    As of mid- to late July, roughly the 20th if I remember correctly, metropolitan Melbourne reimposed a stricter variant of stage 4 epidemiological public health measures—including an 8pm - 5am curfew & mandatory mask wearing in public—in response to a second wave of infection.

    A state of disaster was announced on August 2nd.

    A summary of Victoria's stage 4 restrictions, which ranked among the toughest & longest in the world, can be found here.

    Metropolitan Melbourne remained in stage 4 until the 26th - 27th of October. It was during this time in late October that Melbourne recorded 0 new cases & 0 deaths statewide for the first time since early June.

    Ultimately, & thus far, Australia has seen a total case number of 27,784 (Victoria 20,345), total deaths 907 (Victoria 819), & as of yesterday 94 active cases (Victoria 3)

    Stepping back so to obtain perspective, Australia has a population of 25 million, & Victoria 6.4 million.

    From a societal point of view tensions remain high, many households are divided, & public opinion remains polarised, though ebbs & flows ever so slightly from one day to another when concerning the arguments for & against the duration & the degree of implemented public health measures.

    The opposing pro-lockdown & anti-lockdown sides (which more often than not map onto political affiliation) resent one another, & have had their hands wrapped tightly around the other's throat for almost 6 months, & they continue to slowly squeeze.

    Some of the ICUs in Alabama are already at 100% capacity, but they’ve loosened restrictions. Hard to believe, but true.

    Red, Sending you a bear hug. We’ll get through this. Afterall, we ARE getting through this.

    I’m not adjusting to the seasons changing. Well,that’s what I’m blaming my insomnia on. If I sleep to 3:00am it’s a win.
