me.

Back to Work

The Chinese New Year holiday comes to an end for many businesses starting on Monday (February 3rd 2020).

Going forward

I will continue to live my life in “bunker mode”, only leaving the apartment to re-dress my wound at the only hospital in the city that will see me.
(Most won’t see me for non-emergency and non-viral reasons).

I write articles that inform and delight from my anti-virus bunker in Shanghai, China. 🇦🇺 🇨🇳
