Wuhan,opens up after 3 months;and Dean Koonitz’s book in 1981.

Hi Colleagues, Wuhan is now open for business after 71 days of lockdown,but the rest of the world is still trying to contain the CoVid 19 pandemic.Dean Koonitz, a fiction writer,in his book published in 1981, predicted such a scenario, as you can see in the attachments.It is strange that the year 2020, the transient virus and the location( Wuhan) are all mentioned in his book.Is it a premonition or coincidence?Eddie.

Dear Colleagues,In times of uncertainty, tranquil music makes sense.From the moment I heard this, I wanted to share it with you.Originally composed by Nimal Mendis the music is relaxing.Close your eyes and imagine that you sitting by a river in a tranquil part of our home and you will no doubt feel the expression of the music and it’s title.Enjoy. Eddie.

I guess we are all in the lock down phase of getting to grips with the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.The attached clip is a diversion for all of us.These young chaps are dicing with death, in trying to catch Cobras.Is it a hobby or an occupation ? Hope it will take your mind off our current predicament in contending withis pandemic.

In New Zealand we go into phase 4 of the Pandemic plan tomorrow.No social gatherings,over 70 yr olds confined to their homes,only visits to Super markets, doctors,gas stations and pharmacies are allowed.Phase 4 is initially for 4 weeks .The police will see that the restrictions are adhered to.To date we have identified 102 cases, all in recent arrivals from abroad but there have been 2 cases with no contact history with recently returned.This makes it likely that there is community spread and the government has decided to lockdown sooner rather than later.It appears that the young have no social conscience, without restrictions and a lockdown.Over the week end, Bondi beach in Australia was teeming with people..This behaviour as well as the community spread has resulted in our decision.I think it is a good decision by our PM as otherwise we may end up like in Italy and Spain.!!

I have posted this as a distraction away from the boredom that is to come with self quarantine.Keep well, Enjoy the time at home and keep well. Keep in touch through our blog wheneverbyou have the time.Take care of yourselves.Eddie.
