USA is going to be well beyond the tipping point by the time Biden takes office. I think his only option will be to take a huge economic hit to try to slow it down. Can’t wait for Trumps tweeting about it.

I saw news that some Melbourne businesses have been defying the rules and opening up. Hopefully they don't jeopardize the whole thing so close to easing restrictions.

People in general have had enough - Recent information has events like these running their courses in around 18 mths no matter what you do - So that puts us in this yo-yo situation until at least August / October 2021.

So think about the mantra you get from social media and in fact main stream media (especially reality tv (the voice etc)) - "Don't let anything stand in your way" - "People told me know but I kept pushing" - "I didn't give up" - Successful and the apparantly successful all talk about drive and not giving in or up - These are just everyday people now that had designs on a better life for themselves and their families and constantly being told no with the added pressure of the perception that if you do the right thing you will be safe (mask - sterilise - distance) and that if you are healthy the virus is pretty much a non event for you.

I personally know of someone who is in an industry which is way lower risk of transmission then most of the ones that are allowed to run right through shutdown. His business is about to go under, which will cost him further tens of thousands of dollars. He says he faces a $1000 fine for operating, So I don’t blame him for a second for considering breaking the rules.

You forgot a zero on that fine.

I don't know what science is behind who can open and who can't, but sometimes it appears very random which must be super frustrating for a lot of businesses and the people behind them.
