They didn’t wear mask because “freedom”…
As an Australian it’ll be how well we’ve dealt with covid 19 so far as a country. And yes, there have been some mistakes that cost a lot of lives and a lot of hardship.
But generally speaking we could have done a lot worse.
Perhaps it’s what I’m trying to tell people right now.
You think we’re “turning the corner” on this? Think again. I’m a little over 2 weeks into a new job. Working at a factory assembling N95 masks. They’re hiring like crazy. New people come in every few days, and we’re still not keeping up with demand. The place where I work has been dormant since the end of the Cold War but has been repurposed to crank out masks. 600,000 a day. And we’re just one factory of many.
Keep your hands and feet inside the ride at all times, folks. This is far from over.
I don’t want to remember this goddamn pandemic. It shut down my industry, locked up my state, and essentially left me homeless for a little while. I’ve been living with my folks since March doing piece-meal work while renovating my van and waiting for event contracts to come back. It took a particularly steaming shit on my life, at a stage where I was set to really start enjoying it after years of preparing for the life I wanted to lead.
Fuck Covid man.
Provided your job is doable from home, remote working is a viable option, pandemic or not.
In other words, screw commutes.
