Melbourne’s Short, Sharp Lockdown

“We’re all just passing time and occupy our chair very briefly.” – John Hurt

From midnight tonight up to midnight Wednesday Victoria is back to Stage 4 Restrictions Lockdown. As tough and as challenging as it is, Victoria Premier Dan Andrews announced that we are doing this to prevent a third wave. This is the B117 UK variant that is moving fast and is more transmissible and the only way to contain it is to have a short, sharp lockdown.

Was looking forward to Sunday lunch with Pat, but that unfortunately is not pushing through. So I guess no one is celebrating Valentine’s Day in Victoria.

I am just wondering when all this will end? No one can say really.

    1. We had longer lockdown before as in more than 100 days and it put the cases to 0. But this is the new strain so hopefully it gets contained. America has millions of people more than Australia so it is really hard there. Be safe Kathleen

    1. Yes V.J. all of us are in the same boat. We have new cases, we have lockdown, cases go to 0 then new strain comes out and there’s lockdown again. I just don’t know when this will end. Have a good day my friend.

    1. I also think Australia is in a much better place than most. But sometimes when we get 0 cases for a long time, we get our hopes up and then this happens again and it gets frustrating. Anyway, thanks for your words of encouragement, Shikha.
