    COVID-19 / what’s your plan?

    Hey everyone,

    no pasta or rice on the shelves at the local Woolies, running low on tuna cans as well, everyone bulk buying toilet paper, no hand sanitiser left either. Seems like some panic buying.

    Kinda glad I got a replacement gas bottle earlier this week.

    What’s your plan?

    Do you have a plan?

    Mine is to shoot the Zombies as they come down the long driveway with the .223 using full metal jackets while drinking a cold beer on the verandah.

      I don't like rice or tuna , and haven't wiped my bum or sanitized my hands in years , and at my age there is no chance of me ever running out of gas !
      P.S. Visitors you have been warned !

            Hmmm...
            Nothing new about this virus except unlike the Flu Virus which kills hundreds every year in Australia (A first world country) there is currently no Vaccine which means that unlike the Flu where the majority of the vulnerable are vaccinated and therefore protected not yet for this.... Hence the increased mortality.

                    My first plan of attack is to try and not catch it, failing that of course I’ll have to hope my immune system is strong enough to fight it. And If it’s not, then no further steps are required of me at that point.



                    Honestly, my biggest concerns are for my parents and partner contracting it. My mum is 68, suffers with diabetes, COPD, heart problems and a hereditary tumor in her kidneys, neck and middle ear. And if that’s not bad enough, the tumors will turn cancerous in time if not removed.an operation is a last resort as going under will more than likely result in her death because of how bad her COPD is.



                    My Dad is 71, while he doesn’t say much about his health, I know he has slight emphysema, had a bypass and stents put in and has sleep apnea.



                    My partner has bad asthma, she’s had a heart attack and had stents put in, also she has sleep apnea.

                    She easily gets short of breath in walking short distances and/or light work.



                    I would say all three are high risk, but what do I know. It’s just the flu bro. Just like the flu we have every year, you know, the yearly flu pandemic we have that cost billions of dollars to countries that have to lock down and desperately try and contain the virus. I mean that’s a good sign that it’s not any worse than the seasonal flu, right?

                    I mean if you're a young healthy whippersnapper then sure, it’ll be mild for most, just like the flu.

                    So, while we shouldn’t panic as if it’s the end of the world and human civilization, which it most certainly won't, like wise we shouldn’t be complacent in making convid-19 equivalent to seasonal flu.



                    I know this thread is being light hearted about it while I’m being a little too doom and gloom, I’ll just lighten up a bit and just say, I just farted, and there’s a High probability it will spread.

                    Stay safe everyone.

                      Shan Thanks for sharing mate, I’m sure there are more than a few people out there with the same worries as yourself. People with elderly parents or family will no doubt be thinking similar things. This thread can be anything you want it to be. A place for humour but also a place to get your thoughts out and make some sense of them. Hopefully this forum is a place to share your concerns and vulnerabilities without fear of being ridiculed.

                        No shortage of the products you mentioned on the supermarket shelves when I was there today.
                        My concern is for my parents too as they are both over 80 now although they are in pretty good nic as my mum is a herbalist / naturepath.
                        The next few weeks will tell. ( If we should panic or not)
                        Bit worrying for most I would imagine
                        Probably should set up a bit of solar. ( I have the biz already)
                        It wont hurt to fill the gas bottles / fuel tanks. You will use it anyway

                          I went to the supermarket today & it was a disaster..Totally sold out of Coopers enhancer 2 for the second week in a row. How the hell can I make my beer if this panic buying doesn't stop.
