Waiting for the Second Wave

We’ve got all these covid-safe procedures at work, and this week I managed to forget to comply with them twice.

This was in no way deliberate, please understand, I’m totally in favour of keeping us all as safe as we can from the virus and willing to do my part. It’s more that I just haven’t been thinking about covid – and not because I’m unaware either, but as a defense mechanism for my sanity. Because thinking about it really gets to me.

Why? Mainly because they’re in the middle of a second wave down in Victoria, worse than the first. But also because I can see second waves starting in Hong Kong and Japan. In our neighbour Indonesia it’s raging out of control, with over a thousand new cases daily – plus they’re threatening to send all the Aussies home from Bali. So while here in Queensland we’ve been sitting for weeks on an incredible ZERO new cases in the whole state, how can that possibly be maintained, when it really only takes one infected person in the wrong place? And there’s nothing you or I can do about it, all we can do is wait and see. (And learn how to make face-masks).

So I feel like I’m in limbo, just hanging in there, trying not to think about it too much and let it get to me, while at the same time reminding myself not to get complacent and to keep following the procedures.

Hope everyone else is hanging in there too. Stay safe.

  1. I think the fact we can’t forget it keeps us doing the right thing when so many others are not. My eldest daughter is right in the firing line but it is what it is, and as long as we continue doing the right thing, I like to believe we can win this.
