Monday, Day Zero again

Two more cases related to known ones. Blargh. Meanwhile, anti-lockdown protesters in Brisbane are trying so very hard to get more lockdown. Way to go, people. The reason you think the plague is a hoax is because you were protected by the firkin lockdown. Gah.

Around and around and around and around...

Vaccine talk is increasing globally and it's plausible that, in a few short months, the anti-vaxxers will be the biggest problem in stopping the plague.

I still say Hoaxers should be put on bedpan duty in the covid wards. One way or another, it will shut them up.

And so on! Hurrah!’ —Sir Terry Pratchett,
