COVID-19 - Check-in

Post by tr1p1ea »

I hope everyone is going OK regarding COVID-19? Particularly those who reside in countries that are affected more than others.

Let me know if you need anything.

We've hit record amounts of daily cases over here as the second wave hits, especially in my city and Montreal, but so far they didn't put everything in lockdown like during the first wave. Stores are open, restaurants offer takeout/delivery and we can go out, but bars, theaters and sport venues are closed.

As I am disabled and cannot work, COVID pretty much changed nothing for my finances, although I noticed that grocery stores increased their prices.

Dang that sucks - hopefully in the last month things have gotten better DJ?

Also that's a low act by grocery stores, raising prices in a crisis. Some governments instituted price freezes for staple items, which was a good move.

Here in Aus things are getting better, my state hasn't had a new case for 17 days now.

Over here it got worse in Alberta province, but in Quebec the amount of new cases per day has been steady for almost 3 months now. In my city things seems to get better, though.

Any progress? Hope everyone is going ok.

In Australia we are mostly over it with a few cases emerging from returning international travelers ... but as we know it doesn't take long for it to get out of control.

It kind of got out of control during the holidays but in recent days daily cases have gone down significantly. Keep in mind we have a curfew now, though (8 PM to 5 AM). With vaccines coming in at an increasing rate I'm kinda optimistic, though.
